I think this is a tremendous idea! Viewer participation is so key. There are many great ideas that people have, and this will give many people the opportunity to shape storylines, characters, etc. Interactive, on line audience participation is the only way to go to stay viable since with all the new technology people want to drive the process and be active not just watch TV passively anymore.

Maybe it will be a way to bring back actors from ONE LIFE and AMC –
would be nice after the horrendous fiasco over at Prospect Park and how
they had absolutely no clue whatsoever as to how to present a soap.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will Learns He Has A Brain Tumor; What Next For WilSon?

On Days of our Lives, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) have been through the wringer.  Just like any power couple in “soapdom” they are constantly pulled apart by circumstances that drives distance between them, or prevents them from being happily reunited.  But then, isn’t that was soaps are all about … or, do these boys deserve a bit of peace and quiet?

On Wednesday’s episode of the NBC daytime drama series, Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) drop the bomb on WilSon.  Sadly, Will has a small brain tumor, although believed to be benign, it is is in a section of his frontal lobe that makes it most likely inoperable.

Will asks if that explains his headaches and why he has been passing out, and Rex confirms that is the cause.  He also says the tumor is likely benign, because the larger ones are usually cancerous.  The next step is to do a biopsy.  Rex advises Will to not exercise, drive, work, and to avoid stress right now.

Later at the Kiriakis mansion, Will Google’s brain tumor’s on the internet and is emotionally overcome with what it says.  In tears and looking very sad, Sonny comes on to the scene to comfort Will, but Sonny is looking concerned himself, trying to put on a brave front for Will.  Then, Sonny and Will admit they are frightened for what’s ahead, but Sonny says they must try to stay positive.  Will cries.

These scenes were nicely played by Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, who always bring it in their scenes.

Look for more drama ahead for the duo and their on-screen families as Will deals with this new health crisis.

So, what does Will’s tumor mean for the future of WilSon?  What do you think will happen next? Are you upset that Will has this diagnosis? Do you want the duo to finally have some down time from all the drama, especially after getting Leo Stark (Greg Rikart) out of their lives?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
