They should bring Lisa Trusel back instead. At least have her make sporadic appearances that fit in with her schedule.

I don't see the point of casting Chad's mother, as much as I do like Chad and LOVE Jessica Tuck.

Wow! I LOVE her! I hope that use her for more than being stuck in a teen storyline! She's to talented for that. She was AMAZING on OLTL! The Megan/Viki/Jake storyline was heartbreaking! Kudos Days!

Thanks Ellie! :)

I thought I read Lisa was returning for a few episodes. :shrug:

If I listed the top ten characters this show is missing, Chad's mom wouldn't make the list. Hopefully the character will add something to the show, though.

Great actress, not sure the character is needed though. This might just be a recurring role.

Kind of random, but okay. I like Chad. I'm not much of a fan of his father. Hopefully, his mother will be better.

I have no opinion as to the actress but I don't understand why we need Chad's mother, even for a one-day appearance.

Holy fuck balls. What great casting. Of course, just like Gordon Thompson, it's for a thankless and useless role. Idiots.

FINALLY!

Given Chad has no ties to the canvas, the only other option is to give him some family. Hopefully, we see her more then we see his dad although I would like to see his dad more too. It helps establish the character. If he is going to be on the canvas, this is needed IMO.

I LOVE Jessica Tuck so I'm looking forward to this. I bet it will be recurring though. I can't see it being contract.

Son of a bitch. Cuz yeah, we need to expand the canvas more with families no one gives a shit about while shoving those we do care about to the outskirts of town, never to be heard from again. No offense to Jessica Tuck, who I LOVE (Megan dying absolutely DESTROYED me!), but seriously, I hate this fucking show, Gary fucking Tomlin, and all the Fucktards that be.

/rant.

*hangs head in shame* Sorry 'bout that.

Great casting! However, I don't see this being more than a few appearances. I agree with Amello it will be similar to the stint for Gordon Thomson.

Days must have a story planned for the teens in April. I remember seeing on Chandler Massey's Twitter that April 7th was a big day for the character of Will.

I figured April may be when we start seeing some setup for an actual teen story. Now that Will has been recasted and Gabi has been brought on the show can now go ahead with an actual teen story. They didn't really have the elements in place last summer (that and TS got sick and the teens got reduced airtime compared to what they would normally get in the summer). They still don't have all the elements in place but they have time between now and June. Judging by what we already know and now bringing Chad's mother on, it seems they are really going to start developing the teens FINALLY. Hopefully, what we get is interesting.

I think Tuck will get the Thomson treatment too but I could see her making appearances every now and then beyond like a month-long stint like Chad's father, the DA, does.

Even if the role itself turns out to be a throwaway, it's still SWEET casting! Good job, Days.
