GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

I believe Chase’s version. Josh Swickard has made me totally forget about Dante. Swickard has star quality, there is a vulnerability and innocence that comes across in his performance that is very appealing. Nelle is the kind of character that keeps viewers coming back. Lanier’s performance reminds me of the ORIGINAL Carly, though sleazier and more evil. Good and evil together = interesting and compelling! Great casting choices by GH.

100% agreement, Bradley. Josh Swickard is a real find and, though I hate that he fell for Nelle’s machinations, I like that he may help bring her down. Now, if only that tool Michael would wise up faster, we could move on.

and endanger the child.

hi Bradley.. I like Chase and am looking forward to his development. He has just begun and there will be changes as we learn of his backstory. With both Dante and Nathan gone Chase is needed to carry the torch and that will take time. I recall when Nathan arrived he was ehh not so great and the viewers were up in arms over the no talent bad actor pretty boy model lol, but after time he grew into his role and became awesome, I feel Chase will also become. Of course Nelle is lying and Eventually, Chase will take… Read more »

Too bad we are losing Dante. Was enough to lose Maxie’s husband.

If they really needed to fill the cop role, they need to get Jonathan Jackson back on board. Nashville’s final episodes are on the air, so he has to be done filming that by now. Bring back Detective Lucky Spencer.

And once he gets back into his routine at the PCPD, he can get the mother of his children away from the psycho serial killer. Or should I say, the serial rapist using the name of a dead serial killer.

Of course I believe Chase, but how anyone could fall for that little witch’s “charms” is beyond me! Like he couldn’t do better in his sleep! He is smoking hot but also very sweet and a little goofy, too. A perfect combination for daytime!

I know that a lot of people do not like Nelle; and although, I am not really a fan of the two storylines (the past/pregnancy), I think that Chloe Lanier is a phenomenol actress. Josh Swickward came across really inexperienced in the flashback episodes, though (not sure, if he was trying to come across as nervous, being around Nelle, a woman he was attracted to, or an inexperienced cop, but it felt awkward to me). I would much rather see Nelle/Chloe Lanier on my screen, than that lousy Peter/Wes Ramsey who looks greasy, slimy, and can’t act for ****. For… Read more »

I agree, dmr, and is it just me or, unlike most actors, does he get WORSE instead of better? In spite of Liesl’s evil imprisonment, I find myself wishing she would get rid of him. Doesn’t speak too well of Mr. Ramsey.

So this is where all the soaps stories are– the latest news section rarely has anything related to soap story lines which is what I like the most from the old site. It is a bit of a pain to have to look under each soaps section to see any “action” on what is on screen, but now that I know there where to look I will — as for the topic– I am not a fan of new characters being tied to relatively newer characters–a soap should have a set of core characters and newer characters should be tied… Read more »

I am so glad this storyline is coming to an end but I hope the fireworks happen after she has the baby and Carly is in the delivery room.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
