Personally, I think that if Peter was as thoroughly satisfied and happy with Days as some are implying, then he wouldn't be off doing Venice for free in his spare time. I think that speaks volumes towards him wanting the opportunity to stretch creatively, play something different and work opposite CC.
THANK YOU!!! and he has even tweeted how he CANT WAIT for Season 3!!! Speaks volumes to me too!
Frankly, he is an ACTOR first.. Why wouldnt he be excited about a new project and a whole new character ?
For that matter the entire cast is excited about doing that project, including Nadia, and Galen Gering ...
Yet I dont think its a negative reflection on how they feel about their DOOL story or pairing.
GG has made it clear he is very pro SAFE... and I dont think his Venice work changes that.
I believe PR was excited with the return of Carly, as many of us were... But I dont think he expected the story he got in that department.
I would have been totally on board if Carly's return sparked hidden feelings over a period of time, and he was confused because of how much he loves Hope, and How Hope was trying to be understanding, and even friends with Carly.. but at the same time picked up up on little things.. clues that they still had 'Something' and then she had to deal with her own insecurities, and figure out what to do and how or if she would confront it.. I could have even accepted Bo breaking down and giving in to his memories and repressed desires in a weak moment.. and then having to deal with the guilt and confusion from them BOTH.. THAT would have made a much more compelling story.. Instead they ruined Carly's return, an wasted her talent because she would have been brilliant in a well written story.
