Craig Montgomery was a kindhearted young lad who always had bad luck when it came to women. However, he went about love the wrong way, which only hurt him. It started when he fell in love with Betsy Stewart. They both attended Oakdale University and met frequently. Unfortunately, Betsy had feelings for Steve Andropolous. Craig didn't stand a chance with Betsy as long as Steve was around. His first mistake in love happened when he tried to get Steve out of the picture by attempting to kill him. Craig set up Steve's truck to explode when Steve got near it, but the plan was ruined when Betsy happened to show up instead. Without thinking of endangering his own life, Craig quickly rushed to save Betsy. Craig stopped her from getting hurt, but he was injured and suffered impotence and sterility.
Craig was determined to get Steve out of their lives, but it never happened. He tried everything from setting Steve up to get caught with stolen coins to faking a fall and being paralyzed so that Betsy would stay with him and take care of him. After several showdowns with Steve, Betsy eventually left Craig for Steve. After a few words from his mother, Lyla, on his behavior, Craig finally realized the mistake that he made. When he fell in love, he lost his mind.
Craig later met and married Sierra Estaban Reyes while working for Lucinda Walsh. Lucinda hired him to sneak into another country and rescue her. Her father had been killed and Lucinda was afraid that she would be next. Craig's rescue didn't take too long when the first person he approached was Sierra, dressed as a boy. After dodging bullets, the two made it back to the United States. They fell in love after a while, but it all fell apart when Sierra learned that Lucinda was her biological mother. She also found out that Craig knew about the secret and didn't tell her. A revengeful Sierra married Tonio Reyes. They were very unhappy, and Sierra quickly realized that she had made a horrible mistake. She was secretly seeing Craig to confide in, and when Tonio found out about it, he threatened to hurt Craig if she didn't stop. When Sierra went over to tell Craig that she could no longer see him, the two were caught up in the moment and they made love. Sierra soon found that she was pregnant. She and Tonio had broken apart and eventually Craig and Sierra found each other again. Craig soon learned that Sierra's little boy was his and they married. Later on, they had a daughter, Lucy. They were married for a long time, but Craig couldn't stay tied down and moved on. He was going to go around the world. Bryant had come to Oakdale, and the relationship that Craig had with his son was very rocky. Craig found himself financially unstable and stole his son's trust fund. This caused tension between Craig and his son. Tragically, Bryant was killed in a terrible car crash.
Craig found himself falling in love with Carly Tenney Snyder, who designed a great clothing line. Unfortunately, she was in love with another man. Once Craig did win her over, she was kidnapped and sent overseas in a coffin. Craig vowed to find her and when he did, she was given injections that aged her. When Craig couldn't bare to look at Carly, he fell in love with her half-sister, Rosanna. Rosanna and Craig wanted a child but Rosanna could not carry a child, so they had to adopt. They found an unwed mother, Gwen Norbeck, who was going to put her child up for adoption. They won her trust and she agreed to turn her baby over to them. Craig had a one-night stand with Jennifer Munson. She got pregnant with Craig's child, but vowed that Craig would not have any rights to the baby. Gwen's baby, and Jennifer's baby, was born the same night. Craig switched the babies and told Jennifer that her baby had died, but actually, it was Gwen's baby that had died. Craig thought if he could switch the babies and let Jen think that her baby had died, they would adopt Gwen's baby, which would actually be his own son. In order to make his plan successful, he had to stop Rosanna from going to the hospital. On her way to see the baby, Craig ran her off the road, which caused her to go into a coma.
After all the heartache that Craig has endured over the years, he now leads a lonely life, and even his daughter, Lucy has turned against him. He realizes that if he wants anything in life, he will have to get it himself, no matter what the cost.
Craig returned to Oakdale determined to get custody of Johnny, his son by Jennifer. Unwilling to let that happen, Lucy left town with Johnny and didn't tell anyone where she was going.
Craig soon turned his attentions to getting Worldwide back; he convinced Meg Snyder to marry him. She and Paul Ryan, who she was dating, agreed to the plan because they wanted to double cross him. It didn't work. Once Craig had married Meg, he whisked her off to Canada for a honeymoon. Paul followed and fought with Craig; he fell off a cliff and was presumed dead.
