Rebecca Budig Exits General Hospital! But Since Hayden Holds A Big Secret Will She Return?

This week on General Hospital, viewers saw that conniving Hayden (Rebecca Budig) took a bullet to the head, thanks to Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher)!

With the knowledge of Jake’s (Billy Miller) true identity to be Jason Morgan and what that could mean for him and his wife Sam (Kelly Monaco), that bullet put Hayden into a coma after Patrick  (Jason Thompson) tried his best to save her during delicate brain surgery!  And that, put’s an end to the short term run of Rebecca Budig on General Hospital!

But since Hayden holds a vital secret and if she were to wake-up she could completely wreck Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Nikolas’ plans, (since they are in collusion now keeping Sam and Jake from knowing who he truly is) we wouldn’t be surprised if she wakes up just when the time is right!

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Budig reveals if she would also be very interested in a return to Port Charles.   Rebecca answered, “Yeah, totally! I feel like there is more to learn about Hayden and I would love to figure out who she is, where’s she’s coming from, what her whole back-story is.”

So, what do you think about the departure of Rebecca Budig for now? Would you like Hayden to wake up and become a more permanent fixture on the GH canvas?  What do you think about Nikolas ordering the hit on Hayden to keep his lover and blackmailer silenced? Comment below!

Hayden needs to return permanently. I just love Rebecca Budig and I loved her on AMC as Greenlee.

mary

I agree. Rebecca is fabulous. Frank should give her a long term contact,

CeeCee
CeeCee

Ah, AMC….my heart hurts, I miss that soap so much!!!!
Greenlee/Rebecca first appeared as the real quintessential bad girl, just like Hayden. Greenlee was finally reformed due to the love of her life Leo, who later died.
I truly hope Hayden comes back to GH for redemption. Let’s give her Patrick…well, he did save her life. They fall in love while Sam and Jake find each other.
Hayden is in a coma….Rebecca will leave temporarily. When Hayden wakes up, Rebecca will return, for sure. She is too much of an asset to lose….love her.

Cory

Totally agree!!! Yes!!!! Bring her back!! Give her a real story on her own! Tell her backstory and let her become a part of PC!! Please!! Please!!

I would love to see her back again & bc more involved with people like Carly. Also hope Jason finds out who he is before May ends. Needs to be with Sam & Danny & Liz & Nick need to be exposed!

Hayden’s a little spitfire. I’m hoping her coma will bring some of her relatives from Beecher’s Corners out of the woodwork, and turn Elizabeth & Nik’s lives upside down. It would be hilarious, after all of her subterfuge, for Liz to ruin yet another chance w/Jason because of all her lies & plotting w/Nik. She’ll be skulking around with a worried look on her face for as long as Hayden’s in that coma instead of enjoying her time w/Jason. Also, it’s never a bad thing to watch Carly be proven wrong. If Hayden reveals that Jake is Jason, Carly will probably become her BFF because she’ll get her best friend back. Frankly, I think a Hayden-Carly duo would be hilarious, especially opposite Ric & Nina Lansing.

David
David

That really was a short term stay, hopefully she will be back and they can delve more into her as a person and her backstory. I just wish they would hurry up with the reveal that Jake is Jason. This has carried on far too long getting close to a year since Billy Miller joined the show, it is long past time for it to come out that he is Jason

Erick
Erick

Not quite… He debuted on October 1st… but he was in bandages for what, a month? So it’s more like November.

David
David

That is still over 6 months closer to 7 since when he had the bandages the viewers already knew he was Jason. It still has dragged on for far too long and its time for the reveal to come out.

Torqumada

I thought she fit in pretty seamlessly.

I suspect the coma clears up during fall sweeps.

Lizzy Diaz
Lizzy Diaz

Please consider bringing her back….R.B. is an amazing actress,I think she proved that coming to GH….I loved her when she was on AMC also….please find a way to bring her back and keep her!

Diane
Diane

I would like to see Hayden stay long term. She seemed to fit in well with the cast and storyline. And she’s a great actress. Would bring some of AMC fans to GH.

Shari
Shari

Well he lost a piece of bootie but,the takeover of ELQ is more important to Nik! That’s the only reason why he’s keeping the secret!

