Wes Ramsey Returns to GH: “Well, Well, Well … Let the Games Commence”

Not only did Kirsten Storms (Maxie) make her return on Monday’s episode of General Hospital, so too did Wes Ramsey as the evil Peter August.

In story, after Maxie came to Nixon Falls to see Nina, (Cynthia Watros) and was whisked out of the Tan-O before she stumbled upon Sonny aka “Mike” (Maurice Benard), viewers see someone hiding in the shadows who is obviously following her.  Cue the reveal of a very much alive and well, Peter August, who Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) thought they disposed of, body and all, months ago.

But as GH fans suspected, Peter would pop up again and he did.

In an Instagram post following the reveal, Wes Ramsey shared: “Well, well, well…let the games… commence. 😈 #GH #peteraugust”

As for Kirsten Storms, this was her first on-screen episode back following being away from the show following brain surgery.

So, what did you think of the return of Peter August? What will happen next? Comment below.

While I really like Wes Ramsey and I knew he would be coming back I really hope this a short (until November sweeps) stay and they kill Peter off once and for all (how about a Murder on the Orient Express plot, where they all take turns killing him?). I know TPTB like Wes, so do I, but enough is enough – Peter has past his expiration date. Villains need to have a shelf life and then new villains need to come on. Of course on GH where the villains are the leads (Sonny, Carly and Jason) I can understand why TPTB are confused by this. I miss the days when soaps cared about and favored the heroes and heroines rather than the despicable characters that have taken over the lead roles – it is certainly one of the reasons for the decline of our beloved soaps.

One last story for Peter for a few more months and then kill him off once and for all and forever!

I cannot help but wonder why we can’t get Sean Kanan to reprise the role of AJ Quartermaine again? Surely Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten can do miles better with the role than Ron Carlivati ever did.

For soap characters (not counting those whose portayers passed IRL) there’s dead and then there’s dead-dead. AJ Quartermaine falls into the dead-dead category, meaning he died multiple times on screen, was already resurrected with a barely plausible RFD plot and the character was seen being escorted into the light by Emily.

Kanan was great in the role, and sadly didn’t get to do any scenes with Burton on AJ’s final run.

There’s a lot going in Monica’s house, but it’s extremely unlikely AJ will ever be resurrected again.

Never say never … Robert and Anna appeared as ghosts to Robin after their demises … then both turned up alive and well.

And let’s not forget that Edward Quartermaine had entire conversations with Lila as a ghost for months, before he turned up on an island somewhere.

Escorted into the light… yeah, we all know that’s not the direction AJ went!

I’d actually be willing to let AJ out of Hell if he would clear the record of who actually killed him the last time. He was actually recovering in the hospital from that single gunshot wound. Then suddenly goes into a cardiac arrest… as if somebody shot something into his IV. Be it a drug, or an air bubble, or whatever.

AJ already told me who it was, but I’ll let y’all guess for yourselves. Shouldn’t be that difficult, if you look at the circumstances that landed him in that hospital bed.

Maybe making Austin the Quartermaine bad sheep, who is a doctor on what is after all General HOSPITAL will begin a shift away from the way too long in the tooth preoccupation with the mob. I mean, who among us live with mobsters compared with who among as live (or can’t live) without doctors, nurses etc.? Especially with COVID 19 around. (GH did so much for AIDS when it came about but the writers seem deaf to COVID. Maybe if Steve Burton is away for a long time they’ll get on the COVID bandwagon…) Anyway, let’s see more Austin who are you Quartermaine. He can outperform Wes as the mercurial bad guy with one eye closed. Heck, he wrote the book on bad guys.

Please let’s hope Peter August doesn’t make it to Peter September.

That’s clever whynot. Sadly, he’s been around for too many Augusts already.

This is what happens when you put Poppy Bush in charge of Underworld Security. Goddamn it, I’m tired of all these fools escaping from Hell. Sorry about that, mortals!!

sorry, but this was no big surprise, for one the actor never gave an official goodbye anywhere and two, anyone who pays attention to the shows closing credits on Fridays (I do) would see his name week after week, so no big surprise here, and with Drew all of the sudden back from the dead, well to many variable. Strange that Drew turned up on screen and no one has mentioned him on screen, yet Hayden name you here almost everyday and nothing yet about Rebecca returning , I sure hope she’s coming back because Peter, and drew and who knows who else so far have.been less interesting to see back then it would be to see Hayden.

Funny thing is, I was more surprised by Kristen Storm’s appearance as Maxie so soon after surgery than I was Wes’ re-appearance as Peter. We all knew that one was coming. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

Who asked for this? Peter is a terrible character and it was a relief when we thought he was dead. But basically they needed to put the story on pause for a few months while Kirsten was away, and instead of having Peter disappear they “killed” him off and had a highly skilled doctor and decades-long nurse CONFIRM his death. How are they going to explain this idiotic writing?

The only good thing that can come from his return is a proper wrap-up to this storyline – namely, a who-dun-it murder that encompasses a majority of the cast. IMO it would be great if Heather Webber escapes from the asylum and kills Peter out of revenge for him killing Franco. Also, I’d really like to see Brooklyn finally tell Valentin the truth about Bailey/Louise because it’s heartbreaking watching him get attached to a baby that isn’t his.

