GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Catches On To Ryan Leading To Dire Consequences

Courtesy/ABC

All of Ryan Chamberlain’s (Jon Lindstrom) recent machinations may come back to bite him this week on General Hospital. as all roads will lead to dramatic episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.  As GH Co-Head Writer, Shelly Altman tells Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now: “This is a can’t-miss week. So many trains are running down tracks that are certain (to collide) with a big bang.”

Viewers were left with an exciting cliffhanger on Friday’s episode which saw Carly (Laura Wright) standing behind Ryan in the parking lot now knowing that “Kevin” is Ryan.  How did we get here?  Earlier, after Carly finds Jason released from the hospital, she tells him about Franco’s (Roger Howarth) interview with Lulu (Emme Rylan) and that Franco called Ryan Chamberlain by the name of Tom Wilson.  She recalls the man in the room next to her when she was locked away at Ferncliff was named Wilson.  Jason (Steve Burton) begs her to stay away from the mental facility and to not put her unborn baby at risk.

Ava (Maura West) comes upon “Kevin” being bandaged at GH up after he claims Franco injured him when he went to confront him following Franco’s confessional interview of the serial murders, which was a set-up by Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) to lure the real killer out   After dancing around why he went to see Franco and “risking” his life, he asks Ava to run away with him tonight to Canada to get married.

Mac (John J. York) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) try to help jog Lulu’s foggy memory about the night she was stabbed and attacked, and remember discovering there were two more potential victims in Ryan’s killing spree making it 9, when there used to be only 7.   Felicia asks Lulu how she learned about these new victims, and she explains Laura (Genie Francis) saw a list of Ryan’s victims in Kevin’s office.  Everyone wonders how Kevin got the names.  C’mon Lulu, get it together and remember what happened to you, the answer is right in front of you!

Liz (Rebecca Herbst) is stunned when Franco appears at her door, stabbed and bleeding out.  After tending to his wounds, she calls the paramedics, but before he passes out he tells her he did not do commit the murders, but Ryan Chamberlain did.   When Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene she relates what Franco said to him, but passes it off as Franco being delirious from his stabbing.

After Ava agrees to marry “Kevin”, she heads home to pack, but tells him she’ll meet him back at GH.  On her way to the elevator, Ava runs into Carly and announces to her enemy that she and “Kevin” are getting married, and exits.  Then, Mac and Felicia arrive as Carly thinks this is too insane to be true, and Felicia thinks Ava must be lying.

In Jordan’s hospital room, Nina (Michelle Stafford) goes through Jordan’s purse in order to get her keys so she can get Curtis (Donnell Turner) some new clothes while he is waiting for his wife to come out of surgery. However, she sees Jordan’s phone has a voice mail marked “urgent” and hands it to Curtis who looks very distressed.

In the hospital garage, Ryan stores his lock box containing all of his victim’s licenses in the trunk of his car.  When he closes the trunk, Carly is standing behind him.   Showdown time!

So, will Ava and Carly have to team up to bring down Ryan?  How do you think Ryan’s reign of terror will comes to a conclusion? Share your thoughts via the comment section below?

What a set-up for next week! February Sweeps might be over, but GH is definitely heating things up heading into March. Something tells me Ryan is going to kidnap Carly, there will be a car accident involving Ryan/Carly and the Teen Scene heading up to Niagara Falls, and it will result in Carly losing her baby. I can’t see GH giving Carly a successful pregnancy this late in her life with the multitude of issues that could arise and create really good drama between her and Sonny. I just don’t want to see this story lead to Sonny and Margaux hooking up.

As for the Ryan story, there are so many balls up in the air right now, with all of them sure to come crashing down sooner rather than later. The build up to this moment has been excellent, and I’m most looking forward to Ava’s wrath when she realizes she’s been having an affair with the psycho who killed her daughter. Maura West will rock those scenes, as she always does.

The most maddening part of this story for me is what has been done to Franco in the process. I realize it was necessary for this part of the story to work, and bringing in Franco and Lulu’s history to conflate the memories of her two attacks (the first by Franco years ago and the second by Ryan) was smart, yet also beyond maddening because we all know Franco didn’t do it.

