SOW then asks Christian if Chloe is not just this week's love for Daniel. Christian responds that "for the record, Daniel has never admitted he's loved anybody up until this point."

SC must be suffering of some kind of amnesia, because he did say, that he was in love with Chelsea on June 11, 2008 episode.
Chelsea: Don't worry. No matter how I feel, I get that you're not in love with me. [Footsteps departing]

Daniel: The problem is I am.

I see this story about two horny people - Higley's lame attempt at a love affair not a love "story". But what it has turned into is a "lust" affair - full of those near porn scenes that for some odd reason Higley thinks will get people to tune in...
Did you see the numbers for last week? Im not the one who believes the ratings are directly connected with who is and isnt on but I was really shocked how good the numbers were for the engagment party/Danloe lust fest which was merely a filler.

The story certainly created the buzz, like it or hate it, so Im not surprised they are backtracking a little, trying to give the affair more substance, and maybe even thinking to continue with it beyond the wedding.

Something had to change because even SC and NB are much more enthusiastic and are doing their best to promote the show and their story lately. And it gets a lot of airtime, its actually the "B" story of the show right now.

That's news to me. I haven't seen any buzz whatsoever over this story.

I'm sorry but I just see this sl as more of Higley's sleaze. Whether you liked it or not, the story of Lucas and Chloe was built up a bit. And the two seemed happy. This random, vulgar hookup after Dr. Dirty examines Chloe is extremely objectionable and how anyone can characterize it as love, is beyond me. Sometimes I really feel sorry for the things actors have to say to promote the crap that passes as entertainment in this soap climate.

I don't think it's created anymore of a buzz than any other story or pairing that we've hated. People complained just as much about Chelsea/Daniel and Stephanie/Max.

I'm certainly not seeing Daniel and Chloe on the covers of any magazines, LoL.

Thinking about the topic of couples with Buzz, these days I can't think of any couple other than Nuke (ATWT) and Otalia (GL) that have any.

Actually, on a few other boards I've been on, I've noticed that more people are admitting they're strangely attracted to this. (Now, granted, this is NOT on boards where there tends to be a big Chloe-related fanbase of any type. Just sayin'.) But, I've seen more and more general fans admit to being attracted to this storyline, even in a trainwreck sort of way. Plus, it's because we don't know how it'll end. It's not predictable. Maybe it is sleeze, but for some, it's an intriguing sleeze of one sort or another.

Chloe breaks it off with Lucas and asks Daniel to run away with her.

Sounds like it ends with a whimper.

I saw a mention of the Chloe/Daniel love scenes on some Yahoo-connected site with a headline referring to how they were the "steamiest" scenes ever on daytime. So I think they might be catching attention that way.

I don't understand why Maggie's involved at all if she's not going to say anything. But then, I don't understand this storyline overall- nobody's behavior makes sense to me.

I know Maggie may think she is protecting Lucas, but she is not. Secret have a way of coming out. Hell i just wish she tell him that way we can see how Kate will react.

I have a bit of very general Lucas/Chloe info beyond the time-frame in the SOD/SOW preview. Maggie does eventually tell Lucas about Chloe & Daniel, and he calls off the engagement/breaks up with Chloe. He then falls off the wagon, and gets into a car accident while drunk. He is injured, but survives. (this happens late February).

I'm glad Maggie is getting airtime, but it's also a little sad because it just reminds me that Alice Horton will most likely never be seen again. :( but I am happy Maggie is the matriarch

I won't ask how you know but is your source reliable? If so, then that sounds good. Very good, actually.

It makes me think the show really has changed their minds. Chloe/Daniel were going to leave together but now maybe they are keeping them around. I can't see the secret coming out this quick through Maggie and one or both leaving because it kind of makes them save face a bit. It would've been worse for it all to come out near or at the wedding.

I have to wonder if between the explosion and the car accident, Lucas and Chloe come back together as long as she promises to be through with Daniel. Then she can't seem to stay away from him and betrays Lucas only for it to come out in the worse way possible at her wedding to Lucas. That would make it even worse!

I'm really getting into this story now LOL.

That is the only downside and I have to wonder if that maybe why we are getting so much of her.

That and with Marlena gone, I think the show needs someone onscreen a good amount of the time to be the "talk-to" character and the person that kind of holds things together. The show needs a calming force and an emotional "heart" or "center" and who better then Maggie Horton, a member of Days' core family.

Many have been calling for Maggie to get more screentime for years and we are finally getting it. I'm pelased but I wish we could see Alice for sure.

Maggie getting screentime for whatever reason is always nice, but I'd guess it's probably because she's below her guarantee or something like that. Often when any actor is on a lot like this after having been largely offscreen for a while, that's why. Unfortunately, I don't think the show is motivated by anything more than that at this point.

Hi Phoenix Rising -- yes, my source is reliable. But as I said, I only got that general tidbit; I don't know any details.

Oh my Lucas!! I kind of wanted him to fall off the wagon, because I think it would make for good material for BD ... oh but an accident?!?!?! YIKES. Stupid Chloe. *grumbles*
I hope that Sami will rush to be there for Lucas during this time! That would be a fantastic way to revisit Lumi, and Sami sure as heck owes Lucas at least that much, for how much he has been there for her! Oh, I just hope this really means actual good story for Lucas ... dare I hope!?!

Normally, I would agree but when is the last time MAGGIE saw this much airtime?

It's different for characters like Steve, Kayla, Bo, Hope, etc. Maggie is one who usually only appears in scenes at Chez Rouge or at family gatherings or something like that. In the past few months, they seem to have made an effort to involve her in things and not just have her appear. First, they tied her in with Melanie and now they got her involved in the Lucas/Chloe/Dan stuff. Not to mention they even had her be the one to find the killer. There is a difference between using somebody and just having them appear. They are actually using her.

This reminds me of the way they began using Caroline last year. It's like Maggie is filling the role she did in terms of screentime this year. Sure, after September, we no longer saw Caroline as much, ifat all. She kind of went back to her normal amount of screentime but we also got a solid 9 months of seeing Caroline around 8 times a month. Maggie is starting out that way this year too and I think that is great. I don't expect them to be frontburner but I do like them being used in supporting roles like this and I don't think it has anything to do with guarantees. It seems like certain writers and/or producers will sometimes pick a fave or someone they like and use them. I remember JER liked to use Caroline alot and he also used Julie alot his second run. Higley seemed to like using Caroline last year and Victor. Contrast that with some other writers in recent years and you will see that characters like Maggie did not get all that much at all so it depends on the regime in that regard IMO. I'm thinking Tomlin and/or Whitesell must like Maggie because since they came in we've seen more of her then we have in years.

^^ Ok - we'll have to agree to disagree about the screentime, but I do agree with you that different writers can choose to use a character in different ways. (Though I am torn about whether Maggie's scenes with Chloe are an improvement over greeting guests at a restaurant. I'll have to think about that one.)
