    Poor DOOL, hopefully they won’t inject her into every storyline like her former ABC bosses.

    I’m happy that Kassie is joining DOOL and i kind of sensed that it was the Eve she would be playing because there have been rumors the character was returning.Plus i’m wondering if Shane might be coming back now too.
