It is so hilarious that the campaign has barely gotten off the ground since season 1, this show can be quite slow at times. Usually, I'm on Hanna's side, but she went too far this time. If a whodunnit happened, I think Veronica would just get shot or something, but survive like JR Ewing. Tyler Perry loves to emulate other works, so I can see him writing it like that.
I imagine the writers will put the character into the DiMera orbit now that he has been SOARED. There was one scene years ago that would be great foreshadowing for that and it was when Tony (Andre or whatever) held Theo at his christening and said "you are a DiMera" or something to that effect, I can't remember it verbatim. The DiMeras need some beefing up.
Of course not all of the checks are for pennies, some are for decent amounts and a lot of the bigger checks go to actors who had a hand in producing or creating a show, which is all about contract. Regardless, union jobs require residuals and even a check for one cent has to be sent out. Lisa Whelchel from the Facts of Life has posted about receiving some very small residual checks and that show most certainly has not been rerun as much as the Cosby Show. The notion that actors live off of residuals is inflated at best (there are some actors who have been able to do so, though, but it isn't many).
From what I know about residuals, the pay is based on a sliding scale that declines in value the longer and more frequent that the show runs. I've heard of some actors living off them, and I've heard of others only get a few cents every now and then. Whatever residuals anyone from this show were getting are probably way down to cents.
