Hayley then starts crying leaving Kate confused and Hayley confides in her that she is gay. 12.08 In Silent Seas We Drown Kate has been avoiding Hayley confusing Yasmin.

Hayley tells her it's okay, she is only the second person she told and it can be quite the shock. Kate asks who else knows, assuming it is Yasmin but Hayley tells her it was Savannah Wilde who found out because she visited Grace Baker's grave a few times despite not knowing. Kate then tells her the reason she has been distant is because she thinks she may be bisexual.
12.11 The Carpal Tunnel of Love Kate and Hayley resume their friendship and continue to hang out with Yasmin at school. Yasmin goes home straight after to study for the SAT and the pair go to get coffee at Kelly's. Kate asks her how she knew she was gay and not Bi.

Life is confusing enough.

The whole time Sera spent in Australia she never contacted Hayley other than the occasional Facebook post and Christmas card. The pair continues to talk before heading home and they end up watching a movie at Hayley's place while everyone else is gone.

Yasmin later calls her and tells her she needs to come over now and won't specify why other than she needs to get their ASAP. Hayley rushes over to Yasmin's place where Yasmin leads her to her room before locking her in. Hayley is confused and tells her to let her out. Yasmin tells her not until she and Kate work out their problems. Hayley turns and sees Kate in Yasmin's old desk chair who tells her this wasn't her idea.

Hayley turns her phone off and tells Yasmin that she doesn't want to deal with that right now. Yasmin asks if she thinks her parents will be mad, because she has met them and they are really nice and don't seem homophobic. Hayley tells them that she doesn't think they would judge, she just wasn't ready to come out yet, she didn't plan on it coming out like this. She wanted to wait until she was ready and able to craft something to say and figure it out, not have a picture of her kissing her girlfriend end up on a stupid gossip site. Hayley then starts crying and Yasmin does her best to calm Hayley.
13.02 Glory and Gore Hayley finally returns home to find her parents and Sera worried sick about her. When she walks into the room, the three rush and hug her asking her where she was and letting her know they were worried. Hayley doesn't say anything and Ellie has her sit down on the sofa with them. She tells her that nothing changes. Hayley starts crying again and Sera tries to tell her that everything is okay. Ellie then tells her that whether she is gay, bi or confused, nothing changes and they still love her. Hayley stays quiet for a moment before saying she's gay. She's known for a while and hasn't told anyone. She wasn't ready to come out and when she did, she wanted to do it in a better way. Prepare a speech or something. She knew Ellie would accept her because she is a biologist and homosexuality is found in different species, Damian has never been judgemental, she just wanted to do it on her own terms.

Hayley tells her she just wants to talk and Kate tells her that they will never talk again, especially since she took advantage of her and tried to force her sexuality on her. Hayley is confused at what Kate is saying, and asks her where this came from. Kate tells Hayley to stay away from her before walking off. Hayley looks around and sees people staring and rushes out of the school. Sera follows her and finds her at the Port Charles Park crying. Sera doesn't know what to say but sits next to her and lets her know she is there. Hayley finally tells her that she was hoping Kate would be the silver lining in her life as everything was crashing down around her and now that is crashing too. Sera asks Hayley how her life is crashing down, she has great friends and gets amazing grades and is incredibly smart. Hayley tells her that she is weird and that's all people see her as. She then tells Sera that she is the glamorous one who everyone loves and has a perfect life and the perfect boyfriend. She is everything that she isn't and their parents adore how different she is. Sera asks if she is kidding and Hayley looks at her confused. Sera than tells her that she can actually have a conversation with their parents and know what they are saying, school comes to her easily and is way smarter then she is. If anyone is jealous of the other, it should be her. Hayley is shocked to learn this and asks if Sera really feels that way. Sera tells her it's true and one of the reasons she went to Melbourne, she felt like she didn't belong at home because she didn't understand anything to do with computers like their dad talks about or biology like their mom talks about and Hayley always understood, she felt like a stranger in her own home. Hayley then laughs about they spent all this time being jealous of each other. Sera then tells her that she isn't leaving again and she will be there for her.

Hayley doesn't look up and tells her she is trying to figure out who runs Raw. Real. Sera asks how and Hayley tells her she is going to attempt another back hack. She explains that Gabbi Montgomery and Aiden Cassadine had asked her and their dad to attempt to earlier. He couldn't find anything other than the fact they use a software to make the signal from a post bounce all over Eastern Europe and hopes this time she can get something. Sera asks what happened that they tried to figure it out and Hayley explains that Miranda Montgomery had gone missing and someone was posting candid photos of her on Raw. Real. They couldn't find out the IP address of the post, but she was able to find the location based on the background of the photos. Hayley continues to attempt to find an IP address but is unable to.

Later in the day, Hayley is asked by the principal if she knows who would have written that on her locker. Hayley, knowing it was either Kate or Courtney lies and tells him she doesn't know. At home, she is confronted by Sera for not telling him the truth that Kate and Courtney are the ones who spray painted the slur on her locker. Hayley tells her that it won't end if she does. If she wants this circus of what Kate is doing to her to end, then she needs to let it and ignore her. When the pair realize that Hayley isn't doing anything in response, they will find something else better to do.
13.12 Thank You For the Venom Hayley is seen glued to her computer trying to find a way to hack Raw. Real. and find out who outed her.

She explains to Sera that whoever runs the site has illegally hacked the PCPD and released information on the car crash Kate's sister Brandi caused that killed Kaylee Morasco and Amaya Martin, putting Vanessa Vega in a coma and putting Yasmin in her wheelchair. If she can figure out who runs the site and outed her and do so legally, she can turn them in for hacking the PCPD. Sera is impressed and asks if she can help. Hayley tells her she can't think of anything, but if she does, she will let her know.
13.13 Stained Glass Eyes and Colorful Tears While continuing to monitor the site for a way to trace the posts, Sera comes home from school upset.

Yasmin asks if that is long enough and Hayley tells her it is and she will find out who did this.
13.15 We Were Doomed From The Start Hayley works hard on developing the program, which includes staying up all night and skipping class the next day.

Hayley then goes back to developing the program and finally gets it ready.

It is taking forever and a new story hasn't been posted in forever. Sera recommends sending in a fake story to get the site to post. Yasmin says it's a good idea but submitting a story means it has to be juicy. Sera tells them that she has a story that will definitely get posted. She then explains that while she was in Melbourne, the host family she was staying with went to Sydney a lot on vacation where she met and had a weeklong romance with a notable celebrity. Yasmin and Hayley are shocked and Sera goes to her room and brings back a flash drive and plugs it into Hayley's computer before finding a file and opening the pictures.
