GENERAL HOSPITAL: Who Is Patient Six? Franco Confronts Betsy!


The intrigue is mounting for the return of Steve Burton next week on the upcoming September 19th episode of General Hospital. However, this week’s final two episodes on Thursday and Friday unraveled some clues, and more questions on how this will all play out leaving viewers with their own theories.

Ava (Maura West), who has gone to Russia to have have facial reconstruction by the acclaimed Dr. Boronsky, thank to a deal she cut with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), is waiting to see the doctor.  However, Larisa tells her she will have to wait some time and that she needs to confiscate her cell phone to due the delicate nature of the patients, as their work need to stay anonymous.

After Larisa leaves, Ava is shocked to see a man wearing a hoodie in a wheelchair, and with a mask on covering his face.  The man does not speak. When Ava tries to have a conversation with him, she mentions Port Charles. The patient seems to react and clench his fist.

Larisa freaks seeing Ava talking to the man they call “Patient Six”.  She informs Ava that the man suffered a horrific fate due to a violent crime, because he was shot and fell in the water, and has had some kind of psychotic break, and is likely beyond all help.  She also mentions that the patient comes from a wealthy family. This begs the questions:  Is this Jason ? Is this Nikolas? Could it be Morgan disfigured after the car bomb explosion who fell into the water? Is this all a red herring, and it’s someone else?


Meanwhile back in Port Charles. it’s Franco’s (Roger Howarth) art gallery exhibit opening and the show of his paintings, but his painting of two boys has certainly got Franco concerned, and he reveals he will not sell it if anyone wants to buy it.  Betsy Franco (the mother that raised Franco as “Bobby”) attends the gallery opening thrilled that Franco invited her, but Franco clearly has ulterior motives to get some answers to his childhood.

Later, Franco introduces Betsy to Elizabeth (Rebecca  Herbst).  He informs his mother that Liz is a nurse, which makes Betsy skittish. Alone with Betsy, Franco pulls out the photo of him as a young boy, next a young boy with blonde hair, who is Jason. Franco pointedly asks Betsy, why Jason is in this photo?  She promises him some long-awaited answers saying he deserves to know the truth.

At General Hospital, after Sam (Kelly Monaco) is having to make difficult decisions on Jason’s (Billy Miller) care, and whether to move him to a facility, or to her home, he moves his finger showing signs of life, but she does not see it.

So how will this all play itself out GH fans? Who do you think “Patient Six” is? What is the true story behind Franco and Jason;s childhoods, and the deception by Betsy? What will happen to the man right now believed to be Jason in the hospital? Share all your theories in the comment section below?

      Billy is going nowhere..

      thanks to Helena.. 0ooh and her curse on Sam is working quite well ..

      The one and only way to keep 2 Jasons is’

      the two Jason’s are twins..

      Steve will be Jason Stone Cold

      Billy will be Jason/Jake Quartermain..
      (( ever notice how Billy/Jason is much like Jason Quartermain was before his brain got wrecked ?))

      Franco is Jason Quartermaine’s brother or half brother therefore making Franco a Quartermain.

      Why back.. Heather at the Quartermaines, sitting at the desk had an envelope, which held a secret of Franco and the Q’s at that time when Franco was mixed in with Q’s..

        September 16, 2017 at 1:46 pm

        Franco, a main character, has never been connected to a GH family, this is when Fanco becomes a Quartermain therefore giving him roots..
        And he will from now on be in with Jason/Jake Quartermain and Stone cold Jason both will be family..
        My guess a dysfunctional family, but that is the true Quartermain’s lol .
        (building up the Q’s)

        Sounds good, su. I think anything is possible, plausible or not…..TPTB will ‘fix’ it to meet their needs.
        Jokingly, I even suggested triplets.
        You are right in saying that Franco needs a ‘home base’—-perhaps, Scotty is not enough to tie him to the ‘core’ of PC. Hey, one never knows….Scotty may turn out not to be his bio dad.
        Endless possibilies who his bio mom is: Heather? Susan? Monica? (Kidding).

      • Rebecca1

        September 17, 2017 at 7:44 am

        Hi Su…yes; this is what I’ve been saying for weeks…that Heather mentioned there was another Quartermaine out there. So, it’s either the new arrival of the old Jason which would make the new Jason/Jake a Q or Franco a Q or all three.

        I love Franco. I love how they’ve matured his personality. He’s kind, loving, introspective, (though self-doubting which makes him rather vulnerable and sweet) yet responsible, parental towards Liz’s boys (though we only see lil Jake)…yet he’s still sexy, hot, (and a tad twisted). I could do without the twisted, that “caged” event with Elizabeth’s rapist was kinda tough to watch. And I love how they cleaned up the scruff. Roger looks great! But I digress…I think he’s a Q (which is what he thought from the beginning but they talked him out of it). We’ll soon find out.

      • AJQ

        September 17, 2017 at 2:31 pm

        Franco will not be a Quartermaine. That was tried and failed. Frank & RC brought Roger back as Franco to be a Q and take over the Q’s and ELQ with Ava. That was the first time FV and RC’s disrespect to the show and how totally clueless they were to what the GH fan base would accept was on display.

        Weeks of Franco’s obnoxious self squatting in the Q mansion doing arrogant Todd schtick didn’t sit well and he was given the boot. That’s why they latched him on to Scotty and Heather.

        Fans coming back for Burton, long time GH viewers who left because of nonsense like Franco and Frank’s Howarth agenda will not be up for Franco Q Part Deux. It will be bad enough that Franco has to be part of the story, part of the backstory in order to give the useless waste of space something to do when he’s not making schmoopie with Liz and hanging around her kid.

        September 17, 2017 at 3:27 pm

        hey! Rebecca & Celia ..

        I think the new co-head writer Chris has input in this story..
        Something tells me the reveal will not live up to the hype it’s getting..
        I have hopes for this story, but no hope for Shelly lol, so I’m not sure the story will be explosive as billed .
        I wish RC was writing it ..

        Anyways, there will be no Nikolas or Morgan, there has been no reacts of them.
        I would love if the Cassidine family returned. Helena will return, she is involved it is her curse.
        haahaa Sam is not with ‘her’ Jason (switcheroo) good work Helena, gotta love her!

