GH Nurses' Ball 2017 Part Three: The Emotional Conclusion On Lives Lost; While Lives Are On The Line!

Courtesy/ABC

The third and final installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2017 brought with it an emotional ending, juxtaposed with two major cliffhangers, as well as performances of songs from the late David Bowie and George Michael who passed away last year.

In story, after Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) admits to Anna (Finola Hughes) that he sold the chimera to Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), and that he did it for dollars to help pay for his reconstructive surgery and to set him up financially and for freedom, Anna pleads with him to let him know if he knows where it is. He tells Anna to stay out of his life and to go to Cassadine Island if she wants to retrieve it.  Valentin won’t discuss this any further with Anna as he wants to make things right with his wife, Nina (Michelle Stafford).

Meanwhile, Jake (Hudson West) sees Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) and Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) playing with the chimera canister and orders them to stop!  He even gets testy about it which Nina witnesses.

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has told Carly (Laura Wright) someone tampered with Morgan’s meds leading up to his last manic episode, as Curtis (Donnell Turner) surprises Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) with a key to his hotel room!

Onstage, Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) showed her singing and dancing prowess along with her on-screen love Wally Kurth (Ned) as their characters performed “Faith” by George Michael.

Anna has now made her way inside the ball and in front of Jason (Billy Miller), Liz (Rebecca Herbst), Andre (Anthony Montgomery) and Franco (Roger Howarth) reveals that the chimera is a biotoxin that was sold to Helena Cassadine! Jason is very worried as backstage Jake hides the chimera inside his magic trick box.

Now inching closer to the truth, Sonny and Carly corner Lucy (Lynn Herring) outside the ballroom where she admits she saw Ava (Maura West) throwing out the pill bottle in question in the trash, and that’s how she found out that Ava and Morgan were having an affair again!  Scott overhears the conversation and runs to Ava to let her know Sonny is on to her.  Meanwhile, she is about to take the stage due to her generous donation in Morgan’s name for HIV/AIDS research.

Kiki (Hayley Erin) is able to get out of her shift at GH and shows up and surprises Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) at the last minute to be a part of his performance of David Bowie’s “Modern Love”.  Robert Palmer Watkins delivered an entertaining number as a geek nerd transforming for the woman he loves.

All roads have come together for Sonny and Carly as they have figured out Ava is the one who switched Morgan’s pills. When Lucy introduces Ava to make her generous donation, she is MIA.  Ava had hightailed it to the warehouse to get some cash, and a passport and to get out of the country.

Backstage, Helena Cassadine appears and tells Jake he did not keep up his end of the bargain.  She then adds to the little boy to make all of Port Charles disappear with his magic act.

It’s time for the grand finale and a somber Lucy announces its time for the closing number of the Nurses’ Ball.  Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) and the other nurses perform Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”  The performance is done with remembrance of those who have lost their lives to AIDS, with candles encasing the stage and candles for the audience.

In one of the most heartfelt moment’s of the ball, Robin (Kimberly McCullough) appears on a monitor on-stage speaking to the attendees that while we have made strides there is more that can be done to help the fight against HIV and AIDS.  She says she is grateful to not only be alive, but expecting her second child. The audience is extremely moved as they gather around the stage as the cast including a hankie-moment shot of Genie Francis (Laura) honor those we have lost.

Courtesy/ABC

GH ends the ball with one of their effective trademarks, cutting from the action at the ball and matching it in story with the song lyrics onstage as we witness: Ava packing a gun as Sonny and Carly find her, Curtis sweeping Jordan into his arms as the two are finally going to make love, and finally, Jake appears and tells his mother, Elizabeth, that he is ready to do his magic act now. We fade to black.

What did you think of the final installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2017? Were you moved by the closing number? Are you excited to see how the chimera and the Ava storylines develop? What was your favorite moment in the final episode this year? Comment below!

Some of it was an improvement-music over last year but it didnt feel anything like a real fundraiser…and Monica and Lucas not there-people connected to the hospital? but of course Sonny/Carla and Nina had to be with all their drama?…No Dr. Liesel played by an actress with musical talent???…it was better than last year with some good music but one who never tuned in before wouldnt know it was an aids fundraiser..i would liked the opening been a black and white set of the original nurses station with the old theme and characters acting like Steve, Jesse and Audrey-it begins… Read more »

Devastating, Shay., no Dr. O….another one gone….another one bites the dust ( my beautiful Freddie).
Is KG on her way out?

