General Hospital spoilers from an inside source hint Peter August (Wes Ramsey) may not be who we think – and it’s not about who’s his mother. This stunning twist teased by the set insider is that his father is not who everyone thinks – and that leads to another stunner. Here is what the GH source says is brewing in the writer’s room about Peter August and how it could change everything at the ABC soap.
General Hospital Spoilers: Peter August Not Faison’s Son?
Part one of this GH stunner that leaked this week is that Cesar Faison (Anders Hove) did not father Peter August. Of course, there was a paternity test, but those aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on in Port Charles — as longtime watchers know. As of now, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) worries she might not be his mother.
General Hospital spoilers from the the leaker say it will come out that Anna Devane is his mama. But consider Peter August’s past on General Hospital. Faison always wanted a son. And he adores Anna. Remember when Faison asked Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) to wear the Anna mask and pretend to be her? His obsession knew no bounds.
So, if Faison had a son with Anna as the mother, why would he treat the child so badly? Knowing how Faison loved Anna, it seems like he’d treat the kid like gold. As a result, his neglect and abuse of Peter August only make sense if he is NOT his biological father. Also, Liesl hid her son Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) to keep Faison from molding him into his awful image – as General Hospital spoilers remind.
GH Spoilers: If Faison’s Not the Dad, Who Is?
Here’s part two of the leaked info from the General Hospital set. The source says that the writers are looking at Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) as Peter August’s father. With Robert as Peter’s father, then Faison’s behavior towards the kid makes so much more sense.
Faison always hated Robert Scorpio on GH. Not only as an enemy in the spy game, but because Robert had Anna Devane. Stealing Robert Scorpio’s son would be a huge victory for sicko Faison. But you can bet that the villain wouldn’t want to stare at Peter August every day if he was Robert Scorpio’s kid.
Sending Peter to boarding school and neglecting and punishing him is exactly how he would treat his enemy’s son. Given the timeline, it’s plausible for Robert to be Peter’s dad. But there’s one last reveal hinted by the General Hospital source.

General Hospital: Peter and Dr Robin Scorpio – Long Lost Twins?
The last piece of this GH puzzle leaking from behind the scenes is that Peter and Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) are twins. Their ages are right for this to align. And, if you think back to the testimony of the midwife that delivered Anna’s child, she said she gave birth to a girl. Perhaps Anna gave birth to both a girl and boy.
Also, remember that they introduced memory tampering of Anna and Alex into Peter August’s origin story. Plus, as Robin was introduced at age five not knowing Anna was her mother, there’s room to throw in a previously unknown twin brother. The source at General Hospital says this is what’s planned.
The quick summary of the spoilers leak is that Peter August and Robin Scorpio are twins and their parents are Robert Scorpio and Anna Devane. Not only that, but the inside source says this was the game plan all along and everything along the way has been misdirection building to an epic paternity reveal blindside.
GH Spoilers: Other Signs Peter Is Robert’s Kid
One more significant signal from General Hospital spoilers is the antagonistic relationship between Peter August and Robert Scorpio. You’ll recall that Robert never misses a chance to poke at Peter and make threats. He’s tried to jail him and clearly disdains him. As for Peter, he can’t stand the man who’s nipping at his heels.
On GH, they have gone this route with parent-child reveals before. First, they create bickering relationships and dislike, then they do the reveal, then there’s a slow road to bond. We’ve seen it unfold on the ABC soap with Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn).
GH Spoilers: Improbable Parent Plot Repeat
It also happened with Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) and Bobbie Spencer (Jacklyn Zeman). From the male perspective, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) were so deeply at odds that Sonny shot him before learning that was his son. So, this twist is right in GH‘s wheelhouse.
Expect a slow burn and a reveal that’s weeks away – possibly even deep into May sweep. And certainly there are fans that will not like the idea of Robin Scorpio gaining a twin brother — but you also have to admit she and Peter had an amicable visit the last time she was in Port Chuck.
There’s also the little fact that since Anna herself is a twin, there are higher odds of her giving birth to a twin. Peter August being Robert’s son also clears the way somewhat for his future romance with Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) as it takes away that brother-lover complication. Finally, check the front credits of any GH episode featuring Peter. You’ll notice that Peter is the first face you see. That means he’s no throw-away character.