        This is a 9 month story and onward, so it will be a long ride.
        We can only hope the story won’t fail after 4 months or less.
        It will be interesting in many ways, for sure.

        LOVE that my Franco has his story !!! He will be front & center..
        Most likely Valentin will be involved so both my loves will be together, now that I like 😉
        I’m ready for some bad boys strutting their bad selves ..

      • Celia

        September 17, 2017 at 8:46 pm

        You may be right about the hype being for naught, su. It’s like TPTB are now scrambling …..too much too soon; as I said previously. The introduction of more characters surrounding this storyline is going from ‘the road less traveled’ to a busy highway….and when that happens , the excitement abates, at least for moi.
        As yourself, I’ve said that Helena is up to her well-coiffed head in this.
        Oh, and yes, Heather….and now, that other woman ( the stepmom), as well.
        I like Franco, but not as much as I love Valentin, LOL. Hey, maybe they’re related. C’est possible, no?
        Ok…out of context. The gray, scraggly, so puke-worthy stubble on both Sonny’s and Franco’s faces needs to be mowed. Ha!!

      • su0000

        September 17, 2017 at 10:50 pm

        hi Celia ..
        hey now! I made dibs on Valentin first, he’s mine lol
        Hmm we could fight it out but I have to warn you I excelled in hand to hand combat, so you might as well just give him up now ahaaa!!
        gawd! Valentin is so fine.. 0ohh heck I’ll share 🙂

        yes, as you/we said Helena is chin deep in this and I really love that !!!
        I am looking forward to having Heather involved in it with Franco..

        ohh the gray stubble is supposed to be manly stuff, we could send them some razors..
        Roger and Patrick are atop the sexy heap..

        The two Jason hype has been overkill and that says it will not be as electrifying as said to be ( a let down) but still holds excitement so all is good..

        @Celia… But I’m pretty sure that doesn’t keep you from watching the show as a whole, nor does that probably keep you from “following” it through the internet and social media.

    Patient Six is Steve Burton. If he isn’t Jason Morgan Frank and company will chalk up another huge fail after many. But I wouldn’t put it past him to come up with something convoluted and to destroy GH history.

    There’s some fan fiction out there that SB is the real Jason Q and BM is Jason M who was switched 22 years ago. That would destroy the entire history of the character, the history of GH and I wouldn’t put it past Frank to do it and we know that he and the writers get most of their ideas from fans on social media posts.

    Bad enough Franco will be all over this. How much will determine how many fans coming back for Burton will tune out.

    • Celia

      September 16, 2017 at 5:05 pm

      Hi, AJQ,
      I do not think patient six is Burton. As I have indicated on the previous Burton site, I thought about that, but patient six looks too tall to be Burton.
      It is most likely Nik, but portrayed by another actor….same reason….both Burton and Tyler have a stockier, shorter frame. The legs on Paient six has legs ‘yay’ long.
      I, also, suggested that the blood drops on the ancestory ‘framework’ fell on Nikolas (name) with a Russian surname. Is it Nikolas or an ancestor/relative? I brought these points up as soon as I saw the masked man. Did Valentin orchestrate this entire scenario? Was it his intention all along to send Ava there? Too much of a coincidence? Are we being railroaded?
      Another thought is that it could be Morgan….fits Bryan Craig’s body-type….or it could be another actor, altogether.
      I agree with your reasoning as who is whom……. I do believe that Franco and Burton’s Jason are the twins. But, where does the other Jason ( Billy) fit into all this? Helena or Heather, or Susan, or all three? Then again, I am a novice in all this.
      Franco’s sudden involvement with this storyline confuses me. Are TPTB that desperate to keep Franco relevant ?? Does his adoptive mother know “everything”? Will we be told?
      I was very much interested in the story, but now?….peripherally.
      Introducing this new character, and Lord knows who else makes the story too complex for my interest to be held captive; or to whet my appetite. It is waning as I type.
      ‘They’ need to keep the plot in focus….too much Burton; too much Franco; too much Corinthos will suffocate the viewer….as you say, “how many fans coming back for Burton will tune out.”

      • Jimh

        September 17, 2017 at 1:27 pm

        Too bad the mask person didnt turn out to be AJ…Ava would be in shock!…then he could have revenge on her for leading Sonny to believe he killed Connie and getting shot but i doubt they would go there-maybe?

      • Celia

        September 17, 2017 at 4:33 pm

        He still may, Jimmy…..never know. I know I sound like a broken record, but MrMask looks long and lean. AJ wasn’t either…..but, TPTB could change the actor posing as whomever at the last minute.

      • Shay

        September 18, 2017 at 1:13 am

        @CeeCee….Whilst I am finding all of this scintillating subjecture to be totally tantalizing, I’m still of the opinion that we will be treated to a “Double Q” version of Jason twins and that Franco will remain the “odd man out” as always…at least, I hope so! The previous attempts to legitimize this mirthful malcontent’s place on the canvas as the illegitimate offspring of Port Charles pariahs Heather and Scotty was bad enough, but God help us if he is revealed as yet another Quartermaine heir gone lost and found….it really would beggar belief. I would be just as content to leave his birth status such as it is and focus upon the more important links the Burton character will have to Billy Miller’s Jason…that alone will suffice for the immediate future…As for the “masked man?” I would be disappointed if he were revealed to be Burton….rather we should leave that mystery for later revelations….be it RealNik, Valentin, another missing Cassadine or even a past GH villain. As long as we are not treated to Morgan 2.0, I shall be a happy camper!

      • Timmm

        September 18, 2017 at 3:55 am

        Patient 6 is Nicholas. All this is is a curve ball to Steve’s return. IF they decide to bring Nick back down the road, Ava will have remembered this 6 character, go back to the hospital where she had the surgery, he will be gone, a new story will be written for her quest to find patient 6 and she will eventually discover it is Nicholas RIGHT after she marries Griffin!

