Nelle Benson arrived in Port Charles on August 8, 2016 and was later revealed to be Josslyn Jacks' kidney donor. Although she was initially shown to be timid, nice, and selfless, she was eventually revealed to have an agenda.
She has a son named Jonah Corinthos with Michael Corinthos. He was switched at birth by his mother with the deceased adoptive son of Brad Cooper and Dr. Lucas Jones. He will therefore go by Wiley until he is given back to his father.
Nelle is enemies with Carly, Nina, Maxie, and everyone in Port Charles. She hates Carly more than anyone since she blames her for what her father did to her and how everyone turned their backs on her permanently.
She was friends with Ava Jerome till she started blackmailing her and forced her into becoming her co-conspirator. But in the end, Ava outsmarted Nelle and made sure the blanket she used to frame Carly would be found, which led to her final defeat and eventual incarceration. Since then, Ava and Nelle are now enemies.
The only real friends she has are Brad Cooper and Josslyn Jacks, though neither of them are aware of how devious and mentally unstable she is. However, they eventually learn of Nelle's true twisted self, ending their friendship with her permanently. In 2020, Brad especially felt betrayed when Nelle pinned the Wiley-Jonah baby swap on him when it was her idea in the first place.
On June 11, 2018, it was revealed that Nelle knows Harrison Chase back from Florida. While Chase was investigating the murder of Zachary Grant, Nelle seduces the officer and they became lovers for awhile until Nelle manipulates and reports their affair to his police force, destroying Chase's career. This indicates that she was indeed responsible for the death of her ex-fiancé Zachary Grant. On July 27, Nelle finally confesses to Michael that she killed Zachary, out of fear that he would leave her. She was finally arrested for her crimes on August 3, 2018 and was eventually taken to jail.
On June 13, 2019, Nelle met Kevin Collins' twin Ryan Chamberlain in Pentonville and they became instant friends.
As of January 14, 2020, it was revealed that Nelle was somehow released from Pentonville and that she married Hank Archer prior to his death in September 2019.
Nelle arrives in Port Charles looking for Carly Corinthos. She arrives at the Corinthos family home, Greystone Manor, during Bobbie Spencer's birthday party where she meets Carly's son, Michael Corinthos. Michael thinks she is applying for a babysitting position and asks her to wait until after the party to speak to Carly. After the party winds down, Michael introduces Nelle to his mother, Sonny Corinthos and Jasper Jacks, who were all attending the party. Nelle tells Carly that she saw her article in Crimson Magazine and believes she is her daughter, Josslyn's kidney donor. Nelle also got fired from her job at Crimson Magazine in 2017.
Carly had been conned for her money before, so Jax and Sonny were hesitant to believe Nelle's story, thinking she was just another person after the money. Nelle shows them her scar and tells them that her parents sold her kidney when she was a child. Nelle's story and the dates matched up with Josslyn's transplant, but they all want to be sure, so they go to General Hospital to run some tests. Nelle meets Josslyn and the two briefly bond. She is happy to see that the ordeal she went through ended up saving a little girl's life. Preliminary blood tests confirmed that Nelle was a match to Josslyn, but to be certain, Dr. Monica Quartermaine recommended a kidney biopsy. However, Sonny explained it wasn't necessary because he located the clinic where Nelle had her surgery, and the timeline worked out.
This information along with the matching blood tests led everyone to believe that Nelle was Josslyn's donor. Josslyn was upset when she realized that her mother had ignored her wishes about finding the kidney donor, but took an instant liking to Nelle and thanked her for the gift of life. Nelle promised she had no regrets, but she had to get back to Atlanta. Carly asked Nelle to stay because she wanted a chance to get to know her and she agreed. After Avery Jerome-Corinthos's nanny was caught stealing Carly's earrings, Carly fired the nanny and offered the job to Nelle. Having just lost her job in Atlanta, she agreed to watch Avery. Nelle lost this position when Carly's mother, Bobbie offered to be Avery's nanny. Bobbie also appeared suspicious of Nelle. Not wanting Nelle to leave, Carly offered her a job at the Metro Court Hotel as her personal assistant and Nelle accepted.
