    If it is up to the head writer ,I would break up Daniel and Jen permanently but if that's something to do with an exec decision then I would make them suffer more realistic problems that don't require the destruction of other characters ,maybe have their problems be more about their character flaws instead of always having them break up over someone else. I'd also make Dan specialise ,this whole "magical medicine man " ego trip they have him playing out is ridiculous ,maybe then people would treat him more normally and stopping acting like he is the 2nd coming of the lord. I'd have Justin break up with Adrienne and create a love triangle with these two and someone else. Victor would go back to his life of crime without Naggie's knowledge as she's too busy prowling Salem and getting into Dan's business ,this would somehow blow up in her face later on as maybe Victor gets in too deep needs someone to talk to and turns to Caroline. Will and Sonny would kick Gabi to the curb and end up with Arianna ,Gabi would then have a nervous breakdown and be carted off somewhere far ,far away. Rafe would wake up from his coma with a different personality, or just a personality in general. Eric would leave the church not because of Kristen but because of his feelings for Nicole and start pursuing her and she maybe pushes him away (yes I know Nicole would finally play hard to get)out of guilt and Brady realising his brother is serious about Nicole would wake up ,realise that she is the love of his life and pursue her too .Nicole would then become Sami 2.0 and for the rest of the year struggle with who to pick as she would suddenly be in demand . Of course Eric would have to win(though he is kind of boring) but he would have left the church to be with her.

    If I were the Head writer, I would demand that the writer who's writing for MAGGIE STOP the Character assassination. Her personality is NOTHING like the MAGGIE we've loved for SOO MANY YEARS!!

    They bring Daniel in, make Maggie his Mother to prop Daniel and to tie him to the Horton's and Salem just like they've done Gabi by having Will's baby.
    If the new Actors I hired couldn't be successful with their own acting abilities, without having to permanently tie them to one of the families in Salem, then I'd let them go look for another acting job.

    Stop using the great "vets" to prop ALL their newbies/returnees! Immediately I'd focus of finally giving Bo the quality exit story that amazing character deserves - explain his absence onscreen so the fans can go through it with Hope/Ciara (preferably, a presumed dead sl so Bo can return). This character and this couple were the very face of DAYS for nearly the life of the show - when it REMAINED at the top of the ratings for all those years - and ignoring his absence for 9 mos. hoping the audience will believe he's still out there wasting Hope's opportunity for decent story material is ludicrous. He & they deserve more respect than that! It's not too late but long overdue! It's a MUST if Hope has a chance to contribute meaningful story anymore since they were so very popular as a twosome!

    Seems they are only concerned with the Vets looking stupid or propping their newbies and Favs.
    Where are all of our men??
    We have Stefano, Victor, Abe, Justin & EJ.

    NONE of the younger group. None!!

    Maggie to prop Daniel
    Jennifer to prop Daniel & these 2 little NEW creeps JJ & JT.
    Sami to prop R---.
    Hope to look as incompetent as possible.
    & to talk about R---.
    Nicole to prop the new Eric.
    Kate to prop R---.
    etc...

    Ej and Sami are the only ones with a s/l.
    But where are their children??
    and MOST of the time, they are to prop R---.

    IMO.. Where's DOOL?!?!?!!

    SOO. If I were the Head Writer..
    I'd go by Jennifer's house and borrow several of her Brown Paper Bags, Pass them out to my writing team with instructions to bag their heads.. I'd put the biggest browm Paper Bag over my head and I'd get the h$ll out of Salem and allow a new team to rediscover DOOL!!!
    Actually, I'd give one to Corday and to all TPTB..

    And, "zuzu", I'd like to add another suggestion that I think is really important! If the present regime just as one or two prior to them has done where they've chosen to rewrite history of this once-great entertaining hour of super stories & use of talent by taking these incredible characters/couples totally out of character instead of staying true to the history & show's foundation of over 4 decades I think they should simply keep the characters they have on now, write for them & showcase them in any form they choose, but simply change the name of the show. This onscreen stuff they're cramming and abusing the great characters still on/available who made it strong is NOT DAYS - not close! Change the name & all will be well with the world & honest to the show & it's longstanding fans!!

    YES!!!! LuvBoHope.. That is exactly what they should do.. Correct me IF I'm wrong, but isn't this the same writer that failed at Days. Started his own Soap. It failed, SO he brought his Favs from that FAILED Soap over to Days, then he returned.. IF he failed twice before, WHY the Heck Did TBTB even THINK about bringing him back?!?!?

    It seems that the show is being given a bigger budget so I would like EJAMIFAMILY time seen on screen and a nicely done wedding for only the family and no interruptions.

    I do think they need to address where Bo is and if they won't recast then at least not leave Hope in limbo.

    I wish they had given Casey more to do so he would have stayed as Chad.

    I would write for the people on my cast now and stop the casting calls!!

    I recently started back at GH and I love the teen/young scene angst. Why do we have to have the two newbee's be drug and people users. JMO
