GENERAL HOSPITAL: Levi Dunkleman Revealed To Be Peter Harrell!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On yesterday’s General Hospital, more clues were revealed as to the true identify of “Levi Dunkleman”.  As Scribner is being tended to at General Hospital after being shot, Anna (Finola Hughes) questions him if he knows where Levi (Zachary Garred) took Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan).  Standing with Anna are Nathan (Ryan Paevey), Mac (John J. York), and Felicia (Kristina Wagner)!

Scribner then reveals that Levi’s real name is Peter Harrell, not “Levi Dunkleman”!  When the name “Peter Harrell” is uttered, Felicia looks shocked.  She then reveals to the room that Peter Harrell was  her ex-fiancee!  But it would seem that “Levi”  must be Peter Harrell Jr.!

The original Peter Harrell was played by Judson Scott from 1984-1985 on GH, who in story was trying to get Felicia for himself against his adversary Frisco (Jack Wagner), because he ultimately was interested in  getting his hands on Felicia’s precious Aztec treasure.  Later, when Frisco and Felicia went on the run, Harrell was arrested and later presumed dead, but the body was never found.

So, will Levi turn out to truly be Peter Harrell Jr.?  What do you think of the latest plot twist?  Weigh-in!

I’d rather have JW back as Frisco. An Aztec story without Frisco is just wrong.

Michael

Maybe he will come back since they keep secrets very tight lipped in this regime, which they should.

I totally agree!

I think it was a real twist. Connected to Fluke? Keeps me interested in the story for sure

The Aztec treasure story was long before Sonny. So, Fluke’s connection to it, and his personal vendetta against Sonny, wouldn’t come from Felicia’s jewelry.

I am very excited about this plot twist! Anything that invokes Frisco, Felicia and treasure is A+ in my book! Bring back Jack! Put Kristina in the forefront!!

Jimmy

When Felicia said “he was my fiance” I was thinking huh?! Levi is wayyy too young to be her ex-fiance! There’s no way that’s possible! But, being Peter Harrell’s son, this was a great reveal!

I love that the twists keep coming! When it was revealed that Levi would be somebody’s son, I thought he and whoever Fluke really is would be related, but it doesn’t look that way now. This is a great use of history and it works with the story. But now, the question is, is Peter Harrell Sr. still alive, and working with his son? My theory is that Peter is holding Frisco captive and that’s why he’s unreachable.

I think Fluke is SR. Never found his body.

SR. has no beef with Sonny.

I appreciate the attention to history but even I had forgotten this tidbit. Seems lately the game in the writing room is to find a link to the past even if the story lines are not so great.

KM

I agree. The character of Peter was only a brief blip on the radar screen 30 years ago. Not a favorite story of mine at the time and I don’t really care about him or the rather shaky connection to Levi now.

I wonder if this makes any sense to anyone who hasn’t been watching since dirt.

Daisy

It doesn’t!

Timmm

Too far of a reach BUT if it brings Jack Wagner back and they give him a good story with maybe a little retro “On Location” shoot, go for it!

Shay

Absolutely, Timmm! Frisco must be brought back to repair the damage inflicted by the dreadful hatchet job that impugned his character during last year’s disgusting storyline.

Omar

Thank you Iakovos, you said it best..This recycle stuff was good in the beginning but now its just ridiculous and the story lines are suffering big time..This story and the one with “Fluke” which probably is going to be the presumed dead Frank Smith or Damian Smith or the insane Grant Putnam or the other character that Geary played that was not Luke, forgot his name.

Its nice to see GH is doing better in the ratings and that the show is still on the air, that said, this show is really getting from average to bad in the last few months..They need to press the reset button and come up with some solids storyline, much like the did last year and the year before when the show was on fire and entertaining.

Ashleigh

I started watching when Claudia was on. She was AMAZING! I thought GH was on fire then. Now I’m super confused. They seem to be much better at keeping the fans guessing, unlike Y&R. Sigh.

MBmomof3

Me too. Which is weird because I was a very devoted fan during that timeframe and storyline. My memory isn’t what it used to be I suppose. This could be good.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I always thought he was a Peter…lol

aria

sounds plausible, thank goodness hope this puts to rest the sick twisted rumor of levi being frisco son, uhh, just the thought makes me wanna go shower. this makes sense, i remember this storyline although i was a kid, but felicia did have a fiance i remember him being bad. sean and robert even luke were part of this storyline.

Timmm
Timmm

You bring up a good point as to why Fluke would not be involved with Levi but Luke could be. Luke, Robert, and Sean were apart of this Aztec storyline. Whomever Fluke is PROBABLY would not be connected.

Christy
Christy

I know! I was yelling at the tv yesterday… ‘what about Sean Donnelli?” 😀 But he is just so old and frail from that poisoning that Luke had. We were left not knowing if Sean lived or not.

would be fun to get Tiffany & Sean back on!

