Was that really necessary in this case though? The story hasn't even begun yet and we've already guessed that Kate and Madeline were Stefano's whores. If Tomlin was going for a shocking reveal here (which I'm guessing will take place in the next two weeks), he failed, LoL.
It should've come off in her scenes that she knew -- because Carly DID know.
I see your point here... sort of. However, the difference is that those were BIG stories. Nothing happening on the show today compares even a little bit. Also, the producer didn't just randomly hop on the set one day and whisper, "Psst... you're the killer!" right before Marlena appeared above Tony's hospital bed with a syringe in her hand, LoL. Plus, with the show taping so far ahead these days, telling the actors what's really going on with their characters should be the least of the producers worries re: twists being spoiled ahead of time.
It's not a crime for these actors to be told what's going on with their characters and what their motivations are. I don't think that would spoil much. If anything, it would help improve their performances, and God knows they need all the help they can get.
Didn't another actor or actress (I forget who) recently say that Gary Tomlin did the same thing to him/her on set or right before a scene or something?
And if that's the case, there's a problem -- because MANY things "aren't working" these days. This is why the actors need to know what the hell is going on with their characters and what their motivations are. They need a little direction. To express otherwise is absurd to me. There's a reason that daytime has had directors and producers for all these years. I don't believe for a second that they're suddenly not needed just because the pace is faster behind the scenes.
