I figured it would be around this time.

Wish it was during sweeps or the 11,000th episode. I just think it would help to have some more time because I have a feeling the exit is going to be shoddy as it seems the show is focusing on the story that was in place already for the next few weeks. We'll see.

I think I'm at the point where I just want them offscreen after the shitty stuff we've seen of them so far this week.

I would use this as an excuse to do a major flashback/reunion episode for 11,000 and then spend 11,001 and 11,002 focusing on their goodbyes and sendoff. That would be ideal IMO.

I think the sendoff will be fine.

It's everything before it that concerns me, especially with what we have been getting lately.

I honestly think they are going to be later this year anyways...I have a feeling this is a temporary thing..Who knows..
I agree. I really am starting to think this was a scare tactic to get the heavy hitters to take cuts and to also get J&M offscreen for awhile because they have no idea what to do with them, not that I can blame them. I don't think in a million years Corday would do this unless he felt he had to. It's not in him.

I expect them back by summer. It will be their big summer headline and that will allow him to use them more because they would've been gone for half the year.

I think whoever made the point about not noticing them being gone is on to something. Their lack of airtime at times in the last ten years and the fact that they have been written so badly of late makes me ok with them being gone.

I do expect them back though and well before the final episodes, especially if by some chance ratings do tank or decrease (which I doubt).

It's really sad that it's gotten to the point where everyone has just accepted the fact that Days will be over in 18 months and we will be seeing the final episodes. It's not even debated anymore. Pretty sad.
Oh, I still think there is life beyond that. I mean, we all thought they wouldn't even get this renewal.

I just know that if not in 2010, it will happen shortly after. There is no way this show is lasting another ten years, as is the case with the rest of daytime.

I guess it depends on the person.

As long as characters like Bo, Hope, Sami, etc are still around, it's Days.

The show has survived cast turnover before and still been Days. Hell, there were some in the 80's that lost Doug, Julie, etc and felt it wasn't Days when they saw Bo, Hope, Roman, etc running around. Eras come to an end and I think we are coming to the end of one for not just Days but for all soaps. I really think this is the first shot. Other soaps will follow suit soon.

I think its funny going by some of the posts in this thread that the end of Days is going to be caused by John and Marlena being gone, and not because of the shit writing they've been putting on air for years thats bored viewers to tears.
I agree.

It's going to be about more then one decision. If one wants to lump the past ten years worth of decisions together and then toss in whatever else is upcoming, then fine. I just think this one decision will not make or break Days. It will be a combination of many decisions (past, present, and future).
