Past: Nanny for Tea Delgado under assumed name
Past: Gossip columnist for Todd Manning's Port Charles Sun
Past: Nanny for Peter and Diana Taylor
It was 1976, and Heather Grant was just 19 years old when she arrived in Port Charles with fake references. She began watching the daughter of Peter and Diana Taylor, and soon had a one-night-stand with Jeff Webber. When Heather became pregnant she kept it a secret, but ultimately told Jeff. He insisted she get an abortion so he could stay with his wife Monica. Heather tried many things, even killing herself, but nothing worked to steal Jeff’s affections from Monica. Heather went to New York and gave birth to a baby boy, then sold him on the black market where he was unknowingly adopted by Diana.
Jeff returned to Heather after Monica divorced him and she lied and told him their baby was stillborn. They bonded and got married while Heather continued to be a nanny for the Taylors, which now included her own son. Heather got pregnant again, then miscarried. She tried to slip LSD to Diane to make her crazy so she could take her son back, but Heather accidentally poisoned herself and was institutionalized when she began hallucinating.
After she was released Heather plotted to get rid of Diane, who by now knew her son PJ was really Jeff’s biological son. Heather stole a gun and watched Jeff and Diane in bed together. Diane revealed to Jeff he was really the father of her son, and he angrily left. When Heather snuck in to kill Diane, she was already dead. Heather tried to frame someone else for the murder, but the real killer was eventually revealed to be Heather’s mother Alice Grant.
Heather left Port Charles, then returned in 2004. She began to help Lesley Webber look after little Lulu Spencer, but was really back in town to seduce, marry, and kill the widowed Edward Quartermaine. Edward’s daughter Tracy Quartermaine offered Heather money to leave town and her father, but Heather refused and she and Edward got even closer. Edward resisted giving in fully to Heather despite her best efforts. When Edward suffered a heart attack after Heather spiked his drink, she stayed by his side and was rewarded when he moved her into the mansion so she could nurse him back to health.
They were soon wed, but Monica threw them out before they could consummate their marriage. Edward and Heather moved above Kelly’s Diner, but to Heather’s horror Edward also gave away all of his money and shares in ELQ, declaring he only needed Heather in his life. Tracy and Heather worked together to have Edward committed.
When Heather had been living at the mansion, she had moved a comatose Laura Spencer in the attic in order to lure Luke back to town. Tracy's son Dillon saw her checking on Laura, and Heather moved Laura to an undisclosed location.
Tracy and Skye began to work together to prove to Edward that Heather was not who he thought she was. They got Edward released from the mental institution and he got an annulment from Heather. Heather plotted to kill Edward and Luke agreed to help her in order to set her up. Heather lashed out when she realized the plot and injected Skye with LSD.
Heather agreed to tell Luke where Laura was stashed if he would marry her, and he agreed. But when Heather arrived at her nuptials, Luke had called the police and she was hauled off to Ferncliff.
In 2012, Sam Morgan visited Heather at the mental hospital with questions about her husband Jason’s birth. Heather agreed to tell her what she knew if Sam promised to deliver a letter to Heather’s son Steve Webber. Heather told Sam that when Jason’s mother Susan was passed out after delivering Jason, she gave birth to a second baby that Heather sold to a nurse. Sam never delivered the letter.
Heather was released not long after into Steve’s care. She clashed with his girlfriend Olivia Falconeri and at Olivia’s urging, Steve arranged for his mother to meet with Dr. Ewen Keenan at General Hospital. Heather ran into Sam at the hospital and threatened her for not delivering her letter.
Steve was arrested for the murder of a patient in Memphis. Heather learned he had allowed his patient to die in order to save the life of a patient of Maggie Wurth's. Heather poisoned Maggie with some iced tea and faked a suicide note that cleared Steve, and he was released.
Heather stumbled upon the dead body of Anthony Zacchara, and assuming Luke had something to do with it, buried the body herself during a massive storm. After, she ran into Todd Manning who was trying to get help for the newborn child of Tea Delgado. She switched the dead baby with Sam’s newborn son, whom Heather had also stumbled upon in the storm.
Heather blackmailed Todd into giving her a job at his newspaper, the Port Charles Sun, and she informed Luke she had buried Anthony’s body for him. Luke wanted to go to the cops so she knocked him out and held him hostage, hoping he would fall in love with her. Heather plotted to inject Luke’s girlfriend Anna Devane with LSD, but she injected Olivia instead. When she returned to Luke, the cabin he was in was on fire. Anna ultimately rescued Luke and arrested Heather.
Heather taunted Anna by telling her that her daughter Robin Scorpio Drake was really alive. Heather was sent back to Ferncliff, but she escaped and showed up at Tea’s door and talked her way into being the nanny of her son, who was really Sam’s. Heather kidnapped the baby and sneaked into the hospital to get him medicine he needed. Olivia confronted her and was rewarded with a shove down the stairs. Sam and Jason found Heather and their son on the roof. Heather jump and Jason snatched the baby just in time.
