This Week On GH, Michael Blasts Nelle: “You Took Everything From My Family!”

Courtesy/ABC

She is a one-woman wrecking ball!  Now, has Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) reign of terror come to an end, or is it just beginning!

As General Hospital viewers saw on Tuesday’s episode, Nelle, who has enlisted Chase (Josh Swickard) to help her, wants Michael (Chad Duell) to die. Meanwhile, Chase and Michael are running their own sting operation to bring Nelle down once and for all.  However, time is running out!

Then, there is Michael’s mother, Carly (Laura Wright).  She is locked away in Fenrcliff, and the staff has decided its time to truly mess with her brain and drug her up even more via horrifying methods.  Carly would not be in this mess, if it weren’t for Nelle’s machinations, and an insanity plea.

However, in the the latest promo from ABC, be on the lookout for a potential major car accident ahead if this is any indication, as Michael tears into Nelle: “You took everything from my family!” Did someone tamper with the breaks of the car?  Will Nelle go MIA? What will happen to the baby she is carrying?

Check out this week’s GH promo and then let us know what you think will happen to Nelle, Michael, and Carly via the comment section below.

Carly is getting a little taste of karma. Jason continues to be a lapdog with no real story of his own. The Dimpled Don will save the day once again. The mental hospital and it’s staff is a joke and the writing is atrocious-especially, in today’s world when people are struggling with mental health issues. I would much rather see real social issues, built on friendships, relationships, and romance-not this drivel.

The thing that these writers forget…and most regimes before them….is that the majority of viewers do not like Sonny or Carly. If the message boards on this site are any indication that is certainly true. So having “poor Carly” in this horrifying position is actually kind of like karma. Carly has spent 22 years on this show being a nasty, miserable bitch to…well…everyone!! She has never done a selfless thing ever…and yet expects constant loyalty from those around her. She is loud, arrogant, bitchy, cruel, mean, selfish and the list goes on! Okay granted…mental abuse and torture is a bit extreme…lol….but I love any story that brings misery to Sonny and Carly because they have doled out death and misery and violence non stop for nearly 20 years. While a lot of viewers have been hating on Nelle, I have been LOVING her! She is played by a dynamite actress AND she hates Sonny and Carly! I have loved every minute of her reign of terror! The writers, both present and past, seem to think that Sonny and Carly are the beloved hero and heroine of the show….but NEWS FLASH! THEYRE NOT!! Sonny is a greasy washed up unrepentant murderer and Carly is the moll who supports his every murder. Those characters are the ones this show has been presenting as the “heart and soul” and the “moral centre” for far too long! Lets hope whatever treatment they zap Carly with, she will come out of it a little nicer!

AGREED. As much as I loved Maurice Bernard, from his All My Children days, to Sonny’s romance with Brenda, I have no sympathy for “Carson.” & Chloe Lanier is superb in this role (albeit, the writing/storyline has been lax, #penguingate).

Jovin; I agree with your sentiments exactly regarding Sonny and Carly! Like…almost to the tee. However, I have to sadly inform you that you are wrong. Sonny and Carly are THE couple on the show! You would not believe the amount of fans they have and the “outrage” this story has caused. Chloe Lanier has been attacked on Twitter because her character has “hurt” their beloved Carly, to the point that Chloe had to get on Twitter to defend herself. Some fans have said they have stopped watching until Carly’s ordeal is over.

Same on Facebook. Out of all the GH groups on FB the Carly/Sonny fans are in abundance. If you “dare” speak against Carly and say the things you just said you’d find yourself besieged with Carly fans wanting to rip your head off your facebook pic! And if you “dare” like Ava and cringe every time Carly holds Avery as if she’s her own, or cringed when Avery called her “mommy” you’re once again assaulted and told all the reasons Carly is sooooo much better than “evil” Ava.

Sadly, the writers read all these boards and I’m afraid the support is much more for rather than against the loud-mouthed, conniving, manipulative, arrogant self-imposed Queen that is Carly. I have loved every bit of karma she had swing back in her direction; my only regret is that she’ll be out way too soon and back to her smug, intolerable self.

