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

Courtesy/ABC

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.

The guy from the parking lot trying to hold a gun on Anna Devane was almost laughable. He’s probably the mist complained about actor/character since Courtney.

Wake up ABC, 4th place should be your indicator that something is wrong — that is, if you want this show to survive.

GH falling to the last should be an eyeopener to ABC, a hint to clean house.
It will be interesting to see what will happen.(( most likely nothing will be done.

Well, Harry, once again we disagree. Love Peter, love Wes’s portrayal and I thought he was excellent,especially when he found out Anna was his mother. Great emotion-laden, tense scene.

And, wrote u a long reply to your comment to me regarding Anna, Finn, Alexis. Frustrating that Michael had to lose a lot of his comments transferring to this site but, Wow! I couldn’t have disagreed with u more. I think we should reward ourselves with ice cream…or a merlot…each time we DO agree!

However, glad u found your way to our new “home” here! I thought we had all been evicted!

Hi Rebecca1…Yea! I found my way to the new site. Like you I really like Peter/Wes. Have from the beginning. Not sure why some others have a problem with him except the idea they keep pushing about his possible audition in the parking lot.

And I think Anna/Finola is doing a great job trying balance the guilt she feels about being his absentee mother along with her training and professionalism as a WSB agent.

I also like Lucy (again always have) except when she wanted to try to sell GH and turn it into condos. She’s a real survivor.

As for Ava, seems going good isn’t working so well for her. Insecurities and suspicions just don’t go away…they are just internal scars that surgery couldn’t heal.

Not liking Jason so much right now. Like Ava he just can’t shake some me old bad habits by threatening to shoot Peter. But I guess I have to allow his lost 5 years as he lived them to make him want to shoot first and probably not ask questions afterwards, living up to his name…Stone Cold.

Hi, Rose! Good to “see you again!” 😉

There is a lot of Peter love; maybe not on this site but I’ve been peeking in on others and he definitely has his share of fans; both the character and the actor. He didn’t actually have his audition in the parking lot; I believe he and Laura ran into Frank in the parking lot and I guess Frank invited him to audition for the role. I have no doubt he got it due to his soap background and his fit for the role. I like him more and more, especially now that his emotions have come to the surface. I’m afraid, though, that his “Faison” may come out if Maxi never forgives him. He seems to be falling in love with her and that’s the one one rejection that could tip the scales. I REALLY want her to forgive him.

Lynn Herring (Lucy) is looking fantastic! She’s changed her hair back to blonde and it looks great. The darker hair was so not flattering. And, she was less “dramatic/annoying” this year as host of The Ball. I can’t stand an “effected” voice.

Wasn’t Mike heartbreaking? And I have to admit when Sonny helped him out; well that scene was beautiful. Really touching.

Love Ava. Couldn’t have been happier when she got Avery out of Carly’s clutches and I’ loving the takedown of Carly. Won’t last but enjoy it while I can.

@Harry….Absolutely! Peter Parking Lot has already taken up too much space on the GH canvas…the sooner he is gone, the better! However, I truly loved seeing Scorpio and his legendary snark back in the thick of things! If it weren’t for Anna and Robert’s storyline, this NB would have been a complete and utter waste of viewing time. Hope he sticks around for awhile!

Yeah… only two downsides to killing off Parking Lot Heiny….

1) Anna Devane would have to lose a kid.

2) I would have to put up with his whiny ass in Hell.

I found the 3rd part of the Nurses Ball to be quite entertaining.
I especially liked Mike and Sonny..
Max/Mike was really good he was my favourite act of the Ball.

Celia

Respect and lovevyour words of caution, Steve….agreed!!! I should be moved to tears by Peter’s tears at the pier, but nay!!!!
What I finally realized is that Jason is a true killer and seeks revenge. Scary…and ‘dumdrop’ Sam says, ” Don’t, Jason….too many witnesses”???? Is that the only reason she wants him not to shoot? Not for sparing a human life, no matter what? At this point, Peter was not a threat to anyone.
This, also, confirms that Sam knows of what Jason is capable—-that he’s a few cards short of a full deck with a gun…loaded and cocked. She knows it, and accepts it.

