Monday’s episode of General Hospital saw the launching pad for the upcoming summer storyline that will definitely feature Bree Williamson (incoming Claudette), Ryan Paevey (Nathan), Molly Burnett (as temporary Maxie) and most likely Matt Cohen (Griffin), by deducing the secret that Nathan spilled to Maxie (Kirsten Storms).
In story, Nathan confesses to Maxie about his past with Claudette, and that their relationship had been imploding. He began drinking one night after believing she had been cheating on him, although he had no proof. Another time, he got called into the police station unscheduled to work, and then went out afterwards with some of the guys and got wasted. When he returned home he found Claudette in bed with another man. Nathan took out his gun and blindly shot at the guy. However, Nathan doesn’t remember much after that, because he passed out. When he awoke he saw blood on the sheets, but the guy was gone and he never saw him, nor did anyone ever press charges agains him, nor did he report it.
Maxie is more than upset saying that Nathan is not the man she thought he was. She needs to go spend the night elsewhere, and that this secret could come back to bite them.
From all likelihood it would appear Griffin has to be the man Nathan shot, who never pressed charges. After all, Griffin recognized Nathan a few months ago with a knee-jerk reaction, and has that bullet wound scar to prove it.