We’re in the minority. Difficult to fathom why but it is the case. I can’t stand the character.

Rebecca1…Since I only indulge in MF, and no facebook etc,, I had no idea of the huge support for Sonny and Carly. Just another thing I shake my head over. But I still don’t like what is happening at Ferncliff to Carly. Would rather see some other kind of karma. Don’t know what because all soaps have exhausted car accidents, explosions, being shot, fires, Pier 54…..

Yes, Rose. It’s hideous. She’s the heroine of many, many fans. Any assault to her is as if she’s real and a part of their family. And, the fans who don’t agree rarely speak out for fear of being attacked. The “Nell” hatred is palpable and as said, some claim they have stopped watching until Carly is set free.

They feel “Carly” has changed, she’s evolved and see none of the smug, arrogance that prances around each day. They defend everything she says and does but think Ava is evil incarnate. They think she’s the perfect mother (ignoring the fact that she chose to bring up her children in a world of violence; that she went back to that world over and over again even after Michael was almost killed, was jailed and raped.) They think SHE’s the mother who should be raising Avery because of her “great” parenting while Ava is the “evil” who doesn’t love her children. The entire reaction en masse is just as incomprehensible as the support for some real life people. Human nature; mystery of life.

I’m pretty sure Nelle will get killed since Chloe Lanier is leaving the show. As for the baby, I can’t guess. I originally thought Brad and Lucas were getting her baby when they were talking about adoption but now I’m not so sure the story is going that way.

I think nell survives the crash but dies divering the baby.

Hey, James…..you probably did not read my posts ( a few of them on the subject), but, I had this feeling since Brad and Lucas came back on the ‘scene’.
Somehow ( call it intuition), I knew that they would play an intertwining role with Nelle’s pregnancy…..too much of a coincidence….writing on the wall.
And then it happened! Whiley probably died of SIDS. Everything fell into place…..the baby-switcheroo is alive and well….since the beginning of the soap-world.
I wasn’t sure how, at the time….and, I doubt the PTB knew either.
I am only sad that a baby had to die–fiction or not….it bothers me.
I will miss Nelle….not only because of her superlative acting; but, I must confess, I enjoyed it when she tormented Carly….God forgive me!! Carly deserved that and more.
I am, also, happy that Carly and Sonny will not get their fetid, sinful hands on the new baby, albeit it will be weird if someone starts making comments about the baby’ s remarkable resemblance to Michael?
LOL.

I did love Liesl and Nelle sharing scenes together. Wish we had gotten more of them!!!

I really don’t know who’s writing this crap but really, could we possibly drag this stupid stories out any longer. I’m not saying to rush it a little intrigue is good. But your writers are famous for beating a dead horse. Over and over and over again so for the live of mine put nelle and the rest of us out of our misery. Oh yeah get Carly out of Ferncliff and put your writers in there they need some mental help.

Nelle survives the crash and disappears…secretly and off camera…she gives birth under an alias and its her baby Lucas and Brad adopts..Nelle takes off with the money and goes into hiding!!!…Micheal is hospitalized!!!…or Nelle dupes Brad and Lucas and takes off with both the money and the baby!!!

Brad and Lucas have their baby. I think Nell dies without getting off the hook. Brad and Lucas baby is Finn and Haydens

Whats the point? We know Nelle is leaving and Vanilla Michael will live for another failed future relationship!

Poor Mikey…..

Only decent girlfriend he ever had was Abby the ex-stripper, who apparently had a steel girder dropped on her head unexpectedly (or whatever the lame off screen death was)

Never a good match with Psycho Nelle, Disney Princess Cinderbrina, or any variation of StarrKikiTwit.

They should bring back Serena Baldwin. Put him with an actual legacy kid, for Hell’s sake.

Serena would be good for Michael and the actress who played her could act!

I like Hayley Erin and think she’s doing a great job with the sexual harassment/Griffin material. StarrKiki never could have carried these storylines, IMO.

To be fair, Haley’s grown into the part. I just wish they would use the character’s actual name, Lauren, and remove all association with the fact that the character was initially only created so ReRon & Frankie could keep their little bubble gum auto-tune no talent princess on a show where she never belonged to begin with, once the Prospect Park thing happened.

