I agree with you, Kenny. (And you're welcome everyone!) To be fair, SOD began this section of the article with Chappell's saying Days is "a blast", but I don't think that changes the overall situation, which is imo exactly as you're describing. Chappell has just finished putting all of her creative energy into GL and the Otalia pairing, and it seems to me also that that creative energy is now being channeled into Venice. Days does seem like just her 'day job' (so to speak). Not that I blame her - the Otalia pairing was successful and groundbreaking, and it would make sense that she'd want to continue working in that vein.

- 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! :)