On November 23, Nelle saw Carly and Jax kissing. She went right over to Sonny's to tell him. On November 28, Nelle drugged Sonny, and he passed out. Nelle helped get him into bed, undressed him and, then apologized, before undressing herself. She climbed into bed beside him. On November 29, Sonny woke up and believed he and Nelle slept together. He begged Nelle not to tell Carly, but in November, it was revealed that Nelle had recorded Sonny mentioning that they slept together.
On March 3, it was revealed that Nelle is the daughter of Carly's late adoptive father, Frank Benson.
On March 21, Nina Reeves hired Nelle to be a nanny for her stepdaughter, Charlotte. She meets with Valentin, who promises her that if she does anything to harm Charlotte he will make sure no one will ever find her body. This spooks Nelle with good reason.
It was later revealed that her fiancé at the time, Zachary died of a suspicious canoeing incident that she witnessed. Nelle also spent time in a mental hospital.
On December 7, she revealed that she's pregnant with Michael's child.
Later on, Dr. Kim Nero confirms the pregnancy and that she is six weeks along. They run into Carly afterwards and Nelle gleefully congratulates the expectant grandma. Both Michael and Carly demand a paternity test and Nelle doesn't look happy and makes it clear she doesn't want money. Nelle eventually agrees to a noninvasive paternity test.
On December 22, (Christmas on the show), Nelle is seen talking to the baby after finding out Kelly's is closed.
Later on, Nelle showed up at the Corinthos house and fainted in Michael's arms. She comes to on the couch and explains that she was going to get food but nothing was open so she started driving home and came upon a down tree in the road and got out of the car. She states she didn't mean to end up at the Corinthos', but she started walking and felt faint. Sonny brings Nelle some broth to warm her and the baby up.
Michael asks if she's in any pain and Nelle asks if he's worried about the baby even thou he doesn't know if he's the dad yet and Michael says yes. Nelle tells him that they're warming up and they're gonna be just fine. Nelle ends up spending the night at the house.
It was later revealed that Nelle has fainted a lot and it was due to low blood pressure. She was told by a doctor to take it easy.
In 2018, an amniocentesis confirmed that Michael is indeed the father.
On January 22, the baby has appeared in a sonogram, which Nelle would later show Michael, after he missed the appointment.
On March 6, Nelle suffered from Braxton Hicks contractions, while trapped at Jerome Gallery with Carly during an earthquake. After learning that her apartment has been destroyed by the earthquake, Nelle was offered by Monica to stay at the Quartermaine mansion. During her baby shower on May 11, Nelle fell down a flight of stairs after getting into an argument with Carly over Michael, Morgan and the blanket. When she woke up in the hospital, she accused Carly of pushing her.
On June, Michael proposed to Nelle, to which she happily accepted. Unbeknownst to her, Michael was luring her into a trap to expose her crimes in framing his mother. On July 16, Michael and Nelle were supposed to be married in the Metro Court, but due to Nelle having pain with the baby, they said their vows and exchanged rings in Nelle's hospital room. However, Nelle wanted to kill Michael to take his money and teamed up with her ex-lover, Det. Harrison Chase, who was really on Michael's side and then rigged the car the two were set to ride in.
On July 27, in that car, Michael and Nelle furiously argued about their exposed plans against each other and how Nelle ruined Michael's family. Additionally, Nelle revealed she had killed her ex-fiancee, Zachary, but when Michael asked her if Carly really pushed her down those stairs, the car crashed. Nelle soon woke up and left Michael to die in the car which was going to explode. She went into labor in the woods and with the help of prison escapee Dr. Liesl Obrecht, she gave birth to her and Michael's son, but she later gave him to Brad after his adoptive son with Lucas died.