      • Jimh

        September 18, 2017 at 10:17 am

        I wonder if the mask man is Billy Miller…there was a switch at the hospital with the other Jason but with Billy Millers face again…,and then when the mask comes off it will be Steve Burton’s Jason…im old and confused and now im even more confused!!!-lol

      • Celia

        September 18, 2017 at 10:58 am

        Very interesting spin, T. Then again, what you suggest is in true soapy spirit…..plot rife with drama. I like it.

      • Celia

        September 18, 2017 at 2:02 pm

        You’re cracking me up, Jimmy. Besides, I’m just as confused….age has nothing to do with it.
        And, you’re not old—it’s just a state of mind. You’re the best just the way you are!!

      • Francesca Bruno

        September 19, 2017 at 5:35 am

        There is a possibility the masked man will be switched daily. Body shape will probably not make a difference.

        I think it’s Nikolas too.

      • Celia

        September 19, 2017 at 3:10 pm

        Everyone has great ideas….all of them are soon feasible, Shaybelle.
        We did speak of Valentin’s true identity at length, and you are most likely right.
        As far as Franco; the entire storyline, as is, is bizarre. I do hope it will all make sense sooner than later. And, not another Fluke flop.
        I’m still of a mind that Scotty knows a lot….methinks he doth protest too much.
        I am waiting to see how TPTB will incorporate Franco, Jason and Jason…..and, possibly Nik?….. Or is this a separate story?
        As usual, I do not trust they know what the story is….let’s just say they have a rough draft? A skeleton story? Where’s the meat!!!!!???? LOL.

    • Max Daddee

      September 17, 2017 at 9:31 am

      I think Patient Six is Nicolas. Right after a scene showing Six the camera went to a shot of the framed chart of the family tree with Nicolas’ name. Eva will discover he is Nicolas and she’ll be key in his recovery and return home. All this will validate Valentin’s periodic statement of how there’s no proof that Nicolas actually died.

      Perhaps Franco is one of the triplets – Billy/Jason, Steve/Jason and Franco is triplet number three. This could help fill up the empty seats at the Quartermain dinner table these days. Tracy’s gone, bad judgment resulted in letting Robert Palmer Watkins gone…

      • Celia

        September 17, 2017 at 2:48 pm

        Absolutely, Max. I must have said ( ever so much) Valentin knew where Nikolas was until I was blue in the face. Thus, his constant cryptic remarks and white-washed denials. I think, both men worked together in a concerted effort to mask ( pardon the pun) the truth.
        LOL. Max….are you saying the triplets idea I mentioned a few days ago, jokingly, could be a reality? That’s rich!!

      • Trudy

        September 17, 2017 at 9:36 pm

        I think it’s Nik, too. It’s “The Man in the Iron Mask,” who was the real king of France, while his younger twin brother sat on the throne. I’m hoping that it’s the real Nik, you know, the Prince Cassadine who was a good guy, not the one who married Hayden, ripped off the Qs, etc.

        Only downside to this: a re-cast Nik. Upside: Nik alive redeems Valentin to some extent, making him a viable romantic lead for the woman who is obsessed with him – the Goddess Anna DeVane.

      • Timmm

        September 18, 2017 at 3:59 am

        RPW was a good guy but the character needed to be stronger. I hope Dillon returns in a few years older, ready to buddy up with Ned and take back the Q business. Thats the problem with Michael, he is too young and is not believable as a corporate raider. He looks more like an assistant manager at “Toys-r-Us!”

    • Rhonda

      September 17, 2017 at 11:36 am

      I think the Nikolas hints are red herrings.
      It’s got to be Jason.
      Both men were shot and fell in the water so it could be both.
      It also occurred to me that it could be Morgan, however, Morgan was not shot and did not fall in the water.

      • Tomas Torquemada

        September 17, 2017 at 3:40 pm

        I want it to be Nik so bad. But I think you are right. They won’t bring Nik back at the same time we suffer from the tedium of two Jasons

    September 16, 2017 at 10:13 am

    Something tells me this is going to be Nikolas. We have waited a long time to get this resolved as to what became of the character. Would be the only way to keep Valentin on the canvas.

      Since Tyler is not available, I would love to have Nick Stabile reprise the role of Nik!
      I really think Nikolas is an important part of this story and needs to return.

      • jeanine girard

        September 17, 2017 at 10:51 am

        Oh my goodness! Me, too! I thought Nick Stabile was wonderful as a temporary recast last year. So much potential storyline all around & maybe finally someone suitable for Ava. NS just brought the charisma and chemistry from Day 1. Plus real acting talent and not to mention he is just gorgeous! I’ll buy into any wacky storyline they can come up with to make this happen, LOL!

      • Celia

        September 17, 2017 at 2:51 pm

        So would I, SZima. But, from the looks of ‘MrMask’, I think he’s too tall to be Stabile; whom I adore.

      • SZima

        September 17, 2017 at 4:24 pm

        Celia, Nick Stabile is 6′ tall, so it could be him, but I’m sure it’s not. Darn!

      • Grant Putnam

        September 17, 2017 at 5:50 pm

        Well it just might be Nikolas after all, played by Steve Burton. Valentin wanting to save his ‘inheritance’ to the Cassadine empire by finally reviving Nik unto Helena’s endgame of giving him the face of olJason just to mess with Jasam, Friz, Laura and Scotty….for the hell of it! Yeah?

      • Boop

        September 17, 2017 at 6:52 pm

        September 17, 2017 at 8:52 pm

        Thanks, SZima. I didn’t know Stabile was that tall. In that case, yes, I take it back. I have prayed and hoped and wished for Stabile to return. Unlike most, I am not a Tyler fan.
        Also NS and Maura West had an exceptionally well-oiled connection.

    • Tivette

      September 16, 2017 at 1:12 pm

      I agree that it’s Nicolas…blood dripped on his name when Valentine cut his finger on the broken glass on the family tree…then patient 6 was said to have been shot and fell into water…it all seems to point to Nicolas to me. The timing is perfect with Ava at the clinic, too. Maybe she’ll help patient 6 come out of his condition in some way. Besides, Ava and Nicolas had a real connection…sure hope Nicolas is played by the last actor Stabile as they really had some hot chemistry. Here’s to hoping!

