GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nathan Comes Clean About His Past To Maxie!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Monday’s episode of General Hospital saw the launching pad for the upcoming summer storyline that will definitely feature Bree Williamson (incoming Claudette), Ryan Paevey (Nathan), Molly Burnett (as temporary Maxie) and most likely Matt Cohen (Griffin), by deducing the secret that Nathan spilled to Maxie (Kirsten Storms).

In story, Nathan confesses to Maxie about his past with Claudette, and that their relationship had been imploding.  He began drinking one night after believing she had been cheating on him, although he had no proof.  Another time, he got called into the police station unscheduled to work, and then went out afterwards with some of the guys and got wasted.  When he returned home he found Claudette in bed with another man.  Nathan took out his gun and blindly shot at the guy.   However, Nathan doesn’t remember much after that, because he passed out.  When he awoke he saw blood on the sheets, but the guy was gone and he never saw him, nor did anyone ever press charges agains him, nor did he report it.

Maxie is more than upset saying that Nathan is not the man she thought he was.  She needs to go spend the night elsewhere, and that this secret could come back to bite them.

From all likelihood it would appear Griffin has to be the man Nathan shot, who never pressed charges.  After all, Griffin recognized Nathan a few months ago with a knee-jerk reaction, and has that bullet wound scar to prove it.

Watch Nathan’s admission to Maxie after the jump!  Are you rooting for Maxie and Nathan to get through this rough patch in their relationship?  Does the reveal pique your interest for the emergence of Claudette on to the scene? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I’m surprised Griffin had the energy for a romp in the sack with Claudette, what with becoming a priest and a doctor at the same time- LOL.

That said I really don’t see where this story can go– Claudette comes back, then what? Is she going to have a relationship with Nathan or Griffin? If so who cares— are they going press charges now after all this time? What is the point of this story? There isn’t one except to provide a temporary obstacle in Nathan and Maxie’s relationship– it is such contrived nonsense– why can’t one soap couple have normal obstacles to overcome–sign. This is sounds like another one of these dead end stories that they will make up as they go along trying to make more interesting but never will be— like the whole fiasco that is Hayden Barnes

She will probably have had a child…is it Grif’s or Nate’s…and Grif is obviously the person he shot…and i dont really care!!!…and what makes the story less interesting is it will be a different Maxie dealing with Claudette!!!

Celia
Celia

Yeah, Jimmy. But, I find this story interesting because Griffin’s mysterious past attracted me from the onset. There is an enigmatic air about him. However, without Kirsten, the story’s complexion becomes pale in contrast. So, my interest may dissipate, albeit I like this story…….it holds promise.
I will say it again, I am not sure if Molly was the best choice here. We shall see. Maybe she’ll surprise us.

Justin
Justin

Exactly, Mary. Another new character (Claudette) to endure, in yet another storyline that has nothing to do with GH history or GH families.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Agree that it does seems contrived.

Celia
Celia

What you said, Mary.
All this has happened when? A decade ago? Maybe, the ‘mea culpa’ effect compelled Griffin to escape to the Seminary. Who came first? The doctor or the priest? Strand situation, Mary.
And, as you say, THEN WHAT??

Celia
Celia

Strange, not strand.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Griffen is ok and one of the better newbies…its just this bringing in more characters to move a story is a bit too much because they end up staying then other characters are introduced for them instead of utilizing the cast they have…the stories need more connection to regular cast members and some of their stories and better continuity instead of having some disappear for weeks like Brad and Lucas, Kristina and her male friend-its hard to stay interested in some of these characters when they aren’t shown for weeks who suddenly have a story then disappear for more weeks…same with Laura and Kevin-i dont think the writers even know what Laura’s mystery even is???

Celia
Celia

@jimn(leave it to beaver).
I love Griffin, too, Jimmy. But, I agree. Too many characters….too many stories to focus on….all over the map. Again, Jimmy; my head is a’spinnin’. I don’t want to see or spew green soup anymore. LOL.

Amen to ALL that, Mary SF. So dull and predictable. As Blanche once said to Rose on THE GOLDEN GIRLS after a story that was actually MORE compelling than the Nathan tale, “That is a big WHO CARES story.”

su0000

ahhhh ha!
Griff was doing the nasty with Claudette.
So, Claudette may very well be there for Griff not Nathan.

I wonder; was a Griff a priest then or after?
It’d be cooler if he was a priest at the time.

Someone else decided that Shay and I were also men, on these boards.

There are certain expressions that only a woman can relay in a certain way, and it takes another woman to grasp it.
Be nice.

