At the Metro Court, Trish (played by Trish Ramish) reveals that the doors will open in five minutes. Nina worries to Maxie that her co-host is late, but Maxie calms her down. Sydney Valjean (played by Chandra Wilson) arrives, and Maxie feels having a New York fashion editor on the red carpet will elevate the coverage of the ball. Nina explains to Sydney their job is to introduce everyone and tell them how good they look. Sydney won’t lie when it comes to fashion. The carpet begins, and Lucy is the first to arrive. Sydney praises her silver dress, and Lucy tells Sydney that she is a big fan. While Nina and Sydney interview the guests, Maxie live tweets from the red carpet. Ava and Kevin arrive next, and Lucy casts the evil eye at them. Scott waltzes in and flirts with Trish before hitting the carpet. He spots Kevin and Ava and rushes through the interviews and refuses pictures. Chase and Willow stroll down the carpet as Nina rolls her eyes, while Sydney comments how sweet Willow is. Valentin enters and Nina runs up to give him a kiss. Sydney is taken aback. Sasha and Michael walk the carpet next, thrilling Nina. Inside the ballroom, Kevin worries to Ava about their plan because nothing involving his brother goes as planned. Kevin and Lucy watch them and fume. They both agree to put an end to Kevin and Ava tonight.
Up in Canada, Curtis and Laura wake up tied back to back at the cabin. Laura smells gas and realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have died at the funhouse simply to torture Kevin. They struggle and finally break free and escape just before the cabin blows up.
At the Corinthos mansion, Carly tells Sonny that Joss won’t go to the Nurses’ Ball, and she thinks she should stay home. Sonny thinks it would be good for her to go, and admits he hates this night because it reminds him of Stone. However, he knows Stone would want him there.
At General Hospital, Franco picks up Liz for the ball. They kiss and Epiphany tells them to get a room. Liz praises Epiphany’s dress. Dionne, Amy and Felix arrive, and Franco reveals he has a stretch limo to take them all to the ball.

Kevin leaves Ava as a spying Scott smiles, grabs Ava and tells her there is something she needs to see. Upstairs, Kevin is shocked to find Lucy in the room he was sent to. Lucy, in only a slip, thinks Ava is taking advantage of his good heart and offers to save him from himself. Back at the ball, Willow turns white when she sees Sam walk in with Shiloh. Shiloh makes small talk with Carly and Sonny about Kristina, and how he’s looking forward to her returning to Dawn of Day. Carly tells him not to count on it. Sonny explains his family always comes first no matter the cost. Back on the carpet, Anna and Finn arrive, followed by Robert. Anna sees her ex and panics, while Finn casts him dirty looks.
