Ever since Nathan’s death, Maxie has been leaning on Peter on GENERAL HOSPITAL, and now it’s beginning to seem as though there’s the potential for romance! Sure, when Maxie first learned that Peter was really Henrik Faison, it was a bit of a shock, but over time she’s softened and found herself leaning on him in times of crisis. But while she’s been adamant about keeping Peter squarely in the friend zone, could she just be denying her own feelings? “I think there’s something there,” Kirsten Storms admitted to Soaps In Depth of her character’s emotions. “I don’t know what’s in the future for them, but they’re making so much of how Peter feels about her. And I’ve spent a lot of the time Maxie’s not with Peter talking about him… so that has to mean something!”
While it might seem a little inappropriate that Maxie would find happiness with the brother of her late husband, that sibling connection might actually work in his favor. “Before Maxie knew they were related, she told Nina there was something about him that reminded her of Nathan,” Storms reminded. “I think she sees similarities in them… and I think that’s an appealing thing for her.”
Despite the trauma of Nathan's death being what brought them together, there's no denying that Maxie relied heavily on Peter in the aftermath which created an extremely deep connection between the two. But might she feel as though she's betraying Nathan's memory by becoming romantically involved with his brother?
