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.

Jordan pops up in Anna's hotel room. Sloane confronts her about being an undercover agent. He wants to hear all about her meeting with Duke. She admits that she failed to get Duke to incriminate himself. They listen to her recording. Anna worries that Duke could be playing Jordan and she could be in more danger than ever. Sloane assures them that he will keep their secret. Once he exits, Anna promises to handle Sloane. They just need to get Duke's trust and make him pay for it. Downstairs, Franco and Nina sashay into the Metro Court dining room and order Olivia to give them a suite. She refuses so Franco threatens to expose the paternity of her child. He reminds 'Mama Celeste' of what she told him and admits he was faking his LSD trip. "Denying our request would be insane," Nina prompts. Liv is reluctant so Franco and Nina march over to Julian and Alexis at their table. They aren't welcome and Olivia ushers them away, promising them all they wanted. Julian's a bit perplexed so Franco offers his condolences for Ava. Liv takes Franco and Nina down the hall. They increase their demands.
Anna wires up Jordan in her room at the Metro Court. The undercover agent is nervous. Anna has to admit that Duke still means a lot to her but that doesn't matter anymore. Downstairs, Duke is going through his tea box in the dining room. It's missing his money. Julian shows up to wave it in his face. He's taking it as compensation. They bicker about who owns the docks. Duke thinks he's pathetic and motions his thugs over. Julian hands the cash over. Olivia bustles over to tell them to stop causing a disturbance. Once Julian departs, Jordan joins Duke at his table. They have some chamomile and she makes excuses for not taking Julian out. She prompts him to repeat his kill order. "Say the word," she prods. He doesn't and claims that his order was just a test. Meanwhile, Julian apologizes to Liv for trying to touch her baby. He's going to let it all go. Alexis shows up and sucks face with him. She tells them that Nina is free again and so is Franco. Liv admits she went to see him at Shadybrook. The lawyer wonders what that conversation was about. Later, Franco and Nina stroll in and request a suite from Olivia. She refuses so Franco threatens to tell Julian that she's carrying his baby. Back upstairs, Sloane shows up in Anna's room with a warrant. They bicker. He orders her to tell him who her informant is and demands to see her laptop. She adamantly refuses. He admits he doesn't even have a warrant. Bob already told him that Jordan is her informant. Anna claims that's nonsense. Jordan rushes in, babbling about what just happened downstairs.
