Peter August

Soap Opera management~~~please allow Peter and Maxie to be together. He’s trying so hard and I’m a little tired of Robert and Spinelli! And, now Dante is programmed to kill him. His character deserves a happy ending.

Exactly why do you think Peter deserves a happy ending? He is still doing bad things even as Maxie is telling everyone who will listen how much he has changed and what a wonderful person he is. It isn’t right to go through life hurting other people (or ending their life) and then get the white picket fence, the 3.5 children, and the family dog. He lost me when he ordered Drew’s plane taken down.

Completely agree!

I do like Liesl and want to see her vindicated, whilst keeping Peter and Maxie happily paired. However, I am doubtful that the writers are invested in men and women romantically paired, whilst also, being happy together.

I, too, would be very pleased if Peter and Maxie continued to be romantically paired. Especially seeing them progressing towards marriage.

Yet, from my perspective, the writers appear to be uninterested in serious, committed and long-lasting couples. As a result, Peter and Maxie’s future together may be in jeopardy.

My heart goes out for Maxie and Anna plus, Robert is wearing down my nerves.

My concerns are more for Maxie and Anna. I wasn’t sure that he had something to do with Drew’s plane. And, lastly, he’s trying to change. Robert is plucking my last nerve.

I agree…I wish Drew would come back…you know he didnt really die in that plane crash…then they would have nothing on him

We heard him ordering the plane to go down. We saw him colluding with Shiloh. We saw him ordering Andre’s death, but then he (the sharp shooter he is) shoot the assassin himself when he changed his mind. He and Shiloh were partners. Did you love Shiloh, too? Did you hate Drew?

I love Drew and Peter, but I hated Shiloh.

The actor who played Shiloh, did such a great job, as I think 100% of us hated him! I wonder how he is doing in his next acting gig…as if I saw him, i still wouldn’t like him…so unfair to the actor!

I absolutely adore Peter and Maxie belong together and they can become a strong force to reckon with
Everything is not as it seems

Peter is a fraud, if he loved Maxie, he wouldn’t keep doing bad things- I agree! It’s his fault Nathan was killed, and then he takes Nathan’s wife and kid. Ugh… and he’s responsible for Drew, almost Dr Andre and has been in cahoots with Shiloh. This guy is scum- Maxie deserves a better guy.

Unpopular opinion- but I’m actually enjoying Spinelli and Robert working together :slight_smile:

I am really liking Spinelli and Robert working together too. I love the fact that Robert has taken him under his wing and is teaching him the spy trade. I would love for him to get more sophisticated and less wimpy. He can keep his quirky language, but let him be more grownup. He is getting to be way too old for the wimp factor.

I can’t stand Peter and i don’t see how him and Maxie belong together when she is lying like crazy to her. If he is trying to change then why can’t he start by telling the truth instead of covering his tracks. This is the same reason why I can’t stand Valentine and Nina. You say you love the girl and yet you lie to her daily

:champagne::cocktail::champagne::cocktail:…In Valass (I don’t like him but he makes sense every now and then) defense…the only one that he truly loves…but he can never be with is Anna. And so I am not all that surprised that he could easily lie to Nina…As for Maxie…She deserves whatever Pain she gets…especially after Spinelli tried to tell her and she threatened him off the wedding…

Some people lie to loved ones trying to protect them. Val was not saving himself when he lied about Sasha being Nina’s daughter. Peter is saving himself from jail when he lies.

But I still love Peter. We love characters because they entertain us, not because they should be on high moral ground. Characters with high morals can be very boring.

I like his character but not with Maxi. For some reason I don’t like the two of them together. It doesn’t help like he is like an angel in her eyes

I can see a lot of similarities between Sonny and Peter. Both killed people in their “business”, lied to keep out of jail, but both love their families. But Sonny is forgiven for everything whereas Peter is not.

I won’t argue that Sonny has had people killed and done his fair share of dubious deeds but I can’t compare him to Peter. Sonny has lied to keep other family members from going to jail whereas Peter has lied to keep himself out of jail. Sonny was willing to go to prison for Claudia’s murder in order to protect Michael. He pled guilty to A.J.'s murder because he truly felt his family would be better off without him.

Sonny has ordered hits on other people who are in the same “business” as he is, namely other mobsters. Peter ordered the murder of Drew, Andre, & Franco because they could expose his lies which would result in his going to prison. When Morgan died Sonny readily took the blame even though it ultimately wasn’t his fault that Morgan just happened to steal a car that was rigged to explode. Peter has taken no blame whatsoever for his misdeeds and obviously hasn’t learned from them as well since he is still lying to Maxie.

Viewers are more apt to forgive Sonny because he shows remorse and great pain over his actions. We cannot forgive Peter because he shows no remorse whatsoever for his deeds.
