In a post on her Instagram account on Friday night, General Hospital fan favorite Kirsten Storms (Maxies Jones) posted a photo of herself about to get her cut-off.  But what is even more important is that Storms confirmed she is already back taping brand new episodes for the summer on the set of the ABC daytime drama series.

Storms post stated: “Maxie’s short hair returns to #GH … and so do I.”

The return of Kirsten is very key to the summer storyline involving; Nathan (Ryan Paevey), Claudette (Bree Williamson), and Griffin (Matt Cohen).  In Storms absense former Days of our Lives cast member, Molly Burnett (Ex-Melanie Jonas) had temporarily replaced her.

Look for Burnett to debut next week on GH, with Storms returning to her role on-air in August.

So, excited to hear from Kirsten and that she is back taping at GH?  What do you think about Kirsten going back to Maxie with shorter-do? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Maxie is my favorite character on GH, and a big part of the reason is the layers Storms brings to her. I’ll miss her during her absence, but I am very happy she is feeling better and taping again.

Ditto, Lucky. I love her bubbly-self. She is the type of character whose personality charms and engages the viewer. I would think this is how Kirstin is in reality.

Hope Burnett’s stay is a short one! There is only one Maxie Jones and it’s Kirsten!! Hope she’s feeling better

What about Robin Richards? I heard fans say she the one and only Maxie Jones.

Never heard from those fans. Not that memorable to me.

Hey, Ces.
I like Molly, but yes, I do want Kirsten back.
I think Molly slid into the Maxie role somewhat awkwardly. Too bad Molly won’t be here long enough to make the role her own.
I must admit, it felt kind of weird seeing Molly as Kirsten. I was one of “Melanie’s” avid fans. But, the facial expressions, the gesture, the dress even, just were not Kirsten. Two completely different personalities, and it showed.
I liked her purse, though. LOL. I have the same RLL bag ( larger version), with the cork motif at the top.

The less of Molly Burnett the better. I can’t wait til Kirsten fills my screen again. I love her so much. The other one? I pass. (See I can be kind when prompted. LoL)

How do we know that Molly will do a crappy job as Maxie. Tuesday’s show is Molly’s first day as Maxie right.

Well, she was crappy on Days and likes to chew scenery so probably will be an annoyance on GH too.

I’m very interested in seeing Molly Burnette take on the role. While I’m not a fan of her character on days she doesn’t seem I’ll fit for the part. I loved Jen Liley as Maxie. I almost wanted her to stay. Glad Kristen is doing better and back at home in her role.

Always thought Jen got a bum rap in the role. But I’m glad this absence will be brief

I know, right? I do like the actress (despite her annoying habit of utilizing vocal fry when she speaks) but I am puzzled by the constant assurance that she will be back when she has yet to leave the screen. We get it, we get it. KS will be back even though she has not quite left yet. I am not sure why her extremely short absence has to be covered so much or even why they are bothering with a recast during this short period of time. Maxie easily could have gone off to Seattle to be with baby… Read more »

Benefit of doubt — maybe they didn’t know how long she would need to be gone? But overall agree, much ado about nothing.

Agree with you, Harry! Lazy planning by TPTB–ditto for Nikolas “story line” which is so very dull–and nonsensical.

I am hoping with KS taping again already with no sighting of Molly Burnett yet means Molly will only be on for two weeks at the most. A month will be too long. I look forward to seeing KS new shorter do. I liked her hair long, but short and sassy works so well for her.

Maxie is always cute … even when she’s frustrating.

It’s really sad that people are putting down Molly &she didn’t evergreen have her first airdate. She’s only on for the month of July & filing in for Kirsten who needed the medical leave.
It just shows how petty those who insult her really are.

Harry
Guest

It’s mean, Tammy. I agree. Folks act like these temporary actors are strike breakers or something.

Tammy
Guest
Tammy

Exactly.
We’re just lucky to have an established actress play Maxie for what was only a month since she’ll be back soon.
Someone on FB wanted Burnett to dye her hair or wear a wig.
Why can’t people stop being so nitpicking.
We can get over reanimation but not a temp actor change.
Yikes!

I loved Molly on Days. But, she is so different from Kirsten….I think this is why fans are somewhat taken aback. Will she live up to the task?
I believe that as an actress, Molly should be able to prove her mettle regardless of the role.

Wasn’t too impressed with Molly today, but it’s hard to replace another actor. I just hope all this drama with Claudette does not happen till Kirsten is back on! She is the only one that can play this part that will be coming up! Drag this out a little bit, all of us won’t mind

Hi, Ces. Thanks for replying. I don’t see your comment on this board, but I did get it in my inbox. Lol. Glad you liked my bag comment. You mention Nick Stabile….oh, yeah, Ces!! My very first comment regarding him was that I had hoped he would take over the role of Nik Cassadine permanently. I was never under the influence of Tyler’s ‘charms’. Never took seed with me. I say this at the risk of getting backlash, as Tyler is a fan fave. It’s a matter of taste. In his case, not palatable for me. So, it’s nice to… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Courtesy/ABC

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
