General Hospital seemed to confirm that Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) is Nina Reeves‘ (Cynthia Watros) missing child — dashing hopes it would be Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen). However, because it’s a soap, there could be another twist in store. There are a couple of ways GH could shake it up again on the ABC sudser.
General Hospital Fans Hope Nelle Hayes is Not Nina’s Daughter
GH spoilers know some fans think in the flashback scene, young Nelle Hayes’ necklace looked silver, while Nina Reeves’ is gold. But, the flashbacks were very washed out. So, that threw off the colors. Plus, when Nelle opened her jewlery box, in current time, the necklace was just like Nina’s — and clearly gold.
So, for anyone hoping that changes it, re-watch the General Hospital scenes to see. Clearly, the necklaces match. Thus, the soap may stick with Nelle Hayes as her daughter, tease GH spoilers. No doubt, they a lot in common with troublesome parents and wanting love. Also, it seems to be more than just coincidence that Nelle Hayes is in Nina Reeves’ orbit again on General Hospital.
GH Spoilers – Nelle’s Timeline Fits for Nina Reeves
General Hospital spoilers indicate there are many reasons to believe Nelle Hayes is the lost daughter of Nina Reeves. Remember, Frank Benson (portrayed by James Patrick Stuart) was raising Nelle alone – no mother in sight. So, he might have done a private adoption and got paid a pretty penny for doing so. Then, the cash ran out, and he probably didn’t know who to blackmail to try and get more.
Also, Nelle is the right age and build — and she Nina are both blondes on GH. Besides that, Nelle had no mom we’ve seen, and Nina’s little girl is still out there somewhere. Additionally, General Hospital recaps remind Nina’s got some mental issues (like Nelle). Remember when she stole Ava Jerome’s (Maura West) baby?
Then, she did time in a mental institution. So, their behavior isn’t much different. Plus, being Nina’s kid may be Nelle’s path to redemption. Because if Nina believes Nelle’s her daughter, she’ll go full mama bear to protect her little girl. However, if Nina’s smart, she will run to on General Hospital and order a DNA test first.
But Willow Tait Might Still be the Real Deal – Soap Opera Spoilers
In the past, General Hospital viewers wanted Kiki Jerome (Haley Erin) to be Nina Reeves’ child. Then, after that fell through, fans hoped it would be Willow Tait based on her back and forth with Nina on GH. However, it might still be true, and here’s how.
First, Nelle’s necklace might be just a coincidence. It looks the same, but maybe it doesn’t match perfectly. Or, Nelle might have the real chain and pendant but got it from Dawn of Day after marrying Shiloh Archer.
Remember, she had loyalty from DoD followers. So, it might have been in Harmony Miller’s (Inga Cadranel) things, and that’s how Nelle got her hands on it. Alternately, General Hospital could go all out and make Nelle and Willow secret fraternal (non-identical) twins.
For now, it sure looks like Nelle Hayes is Nina Reeves’ mystery kid, and Willow Tait was a red herring. But you never know – GH can always twist things again. Don’t miss a minute to see if Nelle Hayes is Nina Reeves’ biological daughter or if it’s Willow Tait after all on the ABC drama.
