General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Wes Ramsey’s exit as Peter August has been confirmed, but for how long? Ramsey’s future at GH has seemingly been left open at this point, so he could be back down the road. Let’s look at what we know so far.
The new issue of SOD declares that Wes Ramsey is out at General Hospital, but what does that really mean? There have been plenty of characters who were confirmed as “out” that still wound up coming back.
The mag simply notes that Peter made a “memorable exit” and was declared dead by Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton), so that doesn’t confirm for a fact that Peter is dead-dead.
At the very least, it seems like we’ll see Peter again to explain how Finn and Elizabeth Baldwin (Rebecca Herbst) handled things.
Fans were left in the dark on what Finn and Liz did with Peter’s body, so some fake flashbacks may be necessary whether Peter’s truly deceased or not. There’s also the potential for Peter dreams or hauntings, so more appearances can’t be ruled out.
Of course, it’s also possible Peter wasn’t as dead as Elizabeth and Finn thought! There’s the potential for some confusion here considering the way everything played out.
As unsettled and frantic as they were, perhaps Liz and Finn missed a faint pulse. Peter easily could’ve regained consciousness and bolted – and in that case there’d still be some places to go with the story.
However, there’s another option as we’ve seen with Roger Howarth (Austin, ex-Franco Baldwin). Howarth’s exit as Franco was confirmed, but he ultimately showed up as a new character named Austin and still has a future in Port Charles.
That could be the case for Wes Ramsey as well depending on whether the show wants to offer him a new role.
Regardless, the show needs to provide more closure when it comes to Peter. Whether Peter stays dead or not, they need to reveal went down in the aftermath of his confrontation with Finn.
There are likely more Wes Ramsey scenes to come for the sake of an explanation, so stay tuned.
