This is a crazy thought-- how about hiring -- I don't know-- a HORTON or a KIRIAKIS!! I'm sure that there's someone in these families that could do as a college professor-- just no more Brady's!! There's enough of them that are back!

I hope the professor is a totally new person in Salem. We need some fresh non-related characters. Think about it, if everyone in town in a Horton, Brady or Kiriakis, no one can date anyone. Blood lines are running very close together and mixed with most of everyone on DAYS right now

Is that really true? Say you brought in an Andrew Donovan or Rex Brady as the professor in the late 20s-40 bracket. Other than Sami and Carrie (who is in a relationship), who would that character be barred from dating? There is no blood ties to Nicole, Madison, or Melanie (assuming she remains in the older category). If Chloe returns or a non-related women is added, there would still be options. And if the professor is a male Horton or Kiriakis, there should be no blood ties at all to any of the characters in that age group.

As for a female character, what men are in that age group? Rafe, EJ, Brady, Daniel (well he is at the top-end of the group), Austin, and Quinn. Those characters have no blood ties to any Hortons or Kiriakisis, and Brady's ties to the Bradys are pretty distant. Since Carrie and Sami already are in that group, it could really use a female Horton. Sarah is the logical choice since she was around Carrie's age in canon and would be far preferable than the show adding another heretofore unknown Horton.

As for adding a Kiriakis as a professor, I'm not so sure about that. A new Kiriakis would have to be someone who emerges from the woodwork, some unknown relative that we never heard about before. The only other option would be for the professor to be one of Sonny's brothers, but that is problematic because: (1) the brothers are all pretty close in age; and (2) it would create the awkward situation of Sonny taking classes from his brother.

With Eric Winter's moderate success in Primetime / Film, though I loved him as Rex (and moreso Alexis Thorpe as Cassie) it would be a nice surprise if this professor dude does end up being a recast Rex Brady, hopefully leading to a retcon of Roman and Kate NOT being his and Cassie's parents.

Either way, I think it's time one of the 20 somethings has a torrid affair with a teacher. Could be Gabi, seeing how she clearly wants to be railed on a daily basis. :)

Its just my opinion, but I still think it wouldn't hurt to have this character a non-related one. It just seems most everyone is related to everyone somewhere on their family tree. Maybe Andrew Donovan would be okay, as he is only related to the Brady's. I never liked Rex. I would like to erase him and Cassie from memory completely LOL

I guess what I'm saying is hire someone else from another family besides the Brady's!! If they hire a new character, fine but IMHO there's more than enough Brady's.

I was bored, so I made a list of where everyone fits with each of the four main families either through biological relation or marriage. Daniel and Melanie I put in the Kiriakis range because Victor is Daniel's godson. Though with Melanie's relationship with Maggie they could, unfortunately, fit in with the Hortons.

Double the amount of Brady's to the Horton's! (8 regular Horton Family Members---16 Brady Family Members--14 DiMera Family Members--10 Kiriakis) All I'm saying is no more Brady Family Members!! :)

And if you only make is biological relations and exclude children, there are only FOUR Hortons (Hope, Jennifer, Abby and Will) on canvas. And we all know Hope / Will are much more Bradys anyway. Sad, sad, sad.

Yep, it figures my two favorite families are underrepresented. Plus, Bo and Hope are a lot more Brady than Horton or Kiriakis. We rarely get Bo/Victor scenes anymore, and I barely count Doug and Julie because we so rarely see them.

Still waiting for Sarah Horton casting news...

But if you do the same for the Bradys, it's just Roman, Carrie, Sami, and Will. (And I guess John, but I hate that rewrite. And it puts him as much in DiMera camp as the Bradys.)

I want to see some more Hortons, but I'd prefer they pick up some of the stories that were dropped over the last few years. Jeremy and Nick could both still be promising characters, and they have some interesting history now on the show.

Instead of casting for a professor, they should have brought BD back instead, I rather watch BD/Lucas then another mindless characters I could give a shit about.

Don't forget to add Jack Deveraux to the Horton list.
I think it's playing a little fast-and-loose by including someone like Gabi as a Brady. She's as much a Brady as Kayla is a Horton or Jack is a Kiriakis (due to who their siblings have married).

In any event, I think the bigger picture is to look at the various age groupings. There are a lot of Bradys in the "vets" (over-40) and young children group, but in the groups that are often the focus of major stories -- the 20-40 group, there are very few Bradys. The only biological ones are Sami and Carrie in the 25-40 group and Will in the college-age group.

Moreover, with respect to adding more Kiriakis and Horton members, the show is somewhat limited in its options. Unlike the Bradys, who have a slew of canon characters who could fit in the 20-40 group, the Hortons just don't have the same canon. Other than Lucas, Sarah and Jeremy, what canon characters fit into that younger group? So to add Hortons to those age groups, the show would have to bring in previously unknown Hortons like Nathan, who, IMO, audiences generally don't find as compelling as characters that they saw as children and that have established connections to the core families.

The same problem exists for the Kiriakis family. To bring in new Kiriakis family members in the 20-40 age groups, the show has limited options. Other than Justin's and Adrienne's other sons, any new Kiriakis kids would have to be surprise additions to the family tree or the children of previously unmentioned Kiriakis nieces and nephews.

I think him including Gabi in with the Bradys was more about which family she interacts with most. Which family we'll probably see her around during the holidays. That sort of thing. I would consider Gabi and honorary Brady.
