Yes! I'd forgotten to mention Linda & Mike! At the time (in what was rather controversial), Mike was concerned that he might be gay. Linda took young Mike to bed to prove to him that he wasn't (I think Mike might have actually lost his virginity to Linda). Meanwhile, Linda completely ignored the fact that she had a barely legal stud in her bed and pretended that Mike was really Mickey! I couldn't remember what had happened to Evan's wife (was she ever even seen on-screen?). I do know that Mickey began investigating Stefano as a result of Maggie's car accident which is what lead to Stefano tampering with the plan to South America that Mickey was on, causing it to crash. Stefano kept Mickey in a cage in the jungle for the better part of a year (on screen, even!) while all of Salem believed Mickey had been killed (the body found was actually the pilot). It was during this time that Maggie started dating Don Craig. Needless to say, Mickey's return caused problems. An interesting point with Evan (played by Lane Davies who went on to be Mason Capwell on Santa Barbara), he was romantically involved with Sandy Horton (daughter of Tommy) and he actually died on the operating table while she (a doctor) was operating on him. I think this lead to Martha Smith (who played Sandy at the time and would later co-star on Scarecrow & Mrs. King and had earlier appeared in the film Animal House) leaving the show (Sandy left to recover from Evan's death). When Sandy returned a year later, another actress was in the role.[/quote]
Yes, you're right about the circumstances of Mike & Linda's affair. Mike had been dating Trish Clayton but had been unable to get aroused with her so naturally, that had to mean that he was gay!
I don't remember ever seeing Evan's wife. I don't think Maggie knew the identity of the prospective parents at first. Neil was acting as the go between. I really hated it when they changed Sarah's paternity to Neil.
I had forgotten about the Evan/Sandy connection!
