    I was hoping for his return to General Hospital, Now lets get Sarah brown, She has been let go from Days to, They were both wasted in Salem.

  • I’ve been tuning in to Days and I have been impressed with Ian’s brief run as McCallister. I think he could make a perfect substitute villian for Cesar Liason; the man who is supposedly behind Robin’s “recovery”, as well as someone obsessed with Anna. I look forward to the next episodes of GH and Days.

      It’s been a long time since Duke was on GH, and I can’t remember if Anna had been married to him at one time. Was she?