On August 3, after Nelle had escaped from General Hospital and stolen scrubs, leaving out a side entrance she made it to the docks where she was confronted by Josslyn and they got into a catfight after Nelle pushed Josslyn on the ground and throwing her phone for attempting to call the police.
Nelle was brought back into the police station and has been questioned by Jordan Ashford and Chase about her exposed crimes. Delusional still she believed she had the upper hand despite the evidence piling up against her. On August 7, Carly visited her to gloat on her victory against her and making sure she knows that no one will ever love her again and how she and Sonny intend to make sure she suffers for making her think her son was alive. After she left, when Nelle was being removed from the interrogation room, she panicked when she saw that the blanket she used in her plot to frame Carly was found.
Her confidence was finally destroyed and she went barking mad as she began cursing everyone around her knowing fully well she would be convicted for her crimes, even though Michael promised her that he would make sure she'd get a shred of leniency in the memory of their child, in spite of the fact he had doubts as to how much he can do given the severity of her crimes.
On August 29, Dr. Kim revealed that Nelle contacted her, she wanted her to testify that the hormones made her commit the crimes. Michael warns her not to be taken in by Nelle, but in the future, he needs no updates about the woman.
On October 12, Nelle is seen again at the courthouse for her trial. Nelle also sees her son for the first time since she gave him to Brad.
She plead no contest and was given the maximum sentence. She also saw her son again and basically threatened Brad with the fact the secret could come out at anytime.
On November 8, Nelle returned and is seen at Ferncliff pretending to be crazy till she was exposed by Jason, Sam, and Curtis. She was sent back to Pentonville.
On December 26, Obrecht visited Nelle in prison and learned that she switched her son with Michael with Brad and Lucas' dead son Wiley.
On June 13, 2019, Nelle met Ryan Chamberlain who asked if he knew her from somewhere. They became instant friends and discussed they had quite a bit in common, including the fact that both of them had a kidney stolen.
On June 14, Brad visited Nelle in prison and they talked about "Wiley" plus Brad shared all his fears about possibly losing him due to the original Wiley's birth father still having parental rights to the child although nobody knows about Brad and Nelle switching babies. Nelle eventually gained Lorraine "Harmony" Miller as a cell mate.
On July 26, Lorraine talked to Nelle about her daughter Kali Miller on how she was pregnant with her son with Shiloh, the leader of a cult called Dawn Of Day. She explained that Shiloh was a sexual predator and that's why Kali got away from him and the cult and she didn't tell him about the baby. Nelle was shocked when she realized that the original Wiley was the baby she was talking about and she remembered how she switched him with Jonah.
On July 29, Michael came to visit Nelle after she asked him to but he was only there to talk about Jonah. She was going to confess the truth but changed her mind when she saw a picture of Michael's girlfriend Sasha Gilmore and she claimed she had a dream about Jonah and they were a "happy family." Michael said goodbye to Nelle and he assured her he was done with her and never wanted to see her again. After he left, Nelle said she was not done with Michael.
Lorraine asked Nelle how it went and Nelle said that he didn't deserve to know the truth since it was just as much his fault as it was Carly's since she "poisoned" Michael against her.
On August 22, Nelle overheard a new inmate named Hank "Shiloh" Archer having a conversation with Peter August. When Pentonville went on lockdown mode, Nelle and Shiloh were handcuffed to the tables and they introduced themselves to one another. Nelle knew that Shiloh was trying to steal Willow's baby but Shiloh insisted that it wasn't stealing if it's yours. Hank mentioned to Nelle that when Willow gave Wiley up for adoption that it was illegal. Nelle wondered how Shiloh would beat the charges he's facing and Shiloh told her he has faith in human nature and it hasn't let him down yet. Nelle was surprised to learn that Shiloh obtained ELQ shares from a kid named Oscar Nero and she said that the Quartermaines owe her too.
On September 6, Nelle offered to help Shiloh obtain his ELQ shares and to help reunite him with Wiley, despite the fact that the real Wiley was dead.
