Can Ja­son, Michael and Chase fi­nally get the goods on Nelle… and set Carly free?

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Cover Story -

So far, GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’s Nelle has man­aged to stay one step ahead of ev­ery­one who would bring her down. But this week, forces are align­ing which could fi­nally bring her down. Be­cause what Nelle doesn’t know is that three dif­fer­ent men are do­ing ev­ery­thing in their power to re­veal her dark­est se­crets… hope­fully, be­fore it’s too late for Carly, who is fac­ing her worst night­mare!

Chase Makes A Con­fes­sion!

Want­ing to be com­pletely hon­est with his boss, Chase fills Jor­dan in on his past with Nelle… and his de­sire to help see her brought to jus­tice! “Chase feels par­tially re­spon­si­ble for the fact that Nelle is still out there de­stroy­ing lives,” ex­plains co-head­writer Shelly Alt­man. “He in­tends to use his past with Nelle to get her to re­veal what she’s been up to. But he wants to be com­pletely up­front with Jor­dan. He’s a stand-up guy, so that’s im­por­tant to him.”

Ja­son’s Get­ting Closer!

With a lit­tle help from Spinelli, Ja­son now has proof that Carly was def­i­nitely be­ing gaslighted. But what comes next? “Ja­son can now prove that Carly wasn’t hal­lu­ci­nat­ing,” says Alt­man, “and that’s a very good thing. On the other hand, it doesn’t prove that Carly didn’t pur­pose­fully push Nelle down the stair­case, and that’s what she was sent away for.”

“It does give Carly hope,” adds co­head­writer Chris Van Et­ten, “and her

loved ones the knowl­edge that she wasn’t to­tally nuts, and she wasn’t hal­lu­ci­nat­ing. She re­ally saw what she claimed she saw. There’s no deny­ing that now!”

Carly Gets A Shock!

“Carly finds her­self sink­ing deeper into the abyss that is


While Carly may not have been nuts when she got that fake phone call from Mor­gan, what hap­pens next just might push her over the edge. When some­one shows up at Fern­cliff claim­ing to be a mem­ber of Carly’s fam­ily, she is ex­cited to have a vis­i­tor. Un­til, that is, she finds out that the per­son who has come to see her is Nelle… who hap­pily shares the news that she and Michael are now en­gaged to be mar­ried!

“Carly knows, thanks to Ja­son, that Michael is do­ing what­ever it takes to pro­tect his fam­ily,” Alt­man re­minds view­ers. “But this de­vel­op­ment com­pletely throws her. Even if she trusts that Michael hasn’t turned against her, she doesn’t trust Nelle at all. She knows this woman is ca­pa­ble of ab­so­lutely any­thing, and she’s wor­ried about the fact that Michael has put him­self into a dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tion!”

In other cir­cum­stances, Carly would prob­a­bly rest easy in the knowl­edge that Sonny would deal with the sit­u­a­tion. But, as Van Et­ten says, “Sonny doesn’t like Michael get­ting so deeply in­volved, but he’s got a lot on his plate right now in deal­ing with Mike. Plus, he’s con­fi­dent in Ja­son’s abil­ity to get to the bot­tom of things.”

Dan­ger From Ev­ery Side!

The big ques­tion is whether or not any­one can ex­pose Nelle be­fore it’s too late! “As Michael, Ja­son and — un­be­knownst at this point to them — Chase work to get the goods on Nelle,” con­cludes Alt­man, “Carly finds her­self sink­ing deeper into the abyss that is Fern­cliff!”

“Do you wanna play tele­phone?”

Ja­son has al­ways pro­tected Sonny’s fam­ily. Will he have to step in to save Michael from Nelle?

“This is very per­sonal for Chase,” says Van Et­ten. “He has good rea­son to want to see Nelle brought down!”

“We’re see­ing a very dif­fer­ent side of Michael,” pre­views Alt­man.
