General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that a hot storyline’s about to get even hotter. After Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) epic staircase tumble, she’ll hold Carly (Laura Wright) responsible and end up at GH. It could create some huge hurdles for Nelle if her baby doesn’t make it. However, her obstacles may not be the expected ones. It looks like GH is about to throw some major curveballs at fans!
Let’s consider what we know so far. Nelle and Brad (Parry Shen) suddenly developed a strong friendship. General Hospital didn’t even bother showing or telling us how that happened. It’s clear that they just needed to get the show on the road. Brad and Nelle’s bond will be crucial in the coming weeks.
We also know that Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) have finalized the adoption with an anonymous birth mother. Nelle was awfully insistent that it was going to happen and she was exactly right. Perhaps she knows far more than she’s letting on. Plus, Brad recently revealed that his baby was set to arrive around the same time as Nelle’s. Things just keep getting more and more suspicious!
In Thursday’s episode, GH offered another potential clue. Nelle received two copies of Goodnight Moon as wishing well presents. Brad said he’d happily let Nelle re-gift one for his bundle of joy. Is General Hospital trying to hint at something? Are they suggesting that Nelle’s kid is also the kid Brad’s set to receive? Two of the same book could equal two babies that are really the same one.
Here’s the plot Nelle might’ve come up with. Perhaps Nelle planned to give this baby up from the get-go. She may have even had herself inseminated with that goal in mind. Having a child with Michael (Chad Duell) could pull him closer, but maybe Nelle has a better idea. She might think that bonding over the loss of their child will strengthen their connection even more.
Nelle may have hoped to push Carly out of the picture, “lose” the baby, gain Michael’s sympathy and give Brad the child he desires. It’s a complex scheme, but Nelle’s a complex gal! If this is indeed Nelle’s plan, actually losing the baby could leave her scrambling. Nelle may have some money coming from her adoption agreement, so she’ll need to honor that to get the cash.
Furthermore, Nelle truly seems to value Brad’s friendship. If she wants to give him a baby, she’ll have to figure something out. That’s where Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) kid might come in. GH has established that Nelle and Maxie loathe each other. Nelle was also jealous when she saw Michael and Maxie bonding at birthing class. Here’s Nelle’s chance to get a good dose of revenge!
General Hospital spoilers say Maxie will be depressed down the road. Peter (Wes Ramsey) will refuse to leave her side, so this could be about her child. What if Nelle’s fall forces an early delivery and leaves the baby in the NICU for a while? Once Maxie gives birth, it’d be easy for Nelle to make a little switcheroo at GH.
It sounds like this multi-baby drama is about to get complicated! We’ll give you updates as other GH news comes in. Stay tuned to the ABC soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest General Hospital spoilers, updates and news.
