GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter Kidnaps Louise and Escapes, Timing Puts a Wrecking Ball to Carly & Sonny’s Marriage

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought it with some very juicy cliffhangers.  One again, Peter August (Wes Ramsey) lives to see another day, escapes the cops, and goes on the run with his daughter, Louise in tow!

This all goes down after Peter is being transported to Pentonville for his crimes.  But the van crashes, (when actually it was a set up – the tires were punctured). Mac  (John J. York) and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) are on the scene, and then they get shot at. Mac is severely injured, Dante not so much, but both are taken to GH.

Meanwhile, after Austin (Roger Howarth) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) kiss, he is very suspicious of Maxie’s intent because it’s now all out in the open that he knows what happened the night Louise was born and given to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) to take care of.

At the Q’s, Brook Lynn and Chase (Josh Swickard) are fighting their attraction to one another, then nearly giving in with a big kiss, when the phone rings for Chase. It’s Dante from the hospital telling him that Peter escaped.  When Chase relates this to Brook Lynn, she freaks and hightails it to the nursery and wouldn’t you know .. Bailey AKA Louise is gone!  The final shot of the episode is Peter with Louise telling her nothing will ever keep them separated again!

While all this is playing out, Sonny (Maurice Benard), decked in white tuxedo with new wedding bands for he and Carly (Laura Wright), is waiting for his wife to show up for his planned night with her at the Haunted Star.  Sonny wants to show Carly how much he loves her. Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) finds Sonny on the deck and is concerned for her dad, but reassures him that Carly will see the lengths he has gone too, in order to make a perfect evening for her. Sonny tells Kristina he just wants to make things right between them.

 

But thanks to Kristina’s interpretation of a call she places to Carly, she literally drives a wrecking ball into the marriage of her father and Carly.  An upset Kristina tells Carly, who is on the bridge talking with Drew (Cameron. Mathison), trying to determine if she should meet Sonny at the Haunted Star, that Sonny is waiting for her, and will be heartbroken if she doesn’t show up and to just meet him half way, and listen to what he has to say.  Carly says “She can’t do this right now.”

Drew, who is now the new sounding board for Carly, since Jason is “dead”, tells Carly that although she needs time and space from Sonny, and he understands she is justified in feeling that way, he believes this is all a cry for help from Sonny.  If she goes to meet him, she’s not caving in to what Sonny wants, but throwing him a lifeline.

Next, Kristina heads back to the boat to be there for Sonny and tells him Carly’s not coming to meet him and that she is not willing to meet him half-way.  Then, Kristina heads to Charlie’s where none other than Liesl (Kathleen Gati) overhears her on the phone telling someone that Sonny’s alone. Liesl next informs Nina (Cynthia Watros), who she had been talking with at the bar, and Nina decides to head to the Haunted Star.  Later, Nina shows up and Sonny sees her.

At the hospital, Felicia (Kristina Wagner) tells Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that things don’t look good for Mac, and he is headed into surgery and Austin tells Maxie that Peter is out there somewhere as he has escaped being transported to prison.

My dog Cerberus really misses his favorite chew toy. Somebody needs to send Whiny Heiny back to Hell NOW. And send Nina down with him, as she no longer serves any useful purpose. If you tell her Nelle is down here, she’ll probably go voluntarily.

Well. You Devil, you—looks like ( as I knew would happen) Sonny/Mike and Nina are hooking up. Fake Drew( his and Sam’s inaudible, weird voices so make me want to scream), and stomp-stomp Carly will also be a couple. Oh, Carly—you’re accusing Sonny of loving both you and Nina—-well, you’ve been doing the same throughout your entire marriage to mini-me. There has been a third person hanging in the shadows—Jason. He will return. Then what? A threesome again? You, Drew and Jason. ‘Round and ’round we go. Same boring circle; same boring story; different boring guy. I would think that… Read more »

I’d like to see a scene where Peter had to first go to Target to spend about $1000 bucks on baby gear for the baby he’s about to kidnap. His kid. Does he have a car seat? Diapers? Wipes? Bottles? (I’m assuming he can’t breastfeed! Lol!) Crib? Stroller? Pacifier? Baby clothes?
Of course not. Unless he stole the entire Q nursery along with the baby?

This isn’t a cliffhanger; they’re fun. This is an extension of pain. Peter outlasted his welcome, and meager acting ability, years ago. This is frustration on the highest level– Peter wins again! In a pandemic, I don’t need more depression, thank you. The only bright spot: Dante is front & center at yet another PC Police/WSB screw-up. Given Peter’s litany of crimes and his association with Mr. Cassadine, the National Guard should have been there. Of course, Chase and Brook Lynn will be blamed. More boredom! Even so, it’s better than manic Sonny’s Cheshire Cat grin. Ugh!

If Sonny was on his meds and reational, he could finf Peter and bring justice for Maxi and Louise. Nina should stoo listening to everyone oushing to Sonny and if he wants her he will reach out. Caryl. Should get off her high horse and just listen long enough to Sonny and stop punishing him for being Mike, at least Mike had amnesia and didn’t sleep with Nina. Caryl had just as many feelings for Jasin as Mike had for Nina.
Who really can’t see through Victor and Esme?

