The backstory of Claudette, the ex-wife of Nathan West (Ryan Paevey), has started to come to light, especially after last Friday’s cliffhanger on General Hospital.
After Nathan and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) have a major strain in their relationship over Nathan not being forthcoming about having an ex-wife, the two seem headed for trouble. Then when Nina (Michelle Stafford) moves into their place, and Maxie heads out, Nathan tells his sister his truth about Claudette West. He married her to get her a green card to stay in the country. Once together, apparently she cheated on him. Nina says he needs to make things right with Maxie, and of course, she would be upset about his withholding this information from her.
When Nathan turns the conversation to Nina’s failing relationship with Franco (Roger Howarth), she grabs Maxie’s tablet that she left behind and tells Nathan that Maxie has been doing some research … looking up Claudette West. Meanwhile, Maxie runs into Griffin (Matt Cohen) at the MetroCourt, and after exchanging some barbs (is this true love in the making?), the two sit down for a chat where Griffin reveals he is Duke Lavery’s son, and they just brought in to custody Carlos Rivera, the man that shot him. Maxie is so moved about Griffin’s relationship with Duke, because of her family’s relationship with the late mobster. She then says she understands how Griffin feels having had her beloved sister, Georgie murdered and wanting justice.
When Griffin leaves the table for a moment in rushes Nathan! He tells Maxie every word Nina told him to say to her to woo her back. Nathan then proceeds to get down on one knee and proposes marriage to her! Maxie looks thrown by it, but not in the best of ways. When Griffin walks back in the room he sees Nathan for the first time, and it’s made very clear that he knows exacly who Nathan is.
Watch the scene below from Friday’s GH! Then weigh in: What is the relationship between Griffin and Nathan?
