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.

Anna is in her room sobbing over Duke's ashes when the ghost of Carlos comes calling. He'll always be dead but he'll never be gone. She yells at him to stop. Sloane snaps her out of it. She explains that she's been screaming at Carlos. She thinks that Rivera might have flipped on Julian if she hadn't gotten carried away. Anna doesn't think she can go on. He'll make sure she does. Carlos will just remain a permanent 'fugitive' and she'll remain free. He's already misdirected the search and no body will ever be found. Lomax bangs on the door. When Kyle lets her in, she explains that she's there to fire him.
Jake shows up at Sloane's. The commissioner says what happened to Hayden was too bad but they now have the opening they've been waiting for. "I quit," Jake says. Kyle thinks that's ridiculous and explains that Julian tried to save him. He's in the perfect position to stop this mob war. Jake refuses, even if it means he's going to prison. In her room, Anna has a nightmare about Carlos. He taunts her for killing him and having a guilty conscience. "You killed me because you wanted to," he sneers, telling her that Julian was the one to blame. She wakes up screaming. Sabrina drops by. She wants to know what happened to Carlos. His ghost returns to mock Anna. She claims that she found Carlos, but then trails off. As he looms over her, she lies and claims that he knocked her out and ran. The nurse apologizes for bringing Carlos to Port Charles. Once she leaves, Rivera tells Anna how much he's going to enjoy watching her cover up his murder. She clings to a photo of Duke.
