Gail is Caleb and Merlyn's cousin they never knew existed--she's a reporter from the city.
Her parents were editors of the Trinity paper, where they died locked in the building in a fire in 1976, the
day Lucas Buck was elected sheriff. She was sent away to foster homes and has just returned to Trinity
to find out more about their deaths. She does know Lucas found the bodies--she suspects he may
have been the cause of their deaths. She may have had a relationship with Lucas in a past life; he
was startled by her initial appearance, and she feels an undeniable attraction to him, as he does to her.
Paige Turco brings Gail to life.