And after years of being the town pariah, I want Franco to have his happily ever after with Liz. He’s earned it, and his redemption story has been superbly done. The best thing to come out of this is that Drew never believed Franco was guilty, solidifying their growing bond, which is one of the highlights of GH right now. Given their shared childhood trauma at the hands of Jim Harvey, it makes sense that they would share a bond. Liz, Nina and Ava have all been skeptical since day one about Franco’s guilt too, and let’s not forget that he’s still grieving for Kiki. Plus, we still need a proper “Friz” wedding! This is why I don’t believe Franco will die.

I’m really looking forward to next week’s episodes, and this story reaching its conclusion!

I follow you to the letter, Jimmy….I like Franco; always have …….because I love Roger.
I didn’t know the original Franco……did not watch GH at the time.
However, in my opinion, I don’t think Franco should come out the hero, if this is the writers’ intention.
The story did not follow the path I wanted it to LOL) …..so many other more feasible choices. This congregating in Niagara Falls follows no pattern; unless crazy Ryan planned to throw Ava “overboard”. Surprisingly enough, he didn’t do it to Carly…..and, here I thought he was the fiendish, most unscrupulous monster this side of the Falls.
I hope that by the time Ryan is “over”, no one else will die—no one I like, anyway…LOL.❤️

So the entire Ryan Chamberlain storyline comes down to propping Frankie’s pets Frodd & Ava, while characters who were actually involved in the original Ryan storyline, like Felicia & Lucy, are rarely seen.

If Ryan had actually killed Frodd & Ava, that would have been an improvement, of course. Except then they would be in Hell, and become MY problem.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Satan, this is one time I agree with Satan! 🙂

Jimh
Jimh

While there has been some improvement it should had been Felicia confronting Ryan…still the story has flaws as no worker at the mental hospital ever figures Kevin’s patient was Ryan..too much involvement with Carly and Ava in this when original Ryan story characters like Lucy and Felicia are barely seen…Mac should had been the commish…had Ryan caused Drew to swerve his car into Mac in an attempt to kill Mac who figured out Kevin is really Ryan but now in a coma ect…Ava could had found Felicia as Ryans real obsession…Spenser figures the truth and Laura confronts Ryan and Kevin at the same time not knowing which is which,,,she is holding a gun that Spenser tries to take from her knowing who the real Ryan is but the gun goes off on a Friday Cliffhanger with the viewers not know who actually got shot…anyway, where is TJ when his mom is hospitalized!!!!

Celia
Celia

TPTB never learn, Jimmy–they never listen to you!! I believe everything you say!!
I don’t know Ryan’s “association” with Felicia too well; but, enough to agree with you. It would have been poetic justice for her and Mac figure out the Ryan/Kevin mystery–To make Franco the hero would be going against all that’s reasonable. It’s still not too late….we shall see.
I, also, think Anna is Alex ( or she has her sister’s memories) and vice versa–which means, Peter is Alex’s son, not Anna’s. But, Griffin may very well be Anna’s and Duke’s son. I find all this and the Ryan’s such asinine stories—-yet, I will just roll with whatever , anyway….
Faison’s infatuation was with Alex? Oh, Lordy Lord, Jimmy—-I’m confusing myself. LOL.❤️

Jimh
Jimh

now im confused…lol

Celia
Celia

PS, Jimmy,
I was thinking that it would be apropos if Kevin were the one to have the last ‘hurrah’, where Ryan is concern—-considering Ryan incarcerated him and put him through hell—anyone whose life was directly affected by crazy Ryan will do!! Anyone else but Franco !!

