By this time next week, General Hospital‘s hotly-anticipated Nurses’ Ball will be gracing the small screen (beginning Monday, April 1) — but why wait until then for a glimpse into the revived fan-fave festivities?
Timed to the ABC soap’s 50th anniversary, the big event will feature familiar faces from GH past and present — and, based on the following sneak peek pics, will also alter countless storylines along the way.
Scroll on for our spoilery takeaways from the fancy schmancy Nurses’ Ball, then peruse the photos and hit the comments with your observations and snappy judgements!
1 | There’s a step and repeat (!) at the Nurses’ Ball, providing a place for Port Charles’ finest to walk the red carpet (!!) and do interviews (!!!) about the charitable event.
2 | Sabrina has finally undergone her ugly duckling-to-swan makeover — and the results are epic! (To be fair, we thought the adorkable nurse was perfectly lovely as is. But still…)
3 | Brenda is back in town and, as always, looks to be butting heads with her ex Sonny and his ex Carly.
4 | Ellie may very well be overhearing Maxie’s bombshell of a baby secret. Too bad her boyfriend is at the center of it all…
5 | As it should be, the Nurses’ Ball is honoring the “late” Robin Scorpio Drake in a major way.
6 | AJ and Elizabeth are (still) making seriously googly eyes at each other.
7 | Sam’s date to the festivities (now that John McBain is gone and not coming back…?): Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy aka brother of Val, Kelly Monaco‘s former partner on the competition series.
8 | Richard Simmons is on hand to whip hostess with the mostess Lucy Coe into tip-top shape! (Is the campus disco still open?)
9 | Duke is donning a kilt — and sharing a romantic dance with his ladylove Anna. Might they be recreating their memorable tango from so many years ago?
10 | In-laws Monica and Tracy are putting aside their differences long enough to perform a number with alpha-nurse Epiphany.
11 | Felicia is still playing the field when it comes to the two loves of her life, Mac and Frisco.
12 | Look at you go, Rick Springfield — er, Dr. Noah Drake.
13 | Not all of the ladies’ gowns will land them on the Best Dressed list. (We’re looking at you, Lucy — but only in that big-bowed black thingamajig.)Follow @MegMasters
