Make EJ/Abby happen, DAYS!

Just would like to point out that Lilley favorited this tweet:

@jen_lilley Sorry gurl, not buying it. ;) Since DAYS is notorious for wanting to keep things hush, I'm hoping this is just a cover up! Haha!

I don't think they should get rid of anyone; just move some people onto the back burner and bring some forward.

I don't think anyone has to worry - I'm almost positive she's on the show. No reason why Greg would call her a DAYS newcomer if she was on set visiting. Plus he deleted his tweet, which tells me he revealed something he was not supposed to reveal.

Welcome to DAYS Ms. Lilley! :)

So much story can come from getting rid of main characters because their absences affect the canvas in a real way. Some reshuffling would be nice, too, but it's way past time for someone in this main group to lose a spouse/significant other (and Madison doesn't count, lol). Of course the pairings have been so weak in that group that I guess that kind of story really wouldn't be as good as it's been in the past.

Please write 4 Bryan Dattilo, Give him a love interest.

I could deal with a lot less of Sami. She's getting as annoying to me as Melanie was, having to
be in EVERY freakin story line. For me, who's sick of Sami it would be a welcome change to see some OTHER actors/resses come forward.

Maybe EJ could fake his death and try to pin it on Nick/Vargas?! Eileen hasn't been back long enough to suggest that Kristen fake her own death.

Yeah, the only way I think that kind of thing would be successful is if it was with someone like caustin, or even shelle. Nobody in the thirties group has had a pairing that really drew in the majority of the fans. The only death that would really rock the canvas would be Sami, imo, since she's related to, romantically linked to, or enemies with 99% of the town

The only thing though... Lilley appears to be a brunette now. So could she be Belle? She might be a whole other character, though I'd personally prefer her to play Belle.

I actually think Brady's death would affect the most people, but it would lack some of the extra emotional beats that one of the characters with children would have. The fact that they don't have the kind of characters and pairings that make that kind of story work so well is a major example of the problem this show has had with writing, IMO. Rafe and Daniel have been on the canvas about as long as Steve was when he was killed off, and I can't imagine either of their deaths being anywhere near the story Steve's was.

Belle is not a brunette. And Martha Madison IS Belle. Maybe she's the new PT?

LOL, I was thinking about Brady's death before I posted and decided it wouldn't have much impact at all. He should be an important character, but he seems like more of an afterthought, to me.

On the couples, I personally, am glad the show isn't doing the 'one true love' sort of deal, but the problem is that it's not that they're not doing it anymore, it's that they keep trying to do it, then changing their mind midway through as new writers come in, etc.

I don't dislike Martha, but I never felt connected to her Belle. I always preferred Kirsten, though I don't think she'll ever return as long as GH is on the air. I thought Jen Lilley was a talented actress when she replaced Kirsten on GH, though I didn't feel Maxie was the right character for her - I felt she'd be more perfect for a more wholesome character. I think she'd make an AWESOME Belle!

As a blonde, she totally has the Belle look, not to mention her eye color seems similar to Deidre's!

No way. I'd kill off Rafe or Daniel first. They are more expendable. Eric Martsolf entertains me way more than 3/4 of the males on this show.

For females, I'd love to see Sami go. Jennifer, too. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening.

As long as Marlena STAYS PUT.

I was thinking more of who all it would affect.

I think they could still have powerful stories about losing a S.O. without having a one true love type story.

But if the goal is to try and have a big affect on the canvas, killing off someone that nobody cares about would be the wrong way to go (you could kill them, as well though).

Them being expendable is kind of my point. They need to kill of someone important. I have no issue with them leaving too. That's not the issue.

True, but I'm not sure how much the audience would care if they were glad to see the dead person go. Just speaking for myself, a couple of years ago, a soap killed off someone's spouse and to be frank, the character needed to die and not only that, they were a kind of terrible couple. So, even though the surviving spouse was in an interesting story about loss, it didn't have the impact on my that it would have, if I would have felt the loss on some level, by missing the dead person's presence.

Just realized this isn't that clear - it's not so much that the character needed to die, it's that they were a good character at one time, who was now in a rut of a pairing that dragged them down. Trying to be vague, so it doesn't start a debate.
