Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Rebecca Budig is on her way back to General Hospital as Hayden Barnes this summer. Could Hayden (and her baby) spell trouble for her ex Finn (Michael Easton) and new love Anna (Finola Hughes)? Budig was written out of the soap back in September 2017.

Best known for her role as Greenlee on All My Children, Budig (who also appeared on Guiding Light) first joined GH in March 2015 as the schemer who turned out to be Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) half-sister. The actress will also appear on Bravo’s L.A.’s Finest this summer.

On Thursday (May 16), Carly receives important test results. Peter (Wes Ramsey) expresses his gratitude. Maxie (Kirsten Storms) checks on Lulu (Emme Rylan). Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) comes to Julian’s rescue. Molly (Haley Pullos) gets an idea.
