This week on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Michael makes a big move where his relationship with Nelle is concerned. But are his parents right to worry that he could be making a fatal mistake?
The In Depth Story: While she’s done some questionable things in the past — and that’s being rather generous — Michael believes that Nelle is a different woman now.
