On ABC’s General Hospital viewers learned on Wednesday that it is indeed Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst), the jilted ex of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), who is behind Hayden (Rebecca Budig) showing up out of nowhere claiming to be Jake’s (Billy Miller) wife!
Hayden and Ric apparently met via an online dating site, they did not have a love connection, so Ric – the ever calculated one – found out that Hayden needed plenty of cash for her debt that incurred after her husband left her. Hayden agreed to be Ric’s co-conspirator in this scheme, including even posing for faux wedding photos with a guy Ric hired to pose as Jake with his “face” before his accident.
Thank goodness for Carly (Laura Wright) though! While Elizabeth starts to think that Hayden’s story of being Jake’s wife may be true, Carly is putting her foot down, saying something is way off and they head to the Metro Court to find Hayden, only when they get there they walk-in on Jake and Hayden seemingly locked in a kiss. This happened after Hayden armed with a wedding ring, (thanks to Ric since that could have been a bone of contention that would have blown the ruse sky high) puts the supposed MIA ring on Jake’s finger. When the gals walk-in viewers see Jake resisting the kiss being planted on him by Hayden!
But how far can Ric go with this before someone pins this on him? Even the guy he paid off to take the wedding photos showed up and looked like he was about to blackmail Ric!
So, what do you think will happen next? Will everyone in Port Charles be so duped, that they cannot figure out, or get the good on the fact that Ric and Hayden are scheming together?
Now that Rebecca Budig is on the canvas, who do you think she will be romantically paired with on GH, ultimately? Will Hayden worm her way into Jake’s heart … or someone else’s? Share your thoughts on the story point and your predictions on it below!
