Chloe Lanier Making A Return To General Hospital

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Look for naughty Nelle to be back on all-new episodes of GH, and that means fans will get to see more of Daytime Emmy-winner, Chloe Lanier!

According to Soap Opera Digest, Lanier will be back on-screen after leaving the show In August after two years with the daytime drama series.

When Chloe left the series, Nelle was carted off to prison for her deceptions and crimes, but according to her chat with SOD, she is back because she ‘has some unfinished business with some people.”  Lanier’s return stint starts next week.

So how will Nelle’s re-emergence impact Lucas and Brad who are raising Nelle and Michael’s son?  Will she seek more retribution on Carly?  Stay tuned.  After all, Nelle gave her baby to Brad in the now notorious baby switch, which we have since learned that baby “Wiley” has a heart condition that can be traced back to Michael’s side of the family,

Glad there will be more Nelle coming up on GH? Comment below!

She’ll start blackmailing Brad and Julian for something. That’s how she rolls!

I like Chloe Lanier. I think that she is a great actress. Unfortunately, the character was written into a corner with no redeeming qualities. Although, some would argue that the same could be said about Ava, Carly, and Sonny. Although, I LOVE Maura West. And, I have a soft spot for Maurice Benard, “The Dimpled Don.” I have been a fan of his since his “Nico Kelly” days on AMC. And, I LOVED Sonny and Brenda in the 90’s.

Chloe’s return is for a short stint so the baby drama will be quickly resolved.
I can not picture Michael as a father, no way..
The baby’s purpose is for drama, a drama tool, that will after be seen once a year.
and after- Brad and Lucas will be off screen, also.

It will be dull and low drama with snivels but it will not be grabbing so ehhh get it over with LOL I have no interest in it.

Same as Ray, Kevin’s twin,the supposed manic killer is a cream puff, no drama anything with him.
Even while kidnapping whats her name it will be mainly drama free nothing spellbinding.
GH writers can not write a mystery or a thriller, they just are not capable of putting us on the edge of our seats, as once was.

What pisses me off is that back in the day, a story like this would last over a year before we got the payoff. I’ve said it before not too long ago-the stories wrap up too quickly these days so keeping us on the edge of our seats doesn’t happen anymore. when Sheila took Lauren’s baby on Y&R, Lauren didn’t find out for 18 months, OLTL was great at dragging out stories that I used to swear at my TV when I thought a story was going to be wrapped up. I still love the soaps but they just aren’t what they used to be.

I couldn’t agree more. Baby switch storylines always have greater impact and provide more ripple effect when they play out over years. Wiley being taken away from Brad and Lucas when he is old enough to realize what is happening would provide infinitely more story possibilities than a switch of a few months.

Of course it won’t matter any way because Wiley will instantly bond with Sonny and identify as a Corinthos and never give Brad or Lucas a second thought the instant he is returned to Michael.

James, its the world we live in now. Everybody wants “Theirs” now or I will hold my breath! No build up anymore. However, there are those who complain that you can still watch a soap once a month and still know whats going on! [They probably dont watch anymore]

James R. Poissant

Let’s see what happens when Nelle is back on the canvas but I will be disappointed if they wrap up this story as quickly as I think they will. The fun in watching soaps is waiting and waiting for the day all hell breaks loose or when our favorite characters get intimate. I would say all the cuss words when I thought the day was finally here the big secret was revealed only to have some cliffhanger come along to make me wait some more. I think I even made up some new ones because the suspense would kill me. Haven’t gotten that in a long time.

So funny you’re saying that because if you go on other sites all the fans complain and complain ad nauseum how long the stories take to finish. This Ryan story? I think he stepped foot, literally, in the hospital one time and they wanted it wrapped up and done. It didn’t even BEGIN!!!! And they were saying they weren’t going to watch until it was over. They hate the new DA, they hate basically everything and everyone except Carly and Sonny. It’s unbelievable.

And Michael’s baby? You’d think someone in their own family had a child kidnapped. They’re done with this story, how long does Michael have to suffer, blah, blah, blah.

Blah! LOL!

