I definitely think they're trying to throw us off by throwing Chad into the mix. He's the perfect red-herring. We've seen so many things that indicate that he WILL be the one with Sonny, and I think that's definitely intentional as a way to throw us off.
I'm willing to concede that more than likely it's Will, but at the same time I say throwing Chad into the mix is probably TPTB hedging their bet or gauging the GA's reaction and/or receptiveness to the possibility of a gay love story before actually (publicly?) committing to the storyline. Yes, cynical is my middle name.
I'm willing to concede NOTHING! Perhaps I would if there wasn't enough ample evidence to already suggest that Will could be the one. They've done things (and they have more things coming up with him) to suggest that he could still be the closeted one behind Gabi's back. Gabi has a talk with Abby concerning Will's behavior coming up soon (or has it happened already). If anything, they are playing Will, Chad, and T as equal possibilities. So it's a game of who will they pick (as well as who would provide the better story)? And it can be either of them at this point. No red herrings needed!

I felt the episode in which Sonny and Chad played pool together was choke-full of old school anvils from the moment Chad entered the Cheatin Heart. But then, anvils are subjective, so where I may interpret a line as foreshadowing, others may not. As they say YMMV.
EJ's "peace and LOVE" comment as he watches Chad/Sonny shaking hands and eyeing each other may or may not have been anvil material. Also, Chad telling Stefano that "he will never be the son he wants him to be" may have an alternate meaning given the circumstances. Time will tell either way.
Exactly. It's all about subjective interpretation. I read a post the this week's episode discussion thread in which someone interpreted Will/Sonny's conversation about how Sonny handled idiots like T as an anvil that Will in fact will be having to deal with the same situations in the near future. I didn't interpret the conversation that way. Again, YMMV.
And just for the record, I think Chad/Sonny have got IT..............The game of pool episode at The Cheatin' Heart caught my eye mostly because of something Sonny said and something Chad did. Will/Sonny were engaged in a conversation about each other's love lives, and when Sonny mentions something about "there being someone out there for me" Chad enters and appears standing right behind Sonny. Oh those anvils can be something else. :cheers: :mutley:

This is what I think, too. I agree at first it most definitely was going to be Will, but now, I'm not convinced that he is still the designated character, especially with anvils indicating it could be either him OR Chad.
What anvils have you seen that it could be Chad? I think both Will, Chad and the entire teen scene including T has shared the same amount of screen time with Sonny at this point we see no indication in the writing that they are going with anyone as Sonny's love interest and at this point they can even turn the homophobe asshole T into his love interest down the line.

The funny thing is that the interviews continue despite a young woman by the name of Camila Banus blowing the lid off the storyline months ago. But the debate rages on (perhaps rightfully so, who knows). I do wonder about the circumstances about Bryan Datillo. This is a deep storyline that calls out for Will's bio father to be part of it. Lucas being the kind of person that he was (an alcoholic with a poor track record with women) would've provided the right ingredient for Will's story to have that extra zing.

Video: We Love Soaps interview with Chandler Massey
The interviews continue to be pointless. They should just go ahead and say if it's Will or not since the audience nominated the character months ago. It's all so tiresome now and I still say that this storyline BLOWS without Lucas. Neither Rafe nor Austin are viable substitutes.

Soaps In Depth: Days Articles
Supposedly, Quinn is to return on a POSITIVE note. So I guess his new job as spa owner will be on the up and up.

SOD: Fall Preview!
Well, the writers talk about bringing Quinn back in a POSITIVE way. So I'm wondering what the word positive means to these writers.

SOD: Fall Preview!
I'm doubtful that they're keeping Quinn just so he can be even more skeevy than he's already been. They might just as well have let him go because viewers will only dislike him more. They may have been thinking along some other lines when they made the "Shampoo" reference.

SOD: Fall Preview!
I'm intrigued by the "new" Quinn they're going to unleash. Sounds like they're looking to turn him into a bit of a good guy (although he's kind of a good guy right now) and have him heading up the Horton Town Square Day Spa. What they do with him beyond that will be interesting to see.

SOD: Sami's Cancer Scare

And THIS is the first we hear of the new writers' changes. I'll give them a chance but if this is the kind of shit they continue to write in the coming months, no thanks. I've had my fill of Safe love and scrunchy-face crying.
How can this not be a taste of what the new writers future style will be? I mean this is their work, Dena's material that's been tweaked by them.

