I think people cannot expect DAYS will completely change for this storyline. You can already feel how the editors and directors are struggling to incorporate those scenes into the show. Abe/Lexie usually first appear in the second or third segment of the show and the scenes are completely isolated, I wouldnt be even surprised if they were all taped during one day and now are just used as filler whenever is the place.

People can say its shamefull, but Im sure DAYS is afraid to really turn it into a frontburner story. Its totally against DAYS profile and what viewers expect from the show. Its great publicity for NBC and Dena, who is clearly using it as a way to secure her position. But it will do nothing for the show ratingwise, on the contrary it can scare people away.
Another good-read column, Nelson, and many thanks for the George Carlin tribute. I agree with Jane's assessment posted above. I don't think Days can do the autism story in a way it should be dealt with just because as others have said, Days is too moronic for this story to fit in. We still have Jawn's 'memories' on a disk, and yes, Dr Rolf waiting in the wings. A serious storyline is not believable in Salem, USA.
