    Chillin’ with The CHILL! Loved it guys! I sure hope that Days comes to their senses and plays out this story. I don’t think they understand the Chill factor! This duo have all the chemistry that Bo and Hope and Patch and Kayla and Roman and Marlena had. In fact they remind me of Jack and Jennifer my fav Days couple. Days supercouples have always had some sort of controversy about them. From Doug and Julie (step father and daughter) to Jack and Jennifer (rapist and a rape victum). We Days viewers are not put off like some other shows viewers. Go for it! Come on execs be brave!

    Eagerly awaitin’ me some Chill….the pairings with Gabi and Abby (anyone norice the names haven’t been said together on Days?) are goin’ nowhere. Although Will would be cute with Gabi’s HERMANO……

    Thanks for the interview! Love the idea of CHILL and wish Days would have the balls to go there! There are so many great storytelling opportunities there and it would involve a majority of the cast in umbrella storytelling.

    NBC should give Casey and Chandler webisodes for their bromantic adventures since they are really funny together and on twitter.

    So agreed with all of the “Chill” comments! I noticed the chemistry, right off the bat, and even my 85 year mother noticed it! I just think that DOOL would be too chicken-shit to ever go there.