On another note, Shay; the Chimera symbol is finally starting to make sense. As I had said, a Chimera is an illusion, made up of many parts, I likened it to Frankenstein’s monster–made of many different ‘human parts’. Anna told Andre that Valentin’s explosive creation consisted of many strains, thus, the name Chimera.
I am, somewhat, pacified. LOL.

Tell me about it, jimh!!!! I’m still totally steamed that the highly-artistic skills of Miss Kathleen Gati were once again ignored in favor of more amateurish acts….This woman is a phenomenally talented performer and should be given a platform for sharing both her acting and musical gifts whenever possible!

Celia
Guest

Valentin telling Anna to take a hike and not look back?
No, seriously. I thought Robin’s speech on HIV was very moving, albeit I did not watch when she and her then, boyfrind ( was it Stone?) went through a very dark time.
It was the best conclusion to ‘celebrating life’ by raising money, the reason for the Nurses’ Ball.

Shay

Honestly, the only NB “appearance” I thoroughly enjoyed was Helena’s! I still hope we will see her—sooner rather than later—“somewhere, out there!” Perhaps on Cassadine Island????

Shay
Guest
Shay

That was a nice touch with Robin’s taped appearance, CeeCee, which leads me to suggest that next year if the showrunners once again feel compelled to put on this extremely pared-down event, how about more of those video cameos from those too many unheard from legacy characters we still know and love??? It would seem at this point to be a pipedream to ever have them actually revisit Port Charles in the flesh, but even a filmed update from our old favorites would be better than nothing, and shouldn’t put too much of a dent in the obviously reduced budget.

Celia, The 90’s was when General Hospital was on fire, with Sonny and Brenda, Ned and Lois, the Quartermaine’s, and Robin and Stone. If you are interested and have the time, watch a few segments on YouTube of Robin and Stone. I wish that the TPTB did a few flashbacks of Robin and Stone during this year’s Nurse’s Ball, especially since Robin was not really able to attend. Their love story and his death was told so beautifully. Claire Labine was a writer and producer then, I believe. During her era, the show was just unstoppable.

Celia

Thank you so much, dmr. That’s what I hear…GH had the best cast, at that time, and the most thrilling stories.
I did ‘educate’ myself some, but, as the old adage goes, “you hadda be there”, albeit Shay is the greatest narrator. She’s my main source. LOL.

I’m still wondering where all this Valentin stuff is headed, too, CeeCeeGirl!….So many questions, so few answers! I made mention on a different thread of the need for Nik’s return since his absence leaves a huge hole in the Cassadine clan’s saga( in response to one of your posts about Tyler Christopher…hope it makes it online! I swear, I have written so many detailed replies to you over the past few days in reference to certain characters, and practically none has materialized. Ditto for those sent to Timmmbo…..you two must think I’m ignoring you, but I’m not!!!!) As for Sean… Read more »

@CeeCee….These days I find nothing about GH to be cohesive or pacifying…it’s just one sorry mess after another!!! Although I initially had high hopes for James Patrick Stuart’s Valentin and whatever mystery and mayhem he could possibly bring to the GH canvas, I’m now just as bored with his saga as all the others….especially since he was tethered to the downright unnecessary Nina instead of playing up on the obvious, off-the-charts chemistry he shared with Finola Hughes and her Alex/Anna duo. Soooo…basically we’re still stuck at status quo. But speaking of that Mary Shelley creation, there was an excellent British… Read more »

I feel you, Shay. I was content with where the Valentin story was going, but, the confusion still persists in my head. I must have a mental block. I am having a hard time following where all this is going? Is Valentin a bad guy or not? Was Nik’s death contrived, with Valentin as an accomplice? Was it all for show? And, now he is off to jail? Yet, Anna feels remorse for his plight? But, but, but….didn’t he just help abort/stop the Chimera’s dissemination of its bio-chemical poison? That should count for something!! Moving on…LOL.

How do have a Nurses’ Ball without one doctor performing?

We got what we wished — no striptease!

Are we going to get an Ava on a meat hook moment? Carly forcing her to sign over all rights to Avery? Gee, Carly, AJ doesn’t look so bad compared to what Ava’s done. Of course, she’d never admit that.

Me. So sick of those men with their cookie cutter, waxen hairless chests.
They do nothing for me.
Also happy there was no cheesy Sabrina and a dress-less Lucy.
My only complaint was no Dr Oberet.
The incredibly talented KG gets almost no storyline all year long and her one chance to shine and to strut her stuff is the Nurse’s Ball. What a waste.
I am not only disappointed for us viewers, I am disappointed for her. She must have been so sad about not being included.

