General Hospital viewers know that Maxie is leaving Port Charles to visit her family in Texas. It looks like being so close to her baby and still not being able to be with her is too much for the new mom. So, she has decided to leave for good. However, the truth is, Maxie portrayer Kirsten Storms has undergone a brain surgery and needs time to recover. So, Maxie is going away. How long will it be before she comes back? Here is everything to know-
Maxie Is Leaving Port Charles
GH viewers are aware that Maxie is struggling with staying away from her daughter Louise. While she knows that Brook and Valentin are keeping the baby safe and loved, she still has a hard time not having her baby with her. So, she keeps visiting “Bailey” at the Q mansion. However, some people think that Maxie might be losing her grip. We recently saw Monica Quarertamie, who thought Maxie was losing it because she found it hard to stay away from Brook’s baby.
What Monica does not knows is, the baby is actually Maxie’s. Nevertheless, Maxie will understand that what she is doing might put Louise at risk. So, she has planned to leave the town. The good thing is, Maxie portrayer Kirsten had got the time to plan the surgery she went through. So, Maxie going away storyline will cover some of Kirsten’s days away from the soap.
General Hospital: When Will Maxie Come Back?
We know that Maxie’s exit from Port Charles is because Kristen underwent surgery. She got a cyst removed from her brain that had split in two. That cyst was causing Kirsten a number of health issues. Thankfully, after getting the surgery done, she has already started feeling better. Now the question is, when would she come back?
Kirsten went through this surgery at the beginning of June. While we don’t yet know how long she will take before she is fully recovered. However, making a wild guess, we can assume that she will at least need a few weeks. It could be longer, but she will indeed need some time. After that, Kirsten will start filming the scenes that will take time too. So, viewers can expect to see Kirsten back in action sometime in August. The good thing is that Kirsten is healing very fast. So, that might speed up the process.
Will Something Change When Maxie Comes Back?
As reported by Soap Dirt, when Kirsten underwent this surgery, the doctors had to shave the lower back part of her head. This has left the actress with a buzz-cut. So, when she comes back to reprise her role, Maxie will be rocking a topknot. Recently, the actress posted some pictures of her post-op stitches. However, now, the stitches are out, and her hair is growing back. But that also takes time. So, we will get to see Maxie with top-knot.
General Hospital: What Will Be Maxie’s Storyline?
There are a number of storylines that Maxie could get involved with once she is back. Viewers are aware that Anna has come really close to unveiling Peter’s disappearance truth. So, it is possible that when Maxie comes back, she might come to know all of this and get to take her baby back home.
Then, another possibility is a romance. General Hospital spoilers reveal that Damian Spinelli is back in Port Charles, and he is here to stay. So, it is possible that when Maxie comes back, she might rekindle her romance with Damian. She might build a happy family with her kids and Damian. There is a lot that can happen; we just have to wait for Kirsten to recover and get back in action. Here’s to hoping that happens soon.
