I do wish that twitter poster would make his points and lots are valid but without making fun of the actors looks and weight

I'm okay with him just being written off. He's a terrible character and what else will be left for him anyway? I can never keep up with the comings and goings on the show because of the taping schedule but aren't Abigail and Chad leaving in like 5 years?

Few of us can. What usually happens is someone posts casting news when it originally breaks. Then in six months (when the actor is about to air) someone else makes a thread, as if it's the first time we are hearing the news.  Then the rest of us start posting as if it were the first time because we forgot. Then someone else says, "Hey, this was posted sometime last year".  It's happened more than once.

And then when the actor finally appears we hear news he is leaving after just appearing on screen for the first time......LOL

It really is a clusterf*ck. I swear, it felt like Nadia Bjorlin was in and out of maternity leave for a 5 year stretch.

I'm pretty sure it felt that way because it was that way.  Not that I begrudge her. At least this is one time a soap did right by a female cast member, instead of firing them for gaining weight, aging or having children.

    • Probably the only good moment of the finale... And wow... ️     
    • Wes was suppose to be jock but after the dream season the story was changed.

    • There is some stuff for me to nitpick here: * The Wes Parmalee story was definitely a misfire but did it really matter in the scheme of things? Even in its best days, the show had its fair share of dud stories; Dallas for better or for worse wasn't a well-plotted show (much better than Dynasty, mind you). You tuned in because it had great characters. * Killing Bobby was the mistake. Boy, did Duffy f*** up there.  But, yeah, the dream was... a bold choice. That I could have almost accepted if they had been coherent how they tied the loose ends. But it was a last minute bit of cleverness and they clearly hadn't thought the follow-up through. Any fan can list the long list of things that were left over from "before the dream" that it made no sense not to be addressed again if the dream season was a dream. * I personally think Kristin was a powerful character when she was on but her value would have dwindled over time and I am not upset she was written out. I do not agree she had years of stories in her although they could have kept her alive and sprung her for a surprise revenge later (typically the kind of character it would have been fun to bring back for the lead-up to a JR comeuppance finale). * I don't think Jenna was a well-written character but she provided a useful obstacle for Pam/Bobby and I was OK with that. And the minute you accept a different actress playing the same character, you have to suspend disbelief as to the inconsistencies with the earlier tale. It wasn't absurd to revisit it and it was quickly resolved so ... fine. Again, Dallas wasn't that good at plotting but the character interaction worked in the grand scheme of the Pam/Bobby story. * Lucy was useless from Day One.
