In May 2015, Maxie told Nathan that he's the one she wants to be with and that she's in love him. They got back together and are in love.

Making love for the first time

They moved in together in February 2016. On Valentines Day 2016, Maxie thought Nathan was going to propose when he pulled out a jewelry box but it was a charm for her bracelet and she was relieved as she wasn't ready to get married. On February 26, after Nathan was shot, Maxie proposed to him but he turned her down knowing she wasn't ready. Also on February 26-29, while on pain meds after being shot, Maxie tells Nathan that she loves him and he replies by saying "I love you too, Claudette."

In March, it was revealed that Claudette was his wife and about a month later he told Maxie that it was a marriage of convenience and that they had it annulled.

Engagement ring

On April 22, 2016, Nathan surprises Maxie with an engagement party at the The Floating Rib with everyone she loves being there. While there, Nathan proposes to Maxie again (with a ring) and of course she says yes. On October 18, 2016, it was revealed that their wedding is going to take place on New Years Eve 2016, but Maxie got sick and Nathan found out that he was still legally married to Claudette so the wedding was postponed.

Vintage necklace

Introducing themselves

Nathan and Maxie meet when he arrives in town on her doorstep on New Years Eve to sublet her apartment while she's out of town (on her Eat-Pray-Love journey). Maxie and Nathan share a brief discussion about making a fresh start in the new year and past mistakes (mostly about Georgie), where Nathan flirts with her a little and also tries to comfort her (by giving her his handkerchief). Nathan also suggests that Maxie stay but she says she has to leave to find herself. Then when she leaves for the airport there is still something hanging in the air between them.

Nathan sees Maxie

They are seen together again in April, when Maxie returns from her Eat-Pray-Love journey. Maxie and Nathan talk about him having to arrest someone (this is when Maxie finds out Nathan is a cop) and then Levi walks in, half-naked, saying that he just used the rest of Nathan's shampoo. Maxie introduces Nathan to Levi and right off the bat they don't get along. Nathan tells Maxie that he just had to arrest his "mother" for killing his "sister" and Levi tries to give him advice which he doesn't take well and storms out. Afterwards, he picks Britt Westbourne up at a bar, not knowing that they are siblings, and brings her home. Britt and Nathan almost end up having sex but Maxie interrupts them. Maxie tells Nathan that Britt was her doctor during her surrogacy and kept the secret about her baby. Maxie, Nathan and Britt talk some more and then she finds out that the baby Britt gave birth to is really Dante and Lulu's. The next morning, Nathan wakes up and gets a lecture from Levi about how he needs to forgive his mother, which upsets Nathan. Maxie walks in on Nathan about to punch Levi.

Britt is my sister

Later that day, Maxie tries to evict Nathan. He realizes that Levi convinced her to kick him out but Maxie says that she is trying to live a more healthy earth life style even thou the shampoo she uses leaves her hair dull and lifeless but Nathan says that it looks really nice. Then Levi (aka Mr. Truth Pillow) comes out to talk to Maxie and Nathan about Nathan leaving. Nathan asks Maxie if she can speak for herself and Levi asks Nathan where all his anger comes from and Nathan says it's because of him. Maxie says that Levi has done nothing but help him and that Nathan has done nothing but blow up at him therefore Maxie and Levi feel that it's best for him to leave. Nathan asks where he's suppose to go on such short notice and Maxie suggests Britt's since she slept at their place but Nathan says he won't be sharing a bed with Britt because she's his sister which means that Nathan's biological mother is Liesl Obrecht. When Maxie this finds out, she decides to let him stay because that's a lot to process in one day which explains his mood and she also needs his rent money. She asks him if he will stay and he says yes. They also agree to work on him being more positive.

Nathan accuses Maxie of not being able to think for herself

The next day Maxie walks in on Nathan practicing some dance moves and when she finds out the it's for the Nurses' Ball she says that she's surprised because he's very uptight. He asks if that's in addition to being negative, angry and toxic. She says that she never said that, Levi said it and that it was Levi's idea to kick him out. Nathan says that Maxie is full of Levi's ideas and also accuses her of being Levi's parrot and Maxie takes offense to that. Levi later interrupts and tries to kick Nathan out again but Maxie says no. She then finds out that she won't be going to the Nurses Ball and Nathan's point is proven. Before leaving for the Ball, Nathan asks Maxie is she having second thoughts about not going and she says no. After Nathan leaves Maxie decides to watch the red carpet show but Levi turns it off. Maxie turns it back on saying that she will only watch it for ten minutes and when she sees Nathan walk the red carpet she can't take her eyes off of him.

