Just read the great news that Chrishell Stause (Amanda Martin) agreed to remain in Pine Valley on a recurring basis.  I was hoping for this since All My Children is moving to California soon. 

Once Thorsten Kaye (Zach) leaves (or rather, when AMC leaves Kaye behind in NYC) there will be a hard-to-fill hole where Zach and Kendall (Alicia Minshew) used to be.

Now before Zendall fans start cussing me out, I’m not saying Amanda/Jake (Ricky Paull Goldin) will completely fill that void.  But since I care about this couple, for this fan it will help soften the blow.

I am also looking forward to Walt Willey’s (Jackson Montgomery) return.  It would’ve been dead wrong (no pun intended) to bring Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) back without her father.

Hopefully, the new head writer will find a place for Jack on the canvas sans Erica Kane (Susan Lucci).  Its been a long time since I felt Erica deserved Jackson anyway, and she’s pretty much emasculated him as it is. 

I say bring back Brooke English (Julia Barr) permanently after the 40th Anniversary show, and hook Jack up with her.  That in itself would drive Erica crazy, especially if (when?) Ryan (Cameron Mathison) reunites with Greens (blech!)

I’ve also heard rumblings that Greg Vaughan (ex-Lucky Spencer, GH) could come to AMC as the new Jamie Martin, and that would work for me.  I felt he got a raw deal when they replaced him with Jonathan Jackson (who originated the role) on General Hospital.  But I am partial to Justin Bruening since he’s so easy to look at (and already in California), so maybe AMC can lure him back.  Too bad they killed off Babe (originated by Bruening’s wife, Alexa Havins).  Hey!  Maybe Krystal had triplets? 🙂

Don’t forget to check out The View this Friday (Dec. 11) as they “Celebrate All My Children” for an entire episode before the big move West!  Scheduled to appear are: AMC creator Agnes Nixon, Susan Lucci, Debbi Morgan (Angie), Michael E. Knight (Tad), Cameron Mathison, Rebecca Budig, Vincent Irizarry (David) and a surprise guest.
