‘General Hospital’: 5 Reasons Carly Should Forgive Nelle on ‘GH’

General Hospital spoilers wonder if Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) should give Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) another chance now that she knows the truth about their childhood connection. Of course, Nelle’s upbringing was awful. So, deep down, she desperately wants Carly to love her. Perhaps, the mob mom can find it in her heart to start over with her pseudo-sister on ABC daytime.

#1 Carly Corinthos is No Angel on General Hospital

Longtime GH viewers know Carly Corinthos has a long history of shady behavior. Over the years, Carly did terrible things and hurt a lot of people. Carly will do anything to protect her loved ones on General Hospital. Especially her children. Remember, she lied about her son Michael Corinthos’ (Chad Duell) paternity on GH.

And, she destroyed her mother Bobbie Spencer’s (Jacklyn Zeman) life because she felt rejected. Now, that’s what Nelle Hayes is doing to Carly Corinthos. So, if she and Bobbie can bury the hatchet and forge a real relationship, then why not Carly and Nelle? Of course, it will take time. But, they are not much different, and Nelle Hayes may change for the better if Carly accepts her as a family member on General Hospital.

#2 Nelle Hayes’ Childhood Damaged Her on GH

Nelle Hayes may get a pass on General Hospital because her childhood was so crappy. Remember, Frank Benson raised her, and he was a terrible example of how a human being should behave. Frank always tried to get rich and would use any means necessary to do it. He even sold his daughter’s kidney to make it happen on GH.

So, growing up, Nelle Hayes thought that was the way to act. No doubt, that’s what Nelle always chases wealthy men and plots their deaths to get rich. So, it’s not all her fault that she’s the way she is on General Hospital. And, she terrorized Carly Corinthos further because she didn’t remember or embrace her as Nelle expected.

#3 Mental Illness May Be to Blame – General Hospital Twist

Additionally, Nelle Hayes may suffer from mental illness which may be the reason she is so devious on GH. Surely, Carly Corinthos can understand and empathize with that. Remember, she herself suffered from severe postpartum depression after Michael was born. And, her husband Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) suffers from bipolar disorder on General Hospital.

Also, so did her late son Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig). So, if Nelle Hayes has a disorder of some sort Carly should understand. And, if Nelle gets treatment and gets it under control they may be able to start over on GH. Now, Carly should be sympathetic if Nelle’s actions were out of her control. And, if Carly Corinthos is on her side Nelle may very well turn things around on General Hospital.

#4 Carly and Nelle are Like Sisters on GH

General Hospital fans know Nelle Hayes and Carly Corinthos are somewhat like sisters. And, all Nelle ever wanted was for Carly to treat her as such. Remember, Carly Corinthos let several people slide for many different reasons over the years. In fact, her current husband Sonny has hurt her more times than she can count on GH.

And, she has no problem forgiving him. So, if Carly can show Nelle she truly forgives her she may be the key to her redemption on General Hospital. And, that will be good for everyone including her son and grandson. If Nelle Hayes turns over a new leaf then Wiley and Michael benefit the most on GH.

#5 For the Sake of Wiley on General Hospital

GH followers know the central figure in the current Nelle Hayes saga is Wiley. Now, Nelle won’t give up her fight for him. So, instead of Carly Corinthos focusing on getting rid of her sort-of-sister, maybe she should try to help her change. Then, Wiley could have a good mother and father in his life. After all, that’s what Carly wants for her grandson on General Hospital.

So, if Carly can let bygones be bygones, Nelle may stop trying to destroy her family and work to be a part of it instead. Be sure not miss GH episodes when they are all-new to find out if Carly Corinthos can ever forgive Nelle Hayes for all she has put her through on the ABC sudser.
