Higley really gave Steve and Kayla what could've been a strong story with the Ava story but it got dropped and that is what I find so funny about SN's comments. He praises Higley for the Ava story yet he thinks getting rid of Ed Scott was a mistake. Ed Scott was the reason that story fell apart and the reason why Ava got tossed in with J&M., which led to SN and MBE complaining about how it all ended.
I think Stephen Nichols meant that Ed Scott's departure was a bad thing for the show. I don't think he was speaking in terms of just Steve and Kayla's story, but cast morale and the overall quality of the show when Ed was fired.
Sure, bad for the show in terms of production but it had to be done.

Yes, Higley should've been gone too. Hell, she should've never been given the HW's job. However, what he did warranted this course of action. Ed is smart. He knew what he was doing was wrong and the fact that he did it after being in this industry for so long is the part that really makes him come off badly because you know he knowingly did it. He should know better. The guy was a strong leader. All he had to do was get the cast on his side and have them all come with him or assist him in making a case to Sony or some of the higher-ups. If they did that and really stirred the pot, something would've been done, especially with Corday who caves to pressure.

That is why Tomlin has gotten shit done. He does what he has to do to and is a hard-ass about it but he has to be to make the difficult decisions that need to be made. He goes to Corday, makes his case, and does not give up until he gets the result he wants. However, he does all of it within the rules. It's remarkable how similar Tomlin and Langan are in what they've done in the early parts of their stints with Days.
