If Nick was made to be against gays, wouldn't Gabi have a big problem with it like she did Tee? And isn't it mostly the straight men who are doing the raping in prison? And I don't think this show should ever do another rape storyline considering they don't treat rape like the horrendous crime it is. They treat it like it's something you just laugh and shake hands about and your rapist promises you that it'll never happen again. And of course a girl has to consider dating him and having a romance with him because who knows, this rapist could be the man of your dreams and who gets you like no one else.
The bolded part- I'm a little bothered by the idea that a guy getting raped by another guy would be a reason for homophobia, because I'm not sure what the two concepts naturally have to do with each other. And I'd really rather Days not even try to touch that, or to forge that connection for the audience (or play into audience perceptions that somehow rape and homosexuality are connected).

But I'm biased, because I just want them to move the fuck on and explore Will as a character who happens to be gay, which on this show means he should be in a bizarre, annoying love triangle. I get that homophobia exists and all that, but I don't like it built into my escapist entertainment.
You bring up a good point. With Will and Sonny being gay, I don't like the idea either of Nick being raped in prison because that wouldn't bode well for the gay storyline. It would actually make some fans more hesitant to accept a gay couple. I'd rather just see Nick not be so much homophobic but instead think that Will led Gabi on. He may not understand the true process of a person coming out and how Will never intentionally tried to lead Gabi on. That would probably fit into a possible baby story. Maybe Nick also feels that a baby is better off with a mom and dad vs. a mom/dad part of the time and dad/dad the other part of the time, especially since he may feel Will is still not 100% out or something?That doesn't necessarily make a person homophobic (even though I don't agree at all with that logic). I could see Nick thinking it's best for Gabi not to tell Will that she is pregnant and instead he offers to pretend he is the father and Gabi goes along with it.

I also love Tad and the actor that plays him. It's too bad he was only brought back short term. I would have much rather seen Cameron not recasted and him tried with Abby. I think they could have potentially been an interesting pairing if they had chemistry.

I think it might be an interesting conflict -- old Nick wasn't homophobic, but he's been so well-adjusted coming out of prison that I would like to see a more lingering ways the experience affected him. And separating out the idea that being raped has nothing to do with actual gay people (even ones you're related to) is an emotionally complicated journey.

Make EJ/Abby happen, DAYS!

I'm glad to see more people say they want to see more of Tad! I've been feeling this way too - I would even go as far as saying the actor is much better than some of the show's regulars.

Shocked Lucas is making this promo. Wonder how he fits into it? He's listed near Will/Sonny so he probably fits in there somehow.

Why am I thinking during this promo Will and Sonny will be having sex and at the same time Gabi finds out she is pregnant and Nick telling her he will pretend he's the father? I actually think it could be a good story if it plays out close to that. They all need some interesting conflict.

I see the triangles probably continue to play into sweeps with Rafe/EJ/Sami and Nicole/Jen/Daniel...

Figures the promo on stories/characters (minus Sonny, I'm sure he's being used to prop someone else. ) I could careless about. November sweeps sounds boring and stupid. The same garbage for weeks now.

I will happy to skip this crapfest.

I hate this show right now.

That is true. Normally though she mentions the characters on twitter as they are clumped together in the promos. But yeah who knows.

Baby will come between Wilson. William's all attention will be on the baby, I'm sure about that. I love William, but I can't take it anymore. ALL IS ABOUT WILLIAM. I'm tired of that. I want Sonny to be happy. Sonny all the time think about others and never think about himself.

I think a baby more than anything else gives Sonny the best shot at airtime. I've come to accept that Sonny will never be treated on equal ground as Will nor any of the other young characters and I can't figure out why :shrug: . Though, really the last mont has been pretty even between Sonny and Will with Sonny sometimes getting more dialogue then him plus Will has finally been the one in Sonny's world with his career and not the other way around. The baby story could be like OLTL where it's Sonny that figures it out that Will is the father and Will has no idea about it.

Take a look at those faces, and memorize them. Everytime that EJ wears that stupid pink shirt and gray suit, or Marlena Evans Black, paragon of high style, wears a track suit, or Lucas wears a polo shirt to a formal event, those are the people you need to blame.

Well, the guy on the right explained a lot about EJ. But, seriously, they look good in that photo. So, what goes wrong on the set of this show?

Sonny is half Johnson. That kills 50% of his screentime and he was named after Uncle Jack so there goes his other 50%.

And Sonny looks great in his scenes on Monday. I am just hoping Wilson get some angst and tension and storyline. I like the idea of Gabi finding out she's knocked up while elsewhere Wilson are in bed, and I love the idea that Sonny figures things out before Will does.

Aren't they suppose to put on their most exciting stories for sweeps? So we're suppose to see a lot more exciting stories than we've seen these last few weeks? Somehow I doubt it. It'll be the same old same old. The only thing exciting they could do would be to have Nicole's baby still alive and someone has him. But they'll just give us another strong dose of Sami using EJ to piss off Rafe. And where in the world is the spoiler about the baby being buried? I guess they just threw him out with yesterday's trash.

CM won the Emmy, he's the star of the younger set.

How do you see storyline after a child is born? You don't think that everything will be about Gabi & William, less about William & Sonny. Maybe Gabi dies after giving birth to baby? :)

I like the idea only if it's after the fact and not during. At least let Will and Sonny be uninterrupted during :lol: . But afterward it would be very soapy as they are happy in lying in bed afterward that Gabi finds out she's got a little bund of joy bun in the oven.

La Laa, just going by OLTL Kyle had a big role in the baby story and I kind of see Sonny as Kyle and the story possibly playing out similar. Plus, the last month we've at least seen Sonny more as his own character with his career and his family so maybe they were just trying to reestablish him. Am I giving the show too much the benefit of the doubt? Probably but we shall see. Sonny does have a lot of air dates in Nov and Dec where he's on at least half each month so as long as he's not just pouring coffee he has to have stuff coming up...

Overall I'm excited to see the promo for the WilSon/Nabi stuff and the Kristen stuff. I am actually quite intrigued by Kristen/Brady. I am hoping maybe she can help me be interested in him because I just can't get into Brady. I'd welcome Kyle Lowder back in a heartbeat, especially if Nadia was sticking around. Beyond that I don't care much about either triangle.
