Harding Lemay was rehired to be the show's head writer in 1988, but a long-standing writers' strike kept him from participating. Donna Swajeski wrote the show during the strike, and was kept on to co-write the show with Lemay after the strike was over. The two clashed on the show's direction, and Lemay left. His return lasted only two months. In that time, he set up the stories that many claim Swajeski took much of the credit for: the return of Iris and the Frame family with never before seen members, including Janice Frame's long-lost son Evan Bates, and the romance of Felicia and Mitch.

This was such a great soap opera, with wonderful, talented actors breathing life into complex, terrific characters. I miss the marriages of Joe and Paulina, Jake and Vicky, and the romances of Amanda and Cameron, Cass and Lila, and many more. What would AW have been without Rachel Cory Hutchins, as played by the wonderful Victoria Wyndham? I wish that AW had brought back Iris, as played by Beverlee McKinsey in its final episodes, as they'd done with Charles Keating's Carl. I miss this soap, as I'm sure a lot of other people do. Daytime TV just isn't the same without it!
