This can be from any soaps, was there any that you thought were well done(written, acted, the whole nine yards)

While it had it's flaws, and wasn't always great I thought Anna's return was very well done on AMC.

Katherine Bell, I was simply shocked when she walked in the Court Room during Stefan's trial.

I thought Anna's on AMC was awful. Wrong soap and she came back "wrong". She did not feel like Anna at all and they started writng her to the extreme to differentiate between she and Alex bc FH doesnt have the range to pull off a dual role

Best:

Days - Hope. Now that was a GOOD story. The whole Gina mysery and how it had implications on Bo and Billie was classic soap.

Yeah Finola said she hated playing twins and had to ask David Canary how he did it or something like that LOL.

I do love that they hit it out of the park with her and Robin's reunion. GH apparantly wasn't interested

I really liked Frisco coming back from the dead on GH just in time to watch Felicia marry Colton. Laura back from the dead in the early 80s was good, and despite what every other person ever born thinks I liked Stavros coming back from the dead in 2001.

I Loved the scenes when Abe returned from the dead and Lexie was leaping for Joy! I like Lexie's return as well.

Doug Williams return was good as well especially with Julie just rambling on and on talking to him and finally realizing he was there.

Worst

The real Tony DiMera, he just returned and picked up his life as if it was nothing 20+ years later.

Abe's return and Lexie's reaction were good. One of very few "payoffs" of that awful story.

And yes, that Real Tony DiMera was ridiculous. Stuck on an island for 20 years and then he resumes business as usual, suit 'n tie, like he's not phased at all? They put no effort into the character.

Both of Taylor's returns from the dead on B&B were well done (well, for B&B at least). The 2005 one was probably the best of the two, in terms of shock value. The fact that we didn't even find out until the SOW cover came out is still mindblowing to me.

Brooke seeing her for the first time was certainly chilling

I lobster hated Brenda's 2002 return, especially since Skye was thrown under the bus for her(and it kept backing over her and over her, I bet she still has the tire marks from it) and Jax was written an utter d-bag for that wench

Also he knew John as if he knew him, if I remember correctly. I think knew Lexie his sister too.

S/N: So many of the ones who "died" or left town while Drake was Roman, comes back to town and knows him as John Black without questions.