Jovin
Jovin

That has been my argument for 20 plus years!!! Jason is nothing but a brain damaged, vicious, cold blooded, murdering thug without an ounce of remorse for all the people he has killed. Him and Sonny are two peas in a pod…always right and no matter how many lives and families they destroy, they are always seen as misunderstood heroes. Notice how Jason only shows any signs of life is when he is going after someone with the possibility of bloodshed or violence?? I am still praying it will be revealed that Drew was really the Jason we watched grow up…the Jason who was in the car accident back in 1996, and that he was replaced with Burton’s Drew. It would explain so much!

Celia
Celia

Thank you for your comment, Jovin. I am getting a clearer picture now….never witnessed the Sonny-Jason phenomenon……chills the blood.
I am not well-versed in Jason’s accident of 1996…only what I read. So, you think he could turn out to be Drew? Interesting!!
I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes, but these writers need to think of something to grab our attention…..if truth be told? This Peter August-Anna/mommy-Valentin-Faison thing is pathetic.
Yeah….anything other than this and Lulu’s perennially startled eyes will do….

Caleb
Caleb

I keep wishing to find out the same thing. It would make sense .. Drew and Monica have a natural mother/son relationship and Jason Morgan woke up not knowing any of the Qs. Maybe he didn’t know them because of the accident, he had never met them. Hope the show goes in this direction. I too, have hated the Jason Morgan character for 20 years. And no amount of softening him up to be Robin’s friend will change that.

Yes, Ava was excellent when she did her song but I still say that my favorite was Epiphany opening the show with “Everyday People” at the start of the ball.

Jovin
Jovin

Ava won me over!!!! It was her “mad as hell and Im not gonna take it anymore” moment. Well, she had one of those last year, but that got her face torched so it didn’t go as planned. This was her public moment, and it was brilliant! She was truly a rockstar!! I liked her and Griffin at first, and the relationship has helped her esteem, but its over now. She is beyond him. It is a waste of time and talent flto have Ava just constantly begging for his love and forgiveness. And the thought of a Kiki Griffin Ava triangle is just unsettling and gross. Kiki and the new cop could be good together. Ava needs to be in a position of power on this show. She needs to be part of a power couple…a couple who accepts the other…flaws and all. Think vintage Keith and Gina from Santa Barbara! Maura West is brilliant when playing grasping and desperate….but it gets tireseome. It would have more impact if it was more sporadic. She needs to be mayor! Or the mayor’s wife. Or the DA’s wife. Or she needs to be the head of a major corporation. She needs to be out fom the threat of Sonnt at all times. That has run its course. I want to see her win for once…and for it to happen a lot. I want to see her feeling happy and safe for a while too. Give us some reasons for why she became so angry and needing to lash out by killing someone! She geew up surrounded by violent mobster men. That had to have affected her! Maybe she was passed around among her fathers friends like a mob moll. Who knows what she went through as a female child growing up in the mob? We have been going through 5 years of Franco’s Redemption…lets see some of Ava’s. Let her do something really big where she saves someone’s life, or is a hero in town for some reason that will endear some people to her! Number one on that list should have been Jason! Everyone calls him so loyal!!!! He is loyal to two people only…his handlers Sonnny and Carly. If he was loyal to those who helped him, he should be eternally thankful to Ava, as she repeatedly risked her life to help him get out of Russia!! Besides that, who the hell is he….a murderer for hire….to judge her?? I think it would be awesome, if nothing else, that Jason issueda stern warning to Sonny “She saved my life, I owe her my life and my freedom so just lay off her from now on.” That could be Ava’s get out of jail free card. Could you imagine if Jason and Ava had some sort of fling or relationship?!?! Carly would flip her lid and then implode!! So many possibilities for a newly empowered Ava!! Give us the reasons and we will root for Ava the rockstar!!