On September 30, a man named Martin Gray came to visit Nelle in prison as her lawyer and they discussed her case. Martin admitted it didn't look good for her and when Nelle insisted that she changed her ways and felt remorse for her crimes he agreed to represent her at her upcoming parole hearing.
On October 16, Nelle's parole hearing took place and Martin did what he could to argue her case and Nelle claimed to own up to what she did but for the time being she was denied parole. Martin explained that he didn't expect her to get parole on her first try.
On November 7, it was revealed that Nelle had a husband who recently died and Martin questioned Nelle about why she didn't tell him about her husband. Nelle said that she didn't think that his background would help her case and Martin was thinking about not representing her anymore. When Nelle revealed that she was expecting a payday when she gets out and promised Martin a large sum of money, Martin agreed to help her get out of prison and said his friends call him Marty.
On December 5, Nelle became Sam's cellmate and they taunted each other; Sam throwing the fact that Michael moved on in her face and Nelle taunting Sam about Jason. Eventually, Chase showed up and told Sam that Lucas and Brad were in a car accident and Nelle was concerned about Wiley but Chase revealed that Wiley was not in the car. Chase told Sam that Brad's injuries were minor but Lucas' were more serious.
On December 11, Martin came to visit Nelle who demanded that he should get her released that very night but Martin said that the chances for early parole are slim to none and the chances for an early release are non-existant. Eventually, Martin inadvertently gave Nelle the idea of being in a dangerous situation so she left the conjugal visiting room and went to see Ryan, who was being treated for an infection. Nelle asked for Ryan's help in getting out of prison and offered to be his link to Ava and Port Charles in return and promised him pictures of Ava. Ryan agreed to help her and he stabbed her with a scalpel as part of their plan. Chase and another cop came in and found Ryan standing over her with the scalpel and claimed that it's not what it looks like. Ryan was restrained as Nelle was taken to the hospital and she learned that Ryan just missed her kidney. Eventually, Nelle called Martin and told her she was at GH. Martin eventually visited her and was appalled that she got herself stabbed to get out of Pentonville, but nevertheless he tried to claim that Nelle was in danger at Pentonville. Nelle was set to be wheeled back to prison and while she waited she saw her son being held by Willow Tait, who thinks she is "Wiley's" mother due to being the original Wiley's birth mother. Nelle manipulated Willow into nearly letting her hold "Wiley" but Michael came and stopped her before she could.
On December 27, Nelle went back to prison and she was antagonizing Sam who was trying to ignore her but eventually Sam snapped and threatened to shut her up if she didn't shut up. Nelle claimed that Sam threatened her and the guard took Sam out, but eventually the guard came back and said that Sam was released due to getting parole which surprised Nelle. She eventually pulled out a billboard of her plans for 2020 when she believed she would be getting released.
On January 14, 2020, it was revealed that Nelle was somehow released from Pentonville and that her mystery husband was Shiloh all along, plus she had put together his memorial and invited Sam, Willow, Harmony, and even Michael. Nelle revealed to everyone that she was Shiloh's widow and that they are all her guests. Michael asked how Nelle got out of jail and Nelle revealed that after the Ryan Chamberlain incident, they gave her early parole. Later on, Chase came and confirmed that Nelle was telling the truth.
After Shiloh's memorial, Nelle went to the Quartermaine mansion where they were having a board meeting with the issue on Oscar's ELQ shares. Martin Gray had accompanied Nelle and they revealed that despite the conflicting wills to see which bequest is valid, the judge signed off on a temporary injunction to give Nelle rights on what to do with the shares Oscar left to Shiloh. The Quartermaines promised to make Nelle's life miserable and Brook Lynn Quartermaine told her off hard core. Eventually, Nelle called for Martin to escort her out.
