Jen Lilley as Maxie Jones

Mariah Maximilliana "Maxie" Jones (formerly Hunter) is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. She has been portrayed by Kirsten Storms since 2005, except for an eleven-month stint when she was temporarily portrayed by Jen Lilley when Storms went on medical leave. She is the daughter of supercouple Frisco and Felicia Jones, although she considered Mac Scorpio as her father. In 2009, Storms was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for the role.


Early years

The character was initially portrayed by child actors Chelsey and Kahley Cuff from 1990 to 1991, Ashley and Jessica Clark in 1992, and Elaine and Melanie Silver from December 1992 to 1993. Robyn Richards assumed the role in 1993, but the character was later aged and recast with Danica Stewart in March 2002. Fan disapproval resulted in the rehiring of Richards. She rejoined the show in August 2002 and her last appearance was July 16, 2004.


Maxie was later recast again with Kristen Storms on May 23, 2005.[4] Jen Lilley was cast as a temporary replacement while Kirsten Storms was recovering from endometriosis, starting September 28, 2011. This was only expected to be for a couple months, but had to be extended when Storms was not ready to return. On January 9, 2012, it was announced that Kirsten Storms was expected to return to the screen in late February 2012. On January 20, however, it was announced that Storms would be unable to resume her role as expected, and that Lilley would continue in the role for the foreseeable future.[5] On June 22, 2012, several reports surfaced saying that Storms was "in talks" to return to the show; and Storms' mother Karen told the Orlando Sentinel that Kirsten would return in late June 2012.[6] On July 21, Lilley posted a YouTube video saying goodbye and thank you after confirming her exit at the General Hospital Fan Club weekend[7]. Lilley last appeared on screen August 10; and Storms returned to the screen September 5, after nearly a year-long absence.


Tony listens to B.J.'s heart inside Maxie

Tony listens to B.J.'s heart, which has just been transplanted into Maxie.

Maxie is born on Halloween night in 1990 and is named after her great-grandmother Mariah and her great-grandfather Maximillian[8]. In 1994, she suffers from Kawasaki disease and requires a heart transplant. Seeing as her cousin B.J. Jones is brain-dead, she recieves the heart transplant from her.

Maxie and her sister Georgie are raised by their mother Felicia and their stepfather Mac Scorpio. Their father Frisco Jones has little involvement with them. Although they keep Frisco's last name, both Maxie and Georgie have always considered Mac to be their father.

Maxie's first crush is on Lucky Spencer, and she goes to extreme measures to get to him. He doesn't return her feelings and she is crushed. Maxie babysits for Lulu, Lucky's sister, as a way of getting his attention but soon begins pursuing Nikolas Cassadine and Zander Smith, and begins a relationship with Kyle Ratcliffe. Maxie and her sister begin to work as candy stripers. Kyle forces her to steal pills from the hospital and lies to Mac about their break-up. Kyle tells everyone at school that they slept together and lures Maxie in and video-tapes the broadcast to the entire school. Maxie goes to prom with Dillon Quartermaine, but ends up kissing Lucas Jones so that they do not sleep together. Maxie befriends Zander and is devasted when he dies in the Port Charles Hotel fire.

Her first love and first serious relationship is with a cop, Jesse Beaudry. Jesse and Maxie are on the run when he is blamed for John Durant's murder. When Jesse is shot on a date at the carnival, Maxie is devastated. At his memorial service, she turns to Lucky Spencer as a way of comfort. Soon after, Maxie seduces Lucky by providing him pain pills during his marriage to Elizabeth Webber. She goes as far as to fake a pregnancy to keep him but this fails and he reconciles with his wife. When getting over Lucky, she fakes a miscarriage and begins to pursue other men and befriends Sam McCall at the Metro Court. At a fundraiser at the hotel, armed gunman hold most of the citiy's famous residents hostage. While trapped inside the vault, Maxie meets the second man she shares a serious relationship with, Cooper Barrett.