CB
CB

Wait! Hold up! Did I miss something???? Nikolas ordered the hit? I know I missed a couple of days due to illness, but I watched & THOUGHT I caught up! Guess not. Thought Shawn actually shot Hayden. Guess he missed, huh? Then, they’ll be able to confirm Shawn’s innocent. I know Sean is leaving the show, but isn’t his character, Shawn, being written off & going to prison for Hayden’s attempted murder??

shrona
shrona

It was revealed at the very end of the second live show, just before the Spencer Cassadine Dance Party. I too am sad to see Rebecca go. I don’t suppose there’s any way we can keep her and lose nuKiki, is there? 😉

SZima
SZima

Shawn DID shoot Haayden. Nicholas’ hit man told Nic that someone got there before him.
Jordan is the one who caused Shawn to miss his target and hit Hayden rather than Jakson.

Not sure why the author didn’t mention these vital facts!

BreckRoy
BreckRoy

Not quite. The hitman specifically said that he did the job. But Shawn Butler was the perfect patsy to take the fall, didn’t he? Or am i missing something.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hmmmm, I don’t know. Nik’s hitman specifically said that Shawn thought he missed Jake and accidentally hit Hayden because of Jordan. It went so in favor of Nik’s minion. Stroke of luck? Shawn probably did fire, but the bullet went wild/astray and is most likely embedded somewhere. Sounds confusing, but it seems pretty clear. Then again, the writers will fix it any way they want it fixed. Things could change at their whim….
I did mention earlier that there should be an investigation…too easy? Yeah, the so-apt police department will figure out the trajectory of the bullet in maybe…… uhmm, two years?

CeeCee
CeeCee

No, SZima. Nik’s evil-doer had no idea Shawn would be there. That’s what he was referring to. The hitman said he shot Hayden. Shawn THINKS he shot her.
As I said, an investigation will prove all this…if there is one……if I were there? Every piece of the puzzle would be in its place. I think I’m in the wrong profession……LOL and triple LOL.

samantha Fournier
samantha Fournier

I want her to tell all and bust Elizabeth out ……

CeeCee
CeeCee

I know, Samantha. What really disturbs me is that Jake is missing so much precious time with his son. A shame, really. These are a boy’s formative years, and Danny deserves to know his father. Sooo, C’mon, writers.

By the way, Samantha? I’m sure you are aware that Fournier literally means ‘oven keeper’, or ‘tender’. Later, it was Baker or Boulanger. Don’t mind me…..name-derivation fascinates me, especially Italian, French, English and Castilian Spanish.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@ Timmm.
Hi,
Hmmmm….pick whom? Impossible for me. I love them both. So, if they should come back, I hope it would not come to that, Timmm. No cat fights over Nik…not worth it. The Prince has put a few dents in his crown. Please do not let there be a Britt versus Hayden scene of any kind…LOL.

Well truth be told, I am finding that like Britt Westbourne, I hated her at first and am now warming to her….but there are many other characters who need some focus and airtime.

Ces

Yeah, I kinda wish Britt would have visited with Nicholas. It was fun to see her back and I never thought I’d say that!

I love little (Peanut) her nick name that Cameron (“Ryan”) gave her on All My Children, but yeah, I think Rebecca is a great actress and could be an asset to General Hospital. She plays a bad girl well, but she also plays a good girl well too.

nicole

I would absolutely love love love for Rebecca budig to stay!! I really hope she returns love Hayden’s character !!

Jenny Brooks

I’d like to see her wake up and totally blow Liz and Nikolas out of the water! In just a short amount of time GH made Hayden a more compelling character than they have yet with Nina.

Timmm

Amen Jenny!

Yes I would! Was this just choice to leave. She never got a back story

Eileen Hargis

I get so really tired of Elizabeths always lying. Why cant she be straight up for once and then she might have a chance in a relationship. But, oh no, knowing hes Jason, married to Sam and a father to a baby he doesnt know, she takes him to bed. Of course, she will lose again!

Alice Robinson

Wake up, Hayden!!!! Wake UP!!! Then go kick Nikolas’ butt all over that island.

