LONG LIVE THE KING!
Mark it on your calender, royalphiles!
Thursday, January 22, 2009, the one-time ruling King of San Cristobel (so he seized the throne illegally? So what? No one is perfect) returns to Springfield, apparently healed from his latest set of injuries (little kids push hard!) and ready to set right some Edmund-perceived wrongs.
Ex-wife Cassie may be out of town now, but there's still Edmund's other ex-wife, Beth, to torment. Not to mention Reva, who probably still holds a grudge over that whole tried to kill her and her son -- several times -- thing, and Dinah, whom he drugged -- several times. Then there's Olivia, whom Edmund merely threatened to kill, and Alex, whom he dallied with first at Alan's command, then for fun and eventually ended up blackmailing -- also for fun. So there's plenty to keep Edmund busy. (And that's not even counting the men. Think Edmund is going to let bygones be bygones over Jeffrey's drugging him into a coma? Or Rick helping Jeffrey kidnap his rival? Or Josh for being... Josh?)
David Andrew Macdonald, who has played the dashing, Machiavellian prince on and off since 1999, resumes his signature role in almost exactly two months.
Until then, enjoy our photographic look back at Edmund's past adventures in Springfield. The good, the bad, and the baby-napping...
