GENERAL HOSPITAL: Bradford Anderson's Finale! An Emotional Spinelli Says,"Goodbye My Maximista!"

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

We heard from so many fans on social media yesterday that they were touched and reaching for the hankies during the final scenes between Spinelli and Maxie during the last episode of Bradford Anderson’s (Spinelli) on General Hospital!

In it, Spinelli brings baby Connie, now going to be named baby Georgie, to see Maxie (Kirsten Storms) one last time before they leave for Portland.  Due to Ellie’s  (Emily Wilson) work schedule, the couple has to leave tonight.   Thus, paving the way for the emotional final scenes between Spinelli and Maxie, played to perfection (for years ) by Kirsten Storms and Anderson.

GH pulled at the viewers emotional heartstrings by giving us the montage of the relationship over the years of Spixie!  The duo even have a true heart to heart about their feelings for each other,  and how their friendships changed their lives.  Spinelli says Maxie is the first girl he truly ever loved.  And with that, they share a kiss!   However, Maxie realizes that kiss is not going to change the course of what is happening now.  Spinelli is leaving to be with Ellie, and for now have sole custody of baby Georgie until the judge re-addresses Maxie’s parental rights six months from now.

But the real kick in the gut, that surely opened the floodgates for long time fans of the couple, was when Spinelli says that Maxie, “Will always have a piece of his heart.”   That is followed by Maxie giving the two ballet slipper Christmas ornaments that were hers and her sister, Georgie’s when they were babies.   She tells Spinelli she wants her daughter to have them.   He replies he will take one, and that she should keep one when for when she shares Christmas with their baby.    And then came the final goodbye in the doorway when Spinelli says one last time to Maxie, “Goodbye my Maximista!”  Kudos to Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms for giving GH viewers one goodbye they will never forget!

I dont know about Ellie but im certain Spin might agree to some guest appearances in the future when Maxi is allowed visitation rights to the baby…unless Ellie and Spin end up missing after a plane crash and the baby, who survives, is eventually returned to Maxi!

they should have given him at least two days to say goodbye to all his friends. He was cheated, and so were we.

It was a heartfelt goodbye..
It was emotional for Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms.
Both were feeling their personal ‘goodbye moment’, the tears were not from acting………………………imo

I will dearly miss Spinelli, he brought such great acting to GH. He and Maxie made a great fairytale couple. I wished they could have had their “happilly ever after” and stayed with the show. Anxious to see what is in store for Maxie now on GH. Good bye Spinelli may you may you leave many more great footprints for all of us to enjoy!!!!

That scene made all the woman in my family tear up and funny thing is none of us liked spinnelli when he first came on now we all hate to see him go!

I love Spinelli. He is the most unique actor I have ever seen. He is the whole package. He is funny, dramatic, emotional, believable, unique, I could go on and on and anybody that has watched him knows what I am saying is the truth. He will not be replaced. Bradford played him as only he can do. I keep losing what I love about daytime television, eventually there will be nothing left worth watching. Blessings to you Bradford in all that you do, you will be missed.

I totally agree with all you said.
Daytime television is losing it’s hold. Not so sure I’ll record the show to watch later anymore. Not a good move for them to do this……

BA and KS had a wonderful send off…

I had a tear in my eye….

Ron wrote a good piece….

But it makes me think of SB send off

I thought the show was great. Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms did a great job. The scenes were excellent. That said, why or why did GH rush this exit. I am very unset about that. Spinelli (and Bradford) should have been allowed several days to leave town and say goodbye to his friends. Since Ellie was flying, she did not need his help. He has many, many friends in Port Charles and things to take care of before he would leave. I’m sure he has things, money in the bank, etc. This was ridiculously fast. Reminds me of a scene I just saw on soapnet where Marcie and Michael leave LLanview in a day. What on earth were the powers to be thinking when they decided to get rid of Spinelli. Yes, there were some great episodes and drama. But I’m angry they got rid of the character. The plane better not crash.

Someday we will see Spin again 🙂
FV and RC do not kill off charterers of ‘value’ ….
He didn’t kill’
Faison (no way is he dead)
Jerry

SB left, no body
Anyway.. FV and RC do not kill-off the great ones..
Robin was killed because KMc wanted to be killed-off, but yet FV and RC could let her be dead (what a shame) and kept her alive..
so, Spin might very well return someday.. 🙂

I really hate it when the characters leave the soap, I love Spinelli, maybe he will return without Ellie and him and Maxie will get back together

Really liked the way he grew into a real ‘man’ over the years…. hope they give it some time and lure him back with a terrific story once Kristen comes back from her maternity leave!

They somehow “work” as a couple

I will SO miss Spixie! That baby is adorable! Down the road we can hope for an off screen split of Ellie and Damian and a return to Port Charles of Spinelli and Georgie. 🙂

I am so very sad to have Bradford leaving… I love the character Spinelli and I adore Kirsten’s character Maxie. Am a huge SPIXIE fan and am so sad we are not gooing to get SPIXIE again. Bradford is so very talented and I am happy for him if this is what he wants. I will miss Spinelli incredibly!

Bradford did a stunning job on Monday’s show… as did Kirsten!!! Whoever did the montage of SPIXIE made me very happy… there were two scenes from one of my favorite shows… 12/23/08… the Spinelli/Maxie and Santa episode… that I will be watching before Christmas as it is soooooo good!

I hope Bradford comes back with Georgie in the near future!!!

As for Emily’s character Ellie… she did a very good job… but I couldn’t root for her because I wanted SPIXIE back again!!!

I wish Bradford and Emily the best of luck and hope they find work very soon!!!

Wow.
This is the way to do a send off. Wanting more, but all that a scene could be. And and an open door for the future. And a reminder that friendships is the core of any relationship and can even survive soap opera twists and turns.

That was a fantastic goodbye scene, very moving and gut wrenching. It’s just too bad that we have to lose an actor of Bradford’s calibre but I can understand his leaving. these actors have to earn a living. They can’t be put on the back burner for months at a time and hope to support a family.

I think the finial moment was great. This year has been very hard for me. I loved Connie and now she is gone. What are you all thinking? Bring them back. Good Luck to All and Thank you for sharing your lives with us. I have really enjoyed you.

I have watched GH forever. Spinelli and Maxie have been one of my favorite couples. I can’t believe Bradford is leaving. The characters had such a fairytale love and always hoped they would get back together.

Sorry to see him go. As someone who “found” GH again Nov. 2012 after years of not watching, his character was new to me and took a while to appreciate. But later, I did and now I will miss Spinelli.

I just loved Maxi and Spinelli together and am really going to miss them. They were the ones I always looked forward to watching and was so sad when Ellie came along. I think she did a great job but I could never root for them because I wanted Spixie to be together.
Kirsten and Bradford did an amazing job with the final scene. Just wish he wouldn’t be leaving.

I very much liked Spinelli and very sorry to see him leave, but this new Spenelli, I didn’t like him on DOOL and I like him even less playing Spenelli’s part on GH.

I loved Spenelli playing that part. The new guy I didn’t like on DOOL. Like him even less on GH.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

Photo: JPI

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Photo: JPI

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
