DC's 10 Best Soap Couples of 2011
No. 5: Tad and Dixie, All My Children
They say not even death, time, nor space can truly separate lovers destined to be together. All My Children’s Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight) and Dixie Cooney (Cady McClain) definitely proved that theory to be true, considering she’s come back from the dead twice, to his once!
In 2011, Dixie returned from the dead one last time, amid a borderline sci-fi plot that revealed her one-time lover, David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) had essentially started his own necromancy side hustle via the mysterious Project Orpheus. It may have been dastardly Dr. David who raised Dixie from the grave, but it was the eternal love she shared with Tad that raised millions of fans’ spirits as AMC headed for its final chapter, with Tad and Dixie right where they belonged—together forever. That is of course, unless their drunken son Adam Chandler, Jr. (Jacob Young) shot one of them in the head. Good thing David was at that party…
