David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) is back! And he is TICKED OFF. His daughter, Babe (Amanda Baker), is dead and, as is David's style, he's blaming everyone. Most specifically, the Chandler family. I mean, can you blame him? The Chandler family were sort of terrible to her, what with trying to murder her and throw her in jail over the years. Setting up his evil lair at Wildwind (which, now that Julia is dead, is empty. We don't know where Del went), David's got a gun! But the question is … does he use it? Someone is shot this week, after all.
Also, Babe is buried this week. We love soap funerals, because someone always loses it. It's really cathartic to watch.
Exciting news! Tamara Braun, who many remember as Carly from "General Hospital" and Ava from "Days of Our Lives," comes to Pine Valley as Reese Williams, Bianca's partner. Reese arrives in town to meet her new daughter that Bianca gave birth to in the tornado. About time, Reese! Whatever, 12 episodes on "All My Children" is like one day. Which, if you do the math, means it's still like 1983 in Pine Valley.
