Joe, the sexy ex-husband of Dylan's true love, Avery Bailey Clark (Jessica Collins), appears slated to be the new thorn in the hunky war vet-turned-plumber-turned-barista's life. It was recently revealed Joe is the front man for a mysterious development firm determined to buy up properties in Genoa City, Wisconsin, including the building currently housing Crimson Lights.

It's not all angst for our Mr. McAvoy. The year 2014 saw Dylan reunited with his biological parents, who just happen to be two of Genoa City's most beloved citizens, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Burton shot to soap opera fame during his over two-decade stint as WASP teen-turned-amnesiac assassin Jason Morgan on ABC Daytime's General Hospital. He joined the rival CBS soap in 2012.
