    What possible interesting storyline could she bring? IMO she was always a weak character (a victim). We need strong decisive women.

    I'd love to see the Abbott family together on the canvas again!

    I like when she played the "fat chick" years ago. Is everyone in GC perfect, slim and beautiful? How about a little reality! They even did away with Paul's assistant who did not like her nose or the one before who had a limp. Not everyone is this world is GC material!!!!

    It would be nice to see her return with a meaningful storyline of course and possibly a love interest.

    I hope that Beth Maitland returns to Y and R soon. She is my favorite Abbott. My favorite storyline she was involved in was when her and Brad Carlton got married. They were such an unlikely couple. Now that both of their charcters have matured I hope they get back together,so that Colleen can have her parents back together and we can see Brad with a caring,loving person.

    Traci has always been one of my favorite characters. Her warm heart is what makes her so special as an Abbott. She is the good girl that loves family and tries to keep them grounded. She looks up to her older siblings faults and all. She is like everyone's best friend. Only Beth Maitland can play the part of Traci Abbott in my opinion. I would love to see her come back full time, its time to fill that abbott mansion again with real abbotts!!

    I would love if Traci would come back for good and get together with someone like adam newman

    I was surprised to see how much she has aged. They should bring her back to spice up the Abbott storylines, since Ashley is coming back and Billy just arrived too.
