Please post all interesting/spoilerish tweets in this thread. If a news article or new video is also tweeted (for example by SOD or NBC), it should probably go in its own thread, following our normal rules. This thread is for tweets, usually from someone on the list below, which give us information in some way about anything related to the show or upcoming storylines.

Please link each tweet and then set it off in italics, quotes or a quote box. To link a tweet, click "expand" and then click "details". That will give you the link to the tweet on its own page. If this is difficult (ie posting from a phone), please at least set off the tweet in quotation marks.

If anyone has names to add to this thread, please PM them to me rather than putting them in the thread. There are unfortunately a lot of fake accounts out there, and we want to verify each account is legit before putting it in this list.

I have entered the below list as a "Twitter List" under the DaytimeRoyalty twitter account. To access it, go to

http://twitter.com/DaytimeRoyalty/days-of-our-lives

Then click "Follow this list". It will then appear in your lists.

Thanks! :smile:

Right now, I think they're treating the vets better than they have in awhile, with the exception of Drake Hogestyn.

*Marlena's deep in a rivalry with Kristen, who is herself a vet.

*They're using Justin in a meaningful way.

*Adrienne's involved in the action...and though I think Adrienne's coming across too strongly in this situation, I think Judi's nailing her scenes beautifully.

*We've seen more of Abe lately.

*We may not be seeing a lot of Hope right now, but we DO know she's got story coming.

*They're even doing more with Kayla.

*Maggie and Victor are being used...though I don't like the way Maggie's acting about Daniel at all.

Now, if we could get more of Doug and Julie in the midst of all this, and if Hope's story would start airing so we can take a look, I'd think as far as the vets are concerned, we're in a pretty good place at the moment.

I won't mention Missy much, cuz I don't like Jennifer's current story...Well, the mother/boss/friend part is good. Fine. The Daniel part? No comment other than that I don't like it.
Marlena was written OOC for months during the Bristen and then during Jarlena gate #56868343. Even in Kristen's newest revenge scheme Marlena's barely been mentioned or seen even though she's the target. :glare:

Hope has basically been a poptart popping out of a broken toaster at the oddest times. It was only those few weeks during Jensen that it seemed like she actually had a reason to be on screen.

Kayla and Kayla might as well be on a cruise with Julie and Doug

Maggie is slowly starting to beat out Sami as the most odious woman alive in Salem.

Victor is only let out of his room long enough to sound like an old man who's still bitter about women getting the right to vote. :glare:

Roman only exist to let you know he still exists.

Abe has had less time on screen in the past 9 months than Ari Grace even though she born a month or two ago.

Bo, Steve, and John might as well be killed off at this point.

Justin and Adrienne are only getting screen time because they're being served as angst for Ejami and Wilson.

It's true that some of the vets are getting better treatment screen time but most of them (except Missy and Ali) are essentially being used as character props.

I know a lot of people are going to hate this comment; but Alison Sweeney (with her 20 years on the show) qualifies for vet status and she's the heart of this show, like it or not. She's simply the youngest of the vets on this show.
I don't think she's the heart of the show, but she's definitely a vet. For some reason "vet" often just seems to mean "older than 40" on the boards, but AS and BD and even JKJ, NB, and JS have more years on the show than some of the older actors or the people typically characterized as vets. And GG and SC are both closing in on that gap, too. The thing is, I don't think the show actually realizes this. They still think Sami and Lucas are "the kids." The kids with a grandchild.

Yeah, "heart" probably wasn't the right word to use. I think "center" or "focal point" would have been better terms as "heart" implies an emotional element or connection which is tough if not impossible to find with Sami.

Ah. Then I agree. I also happen to think that's why the show has struggled so much the last several years.

Really they should have Stefano (or someone) holding all of the male parts of the supercouples in cages somewhere.
When I read this, I thought you meant the "male parts" of all the men. Considering what Stefano sent Bernardi to do to Rafe, it painted quite a picture! :jedi:

I don't think the current vets are being treated any worse than the vets in the past were (e.g., the Hayes, Jed Allan, Joseph Gallison, Edward Mallory, etc.). Younger actors always eventually edge out the older ones. It's that way in most workplaces.
The problem is that the current writers seem to take pleasure in writing them out of character, destroying the couples that long time viewers have loved for years and totally ignoring Days rich history or rewriting it. Wonder what these writers would have done to Tom and Alice?!?

We do? I have heard that since last fall but still nothing.
we know that Kristian's been on set every day for the last 11 work days, so she must have some sort of story or part in a story in October/November.


My like button doesn't work on this computer, but I like this. It's time for Hope to be a featured player again, with Bo or without him. She's done her time on the sidelines, and it should be her turn for something a little more meaty now.

I love Bo. I love Peter. But since he and the show couldn't come to some agreement in their recent? talks, I think it's time to let Kristian/Hope move forward. If one member of a supercouple is not on the show, then the other member should still have a chance to be active in good stories. The fate of one shouldn't determine the fate of the other. They SHOULD take their time before developing a new love interest...because the alternative is Daniel/Jennifer. Jack was disrespected to make them happen, and to top it off, they were rushed. Not to mention that the writing for Daniel AND Jennifer hurt them from the first, though the show doesn't seem to recognize that.

