I really hope that Chandler Massey chooses to stick with Days when his current contract expires. I've been dreading the possibility that he would decide to move on to bigger and better things, since he's clearly talented enough to do so. I also hope that, if he does renew his contract, his episode guarantee (which is too low at the moment, IMO -- Camila and Blake definitely should not have a higher guarantee than Chandler) increases to no less than three per week.

There are also a few people on that list whom I would love to see disappear when their current contracts expire (and I'm sure that everyone who is familiar with my posts will be able to guess the identity of one of those individuals), but that's another matter.
I love Chandler and I too hope he stays around for awhile, but his acting hasn't 'wowed' me lately. His demeanor with most of the characters is essentially the same - timid and squirrely. He could be playing the character like that on purpose, given the stress he's under right now - but I'd like to see more versatility from him once in awhile. He is definitely capable of it. Even his demeanor during his NYE interaction with Nick, when he stood up to him and called him out on his homophobia, played as timid. I need to see a multi-faceted Will. Hopefully the turning point will come when he decides to take responsibility for his child.

As for the original post, I am happy for something approaching balance. There are multiple interesting, forward-moving stories going on right now (IMO) involving different people and I hope the show is able to maintain that for a sustainable period.
