In 2015, Elizabeth met a woman calling herself Hayden Barnes, who claimed to be amnesiac Jake Doe’s long-lost wife. As Elizabeth was dating Jake at the time, she took an instant dislike to Hayden. However, Liz eventually learned that Hayden was her sister via an affair her father, Jeff Webber, had years ago. It took a while, but Elizabeth and Hayden eventually grew close, but Hayden has since disappeared from town and nobody knows where she is.
That doesn’t mean Rebecca Herbst doesn’t want her friend Rebecca Budig back on “General Hospital” so the Webber sisters can be together again.
“I really loved having Rebecca Budig on the show,” Herbst told Soap Opera Digest. “Aside from me, personally, absolutely loving Rebecca and having a friendship with her and how every time I got to work with her, I had a great day, I think Elizabeth also really enjoyed having a sister and having that family connection. It was nice because they didn’t start out as friends but they build a friendship and a relationship. I would really love to have her back.”
With Elizabeth now dating Hayden’s ex, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton), if Budig were to return to the role, it would make things very soap opera messy, indeed.
