Everything is according to the show. That's how television works.
I don't agree with that. I think that the writers present a set of facts and try to establish character motivation, but I don't think they can ever lock that down fully because there will always be audience interpretation (not to mention actor interpretation- things like Sweeney boasting about trying to inject subtext into Sami/Lucas scenes). Soaps can be even more fun in that sense because the viewer can have a different history with the character than the writers currently giving the character things to do, which has an impact on how the story plays out for people.

I think stories on television are more interactive, like most stories are. Sometimes there's deliberate ambiguity, sometimes not, but the "truth" of a story is always author and audience together, imho. If it were different there'd be nothing to talk about anyways.

Just because a fan has a different "history" doesn't mean that's at all relevant to anything that will ever play out on screen which is ultimately all that really matters. I think that what you're talking about worked when there was more cohesion and stories lasted longer. The way the show has been written the last decade, that just doesn't work. That only works when things are left more open ended and there evidence that they'll revisit it.

Everything on this show is playing it safe (no pun intended). I've seen numerous people on this board and SON take then same circumstances we have and craft amazing dramatic stories.

And just like that Jennifer is off the hook.
Daniel and Rafe are off the hook.
Nicole will be considered a nutter.
EJ will still be trying to manipulate things to 'win' Sami.
Kristen's return will be a dud.
Nicole's baby died for nothing.

*sigh* This show... :shame:
I think everyone, regardless of fanbase affiliation, can agree on this.

So I'm guessing this happens for Sweeps:
-Nicole and Eric sexual tension
-The DiMeras reunite
-A happy, dramatic reunion for Dannifer and Safe
-Nicole loses Daniel as a friend...for a while at least
-Lucas admits he still loves Sami
-The truth about Wabi sex revealed...after WilSon sex.

I hope something more entertaining happens. Again, this is just my theory

Thursday ("Strange Evidence")
Daniel stumbles across some startling evidence; Nicole decides not to press charges against Jennifer.
I swear, every single set up they create to move story along with any dramatic intent is OBLITERATED within a week.

Fuckballs, why even waste money on writers? Let have Days be an improv show.

Is Abe still on this show? I sure hope James Reynolds isn't paid by the episode given how infrequently he has been on since the Daysaster.

The Lucas spoiler should read something like this:

Lucas's interest in dating or falling in love again vanishes while he devotes his free time to worrying about Will's love life.

I was wondering the same thing. That Wabi sex scene gets more air time than Abe.

So he's going to pretend to be a better person by backing off Daniel and Rafe then Kristen tells him that he's doing it all wrong and she suggests another plan that he follows to the tee and Sami begins to get closer and closer until she figures out that he again is playing her...same shit different day, month, year. END THIS SHIT ALREADY.
