WOW!

I bet JFP made this happen, she really loves Robin and Robin really loves Jill.

I love Robin Christopher and I think she's hella UNDERRATED. I also gather that she seemed closer with her GH co-stars than her co-stars on AMC, which might explain why she's returning to GH, and not AMC. I would love for Skye to cross over to Pine Valley periodically though.

Skye matured A LOT on GH, though she still had some of her trademark bite. Even if she returned to AMC, it might not be as the Skye most AMC fans remembered.

I'll say this though Guza didn't write anything substantial for her later on, he never killed her off, which he could have easily done and gotten away with. I think he loved Robin Christopher the actress, but he obviously doesn't know how to write for non-mob characters. Then again, Skye became a mafia princess at the end of her GH stint by taking over Lorenzo's "business" and birthing his spawn.

Or maybe it was just JFP protecting Skye/Robin at the time, who knows...

I think it probably was JFP.

I believe her exit was also during the writers' strike. I remember thinking her last episode was remarkably well-written, even down to a poignant goodbye with Jax. I knew Luza couldn't have been heavily involved.

Michael Logan has more on the story, with a quote from Guza:

Robin Christopher Returns to General Hospital

by Michael Logan February 17, 2010 04:16 PM EST

It looks like General Hospital is trying hard to up its Q rating. Last week the ABC soap announced the addition of a new Quartermaine relation—African-American med student Maya Ward (Annie Ilonzeh)—and now comes word that the show is bringing back Skye Quartermaine, the lusciously wicked divorcee played by Robin Christopher. The character, last seen in 2008, will hit the air March 31.

“It’s hard to write GH without the Qs,” says the soap’s multi Emmy-winning head writer Bob Guza. “Every time we drift away from the family, even though we’ve diluted them a bit over the years, it just feels wrong. So we’re looking to build them up again.” Who will Skye sink her well-mannied claws into this time? Teases Guza: “Luke [Anthony Geary] clearly has some needs right now. We’ll be doing some really fun stuff with Luke, Skye and Luke’s wife Tracy [Jane Elliott]. And Alice [bergen Williams], the Q’s maid, is going to play a big part in this, as well.”

Guza also gives us more details about Maya (arriving March 31). “When you’re a member of the Ward family in Port Charles, it comes with a whole s--tload of expectations,” the scribe says. “This is an extremely high-achieving family, so Maya’s hitting the ground with a lot of pressure on her. Her drive is to be a doctor, so anything—or anybody—who gets in her way is going to be a problem.” That said, Maya will at some point be romantically linked with a Spencer, but Guza shrugs off Internet speculation that it’ll for sure be Ethan (Nathan Parsons). Instead, he hints that it could easily be Lucky [Jonathan Jackson], noting that the heartbroken cop “will be romantically unentangled very soon.”

Also look for Maya’s younger half-sister, Zoe Richardson, to show up in Port Charles in April (the role is not yet cast). “She’s a bored, 17-year-old wild child who doesn’t care about the Ward legacy, because she’s technically not a Ward,” Guza explains. “She sees that Maya has a good thing going living with the Quartermaines. She shows up to get her piece, too.” Expect Zoe to eventually be paired with wannabe mobster Michael Corinthos (Drew Garrett).

Though Guza is busy expanding the Quartermaines, he has no immediate plans to do the same with the Cassadines, despite recent reports that the much-discussed villain, Valentine, will turn up soon. “We have a lot of other fish to fry right now,” says Guza. “Valentine’s arrival is not imminent. This is right up there with those rumors that Genie Francis and Vanessa Marcil are coming.” Besides, the evil Cassadine matriarch Helena (Constance Towers) has other family matters in mind. Says Guza: “Liz [Rebecca Herbst] is pregnant and Helena is going to be sniffing around. Wait until you see her get her teeth into the idea of having a new heir. It’s raging lunacy!”

Then AMC should be her base and she can cross-over to GH.

I know I'm probably being immature here but I really think AMC needs her alot more right now with DC's departure.

No, I think if a crossover were to be done, you want the show with the bigger viewing audience, GH, to crossover to the one with the smaller audience, All My Children. Therefore, you start her out in Port Charles and then have her go to Pine Valley.

But this is just speculation on my part. ABC may not do any crossovers.
