Betsy first appeared when Franco stole Aiden Cassadine from the hospital. He told her he wanted to give her the baby to make up for being a bad kid.

Betsy assured Franco that she loved him. Dante Falconeri eventually managed to convince Betsy to give Aiden back to his parents.

In 2013, Betsy was questioned in regards to the location of Franco's daughter, Lauren. Betsy denied having any contact with Lauren and accused Lauren's mother of keeping her from Franco.

On December 1, it was revealed that the man everyone thought was Jason, was actually his twin brother, Drew. Jason's memories were implanted into Drew.