Nathan and Maxie before the Nurses' Ball

Maxie decides to go to the Ball after all. When she walks in Nathan is standing there and he tells her that she looks stunning. Sadly, Levi comes in and then Nathan says he has to perform his number. Nathan along with Magic Milo and the Magic wands perform a striptease to the song "You Shook Me All Night Long" by AC/DC. During the number, he throws his shirt to Maxie. When Maxie decides to do a number with Lulu, she goes back stage to find her but finds a shirtless Nathan instead and the two of them share a moment. Maxie performs a dance number with the Haunted Starlets to the song "I Love It" by Icona Pop. After her number, Maxie and Nathan sit together and steal a couple of glances at each other. When the Nurses' Ball is over Nathan is sad to see Maxie leave with Levi.

Nathan tries to convince Maxie to fight for her daughter

In late May, Maxie comes home with groceries and needs help so Nathan comes to her rescue, shirtless, and they share another moment. Maxie says that she can never figure out if he's about to work out or just wrapped up. Maxie then gets a notice from the courts to appear regarding her daughter. She explains that she and Spinelli took Dante and Lulu to court, she was deemed unfit and Spinelli was given full custody. The six months were up but Maxie decides not to go because she has come to terms with not seeing her daughter. Nathan tries to convince her to go but Maxie tells him that he doesn't know what he is talking about and then tells him to shut the hell up. Nathan says it is up to her but that it would be a mistake not to go out of fear. A few days later, Maxie and Nathan run into each other at the court house, where it is revealed that Maxie missed her hearing but decided that she wanted to fight for her daughter. She explains that she didn't tell anyone she was doing this because she thought she wanted to do it on her own but that was a big mistake. Nathan tells Maxie that he is proud of her and then offers to go with her to meet the judge and she says yes. They meet with the judge, who tells Maxie that she can't see her daughter for another six months because she can't be trusted with an appointment. Nathan then steps in and lies by saying that he threw her notice away. After hearing this, the judge decides to reschedule the hearing. When judge Walters leaves Maxie thanks Nathan for helping her.

Nathan and Maxie at the Floating Rib

The next day, Nathan answers his phone in a towel, hoping it has something to do with Nina but it doesn't. He tells Maxie that according to Madeline, Nina is alive. They talk about him wanting to know if Nina is dead or alive. Maxie says that's kind of how she felt about seeing her daughter and because of him she will get to find out if she can. She wishes she could repay him somehow for what he did for her but he says that listening to him vent about Nina is more then enough. They share another moment until Levi interrupts and then Nathan decides to go get dressed. When he comes back, Maxie and Levi are arguing about the fact the he lied to a judge. They argue some more about how Maxie could get hurt and how nobody wants that, then Nathan leaves for work. A few days later, Nathan and Maxie run into each other in the park after having a bad day (Maxie got into a fight with Levi and Nathan "killed" Ric Lansing). Then they go to the Floating Rib for drinks and continue to talk about Ric and Levi. He kind of explains what happened with Ric and Maxie comforts him and they share another moment where he is about to tell her something but they get interrupted. They also talk about how Levi thinks Gabriel's death was meant to be and then Nathan gives his condolences. He tells her that it's good that she is finally listening to herself instead of Levi. After they finish talking, Maxie helps Nathan polish off the rest of his ribs.

