General Hospital comings and goings reveal the return of Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina Corinthos, a character fans see way too little of for no good reason.
General Hospital Spoilers: Dramatic Kristina Scenes Coming
Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) let the cat out of the bag about some dramatic upcoming scenes with Ainsworth that he had a great time shooting the other
Kristina has been essentially missing in action since she nearly joined Dawn and Day and had to be extracted from a cult but we do occasionally see her. In a tweet, he tagged Ainsworth, along with Cynthia Watros (Nina Reeves) and Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).
“Yesterday I worked with actors who truly blew me away. As @valentinifrank said the acting was off the charts. I felt if I missed one beat I was going to get my ass kicked.@lldubs @watroswatros @_lexiainsworth @GeneralHospital @OfficialGHFC.”
Soap Opera Digest also confirmed a return for Ainsworth in its February 1, 2022 issue and these seem to be two different appearances for the long-missing character.

Where Has Kristina Been?
Kristina has barely been seen for over two years, ever since her family had to extricate her from the Dawn of Day Cult and there seems to be no explanation as to why most of her life takes place off-screen. We saw her briefly when Alexis Davis was released from prison, but we didn’t even see her visit her mother in prison even once when everyone else in town stopped by to tell Alexis all of their many problems in life.
Before that, we did see her react to Sonny being alive when she burst into Casa Corinthos to welcome him home in tears, the only truly emotional reunion he had after being gone for nine months. Sonny then bought the bar that Ava Jerome had asked her to run and seems to have thrown her out of her management position in favor of Phyllis. We just assume Kristina still works at Charlie’s — we just never see her.
Will two upcoming appearances be the start of a new storyline for Kristina? Perhaps she can also get a new love interest since she looks to have been single since she broke up with Parker a few years back. Stay tuned to General Hospital weekdays to find out.
