head writer was certainly a step in the right direction. Her works is set to begin airing on June 27. And word has it that Agnes Nixon is working with Broderick on storyline for the finale, which pretty much guarantees it will be done right. Already some returns are in the works. Cady McClain (Dixie) is in talks with the show to return before the ending in September. Whether Dixie is alive or dead has not be specified.
Thorsten Kaye (Zach) has expressed interest in returning and finishing up the story right. Thorsten reported told SOD's Carolyn Hinsey, "I am very open to going back and finishing this up the right way. I would like to be there when the fat lady sings. I wasn't aware the fat lady was warming up, and frankly I think it's too soon for her to be singing, but here we are."
If the show has to end, my wish list for returns (other than Zach) is Brooke and Adam and Joe and Ruth.
