If you tuned in to today’s episode of “General Hospital” you not only got to see the return of Kirsten Storms as Maxie Jones but you also received the answer to the long-held question of what happened to Peter August (Wes Ramsey): he’s alive! 

When intuitive viewers watched the July 27 episode of “GH” wherein Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes) opened the door to the freezer that Finn and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) had been keeping Peter’s corpse in after he had supposedly fallen down the stairs to his “death” in early June, they soon discovered that not only was Peter’s body missing but so was any trace of blood that would indicate he had been in there in the first place. In fact, we had even tweeted, “Who did NOT see this coming?” after the episode aired. We used the hashtag “Is He Alive?” Well, we don’t necessarily have a definitive answer yet as the episode faded to black just as we saw Ramsey’s face with his character shown following Maxie around after her visit with Nina (Cynthia Watros).

On the other hand, Ramsey does seem to confirm he’s back as Peter based on his response to fan chatter about his return to the daytime drama series.

In one tweet he said, “I’m humbled by all the positive responses from the fans today. ‘GH’ fans always give you their truth! Well, I promise to continue giving you everything I’ve got to keep you entertained.” He used the hashtags “GH” and “Get Ready” along with the “slightly smiling” emoji in his post.

In another, he posted a screengrab of himself from today’s episode with the caption, “& let the games…commence!” He used the “smiling with horns” emoji to express his anticipation. He further elaborated on that tweet with a link to his Instagram with the comment, “Well, well, well…let the games… commence.” He again used the “smiling with horns” emoji and used the hashtag “Peter August.” So, again, looks like Peter IS alive!

In a fourth tweet/Instagram post, he commented, “And on a lighter note (to help separate reality from make believe) here was my REAL day today…just a guy & his puppy, working out together.” He used the hashtags “I’m an actor” and “I’m not my character” to emphasize how fans sometimes have trouble separating reel life from real life.

Meanwhile, Ramsey’s real-life love, Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos), responded to Ramsey’s post with four consecutive “smiling face with heart-shaped eyes” emojis.

At this point, the only question left remaining is how in the world did a doctor and a nurse bungle the status of a person being dead or alive? They had just one job to do…

Either way, welcome back, Wes Ramsey! We’re here for all the drama your character is sure to bring!
