On July 27, 2016, Daphne introduces herself to Dante on Cassadine Island. Ava doesn’t trust Daphne and thinks she is part of Valentin’s crew. Kevin had been shot by Valentin and is starting to wake. Daphne claims she has a first-aid kit at her house on 13 Amiklon Street. Lulu recognizes that as the return address on the empty envelope Helena left her in her will.

On July 28, Lulu asks if Daphne knew Helena. She claimed she knew of Helena and even occasionally spoke to her but had no association with the Cassadines and wasn’t sure why Lulu would have an envelope with her address. Laura lets Daphne return to her home since Kevin is burning up. Jason and Sam meet up with the group while they wait for Daphne to return. When she gets back, Jason questions if she is alone and Daphne says she is. She brought supplies and antibiotics that were prescribed to her when she had surgery. There was also Ouzo for the pain. Laura thanks Daphne and she leaves the group.

On November 3, Dante tells Lulu he has Daphne in custody. Lulu said that last she heard Daphne never lived at 13 Amiklon on Cassadine Island and that her trail had gone cold. Dante explained that Daphne was found in Auckland using a phony passport. Robert had her sent to Port Charles before sending her to Geneva for questioning. Dante and Lulu get to talk to her first. Daphne recognizes Dante and Lulu. She claims she will answer any questions they have. Dante asks why she was on Cassadine Island. Daphne says she lived there. Dante explains that according to the WSB, the house hasn’t been lived in for years. Dante tells Daphne that the authorities are after Valentin, not her. Daphne says that Valentin didn’t hire her. Helena paid her to come to the island and bear her grandchild. Lulu explained that all of Helena’s sons were dead. Daphne said she was only the surrogate. Her brother was a guard on the island and got Daphne in touch with Helena. Helena has an embryo that Stavros had sired. She paid Daphne a lot of money and gave her a cottage in return. Lulu recognized that Daphne was talking about her embryo and wanted to know where her child was. Daphne said there was no child since she never carried the embryo. She waited months for Helena to return. Helena was dealing with some doctors in Paris and when she came back the deal was off but she said Daphne could stay there as long as she wanted. Daphne pointed out that Helena appeared to be defeated. Lulu wanted to know who carried the embryo and Daphne said that Helena told her the embryo was no longer viable and had been disposed of. At this time, the WSB agents arrived to transfer Daphne. Lulu realized after she left that Helena was taunting her with the empty envelope.

On December 9, Valentin revealed that Lulu is Charlotte's mother. He explains that Helena promised Stavros a child with Lulu, but after Helena discovered that Stavros could not father a child, she sent Daphne to seduce Valentin and recover a sample. Daphne brought Valentin's sample to Helena, and by the time Valentin figured out what had happened, the embryo had already been created, so he stole it from Helena and recruited Claudette to carry it. She gave birth to his daughter, Charlotte. However, Claudette betrayed him and took his baby away from him.

On May 8, 2017, Jason shows up at Daphne’s waitressing job in Greece. Jason explains that Sam helped him locate Daphne. Daphne said she talked to the Greek authorities and told Jason that Helena used her like she uses everyone. Jason believes Helena used her and asks if Daphne knows his son Jake. Daphne said she heard rumors that Helena had a little boy who she rescued after a boat sank and his parents were lost at sea. Jason pulls out the book that Helena left Liz in her will about Jake’s time on Cassadine Island. He shows Daphne the drawing of the scarecrow and she thinks it is just a fairy tale but admits it could be real. Jason wants Daphne to take him to Cassadine Island right now but she is scared of Helena’s spirit now that Helena is dead. Daphne agrees to draw Jason a map to the island. He threatens to come back for her if she is lying to him.
