I'd love it if DAYS did a really compelling, realistic story for a change, but in some sort of fun umbrella event that affects the entire cast. Nothing that warrants a major PSA or for the story to be written in a PSA style manner, but I think part of the problem with the show is that no one takes it seriously anymore because, one the ratings take a slight dip, they panic and undo the work of the previous story.
The show's biggest mistake was bringing all those people back from the dead in 2004 instead of killing them off permanently. I think everything(including Alice Horton's murder) was setting the show up for a major revamp and update, which would have pissed off the old guard, but would have kept the 18-49 they covet(much in the same way Marlena's Possession did in 1995).
If they do an attention grabber, Corday needs to stand behind his HW and EP and let them chart the course, no matter what. Tomlin and Whitesell are the kind of duo that can bring attention to a show. They're stunt driven, youth-oriented camp freaks, but they understand that kind of show and are loyal to the viewers that stick with them(and I love them for their efforts).
DAYS needs that kind of energy again. The fans need to feel like they can invest in a story without being told "gotcha" again. It's tedious.
