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and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello.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

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.”

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
