I didn't start watching until Nov. 2005 so I missed some of the early Zach moments.  I was able to watch clips for a lot of it and catch up.  But I still have a Julia related question for those who have been watching longer than I have.  How did Zach come in contact with Julia and what led to him helping her with the Dragon.  I've seen a few clips here and there from that storyline, but the details of what happened are still a little sketchy for me.  Could someone please give me a recap of what happened during that time.  Thanks.

Funny you should ask that today, Mackenzie. It was because of Lily.

She was involved with Sam Grey, he was her first age appropriate boyfriend... but all of his issues regarding Zach and his father's death led him to be a little more aggressive than Jackson liked. So he forbid them to see each other. And you know what Lily does when Jackson forbids her to do something... she goes out of her way to do it! She and Sam made arrangements to meet at the empty Wildwind estate... and Lily was convinced that there was a ghost at Wildwind (possibly Edmund himself).

This gets a little convoluted here -- but practical Lily believed in ghosts because she had caught Ryan on the grounds of the casino as he was making his escape after Zach helped him fake his death. Rather than risking Lily spilling the beans to Greenlee and Kendall, Zach convinced Lily that it was Ryan's ghost. So when she thought that there was a ghost at Wildwind, she went to Zach for assistance with her latest mystery.

When Zach investigated Wildwind in search of Lily's ghost, he found Julia hiding out there from the Dragon and the authorities who wanted to send her back to the Witness Protection Program where she had spent the last... all together now... NINE YEARS of her life. Being Zach, he agreed to help her... but being Pine Valley's resident emissary of evil, everyone interfered and nearly got Julia, Zach, Kendall and Di killed in the process.

 It was The Dragon storyline. On 7-21-2005  Lily saw a ghost when she was with Sam at Wildwind. On 8-1 she told Zach about it when they ran into "Ryan's ghost" at the casino. Zach went to Wildwind to check it out and ran into Julia and the story took off around 8-5 and ran through 10-12, if you want to follow the transcripts or recaps.


 Basically, Julia witnessed a mob hit 9 years prior and she and her husband, Noah, went into the witness protection program. Several names and several places later, Noah couldn't take it anymore and went out to track The Dragon on his own. He found some info, but wouldn't share it with Julia or the Feds and he was killed. (or so we believe; that could always change at some future date). Zach felt compelled to help her because he didn't want Maria to suffer another loss. He had a hard time convincing her he was not a villain and that she needed help to survive.
 
Di, who was pretending to be Dixie at the time, had been involved with Garrett in the past (at the same time as Annie's husband who used to work for either Garrett or Di's other friend, also an employee of Garrett- I get confused). Garrett, in his alter ego  as megawealthy businessman and philanthropist, was in PV trying to seduce Dani and marrying her mother, Mimi, who was in charge of the task force to catch him.

The day he married Mimi (I think), he managed to kidnap Julia and take her to his hideout in New York City. With Tad and Zach frantic to find her (the jailhouse clips), Di was finally moved to try to help. She ended up captive in the hideout with Julia. Together they overpowered Garrett and Julia went ahead and killed him just before Zach and Tad  (with a clue provided by Lily and Sam) came to rescue them.

Julia was reunited with Sam and Anita, the remaining Santos clan in PV at a suite at the Casino. Zach offered  Di a job because she was persona non grata in PV after her identity deception was discovered. And Zach went back to his condo to tell Kendall that "The bad guy is dead and I'm not dead yet." (Another favorite clip.) And she tells him she is pregnant.

To the best of my recollection that's it. You probably would enjoy the transcripts or the recaps. Tad and Zach had some funny run-ins, including getting locked in the bank vault overnight by Alfred Vanderpool (?) as a favor to Dixie/Di. And I know I didn't explain the Garrett, Di, Mimi, Dani stuff very well.

P. s. I see Cheri was answering this more clearly while I was typing.