Jimh
Jimh

Kiki’s gran Dee should had been mention being her grandaughter was murdered..Scott wasnt around when son FRanco was stabbed and no mention of his mom Heather-at least she could had been told off screen

Celia
Celia

Yes, Delia should have made an appearance….
Does she even know Avery? You’re right, Jimmy……at the very least, both Delia and Heather should have been mentioned.
Considering Heather seems to be up to par with whatever happens in Port Charles………And, the fact that she has the ability to come and go as she pleases, one would think she’d sneak into Franco’s hospital room—-guard or no guard…

Shay
Shay

Absoluement, CeeCeeGirl!!! There’s no way in Hades that Heather would not have at least had knowledge of Ryan’s existence and all of his previous activities in the cuckoo’s nest….that woman’s legendary antenna picks up all, far and wide….always has, always will!!! To have excluded her from this scenario was inexcusable! Ditto for Dee!!!! Their progeny had pivotal roles in Ryan’s crime spree….the fact that their prospective presences were ignored is but another travesty attached to this much-flawed and inexplicable storyline.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

You got that right. We USED to have cliffhangers. Plot so diluted now that no one cares. TPTB have forgotten the tenets of writing a gripping storyline–and PLAYING IT OUT dramatically. Sigh!

Jimh
Jimh

The show needs us to be wanting more…not making it a bore!!!!

Harry
Harry

I agree, Jim. But yesterday’s show (Monday, March 4) was pitch perfect. Who would have thunk that Sonny and Robert could have such a wonderful bromance? Robert is cooler than the other side of the pillow and he makes Sonny look cool. Frank and the writers if you are listening, more please. This could be the start of a beautiful relationship.

Jimh
Jimh

Nope…cant happen…Jason would be jealous that Robert is getting too close to his love Sonny-lol

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Harry–you’re a man after my own heart. As usual, I agree with you–couldn’t agree more re Robert and Sonny. (And I just love that expression “cooler than the other side of the pillow.” Now, that’s one I haven’t heard before! 🙂

Shay
Shay

And to think that Robert Scorpio once existed to put men like Sonny in the slammer….now he’s all buddy-buddy with this thug??? I realize that needs must, but how the mighty have fallen… albeit whilst still maintaining their undeniable cool.

Celia
Celia

PPS (LOL), Jimmy,
It looks like our Jason ( such a softie) will come out the hero– at least, Laura will take some of the credit.
But, Gee-Whiz—-why is it always Jason smack in the middle of everything?
Not only will he take Ryan in, but he will also save Ava and Carly….
Uh-oh, Jimmy….this just came to me…..What are the chances Ryan will disappear in the depths ( Ha!) of the Niagara River? No body to be found! Oh, no!! Not again??

Jimh
Jimh

I hope Ryan survives…not only has he got to kill off more bores like Willow and Chase,he has got to be around when Ava gives birth to their baby-lol

Celia
Celia

LOL, is right……You may get your wish, Jimmy—-if Ryan’s “body” is a no show; he may go back to PC to do just that. But, would he be that stupid?
Ava pregnant with Ryan’s baby? Hmmmm–intriguing thought!!

I fear for Carly’s baby…easy out for a tough story line

Loving this storyline and can’t wait for tomorrow! GH has been amazing.

Ryan will be killed, and one of his kidneys will go to Jordan.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Say what????!!!!

Celia
Celia

Good thinking, Carrie—
Yet, knowing how weird GH is about Faison and his masks; memory-approptiation; twin-blindness etc.; would it be too much of a stretch { if living with Ryan’s kidney(s) } to think that sooner or later, Jordan will turn into a “Mrs”. Hyde?

Harry
Harry

Or…..Valerie will be killed and her kidney will go to Jordan. The actress is leaving. Ryan can’t die–supernatural villains like him live forever.

Carrie
Carrie

Or, sadly, it might be Oscar. Drew and Kim will offer one of Oscar’s kidneys to Jordan. There may be some tear-jerking scenes between Drew and Curtis.

Tara
Tara

Yeah but Ava and Carly don’t even like each other so why would they team up against Ryan? The only way for Ryan to end his conclusion if Ava is the one to kill the guy first before he kills somebody else, he will be tough to beat of course so I think Ryan should kill himself before he goes any further

Mags
Mags

I do believe, at some point, there has to be some sort of truce between Carly/Sonny and Ava. They may never be besties but, they cannot carry on this feud for ever. If you were in a fight for your life along side of someone that you can’t stand would you not team up to save yourselves? My guess is that, rather than team up, Ava will somehow be instrumental in saving Carly. Not sure that CarlyJason will ever acknowledge Ava is capable of good (remember, Jason has no gratitude for her role in saving him) but Sonny may. Which could then lead to friction between Carly and Sonny. And the beat goes on. As far as the kids, I’m still not certain what type of trouble awaits them. I’m just glad that Franco will be okay.

