I'm 99% sure DH confirmed she was never even ASKED to appear in H6. Talk about misguided blundering. J.C. Brandy is fine considering how little the character has to do. But everyone knows this is Danielle's role. And having her return would have provided some welcome continuity in a series that's not exactly committed to that ideal. I'm guessing Dimension underestimated Danielle's popularity with Halloween fans--which seems kind of hard to believe considering the way she carried H4 and H5 on her back. Stupid.
