GH Nurses' Ball Day Two: Frisco and Felicia Ending, Richard Simmons, Sabrina & Emma and More!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, it was day two of the singing, dancing, and backstage drama at The Nurses’ Ball.  First, many long times fans were heartbroken at the ending of the Felicia and Frisco story, when Felicia revealed to Frisco in front of the entire room that she is in love with Mac and he is the man for her!  A distraught Frisco walks out and his daughter Maxie goes running after him and asks him to stay in Port Charles for her!  Frisco says he can’t and leaves, in a heartbreaking scene between Jack Wagner and Kirsten Storms, who over a short time together have proven to be quite the acting duo!

Backstage an unhinged Richard Simmons attacks Lucy Coe and prevents her from getting out on stage and that just disingrates further until Simmons is carried out by the “Magic Milo” boys but not before uttering the hilarious line to Bobbie Spencer, “Hi Bobbie, say hello to Leslie for me!”

Rick Springfield came to the Nurses’ Ball as himself, imagine that?  In a very clever way to get Rick to sing his hit classic, “Jessie’s Girl” while still maintaining that Dr. Noah Drake, is just that, a doctor, not a rocker!

And how cute was Sabrina and Emma’s rendition of “Call Me Maybe?”  But what was even cuter was watching Patrick and Anna’s reaction!  There was also, Duke and Anna’s tango, the Magic Milo strip tease dance, and of course the evil Britt, coming up to the Nurses’ Ball stage with a coat over her blue dress as Dr. Patrick Drake is addressing the crowd in a beautiful speech about Robin’s life and HIV/AIDS awareness globally.

And, we finally learn what many have thought that, Britt is the daughter of evil Faison, thanks to the end of the show moment when Dr. Obrecht looks at Faison’s picture!

Watch Sabrina and Emma’s  musical number after the jump! Then let us know your thoughts on yesterday’s Nurses’ Ball episode? Favorite parts?  Upset about Frisco and Felicia?  Glad she chose Mac?  Weigh-in!

SO glad Felicia picked Mac … let’s face facts, fans. If Felicia had chosen Frisco, she would have reverted to the doormat she was in the 90s. AND she would be off the canvas, as Frisco and Felicia would have left town together. Just never thought that Jack Wagner was going to be long-term.

I agree with all the earlier posts about the irresistable Lucy, and with the post about Robert Scorpio sadly remaining absent for the festivities. I don’t understand why SOMEBODY doesn’t sign Tristan Rogers to a long-term contract. Is he difficult? 😉

Yesterdays show was fantastic! I am glad felicia chose Mac. He’s an angel! Frisco always has had an alterior motive; with no care to who he hurts. It was so sad how Maxie reacted. My heart went out to her. As for Richard Simmons, no thanks!

The one thing really stupid about the Richard/Lucy part is that no one was smart enough to check Lucys own dressing room when they thought she was missing!

when Frisco said…. “there’s no reason for me to stay…”

boom…. pistol shot…

i thought that kinda let us down….

yeah, one had to figure he wasn’t going to stay long term..

but, the inroads they made on father/daughter…. was a bust… and, only with the writing… he showed lotsa love for Maxie… and he only said…. you’ve always been able to take care of yourself… ????

Maxie.. running after him.. was beautiful…. but… alas…. she has that solid figure.. in Mac…. and now… mended… Mother/daughter melding.

do not think Felicia should have chosen Mac. She is still in love with Friscoe. Why didn’t mac ask felicia to marry him??

Cassie

Felicia loves both Mac & Frisco but has learned from her past mistakes. Choosing Mac shows her personal growth. She chose Frisco before and lost her relationship with her children. This time she has realized that Mac, strong and dependable, is what she and her daughter need. Her love for him is more important to her now. So happy they showed this growth in Felicia. Leaving her kids never made sense. I love how Ron C is fixing the mistakes of past writers.

Mike
Guest

Felica loves Friscoe, but friscoe does not want to be on the show. So the writers had to “get rid ” of him.

I love Epiphany(expand her role GH) and her weight is a concern…my late mother was overweight and so are several of my other family members who most have health issues. Would love to see the actress on a celebrity version of the biggest looser!

I agree. So glad Felicia chose Mac! And I loved the Rick Springfield is Noah Drake’s doppleganger twist. Laughed out loud when Bobbie told Noah that she had never noticed how much he looks like Rick. Lynn Herring as Lucy Coe is phenomenal – I want her on GH permanently! Loved the AJ/Liz scenes. Loved everything, really. Watching the crowd was so much fun – Lucy, Olivia and Felicia and Mac rocking out in the audience were hilarious! Awesome job by the GH cast & crew. LOVED IT!

