The Storyline That Would Bring John Back!
With the return of Dina and more visits by Traci, Y& R fans have begun wondering if there’s a chance that John will pay the Abbotts another spectral visit. “I would love to come back, but only if it’s done right,” portrayer Jerry Douglas tells Soaps In Depth . “They’ve usually brought me back to play against Peter [ Bergman, Jack]. But it would be more exciting if John interacted with everybody — Ashley, Traci, the grandkids.
“That’s what I would find interesting,” he adds. “I don’t know if I’d want to come back unless I could be involved in an interesting storyline.”
Since being killed off back in 2006, John has re- turned from the great beyond a number of times to offer Jack wise counsel, as well as Ashley, Billy and his old friend, Katherine. His last appearance was back in 2015. “I had a lot of good years here,” Douglas shares. “I love this show!”
