Speaking of Twitter, people are asking why we are tweeting spoilers. I've been doing it all along, why is it suddenly "not allowed?"
I don't think the actors should be allowed to post spoiler pics like some of them have, that's all.
I think it's too late for that now, though. Twitter has become an essential part of PR, and with soaps already not "changing with the times", they need as much of a boost as they can get. Further, I think Twitter is one of the few platforms thats keeping the show connected to a younger demo. Maybe they can't watch the show, but they're still in the loop with exposure to the brand.

It's hard to keep a lid on things with twitter, but at the same time, I think DAYS would be so stupid to let go of the marketing/PR leverage this gives them.
Perhaps, I'm just tired of the show trying to pander to young viewers all the time.
I understand appealing to and reaching out to young fans but they should not be the only fans you reach out too. You need audiences of all ages to tune in and, thankfully, Days seems to be doing that with their ratings surge this year. I also think bringing back characters like Carly, Justin, Vivian, and now Anna while also using Kate, Stefano, Victor, Maggie, Bo, and Hope alot more helps too.

Just catching up with the thread and reading prevuze. I have to say, I think the show is throwing some major red herrings at us. I don't think it's going to be the obvious suspects. We're seeing EJ making questionable phone calls, Stefano acting strange, and the phone call from Anna at the same time Stefano's on the phone......it just makes me think it won't be either of them. What I think would be great would be if they could have Tony behind it all. I know, I know we saw him die, but this is Days for crying out loud. We haven't had a back from the dead story all year have we?? I'm not saying that it will happen, but that would be best case scenario for me. Tony's revenge on Stefano and EJ.

I seriously think that whoever is working with Anna, or Anna is working for, will be someone we haven't even suspected.......

Anna is working with SAMI.

1. Sami wanted EJ to have no part in raising "their daughter". What better way than to have the child stolen away to Europe by Anna to be raised by ?Carrie?.
2. Sami has been the calm, level-headed one in the Cleveland hospital, not going BSC on Nicole....AND quite eagerly tossing blame/suspicion onto Stefano.
3. Roman suddenly, inexplicably, without invite, pops up in Cleveland "to run interference" with the Cleveland PD....and maybe to help Anna, with whom he had been carousing during the Santeen Year before Anna Fredericks Brady DiMera DiMera discovered Tony was exiled on an island.

Pure speculation.
Major twist-worthiness.

Well since Sydney is one of the DiMera's, what better way to get back at them, then by taking one of their own.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I wish they would do this more often. To bad they did this article, it would have been more fun to find out while watching the episodes like the good old days. But even if they hadn't done this article that stupid canadian site would have posted about it the day before. TPTB should not let Days air one day earlier like that.
I guess I don't find the story particularly compelling when we learn about it primarily through flashbacks or retconned dialogue. I'd prefer that we had an inkling of numerous suspects that had been boiling long term. If indeed Anna kidnapped Sydney to get back at Stefano it falls flat for me. There are plenty of ways for her to get back at him, this one just seems contrived to me.

From your name and picture of Santo I thought you liked when a storyline was explained through flashbacks?
Actually I just love the pornstache.

:cheer: DAYS definitely pulled the wool over everyone's eyes with this one. I wouldn't have imagined that they would have been savvy enough to think this deep. Bravo!

I never would have guessed it was Anna. I thought it was going to wind up being Kate. Maybe she's the one Anna is working with.

By the way, when I mentioned the complaints about the spoilers being posted on Twitter, I was talked about other Twitter users, not you guys.

That would be phenomenal. Unfortunately, that Sami is long-dead.

ANNA?

Really?

I really am interested in seeing how she is involved in all of this. I can't imagine her working with Stefano.

I LOVE that it's Anna! It IS f-ing brilliant! Good job, Days! I can't wait to figure out why she's doing this.

I highly doubt that any of these tweet pictures or spoilers get posted, shared, or even released to Soap Opera Digest until they have been approved by the top brass.

Perhaps they wanted to keep Anna's identity under wraps for a while and then start leaking it in time to make people watch the reveal. I don't think Casey, Molly, and the others say much without first knowing what they can get away with saying. Remember, as much as we speculate, we don't know what goes on behind those studio doors. We just think we do. :-)

That actually doesn't sound bad if she was working with Sami. Puts a damper on my Ejami but at least theres some spark of brain power in this one and it would be nice to see Scami again.

Thanks, IMiss for the scoop on Anna.

Oh please. You mean to tell me you've never posted about how boring the show sounds based on the weekly spoilers and whatnot? I know for a fact that you have because I've seen it with my own eyes. When it comes to pre-judging things before they actually air, you're just as guilty as the rest of us for doing it.

Either way, your holier-than-thou attitude and your rude comments to other posters are uncalled for.
Weekly spoilers are different. They are more detailed. This article only said Anna is the kidnapper. We still don't know how or why she did it.

This all goes back to spoilers doing more damage to the show.
so then your saying that you dont want to know sneak peeks or spoilers???
if so, then why are you here?

the other day E.J. was talking about Tony with Stephano and he said something like my brother knew what he was doing when he cut all his ties with you, or something to that effect. Maybe, after seeing how being part of Stephano's life can ruin one's own, he enlisted the help of Anna who also knows and believes the same thing, to rescue Sydney from such a life. An additional motivation would be to get Samantha back by impressing her with the fact that he is serious about this. He may have an evil plan to break up Samantha and dumb-ass, protect Sydney from the DiMera's and try to get Samantha back all rolled into one plan which will bite him in the ass of course. But I can totally see Anna helping Tony's brother try to get his shot at happiness, however misguided.

I can't figure out how or why to make it work but what if Anna's working with Rafe?

I'm sure she's working with EJ <- pure speculation I haven't see any spoilers.

I just want to know why and how long before Tony's back. <- wishful thinking.

Please no.

I don't need to see Tony until there's a hint that the character may be written out and then things get all super-hammy so that they can write his ass back in yet again saying that the previous Tony was really Andre.

Just...no.

^Exactly, it just makes much more sense if EJ was the one to bring in Anna. I wonder when he decided to call her up? It would be interesting to find out! (Funny but isnt Sydney's middle name Anne?)

Making Tony..alive....AGAIN....is just lame and wouldnt tie into the plot...and this regime's all into what makes the plot work!

I'm over it.

Tony's annoying and cheesy anyway. What could have been a great character..meh. Well I'm sure he was great 'back in the day', but from what I've seen in recent years? I'll pass.
