This is just Corday's way, he knows it gets a lot of attention. He will probably bring Drake back in a few months.

So I'm guessing he will be wondering around Salem and we will just never see him?? So stupid!

This is ridiculous. At least write a proper exit for John.
The writers, TomSell, only write for the characters they like. Bo had been on canvas for 29 years, do you think they gave him a proper exit? Heck NO! But, they can give Melanie a month send off because they liked her and she was a byproduct of the current crappy regime. I wouldn't get my hopes up that John gets a proper send off, let alone any acknowledgement from Days, Corday or Sony that he is no longer with the show.

So sad. If Drake is indeed off the show I wish TPTB had the guts to come out and admit it.

Seriously it's awful how the characters of John Black and Bo Brady have been treated by the current regime. It's why I wouldn't blame Peter a bit if he jumped soaps to GH. And it's not like they have given Hope and Marlena airtime and material to adequately deal with the departure of their husbands.

Apparently yesterday wasn't John's last appearance on the show...he's on today's show also (7/18)

Yeah, I was surprised by his appearance today.

Okay, this is just crazy. Why on Earth haven't they announced his departure. Has this ever happened to anyone before? Too bizarre. I would consider contract negotiations, but that's not the case here.

Typical lazy character destruction without explanation and resolution. These writers won't even bother to write anything about Marlena not being with John or her missing him, the man she has been devoted to most of her life. He'll never be mentioned again, as though he never existed. Pitiful and disrespectful to fans. Their cowardly destruction of a beloved character and his inexplicable disappearance is inexcusable. :(

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

I don't remember the details but I remember they treated Louise Sorel horribly when they fired her in the late 90s.

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?
Exactly. They don't want it in the mags. SOD put the RUMOR in the mag about him coming back, to get people to buy it, but Days did not comment. They don't like any kind of bad press. What would they say? We're done with the character now that we destroyed him and his marriage, so there is no reason to have him on contract. If they say nothing then they think people will keep watching thinking he's still around about to show up at any time.

Yes, but we knew about that months in advance at least. Funny you should bring that one up...I remember getting a postcard in the mail from Louise on the exact day her last episode aired in 2000.

Corday's way is wrong and unacceptable!!! He's a ungrateful tyrant that doesn't respect vets who made DAYS popular for many years. The least TPTB could do is give an announcement--but they don't even have the courtesy to do it.

They are shady. :glare: :ermm:

Thanks for sharing! How did they write her out? I can't remember.

It's possible that Drake will be out for a while, then Corday will announce his PLAN TO SAVE DAYS (part 57) and he'll bring back Peter and Drake, and hopefully new writers.

Ivan won the lottery and he and Vivian left town together.

This is just why this show loses long time fans. This situation, right here, is an excellent example. John leaves the show walking out of the Kiriakis Mansion and that's it. They are taping November Sweeps, and John is not in them. Deidre, on the other hand, is working and that's a plus.

Drake phoned it in the last few months, but look at the material. It was so out of character, he just couldn't even try to sell it. He's never been "Days" best actor, but he has been it's most popular. Despicable.

Corday has the philosophy, which he often discards when it's convenient for him, that DAYS is actor proof. That it's all about the show and no one actor or character makes or breaks it. Actors can be replaced and actors are not allowed to play the popularity game during negotiations because he will prove to them that they are not essential. No actor is going to hold him hostage.

There was a great interview with Tony Geary, Jane Eliot, and Kin Shriner of GH where they talked about the importance of veteran characters to the long-term success of any soap opera.
DR Linkhttp://daytimeroyaltyonline.com/topic/8800005/1/#new. Soap opera viewers put a lot of time into their shows as they air 5 times a week. It's hard to keep motivated to do this when long-time favorite characters such as Jack, Bo, and John have been treated so disrespectfully.

Hoping this was not Hogestyn last hoorah as John Black! Would love to see the character back in Salem and back with the love of his life. Also, would love seeing them back in the penthouse, were they truly belong. Come on writers, make it happen!!!
