‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Maxie Warms Up to Peter – Can This Damaged Duo Find Love?

General Hospital spoilers hint Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and Peter August (Wes Ramsey) have a date with destiny, but what’s ahead for them? Both have battle scars from recent events and both are victims of trauma. As the help each other recover, it seems to be setting the stage for romance. Here’s what the GH spoilers say comes next for Maxie and Peter.

General Hospital Spoilers – Maxie Jones Heart Heals on GH

Poor Maxie Jones. She tested her heart many times. General Hospital spoilers history reminds that more than 20 years ago, Maxie got BJ Jones’ heart. Since then, she put it through the wringer. Her romantic life had some serious ups and downs. She enabled Lucky Spencer’s (Jonathan Jackson) drug addiction to keep him in her bed.

Then in recent years, she had that disastrous affair with the awful Levi Dunkleman (Zachary Garred). The only upside of letting that con man into her life is that it also opened the door to her true love Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). They had a rocky road to romance but achieved true love and made a beautiful baby. Then he died and broke Maxie Jones’ heart.

Peter August is a Broken Man

General Hospital spoilers show a fractured past from birth for Peter August. His mom Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) gave him up for adoption. That would be okay but for the interference of Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) who stole him and gave him to his biological father Cesar Faison (Anders Hove). Valentin regretted this, but it was too late.

Peter August wants to be decent but was weighed down by Faison’s evil influence. He saved Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) but also hurt him. Then Peter’s quest for vengeance against his dad led him to Port Charles. Unfortunately, he played a role in his brother Nathan’s death and then was tortured by Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati). Like Maxie Jones, he is fractured.

Maxie Jones & Peter August Help Each Other Heal on GH

Given recent General Hospital spoilers, Peter and Maxie won’t be a couple that will fall into each other’s arms (or bed) overnight. They seem to be on a path to romance, but it looks like a slow burn. That’s the only way to go for these two. her sole comfort is her son, baby James. Since he’s never known family, he is heavily invested in the baby’s happiness.

Peter August is broken and fragile – and it draws her closer. The recent elevator crisis when Peter freaked out allowed her step up in a role of strength. She saw him through that crisis. In fact, she’s taking the lead. Others are tip-toeing around Maxie but with Peter, she is in a strong role as she helps him heal the wounds of his past. This distracts her from her grief and is helping her recover.

Will Maxie and Peter Find Love?

Just as Maxie and Nathan had a long slow road to romance, it should be the same with Peter August and Maxie Jones. If Peter was pursuing Maxie romantically, it would turn off viewers (and everyone in Port Charles). But it could be that she will realize she has feelings for Nathan’s brother and turn up the heat. Peter wants to be a good guy – and so he wouldn’t make the first move.

But there is definitely chemistry there – Soap Central sees it too. Maxie couldn’t help but take a peek when Peter pulled off his shirt during his elevator meltdown. She noticed (and so did fans) that it was a pretty nice view… General Hospital spoilers tease we should expect this to be a slow process where both eventually realize they’re falling for the other, deny what’s happening, but ultimately can’t fight their feelings.
