GH Nurses' Ball 2016 Part Three Comes To Its Emotional Conclusion As Lives Are Touched & Lives Hang In The Balance!

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital pulled out all the stops as the 2016 Nurses’ Ball concluded in its third installment leaving many viewers weeping as the Emmy-award winning drama series pulled at the heartstrings, while being a launching pad for several mysteries and storylines ahead.  If you have not seen today’s episode do not read any further.

In part 3, we pick up where we left off with Brad (Parry Shen) waiting on stage for his wedding ceremony to Lucas (Ryan Carnes) to begin.  Lucas is a no-show, and just then Amy (Risa Dorken) realizes Lucas gave her a message to tell Brad, but she forgot!  Next, the groom tries to reach Lucas by cell, but he is not answering, so Brad thinks Lucas may have wedding jitters and second thoughts. Lucy (Lynn Herring) pulls Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) and Kiki (Hayley Erin) to the stage to perform their number sooner than expected, while they kill time while everyone is trying to locate Lucas.

Next, Robert Palmer Watkins performs Shawn Mendes hit single, “Stitches” alongside of Hayley Erin’s Kiki.  Watkins was terrific in the number showcasing his vocal talents, while Erin was the perfect sidekick.  As the lyrics played out and touched the lives of those couples and non-couples attending the ball, it is clear that Dillon and Kiki’s attraction just went into full bloom.  Morgan (Bryan Craig), who is on leave from the hospital for the night wants to see Kiki following her number, but is devastated when he walks in on a kiss between Dillon and Kiki.  He then wants to leave, and so Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) accompany him.

Meanwhile back at GH, Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) finds Lucas out cold near her hospital bed and calls for help. Griffin (Matt Cohen) and Finn (Michael Easton) arrive on the scene and try to save him.  Just then Lucas’ phone rings, and Bobbie answers and tells Brad to get to the hospital ASAP.  Next, Lucy makes a speech about the awesome nurses at GH, and then in a cute number: Lulu (Emme Rylan), Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Valerie (Brytni Sarpy), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and Amy become “Epiphany and the Haunted Starlets” and perform the disco classic, “Doctor’s Orders”.

Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) has gone to Wyndemere after having it out with Hayden (Rebecca Budig).  There is now a thunderstorm in the background as Nikolas texts a photo of diamonds to Hayden and tells her to come home.  Jason (Billy Miller) is also furious at Nikolas and heads out of the ball, followed on his trail by Sam (Kelly Monaco).  At GH, Brad arrives just as Lucas flatlines! But Lucas gets his heartbeat back and is put on a ventilator. Griffin then discovers a needle mark on Lucas’ neck.  He asks Finn (Michael Easton), if he knows anything about this.  Brad says there have been two other mysterious deaths in the hospital and wonders if what happened to Lucas could be related!

Then we come to the emotional conclusion of the Nurses’ Ball, which starts with Robin (Kimberly McCullough) taking to the stage and addressing the crowd about the latest strides in HIV/AIDS research.  She relates there is a new medication to prevent HIV.  However, Robin goes on to say that according to a study, infections are on the rise in certain groups, and most prominent among them in gay men from low means (poor or homeless).  She then speaks of how her former boyfriend Stone was a young man from a low income, and it has been 21 years since his death.  Robin says her full name and hopes that one day while she is will alive, they find a cure. Anna (Finola Hughes) watches her daughter speak filled with tears.

Next, Amy decides to take the stage to perform the signature Nurses’ Ball closing anthem, “You’re Not Alone”.  But as she sings it, another voice begins to sing along, and it is none other than Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), who has shown up at the ball. Felix is shocked and thrilled to see his bff, and so is Epiphany.  Sabrina brings Epiphany to the stage to join in the song.  But while the women are singing the lyrics we cut to an emotional Brad at the hospitsl watching Lucas fight for his life as Bobbie reaches out to him, and they hold hands.  Back onstage, after Lucy is given flowers via Felix, and does not lose her dress … the ball comes to its conclusion.  In the entrance way, Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) arrests Sabrina for aiding and abetting the late Carlos.

Jason has now shown up at Wyndemere, the storm is in full force, and the lights are out.  Sam arrives soon after and hears a crash and glass breaking.  The viewers see a bloody and seemingly lifeless Nikolas on the rocks.  We fade to black.

