Morgan, whose credits include recent episodes of Happy Endings and How I Met Your Mother, will make her debut the week of May 21, when Sonny and Alexis’ daughter returns to Port Charles in not the best of moods, having learned that there was much more to her admission to Yale than she originally thought.

In fact, Kristina will put her scant Ivy League days behind her to lay down roots in Port Charles, where she has some major plans for the summer — and I’m pretty sure they don’t include waitressing at Kelly’s.
