Is that how you saw it? For most of EJ's reign of terror, everyone knew exactly what he was doing. No one was dumbed down. The only problem was they didn't have proof. It allowed his reign to continue without him being brought down. I thought it was great.
Yes, that's how I saw it. As far as I'm concerned there's no functional difference between people (1) not being able to figure something out at all and (2) understanding the problem but not being able to figure out a solution. "Dumbed down" in this case means, "incapable of stopping the havoc/incapable of fixing the problem."
Oh, I see! We're just looking at "dumbed down" differently. When I think of a character being dumbed down, I think of what's going on with EJ, and what Lucas just went through. The signs are right there in front of their eyes, but they just buy any lousy excuse from the person doing the deceiving, forget their suspicions, put on a happy smile and look the other way. It's ridiculous.

Sami was dumbed down hugely when she was married to him. The whole vendetta storyline had Sami dumbed down.
There was nothing really for Sami to be dumbed down for by then. EJ wasn't really the evil person he was at one time during his marriage to Sami. By the time EJ and Sami were married, EJ was pretty much trying to come out of the DiMera shadow and be a better man for Sami, but his desire to impress Stefano had him torn.

But when EJ was actually doing all of those horrible things to everyone in Salem, from about October 06 until about May or June 07, everyone knew EJ was doing those things, including Sami. Every bad thing that happened in Salem she blamed EJ for. She was not dumbed down at that point at all.

That's the way I saw it. Sami had met her match, she was on equal footing - I wouldn't call that being dumbed down! Sami knew what she was getting into when she got involved with EJ. She NEEDED him! And Dare I say she WANTED him!

I hope when the baby reveal comes out and Mia/Chad find out that their child is dead, they can't both head off canvas. Is there really any reason to keep Mia and Chad around? Watching Will and Mia is like watching paint dry, and Chad has no point without them.

Good riddance! I was never a big fan of the teen scene anyways.
Iīm pretty sure Mia and Will will stay. Will is Samiīs son so his place is more than secure and he will always need a girlfriend. I quess Mia and Chad could reunite and decide to leave, but I have feeling they will try to secure Chadīs place on the show as well. He is the strongest actor from that group and from his twittering it seems he will be the leading force in the negotiation between EJ and Mia so they must be aware of his abilities. Oh, and he dates Molly and Molly is the darling of the show. They wouldnīt dare to fire her boyfriend. :D

I realize you are most likely being facetious but does that carry some weight?

Poor Mia. She really shouldn't be put in this position of losing Will because of the lies.

Its gonna be even tougher for her when the truth comes out of her baby dying :(

Chad and Mia can both die for all I care. So boring.

Thanks Ellie!
If they were to kill off every character you and the rest of the board find boring, Days would only have like 4 characters left on the cast.

Just sayin'.

That's fine with me!

I'd rather watch four people I enjoy than twenty people I have no interest in. :)

Oh Kenneth, Chad is great. At least aesthetically LOL Taylor Spreitler is the corpse pretending to be alive and failing.

I can tolerate Chad if I have to. Mia just needs to GO.

I fucking hate Mia. I hate how precocious Taylor Spreitler pretends to be and I hate her mouth and I hate her hair. I just want to yank it and cut it and knock the bitch over.

I seriously think Taylor Spreitler takes acting tips from Nadia Bjorlin. Both monotone, both boring as hell.

She's much, much worse than Nadia.

Nadia has actually impressed me this week, nothing emmy worthy obviously but she wasn't monotone as usual.


Taylor just sucks, maybe Chad will confront Mia and tell her to snap outta her sleep walking habit. I hope Chad kills Mia after he learns their baby is dead. The actress and character suck!

I saw potential in Taylor when she first arrived, but unfortunately she has gone downhill instead of improving. She seems so uncomfortable sometimes - perhaps because she isn't quite 16 but that shouldn't be an excuse. Perhaps they should recast or cut their losses and bring on a new character for Will.

At one point in time, EJ was conning every single character in Salem, and now he's playing stupid to the most obvious scheme in Salem history.
And when he was conning everyone, everyone else was dumbed down to make him look brilliant. That's the problem with omniscient, omnipotent villains.
Totally agree with you. Great point. :rockon:

I had heard at one point that TPTB don't like the pairing of Mia and Chad due to the age difference, so Chad may be leaving in February. That is not for sure, tho.