Kudos to GH for making the Nurses’ Ball a must-see event with plenty of heart and dramatic turns.  What did you think of the final episode of this year’s Nurses’ Ball?  Did you reach for the hankies?  What was your favorite moment?

Can anyone tell me, is Risa Dorken (nurse amy), is this actress a stand in for Kristen Storms? Aside from obvious physical difference ( she’s taller

Tim

No,what makes you think that?

Christy
Christy

Weird, the entire message is not here. I was saying she looks like Kristen and sounds like her, but I know GH is produced faster than the old days so not sure they use stand in’s anymore. I read she is supposed to remind us of Amy Vining, but she is like Maxie 2.0 to me.

Lol Christy. I greed with you before you added the rest of your comment (see mine at 5:12) but I didn’t think you meant literally! Though they’re similar in fun/hyper-esque ways and have similar, pretty faces…the difference in weight would never fly as body-conscious, fashion- conscious Maxie. That’s not to imply people of all shapes and sizes can’t be as well, but that’s not the way Maxie is portrayed. All that aside, how can she be a stand-in if she’s standing right beside her!

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Lol, Christy. They do have a similar face and Amy’s, shall we say, over-the-top personality is a bit like Maxie…though Maxie’s calmed down a bit. Funny how Maxie doesn’t see herself in Amy, but I see what you mean!

Her character is very similar to Lucy years ago…

Christy you deftly moved around the issue of weight differences but I caught your meaning. HA! I for one am happy GH is using women who are not size 0s Amy and Robin are the sizes of the average American woman and they are healthy and attractive. I think we can thank Lena Dunham for a growing national movement toward body acceptance.
However, I do have a bit of an issue with Epiphany’s weight for two reasons: 1. She is not just large, she is morbidly obese and is frequently out of breath 2. She is a head nurse and knows full well that morbid obesity is a huge health risk which can lead to cardiac arrest.

“Doctor’s Orders” was a joyfully nostalgic throwback to the disco era. Nifty choreography and Sonya is a vocal powerhouse. Kudos to all the ladies.

I wished Richard Simmons had shown up on that number! That would have been a hoot!

Gripping and heartening…not a dull moment! Kudos to all for such great performances. It sure looked suspicious that Finn stashed a rather large syringe in his pocket just as Dr Griffin walked into the scene…may be a misdirect. However it sure seems someone wants to make Finn look bad. LOVED Anna, Robin, & Emma. Lucas & Brad have to be OK. And, I suspect Nicolas’ fall will put Jason in a bad light…a set-up maybe? Anyway, I loved it all! Great cat fight with Carly and Ave, too!

Patrick
Patrick

the e-mail Nicholas sent hayden… “I bet you wished I were dead” not berbatim… but close enough

and having Jason show up at the right time… just a plot point

which all boils down to….

piss me off… how far Nicholas character is just not the same… from the start of J and S tenure… they have downgraded Tyler Christopher’ Nicholas…

it’s all about Jason

it’s all about this dumbed down story of the “War of the Roses” storyline… that doesn’t do anything.. but feature the Cassadine in a bad light

I pray that whatever is going on… be it contract negotiation… or a private matter… it simply , must be taken care of and resolved

