    Sad to see you go. The character of Dylan has had so many significant storylines. PTSD, discovering birth parents were Nikki and Paul, becoming a cop, supporting Ben (Stitch). Recent storylines have not allowed Dylan to shine as he did in the past but that is the writers not Steve Burton, dragging on the baby stealing storyline has been dull. Best of luck in future endeavors!
