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and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello.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

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

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
