‘General Hospital’: 5 Reasons Robert and Peter Should be Father and Son

General Hospital spoilers suggest five reasons why Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) and Peter August (Wes Ramsey) should be father and son. Last we saw, their game of cat and mouse was getting dangerous on GH. So, it would solve a lot of problems (and create sudsy drama) if Peter August turns out to be Robert’s son on the ABC sudser.

#1 Peter August Needs a Good Father on General Hospital

GH fans know the reason Peter August acts the way he does is because Cesar Faison (Anders Hove) raised him cruelly. Of course, Peter saw how the psycho handled things and thought that was the way to be. Plus, Faison did his best to make Peter (then Henrik) like him. However, Peter August had good inside him.

Surely, that came from his mom Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) on General Hospital. Of course, his father hated that. But, Peter August is a grown man and knows right from wrong. And, he wants a good, normal life. But, he just can’t stop his Faison-like impulses to make it happen on GH. However, if it turns out Robert Scorpio is Peter’s biological dad, that may be a game-changer.

Then, Peter knows there is no evil biologically in him. So, it may prompt him to change. Of course, all he ever wanted were loving parents and a stable life. No doubt, it would be a shock if there’s a dad swap. But, Robert Scorpio as his father, might be just what Peter August needs to turn his life around on General Hospital.

#2 Anna Would Be Ecstatic on GH

Of course, if Robert Scorpio is Peter August’s bio dad on General Hospital, it will be a dream come true for Anna. It kills her that she shares a child with her stalker, Faison. But, it’d be a weight off her if Robert’s the bio-dad, not the baddie. Then, there are no ties to Faison left in her life on GH.

Plus, she’s sure to happy if Peter didn’t have maniac DNA – but was Robert Scorpio’s offspring on General Hospital. Of course, it will be comforting to know Peter’s a child of love – for both him and his mother. Also, Robert Scorpio should have no reason to hate Peter if he is not “Henrik.”

#3 Robert Scorpio May See Peter Differently – General Hospital Twist

If it comes out that Robert Scorpio is Peter’s daddy, the DA might see Anna’s boy in a new light on GH. Although it might take time, Robert may realize Peter August is not evil to his core. Of course, that doesn’t change that he’s done terrible things. But, Robert may see a chance for redemption. Then, the Peter-Robert angst might end on General Hospital.

Of course, a son and father can be at odds. But, if he is not Faison’s, it eliminates the reason Robert hates most on GH. Over time, Robert Scorpio may see Peter was Faison’s victim and embrace him as a son. Then, he could know a father’s love and strive to earn his respect on General Hospital.

#4 It May Save Robert’s Friendship with Anna on GH

Another reason for Peter August to emerge as Robert’s son on General Hospital is he and Anna shouldn’t be at odds anymore. Of course, they’ve been friends for years, even though their marriage failed. And, they co-parented Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) – as well as two spies could.

But, her faith in her son strained their amicable relationship on General Hospital. So, if Robert changes his tune, it’ll please Anna. Then, even though Peter is an adult now, they can enjoy a chance to be a real family – which is what Peter desperately wants on GH.

#5 It Might Spare Maxie Heartbreak on General Hospital

Another person to benefit if Peter August and Robert Scorpio are a father-son duo is Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms). Of course, he adores Maxie. And, he wants nothing more than to be a family with her and her children. But, Robert wants him away from her because she’s like a niece to him. And, he wants to protect her on General Hospital.

But, if Robert accepts Peter August and stops trying to take him down, Maxie may never know the truth. Of course, her ex Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) wants to destroy him. But, he might change his mind if he learns Robert is the villain’s father. If not, Robert will surely change it for him. Then, Maxie’s heart will be safe. Continue to watch GH when the new drama returns to see if Robert Scorpio is the father Peter August should’ve had on ABC daytime.
