While that is still a mystery, we keep going back to her having a Spencer connection. It’s funny how it was always Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) who thought there was something up with the young woman. Now, she doesn’t seem to remember her having her sister’s young face, but remember Bobbie was a small child the last time she saw her sister as a teen and may not remember much. It was also a traumatic last day as both her parents were killed and Pat put her and Luke on a bus bound for Florida that night. For all we know, Pat had another daughter except for Valerie who she gave up for adoption.
Even Executive Producer Frank Valentini told Michael Fairman: “The other thing I would like to say about the story with Nelle and Carly is that it also lets us dip back into the history of fan favorite Jackie Zeman, who we all adore and love.”
While there’s still the slight hitch in this theory due to the possible romance brewing between Michael and Nelle, maybe the reason Nelle knows to stay just friends with Michael is because she realizes they are related, although he doesn’t.
We still think Bobbie is the key here, and it will be interesting to watch the dynamic between her and Nelle play out as we finally uncover the character’s backstory in 2017.
