Nelle Hayes seems to be working her way into every aspect of Carly’s life. Starting out by coming to Port Charles in response to Nina’s ad searching for Josslyn Jack’s kidney donor, Nelle has played the part of being reluctant participant very well. When she first arrived, Nelle made it a point to make it look as if she was keeping the members of the Corinthos family at arms length… all while she was actually doing quite the opposite.
Nelle’s life story reminds us a lot of Carly’s when she first arrived in Port Charles. Originally played by Sarah Joy Brown, a broken and scarred Caroline Benson came to town on a mission. She was set out to get revenge. After losing her best friend Charlotte “Carly” Roberts who was killed in a car accident, Caroline took on her late best friend’s name and used it to make her way into the lives of the person who abandon her, her biological mother, Bobbie Spencer. Carly then tried to integrate into Bobbie’s life by enrolling in the nursing program at General Hospital. Bobbie wasn’t fond of Carly and this set Carly off even more. Carly then had her sights set on Tony Jones, Bobbie’s husband. She was successful at seducing him and this tarnished any relationship she would have with Bobbie for the foreseeable future.
Nelle also lost a best friend in a car accident. Nelle’s story about losing her best friend mimicked the story Carly told many years ago. And just like Carly moved in on Tony Jones, Nelle is nestling her way closer and closer to Sonny, comforting him in his time of need.
What does Nelle want? She’s bitter about the fact that she has unwillingly given up a kidney to Josslyn. Nelle has made snide comments under her breath regarding Kiki, calling her “Princess” in a sarcastic tone. She also neglected to tell Carly that she saw Morgan that day, knowing that Carly was worried sick about her son’s whereabouts. She’s sneaky to say the least. So who exactly IS Nelle? Some think she is Carly’s daughter, and it’s pretty obvious that Jax knows more about Nelle than he is making known to Carly, Josslyn, and Sonny. Only time will tell as GH spoilers behind to reveal and unravel Nelle’s true agenda. Keep watching General Hospital for the latest drama.
