Behold my punctuality.

Which former Verbotene Liebe characters would you like to see come back before the end? Also what sort of backstories/headcanons for the time they were gone and/or the reasons they came back?

This is a difficult question, because on the one hand I don't think anyone should come back. The actors chose to leave, they shouldn't be able to swoop in at the end for some final glory. On the other hand, I want everyone possible to come back, because it's the last chance, and any/all of the characters deserve some kind of recognition. But as some sort of middle ground between "all of them" and "none of them", and also leaving aside the blanket approval I would give to absolutely any character coming back for the sole purpose of declaring their love for Olli, here are the Top Five specific characters I would really like to see back.

After Matthias dies in a tragic diving accident of the coast of the South Island, she is accused of insurance fraud and so flees back to Germany with adorable baby Christina who is probably adorable primary-school-age Christina by now. Because of Christina, Sebastian arranges for her to live at the castle where she causes tension between Ansgar and Alexa because Ansgar still loves her really. She also has a go at Andi for running Brandner Bau into bankruptcy, and he's so ashamed that he runs away to live in Azerbaijan and no one ever hears from him again. She has a brief affair with Olli. But that's just a stop gap, because ultimately she gets together with...

Adorable, precious Consti. He returns from Spain to have a brief affair with Olli, but when he realises Nathalie is back too, he has to be near her. They try and rekindle their love through language lessons again, but because Consti can speak Spanish himself now, Nathalie has to try and teach him a New Zealand accent. Thus hes tirrible ruselts end hi losus hus jorb es en untirpruter whin hi bucomes uncapable of talkung iny other way, aach aaf Duitsch. In order to support Consti during his time of unemployment, Nathalie cons Ansgar out of all his money, meaning she and Consti can run away to live their dream life on the Mediterranean.

Hearing that Constantin was back in town, Judith returns too, but sadly for her she arrives on the day he and Nathalie leave. She has a brief affair with Olli to help her get over it, during which time she becomes acquainted with recast Rebecca. The pair of them bond over their shared job as designers even though they work in very different fields, and work on a joint project to create a building in the shape of a dress. Rebecca falls in love with Judith, who after an episode's worth of slight confusion realises that, although it would be much more in character for her to spend 8 months dithering on this, she loves Rebecca too and they would be an awesome couple.

After it turns out that Hagen actually was still a complete nutjob and he murders Dana and Ricardo in their sleep, Jessica returns to Dusseldorf with Maxi. In search of comfort, she has a brief affair with Olli, but they both decide they would prefer to be friends. She moves back into the flatshare, where she bonds with Tim and they get together. His new role as a quasi stepdad makes Tim grow up a bit, and the Helmke family all reconcile because they love their adorable new nephew/grandson, and bond over spoiling him rotten.

After Leonie cheated on him in Paris with a really ugly hairy fashion designer who moved there this summer, Timo returns to Dusseldorf. He is horrified to see how much Emilio has changed, and consoles himself by having a brief affair with Olli. He hasn't given up on Emilio though, and pays for Emilio to get is tattoo changed back to say "Timo" again instead of "Kim". New badass Emilio doesn't care about proper tattoo aftercare though, and develops septicaemia after the tattoo gets infected. Timo has to nurse Emilio through his illness, and during this time Emilio realises what an idiot he's been. They admit their love for each other, have sex, and then Timo buys Emilio a new Barno for them to run together.

...I'm frankly aghast that Uncle Lars didn't make my list.

What about you lot, who would you bring back? Why/how?
