Since SN is leaving, I would send Steve and Kayla to California to take care of Kimberly. Sorry Mary Beth, but I just don't want to see Kayla moving on without Steve.
I would bring Eduardo back and have him be Kate's true love. I am thinking Taming of the Shrew. He could team up with John. I guess they would have to rename Black Patch. Kate and Marlena are already friends. I would play up that friendship. The show could use some strong women relationships that are not threatened by potential husband stealing.
I would have Gabi confess her lie about the baby switch and go back to being n honest woman, good mother, and good businesswoman. I would have Bella magazine add several more Faces of Bella, one being Gabi. I want o see diversity in races, ages, weights etc. Valeri is beautiful. They could feature her as a successful doctor, mother, beautiful fiancee.
I would have Hope resign as police commissioner and take a bigger role in the Horton connection to the hospital charities. Rafe and Eli stay detectives, and some outsider becomes the seldom seen police commissioner. Lani meets Ted and leaves for Europe with him.
Maggie should stop trying to change Victor, and when she does, he should stop his illegal ways. I would bring Xander back into the fold. He could replace Sonny at Titan, and paired with Gabi, he could build something good. Gabi could be his Maggie and make him want to be a better man.
I would have them address that Stefan is not really Stephano's son. Stefan could be bisexual and he and Sonny could move to Europe together, permanently. Will stays single for a while and becomes a better journalist, somewhat like Jack Devereaux.
Ciara and Ben get their own place. The loft was paid for by parents while the kids were in college. Time to grow up.
