Last week saw the return of Anna Devane Scorpio Lavery Scorpio Hayward to 'General Hospital' after a stint as the police chief in Pine Valley ('All My Children'). She literally dropped in on her family and friends via parachute.
'General Hospital' has been racking up a few returnees this past year with not only Anna Devane, but also her husband Robert Scorpio, his ex-wife Holly Sutton Scorpio, and Dr. Noah Drake.
But 'GH' doesn't have a lock on the comeback market. 'Days Of Our Lives' alumni Patch and Kayla will be coming back to Salem this summer. (Patch on June 9th, and Kayla on June 12th.)
Primetime had a couple of notable returnees this past month. Although in the case of Sam Seaborn on 'The West Wing', Josh Lyman had to go out to "The OC" (the area, not the show) to drag him back to the Beltway.
But the big Comeback news so far this year, and probably with a lock on the Toobit award for Best Return come the end of the year - Sarah Jane Smith on 'Doctor Who'. I'll have more on that when I get around to making the crossover for the episode "School Reunion".