Nathan shows up at Maxie's hearing

On the day of Gabriel's funeral, Maxie goes to the church to see Patrick while Nathan and Levi get into a fight about Maxie that ends in Levi punching Nathan because he told Levi that Maxie ate his meat and she liked it. Maxie breaks it up and finds out that Nathan threw her meat lapse in Levi face and that Levi had made a comment about Ric's "death" and that's why they were fighting (they were actually fighting because of her). After it gets settled, she and Levi go to the funeral. The next day, Maxie is seen at the court house for her hearing about Georgie. Nathan walks in and it is revealed that the hearing wasn't suppose to be until the next day and that the judge wanted Nathan there. They talk some more and then go in for the hearing where they find out that the judge found out that Nathan lied. The judge wants Nathan to testify under oath and he agrees. Before Nathan gets the chance to testify, Maxie tells the judge that Nathan did throw the notice away but he didn't know that she had already seen it and she let him take the blame. Then Maxie makes heartfelt plea to the judge to let her be a part of her daughter's life. Later on, Nathan asks why she didn't let him help her and that he was willing to lie for her but she didn't want him to lose his job or go to jail. The judge rules that Maxie can't see her daughter for another six months, which leaves Maxie devastated. Nathan tries to comfort her but she runs out of the court room. He then accuses Levi of tipping off the judge (which he did). Maxie goes to Lulu for comfort and holds Rocco.

The almost kiss while handcuffed

When she goes home she looks for Nathan but finds Levi instead. Meanwhile, Nathan goes to the Floating Rib to tell Mac that Maxie lost custody of Georgie again. Maxie and Levi talk about Nathan accusing him of tipping of the judge (which he did) and then Nathan comes home and Maxie chews him out for it. When Maxie and Levi decide to protest the Waterfront, Michael, Morgan and Kiki try to get them to leave but they won't, so Michael calls the cops on them for trespassing. Nathan arrives and arrests Levi but when he tries to arrest Maxie, she resists and they end up handcuffed to each other. Nathan tries to reach the key in his pocket and when he finally does, he tries to un-cuff them but Maxie tries to grab it, the key flies out of his hand. They blame each other for the key mishap and argue about where to look for the key but they finally pick a direction and start searching. They continue fighting while looking for the key which they can't find. Maxie wants him to call the station but Nathan says no because he doesn't want his fellow officers knowing he got himself cuffed to a "perp". Since he wouldn't call the station, Maxie says she's going to use her phone to call them but she doesn't have her phone on her so she decides to just use his. When she tries to get his phone she falls and lands on top of him and they almost kiss. Afterwards, he tells her that he has a key back at their apartment and that they can leave at anytime.

Nathan and Maxie asleep

They have to walk home through the park because Nathan can't drive because she on his left side and Maxie can't drive a stick shift. They keep stopping because of her feet and fight the whole way. They finally sit and talk about Nathan blaming Levi for everything but they both end up owning up to their part in the handcuff situation. They also talk about Levi talking her into protesting and then he says that her eyes are beautiful. He says that Levi has to tight a grip on her because she agrees with everything he says. Maxie says that Levi's not the only one who has a grip on her but Nathan says that it's different because they have a grip on each other. They continue walking and arguing until the fireworks start, they stop and watch them and have a moment. The next morning they are sleeping a the couch together after tearing their apartment apart looking for the key. Nathan wakes up to find Maxie sleeping and he stares at her until she wakes up and they have yet another moment that is interrupted by Levi. They start arguing again then Levi tells them that his visa is expired and Nathan says that he is obligated to inform I.C.E but Maxie asks him not too and he agrees. Eventually, Levi finds the key and Nathan unlocks them and they both seem really sad about it.

Nathan and Maxie fight

Later on, Maxie and Nathan start fighting about Levi again and Maxie says that she just wants to forget that last night ever happened. Nathan leaves for work and talks to Dante about his night with Maxie while Maxie talks to Lulu about that same night. Dante and Lulu both accuse them of having feelings for each other which they both explicitly deny. Nathan also tells Dante about Levi's immigration problems. After, Lulu leaves Maxie starts to think about Nathan and questions whether or not she might have feeling for him but she is interrupted when a guy from "I.C.E" shows up. Maxie thinks Nathan called immigration on Levi but Nathan denies it. Nathan keeps denying it and also admits that he cares about Maxie. Nathan tells Maxie that he told Dante about Levi's immigration problems and that Mac said something about calling immigration but didn't actually mean it but she goes to see them anyways and accuses them of calling immigration. Nathan and Levi head to the Floating Rib to see whats going on and they find Maxie with Mac and Dante. Mac and Dante both deny calling and so does Nathan so they check Nathan's phone and it turns that one of the numbers is "immigration". Nathan continues to deny it but Maxie isn't buying it. Later on, Nathan finds all of his stuff outside of his apartment because Maxie evicted him. Maxie lets him in and he tries to explain that he didn't make the call and says that Levi made the call on himself. Maxie, Nathan and Levi argue and then Nathan leaves saying that he will prove that Levi is up to no good.

