General Hospital – May 5
Emily Wilson as Ellie Trout on General Hospital… by bryan-craig-fan
Spixie fans, ’tis true, your favorite GENERAL HOSPITAL couple is no more. Maxie and Nathan kissed and made up, while Spinelli shouted his unrelenting, absolute love and devotion to Ellie. SpEllie went their way (back to Portland) and Naxie went theirs (back to her place!).
Is there any glimmer of hope that they’re suffering from temporary insanity or this is all a dream sequence that they’ll wake from in a few days? Sorry, Spixians, no. But what’s your loss is certainly the gain of SpEllie and Naxie shippers!
“When I got the phone call that I got to go back and fight for my man, I was excited because I do think Spinelli and Ellie make a good couple,” says ginger-haired cutie, Emily Wilson. “The way he literally swept her off her feet at the end was a nice kind of ‘re-happy ending.’ The last time we left, it was unclear whether Spinelli was really making that decision because he wanted to or because he felt like that’s what he should do. This time it was done in a way where it can’t leave a doubt in anybody’s mind that he wants to be with Ellie because that’s where his heart is.”
That said, it most definitely does not mean you’ve seen the last of Wilson or Bradford Anderson (Spinelli). The Jackal is the father of Maxie’s baby and Ellie did have a sweet friendship brewing with Nathan. Both actors are not only on board for future visits to Port Charles — they’d love it!
“I’m always happy to receive a phone call asking to come back. I would do that in a heartbeat!” Wilson cheers. Anderson seconds that motion and raises with an enthusiastic, “Sure! The time away from the character made me love him even more and made coming back to play him even more fun. I hope they’ll call me when they have an idea they’re excited about!”
We got a couple of beautiful promo photos of Emily for this year’s Nurses Ball. I can’t! Be sure you tune in it starts tomorrow.
