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.

My nana started watching AW when she saw an ad for it while walking through Manhattan in the 1960s. She immediately became hooked. I started watching it in 1999 but then it was cancelled. Soon after, my nana and I began watching AW's replacement "Passions." That show was so disturbingly bad and the fact that that show replaced AW is truly a shocker. AW was a story with character and class. A story that men, women, young, and old could watch and relate to. Linda Dano was especially excellent. AW will sorely be missed and, sadly, Passions has neither the character nor the class that AW has. But then again, no soap did. I now watch OLTL and GH on ABC and they both are enjoyable though don't compare to AW. AW fans can take solace in Soap Net and when Passions is finally cancelled we eventually can take solace in the fact that we have killed the enemy.
