1000% agree with this assessment. And I'll add that in addition to her hypocrisy--she's well aware of it, but doesn't give any shits because whatever is happening, she sees her skanky ass as the victim, and so her past and all her heinous acts should be ignored or hand waved away.
I only watched those flashbacks because I was on the barge when Nelle showed up.
My eyes just could not ROLL HARD enough when the SheBeast was telling Nelle how she would "teach" her how to be an assistant, and how she ran the hotel and it was easy-peasy. Gurrrl, you married Jax to get that hotel; you didn't EARN it. And all you do is flounce around as the Mob Moll you are, and barging into rooms of people who have PAID for the rooms and their privacy. I've yet to see you do any fucking work that the owner of a supposed high end hotel does.
And whoever wrote that revisionist history that SheBeast came to town to get Bobbie's love can just STFU and DIAFF. That beast came into town, intent on destroying Bobbie's "affluent" life, because, oh, the HORROR! Bobbie had given her up for adoption.
Eden McCoy is a horrible, horrible, horrible actress. With that kewpie pouty mouth. Show should have just shown flashbacks to the original Sarah Brown as she rolled into Port Charles. Hey, it's been more than 2 decades, so having Shebeast with a different face, and Sarah being in her early 20s, it would have been okay. Oh, wait. They'd have to pay Sarah.
RAGE!BLACKOUT! at the retcon of Jax buying Joss' kidney. And like it doesn't happen in real life! Law & Order: Sonata for an Organ" did it MUCH better, and the father actually was willing to kill to get his daughter a kidney; whereas Jax didn't hire someone to kill someone for a kidney. Joss really is her mother's spawn.
Oh SHUT UP, Willow! I'm so sick of her and this quad acting as if Nelle tried to murder her own child. Even if she's using him as a ticket to the good life, she hasn't tried to smother him in his sleep, or put him near a pool, where he could drown, or [insert whatever EVUHL DEED here]. She's acting as if Wiley is her child that Nelle has kidnapped and claimed as her own.
But I did love Nelle calling SheBeast out on her hypocrisy, her own past, and how she destroyed Tony and AJ and used the SLS to have Mooby and Jaysus at her beck and call for life. What would have made it perfect was if she hadn't said that that was what she wanted. But we can't have nice things. IF Sarah were still playing the Beast, she would have been able to show some...nuance, as if Nelle hit her; but with Laura? All I ever get is SMUG ARROGANCE.
And shut up, Chase. You didn't do your fucking job when Nelle wanted to press charges for Bobbie, Monica, Shebeast all being complicit in forging her signature and the Beast locking her up on the roof. He's got some nerve telling Jordan she can't question TJ because of their relationship, but it's okay for him to involve his ass in all purported cases where Nelle is involved? Like he doesn't have history with her? PUHLEAZE. But that's par for the course with this show for the past 15 years or so.
