What Stefan did not know, however,
was that Alexis had learned during her investigation that she was Natasha. Luke caught on to Alexis's plan and learned about
her mother Kristen Bergman. Luke told Alexis the history of the relationship between her mother and Stavros and the brutal
way Helena Cassadine had murdered her.
Alexis was shocked to find out that Helena had recovered
from her illness and had returned to Port Charles. Helena had known all along about Alexis's true identity and had promised
Stavros that she would spare her life as long as Alexis never knew the truth. Instead of killing Alexis, Helena made Alexis
her point person in her plan to wrest control of the Cassadine empire from Stefan. After being rejected from Stefan when she
told him that she was Natasha, Alexis realized that she had no choice but to do Helena's bidding.
Alexis had also found herself attracted to Ned Ashton.
Their attraction to each other culminated when they made love for the first time on Valentine's Day.
Alexis wed Jax Jacks as part of the plan to keep Chloe
Morgan in possession of her company, Chloe Morgan Designs. Alexis and Ned Ashton secretly managed to keep up their relationship
as much as possible. Now that Alexis is divorced from Jax, she must face her ongoing fears about marrying Ned. She loves him,
but has always been apprehensive about making the commitment to marry him. Finally, however, Alexis agreed to become Mrs.
Ned Ashton. Ned and Alexis made a sudden trip to Belize and planned on getting married the next day. Unfortunately, the media
tracked them down and forced them to delay their wedding.
Alexis was shocked by the media attention to her and Ned's
wedding plans. Alexis was even more shocked to find a photo of herself wearing only a teddy and she learned that she had been
labeled as "Eddie's Angel" in the media! In the end, Ned and Alexis realized they had no choice but to cooperate with the
media and give them what they wanted. To that end, Alexis and Ned planned a huge wedding gala and through no fault of her
own, Alexis ended up with Carly as her maid of honor! At the wedding,
Alexis panicked and ended up flagging down a Semi and causing the break up of their relationship.
Next in line for Alexis was being kidnapped by Sorel (who broke her arm)
and she, along with Carly, Zander and Sonny were caught in a bomb explosion, after Sonny decided to strap one to his waist.
Everyone survived, and Alexis and Sonny were starting to grow closer as friends.
Soon after the bombing, Alexis was beiginning to remember more and more about her
past, and of her mother. It was not until Jax came to town with a surprise for Alexis, did we learn the truth about Alexis
as a child. She had witnessed Helena Cassidine, her step mother, slitting her real mother's throat. It was also learned
that Alexis had a little baby sister, Kristina. Alexis went to hide her young baby sister in a barn, but when Alexis
came back to get her, she was gone.
