General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Finn (Michael Easton) could be in for major heartbreak. There was recently some buzz about Michael Easton’s departure from the show, but now word has it he may be sticking around. Unfortunately, Easton could be losing his leading lady. It appears Rebecca Budig might be on her way out at the ABC soap.
Nothing has been confirmed, but “Fayden” fans are certainly glum over this possibility. Finn and Hayden are finally on the road to happiness right now. They’re expecting a baby and are prepared to start a family together. Finn will eventually get the drug test drama sorted out at General Hospital as well.
Alas, soapy sorrow usually hits when the future looks bright. General Hospital spoilers hint that Finn and Hayden could face some serious obstacles, especially if the latter is headed off canvas. There are several ways this could go.
Option one would be to recast the role, but General Hospital may not be interested. Hayden hasn’t been a key player lately and other new characters will soon enter the mix. Perhaps GH will choose to write Hayden out instead. In that case, we have to think about what would take Hayden out of the picture. She probably won’t skip town with the kid. Unless Finn gets back on drugs or completely enrages Hayden somehow, it’s tough to imagine her taking his child from him.
That leaves us with some equally sad outcomes for Hayden’s potential exit. Losing the baby is an obvious route. Maybe Hayden will grow more confident about motherhood. With Finn and Liz’s (Rebecca Herbst) support, Hayden may begin to envision herself as a great mom.
That would definitely lead to some crushing moments if Hayden suffers a miscarriage. She may be too depressed to remain in Port Charles with Finn. Hayden could pursue a new path and figure out what her life is going to look like elsewhere.
Of course, we don’t know when Budig might bolt the GH canvas. If she hangs around for a while, Hayden’s pregnancy could get pretty far along. General Hospital viewers may see Hayden die in childbirth and leave Finn to care for their infant alone.
Finn would have to balance extreme grief with looking after his new son or daughter. Although this storyline would be tragic, the silver lining would be some fantastic material for Michael Easton. We’ll give you updates if more news emerges about Rebecca Budig’s possible departure.
