In the second installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018. the drama continues to see if Anna (Finola Hughes) will finally meet her son, Henrik and find out that he is actually Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

Inside the ballroom, Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) takes to the stage as the emcee of the annual event. To kick-things off, she introduces the GH nurses, who begin their number by having the one and only Epiphany Johnson (Sonya Eddy_ front and center as she begins to belt out, Sly and the Family Stone’s classic hit, “Everyday People”. Nurse Johnson is joined on stage by Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), and Amy (Risa Dorken) and a bevy of dancing nurses!

The next musical number features Chase (Josh Swickard), who gets duped by his police partner, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), when he set him up to have to perform all alone! Little did Dante, and all the attendees know, that his cop can sing and dance. Chase performs the hit song “Feel It Still ” by Portugal: The Man and even his brother, Finn (Michael Easton) has to be proud of his brother, even though he wouldn’t say it.

Speaking of Finn, after not being able to shake seeing Anna’s last will and testament via a file Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) had in her bag that fell to the floor, he sees her make an exit to the backstage area and follows. However, Finn is now supposed to be on-stage introducing Alexis before her receiving the Pioneer Award.

Backstage, an emotional Finn corners Anna and says he knows she is dying and confesses thar he cares for her. Alexis overhears this having gone backstage to be introduced to accept the Pioneer Award since Molly (Haley Pullos) is now handling the intro duties. Finn thinks Anna has been pushing him away, because she is dying. Now, what will Alexis do after overhearing Finn’s concern and expression of caring about Anna?

Love was in the air when Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Nina (Michelle Stafford) performed a magic act, and when it came to asking for a volunteer in the audience, Curtis picked Jordan (Vinessa Antoine). Then, in the middle of a magic trick he replaces a coin with a diamond ring, and gets down on one knee and proposes to her! Jordan accepts, while Stella (Vernee Watson) looks on from the audience dismayed. In addition, Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) share a quick tender moment about the meaning of the Nurses’ Ball, remembering Stone, and Robin gives Sonny her sympathy about Mike (Max Gail) battle with Alzheimer’s.

Elsewhere, Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) baby is kicking inside her tummy more than usual. She confesses to Peter, she misses Nathan. Sam (Kelly Monaco) also got a look of an exchange between Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Peter, which raised her suspicions. She exist to go to the Aurora offices and snoops around Peter’s desk and finds a lighter with the initial’s on it, “CF” – Cesar Faison. The episode ends on this cliffhanger.

So, what did you think of the performances of Josh Swickard and the opening number by Sonya Eddy and “Nurses”? Do you think Anna will finally admit her feelings for Finn to him? What will Alexis do? Has Sam now figured out that Peter is Henrik? Will something happened to Maxie’s baby now that its kicking and in overdrive?

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.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

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.

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.
