A face from the past.

In this week's Throwback Thursday Soaps.com takes readers back to the late 1990s when Macy Alexander was keeping a secret from her mother Sally Spectra…

Donna and Brooke may be keeping their sister Katie in the dark these days, and years ago Macy did the same with her mother. Adam Alexander returned to town many, many years after walking out on Sally and Macy. He visited Macy and was beyond emotional when Macy recognized him as her father.

Adam explained to Macy that he'd left their family all those years ago to protect her and Sally from men who he'd borrowed money from in order to save Spectra Fashions. When Adam was forced to testify against the men he feared they would hurt Macy and Sally and simply left town to prevent that from happening. Macy forgave her father and agreed not to tell Sally he was back. However, she couldn't stay quiet for long and convinced Adam to reveal himself. Sally was stunned, hurt and couldn't forgive him until months later.

Do you remember what name Adam returned to Los Angeles under? Vote below.
