At last, ABC is confirming what Soaps In Depth has already told you: on the heels of ALL MY CHILDREN welcoming Cady McClain (Dixie) back for the soap’s final months, Thorsten Kaye (Zach) will be returning as well. But will the two fan favorites be alive and in the flesh, or just a ghostly figment of a loved one’s imagination?
In confirming the news today about the comeback of Kendall’s presumed-dead hubby, ABC promises that “this summer, fans will be riveted as Kaye returns to Pine Valley.” And as for JR’s mom, ABC’s announcement points out that Dixie was “seemingly murdered” in 2007 before she could be reunited with the daughter she gave away at birth. Could both of these beloved characters still be alive? The mystery will begin to unravel when McClain first appears on Tuesday, May 17. A first air date for Kaye has not yet been announced, but the network promises that “both Zach and Dixie’s returns will coincide with a summer filled with ‘fan favorite’ character appearances and heartfelt surprises.”
So what do you think, Soaps In Depth readers? Are Dixie and Zach alive? Weigh in below!
