Is this just a visit or is she back for good??
I really liked her on PC and then wanted her to land the co-host gig on the View. She was PC's leading lady .....was always surprised she didnt get picked up by another show!
I had always thought she would have made the ideal Babe on AMC after AH left the role or even Marissa.
If this is a short term gig.....maybe they can get her to go to AMC as Babe or even Jessica on OLTL if Bree or Erin T wont do it

Alison makes Felicia look like a member of MENSA. Erin Hershey is not a great actress...why do people think she is so wonderful. She is like a step above those Cinemax movies that used to come on in the 90s.

So they SORASed her son Rafe. Not a surprise. Looks a little big for a 10-11 year old. I wish original Rafe, Brian Gaskill, were on too.

Okay, she's beautiful. Kind of a Kristina Wagner in training (and I adore KW!)

I didn't see anything to not like about her. She's blonde and beautiful, so of course that's going to bring out the people who hate those attributes. I'm going to wait to see what she does over the next few weeks before passing judgment.

And I am not looking forward to this bootleg John Connor taking Molly away from TJ. I foresee Ron pulling the stuff he did on OLTL when he had that 40 year old Ford sibling swoop into town and take Todd's other daughter away from Matthew Buchanan.

Being brought back to be killed off? Zzzz murderer mystery starting soon and victim has ties to the. PortCharles series. Doubt they arr killing off lucy. Kevin or "Caleb" guess she is desperate for. money. I am also surprised I never seen her do another soap gig.

Erin is a gorgeous woman.

I really hated it when RC turned Matthew into a huge brat and paired Danni with the forty year old Nate Ford.

NO, that can't happen. We barely got to see Molly and TJ together!

LMAO that so many people are complaining about a story that hasnt even gotten off the ground yet. Cant we at least wait a week or two before we declare the acting awful, the concept absurd and the writing a failure. How can you judge what you've yet to really see unfold? I wonder sometimes if a big reason why the networks wanted out of soaps was that they would be finally free of dealing with soap fans that never seem to be happy no matter what is written.

Is GH now perfect - heck no. Do we see stories that strain credulity - YEP. Are some of the concepts and the execution thereof schlocky - sure. But folks SAID they wanted more hospital, and we are seeing more of the hospital. Folks SAID they wanted more elq and less mob, and we saw more of monica and tracy and the elq offices in the last month than we have seen in all of the last year of guza combines. Folks SAID they wanted more cast rotation and a lesser focus on just three character, and again we have seen more of monica not to mention epiphany and mac and felicia and spinelli and coleman etc etc etc than we have had in eons and we have alexis finally getting some, some strides in diversity (we have seen more sean, felix and tj, though thats not to say the show still doesnt have a long way to go) and more light scenes that use a variety of characters. Folks SAID they wanted the nurses ball, and that will be on screen too. Folks SAID they wanted couples to root for and I see more and more chatter with folks being pro tarly or pro carly/aj and mcbam and spellie vs. spixie than before. Given that Cartini have only had Im thinking about a year to accomplish all of that, I think they have earned just a little leeway - letting their vision play out before we criticize.

SOOOO....in that preview, we find out someone has died and Rafe Jr. is pointing the finger at McBain/Caleb...please don't tell me it's Allison....she can't come back just to die! Anyone know?

It makes since that they would bring her back, introduce her son, and then kill her off. It's the same way they introduced Starr last year.

Yes Donny I am pretty sure they are killing her off.

It's great that they brought her and her character back, but sucks they are killing her off. I actually did like the vampire stories on Port Charles.

Reading up on the background of Alison and Rafe on PC...it sounds like the paternity of Rafe Jr. was in question as to whether it was Rafe (the angel) or Caleb (the vampire).

Was the paternity issue ever resolved?

I'm not sure how you jumped to the conclusion that she's desperate for money. But not only is it mean, that's how nasty rumors start. We don't know her situation. And considering the fact that her husband is still getting pretty good work, I doubt she's desperate for anything. Who's to say she didn't decide to return to give her character closure? It's been done before. Charisma Carpenter is an example of this and it had nothing to do with being desperate for money.

It's been ages since I've seen Port Charles. But I don't think it was. I'd have to research it, but I think The Gift ended with a cliffhanger since they didn't know it was being cancelled.
