General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Peter August (Wes Ramsey) feels obsession and possession, not true love, for his fiancée Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms). Peter is bent on having everything his more privileged half-brother, the late Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) had, including his wife! General Hospital viewers will see Peter become desperate – would he kidnap Maxie, even though she is very pregnant with his baby, were she to change her mind about marrying him?
General Hospital Spoilers – The Walls Are Closing In Around Peter August
General Hospital viewers will remember that Peter has many crimes that he has committed that Maxie knows nothing about since coming to Port Charles. He did seem to be trying to change and become the man he knew she would want at first, until pressure started coming from the late Hank “Shiloh” Archer (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) about Peter’s past. Peter had downplayed his involvement in kidnapping Drew Cain (Billy Miller) out of Afghanistan and keeping Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) a drugged up prisoner as Patient Six in the Boronsky Clinic in Russia.
He claimed he did so to save Jason’s life because his father, Cesar Faison (Anders Hove) was going to kill Jason, but he really wanted to keep Jason so he could kill his father for him! But Shiloh was going to expose all Peter’s lies from back then, which led Peter to put out hits on Drew and on Andre Maddox (Anthony Montgomery). Shiloh had kidnapped Cameron Webber (William Lipton) and engaged Dr. Arthur Cabot (Time Winters) to transfer Drew’s pre-memory mapping memories into Cam. Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) had convinced Cabot to let him take Cam’s place and then as Andre was trying to remove Drew’s memories and get Franco’s back in the operating room, another hit man that Peter had hired, David Black (Lon Gowan) Peter changed his mind about the hit and took him out himself!
That, of course made Peter a hero. Now, with Franco’s brain tumor returning and his getting Drew’s memories back apparently as a side effect, Peter has to worry about being exposed again, therefore publishing the exposé on Franco, putting lots of targets on his back! That provides him a convenient cover for taking out Franco himself. However, Peter is not as protected as he thinks – Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) was exonerated for the crimes that he had framed her for and she’s programmed Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) to kill Peter and protect Franco! Peter no longer has the protection of Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) either. They’ve realized he has been betraying them with lies all along!
General Hospital Spoilers – Maxie Jones’ Eyes May Be Opened To What Peter August Really Is
Even though Maxie has thought that Peter hung the moon, she has not gotten any peace or sense of blessing from talking to her late husband Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) at his grave. It is the one thing that is holding her back from proceeding with her wedding to Peter and the one thing that is making her take a step back and think. Once Peter realizes that no one is believing his lies any more, and picks up on that Maxie is a little bit hesitant to go through with the marriage, it will likely put him over the edge! Obsession and possession frequently, if not always, go hand in hand with power and control.
When a controller – which Peter is – starts losing control of the situations and circumstances around him, he will control what he still can – which is Maxie! Of course, Peter should know that if Maxie doesn’t want to go, it will only be by kicking and screaming, and it will only be his baby that might keep him from becoming violent and hurting her! Then he’ll have to answer to Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) and he may not like the answer he receives!
