General Hospital: Maxie Hints A Nathan RETURN?

It has been a while since we saw Detective Nathan West walk the grounds of Port Charles on General Hospital. The last we saw of him was when he was fatally shot by his own father, the supervillain, Cesar Faison. Nathan was an extremely loved character and had formed a massive fan following in the short few years that he was part of the ABC soap. Thus, his passing left not only his lady love, Maxie Jones, heartbroken but also the entire fandom. However, it seems that suddenly there has been a lot of name-dropping happening for Nathan.

The good detective passed away due to gunshot complications in January 2018 on General Hospital. While Maxie mourned him for a long time, there came a point where it seemed like there would be a new love interest for her. Dr. Austin Holt! But honestly, that didn’t fly at all. Maxie and Austin never could pass the chemistry test on-screen, and the story eventually fizzled out. Later, it felt like she and Damian Spinelli may have a shot, given how much he adores her. But zilch! The makers do not seem interested in shipping them together, again. So what gives? What exactly do the makers have in mind for Maxie’s love life?

Will Nathan Come Back From The Dead?

Going by all the Nathan-related name-dropping Maxie has been doing all of a sudden, we can’t help but wonder if General Hospital is planning to undo another death! By now, it has become well-established that soap operas do not function by the laws of nature. Thus, deaths are never set in stone. In fact, they can be even more temporary than the tattoos that come with Bubblegum wrappers! In the June 22, 2023, episode, Maxie spoke about how difficult it was for her in the beginning, but she eventually moved past Nathan. That’s exactly the kind of thing someone would say on soap right before getting hit by a blast from the past!

However, Ryan Paevey was so loved as Nathan that fans would accept it with open arms if General Hospital found a way to dig Nathan out of his grave. Besides, there are a plethora of reasons why his death could have been faked. They could always create a backstory where Nathan was kidnapped by a GH villain. Or, he was sent away on an undercover operation! What do you say? Are you on board with a Maxie-Nathan reunion? Tell us in the comments. Meanwhile, stay tuned to General Hospital to see what’s in store for Maxie Jones!
