Corday says killing babies was one of the three things his parents taught him never to write but then he goes on about how great the ratings were for Zach's death and blah, blah, good story.
Thanks Kenny. This whole 'rerun' approach is part of what's causing Days' downfall now. What Corday and the writers are doing is taking surface elements of previous stories and assuming (incorrectly imo) that they'll work again now. Kristian Alfonso is a far better actress than Ali Sweeney, Zack was an extremely likeable kid who'd been on the show (with the same actor playing him) for years, and the Zack story took place at Christmas/New Years when the ratings are higher anyway. Corday's assumption that his combining Ali Sweeney's "talents", a new baby and a dry ratings period now will produce the same results is ridiculous.

Not to mention that the baby they are killing has no real ties to core characters on the show. Zach WAS truly Bo and Hope's child. Grace is not Sami and EJ's baby. As hard as it will be to watch, it does lessen the emotional impact somewhat because we'll know that eventually this suffering will be replaced with joy once they realize their baby is alive.
