Last week, King’s DAYS revealed that Lucas Roberts was the final – and most shocking – victim of Maggie Horton’s reign of terror. This, of course, means that Bryan Dattilo has been released from the blog. “This was the most difficult casting decision I’ve ever had to make so far in the 18 months the blog has been going. Dattilo is amazing, and Lucas is a great character. LUMI is one of DAYS’ biggest couples so it was a big move. I have written our halves of supercouples before, but there was always the intention of bringing them back. This time, it’s hard because Lucas is definitely gone so he will not be returning.”…King says.

Many readers are not pleased with the decision and want to know…WHY LUCAS!?

“It had to be Lucas for a number of reasons. Of course, I wanted to have a big name be the last victim. It had to be shocking. But it also had to be someone who is close to Maggie. The whole storyline had to come to gigantic climax and culminate with the death of someone very close to Maggie. It had to be a Horton because the first victim was Alice, and it had to come full circle. More than that, this is going to be a Sami story. It’s not a gratuitous murder. It is going to mean some major character development for Sami. She realizes now that she has lost so much time she could have had with Lucas because of her lies and deception. This is the one thing that Sami cannot rationalize and revert back to her old behavior. Sami has Peter now, and there are some really great Seter fans. Sami needs to really grow up and be one of the feisty heroines of Salem that we all know and want her to be. She cannot regress from this. It’s too big.”…King says.

“Will is also going to be very affected by this. He’s lived through so much. And now, he is has to live through the worst thing that can happen to a young man. Lucas is connected to many people. His siblings – Austin, Billie, Nicole, Jennifer, Mike, Philip – will all be affected greatly. His other family members – Alice, Maggie, Kate, Will – will be affected. It’s going to change things on the canvas for some time.”

“When the blog was going to go off this summer, I knew this would be the big end for LUMI so I told readers things may not end the way they think for all of their favorite couples. It was a very hard decision. Lucas is a great character, but his death will open up so many new doors and directions.”

Dattilo will last air on Friday, June 1st.

That is very bold, King, I applaud you for it.

This definitely made things more emotional and life changing, which is exactly how you want a storyline climax to be. Good work.

The greatest thing about your writing is that you always keep us guessing. You know how to shock the hell out of us which is amazing. You never go the safe route, you always go that other way. I am glad the blog is staying because it is truly one of the most entertaining blogs here.
