    It's disgusting that Cole is returning. Hopefully only for Starr to divorce him and hasten to marry James!

    Loved Megan and Luna. I think OLTL writers were too easy to kill characters off instead of just send them out of town. I hate that all these great characters from the history of the show are dead and have to come back as ghosts.

    Love Brandon Buddy. I would love to see Hope and her dad have some father and daughter time. Starr will never forget Cole! James is definitely the rebound guy! I want Brandon to reprise the role of Cole before someone else snatches him!

    Cherryberry: She was one of the sweetest Southern belles to ever grace Llanview's presence. She was very New Agey and into crystals and all that sort of stuff. Hmmm....wonder if Madame Delphina will have something to do with her reimmergence!!! I can't say I remember much about her stoylines outside her ongoing romance with Max Holden. I know she had a radio show which caused her to have a stalker (named after a brand of'll come to me in a minute...Suede!) She also owned a spa in town. She had at least one kid, Al, with Max and I think a girl too. She also had a brother who became a cop. Which is why she ended up at the Youth Center at the wrong time and was shot. After her death Christian Vega made an angel statue in her honor, which is still featured pretty promonently on the show today (the one in Angel Square). She has returned as an angel a few times to her son and husband but hasn't been seen even in that capacity for a while.

    If you want to know more detail, you can read her bio at Wikipedia (

    I am glad Brandon Buddy cannot return. He was so dull in any role!!! I too would love to have a return of Max Holden before this show ends
