THIS WEEK: GH Nurses’ Ball 2020: What Will Go Down? Who Will Perform?

Courtesy/ABC

Even the coronavirus pandemic cannot stop the GH Nurses’ Ball!  The long-running ABC daytime drama series, who on any “normal’ year in our lives, would air these episodes in the spring, usually in May, is now going to air their staple event this week in August.

GH recently returned to production amid Covid-19, and now their annual songfest, and dramafest is about to be revealed for 2020.

In the promo for this week, looks like Nelle (Chloe Lanier) is on a mission that will collide with the ball, while Lucy (Lynn Herring)) as usual is in distress over the big event, and who knows what else might go down with Ava (Maura West), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and others?

Watch the teaser from ABC below, then let us know who you are hoping to see perform at the ball? And, what you hope happens to some of your favorite couples or Port Charles residents via the comment section below.

TPTB should tune in to the Nurse’s Ball from the 90’s. Those episodes were so well-done. I miss the 80’s & 90’s in Port Charles!

Budget budget budget budget! Did I mention budget? They just don’t have the budget to do it like they used to.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping this year’s Nurses’ Ball will be exciting and well done. Good luck everyone!

Please put this Nelle saga to rest. Give the girl a spot to lay her head and plant her feet—-it’s beginning to look like a rope-pulling contest going nowhere. Make her Nina’s daughter and put this never-ending-story to bed, as well. I must be Nelle’s only fan—-plus, after all is said and done, Carly will always be the villainess to me. The same can be said for Maxie and “et tu Brute”.( in more ways than one–eg: his hair. What is that? No rhyme or reason)—-soooo boring; so fruitless; so unproductive; so superfluous. This guy truly gets under my skin.… Read more »

“Eek” , mouse run; oh, it’s just Lulu I was floored, as she’s laying in to “brother” ( step I might add ) Nicholas, about his relationship w/Spencer. she has the audacity to throw: “what is more important than restoring my trust in you” even Laura would be miffed, grandiose step aside little one… I do not wish this all on Dante I agree with you ; @Nelle. ^^^^ “… Give the girl a spot to lay her head and plant her feet” Bam ! this is it ! because of her constant “mow over” every one knows the history…… Read more »

Hey, Patrick….I won’t get into insipid Lulu–you said it all and well. I expected so much more. And, this new Brook Lynn with those witchy eyebrows and scrunched up face is perplexing—-looks either angry or pmsing. Everyone is getting on my nerves except Ava , Nelle and Nikolas. Michael is his boring self —I would die if I were married to his type. Too bad Maxie is pregnant with Brute’s baby—will the child inherit that hair? Did you notice the malignant/satisfied smile on his face when embracing Maxie? This guy is an oxymoron personified. Can’t stand him!! Why, oh why… Read more »

Hi Celia!! 🙂
To give some drama and a total emotional fan bitch fest-
Maxie should have an abortion !!_______________
and-
Lulu– well, I’ve been thinking;
to send the Lulu character to your house to keep you company 24/7
but- I luvs yah too much to hurt you so badly ;)____________
Michael needs to get a brain tumour and turn him into a livid nasty villain charater. _______________
GH needs some dark crazy bad guys!
somebody to make our skin crawl_________________
GH (all) the soaps) are being written for nursing homes to keep the people calm.. like a viewing lobotomy thing lol

Oh Lordy!!!—, how much I’ve missed your comments, SusieQ—-Lulu and I would not hit it off—-I wonder what music she listens to—Lawrence Welk? None of the younger crowd acts young—-not even the teens—- Nelle is obviously leaving—-there goes the entertainment. I really wanted her to stay, but not as a killer—-I shouldn’t have been surprised; but, I admire Chloe her absolute talent. The character never put me to sleep. Even “the crazy bad guys” have turned into pussy cats. I thought new Nik would show some umph—he is a turn-on, in my opinion, but he’s also a puppet —-I am… Read more »

I – really – like how fast they MOVED, Valentin I didn’t think he had the 50 percent shares PLUS Lucy as tiebreak? As dastardly as they can? lets hope they let Valentin , perhaps actually get to know Ned why not forge an unlikely “ally”. get Ned back in the game…. sure would beat the boy scout routine with Michael. dag PUHLEASE for the love of GOOD ACTING I don’t know, do the writers have it in them to give us a corporate intrigue espionage… outside of mob sting bite and upchuck. as for Jason being in hosp… lots… Read more »

Who’ the dead man walking? Drew?

Most likely Taggart. His “death” in the hospital was obviously suspicious. Nobody actually saw him die, so a lot of us suspected it was a fake death all along. Made fairly obvious by Jordan suddenly having this mystery burner phone with an unseen person calling her frequently. Curtis answered the phone today, so apparently Taggart didn’t think that was a safe way to communicate anymore, so he took his chances and met Jordan in person… probably assuming that most of Port Charles would be focused on the Nurses Ball, so he wouldn’t be seen. Now the only question is how… Read more »

Everything you said makes perfect sense—-Davy suspects it’s Taggart , as well. I suppose revealing his “undead” condition would hinder any investigation concerning Cyrus—–whom, may I add, is on a short leash—will be gone soon enough.
I also think Drew is somewhere out there—-perhaps in oblivion ?—until a replacement is considered —-and some kind of far-fetched plot.

It would be great if it was Drew, but its probably Trina’s father. I can’t even remember his name. That’s how much I missed him.

No, Jimmy….don’t do that. Post once in a while—-everything has changed due to the virus. And, even after a vaccine is in effect, I doubt we will ever recapture our personal norm.
Chances are, given what a germaphobe I am, I will be wearing masks for the rest of my life. LOL.
Good to see you here, my friend.

I just watched the first episode of the NURSES “Ball” telethon. In my opinion that was the worst episode I can remember. I know covid probably changed things but, it was horrible! If you can’t do something right, don’t do it at aĺl.

Agreed, Davy—I guess my expectations were too high. What a let-down!! Even with Covid, there could have been some entertainmthe cast is interacting….so, what’s the problem? Money? Maybe, today? Not over yet.
Hmmmm, Trina’s father. Never thought of him. That’s how much I missed him, too. LOL.

I am finding the Ball extremely boring but I must say that Carly and Nina looked very pretty,unlike when in character, Carly snarkey and obnoxious and Nina constantly squinting and frowning,like she’s in pain does take away from their natural looks. Speaking of looks, I recently watched an at-home video with Maura West and couldn’t believe my eyes. She looked at least ten years younger than when she’s playing Ava with all the makeup. You can tell they are trying to work the COVD into the script in this Ball thing without saying anything explicit. If I hear the words… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
