Viewers have been wondering who Pikeman is since the name was first mentioned on GENERAL HOSPITAL. Eventually, it was revealed that a man going by the name of Mr. Brennan appeared to be the head of the Pikeman Security Group, but there were more surprises yet to be revealed!
The character of Brennan is being played by Charles Mesure, who made his debut in the Dec. 1, 2023, episode of GH. Born in England, the actor grew up in Australia and has appeared in episodes of HERCULES, XENA, LOST, BONES, and LAS VEGAS. Viewers might also recognize him from his roles as J.D. Pollack on CROSSING JORDAN, Kyle Hobbes on V, Ben Faulkner on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, Blackbeard on ONCE UPON A TIME, or The Beast on THE MAGICIANS. Although his run appeared to come to an end in the Dec. 19 episode, who knows what the future may hold…
John Brennan was first seen at Kelly’s Diner where he met Carly Spencer and told her he was in town on business and heard that they served the best burgers in Port Charles. While he was enjoying his meal, Brennan observed Carly offering a homeless man outside some food and when he paid his bill, gave her a little extra to give to him.
As Brennan prepared to leave Kelly’s, Carly hoped she’d see him again, and he guaranteed that she would. Then, Roman Hume arrived to report that they had a problem because Sonny Corinthos was refusing to ship more product for them.
The two men met in private where it was revealed that Brennan is currently the head of the WSB! He insisted that they couldn’t just kill Sonny and also needed to focus on Anna Devane. Brennan explained that Jamison Forsythe was meant to eliminate Anna and get the incriminating mission file but failed and they needed to recover the documents before it was too late.
When Hume reported that Dante Falconeri had recovered the file and brought it to Anna, Brennan ordered him to take care of the situation. When he returned to Kelly’s, he discovered that Carly had learned his true identity and when he went for her, she defended herself! Just then, Anna and Dante arrived with Interpol and Brennan was placed under arrest. As he was dragged off, he told Carly it was just bad timing, but is this really the last we’ll see of the villain?
Stay tuned to see if he ever pops up again!