    September 16, 2017 at 10:39 am

    Did you notice Monica Q finally confronted gangster Sonny about murdering AJ? It happened on Friday’s show. Short but way overdue. Monica said to Sonny:

    “…if Jason dies, that means you have the blood of BOTH my sons on your hands.”

    • Celia

      September 17, 2017 at 2:55 pm

      Yes, Chardsy. I derived complete and utter satisfaction from that statement.
      Yet, afterwards, the scene was soooo twisted in such a way that Sonny was the offended party.
      Makes me sick.

      • Celia

        September 22, 2017 at 3:57 pm

        Sure there was bad-blood between Sonny and AJ. However, it takes a cold-blooded viper to kill another human being without the blink of an eye, or remorse.
        Hatred and “having a bone to pick” with someone is no excuse for murder.
        Regardless of AJ’s habitual drinking ( wasn’t he trying to be a better person? Son to Monica and father to Michael?), I liked him……
        ….you may think that alcohol was leading him closer to death’s door…..but, it wasn’t alcohol that killed him, was it? It was Sonny’s mini-me, cowardly hand.
        Sonny should come down his high-horse. He is not God–both he and Carly should stop acting sooo judgmental and come “faccia a faccia” with their twisted mortal selves.

      • Celia

        September 26, 2017 at 5:58 pm

        Hi, there, Shaybelle,
        I truly was not aware that other soaps, besides GH, had used the Toxoplasmosis “dramatic” ailment…LOL. can’t think of any.
        I must admit I had help….my husband said it first ( the keen eye of a doctor) within a few seconds of watching GH ( Sam while hallucinating) with me at night.
        You immediately said the same thing. I repeat, it is no joke. While the mother’s health is at risk; the health of the fetus is ten times worse.
        So many congenital problems, and/or death.
        See that? Although, the story is sad and, at times, gruesome, I do appreciate when TPTB indulge us with the truths of reality.
        But, this twins, MrMask, Franco and Drew mish-mash is dizzying. I’m not quite sure how I feel. It could be intriquing if told right—-alas, the age thing is already bothering me. I can’t swallow Jason 1 and 2 as twins.
        That’s just me, I guess.
        I know it’s done all the time….age discrepancy….such as Julian and Alexis. But, at least, Nancy looks younger than her age. Burton looks his age, as does Miller. Ten years apart, I believe.
        What say you? Who are the twins?

      • Shay

        September 28, 2017 at 6:47 am

        Hey there, CeeCeeGirl….Just found your reply! As I’ve already stated on another GH thread, I’ve no great problem with the age discrepancy thing between Billy and Steve, since the extensive reconstructive surgery “Jake” underwent can easily account for his more youthful countenance…there is still enough of a similarity in physical stature and other characteristics that those two share that make their “twinning” storyline quite plausible for me. On the other hand, not so much with Burton and RoHo, despite their more mutually-approximate years…the distasteful aspect of that possibility just makes me really not want to go there with these two characters. (If you had ever seen Franco 1.0, you would understand why…..) Plus, since I like the notion of this “Baldwin-based Bantling Boy” still being the misfit progeny of Heather and Scotty, I can easily roll with the “Two Jasons” as twins and once again, leaving out this oddball square peg as the societal pariah he apparently shall remain, contrary to the the red herring that he could have been someone other than his previously assumed identity. As for the much-discussed “toxoplasmosis,” I cannot think of the specific instances in which this disease has been employed on other soaps, save with Heather, of course, but I know I came across it at least a few times before, since it’s the reason I am familiar with the malady. (I’ve never known anyone in real life who has experienced this illness…) However, I am aware that Heather and her unborn son, Steven Larrrrrssss, almost died from its effects, so it is quite a serious thing, for sure! You are most certainly not overstating the ferocious nature of this infection!…Ick, the whole idea makes me sick! (No pun intended!)

      I always said that Monica didn’t show any anger with Sonny for killing A.J. I don’t know too many people who play nice with someone who kills their child or anyone they love. I saw the scene and want to see some of that anger from Michael who overlooked what Sonny did too soon. Ron had him retaliating ; however, it fizzled out.

      • Celia

        September 17, 2017 at 8:58 pm

        I think too many fans observed Monica’s lack of anger and resentment towards Sonny and complained about it, Boop. I know I am one of them, among others.
        Maybe, the story-makers listened, hence Monica’s stinging words to Sonny—-more power to her…and let’s see more of the same.

      • Shay

        September 18, 2017 at 12:58 am

        Yes, CeeCeeGirl! That was a very satisfying moment when Monica finally unleashed her far-too-belated wrath at the “Diminutive Don.” (And I don’t just mean in physical stature, but moral standing, as well!) More of the same is definitely appropriate and suitably called for…dare we hope that this is simply the first verbal volley in the foreshadowed battle for both old and nuJason’s souls when the Corinthos crowd try to get their all-too familiar hooks into these imagined Q Bros????

        I just “love” how some just don’t truly “get” why Sonny killed AJ. Back in 2003, Sonny managed to catch onto AJ’s deep rooted truth… As we know, AJ really was a “bad” alcoholic…

        September 18, 2017 at 5:42 am

        It was THEN that Sonny ended up looking AJ right in the eyes, and saying to him… You really DO wanna die, don’t ya….?” I think he was also underhandedly trying to bring up the point that practically more than half of the time that AJ was alive, he was pretty much drinking himself more closer and closer to “death’s Door”.

