In the series finale of "Passions" in August of 2008, we watched Tabitha relinquish her powers and confess all of her sins in order to save the great town of Harmony. It is still hard to imagine Harmony without Tabitha’s delicious tidbits of evil as she manipulates her neighbors through spells and potions.
When we revisit Harmony in 2011, we learn that Tabitha is forced to again seek redemption because she hasn’t stepped foot in the church since her baptism. She prays for the return of her powers when all of the children begin disappearing, including Endora. Tabitha realizes that evil has once again found its way into the heart of Harmony in the form of her nemesis, Hecuba (Robin Strasser, Ex-Dorian, "OLTL") who constantly babbles about stealing the Vicker Man away from the Senator. Tabitha realizes that she can only fight evil with evil so she summons her evil powers.