Tyler Christipher is just too good.. and a must keep for GH to continue

Great Thursday episode of GH. The last three days have been on fire. A little bit of everything you could ask for in one hour. I thought the body that would be discovered would be Lucas but in a good twist it turned out to be Nik. I also thought the person being arrested would be Julian or Alexis but in another good twist it turned out to be Sabrina. GH did a good job this week in throwing us off with the published spoilers cause it made for two moments that I didn’t see coming. Kiki and Dillon were my favorite performance (RPW sounded great and HE held her own) and have been my favorite potential couple on GH for the last two months. I am even putting them ahead of Laura/Kevin and Anna/Andre in terms of potential couples that I am loving. First time in what feels like forever that a new young couple has hit all the right chords with me. I have loved their chemistry and cuteness since their first scenes at the hospital over two months ago. They bring such a likeable youthful energy to their scenes. This show has finally found the right chemistry match for Dillon cause he’s got tons of it with Kiki while he has none of it with Lulu or Val. The opening number was a miss but at least the closing number was a hit and they stuck with recent tradition. Nik was obviously trying to frame Hayden for attempted murder (his last text to her was I know you want him dead) and he really was pushing for her to come home with the picture he sent of the diamonds. Jason has now showed up to confront Nik about the lawsuit and given their past history of brawls all over PC you can bet Jason will be in jail in no time. I don’t know if anyone else noticed it but there was a shadow of a person standing to the left of Nik’s lifeless body when the thunder cracked. Nik has either hired someone to help him frame Hayden for attempted murder (but he would rather see Jason go down) or Nik really did poison Helena last Dec and she realized what he was doing and gave orders to someone to kill Nik. I wouldn’t be surprised if Stavros is back from the dead and threw Nik out the window to avenge his mother’s death. Stavros did put a hit out on Nik about three years ago so he’s capable of killing his son. Helena may have made a deal with Valentin when she realized Nik was posioning her and he showed up to take Nik out with hopes he can claim his birthright. The two brothers in Stavros and Valentin may even be in cahoots with Valentin throwing Nik out the window and Stavros down there to stand over Nik’s lifeless body. Jason will be the first to spot Nik down there on the rocks but… Read more »

I was thinking Jerry Jax is behind this but I love the Starvos theory. Also, Valentin has not been seen yet. I pray they cast him and its Michael Muhney!

Love your post, Jay. You covered everything thoeoughly. It does look as if Jason has done Nik in and, he will probably be blamed.
Nonetheless, could Raymond Berlin ( is he dead?), or Hayden’s mother have done the deed? They want their diamonds back? LOL.

Quite the comprehensive post, Jay! To be honest I hadn’t thought about any of your theories…had other things on my mind so I didn’t get to the whodunnit stage in my mind yet! Good theories!

Overall, the Nurse’s Ball was, sadly, again, lame. Poor Lynn Herring (Lucy) tried with the wooden dialogue given her. With the exception of Wally Kurth and Brooklyn–and, of course, Kimberly’s emotional speech, summarizing what the Nurse’s Ball has been about al lthese years. Why? And during sweeps, with all the talent available, couldn’t they have done better? Another big disappointment! (Sigh!)

Timmm

Better than what Y&R offered. Their sweeps stories sucked!

Well, I will say it it was better than the past two years because for once I felt like they FINALLY went back to what the Nurses’ Ball was about HIV/AIDS awareness. [at least , I lost track on the amount of times they mentioned HIV/AIDS] the past two years I think I could count it on one hand. It was that sad.

I do think they need to rewatch previous # s again ..They were so professional ,, Quality acts!! Loved each one [ even the ones that seemed on the fly were – perfection.. The #NursesBallNeedsWendyRiche
The Opening # just did not get me that excited Perhaps it could be that the face that the # is just too cheesy and then you add that with the amount of [ or lack of amount of GH staff WE KNOW ( which has gotten to a pt we can also add on one hand)
GH has an extremely talented cast and it expands past acting which we ALL have seen. Most of them can either sing / dance – wish that whoever takes on the Nurses’ Ball actually takes the time and figures out what actors excel in and UTILIZE their skills. Here is an idea – Mandy Moore Choreographer with SYTYCD originally would at times work with DWTS [different network] Perhaps someone can loan out their expertise. Don’t know if it is the choreography or if it is the show not being rehearsed enough before they put it to tape. Also, As much as I loved that first year of Magic Milo and the magic wands -I am completely over it! This is a Nurses’ Ball to raise money for HIV/AIDS if you want to do a strip tease on the fly occasionally to get money and I am talking a few thousand for a tie .. go for it! But it is not nec when they were nothing great and the number was not better than the year before it!
I LOVED Wally & Brooklyn But who in the world were there back up dancers? {would have been great if it was Mac, Kevin, and Anna) – BTW they can dance & sing
Robin’s speech was great was missing and what the show seems to never have a problem showing EVERY day but seemed to have neglected and was NEEDED- Flashbacks…Where were the flashbacks!! I wanted the Robin and Stone Montages!!! That was the time for that!!! I was like Yes, Kimberly said it has been 21 yrs since Stone, …. Cue in the flashbacks… and .. Crickets… Where were they!!!!!

< Instead we get a song that they play for a wedding, funeral, and now the Nurses' Ball…. I want to stick metal objects in my eyes !!