      Hi Charday – you could have heard ’round the world, fans cheering aloud.

      if only it would have remained that way… scene over.. so we could all chew on

      soon after… Monica – apologizes – It made me sick. all this kowtowing, bending of will… Sonny is ruining GH.

      another thing that really gets my goat, Michael and Nelle.. “discussing” life at large.. and telling Nelle.. 2 three times over, how much he loves and respects HIS DAD… Sonny. Nelle, innocently asking would he have joined the mob.. him being practical and all.

      how whimsical and “flattering” for Michael right ? give me an effin break… CHEERS to the dullest couple… evah!

      prop: Nelle is the last character that must get out of the Corinthos pie. they stink

      ie: back to Monica… the show… this is dire isn’t it? they could have let that scene alone.. but they ruined it to prop Sonny. Monica would never have “truly” apologized.

      another thing : Sam… seems she isn’t cured of Toxoplasmosis.. or whatever continues to ail and plague us with her presence. she lights in to Carly, FOR NOTHING , just to bring more weight to her dead toxo story. just to “heighten” the dullard couple Jason and Sam. alas, once again Carly has the last laugh… telling Sam… as Alexis overhears.. why did I cover for you ? it was so stupid… as Sam blurts out… ” I love you too”

      go figure

      • Rebecca1

        September 20, 2017 at 1:06 pm

        Hey Patrick…

        First of all…toxoplasmosis doesn’t cause the symptoms Sam had. I don’t know where the writers got that from. From what I’ve read it rarely causes symptoms and when it does it’s usually mild; (though it could be fatal to the baby). I didn’t see anything about hallucinations. Be that as it may…in GH world Sam was hallucinating because of said condition but I think:

        everything that Sam has said so far is actually long overdue.

        While under her hallucinatory state she feared Sonny would bring Jason back to work for him and Jason would be harmed. Well, she was right. Sonny (and Carly) for all their love for Jason, put him in harm’s way their entire friendship. Each time Jason’s life was in jeopardy it was protecting Sonny and/or Carly. (no matter whether THIS Jason is Jason or not). So, what she expressed in her ill state was actually long overdue.

        As for what she said to Carly, Sam was right again. Carly was always very possessive over Jason; there was a time before Sonny that she was in love with him. Carly was very demanding of Jason’s time and attention when played by Steve Burton. She DID resent Sam and Elizabeth before her…any woman who took Jason’s attention away from her. Even when Jason and Sam were notably in love…Sam always was made to feel like the third wheel by Carly. And, in my opinion, Jason didn’t do enough to put Carly in her place.

        I like Sam. What I DON’T like is that like Monica, who rightly lit into Sonny, she apologized to Carly. I know they’re friends now and Carly’s been good to her this round so I kinda get it…but Sam was in no way wrong. If the “real” Jason returns and Carly feels that connection with him again I wouldn’t be surprised if Sam was made to feel superfluous again.

        And, I’d really like Sam to appreciate Julian. He really does love his kids. If Michael (unfortunately) forgave Sonny for AJ (ugh) then the least the writers can do is have Sam and the missing-in-action Lucas forgive Julian.

      • Celia

        September 23, 2017 at 11:25 am

        I am just surprised Scout was not infected, Patrick.
        I do not think Toxoplasmosis is recurrent, unless the person comes in contact with the parasite again. That gully was infested with germs….that’s what did it—-specifically, cat feces.
        But, I have, also, heard that some people were infected just walking on the beach by stepping on broken shells.
        As per: TOXOPLASMA GONDII AND SCHIZOPHRENIA, ” …the organism can cross the placenta causing stillbirths and abortions…….Some cases of acute toxoplasmosis in adults are associated with psychiatric symptoms such as delusions and hallucinations.”~Dr. Torrey~ THE STANLEY MEDICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE.
        I normally do not put too much faith in these writers, Patrick, but they got it right where Sam’s ailment ( psychosis due to neurological infection) is concerned. But, what ( perpetually) ails Sam is a lack of living life. It’s doomsday all the way with this character….whether she’s happy or not….the climate is always somber and overcast.
        Sonny, Carly, Michael…Oh, my friend…do not get me started!! LOL.

      • Shay

        September 26, 2017 at 5:33 am

        Yep, CeeCeeGirl!!!…..That illness screamed “toxoplasmosis” to me from the start, too…it really was a no-brainer! Maybe I was just more attuned to the obvious symptoms because I so loathe cats and so I’m aware that they are infamous for causing this particular malady—amongst many other truly nasty ills! (Hence it always make me cringe when I see expectant mothers caring for felines….) Also, as I have mentioned before, this affliction has been historically used on soaps a number of times…I cannot recall specific instances at this juncture, other than I read that no less than Heather Webber suffered from said symptoms of that disease when she was pregnant with Steven Laaaaarrrrrs, and I believe it was touch and go for both them for awhile! (“Twas before my regular GH viewing years, but once when I was checking out her background online, I saw something to the effect that Heather was extremely sick during her gestational period with Jeff Webber’s son….and the resulting medical crisis brought them closer together.) Just saying….

    September 16, 2017 at 10:41 am

    It seems too obvious that it would be Nicolas after the “clue” about him being shot and pushed out a window. Steve Burton as Nicolas? Don’t see it…

    LOL. I was thinking Steve would be the famous Dr. Bronsky. After all, before his first accident he was studying to be one!

    As I mentioned in earlier posts Heather announced over a year ago that there was another Quartermaine out there that no one knew about. I think Franco is a Q…and one of the Jason’s is his brother. All seems to indicate that Billy Miller is not the real Jason, as Sam, Carly and Sonny keep repeating that he’s not the same…

    who knows. Either the hints are in our face and fact or they’re meant to throw us off. I think they’re doing a good job in that we don’t know for sure. I’m looking forward to it regardless of how it plays out.

    • Abruzzfan

      Hi Rebecca! I was thinking the exact same things!

      As you said the clue that he was pushed out a window – yes too obvious. Like you said – I think they are trying to throw us off :)!

      I do recall Heather mentioning the Q that no one knew about.

      Sam, Carly, Sonny do keep repeating (over and over again) that Jason is not the same …

      Looking forward …

        Hi Abruzzfan! Long time…(not sure if it’s you or me that’s not been on as much…perhaps you have; I haven’t.) Good to hear from you!

        So I was rereading my post and I need to amend a bit. I was referring strictly to who I think Steve Burton will be playing. Not sure if “patient six” is Steve Burton or another actor they’re bringing on. When he rides into town in the preview clip Michael showed, he was completely healed. Remember? Steve Burton on the bike? So, maybe this IS Nicolas, in the form of whichever actor is now playing the role. Although, if Nicolas is alive and Valentin knew it all along…remember how he kept insinuating that maybe Nicolas might be, that nobody found the body…hmmmm…I’m thinking as I’m typing. IF Valentin knows that Nicolas is alive (perhaps they made some deal that Nicolas would disappear because he was facing charges thus Valentin would inherit everything he always wanted…but unbeknownst to Valentin Nicolas made his way over to the clinic, will chage his face, ala whomever is playing the role) thus can come back to Port Charles…The plot thickens…

      • Abruzzfan

        September 18, 2017 at 6:30 pm

        Hey Rebecca! Good to hear from you too!

