General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) will get some stunning news regarding her baby. Maxie will react to this bombshell from her doctor, so this seems to be something legit – not part of the fake stillbirth scam Maxie plans to run with Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).
We can’t forget that there’s a real baby involved here, so Maxie and Brook Lynn can’t control every last detail. Baby Lou has a mind of her own, so she may cause some inadvertent hurdles for her mom and her pretend mom-to-be.
General Hospital spoilers say Maxie will process this shocker and give Peter August (Wes Ramsey) updates on the situation. On May 17, Peter and Maxie will reach a decision that relates to the birth of their child. When you add all this up, it makes it sound like Maxie will need a C-section at GH.
The baby may not be in the right position for a natural delivery, so Maxie may fill Peter in and decide with him that this is the best option.
Of course, there’ll be risks involved, especially if this is an emergency C-section that has to happen fast. Baby Lou could be at risk of dying for real if things get especially dangerous.
If there’s a silver lining, it’s that it’ll perhaps be easier to keep Peter out of the picture. Peter is determined to score a spot in the delivery room at General Hospital, but a C-section would change the game.
It’d make this a more stressful delivery and could perhaps give Maxie a reason to keep Peter at a distance.
This could also make it more believable when it comes time to tell Peter the baby didn’t make it. It’ll be easier to sell the story of an emergency C-section gone wrong, particularly if Peter wasn’t around to see Baby Lou enter the world.
It’d be tough to call Maxie’s C-section a blessing in disguise exactly, so it’d be more like making lemonade out of lemons. General Hospital spoilers say Maxie could turn a bad situation into the final piece of her baby scam with Brook Lynn.
This could be what ultimately allows Maxie to hand Baby Lou over to Brook Lynn without any major red flags.
General Hospital spoilers say some other curveballs are still to come for Maxie and Brook Lynn, so stay tuned to ABC’s GH. CDL will have all the hottest General Hospital spoilers, updates and news you need, so stop by regularly.
