Quoting limited to 2 levels deep
I've been noticing a lot of parallel storylines in Days since I have been watching OLTL and it would be so natural for Higley to borrow what worked for OLTL and doctor it up around Days characters.

James Scott leaving could be the news, especially if his contract negotiations came to a impass and they let him go. That almost happened to the guy who plays Phillip until something changed.

OLTL took over the injured marine story and altered it when they hired she who played Mimi on Days and gave her a real original name of Gigi. That was too unoriginal, but it is working.

One Life didn't have an injured Marine. There was a Navy Seal-Brody-who had post traumatic stress disorder when he thought he shot a boy, thus injuring Rex in a delusion. Even if RC did "borrow" from Days, he did it a lot more creatively than Dena Higley "borrows" from One Life and he develops the story better.
Yes, Gigi's name is a little too similar to Mimi's, but there the similarities end, except for maybe the keeping of a secret, which came out in a better way, too!
