Soon, everybody will get to throw themselves into new storyline developments with fresh episodes of General Hospital. The cast and crew began filming again last week after a 4-month pause during the coronavirus pandemic. Now, many GH stars are sharing promos via their social media pages to help hype the soap opera’s return. Kirsten Storms — who plays Maxie Jones on the show — did so via Instagram, and her update generated some fun banter among the fans.
When viewers last saw Maxie on General Hospital, she appeared to realize that she was probably pregnant. She has been in a relationship with Peter August for some time now, but he has been hiding some massive secrets from her. Viewers will soon see what comes next for this couple, but Kirsten’s caption made it seem like she was dropping some hints about a development she would love to see.
The GH actress shared a social media post from the show’s page via her Instagram page on Tuesday. She teased that all it took for her to reshare the update was to see Donnell Turner’s photo prominently featured. Her caption prompted a big response in the comments section.
Donnell plays the character of Curtis Ashford, who is currently married to police commissioner Jordan Ashford. However, it looks like Kirsten would like to see the writers put Maxie and Curtis together.
When one fan suggested that very thing, the General Hospital star was quick to respond.
“I’ve wanted a Curtis and Maxie pairing for a while now!” a fan commented.
“I’ve been dropping not so subtle hints about that for a while,” the GH star replied.
The post received 300 likes and followers immediately started to contemplate name possibilities for the theoretical General Hospital couple. “Murtis” was one suggestion and “Caxie” was another. “Curtsie” was also suggested. It seemed like viewers were entirely game to see these two characters put together.
“@kirstenstorms that would be such a fun pairing! On some kind of mystery shenanigans! You two would shenanigan so well together!” someone teased.
“@kirstenstorms ahhhh that would be such a HOT pairing!!!” another person declared.
The actress has previously said she’d love to see her character interact more with Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Jason), and she’s frequently praised her current General Hospital on-screen love interest, Wes Ramsey.
At this point, it doesn’t seem likely that this couple will get together anytime soon. However, should the show’s writers need a little nudge to consider something wild, this Instagram update shows that the pairing is a popular idea.
