Yes, Patrika’s return is a done deal. Ann will definitely be at the wedding. Jen Lilley has already posted on twitter a “return” photo of herself holding DAYS scripts

Patrika was scheduled for a short return with the possibility of a longer stay. Her return will be seen in November. Nadia’s stay is longterm, but there will be an absence of Chloe because of Nadia’s maternity leave.

This lady should always win when her name is submitted for an award—she shows such class and is always so good to watch.
