DRAKE HOGESTYN'S LAST "DAYS" EPISODE SET TO AIR TOMORROW

Although "Days" has not commented officially, Drake Hogestyn will possibly be making his final appearance as John Black on tomorrow's July 17 episode, when he appears in some phone call scenes with Brady. Hogestyn taped those scenes on March 18 and has not taped since. "Days" is now taping mid-November scenes this week. Hogestyn was removed from the cast credits several weeks ago. Whatever the outcome may be, John Black will be missing from the canvas for at least the next four months and indefinitely thereafter.

Reminisce about Drake's time as John in this John/Marlena tribute I did back in 2009 when the duo first left the show:

Although I did not enjoy his recent work it is a shame to see another vet go out like this. Again. :shame:

This has been the most "mysterious" of someone being taken off contract as I can recall...

You had SOD saying he was coming back, "Days" not commenting at all, and me saying he's gone for at least the next 4 months. Very strange.

This is terrible. I have a bad feeling DH isn't returning to the canvas again.

Days is screwing with the vets again. They just keeping it on the down low cause they think fans are stupid. Why do you think they wrote John so hateful this last period?

What a weird situation. I don't get why they won't say what is going on with him.

Did they ever come out with news of Bryan too? I can't remember.

If not, maybe this is their "new" way of handling contact issues--contract to recurring or contract ending? :shrug:
Does it feel like they almost don't want to say anything so that people aren't calling emailing, etc to ask for that actor back?

I don't think they ever did. Bryan's fan's mentioned it on the Lumi board in early May, I think that was the first time it was mentioned online. Never saw anything from Days and I don't think SOD mentioned his change in status either.

Ill voice my opinion and I know it isn't a popular one but here goes: It IS very strange how this info is being handled, it's an insult to a legacy character and his fans if this is, indeed, IT! Smells like there's something else cooking in the kitchen tho because this just does not make sense. However, I'm not saddened by this news as the John Black I knew died years ago and IMO, they should've left him dead. We know Deidre remains and I hope she gets good story on her own.

Thanks Jason. Sad to see they way Drake has been treated by Days...I stopped watching when J&M were written off before and this feels like the same thing has happened without it even being acknowledged by the show. Miss my John and Marlena!

I'm not a big fan of the supercouples (because they'd already been disbanded at least once or twice by the time I was even born), but it's so weird to see these established women on the show with their husbands floating in limbo. Hope, Marlena, Kayla....you would think the show would want to have at least one established couple to sit in their rocking chairs and give advice to the younger people. I'm almost glad that Doug and Julie are off traveling. They'd probably kill them too.

And by telephone , no less. What a crock.

I love the supercouples. I've been very attached to them over the years. I have my favorite, of course, but the stories for each of them were compelling. Each of them became friends before any hopping in bed. You'd wait months for a first kiss. They'd actually go ON A DATE. Usually there was some musical montage as they were getting ready for said first date.

Romance was in the air, I'm telling you.

But...I don't know. As much as I love those supercouples and respect each individual actor/actress that made up the supercouples, I think we have to let them exist separately now. If the male half of the supercouple is gone...especially if they're off doing other things, then tell us stories with the female halves. Don't leave them in limbo forever. And by the same token, if the male halves are available, and there's story, and they want to be on the show, tell stories with them too. These people were individuals first, before they were ever paired. Let them BE the individuals they are. They can exist well outside their relationships. There's no law that says they can't.

I want to see stories with Kayla, Hope, and Marlena. I'd say Jennifer, but I don't like Jennifer and Daniel together. I do welcome seeing her as a mom, as an independent working woman. But I don't like Daniel, so how am I to like Jennifer and Daniel together? I wish I COULD like Daniel, but so much damage has been done to that character.

I wish the PTB weren't so enamored.

I may have spoken too soon about the "telephone" part...Was just mad at how Drake was treated when I was typing it up...and had the spoilers "Brady phones John" in my mind...so was thinking he was probably going to be in a "Phone for John" Limbo set...but perhaps Brady calls him and he shows up at the Kiriakis mansion.

This is ridiculous. At least write a proper exit for John.