Ces

i like that gh is cleaning house. Can we unload kiki next? Her character is such a wast of time. Also, i love roger howarth and michelle stafford as actors but what is their purpose on gh? The cast needs to shrink.

shrona
shrona

Ces, you’re reading my mind. I love Roger and Michelle too but they are not getting the storyline their talents deserve. And maybe it’s because I’m such a huge Kristen Alderson fan, but I can’t stand nuKiki.

SZima

Wow, do I ever agree about Kiki! Right now the most annoying and unnecessary character on the show!
I also agree about RH and MS…love them but they’re totally NOT needed.

Janice

Sad that it was only a short term gig.
I thought they put her on contract.

I’m hoping she has a short term project she was previously committed to ( like a Lifetime movie) and will return to GH after to wreak more havoc!

Excellent actress. Terrible storyline. I feel bad for her, but I’m glad she is gone.

Carolyn

I hope Rebecca Budig comes back! She was one of the biggest shining talents during the #GHLive shows and adds intrigue and humor, coupled with drama and great timing to Hayden.

Rose M
Rose M

She can come back but ONLY if she lets loose with that secret before she leaves. I’m way tired of waiting for this thing to come out! Good News/Bad News: Good – Jason Morgan Recast. Bad – He doesn’t find out for 2 years who he really is. RESULT – Nobody tuned in to see it happen.

BreckRoy
BreckRoy

Lol, Billy Miller has been on th show about six months. Soaps used to keep secrets like paternities and infidelities for years.

kelly

I would definitely welcome Rebecca Budig back to GH. Any character that doesn’t like Elizabeth and puts her in her place,is a character I want in Port Charles. Plus Hayden was actually an interesting new character, unlike say Kiki.

Carol
Carol

I would like to see her back but not to upset the apple cart.

Brenda Kay
Brenda Kay

YES BRING REBECCA BUDIG BACK!!!!! Let her tell the truth and keep her on GH! She is a brilliant actress and would bring so much to the show. Please please keep her on GH!!!!! I will be so disappointed if this is it for her. GH writers need to get a grip on their stories and stop bouncing all over the place with loose ends everywhere. Can we please tell Jake the truth once and for all and can Elizabeth just get her own man for a change. Frustrated!!

Terri Capraro
Terri Capraro

YES, I want her to stay on GH. I loved her as Greenlee and I feel she could be an awesome character as Hayden. Give her a chance. She wasn’t on long enough to show what she can do. Really disappointed that she is leaving so soon.

Sarah

I have enjoyed seeing Rebecca Budig back on screen. I don’t totally like her character, but I will miss seeing her on GH.

su0000
su0000

well,,
Hayden (Rebecca Budig) is recurring..
And-
FV and RC know the great acting talents of Rebecca, they will not let her go..
I will be looking forward to her return, she is a spit fire, very spicey, an awesome type of a soap character..

Timmm
Timmm

Maybe putting her in a coma was a way for Frank to measure her popularity and decide if they should put her on contract?

Hi Timmm..
that could be..
I believe Rebeca will have a great future on GH..
She fits in very will..
GH and Rebeca= great match ..

aria

I love Hayden, i hope Rebecca decides to come back, and i’m glad the character wasn’t killed off, i knew she only came in short term but i hope GH’s RC/FV ask her to come on board and stay longer, she was so good, so keeping my fingers cross. As for Nikolas, oh boy, i’m not sure how to feel about this, I think if prince nik is taking a shot at the dark side then he for sure needs his mom Laura, so i’m so glad Genie Francis is coming back, hope her return is for more then just Luke goodbye..

Christine
Christine

I hope the writers keep Rebecca on the show. I would love to see her and Carly go after Elizabeth and Nicholas for keeping Jason from her (Carly)….. GH need another spicy woman with a backbone like Carly,
Let her stay around and cause trouble for Nicholas and Elizabeth. Find a man for her, better yet put her with Rick Lansing to make Elizabeth sooooo unhappy!!!!!!

