On the second day of the Nurses’ Ball: Brad and Lucas got engaged and smiled at each other with such happiness on their adorable faces and it was actually quite moving? I legit teared up for a moment. I CAN ADMIT IT.
(Seriously, though: WHERE THE HELL IS BOBBIE? They couldn’t spring for one reaction shot while her son was getting engaged?)
Anyway, then Magic Milo happened, and Michael awkward tossed a briefcase filled with money on the stage and TJ made me uncomfortable with pelvic thrusting and also, there were butts. So many butts:
BTW, EPIPHANY IS OFFICIALLY HITTING THAT
The Haunted Starlets sang a song about how bitches be crazy or something. While kind of crazily glaring at each other due to their respective romantic rivalries, so I guess that song knows what it’s talking about.
And Duke and Anna tangoed. If he’s about the die, I do appreciate them giving us one more chance to admire Finola Hughes’ amazing calves. The flashbacks even made me a little verklempt about his probable impending death! And… then I remembered that they have made Duke terrible and decided to not care. Oh, well.
On the kiddie front, to the surprise of no one, Brooklyn Rae Silzer was an adorable baby. Look at that face! Also, Emma told Spencer off for treating her like a prize and never listening to her. Which prompted him to nearly murder her during her act, and everyone kind of still laughed it off, all “boys will be boys.” Which: no. That kid has now crossed over from mini-stalker to abusive boyfriend. Adults need to stop enabling him.
At the very least, he could use a stern talking to from a parental figure who isn’t currently evil… wait, no–Britt! I meant Britt!!
NOPE NOPE NOPE
Okay, we all knew this was coming, but either the vote was rigged or people actually voted for this horrendous development over seeing either Stefan Cassadine or Serena Baldwin. In either case, my thoughts on the matter are as follows:
But, hey! Spencer’s other parent finally, finally explained why he’s become an evil pod version of himself. Boy, I bet it’s something super compelling after all this build up! Get ready — are you ready? Are you?
ELIZABETH: Why would you do this to me? To everyone who cares about Jason? To Jason himself? He’s never been anything but decent to you!
NIKOLAS: I agree.
ELIZABETH: Then WHY?
NIKOLAS: Why? I’ll tell you. The last two years of my life have been a complete disaster. Constantly being jerked around, taken advantage of… let me tell you something. I’m reclaiming my life.
Well, I don’t know why Liz is making that face. That makes perfect sense to me!
Oh, and then he helpfully explained that Jason never managed to permanently leave the mob for any of his lady loves and would probably be much happier living as an amnesiac mechanic. And that Sam and Danny were better off with Patrick, who loves them and also does not kill people for money. And I mean, point for Evil!Nik? That is not an inaccurate representation of the situation.
But Liz also accurately pointed out that it’s still a completely bullshit reason to play god with other people’s lives and marched her cute little pink behind out to announce the truth on stage. Which I’m sure she will totally do, because I have never watched television before.
Tune in tomorrow for: Mob hits! Eddie Maine! Liz somehow managing to punk out of telling everyone about Jason!