Nelle later went to see Brad who was surprised she was released and she told Brad she was going to stay with him just until she manages to get her hands on the shares so she can find her own place. The next day, Brad gave Nelle 60 bucks to enjoy a day out in town and when Willow showed up, Nelle and Willow both demanded to know what the other person was doing there. Nelle claimed that Brad insisted on her staying with him and when Brad told Nelle to go take her shower, Willow lashed out at him for taking Nelle in, especially since Nelle was a dangerous psychopath. Brad tried to defend himself and when Nelle came back out, Brad went to go get Wiley ready for daycare. Eventually, Nelle told Willow that Brad didn't need her anymore as Wiley's nanny and said that if she looks after Wiley then it would be bad for her health. Willow knew however that Nelle indirectly threatened her. After Nelle told Willow to leave, she yelled Brad's name before asking him why he hired Willow as Wiley's nanny. Brad explained that he knew she didn't want Michael in close proximity and said that it was a lesser of two evils. Nelle told Brad to get rid of Willow or she would. Brad brought Wiley out and Nelle wanted to hold him. Although Brad was reluctant, he eventually agreed and Nelle got to hold him before Michael and Chase showed up. After Michael took Wiley out of Nelle's arms, he and Chase threatened to call social services by saying a convicted felon moved into a place where a child lives at but they offered her an alternative; Nelle can move into a place where it more than meets her standards. Nelle eventually agreed since Michael asked her to move into the Quartermaines, however she didn't know that Michael was playing her by keeping his enemy close so that when he drops the hammer, she'll never see it coming.
Nelle ran into Willow and met Sasha at the Metro Court and announced that Michael asked her to move in, with Carly saying that Nelle was lying again after hearing the news. Eventually, after Sasha and Willow sat down at a table, Carly and Nelle were sparring and calling each other names and Nelle taunted Carly about how Michael did not hesitate to move her into the Quartermaines. When Nelle brought up Jonah, Carly threatened her by saying to see what happens if she mentioned his name one more time. Eventually, Carly told her to go ahead and live with the Quartermaines since they will treat Nelle as bad as she is since she had tried to kill Michael before. Eventually, Willow was leaving and Nelle tried to taunt her about playing mommy to Wiley after all. Willow said that while she was heartbroken for Michael and felt sorry for him, she was grateful that Nelle was not a mother.
On February 3, Nelle arrived at the Quartermaine mansion and was expecting to get settled in but Brook Lynn tried several times to throw her out. Later, Nelle tried to appeal to Brook Lynn whp said they will never be friends. Nelle called Michael and put Brook Lynn on the phone with him and Michael told Brook Lynn to give Nelle a room and he'd explain later. Brook Lynn decided to put Nelle into a room which was next to Tracy Quartermaine.
The next morning, Tracy and Ned found Nelle helping herself to breakfast and some orange juice. They both tried to throw her out but Michael and Sasha arrived before he revealed that Monica allowed her to stay. Tracy and Ned were appalled since they didn't get a head's up. Later on, Michael revealed that he was going to put Nelle in the boathouse which initially upset her but she managed to bounce back. Later on, Martin showed up before Nelle was given another offer to go away. Nelle thought it was better than the last offer but said it wasn't enough before tearing it up. Eventually, Nelle and Martin scored some privacy before she revealed to him that she planned to drive the Quartermaines so crazy that they would pay her anything to go away and when she gets a lot of money she'll take off, parole or no parole. Martin was intrigued when Nelle mentioned "we" instead of "I" but it's unknown if Nelle revealed the truth about "Wiley" to him or not.
On February 13, Nelle learned that Brad and Lucas were planning to move to Portland, Oregon and start a new life with "Wiley" which did not make her happy. She decided to get the ball rolling on accomplishing her plans and she eventually left Valentin a voicemail, saying she was ready to sell her shares. Eventually she sold her shares to Valentin who gave her a lot of money and two passports with fake names, one being Barbara Langdon and the other one said William Langdon, which was for Wiley.
