General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) will continue to fume over Julian Jerome’s (William deVry) decision to marry Nelle Benson Jerome (Chloe Lanier). Sonny can tell this has blackmail written all over it, but he still warned Julian to annul the marriage. Julian isn’t willing to do that, but marrying Julian has honestly hurt Nelle’s case anyway!
There’s a good chance Nelle’s going to score joint or even full custody, but it’s doubtful it’ll be because of Julian and his shady past. Nelle’s real shot at an ally is Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), who may end up supporting Nelle on the stand.
Nina vowed to tell the truth, so she may admit she thinks Nelle deserves a chance to be a mom – especially if Nina catches a glimpse of that half-heart pendant.
What happens after Nelle potentially walks away with custody rights of Wiley Quartermaine-Corinthos (Erik and Theo Olson)? Julian may be Sonny’s enemy, but Sonny can understand that Julian loves that little boy.
Since Nelle doesn’t know the first thing about being a good mother, it’s probably for the best that she married Julian. At least he can make sure Wiley’s properly cared for.
In other words, Sonny would be better off thinking of Julian as an ally in this instance. In fact, this might be the ideal opportunity for adversaries to come together over a mutual nemesis. Both Sonny and Julian would like to eliminate Nelle’s threat to Wiley.
Of course, Julian would also like to get rid of Nelle’s leverage, but she’s made arrangements so that the truth will still come out if she goes missing. Even so, Nelle only knows what she overheard. There’s no tangible proof against Julian, so he could probably avoid legal ramifications.
Julian is already dead to Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) and Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) over this Nelle marriage anyway, so Sonny is the main problem here. Would Julian be better off coming clean to Sonny about the baby swap and murder attempt on Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) that went wrong?
If Julian falls on his sword and suggests working together to defeat Nelle, Sonny might be willing to go for the idea. After all, Julian’s in the prime position to bring Nelle down. As Nelle’s new husband and Wiley’s stepdad, Julian will be close enough to potentially trip Nelle up.
If Nelle’s previous crimes can be exposed or she walks into a setup involving other illegal activities, she could land back behind bars. Then again, Julian and Sonny might have a more deadly outcome in mind if it comes to that.
Regardless, desperate times call for desperate measures! Sonny may have to decide he hates Nelle more than Julian and rely on Julian for help.
