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.

In the interrogation room, Anna's eager for Sonny to confess taking a hit out on Franco. She baits him with the PCPD's evidence and clues until Sonny throws a chair screaming, "It wasn't me." He wants to go be with Olivia. Anna's unable to rattle him and lets him go. She receives a call from Alexis and lets her know Sonny was released but doesn't have any answers for her regarding a shooter. Shawn arrives for questioning as she gets off the phone. Anna already has him pegged as the shooter since he has the skills. He reminds her that the shooter missed. Anna takes advantage of the situation and asks how it felt to watch the bullet hit Olivia. She reminds him he made things right for TJ after his friendly fire incident and asks how he will make it right for Olivia. She wants him to confess and make amends. Shawn has nothing else to say if she's not going to charge him. As he leaves, Anna tells him not to leave town.
At the Metro Court, Dante gets off the phone knowing Olivia is stable and needs surgery. Anna produces an evidence bag with the shell and lets Dante know they'll get the guy. He leaves for the hospital. In the restaurant, Carly reminds Franco there's been a shooting and lies about talking to security. He remembers, adding he knows who's responsible. Carly asks if he meant her. He agrees it's her hotel, she's libel, but he wonders what she thought he meant. Carly argues she's not responsible for the actions of everyone that walks into the hotel. Franco only cares about the one she hired to kill him. He lays it out like he sees it, from the point where Carly dragged him from the Quartermaine's to the terrace at the Metro Court. Carly calls him a conspiracy theorist. Franco wonders if they should ask Anna if she'd think the same when she gets off the elevator and approaches them. She wonders why she's just the person Franco wants to see and he feigns an interest in Olivia's condition since Carly is worried about her star employee. Anna goes to investigate on the terrace. Franco apologizes to Carly for all the hurt he has caused and tells her he is not the same guy. On the terrace a waiter tells Anna where Carly and Franco were seated. She sits in Franco's seat and looks up to the balcony where the shooter was.
At GH, Alexis wonders why Shawn is so popular and thinks he has more business with Sonny. Shawn lies, saying it was TJ worrying about Molly. She apologizes, she hasn't been thinking of the kids. He reminds her they agreed not to meddle in their lives. Alexis wants Shawn to check on TJ and he leaves. Molly arrives worrying about Danny. When she goes to get food, Alexis receives a call from TJ looking for Shawn. She's surprised Shawn's not with him and finds out TJ didn't talk to Shawn earlier. When Molly returns Alexis suggests Molly should still go to the prom with Rafe. Connie interrupts Sonny's heartfelt confession to Olivia in the exam room about needing her in his life. She doesn't want Olivia to waste strength and asks Sonny who did this to Olivia. He promises to find out and take care of it. Connie gives Olivia a pep talk about pulling through after Sonny leaves. Dante comes in and agrees she's going to make it. Quietly, Connie tells Dante what happened at the Metro Court before he spends time at Olivia's bedside. Sonny runs into Shawn in the hall looking for an update on Olivia. Shawn looks nervous when Sonny wants to talk to him. Sonny explains Olivia was shot, and Shawn interrupts to find out how she's doing. He then apologizes for not being able to get a clear shot. Sonny's angry and says, "What the hell are you talking about?" He's infuriated to learn Carly called Shawn saying the hit was back on. Shawn doesn't know what to say. Sonny wants him to say nothing and plans on talking to Carly himself. After they take Olivia to surgery, Dante asks Sonny if he was the intended target that resulted in his mom getting shot. Anna arrives and interrupts asking if Sonny knows anything about Franco being the intended target. Nearby, Alexis asks Molly to visit Sam when they run into Shawn. She wonders how TJ is doing and listens to Shawn tell another lie. Alexis calls him out as a liar and leaves to go see her daughter.
