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: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
