It's long past time

General Hospital fans have been crying out for an end to Peter August (Wes Ramsey) and his reign of terror in Port Charles. For months the demise of Heinrick has been teased but nothing has been confirmed. Now TV Season & Spoiler has given a date of when Peter's downfall will begin. The countdown will start on Tuesday, February 22 and it could not come sooner. Peter has outsmarted everyone including Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessey). Victor believed his partner in crime had given him the instructions on how to reactivate Drew Cane (Cameron Mathison) but when he said "Activate" Drew laughed in his face. There is no shortage of people who desire to see August dead and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) has assembled a dream team to take him down. Drew and Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zampragna) and even Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagoner) have all volunteered to travel to Switzerland and bring Maxie home safe but Peter dead or alive.Fans love Wes Ramsey but are eager for his wicked character to get what he deserves.

General Hospital subltel clues

When Peter continued to show up on-screen General Hospital viewers assumed that Ramsey must have renewed his contract in November. Now it has been revealed that the actor was wrapping things up on a non-contract basis. Fans have been let down so many times that they may have missed some recent clues that Peter's time was almost over. Simultaneously, Valentin and Victor figured out Maxie Jones's (Kirsten Storms) secret, and Maxie and Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Seltzer) began coming clean to everyone. Once Peter kidnapped his daughter viewers should have realized that this storyline was not going to go on much longer. When Maxie decided to go with him and Peter agreed to leave their child behind some fans felt that they would not be on the run long term and they were correct. Peter who is usually calculating and one step ahead of everyone fell for his baby mama's act so easily and never suspected her of deceit. This was the biggest clue of all that things were winding down. Maxie quickly left Anna's phone number on a bathroom mirror using lipstick and immediately an unidentified woman made the call. Thsi was a signal that this nightmare must come be coming to an end sooner rather than late. The question now is how Peter will die and will it be an accident, self-defense, or murder? There have not yet been any leaks about exactly what will take place but it has been confirmed that August will die and not escape justice.

Peter's final fate

Some General Hospital viewers have been saying they would like to see Maxie end the life of the man who has ruined her life. Others, however, say she should not be the one to kill her daughter's father. Neither Anna nor Dominic would hesitate to shoot to kill if the situation arose but they might not get the opportunity. Victor is livid that Peter outsmarted him and he cannot gain access to Drew's memories. He is making plans and could send one of his operatives to Switzerland. Victor's man might end Peter and the others not have to lift a finger. Another possibility is that someone quite unexpected could make sure Peter does not live to wreak more havoc on Port Charles. Once it's all over GH viewers will be watching to see if Maxie and Austin Holt (Roger Howarth) will be able to build a relationship after all the deception that has been between them. Another concern is whether Britt feels any type of empathy for her half-brother once he is gone and if Anna has any sympathy for her nephew? Viewers are also hoping that Peter is really truly dead and that down the road he will not resurface with his supposed deceased mother Alex Merrit to gain revenge on Anna and Port Charles. Be on the lookout for updates related to how and when Peter August will die and be sure to tune in on February 18th when all the fun begins.
