Wish we’d see more of Leo

I really loved him on the April Fools Day episode. He’s a refreshingly fun OTT character who isn’t confined to a defined common character personality. He can act outrageously, speak without a filter, openly flirt/come on to any man, etc. Similar to past characters like Eugene, Calliope, & Susan, it’s a comedic element that DAYS has historically used in their cast of characters & I, for one, really enjoy those breaks in the drama. And, darn, he rocked that suit! I know a trans that I wish I could get it for. S/he would love it. Reminded me of the crazy prints we wore back in the 60-70’s. I thought my grandmother was so cool (groovey) when she wore them. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Sadly, with Wilson leaving & Leo not being Johns, I’m not sure how they would bring him back & what they would do with him. I really wish he’d proven to be John’s. I’d welcome a rewrite finding him to be John’s, after all. Plus DAYS writers could show us they can write storylines for gay characters that aren’t just about romance trials & tribulations. Bring Back Leo! Please & Thank you.

Thought it was just a prop for anti people who are probably totally disgusted by the whole idea of a suit designed with those thoughts in mind…when you think about it…that was one u g l y suit

I wanted him to be John’s also. Leo is such a better character than Kevin (Y&R) is now.

@LifelongDaysFan I completely agree!
He is a refreshing bundle of joy and energy!
I love his character and I also loved that suit on him!
I’d go for a rewrite and make him Johns son.
We don’t need Wilson for him to be in Salem. Though I’m sad they are leaving. Would love a Wilson mystery where they work together to solve something. Rather the same ole stale, tear them apart and put them back together.

I guess it was nostalgia coming from the hippie generation. Not sure anyone else could have pulled it off - but Leo rocked it imo. Cheerful. upbeat, & funny as all get out. Remember, this is Salem - not RL. :joy:

I like Leo’s character. GR does off the wall comedy but also can do great dramatic work. He would fit well into Salem as a multi-layered character. Being John’s son would be ok but not necessary, just like he doesn’t have to be tied to Wilson anymore.
