In a surprise move, Wes Ramsey is back on the scene as Peter August. Although the dastardly character was deemed dead by two medical professionals, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst), it turns out he’s very much alive and back wreaking havoc.
Phoebe Kuhlman is portraying the real Chloe Jennings. Kimberly J. Brown played the imposter, who took over the nurse’s identity and ended up meeting her demise last June. Kuhlman’s character is being held in captivity with Cameron Mathison’s Drew Cane.
After being MIA for months, it looks like Tristan Rogers will soon be back on the scene as Robert Scorpio. The actor took to Twitter to alert fans that it looked “positive” that he’d be reprising his role.
Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) son Leo has been aged. The character, last played by Aaron Bradshaw, has been replaced by Easton Rocket Sweda.
