I agree, to an extent. Crystal definitely sounded totally uninterested when her return was first announced. I do think part of it was that GL was ending, but you could really tell that she was not interested at all, and back then most of what she talked about when it came to Carly was throwing some Olivia into her. However, now, I do think she is genuinely excited and enjoying it.

- Chappell says she was concerned about playing Carly again, "because she was such a goody two-shoes and I wasn't really jazzed about coming back to play such a goody-goody."
I knew it!
Back when it was first announced that she was coming back to Days, I could tell she wasn't happy about it. Everyone was like, "Oh... you're reading too much into it. She's just sad that GL is ending." But I was right, LoL. Her heart wasn't in it, and IMO, her heart still
isn't in it. She might be enjoying the story in terms of getting steady work and still getting a paycheck, but I don't think she feels emotionally connected to Days at all. I think this is just another job for her. On Twitter and in interviews, she's always gushing about GL and chomping at the bit to talk about Venice, but the only time she mentions Days is when someone directly asks her about it. She never goes out of her way to gush about Carly the way she gushes about other characters/shows/projects.
Anyway, I wonder who the character is that Carly is trying to protect? Clearly it isn't Lawrence, because he's the one she knifes. And it isn't Bo, so who does that leave? Rafe? LoL.
Thanks for posting this, Ellie! :)
