  1. Why couldn't ATWT have gotten Hugo Napier for the Series Finale?!
    Gunnar was never shown to have died, he just went up in the hot air balloon and never returned, if that wasn't an opening for an eventual return on a soap, I don't know what is!

    The show could have planned a storyline arc involving Barbara receiving strange messages from someone that she is afraid could be James, only to discover it to be Gunnar. She is angry at first but after hearing his story of slowly returning to good health from a life threatening condition, they reconnect.
    The show could have also ended on a slight cliffhanger with Barbara still deciding where her future lies, with Henry or with Gunnar?
    Of course, good writing was no longer ATWT's forté in the last decade of that show's run.