        Like you say it could be any of these guys, but I think Patient6 is SB since we all know he was recast and they keep say how dangerous he is. You provide many interesting options which could all work out.

        Hopefully, the reveal won’t be dragged out too long?

        Ava loves Nik….would she choose a Steve Burton nuNik over Duke’s son Grif-Finn? It seemed like they wanted the Lavery-Jerome entanglement again but I just can’t picture Grif-Finn as Ava-ry’s step pop.

        The whole Franco return and his pursuit of this lame picture mystery seems way too convoluted. Why does Roger look at the camera awkwardly in like 90% of his scenes? It’s so distracting and unnecessary.

        September 18, 2017 at 1:25 am

        Oh, jimh, as much as I should love for AJ to be back from the “land of the dead,” I truly am not yet ready to envisage anyone but Sean K as the character. I realize the chances for this particular actor to reappear on the GH canvas are probably slim-to-none, but with the myriad of clues being tossed out like Halloween candy at the moment, I don’t see where bringing back AJ would really enhance this specific storyline as its being drawn or answer the immediate questions at hand. That being said, I never say never that the genuine “Crown Prince of Q” will one day return to regain his rightful role as the heir to his family’s fortune.

      • Shay

        September 18, 2017 at 1:38 am

        @Grant Putnam…Everything about the Franco character has been convoluted since Day One when RoHo took over the role of Port Charles’ most demented court jester….why should this time be the exception to that rule? It seems as though the latest farce is simply another in a long line of tall tales intended to make this character appear significant, when in truth, he really isn’t and never will be, at lease not in any meaningful fashion as it relates to the past of GH’s most important legacy players! As for Griffin’s possible unpalatable romance with Ava, it does give one pause….time to prise this saintly character away from all of these GH mobsters…be it as Ms. Jerome’s latest squeeze or St. Sonny’s “spiritual advisor!” Ick!!!!

      • Steve

    In the first crossover event EVER on GH, it turns out that patient Six is really Dylan McAvoy from Genoa City. Steve Burton rides into town on his bike proclaiming himself to be Jason Morgan. It turns out that the fake Jason (Steve Burton) had a twin, named Dylan and they were separated at birth. It turns out that Monica had an affair with Ian Ward in the 80’s while Alan was at work. She became pregnant of course and delivered twins but she paid off the staff at GH to keep the double birth a secret. She sent Dylan off with Ian to Genoa City. Where he was adopted by another family in another state. Nikki Newman isn’t really Dylan’s mom. Meanwhile back in Port Charles Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) wakes up from his coma to tell everyone he has decided to get a real job at a small produce market on the edge of town. He is giving up danger and mob activities to grow organic vegetables and raise his kids in a safe environment. Franco meanwhile finds out that the boy in the picture isn’t his friend at all but rather his twin brother who grew up to be Helena Cassadine’s adopted child. Not Nikolas as every one thought. His name was Tropico Cassadine. He is even more evil than Valentine and Stavros. Tropico sets Heather free from the asylum with a BLT and an overused rock song. She returns to Port Charles to wreak havoc with all the citizens in a way that only Heather can. Finally Heather catches up with Tropico and fries his brain on LSD and sends him to the asylum and tells Franco that she loves him ONLY. Dylan leaves Port Charles to head home to find out that he belongs in Pine Valley with Erica Kane who he has been messing around with all along. They both ride out on the motorcycle he came to town in. As this nightmare story finally ends, we see a body lying in a bed and it looks so similar to AJ Quartermaine. In reality it turns out that Sheila Carter had a sex change and came to town to destroy innocent lives since she wore out her welcome in Genoa City and Los Angeles.

      If I remember correctly Nikolas did have Jason’s ring, but Spencer found it, kept it, but lost it at Patrick’s house. Didn’t it roll under the sofa, or something? Didn’t Sam find it there?
      I do believe Nik had a stake in finding that ring, but I can’t remember why….those were his ‘dark’ days.

  8. Mary SF

    September 16, 2017 at 11:40 am

    Morgan was never shot so that rules him out.

    If this was a Jason reveal would it not make more sense to have the real Jason in a coma in a long term care centre where Sam is going to admit Jason 2.0? It seems there would be more drama in that scenerio than Ava finding him –is Ava even aware what the old Jason looked like?

    No, my money is on this being Nikolas. Ava and Valentin both fit into that story line — and it makes sense– that is my guess and hope, because Valentin needs a serious opponent duking it out for the Cassadine fortune. Spencer is cute, but nothing to worry about, and Lulu is more of a gnat than a threat.

    Well the blonde said ” he got shot, fell into water and went into shock…so patient 6 has to be one of the three…Jason, Nicholas, or Morgan. So Theory #1 – Patient 6 is Morgan Corinthos, Dr. Bronsky is Steve Burton as Jason Q and Billy Miller is Jason Morgan. Theory #2 – Billy Miller turns out to be AJ who was brainwashed into thinking he was Jason Morgan (the writers rewriting history) and Steve Burton comes back as Jason Morgan ( since the TV ads keep showing him in a leather jacket on motorcycle. Theory 3 – The coma Jason wakes up as Steve Burton (history rewrite), Billy Miller is the long lost fraternal twin and Patient 6 is Nicholas. Theory #4 – some version of 1,2 I and 3, lol! In a a pool , ny case Billy Miller can act his ass off and become anything whereas Burton has no range.

        …….or, it could be to create drama heralding Burton’s ‘princely’ entrance on stage?

        I know Shelly and FV can write some really stupid stuff but having Steve be Nikolas is even too stupid for them, so it would be beyond stupid hmm ya never know LOL

        It is not yet Nikolas’s time to return, not in this story, anyways.

    steve burton will not be a recast Nikolas, that one is plain stupid, whoever came up with that one wasn’t really doing a lot of thinking, just imagine, sam thinking about jason old face and having some sexual dream of him from the past but now he’s her cousin? yuk! so i have no idea how all this will play out, but i’ll give it a chance, but if this turns into just about sonny, carly sam and the two jasons then i’ll be turn off.

      hi @aria.