aria
aria

I’m loving the storyline winding down, there’s so many ways it could end, I don’t care if Ava, or Kevin, or Laura or even Franco have Ryan brought to justice, as long as they don’t turn this into Carly or Jason saving the day. If the storyline is coming to the end(its played out way to long). please do it justice and don’t make it anticlimactic by now throwing Carly and Jason in the mix. as soon as I saw carly in the Friday cliffhanger my first though was oh here we go again, they are going to set up Carly needing to be rescued and of course carly can only be “saved” by Jason . if so, it will be a dissappointing ending.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Agreed! LAURA should be front and center! Yet, she’s been off-screen for the better part of two weeks now. Kevin is HER husband. This should be Laura’s story. Yes, so very disappointing. And it so dissipates and dilutes the story line. Not exciting–just tedious and stale and–dare I say it?–boring. TPTB should know you do NOT stop and start an exciting plot line. You use a linear device–to keep the momentum going. Otherwise, it’s has none and just peters out with the audience shouting at the screen: GET ON WITH IT!

Rodd

This story was being drawn out at time and I thought it would never end. But suddenly, it’s taken on a new life and has gone places I didn’t imagine it would. This is how it should have been all along. When a story is planned out, all those pesky schedules and ratings weeks should be planned for. Writers need to give us exciting stuff like they’re writing now throughout the entire story. Play it less if you don’t have the actors or time’s too long between hitting key dates with key story points. Plan it out!

As much as I’ll groan about GH’s writing being a mess, I whole-heartedly think they hit it out of the park when they hit their stride. They’re doing that now with a number of stories.

Can’t wait to see the next episode!

Celia
Celia

Hmmmm…I don’t know–will everyone come to the convlusion Ryan is not Kevin, at the same time?
Too many inconsistencies. For a minute I had thought that Franco would have found himself within the bowels of Ferncliff; thus, finding Kevin and Laura, unwittingly ‘saving’ him.
Who will be Jordan’s kidney donor? Franco?
Oh, and…this memory thing with all the twins? Bullcaca!! Mundane and medically inexplicable. Just sayin’. It’s a soap!!

Satan
Satan

The blind virus has a purpose… they just haven’t got to that plot point yet. Remember when Dr Kim was researching various “experimental” cancer treatments, which use a virus to target tumors??

With both Drew and Jason as compatible blood donors for Oscar, the virus probably still present in their bodies will be used to formulate a cure for Oscar. And of course, the other result from all the memory swapping potential is that Anna will turn out not to be Whiny Heiny’s mom after all, she just “remembered” Alex giving birth to him.

I am laughing so hard, I am almost convulsing, at your word. It’s probably a typo, but funny non the less. Please don’t be angry, you probably know by now, I have a crazy sense of humour.
I think Aunt Stella will be Jordan’s donor, tieing her even closer.

Celia
Celia

Bullcaca? LOL…no, not a typo. My sense of humor is just as “crazy-weird” as yours–
Have you ever seen the Liberty Insurance commercial with the cyclist along the Hudson? His calves? I break into peals of laughter just thinking about those satirical calves….laughing right now!! The thing is, my laughter is so contagious ( LOUD), people start laughing without knowing why….
Aunt Stella? Oh, Lawd!! That’s rich!!

Violet Lemm

Read your comment starting with “Hmmmmm, I don’t know. Will everyone come to the same CONVLUSION Ryan is not Kevin at the same time.” I think you were typing CONCLUSION, but I read it as CONVULSION, with your typing VLU, instead of VUL. Only in my weird mind, did I mix up the two words, leaving me in hysterical laughter, with my cat looking at me like I’d lost my mind. Please , let’s just forget the whole thing, seeing as I seem to be the only one seeing the twisted word. I know bullcaca and loverly, especially when applied to the aforementioned characters. I hope the DOD SL doesn’t make me as crazy as this one.
Oh yes, Aunt Stella is a strong possibility.

