General Hospital spoilers – What is next for Carly Corinthos in Port Charles?
What is next for Carly in Port Charles? Carly is a firecracker and there is never a dull moment when she is around. She has a reputation for butting into her loved one’s lives and she just wrapped up an emotional court battle in which her son fought for custody of his child.
Later, the baby momma, Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) kidnapped the child after losing in court. Carly went after her sworn enemy and the two fought. Nelle is now MIA and Carly has lied about what really went down between them, which will come back to haunt her no doubt.
She is also dealing with the fact that Sonny’s dad is on death’s door, and this will be another bend in the road for the family. Still, there seems to be nothing that incorrigible Carly can’t handle!
