It appears today’s episode, February 17, was the final airdate for Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) and Stephen Nichols (Steve).
As Ken Corday (Executive Producer, Days) promised in Soap Opera Digest, their exit wasn’t dramatic or ‘significant’, as their last scenes showed them in the hospital talking to Stephanie about her love life, learning Hope lost her badge, and Steve telling his wife she needed to concentrate on recovering from Hope shooting her.

Hopefully they’ll pop up again in the future, but for now, we must bid adieu to the Johnson’s.

We've barely had time to digest their firing before learning that last year's lead actor nominee, Thaao Penghlis was also let go. Now we are saddened once again to give fans this next news.