He would have been too young to be both a priest or a doctor, su…….I think?
Training can take between ten years for a priest….longer for a doctor who specializes in one certain area.
It is just too incomprehensible for me. But, it’s a soap. I like the story….so, I go with the flow.
I have trepidations as Mary suggested. So, I do hope the ‘then what?’ becomes, ‘Ah, that’s what!.

su0000

I think it will be fun to see the Maxie sub as Nathan’s Maxie.
It is time for their break up, yes?

Celia
Celia

@su0000.
Lol, su. I hope you’re right. But, if you are familiar with Molly Burnett, I just do not see her personality mesh with Nathan’s.
Then again, Molly is an actress and as such, one hopes she adheres to the role.
The Maxie-Nathan breakup was imminent, as far as I am concerned. The tell-tale signs became apparent as soon as the name Claudette and her history with Nathan was mentioned.

Letemeatc8ke
Letemeatc8ke

Yeah, Molly can have the tendency to over act and come across as more childish instead of acting like an adult. It takes a special person to bring out Maxie’s qualities. Jen Lilly did an excellent job because she wasn’t trying to impersonate Kirsten Storms as Maxie – she was portraying the character of Maxie. I hope Molly can tap into that and make her mark on the character. I personally think she would make a good Hope on B&B.

I love Bree!! What I dont love is this show casting big name talent in throwaway roles. This mystery Claudette is just pointless filler! Mark my words……she will be a distant memory a year from now. Paging Claire Labine!!!!!

First, I think Ryan Paevy has improved so much as an actor. I always liked him…even when his acting was a bit stilted his gorgeous face/eyes conveyed emotion.
Second, I’m glad he’s finally getting a story
though are we ever going to find out who his father is???
Third, it’s ridiculous for Maxie to be so angry and distant. He tried and tried to tell her the truth but she kept telling him she didn’t want to hear it. He obviously has a conscience, he’s been troubled by this for a long time, he is still the same good guy and by her own admittance she’s had her own challenges with truth. Did she forget her flrtation and friendship with Johnny, a guy who kills for a living? By contrast Nathan’s act was a regrettable, drunken crime of passion. (Not sure if I could deal with that truth in real life but as far as soaps go it’s a comparatively low offense).
I’m looking forward to the story. Bree’s great; I’m hoping Mattdreamy Cohen steps up his game. I’ve seen him in other shows and he’s very good; he needs a little life injected into his current role. Not sure about the temporary Maxie…that unfortunately might lessen what could be a good love triangle (quadruple!) story….

Alan

This reveal — like all of Jean and Shelly’s writing — just left me with a feeling of “that’s it?”

It’s sad that after yesterday’s flashbacks the unseen Claudette became the most interesting character in this “story.”

(And while we’re on the subject of lackluster twists can we just get to the “big” reveal that Lucas was injected by Dr. Mays who is also probably the head of the black market organ ring that provided Jocelyn with her transplant?)

Celia
Celia

Love it, Alan. I do believe you said this before. Today, your words came to me as I scrutinized Dr. Mays (sp). He seemed so affable in defending Finn….but, I can see he has an agenda. He is cunningly trying to show reason to one and all.
I think you are right, Alan. Kudos.

Letemeatc8ke
Letemeatc8ke

Yup!

Brett

Another episode of newbie back story galore; Hayden and mom, this crap about Nathan’s past and even the attempted murder of Lucas (which I’m still not convinced won’t be finished) has been made all about Finn’s back story. Could this show get any more boring?

Kevin O.
Kevin O.

I like Griffin but I’m not into this storyline at all. Just get Griffin and Maxie together already, and dump Nathan who is sooooo boring. (And I am loving Hayden’s mother so far.)

Justin
Justin

Who cares? I feel like I barely know Nathan, he hasn’t been on the show that long. Maxie, and almost every female on this show, has zero credibility with being angry at Nathan because of all the mob sympathizing that they do. I like Griffin, but I just don’t care about him yet. This is your summer storyline GH? What a contrived mess…..and add yet another newbie into the mix and this is a disaster.

Melissa

So much about the Claudette story makes no sense and is jarring to watch. Nathan shot someone in a drunken rage. Really? Nathan who’s been the steadiest and most moral person on the show? We’ve seen his jealousy before but he’s never once been drunk or acted inappropriately. And how does Obrecht, who only recently came into his life, know the story? Nathan would confide in her but not Nina, Dante or Maxie? And why have the writers chosen to make Maxie a hypocrite? Given her history of lies and deception she should immediately be understanding and willing to forgive Nathan. Instead her logic is — you always knew I was a liar so I’ve been consistent, but you never were a liar therefore I can ever trust you again. What? Nathan should totally call her out on that crap. I love the character of Geiffin and I hope at the very least this story explains how and why he became a priest.

