On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman sat down with two of General Hospital’s most popular stars, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) for this video interview at the ABC Summer Press Tour event (premiering the fall season) for the Television Critics Association (TCA) just a few days ago.

During the conversation, Kirsten and Patrick discussed the topic that is one of the most forefront on GH fans minds … what is going to happen when Maxie has her baby and all the deceit surrounding it? And, what is going to happen when Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) has her baby, that is supposedly Patrick’s?  Here now are some excerpts from what the stars had to say about all the drama, followed by the video!

KIRSTEN:  “I think in my storyline, I don’t think there is one resolution that everybody is going to be happy with. The fans are pretty divided on what they want the outcome to be.  I think no matter what … things are not going to go well for Maxie.  She has lied to just about everybody in her life, and in the situation. Obviously, things are going to have to start coming out because a few people know the truth, and I don’t think they are going to be able to keep that in for very long.  But that is kind of what we do this for … the big explosion of the storyline, and just to see the fallout of everything. I am ready for it to happen though.”

JASON:  “I am ready for the next part of this story, for sure. I honestly don’t know how this all plays out. We are back to work not this week, but the week after, and so I think it will start to shift going into the next couple of weeks.  So, I am kind of excited to read how this all plays out. There are a lot of questions that Patrick has right now about the situation that he is in. There was a scare on the health of the baby, and so I think he is really trying to zero in on that, and to make sure that this child is born healthy. I am sure once we find out that is the case, or maybe even before, there will be some fallout. Whether everybody’s happy about it, I don’t know, but I am probably sure most people in my situation would probably be happy that the baby is not his. I personally, hope it’s mine… I just want another kid!  It would be fun, why not? (Laughs)”

Now watch the video interview below, and also find out what Kirsten and Jason had to say, when Michael asked what if the GH powers-that-be where to ever think of pairing Maxie and Patrick together romantically?  Then, let us know how you hope the baby dramas unfolds!

Maxie and Patrick would have been fun! It would have added to the drama if/when Robin comes back.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

They shouldve been paired together…

No way! Maxie and Patrick would be a shipwreck and an awful couple..

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I keep thinking Maxi(with Spinnelis baby) and Britt(with Dante and Lulus baby) will go into labor the same day and someone, maybe Brad will switch them. That way when Maxi decides to keep the baby and insists its hers…but dna test will now show its Dantes and Lulus because of the switch and Britt will pass off Maxis/Spinnelis baby as Patricks.

Sounds logical, but I’m thinking there has to be another twist we don’t see coming here…exactly from where and whom Britt’s spawn originated is still anybody’s guess!!! Particularly with Dr. Strange O.’s fine hand in this mix!!!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Theres gotta be some kinda twist…i hope…it would make the story more interesting and exciting.

I have thought about the switch too and thought that would happen. However Dr O is involved and it’s very possible that Maxie’s baby is really not Spinelli’s and Brit’s baby is not who we think it is. There wil probably be a switch or a stealing of a baby to murk things up even more. I would love to see Maxie’s baby be Spinelli’s and wish that they could be a couple too! As for Patrick and Maxie… hmmm… no!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Patrick and Maxi wouldve made the story more interesting had they been paired instead of bringing on Sabrina. In wouldve been more suspenseful if Robin returned to find Patrick about to marry her good friend Maxi instead of Sabrina who she does not know. It wouldve made better drama.

Patrick

that’s pretty good… JimH.

even with Maxie and Britt knowing she “lost” the baby… miscarried…

if she admits it’s hers…. the baby switch… and the dna results… will prove her wrong..

Maxie will come off as batty…. even if she does want the baby as her own.

this will give Britt more time… to?

Hey jimh… I wouldn’t say good friend… Maxie and Robin are family. They are a very unusual family situation but I believe we can say they are cousins and they were raised like sisters by Mac for many years. Family and holiday get togethers are with Robin and Maxie. I just got a chance to see the interview and I agree with Kirsten… they are related and it would be incestuous. Your ideas are great though and give us things to think about!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Thanks for the reply Heidi…are Maxi and Patrick related you say(is that why you said incestuous)…cause i didnt think they were related.

heidi
heidi

You are right… Jim! Patrick and Maxie are only related by marriage. Incestuous was the wrong word to use. It just would seem inappropriate to me and I Iike that they are family and are there for love and support… and they both are going to need a lot of that when these baby story lines break!

I want Spinelli to have his baby girl, with Maxie..
Spinelli would be a great father and he and Maxie and baby would be awesome..

I agree with you! I like Spinelli & Maxie together not so much with Ellie…

Thanks Michael for a great interview!!! Did you ask Kirsten if she is the actress on GH rumored to be engaged and pregnant? She is looking like she might be?

I won’t have liked Maxie & Patrick paired together…. I like Maxie with Spinelli…

I hope the baby Maxie is carrying is Spinelli’s and they get together. They are so good together because they work off each other. It is just a treat to watch them. Spinelli will be hurt because Maxie has withheld the fact that he is the father which causes them problems but they work it out. I hate to disappoint Patrick but I hope the baby Brit is carrying is LuLu and Dante’s. Maybe Brit will finally decide she doesn’t want to mess her relationship with Nicholas up so she comes up with a story that she knew about Maxie and her baby and decided to use Dante and Lulu’s eggs for herself and now feels they should have the baby.

I don’t know about Maxie and Patrick. But Kristen and Jason seem like two people you would be happy to be friends with..Maxie use to be a ditz,so pairing her with a brain surgeon I don’t know. She loved Robin and she does love Emma so I guess it could work.
They have had a lot worse couples on this show Sonny and anyone comes to mind. .We know the baby isn’t Patrick’s s its moot. Maxie’s is her own so I guess we have to wait and see what tiic of the show do. With them .It could be anything.

Speaking of paternity themes, does anyone else question whether Silas is Kiki’s real father??? There just seems to be something oddly suspicious about that whole scenario…Ava was so hell-bent and determined to hide the “truth” about her daughter and yet Julian was completely blase’ about revealing it. If DNA proves a match, there could still be the possibility that “Stephen Clay” is the daddy, and if not, dare I proffer the notion that it could also be Julian???? That whole relationship between Ava and her “brother” is strange…they simply don’t appear familial in the sibling sort-of-way, and also she has recently been displaying some off-putting vibes that scream “mental issues.” ( Like that chick just ain’t right….) Are these two both real “Jeromes,” or actually even related???? Just asking…..

I can not wait for maxie to give birth. I want to see maxie be a mother to her daughter

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
