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.
