Upon her return, Sabrina is shocked to learn that for much of the time she had been gone Patrick knew who ran them off the road and caused their son’s death. She also learns that her best friend Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) knew as well.

On today’s episode of ABC’s “General Hospital,” the tradition of the Nurses Ball continues with yet another male stripstease.

What a chest. What an ass,” after an annoyed Levi (Zachary Garred) commented, “This is so tacky. Does a charity really need this? What a waste.”