Loved Robin and Emma and Ned. I also am really starting to like Kiki and Dillon. I never liked her character before even when Kristen Alderson was playing her. This is the first time I actually like her.

I did enjoy the Nurses Ball as always but 2 things were highly absent this year that did give me a little bit of a pang in my belly. That would be Kathleen Gati not performing because she is so fun to watch when she tries to take over the ball and the other gripe I have is that Lucy didn’t end up in her underwear on stage. To me that was a staple every year the Ball was shown when she would somehow have her clothes off her. What’ll be next? The Quartermaines will get turkey on Thanksgiving instead of having to order out for pizza? That will really be the straw that breaks my back.

And no Richard Simmons! Boo!

Damn, we were almost safe but then Sparkle Pony comes trotting out to sing that insipid song.
So, we get Disney but no DR O? While I hated Dr O as the chief of staff, I enjoyed her plotting with her boyfriend Faison and her campy, over-the-top performances on stage, There is no justice.

Timmm
Timmm

I love Robin BUT her speech wasnt that good. She would state a fact and then laugh and then get serious with her message. It was strange!

Dillon and Kiki’s song was really good! Robert has content on Youtube. He can sing! Haley, well I am really warming up to her and her portrayal.

I hope Lucas lives. I smell Jerry Jax!

Cannot stand Sabrina BUT she was good with Ep and Amy. By the way, I see Amy as a Meghan Trainor type of singer. I would like to see her cover Meghan at next years NB. She is a talent. Nosey BUT a talent!

I think Nick will go missing and that black guy who crushes on Hayden will be involved and Jason will take the fall!

Maxie’s dress ( by Jovani) was to die for, eh, Wifey? Looooved it! The embroidered floral illusion was Sexy as heck!!!!! That dress is definitely my pick. Everyone looked her best. I particularly liked Rebecca’s gown, as well. Big, bold flowers are all the rage.

Liking Dillon&KIki alot….like the slow build up….never cared forherbefore..
Is it me or when looking at Dillon (RPWatkins)….I see a great resemblance of Johnny Z (Brandon Barash….especially in his eyes and smile.

He looks like a 20 years younger Frank Valentini. LOL. WHY does no one see this??

Dylan

For the most part, impressed. I LOVED that Obrecht did NOT get to hijack the show. I find her numbers disturbing, dark, and creepy, and they do not fit in with the theme of the Ball in any way. I LOVE that Lucy did NOT end up in her underwear!! It’s been 22 years, that gag was fun, and maybe resurrect it in a year or two, but it was nice. The male stripping act has got to go. So does the song We Are One. It was touching the first time, repetitive the second time, cloying the third time, and absolutely pointless the fourth time. There was a scratch my head, LOL moment, and that was Lulu and Valerie performing in the same number. Since her introduction in 2014, the powers that be have tried to insert and shoehorn this character of Valerie into the Nurses Ball, and into the fabric of Port Charles life. Memo: It’s NOT working!!!!!! Lulu and Dante are going through marriage counselling…are we expected to believe that Lulu and Valerie, the woman her husband slept with, would gladly meet up for rehearsals to rehearse a song and dance number together, and be smiling and laughing while doing it?? Nonsensical things like that take me right out of the action. Sorry, I don’t get the character of Brad, as charming and talented as Parry Shen is. This is a person who was brought on as a skeevy lab tech, who tried to blackmail Michael Corinthos, a teenage prison rape victim, into non consensual anal sex…in essence, Brad gleefully wanted to rape Michael. Now, Michael’s pseudo uncle, Lucas, is engaged to this same Brad? Where is Momma Bear Carly with her fangs out trying to destroy Brad? Bad, BAD forgetful lazy writing. I hope every time GLAAD comes out in support of this same sex couple, that they also remember that Brad was a wanna be rapist, wishing to have sex with a straight young male adult rape victim against his will. Sorry…if some fans can still be mad over the Luke and Laura rape from 37 years ago, I can still be ticked about Brad’s attempted rape of Michael from 2.5 years ago. I like this new Amy, but anchor her to someone! Make her Amy Vining’s daughter, or relative, or something. Give us a reason to care. Why does Epiphany get to perform in half the musical numbers when we see her maybe three times a year? It was hard to keep all the new hospital staff straight, as most of them were introduced with no connections to anyone currently on the canvas. It is SO sad that a show called General HGospital is so devoid of, well…hospital!! Recent attempts are encouraging…but do the names Hardy, Webber, Quartermaine, etc…ring any bells?? GThey apparently deserved a nod in the opening number…why not in continuing story?? The 2014 and 2015 Nurses Ball’s were virtual copies of each other, with nothing new to offer. The 2016 Ball,… Read more »

100 percent agree!

