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.

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

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!!!!!

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!

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.

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!

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
Guest

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 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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
