On Tuesday’s second installment of the 2016 GH Nurses’ Ball, it was cuteness abound when Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) and Ned (Wally Kurth) took to the stage for their duet, a rendition of Elton John and Kiki Dee’s version of “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” Kudos to the costume department for their nod to Elton’s garb, which made the whole number even go higher on the cuteness chart. Following the number, Lucy (Lynn Herring) ensures the audience there will be no nurses’ ball interuptus (that’s you, Liesl, she is talking about). However, Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) stumbles across Liesl (Kathleen Gati) gagged and tied up, and unties her.
In a second high cuteness factor musical number that also drives a further wedge between Jason (Billy Miller) and Sam (Kelly Monaco), and Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), little Jake (Hudson West) is about to making his singing debut at the ball. When Lucy informs him, due to the missing Lucas (Ryan Carnes), they have to move up Jake’s number, he gets scared. But Franco is Johnny-on-the-spot and tells Jake to just envision everyone in the audience as duck’s “quacking”.
When it’s his turn to take the stage, Jake freezes. But it’s Franco to the rescue, who accompanies him on a percussion shaker, and even sings a few bars, along with the guitarist to the tune, “This Changes Everything.” Elizabeth could not be more proud.
Nina (Michelle Stafford) is visibly shaken and upset. Backstage, Jake is happy to see his dad, Jason. However, Jake says he doesn’t know what he would have done without Franco. Everyone glares at each other! Later, Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) hands Jason a legal document informing him he is being sued by Nikolas (Tyler Christopher). She says the dark prince claims the money Jason used to buy ELQ is from organized crime. She goes on to tell Jason that the money has been scrubbed clean, but the IRS has frozen his assets! He is furious.
There’s nothing better than a diva beat down bitchfight, and that is what GH’s Daytime Emmy winning actresses, Laura Wright (Carly) and Maura West (Ava) provided the viewers! When Carly shows the gloating Ava that she has the flash drive and the video of Ava’s S&M sex romp with D.A. Paul Horsnby (Richard Burgi), she tells Ava she will never get custody of baby Avery now. But Ava laughs in Carly’s face, and says do her best to bring her down, she has suffered much worse. Carly says she will post it online. A catfight ensues and somehow Ava flushes the flash drive down the toilet. Carly laughs at her and says she has a copy of it saved on a cloud. Carly then texts the video over to Paul’s cell. He is mortified! Paul finds Ava and tells her to make this go away and do whatever Carly wants, as he still has the tape of her confessing to the murder of Connie Falconeri.
While Lucas has gone MIA, after finding a knocked-out Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and taking her to the hospital, there is panic in the ballroom as they need another guy to be part of the Magic Milo and the Magic Wands strip tease act. They rope in Dr. Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen). Soon, Griffin, Milo (Drew Cheetwood), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins), and Curtis (Donnell Turner) take to the stage to the delight of the females in the audience.
At GH, Finn (Michael Easton) checks out Bobbie, and she tells her son to get back to the ball and go get married to Brad (Parry Shen) who is waiting for him so they can say their “I do’s”. Lucas says he is not leaving. Bobbie demands that he goes. After he leaves, he realizes he left his car keys in Bobbie’s hospital room. He comes back to happen upon a stranger about to inject a syringe into his mother! We next find out Lucas has been attacked and is lying on the floor not moving, just after Lucy begins presiding over the Brucas wedding ceremony. Brad has come out on stage, but when they introduce Lucas as the other groom; he is nowhere to be found.