Celia
Celia

Oh, my Lord!! Miss Violet……that IS a typo!! I hadn’t even realized.
I get it–I unwittingly created a double ‘entendre’–and, as yours, I find humor where others do not!!
I like COVULSION better. So a’ propos–it fits!!
This is nuts!! Everyone’s headed for Niagara Falls…
I am trying do hard to follow the reasoning. Was Ryan’s intention to just step over the Peace Bridge and VOILA’ , he and Ava are in Ontario, Canada? Away from the law?
Big coincidence for the kids to follow the same path….not only are they all convulsing, but also, the entired scenario is a convoluted mess!!

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia
Thank you for rereading your comment. Was thinking that you were thinking that I’d really gone around the bend.
I’ve been reading all kinds of scenarios to this Ryan ending. For one, he dissapears, another is he’s shot, etc. I want to see someone get the satisfaction of getting him, be it Ava, Laura, or? As far as a kidney for Jordan, even with a dead body, they can’t just take a kidney from him, without consent,right? Could Kevin give his o.k, being next of kin?

Celia
Celia

Violet,
I had this feeling that Ryan would disappear…..isn’t that his modus operandi?…..whether planned or not!?However, I find it neither mystifying nor ‘cute’….it’s actually a recycled plot….
The story should end with Ryan dead sprawled on some boulder…..better yet drift downriver; emptying into the great Falls and swallowed by the heavy pressure of the cascades!! Too cruel? Oh, well….
I hope he is found for Jordan’s sake….if he is a match, that is!! But, there’s no prolonging. Cells die if too much time goes by.
So, yeah, Kevin could give permission. I doubt Ryan is a registered organ donor? Too funny!!
When there’s no next of kin, to sign off; there’s CORE—-surprisingly, GH has not mentioned this? It’s make believe soapland…..TPTB make their own rules….
Jimh suggested a ‘little’ Ryan or Ryanette to be borne by Ava….how about that? And the saga continues? Before long the baby will be ten, and Ryan will return to claim his prize.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia
I don’t know about anyone else, but this “end” of Ryan was a total let down, after all the months of murder and mayhem, leading up to the finale, and no body. WTH! I agree with you. I also wanted to see him at least drowned.
Oh, speaking of which, I almost peed my depends when Jason was telling his Loverly about saving Ava, and he said ” well I couldn’t let her go, in front of Laura” Does that mean he would have, if Laura hadn’t been there? Also Oscar’s talk with Drew was nice, but with all of Drew’s double talk, did he ever really answer his son’s question of should he our shouldn’t he? Hope Oscar was less confused than I was.

Celia
Celia

Ahhhh!!…..on second thought, Violet, can you possibly mean “loverly”? Nah–not a typo either. Loverly–“rly” , the tail end of Carly. LOL. You got it the first time. LOL.
Those two crazy kids are nuts about each other and no one gets it–not even themselves. HaHa❤️

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

But the most pertinent question: WHY were the real Kevin and Laura AWOL off screen for so many days? TPTB have forgotten the rules of the game. You need to keep the momentum going–not just stop the action for two weeks. Poor, poor execution of a plot that we are all weary of BECAUSE of its execution. Missed again! Laura should be front and center always; after all, Kevin IS HER husband. “Murder” of a character!

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

O.K, I’ll be the first to say it. They finally found a way to shut Carly up, and keep her out of everyone’s business.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a Laura, Ava, Carly showdown with Ryan with each woman getting in their licks… but then they part, and it’s freakin Felecia, standing there with a gun (she’s overheard it all somehow) and gives the monologue of her career (“oh so you forgot about me, huh, well, I sure as hell haven’t been able to forget about you!”) and then she shoots the maniac dead in his tracks. All the woman vow to carry the secret to the grave (since, Ryan was unarmed) which binds these women for several storylines to come…

I know none of this will happen but the GH in my head is pretty awesome.

Harry

A serial killer and his fiance are off to get married in Niagara Falls with a bound and gagged woman in the trunk. What could possibly go wrong?

Especially since Niagara Falls is frozen over this time of the year. Not that GH will deign to acknowledge that fact! For them, it’s all balmy temps and the water is freely flowing in their version of upstate NY, even though there’s actually a polar plunge occurring in “realville!”…..

