I understand that new characters have to come on a show to make it interesting and to produce sl. All that bugs me, is, if they can't afford the actors that they ALREADY have, how can they afford to keep bringing NEW people on? Granted yes, newbies are cheaper. But why not just work with what you already HAVE???

When you have characters that people are already invested in... why not just work with that and develop that character. Instead of bringing on all the new people and trying to interest people.

As far as Sandra and her character, I have no problem with her. Salemites needs ALL the therapy they can get lmao ;)
Simple. It's cheaper to use a new character then a vet. Maybe that will change after they all take cuts but, as for right not, it's just cheaper.
Well if that's the case I guess we should get ready for the two new police cadets who will take over for Bope.
Nope because they took cuts. They are set.
And THAT is what chaps my ass more then anything! They were given the option. If Deidre and Drake were given the option of a pay cut ... and refused, then fine I see the point of letting them go to save money. But the mere fact that they weren't given that opportunity, after all the years they have worked for this friggin show... yes THAT pisses me off.

IMO Deidre and Drake are no better or worse then anyone else on this show. But being that they have been on this show for 20+ years, one would think they would at least be extended the opportunity of a pay cut BEFORE automatically being fired.
Maybe they simply werenīt needed? Like it or not Bope are more universal couple than Jarlena. Jarlena have their hardcore fans but also a lot of haters. Bope are universally liked by almost everyone and they work perfectly as the only happy, bantering, stable couple on the show. Friday, Monday being great example.

Their fans are also much less demanding.

There is really no story for Jarlena after Johnīs memory returns, everybody knows it. Thatīs why they tried build more and more obstacles in this Jawn story. Even Drake said again and again the last thing he wants is John to remember anytime soon or turn into the old John again because the boredoom of the old Jarlena was the exact reason why he was fired the first time.

As usual, fans sabotaged it, demanding the happy ending here and now. Even if Jarlena stayed, I already see fans would hate even this newest story with Dr. Taylor, so why even bother? I seriously doubt there even is a story Jarlena fans could be happy about.