BLQ & Chase were at Jax’s beach house – not the Q mansion.

Why weren’t Mac or Dante wearing bulletproof vests?

Best part of episode was closing cast credits that no longer had Wes Ramsey listed in contract section. Hopefully that means Heinrik’s reign of ridiculousness is nearing its completion.

I believe that 99% of the audience is sick to death of Peter August and want him dead and gone forever. Why do TPTB keep on insisting on having him win all the time? Wes Ramsey really ought to have grown a mustache to twirl as he now resembles a silent film villain ready to tie a woman to railroad tracks. He has way past his expiration date. Personally I wish they would do a “Murder on the Orient Express” ending for Peter, with everyone taking turns killing him once and for all – and getting away with it with… Read more »

I’m done. The Peter story line is maddening. Can’t stand the character nor stand the the actor. He isn’t a good actor, he’s on the show because he’s Laura Wright’s boyfriend.
Tired of the whole keeping Sonny and Carly apart too.

Stopping watching the show until the get rid of the Peter character and get Sonny and Carly back together.

Both of these storylines need to be wrapped up pronto. They are dragging out both of these storylines way too long.

I LOVED Friday’s episode! And I’m probably one of the few who think Wes Ramsey has been wonderful as Peter. I am sick to death of the character but not Wes. My hope is that since it is SWEEPS, someone plugs Peter for good and we get a good old-fashioned who-dunnit out of this. It’s been way too long since any show has been able to produce a good one in which the writers knew from the beginning who the murderer was; one that had a beginning, middle and end. Too often in recent years, any attempt at a who-dunnit… Read more »

The only problem with a “who-dunnit” murder mystery with Whiny Heiny…. …is that nobody would care. Unless Laura wanted to know their identity so she could give them the key to the city (or whatever symbol of honor they hand out for heroic acts in Port Charles) I doubt Mac (as police commissioner) would have given a damn about Heiny’s “due process” even before he got shot, and even less so now. Mac has a history of not always being a “by the book” cop if the criminal’s vile enough. (see the Pierce Dorman story from 1997, for example). Don’t… Read more »

The nine lives of Peter August—the most irritating, unfavorable, skin-crawling, stomach-churning, unattractive, repulsive derelict on TV. There’s nothing endearing about him. At least, I got a kick out of Faison, as demented as he was….
Get rid of this guy already—-Stop the farce. Stop the agony. Please!!
(Aside–I must say, I am enjoying the baby. So cute!! No crying…..so even-tempered—playing with her little blankie.)

GH’s Michael E. Knight Chats On: Taking on the Role of Martin Grey, Friendship with James Patrick Stuart, and All My Children’s Tad

Last Thursday night during a livestream interview, General Hospital’s Michael E. Knight chatted with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel about returning to daytime in the role of legal eagle Martin Grey, and mixing it up with some of the most famous notables and actors that currently and historically have graced the screens on the ABC daytime drama series.

In case you missed it, the replay of the conversation with three-time Daytime Emmy winner is now available.  During the chat, Knight reveals what is has been like to play the on-screen half-brother of Genie Francis (Laura), if he enjoys the courtroom scenes in which Martin had to defend some of the most notorious in town including Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), and more.

Fans of GH are also enjoying the romantic pairing of Lucy Coe and Martin, pairing Knight with another soap vet, Lynn Herring.  Michael shares that it’s nice to see, and appreciates, the writers creating a fun relationship for a couple that is middle-aged instead of always seeing the younger sets escapades all of the time on daytime TV.

All My Children fans, of course, recall Michael’s memorable performances through the years as Tad Martin, where he became synonymous with Pine Valley.  After AMC came to its conclusion in 2011 on ABC and 2013 with Prospect Park, Knight finally returned to soaps in 2015 in the recurring role of Dr. Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless before joining the cast of GH in 2019.

During the interview, Michael shares behind the scenes stories of working with his on-screen parents, Mary Fickett (Ruth) and Ray MacDonnell (Joe), his enduring on-screen love story with Dixie (Cady McClain), and the heyday of AMC in story, with his on-screen sister, Jenny played by Kim Delaney. When Michael came to GH, viewers recall he actually got to share an inside moment with Kim and the fans, when Martin met Jackie Templeton, then played by Delaney.

During the livestream, Michael recalled several of Tad’s wives, and when one fan asked if Cady McClain might come to GH as Dixie, and that maybe she could be a woman from Martin’s past, Knight shared that it could be interesting.

In a surprise appearance later in the livestream, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, GH), who has an enduring friendship with Michael, and happened to be at Knight’s house, shared some memories of his time as Will Cortlandt on All My Children. Now decades later, things have come full-circle for the good friends as they share screen-time on General Hospital as Valentin and Martin.

Stuart is a Daytime Emmy nominee this year for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category at the upcoming 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and we took a moment to congratulate him on being acknowledged by his peers for the second year in a row.  Currently, James is pulling double duty shooting his Disney+ show, Villains of Valley View, while also taping GH.