Celia
Celia

Hi, Shay,
We keep missing each other….how are you?
You’re certainly right about the state of NY ‘s “state” of frozen wonderland—-but, I don’t think the falls ever freeze—-even in extreme temps, do they? ….a little ice here and there, maybe.
I’ve visited family in Toronto many times in winter……No freezing, It’s the Law of Physics!! LOL……albeit, I do wish GH would wake from its fairyland dreams—some reality, once in a while would be welcomed.
I cannot seem to take Sam, Jason, Shiloh &Co. seiously—-Sam is still driving me crazy with her monotone mumbling; Jason’s eternally, frozen ( worse than the polar plunge) stare; the twins, Alexis playing cat and mouse with this new guy sporting a hair-do a’ la Emu; and Franco, the hero. Did I overlook anything?
Soon, mia amica.❤️

Celia

Too bad Laura will not have the chance to confront Ryan and punch him in the mouth.
I must say……even with her face stained with grime and soot, Genie Francis still looks beautiful!!

I don’t know why Ava couldn’t hold him, while Carly hits him you know where, with one of her clunky shoes. As Ryan said, now that she’s had more room to stretch out, and give her mouth a rest, she should be ready to do some damage. I am sure Laura will get her chance, when she and Jason get to N.F if he’s still alive.

Celia
Celia

I’m actually afraid of Carly, Violet…..I am just over five feet!! LOL.
Yet, I could take Ryan just as you described it—had one or two such run-ins during my College days. Ha!! Have no idea what became of them……
So, women of Ava’s and Carly’s caliber, should be an easy feat taking him down…yeah!! Woman Power!! LOL.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Three: Trouble Looms For Ava, Cameron’s Heartfelt Song, A Liesl & Franco Duet

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the third installment of the Nurses’ Ball 2019 and this time there were several musical numbers to discuss, as well as story points moving forward.

Obrecht was back and in her full glory and that meant great news to GH fans to see Kathleen Gati appear on the Nurses’ Ball stage again.  However, Dr. O brought with her a friend, none other than Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who joined Frau Liesl in a rendition of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet “Guilty”.   The combo, obviously a play on how they do bad things to others (or have), and they have nothing to feel guilty about!  Then, there was that drop the mic moment, literally!

Cameron (William Lipton) has shown up at the Corinthos’ home to give Josslyn (Eden McCoy) a video message from Oscar (Garren Stitt) that he was holding on to per Oscar’s dying request to give to Joss.  Before he leaves, she asks Cameron to stay and watch it with her, but he tells her she should do this alone.  Later, Josslyn watches the video on her laptop.  Contained in the video is Oscar saying how grateful he was for their time together and that he hopes she will lives life to the fullest, starting with singing their song at the Nurses’ Ball.   Next, Josslyn comes down the stairs of the house in her gown ready to honor Oscar and she heads out to the ball.

Courtesy/ABC

When Joss arrives, Cameron is now taking the stage.  William Lipton performs a song he wrote called “North Star” against the backdrop of emotional images of the friendship between Cameron, Josslyn, and the late Oscar.  (You can watch it below.  It was one of the highlights of the ball thus far)

Lipton took to his Twitter account after the outpouring of kudos and support after his performance aired expressing: “Thank you so much for all your kind words for the song Cam was singing at The spotlight should be at the GH writers who inspired me to write this song. Their words in the script were so beautiful.”

Ava Jerome also took to the stage as the marvelous Maura West performed “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” as only Ava J. would do! A sultry chanteuse is this Port Charles bad girl, whose night may go from a cool performance to a nightmare now that a gloved figure has knocked out Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), which only leads to one conclusion .. serial killer Ryan is back.  Will Ava get her vengeance and kill the guy, or will someone else?

Courtesy/ABC

Elsewhere in story, Finn (Michael Easton) proposed to Anna (Finola Hughes) on-stage at the ball, and though it was a typical bumbling clumsy moment from Finn, it was all the same endearing, especially when Anna says “yes” to his proposal.  Later, the two spend some alone time where Finn explains why he chose the ring he did; harkening back to when she was blackmailing him in Europe (It was a Monaco blue sapphire he chose, and Monaco was the place where they started their unlikely pairing).

Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) tries to warn Sam (Kelly Monaco) about Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but her parents Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) come to her aid, and then Sonny once again threatens Shiloh.  Later, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) gets a call from Diane Miller that Nina (Michelle Stafford) overhears.  On the call, Willow mentions her baby’s father is in Port Charles.  Nina learns Willow had a baby, and Shiloh looks at Willow.

Laura (Genie Francis) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) are rescued in Canada, and Laura calls Kevin’s cellphone but it goes to voice message to warn him about Ryan heading to Port Charles.   Meanwhile, Curtis calls Chase (Josh Swickard) and tells him that Ryan Chamberlain is alive. and on his way to most probably the Nurses’ Ball.

So, what musical number did you enjoy the most on Tuesday’s Nurses’ Ball?  What did you think of Anna and Finn getting engaged?  Shiloh overhearing the news about Willow?  Josslyn receiving the video message from Oscar to perform at the ball? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Two: Cameron and the Llama, Anna’s Speech, Chase Dazzles

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, it was day two of the annual Nurses’ Ball, and things kicked-off with the opening number by the GH nursing staff, (except Elizabeth) performing the classic hit “Best of My Love” by the Emotions.   After the number, the drama started to unfold as the GH Nurses’ Ball always intersects storylines with the event.

Scott’s (Kin Shriner) plan goes awry when he opens Lucy’s (Lynn Herring) hotel room door hoping to find her making out with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), but only Kevin is there, as Ava (Maura West) figures out what Scott has been up to.  Kevin and Ava are continuing their ruse to try to lure Ryan out of hiding, but seem to be enjoying each others company more than they admit.

When Mike (Max Gail)  and Yvonne (Janet Hubert) arrive. they show off the engagement ring that Mike gave to Yvonne, which Finn (Michael Easton) sees and realizes that is his engagement ring to Anna (Finola Hughes) that he has been looking for.  Finn talks to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and they come up with an emergency plan to get the ring back, which goes off without hitch by Finn giving Mike the fake one Robert (Tristan Rogers) had.

Courtesy/ABC

Watching the ball at home, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is with Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), and Kris flips out when she sees Sam (Kelly Monaco) with Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) at the festivities.  Meanwhile, Peter (Wes Ramsey) lowers the boom on Shiloh telling him that Molly (Haley Pullos) will be doing an expose on “Dawn of Day”.  At the same time Jason (Steve Burton) and Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) hatch their own plot to nab Shiloh, and are setting up surveillance cameras at DOD.

Backstage, Cameron (William Lipton), who is ready to perform solo finds Lucy’s llama. and in the most touching moment of the episode has a heart-to-heart with the animal about losing Oscar.  William Lipton throughout the episode was terrific.

Now we come to Anna and Robert.  Anna wants to set her ex straight by telling him that she will always love him, but she wants to marry Finn, and she doesn’t know what he is up to … but to stop it – since it appears Robert is trying to be the interloper in Anna’s romance with Finn.  Later, Finn tells Robert he has his ring back and will propose to Anna

Next, after a rousing intro by Lucy, Chase (Josh Swickard) performs “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay and brings the house down and brings his gal, Willow (Katelyn MacMullan) to the stage with him to dance and finish the musical number.

As the episode comes to its conclusion, three plot points emerge:  Kristina shows up at the ball ready to confront Shiloh, as Sam looks horrified.

Cameron shows up to the Corinthos’ home to talk to Josslyn and convince her to come to the ball with him and perform, because the song is a duet, and he says to her that he has a message from Oscar to give her.

Lastly, Robin could not make it to the Nurses’ Ball this year. The annual moving speech falls to her mother, Anna to deliver about surviving and living with HIV (touchingly delivered by Finola Hughes).  Robert says he will join her on stage, because Robin is his daughter too.  From the sidelines, Robert and Finn start to watch Anna’s emotional speech,  Robert finally tells Finn he better make Anna happy. but knocks him in the arm in the process.  Finn drops the engagement ring and it ends up at Anna’s feet onstage.  She looks to the sidelines and sees both men.  Can she figure out who just proposed?

So, what was your favorite moment from the second installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below
