GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Two: Cameron and the Llama, Anna’s Speech, Chase Dazzles

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, it was day two of the annual Nurses’ Ball, and things kicked-off with the opening number by the GH nursing staff, (except Elizabeth) performing the classic hit “Best of My Love” by the Emotions.   After the number, the drama started to unfold as the GH Nurses’ Ball always intersects storylines with the event.

Scott’s (Kin Shriner) plan goes awry when he opens Lucy’s (Lynn Herring) hotel room door hoping to find her making out with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), but only Kevin is there, as Ava (Maura West) figures out what Scott has been up to.  Kevin and Ava are continuing their ruse to try to lure Ryan out of hiding, but seem to be enjoying each others company more than they admit.

When Mike (Max Gail)  and Yvonne (Janet Hubert) arrive. they show off the engagement ring that Mike gave to Yvonne, which Finn (Michael Easton) sees and realizes that is his engagement ring to Anna (Finola Hughes) that he has been looking for.  Finn talks to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and they come up with an emergency plan to get the ring back, which goes off without hitch by Finn giving Mike the fake one Robert (Tristan Rogers) had.

Watching the ball at home, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is with Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), and Kris flips out when she sees Sam (Kelly Monaco) with Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) at the festivities.  Meanwhile, Peter (Wes Ramsey) lowers the boom on Shiloh telling him that Molly (Haley Pullos) will be doing an expose on “Dawn of Day”.  At the same time Jason (Steve Burton) and Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) hatch their own plot to nab Shiloh, and are setting up surveillance cameras at DOD.

Backstage, Cameron (William Lipton), who is ready to perform solo finds Lucy’s llama. and in the most touching moment of the episode has a heart-to-heart with the animal about losing Oscar.  William Lipton throughout the episode was terrific.

Now we come to Anna and Robert.  Anna wants to set her ex straight by telling him that she will always love him, but she wants to marry Finn, and she doesn’t know what he is up to … but to stop it – since it appears Robert is trying to be the interloper in Anna’s romance with Finn.  Later, Finn tells Robert he has his ring back and will propose to Anna

Next, after a rousing intro by Lucy, Chase (Josh Swickard) performs “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay and brings the house down and brings his gal, Willow (Katelyn MacMullan) to the stage with him to dance and finish the musical number.

As the episode comes to its conclusion, three plot points emerge:  Kristina shows up at the ball ready to confront Shiloh, as Sam looks horrified.

Cameron shows up to the Corinthos’ home to talk to Josslyn and convince her to come to the ball with him and perform, because the song is a duet, and he says to her that he has a message from Oscar to give her.

Lastly, Robin could not make it to the Nurses’ Ball this year. The annual moving speech falls to her mother, Anna to deliver about surviving and living with HIV (touchingly delivered by Finola Hughes).  Robert says he will join her on stage, because Robin is his daughter too.  From the sidelines, Robert and Finn start to watch Anna’s emotional speech,  Robert finally tells Finn he better make Anna happy. but knocks him in the arm in the process.  Finn drops the engagement ring and it ends up at Anna’s feet onstage.  She looks to the sidelines and sees both men.  Can she figure out who just proposed?

So, what was your favorite moment from the second installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019? Comment below.

These Nurse’s Balls are NOTHING compared to those that took place in the 90’s. Just seems such low quality shows. These red carpet was so awkward and weird. I didn’t really get it.

Well, the entire show has been lower quality since February 2012, so that would explain it.

To be blunt–
The Nurses Ball is blahh

It wouldn’t even be entertaining to the folks in a Nursing Home..

I FF through most of it, it simply was not good..
There was a reason(s) it was canceled, back in time it is no longer worth the time and money put into it.
The ball is a shadow of what it once was 🙁

Well, tho- in a way it is a fashion show for those interested in evening gowns lol ..
(I liked the llama)

My God, Oscar is NOT Stone. He’s become the NuMorgan. Can we stop talking about this kid, already?!

Nurses Ball is a mixed bag…i actually like the Llama because we feed them and other animals at a local farm…one had a baby and i was first to noticed it even before the owner who allowed me to name it-Kimba after a favorite childhood cartoon of mine…Anna and Robert still have ‘It’ but with Finn i just dont see it…he and Sam should be a couple as they both work good for me as a sleeping pill…i dont like or dislike Chase but a Nurses Ball should be about the hospital staff and their time to shine!!!

Loved Cameron with the llama. Quirky and touching. A boy that age would find it easier to share his feelings with a llama or a dog or cat. But the llama was definately unexpected.

Having watched today’s show, l agree with what you all have commented so far, so I’d like to add a few of my own, starting with Anna and Finn. I guess she had to accept, seeing as how Heyden is returning to hopefully break them up. As much as I am not a big fan of Dr. O, I am, one of Kathleen Gati. That lady oozes talent and her rendition of Guilty was wonderful, until Roger joined in. Anyone liking this song that hasn’t seen or heard it done by Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb, should watch it on UTube. I also enjoy songs I know, another that Ava did, in her usual sensual way. Cameron was cute, but it just went on too long for my taste. Finally, how about that adorable llama, and those eyelashes?

Why did Ava have to try and sing at all? She cannot carry a tune and she has a thin, flinty, singing voice–not good. At least Nina had the good sense to sit this one out.
I could not agree with you more about Kathleen Gati. Her voice is beautiful, strong–pitch perfect! But why was Franco needed? His singing is not as bad as Maura West’s but it’s not very good either.
I think Anna and Finn are dull together and they contrast poorly with Anna and Robert, whose chemistry is still off the charts.
Poor Tristan Rogers having to endure that crappy writing. As if Robert Scorpio doesn’t have anything better to do than to play Finn’s bumbling and clumsy ring bearer. Give Scorpio his own love interest and an adventure. He deserves better.

I think they just want to have as many performers as possible by utilizing the cast members, whether they have talent or not, thus we have to have the likes of Ava and Franco.
I would much rather Franco had not spoiled Ms. Gati’s performance. I also like Anna and Finn, but certainly not together. She seems to simper in his presence. Tristan deserves better, or send him on his merry way.

there’s parts of the nurses ball I like and others I don’t. I agree with a lot of fans that the nurses ball of the 90s were much better, I think they paid more attention to performances and its obvious the budget for the soaps in general were higher. still I give them credit for trying and I’m glad its now a mainstay. hopefully it can evolve and be taken into a better direction. I would like to see this really as a true charity event instead of fictional, and maybe have real financial support for the cause, through advertisement donations, and real organizations supporting it, and also have guest stars donate their time an appear on the show. I’m sure there’s many ways to go. For crying out loud the show is own by Disney, they should be able to get a lot of support. okay but back to the episode, I like the new theme song for the show hated the red carpet, always cheesy for some reason. loved chase performance and Anna speech. I think Jax and Nina have chemistry, or should I say Michele and Ingo, hope the nunina can match it. I was afraid for Cameron and the llama, the llama looked like at any minute if could be scraped off and it would start kicking anyone in its way.
