Who says the soaps don’t have top notch performances? Well, TV Line each week comes up with their choice for Performer of the Week and this week they chose Katie LeClerc of Switched at Birth for top honor!  HOWEVER, guess who was in the running and made their Honorable Mentions?  None other than the Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) of General Hospital!  Kirsten was also in good company with another Honorable selection in Jes Macallan of Mistresses!

As for Storms, what a surprise and treat it has been over the last few episodes of the ABC soap to see sisters Maxie and Georgie in scenes together which carried heavy emotional weight for Maxie! 

TV Line related about Kirsten’s performance: “Kirsten Storms delivered a major punch to the gut when her beloved character Maxie was both treated to and haunted by a surprise reunion’ with her late sister Georgie. Through sobs of joy and sorrow, Maxie was forced to face some unpleasant truths about her recent questionable actions (she’s currently carrying her own child, but passing it off as the unborn baby of her best friend), and appeared to come out the other end of the otherworldly visit better for it. Storms turned in a performance that evoked sympathy for her selfish alter ego, no easy feat indeed.”

So what do you think GH fans … did Kirsten knock it out of the park? Did you enjoy the scenes between Maxie and Georgie? Were you surprised?  Share your thoughts … and congrats Kirsten!

    Can’t wait to see more scenes with Georgie & Maxie! It was so good seeing her again.Georgie is just there to help her sister. Give her the courage to tell Dante and LuLu that the baby she is carrying is hers ! And that their baby died. Looks like a good chance Spinelli & Maxie will get back together.

    I love Kristen Storms as Maxie and she did an excellent performance on the surprise visit of the ghost of her sister, Georgie. I loved the chemistry between them as sisters and hope Georgie will pay more ghostly visits to Maxie on GH!!!!!!

    LOVED those scenes and I wish they would bring Georgie back. Maybe Frisco put her in hiding to protect her or one of his enemies took her after making it look like she died. I’d take Georgie any day over Ellie or Sabrina. Much richer character with a great history!

    Definitely heartbreaking and wonderful “come to Jesus” scenes with Georgie! Awesome job Kirsten!! I was just waiting for Georgie to say not to worry, because Brit is carrying Dante and Lulu’s baby! so much for wishful thinking

    She was excellent!! She had me in tears with Maxie! Hope how soon she and Spin reunite and raise their baby!

    It will be a journey for Spin and Maxie to get back together..
    Spin has love and is committed to Ellie Trout, and he will not dump her and run to Maxie, Spin would not do that..
    Ellie will need to let spin go..

    Ellie’s purpose on GH is to be with Spin…
    So unless she will be leaving GH, it will be awhile before Spin and Mixie reunite..

    If spoilers/rumors are to be believed, Ellie is kidnapped and possibly killed . That def would open the door for a Spixie reunion.

    Kirsten did knock it out of the park!!! She is a fantastic actress and I know that those were real tears in her eyes when she saw and talked to Georgie. It was a wonderful episode, and I really enjoyed watching it!!!

    I hope Maxie tells Lulu and Dante about the baby being hers and Spenelli’s very soon. I know Lulu and Dante will be devastated, but I think there’s a twist there just waiting to come to light. I think Britt’s baby is actually that second embryo and this will be discovered soon after Maxie tells the truth. Am I close???

    Which only begs the question – Why was Georgie killed off the show to begin with?

    Clearly Maxie only does well when her sister is around.

    I adored the scenes btw Maxie & Georgie. Why, WHY, WHY can’t the writers find a way to bring Georgie back? Such a waste. Another casualty of the incredibly destructive Guza Regime.
