Legacy Characters That Need More Focus/Return To Their Respective Shows


Recommended Posts

I envisioned Marie returning when Frances was ailing to move into the Horton home and care for her mom. That could have led to Nick returning to live with his grandma. Marie could be involved with hospital and family stuff. She wouldn't have to be on all the time, just used enough to have a presence on the show.

There was never a commitment to the Hortons, even thought it seemed that actors like Lisa Trusel, Maree Cheatham and Jean Bruce Scott seemed happy enough to return from time to time.

Hope and Julie also had a half-brother/brother in Steve Olson, last played by a pre-Another World Stephen Schnetzer, all the way back in 1979! Then he apparently left town and...poof. The end. What's HE been up to for the past...I don't know, 41 YEARS?

 

Another Horton male just cast off. (Yes, he is an Olson, but his mom, Addie, was a Horton!)

 

Maybe a bit problematic with another Steve in Steve Johnson on canvas, but that seems a minor issue.

We've been going through his run on the show in the DAYS BTS thread, and...yeah, it seems he's still alive, and with plenty of potential. A brilliant troublemaker in that age bracket that could've acted as a corporate raider type for the new century once AW ended, but...another opportunity squandered.

And hell, just refer to him as Stephen, and you're fine!

At one point Julie mentioned her nephew Spencer, Steve's son so there was probably a plan to bring him on but the writers changed and he was forgotten.

 

On ATWT Doug Marland cleverly gave Don and Mary Hughes a daughter Christina but she was never used.

 

On GL Holly had a niece Emily who could have easily come on at some point.

Yes!  I wanted Emily to come back when her dad, Ken Norris, was back on the show.  I thought, depending on the casting, she would've made a great love interest for Rick Bauer.

I think it's mystifying that they never brought Bill back before killing him off. He would have been a great patriarch and would have been interesting with Maggie. They could have been the new Tom and Alice.

 

I would have wanted to try pairing Bill in a May/December relationship with Nicole, if only to see how Jennifer would respond to her nemesis becoming her stepmother, lol.

Two words: sex change.  I'm kidding.

A couple things from the cancelled soaps:

 

AW never brought back Ricky Matthews, which would have given Liz a lot more to do for sure. 
 

ATWT: The lost Hughes family members. Did John & Marion Hughes have any children? Also lost the lost Stewarts, with the Ward quadruplets never coming to Oakdale at all. Geez!

Vincent Irizarry could have easily been Stephen Olson instead of Deimos

True or they could have asked Stephen Schentzer to reprise the role
