Daytime Confidential's 10 Best Soap Couples of 2009
No. 4: Spinelli and Maxie, General Hospital
Spixie fans almost got the wedding of their dreams on General Hospital in 2009. You heard right, almost. When most soap opera couples have a fanbase as undeniable as the one devoted to Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and Damien Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) TPTB tends to give them what they want— at least some of the time. That being said, we never believed for one second the brass would actually give Spixie the fairytale wedding they deserve.
Instead, Spixie lovers were treated to a bizarre-yet-oddly-charming "non-wedding", that saw the quirky, young lovers realizing they still needed to grow as people separately before making a life long commitment. Too bad part of Maxie's "growth process" saw her cheating on Spin with psychotic artist Franco (James Franco), proving the young anti-heroine still has a lot of growing up to do. Here's hoping that 2010 will be the year Spixie finally gets it right.
