The last time she came back was for Shawn Sr.'s funeral and she primarily interacted with Peggy McCray, John Aniston, Mary Beth Evans, Stephen Nichols, Peter Reckell, Kristian Alfonzo, and Josh Taylor all of whom were there 20 years ago. So, I presume she was pretty much talking about all of them.
I do agree with her that there is a spark missing that was there 20 years ago, but I think that has a whole lot more to do with much better writing and the fact that they were all 20 years younger then. And, I certainly don't think it means that those who were still on the show (or had returned) were somehow selling their souls or forsaking their own happiness for a paycheck. From everything I've read or heard, MBE, SN, PR, and KA are very happy and active in their lives outside of Days. Maybe they don't get the degree of artistic fulfillment from Days that they did 20 years ago, but so what? I know she tried to backtrack at the end a bit, but it came across as awfully judgmental, IMO.
That said, she's entitled to her opinion and how she views choices made by other people. It does surpise me that she'd keep coming back feeling that way, however.