Harry

No, Dylan, not too hard at all. I thought your observations and commentary were insightful and spot on.
I also scratched my head at the sight of Lulu and Valerie singing and dancing next to each other. I mean, if they have to be in the same number, could they at least not be positioned next to each other?

Bonnie

The NB was to short this year and they cut corners. No dress changes, less acts. Though Dr. Orders was one of my favs next to Emma and Ned. Did anyone notice Emme, she was so good at dancing, like a cheer leader! I don’t care for Amy she is nothing like Amy Vining.

Rodd

Day three was really enjoyable for me. I really liked Dillon & Kiki’s number. RPW can really sing, which I already knew, and I was glad to hear HE can really hold her own with him. The ladies’ “Doctor’s Order” number was really great with the power-house SE leading the vocals. I wasn’t expecting Sabrina to show up, so that was a nice surprise. The three ladies sounded great together.

As someone already mentioned, there was the shadow of someone standing on the rocks near where Nicolas laid. At first, thought Nicolas was trying to rig the window so he could push Hayden out it, but then with his text (which made no sense to me at the time), and his disappearing body once someone (Jason) finally saw him, and that shadowy figure on the rocks, I’m beginning to think Nicolas set it up to make it look like Hayden killed him…Only this plot has gone wrong for Nicolas and Jason gets blamed…Oh, well, Nicolas is happy to bring down Jason, too….Just my initial theory.

And lastly, though the Ball was officially over, having Robin tell Anna she needed to say good-bye to Duke; then having Anna imagine that tango (or last dance) with him was beautiful. Can’t wait to see what is ahead for Anna!

I hated the Rap idea, the show fell short to me, just didn’t think it was that great.
the new Jake was the only part I liked with Franco. Once again Liz got crapped on and Sam looked better in her street clothing then that dull dress.

I made myself watch all in a row, Nice to see Robin with her family. Don’t get me wrong ,I love Emma,and I think she is a natural, but she cannot sing. I FF all of Carly except when Ava told her where to put the tape..I don’t like Ava but when it comes to her or carly. Ava wins. This was the worse ball yet. I don’t like Dr.O. but she is the only one on the show that can sing. I STILL get the idea that TIIC are doing their damndest to get this mess cancelled.Back to not watching.

I can’t believe the show wasted an opportunity to let Kathleen Gati perform. She’s been the best part of the last few Nurses Balls.

Patricia Nolan-Hall (Caftan Woman)
Patricia Nolan-Hall (Caftan Woman)

I was quite disappointed that there was no number for Kathleen Gati. I hope she is presented with another opportunity to sing sometime throughout the year.

I did not like the song that Hayley Erin and Robert Palmer Watkins sang, but I did like their singing. Wally and Brooklyn were adorable. She has a nice, appropriate 10-year-olds voice. “Doctor’s Orders” turned into a memorable number and nice showcase for the ladies.

Sadly, there was a lack of excitement (remember Britt and Brad dishing the red carpet while they watched on TV), a lack of cohesion in the presentation and the hall felt empty. The emotional closing with “You Are Not Alone” and Anna and Duke’s dance wrapped it all up nicely.

Lucy in her skivvies is tradition!

Why was Dr. Monica Quartermaine, chief of staff, not at the Nurses Ball?

The nurses ball 2016 , was the worse one ever. I was extremely disappointed with it .
Day 1 was the red carpet , and the very weird opening number.
Day 2 and 3 were the nurses ball but a very watered down version.
There was no Kathleen Gati performance , no kelly monoco, no haunted starlets ,
And magic milo , was very weird , as this year, they added women to their act, as dancers. wtf ???? In all , there were only 5 performances . There were no ” WOW ” moments.though I love kiki with Dillon, their performance failed to wow me
Only good parts were robin, Emma , and Anna finally saying goodbye to Duke. ( which made me cry ) . I love the nurses ball , but if they do it next year they have got to show us fans a much better show

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
