General Hospital spoilers say Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) has more scenes next week in a prison showdown with Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati). Dr O doesn’t waste any more time before she goes to see Nelle. The sinister doc knows that knowledge is power and now she has two critical secrets about top people in Port Charles. One is about the jailbird and the other about the wicked Cassadine. Will she push her edge or be forgiving for the holidays?
General Hospital Spoilers: Liesl Obrecht Faces Down Nelle Hayes
Next week, GH spoilers reveal that there is not a new episode of the ABC soap until Wednesday. Monday’s show is a rerun from 2005 and there is no General Hospital on Christmas due to sports. But mid-week, we get a new one. Liesl Obrecht confronts Nelle at the prison and lets her know she’s busted. Nelle thought she got away with tricking Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) about the baby. But Dr O knows better. That child wasn’t still born and she and the baby mama know it.
Nelle Hayes is terrified that Obrecht will give her secret away. The schemer wants to punish Michael for what she sees as a betrayal. Plus, she doesn’t want her stepsister Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) to raise her son. Because she knows the Corinthos family will bad mouth her to the kid. She wants him to stay with Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) and Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes). But her fate (and her son’s) is in Liesl’s hands. So what will the doc do with this powerful information?

GH Spoilers – Will Dr O Pay It Forward?
The conversation between Nelle and Obrecht could have been quite different. They might have been spending time side by side, both in orange jumpsuits. But Peter August (Wes Ramsey) cut her a break. He refused to cooperate with the cops so they had to cut her loose. In fact, she could have spent life behind bars for her crimes. So will Liesl Obrecht cut Nelle a break or will she use what she knows against the troubled young woman?
Next week on General Hospital, we see the outcome. Just as Obrecht said she would keep Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) secret about the fake daughter, she decides to keep Nelle’s too. Certainly, the blond is thrilled to know that her son will remain with his adoptive fathers. After all, Obrecht has no motive to help Michael recover his son. She has no allegiance to the Corinthos family and so no reason to play this card – at least for now.
How Long Will Michael Be Kept From His Son?
Although the German doc won’t expose Nelle Hayes now, the truth will still come out. It’s inevitable. General Hospital spoilers indicate Chloe Lanier was back just for this short scene and may do more in the future here and there. But even without Nelle confessing or Obrecht spilling the beans, there are other ways for it to come out. The GH rerun episode on Monday is worth watching and it seems the Powers That Be chose that one for a reason. It offers history and context on this situation.
Longtime watchers remember that Carly lied about Michael’s paternity when he was born. Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) pretended to be her baby daddy. Michael had the Quartermaine family heart defect. So, on this episode, Jason decided to have the surgery done on Michael even though legally, he really had no rights. This one reminds General Hospital fans the history of Carly’s fibs when Michael was a baby and the hereditary heart issue. That could still be part of the reveal that Wiley is really Michael’s son.
This won’t be the last we see of Nelle Hayes or Liesl Obrecht. Chloe Lanier was at the soap holiday party and is still close to showrunners. That means she’s open to future appearances. Enjoy the throwback GH on Monday then tune in on Wednesday to see Obrecht versus Nelle.