On February 18, Nelle showed up at Sonny and Carly's house where Brad and Lucas' going away party was happening. Brad talked to Nelle and tried to win her over on his move to Oregon and eventually told her that "Wiley" was at Chase and Willow's apartment. Eventually Nelle left but snuck around to the outdoor patio just in time for Lucas to finally reveal that Wiley was Michael's son after regaining the memory of the crash.
Realizing it was over, Nelle made her way to Willow and Chase's apartment and forced her way in since she was going to kidnap Wiley and run but Willow tried to stop her. Eventually after a physical fight against each other, Nelle knocked Willow out and grabbed Wiley. Before she could leave, Michael and Chase showed up and revealed that Brad told them everything and that it was over before demanding the baby. Nelle spun a tale and tried to claim that Brad stole their baby while she was unconscious but neither one of them believed her, but Michael kept her talking until Chase found Willow unconscious on the floor. Nelle gave Wiley to Michael and was arrested as Chase took Willow to the hospital.
As Nelle was taken down to her cell, she saw Brad, who was also arrested and in his cell, and accused him of stealing her baby. Brad was shocked and insisted that it was Nelle's idea, not his but she stuck to her story and got the guard to move Brad to another cell.
On February 25, Carly visited Nelle and threatened her if she somehow manages to walk free from the new charges against her. Later on, Chase confronted Nelle and revealed that he found evidence to contradict her version of the baby swap story.
On March 4, Nelle was at the courthouse with her attorney, Zahra Amir and after she was arraigned the charges against her were dropped due to lack of evidence. It was revealed that Nelle had paid Valentin to make sure the evidence would get "lost." Afterwards she later learned fron Zahra that the charges could be refiled at anytime so she shouldn't leave town and then she decided to sue Michael for full custody of Wiley. Eventually, Michael, along with Willow and Carly intimidated Nelle and Carly declared war. Later on, Obrecht showed up at the courthouse and made it clear where they stood, if Nelle gave Obrecht up
On March 12, Nelle was at Charlie's Pub and she had called Zahra to figure out what happened at Brad's arraignment and learned that Brad pled guilty to the baby switch. Eventually Julian chastised Nelle and told her that by the time Wiley was old enough that he would not know who she was. Nelle carried on and decided to change his name to William which infuriated Willow. She told Nelle that "Wiley" is the name he knows and that she cannot suddenly change that but Nelle hit Willow where it hurt by saying that her son is dead and to stay away from Wiley. Willow was infuriated and threw a drink on her. Willow claimed that her hand slipped and Julian backdd her up before Nelle said she was not paying a dime for her meal. Eventually, Nelle saw Sasha and they eventually exchanged words with each other before Sasha and Willow went back to their table.
On March 24, Nelle went to Nina's office at Crimson and attempted to apply for a job as an assistant. Nina initially refused and wanted her to leave, but Nelle played on her emotions by bringing up the "fact" that they both know what it's like to have a child out there who is alive and is taken from them. Nelle initially went to leave, but Nina decided to hire her, much to Carly's chagrin. However, it was actually revealed that Nina was going to keep Nelle close so that when the day comes in open court, she will testify against Nelle.
Later on, Nelle went to the hospital after learning that Wiley had been admitted and demanded to know where he was and asked what Michael did to him. Michael insisted he didn't do anything and told her about Wiley's genetic heart condition and that he has to have an elective surgery to repair the hole in his heart so that it'd give him a normal, happy life. Nelle claimed that she wanted to explore non-invasive options and refused to sign the consent form, much to Michael's anger. Sasha and Michael both called Nelle out on endangering Wiley's health before Monica went to get the information for Nelle to get other opinions even though they'd agree with Monica. Eventually, Michael got a moment alone with Nelle and raged at her for trying to kill him, for switching babies with Brad and making him think Wiley was dead just to stick it to him before saying that she will not have a say when he gets full custody. Nelle claimed that her refusing to consent to Wiley's surgery had nothing to do with him before going to check on Wiley. Eventually, Willow and Chase showed up and Willow and Sasha told Michael to win full custody by any means necessary.