“Kiki” was a dumb name, suited for the non-actress originally in the role. Still don’t think she’s a good match for Michael though. Might have been one for Morgan, had her mother not ruined that.

I agree, and have said many times, to ditch the name Kiki and start referring to the character as Lauren.

As long as there’s a slight possibility that Laura will return, they’ll never use the name Lauren — too similar. GH had 2 Lauras in the early 80’s (Laura Spencer and Laura Templeton — played by Janine Turner) but that was a plot point.

Yes, I know there’s a Mac and a Max, but The bodyguard was never a major contract role.

Michael is such a bozo/dumbo. I always get a kick out of when he pretends to be rough and tough (like when he wanted to take over Sonny’s business). The Moron was a petulant brat but is mentioned everyday and sainted in death. I’m not interested in Joss & the teen scene. I’m interested in real-life social issues that feature love, romance, friendships, and relationships-NOT “The Peter Hour” and not how “Carson” will prevail, once again.

Well It never cease to amaze me how some GH fans don’t realize Carson is the heart of the show good or bad. And as far as Karma goes Carson and Jason had their share, i.e Michael’s coma, Morgan’s death and before all that Sonny lost Lily and his unborn child to a car bomb meant for him. But Ava, Nelle, Jacks, Julian, Rick and the most selfish hypocrite of them all Elizabeth Webber get’s off easy. I can go on and on but I never remember Sonny or Jason deliberately hurt anyone the trouble always seem to come to them and yes they take care business by any means necessary. Long live the Corinthos and Morgan Organization because with out them the show will surely perish.

JoBren haven’t been watching long have you. Never hurt anyone. ???in the discussion..Carly drugged and poured Booze over a dry alcoholic, dumped him in a garage. Sonny tied him on meat hooks tried to pour booze over him, made him sign away his child ,Under threat of death. Sonny paid Jason to kille people two gun cowboy . Sonny has shot people in cold blood, shot AJ in cold blood, and when he didn’t die right away, he went to the hospital and kept threatening him. Carly came to town, slept with Bobbies husband, truend him nuts telling half the town they were Michaels father. She hated Bobbie giving her up why ? because she lived in a brothel. ?ever hurt anyone. ? Go to You Tube and look up this.
GO NELLE !!!!

Good job setting the record straight. No one should shed a tear over Sonny or Carly.

I loved AJ, played by Sean Kanan. Sadly, TPTB decimated The Q’s, and his character. There was so much potential with AJ, Jason (Quartermaine), and their brotherhood. I always wanted Jason to return as Jason QUARTERMAINE and toss “Carson” aside. Jason returns, does not speak, and continues to be a lapdog.

I’m with you, Janet.

I have not been watching long, Bren….but, it took me two episodes to read Sonny and Carly….plus, the history of the crimes these two have committed blows the mind.
They deserve an award for the most heinous characters on GH.
So, I’m not sure which show you’ve been watching…..with all due respect.

Anvils we’re dropping constantly on Thursday’s episode to set up a car wreck between Michael/Nelle and Brad/Wiley.

Looks like we’ll have another roadside delivery with one of the babies not making it. And then a switch. Just who gets the live baby is the question.

Of course, with these writers, they’ll ignore the fact a newborn baby will be a lot messier than one delivered 24 hours ago. At least Nelle won’t deliver with pants on.

This is my last argument about Carson and Jason. AJ alcoholism created Jason Morgan, Those wonderful Q’s mainly Alan, Monica and dear old Edward created AJ’s drinking by putting him down and pitting the two boys against each other. AJ was willing to claim Sonny’s child as his own had Sonny never figured it out so AJ was going to steal a child from Sonny first. Different methods but stealing is stealing. Again you must not really be watching the show either the only person Sonny ever shot in cold blood was Dante he was a undercover officer and regardless that was wrong for Sonny to shoot a unarmed officer. But again that was Olivia’s fault she lied and covered up the truth about his paternity. I agree with her wanting to protect Dante when he was a child. But she should have stepped up and told Sonny who Dante was she knew no harm would have come to him please. I dont condone murder at all or most of the things Carly has done but to her credit she dont hide who she is unlike angelic Elizabeth. Last but not least Jason has never been a lap dog he has taking the business from Sonny at least twice when he knew it was necessary. So I have a question could it be his heritage (Sonny Maurice Benard) that you don’t like.