Mary SF
Mary SF

Not surprised, they wrote her character into a corner and the character had no real ties to Port Charles. It’s unfortunate that GH hires all these big names from daytime and prime soaps, only to use them for short stints at a time. For me one of the joys of daytime is having the chance to get to know a character, to see them evolve over time, but when they come in and out of the canvas so fast, I can’t really empathized or care about them. Hayden taking a bullet meant nothing to me, because she meant nothing to me. Her existence was another example where instead of the plot revealing something about the character, the character was only there to further the plot.

Jeremy
Jeremy

Yes, Mary SF, I hear you, and agree. As much as DAYS is not well balanced storyline wise, the fact that their contract players are all on mostly on a regular basis, I care so much more for the characters on DAYS compared to GH. GH has so many recurring characters, like that of Rosalie (who I love), but like you say, it’s hard to empathize and care about the recurring characters on GH, the cast is so large, and now that Monica is no where to be seen, or Kevin, or Brad/Felix/Lucas, I don’t care as much about them, and it’s a crying shame. I like Hayden, and hope she returns, and hopefully as the cast is now trimming down, hopefully the EP will look into reducing the short stints.

lisa

Yes that would be very interested. And ut needs to be real soon.

I would really like her to stay. Loved her in all my children awesome actress

Jayson

Are TPTB out of their minds???? Rebecca Budig has brought sexiness, sassiness, and humor to this role like only she could. I freaking adore Hayden, and i’m crushed that she’s not on contract. Who do I contact to bring her back to the show? Make her a long-loss Quartermaine. Now that Tony is leaving, Jane Elliot needs a storyline. Make Hayden her daughter, or Carly’s adoptive father’s daughter. Make her pregnant with Nicholas’s child. For heavens sake, BRING HER BACK!

Tivette
Tivette

I would LOVE for Rebecca Buddig to wake up at the right time to spill the beans AND to find out she is preggers with Prince Nik’ s baby! She has the strength to manage Nik and his crazy grandmother. What great potential stories could be had with Rebecca as a matriarch in the making! Oh my, if only…

Karen

AMEN! LOVE THAT IDEA! A QUARTERMAINE SHE MUST BE! AND PREGNANT WITH NIC’S CHILD! I LIKE BOTH IDEAS!
REBECCA HAS TO STAY

Hayden as a Q, excellent Jayson.

I would love to see Hayden return. She was a good character and she brought a good energy to the show.

Debra

I hope she wakes up and explores the character . Rebecca Is an amazing actress. Look what she did with Greenlee on AMC. I think that was a character short term until she created an amazing love to hate. I think Hayden is what PC needs.

Patrick
Patrick

I was hoping she would have short-term amnesia… at least with the JakeDoe reveal

I haven’t been this gobsmacked with such a natural… in a very long time…

I was hoping Britt was returning to help stir up the pot… w/Nikolas
and MS’ Nina sure could use a friend… COUSIN to carry story with

Britta intertwined with Nikolas and Hayden
Britta mixing with cousin Nina, Franco, Ric, Dr. O., Nathan, Brad, Liz, Spence… she’s endless in her presence with all of GH

ie: Nikolas… where does he go from here? with Britta and Hayden gone
and… for him to see Liz wanting “desperately” to move on with “Jake” certainly is a slap in the face / realization…. that Liz is NOT interested in Nikolas

hopefully, the writers will continue to gung ho… NIkolas , no holds barred…. surge for power… and all the excitement he is generating

Rebecca Buddig, : surprise, surprise

mama22

There is a lot of potential for this character. She brings energy and excitement to the canvas. Bring her back.

Shay

I’ll be glad to see Hayden gone….I couldn’t warm up to this character, whatsoever. I only wish that that more unnecessary roles were dispensed with as quickly….like Nina, Sappy, Felix, Jordan, Kiki and Val-Chops. There’s something to be said for such expediency when there is no valid long-term reason for a character, and having one hang around simply for the sake of being there is not only foolish, but a waste of time and space better utilized by old favorites. And speaking of, will someone please get Britt back on a more regular basis? I know KT left to seek other work, but her brief return was a true breath of fresh air, and she is badly needed is on the GH canvas. No other female has captured the spark, humor and villainy of that sexy minx, Dr. Westbourne!!!!

Ginger

I’m very disappointed. I really want Rebecca to stay. She is a terrific actress. Bring her back! With so many leaving, this is just what we need now!

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
