I can't support the idea of killing Steve and Kayla offscreen (or onscreen for that matter), so ixnay on that idea. The easiest way to do this would have been for them to send Steve and Kayla out of Salem permanently (with an actual goodbye) when the fired SN and MBE. It doesn't really matter where, but Europe seems a popular choice. Let it have something to do with Kayla's career (big research project or something).|
We all know that if Stephanie were in trouble, Steve and Kayla would be back in a heartbeat, but we also know that "out of town" relatives never show up in situations we know they would. We're used to that and despite the occassional bitchfest about it, it's pretty routinely accepted (i.e. the reason Brady wasn't at John's "funeral" or why Frankie wasn't at OMB's funeral). Plus, there is the added benefit of being able to fanwank that they aren't getting the whole story over the phone, so they don't know just how bad things are, etc., etc.
Based on what has been said lately, it appears that the show has in fact shifted to the "Steve and Kayla are out of town at least semi-permanently" mode. I can live with it (don't like it, but can live with it), but it would have been much better if they had just done that from the beginning.
