So outside of Carl & Gary thats probably why no other fan faves returned
maybe… i heard from a former soap journalist (and a huge aw fan) that goutman wanted to bring back beverlee mckenzie for the finale, but pgp said no.
figuring that pgp was still smarting from beverlee’s abrupt gl departure a few years earlier. always wondered if incident this played any role in goutman’s behavior when atwt sent off the air.
I think Kin and Nancy Frangione playing off of each other could have been fun. Would have strengthened an already talented cast. Doubt his arrival would have done much for the ratings at that point tho.