      “Thank You” yeah.. i’m going with this.. because I love the post speculation.. and most are always on point… as the build up is drawing near.

      and the build up has nothing to do with the expectation level of the dire and dullard Corinthos clan.. and their piece of the pie. it’s just plain and simple.. gone on too long…

      I am so over… Sonny and Carly – Jason and Sam – Michael and Nelle – Finn – Franco.. etc

      I simply want.. Billy Miller out of their orbit… let it be that his character , Jake Doe.. was already a doctor.. and that he was on his way to port Charles after finding out he has twin and another brother.. as it were… Steve Burton and Franco.. and that he was simply looking for his “family”

      you know.. i’m so over Roger Howarth ‘ Franco… as soon as he returned he was immediately fixated on to the corinthos pie and involved that quickly in a story built for him. I am not interested in Franco and Liz. nor am I interested that, if it turns out he’s a Quartermaine… that will not fly .. that’s DOA material.

      Liz is a prop.. and it’s so distasteful.. that Shelley and Frank are using Liz like this.

      I do not care one iota if Steve Burton is back in the fold as a lackey… for Carly and Sonny… he is not talented enough for any thing more than that…. and yet the Corintos clan has ruined this show. LOOK AT THE RATINGS PEOPLE.

      it’s going to be laugh out loud just what Shelley and Frank write for Steve Burton. because of his emmy win and experience at Y&R will generate at GH

    Oh deal. Altman and Passanante are no Henry Sleasr and this ain’t Edge of Night. Carlivati’s version of Days is must watch TV; GH is on life support.

    • Jake

      September 17, 2017 at 7:35 am

      I disagree about Days. While it has gotten better, it still deserves to be in 4th place. There are so many bad actors and the sets suck. Gh has great talent and have amazing sets. Sally is getting to write more intriguing stories. (I.e. Patient 6, Franco, Finn mystery etc)

    • Patrick

      September 17, 2017 at 2:41 pm

      “…. Carlivati’s version of Days is must watch TV; GH is on life support. ”

      all things relative and cyclical. Days resurgence is tantamount to MUST SEE.


      I watch both DAYS and GH. Days has truly been the distraction I had hoped for. so I don’t have to be thinking about GH sad state. Corinthos overload stink

    I’m still holding out hope that the famed Dr. Bronsky turns out to a pseudonym for Dr. David Hayward, who has branched off the Orpheus Project from AMC and is now in the business of facial/bodily reconstruction. I think Vincent Irizarry would fit in very well on GH and tying him to characters like Ava and Valentin would be a smart move.

    As for Patient 6, I think it makes most sense for it to be Nikolas. There has been so much talk recently from Valentin suggesting that Nikolas might be alive, and if Patient 6 was put into the clinic by family, it would make sense that Valentin arranged for him to be placed there after his fall. It removes Nikolas as an obstacle so that Valentin could get the Cassadine fortune, but also clears his own name of murder charges.

    Plus, since Ava is at the clinic now, and the only reason she is there was because she agreed to nullify her testimony in Spencer’s civil suit, it would be an attack of the conscience for her to find Nikolas there in the state he’s in.

    It would also make sense from a character stand point for Nikolas because he has a history of psychosis in his family. Laura was in a catatonic state for years, so Nikolas suffering a psychotic break after the trauma he experienced is not far fetched.

    However, I have a suspicion it will be Steve Burton behind the mask. We haven’t heard anything about Nikolas being recast, so unless GH pulls a huge surprise on us, he isn’t coming back yet. Plus, the blood dripping from Valentin’s finger onto Nikolas’ name is a bit too on-the-nose, so I think it was an intentionally heavy-handed red-herring.

    My only issue is that I don’t know who would have placed Jason (assuming Steve Burton is playing the real Jason) in that clinic. I also don’t think it would be a good way to tie him back in to the canvas because Ava didn’t know Jason with his old face. Regardless of what happens, it will definitely be intriguing to watch.

      W – O – W

      “…I’m still holding out hope that the famed Dr. Bronsky turns out to a pseudonym for Dr. David Hayward ”


      on the topic of DOCTORS – i’m waiting for more James DePaiva , Dr. Bensch

      I hope that the masked man in Russia… is the recast of Nicholas. because Ava .. who is on the mend… and getting her life back in order. deserves to have a life. and this is the perfect time for GH to get on the stick… and just let loose with Nicholas… PLUS this gives Valentin a new lease on life. besides .. Shelley and Frank have got to have a back up plan.. if the Steve Burton / Billy Miller / and Roger Howarth debacle doesn’t live up to all the red herring hype and staying power. no? GOD it just stinks to know that once the twin story is revealed.. that it’s all tied in to Sonny and Carly…. they are just plain out awful to watch. what’s the point in overkill.

      one thing that just bugs me to no end. is these spiritual visits between Sonny and Griffin. what the effin for ? for the audience to be spoon fed that Sonny the he man has a soul. Sonny and Carly, as I’ve posted.. are so laughable that their characters have become caricature. and it’s just no longer that interesting a show, with; Maurice Benard and Laura Wright. this show is in serious wasteland.

      • Celia

        September 17, 2017 at 9:11 pm

        Hmmmm, Patrick. Could Dr. Bensch be one of the missing links in the triplet/Nikolas/Valentin/Russia story? What a mess…getting a headache over it. LOL.
        Could there exist a collaborative ’embroidery’ between Valentin, Nikolas ( or whoever MrMask is), Dr. Bronsky and our good Dr Bensch, whose protegee, Kiki, seems to be his obsession?

      • Shay

        September 18, 2017 at 12:39 am

        @Patrick….Trying to convince the viewers that the soulless Sonny is a spiritual being is a thankless task indeed, not to mention an absolute exercise in futility!….Really….why even bother? Given his past history of so-called “personal reinventions,” this latest effort to “humanize” the egotistical, remorseless thug will surely be just as much of a failure as have all previous attempts.

