If there was an Emmy for being a class act and for being committed to his story, costars and fans Freddie should win hands down IMO.
I agree with you. He is always upbeat and very supportive of this storyline and willing to give interviews. He is so informative and really seems to be thankful for the opportunity to share his views . What a great guy.

I'm actually fine with the other pairings: Chabby, Bristen, Ericole, Wilson, EJami

BUT there needs to be a new writer for Jarlena: Like maybe Broaderick can be promoted to write for them. Tomlin/Higley are horrid for them. And fixing them is top priority.

And put Maggie and Dan/Jen on the extreme backburner!!!

Also, end RATE for good. Pair Rafe with Crishell's character and put Kate back with Stefano.

Isn't focus on writing for Fandoms instead of writing for the character what got Days in this mess in this first place?

My personal philosophy is that I couldn't care less whether John & Marlena are together or not, I just want the story to be good and make sense which this on hasn't on multiple levels.

Both, IMO, Characters need to be written in character, and couples need to be built and/or affirmed.

And some characters, who are supposed to be more background characters, need to stay that way. Like Maggie. We should be seeing her like once or twice month. Not once or twice a week.

I agree. I would love to see another overarching s/l that has a bunch of ramifications that lead to even more overarching s/l's; like what they used to do in the 90's. I know that Days is trying to be "less outrageous" and more "realistic" but focusing almost solely on who's sleeping with who or multiple "baby daddy" s/l's are not the way to go.

I have no problem with seeing Maggie, or in her having a story.

My issue is that they made Daniel her egg baby son, and there WAS no egg baby. If they wanted to do a story for her, fine. Great. Bring back one or both of HER daughters, Melissa and Sarah, and use THEM. Then give her something to do.

That would have served the character of Maggie far better than inventing a son for her...especially one that so few of us like and admire...and one we know shouldn't exist.

I want Justin and Adrienne to have a story. I want Kayla to have one, too. So I'm certainly not against anyone getting a story. I'd just like one that makes sense and is compelling.

I agree with you and I would like to see those characters have stories, too. Problem is that tptb are trying to engage the 18-49 demo and those characters/actors don't fit that demo, which, IMO, is why we don't see them in A storylines or with storylines of their own. I don't necessarily agree with what they are doing because I am not sure it's producing the results they want. You can't just have a contract cast of mainly under 45 actors and expect to get a large, diverse audience.

I agree it's not good to write for a fanbase, tptb should write for the character. However, IMO, it's most important to stay true to those characters and write them as they should be written.

For example, for me as a John and Marlena fan, I could care less at this point that J&M have "broken up". However what pisses me off on a daily basis is how they are behaving! They are writing John as a complete ASSHOLE, that is just not the real John Black. As for Marlena, I have never seen her written for like this! They have made her a spineless doormat!

As for the other characters on this show... I really don't pay enough attention to them to speak to how they are being written for lol.