Celia
Celia

What can I say, Jovin?…..once again, your detailed account of what Ava should or is to be piques my interest….. on the mark. The first thing she needs to do is rid herself of Griffin. He’s a little boy with so many ‘cradle’ issues….it befuddles me why he strayed from the priesthood.
As far as I’m concerned, that was his calling….but he had to find himself? Perhaps he’s gay….??
Is he in denial?? The Church is no longer in his future, no matter how the writers may spin it……once disrobed, a Roman Catholic priest cannot go back….only the Pope may absolve him. And, considering how ‘free-minded’ Pope Francis is ( incredibly heretical for devout Catholic Church officials and laymen), Griffin could ask for holy dispensation, LOL.
Seriously, Jovin…..I love your idea; a very provoking thought….Jason, as a reward for saving his life could get Sonny off Ava’s back.
Furthermore, Jason and Ava would be perfect together. Neither could be either tamed or leashed!!
Sometimes, h*ll does freeze over.

@Jovin : “Way to go” plug plug plug @Jovin words. AND per @Celia: “…your detailed account of what Ava should”

Maura West talent has yet to scratch the surface. imagine if she was truly written for. Yeah, she’s not a legacy character.. but it’s been chewed spitten left for dead … that they have to cull from somewhere. May as well be Ava. who as a standalone.. CARRIES THIS SHOW.

agree w/2 things:

Ava and Griffin have run their course. I love her w/Scotty.. but the show MUST give her power and leverage ,somewhere.

LOVE that she’s out of the clutches of Sonny.. so she has shared custody of Avery. that’s enough for me. it’s just gobsmacking that at least the writers got some thing right. it’s not about Sonny any more.

have to throw this in … “I have NOT seen Laura Wright Carly” for upwards of a week. counting the weekend. Uproarious glee. is she whacked out in her jail cell… is she having any epiphany? is she learning how to walk in heels? is all that quiet hitting her nerve endings? be still my heart.

Sonny needs to get her out… and they just up and leave for a long long long vacation… perhaps taking Mike w/ to a new facility…

it seemed like the Nurses Ball facilitated the same old same old back to stories.

reuniting Julian with Alexis
the WORST being : watching Finola Hughes spiral as Anna. her life is not complete with Michael Easton and Wes Ramsey. how utterly gutless of GH writers to ram rod any and all the audience with this crap.

this writing team plus Frank Valentini SHOULD HAVE TO ANSWER for spiraling to the bottom…

all I have to say is @DAYS Ron Carlivati… with all the same cast… plus Tyler Christopher… in less than a year… WON THE triple crown… PLUS supplanted GH.

gotta love this – ideally will GH step up to the plate.. and offer something new besides the dullard . this is going to be very telling… how will the pendulum swing… Frank Valentini EGO. or just drive at healthy competition and challenge DAYS.

I LOVED Ava “song and Dance” no to sonny and griffin started right.

Celia
Celia

Oh, Pattick….your flair with the plume, however intricate, never disappoints.
Agree on all counts…..well, except Tyler…..not a good performance, in my view. Comparatively speaking? He’s at the bottom of the totem pole for me.
Anna has been mired in/with the wrong son, and coupled with the wrong lover ( that is, Finn; if this ‘tragedy’ speeds forward).
Finn and Alexis are soooo good together. Their spontaneity gave me chills. I had written something about it, but, I guess it was lost in the shuffle……the Julian and Alexis ‘deity’ can never be again…..he will be the death of her—literally!!
Carly and Sonny disappearing for a long, long while is very enticing…..’twould be a very salubrious ‘coup’ for Port Charles, Patrick.
On the other hand, Mike would be stolen from us. His presence has become such an important part of the show. He’s adorable—a breath of fresh air!!
Yet, their absence would give Nelle the opportunity to turn her life around—-tabula rasa!!

