Whoa Nelly! General Hospital has got quite the little schemer on their hands with the character of Nelle (Chloe Lanier)!
And now viewers have witnessed her first big maneuver! She slipped a little something into Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) drink, which basically made him quite out of it. She then looks to have recorded it on her phone. Then on Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama, Sonny wakes up and is shocked to find himself in bed with none other than Nelle. A confused Sonny still reeling from Nelle’s “news” that Carly (Laura Wright) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher) were sleeping together, questioned her on how they got to this place.
A tearful and lying Nelle says they were both lonely and needed each other, and that one thing let to another. Nelle then cries that it shouldn’t have happened, and pleads with Sonny not to say anything to Carly. After all, Carly has been so good to her, she would never wanted to betray her! Yeah, right!
Carly and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) have to say goodbye to Jax, who is called back to Australia, because he learns his mother, Lady Jane, is quite ill. It’s a bittersweet goodbye, but then Carly finally picks up her phone and sees the message left by Sonny. She is now beginning to realize she has been tough on Sonny and is leaning towards making amends so they can both grieve the loss of their son together.
Later, Carly pays Sonny a visit just when he is upstairs with Nelle! When Carly and Sonny talk downstairs, as per usual, Nelle is eavesdropping as CarSon talk’s about Jason’s (Billy Miller) investigation of who planted the bomb in Julian’s (William deVry) car that killed Morgan. She then admits to Sonny she has been punishing him, and it’s not fair, and wants them to try to heal together. Just then, Carly looks up and sees two liquor glasses and asks Sonny, who was there with him last night?
Elsewhere, an unraveling Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) after receiving a visit from Jax (where she confessed to running down Julian and promises him she will seek rehab for her drinking problem) is trying to cope. Later, Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) stops by. She lets Alexis know that Julian is in the hospital. She warns Alexis to be careful. And from their conversation, Alexis gleans Julian doesn’t remember who ran him over! Next thing you know, Alexis gets a phone call from Julian. He tells her to come visit him in the hospital now. It’s the least she could do! Alexis becomes further unglued. Will she hit the bottle some more before visiting Julian?
