I am an avid soap fan and have been for many years. Some of my favorite soaps were Another World, Texas, and Santa Barbara. I love to spend time with my children and grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy reading as well as writing fan fiction. General Hospital’s Sam and Jason are one of my favorite couples of all time.

    This character hadn’t been heard from since 1984! That’s 36 years! 36 years! If you’re looking to bring someone back, how about keeping Ethan. Or bring Morgan back, or how about just using some if the remarkable talent that’s already on contract but we almost never heard from…but a 36 year old character? Stupid waste of budget dollars.

    I LOVE Kim Delaney! Why NOT her? She is an icon and went on to do other things. We all know soaps have a past. If you don’t KNOW the past, learn it! Get over yourselves if you say NO to this. A loyal fan would not have an issue with this. Period.
