No one says that Maxie had everything in life handed to her on General Hospital. She had to deal with first an absentee dad, as Frisco (Jack Wagner) went gallivanting around the globe, saving the world, and then an absentee mom, as Felicia (Kristen Wagner) disappeared for literally years at a time.

She almost died before getting a heart transplant, and then had to live with the knowledge that her cousin, BJ, was the donor. She lost her sister, Georgie, to a serial killer, and her daughter, Georgie, to Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). Husband Nathan died before the birth of their son, James.

The way Maxie handled it was unprofessional, according to a smaller 37% of you, but she did have a point. Nina went back on her promise. That’s unacceptable.
