Word on the street according to Joe Mascolo is that he hates his current murder mystery plot on days. This is in a SOD interview. Here is an excerpt from that piece:

"Every single thing that went wrong in Salem was Stefano’s fault. Every single thing. He got blamed for everything. When Stefano got blamed for this business with Lexie illness, I got very angry. Stefano and his daughter had an absolutely pure relationship. I adore Renee Jones (Lexie). When she came to my dressing room and said, “I’m going to be leaving soon, and this is what is going to happen,” I said, “Oh, no!”

And when it came to his relationship with EJ he had this to say:

"It was very difficult. The bottom line Stefano is will always be about family. So when they wrote that, I couldn’t figure it out. In all honesty, Stefano nor EJ would have had wanted it that way. As a matter of fact when James Scott (EJ) saw the business that Elvis wasn’t Stefano’s son, we both went, “No, that’s wrong.” We didn’t want it that way.”

As for the ending Sake:

“Stefano and Kate were solid, and in love, and I thought breaking them up was such a bad move.”

But don't worry about him being dead. He'll be back.

Can we safely assume that the

Can we safely assume that the material that was written about Stefano being the one that is directly/indirectly responsible for Lexie dying and for Stefano and EJ no longer father and son and the ending of Stefano and Kate was written by the writing team that was fired not too long ago and replaced or is this all under the new writing team?

It was under the fired regime. Days tapes 3 months in advance. They did make a few changes and re-shoot some things but could not x out the entire storyline.

I think the old regime (given that they had no problem destroying the continuity of Stephano and EJ, and blaming Stefano for Andre's madness) probably planned on passing the mantle of evil villian to Ian, who apparently was going to be the 'real' phoenix. They probably were going to have Lexie be the killer....after all who else would check his pulse like the killer did other than a medical professional.

But given that the new regime is coming in, and reportedly offering new stories to Joe M., I think they will cop out and say that Ian is the killer. That way they can blame Ian for trying to blow up the Scooby gang and bring back Stefano. It is very odd that there was not one scene with Ian and Stefano confronting each other in the whole time he was on, isn't it?? They probably planned on making Ian EJ's dad, and a true Dimera, with Stefano's life being a big mistake.

Fortunately, we have new regime who will hopefully bring some of this chaos to an end.