Maxie allows Coop to live with her and gets him a job at the Metro Court, although some suspect that he is untrustworthy. Maxie then sets out to ruin Lulu Spencer's love life, who hates Maxie because she feed her brother Lucky drugs, by seducing her boyfriend, Logan Hayes. Lulu breaks up with him and upon finding out, Coop breaks up with Maxie. This is when Maxie admits that she loves him. Maxie later faces a crisis at the Black and White ball, in which mobster Anthony Zacchara forces her to play Russian Roulette. Maxie escapes and finds comfort in Georgie and Coop.

After this incident, Port Charles is struck with a killer who texted his victims before murdering them. In this event, Georgie and Coop die and this causes Maxie grief. The only upside is that her mother returns and they repair their relationship. With the help of Damian Spinelli, she discovers that Diego Alcazar is the murderer and he is killed by Jason Morgan. Maxie gets one last note from Coop at Valentine's Day saying that she will always carry his heart. Maxie begins a friendship with Spinelli, which puts her in danger of the mob due to the fact that he works for Jason Morgan, a mob enforcer.

Maxie begins working for Kate Howard for her fashion magazine. Although this is her dream job, Carly Corinthos asks Lulu Spencer to take the job and they both become assistants. Although there is some friction between the two in the beginning, they work their differences. At this time, Lulu is dating Johnny Zacchara, Maxie's crush. After Logan attacks Maxie, Lulu kills Logan in self-defense. Maxie and Lulu decide to stage an alibi at Kelly's while Johnny and his sister Claudia decide to dump the body. Johnny is put on trial and Maxie's past history comes to present and she has a break-down, leading her to sleep with Spinelli. They pull each other through the tough time and Spinelli decides he still wants to be her friend. Despite their rivalry, Maxie starts to sympathize and show concern for the traumatized Lulu, afraid that she will lose her mind the same way Lulu's mother Laura did. Maxie breaks Lulu out of a mental hospital and after Johnny is proven innocent, the two girls decide they can trust each other and find an apartment together.

Spinelli Maxie

Maxie and Spinelli

After Spinelli is hit by a car during a stakeout, Maxie moves into Jason's penthouse to take care of him during his recovery from surgery. Jason confronts Maxie when he finds her looking for his gun; however, the subject of their conversation quickly turns to Spinelli. Maxie reveals how much he means to her and how he made her see herself as a better person. When Maxie is accosted by members of the Russian mafia in November 2008, Spinelli finds her and brings her to General Hospital. After the attack, Mac forbids her to see Spinelli, as he believes that Spinelli is indirectly responsible for having drawn Maxie into a dangerous lifestyle.

Maxie soon becomes threatened when Winifred Leeds becomes Spinelli's new friend. She feels that the two of them have too much in common, both being computer geeks. She seduces him but when Spinelli finds out that the seduction was due to Maxie's jealousy, they split up. However, Winifred is secretly an FBI agent who enables federal agents to arrest Spinelli. Upon his arrest, Maxie and Spinelli repair their friendship; however, Maxie still feels incredibly guilty and remorseful. The guilt escalates on the night of a blizzard when she almost has a one night stand with Johnny while Spinelli is trapped in the hospital, saving people after a bio toxin is released. Maxie discovers her cousin, Robin Scorpio, hid her daughter Emma in a tree, and she and Johnny save her. They take Emma to Mercy. Upon discovering Spinelli is stuck at General Hospital, Maxie runs inside to save him and is trapped in the fire.

Soon after Maxie's escape from the hospital, Spinelli makes his way out of the burning building, and the two reunite with a passionate kiss. After the crisis at General Hospital, Maxie returns to work at Crimson. Kate hires Johnny to go on publicized dates with Maxie in order to stimulate press for Crimson that neither Spinelli nor Lulu liked. It is revealed that they had both been kissing and Johnny had cheated on Lulu. Spinelli leaves Maxie but they reconcile when Maxie and Sam save him from going to prison for hacking in to government computers.

Maxie and Spinelli

Maxie and Spinelli at their "non-wedding."

