Are you serious?  Who's going to be left?  Will it be the Stephanie and Melanie Show?  Heaven forbid.

I really liked Steve and Kayla years ago but this time around, I found them rather boring.  Kayla spent most of a year badgering Steve for a baby, which he kept telling her he didn't want and then she practically forced Pocket on him.  They really didn't have much of a storyline ever since Joe was born.  Funny, I was just thinking the other day about that 'spot' that they found on him after the "Stefano takes over the hospital" storyline.  I thought at some point they'd follow up on it, but I guess they just forgot about it.

We've lost John and Marlena, Bo and Hope are arguing, haven't seen Mickey since who knows when and now Steve and Kayla.
I used to get made fun of by my friends I went to school with when they found out I still watch DOOL after all these years. At the time I told them I'd be watching it until either I went or it did which ever came first. With this latest round of stupidity I'm thinking of baling.

Oh for cripes sake.  We might as well change this board to anything other than Days.  What a shame.

So sad what is happening to this show that used to be so wonderful back in it's day.  I really expect this show to go the way of Another World in the not too distant future.  Personally, I used to never miss a show and now I find myself watching no more than once or twice a week and when I do I fast forward through most of it.  I guess it is really time for me to stop watching!

 :-\ >:( :td:The rate they are going there won't be any veteran actors or fans left. I swear it is all a plot by NBC to destroy another soap. They have done it to every soap they have aired in the past. Sad Corday is in lock step with them. I can hear the TV's clicking to the off position.

UPDATE - Exit story info from their board administrator:

Okay, here's what's happening. Stephen and Mary Beth will not be getting an exit story AT ALL!!! Steve and Kayla will simply stop being on the show but the show will pretend they are still there because they will be mentioned by some of the other characters occasionally.



UPDATE - Last tape date info from their board administrator - she also posted that she has no info on their last scene or last airdate:

Stephen and Mary Beth's last tape day was last Wednesday.

Oh man that really sucks.

So Kayla will just be recovering indefinitely, and Steve will just be hanging around somewhere, and the baby will just cease to exist. One can only hope that when the economy turns around they will miraculously just "re-appear".

The question is - will there be any fans left to notice?

I think the next people to leave Days will be the audience.

I'll miss Steve, but unfortunately I won't miss Kayla.  She has bored me to tears for the past couple years.  I don't see how they could have gotten rid of one and not the other, but that's what I wish had happened.  NBC has sent me several surveys about who I like to watch and who I don't, and I've always voted  :td: for her.  Now I feel bad.  I can't believe the way they are writing them off. 

I'm here until they let Sami and EJ go!!  Love them.

I'm really getting ticked at this show.  Not that I have watched much this past couple of weeks.  I think this is a heck of a way to save money by getting rid of all the vets.  Pretty soon it will stink.  Who wants to see the Stephanie, Melanie, Chole show?  I know I don't.  This was all about the Brady and Horton familes.

Now I'm really pissed off. I see myself not watching anymore. I love Stephen Nichlos and MBE, its not their fault they havn't gotten a good sl, blame it on the writers. I think if these 2 leave and Thaao (Tony), I'll ve history too.

It is really ignorant of TPTB to hire veterans in the hopes of boosting ratings and then not give them a story line which is strong enough to allow them to accomplish anything!!!  I'm sorry to see Steve and Kayla go...I've been watching since Days first came on the air and really miss the continuity and strength of the "family" connections and ongoing stories.  Sorry to say I'm about ready to stop watching...all it will take is more ridiculous writing or one more vet firing.

I believe that there will be more actors getting the hatchett.   Chloe has been with Phillip, Lucas and now Dan and unless she teams up with Brady, who else is there for her?   Likewise Dan has been with Chelsea, Kate and now Daniel.   When it comes out about Danial and Chloe there are going to be quite a lot of angry people.   So out with those two and in with a couple more newbies under 30 years of age.    Days of Our Lives is now becoming Days of Our Grandkids.

I also heard a rumor that Kristian Alfonso may be leaving too.  There won't be very many of the old characters left, oh, wait a minute, there's always Maggie who is causing trouble and can't keep her nose out of everyone else's business.
