Wes Ramsey Wraps His Run as GH’s Peter August Shares: “Thank You For Taking the Journey with Me”

Photo: ABC

Since 2017, one of the most polarizing characters in soaps has been that of Henrik Faison AKA Peter August.  Through his reign of terror, Peter always seemed to get away, live to see another day, and not pay for any of his crimes. But that all came to an end on Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital.

Peter finally died after being hit in the head with a tire iron by Felicia (Kristina Wagner) after she found her daughter, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) staring down the barrel of the gun that Peter was holding on her!  After Felicia struck Peter in the head, he slid down an embankment to the ground below, and was barely conscious.  In the end, it was Anna (Finola Hughes) alone with Peter, who failed to call 911 and an ambulance to help save Peter, instead she quickened his death by not getting him immediate medical attention.

After Peter extends his hand to Anna, knowing that this is the end of his life, she holds on to it, until Peter dies. And this time, Peter died for real.  Following the airing of the episode, Wes Ramsey took to social media to say his farewell to the role and to thank the GH fans.

In a post on his Instagram, Wes expressed: “Thank you for taking the journey with me. To those who were kind & supportive, my heart has felt inspired by you. To my friends & family (& the fans everywhere), it has been an honor to give everything I had to this & I will never forget how fun it was to entertain you. To the cast & crew, thank you for welcoming me into your world & for giving me a chance to play with you each day. To the writers, producers & directors, thank you for trusting me with all we did together. It was one helluva ride… “#GH #peteraugust #actorslife #mydreamscametrue

Finola Hughes, who shared Ramsey’s final on-air scenes, expressed her thoughts on working with Wes, in a separate IG post: “You are Renaissance man, a consummate professional. Thank you @wes_ramsey for being a great scene partner. Thank you for bringing your ‘A’ game each and every day to #GH It’s been a pleasure exploring all the strange grey areas of a story where the villains were sometimes the victims, and the heroes weren’t always in the right. You trod some difficult terrain and carried it with grace and dignity. Your chilling poise as the character, and transparent wound made working opposite you fulfilling and always surprising. To everything the road ahead brings you, to the moon 🌙 xxx” @generalhospitalabc #GH

So, what did you think of Wes Ramsey’s parting words? Are you glad the Peter has finally met his maker? Comment below.  But first, watch the final moments in Peter’s life as Anna is there with him at the end.

Welcome back to Hell, Whiny Heiny!!

Cerberus was happy to get his favorite chew toy back.

Long overdue, probably the most toxic character in 59 years of GH history APPEARS to be gone. A body bag scene (a la Julian) would’ve been very appreciative here, but let’s just call it final. I do wish Wes a fantastic career far away from GH and that the character never reappears. The 30+ year friendship between Anna and Felicia was perfectly highlighted in their dual responsibility in ending Peter. Both were terrorized by Heinrik’s father at one time. Cesar Faison – now that’s a real villain! Other than Valentin (JPS must be shooting his other series) Wednesday’s episode featured… Read more »

I have to wish Mr. AUGUST had taken his journey long ago. He more than overstayed his welcome. I bet our friend Satan had the fires going full blast! I was overall disappointed in the “grand finale” that we waited so long for.It was almost amusing when Anna, Drew, Dante, etc. raided the house like gangbusters. After everything Peter had done and people he killed, two women overcame him with no problem. Such a huge letdown. I think the viewers deserved more than that!

I don’t trust General Hospital when it comes to THEIR favorite villains (not ours, theirs!) – they so often don’t stay dead, particularly Cesar Faison and at the moment Victor Cassadine. Here’s hoping Peter is another Shiloh and stays dead!!!!

It was beyond time for Peter to leave the canvas of the show. It is an enormous relief and now we can move on to other stories.

Perhaps Wes Ramsey might show up on one of the other three shows?

I like Wes Ramsey. I’ve always liked Ramsey. However, he was terribly miscast in an overly drawn out role. They easily could have cast someone like Trevor Donovan as Peter and it would’ve truly taken the role to new aspects we never got. And the more people bitched the more I know the character was pushed, and rightfully so. Am wishing him the best on his next chapter and I will be sure to follow him.

Hahaha!!! C’mon, GH fans…after all the despicable things Peter did and he “dies” by getting hit in the head by a tire iron? You know that ain’t happening. Give it 6 months or a year and we’ll see peter pop up out of nowhere and with an explanation of how he survived. A character like Peter would be dipped into a vat of acid to get his just desserts. Sorry, gang, but I’m not buying it.

Satan

A vat of acid isn’t exactly permanent either. Remember when Hope “died” on Days of Our Lives?? Not only did it not actually kill her, but they retconned it later to say she wasn’t even the one who fell in the acid… and the woman who did (Greta) even survived with some minor facial scarring.

I’ll do my best to keep Heiny in Hell this time. Cerberus won’t be happy if he escapes again, and not even the Devil wants a three headed Hellhound pissed off at me!

