Okay, I told everyone there was no vampires storyline. Maybe not, but there are certainly things happening as a result of Lucy's precarious mental state...involving vampires.
Port Charles actress Erin Hershey Presley, who also appeared on General Hospital at one point, will return as Alison Barrington.
Alison had sex with Caleb Morley toward the end of the Port Charles series. The result of this union may have been a child named Rafe (or a character named Rafe actually is the father, it's one of those who's the daddy things), to be played by Jimmy Deshler. Deshler debuts January 30.
According to ABC, Alison agrees with Lucy that John McBain is Caleb. This supposition puts her in danger. The plot will involve a murder, and an important character will be blamed.
I have to trust that the writers know what they're doing. I also have to assume that if you were not a fan of Port Charles or if by chance you don't remember every little bit of it, you can still follow this story.
