Aardanowski. I know I probably spelled that wrong

 

Ohh, I forgot about her. I liked her too.

 

 Sean & Tiff (not remembered on the show, I think fans still pretty much remember them fondly)

 

Them too. I hope they get a shoutout during the 50th anniversary.

Not by the fans (okay, it seems like it sometimes), but even with her return in the final week, it feels like she was largely
forgotten:

Amanda and Alan-Michael Spaulding. It was a pretty egregious crime that neither of Alan's living biological children (that late '90s rewrite of Amanda's paternity never happened as far as I'm concerned) merited even a mention after Alan's death. It was all about Phillip and Phillip's children with that succubus leech Beth (what about Phillip's firstborn son, Zach, who Phillip and Harley named after Alan?).

Come to think of it, Hope Bauer Spaulding, Alan's true love and Alan-Michael's mother, was largely nonexistent even while Alan-Michael was front and center in the nineties.

One of my favorite scene-stealers, Detective Patrick Cutter (played by Scott Hoxby), is largely remembered for the way he died.

Right on the money. The Hope one was especially egregious. I think it was around two decades before they even mentioned her again (when that last, ridiculously young A-M was around).

Does anyone remember what finally made Gloria leave Pine Valley?  I recall the scene with Stuart walking her out of Myrtle's house, and I know it had something to do with Dimitri and Maddie, but I'm blanking on the specifics.

B&B:

Zack Hamilton, Taylor's brother. Has he even been mentioned since he left?

After Taylor gave birth to Thomas in 1998 he was mentined and again when she came back from the dead in 2005... But apart from that: truly forgotten.

Dimitri married her in order to have a mother for Maddie in his custody fight against Edmund. He did care about her, but when she found out the truth, she divorced him. She also had a pregnancy scare which was likely cut short because of Teresa Blake deciding to leave. After the divorce, she got a job offer in California, and accepted it.

Since others haved posted their Julia Barrett love, I will say I never understood why they never brought her back permantently in the mid 90's.  She was literally the only good thing about Brenda's breakdown story in 1997.  Aside from her ties to Brenda she had ties to Aj, Ned, TG (as Bill) not to mention Lucy and the Q's.  Since Brenda was so prominent on the canvas, I found it strange they never brought back her only living (at the time) relative.  Julia would have been perfect as Brenda's disapproving sister and would perhaps stop her from some of the ridiculous things she did while mixing it up with Ned and Lois.  She would have been better than Katherine (with more rooting value) in the Ned/Lois/Kathy Bell drama.

 

I liked V a lot as well.  She obviously was meant for Jax, but that was pushed aside when VM re-signed at the eleventh hour and MB didn't.   She stayed on the show for a while after with no real purpose, but it was clear she was a charming actress.  I think she could have taken the place of Chloe easily in the mixed married story.  Although there was nothing terribly objectionable about Chloe, V always seemed to have more depth.

Hadn't Crystal Carson made the decision to bow out of acting by then?  As much as I'd have loved to have seen the issues unfold and eventually come to a head between the two sisters (as opposed to her simply visiting my girl and returning for her funeral), I can't see how that would've worked if she hadn't wanted to reprise that role long-term.  I'm just glad that they'd gotten closure before Brenda's "death", period.

the character could have been easily recast and should have been. I could see someone like Rebecca Staab playing her

Even though they were before my time, this coupling has wormed their way into my heart thanks to YouTube, and sadly their forgotten IMO. A travesty. . .