Meg remained married to Craig because he promised to keep searching for Paul. Soon Meg began to fall for Craig but then Paul returned to town - with newly awakened Rosanna in tow! Rosanna saw what Craig was doing and, because she wanted Paul, she entered into an agreement with Craig to keep them separated. Meg soon learned she was pregnant; Rosanna changed the paternity test results so that Craig was shown to be the father. She enlisted Eli's help to do it. When he suddenly left town, Meg became suspicious and had another test done. This time it was determined that Paul was the father. He and Craig fought and Meg was hit; she lost the baby. Meg left Craig and, unable to take the stress of losing Paul, Rosanna went back into the coma.
Determined not to lose, Craig set a car bomb in Paul's car and then left town.

Craig, meanwhile, is on his jet on the way to the Cayman Islands! He toasts to his perfect plan and then removes his wedding ring. He calls Margo and she tells him to turn himself in. Craig says no way and then asks if Paul is dead. He's annoyed to learn that Paul is still alive and kicking and tells Margo that he tried to blow Paul up because Paul has been torturing him for months. "I feel completely justified," he says and then says she'll never find him. He hangs up.
Craig surprises Paul at Worldwide. He asks if Lucinda knew about Paul's plan and then makes a comment about Meg. Paul warns Craig to stay away from Meg but Craig says he could never hurt the woman he loves. He leaves and goes to the police department where he asks Margo to have Lucinda arrested! He tells her about the conspiracy between Evan and Lucinda; Margo asks for proof but Craig has none. Just then Holden walks in and demands that Margo arrest Craig! Holden tells Margo that Craig is stalking Meg by sending her flowers; Margo tells Holden that sending flowers isn't a crime. But, she tells Craig to stop bugging his nearly-ex-wife. Holden slams out of the building. Margo asks what Craig is trying to pull. He turns back to the Lucinda subject and tells Margo to get the Keystone Cops of Oakdale to pull Lucinda's phone records. Margo refuses. Craig leaves, telling her that he will take things into his own hands! "I'm going to do what I need to do. Have a good life," he says and leaves!
Paul meets Lucinda at The Lakeview and warns her that Craig is working on some kind of revenge. Lucinda says Craig can't prove anything as long as they all stick with their stories. Paul is very worried, though, especially for Meg and leaves the hotel. He goes to the farm and makes Meg open the door. She tells Paul that she has nothing to fear from Craig; Paul says Meg may get hurt because Craig is coming after him! Paul sees the rose and becomes more upset when she refuses to let him protect her. "What did you do this time to incite Craig?" she asks. Paul tells her about his plot with Lucinda and Emily; Meg tells him to stop creating problems for her because it isn't going to help him win her back! "We are over," she hollers as Craig walks in the door! He tells Meg that he just came by to give her a flower. He hands over another rose with a note about surprises and then tells her good-bye. "I know when I'm not wanted. Have an amazing life - without him," Craig says and walks out of the kitchen. Paul tries again to get Meg to look to him for protection but she refuses. She tells him to be careful and then asks him to go. Holden returns home to tell Meg he managed to get the restraining order. She tells him about Craig's visit and says she is worried about him. Holden offers to get a restraining order against Paul, too!
Margo finds Lucinda at the hospital and asks once more about her connection to Evan. Lucinda reminds Margo of her past connections with the Walsh family and swears that she had no contact with Evan until he took her hostage. Lucinda asks why Craig is sticking his nose into police business; Margo admits that Craig has raised some questions but insists that she is only conducting official police business. Lucinda tells her to keep investigating and Margo leaves. A few minutes later Lucinda runs into Craig and asks how he knows about her connections to Evan Walsh IV! He admits he didn't know anything until just that second. He asks if Lily knows about Lucinda's connection and is happy that the news has caused a rift between the women. Craig makes a few veiled threats about upcoming deaths and wishes her well. Then says he is going to the airport and leaving town for good.
