Fantastic! I was worried that with Stephanie out of town it would be a while before we saw Kayla again.
Isn't Stephanie still in Salem lol?
She is? Did they not give her a proper exit?

I shouldn't be surprised.
Nope. Her last scene was telling Dario that Melanie was a bad person. I assume she's upstairs at the pub or something, because they never said she left town.
Poor Stephanie, she's either upstairs with Tom Horton Jr. or out at the mailbox with Don Craig :hmmph:

But I don't think it's a matter of being pigeon-holed as Steve's wife or breaking them up offscreen. I don't see why those are the only options. There are lots of things to do with the character that don't have to be about who she's paired off with. Whether they use some excuse that Steve could come with her to visit or have him in the next room, the only limits placed on the character by that is that she can't get involved romantically with somebody else. She can still be a friend, sibling, daugher, mother (if Stephanie were recast), aunt, doctor, etc. She's not going to drive the story that way, but she can still be a strong supporting character with some good material to work with.

They did it with Jennifer before she got involved with Dr. Dan. She was helping Hope, and Carly, dealing with her daughter, etc. And that was under a much suckier writer. I think they can do something similar for Kayla's recurring appearances.
I don't think they'll break them up, but imo people are actually giving the writers credit by suggesting they will. We've had so many years of "Mickey's in the other room" that I think people are hoping the writers will actually not hide people (or plots!) offscreen. Nevertheless I agree with you that it's entirely conceivable that Kayla could come for Christmas (or whatever) without Steve.

Yeah, I don't get the call to have her split from Steve. She could be just like Adrienne circa 2007. Living in Salem with her entire family, but we just don't see Steve. A little annoying, I guess, but unless there's drama and a story to play, its silly. It clearly didn't work for Justin and Adrienne and its hard to compare it to J/J since they are contract. Plus, both of them have a history of constant break-ups. There's no precedent, beyond them killing Steve off again. I agree that the 15-year time could have created a rift, I just don't see it actually being played.
Maybe it's me, but I hate those "Oh, they're here, they're just in the other room!" things. I thought it awkward and weird with Mickey and with Justin as well. I know with Mickey I found it a little insulting that they thought his was a character so superfluous that we could have Maggie always saying he's out of town and we wouldn't notice he was gone. It's just all such a stupid charade, and having a family that's in town that Kayla can't even interact with would be extremely limiting.

I'd like Kayla back full time, but not if it has to be in that. Once you get there, what's the point? Bope, Jarlena, J&J - all have broken up before and gotten back together. I don't see why Steve and Kayla can't do the same, since obviously when/if SN becomes available they'd obviously bring him back and pair them up again. It'd be one thing if SN was available and they just didn't want to bring him back, but if the reason Steve's not on the show is that he can't be, I wouldn't begrudge MBE the work or Kayla the opportunity to be in Salem again. I don't think she needs to be pigeon-holed into Steve's wife or bust.

With her recurring appearances? Sure, absolutely they could. I just think they can do better than recurring appearances. Breaking Steve and Kayla up would only become necessary if they brought Mary Beth Evans back as a full-time contract player (or even a recurring character who recurred year-round as Victor, Justin and Adrienne all are) which I'd like to see happen. The impossibility of having Steve on the show shouldn't keep us from being able to see Kayla full-time.

If they did that, if Kayla's onscreen for any length of time, it would bring up questions about why Steve isn't there too. So, believably, it would have to come down to them breaking them up or else having Steve always in the kitchen, and I just think the former is the better of the two options with the latter being a little stupid/insulting.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep

I do think that Steph's kind of a lucky girl. she's probably upstairs at the pub never to show her face again, it could be worse. Remember that Jan Spears is still in a coma LOL after all these years. Poor Jan.

Thanks for the info. So I wonder if we actually get to see Joey? I wonder how old they'll make him, he should be about 3 but knowing this show they'll make him older.

Me too Ellie, I hope she's ok.

I hope Jack/Adreinne/Kayla have some scenes together, or just Jack/Kayla.

Killing myself slowly

AWESOME NEWS! I love Mary Beth Evans...plus DAYS needs to have one of the original Brady sisters on canvas.

Too bad SN is at Y&R because no doubt they would have been using him too.

VERY happy DAYS is going to keep using her on recurring status.

Hell yeah! I love me some Kayla and MBE! Hope it is recurring status that will lead to MORE frequent appearances. She needs to be in Salem more, whether it's being a sibling, SIL, mom, daughter, friend, competent doctor, you name it. I NEED to see me some Kayla, now if only we can get Kimber back on a regular basis too, make Josh T back into Chris K who runs the pub and then bring back Wayne to play Roman and all will be right in the world... It's not a totally impossible dream! ;) :D

With the blurb from SOD, it sounds like something may be up with Caroline.

I miss Stephen Nichols and I'm waiting for him to leave Y&R and go back to where he belongs; here in Salem.

I'm very excited about MBE returning but it does make me wonder what's wrong with Caroline. I don't want another sad Christmas.

Peggy McCay is scheduled to attend Day of Days. If she was having health problems, I could see her not being there but it doesn't appear that is the case.

However, it does look like Caroline may have some more health issues coming up.

She was scheduled to attend the book signing in Chicago but canceled at the last minute. I certainly hope she's alright, but if Kayla is being positioned to take over the pub, I am worried.

If there was anything wrong with Peggy I doubt they would plan stuff with Caroline and Kayla several months ahead.