Celia
Celia

I see your point, Melissa. Many ‘things’ about Nathan’s past do not jive with me. Firstly, Nathan’s involvement with Claudette, who, by the by, was supposedly an ingenue, happened years ago. So, how old was he? Twelve? I love Bree, but already there are discrepancies in the time frame, as Claudette looks so much older than Nathan.
I am guessing Nathan was the ‘ingenue’ mesmerized by an older, more sophisticated, wily woman? Double LOL.
Also, I am assuming Griffin knows exactly who Nathan is, and is biding his time? Why? Is he a good guy who is willing to let sleeping dogs lie….or, is he lying in wait…then pounce at the opportune moment? For what reason? Is Griffin still in love with Claudette? He has the advantage here.
Poor Nathan! Because of his drunken stupor, at the time, he is in such a vulnerable position right now.
As far as Liesl is concerned, you’re right. She did just come into his life as his mother. However, it is very possible that she was abreast of everything happening in his life. Did she keep in touch with MadMaddie?
Yes, the ‘being truthful and honest’ scene between Maxie and Nathan was a bit much….off the wall, as it were. So lame. Very well put, Melissa. You made me chuckle about Maxie’s logic. I suppose these writers think their audience is moronic. LOL.

Melissa
Melissa

I’m so glad you liked the post and agree and I love your point about the timeframe for the Claudette / Nathan relationship.

Celia

@Melissa.
I’m glad you see my point, as well, Melissa. I always enjoy your posts.
Ain’t it grand when we agree? LOL.

Anne

I join the chorus and say this story is disappointing. There’s no suspense in what could happen. I love the actress coming to play Claudette but who cares what her arrival will mean. Nathan is belatedly indicted? If griffin hasn’t come forward by now chances are he won’t. Claudette could go after Nathan or griffin? So what? And yea when did Doctor-father griffin find time to have an affair? Between mass and brain surgery?

Celia
Celia

Right on, Anne! Perhaps Griffin’s reluctance in coming forward and making himself known means that he, himself, has something to hide?
I think all this went down before Griffin even entertained joining the priesthood. He may have been in Med School, at the time, though. Still, we are talking YEARS here.
These guys are just too young for all this to have happened long, long time ago, as Nathan said to Maxie. That’s what bothers me the most about this story. The time frame. Was it specified?

#ihatetypos

Celia
Celia

With all due respect, Lauren…I disagree. When Mrs Berlin walked in on Liz’s and Hayden’s ‘scuffle’, the scene was too coincidentally palpable. Almost comical. There was a definite intent by the writers for having both women call out “Mother”, albeit Liz was mockingly parroting Hayden.
That is the reason I suggested they were sisters. From what I have gathered, Liz has never known her mother? Is that true? Wouldn’t that be a twisted, cruel irony of fate, if true? So, I do not think my assumption is too far-fetched.
I love both Rebeccas. Yeah, Liz makes my blood boil sometimes. So, if she were not the true thespian she is, she could not draw out any feelings from the viewer.
The same may be said for Hayden.
No, I do not want either to leave. And, now that ‘Mother’ flew in like a whirlwind…..feathers will definitely be stirred and plucked.

The outcome of this storyline is what most people predicted. Another new character, Claudette, will be on-canvas, and we’ll probably never see her and lose even more interest in this storyline. Storylines are dropped on a regular basis; characters are not seen and forgotten about. Also, I thought Maxie was being hypocrite, chastising Nathan for keeping a secret and lying to her, when that is how Maxie rolls most of the time.

Mister Media
Mister Media

I’m loyal to GH and am always willing to give a story line a chance. I just wish I had more faith in the current writing team. To begin with, Maxie’s reaction to the news didn’t ring true for me. Too many stories have a predictable payoff but no lasting impact or consequences. Also, many stories meander and mutate as if there is no long term vision and, in some cases, no completion at all. I am excited to see Bree Williamson on my screen again however.

Celia
Celia

Meander and mutate….Words that would not come to me, Mister Media. Perfect fit!!!!! I tried expressing the same refrain. But, you say it best!!!! How true. A beginning…but, no middle or end. Everything is left in limbo. The stories never ripen. Why? Just as you say….” …no vision…”.

Now let me get this straight. The Nathan who first showed up in Port Charles, the one who could make Dudley Do-Right blush , and hunted down Cyrus Clay for the unforgivable sin of putting Nina in a coma (which we now see would have been FULLY justified had he ACTUALLY done it) is the same Nathan who shot a man in a drunken rage and never owned up to it and continued on as an officer of the law in at least two different precincts? Right. And MORGAN is the one in a mental hospital?

