General Hospital viewers may be wondering just who Levi Dunkleman (Zachary Garred) is and what’s his history is on GH. Even though he was a villain, he served a higher purpose on the ABC sudser. That’s because he was the catalyst that matched Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) with Nathan West (Ryan Pavey). So, here’s a look back at crazy Levi.
General Hospital: How Levi Dunkleman Came to Port Charles
Years ago on GH, Maxie struggled with being apart from her daughter Georgie. So, she went on a spiritual journey to travel the world. While abroad, she met Australian activist Levi Dunkleman. But, back in Port Charles, Nathan sublet her apartment, but she had no idea who he was or that he was living in her place.
Then, on General Hospital, Levi Dunkleman seemed all cool and tree-hugging nice. He got Maxie to do volunteer work with him in the Philippines. Eventually, it sparked romance, recall GH spoilers. Plus, he swayed Maxie into turning vegan, and got her into yoga. Then, she and Levi Dunkleman popped back into Port Charles.
Maxie was stunned on General Hospital to find sexy Nathan living in her place. But, she was stubborn as always and she and Levi Dunkleman took up residence there too. Then, his true colors began to show on GH. And he was not the gentle, peace-loving soul Maxie thought. In fact, he was the polar opposite and a truly skeevy dude.
From Peace-Nik to Dastardly Villain on GH
General Hospital spoilers recall Levi Dunkleman convinced Maxie that Nathan was trying to have him deported. So, she was furious with Nathan and kicked him out on GH. Then, she offered to marry him to keep him in the country. However, on their wedding day, the truth came out. Nathan discovered Levi Dunkleman stole an Aztec necklace from Maxie.
It was her mother Felicia Jones’ (Kristina Wagner) necklace from way back in General Hospital’s past. Next, Levi pulled a gun on Nathan and tied him up on General Hospital. Then, he took off to go marry Maxie. But, Nathan crashed the wedding to arrest him, and then he confessed. Turns out he faked everything with Maxie to get the necklace.
Plus, he wasn’t Australian after all – Levi Dunkleman’s accent was fake too. Then, he held Maxie at gunpoint and took the jewelry while his accomplice took her bestie Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan). They ran off with women as their hostages to avoid going to prison. As they escaped, Levi shot Mac Scorpio (John J York) who is like a father to Maxie on GH.
Levi’s Violent Death on General Hospital
Once Levi Dunkleman escaped on GH, his partner in crime was revealed as Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis). When Victor showed up, he took Levi and the hostages to the Creighton-Clark Clinic on General Hospital. There, Levi met up with his father Peter Harrell (Judson Scott). Come to find out, the hippy weirdo was really Peter Harrell Jr.
When Felicia discovered his true identity, she was in shock because she was once engaged to Levi’s dad. Peter wanted Maxie dead to punish Felicia and Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner). Peter tried to stab Maxie with an Aztec dagger but Nathan shot and killed him, saving Maxie’s life, recalls General Hospital history.
Then, Levi tried to avenge his father’s death by killing Nathan but, Maxie stabbed him in the back on General Hospital, killing him. Levi Dunkleman was an awful creep but at least he brought Maxie and Nathan together. In the end, Levi Dunkleman and his dad are dead and Victor wound up exploded in the clinic blast.
