It's actually less expensive to keep him on recurring and pay him per show, as opposed to guaranteeing him a certain number of episodes every week, and then having to pay him even if they don't use him. That's why so many front-burner characters on soaps these days are non-contract.
you dont know what the financial stipulations of the contract are. It could be a flat weekly rate that could end up being cheaper than paying for each show for all we know. People seem to be making alot of assumptions like they know everything about how the biz works when they really dont, and its getting silly. Including that just because he's ordered a certain way in the show's credits he even has a contract. Days has made many fuck ups with its cast list, its not like we even have show or mag confirmation of this contract, its compensation, or its length.
