Brady definitely feels played out. He's continuously driven story since Eric debuted, really. That's a long time and a LOT of relationships. LOL. 

 

I wouldn't say Chloe is played out. A stronger direction would help. More scenes with Belle and Shawn would help. Bringing on her sister would help. 

 

JKJ chews the scenery when Philip has to go all Investigation Discovery angry. The triangle has potential but it's all so flat and boring and feels like Philip doesn't stand a chance.

 

I think JKJ has aged fine. Nadia didn't need the injections.

 

Chloe/Brady/Philip writes itself so it shouldn't be so lackluster or feel like an afterthought.

 

Nobody expects them to de-age anyone.

 

Yep on Kirsten Storms.

Brady along with Rafe need to leave in my opinion. Time for them to set sail and bring back other characters.

Yeah he does. And unfortunately, angry Philip is basically all we get these days. I like JKJ but he sounded constipated when Philip was yelling at Chloe on Friday. LOL

I agree that Chloe needs a stronger direction. She's on plenty but doesn't have a real story outside of whether she's going to bang Philip or Brady. It's literally just the same scene on repeat. Philip catches Brady and Chloe in a close moment, misinterprets things, and gets angry. It's so stale for all three characters.

EM has aged amazingly well. I do think Brady needs a rest or at least a fresh story that has nothing to do with his love life. All he does is jump from woman to woman. It's time for Brady to start snorting cocaine again, lol.

This is true, they aged Brady 10 years older that the group he was suppose to be in. 

That's because Kyle Lowder always looked ridiculous.

Chloe has had every possible demeaning story in the last 20 years short of being abducted by aliens or sold into slavery. I love Nadia but the potential there is burnt AFAIC. She should be gone 5-10 years but Ken Corday can't stop rehiring her (or a lot of other folks).

A new direction would help. Maybe @KMan101is right and they should finally bring in Joy and have her cause problems for Chloe

Chloe and many others need a new direction. However that is the thing with soaps, it about creating drama between couples. 

Why can't Chloe run a successful music school funded by drug lords?

Another could be age her daughter to a teen and cause tension between her and the daughter.  Daughter becomes a massive pop singer and goes on a downfall spiral with the success, that leads to drugs, alcohol and do a Britney story where she is under a conservatorship by her mother and the dark side of it.

Days is on fire! Thanks Ron Carlivati for your brilliance! You have the viewers hooked! They claim that they don't watch but yet they complain about every scene (that they don't watch). Thank you again Ron Carlivati for keeping Days on the air and for keeping us watching!!!!

Chloe only has a son, but yeah, I get what you mean. Those all sound like good ideas, and they would be different from what we’ve seen before, rather than just a repeat of a triangle.

I will say it often feels like Chloe is just ... here to be here so I can understand the feeling of 'played out'. I'd like a little more investment. A POV would help.

I do think it's weird that Chloe is a single mom who doesn't raise her son. I guess he's still living with Craig and Nancy? Not that we'd ever see him anyway, but why not bring him to Salem? I always forget that Parker even exists.

 

lol I have too. I'd probably prefer to live with Craig and Nancy too LOL. Imagine the fun and the arguments. I wish they were around. Why not use them ala Justin/Adrienne-Bonnie? 

 

Ron should have teenage Parker find out Philip is his bio daddy and then we can bring back Stephanie.

Exactly. So many things they could do with her. Joy could be in the music industry. There you go. And they dropped the ball on Chloe/Claire.

I can see the burn out on Chloe. The character needed longer than just a year/few months rest here and there.

It is weird they don't pop up more often. PD does it on Y&R so she is clearly open to doing one episode at a time to advance story.
But I guess Chloe has no story to advance.

I am personally of the opinion no character is ever "played out". They may not inspire the current writing regime but with so many layers and history, inspiration can turn a character into something interesting again.
Clearly hasn't happened to Chloe or Phillip or Brady in a while.
But look at Lucas: the writing for Lucas has been atrocious for 90% of his time on the show and when he was written out we can't say he was missed story-wise (I still missed him but he wasn't essential to stories).
And yet with a writer that wanted to play him it has worked so beautifully!

Poor Lucas has been a joke for a long time for the same reasons as Chloe, Phillip, Rafe, Shawn, Belle, etc. Corday can't let them go yet refused to invest in them when they actually worked (not that Rafe ever did IMO). Lucas escaped this fate for a long time and was frontburner until E.J. become fully ascendant, but he's been the goat for years despite the brief recent resurgence. That will end now. And yet they keep them on because Corday can't accept letting things go.

I totally forgot Chloe had a sister named Joy. lol.  Reasons why i thought she had a daughter. Same thing could happen, Joy is aged to early 20's and becomes a massive famous pop singer. Chloe gets jealous and hooks her on booze and pills to convince her parents to create a conservatorship and ala , Britney storyline in the making.
