Spinelli Professes His Love, Who Will Maxie Choose?

Fans who have been supporting Nathan (Ryan Paevey) and Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) relationship from the very beginning might be biting their lips right now, nervous that the new romance won’t even stand a chance now that Spinelli is back. Some fans who have been on the Naxie bandwagon since Nathan arrived supported the couple because it was second best to Spixie. Others just remained hung up on Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie’s love story and didn’t want to accept that Maxie would move on with anyone.

When Spinelli and Ellie (Emily Wilson) still lived in Port Charles, Maxie was the one professing her love to Spinelli. She told him after all they had been through that she had wanted him back, and he rejected her love and chose Ellie. The two moved to Portland Oregon so that Ellie could pursue her career at the local hospital lab. Maxie was left alone in her thoughts of being rejected, and alter finding out that she lost custody of her own daughter to Spinelli.

Now that Maxie has finally put her life back together with the help and support of those who love her, including Nathan West, she had the courage to move on romantically. Nathan and Maxie have a large adoring fan base, but is it as strong as the 8 year romance that had developed between Maxie “Maximista” and Damian Spinelli. Today they have an even stronger bond, their daughter Georgie (Harper Rose Barash).

Spinelli is back in Port Charles and since Christmas, he has had a lot to think about. While still with Ellie, she pointed out to Spinelli that he and Maxie look like they belong together, as a family, with their daughter. Spinelli has now confessed his feelings for his Maximista, and since Nathan and Maxie aren’t seeing eye to eye over Johnny Zacchara (Brandon Barash), will this be the gateway for a Spixie reunion? Maxie said it herself, no one knows her the way Spinelli knows her. and accepts her the way she is. Does Nathan have it in him to love Maxie as selflessly as Spinelli does?

Let us know what you think! Would you like to see Maxie move on from Spinelli with Detective Nathan West, or would you like to see Spinelli and Maxie be a family with their daughter Georgie?

General Hospital Spoilers: Nathan Gets Closer To Fluke’s True Identity!

This has to be the most confusing story line mysteries in General Hospital history. Even with what was supposed to be the huge revelation of Fluke’s true identity LAST Friday, confusion still remains. After Dante woke up from being unconscious, and saw a rotten corpse in the chair he expected to see his father-in-law, Luke Spencer, fans were led to the conclusion that Fluke and Luke are one in the same.

Recent General Hospital spoilers entertain the idea that Nathan will go to his mother, Dr. Leisl Obrecht for answers, getting closer to the true identity of Fluke. As Chief of Staff, Dr. O has the free reign of General Hospital, taking Nathan into the lab. Obrecht lets her son in on a little secret as she tells him, “All the answers you seek about Luke Spencer will be found here.”  Dr. Obrecht has been entangled with the Cassadine’s and the evil work of Faison for quite some time. She told Nathan that his father was Victor Cassadine, but we the audience know that isn’t the truth. Obrecht admitted that Nathan’s father is far worse than Victor.

Just how much does Dr. O know about Helena and Fluke? Will Nathan learn that Fluke’s identity is far more worse than everyone actually thought?

The Most Hated Man on General Hospital

Throughout General Hospital’s 51 years of existence, there have been many types of characters to leave their mark in Port Charles and in the hearts and minds of the fans. Whether they have left lasting impressions or simply passed on through, there are definitely certain characters that can never be forgotten.

It’s actually difficult to remember the last time a fan reaction to a new character has been this strong. No matter which form of social media you have stumbled upon, the fans are all in an uproar about one thing. From Instagram to Facebook, from Twitter to Tumblr, fans across the board seem to share the same opinion on these two words… Levi Dunkleman. Dunkleman is being shredded to pieces by GH fans of all ages.

Look what the cat dragged in… Maxie Jones went on her self discovery retreat after she lost custody of her baby girl, Georgie. Maxie was broken. She had just lost her best friends Dante and Lulu after agreeing to be their surrogate and lying by letting them believe the baby she was carrying was actually theirs. It turned out that the baby girl Maxie was supposed to be carrying for Dante and Lulu was actually a precious miracle she and Spinelli created on New Years Eve. Maxie didn’t want to hurt her friends and tell them she wasn’t pregnant with their child. She decided to be selfless and give up her own daughter to give to her best friend. When her plan unfolded, Maxie was lost. She lost her great love Spinelli to Ellie, Dante and Lulu, and the custody of Georgie to Spinelli. She was in a dark place and when she left she was vulnerable and convinced that she needed to become a better person. She met Levi and let him into her life. He has basically brainwashed her into thinking exactly the way he does. He has manipulated her out of being with her daughter among other ways of life that the Maxie we used to know would never be a part of.

Recently, Michael Fairman interviewed Zachary Garred on “Playing the Most Despised Man on General Hospital…Levi Dunkleman.” In the interview Fairman caught up with the Australian-American actor and found out his thoughts on playing such a hated character and what he thinks of the negative feedback. Garred disclosed that when he was cast to play the role of Levi Dunkleman, executive producer Frank Valentini warned him not to play the “cliche hippie angle because it’s already there.”

Zachary had some great insight on fan reactions to Levi Dunkleman, he told Michael Fairman, ” When I started acting I think I was like 15 or 16 years old when I had just my first audition. The response you generally want to get is that you just want people to have an opinion on the character, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s good or bad.  If everyone liked the characters … you wouldn’t have some of the greatest movies in history!” Obviously Zachary Garred is portraying Levi Dunkleman EXACTLY as he should. We all love to hate this character which means the actor is going his job with passion, emotion, and putting his whole self into the role.

Garred also tells Michael Fairman that he was not told exactly what type of character he was going to be playing when he was cast in the role of Levi Dunkleman. He said that all Frank Valentini said to him was not to play cliche. He mentioned that Head Writer, Ron Carlivati gives him great material and that working opposite “the gorgeous genetically spectacular Nathan (Ryan Paevey),” really works for the character. Nathan is supposed to be this Knight in Shining Armor type while Levi is this underhanded manipulative snake. When these two are constantly being pinned against each other, it helps the Levi character’s true colors shine.

He also went on to joke about Maxie’s apartment being hashtag “shirt off apartment” and that his first scene was Levi coming out in a towel!

Zachary had great things to say about his co-star, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones). When Michael Fairman asked Garred how it is to work with Kirsten, Garred responded, “She is a gem! The thing about Kirsten is: for someone her age she has so much experience in this industry, and as actress so many mediums.  I am very lucky to have been paired up with Kirsten and Ryan in story, and Ryan was fairly new to the show when I came on too.  So we are so lucky because the fans love of Maxie, and Kirsten is such a beautiful, sweet, funny person. We all get along like a house on fire away from work.  We hang out at Kirsten’s place with her and Brandon Barash and their daughter Harper as well.   So to have the camaraderie as well off-screen it helps at work.”
