Ross first came to Springfield, he was a lawyer whose job was to defend
Roger Thorpe when Holly charged him with rape.
Ross has had two major loves in his life, Vanessa Chamberlain and Blake
Thorpe. There were other wives and relationships, but those are the two
women to hime. They also gave him children. His marriage to Carrie Todd ended when it became apparent that she had multiple personality
His relationship with Blake
was rocky. At one point, she cheated on
him with Rick Bauer because she thought he had something going on with
Amanda Spaulding. She became pregnant, and at one time there was
speculation that one or both twins might not be Rossí.
After her indiscretion with Rick, Ross forgave his wife. Again she
cheated on him, this time with his brother. This relationship had an
interesting result. Ross walked in on his wife and brother and, thinking
Blake was under attack, picked up a gun to shoot his brother. He ended
up hitting Blake instead. He then left her. She left town for a short
while to work on her career as a romance novelist. Ultimately, Ross
tracked her down and found out she was pregnant with his daughter,
a caring father. He stood by his children, no matter what.
recently, he staged an intervention for his oldest child, Dinah. The two
have always been close, mainly because she blames her mother and not
her father for being given up for adoption.
In April of 2006, Ross was traveling home from Washington DC to see his
wife and to meet with Alan-Michael Spaulding when the plane crashed.
Ross' body was not found, however.
Ross had been
flying home with a young woman named Nicole, which led to brief
speculation that they were having an affair. However, she was
a private eye that he had hired to track down Phillip. He knew that
Phillip was alive. Phillip sabotaged Ross' plane so that he
could get away, expecting Ross to be delayed. Instead, Ross went up
in the damaged plane and that's why it crashed. Blake mourned
his death for a long time.
