Romantic drama has always been a huge part of daytime soaps. It isn’t juicy unless there is some sort of love triangle going on, and juicy, romantic drama is what we are going to get where Nathan, Maxie, Spinelli, and Ellie are involved.
Ellie Trout is back in Port Charles, just in time to mix things up with the love triangle going on between Spinelli, Maxie, and Nathan. Ellie and Spinelli just recently broke up because Ellie felt that Damian was still in love with his first love and mother of his child, Maxie. Maxie was involved in a fairly new relationship with Detective Nathan West when Spinelli came back to Port Charles to profess his love for Maxie. He wants to be a family with Maxie and their daughter Georgie. After some resistance, and after her boyfriend Nathan told her she should take some time to make a decision, Maxie chose Spinelli.
Literally the moment Maxie and Spinelli declared being together again, Nathan knocked on her door, asking to get back together. Not long after that, Ellie shows up in Port Charles. General Hospital spoilers indicate that Nathan and Ellie will get together. Nathan will escort Ellie to the Nurses Ball this year. General Hospital rumors have been circling, claiming that Nathan and Ellie’s involvement together will make both Maxie and Spinelli jealous. This love triangle just added a fourth element, a square perhaps? Now that Ellie has put herself into an already complicated situation, Maxie and SPinelli may rethink their recent decision to be together.
What do you think about Nathan and Ellie becoming a romantic couple? Is it time to call them “Nellie” yet? Maybe their date to the Nurses Ball will evolve into something more, or maybe it will a catalyst to Maxie realizing she wants to be with Nathan, and Spinelli realizing he wants to get back together with Ellie.
General Hospital spoilers have revealed that actress Emily Wilson (Ellie Trout) has made an announcement to Soap Opera Digest that she was asked to reprise her role as the quirky, nerdy, lab genius, and girlfriend of Damian Spinelli.
As we know, Ellie and Spinelli moved to Portland Oregon for to pursue Ellie’s career. Spinelli was granted custody of his daughter, baby Georgie, and she lived with the intelligent pair. Since then, the two broke up and Spinelli has moved back to Port Charles with his daughter, and he, Georgie, and Maxie are currently back together as a family.
Ellie will make her way to Port Charles tomorrow, April 14th. Emily Wilson tells Soap Opera Digest, “I’m so excited! Ellie has such a special place in my heart and I was so happy that they’ve asked me to come back. I’ve kept in touch with Bradford (Anderson, Spinelli), and Kirsten (Storms, Maxie), Teresa (Castillo, Sabrina), and Marc (Anthony Samuel, Felix), but everyone there feels like family to me at this point. It was such a great feeling to walk back into the building!”
Maxie has finally given in to her feelings to her old flame, her essential person, Spinelli. Now that Ellie is back in the picture, will she be a threat to their relationship?
Last week General Hospital brought back one of the fan’s most favorite characters, Damien Spinelli and his counterpart Ellie Trout (Emily Wilson). Good friend Carly really needed Spinelli’s help to solve the mystery that involved Ava, AJ, and Sonny. Spinelli’s tech support never falls short when his friends are in need.
Spinelli and Ellie left Port Charles to move to Portland Oregon to chase Ellie’s dream job, running her own lab. However, they didn’t move to Portland alone. Since Spinelli was granted custody of baby Georgie, his and Maxie’s baby girl, the three of them said goodbye to their loved ones in Port Charles and started a new life. The court had ordered that Maxie be reevaluated in 6 months, with the potential of getting custody of her daughter. Now that those 6 months are up, we may be seeing a lot more of Spinelli.
With the Maxie/Georgie custody story line in the works, Spinelli may just have to be front and center for again for a while. Not only does the story seem to be leading towards a Spinelli return, but the actor himself has divulged his thoughts on the idea. Ina recent interview for Soaps in Depth, actor Bradford Anderson made it clear that we would want nothing more than for his character of 8 years Damien Spinelli, to return to the GH canvas. Bradford Anderson told Soaps in Depth about the arrangement that he has with the show, “I think [what just aired] was to establish Spinelli and Ellie in the reality of living in Portland and keeping us on the canvas [in some way]. I think that’s nice! When I left, they very clearly said there was an open door. So by establishing us where we are and having people still use Spinelli for things, that means they can call me any time.”
Fans have been giving positive feedback ever since Spinelli and Ellie were brought back to the screen last week. If you would like to see Bradford Anderson/Damien Spinelli return to General Hospital full time, please let us know by commenting below and sharing this post.
