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

Courtesy/ABC

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

“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.

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.

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.

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?

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 Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
