    Sorry don’t want Aiden back , don’t like him & I didn’t like him as Matt on 90210. No natter what he tried killing Hope. He could of went to the cops & besides he’s a lawyer he should of been smarter to get involved with the Dimeras

    Don’t want him back. Never liked his character. Never will. Not even with Hope. Leave him dead. He’s worthless to the show. The ratings keep going down. The writers are ruining the show.

    Do Not want Aiden and Hope back together. Just let him help his son and find someone else. I still thimk he had something to do with his wife’s muder.
