GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly and Nelle’s Showdown Brings A Cliffhanger Ending, Literally!

Courtesy/ABC

When Chloe Lanier (Nelle) and Laura Wright (Carly) get-together in the ongoing contentious battle between Nelle and Carly you know there is going to be emotion, fireworks, and high-stakes, and on Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, their scenes did not disappoint.

DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN TODAY’S EPISODE AND PLAN ON WATCHING IT.

First, Michael (Chad Duell) is on his way to take care of Nelle himself and to get his son, Wiley back home safely from Nelle’s abduction of the little boy.  He calls Carly and lets her know he has a lead on Nelle and is going after her.  But Nelle finds the tracking device she placed in Wiley’s stuffed animal which was all part of her plan and realizes things are going south when she is probably already being tracked-down because of it.

Michael gets to the cabin and is met by a vase to the head by Nelle.   But when that does not work to knock Michael out, he demands to know where Wylie is.  He attempts to barter with Nelle that if she leads him to their son, he will promise to keep Nelle in the child’s life.   Then, and once again, Nelle brings up Carly and tells Michael that his mother will never allow that.

Nelle says Michael never stood up for her, but then he tells her – after slitting Brook Lynn’s (Briana Lane) throat and kidnapping Wylie, she is going down and he will make sure Sonny (Maurice Benard) takes care of it.  Michael hears Wiley cry- so he runs into the other room to be with him, while Nelle makes a run for it.

Next, with Jax (Ingo Rademacher) in tow, Carly shows up at the cabin and sees Michael and learns that Nelle got away.  Carly tells Michael, that’s it! This need to end now.  Nelle needs to be stopped!  So, of course, Carly is the one to go after Nelle, while Michael stays by Wylie’s side.

Outside, and near the road and the cabin, Carly comes upon Nelle, and then the showdown begins.  Carly tells Nelle she is going to prison for attacking Brook Lynn and stealing Wylie.  Nelle turns things on Carly and tells her she should have been there for her since they are sisters!  Carly is quick to counter that Nelle kept pushing until she destroys things, something Carly knows a thing or two about.

Carly tells Nelle to finally do the right thing and turn herself in for Wylie’s sake.  Just then, Carly and Nelle get into a tussle and Nelle tells Carly to come get her! Next, Carly hears Nelle’s cry for help and screams.  When she comes upon her Nelle has gone over an embankment, holding on for dear life … or take a terrible fall below.

In true soap fashion, Carly tries to grab Nelle’s hands, but Nelle loses her grip (OR was it intentional to set Carly up for murder?) and she plummets. Did Nelle just die? Did she plan a great escape to blame Carly and ruin her life? We have to tune-in tomorrow to find out the upshot of this cliffhanger.

So what did you think of the end of today’s General Hospital? What do you think will happen next?  Comment below.

Lord have mercy! I hope this is NOT how Nelle goes out. It will another disappointing, narrow story ending of a great villain; just like Shiloh’s ending was disappointing. (And I still believe he could be alive, so the writers could have redeemed themselves if so much time hadn’t passed.) With Nelle, I really wanted to see a who-dunnit. So many people had reason to bump her off and were practically saying so. But we get saddled with a repeat story of the biggest enemy of the villain being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Now, I guess,… Read more »

No, this isn’t how she goes out. This is how she gets injured to the point of needing blood transfusions. You might have noticed she was wearing the half-hearted necklace when she was arguing with Carly. This is mostly going to be the setup for Nelle to be clinging to life and for Jax (why else would he even be there) to notice the necklace and bring Nina in so they can drain her blood.

As usual you make good sense.I never believed they would kill off Nelle because the big mystery of she and Nina being mother and daughter would be for naught and they have put so much into this SL, the heart necklaces, etc.

Ih Hell no let’s all say One Great Big Prayer and hope that Nelle is DEAD and put an end to all of this and as for Carly she will be fine with mo Charges at all

It looked to me that Nelle deliberately threw herself off that ledge.—-is she so mentally deteriorated that she’d risk anything to get Carly? —even her own death?
Will Carly be accused of pushing her? Another court case? How thrilling–not!! Especially with sainted Carly and her brewding husband.

I don’t think she is dead. Someone will nurse her back to health. She will blame Carly she will go to jail for a little than get out.

Hi, Joyce—-I tend to agree with you…..too easy to be rid of Nelle this way—

I agree but it was dark and maybe the drop is not as deep as you would suspect. I believe Nelle is still alive and that does not make me happy.

A small clarificaton, guys—-I purposely used “brewding” in lieu of “brooding”— you know; he hides behind his “coffee business”. Pardon the inane pun.

I think it will be the end of Nell and Carly will not face charges and it will end up a tragic death. Reason behind it Nell snapped mentally because she couldn’t cope with the coming consequences of her actions.

I watched a small clip, and it was the same repetitive dialogue. Although, both actresses did a great job.

Mark my words, number one, Nelle is not dead and number two, she will find Morgan and they will return from the “Dead” together!

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
