HomeTVAll My ChildrenBREAKING NEWS: Cady McClain Returns To AMC as Angel Dixie! Jamey Giddens March 21, 2008 All My Children 18 Comments SoapNet has confirmed that Cady McClain is once again returning to All My Children this time as an angelic version of her signature character Dixie Cooney Martin. Angel Dixie will lead her true love Tad to the truth that Julie Keefer’s adopted daughter Kathy is really Tad and Dixie’s daughter Kate. I’m not sure what to make of this. I would much rather have seen them bring Dixie back from the dead again than basically solidfy that the character is dead by having her be otherworldy. What do you think? 18 Responses daisyclover1938 March 21, 2008 I think they’re crazy if they bring her back as an Angel or a Spirit. They need to undo the travesty that was Dixie’s Death by Pancakes. This still doesn’t mean she’s dead of course…I mean fans saw Jesse’s “ghost” and on GL we saw a Reva apparition when she was supposedly dead but not really (I love soaps, lol!) Well, if they do this, I’d like to see it played out like this: Spirit Dixie guides Tad to their daughter. Then cut to Real Dixie, lying in a coma. We see her Spirit jump back into her body and glimpse Dixie’s eyelids fluttering…leaving open the possibility for her to return Log in to Reply Jamie March 21, 2008 I think it’s time ABC stops making ghosts out of its dead characters. In recent months, GH’s Alan and Emily have lingered after their characters’ deaths, and now Dixie will too join the club (Y&R is also guilty of it with John). The problem is, we fans would much rather see our characters alive and well rather than be reminded of the injustices as a result their deaths in the first place. Way to go ABC, keep reminding us that you continually kill off the “legacy” characters as you like to call them, only to bring them back in the irrelevant from of a spirit or ghost. People shouldn’t have to die to get a story! If Cady is returning, Dixie should be alive, perhaps hidden and in the care of Palmer, Del and/or Di, where she’s been (sorry ATWT) lingering in a coma all these months. If “Angel Dixie” were to lead Tad in to finding real Dixie, I’d be okay with that. But brining Cady back only to reunite Tad and Kathy while Dixie remains dead is a slap in the face to fans IMO. Log in to Reply Luke Kerr March 21, 2008 Not for nothing, but this is seriously messed up. Her death by pancakes is becoming as notorious as Frankie’s death on AW among others. Bringing her back as a spirit isn’t going to undo what they’ve done. They have to bring her back alive and "well" in order to undo it. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 March 21, 2008 Yeah Jamey G, we are strangely in tune on all things soap! But I’m a Libra I remember when Reva appeared to Josh and Annie…at the time I thought, “NO! That means Reva’s dead!!” How foolish of me, LOL! Jamie: ITA!! When I see beloved characters as ghosts/spirits/brain tumor hallucinations I get the initial thrill of seeing them again, but that wears of quickly and I end up just getting pissed all over again. Log in to Reply Teleia21 March 22, 2008 Amen everyone. I too will end my boycott of AMC only if they bring Dixie back alive. I am so sick of ghosts. Come on AMC!!! Do the right thing! Bring Dixie back ALIVE!!! Log in to Reply loveliason65 March 22, 2008 Bring Dixie back and I end my boycott of AMC. I stopped watching because of the poisoned pancake and I promise I’ll come back as full time viewer if they bring her back, alive and well. Log in to Reply HarleyFanForever23 March 22, 2008 Well, I’m glad it’s the next step for Tad finding his daughter, but this isn’t the way to unwrong Dixie’s ridiculous death. We want her back alive! I want to see her and Tad reunite with Kate together! —Katie Gus & Harley lover! Log in to Reply THEBEST March 22, 2008 I H.A.T.E. this!!!! Dixie has to come back alive. AMC is horrible @ trying to give the fans what they want! I know that they already have a back from the dead story with Jesse, but they could have still found an innovative way to bring back Dixie alive & well. We, the fans, have to fight this. Please call the ABC comment line @ 1-818-460-7477x2x4x255. Tell them how we want Dixie Cooney Martin back A.L.I.V.E!!!! Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville March 22, 2008 I don’t even watch AMC and I agree with you that her death should be undone! I did tune in to watch death by pancakes because, well, who wouldn’t watch that! I’m surprised CM is going along for that ride at all. It’s not a permanent job and I truly feel that she’s repeatedly gotten the shaft from both AMC and ATWT. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 March 22, 2008 ITA Mike, CM has been treated badly by AMC and ATWT (horribly botched returns on both shows). Af far as her reasoning behind taking this Ghost gig…It could partially be a strategic move…she’s got to know that this return is going to be huge with the fans and they’re going to be demanding her permanent return. Sure, fans have always wanted her back alive and well, but having her pop up briefly will just intensify their feelings. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 March 23, 2008 Wow, Cady as Jennifer Horton. I would have never come up with that, but I could actually see that. Not only could Cady handle the role, but fans would be accepting of that recast because 1)they know Melissa Reeves decision to leave (as opposed to being forced out) 2)people want Jenn and Jack back and 3)CM is talented and incredibly likeable. Plus she’ll bring her own fan base over to DAYS. Okay Jay, you know so much about soaps, maybe you can explain this to me. Why does DAYS keep getting rid of Matthew Ashford/Jack D.?? The actor/character is such a fan fav, yet hasn’t he been fired something like 3 times?? What’s the deal? Is the actor too expensive, is he a pain in the butt?? I just don’t get it. Come to think about it, his other soap gigs (GH, OLTL) haven’t lasted that long either. I’ve always wondered what the problem is. Log in to Reply THEBEST March 23, 2008 I have called that comment line 4 times already. Cady will be back PERMANENTLY if I have anything to say about it. Log in to Reply Bonbon413 March 24, 2008 I agree with Jamie! The “Ghost” story line has to stop on ALL shows!!! Bring back Dixie alive. She is a beloved character that should have NEVER been let go! It can make an interesting story line with her Tad & Chrystal (but I guess Chrystal can always go back to Adam!!). Log in to Reply THEBEST March 24, 2008 It just kills me how they think that Angel Dixie will undo all of the crap that’s gone on. They need to be cleaning house and undoing the bad like Y&R is. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 21, 2008 EXACTLY!!!! I swear you are my twin sister separarated at birth! LOL Are you a Cancer? I am serious, I was thinking the exact same thing! Reva’s ghost appearing was explained away by saying her spirit was floating away from her body while comatose! Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 21, 2008 I agree Luke! AW tried this same crap, first by bringing Alice Barrett back as a Frankie lookalike then as Frankie’s ghost. Hated it. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 22, 2008 Days should bring on Cady as Jennifer Horton and bring back Matt Ashford. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 23, 2008 James Reilly started it, He allegedly didn’t take a liking to Matt’s witty, ascerbic take on Jake, so he got rid of him and turned Jack into one of his cookie cutter himbos with one recast after another. Newer fans have know connection to the greatness of Jack and Jenn back in the 90’s. When JER came bame back during his last stint he hacked away at the character’s integrity by killing him off, TWICE, so when Missy Reeves finally had enough and picked up the family to move to Nashville, the soap decided to give Jack and Jenn fans a happy ending at least.
