Hmm. I like this idea that we should applaud Dan for still having compassion in the face of everything that almost happened (but didn't) for a woman who actually lost pretty much everything.

It's so delightfully twisted and fucked up that it can't possibly be a serious attempt at creating a heroic character. It has to be a joke. And looking at it that way, it's almost...like the writers are so pissed off at what they can't create (Bo, John) they intentionally design these bizarre caricatures (Rafe, Dan).

It's like Days is this explosion of bitterness, failed dreams. There's something interesting about that.
Nope, they are attempting to create Saint Daniel.
And as he's a DOCTOR, why didn't he KNOW that Nicole's baby was dead? He kept repeating during the daysaster that her baby was ok. So what gives? Admittedly he goes away for a day and the substitute doctor comes in to tell Nicole her baby is dead but this just reeks.

Heaping more shame on top of Nicole's character when its bad enough she LOST THE BABY she wanted so badly and for Saint Daniel to be point man in front of a group of people all staring at Nicole as he charges her that she knew the baby was dead! Why didn't Daniel know the baby was dead? How great a freaking doctor is he that he can't tell what's going on? GMAFB.

I can't stand Daniel and for him to go and be with Jen who just lost Jack is awful. Really really awful. Jen is so needy she's just ready for Daniel? Its been August she lost Jack. Its November. That's the quickest mourning period I've ever seen let alone to fall madly in love with Daniel to boot.
Saint Daniel really has to be the worst doctor in history, first he gropes every female patient he has. Can't name one female patient he hasn't had sex with. Secondly this is the second woman in his life in Salem that he's cared for and DID NOT see the signs of depression or them going suicidal, guess he's too busy going to the next patient to see signs from the last.

If they think this is what makes him look good they are sadly mistaken, maybe Tomlin thought he could redeem Daniel's lack of empathy for Chloe by giving it to Nicole BUT if that is what he's doing as usual he's failed miserably.

Gone, But Not Forgotten!

But don't forget, Daniel's character had a reboot last January, where he magically disappears to do some soul searching and get over Jen, & returns after a 3 week hiatus and the fans are suppose to love him for the new guy he has become. Stupid, but true. Somehow TPTB don't have time to recreate & redeem characters on canvas anymore, so they backburn them and bring the them out with insta new personalities we are suppose to embrace and love.

As for Jennifer... she never got over grieving losing Daniel in the first place. LOL!!!! I know it's just so damn awful.... but that is how's it's shaking down. I just wonder how long she'll hold out on him? You know for 'sex'... that'll really get the board going. In my mind, I neatly tucked MA's Jack appearance on DAYS, away in my mind, as just a blip on canvas that should have never happened. I couldn't even really enjoy his stint on screen with all the background crap that was happening over the SL, etc.

But they didn't really rehabilitate Daniel, did they? I mean, they had this big fanfare of a goodbye scene with much weeping and wailing from Maggie, Melanie, and Jennifer for Daniel to go off and do some surfing in Australia. (He joked about going on a walkabout -- something everyone only thought Jack was doing while he was being tortured in Afghanistan).

After three weeks, Daniel came back from his surfing trip, but other than to coldly tell Jennifer he had moved on, we didn't really see much change in him. We saw no evidence of deep reflection. We didn't see him broken-hearted. We didn't see him tirelessly saving lives or doing good deeds. Heck, we saw no evidence of shaky hands anymore.

No, what we saw is that he immediately got involved with Nicole's schemes. He broke laws by becoming an accessory after the fact to the DNA test results switch. He broke ethics codes (again) by getting busy with his pregnant patient Nicole on his desk.He cancelled appointments with other patients and re-arranged his schedule to spend time with Nicole. In fact, he was so busy getting it on with Nicole that he didn't even notice his daughter was kidnapped. But then, as soon as he heard Jennifer was available, he dropped Nicole like a used tissue (or he would have if she hadn't become inexplicably obsessed with him.) What kind of character rehabilitation is that? I mean, if they'd decided to deliberately make him a sleazy, corrupt doctor, that would be one thing, but, no, the show is still maintaining that he's a perfect, amazing, self-sacrificing, compassionate, great doctor/person.

The cognitive dissonance it takes to try to deal with this character makes my head hurt. I would just ignore him completely if only they would get him away from Jennifer or anyone else for which I have some vestigial interest left.