You were right– I didn’t think she would be pregnant because I figured if she was she would have told Patrick ages ago– and wouldn’t be begging mommy for help–unless she is faking it– no she must be because it would a bit difficult to fake a pregnancy if the so call father is a doctor. So maybe she did steal Dante’s and Lulu’s egg and Maxine was never pregnant with their child. This could lead to a custody fight later down the road when Maxine realizes the truth and wants her child back, a child she gave up out… Read more »

Thats why i made my guess…hoping what i said is true about Britt carrying Dantes and Lulus baby…it would definately keep me watching in suspense, especially the if done the way i suggested with so good twists! Some may not like them, but im starting to enjoy Britt and her mother. And its been ages since ive been addicted to GH! Nice to her from you again Mary SF!

I thought the whole Britt is pregnant thing was in poor taste sorry FV & RC can’t support you on this one. The husband standing up there with his daughter honoring Robin etc and he proves he had unprotected sex. I was disgusted however I know what twist they are planning for this pregnancy but it still defeated the purpose of what dragged on way too long for me. Tacky! Plus Richard Simmons over the top I was glad it was over today.

yep, I’m thinking she’s got Dante & Lulu’s baby in there.. very interesting twist indeed!!! Did Faison dream this up? Hope Anders Hove is on his way back again after he escapes maximum security 😀

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

wow… that’s a good twist….

down the road… it could be said… that Lulu and Dante will have their child… and Maxie and Spinelli will have theirs…

this is about Dr. Patrick.

altho… a part of me still can’t believe… he’s moving on…

i didn’t buy that moment between Patrick and Anna…. “both” moving forward with their lives… like we had to see Anna prodding on the sometimes dimwitted Patrick… it’s OK…. perfect Sabrina…. is who you need.

time for my bitter pill

I loved yesterday’s Nurse’s Ball episode!!! Would have loved less of Richard Simmons… who seemed like something out of a bad imitation of “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane”. I loved the Emma snd Sabrina number and yes… the reactions of Anna and Patrick were the best! Emma/Brooklyn is a great little talent and she looks like she is having the time of her life throughout these episodes!!! She is such a talented cutie!!! I loved the Magic Milo number and the tango with Anna and Duke! I loved Emma’s reaction to Anna and Duke being he boyfriend… sweet! Please… Read more »

I liked that Felicia picked Mac. Strong and steady his raised her kids! Kristen storms was fantastic when she asked Frisco to stay. That was heart breaking. She has been abandoned by him so long and now again. Ouch!

The nurses ball made me remember how much i miss those old music/variety shows. My biggest problem was that no one checked for Lucy in her dressing room when they thought she was missing. Didnt like how Frisco left Maxi just because Felicia turned him down…maybe they couldve at least say he was called away on some mission, then have him visit Maxi in the future when the baby is born ect. Richard S. was ok but much of his scenes could have been trimmed so the episode couldve showed the Bobbi/Felicia scenes that were cut. Mollys singing kinda looked… Read more »

well, I didn’t think Jack Wagner was staying long term… like staying until after Maxie gave birth, nor staying to figure out what the Britch and her mummy are up to, so I wasn’t surprised by Felicia picking Mac. I was a little surprised that Frisco would propose in front of everyone. I loved Sabrina & Emma’s skit. Watched a couple times. The Milo boys were fun… but so far I liked the Blinded me with science skit with Damien and Ellie the best — I’ve watched that four times… so far! and of course, watching Rick Springfield sing is… Read more »

I really hated how the whole Frisco and Felicia scene was written. I wanted Felicia to choose Frisco. Frisco and Felicia should have left the show together. While growing up Frisco and Felicia has always been a favorite couple. It was sad how they had Jack Wagner/Frisco leave. I only like Felicia and Mac together as friends.

Felicia love Friscoe. She chose Mac becuase he is a steady hand.

Richard Simmons went from Inspiring to a spiteful queen. The Lucy in the underwear scene needed to be the end, like the other years. Frisco showed he cared nothing for maxie, and Felicia was his true mission. I did find the Mac and then Olivia sets to be stupid. Would like to have seen AJ and Liz’s much talked about number. The final song/Robin needed to be during middle and with Brenda and Sonny there. Also I was missing Audrey, Luke, Robin, Alan, Edward, Ned, Em, Dara the people who wade the Nurse’s Ball so memorable.

