    It’s hard to say whether or not this is a good move until we see the new writers’ storylines. Some of the things in the ‘rumor mill’ are so ‘off’ that if there is any actual truth to them, you can expect ratings to take another major nosedive. Specifically the rumors about Will suddenly being gay, and about Sami involved in another who’s the daddy, or wack-job daddy storyline.

    While I am ready for some new writing potential(so sick of recycled storylines), don’t know if replacing her with writers from a show that tanked is all that good.(Passions)

    I don’t understand why some are so against Will possibly being gay or there being gay characters. Can’t they deal with or allow even one gay couple? I mean they have all the other straight couples on the show to entertain them. What about gay people and what they might enjoy? Some women might enjoy a gay male storyline. It might attract gay male viewers. That might help ratings. If someone is open minded enough to watch the stuff they have on a soap opera I seriously doubt that many people are going to have a problem with a gay character or characters on the soap.

  5. From Samantha Jean

    I hope the new writers do not make Will suddenly gay. That storyline will only drive viewers away.

    It doesn’t matter WHO they bring in at this point. If rumors are true and they let go of the most talented actress on the show (Crystal Chappell), there won’t be any reason to keep watching.

    I am so sorry to hear about the gay storyline. I kow it is in everyday life, but please not on a soap. I liked Will and Gabi together. a cute couple. I was really surprised they are taking Carly off, but then like someone else said, when she and Bo were over they didnt’ give her a good storyline. I didnt’ like the drugs.

  8. From Vicki

    Something that has been driving me crazy over the years of watching Days is the medical scenes. Whoever is your medical consultants are horrible! They should be fired. And change the room that everyone goes into at least a little. It looks like it is an all purpose room. Please change medical consults

    The gay story line is fine. Get rid of Nicole!!!