But Bo's been off since...December, is it? And it's now July, so that's seven months. Given the taping schedule, it'll be a year before anything will have happened to start Hope on the road to a new relationship. That's enough time, isn't it, to show respect to a wonderful coupling. And it's not as if Bo can never return to throw a wrench in the works. If the show and Peter can eventually come to some agreement, that is.

i'm stuck on what Nick would be telling both Hope & Kate. I'm assuming that Hope would be happy & Kate would be upset (unless Nick's gotten his job with Kate back, in which case it could be the reverse). I'm also wondering if he tells them the news separately or at the same time.
damn you, Blake, for making me have all these questions. lol. ;)

i'd LOVE to see Hope be more of a central player, even if only for a few months. I don't expect to see her 15+ times every month, but it would be nice if, in those 7-8 (or so) episodes that make more sense to consistently see her in, she was utilized properly. Hope's barely been around in July (i think today was her 3rd episode) & of those 3, only Friday's actually had Hope being utilized throughout - previously we'd gotten 1/2 an episode followed by background, & today we got maybe 4 lines.
To be honest, it's the under-utilization within actual episodes (both in terms of airtime/scenes and function) that annoys me more than the episode count. i'd be less annoyed that Hope's only been in 3 episodes this month if those 3 appearances had had real substance to them, and not just had Hope be in the background. Kristian's gorgeous, yes, but she's not meant to be part of the set design.

I'm not really disagreeing with you. But I'm seeing an improvement. Yes, Marlena was written OOC, but she's back now. You can see it.

We know more is coming with Hope, and I can only hope it's meaningful when it does.

I think more Kayla is coming.

You're absolutely right on Maggie. The writing for her has been TERRIBLE in many, many scenes for months. They like using Suzanne, but they don't have Maggie "down" if they think this is who she is. Some constantly interfering woman who can't let her 40+ year old son deal with his own personal life, and acting like he's more important to her than the niece she's known and loved her entire life.

There's a great set up for Victor in this DiMera/Kiriakis struggle that could ensue. I can only hope!

Roman? That ain't Roman! Dude's Chris Kositchek. Everybody knows that!

Stephen left with Mary Beth in 2009. Took another job on another soap. When the show wanted Mary Beth back, the show decided to divorce them. I understand that. It's circumstance-dictated. I'm hoping he'll be back one of these days. There's story all set up if he does. In the meantime, I'm glad they use Mary Beth.

I think the show likes Wally and Judi. Seems like it. They've been giving them meaningful stuff lately. Relationship stuff. It has potential.

So, I don't really disagree with you...I guess it just depends on if you're an optimist or not. Is the glass half empty or half full?

they're probably retconning the baby's parentage and making Arianna Grace his instead of Will's.

I know. One of my favorite posts is often Jason's chart. He puts it up periodically, and it lets you see each airdate an actor/actress has during a particular month. I noticed a week or so ago that Kristian hadn't been on at all after July 1st. Since then she's been on a couple of times...but her appearances should be more meaningful than they have been in her recent appearances. I think it's time to involve her in a more in depth way again. Bo's absence, I'm sure, helped sideline her for awhile. That does happen. It did in the 80s too, if a spouse was killed. There would be a period of time when the remaining partner would be in family type scenes only for awhile...It's better than moving too fast. But it HAS been awhile now, and I do think it's time for more for Hope.

Believe me when I tell you that I understand. It gets frustrating waiting so long for something good for your favorite. At least you have the promise for more ahead, and I'm pulling for Hope!

good scenes with @laurenkoslow and @KJAlfonso Talk about different reactions to the news I laid on them. #DAYS

I'm sorry. I'm still learning how to do this and don't know how to post the link.
they're probably retconning the baby's parentage and making Arianna Grace his instead of Will's.
ugh. i hope not. among other things, it wouldn't make sense.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep


My like button doesn't work on this computer, but I like this. It's time for Hope to be a featured player again, with Bo or without him. She's done her time on the sidelines, and it should be her turn for something a little more meaty now.

I love Bo. I love Peter. But since he and the show couldn't come to some agreement in their recent? talks, I think it's time to let Kristian/Hope move forward. If one member of a supercouple is not on the show, then the other member should still have a chance to be active in good stories. The fate of one shouldn't determine the fate of the other. They SHOULD take their time before developing a new love interest...because the alternative is Daniel/Jennifer. Jack was disrespected to make them happen, and to top it off, they were rushed. Not to mention that the writing for Daniel AND Jennifer hurt them from the first, though the show doesn't seem to recognize that.

But Bo's been off since...December, is it? And it's now July, so that's seven months. Given the taping schedule, it'll be a year before anything will have happened to start Hope on the road to a new relationship. That's enough time, isn't it, to show respect to a wonderful coupling. And it's not as if Bo can never return to throw a wrench in the works. If the show and Peter can eventually come to some agreement, that is.

i'd LOVE to see Hope be more of a central player, even if only for a few months. I don't expect to see her 15+ times every month, but it would be nice if, in those 7-8 (or so) episodes that make more sense to consistently see her in, she was utilized properly. Hope's barely been around in July (i think today was her 3rd episode) & of those 3, only Friday's actually had Hope being utilized throughout - previously we'd gotten 1/2 an episode followed by background, & today we got maybe 4 lines.
To be honest, it's the under-utilization within actual episodes (both in terms of airtime/scenes and function) that annoys me more than the episode count. i'd be less annoyed that Hope's only been in 3 episodes this month if those 3 appearances had had real substance to them, and not just had Hope be in the background. Kristian's gorgeous, yes, but she's not meant to be part of the set design.

yes. Kristian's now up to a whopping 3 of 16 episodes. (meanwhile, Lauren Boles is still above her in the July rankings at 5 of 16.) we'll see how many of these "Sami's arrested" episodes Hope is included in. It would've been nice to have Hope notice that she had a message from Abe (which would've been about Adrienne & the video) but didn't have a chance to check it because of the presentations or what not. After all, isn't Hope supposed to be part of the Bernardi investigation? Oh wait... including that little scene would've taken away from all the Sami-ness of the episode. smh!

Maybe Stefano's dead (again)? Or Sami is getting out of prison and Hope's happy, Kate's not.
