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.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!

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.

Agree.

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 »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
