[show]SPOILER: Chase was slated to return to the show after presumably drowning at the end of season six in the San Francisco Bay saving his baby from drowning. Robert Foxworth took a year off to be with his long-time companion Elizabeth Montgomery during her lengthy illness. At the end of season seven, Angela is seen talking to a mysterious man in a monastery asking him if he thinks it's time to tell Maggie he's alive.
