General Hospital (GH) spoilers suggest that it’s entirely possible that Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) might pull off a miracle, defeat her former lover Michael Corninthos (Chad Duell) in court, and win full custody of Wiley Cooper-Jones Jones (Erik and Theo Olson).
This might sound outrageous at first glance, but Nelle has skated on a ton of charges in recent episodes. GH fans who’ve been paying attention over the past couple of months have seen the psychotic Nelle watch as her co-conspirator, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen), broke down in tears in front of the entire Corinthos family.
At the time, Brad confessed to his part in Nelle’s evil baby-swapping scheme. As he confessed, he revealed Wiley’s location. This played nicely into Nelle’s hands since she had just received forged documents (including passports and birth certificates) for herself and Wiley from Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). With these documents in hand, and Wiley in tow, she planned to start her life over and live happily ever after.

Of course, GH viewers know that Nelle made haste and headed over to the apartment of Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard). There, she beat up Willow and knocked her out (giving her a nasty concussion in the process) and was on her way out when she was stopped by Michael and Chase. Everyone knows that a short time later she ended up in a jail cell across from Brad.
The amazing part of the story is that when it came time and Nelle was arraigned in court, the judge dropped all charges of assault and kidnapping against her! Exultant, this dark GH character then slapped Michael with a lawsuit seeking full custody of their child.
Fans may feel that there can’t be any possible way for the law to view Nelle as a fit mother. It ought to be about who can provide Wiley with the best, most stable life possible. Right? However, Nelle just may have some things going for her. Everyone knows that Nelle is extremely manipulative and is able to goad people into confrontations.

General Hospital Spoilers: Sasha Gilmore May Not Want The Pressure Of “Insta-Motherhood”
This ability may serve her well. That could be particularly true if she is able to push Willow into assaulting her. If she is able to create circumstances wherein Willow seems mentally or emotionally unstable then it would make little sense for Michael to marry her in an attempt to improve his own image of family stability.
Just a little push and Sasha may not want the pressure of “insta-motherhood” either. Michael would then be left alone and on (almost) equal footing when it comes to who appears more stable. Further, as Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) has pointed out more than once, the courts do tend to favor the birth mother.
It remains to be seen whether circumstances will harm Michael and tilt toward Nelle or not. One thing is sure however, the game for the moment appears to be Michael’s to lose. Viewers will likely agree though, that bad odds don’t phase Nelle one bit. Stay tuned to GH and keep checking General Hospital spoilers for all the latest news, updates and developments!