      • Steve

        September 18, 2017 at 9:35 am

        While I would love seeing David Hayward on GH (for at least a short stint), a telling sign that won’t happen soon is the writers giving Dr. Bensch the first name “David”. If they had any intent of bringing Hayward on, Bensch would’ve been given a different first name.

    • Timmm

      September 18, 2017 at 4:14 am

      Jimmy, enough with the other cancelled soap opera characters! NONE of the characters Frank has brought on have made any positive contributions to the show. For instance, I like Dr. Bensch but he is creepy, not on enough with no substance to cling on to. Stunt casting only works for legends such as Liz Taylor! OLT and AMC have to let it go. I would accept the same terms of GH was cancelled.

      • Shay

        September 19, 2017 at 11:19 pm

        Amen, Timmmbo! And that goes not just for those defunct characters, but their portrayers, as well! Here we already go again with the addition of Jessica Tuck! You’d think there were only a few other soaps that ever existed with the way old OLTL and AMC actors are frequently plucked for prime GH spots in favor of other favorite famous faces from former daytime dramas that we grew up watching and loving.

    Is this the real Valentin? Maybe the masked man is the real Valentin. Are we forgetting, Luke Spencer? Seriously the masked man has to be Nik. Unless there is a comeback of Stefan Cassadine, to set things straight once more, to get Nik and Spencer back into Wyndemere (Castle). Can’t trust them Cassadines, they will change one’s face to what they want it to be or bring back the dead to life. (smile)

    • Celia

      September 17, 2017 at 4:41 pm

      Awesome, Jewel !!!!!! The real Valentin….hmmmmm….something to think about.

      • Shay

        September 18, 2017 at 12:15 am

        @CeeCee….I can recall mentioning to you in the past that the current Valentin could be an imposter, since he certainly never fit the vivid description set forth by the (departed???) Helena. That concept would definitely work for me, as far as for whom this “masked man” could be. It would also be delicious if it were Stefan, or, what in the heck is Jerry Jacks up to these days??? He’s been pretty darn quiet which usually means he is up to something, well, NOT good…and he is normally somewhere in the mix of these evil bad boy miscreant antics!

    • Timmm

      September 18, 2017 at 4:15 am

      A great theory since the Valentin we know is a pussy cat! I also thought of Stephan but you really need Nick on the show if his uncle were to return.

    September 17, 2017 at 5:21 pm

    I think that Steve Burton’s Jason, or whomever he is going to be this go around, may very well somehow know that Sonny and Carly’s son, Morgan, is really alive and well.

    • GaysOfOurLives_5683

      September 17, 2017 at 5:22 pm

      He may be helping to keep Morgan in hiding from Sonny’s dangerous mob life, even if that meant keeping him from his own

      • su0000

        September 17, 2017 at 9:24 pm

        Morgan is alive, of course..
        But– he has not been recast so he’s not in the story..
        He will be recast and returned someday and I’d bet not for until late 2018 ..

      • GaysOfOurLives_5683

        September 18, 2017 at 6:12 am

        Just because he is not “on screen”, that doesn’t just mean…. That… POOF … the character is no longer a part of “The Whole Wide Story”. Just saying. Lol.

  22. Timmm

    September 18, 2017 at 3:45 am

    Here is what I think will happen with Steve Burton’s return. HE is Jason Quartermaine, the doctor who Helena formed him into her own man, Dr, Bronsky. She has her medical guy in place and somehow since she is “Dead” Valentin has taken over her role in the messy Frankenstein lab. As for Jason Morgan, it was a soldier Helena created. He will still take the name Jason Morgan but will have to aligned himself with others. He will probably work with Sonny but him and Sam will be done and Steve Burton will claim Sam and his endearing mother FINALLY! Dr. Jason Quartermaine! Love it! The Franco connection? Who the FREAK cares!

      Zero effs are given about bobby’s ties to P6, olJason, nuJason or an iteration of Prince Nik.

      Watch the old clips of Alan bringing his hewly found bastard child to the hospital to ‘hang out’ while he did rounds and Monica chastising him saying something like “take it out of here now, Alan!” lol

  23. Celia

    September 19, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    Just finished watching……ok—not what I expected.
    Kudos to all the fans who said MrMask was SB.
    Kudos to those who suggested ( that’s you, Jimmyh) it could possibly be SB taking up the role of Nikolas, if, indeed, that is the case.
    I think he is playing Nik now. Quelle Surprise!! Not !!!!!
    I must admit I was surprised unlike some who were right on the mark. But, is he Nik?
    I think Valentin orchestrated this. I still believe it is Nik. Valentin knees exactly where Nik was….the reason he send Ava there.
    But, the original was not SB. I knew the body was different. As Francesca Bruno said…..person could have been changed until today where Burton took over.
    If he is Nik…..what a shock to Ava that will be.
    And, what irony, eh?

    Notice how they are not showing Jason’ s face in the hospital. Imagine everyone’s surprise when he wakes up with the real Jason’s face!!!

  25. Jewel

    September 19, 2017 at 4:13 pm

    I believe Steve Burton is the real Jason Morgan (Quartermaine), while on the other the hand Billy Miller (Jason) might be his twin. This is where Helena might have experimented on him and program his brain to think like the real Jason(Steve B.) Thus knowing enough to relate to Sam, Sonny and Carly. This clinic the man in the mask (Jason) is sitting, it might just be run by Helena, good luck on this one Ava. I think Nick is alive and is staying in hiding, for now, Helena will make sure of that, whether she is dead or alive. Valentin knows a lot more than he saying. Remember the curse, Helena put on Sam, will have an effect on her and Jason. Then there is their baby girl, Scout. Who will be the real father of that kid and what will happen then? This means Sam’s baby is born to the other Jason. Is Franco another of Alan Quartermaine boys? It might just be!

    Basically as you can see and know that Franco and Jason are actually cousins not brothers and Jason in the hospital is actually Drew who happen to be Jason twin who supposedly died at age 3 but Franco remember Susan coming to take Drew out the home. But who this woman related to that raised Franco.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.


Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.


Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
