On General Hospital (GH), Nathan is trying to juggle his marriage to Maxie, his career as a cop… and his side-gig as Man Landers. And all the complications that brings with it.
Nathan never even wanted to be Man Landers. But Amy (Risa Dorken) guilted him into it, first with stories of how Maxie (Kirsten Storms) was mean to her in high school, and now with pleas not to blow open their secret and risk Amy losing her book contract.
She needs the money — not for herself. Nothing that crass, of course. She needs it for her brother, Chet (Chris Van Etten). Who is an opioid addict. And a military vet. And disabled.
What kind of meanie would say no to all that?
And what meanies would be encouraging Nathan to do just that? Over 8,000 viewers got real about the Maxie versus Amy time split.
Yes, yes, yes. Amy’s story is very sad. Consider your (virtual) check in the mail. But the world is full of sad stories, and every minute Nathan (Ryan Paevey) spends listening to her is a minute he isn’t spending listening to his wife. And Maxie talks a lot. She needs a lot of attention.
Pay attention to your wife, Nathan, lecture 81% of you! Or risk losing it all!
Turnabout Is Fair Play
Hey, Maxie, taunt a converse 18%. Remember how you abandoned Nathan for MONTHS while you chased your dream job? He was a good, loyal, and patient husband all that time. Now it’s your turn to act the same.
Nathan is a sweet, caring guy. It’s why you fell in love with him. And sweet, caring guys are going to get involved in the lives of people who need them. Like he did with you. Trust Nathan. And let him be the man he — and you — need him to be.
