AMC history.
As current events show, Dr. David Hayward has no problem manipulating others to get what he wants. One area in which he excels at this is in his relationship with women. One woman in particular who he had a history with was Dixie Martin. From 1998 to 2002, he had saved her life and tried to come between her and Tad. His fixation on her only strengthened his hatred for the Martins. He used anything at his disposal to influence Dixie, including drugs to involve Tad in a one-night-stand to break them up. In the end, he failed, and she was done with him.
