The couple has been an intricate part of the soap's storyline in the last year, including a highly publicized wedding that took place in November. Last week, the couple argued over a DNA test that Kyle secretly performed to find out whether Oliver was the father of Stacy's baby. According to the magazine, their storyline will be wrapped up soon, beginning with a big reveal on the March 29 episode.

In the meantime, does this mean that Kyle and Fish, aka Kish, will be exiting the show for good? Not exactly. A show rep told TV Guide Magazine that the couple will remain in Llanview, but with no immediate plans to return.

Sound off, 'OLTL' fans: Will you miss Kish?
