Past History

Cole arrived in Oakdale to work on his music career. His girlfriend, Sofie, got a job at The Lakeview and befriended Aaron Snyder. Aaron and Cole didn't get along. Cole abused Sofie emotionally and when he learned she was pregnant he convinced her to give up the baby. She agreed. Cole contacted a lawyer, who was also working with Barbara, and tried to sell the baby. Barbara agreed because she desperately wanted a baby for Will and Gwen. Sofie eventually learned the truth, thanks to Alison Stewart's interference, and the plan backfired. Cole disappeared from town.

He returned a few months later and began using Sofie again; this time because Sofie was working for Barbara and was good friends with Paul. Sofie was in love with Paul and Cole used her feelings against her. She became pregnant and accused Paul of raping her; the baby was Cole's. When he learned of this and that Sofie was holding out on the money she had he killed her and tried to frame Meg.

The truth came out and Cole took Barbara hostage, hoping to extort money from Paul. Paul and Meg found them just in time.
