Just watched Josh's interview with Ellen

First off, Ellen brought up AMC's cancellation & he said he was sad about it. Then they showed a clip of him on the show, it was from his FIRST EPISODE on AMC. He looked unrecognizable to me in that clip!! Then Ellen mentioned how a lot of actors started out on soaps & noted how Josh won an Emmy for his role on AMC.

Ellen brought up how she knew his character on AMC died but noted that the body was never found. She said she thinks it would be great if his character came back "all of a sudden to life" before AMC ends.

Josh said, "It wouldn't necessarily be coming back to life, because they don't know if he was ever dead." ...then Ellen said "So he may come back?" and Josh said he didn't know. To me he seemed a little suspicious when he said that, he had a smile on his face ;-P.

Leo could appear to Greenlee in a dream from heaven.

"It's ok Greenlee. Be with Ryan. I've found my soulmate in heaven"

*Click click click* Her heels go as she walks into the dream. She turns around, and we see that Ryan's heavenly soulmate is played by none other than....Sabine. Singh.

He was SOOOO suspicious. And he's SOOOO coming back.

Just listened to the most recent Daytime Confidential podcast.

Jamey reports that his sources are saying AMC has indeed approached Josh Duhamel (as well as Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos) about returning.

He also said (and I couldn't tell if he was serious at this point or engaging in his usual AMC-basing) that he is hearing that the returns (Dixie and Leo I assume) will be explained via the predictable David-saved-them-and-has-been-hiding-them-all-this-time route.

I know Lorraine and Agnes love David but, unfortunately, I don't think it's impossible that they would sacrifice him in order to be able to achieve other ends they deem worth it.

I don't know that I buy the whole David saving them thing. Especially with Leo. Dixie I could buy. But this is Leo, if he could save Greenlee from Ryan with Leo, he'd have done it years ago.

What I think is more likely, or I HOPE is more likely, especially since David is involved in the Jane stuff, is that Vanessa is revealed to be the ultimate mastermind behind Jane, Dixie, maybe even Zach with the final revelation being that Leo is alive somewhere. Even if Greenlee and David don't get to see him.

I don't trust LB, I've made no secret of that. But I think/hope that Agnes Nixon is smarter than to think all of this can be pinned on David with no one going, WTF.

I'm not buying this. The idea that David would've saved, fallen in love with and married Greenlee while keeping Leo somewhere is wretched. I still don't think JD can or would make the kind of time committment necessary for a "Leo back from the dead" story. They just don't have the time. I'm chalking it up to Jamey's usual bashing.

Nice, go Josh. :) I also kinda figured they approached Kelly and Mark. Hope they do come back alongside David and Julia. I'm very impressed with what AMC is doing so far for the end of their show and in such short a time. Let's hope OLTL can impress me as much.

Yeah, I hope David doesn't get thrown under the bus for this. Knowing Agnes and Lorraine, even if he is responsible, I'm sure they can color him with the shade of grey that he's always been.

I keep telling myself that there's a reason, and NOT a bad/villianess one, that David is involved in the Jane storyline. I have to believe, at least for now...that it's to usher in an umbrella that could likely lead to hints that Leo is alive. Otherwise, UGH. If he is a "bad" guy and helps Jane, then yes, I absolutely think that AMC will dump Dixie, Zach, Leo and whoever else they can on him. BAH.

I think Kelly and Mark are an absolute given. Lord knows he ain't doin nuffin. I am with 'Liney that that notion about David (Greenlee/Leo)is pretty wretched, and I'm not bothered so much by so-called David bashing as much as I am by the fact that it just doesn't jive (and it's a little too DOOL). Vanessa otoh makes all types of twisted sense... then again, David has faked his own death and we don't know what kinds of retconned off-camera squabbles they may drum up (David to Leo: Well you're gonna stay dead and I'm gonna [[email protected]#$%^&*] your wife! :angry: ) or the even more shocking revelation that David and his mother are demi-reconciled and actually doing each others' bidding. :wacko:

Lets be frank here. IF David helps Jane keep Erica hostage, character is done. He won't make it til September. Another character would kill him or they'd put him in jail and throw away the key. If he kept Dixie alive all this time and away from her family...he's pretty much done as well. Unless she's been mortally ill and unable to be anything other than a vegetable for the last five years. Because other than that, he's just been keeping her away to be an ass. I see the same fate for the character; death or jail. If he kept Leo from Greenlee, I think that would be the worst betraysl of them all and I couldn't see him lasting the last three months.

So yes, if he's the bad guy in any of these, the character is done before September.

Now, if he figures out who Jane is, and that Erica is in trouble...then stumbles onto the Dixie secret, ultimately to find out that all this time it's been Vanessa...we have one hell of a final arc. And IMO, the perfect full circle for the character. This could open the door for Leo as well, one last little moment, where we see Leo alive, struggling to get free/back to PV...something so we know he's out there. It's perfect. I feel like David can be part of all of these and still have a good, end.

I'm really hoping it's Vanessa now. I wasn't on board with the idea when Kylie first brought it up but the more I think about it, the more I think it would be a wonderful way to pull all this together. Vanessa/Proteus is the one person who had the money,insanity and potential motivations to fund Jane's makeover, become one of Zach's murdering casino partners and hide Dixie and Leo. Her return would give David a chance to redeem himself and be something other than Pine Valley's version of The Joker. It would explain where Jane's funding comes from, why someone would bother faking Dixie's death (sort of) and why IF Leo is alive nobody knew. Throw in an old connection to Mayor Blanco just for fun and Vanessa would be the type of over-arching uber villain that would make a pretty nice umbrella story.

All, every single one of David's issues comes from Vanessa...I just think the idea that the characters final arc would be to stop her, save the people he cares about, really prove that there is good in there...would be a conclusion that all David fans/supporters could live with. And if it gave us the hint that Leo was alive, and that one day he'd get back to Greenlee, well hell, Rylee ending up together would be SO much more palatable.

Unless AMC truly wants VI gone before September, I can't imagine him being the bad guy in this stuff.

ETA: For what it's worth, LB created Vanessa and Agnes Nixon wrote the David/Erica basement scenes where David's childhood/trauma with Vanessa was revealed for the first time. If anyone could and would connect this back to Vanessa, IMO, it would be the two of them.