I actually liked Daniel BUT only when he was with Chloe, before that with Chelsea it felt pervy, with Kate it felt oblicatoury, with Chloe they actually showed both side more feelings as angst about the hurt they were causing. But of course Kate became the villian and poor Lucas was a character outside of his own storyline. In the midst of Danloe though Daniel made a point of telling Chloe numerous times how he felt about Nicole, he even went so far as to jump Nicole's shit when she and Jennifer were agruing about the election. So for the writing of him and Nicole's freindship turned sex partner was out of the blue and completely unbeleivable to any viewer. He was also the one showing attachment signs with Rafe as the interloper, but then Jenn's free and he does this 180 makes the character and the audience again remember the slime ball he basically has always been. He's made his relationship with Nicole more about obligation and feeling sorry for her than about any kind of love even on a friendship level.

The writers have even made him made it worse by having everyone calling Nicole a manipulative whore, while Daniel instead of saying she's not like that all he says is maybe we're alot alike. Sorry as usual the writing sucks as to what the viewers perceive as happening and what the writers intentions may be. :tumbleweed:

If only we could bring Jack back to life, so I'd have the satisfaction of watching him dump Jennifer and get involved with a new lady, while she's stuck with Dr Dirt Bag.

What I hate about Daniel is everyone always talking about what a good man he is, and what a good doctor he is. Puh-Lease!!! The man has slept with just about every female patient he has had. He had an affair with Chloe, and was so callous about it to Lucas. Then he finds out she made one mistake and he callously dumps her and the baby he raised as his own from birth. Please stop telling me what a good man he is!!! :frustration: He, along with the equally pimped podSami is the reason I can no longer watch this show. I get hit over the head with all of heavy handed hints about who I should root for. No thank you, I do not want to watch a show where every man wants Sami for some inexplicable reason and women are killing themselves over the greasy orange perverted doctor.

:shrug: Was there any female patient that he has had that he didn't screw????? :'( Oops I forgot Melanie, well thank goodness for that because she ended up his daughter. :blink: But other than that I think he has slept with everyone else he's treated. Female that is.... ;)

Amendment . As soon as he heard Nicole wasn't able to have sex any more due to her pregnancy and that Jennifer was available.

I don;t know why they threw that little plot development in there all it did was make Dr Dan look worse.
If he was going to move on with Jen anyway why did we need the Dr telling Nicole no more sex?

Well, as far as we know, he didn't sleep with Bo either. :) Of course, he supposedly saved Bo's life, too, but we didn't see Bo running around for months and obsessing about saving Daniel from himself and from the evil Nicole. In fact, it's absurd to think about it, isn't it?

Yeah, IIRC, Daniel was just about to sleep with Chelsea (while she was in her hospital gown?) when Chelsea found out about him and her grandmother Kate and put a halt to things. As you say, it wasn't for the lack of trying on Daniel's part.

As for other patients Dr. Dan hasn't slept with, there was that reference back in January 2012 to a patient who was a friend of Maggie's. She was supposed to undergo surgery for a breast tumor, but Dr. Dan had to cancel it because of his shaky hands. I remember when Maggie mentioned her friend's ailment, I cringed at the thought of Daniel groping that unknown woman in her breast exams like he did with Chloe. Ick! Anyway, I guess that patient is one who got away, so to speak.

On a related note, apparently, Daniel's wife Rebecca (the one who had died prior to his arrival in Salem) was also a patient. All these Salem women being ready to kill themselves over him makes me wonder how she died. Hmm. This is just another example of how much story potential they're not tapping. Instead of forcing him down our throats as a hero, the show should just go with the sleazy doctor who sleeps with his patients and who brings about their moral and emotional demise. That would be a much more interesting story than what we're getting.

TPTB failing to remember that Daniel is a patientgropingsexingpatient doctor is ludicrious, not matter how many regime changes DAYS has undergone. They expect us to forget that he's a manwhore, just like were are suppose to forget that Jennifer, was once the most revered & beloved Horton that ever existed, next to Alice.

But of course they'll never make us forget that Nicole, is a two timing, money hungry, sexed up, crazy bitch... that will do anything to keep a man... that much they seem to conveniently remember. LOL!!!!

Yes, her father, Paul Mendez, forced her to do porn at 16! That people constantly bring it up as if she did some terrible sin is DISGUSTING!

Yeah, it is really interesting that people love throwing her porn past in her face but no one ever mentions the fact that her father forced her to do it. He used to shoot her up with drugs. But hey, Nicole is Days favorite punching bag.
