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.

At the PCPD, Anna and Dante question Carlos about the murder. He drinks water. The cops badger him but he refuses to talk without his lawyer. Anna takes his water bottle and walks out with the detective. She tells Dante that they've got Carlos right where they want him and drop the bottle into an evidence bag. They'll get his DNA off it. Dante fills her in on what Obrecht told him. She wonders what he'll decide to do.
At the station, Dante tells Michael the weapons dealer ID’d a potential subject and shows him a picture of Carlos. Michael tells them Carlos was just asking him about AJ and the investigation. Michael suggests Ava and Julian were in on it all the time since Carlos works for them. Anna and Dante head out when they get a tip that Carlos’ car is at Ava’s gallery.
At the gallery, Carlos tells Ava there’s no way the gun can be traced back to him. He wonders if Ava has lied to him about shooting AJ but she promises him she didn’t do it. He points out AJ was the only one who could ID her as Connie’s shooter – except him. Ava asks Carlos if he’ll give her up. Meanwhile, Jordan tells Julian she knows all about the drug operation and wants in. She knows when and where the shipment came in and that it’s already in the hands of his dealers. She has expertise in distribution and isn’t sloppy like his people. Her reputation is stellar. He thinks she’s wearing a wire for Anna. Anna enters just then with Dante but she’s looking for Carlos. Carlos and Ava turn the corner. Carlos resists and Anna arrests him for attacking an officer. Julian stops Ava from following and demands to know what she’s hiding. Ava apologizes to Jordan and excuses herself to call a lawyer for Carlos. Julian comments how poised Jordan was during the raid but wants her to prove she isn’t wearing a wire. She slowly unbuttons her top. “Are you satisfied with what I am showing you or do you need a more thorough search?” she taunts before walking out.
Back at the station Michael screams at Carlos until he’s taken into interrogation. Anna scolds Michael for his temper tantrums and asks him to let them do their job. In the interrogation room Carlos says he knows nothing about AJ’s shooting. Dante brings out Carlos’ gun and tells him his dealer sold him out. Carlos asks for his lawyer and Dante suggests he talk right now. Outside, Ava gets a call from Sonny – he needs her help.