Spoilers for the week of August 22nd
The fully rewritten stuff is what's coming in September, isn't it? That's when the show is reset or whatever. I didn't get the impression that Days45 was referring to that by mentioning August 26th, but then again, somehow maybe he was.

Next week's SOD story on Sami's cancer scare was just posted at FL. AS says specifically the new HWs wanted to show Safe united and going through this tough time together, so it looks like the script tinkering will start to show up next week.

On a related note, if this is the first glimpse into the new HW's direction color me VERY disappointed. More epic Safe love and a poor me story for Sami is about the last thing I want to see featured.
This is what I thought. And the mentioning of August 19th, I assumed meant the last official day of Dena's writing with August 22nd starting off the tweaked episodes. It also fits because next week will end the DiMera/Kiriakis feud, something that the new HW's would likely have done rather than Dena.
Dena began and ended the first D/K feud just as quickly, lol.
Perhaps. But it seems that next week's shows were tweaked still, thanks to Sami's story.

That's what I'm thinking. I don't know if they can declare a firm date as to when the re-writes start because what exactly is defined as the first date of re-writes? Is it the first day that they tweaked a line or two in an epi? Is it the first day they started to change a storyline direction? Is it the first day that they were responsible for more than 50% of the epi? I think it's safe to say that starting in the next week or so, we are probably not going to see things that clash with their plan to wrap up stories, as they probably had time to catch/correct those things. And we probably won't see things that clash with their future vision for the show either. I'm actually kind of interested for the next month. We won't know yet the stories they are planning, but we will hopefully start to get a sense for the general direction they want to take characters.
I've been doing some research. We first found out about the rewrites from the twitter lady. SHe said they were rewriting 17 scripts. So...17 episodes back from September 23, takes us to August 31st. Now...they may have rewritten sporadic episodes and left some alone. They also may have rewritten 17 full episodes and done some other tweaking before that. I'm thinking we're not going to really see a change until September. I do think it's possible that some people had some dates mixed up. Plus, Marlene said that the stories would begin wrapping up on the 19th, but maybe some of them were already slated to wrap up then anyway.

We've been told for weeks, even months that the date of the re-writes would be August 19th. Now as that date closely approaches, someone decides to put out August 26th? I don't believe it! Simply because of that person's timing and I'm also guessing that there is something about next week's spoilers that appear unfavorable. I'm going with what was originally said.
Did they ever say it was definitely the 19th? Or did they say "around the 19th"?
I don't even know if that matters . Furthermore, on the 19th or around the 19th is different from saying the 26th. Again, the timing?
Of course it's different. It's different numbers. However, they didn't say "the 26th." They said around the 26th. It makes a difference because "around the 26th" can also be around the 19th. That's only a week's difference. I was just trying to figure out if they ever said definitively that it would be the 19th. Days45 didn't give an exact date. We know a certain number of scripts were rewritten, but I'm wondering if there were some other small changes that were made that's made the date a bit more ambiguous.

He's open to returning and they haven't asked.

Chad and Sonny join forces to end the fued. I really do not think Chad is gay. The show seems invested in the Chad/Abby relationship. At least I hope so.
I don't see where the show is invested in them at all. Most of their scenes have ranged from bland to just plain lousy. Will and Gabi are looking more interesting than they do right now.

I'm sorry, but I don't believe for a minute they decided not to do the story because BD declined to return. First of all, I don't think they have decided not to do the story and second, I don't think BD was asked but said no. My bet is that he wasn't even asked. I think he should be there, but it's obvious to me that the show doesn't want him there. if they did, he'd of returned with the others coming back, IMO.
Perhaps. But it would seem strange that they wouldn't bother trying to get BD back knowing there was a storyline being written which makes his character Lucas an integral part of. Some may or may not agree, but I think Lucas is a very important component to this story. I'll go so far and say that Lucas is NEEDED to make this story work honestly and effectively. We're talking about a father and his (presumably) gay son. Most fathers don't want their sons to be gay for various reasons. And there are a lot of important beats to be explored from the father/gay son standpoint. Without Lucas, the storyline loses a great deal of sizzle.

I wonder if it WAS Will but now it isn't? This could be due to the fact that maybe they tried to get Bryan Dattilo to come back but he declined. Now they've shifted gears. I've said it before, they can tell the story with Will without Lucas but it would be noticeably glaring. And I think out of all the people to be involved in the story, Lucas is the most important. Lucas's son would be gay, and a lot of very important beats would be missed if Lucas wasn't there.
