Courtesy/ABC

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, it was the third installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018, which featured: three musical performances, a reveal to Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) that Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is Henrik Faison, Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) water breaking as she is in a car with Peter, and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) trying to cope with overhearing that Finn (Michael Easton) has deep feelings for Anna (Finola Hughes).

During the festivities, Ned (Wally Kurth) and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello. Later, in a tender performance Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Oscar (Garren Stitt) bring down the house performing, “I Never Knew” the most moving moment thus far at this year’s ball as Oscar’s parents, Kim (Tamara Braun) and Drew (Billy Miller) look on with pride.

While the performances are happening onstage, backstage the drama heats up after Finn admits to Anna that he has feelings for her and how he has never stopped thinking about her. Alexis overhears this whole confession to Anna.

Upset, Alexis heads out of the ball and past the stage, even though she was supposed to receive the Pioneer Award. She heads to the bar. Finn finds her, but Alexis would prefer to be alone. He leaves. Enter Julian (William deVry)! Will Julexis finally get back together, or will Alexis push Julian away? Elsewhere, Sam tells Jason about the lighter of Cesar Faison’s she found in Peter’s office and the P.K. Sinclair book. Jason realizes that Peter is Henrik. Meanwhile, Anna has texted Peter again to meet her. But Maxie. who is with Peter, tells him she wants him to take her home, because she isn’t feeling well. Later, her water breaks while driving in the car with Peter, and she urges him to pull over.

Hiiiiii, Timmmy,
I found you!!!!
Well, I would love for Robert to stay so he and Anna can rekindle their love….Maxie is iffy for me at this point…..however, it would be remiss of me not to mention, that after knowing the truth anout Peter, she will wake up and get her mojo back. ….do not like Peter and never will.
Alexis and Finn are great together—-spontaneous.
James P’s piano playing was flawless—the singing? Not so much….and Maura West cannot sing….
Sorry…love you Maura. Keep on acting…LOL.
See ya later, T….I hope?? ❤️

Celia, I think Ava is more of a performance artist, no? If so, she did a damn good job. But I was confused about the song choice. She told Griffin that song was for him which doesn’t quite make sense. I mean, Griffin never acted like he owned Ava. Maybe she means he doesn’t own her soul and he can’t make her pristine and perfect like he is? I know that’s reach but that’s all I can come up with. Also, she said she changed her song choice at the last minute. The back up dancers and musicians acted like they had been practicing this number for weeks.
Now if Kiki had sung this song to Dr McCreepy that would have made a lot more sense.

I thought the same thing, Harry….made no sense. That song applies more to an aggressive, controlling mate/partner.
Maura IS definitely a performer and she did have my attention….she simply can’t sing.
Yes!!!!!! Kiki should have performed that number. The perv needs a good dousing of hot sauce where the sun don’t shine, and then some……hmmmm
I did like all the dancers—and performers, albeit Bobbie stuck out like a sore thumb–and, I mean sore….

Ava is nothing if not self destructive. She’ll undermine her thing with Griffin until, oops, he’s in Kiki’s bed. Talk about self-fulfilling prophecy. Boy, Griffin sure forgot his “morality” faster than Father Ralph in THE THORN BIRDS.

“Oh Happy Day!” Celia has found me! I found you to honey! I was nervous about the switch, it took a couple days but it is here now and fabulous. Congrats Mr. Fairman and thank you for this avenue! Now onto the show! Wally has talent but as any American Idol judge would have said at one time or another, ‘Sorry dude, wrong song Choice!” Now James Patrick, another good song this year. He does exude talent! BUT, I couldnt have been happier to see Robert Freakin Scorpio punch that smirky “Most Feared” Cassadine ever in the jaw! Robert stole the moment right from Valentin. THAT was classic Scorpio, circa 1980 something! Love you C!

Robert Scorpio is cooler than the other side of the pillow.
I say put him on contract,give him a story line which doesn’t suck and then promote the hell out of him. That will boast GH’s ratings big time!
Favorite line today? Robert Scorpio arresting Parking Lot Peter saying, “Get going, you creep.”

Nobody makes an entrance like Agent Ck-8

Most Unholiest “performance” at the Nurses Ball this year!

Best part…Robert slugging Valentin…too much singing…what happened to comedy acts and enetertaining parts like when they done with the Wizard Of Oz…it just was too much American Idolish

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.