Heather slipped into a coma and was admitted to Ferncliff when she awoke. After briefly escaping when Edward died and getting a peek at his will, she was put back in Ferncliff. She was soon joined by Lucy Coe and Todd, locked up for mental help of their own. Together they escaped to Wyndemere, and Heather sneaked off to kidnap Sam’s son again. She was apprehended by another mental patient, Stephen Clay, who choked Heather, tossed her in the river, and took the baby.
Heather survived and went to see her son. She attacked Olivia with a knife, but gutted Steve on accident. He survived and she was admitted to Miscavige maximum security mental hospital, but she snuck out regularly to grab BLTs from Kelly’s. She helped the artist Franco with paintings, unaware he was using them for an upcoming show. Heather crashed Franco’s art show, revealed his deceit and dropped the bomb that Franco was her biological son with Scott Baldwin.
Heather was insistent that Franco stop seeing Carly Jacks, but Franco refused. When Franco caught Heather trying to sneak into Carly's shower to stab her, Franco turned the knife on Heather. He killed her and buried her, letting everyone believe Heather was still at Miscavige.
But Heather wasn't dead, and decided to turn the tables on her son. She kidnapped Carly, made it look like she was killed, and left clues to make it appear Franco committed the crime. Luke found Heather holding Carly in the Quartermaine boathouse, but was knocked out by Heather's thugs.
Kiki Jerome believed in Franco's innocence and went to Miscavige to make sure Heather hadn't escaped. She learned Heather was catatonic and saw the back of her head, but it was actually Luke, drugged and held captive.
Heather was really holding Carly in the Wyndemere stables.

Due to breaking news on weather, today's recap started at 3:02 PM, two minutes into the show. At Shadybrook, Heather asks Nina about her call with her lawyer. Nina tells Heather that it wasn’t her lawyer on the phone but Franco. Nina gushes to Heather, who she believes is a woman named Diana, about Franco. Heather acts impressed that she knows a big time artist like Franco and asks to speak with him the next time he calls.
At Pentonville Franco is busted by a guard who finds Sonny’s cellphone in his bunk and gives the guard an original Franco sketch in order to avoid another stint in solitary. Franco also gets to keep the phone and gives Nina a call to check on her. He’s shocked when Nina hands the phone to Heather. Elsewhere, Ava talks with Julian about Sonny, who she suspects tried to have her killed. Julian doesn’t think Sonny was behind the hit on her, but that it was their old boss Fluke. He informs her that Fluke was not Faison after all, and he may actually be Bill Eckert. Julian also tells her about his plan to escape in order to protect Lucas. Ava informs Julian that she has a way out and says that Madeline is being transported to the PCPD jail until her trial and she plans to hitch a ride on the van. Julian says he will too and convinces Ava that she needs him for protection. Before Julian can tell her that he’s working with Sonny a guard catches her and drags her back to her cell. In another part of the prison Shawn meets with Sonny and says that Eckert’s grave was empty. Sonny isn’t surprised and plans to handle Fluke himself but orders Shawn not to tip Fluke off as he could snap. Shawn confesses to Sonny that Jordan happened to trail him so she knows what’s going on. He swears that Jordan is loyal though. Later Sonny fills Julian in on Eckert’s grave being empty.
Fluke shows up at the cemetery and runs into Dante and wonders what Dante is doing here. Before Dante says anything, Lulu, Bobbie and Lucas arrive. They are also shocked to see Dante, who claims he knows Lulu’s family is important to her, and asks about Ruby’s connection to Bill. Bobbie tells him that Ruby was Bill’s sister and gives a speech about Ruby, telling Lucas that Ruby would be so proud of him. They all plan to meet this evening at The Haunted Star for the party. Everyone leaves except for Fluke, who takes a moment alone at Ruby’s grave and spots Bill’s grave, which is still open.
Back at Shadybrook, Heather talks to Franco on the phone. He’s shocked to learn his mother is there and warns her to stay away from Nina. Heather tells Franco that she’s going to punish him by crushing Nina. Franco begs her not to do this, but Heather says there is no way he can stop her and hangs up the phone as she hands it back to Nina. Nina thinks they must have gotten disconnected. The phone rings as Franco tries calling back, but the guard takes it from Nina as she’s out of time.
At the mental hospital, Nina plays Battleship with Heather. Webber likes her and says they don't belong in there. They sit down and talk about the people who betrayed them. Heather jumps when Nina mentions Franco. She pretends she's only heard of him by name. Nina talks about how much he helped her. "He's not here to watch over you now," Heather says. That freaks Nina out a little. Everything she loved is gone. She unloads about her mother and wishes she had a mom like Heather. "Come to mama," Heather says. They hug. Heather claims her name is Diana Taylor. Later, Nina gets a call from Franco. He's sorry for everything and worried about her. She says she made a friend.
