It's very possible that they didn't intend to end Safe so they had to scramble for a new story for him. However, I think the rest of your post proves my point about Rafe. It's taken them 9 months to get a new story up-and-running for him because of he's not a natural part of the canvas. And even when they were finding a new story for him, they didn't bother to feature him on even a tangential basis, because again, his character wasn't necessary to his any particular story beats the way that somebody like Hope is. And really, I think this discussion can be divorced from whether anybody likes or doesn't like Rafe or GG. IMO, this is more of a writing issue that Days continues to have with new characters that aren't a member of a Salem family. If you're not a Brady, Horton, Kiriakis or DiMera, it's really hard to ingrain yourself into the Salem fabric because the writers don't create enough connections between different characters.
