The newest issue of Soap Opera Digest features a November preview for all soaps. The preview for Days is provided by Ken Corday.

Among the tidbits Corday shares are:

- Kristen leaves Salem after a "stunning reveal". After this, Brady goes back to his old ways, which will not be a short character arc. Meanwhile, Eric realizes his mistake in accusing Nicole.

- Sami suspects EJ has been keeping a secret from her.

- A "major character" dies, and a coverup takes place afterward. This is the big murder mystery previewed at the beginning of the summer. Corday shares that this will not be a short story.

Check out the latest Digest for many more details!
Wow, none of this sounds very exciting, at all. And what is with this insistent on pointing out that these are not SHORT stories??? Does that really matter?
Yes, it does matter. It actually means they will bore us to death if those stories are not interesting enough which they usually are.
If they managed to make Kristen's story boring for some viewers (I personally don't belong to that group but it is because I adore the character and love Bristen), I even can't think what they will do with other characters in the centre and their "not short" stories.
In fact I think Days' writers have to learn how to write and integrate compelling shorter storylines so that the show could remain dynamic all throughout the year, not just for sweeps.
