Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Yeah, I definitely think he's pointless. And honestly, even if they'd had a plan when they ended Safe (which I'm almost 100% sure they didn't) I don't think it would have mattered. I said the same when they hired CS. It's not going to work. It's not going to be good. He has no place in Salem, and I feel the same about Daniel. Contrive as many relationships as you want, these people don't belong.

Hopefully, they won't make the same mistake with this new guy, but based on their track record, I'm not holding my breath.
Exactly. And really, I don't know why they bother creating completely new characters since there are so many families out there they could leverage. I mean, why isn't CS Sarah Horton rather than Jordan Ridgeway? Why isn't Liam a long-lost Deveraux or Toscono rather than Liam I-don't-care-about-his-last-name? Etc., etc.
Well, ultimately I think they need brand new characters, too. They just haven't figured out an effective way to do that. And part of the reason they have trouble with it is that they start in the wrong age group. We don't need new 40 year olds.
It's crazy. Discount Chandler and Freddie, who play gay characters, and Casey Moss, who plays a teenager, and the rest of the main male characters are: (1) 34 yr old, (1) 40 yr old, (3) 42 yr olds, (1) 48 yr old, and a new hire who is 43.