Erick
Erick

Sean’s appearance last year left me wondering if John Reilly was in a wheelchair for real, that’s how bad they made Sean look. But I’ve seen pics of him at the Fan Club Weekends the last couple years and he’s looked the same as always, standing tall with that big grin. A fit 77! Get him back! It would be great if he’d return to support Anna briefly. It’s too bad his only interaction was with Luke and Holly. His best stories were his romance with Tiffany (too bad Sharon Wyatt’s unable to act now), solving all the cases and hanging out with Robert and Anna.

Timmm
Timmm

Sean and Tiffany would be great. This is problem with GH. Blame who you wish. They bring on legacy characters and give them very little to do OR in Sean’s case, never follow up on his well being. DONT bring people on the show just for us fans to so Ahhhhh!

aria
aria

i keep hearing that tifany and sean’s daughter whose named after anna, but goes by annie is suppose to be on the show, and that she takes after anna more then robin does.

CeeCee
CeeCee

So, Timmm, are you saying Lulu was kidnapped along with Maxie because Levi and associate(s) hold ancient rancor toward Luke? I am assuming Levi’s actions are being directed by his father, who was presumed dead…what a surprise !!! Lol…..but, is now alive. I am starting to get the picture. Levi also seems to despise Felicia. Did he know her as a very young child or is he being fed venom against Felicia by his father? ….interesting…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Seriously, Peter or not, its great to see Felicia and Mac given more airtime…maybe he is Peter with or without ties to Fluke…if Fluke was Peter Sr., why wouldnt he hit on Felicia or kidnapped her…maybe Levi and Peter are just aliases…maybe Levi is really Mr. Marbles bent on revenge against Mac for not defending him against Epihany…lol

Christy
Christy

I thought about that too… that Peter Harrell might be another alias, plucked out of the old newspaper stories about the treasure and Felicia and Frisco.

so he’s not Evil, ur, Levi, maybe not Peter, perhaps Mr. Marbles, obviously not Casey (the alien), but could also be son of crazy Ryan Collins, yet could still be Sly Ekert working with Fluke… or a Cassadine

Omar
Omar

LOL, that is a good one, Mr. Marbles

Erick
Erick

I’ve always expected Sly to show up. That was always a missed opportunity in my book: cousin of Carly, Lucky, and Lulu, etc.
That’s why I think Fluke is Bill Eckert and he’s out for revenge against Sonny because somehow Sly died, and Bill holds Sonny responsible because the mob (Frank Smith, who both Sonny and Luke worked for) did it. Smith’s goons also “killed” Bill.
There was a scene some months back where Fluke was counting his money in the ELQ offices and said to the air, “I get to make a little money off of this, that’s not wrong, is it?” As if he was talking to someone who was dead, like a kid.

Brad

I loved the Aztec storyline when it was airing and this is a great twist. Of course, we need JW back as Frisco now. He needs to come to his daughter’s rescue.

Again a big who cares. I appreciate the use of history but I always get the felling that writers think the viewers go WOOOOOW when stuff like this is revealed. I mean c’mon soap fans have seen it all.

Engrady Pind

I really don’t care, just get him off the screen.

As much as I find this storyline to be boring, I do like the history being used. I always loved Frisco and Felicia. When I was little, I thought Kristina Wagner was gorgeous with her long blonde hair. I still think she is gorgeous. I like seeing Mac and Felicia more. I will always miss Frisco. I still remember Frisco singing “All I Need” and “Lady of My Heart” to Felicia on GH in the 80’s. Just iconic.

yah!
I’m luvin the Dunkleman!!
I hope he stays on!
I like how FV, RC and team use GH history for creating new stories.
It’s fun to use history, it is fun stuff for the fans! (except for the grumpy people)

Perhaps Frisco (Jack Wagner) didn’t want to or couldn’t return, again..
I’m fine with it,, but then again the story has not ended..

harry

WOOH HOOH!

dawnhaze

I just hope they bring back Frisco so he can rescue Maxie and Lulu. Whether Dunk stays or not doesn’t bother me one way or the other. Maxie belongs with Spinelli and if he is gone then Nathan is the one. Maybe Frisco is going to show up on the trail of Harrell and finds Maxi has been kidnapped. More air time for Felicia and seeing Frisco is great in my books.

fanmale

Although the original Aztec treasure storyline in 1984-85 bored and annoyed me to the point that I stopped watching GH back then, I think it’s great that the show’s history is being utilized and that Levi turned out to be Peter Harrell.

anonymous

I didn’t know he’d be the son of Felicia’s ex, but I was sure he must’ve known who she was and about the Aztec treasure before Maxie met him.

