If Days wanted to be possessive, they could have told SSH that they won't work with her any more if she does Y&R, but they haven't done that, or cut ties with Wally Kurth because he's at GH. Brian Frons wouldn't let FH work temporarily at Y&R even though she wasn't on contract at GH at the time. (I'm really glad this is a trend that is changing in daytime because it doesn't make sense anymore.)

What does Y&R have to offer DAYS really? If Stephen Nichols was still there I could see that. Right now there's nothing really. This is going to be a trade that only helps Y&R. I'm worried that Eileen Davidson is going to burn out again like she did last time on DAYS. I told Jamey Giddens that I didn't like the sound of this and he said its just for "guest spots." He then went on to say that Lisa Brown played two different roles on Guiding Light and As the World Turns and it worked out. Leading me to believe this could end ongoing if it works out. DAYS is just learning how to write for themselves. Cannot imagine if they have to write around Y&R's schedule.
Days already had lent Lauren Koslow all those years ago without exercising what they were supposed to get in return from the Bells at B&B. They've never interfered with SSH recurring occasionally, the way other soaps have done (like when Finola Hughes wasn't allowed to do a short term Y&R role by ABC). At some point Y&R will have something Days wants again. Days could have tried to bring Nichols back for Jack's death and S&K's divorce, but they never make the effort.
I don't really worry about Davidson getting burnt out, with Days' new shooting schedule. They will never do overtime the way they did in the 90's. I thought I remembered something about her shooting all her scenes by 10 in the morning... can't remember if that was Days or Y&R, but I'm more concerned about the writing getting burnt out on Kristen by overusing her, TBH.
Yeah, wasn't it a Lauren Koslow for Joe Mascolo swap that DAYS was too stupid to take advantage of? I understand that DAYS SHOULD do it, but no one on Y&R makes sense for DAYS. Stephen Nichols and Eileen Davidson were the only people and they're both gone. SSH was recurring so she could do whatever she wanted anyway. DAYS should take someone big from Y&R to use as a judge or prosecutor or something. Just do it because now they're owed two favors. Although I don't think Y&R or Sony will look at this Eileen Davidson as a favor since they basically took her from Y&R and gifted her to DAYS. This is more like Y&Rs new bosses saying sorry for Maria Arena Bell being an idiot and rejecting this from the beginning.
If I were going to borrow anybody from Y&R it would be Donna Temple Craig... I don't care that she's irrelevant to the show now, lol.
