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! ❤️

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Reveals She Is Recovering From Brain Surgery

On Friday afternoon, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) took to her Instagram Story accompanied in the car by her best friend, Emme Rylan (Ex-Lulu, GH) that she just underwent brain surgery.  In the video, Storms was in a neck brace.

In her message to her fans and friends, Kirsten shared: “I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually.  But, less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace.  It was on the lower portion of my brain. Emme is taking care of me until I get to my at-home nurse. It has been an interesting last couple of days.”

Kirsten went to clarify what kind of surgery it was, revealing: “What they had to drain and remove was not cancer. I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, goes crazy wild with rumors about this. I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was so full, the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull.”

Now that the pressure is relieved from her brain, Storms will be healing and taking time off from work at GH, expressing: “I will be on the mend for the next several weeks. I will be back at work when this is over with.”

Share your well-wishes for a safe and speedy recovery to Kirsten via the comment section below.
