GH Nurses’ Ball 2020: Valentin Pours His Heart Out In A Song, The Elizabeth Webber Scholarship & Nelle’s Plot Takes Center Stage

CourtesyABC

This week GH fans have been watching a very different look Nurses’ Ball on the ABC daytime drama series as they scaled down the annual event due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its safety protocols.

Instead of the glammed up red carpet, the attendees wore t-shirts as this was to be a telethon and not an in-person gala. Gone were the tables of attendees watching the action on-stage, but what has remained are: the host with the most, Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring), the performances from the stage, and a storyline with some danger to it (there always seems to be one or two that collide at the ball every year) with Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) plot to nab her son Wiley and get out of town.

Perhaps, GH star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) said it best when he tweeted at the beginning of the week  “GH fans – 2020 Nurses Ball kicks off today! In the midst of a pandemic… resilience, ingenuity & compassion are on full display at ABC Prospect Studios in Hollywood.”  And it was Stuart’s performance on Thursday’s GH that was by far, and as it has been every year, one of the highlights of the ball (whether you like this year’s look, feel and storylines, or not).

In story, Valentin is laying his heart out on the line for the woman that got away from him, Nina (Cynthia Watros).  As she watches him perform, she knows he is singing to her.  That is not lost on Jax (Ingo Rademacher), either.  As Valentin sings, all the other couples seem to heed the message of the song and are affected.  Later, following his performance, Nina and Valentin chat for a few where she says somethings are just not forgivable, and she means – making her believe that Sasha was her bio-daughter.

Other performances included a sparring Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), who recently are not seeing eye-to-eye when they performed “Lead Me Back to You”, which was an apropos choice given their bickering over ELQ, Dante, and Ned’s focus in life.

Things are all kind of messed up between Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Franco (Roger Howarth), Ava (Maura West) and Nikolas (Marcus Coloma).  And in a shocking moment on stage, Nikolas with a surprised Ava by his side, announces he is making a donation of  million dollars to HIV/AIDS research and a million to the telethon … and he’s endowing a scholarship for future nursing students in the name of his good friend, Elizabeth Webber!  Later, Elizabeth thanks Nikolas and is so touched by his gesture which makes Franco jealous.  Fast forward and Elizabeth overhears Ava and Nina chatting in the ladies room where Ava admits if Nikolas cheats on her it will make her quite the wealthy woman!

Nelle has blackmailed Julian (William deVry) to go kidnap Wiley out of his crib at the Quartermaines and bring her son to her so she can leave town.  He goes to the Q’a and chloroform’s Monica (Leslie Charleson) to get to Wiley’s room.  Brook Lynn (Brian Lane)has overheard Nelle’s plan backstage at the ball and plans to stop her, but at the end of the episode, Nelle lunges and swings a pair of scissors Brook Lynn’s way.

So, what did you think of James Patrick Stuart’s performance?  What do you think of the ball this year so far?  Do you want Nikolas with Elizabeth? Will Nelle get out of town with her bio-son? Comment below.

So let me put my “predictable plot point” hat on over my horns and put forth the following theory…. Somehow we have to get to the “shocking revelation” that Psycho Nelle is Nina’s daughter. Nelle is now completely unhinged, and as such, she’s sure to get herself injured, whether her “husband” Julian shoots her (who could blame him) or she falls off the docks and cuts herself on some sharp object trying to get away from him, or manages to escape in her car but then wrecks it or …. well you get the idea. So Nelle will lose a… Read more »

Heeey Satan :)——- The purely good turn dark bad The dark bad turn purely good——– It’s a great way to create new characters from the old so not to have to hire new actors; just turn them.—— So- eventually Nele will turn good (unless she dies)—- I’m excited for Roger/Franco to turn dark, he will own the darkness!!! Roger is born to rock the dark! I miss Franco/rogers ”humour” his drama acting.——– Whoever gets tagged up with Liz she kills the guy by sucking the exciting vivid life out of him and turns them into Stale moldy nothing. FREE FRANCO!!!… Read more »

liz is an emotional vampire .. she now belongs in that ugly stupid castle with Nicholas! You’d think with all that Cassadine money that could have afforded a decorator after all these years… so over that heap catalog heart necklace it’s mass produced!

I have to agree with you. Although I’d prefer your other scenarios, getting shot, drowning, etc, it will most certainly go your way or all the hype of Nina finding her child would not come to fruition. I hope they aren’t planning on rehabilitating Nelle when the truth comes out.They have done enough of that with other characters. Enough is enough already!

James Patrick Stuart’s “can you feel me” was beautiful. If he hasn’t recorded it he should.

Although Valentine is my least favorite character on GH I enjoyed his performance of “Can You Feel Me.” I actually listened to it 3 times and looking for a way to save it on my playlist. I guess I will also listen to the original song writers version because I’ve never heard of this song before. Very good job Valentine! ❤️

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
