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!

Nelle and her shenanigans has what’s kept me tuning into GH the last year. An awesome soap villain.

Charday…she is also a very good actress, for me the only good thing to come out of the Fluke story.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