Nathan stops Maxie's wedding

Nathan shows up at work later, with all of his stuff and talks to Dante about Levi while Maxie asks Levi to marry her to keep him in the country and he says yes. Nathan and Dante talk for awhile and then he goes to the Floating Rib to cool down. While he's there he talks to Mac about Maxie. Later on, Maxie and Levi show up and announce their engagement, which Mac an Nathan are not happy about. Maxie and Nathan start arguing about the marriage and he says that she can't marry Levi because its fraud. At the end of July, Maxie asks Lulu to be her matron of honor and she reluctantly says yes and they also talk about Maxie's feelings for Nathan. Meanwhile, Nathan talks to Nina about Maxie and Levi and finally admits that he has feelings for Maxie. On August 8, the day of Maxie's wedding, Nathan admits to Mac that he has romantic feelings for Maxie. Meanwhile, Maxie is getting ready for her wedding. Later on, Mac walks in and tells her that she shouldn't marry Levi because Nathan has feelings for her. Meanwhile, Nathan finds out that someone stole Felicia's Aztec necklace from Paul Murphy and he goes to confront Levi, where he finds the necklace. He is about to arrest Levi when he pulls a gun on him. Meanwhile, after Mac leaves, Lulu comes in and Maxie tells her about Nathan's feelings. Lulu asks if Nathan having feelings for her changes anything and she says no because she has no feelings him but she says that to everything but Lulu. When Lulu calls her out on that and tells Maxie to look her in the eyes and tell her that she has no feelings for Nathan, she says, "I don't have feelings for Levi". Maxie says she made a mistake and meant to say Nathan. Maxie tells Lulu that she wants to go through with the wedding. Later on, Levi reveals his true intentions, which are to marry Maxie and take the Aztec jewels.

Maxie and Lulu being held hostage at gunpoint while Nathan and Dante watch helplessly

When Nathan tries to get the gun away from Levi they start fighting and it is revealed that Nathan was beat up then tied up by Levi. Later on, Maxie starts having doubts so she goes to see Levi, but Nathan is there instead (she doesn't know that), although he was tied up because of Levi, who was already waiting for Maxie at the alter. Nathan wakes up to Maxie's voice and tries to get her attention but he can't. Later on, Dante finds Nathan tied up and while Dante is untying him, Nathan tells him that Levi is a con and that they can't let him marry Maxie. Meanwhile, Maxie walks down the aisle and is about to say, "I do" when she has second thoughts but Levi talks her out of it. They get back to the ceremony and Maxie says, "I do", however, just as they're about to be pronounced man & wife, Nathan walks in and announces that Levi is under arrest and tells Maxie that he is a con man. Levi then pulls a gun on Maxie and Nathan tries to keep her calm. It is also revealed the the immigration agent is really Levi's accomplice when he ends up pulling a gun on Lulu. Nathan tries to reason with the men, but he has to put down his gun so nothing happens to Maxie. Later on, Levi and his accomplice kidnap Maxie (along with Lulu) but Nathan promises her that he will find her.

Nathan looks through the window and sees Maxie unconscious

Nathan frantically looks for Maxie but when divers find her veil in the water he fears that he may be too late. Meanwhile, Maxie is alive and well and causing havoc for Levi and Scribner. Later on, Nathan talks to Britt about his feelings for Maxie and then follows up on lead with Dante while Maxie causes even more problems for Levi and Scribner. The next morning, Nathan is praying that Maxie is okay while she is tied to a chair. Nathan later tells Britt that once he gets Maxie in his arms he won't let her go and that nothing will ever stand between them again. Meanwhile, Maxie is getting on Levi nerves again so much so that he forgets his phone so Maxie kicks it to Lulu and they are able to contact Nathan and Dante. When Nathan hears Maxie voice there is a huge sigh of relief on his face. Nathan is able to trace the call even after Levi ends it while Maxie talks to Lulu about Nathan and how he was her cosmic message.

