This was a soap loaded episode. In addition to the performers amybrickwallace mentioned, Hunter von Leer (Larry Joe, GH), Bibi Osterwald (Stella, Where the Heart Is), and Melissa Converse also appear. In case you do not recognize the name, Melissa Converse was better known by her first married name, Melissa Murphy. She was the beautiful blonde who played Jo's daughter Patti on Search for Tomorrow in 1966 and 1967.

THAT'S who that is!!! For YEARS I've been trying to figure out why Melissa Converse looked so familiar to me. I've got about a full month of SFT from the summer of 1966 on video tape & Melissa Murphy is playing Patti (quite well, too, I might add). Those episodes are REALLY good & I really connected with Murphy's Patti and always wondered why I'd never seen her in anything else. But it turns out I have! lol I never made the connection between Converse & Murphy because none of Melissa Murphy's credits are listed under Melissa Converse or vice versa.

Melissa Converse Murphy is said the be the daughter of Peggy Converse and Don Porter. Don played Sally Field's father Russ on Gidget and a ton of other roles. Melissa appeared in an episode of Gidget having a crush on Russ played by her real life Dad. Yuck!!!

I know that Sharon Gabet started at EON in 1977, the same year that both Don May and Maeve McGuire left EON. Did SG's Raven get to interact with either of them before their respective departures?

Sharon Gabet must have started around September 1977. She couldn't interact with Donald May as Adam was murdered in June 1977. However, she must have met Maeve McGuire as she last aired as Nicole in late December 1977 before being replaced by Jayne Bentzen in January 1978.

Does anyone know what character Lynne Rogers[TD,ATWT, GL, DS, Mrs. Briggs and Marge Winslow EoN and others] played prior to 1965? Also, I read that Joe Allen, Jr. [Miles Pardee LoL] appeared on EoN. Does anyone know what character he played? I read articles that mentioned both actors appearing on EoN, and I wondered if anyone knew more about them.

Yes, she was. As the show's longest-running cast member and mother figure, Ann Flood carved out a niche all her own on in the annals of daytime drama. It's a shame she never found another long-running gig on another soap (though she did play against type as a villainess in the last few weeks of SFT in 1986), though I believe she chose to eventually retire from show biz.
