General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that heartbreak is coming up for Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig). She had her reasons for keeping Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) out of the loop on his daughter, but she’s glad everything’s out in the open now. It clearly warms Hayden’s heart to see Finn connecting with Violet Barnes (Jophielle Love), who was thrilled to find out he was her daddy.
Hayden will soon cling to the few memories they’ve made as a family. Budig’s exit is on the way, and it involves fleeing Port Charles to escape Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) wrath. After almost getting abducted, Hayden will take Nikolas Cassadine’s (Marcus Coloma) advice and skip town before Valentin makes a deadly move. She’ll choose to leave Violet with Finn, but that’s not a choice that’ll come without heartache.
How will Hayden handle this terrible situation? Will she deceive Finn once again and leave him wondering what happened? GH fans know deception is kind of Hayden’s thing, but it’d be refreshing if she’d try honesty here. Hayden needs to help Finn understand that she’s doing this for her own safety and perhaps even Violet’s. She should tell Finn she’s in trouble and urge him to step up in her absence.
Of course, there’s also a chance Hayden will just disappear. She’ll surely realize Finn will try to talk her out of this and try to help somehow. Hayden may worry that the pain and fear in Finn’s eyes will convince her to stay. As much as Hayden wants that, she’ll know that she can’t.
Even so, we’re rooting for Hayden to tell Finn the truth and perhaps give Violet an explanation as well. General Hospital spoilers state that Hayden will say goodbye to Violet, but will Violet know it’s a goodbye? Maybe Hayden will inform Violet that she has to go away for a while. She may remind Violet of how much she loves her and promise to return whenever she can.
Hayden might warn that it could be a while, but she’ll definitely want Violet to know she’s in good hands with Daddy. The kid’s pretty joyful and resilient, so Violet should be scampering off to play before long. For Hayden though, this will be one of the hardest things she’s ever had to do. Hayden will have no way of knowing when she’ll be able to return to the daughter she adores.
This will mean giving up on her “Fayden” family dreams, too. Hayden undoubtedly hoped for a romantic reunion with Finn if she stuck around long enough. Now that Hayden’s leaving, she’ll realize Finn will move forward with Anna Devane (Finola Hughes). That’ll add heartache on top of heartache!
General Hospital spoilers say Finn will have to tackle Daddy duty without Hayden, so there could be some parenting hurdles along the way. We’ll give you updates as other GH news comes in.
