Well, I would love to have Steve back because I want to know about this whole ISA thing that drove him and Kayla apart. But before he comes, it would be nice to see what Kayla's going through. We never see her life anymore. We only see her in her capacity as a doctor, and while that is preferable to her working in the pub, it's not very illuminating in terms of what her life is like now. If we can see everyone else's life so much, I fail to see why we can't see hers, too. She doesn't have to be a lead for us to see her interacting with Joey...to see some glimpse of the troubles she has in her life...the challenges she faces and her feelings about it all. I don't want to see her just talk about it. Show, don't tell. SHOW ME what she's doing, how she's doing.

It would mean a lot to me as a fan of hers.

And hey...seeing Steve back to interact with Adrienne would be great too! And Dimples. We haven't seen him with Dimples in years...and that could be fun.

Jack would be nice to have back.

So would Anna.
I agree... I can't see the Johnsons without Kayla as a very important part... She ran through all the threads of their stories, from being a rock for Adrienne when she came to town as a victim of abuse, of course the romance with Steve, and then her marriage with Jack being the catalyst for his dark turn and eventual redemption. I think revisiting that history is probably the most natural story the Johnsons have as a family. I could see Sonny involved as well. Who knows how much he knows about his other grandfather.

Steve also has a very young son, and with the broken history with his father and Stephanie there is huge potential there.

Franco Kelly. Let's pretend he faked his death or something. He can stalk Sami, randomly scaring the hell out of her. Everyone will think she's losing it and not take her seriously. She gets upset because nobody believes her. Elvis plans a surprise dinner to cheer her up. In the dark she mistakes him for Franco and stabs him with a fireplace poker, killing him. She pleads temporary insanity and is carted off to the looney bin for a good long rest and I can finally resume watching Days. :D

Alex Marshall. He was a great realistic villain in that everyone hated him, yet had to deal with him because he was a connected member of the community. He was pretty ruthless and greedy and lacking much conscience most of the time, but was never ridiculously so over-the-top that you can't believe he's not in jail or that he can walk freely around town among people he has terrorized for years (*cough*Stefano*cough*). I liked that, even when he'd be involved with women, they never tried to make a romantic hero out of him. He was a great presence in Salem, and his quips were the best. He'd have to be played by Quinn Redecker, though.
I agree, Alex was one of the best villains. It's time for him to be released from prison. The same goes for Peter Blake. I would also love to see Tony again.

I loved Franco but I wouldn't want him to return, because his murder was one of the better stories in the late 90s.

Oh good Gooood... I forgot Alex! Anna without Alex is good, but Anna WITH Alex is... GENIUS.

Vivian Alamain (early 1990's batshit crazy Vivian, not 2011 cartoon Vivian)
Susan Banks (we already have the actress, WHY hasn't this been done yet?!)
Celeste Perrault (Tanya Boyd ONLY)
Anna DiMera and Carrie Brady (SO much unexplored storyline potential)
Shawn Brady and Belle Black
Philip Kiriakis and Chloe Lane (NOT pathetic 2009-2013 version of Chloe)
Chelsea Brady (PERFECT option for Nick's redemption story, imo)
Fay Walker (whose death still makes absolutely no sense)
Craig and Nancy Wesley
Bill and Laura Horton (John Martin and Jamie Lyn Bauer ONLY)
Shane Donovan and Kimberly Brady

Dr Baker :wub2: I think I am the only person on this planet who wanted to see
Nighttime Hope hook up with Dr Baker. Loved all of his scenes with Nicole too.

Rolf and RoboJohn...because RoboJohn is way better than what we have now.

The real Vivian and Ivan from the 90's

I loved him with Nicole however, i never wanted him her in any romantic capacity. I just loved their adversarial relationship, their chemistry was amazing.

Bo Brady, although I'm intrigued to see where they'll take Hope in this new chapter of her life.
Anna DiMera
Carrie
Vivian Alamain
Shawn Brady (ANYONE but Brandon Beemer)
Chelsea Brady
Don Craig
Roman Brady (Wayne Northrop)

Ok, my favorite moment(s) with ......

Bo Brady ~ Supporting Marlena when Roman was "dead", and when she was jailed for shooting Stefano. Any scenes with Mrs. H. One of my MANY favorite Bope moments is when he puts his black glove on Hope's hand. This was way back in 1983 after he was recovering from being beaten by The Vipers, and when Hope took care of him. The chemistry is amazing to watch to this day!

I have to link some videos, lol. Will do that later.

I could make a really long list, but to be practical I will just have a top three:

1. Alex Marshall
2. Melissa Anderson
3. Dr. Neil Curtis

And, to those who know me, of course I would want theoretically want Linda Anderson back, but no Margaret Mason buts quite a damper on things, doesn't it?
