General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Courtesy/ABC

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

Sadly, what I came away with from these scenes is that Wes Ramsey’s acting is not on par with the majority of GH’s cast. Sometimes, it can be overlooked, but not with these major scenes. Kirsten did indeed rock it though!

I respectfully disagree! Wes Ramsey is a phenomenal actor. Peter is just not a likable character nor is he a character that you can love to hate. It has nothing to do with Ramsey, and everything to do with how he has been written. Don’t get me wrong, these writers are great. I just don’t think they know what to do with Wes or Peter.

The barometer is probably somewhere in the middle when it comes to Ramsey. The character does not fit on the canvas long term. The actor, regardless of skill level, wouldn’t merit a second (or third) character like Easton and Howarth.

I don’t we’ve seen the last of him, as GH is traditionally very quick to remove actors from the credits once contracts are concluded. Ramsey still appeared in the contact portion of the credits on Friday.

I agree, Phil, he is a good actor, he got away with murder(s) without being stopped or being detected. Even Maxie was going to the altar for her love of him. He will be back, more sinister and evil than ever. Like Cyrus, Henrik will always be a threat – even in the background. I’m wondering why Finn didn’t run out to try to find the antidote! I sure would have! As a researcher, he could use even a small amount (if the vial was broken) to analyze and develop an antidote for his son.

I agree with you 100%. Maxie knocked him out of the ball park with her acting. I was glad to see her give him what he deserved.

I totally agree, Susan. Kristen was phenomenal in these scenes.

While I do agree with you, the reasons stem from the writing. Peter has always been an ill-defined character. He was brought on as a nobody, but wildly propped by the writers and producers. It became apparent he had a shady side, but was never really written or acted like a moustache twirling villain. He was more good guyvstrugglin bags instead his darker impulses from being raised by Faison. Then, they started writing him more villainous. It was still always written that there would be a redemption for him. At this time, there was even talk of him being Anna… Read more »

Kirsten has her Emmy reel with the work she has done with the birth of Louise in the woods, her amazing scene where she tells off and tricks Peter, and for a final touch the brief scene where Maxie sees Louise through her hospital room window in Brooklynn’s arms… just amazing Emmy-worthy work!

I hope Kirsten recovers quickly and continues to play the wonderful Maxie Jones for us, continuing to deliver amazing performances!!!

Amen To This, richard. She’s long overdue for Emmy recognition and this story should do it for her. I can’t imagine a more expert, moving performance. Fantastic work!

She sure has come a very long way since playing Belle on DAYS. So glad she came to GH all those years ago. she was awesome this week!!!

I agree. Not a fan of her version of Belle. Martha Madison is Belle to me. Storms however brought it this week and definitely reminded me of the actress she is. I had actually started to get bored and annoyed with Maxie. Until now!

Finally something for her to really sink her teeth into. She tore it apart and demonstrated what fine acting chops she has. Her scenes were so powerful!

Iam dying to find out what Finn and Liz have done with Peter’s body. Are those two getting a little close?

Satan
Guest

Right now Liz needs to remind Finn about the scientific theory he used to develop his “cure” for Chase that didn’t work. His “trojan horse” theory was a brilliant hypothesis, but there’s a very good reason why it didn’t work. If he really looked at Chase’s blood work again, really closely, he might be able to figure out why… or maybe Liz will. Obviously, they were going to come back to the fact that Cyrus the Virus fixed that DNA test, and that Finn was never Chase’s daddy. They’re just getting to that reality in a much more dramatic way… Read more »

Oh Violet, I’ve also been wondering what the heck happened to that body. Maybe no one is assigned to cleaning the stairwells?

Amazing job!! Kirsten always delivers her best, in my opinion—-one of my favorites. —-her last scene with Ramsey blew me away. I truly detest Peter—-I was not familiar with Ramsey before GH, therefore I can only base my opinion on what I see—do not like what I see!! I guess he’s a good actor; nonetheless, there’s something about him that colors my judgment negatively. I simply do not like him. I doubt it’s because he’s a fiend—-if that were the case, I’d be repulsed by Cyrus. Yet, as bizarre as this sounds, I like the character—–As evil as Cyrus may… Read more »

Celia, my dear, as always you’ve nailed it. Michael is SUCH a great guy, already in double digits with ex-lovers and broken relationships. And Willow too! Cheating on the sweetest, best looking guy in town for a serial hypocrite! Shame on her. As for Cyrus, I love when a journeyman actor like Jeff Kober gets the part of a lifetime after decades in smaller roles. He’s having a ball in this part and I enjoy watching him spin his evil webs. I think Laura will retain a soft spot for him, despite his evil deeds. Heck, even self-righteous Jax has… Read more »

Right?? Michael is supposedly such a nice guy—-backstabbing Chase this way is beneath such a scrupulous guy. Sure. The best outcome, after all this drama and trauma, would be a marriage between Willow and heartthrob-Chase……And, wait for it, Soaphound—-Chase survives!! Then what? Willow realizes that her feelings for Chase are not dead—her renewed desire for him overwhelms her—Voila’ —bye, bye, Michael. And, Weeping Willow is a little hoarder—of men, that is…. methinks she wants both of them. Hmmmm. —the thought just came to me. LOL I wish TPTB could devise an impossible plan and allow Cyrus to stay, as a… Read more »

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Photo: Podcast One

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

What did you think about how Steve and Bradford addressed their disagreement on the vaccine mandate within the podcast? Will you be seeing Steve and Bradford live if they come to your town in 2022? Comment below.