LOL. I access this site everyday. I just don’t post as often as I used to. I must say it was QUITE jarring to see the overhaul and thought I’d accessed an alternate site of Mr.Fairman’s. Then when I got knocked back teeing to post a reply on DAYS overtaking GH I thought I’d done something horribly wrong. I almost didn’t check again today but now I’m glad I did. Fantastic new look and extended coverage of primetime. I like it.

Too bad the networks can’t put forth this type of effort-like Michael Fairman has on his website-into televising the Daytime Emmys. But that’s because Mr.Fairman TRULY respects the genre. Oh well. Que Sera Sera.

I have watched our beloved General Hospital since 1984-ish, the “Frisco and Felicia” days. I remember when the show was full of “love in the afternoon,” adventure, and romance. I have watched every Nurse’s Ball (from the 90’s and beyond). Unfortunately, I have not been able to watch this year’s Nurse’s Ball in its entirety. The show has been diminished to “Heinrich’s Hospital” and I am tired of it. Wes Ramsey is at best, a one-note “actor” who thinks he is acting in a Shakespearean play. The entire cast has been diminished in order to prop-up the boyfriend of a lead actress. The majority of twitter followers dislike this storyline (and the actor) and are furious with TPTB at General Hospital. Laura Wright acts like a high school cheerleader boasting about her “handsome fella”-I guess love IS blind.

Rodd
Rodd

I respectfully disagree with you. I think Wes can act and proved that way back on GL. I think it’s more the character people don’t like than the actor. And I don’t believe him getting this role is nepotism. He and Laura are dating ~ big deal! He’s been an accomplished actor for years.

Patrick
Patrick

I respectfully disagree: I don’t know what shenanigans behind closed door does. I’m certain Frank Valentini w/ his co-horts.. cooked up . he thought the STARS aligned with Laura Wright and Maurice Benard… played his cards.. and was certain Steve Benard was the 2nd coming of his belonging in any thing. this spiral is ALL in his face.. he knows this. hey.. as “nelle” acknowledged at the emmys .. it was thanks to LW that Nelle was hired. now it’s at LW behest.. that Wes Ramsey was hired… I know there is a new thread with this gag me winsome TWOSOME how are now parading themselves.. whilst their show is no LAST

Wes Ramsey REELS are emasculating. ALL the ogling of Maxie reeks . GH writers continue to make Maxie look ditzed .

Peter August… now Anna Son… how dour… how unmissed he will be. all the beats of how Peter withstood Faison… matters none

case in point: if Wes Ramsey cannot even make an impact with Lulu and Maxie.. respectfully are not top of the line. then how can it be possible that Wes Ramsey AND Finola Hughes ARE ?

I agree with you, Rodd. I, too, like Wes and he does have a lot of followers/fans. As for the character, I’m loving “him” too. I think it’s a great story. People complain that stories are recycled and now that we have a totally fresh one they complain about this, too. The complaints get tiresome. Tedious.

Maura West’s performance as Ava was incredible. She stole the show for me, and is there anything La West cannot do? Like, whoa!! I need a download of that song immediately. Also, Mr. Fairman, congratulations on your newly re-done website. I am in love with it and find it quite refreshing! Keep up the fantastic work!

LLL

Yes, yes, yes to Ava! Her performance and Mike/Sonny were the best of the ball. Ava owned that stage.

Also, kudos to the new website Mr. Fairman. Quite a step up from the last one. It blew me away. Well done.

This was the best part of the Nurses’ Ball; I agree. Our of all the songs, I think Mike’s was the most touching. I liked that characters like Sonny and Ava got pulled into it this year. I wish more of the regular characters would perform.

Did anyone notice that this is the second year that Mac and Felicia were out of town during the Ball? That strikes me as odd.

Also, I feel so bad for the hospital staff. The nurses who are on regularly, that being only Elizabeth, did nothing this year. They pulled Felix, Epiphany, and Bobbie out of mothballs to perform. I feel for them. And what doctor performed? None, as I recall. I would really like them to have more characters say “yes” to Lucy next year. This Ball is a real treat for the fans.

