The last time McCullough visited General Hospital was in December of 2017 when Robin paid a visit to Jason, who had recently returned from the dead. Because she was the one who had brought Drew back to life believing he was Jason, she found herself caught up in the tale of the two Jasons. Has she returned with more information for the brothers, or is she just here to support Anna and say goodbye to Nathan?
Before that stint, McCullough appeared in May of 2017 when Robin returned for the nurses ball and got herself kidnapped by Olivia Jerome. At the time, she also revealed to Anna that she was pregnant because the soap chose wrote in McCullough's real-life pregnancy!

Since 2014, McCullough has been returning to General Hospital for appearances of varying lengths depending on the storyline and her schedule. In the past, she told Soaps In Depth that “it’s always great” to go back. “It feels like a nice little visit,” she confided. “I get excited, like I’m going on vacation sort of — a working vacation!”
In addition to her acting, McCullough has also stepped behind the camera and has directed episodes of Pretty Little Liars, her own project, Hey Day, and most recently, the online series Youth and Consequences and episodes of One Day at a Time. McCullough admitted that when she returns to General Hospital, she likes to make a point of hanging out behind the scenes as well. “I always try to pop into the booth with the director, assistant director, lighting coordinator and producers,” she reports. “That’s where I got the bug to be a director, so I usually grab one of the free chairs and sit for a while.”