I love that the ball is back!! I like that many of the acts did look look like last minute throw togethers, and not polished Broadway numbers. I question the appropriateness of a male strip tease act at a ball to raise money for AIDS, but that is a minor quibble. The heart and soul of GH was clearly on display, and it rarely was under Phelps/Guza. I hope this will again be an annual event. Richard Simmons can stay away. He was creepy and disturbing and psychotic and the time spent on him could have been devoted to more… Read more »

I loved the entire thing! However, I don’t understand why they wrote Richard Simmons to act like that. I know him quit well and he is NOT like that at all. He is kind and sweet to absolutely everyone and does not act like a Diva at all. My Husband knows him too and we were both just perplexed that they would write him to be completely against how he really is. He is always encouraging and uplifting, understanding and genuine. I think it gave many people who are not aware of how he is the wrong impression of him… Read more »

They wrote him like that for laughs…so that Lucy had a ‘reason’ to go onstage in her underwear.

Most of us don’t think the actors are like their characters, Richard doesn’t need to worry – we still love him! 🙂

I don’t understand myself either why they wrote Richard Simmons part that way! And I didn’t like his part in the Nurses Ball at all .. I guess that’s the way he was told to play it. It wasn’t good at all! Too mean & nasty for me.

At the end of the show it appeared that Michael was talking to Starr on the phone, am I right? Although I am going to miss KA as Starr, I am happy that the writers didn’t make it as if Starr was never a part of the show, because for a moment I thought they were going to do that because Micheal never mentioned missing her or wishes she was there performing at the Nurses ball.

It was a slap in the face for Frisco fans. Sure Felicia would pick Mac, but why destroy his character that way. Couldn’t he be a long distance support for Maxie? The Frisco I grew up with would be written that way. And Claire Labine would never let Frisco’s character be destroyed that way.

Ava
Guest
Ava

The Frisco I remember was written that way because JW left the show. Frisco never bothered to contact his brother after BJ’s death/after Maxie’s heart transplant. And he wasn’t around after Georgie’s death. Whether or not past writers wanted to recast Frisco, they could have written him in somehow but didn’t. This destroyed his character a long time ago for me. Given all of that, Felicia’s choice and the writing of it made perfect sense to me. Sadly, Frisco will always be a character who suffered because the actor chose to leave the show. It was written decades ago.

Mike

you are absolutely correct! Actualy Jack wagner called (Felicia) in real life and said, ” I got a call and the want to know if i will come back for the 50th anniversary.” She said she did not mind.

But truly Felicia loves Friscoe. Mac is a fool. he did not ask felicia to marry him Felicia asked Mac!

I HATED the way they wrote Frisco out. I got that Frisco and Felicia wouldn’t be end game with the Wagners now divorced and Jack’s stay only temporary but it wasn’t necessary to decimate Frisco that way. I knew going into Monday’s show that it would be heartbreaking but I thought that we would at least good memories to look back on. The whole thing was classless and mean spirited.

I agree, but what’s done is done. Roll on. The script should have been written differently and here is why: What I found surprising was the stuff the writers had scripted Jack and Kristina Wagner do. Not only was this probably hard personally, but professionally also. My guess is that Frisco and Felicia was near and dear to the Wagners also. Wonder how they felt when they saw the script. Frisco singing to and professing his love to Felicia, then her shutting him down. This was filmed in front of basically the entire cast and crew. I know it was… Read more »

Wonder if the same Frisco/JW fans on here are the same crazy ones that are on twitter vowing to boycott anything to do with Mac and Felicia and their portrayers. Yes, and their portrayers, this is getting personal for some fans. Immature to say the least. Fans on twitter were so ticked because Mac and Felicia were dancing to Rick Springfield in the audience and smiling at Olivia and Max’s Frisco comments in their NB skit. It was scripted people! Dancing on Frisco’s grave like some have said? Give me a break! And I am a huge Frisco and Felicia… Read more »

frisco and felicia belong together they should be a family again why did she’s choose mac over frisco it’s not right i think she’s doing this to get back at him she’s could at least think about it first before she’s make a chose which men she’s would want to spend the rest of her life i hope frisco comes back in time to stop the wedding it would be great!

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered that made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their work as an ensemble.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly any words.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Courtesy/ABC

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
