General Hospital’s (GH) Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) may have allowed her emotions to cloud her judgment when it came to Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier), but how long before she follows her gut instinct? Carly is very street smart, and now that her mother Bobbie Spencer (Jacklyn Zemen) is onto Nelle, it won’t be long until Carly figures things out.
Fans have been speculating that Carly is Nelle’s biological mother but there simply is no way that could happen. So what if they were sisters? Nelle arrived in Port Charles with a vendetta. No one at the time knew who she was other than the girl who was forced to donate her kidney to Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) so her father could pay off some old debts.
Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) has been spending a lot of time with Nelle and when he was with her at her place, he knocked a box over to reveal the silver baby rattle and we learned that the name Caroline was engraved on it. Caroline is Carly’s real name, and since Bobbie gave her up at birth, the only people who would have that rattle would be her adopted parents, so how did Nelle get her hands on it?
Nelle was looking at the rattle today saying its one more thing Carly discarded. Nelle has a lot of resentment towards Carly; clearly implying that Nelle knows about Carly’s sordid past. It is highly unlikely that Nelle could be her daughter because there is no way Carly would have had another child and not remembered, and it would be an exact repeat of what Carly did to Bobbie when she first came to town.
Although we have been left hanging, this could also explain how Jasper “Jax” Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) was able to find Nelle so easily. When their daughter, Josslyn got so sick, Jax could have been investigating Carly’s past to see if he could find a familial match, instead he found out that Carly had a younger sister.
Nelle’s hatred for Carly may simply be because Carly was the one who got all the attention and Nelle was left feeling like she was the child her family never want. Nelle had to grow up hearing about Caroline and how wonderful she was; that resentment grew much more when she was forced to sell her kidney to help Joss. It is also possible that Carly was long gone before Nelle even arrived, meaning Carly may not even know that Nelle even existed.
Many General Hospital fans insist that she can’t be Carly’s adopted sister because she was a match for Josslyn, but it is entirely possible for a total stranger to donate a kidney. How do you think Carly is going to react when she learns who Nelle really is?
