    Yes in my second post here I said, she made 12 TV movies, not all specifically produced by her. Although she did star in them. So she had a pretty successful run as a TV movie queen.

    The public might have wanted her back but they didn't have control over the storyline.

    I could be wrong but I don't think that was ever mentioned onscreen. It was more or less a wink to the viewers but had nothing to do with the character herself.

    Didn't Gary or Laura say at one point, that it's so obvious, that Abby hired her for him, and then even her inicials... "Cee Gee", and that it could all not be a coincidence?
    I could be wrong too, haven't watched that season in ages, but i think i've heard something like that on the show ... or was that just in my head?!

    I remember an interview with one of the shows producers or writers who referred to Hartman's characters as "our angel-slut". I think he also said Hartman was a "good luck charm". I think the production team was fond of Hartman and the was the "popular demand" that resulted in her return.

    I confess I did not make/see the CG connection until well after LH had left the series the second time. Soap Opera Digest joked that she would likely return in a few years as "yet another character with the initial C and G" if the ratings fell. It was like someone had smacked me up side the head.

    A thought: Cathy only had the "Geary" last name due to marrying Ray Geary, so she very likely had a different initial growing up. Why she would decide to keep that last name, given all the rotten things he did to her, I'll never know.

    And I still believe she left the show too soon.