I’m with you. I’d like to see Heather or Dr. Obrecht take Heinrik out.

Carrie,
Just have a little more patience. We know it will happen, we just don’t know by whose hand. Iam betting on Sonny for some reason.

On that note….. Did Dr. Oooblech ever MEET Psycho Heather??

It would seem like Nina is about to clue Liesel in on Heiny’s escape from Hell, and the fact that he’s currently making threats against her grandson. But of course, if Frau Ooblech were to make a visible move against Heiny, he would act on those threats, so that might keep her from acting.

Now on the other horn, if she was to pass this news on to Heather, who must be aware by now that Heiny is the one who killed her “beloved son”, Frodd, then Heather could escape from the nuthouse, send Heiny back to Hell, and be back in her padded cell before anybody realizes she’s missing. Hell knows she’s done it before.

The fact that Scotty Baldwin is now involved with Olbrecht may be an added incentive to convince Heather to take action.

Somebody send Heiny back to Hell already. Cerberus misses his favorite chew toy.

Jimmy,
You are so right. Heather killing off Peter, tit for tat I say. I also hope Peter has a good explanation of how he escaped that freezer and yes, every time I see Valentin with that baby, it’s heart breaking. Iam only glad we didn’t have to see his bad seed daughter Charlotte trying to do something to Papa’s new baby.

Ugh!

“Let the games commence”? You mean “make the torture continue!” It was SO nice not seeing that scrunched up face on my screen. Oh well, back to fast-forwarding.

I’m more concerned with the return of Kristen Storms. It seems like she just took leave. After brain surgery, I would have thought she would require more time off.
I hope she’s recovered and ready to work? I’m concerned she returned to soon? Thoughts to Kristen Storms. Stay well. I’m happy she’s back but I hope she’s well enough.

I hope she’s well enough too.

Jeremy and Carrie… Kristen looks good but like you am worried about her returning too soon as well.

Wes Ramsey is a great Faison 2.0. “Peter August” was boring but Henrick is something else. Wes Ramsey plays bad soooooo good. Great to see K. Storms back and healthy. Looks great. Feisty Maxie is back.

Love Wes Ramsey!!!

O.K Satan,
Who the HELL left the gates open,but I guess a snake like this one could slither out of anywhere. Hope you can get him back where he belongs.

Peter’s going to blackmail Nina, if she doesn’t kill him first.

Nina will become my favorite GH character ever if she just shoots and kills the s-o-b and saves us months of whispering, mustache twirling and unnecessary character propping.

I love Wes Ramsey. He’s a great addition To the show. Brings alot to the table with his acting. So happy he’s back on air!!

Iam afraid Leisel’s plan will backfire. She doesn’t know that Peter has already spotted Maxi in Nixon Falls and not off on some island. I think that Sept.17th will find everyone back in PC for one big explosion, with the wedding right in the middle.
Anyone get as sick as I did today seeing how close Carly and Jason were to our worst nightmare?

“Jarly” – Gag me with a spoon!!! I never thought I’d want Sonny back in PC, but I am on Carly Overload!!! I have never enjoyed LW as Carly, but my dislike has taken on gigantic proportions and morphed into pure hatred!!!

Yes, I hope Sonny fixes himself up some before he returns to P.C, gets out the old black shinola or whatever he uses on his hair and cleans up the grundgy beard, letting those dimples shine through. As W.R says above “let the games commence”. Who will be the most surprised?

What games? Peter is supposed to make me shake in my stilettos in fear!! Right? Not!!
Such bad acting, I’m speechless—-something which rarely happens.
Please let this guy go once and for all. The character contributes nothing but irritation.
I am not familiar with this actor—-never heard of him before GH—-Was he always this uninspiring? Maybe not. But, as Peter August? —-he does not make either the cut or the “case”—-he makes my skin crawl.

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Jophielle Love Talks On Violet’s Emotional Scenes with Finn, the Loss of Gregory, and Taylor Swift

During General Hospital’s recent episodes surrounding the death of Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison), who succumbed to complications from ALS, many in the cast delivered touching performances; including Jophielle Love (Violet).

In story, Violet learns of her grandfather’s passing when she comes home from school and her father, Finn (Michael Easton) sits her down to explain that Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Violet’s reaction was one of devastation and tears.

Michael Fairman TV caught with Jophielle on the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy Award ceremonies, where she was a nominee for Best Original Song for the song she co-wrote, “Shine.” The track was first heard back on a December 2023 episode of the ABC daytime drama series and is currently available on Spotify and other music streaming platforms.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”

Receiving her first Daytime Emmy nomination as songwriter was a thrill for Jophielle: “Well first of all, I was jumping up and down and Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) came and told me while I was on set. I was just so excited.”

Since pop superstar, Taylor Swift, started at a very young age as a singer and a songwriter, does Love see herself as a mini-Taylor? Jophielle emphatically stated, “I’m a mini Me“.  As to what she thinks of the record-setting Swift’s music, and if she likes her work. Love shared, “Yeah, yeah … so, so…”

What did you think of Jophielle’s performance during the passing of Gregory? And her comments here on Gregory Harrison, Michael Easton and Taylor Swift? Comment below.