Steve

As daytime newbies, Max Gail and Vernee Watson are probably less expensive than John York and Kristina Wagner, as we got 3 days of Mike and Stella and none of M&F.

The writers sure like to send the Scorpios out of town (same reason they didn’t attend Kevin and Laura’s wedding). As their remodeled restaurant just reopened in record time, one would figure they deserve a vacation 🙂

Patrick
Patrick

shucks… I thought the same thing… a job is a job ? I was thinking this whilst Epiphany and Felix were giving their all… singing and dancing … saving face, no less ? I adore these characters.. and it stings a belittle

Max Gail’ Mike: I am smitten and impressed with the MAN the actor; Mike the character… his song… dang it… I loved the Frank Sinatra # Summer Winds. PLUS to prop Max Gail contribution gave him a full band/orchestra in the background going along with his pure enjoyment and giving his mind a song and dance. dang it he’s a character actor to mind

ps: it’s criminal to leave out Mac and Felicia. CRIMINAL.

I thought the Nurses Ball was pretty good this year. It wasnt extravagant and the sets were cheap BUT they moved the show along quite well and mixed in good stories at a nice pace in between acts. Lucy is not needed. Her time is done. Scott, why was he even there. I feel bad for Kin. And the Llama, what was the purpose? It wasnt even in the show. Talk about wasting money on a show that claims it has very little to spend?

The best: Sonny stepping in for Mike. It was brilliant for the show to have Mike think he was with a band, forgetting his lyrics and being lost only to have Sonny, who is not outwardly personable sing with his father. It was one of the sweetest things I have seen on any TV show in a long time! I know the Sonny haters will hate but you have to give Maurice credit here!

Secondly, Valentin was good again. He mesmerized Nina and captivated the crowd. He is a whimpering villain. Thats how I see him.

And third, Chase was solid. He is new to the show. Its a tough spot to be in. I would love to see him come to Kiki’s rescue and them be a couple.

The bad: I wont singe anyone since thats not nice BUT Maura is a better actor than a singer! I was surprised but mostly elated that none of the kids grated my ears with their high pitched “Singing” BUT the little girl who plays Charlotte, she is so full of potential, I was surprised she didnt do a song.

In conclusion, I want to thank Olay and I want to thank Robert F—ing Scorpio for stealing the show! He was awesome!

Hello, “Sir Timmmbo!” We are most definitely on the same page regarding that still-got-it superspy, Robert Scorpio! His was the only NB act which held me in thrall. Well done, Scorpio! (Aka, WSB agent #CK8!”) Quite frankly, I found the rest of the event to be an utterly shambolic mess, totally cheap, tacky and far too informal..no consistency whatsoever, save for the fact it was consistently awful!!! It seemed as thought the show’s focus was entirely lost! Given the NB’s original meaning, why was the “Pioneer Award” not presented to Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake for her research work or even, God forbid, Sonny, since he has done much to fund this cause? To just arbitrarily hand this honor to Alexis out of thin air was simply an attempt to once again glorify this ridiculous character….totally unnecessary! Same for Mike and his Rat Pack-inspired tune….yes, Max was adorable, but this fundraiser was not for Alzheimer’s disease….Lastly, Lucy and her llama were patently absurd, as per usual for this annoyingly hammy hostess…time to find a new emcee and send this one off into the sunset on her latest pet of choice!!!!