Nathan checks on an unconscious Maxie

Later on, Nathan and Dante assemble a task force and arrive at the house just as Levi is about to leave with the girls. Nathan and Dante try to negotiate with Levi, who is using Lulu as a human shield, while Maxie is still tied to a chair. Nathan is able to move so he can see Maxie and mouths to her that he's coming and goes around to the back entrance but before he can do anything, Dante shoots Levi. Maxie is then freed from the ropes and asks where Nathan is. Nathan is still outside when gas starts to fill the room and everyone passes out. It turns out that Victor Cassadine is behind this. Nathan is still outside when Victor starts talking about how someone is missing and he tells Nathan to come out or he will kill Maxie. Nathan comes in, puts his gun down and checks on an unconscious Maxie.

Nathan tells Maxie that he's good

Nathan is seen being escorted by to armed men when Maxie, who is cuffed to a wall, starts calling out. Nathan calls her name and she calls back asking him for help. He tries to get to her but is subdued buy the men and almost knocked unconscious but Victor comes and tells them to knock it off. Victor removes Nathan's blindfold and he asks where Maxie is. Victor says that he can see her but not before he takes some of the blood from Nathan's face. Nathan is then taken to see Maxie, who freaks out because she's worried about what the guys did to him, but he reassures her that he is fine. He is then cuffed to the same pole as Maxie but by both hands and then punched in the stomach. After the guys leave, Maxie asks Nathan how bad he's hurt and he says not that bad. Maxie says that he's lying and Nathan says that she is a sight for sore eyes. Then Maxie tells him that she is really glad to see him and he asks if she's okay. She says besides a killer headache and being chained up that she's fine. Nathan then tries to get up but Maxie tells him to stay put because of all of the pain he's in. Nathan insists that he's good but Maxie tells him to rest before they get started in on plan "B". Nathan says that they can't stay there and Maxie asks if he even knows where they are. He says he got a look when the blindfold was taken off and that they are at Crichton-Clark, the facility that Nina was in during her coma.

Maxie tries to assess the cut on Nathan's face

While they talk Maxie assesses the cut on Nathan's face which hurts pretty bad and he tells her that would probably hurt less if she didn't touch him. He also fills her in on who the real boss and mastermind of this operation is ~ Victor Cassadine. He then gets up and tells her that they will get out of this but she says that he knows that they could die in there and it would be all her fault. She then goes on to explain that if she had listened to his warnings they wouldn't be where they are right now. She asks Nathan if he could ever for her but he says that there's nothing to forgive. Maxie says that's so not true but Nathan disagrees and says Levi is a con man and that he has her head so messed up that she doesn't think that she's perfect just the way she is. He goes on to say that it killed him the watch Levi hurt her and that he couldn't watch her hurt herself anymore, especially over him. She says that he is bruised, beaten and chained to wall because of her. He says that its technically because of the guards. Maxie insists that its because of her and says that they would all be safe and at home if she had listen to her heart and not gone through with the wedding. Nathan asks if she didn't want go through with it because she saw Levi for who he really is but Maxie says no, it was because of him.

Nathan finally tells Maxie how he feels about her

Nathan asks what she means and she explains that Mac came to her before the wedding and told her that she shouldn't marry Levi because he (Nathan) has feelings for her. Maxie tells him that she assumed that Mac was lying to stop the wedding and asks Nathan if what Mac said was the truth. Nathan tells her that he does have feeling for her and has had them since the moment he laid eyes on her. He says that when she answered the door the night he came to sublet he was just dazzled. She says that now she knows he has concussion since she probably looked terrible because she was going through a hard time but he said that she looked beautiful. He also says that it was more then how she looked, it was her personality and the fact that underneath all of her bubbly personality was real pain and he knew that he wanted to comfort her. She says that he tried when he gave her his handkerchief. He also tells her that even thou they only talked for about an hour that he felt this connection to her and then she was gone and he found himself thinking about her and wondering what she was doing. She says that it turns out that she was being duped by a con man. He goes on to say that one of the worst days he could remember was the day he found out about his mother and that when he got home, he didn't have the energy to even turn the lights on. He just sat there, in the dark staring at nothing, but then he looked up and there she was, right when he needed comfort and he couldn't help but wonder if she had been sent back to him to do it.

