General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig) will be forced into an impossible situation. The decision she makes will have consequences not just for herself, but for everyone connected to her. GH fans know Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) basically suggested they can do this the easy way or the hard way. He’d prefer to just pay Hayden for information on the portrait, but he’s willing to use harsher methods if necessary.
Valentin will indeed try one of those harsher methods in the week ahead – at least Hayden will assume that’s what he did. A man will grab Hayden from behind and cover her mouth down on the pier. General Hospital spoilers say he’ll try to drag Hayden off somewhere, but she’ll wrestle herself away from the baddie’s grip.
Once Hayden dashes off to meet with Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma), he’ll point out that this is dangerous business. This is exactly why Nikolas doesn’t want Laura Webber (Genie Francis), Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) and Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel) to know he’s alive yet. They could be in peril just like Hayden. She’ll eventually decide Violet Barnes (Jophielle Love) could be in grave danger as well.
Hayden will take Nik’s advice to go underground and avoid Valentin’s wrath. Leaving Violet isn’t what Hayden wants, but she’s no good to her daughter if she’s dead! It’d be better to leave now and have the hope of returning later. Hayden will realize this whole mess has turned into something truly lethal.
Of course, Hayden’s choice will affect Finn in a big way, but we can’t forget about Anna Devane (Finola Hughes). She expected to return home and pick up right where she left off with Finn. Instead, Anna came back to find his ex-fiancée sniffing around and the daughter Finn didn’t know about. Hayden’s decision to disappear will work out well for Anna in some ways, but it’ll also complicate things.
Finn will step up as a dad, but will Anna be willing to step up as a mom? She’ll essentially become a fill-in one if she stays by Finn’s side. There’s just no path around that since Finn will be the only remaining parent in Violet’s life. They’re a package deal now, so Anna will have to decide if she’s willing to sign for that package!
Anna clearly approves of Finn having a relationship with Violet and would never want to hinder that. At the same time, Hayden’s departure will be a game-changer. It’ll force Anna to think about the role of mother being thrust upon her. Anna will be serving as Violet’s mom in Hayden’s absence, so that’ll be a lot to take in.
General Hospital spoilers say Anna and Finn’s bond will be put to the test thanks to the kiddo. Violet’s going to turn their lives upside down by living with them full-time. Can Anna accept her role as substitute mom? Will her relationship with Finn survive the changes Violet brings? We’ll give you updates as other GH news comes in.