Patrick

boffo ! : “…far too informal..no consistency whatsoever, save for the fact it was consistently awful!!! ” I thought this year, by far, since the inception of bringing back the Nurse’ Ball… flopped

1. I enjoyed watching Oscar and Josslyn.. no matter how awful they sounded.. the love they share is potent. I am so adoring , Kim and Drew , potential pairing? is that what happened ? Kim told Julian to go to Alexis? and what ??? i’m going to be sick.. if this is what GH writers are intending. so that the GH writers are now going to give Kim and Drew a shot. which I don’t mind at all.. because this winsome threesome.. are top shelf. Kim /Drew/ Oscar. this show is so dull.. the writers have done this, irregardless of their agenda.. let this be

stink

Frank Valentini GET THIS .. stink on shit

the Max Gail show.. wowed me.. with his Frank Sinatra number complete with band/orchestra in his mind.. wowed

to justly serve his contribution.. to the dead on arrival Sonny and Carly.. who did nothing to truly support Mike. it was all self serving and went nowhere.. had it not been for Stella.. giving with Mike, impact and meaning of

it was a cause celeb moment of Mike and his best gal.. that pulled heart string

Ava number… : I do not have faith in the GH writers… to give Ava any kind of life… dag! peeps read @Jovin write up of Maura West. this lady truly deserves all the REEL time wasted on the dullard.

I mean REALLY.. whats to look forward to Sonny and Carly now? does she need an ibuprofen? PLUS her anxiety spells… will she finally ACT ? is Carly even an afterthought.. she’s been gone a week.. I celebrate this

what about Sonny.. nothing changed with his relationship with his father… giving Mike memories of what his life once was

that’s supposed to affect his fans? how humane – what a gesture – how magnanimous of Maurice Benard to reach

Sonny and Carly are not acted well

NOW is the time to give US – less is more and cull from the canvas of : what all the posts read… GH may have the best cast …

what a wasteland… ratings prove .. that spiraling to last place .. happened for a reason

Frank Valentini w/Shelley , Jean, Chris ARE NOT even in the same league of the three other shows

Beautiful, Patrick!!!!
Just one thing; naproxen works ten times better than ibuprofin. LOL.

Too much lip syncing and auto tuning in these allegedly “live” performances. The actual singers were probably Epiphany, Ned, Val the Bastard ,and Mike. (Sonny was actually trying to sing too, but not as good as his dad. No problem.. he’s a mobster and a coffee importer. Doesn’t need a third career)

Joss might have actually been singing. Oscar was so bad at it that he couldn’t have been lip syncing.

The rest of the “performances” were as fake as a Cheeto campaign speech.

Loved Mike & Sonny’s duet. This is the only storyline that I am enjoying (along with Alexis and Julian). Parking Lot Pete ruined this year’s Nurse’s Ball. Loved seeing Tristan Rogers back-a true vet!

Ok so Ava sings her stupid song what was it you don’t own me?? Two episodes later she is begging Baby Griffin to take her back !!!! Yep we are really rolling on this soap and none of you dare to tell me support the soaps I owe them nothing you write crap I am going to call you on it and quite frankly I could care less if they have a tin cup in the street looking for nickels while the rest of us are working our butts off not begging to keep our jobs! Take a seat!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Aiden Continues To Be A Target For Bullies; Oscar Receives His Death Sentence

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, the long-running ABC daytime drama series, is certainly taking a look at some key issues of our time in regards to young children and teens.

When Liz leaves to meet with Willow, about Aiden, Franco and Aiden bake some cookies, where Franco is impressed and surprised to find out how excellent Aiden is in the kitchen and baking assorted kinds of cookies. When Franco asks why Aiden never told anyone that he liked baking so much, Aiden said he just didn’t want to be laughed at again.

At Charlie’s, Liz meets up with Willow. The teacher informs Liz that Aiden still prefers to avoid the other students and may not feel safe around them for a very long time.  Liz questions and ponders why Aiden has a target target on his back. Willow explains how kids can be cruel in an understatement, she adds that Aiden needs to find his true identity.

After Cam’s emotional day surrounding Joss and Oscar, he heads home.  Liz and Cam get their around the same time and are astounded by Aiden’s cookies! Franco tells Liz they just need to let Aiden be Aiden. Then when Cam and Aiden hang out on the couch, and after asking for the password to the iPad, Cameron opens it, and there is a heartbreaking message that reads, “Get Lost Gayden.”   Cam immediately closes it and hugs his little brother.

