Congrats to Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) who was selected as the performer of the week. Learn more here--->>
Ask any General Hospital fan who their least favorite character
is and strong chances are the response will be Peter August. Therefore, it is always a highlight when a
character gets to confront Peter. In
this past week’s shows, Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) was one of those
people. Peter was being held at the
police station and Maxie wanted to confront him; to prove to herself she is no
longer afraid of him. Kirsten Storms
showed Maxie’s feisty side and her overprotective side; fans could feel the
anger and hatred Maxie feels toward Peter through Storms’ powerful
performance. Maxie is desperate to have
Louise back in her arms and she won’t be able to until she knows her baby will
be safe from Peter. Kirsten Storms
brilliantly showcased the balance of Maxie telling Peter off and that he doesn’t
have a hold on her anymore while still highlighting the fear Maxie has that
Peter will get to their baby.
No one tells a mob boss what to do…well except maybe Maxie Jones. After Maxie confronts Peter at the police station, Maxie sees Sonny and wants to know when Sonny will “take care of” Peter. Yet again, fans can sense the desperation and the lengths Maxie is willing to go to in order to be with her child through Storms’ strong performance.
Fans also love when they get to see Maxie’s lighter, humorous side. In an effort to put Britt’s mind at ease, Maxie suggests that Britt go to Maxie’s apartment with her to get “old school wasted” and when they bump into Nina, she tells Nina that she was trying to bully Britt into getting “wine hammered”. Kirsten Storms’ line delivery in these lighter scenes was spot on and had fans wishing they got to see Maxie and Britt share a glass of wine (or several) so that they could see more of Maxie’s lighter, funnier side.
Nina and Sonny talk in the chapel of the hospital; Nina lets Sonny know that Peter threatened to tell Carly about their relationship in Nixon Falls. Nina also tells Sonny that she doesn’t regret having the relationship that they had because it was the purest form of love she’s had. Willow overhears the conversation and was about to tell Michael and Carly before getting interrupted. Nina realizes Willow overheard her conversation with Sonny and asks her if she’s going to tell Sonny’s family, but warns it would be in everyone’s best interest to keep it secret. Willow thinks Nina is only looking out for herself, but she does seem to think Nina has a point that the secret will hurt Sonny’s loved ones.
Sonny confronts Peter at the police station and threatens him. Peter tells Sonny that he has proof (a picture of him kissing Nina in Nixon Falls) and that he made arrangements for it to be leaked in case Sonny went after him. Out of precaution, Sonny approaches Ms. Wu and asks if she’d be able to handle Peter on his behalf. She agrees, but only if he promises to not interfere with Brad’s parole hearing and even takes it a step further; she wants Sonny to help Brad get parole. Sonny agrees and Ms. Wu arranges for Brad to poison Peter in his jail cell.
Carly tries to comfort Gladys as they await news on baby Liam. Lucy tries to do the same with Sasha as well as TJ with Brando.

Nick lets Ashland know he still doesn’t trust him and warns him to not hurt Victoria. Victoria overhears them talking and she asks Nick why he continues to blame other people for his own issues.
