If you’ve been wondering where Max has been on General Hospital since he was rushed to the hospital after getting mowed down at the carnival, his portrayer Derk Cheetwood shed some light on the issue via Twitter.

In response to a recent incoming tweet, presumably regarding his character’s onscreen absence, Derk replied, “I was working on the Mentalist at the time, they had to write me out, sucks when that happens.”

He later noted, “Filmed with Carolyn yesterday, the scenes where [sic] great and fun of course, Mostly about where we’ve been and what’s been going on but…FUNNY!”

It’s good to know we’ll be seeing Max and Diane soon and with an explanation of what’s been going on with them offscreen!