Johnny Wactor’s Co-Worker, Anita Joy, Speaks Out For First Time Since His Fatal Shooting and Saving Her Life

Those who knew Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin, GH) were well aware of what an upstanding man he was. As tributes poured in when news that the General Hospital alum was shot and killed by one of three car thieves, they all spoke to his qualities as a human being.

Over the first 24 hours since his passing, the public learned Wactor lost his life putting himself in front of a female co-worker when confronted by his assailants, following their shift at a downtown LA bar. The thieves were attempting to steal his catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Now. Wactor’s former co-work, Anita Joy, has spoken out for the first time via her Instagram account of what happened on that fateful morning and her remembrances accompanied by photos and videos with Johnny.  As many now know, Johnny died a hero.

Anita began, “I’ve needed to take some time to collect myself and my thoughts. I was with Johnny in his last moments and I’m here to be his voice after such unimaginable events. His story is in this post as it happened, please swipe through the top photos and read it. Early Saturday morning (May 25) after our bartending shift Friday night at Level 8 in DTLA.”

“He was killed senselessly by a coward who reacted without care of the gorgeous life he was taking,” Joy shared.  So, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m all of the feelings and once … but above all, I am here for Johnny’s justice. My friend of 8 years went from laughing together, working side by side, leaving our bartending shift and walking to our cars, to him dying in my arms in the street of DTLA in the dark hours of 3am.”

She went on to say, “Everything happened in an instant. I’ve come to describe it as a glass of water that gets tipped over and you’re scrambling to grab it and save it from spilling out completely but it just runs through your fingertips and is gone.” Joy said that she and Wactor, “cautiously approached the men questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed.”

“We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace, Joy recounted. “Johnny was between me and the man who shot him – as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms as I grabbed for him I shouted, ‘Hunny, you OK?’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ Joy went on to say that she and Johnny “toppled onto the street” where she was trying to hold his body up as she was screaming for help and screaming at Johnny to “stay with me.”

Next, Joy details that a security guard named Bryan ran into the street and phoned 911. Anita wrote, “I’m so thankful for Bryan showing up, trying with all his might to save Johnny. My only peace is that I was him and this didn’t happen to him alone. My other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice.”

Speaking on Wactor’s character, Joy added, “Johnny had this incredible ability that was truly just his genuine nature – to make anyone and everyone feel so special in his eyes. No matter how well you knew him, he treated everyone like he truly cared about you. He lit up any room – you couldn’t not smile around him. His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him. He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you.”

“He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values, he never put people down, even when joking, he never made you feel unsure of yourself – he knew how to be hilarious in such a positive way and it just made him that much more lovable. It just filled your heart to be around him,” she recalled.  Johnny made you love him instantly,” Joy added. “Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have been a part of his world and him, mine. My heart is shattered with his loss but I believe l have gained the best guardian Angel out there.  I love you Johnny Wacky.”

Anita then addressed the crime that took Johnny’s life and how Level 8 did not provide parking for its late night shift workers.  Joy explained, “These criminals need to be caught – Level 8 needs to provide parking for their late hour staff as they originally promised- This cannot be something that isn’t responded to with action, it needs to be addressed in a manner to prevent anything like this ever happening again to the best of their ability – Level 8 needs to contribute to Johnny’s family to honor and respect him for all the hard work and effort he did for them.”

Speaking on GoFundMe page that has been set for Wactor, Anita spoke about Johnny’s family, expressing, “They are on the other side of the country and it’s going to be a lot on them emotionally and financially to get Johnny home to them.”

What do you think about Anita’s account of Johnny dying in her arms after shielding her from the thieves who were trying to steal his catalytic converter in his car? Her remembrances of the man she became friends and co-workers with? Comment below.
