I love me some Shane Donovan too! I loved seeing him and Kimberly at Alice Horton's funeral. Their scenes were good. Looking forward to seeing Shane. With that being said, I hope his return is brief and moves story. Right now, DAYS has a large cast with tons of returned favorites standing on the sidelines. I never understand when I see Kayla because she's always played as a dayplayer. DAYS needs to tighten up its story and cast. I would like to see more Adrienne, Justin and Sonny as they are already in Salem! Perhaps, Shane could return to escort one of his progeny to Salem. DAYS could expand it's younger set with characters who are the children of fan favorites. In return, Melanie, Chad and Gabi could leave.

According to rumor, Shane and Kim's son Andrew will be turning up in Salem too.

Apart from Will's story, these writer's seem a little weak when it comes to writing for that age range. Chad has been Will's closest friend for the past two years. Why is he not a part of Will's story now?

I read that a casting call was out on Days for character of "Andrew" and posted it, not sure if that was their son's name, as Mark said it could be a different character...but if true Andrew will be Shane and Kim's son and opens the door for Patsy come for a visit to introduce Andrew on the canvas...I would love this I idea better then all the Roberts but not Lucas, Billie...Ahhh...not very interested, Patrick I decided you and Carrie need to go back to Switzerland. Those two started off promising and petered out when Patrick turned into a little girl Puzzled . The fallout from Abby is going to be fun! This actress is very good and getting better all the time, I love this younger actress.

My Nicole is going to have a miracle pregnancy and I'm ALL FOR IT! Innocent She and big beautiful daddy is going to be fighting over this child...always a connection like Sami! Dueling mothers because once the shit hits the fan, Nicole & Sami is enemies once again...bring it ON!

I agree too with SoapA, about Chad. They completely dropped the ball the last 3 weeks on Melanie & Chad, I was sorta diggin' those two. Where is Chad? Gabi is MIA, limited Maggie & Victor lately. Are we seeing the newer direction? This past week was much better and yesterday's and TODAY'S episode rocked! Marlena & Sami throw down!

harlee, sometimes I don't know why the soaps bother to have a teen and young adult population when they generally get the crappiest stories.

None of them come close to matching ATWT and GL when it comes to writing good teen drama. Even under bad production teams, ATWT showcased good stuff for Nancy, Lisa, Lucinda, Barbara, and Lily's kids.

When Carrie and Sami were kids, now that was good writing and we are still seeing that today! I love the history of it all. (althought it makes me feel really old!) I would have to agree Andrew will be Shane n Kims kid would be a nice addition also agree the teen storied I do not like. He would be the only other Brady besides Will, Abbbie and Melony are Horton's I thought they were heading in the Chad and Gabbie route with the whole sexy photo shoot but that faded fast. In my opinion Will and Abbie are the only 2 that will catch my attention. Im curious to what is going to bring Shane back to Salem tho? I wish it was sooner to help John and Hope that would bring back old memories. DAys was always such a tight nit family, thats why I have always been so loyal!!

SoapA, The chemistry between characters Chad & Melanie was definitely there to be exploited building towards May sweeps, Gabi has to became more fixative on Chad and turn bad girl...nothing on any of these characters the last 3 weeks. I don't want to see a drive-by but the building of turmoil for them to be together...if done properly could be a very romantic storyline...the struggles of young love. Love William's story is carrying the ball right now in quality. Expanding the beats of true family drama, fallout of Sami, William's coming out, this is where I think the writers could use this to cause underlining conflict between Kate & Stefano, she supports her grandson, Stefano is old world and against it. A way to do a triangle with Kate\Ian\Stefano...I like that idea. They really need as you said SoapA come up with better young adult stories, Abby as a model "snooze city" as mentioned I believe Mark (loved it) have Abby work in publicity department of Mad World being like Jack "Brenda Starr" Smile Every young adult has aspirations of being a model? Please Mar-Dar you can be more creative then this dry story? Puzzled

Yes that is the simple truth of P&G's casting directors at their soaps were the best in the soap business of finding young talent, I feel.

ATWT & GL always had children on families present usually the family core, GL we watched the childhood friendship of Bill, Michelle, Ben all present for 9 years growing into young teens. Young adults 4 Musketeers, Bridge\David\Kat\Julie\Dylan...just saying Smile