In some ways I will miss Peter as a character. I was always hoping his better angels would win…and he did have his good moments. But, alas, the dark side got the better of him in the end. So to Wes, great job in playing this complex, damaged person. And good luck for happier roles in the future.

Then there was the handholding goodbye at the end between Anna and Peter. OMG did it ever get to me. Beautifully done.

I am trusting you Michael! That this…”And this time, Peter died for real.”…is true! ~
This damn story went on WAAAY too long, and that creep had better never come back! ~
So far I’m ‘loving to hate’ Victor, so I can take him being the bad guy for a while.

One day a writer will write that Victor’s men picked up his dead body and one day we will see Peter in some human test tube frozen …right beside another human text tube with a frozen Luke…

The “Climax” was a let down. Some of the cast had boasted about how good this story was going to be as it wrapped! What are they supposed to say? But anyway, burning in a vat of acid would have been much better but GH, more than any other soap likes to revive the dead!! I dont mind it. It shakes up the characters and the viewers get excited or upset when someone rises from the ashes! Peter may or may not be dead. If he resurfaces, maybe by then Laura Wright will be dating a new guy! [Badadum!] Just… Read more »

I am SO PISSED OFF at the writers for the way they took Peter out! This is the second villain that the entire town of PC said they hated and wanted to see dead in recent years but the writers gave us an anti-climatic end to. (The first one being Shiloh.) They had a perfect set up for a great who-dunnit and wimped out with, though action packed, was a great big let-down. Why couldn’t Peter have vanished when Anna left him, only to show up a week later and then be shot or something like that? GH doesn’t do… Read more »

AAAWWW- I’m going to miss Peter–
No soap is worth a nickel without a dark evil Villain-
Now GH is Villian free-
Hope a new menacing threatening dark Villian will enter soon-
And-
When Peter went dark he should have been called Henrik-
Peter should have been dropped and returned to Henrik.

What? Villain free? We have the delicious and suavely evil, Victor Cassadine, the insidious psycho-chick-from hell, Esme, and Ryan is quietly pushing the reset button while gaining strength. . Peter was not needed, he became dead weight long ago. Moreover, Joss has turned into a mean girl, who treats her best friend Trina like her own personal accessory. No, we have too many villains.

Hi Harry 🙂 Victor isn’t scary–not like the Cassidines of old when they could make you quiver on the edge of your seat.. Even Valentin, the one that put the fear in Helena is nothing but a teddy bear- Mean and nasty is not an evil bad to the bone guy.. It was way way before my time– but my granny soap guru neighbor told me of Ray Garnder and Clyde– and I spent time with her watching them.. she luved showing them to me, I liked it- Now– they were 100% true evil villains– GH is free of true… Read more »

Victor is more of a charming villain. Ryan is always lurking though.

To dip into history and bring someone truly scary back, they need to find wherever Grant Putnam is locked up. Bring him back with another vicious looking dog. That’ll frighten the horses.

Satan
Guest

Well, the pretext for bringing Grant Putnam back is that his son has been working in the Quartermaine mansion in recent months…. Ever notice how much that Yuri guy looks like him?

Though Yuri has a Russian accent, so he’s more likely to be related to Grant’s KGB doppleganger, Grant Andrews… and that’s assuming he took Celia back home to raise his family in “mother Russia”

Steve
Guest
Steve

In normal times, I’d like your suggestion, but with what’s going on in the world right now, the show won’t touch on anything remotely Russian-related. This is similar to not addressing Covid as soaps traditionally offer an escapism from real world severities.

Satan
Guest

Yeah, I came up with my theory about Yuri long before Pooty decided to attack Ukraine, but thanks to that, it’s not a likely plot twist right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if Yuri disappeared without a trace, actually. Hell, Sonny’s bodyguards Max & Milo dropped off the planet, and they weren’t even from any “controversial” countries. Now he’s got that new guy who looks like Jack Webb from the old Dragnet show… on steroids.

You are right. I am not looking forward to Esme and whoever Ryan is to her when they gain momentum. I thought it was just me that thought Joss was over the top the other day, kind of disturbing in how much it bothered Trina, and it’s getting worse. Joss said it today, she learned from her mother how to handle people. I’d take advice from just about anyone but Carly.

Oh VIOLET, when Joss said to Cam how she learned how to defend her friends from Carly, I swear I could see poor Cam trying not to howl with laughter. Yeah, Carly is SO GOOD at interpersonal relationships…I’d emulate her, wouldn’t you? Yikes!

How long before Perer’s long lost twin shows up in town or Frank casts him as a different character

“Polarizing” isn’t the correct word. That means that there were viewers on both sides of the spectrum (poles), when in fact virtually everyone hated him.

But that doesn’t even matter: they purposely didn’t show his body being removed, so it’s only a matter of a month or so before he’s back, sad to say.

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!
