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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

Satan
Guest

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.

Dmr

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

Steve

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.

Bren
Guest

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… Read more »

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 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.

Bren

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… Read more »

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Courtesy/ABC

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

Courtesy/ABC

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