Michael will make a great father; not sure if you were watching when he was raising Avery but he was so good with her. If only he would keep his child away from Carly…

“if only…. god… if only” to put us out of our misery

killing off Chad Duell… dullard Michael Corinthos

it is aching and painful to watch him at any thing… his pitiful scenes with his parents.. so syrupy to see carly doting over and appearing almost righteous with both Michael and Josslyn… she’s just not believable.. truly

because this family play the same scenes over and over

Now I appreciate a Patrick rant just as much as the next person, and have done so for years. Mind you, not always agreeing, nor for that matter, understanding, but appreciating your passion nevertheless. Enumerating the “dullards” [insert cast list, Frank, Shelly, Chris, and let’s still throw in Jean, just because], never ceases to amuse, but I think you’re being too hard on Chad Duell. He plays the adult in the room quite well, delivering perfectly capable, understated performances. When given the material, he can excel, and he showed that opposite the hugely talented Chloe Lanier.

Patrick

Michael and Nelle had zippo chemistry. Nelle wore the pants in that act. that car crash w/Nelle… was all Nelle… Michael lame drawl at getting a confession… achingly laugh out loud when Sonny was doing his best to “rescue” Michael as he was stuck in his seat. eye roll from Frank Valentini top draw

even watching Josslyn “bitch” slap Nelle .. as she tried escaping from the hospital… that rough tussle had Josslyn fans screaming just like Momma. as Josslyn roared with some fierce and her lioness .. as she stood firm… no one messes with my family . ho hum

stuck with Michael and its fair to say Joss is making inroad. have to cheer for some distraction

I mean really.. there was CArly once again giving Ava the third degree.. telling Ava she’s not getting Avery tomorrow… as it’s Morgans anniversary and that the whole family will be together… it was so mind numbing as even Jason got in the sniveling antics w/Carly… Ava is telling JASON that it was she who saved his life… Jason tells her he gave her the formula for her face… etc.. it’s just lame how Shelley and Frank and Chris just do the same things.. over and over… ^^^^ as posted above, all their scenes are the same… whew thank god I hope the writers keep Michael away from Chase… as BFF? they have nothing in common.

Patrick….you know how I feel about your expressive, eloquent writing….your discriptive visuals always touch me, as no other.
What drivel that!! What nonsense!! How archaic!! How self-righteous. It has been tried on me. ….was squashed in a New York minute. I love you, Patrick!! Keep trekking, my friend. I, for one, am a fan!!
Be yourself ….there are some people who think they are overlords–infallible—better than others. Do not listen to those who think they have a better grasp of characters and storylines….a superior mind. When elephants nest in trees will I kowtow to such insufferable, inconsequential despot mentality.
Keep writing your stuff, as you see fit.

I really think the actress is top-notch but the writers have written Nelle into a pretty quick corner before sending her off to a short prison stint. I’m not sure how they are going to justify her being out of prison so soon. Hopefully, it won’t be anything that will glare brighter than whatever story they have planned.

Of course, it seems most likely she’ll be back to reveal somehow that baby Wiley is really Jonah and then we’ll see Brad and Lucas go off the canvas, as well as Nelle, again. We, the viewers, will be left with another months-long story that will have no real pay-off. I hope I eat those words and am pleasantly surprised by what’s coming up.

I did wonder why they left Nelle’s picture up in the opening credits when they were sooo quick to remove Dante’s and later, Jordan’s. I thought this might have been in the works.

And while I’m at it, though it has nothing to do with this thread…I read that they told the actress that previously played Jordan that she wouldn’t be on much. This new Jordan is on all the time. Don’t get it….Also, Laura is back. They need to be just as quick putting her back in the opening as they were taking Dante out…And while they’re at it, Kevin has been on a lot for months. Why not add him, too?

I knew down deep it couldn’t be true she was gone,for good… I hope the baby will be the only reason, she is returning… I couldn’t watch G H thinking She’s Back as a regular… If she tries to hurt Carly I hope the writer’s know she is the one who be hurt !!!

Patrick

imagine, if Chad Duell’ Michael was killed. this would give Sonny and Carly new material for the next 3-4 years. He’s simply put… the worst actor in all of daytime… except perhaps Devon @ Y&R

Timmm

So that means the Morgan drinking game would end? HOORAYYYYY!

Patrick

I’m certainly “happy” for Chloe Lanier.. that she took the high road.. and hightailed it so fast outa Port Charles… WHO in their right mind would be stuck and/or saddled with Sonny and Carly !!!!! ???? Michael ????