What happens when you are a teenager who should be living life and having fun with years to look forward to?  That is the other storyline, GH has been taking at look at.  Kim tells Terry that Oscar has questions now that the medical trial has failed, and he needs the truth, no matter how difficult it may be to hear.  On is way to meet with Terry and his mom, Oscar runs into Alexis and tells her he needs to finish his will.  Alexis is heartbroken to hear this news.

Once with Terry and Kim, Oscar asks a few questions about the what to expect as his condition worsens before his death, how to prepare for it, and how long he has to live. Terry explains n some cases headaches get worse, and that he may have difficulty with his balance. Then, Terry delivers the devastating news, he could live as long as 6-7 months … or as little as 6 more weeks.  Oscar is shaken.

Kim hands him a bucket list to-do book and calendar to go to set up all the things he wants to do before he dies.  He heads to meet Josslyn in the hospital chapel, where they pen in things in the book to do together.  Monica and Kim share a moment about losing their children, before they pass away.  Kim does not know what to do next.  She decides to head to the “Charlie’s” to see Julian; while Alexis has already told Julian to help Kim through this tough time, no matter his feelings towards her kissing Drew on New Year’s Eve.

Finally, Griffin removes Anna’s bandages and her eyesight has returned following her surgery.  Finn tells Anna the virus that caused the blindness has never been seen in North America.  Anna wonders if it was given to her while abroad?  Could this be something Cassandra did to her, or something, or someone else?

So, if GH does this story right about Aiden being bullied for his differences, it could definitely send a powerful message to many in the viewing audience and bring attention to young LGBTQ youth who are trying to be their authentic selves, if this is the story.   What do you think of Aiden’s plight now?  What did you think of how Oscar’s death sentence was handled?  Who or what caused Anna’s temporary blindness?  Share your thoughts on these storylines via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Goes Blind … What Is The Cause? Franco Is Kicked To The Curb As “Kevin’s” Patient

Viewers of ABC’s General Hospital were in for a twist on Friday’s episode, when Anna Devane suddenly and inexplicably goes blind!  It is a terrifying moment for Anna and throughout the first part of this new arc, played beautifully by Finola Hughes.

But what is the cause of her sudden blindness? After Anna is brought to ‘General Hospital’ by her son, Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Finn (Michael Easton) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) are there to try to calm her down and to try to figure out what is wrong with her, Griffin runs some tests.

Meanwhile, Griffin and Finn get into a tiff over Griffin’s lack of bedside manner and his losing his faith. Griffin says its all now about the data, as he is still reeling from Kiki’s murder.

Later, Griffin reveals to Finn and Anna that the tests show that she has experienced a vitreous hemorrhage.  However, he doesn’t know what caused this … or if her vision can be restored.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH co-head writer, Shelly Altman previews of this story for Anna, “What has happened to Anna will lead us to uncover a mystery that affects not only Anna, but several surprisingly unrelated people.”

Meanwhile, Peter meets up with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) at Kelly’s and tells him what happened to Anna and that she suddenly went blind, but to stay away from his mother.. He also has a warning for Valentin, that whatever Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) has on him will come back to bite him sooner than later, and we all know that Valentin hired Sasha to pose as Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) long-lost daughter, and Obrecht knows it!

And, Franco (Roger Howarth) just may trip upon the lock box in Kevin’s office, that holds the clues to everyone Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) has murdered!  How does that come about? After, Franco runs into a gun-toting Ava (Maura West) on the pier, “Kevin” shows up.  He tells Franco he can no longer be his doctor and he will refer him to someone else.  Franco does not want to end his therapy with Dr. Collins, but it’s of no use in changing “Kevin’s” mind.

When Franco makes his exit, Ryan tells Ava that they should leave Port Charles together and never look back.  Then, Franco breaks in to Kevin’s office at GH, and goes looking for his patient file and that is where we see the lock box.  Will Franco figure out what is going down?
