When we hear the name Levi Dunkleman (Zachary Garred), it sends shivers down our spine. Levi has been the most hated character on General Hospital in recent history. Some love to hate him, and others just completely despise the lying, manipulating, psychotic, freak. Either way, it just goes to show that Zachary Garred has done an amazing job making everyone believe that he is a wretched slime ball.
Levi’s real name is Peter Harrell Jr., and he is the son of Felicia Jones’ (Kristina Wagner) ex-fiance Peter Harrell (Judson Scott). Levi’s father Peter set Levi out on this mission to destroy the Jones/Scorpio family. He targeted Felicia’s daughter, Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) when she was on her eat, pray, love quest to find herself after losing custody of her own daughter. Dunkleman had Maxie fooled into believing he was this peace making, yoga practicing, soul saving vegetarian. Almost everyone around Maxie could see through Levi, including her roommate Nathan West (Ryan Paevey), her two best friends, Dante and Lulu Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna and Emme Rylan), and her Uncle Mac Scorpio (John J. York).
After being duped into marrying Levi, and almost going through with it, Maxie, Lulu, Dante, and Nathan all fell victim to Levi and his father, Peter Harrell. They had Maxie and Nathan chained up to a wall as Stavros took over with Lulu and Dante to impregnate her with an embryo. Maxie was able to go free and search for help as Nathan stayed behind. She found herself in a hospital room which led to where all the drama unfolded. There in a hospital bed lay Peter Harrell himself, and in walks Levi. The two explained how they were going to kill her to take something precious away from Felicia, has Felicia took something precious from Peter in the past. Maxie’s Knight in Shining Armor appeared just in time and saved her before Peter could kill her with an Aztec sword. Ultimately, the tables turned and the joke was on Levi. Nathan shot his father, and as Levi was about to shoot Nathan, Maxie was behind him and charged, stabbing him in the back.
Ding Dong Dunkleman is DEAD… or is he? Do you think Maxie had what it takes to succeed in killing Levi? For many fans, it seems to good to be true to be rid of this character once and for all. If Dunkleman is dead, he will truly be missed as being an exceptional villain. Nothing has been confirmed on the departure of actor Zachary Garred from General Hospital. We will keep you updated with any news confirming or denying Garred leaving GH. For now, let’s just wait and see if Dunkleman is gone for good.
