Ned and Emma perform a duet of Elton John and Kiki Dee’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” complete with Elton themed costumes. After their performance, Lucy makes more speeches about the Nurses’ Ball and what it is about. She also assures them that there won’t be any stage crashing this year by a well-known fanatic.

She comes to and knows where she is, and he insists on taking her to the hospital. In the women’s restroom, Carly corners Ava and demands she give up custody of Avery, and she flashes the homemade sex-tape that Ava and Paul made. Ava laughs and says she’s done a lot worse than that and gotten away with it, so have fun doing what she wants with the video. Back in the ballroom, Franco checks on Liz and Jake. Jake is about to make his debut, and Franco tells him how to deal with nerves. Jason sees Franco talking to Liz, and it annoys him, but he isn’t about to start anything tonight. Meanwhile, Lucy tries to convince Griffin to perform in the ball, and promises to return the favor in the future. Lucy runs off and asks Milo and Epiphany if they have seen Lucas since he’s about to miss his wedding.

Afterwards, Lucy announces they’ll be taking a break, but urges everyone to donate. Robin and Emma leave, as Robin takes Emma to Mac and Felicia’s for a sleepover. Backstage, Franco tells Jake how awesome he was, and Liz, Jason and Sam arrive and tell him the same and that they are proud of him.

At the ball, Carly sends Paul a phone message, and he drags Ava off and confronts her with the movie he just got from Carly. He can’t have this going public, and he could lose his job over it. He reminds Ava that he still has the recording of her. He tells her whatever Carly wants, do it. Magic Milo and The Wands take the stage, and Griffin has joined them in Lucas’ place. They end their show in their traditional undies that spell out Nurses’ Ball.

Finn checks over Bobbie at GH and prescribes something to make her rest easier. She insists Lucas go get married, even without her. He doesn’t want to, but Bobbie won’t take no for an answer. Later, Obrecht confronts Finn about why he left his last job, and what he is hiding. He refuses to tell her anything.