Maxie and Spinelli patch up their relationship but are once again troubled when a murder mystery involving Spinelli's PI buisness arrives. Spinelli proposes to Maxie, who eventually agrees to marry him. Their wedding date is set for September 21, 2009. After realizing their relationship need not be complicated at the altar, they agree not to marry. They finish the ceremony, however, with Fr. Coates pronouncing them "not husband and wife." They call the wedding a "non-wedding" and begin to call each other their "non-husband" and "non-wife."

In November 2009, Maxie is seduced by Franco, an artist who is interested in death for art. Soon after discovering her infidelity, Spinelli forgives her and the two agree to move on. Maxie becomes friends with Lulu's boyfriend, Dante Falconeri, who is an undercover cop working to bust Sonny Corinthos. In February 2010, Sonny is revealed to be Dante's father. Showing her loyalty and the tight bind she formed with Lulu, Maxie confronted Dante to see if his feelings for Lulu were genuine.

Then Maxie meets Doctor Matt Hunter. They slowly develop a relationship. One night, Maxie finds a ring in Matt's pants and begins to panic. Later it is revealed that the ring is for Robin and her husband, Patrick Drake. Things start to go better, but when Spinelli wakes up from surgery a changed person, Maxie tries to save who he was and this leaves Matt feeling neglected. Overtime, Matt and Maxie grow apart. Then Matt and Elizabeth begin to grow close. Maxie notices this and is now trying to save her relationship with Matt, but there is one thing standing in her way, Spinelli. Maxie and Matt parted ways in early February due to irreconcilable differences but get back together soon after.

In Summer 2011, Maxie is taken hostage by her enemy Lisa Niles along with Steve, Robin, and Patrick. During this Spinelli breaks into the hostage room to save Maxie. In the end, Lisa goes into a coma and Spinelli gets shot. When Spinelli wakes up as his dream person Jackel P.I. Maxie and a lot of others are very upset by this. After months Spinelli goes back to normal which makes Maxie very happy even though she's dating Matt. In Fall 2011, Matt asked Maxie to go to a party on a boat with him, but she says no. He then asks Liz and she says yes. Maxie is annoyed by Matt and Liz growing very closer, so in-order to get Liz fired from GH she turns her in for stealing drugs. Liz gets fired, and Matt breaks up with Maxie. In order to get Matt back she says she lied but it is unknown if Liz will get her job back.


Maxie blames herself for Robin's death

In Febuary 2012, Maxie's best friend and cousin Robin dies in a fire caused by her carelessness while Robin was working. Mac was planning on telling her, but then asks Spinelli who at the time (moved out soon after) was living with her to tell her about Robin. Maxie, shocked, says he's lying because he's mad that she asked him to leave. When Spinelli shows Maxie the news online, she learns it's true and starts to scream and cry. In the end she hugs Spinelli. When Maxie learns that her carelessness played in a role in setting off the lab explosion, she is devastated and blames herself. Wanting to punish herself for Robin's death she confesses to murdering Lisa and first mate Briggs. Her friends and family try to convince her to take back her confession but she is relentless in punishing herself and having no other option, they are forced to sit back and watch as Maxie went to trial with Alexis Davis as her defense.

In May 2012, Maxie was sentenced to twenty years in prison without parole for the murder of Lisa Niles and first mate Briggs. Maxie takes the sentence as punishment for Robin's death, even though she confesses to Spinelli that it was actually Matt who murdered them and she is doing this to protect Patrick and Emma from losing anymore family. Against Maxie's wishes, Spinelli then comes forward with the information and tells the courts that it was Matt and not Maxie that killed Lisa in order to get her out of jail. Maxie is hurt by this and vows to never forgive Spinelli. Maxie is then released from prison, but only under the condition that she sign an affidavit, which would make her testify against Matt in exchange for her freedom. To get around this affidavit, Maxie marries Matt so that she does not have to testify against him. Matt however cannot live with what he did on his conscience when he remembers the night's events in full and he leaves Maxie on their uneventful wedding night to turn himself in.