Shay

No Magic Milo and his corresponding “Wands!”…check. No Lucy Coe striptease…check. No Alexis in her usual choice of cleavage-baring eveningwear….CHECK!!!! (Double check…) Overall, three great signs of improvement from previous NB events! Please continue these trends next year, along with employing some of the other suggestions loyal GH fans have offered up in these reviews/critiques for the 2017 effort.

Steve, Sonny’s actions are always justified. Remember when Carly drugged AJ and poured vodka all over him and left him in an alley? Somewhat similar to what Ava did to Morgan. Ava used Morgan’s illness to try to cause him to have a breakdown. Carly used AJ’s illness to also benefit herself. Yet, Sonny and Carly conveniently forget all of their past transgressions. Honestly, Morgan was such a useless character. He was an entitled, spoiled brat. Saint Sonny, the wonderful father that he is, slept with his son’s lover, and killed his other son’s biological father.

So, I know everyone loved Valentine’s number, but the final performance was IMO the best performance of the entire show… with the opening number being a close number of course that is because Emma outshines almost every adult at that performance! She is definitely a performer that one!

I know most all enjoyed the the dance and song and I’m glad you enjoyed it. Loved seeing Helena once again! I wish she will have some great scenes but I doubt that will happen 🙁 A good thing; the pill story is at its end I can only hope the mourning of Morgan will finally end, also.

su, I agree–Ned and Olivia were good–and a fun number. Agree again: Chimera a total fail. How may holes can you count in that story line?

Celia
Guest
Celia

You’re right, su. The Chimera story was a debacle. Obviously, it isn’t going to go off. There still is a lot of confusion surrounding Jake and Helena. If she’s in Jakie’s head; if he’s hypnotized or in the arms of Morpheus ( as I mentioned in a dream-like-state), who sent him the canister?
Well, at least the name makes sense to me, now. Is this the end of it? The writers can’t simply leave it like this, can they? Sure they can. They did just that with Flukie Lukie.

I loved Valentin’s number. I thought it was the best number in the show. Honestly, I thought his version of the song was better than Billy Joel’s! It had so much heart poured into it! Ned and Olivia were cute, too. I always love Ned as Eddie Maine. The other numbers, ugh. They kind of made me cringe..
Sick to death of chasing scarecrows in the woods, watching the kid draw, and this damn chimera. Who cares? SO dumb.

Actually, Timmmbo, I don’t think Lulu could have found five people who cared enough to go to such lengths to attend the NB! Let’s face it, this once exciting and glittering high- class event has become a decidedly-downmarket “do.” (Or rather, “don’t!”…..)

Lizzy’s dress was the best one, in my opinion.

Yes, Lulu was Cinderella’s coach and a giant pumpkin at the same time.
Was it absolutely imperative that Lulu be there in that hideous dress from Maternity Hell?

PS What is “Liesel” doing still on the show??!! Away!
Just how many evil characters can TPTP put on one show?

Shay
Guest
Shay

At least Liesel is “exquisitely evil,” Nancy! (On par with Constance Towers’ icy cold Helena!) Kathleen Gati shows how it should be done, and she also has demonstrated impressive comedic chops and immense musical skills. This lady is one talented and versatile performer and why she has been allowed to languish away in the GH “records room” instead of seeing some action front-and-center on the small screen is a question that really begs to be asked-and-answered, especially in light of the fact she has been unceremoniously denied a richly-deserved place on the NB stage for two consecutive years running.

Overall one of the better NB’s- so glad did not have to see men in their underwear — my main pet peeve was the editing. For example we had Valentin and Anna having this really dramatic conversation back stage– then there is this musical number and Anna is sitting there beside Andre smiling away during the performance— then commercial then Anna and Valentin are backstage still in conversation– another one was Sonny just tells Carly that Morgan pills were tampered– commercial– musical act– Sonny and Carly are there smiling enjoying the number– commercial– back to the conversation– Really Carly finds… Read more »

That’s a even better idea– have one episode focused solely on the performances instead of dragging it out three days– avoid all the silly stop and go, stop and go which results in problems in continuity– from your lips to FV ear’s — show only will make the whole NB far more enjoyable as a once a year treat and break from the “drama”

I don’t know; I think the show in general has been really, really good…I’m enjoying the entire chimera story and the intertwined stories. The nurses ball however…was lacking for me. Seemed like less entertainment than in the past. Individually, I liked all the numbers. I was a little disappointed in Kiki/Dillon. They were soooo cute together last year. This year Kiki did nothing but dance around Dillon. Would have liked them to have interacted more. Also missed seeing Franco, Liz, Sam, Molly, Griffin up on stage. Seems like they just skimped on the acts. Very impressed, though, as always by… Read more »

I think he’s got a great voice as evidenced by last year and this year (and his own music). He blew this number out of the park! The boy can dance too!!! I still think, though, this didn’t showcase “kiki’s” talents. She’s gorgeous, adorable, evokes joy when she smiles that dimpled smile. And I agree, they light up the room!

