Nurses’ Ball 2017: Day Two

Okay, when I made the joke about Lulu’s dress and the Nutcracker yesterday, I had not yet seen the actual picture of Kelly Monaco hiding underneath her gigantic skirt, but now I have, and it is GIVING ME LIFE.

Anyway, day two!

girl power or something

Rant of the day: I understand we’re working with budget constraints and the halcyon days of the entire cast showing up in a huge room with huge tables padded full of numerous extras are long gone. But is it really too much to expect the entire staff of the hospital to actually make an appearance? Brad and Lucas, Finn and Hayden… Monica’s skipping her own hospital’s premiere event for the second year in a row?

Meanwhile, Mac’s home on the couch with Robin. Alexis and Molly (and TJ) didn’t bother to show up for Kristina’s big number, and Kristina didn’t bother staying for the rest of the show after her own act, because I guess paying Lexi Ainsworth for more than a day of work and one Burt’s Bees commercial a month would be just too much.

any screen time is good screen time?

Meanwhile, the chimera “mystery” creaked along to finally “reveal” that of course Valentin sold it to Helena. I, for one, am shocked!

Also, Valentin has nice pipes:

SOULFUL

Sidebar: does anyone understand what they’re going for with this Alex/Anna plot? I mean, they luck into some weird chemistry between Anna and Valentin, and instead of nurturing it, they immediately proceeded to waste MONTHS on long, emotional scenes between him and NotAnna that I eventually just stopped watching, because really, what is the point?

And after suffering through all that endless mopey eyes and chimera talk, we didn’t even get a satisfactorily soapy reveal scene with everyone in the same room! And now we’re stuck with scenes like today, where Anna bumped into a good friend she hadn’t seen since March, belatedly remembered to tell him she’d been replaced by her evil retroactively twin and put in a medically induced coma and…

no, it’s cool, I can totally talk

…the camera cuts away from his reaction, because ten scenes of Sonny sleuthing out the mystery of the dust at the bottom of Morgan’s pill bottle just wasn’t enough for one episode. What is the point of any of this? It’s like anti-soap opera.

Anyway, tune in tomorrow, when and Emma and Charlotte are probably going to murder the whole town.

  2. The only musical number I have liked so far was Valentin/James Patrick Stuart (son of Chad Stuart, of Chad and Jeremy) singing to Nina. Which was immediately ruined by Anna tracking him like a bulldog, relentlessly appealing to the friendship they never really had.

    And how did Valentin go from having a past life as the one person Helena was terrified by to this genius tech who worked at WSB?

    Can Charlotte and Emma please put Sonny in a coma?

    • Valentin’s number was really good. I hate them for making me warm up to him… except, no, no I’m not – not until they make this storyline make some coherent sense. Also, I miss his evil mustache from when he was a pirate.

  3. The girl’s musical number was horrible! Why was Emma performing with women twice her age? And how did she have time to practice this musical number from the other side of the country?

    None of them could sing worth their salt. Emma is at least young enough to get away with it. I know this song was prerecorded cu the lipsyncing was obvious. However Amy’s high pitched notes were a mess. And she was singing so hard like she was a powerhouse and she is not!

    And Valerie and Kristina were talking through autotune. And the choreography was tragic. Even so I thought Lexi had a dance background? She was struggling to keep time to that basic choreography.

    Did they think it was a good idea to show the cast laughing at that tragedy?

    When did Kristina become friends with her brother’s mistress? And the acting in that product placement was terrible.I cringed.

    • IDK, I was thinking gee, when are we going to suck it up and admit that Emma is too old to get away with not actually being able to sing? That was a trainwreck.