After Matt turns himself in, Maxie refuses to get a divorce, and despite more pleas from concerned friends and loved ones such as Spinelli, she devotes herself to waiting patiently for her husband's release. Lulu helps Maxie adjust to her spouse's absence. Maxie forms a quick friendship with Patrick and helps him care for Emma in Robin's absence. On July 4, 2012, Maxie discovers that Patrick is addicted to prescription pills, which he has been taking to get high so he can cope with the death of Robin. On the night of the opening of The Haunted Star club which Lulu co owns with Johnny Zacchara Maxie and Lulu follow a drugged Patrick who is having hallucinations of Robin and still on pills although they believed he had stopped. Lulu later confides in Maxie that Patrick called her "Robin" and then kissed her. Maxie then realizes that Patrick is taking the pills to cope with the loss of his wife, and together she and Lulu convince Patrick to check himself into General Hospital to be treated for his drug use.

Maxie tells Spinelli that they were only friends, and she felt like she had something more with Matt. Spinelli then retaliates that for years, he was Maxie's devoted and loyal companion, and gave her unconditional love and support, and she writes him off when he was trying to help her. Now, he's done with her, and refuses to even be her friend anymore. Spinelli avoids her, turning the other way when he sees her in the same room as him. She begs him to at least talk to her so they can work to be friends again. Spinelli refuses, saying he has an unbearable pain to deal with whenever she's around and he needs to find a way to get past that before he can be her friend again. Meanwhile, Lulu believes she is pregnant, and Maxie helps her out when she needs a pregnancy test. Though it's later proven that Lulu isn't pregnant, she tells Maxie how she & Dante want to become parents soon, and Maxie offers her full support.

Meanwhile, Spinelli starts dating a lab technician named Ellie Trout, whose quirky humor and intelligence are similar to Spinelli's own personality and starkly different from Maxie's own debonair style & fashionable personality. Maxie is a little upset about this, but doesn't think much of it. However, when her mom comes back to town, and explains how Mac was always her one true love, not Frisco, Maxie comes to realize that Spinelli is her Mac, and she loves him very much. She tries to tell Spinelli this, but is unable to because he spends most of his time with Ellie, and she tells Lulu how she's worried she'll never get to tell Spinelli about her change of heart.

To make a point, Maxie gets a divorce from Matt, hoping to change Spinelli's mind. However, Spinelli doesn't react the way she hopes. Maxie eventually moves in with Ellie, hoping to get a chance to talk to Spinelli when he visits Ellie. Eventually, she does, and tells Spinelli she's in love with him. Spinelli is shocked and upset, believing Maxie is just saying it because he's now with Ellie, and is unreachable, and she always goes for what she can't have. Maxie insists she's changed, and is not the same person she once was. She asks Spinelli for a second chance, but he tells her that he can't wait for her anymore and is choosing to be with Ellie. Maxie is heartbroken by his choice, but decides she needs to accept it.

To preoccupy herself, Maxie spends time with Lulu, and finds out she & Dante are looking into surrogacy because Lulu can't carry a baby & they're not able to adopt. Maxie then offers to be the surrogate for Lulu & Dante when they don't have any luck finding a suitable surrogate to carry their baby. Lulu is doubtful about this initially, but after having no luck with any candidates, she takes Maxie up on her offer.


Maxie with a jackal puppy.

Lulu & Dante are able to have their embryos frozen, and one is implanted into Maxie. On Christmas Eve, she starts to feel sick, and calls Spinelli, who brings her to the hospital. Dante & Lulu later arrive, and Maxie gives them the happy news that she is pregnant. Meanwhile, Maxie finds out Ellie broke up with Spinelli on Christmas Eve for leaving her alone on their date when he went to help Maxie. Spinelli has asked Ellie to meet him for New Years' Eve in order to give him a second chance, but Ellie doesn't want to. Maxie, though, convinces her to because she knows Ellie misses Spinelli a lot. After she leaves, Maxie ends up getting an unwelcome visitor in the form of a lost puppy. In her attempt to get the puppy out of her apartment, Maxie trips and falls. She goes to the hospital to check if the baby's okay, and Maxie finds out she has miscarried. She's disappointed in herself for not being able to help Dante & Lulu.