Maxie tells Nathan that she did think about him

Maxie says that she had know idea he felt that way when she got back and he says that she wouldn't because of Levi. They talk about how obnoxious Levi was and then Nathan says that it all went down hill from there because before he knew they were at each others throats. He didn't know what had happened and if the girl that he had met had actually existed or if he had just made her up in his head. He said that he knew she existed because he could see her underneath Levi's influence and that she was just in a lot of pain. She then apologizes to Nathan for dragging him into this but he says that its not all bad because he finally got his feelings for her out in the open. He then asks her how she feels about him. He says that he didn't mean to put her on the spot, he knows that she left town to put her life back together and that she didn't spend all her time thinking about him.

Maxie tells Nathan that she doesn't trust her judgement

She confesses that she did think about him on the plane, the whole way there, about how nice he was to her right when she needed it and about how he suggested that she stay and she wondered if she should have. She also thought about how he said that she didn't seem so bad the way she was. He says that she wasn't, she doesn't and she says that he doesn't either. Then Nathan says that he's glad their meeting meant as much to her as it did to him but that he's not quite sure that she answered his question. She says that she knows but she doesn't know if she trusts her feeling right now. She also thanks him for stopping the wedding and that she would have been fine if Nathan had shot Levi but he says that he couldn't get a clean shot. Maxie says that Nathan was being hypersensitive to the situation and that she knew by the way he was holding his gun that he had a perfect shot and Nathan thanks her for having faith in him. Maxie says that's just it that it makes perfect sense for her to have faith in him but not long ago she had faith in Levi which turned out to stupid. She just doesn't think that she's in the position to be telling anyone, meaning him, how she feels right now.

Maxie is concerned about Nathan

He says that it's okay if she can't tell him how she feels about him right now because the circumstances are less then ideal. They then agree that they should probably focus on getting out of there. When Nathan tries to get up he is in a lot of pain but tries to hide it. Maxie notices and says that he is breathing funny and asks what if one of the goons broke his ribs but again he insists that he's fine. They then get up and try to figure out how to pick the locks on the cuffs. Maxie brings up the fact that the last time they were handcuffed together they were stuck that way until they got a hold of an actual key. Nathan says how could he forget. Maxie apologizes, saying that the whole situation was all her fault but Nathan says that he actually had fun that night despite the circumstances and she says that she did too. Maxie tells him that she was even a little disappointed when Levi found the key as was Nathan. She says that they need to be a little creative in unlocking these cuffs and he agrees. Nathan is able to knock over a trey that has paper clip on it.

Nathan and Maxie both admit that they were a little disappointed when Levi found the key

He then attempts to unlock Maxie's cuff but gets distracted when he catches Maxie looking at him and they stare at each other for a few seconds before she tells him to focus. He is able to unlock her but then a guard walks in and interrupts them telling them to keep it down. Nathan is able to roll a dumb bell to the door before it closes and then Maxie attempts to unlock his cuffs but breaks the paper clip before she can. She tells him that she is going to go for help but Nathan says its not safe and that they will get him unlocked so he can go with her. She says that he's hurt and even if they could get him unlocked they would get caught in two seconds. Much to Nathan's dismay, Maxie decides it's their best bet for her to go, but before she leaves, Nathan makes her promise that she'll be safe and that she will come back to him.

Then Maxie says she doesn't deserve Nathan because he is all the things she isn't and she always messes things up. Nathan tells Maxie that she could not be more wrong and that he thinks she is beautiful, funny, loving and flawed. She says she's afraid because he is saying all those nice things and looking at her like she's the most important thing in the world and she has a knack for detonating anything good in her life.

C'set un cadeau" to her and when she asks what that means he says it means "it's a gift" and she says that she has gift for him - her lips and then they kiss. Nathan pulls away and Maxie thinks it's because she has morning breath but he says no, he likes the way she tastes but he needs 20 minutes to recharge. She tells him not to scare her like that and that sometimes a kiss is just a kiss. He asks if this is one of those times and she says no. Later, Nathan comes out of the kitchen, in his underwear, with breakfast and Maxie comes in and asks him what he's doing; he says they needed sustenance. She says she can't believe he's cooking and he says he does dishes too, but says that she can handle that.

As Nathan leaves the room, Maxie checks out his butt. Nathan returns with more eggs and Nathan tells Maxie that he's sore. Maxie tells Nathan that this breakfast looks better then the first one and that maybe the delay was a blessing in disguise. Nathan says definitely that practice makes perfect and Maxie says it makes her think what other things get better with practice. N: "Playing piano.", M: "Riding a bike." N: "Throwing a spiral.", M: "Driving a stick.", N: "Tying cherry stems together with your tongue.", and M: "Naked things done in pairs.".

