Lucy Comes to the Attention of Port Charles
When Lucy arrived in Port Charles, she worked as a librarian. She came to prominence during the Jennifer Talbot murder trial. Kevin O'Connor was the chief suspect in the murder of Jennifer, the grandmother of his wife Terry. Jennifer had left half of her estate to Kevin. Kevin had an alibi. He was in the medical reference library at the time of the murder.
Lucy Coe was called to the stand as she was the only one who could confirm that Kevin had been at the library. Lucy made an excellent witness, not for the defense, but for the prosecution. She denied that Kevin had been in the library when the murder took place. However, the demure librarian had written an erotic poem to Kevin, which Frisco found. When the poem was read aloud in court, Lucy broke down and admitted she had wanted to get even with Kevin for marrying Terry, so she lied. Kevin had been in the library that day. He was found not guilty.
Charged with perjury, Lucy was ordered to serve her sentence doing community service. One day, Lucy, her hair was in its usual tight bun and wearing her tailored clothing, entered her home. She let down her hair to reveal long, lustrous tresses, removed her sweater and blouse, put on black stockings and spike heels, and turned into a sex goddess before our eyes! Her boyfriend arrived moments - Kevin! The whole courtroom thing had been a set-up so that Kevin was assured of going free.
Lucy would later write a tell-all book about the events of the murder and aftermath when Kevin was killed trying to murder his wife.
Lucy Coe - The Husbands and Lovers
Lucy then became the femme fatale of Port Charles, marrying or sleeping with just about every available man.
Lucky entered into an affair with Bobbie Spencer's husband Jake Meyer, became pregnant by him, but miscarried. Then she was introduced to Tony Jones and married him. She and Tony split up, and, dressed in the same red she wore to Lila's funeral, she married Alan Quartermaine. While she was married to Alan, she became involved with Scott Baldwin. However, she didn't stay with Scott long - once she and Alan split up, Lucy took off for New York with another man.
By the time Lucy got back to Port Charles, Scott was in love with Dominique Taub. Dominique was diagnosed with cancer and asked Lucy to be the surrogate mother for hers and Scott's child. Lucy gave birth to Serena during difficult circumstances - in a blizzard and stranded in a cabin. Scott wound up in trouble with the mob, took Serena, and left Port Charles, which devastated Lucy.
Helping Dominique had brought out the non-manipulative Lucy, but the manipulative Lucy soon returned when she became involved with Frank Smith's son, Damian Smith. She bet him that he could not seduce Bobbie Spencer, now married to one of Lucy's ex- husbands, Tony. This put the first dent in the Jones marriage, a dent made worse by the appearance of Carly Roberts, Bobbie's natural daughter, later on. When Lucy met Dr. Kevin Collins, a psychiatrist, she went back to the "good" Lucy who had given birth to Serena.
Kevin and Lucy found the course of their love bumpy. Lucy married sinister Rex Stanton, in order to keep tabs on Serena. Kevin then suffered a breakdown. When he was well, he and Lucy became engaged, and she learned that she was pregnant. However, she miscarried. Then, jealous of Scott Baldwin's girlfriend Eve because of her relationship with Serena, Lucy siphoned off the gas in Eve's car. The car was in a bad accident while Serena was in it; Serena suffered temporary blindness. Kevin found out and canceled the wedding.
Lucy Coe Finds a Baby
Lucy and Scott fell in love again and eventually married. On the night of one of the Nurses' Balls, Lucy found a baby girl, Christina. It turned out that Christina's mother was Julia Devlin, a terrible custody battle with Scott and Lucy ensued. Julie won visitation, which Lucy resented. Then Lucy learned that Scott had adopted Christina. Julie kidnapped Christina and left Port Charles. Lucy turned on Scott. The two divorced, though Serena has stayed in Lucy's life.
Lucy and Kevin Collins found their way back to one another and after their on-again, off-again romance of ten years, married. Once on the show Port Charles, they became involved with Kevin's daughter Livvie and vampires. Christina re-entered Lucy's life when Julie developed a terminal illness.
