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 »

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… 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.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

Courtesy/ABC

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Photo: ABC

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