Maxie says she just got finished telling Lulu that she didn't think he was the jealous type and that now he is getting a little possessive because she said that the bartender at the Metro Court is cute. He say yes he is getting all caveman because she was checking him out and Maxie says that it's super sexy when he goes all caveman but he has no reason to be jealous, she hasn't even met the guy. Nathan asks if he should only be jealous of guys she has met, but she says he shouldn't be jealous, period. Maxie notes she told Lulu that he looks more like a soldier than a bartender.

Nathan tries to tempt Maxie

Nathan says she could be right, he tells that the bartender is Jake Doe and Sam Morgan is sure that he is the one that took her hostage and shot him. Maxie tells him that she wasn't the guy who marked up his gorgeous body up but she doesn't believe that it's Jake Doe. She says if Jake Doe did take Sam hostage and shoot Nathan he probably would have been out of Port Charles. She also says that Sam is probably upset that Cesar Faison escaped because he is the one that killed her husband Jason. She asks Nathan what he knows about Jason. Nathan says he knows that he worked for Sonny Corithos and that Faison killed him. Maxie says that they never found Jason's body and says he was very important in Sam's life and grief like that doesn't just go away. Later on, Maxie is trying to get dressed while Nathan kisses her neck and shoulders. He says he could call Dante and see if he could cover for him, Maxie tells him not to tempt her because she has to get over to her mothers. Nathan asks Maxie if he can see her tonight and she says he better see her later and text her so they can figure out where to go. He says anywhere but the Metro Court and she says he still can't be jealous. He says he can, then says "comme ca" (meaning like this) and they kiss.

He starts kissing her and she says no because they will never get out of bed and she has to go to her mom's inauguration even though there is no winner yet due to the missing ballot box.

On March 29, due to Storms' absence, it was explained that Maxie took a job in Portland, Oregon for 3 months.

On May 3, Maxie revealed that she had extended her trip, much to Nathan's dislike.

Nathan and Maxie's first Valentines Day as a married couple

On July 24-25, Nathan and Maxie reunited but it was revealed that the magazine in Portland still needs her and that she's only on a three hour layover on her way to Paris.

On August 9, Maxie surprises Nathan at the PCPD on another layover this time on her way back to Portland. Before they can spend any quality time together, Nathan is called out on a case and Maxie tags along. It turns out to be Mac and Felicia, who were having sex in the park, so Nathan helps them out by not pressing charges against them and Maxie gives them hell for it. Afterwards, Nathan takes her to the airport.


Maxie returns to Port Charles for good on August 29 and finds out that from Felicia that Nathan has been spending a lot of time with Amy and when she finds them outside of a hotel room, she misinterprets everything and ends up slapping both of them. On August 30, Nathan finally tells Maxie that he’s the face of Ask Man Landers.

In September, Nathan is outed as Man Landers, which causes issues for Maxie.

Nathan:...I love you, Mariah Maximiliana "Maxie" Jones. I am deeply and completely in love with you..."
Maxie: "[Scoffs] The answer to your question is, of course, I love you. What? Are -- are you stupid? You had me at -- at --"
Nathan: "Hello?"
Maxie: "I don't think we said hello that night. I think it was somewhere between, "I'm your subletter," and "Detective Nathan West, nice to meet you." I mean, Nathan, you're my hero."

Maxie: "I love you, Nathan. I've loved you for a long time. And even though I said this stupid breakup was your fault because of that boxing match, I know it was partly mine, because I sent you mixed signals and made you think that I was happier with Spinelli. I'm not happier with Spinelli. I'm in love with you. And I know no one will believe this -- maybe not even you -- but I'm not in love with you because you're gorgeous, sexy, or because you can speak French. [Chuckles] I love you because you're kind and honest. And you never gave up on me, even when I stupidly made you think that's what I wanted. You know, we said this was our year. And I'm really sorry that I wasted even a minute of it. What I want more than anything is to make up for lost time. Do you think that we could do that?"
Nathan: Try me."

Nathan (final words to Maxie): "I love you, Maxie... there's no tomorrow."
