Wow, now that’s a threesome I’ll be supporting. Just hope my heart fluttering for these guys won’t make me airborne.

Great to have Will & Sonny back in Salem. Leo…. not so much. Especially given the rumors of what his next storyline will be.

Well Will just left for AZ. He’ll be gone for a few weeks. Only Zach Tinker is on Contract. Will is back in Atlanta to get more PTO.

“I thought we were friends” makes me think that we will either be getting Chad in drag again, or Chad pretending to come on to Leo to get some kind of information.

Satan, should be loving this, day’s being controlled by RC, a demented narcissistic person, with no sexual maturity.

Years ago, it was considered mental illness, Now it’s kinda socially politically correct, but folks know the difference.

It’s sad GR has RC as…
…a character?…

I have to say goodbye folks, Johnny masturbating a sword saying “Oh you’re a big one, was goodbye to Days for me.

Now that I have no soaps this site doesn’t have me.

I don’t know if you were intending to being funny, but I find your comments rude, cruel and not the kind of speech that should be tolerated. I’m sure no one will miss your kind of comments on here and all will get along just fine.

I have been waiting and rooting so hard for a Wilson return – I have the feeling though this will likely be just a short-term return? I want them on as regulars! Zack Tinker is great as Sonny! Chandler Massey is my all-time favorite Days actor! While I have not been happy with Days, particularly Ron’s poor writing, at least they are having several favorites return – Sami is also returning to the show! I watch for the actors and certainly not for the storylines…

As for Leo I am speculating that he will likely be Craig’s boyfriend….

Only for Chandler Massey. Zach is contract. Chandler decided to only do recurring.

I don’t watch Days, but does this mean we won’t be seeing Greg Rikaart as Kevin on Y&R any more? We’ve hardly seen him since he and Chloe returned but I live in hope.

He has only been on recurring at Y&R for quite some time now. I suspect his return to Days is also recurring and likely short-term but we don’t know for certain… I love him on both shows.

Greg is not under contract on either show. That allows him the flexibility to do both. For example, Wally Kurth (Ned/Justin) has been doing both GH and DAYS for years.
