Ever since she arrived on General Hospital (GH), has it felt like every. single. step of Nelle’s story been taking forever?
First, we didn’t know who she was. Hey, she’s Joss’ (Eden McCoy) kidney donor.
Then, we didn’t know what Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) agenda was. She was setting it up to make it look like she was sleeping with Sonny (Maurice Benard) because… well, who wouldn’t want to sleep with Sonny?
Then she’s dating Michael (Chad Duell), except maybe she’s a gold-digger who also killed her previous fiance.
Oh, and Nelle is pregnant!
And now the really endless piece begins. Nelle plotted to gaslight Carly (Carly Wright). She made it look like Carly tried to kill her, and now Carly is locked away in Ferncliff. Jason (Steve Burton) and Michael are setting up Nelle to take the fall for all her crimes.
But… uhm… Where’s the fall? Does this story need to pick up the pace? Almost 3,000 hit their stop-watch!
The Beat Goes On
No, 68% cry! You want to watch every beat of this story play out. After all the time you spent watching Nelle scheme, you deserve her punishment to take just as long. This can’t be a quick strike of the guillotine. You want Nelle to suffer! Slowly…
Is this all there is, 25% of you wonder. If this story doesn’t have another twist planned for down the line then, yes, the tale of Nelle’s downfall is dragging. But if something great is coming down the pike, you’re willing to sit back and wait. But it better be worth it!
Get a Move On
Finally, a tiny 6% of the audience is bored out of their skulls. We get it. Nelle is bad. Carly is good. Jason is a hero. You’ve told us before, and you’re going to tell us again. So get on with it already!
