Soap Opera Digest reports that we’ll be seeing a lot of returns of fan favorites when the show pens in Alice Horton’s passing. Expected for a return are Jaime Lyn Bauer (Laura Horton, on June 14), Christie Clark (Carrie Brady), Roark Critchlow (Mike Horton), Maree Cheatham (Marie Horton), Bryan Dattilo (Lucas Horton), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla Johnson), Patsy Pease (Kimberly Brady), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer Horton Devereaux, on June 9) and Lisa Trusel (Melissa Anderson), and John Martin, a recast of Bill Horton, who will arrive in Salem June 14.

As reported earlier in the year of Frances Reid’s passing, a show rep told us there would be a tribute to Alice Horton in the works before summer. We have since learned that fans should be prepared for this around June 12.
