General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) taking off to Texas to visit Felicia (Kristina Wagner) as Anna (Finola Hughes) and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) continue to look for her baby who is right in front of their faces in Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) house. Did Maxie do the right thing when she gave her baby away? You tell us!
General Hospital Spoilers: Did Maxie Jones Make A Major Mistake?
Maxie’s first big mistake was deciding Peter August (Wes Ramsey) was her new best friend when she was pregnant with James and newly widowed. Just because a man is nice to you when your husband just died doesn’t mean he has to be your bestie. The next big mistake Maxie made was forgiving Peter when she learned he lied to her about who he was and was really Faison’s son and responsible for her beloved Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) death.
The big mistake GH made was writing another pregnancy for Maxie with a character the entirety of the soap’s fandom hates with the fire of a thousand suns. But the pregnancy wore on and Maxie nearly married Peter, but learned he was a vile and crazed villain just before saying ‘I Do.’
Then came what some might say is an even bigger mistake. She planned to fake her baby’s death to keep her from Peter without just using the fact that her father heads the WSB and could have hidden her anywhere. Nope. Maxie had to do this all on her own. Of course, her plans went awry and now everyone just thinks Bailey Louise has been kidnapped and is not the baby Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) claims she gave birth to.
But Maxie Had To Hide Her Baby, It Was The Only Way
Perhaps not even Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner) or Anna Devane could have protected her from the great Peter August — the villain so clever that he ended up down a flight of stairs and in a freezer in the GH basement. While we can’t be sure he is still in the freezer as dead is never really dead on a soap, he did manage to poison Chase (Josh Swickard), so he must be more dangerous than anyone Maxie ever met. She did what she had to do for Louise and who could blame her? Peter August should never be allowed near babies or any young children.
But did Maxie really need to give her baby to Brook Lynn, leading to a certain broken heart for Valentin and all the Quartermaines? Let us know in the General Hospital poll below.
