Emma Samms 

Emma Samms was back to GH as Holly from October 2022 to November 2022 and was revealed to be working for Victor in an attempt to keep her son safe.

When things got to be too much, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) staged an explosion in a cabin and sent Holly to a burn clinic to keep her safe from Victor’s machinations.

Since Miss Wu remembered drugging the Cassadine recently and the man saw a doctor who revealed that he has a pathogen in his system, that could only mean Holly’s on her way back.

SoapsSpoilers can officially confirm that we can find Holly back on the show in April 14th.