ces

I can’t stand this creepy actor that plays Dunkleman. His teeth scare me and I hate that stupid hairdo and creepy face!! This storyline is lame — the ONLY thing that could save it for a minute is having Jack Wagner come back then and ONLY then would I care to watch this drivel.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I agree, ces. I can’t be very charitable when it comes to Levi. And, at the risk of sounding petty, I can’t see the attraction. He has a weird head…long or short, his hair does nothing to boost his looks.
Now, I love men…I even married one, lol. But, OMG, this guy has round eyes…in dire need of some eye makeup. His smile creeps me out…he has a fake tan, and as buff as he is, he’s short for a guy…( maybe because every male in my family is taaall) …with a body that looks like a sack of potatoes. As far as I am concerned, his bad-guy role makes him look even uglier. …by comparison, let’s take another long look at Ryan Paevey…..I’m breathless…lol
I have no clue what is going on. I hope I will soon catch on, however, that doesn’t mean I’m not intrigued. I can’t wait for Heather to make an appearance…I am sure she will shed some light on what’s been going on.

Ces
Ces

Your commentary was hilarious!
Yeahhh, he totally needs mascara or eye liner; something. The hair looks a tad better but still, I don’t see the attraction at all.
If they’re going to do an Aztec storyline then they should at least get Jack Wagner back on the show.

harry
harry

I love it when someone refers to another person’s hair style as a “hairdo.” It just makes me smile (in a good way).

Ces
Ces

lol!! 😉 He does look a wee bit better with shorter hair but he’s still creepy.

Rodd

I think it’s a great nod to Felicia and Mac’s past with a current twist.
So glad he’s not related to Maxie in amy way.

Li

Dumb! I’m tired of him and these stupid story lines. Too many characters and very little depth.
I love the Ava stuff, sonny and Carly are hot, maxi with Nathan -bring it on…
But Nina and her revenge is creepy for sure! Where is Robin? That was a fast little glimpse…

CeeCee
CeeCee

Shay, methinks thou art correct…lol. I’m sure you’re wise enough to realize I’m being silly and a wise@$$….but, Shay? He does really creep me out. I don’t exactly know what it is. Maybe, deep down, I desire him? Hah and lol.

Shay
Shay

Hey, you’re preaching to the choir here, CeeCee….I’ve never been a Sonny fan either! Awhile ago, Harry compared him to the character of Nick Tortelli and now every time “Don Corinthos” goes into maniacal mode, that’s who I see….too funny! But in all honesty, the only time I find MB to be entertaining is when he is intentionally comical, like when he went off his meds last year or was dealing with the ditzy Delia….he really does the lighter stuff very well. Shame it’s but once in a blue moon that the opportunity arises.

Fanny

This ended up being a LAME and wasteful storyline.
Give us CHEMISTRY, rev it up with Patrick & Sam, Carly & Sonny,
Nina & Franco, Julian & Alexis and finally give Ava a noteworthy love interest.
Bring back Faison, Anna needs some action scenes,

Mike
Mike

Yes, lets have Frisco Jones and Felicia work together and discover that Peter Harrell Jr. is keeping another secret, one that will make Anna go into shock when she discovers, after the aztec jewels come back that Peter Harrell Sr has a man hidden away and it turns out to be none other than Grant Putnam the insane double of Grant Andrews, we all remember what he did to Anna in the cabin in the late 80’s. She loved to see him again and Fluke turns out to be none other than David Gray who Luke thought he killed with that Sword Of Malkuth in 1982. He’s only after Sunny cause he’s Luke’s Friend. We never really did know for sure if David Gray died, the mesmerizing jerk that kidnapped Laura and somehow turned her over to the Cassadies, why we’ll never know wasn’t he obsessed with her, so why did her turn her over to The Cassadines. Bring the Cassadines back as well and when Luke gets out of that crazy house team him back up with Laura. Tracy’ isn’t Luke’s love, we all knew from watching General Hospital from 1979 to 1983 Luke loved no one but Laura and his brief fling with Holly was only to make him forget her. We need to have Luke & Laura back get that story line back, if you’re gonna dig into the 80’s lets get into David Gray and even bring Hutch back, not to mention that left handed boy. Luke would love to run into some of his old buddies again like David Grey, Holly’s father Basil if hes still alive, and of course Scotty Baldwin who is already in PC. Bill Ekert would be good too. Frisco returns and helps everyone get free from Grant Putman but just as old crazy Grant Putnam is revealed we got to see Grant Andrews wouldn’t that be a twist as well… Love these old storylines returning, just get Luke or Fluke involved cause we all know Luke Spencer saved Geeneral Hospital from cancellation in 1979.

Its nice to have current storylines based in classic ones. Maxie and lulu are luke and laura and frisco and felecias children. They should be written as the next generation of adventurers battling bad guys!

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH's Dr. Britt Westbourne

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
