Earlier this week, the nominations for the 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced, and one nominee in particular had some fabulous news to share. Though Alley Mills is known to viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful as Pam, in 2022, she stepped into the role as Heather on General Hospital and will be making another return to the ABC soap.

In a recent interview with Michael Fairman, Mills, who was last seen in the role in February and was nominated in the Outstanding Guest Performer category, revealed that she’ll be back. “I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this but,” Mills stated. “I am coming back.”

Though she doesn’t know when or how her character will return, the last time we saw Heather in Port Charles, she was brought into her daughter Esme’s hospital room. Heather couldn’t wait to meet her new grandchild but Esme warned she would never lay eyes on him.

When Heather was dragged out of Esme’s room in cuffs, she ran into Laura and Spencer and lashed out at the mayor for filling Esme’s head with lies about her and blamed Laura for everything that had gone wrong. Before being taken to prison, Heather vowed that they hadn’t seen the last of her. And if you recall, shortly after, Esme received a letter from her mother and appeared terrified after reading it.
