General Hospital villainess Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) may be redeemable even after all her despicable deeds. Of course, even some of the most beloved characters in GH history were guilty of terrible things at one point. So, here’s five reasons Nelle can turn things around on ABC daytime.
#1 Nelle Hayes and Her Rotten Childhood on General Hospital
GH viewers may recall Nelle Hayes had a rough time as a kid. Remember, her father was Frank Benson, who was a gambler and couldn’t hold a job. So, they were always broke and struggling on General Hospital. Then, things took a turn for the worst when Nelle’s mother died.
Then, Frank couldn’t handle the finances or raise Nelle Hayes. Of course, she’s made poor choices on GH, but look who she had as a role model. Nelle watched her father do horrible things to get wealthy. So, she did the same. Now, there’s a good chance she could end up on the path to redemption due to her awful upbringing on General Hospital.
#2 Lowlife Dad Stole her Kidney on GH
To make matters worse on General Hospital, Nelle Hayes’ father Frank stole her kidney from her body when she was a minor. Next, they were out of money and about to lose their home. Then, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) offered Frank one million dollars if he could find a kidney for his daughter Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) on GH. So, the slimeball brought his daughter to some shady clinic and had her kidney removed.
Also, her parents told her she needed the surgery to get healthy, recall General Hospital spoilers. Of course, there was nothing wrong with her. Then, after the surgery, their financial situation magically improved, which she thought strange. So, that would messed up anyone, right? No doubt, that’s a reason to redeem Nelle Hayes on GH.
#3 Nina Deserves to Get Her Daughter on General Hospital
Of course, another reason for Nelle Hayes to change her ways on GH is for Nina Reeves’ (Cynthia Watros) sake. If Nelle is Nina’s daughter, she deserves to reconnect with her after all this time. Clearly, it’s not Nina’s fault her mother stole her child from her womb on General Hospital. So, if Nina is Nelle’s mom, she could be the one to help her change things on GH.
Of course, she knows what it’s like to be in a dark place and make terrible choices. Remember, Nina did some questionable things as well in the past. Now, she already feels bad for Nelle Hayes and sees herself in her. So, when new episodes come back on, we may see a new side to Nelle. And, it may be the start of a mother-daughter relationship between them on General Hospital.
#4 – Wiley Deserves Two Decent Parents on GH
No doubt, the best reason to change Nelle’s character for the better is for her son Wiley on General Hospital. Of course, the little boy deserves two functional biological parents. Now, Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) is a great father to his son. Of course, it seems unlikely they would reconcile and become a family on GH.
However, they can still successfully co-parent if Nelle Hayes changes her ways on General Hospital. It would take a lot of time to convince Michael that Nelle is a different person. But you need to start somewhere. So, if Nelle can prove herself, she and Michael may be able to raise Wiley together and give him a good life on GH.
#5 Nelle Desperate for Carly to Be Her Sister on General Hospital
Recently on GH, Nelle Hayes told Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) the real reason she wants to punish her. It’s because when Nelle first arrived in Port Chuck, Carly didn’t recognize her. Of course, Nelle Hayes hoped they would be sisters, but was sadly mistaken on General Hospital. So, of course, she became angry and lashed out.
However, when Carly first came to town, she destroyed her mother, Bobbie Spencer’s (Jacklyn Zeman), life. So, if Carly and Bobbie could heal after what she put her mom through, why not her and Nelle? Of course, it won’t happen overnight. But, repairing the damage between them would be a great way for Nelle to redeem herself. So, don’t miss GH to find out if there is hope for Nelle Hayes on the ABC sudser.
