Nikolas walks on stage. Nikolas thanks her. He is thrilled to be back. He thinks that they have to continue the Nurses Balls original reason. They are donating two million to AIDs research. He tells Ava to join him. Ava thinks that was generous. He thinks that this telethon is for front line workers without their courage and compassion. One of the finest people he knows is a nurse. They met in high school. Nikolas has seen first hand how Elizabeth embodies healers. They are starting a scholarship tonight for Nurses and naming it for Elizabeth.
Nina finds Valentin in the lobby. She tells him it is a beautiful song. Valentin is glad that she enjoyed it. Nina should get going. He asks if that is her mothers neckless.

Jax tells Nikolas that was a generous donation. Ava knew what Nikolas was going to donate. Nina is going to go to the powder room. She asks if Ava wants to join her. Franco wants a word with him. Franco thinks that Nikolas is a spoiled little boy. He doesnt get everything he wants because he is a spoiled little prince. Jax wants them to all just play nice.
Nina asks Ava what is going on. Nina actually needed a reality check after she heard Valentins song. She thought the song was sung with such honesty and it got to her. She couldnt help it. Ava knows those Cassadine men can get under her skin. Nina wonders if Nikolas is trying to make her jealous. Nina thinks that is tacky. Ava thinks it could be profitable for her.
