I think the agent who made the post doesn´t know much about the show so he switched Allie/Johnny with Mia/Sami´s babies. Otherwise it doesn´t make even slightest sense. We saw the babies today, they are todlers. They don´t need any acting abilities or anything to be praised for like the post claims, they just exists.
On the other side, Allie/Johhny were just slighty sorased and yes, the original kids playing them had to be atleast a little focused and understand where they are, so I think the agent is talking about them. It even makes sense timewise, because the footfight scene from the Pub were taped on January 5 and that´s the first time we saw the older kids.
As for Ari leaving, never say never, but I would be shocked. She seems totaly into it, and she is the leading star of the show right now. I quess it´s still possible if the show approached her with some drastic budget cut demand and she refused, but I doubt it.
I have to wonder if maybe this has to do with Johnny and Alli since they were just recast.
It makes no sense to age newborns. Absolutely none. I know Days can be incompetent but come on. Even if Ari was leaving, I don't see how that would mean aging the babies.
As for Ari, I don't buy it. James Scott or even Ali Sweeney, sure. But Ari seems so happy right now. She is leading the A story and getting major accolades. She just returned to the show less then a year ago and says she is glad she came back because she loves it. She loves working with Eric Martsolf. That interview we just read with her seemed genuine. I doubt she is going and I doubt the show would let her go. Everyone seems to like her and she's been frontburner for months and ratings have been good with her leading the A story.
I think it's likely something got misinterpreted.
