I'd actually like to see the next Days villain come from the Horton or Brady family. The "bad seed" angle is interesting to me and adds an additional layer to the story. Still think KM could play a great psycho and with all Abby gone through in the last year (her dad's death, her mom quickly moving on, her friends Gabi and Melanie betraying her), now seems like a old time for her to snap.
I want to see BOTH Will and Abby be villains! CM and KM can pull it off.
The last thing this show needs to do is ruin another Horton. Look at Jenn and how they write Lucas and Nick. There is no Horton now for this town to look upto. This show can't keep running to Alice and Tom. Maggie was setup to be the next patriarch and they've ruined her. She is not even a Horton.

They need to bring home Mickey's children and re-horton maggie. And use Nick or Lucas to brinh back the Horton name. You can't depend on dead characters to carry the essence of good for your show.
Idk when Horton started equalling good. That's not historically accurate overall. Young Hortons aren't going to fill the Tom/Alice void.

And uh...they ruined Maggie being the next patriarch when they gave her a vagina.
I know the whole good and evil think is relative, but I tend to think that the Hortons, like the Bradys, were generally supposed to be on the "good" end of the spectrum. They certainly haven't been dastardly villains in the vein of Stefano or Alex Marshall or Lawrence Alamain. Tom and Alice were the backbone of the show, and pretty much everyone, even the "bad" guys, looked up to and respected them. Mickey was a well-respected attorney in the town. Mike was a doctor, Jennifer was a journalist. Hope was a cop. Marie was a nun. Julie was a business woman, among other things. For the most part, we heard and saw that they were good at their jobs and well-respected. We never heard that any of them was deliberately villainous in the way they went about their work or that they were out to hurt people just for kicks or for personal gain. So, yeah, I would say the Hortons were generally known to be "good" more than "evil." But, of course, what all of the Hortons have been is flawed and human. Bill and Tommy were perhaps more flawed than the others. They've all made mistakes and missteps -- even Tom and Alice -- and they usually were made to pay for them, or at least called out by several people about them.

What we're getting today is watered down versions of who they once were. They're still not necessarily "evil." But they're not that "good" either. They're just grey and blah (when they're not irritating). When I hear "ruining the Hortons," that's what I think of. But, of course, it's happening to everyone on the show -- even the so-called villains are grey and blah (when they're not irritating), lol!