Amazing post, Jay Trotter. You never disappoint. As I said, Ava, Carly and Sonny are criminals—I see no difference within the inner recesses of these blood-sucking characters.
But, as artists, I have yet to find a match running shoulder to shoulder with Maura.

And so, the redemption of Valentin starts. All he needed was a bullet through his viscera: behold a hero!!
I can’t say I’m not happy. Go Valentin!!

Spoke too soon, did I? LOL.
I think Jason a d Valentin should partner up in fighting crime. They were soectacular together at the NB.

They seem to be going in the no clothes off for anybody as witnessed by the lack of Magic Milo dancers, too. Lucy has a great body for any age! But the “act” got played out. I think, from the small sampling here that viewers might have been happy that the male dance routine was cut, but I liked it. There was justification for it in that it was a traditional (well, I think it’s just been a few years…not sure) dance number that was sexy yet all in good fun.

Once the affair with Dante ended, they seeed to forget that Valerie is a Spencer. One scene of her sitting at the table with Bobbie and Carly would have sufficed.

I agree with you, Steve, re Valerie. This Spencer girl is in limbo. Why not explore her past; her paternity? As uninforment and ignorant as I am on GH’s history, I would love following that storyline.
TPTB have enough Spencers in their collective laps; get busy…I’d rather watch that than follow an elusive, pointless Chimera story.
I assume all the mythical hoopla was a means to connect Valentin to Helena? Was he under her influence when he shot Nik ( if he’s really dead) and Kevin? Where is he, anyway? Laura is so patient. LOL.

Carly is the biggest hypocrite in PC. She and Sonny did horrendous things to AJ with little remorse.

Even looking at it from another angle, after seeing all Ava has done (including playing a key role in AJ’s death), Carly should now realize AJ wasn’t THAT bad in hindsight.

Poor Avery, everyone related by blood has done some horrible things (except cousins Lucas and Leo). Reserve time with Dr. Maddox. (Oh wait, that didn’t work so well for her brother)

When Ron C left, the edict from Varni and Valentini was that MB and LW were the stars of the show. Michael quickly reverted to Sonny’s milquetoast lapdog and Dante again turned a blind eye to his father’s misdeeds. One of the best things Ron did during his tenure was his approach to the Sonny character. For a good while, Sonny played a supporting role in Connie’s story. While the decision to kill AJ for the final time was misguided, the payoff of the fractured relationship of Sonny and Michael was well written and acted. Sonny even went to Pentonville,… Read more »

JELLY did it, the Nurses Ball was good and sometimes great! ALL the musical numbers were great! I loved JPS’s rendition of an album cut from Billy Joel. BUT, I equally loved Wally and Lisa singing “Faith.” AND Robert Palmer and Haley doing David Bowie was awesome! I am probably in the minority but I didnt miss Lisel or the hunks stripping.

I didn’t miss the striptease, either. The viewers should turn MORGAN into a drinking game! Sick to death of hearing about that useless character. I didn’t care for the actor or the character while he was on-air, and care less about him, while he is off-air. Such a punk.

How does Charlotte stay so thin? Every time we see Lulu interact with her, she pries her with sugar. After the NB, she mentions she has more cookies she ate on her last visit. When Lulu picked her up from school, they went to the MC for ice cream sundaes. And they first bonded over scones!

Valentin is no better, sending the girls for chocolate cake at the NB and buying them cookies at Kelly’s.

Please give that girl some carrots or a healthy snack once in a while 🙂

Ha ha ha! Steve, RIGHT?
One day Charlotte had cookies and hot chocolate in Nina’s office, then she went off to have hot chocolate and cookies at the Metro Court then she went to Kelly’s and also had cookies and hot chocolates. Her “papa” came to pick her up and said they’d go home to have hot chocolate and cookies at home.
This was four times within an hour’s time!

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
