Paul Williams: Paul not only had his heart broken by Nikki, but dealt with the devastating knowledge that his sister Patty was back in town and had hurt many people.
Katherine Chancellor: Katherine took her life back in 2009 after it was assumed she had died. Also, she fell in love with Patrick Murphy, and discovered the truth about her relationship with Jill.