I certainly hope Dominic Zamprogna, ( Dante ) is faring well… my hats off to you… Frank Valentini has no imagination … only his agenda.

of course, the top draw that was Corinthos’ Bryan Craig… STOLED their show .. any way. I’m certainly ecstatic that he’s no where near the dullard (s).

celebrating these two actors spiral… they have only themselves to keep.. and it’s all eye roll blech and fast forward.. on any thing Sonny and Carly. Michael isn’t even a mention. DEAD

I will patiently wait for Disney / ABC / General Hospital to FIRE Frank Valentini

wasteland .. and it’s all your doing

No..not happy she is coming back at all! She never fit in to begin with. No chemistry at all between her & Michael and I could not stand her acting..no talent. So dissapointed as I was done with her boring storyline!!

Bren

Well, if it means Brads deception and lies get exposed sure come back Nelle. This is wishful thinking but maybe she will cross paths with crazy Ryan and he will end her.

Violet Lemm

I don’t mind if its only for the short haul, to enlighten everyone to whom Wiley really belongs to, and not those two nitwits he’s with now. Lucas is OK, but bad Brad, shouldn’t even still be working at GH, let alone in the lab, where people’s lives are at stake, and he having the means to change them on a wim, or a few dollars. So Nelle, come back and do they right thing, and back to prison with you!

Patrick
Patrick

isn’t this just further proof.. that Shelly and Chris along w/Frank… have no stretch or reach… ??? simply cannot make a story … there’s no emoting outside of the obvious… even their acting is tame with nothing registering. bring back Nelle to cut to the quick. OK… Michael gets his child.. and carly is a grandmother. la de da. end of story.. thank the soap gods for Chloe Lanier and Max Gail… who are both deserving of Emmy’s… it’s gotta be a shoe in for Mr. Gail… he’s so much fun then….. AND currently. I had to google.. I was all of 16 when Barney Miller aired… ooh la la

Timmm

Its to soon! They just made a big thing about her leaving and now she is coming back. I think Valenti has ADD! Tell the damn main stories on the screen now and then focus on Nell and the baby thing after at least ONE of the stories is written from the beginning until the end!

#1 You are doing a great job with Mike and his illness. Keep it up.

#2 Ryan and Felicia. Kill Lucy off. Felicia kills Ryan and Laura and Kevin can finally move on. BUT, dont do this in three weeks! Have Ryan feel more and more uncomfortable around Laura. Have Ryan get more frustrated with her. Have Ryan kidnap Felicia and keep her all to himself for months! Have deadbeat Frisco roll into town to save Maxie’s mother. Have Frisco and Mac work together. USE CHARACTERS US VIEWERS STILL CARE ABOUT!

Then bring back Chloe!

Baby Wiley Corinthos..he will rob other babies of their pacifiers as he goes on a crime spree at The Local Daycare Center and will never be given any time out because of it…after all, these Corrupthos never do much time for their crime!!!!

Hysterical stuff, Jim! But your underlying premise is unfortunately true. The whole Corinthos saga is illustrative of why so many former fans stopped viewing and why so many current fans are disappointed.

maybe she is really Nina’s daughter and not the newbie

rebecca1

I hope not. I really like Sasha (so far in the little we’ve seen her). She’s gorgeous, she seems stable, warm and she and Nina already have so much in common. I REALLY hope this sticks and it’s not some scam or mixup. That’d be too cruel after all the longing Nina had for a child. I don’t think Valentin would be part of it if it was but I wouldn’t put it past her evil mother to cause her more pain as a “parting gift.”

Fingers crossed Sasha’s the real deal. I can already see her with Griffin or Chase!

Celia
Celia

Hello, Jimmy,
You know what I think? This Sasha situation is too simplistic……Something’s off.
Yes, there seems to be a similarity between her and Nina,…..but, Kiki is her bio daughter……Sasha could be a twin.
Who knows, Kiki may see the chain on Nina’s neck and wonders why she happens to have the other half?
Do you trust me?? LOL

I knew Nelle was going to come back eventually even if it’s just for a short stint because she has to be part of the conclusion of the baby swap story.

Hoping this is a very short-term return. Unlike some of the other posters, I DO want the baby switch cleared up ASAP! Then I want Nelle gone for good! Good actress, terrible character who they destroyed, and now can’t be redeemed.

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!