Rose

Snooze! The only thing saving this story is how much I always enjoy KS as Maxie. RP as Nathan is doing the best he can with this story, but I just don’t care about his stupid past. Maybe if Griffin had been hitting on Maxie more than this would be more interesting but it is falling so flat for me.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Griffin backed off when he realized Maxie had a boyfriend. If I remember correctly that was before he found out about and recognized Nathan. But he said he didnt want to get close to a woman he couldn’t have…a lesson learned when he was shot??? Thus, he’s been trying to not hit on Maxie even though he seems attracted to her.

Celia
Celia

Let’s not forget Griffin is a Roman Catholic priest. Lol, Rose….what we may want to happen between Maxie and him is taboo. Then again, Griffin is first and foremost a man.
He must have incredible willpower, if he is attracted to Maxie. Plus, imagine the torture he will go through when Claudette shows up. Chances are he is still hung up on her. I think that’s why he became a priest…to make amends for whatever he’s hiding.
Are his regular visits to the hospital’s chapel meant to ask God for forgiveness for his unholy thoughts and the strength to resist temptation? Is that feasible?

This is exactly why this soap never really moves up in the ratings and stays up. It tells such stupid stories. So Bree will arrive as his ex-lover and a forced love triangle will ensue with no real need for it being forced. Nor does ANYTHING EXCUSE THE USE OF A GUN ESPECIALLY BY A COP!

Sorry, it was attempted murder that Nathan essentially covered up. Its not a story thats new because we constantly see Sonny, Jason and the Corinthos spawn pull out their guns and use them instead of brains! I don’t get why the writer on this show still has a job when he cant tell compelling story without it involving a gun.

Does he not read the paper? Police violence? Gun control? etc. is not something that papers in this upstate New York hamlet ever write about and it would be amazing if the show actually had Molly lead a “GUN CONTROL” story and eventually see the likes of Sonny, Jason, Julian, Ava etc give up their weapons for stories that we can all relate to.

Just sick and EFFIN tired of the only story GH can tell is with an old character, GUN McPISTOL-LOADED.

GET ORIGINAL

Soaphound
Soaphound

I find myself getting really confused also, Paul. With so much violence and so many bad deeds, where are the nice people and good deeds to balance things out? Even our supposed “heroes”, like Dante, Lulu, Nathan, Michael, Sabrina….they’ve all done underhanded things lately. And don’t even start on how Nikolas has been trashed. Carly & Sonny are beginning to look angelic in comparison. I’m starting to feel depressed when each show ends.

Letemeatc8ke
Letemeatc8ke

I’d like to ask a question – without inciting a riot. Why are some fans so stuck on core characters and so objectionable to new characters getting established on a soap? In your real life are you only limited to your nucleus family members? Don’t you have friends. People you know from work? Friends of relatives that you get introduced to and you hit it off with them and they become a part of your life. I just don’t get why new characters get so much hate-o-rade. I do understand when core characters are put on the back burner for a seemingly long time, but I think it’s just to give the new characters roots and fill in their background. Some writers are good at coming back around to core characters and balancing the mix. Other writers, well not so much. I guess I just like new faces on the scene sometimes. And GH is hiring the world so….

Celia
Celia

Oh, I’m with you, Letemeatc8ke. I welcome new characters, young, old and in-between. Your point is well-taken. Plus, new characters are necessary tools/foils to mold a story and another character; core or not.
However, I think, at least for me, that said characters are continuously thrown in, sometimes all at once, and at a fast pace. Most of us would love to see a storyline, once in a while, reach a climax and an end before being inundated by new faces and storylines.

Tamara Braun Says Farewell To GH: “Thank You To All You Wonderful People for Your Love and Support”

Today marks the day for the final appearance of General Hospital’s Tamara Braun in the role of Dr. Kim Nero, according to a post on her Instagram account from the actress herself.

Braun posted: “Want to see Kim Nero one last time? Tune in today to say goodbye. Thank you to all you wonderful people for your love and support. #GH #goodbye #love #support #fans #gratitude #smile #bekind”

Tamara’s latest GH alter-ego (she had previously played Carly Corinthos) of Kim Nero, found herself pining after Franco (Roger Howarth) who now has her beloved Drew Cain’s memories transplanted into his brain, thanks to the horrifying procedure done by the late Shiloh and Dr. Cabot.  Kim has also been grieving for months the loss of her son, Oscar.

Watch to see how Kim exits Port Charles on the ABC daytime drama series.
