I'm not surprised at all. The character of Quinn was all over the place. There was never a clear vision or path for him.

BF was brought back, I think, as a hedge against James Scott leaving. The talks regarding James' contract broke down and it looked grim. The show still needed a man in that age group and one that could possibly be a villain. But James re-signed and Quinn became superfluous. BF was not disliked but the character was not setting the world on fire. He was an easy one to eliminate and pare down the bloated cast just a bit.

Glad to hear he got other work. Some actors are not so lucky.
I'll bet you're right, Cindy - he was insurance in the event they couldn't get JS to stay. Once he did it would seem they lost interest in the character of Quinn again. It's a shame for the actor - I think he's quite good. But the reinvention (in a few weeks) of going from the pimp that nearly got Chloe killed to working out and being buddy with her two exes was jarring, to say the least.

As others have said, I'm curious to see what will happen with the spa set. Perhaps it will be folded into the cosmetics offices somehow and everyone will forget it was ever a spa?

I wonder if it had anything to do with not being able to re-sign Nadia.

I doubt it. It seems like he's been gone from Days for a while.

No I donít think so it sounds like heís been out of DAYS for awhile, but word of it is just coming out now, He already is doing other projects . NB was just recently asked back for a big story.
Donít think it involved Quinn, he was never a major character.

I wouldn't be so quick to say that. We just heard that Nadia isn't coming back, which means they'd probably been negotiating for a while. In fact, we've been hearing almost since she left that there was a possibility of her returning. As for Bren, I agree it doesn't sound like yesterday was his last day or anything, but that doesn't mean he's been gone for 2 months either. I think he really could have been planned for a Nadia story... right now we have no reason to think that's not the case.

It makes no sense to pair Chloe with Quinn. He was her pimp for pete's sake. Plus they had him lusting after Melanie.

I didn't say romantically... I just meant in a story together. If they were structuring a story around Nadia (highly plausible), maybe they wanted him in it. It's just a theory, but my point is that the timing would line up. I think the idea of him as "JS insurance" is also a good theory, or it could be the EP change.

Make EJ/Abby happen, DAYS!

I know Quinn has never been a huge part of the show, but I can't help but feel bad for Bren Foster! He really seemed like a decent guy! :( It's a shame the show was never able to give him something good to work with - he wasn't a bad actor!

Eh, I'm not losing sleep over it. I barely remembered he was on. when he was on he was basically furniture in my eyes. It looks like he isn't losing sleep over it either because he has other things in the works.

I won't be sad to see Quinn go. He was unnecessary from his first introduction and I could never understand why they would let him go, and then rehire him. He's a pointless, useless character.

It makes me wonder if he was let go because they had planned to bring Chloe back for him to give him a story, and with Nadia saying no, they really had no use for him. If so, I'm glad. I don't want Quinn and Chloe ever revisited.

Assuming he hasn't been gone for very long (clearly from his tweet, it seems he is gone), I think that is the case. Recently, you even had that scene between Brady and Quinn that talked about Chloe after his involvement with her had pretty much been ignored since his return. That seemed like a story anvil. I think they were going to be involved together and that is why the show brought him back. They wanted to redeem him first in case they wanted to pair them romantically. It was clear during his redemption they were chemistry testing him too. They had him in random scenes with Melanie, Gabi, Abigail (he was even with Kate Mansi during the Day of Days doing interviews), and also threw him at others like Nicole, Madison, and Kate. I actually think MarDar probably fought to keep him because they talked about him quite a bit in their early previews. I think what happened was they always felt they would bring Nadia back as Chloe (hence all the talk of her possible return since she left) and they came up with a story involving Quinn so they decided to rest his character for a month, bring him back and slowly redeem him and ease him back into the canvas while also seeing if they could strike gold with his chemistry with other female characters. I'm guessing maybe we may see some Quinn/Billie scenes in March as possibly one more bit of chemistry testing and maybe that combined with the fact their planned story involving Chloe now has to be shelved because talks with Nadia broke down was the final straw. The show clearly needs to clear space and his character became even more expendable once Nadia said no and given he hadn't caught on with anyone else.

Now, given his lack of airtime with Days, I think he was probably already working on a number of projects so that made it easier for when he was let go. They were probably ok with it too knowing full well they wouldn't use him heavily until Nadia returned unless he caught on with someone else. That is why I don't think him already being so busy means he's been gone for awhile. If he had been gone for awhile, I think the news may have leaked out before now. I'm thinking it's been a week or two at most since he was let go.

Clearly, based on spoilers for next week, his story was about to pick up so I'm guessing this may be the setup for whatever story he was going to be involved in with Chloe, assuming that was the case. We'll see if anything is noticeable. Who knows. They may do what they've done with the Jack/Jennifer/Daniel story and toss a bunch of scenes in the trash can now because he's leaving and Chloe isn't coming. Clearly, they had to write in an exit and change gears. It will be interesting to see what kind of exit he gets. Is this the start of the rumored murder mystery? Or, will he just go off to be with his mother? Also, what happens to the spa? I like the set but I would just assumed have the hospital set back or make it into something else.

I liked Bren alot. It's a shame he was wasted. He did work much better as a shady character. They really should've went with the spa being a cover for some sort of scheme.
