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and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello.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.

Onstage, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) performs “The Book of Love” by The Magnetic Fields, and after his stirring performance, he is in for the surprise of his life. When he turns around, Robert (Tristan Rogers) is there and punches the guy! Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is shocked to see her father! The episode ends on this cliffhanger.

So, which performance from part 3 of the Nurses’ Ball, did you enjoy the most? What do you think will happen next to Peter, Maxie, Alexis, Anna, and Robert? Comment below. But first, check out again the Nurses’ Ball performance byValentin Cassadine AKA James Patrick Stuart.

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

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