Maxie goes to the hospital rooftop, where she finds Spinelli, drunk and upset. Ellie never showed up for their date, and Spinelli believes that Ellie has broken up with him for good. Maxie, upset herself, sits with Spinelli and later ends up taking him back to her place, where they sleep together on the New Year's night. The next day, Spinelli thinks that maybe them together is a sign that he was meant to be with Maxie all along. Maxie is hopeful, until Spinelli finds a voice message left for him, saying Ellie was hit by a car the night before, and is at General Hospital, recovering. He rushes to her bedside, while Maxie waits for Dante & Lulu to come so she can tell them about the miscarriage. She's unable to, though, because Lulu leaves when she finds out her father, Luke Spencer, is in trouble.

Maxie goes back to the hospital, and asks her OB-GYN to implant another of Dante & Lulu's embryos into her so they won't have to know about Maxie miscarrying. However, she finds out that can't happen because Maxie is already pregnant. She realizes she's pregnant with Spinelli's child. Maxie decides that she's going to let Dante & Lulu believe the child she's carrying is theirs, and let them raise her child as their own. She also finds out that Spinelli told Ellie about his one-night-stand with Maxie, but that she forgave Spinelli. Maxie stays firm in her decision to give her child to Dante & Lulu.

Maxie ends up in trouble when her OB-GYN, Dr. Britt Westbourne, blackmails Maxie using her secret against her. Britt has just been dumped by Patrick. Bitter and resentful, she forces Maxie to help her sabotage the career of nursing student Sabrina Santiago, who has a crush on Patrick & who Britt blames for her break-up with Patrick. Maxie later finds out that Britt was mean to Emma, and Patrick found out, and left her. Wanting to keep her secret, Maxie agrees to switch out medication bottles to make it look like Sabrina gave a patient the wrong medication that led to his death. Maxie is immediately guilt-stricken, and upset at being forced to hurt Sabrina. Fortunately, though, her father, Frisco, comes to town and she confides the truth to him about her baby & Britt. Frisco gets Britt to back off Maxie, and Sabrina is allowed to stay in the nursing program and complete her studies.

Patrick & Sabrina resurrect the Nurses' Ball to honor Robin's memory. Maxie attends with her family, and finds out that Frisco wants Felicia back, but Felicia has renewed her romance with Mac. At the Nurses' Ball, things come to a head when Frisco asks Felicia to marry him. Felicia declines, and tells Frisco that Mac is the man she wants to be with. Frisco walks out hurt, intending to leave Port Charles. Maxie follows him, wanting him to stick around for her sake. He doesn't, though, and Maxie is hurt when her father walks out on her again. She confides that he was able to keep the secret about the baby from coming out. Unknown to Maxie, Ellie overhears this conversation and wonders what secret Maxie is hiding.

Lulu disappears, and Dante leaves to rescue her. When Lulu comes back, she has no memory of her family or friends. Maxie is worried about handing her child over, in case Lulu doesn't get her memory back, and ends up splitting from Dante. She starts thinking about raising her own child during this time. Lulu, though, recovers her memory and Maxie is thrilled. However, Ellie finds out soon after about Maxie's miscarriage by snooping through her medical files. She also realizes that Maxie is carrying Spinelli's baby, and tries to tell him. Maxie stops her, though, by convincing her that Spinelli might leave her if he knows the truth.


Maxie during her c-section.

Maxie goes into labor after Mac & Felicia's wedding ceremony. At the hospital, the doctor says the baby is in distress, and Maxie starts thinking the baby has a heart problem like she does. Lulu reminds her, though, that the baby isn't hers. Maxie tries to tell Dante, Lulu, and Spinelli the truth, but the doctor comes in and says that Maxie needs to have an emergency C-section in order to save the baby. Maxie gives birth to her daughter with Lulu next to her. Together, they cut the umbilical cord as Dante & Spinelli watch from the observation window. After Lulu leaves, Maxie starts hemorrhaging and is her fate is left in limbo. She gets a visit from Georgie, and explains how she's thinking about dying because everyone would be better off. Georgie brings her outside the room to show Maxie that she's wrong. Ellie is getting ready to tell Spinelli the truth, and her parents are worried about losing their other daughter, as well. Maxie decides to stick around to face the music, and recovers.

