I wouldn't be surprised if they did bring back JT... Probably where they are headed. Glen/Barb will probably die in some freak accident and they give custody of JT to Bo/Hope.

Hopefully.

I'd rather Chelsea die than Zack. And it was SO obvious when they started actually USING Zack this past month, and all those cute moments. You know they did that so there could be flashbacks galore.

I really like Zach but I don't think he's very big that it will hurt the show. They still have JT who will most likely come back.

My thoughts exactly. And, if the show's still around, that's a good deal because JT is connected to a major couple but not related by blood- it could, in theory, help them mix it up more easily in the future.

I also agree with whoever said this is what Days needs. It makes me want to tape and watch, just out of curiosity (well, this and the potential for good Carrie/Sami stuff). They'd better be careful with the follow-up, though. They haven't exactly been good with that.

The Kristen potential-return deal...not as exciting. I don't know if I'd be willing to sit through the magic mask/plastic surgery excuse that would be necessary to write the character back in.

He's really not that important to the future - we have Theo, Claire, Will, and Abby.

I'd say he or Theo are the most expendable babies because BOPE already have Shawn, and they're probably going to bring J.T. back to be the next generation, as well.

But he's their real son not JT...I dunno how people can just write him off like that for the sake of story..It's still their kid...

JER has to be planning on getting rid of Chelsea very soon, I would hope so for the actresses sake if anything. i hope she is mentally prepared for what she's about to get.

We aren't writing him off we just don't see him as the end all to be all. He is the future sicne Days already has lots of young stars (they got the 30 somethings I still consider yound, the 20 somethings and then Abby, Max and that other girl who I loath and hate). They can also go and bring back some young people like Stephanie Johnson or some young Brady or Horton kids. They have Theo, Claire, Jack Jr...they have lots of future here. JT would allow them more flexibility to pair him off when he is aged and there are lots of stories you can do with him since he had lots of health problems. Bope raised him so he is just as much their kid as Zach just like Zach is just as much Lexie and Abe's kid as Theo. This won't kill Days or its future. It is not desperation and it won;t be cancelled because of this. If this story lives up to the hype and what is being said (and I think it will since Ali sweeney said KA and the story was phenomenal and that article about Days going for emmys sounded real promising), it will garner Days respect, media buzz, and big ratings and maybe even emmys (don't jinx it). I love Zach but bad things happen in life and this is a soap opera and this stuff happens beause without drama we don't have shows.

I can see the outrage and I am sure Days expects it but I this is about the story. Will this hurt like hell to watch? Yes and that is where it will succeed and be a great story. That is what its supposed to do-this type of story is designed to create uproar since we care for Zach. We watched him grow up and finally reunite with his parents 2 years into his life. Drama like this is suppsoed to hit you in the gut and tug at your heart and make you mad, sad, angry, etc. That is what makes a show great and has been what many great soap tales have done successfully on many shows. There is outrage whenever a belvoed character is killed but sometimes it is necessary for conflict and the future. Days has had this in mind for awhile-you can tell-and its not lazy or senseless. We will see the purpose for doing this in the new year and then we can sit back and truly evaluate whether this was right or not. My gut tells me that people will be surprised at how good this is and how Days could ever pull this off as good as it did. Just a feeling. :)

...That post about Days going for the emmys says it all-they have written a tremendous sotry tht will front burner Bo and Hope. The fallout won't miss IMO-I think Days is serious this time about doing this right. I also think that if basklash is too great they will bring back JT but I think once peopel see it play out they will realize how good of a story this is. I repeat this is a drama and alot of times in real life its not fair. Tradgedies often happen in bunches and that is what is happening on Days. Its not lazy its drama and conflict and is what every soap needs to thrive. It won't kill Days in the long run since Zach was never seen and they could just bring JT or have Bope have another kid or something if they want to.

I doubt it Evan-the ratings won't nosedive because HH and demos don't always refelct fanbases unless couples break up. This is the type of story that brings ratings up-a character with ties to the canvas's core familes dying to save another child. The only way it backfires is if people refuse to watch because of JER still writing but the people who count int the ratings don't care about that. They want quality and something attention grabbing. That is why this won't flop IMO because if its as good as it sounds people will watch and stay. The people that won't will be the people that don't count in ratings and such-mostly the rabid fanbases. JER has been doing great of late and I think this will be great-and this is coming from someone who felt the same as you about him 7 months ago. Its horrible yes but soaps need drama and Days hasn't had something like this in a long time. It needs this IMO.

Sorry, but I think you are obviously living in your own world regarding DAYS. You are still saying how ratings are great while in reality DAYS already losts their winning in 18-39 cathegory, is not doing good in HH and is barely holding in 18-34, where is it only a matter of time when GH will win. (DAYS is now only 0,2 points ahead) No matter what a spin Corday tries to give it, this story is not about giving Bo/Hope a huge story or making everyone believe DAYS is really changed and totally different show. This is just an another Reilly´s crazy attempt to destroy Bo/Hope, so he can have his quadrangle. I´m willing to bet as soon as B/H split over this, Bo will stay at Billie, who will be the only one on his side, while Patrick will side with Hope and give her his support. That´s the only reason why this story exist.

Btw. It´s laughable to believe B/H will get some emmy material from this. Jack´s dying could be a very powerfull story for both M/M, but Reilly never writed it that way, its only purpose was to force Frankie between them. Heck, even Abe´s blindness could have been very interesting, if Reilly actually cared atleast slightly about this and don´t make Abe blind just to give Lexie some reason to have affair with Tek. Why you believe this will be different? It will not. Reilly doesn´t care about writing real serious deep human drama. He is making all these potentialy very interesting stories just to force his crazy ideas onto characters. Yes, some people are able to accept his manipulation, but most of them sees this as a character destruction. This is going to be perfect example and combined with already very negative approach most of DAYS viewers have, it can easïly result in a disaster.

This is horrible! Killing Zack off is absolutely dumb and one of the most horrible things DAYS has ever done. Zack is important to the future of DAYS. I say kill Clair off, kill Chelsea off, or kill Jack off instead.

ITA Killing of Zack is a big mistake and I hope it backfires on them, seriously. I will watch for the acting casue its going to be incredible but thats about it. Why not kill Clair off or stupid Chelsea off?!
