Anna previously came to Port Charles in 1985. She was immediately befriended by Holly Scorpio and landed a job working with Sean Donley, friend to Robert Scorpio. Unbeknownst to Holly, Anna was once an espionage partner with Robert... and his previous wife.
Although most of Anna's time spent in Port Charles dealt with law enforcement issues, she definitely had a few exciting moments of her own, like fencing pieces of the Aztec treasure with Sean, and falling in love with handsome Scot, Duke Lavery, who later died in her arms. Let's not forget that she dealt with daughter, Robin's, kidnapping, and faced the evil, Faison, who was the purported villain in the boat explosion death that killed both Anna and Robert.
In 2001, it was learned that Anna was still alive. She returned to All My Children paired with David Hayward, and gave birth to little Leora, who died before we had a chance to get to know her. The baby's death has been the propellant behind David's bitterness and his vendetta against Dr. Joe Martin in that series. When Anna lost the child and failed to garner a conviction in the Cambias' rape, she kissed David goodbye and disappeared from Pine Valley and the the soap scene.
Anna drops in on Robin and Patrick often, one time literally via parachute, when not on assignment with the World Service Bureau. In the summer of 2007, she was visiting Port Charles during the same time as international rocker Eli Love was in town for a concert. He landed in General Hospital in need of brain surgery and everyone marveled at how much he looked like Patrick's father, Dr. Noah Drake. Anna convinced Noah to perform the concert, as Eli Love. In the process, she and Noah had an affair, much to the disgust of Robin and Patrick. Once she went back to the business of being a spy, she had an affair with rocker Eli Love. During the summer of 2008, Anna visited Robin and supported her during her pregnancy. When Eli came to town and learned that his hot lover was about to become a grandmother, he ran scared. Noah Drake, however, was there to support Anna and their affair rekindled briefly. As Robin's pregnancy progressed, as did wedding plans with Patrick, Anna and Robin's father Robert came together once again.
Anna returned once again in 2012 as part of Patrick's Valentine's Day present to Robin.

Outside her hotel room, Anna takes a call from Robert and thanks him for sending his team. If anyone else was in the clinic she can’t imagine they survived. Furthermore, she’s sure they did the right thing about Faison, but feels like she’s lying to Duke every day, especially since he isn’t keeping anything from her anymore. She opens her door and finds Duke in a seemingly compromising position with Lucy on the couch. Lucy hopes Anna doesn't think anything inappropriate was going on and tells them it’s all Bobbie’s fault. Anna can’t believe they are still fighting over Scott and tells Lucy to make Scott choose right now. Determined, Lucy stomps off – after a long wiggly hug with Duke. Alone, Duke and Anna head for the bedroom. After sex, they sip martinis and he considers taking a bartending gig at the Floating Rib. Talk turns to Faison, and Duke’s glad he’s safely behind bars. Meanwhile, Bobbie visits Scott’s room to tell him about Franco’s party downstairs. He wants to know why she lied to Franco about their dinner together and thinks something fishy is going on. Lucy knocks and stomps in, demanding Scott pick one of them. She and Bobbie gang up and tell him to choose now or they are both walking away. Later, Lucy runs back into Anna’s room and throws herself onto Duke – Scott chose Bobbie! Back in Scott’s room, Bobbie and Scott kiss. Scott chose her because they’ve always had trust and honesty between them. Downstairs, Franco overhears Sonny tell Carly they belong together. After Sonny leaves Franco startles Carly and hopes he isn’t ruining any surprises. She lies about who she was talking to. Franco tells her Nina isn’t coming because she knows Carly is jealous of their friendship. Carly seems relieved and tells Franco she knows nothing is going on. “Like you and Sonny?” he questions. Kiki and Michael arrive and Franco tells Michael to run off with Carly to get some champagne. Alone, he asks Kiki if Carly slept with Sonny. She acts confused and he tells her Rosalie heard her talking about it and told Nina. He begs Kiki to be honest with him and she confirms Sonny and Carly did the deed. She only wanted to protect him and even kept it from Michael. Franco laughs – there’s something he’s been meaning to tell Michael. At the bar, Carly thanks Michael for coming. They hug and Bobbie and Scott join them all. Carly hands out wine and says a few words about how amazing and fascinating Franco is. She let him into her heart and can’t imagine life without him. She hopes on his special day he can see how much he means to her and the people in this room. Franco has a few words to say himself. Back upstairs, Robin pounds on Anna’s door.
At the clinic, Maxie and Nathan find Lulu and Dante and they all run off to find Anna before the building explodes. Meanwhile, Robin and Jason prepare to leave their room just as Anna is entering. Neither of their access cards works so Anna dashes off to look for a different card. She runs into Obrecht, who is frantic to find Nathan. The groups converge and Obrecht pulls Nathan into her arms. Anna gives her officers orders to clear the facility while they head to the main entrance. Nathan wants to know what happened to Victor. Anna tells him he’s dead but when he presses for details Obrecht urges them to get a move on. Inside their room, Jason works to unlock the door when it suddenly opens and Helena enters. She has her goons knock out Jason and Robin sarcastically congratulates her on her return from the dead. Helena strokes the embryo chamber and tells Robin that Stavros is dead but will live on, no thanks to Lulu. She tells Robin that Dante and her mother are here to rescue Maxie and Lulu, but the building is about to blow and the doors are sealed. Helena has the override card from Victor with access to all the back tunnels. Robin refuses to leave with Helena as Jason gets a gun, shoots Helena’s goons, then takes Robin and runs off. Helena calmly grabs the embryo and walks out. Meanwhile, the others realize the front door is locked so they all raise their guns and shoot the lock at the same time. It works and they escape and take cover just as the building explodes.