When Maxie wakes up, she insists that the baby is hers & Spinelli's, but Mac & Felicia believe she is delirious from the drugs she was given. Maxie wakes up, and goes to visit her daughter. Spinelli, though, comes in and brings Maxie back to her room before she can breastfeed the baby. He reveals that he knows the truth, and shows how betrayed he feels. However, he agrees to keep the secret because he doesn't want to hurt Dante & Lulu, which is Maxie's reasoning. Dante & Lulu come to Maxie's room, and say how they're concerned Maxie is too attached to "their" daughter, and want her to stay away. Maxie is not willing to accept that, and agrees to go to counseling so they won't stop her from seeing her baby, whom Dante & Lulu name Connie.


Maxie holds her daughter.

Dante and Lulu ask Maxie and Spinelli to be the godparents of their own daughter. After the christening, Brad Cooper tells Dante and Lulu the truth about the baby. Maxie tries to lie but has no choice but to tell them that what Brad said is true. The Falconeri's are crushed and want to know what happened so Maxie tells them. Lulu also slaps Maxie and then leaves with Dante. Maxie and Spinelli talk about how they don't think that Dante and Lulu will want to raise a child that isn't theirs. Later on, Maxie and Spinelli decide that they want their daughter, but at the same time Dante and Lulu decide they want to keep the baby. The four of them meet up to discuss the baby. Both sets of parents have a different idea: the Falconeri's want Maxie and Spinelli to give up their parental rights, but Spinelli and Maxie say they want their daughter. Lulu says she's taking them to court to get custody of Connie, leaving Maxie & Spinelli shocked. Later they call Diane Miller for help while Dante and Lulu call Alexis.

In court, both Maxie and Lulu reveal each other's dirty secrets, painting each other as unfit. Lulu had Alexis accuse Maxie of murdering her cousin, Robin, because at the time everyone believed Robin was dead and that Maxie played a part in it. After that Maxie has Diane bring up the fact that Lulu was real murderer in the custody hearing (she killed Logan Hayes and had an abortion). Maxie also has Diane ask Lulu about the fact that she was planning to run away with Connie, a fact Lulu blurted out to Maxie in a moment of anger. Lulu claims Maxie's lying, which she wasn't. After everyone testifies, the judge adjourns to make his decision but soon comes back with his decision.


Maxie reunites with Robin.

Maxie loses custody of baby Connie, as the judge declares her unfit to be a mother. Instead, he gives Spinelli sole custody of the baby. Maxie can't go within 20 feet of her daughter for a period of six months. Maxie tries to violate the court order by showng up on Spinelli's doorstep on the pretext of giving a gift to Connie, but wanting to be able to spend time with her daughter. Spinelli, though, refuses and is adamant Maxie leaves because if he lets her near Connie, Maxie will be sent to jail and Spinelli will have Connie taken away from him. Maxie refuses, though, to stay away from her daughter, but Spinelli shuts the door in Maxie's face, and she walks away, dejected.

Maxie goes to Georgie's grave, and reveals that she's depressed over not being able to see her daughter, and is planning to swallow enough pills to commit suicide. Before she can, though, Robin shows up, and Maxie thinks she's a ghost like Georgie, trying to stop her from killing herself. Robin, though, slaps her, and Maxie realizes Robin is alive and there in person. Robin reveals her death was staged, and she was held in captivity for the last two years. Robin convinces her to not swallow pills, and Maxie decides to stay with Robin.

Spinelli later tells Maxie that Ellie got offered a job in Portland that she wants to take, and Spinelli wants to go with her. Maxie encourages him to go and to take Connie so that she won't be tempted to violate the judge's ruling. Eventually, Spinelli decides to move to Portland, but before he leaves, he comes to Maxie's place and allows her to say goodbye to their daughter. Maxie and Spinelli agree to rename their daughter Georgie, and say goodbye. Soon after, she calls her parents and Robin over, and reveals that she has decided to leave Port Charles for a journey of self-discovery. She stops by Lulu's place, and apologizes for all the pain she caused her. Lulu isn't ready to forgive her just yet, and Maxie understands, saying she hopes to return as someone better who Lulu will forgive.
