The other night I could not sleep and my mind drifted to AMC. I realize
the storylines for the show are planned months in advance, but I think
that this could be an interesting one. I would really appreciate hearing
from as many of you as possible what you think of this idea.
It starts with a simple bringing back just one character. While it is
always great to get the originator of the role to return (I am not sure
if she is still on Y&R), this time a recast would be okay. The
character in question is Mia Saunders. For those of you who are not
familiar, she is Liza Colby’s half sister. Liza and she have the same
Anyway, the last time we saw Mia, she was being sent by Fusion to
work at the West Coast Office. If she were to return, a good reason
would be something regarding Fusion, she would be able to involve
herself with several front burner actors.
Liza – Mia's sister is now back in town. They had a good
relationship when she left, what would it be like now? Mia also has
a grown niece (Colby) to deal with, and a brand new baby nephew,
Stuart. Would Liza trust Mia with the secret about Stuart? Would Mia
go along with it, especially since it was Jake that set it up? (More
on Jake and Mia later). If Liza didn’t tell her, would Mia figure it
Frankie – AMC wants us all to forget that Frankie is already a
father. How will Jesse and Angie feel about finding out they have a
grandchild, who Mia put up for adoption, and Frankie knew about this
and never told them. Angie and Jesse relive how they felt and
went through when Angie put Frankie up for adoption and then the
trouble they had trying to get him back. Then there is Randi. How is
she going to feel about her husband’s ex-girlfriend and “Baby Mama”
showing up? How is she going to feel finding out Frankie has a son
that he never told her about, and especially now that she
miscarried? Perhaps Randi will be told she can not ever have
children. That would make things even worse.
Jake – Before Mia left town she and Jake (who was made Chief of
Staff at PV Hospital) were engaged. Jake had an affair, because he
felt neglected by Mia and all the time she was putting into Fusion.
Jake then returned at one point, and Mia thought he wanted to get
back together with her. However he was only home to introduce his
new wife. What kind of relationship will the two of them have now?
Then there is Amanda. How will she feel about Mia returning?
Kendall – If they are going try and revive Fusion, how will Mia
fit in to the plan, especially since Erica is now involved with the
company? Erica is not to thrilled about Liza, how will she feel
Mia – What has Mia’s life been like these last couple of years?
Will she have some skeletons in her closet upon her return? Is she
married? Is she with someone? Is she running away from someone?
Ryan and David – If memory serves me correctly she had some type
of relationship with both of them. Now that Ryan and David are
single again, could she become a love interest of one of them? How
will KWAK feel about Mia if she is with David, now that Tad is with
Like I said in the beginning, bringing back just one character could
produce a multitude of storylines. I would really like to hear from people what they
think of this idea.
