General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Julian Jerome (William deVry) will feel backed into a corner during the week of August 17-21. GH fans know Julian was forced to marry Nelle Benson Jerome (Chloe Lanier), but it’s obvious to pretty much everyone in Port Charles that he was blackmailed into it.
Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) even confirmed Nelle’s blackmail on the stand, so it’s no secret that she has dirt on Julian.
Of course, that dirt involves Julian’s involvement in the baby switch cover-up and the fact that he tampered with the brakes on Brad Cooper’s (Parry Shen) car.
The latter led to Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) nearly dying, so Nelle knows she’s sitting on some huge stuff. Sonny just might kill Julian if Nelle unleashes everything she’s in the loop on.
Nelle thinks Julian will have to keep playing by her rules, but she may not be able to for much longer. That brings us to the corner Julian will feel backed into. Julian might find out about Nelle’s plan to kidnap Wiley Quartermaine-Corinthos (Erik and Theo Olson) and leave the country with him.
That’s the kind of thing that might force Julian to intervene – whether Nelle blows up his world or not.
Then again, Julian may simply decide that being married to Nelle is a fate worse than death! It might even be a combination of discovering Nelle’s abduction plot and just being sick of her.
Julian could easily threaten to expose Nelle’s latest kidnapping scheme and announce that the deal’s off. It might serve as a wake-up call and make Julian realize that he can’t let Nelle have so much control.
Regardless, Julian will have to make a decision that changes his life on August 21. Perhaps Julian will decide to rat out Nelle, annul his marriage or both! General Hospital already got what they wanted out of this union, which was a courtroom shocker.
It was amusing to watch Nelle burst in in a bridal gown and reveal Julian as her new hubby, but maybe it’s time to move on.
Will Julian be pushed to his limit? Will Julian demand an annulment and cause Nelle to retaliate as promised? As other GH news and updates emerge, we’ll keep you posted.
