I wish RPW the very best. No matter how anyone felt about his performance as Dillon, I don't care if it is a major actor or a person who scrubs the toilet, I am NEVER happy to hear about a person suddenly losing their job. Did they REALLY have to do it that way, without notice or warning? I fully realize that soaps are businesses, and businesses, like people, will make brilliant moves at times, and other times, moves so stupid that they utterly defy logic. I don't know why, and of course this is pure speculation on my part, but I don't think this latest move is Valentini at work. I think this must be the network making cost cuts. No matter who has the title of EP, even they aren't really the boss.
I wonder if these last weeks pushed TPTB to get rid of Sally and Kay -- or if these last weeks show us Mal taking control of the writing.
i don't want to dump on Sally, because I do think she did many good things. However, I hope these last few messy weeks are her fault....and that Mal was hired as HW to straighten things out.
My biggest fear is that we're already seeing Mal's work. If so, UGH.
