I really don't think Shawn Christian is going anywhere.
They are trying their best to write this as a love story..even Daniel getting Kayla's mark of approval.

I like this SL a lot better than I ever thought I would.
The ratings are holding steady as well.

Well, I GUESS if/when Chloe/Lucas break up, they could move Lucas into Sami's new storyline, and then give Chloe/Dan something else to do.

But I don't see it going down like that. I think Dan will be gone soon.


It's crazy I can now see why they brought on Rafe. Lucas is doing well in his own story and so is Dattilo. I also think that EJ/Sami/Lucas was getting really old. I just wish they brought on someone else than Galen. I just see Luis when I see him.

With the way Shawn is actively promoting the story and the amount of airtime it gets I think he wants to stay. I mean, reading the spoilers it almost looks like Lucas (and Kate) will be interlopers in the Dan/Chloe lovestory.

Sorry bub, I'm not tuning in for Bope, or Caroline and Maggie.
Would you tune in for anyone except Deidre?

Melvin leaving could be a good thing. I hope it frees up some mula.
Whatever money it freed up, Corday blew on T-shirts.

Wow, this is all that special Corday-brand genius in one shot. Why the man continues to give interviews is beyond me.

I'm loving the T-shirts idea. If morale was crappy at my job and my boss said everyone was just "spokes on a wheel" and can be replaced, and people who worked there since forever were fired, and we had a budget of like $5 per year, I would TOTALLY feel better if given a t-shirt.
LMAO!!! :roflol:

I agree. Nadia and Shawn also have an appearance together at a Kentucky Auto-Show next week-end (and it's just them from Days).
Why would TPTB send them out together promoting their story if he is leaving??
Doesn't make much sense to me.

The sad fact is that's probably true, the shirt printer probably milked Corday for all he or she could too......

Donīt think thatīs true at all. The writing for Morgan and Phillip got suddenly much better the week or so when we saw the episodes written by Scott and his "writers." They finally acknowledged Morgan more than an afterthought and there was the potential conflict between her and Kate.

Next, Scott is fired, Higley gots the power and Morgan suddenly disappears for almost two weeks before she is finally written out. And Phillip seems to be in love with Chloe again.

And there is the Olympic fantasy again written by Higley, where Morgan didnīt appear at all and Phillip had scenes with Chloe which was really weird as Phillip/Morgan relationship just started heating up and it was weird the show didnīt use the story to promote their love more.

I was a fan of Phillip/Morgan, but even when they finally got together the writing was really awfull for them. Everything was so rushed and they never even attempted to turn Morgan into an important part of the canvas, she always stuck out. I think that would hardly happen if they were Higleyīs favorites.
Yep, I would totally agree with you. There isn't a doubt in my mind that the actress playing Morgan was Scott's "pet," and he forced Higley to put Philip and Morgan together. Because the second that Higley was free of Scott, the very first thing she did was to break up Phorgan, have Morgan sent off canvas permanently and take steps toward putting Phloe back together. When Higley took over from Hogan, she started writing sexual tension between Phloe and had them heating things up at the plane crash, which I don't think Hogan intended to do - it seems obvious from statements made that he planned on a very, very long quadrangle with Shelle and Phloe.

I can only assume then that Tomlin is the one who put a kibosh on Phloe this go round. The good Phloe we've gotten in the past I think has been due to Higley.

Gee, cuz I'd tune in if J&M were still on the show. Bope and Maggie, Victor and Caroline don't interest me. Just like you wouldn't tune in for something you don't like, duh.

Why does everyone think that if two stars show up together that it's Days who is doing the promoting?

Having been to many, many Days appearances, it's been my experience that the coordinator of the event will invite specific actors or pairings. Days doesn't dictate to them who will/won't come, the coordinator calls Days to get the stars they want. So maybe someone's wife from the Kentucky Auto Show is a big Dan/Chloe fan. Or maybe NB and SC were the only ones free that weekend. Or someone watched a few minutes of the show and decided the porn couple was the couple to invite. It's impossible to tell. The event itself is the one paying NB and SC - they're not paying Days and Days doesn't get much of a say in their actors going out to do things like this on the weekends as a way to earn some extra income (unless they're filming on a Saturday, which has happened).

I think it means very little when two stars show up together at a paying job like this one, at least as far as Days is concerned.

Of course he wants to stay.

He's getting paid thousands and thousands of dollars to hop from bed to bed with every attractive female on the show. It's every hot-blooded straight man's dream.

HI, guys! First Post - I had to sign up!!

All this stuff by the writers is making me sick.
As a long-time Phloe fan and now (somehow) a Danloe fan, I find it appalling that Lucas and Chloe ever slept together to begin with. They just shouldn't have gone there. And ever since Daniel came into her orbit, she "loves" Lucas...bull! She never wanted to settle down..now "she loves the family she has with Lucas -he is her night-in-shining armor :puke: )
We have Philip, we have Brady, and now we have Daniel and she is with LUCAS??
These writers do not want to take the time to invest in a long-term story or even draw from the past.
Brady comes back and it's almost like he never knew Chloe. Philip admits he loves her and then they scrap that for LuClo and Stephanie? It is so wishy-washy. Really, I can't stand it. Now I invest in Danloe (like an idiot) and she is torn..STILL??
Uggh...why do I bother? This story just likes to torture its fanbase.

And why no mention of Shawn Christian, Corday? Is he staying or not??
what a great great post!! it totally makes no sense. we get philip telling morgan and chelsea that he is in love with chloe and dropped. we get brady coming back and there is two scenes with them, if that many. they sit at a table and you wouldnt know that these two shared a beautiful love story. and then lucas which was just a stupid idea, still is..talk about zero chemistry. and, now i too find daniel and chloe hotter than hot...but where is the triangle. you need to be invested in both sides and sorry but her and lucas are just nothing together. could have had a great triangle with either philip or brady. but we need writers that will invest in telling a story, is it even possible?

Very good point. I think BB, RM and DB are slated to appear at the charity event Samantha's friends next month. Now that RM is leaving and BB is already gone, I doubt Days had little to do with who goes to such things, especially charity events.

I think you're right. I always thought it was interesting that even though Higley supposedly dislikes Nadia and/or Chloe, the best Phloe stuff since Chloe's return came during the plane crash time frame. There's not a doubt in my mind that Ed Scott was the one pushing KR and I don't think it's a coincidence she got fired right after he did--he must have been her only champion on the set (I'm not suggesting anything inappropriate, incidentally). Not only is she fired rather quickly after Scott's departure, her character's exit was what some might consider unnecessarily humiliating (as I loathed Phorgan, I personally didn't mind it a bit).

I would mention too that it always seemed to me like Higley dragged her feet with Phorgan and it was unromantic even by her standards. We never heard Philip tell her out loud he loved her, though we were supposed to infer that, which is odd in and of itself. They never got close to going to bed that I recall--though I did FF a lot--which is positively mysterious compared to how quickly Philip and Stephanie have hit the sheets, though they've not yet sealed the deal.

It's odd that direction was changed again so suddenly, when it so clearly looked like a Phloe revisit was in the works. JKJ was even quoted about Tomlin liking the Phloe chemistry, Philip can't deny being in love with Chloe, Nicole props them in a scene at Chez Rouge and then that all was dropped with no explanation.
