GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Photo: JPI

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.

What a fun return for Chloe Lanier who played Nelle’s shocker to the hilt!  Got to love a good bad girl on daytime who stirs the pot!

So, what did you think of Nelle being Shiloh’s widow? What do you think Nelle’s next power play will be? Comment below.

Saw it coming a mile away…if not months ago when Nelle and Shiloh had their “little secret”. Just glad we didn’t have to wait years for this story line to play out.

I just wish the baby part would finally come to an end and all learn the baby is really Nelle’s and Micheal’s…i suppose Willow will fight for custody ect and thats where all will finally be revealed in a courtroom..,Shouldnt Willow go back to her original name since she only changed it to hide from Shiloh…didnt care for the poorly done Shiloh story…this twist with Nelle was unexpected but seems forced…also wish Nina learns she gave birth to fraternal twins Sasha and Willow…GH has improved somewhat tho…

I had said as much, Jimmy—but, I don’t see my post. Nelle could very well claim the baby by saying that as Shiloh’s wife, she has rights. This is a soap where anything goes..
Brad has sliwly, but sure come unhinged and the situation can only get worse. I do think this has gone on long enough. There’s no more expectancy, no bated-breath anticipation. So, the truth should be revealed.
The only problem is Wiley having Nelle as his mother. Bummer!!
—-albeit, I must say, Chloe is phenominal in the role. Love the actress!!

Oops, that should read, “slowly, but surely”— Nelle is a mini replica of Ava—-love her or hate her; the acting is impeccable.
No hypocricy—-such as Carly. I am still waiting for Sonny’s, Jason’s, Peter’s and Carly’s comeuppance.
Carly, to me, is Victor/Victoria—-in her case, an impersonator of righteousness—-same as Peter.

I keep thinking Brad will snap an d attempt to kill Nelle…just a thought!

Hey, Jimmy—-long time—hope your new year started on the right foot? LOL….
Yeah—Brad is about to bust. Your “thought” may prove you right. You’re so good at “diagnosing” the future.
I doubt Nelle is in PC for the long haul—–too much of a distraction—-then again, that’s the soap world. Chloe is so good at causing mischief and dark clouds.
Do you think Brad and Lucas are out the door?

Oh Celia, don’t you love the irony? The same day Nelle returns, self-righteous Carly is helping Sam break the law by seeing Jason IN HER OWN HOUSE, then suggests playing dirty by getting rid of the probation officer by underhanded tactics. Glad I’m not an upstanding citizen like her.

Yeah, Soaphound—-I’ll never understand how two women (where free-for-all, and musical beds seem to be every soap’s staple) can be so chummy with each after sleeping with the same men—-especially one’s husband. All in the family—- I must be from another dimension. LOL—Born in the wrong century?? The hypocrisy abounds!! The idea that Avery was given to Carly and Sonny, but not Ava, is such an abomination; it boggles the mind. I will never see eye-to-eye with these writers. Here’s Carly!! Model of wifely duties and propriety—and, there’s Sam in the throes of young, maidenly love, breaking the law by… Read more »

Nelle should have been in the nut house instead of prison. At least there she could have got some lessons from Heather Webber on how to reconnect with the kid you gave away.

I love Nelle!! Anyone who causes misery for Carly and Sonny gets an A Plus in my books! It doesn’t hurt that the actress playing her is fantastic!!! Its just funny, that in a year and a half, no one has commented “Gee its funny how much that baby resembles Michael and Nelle.”

What about the harm Nelle has done to Joslyn, Michael and her son! Don’t they count? I can’t wait for everyone to find out the truth about the baby. Everyone will jump on Nelle the psychopath.

Amen, Colin! Chloe Lanier is amazing and has singlehandedly reenergized GH for me. Her acting choices are so original and she even allows Nelle a wicked sense of humor that the show needs. Yes, the Wiley tale has taken up way too much screen time but I have a feeling the best is yet to come!

Celia

Agreed, Colin—-I’ve been mulling over which twist the PTB will pursue with Nelle—there are two paths her brain will take: she tries to claim the baby as Shiloh’s widow and therefore, also claim Oscar’s shares………. By the same token, Nelle may quench her avaricious thirst by spilling the truth……that she’s Wiley’s bio mother and as such she has rights. I wonder if she has any love for her baby. Chloe is so impressive as an actress, I welcome any scene with her. I would love to see Michael go to war with Nelle……problem is, she fights dirty—-and, I’m one who… Read more »

The character reminds me so much of how Heather started out. I enjoy this character. She needs a little heart though. I need to sympathize with her.

There is nothing sympathetic about Nelle the psychopath. She needs to loose e everything and have her son grow up to hate her.

Nutty Nelle keeps other characters on their toes. The Q shareholder meeting (and its aftermath) were classic GH. The bickering, then the family uniting behind a common cause. Kudos to Amanda Setton (Brook Lynn) who got all up in Nelle’s grill. Even milquetoast Michael comes alive in scenes with Mrs. Archer.

As others have mentioned, Nelle, in many ways, is the new Heather. Hopefully, we get a good serving, then she goes away for a bit, then comes back to wreak havoc.

Steve, I LOVE that you called her Mrs. Archer…you just know she’s gonna milk that name for all it’s worth! And we may now have a use for Brook Lynn after all.

She is a good actress and she gets under everyone’s skin, its a win win! I really thought Kristina was the one under the veil. They should keep Daisy around. Maybe her and Nelle become BF’s!

Apparently, TPTB never got our memo, most of us hated the Shiloh story. Make it end. Stop the insanity, this show is already down the tubes!

Please have someone eliminate Nelle Bensen. Her storyline and Shiloh’s storyline are getting really boring and predictable. I was happy when she was off the show for awhile.

Since there’s been no reports of her signing a new contract, maybe that’s the plan? Kill off Nelle just in time for February sweeps.

Or May sweeps… if the ImOrangement trial results in several weeks of preemptions.

They should do a story with Nelle attempting to stop the impeachment and we learn Trump knows her-lol

If this were a real match-up, my money would be on Nelle. She could eat Trump for lunch.

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
