Philip and Morgan (NBC)

When Soaps.com recently talked with Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe) and Jay Johnson (Philip), they both hinted that there would be a lot of intermingling between characters in the upcoming months. If the last couple of weeks have been any indication, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the summer!

Gone are the days of characters sharing the screen with just one or two people and forgetting that they know other people in town. Under the new Days regime, fans are being treated to unexpected alliances and friendships, with characters becoming involved in more than just one storyline.

Here are some examples of all the path crossing we’ve witnessed so far:

* Nicole has been flirting with EJ, while trying to stick it to Sami who is trying to get back together with Lucas who is Nicole’s ex-husband. Nicole has already tried to seduce John to get information for Philip who is trying to help her get a fair divorce settlement from his father Victor. Nicole has even found a much-needed friendship in the form of former crazy lady Ava.

* Considering they all live in his house, John has his hands full with the Sami/Lucas/EJ triangle, while trying to figure out his relationship with Marlena. He recently began seeing Ava, continues to battle Philip, and deals with Roman, Abe, Bo and Hope from the Salem PD on a regular basis.

* Philip is sleeping with Chloe, flirting with Morgan, manipulating Paul, fighting with Victor for control of the Kiriakis empire, setting up John and trying to elude his cop brother Bo and sister-in-law Hope.
