General Hospital Spoilers: Kirsten Storms' Leave Changes GH – Nathan Get a New Lover While Maxie's Gone

General Hospital (GH) spoilers have revealed that Kirsten Storms is on an indefinite leave from the ABC show with no scheduled return date. Her character, Maxie Jones, just married the love of her life, and solid partner, Nathan West (Ryan Paevey); so what does this mean for their marriage and relationship in general? Ryan is currently on break from General Hospital while filming a movie but will return once that agreed upon leave is concluded.

No one knew when Detective Nathan West literally crossed paths with Maxie Jones, as he became her boyfriend as she was leaving on her “Eat. Pray. Love.” that anything would develop from this chance meeting; but the chemistry was there for sure.

General Hospital fans loved that their friendship developed slowly and they were able to have some romantic times before they finally made it down the aisle after some serious bumps in the road; including exes, Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Claudette Beaulieu (Bree Williamson).

When Nathan first arrived in Port Charles, Maxie and he were exciting to watch, but it seemed once they became a couple, they became mundane, only showing up on screen long enough for viewers to remember who they were.

Now that Maxie is off-screen, sources suggest Nathan is not going to remain faithful to her and keep his vows; and who could truthfully blame him? Although General Hospital spoilers haven’t been revealed yet as to who and how Nathan will end up in the arms of another, there are several possibilities.

General Hospital’s PCPD Nathan could easily be on an undercover assignment, and actually fall for his mark or he could end up with one of the many females in “distress” already on the show. If he were to end up with a woman already on the show, who do you think it could be?

Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) has just begun her romance with Dillon Quartermaine (Robert Palmer Watkins), but she still can’t seem to get over the guilt of her ex’s death, and now the fact that one of her relatives was the one responsible for planting the bomb.

General Hospital’s nurse Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst), and Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) have been off and on for a while now too. They are about to embark on a journey to discover what happened to Jake while he was living with Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers); what better time for her to lean on a detective to help her through all of this? Be sure to tune into ABC’s General Hospital (GH) to catch up on all the exciting things happening right now. Check CDL General Hospital spoilers often for updates and news!

    What’s the point? His character is still not developed enough for me to care about him. He’s still rather one-note.

  • Steffennie Smith

    A Maxie recast is more likely.

  • Kevin Pham

    so maxie the characters marries NATHAN and then MAXIE just leaves ???????????????? why not make her leave to pursue a passion or a new presumed job opening instead of damaging the character and turning her into the next Felicia Jones who just kept leaving her children and Mac… ???????????????????? sigh….????

  • Theresa

    Why just do a temporary recast like they do with everyone else on the show till she is ready to come back.

  • Carolyn Henson

    There are lots of things for Nathan to do that doesn’t include Maxie or a new love life ,he is a policeman lots of stories there.

  • PassionQueen77

    A Maxie recast is ok with me.

  • Ali Wichrowski

    Well….. There’s one storyline they could tell, of one of many of those dropped storylines… How about Who is Nathan’s daddy??? That has been long overdue, and need to be finished!!!

  • Mr_U

    How about Nathan is shot and killed in the line of duty. That guy can’t act. The only reason he’s on the show is he looks good with his shirt off…

    • Sue Smith

      and that is enough for daytime! ha

  • ceecee

    He isn’t on very often anyway. Have him join Maxie wherever Spinelli lives to bond with Georgie. She doesn’t have a job, he can take an assignment. When Kirsten returns or they get a recast they can come back.

  • pypsqweek

    If they recast then I hope the recast jist stays. Im sick of the actress leaving.

  • MizzQuoted

    They should bring Julie Berman back as Maxie :)
    She’s been off-screen long enough for people to forget she was the original Lulu…and she knows the character already (since they were bffs)
    Bet there would be some amazing chemistry with Nathan then!

    • Ann

      I wish they’d bring Julie back as LuLu!

  • Laura Holt

    Nathan should go off to investigate the Claudette mystery until they decide on a temp replacement for Maxie.

  • Natalina

    No cheating. That is out of character for him. I hate to say it but they need to replace Maxie until the actress is better to return. The s/l won’t make any sense to just have him cheat on Maxie without a Maxie there to fight for him, etc.

  • pam r

    My sis & I thought that Valentin was his father. We think Nathan is a Cassadine.
