* DirtyCoward: Played straight initially. Deconstructed later on, while he still shirks towards dodgy or violent deals, his inner demons generally just make him a sympathetic LovableCoward.



* TookALevelInKindness: Early on, he was the abusive uncle of Jamie Mitchell. Then from then on, his comedic and loser side started to show.

* TheOtherDarrin: He been played no less that ''6'' different actors.
* OutOfFocus: When played by Thomas Law, it was very rare that Peter would get any notable story-lines compared to twin sister Lucy.

He's had more focus in his 2013 return though, becoming a character with a massive storyline in the [[spoiler: Who Killed Lucy Beale? plot]]

* ConvenienceMarriage: His first wife, way back in 1993, was a Romanian refugee named Nadia, who he only married so she could stay in the country (she had a boyfriend already, and Phil later fell in love with Kathy Beale). Predictably, it didn't work out and Nadia left for Germany a year later.

Only, he ends up living on the street for over a month and ends up in a homeless shelter. Once he's saved and get's back to his old life, within a week, a drug dealer from his past catches up with him and threatens to kill him if Jay doesn't give him interest on the money he owes.

** In his six years on the show Jay has lost his grandmother and mother, been abandoned by his grandfather, seen his father get brutally murdered, been placed in care, been beaten by his foster father, witnessed a murder and been emotionally blackmailed and forced to cover it up having clearly negative affects on his mental health and was left homeless, jobless and penniless when the truth came out. All before his 18th birthday.
