Sean Kanan finished his last day of taping today as AJ Quartermaine on General Hospital!

The actor who recently revealed he is leaving the ABC soap by mutual decision between himself and GH executive producer Frank Valentini, took a few moments to share his sentiments on his Twitter account.  And as daytime fans know, Kanan will now begin reprising the role of Deacon Sharpe on The Bold and the Beautiful!

Kanan tweeted:  “Bitter sweet day. Just taped final scene in Port Charles. Thanks 2 the cast & incredible crew. I will truly miss you all.  Thanks 2 all the GH fans who have supported me and AJ over the years. You make it all possible & worthwhile. Sorry 4 any disappointment.  Excited 4 the next chapter. So excited 2 slip back into Deacon Sharpe & work with uber talented Brad Bell and everyone at Bold and Beautiful.”

So sad to hear Sean wrapped his return as AJ?  What did you think of his tweets? Are you glad he is joining B&B? Comment below!

    I truley think they want (abc) the GH time slot for something else and they are trying to run it into the ground on purpose.

    It will be a sad day if they ever cancel GH. I just love this Soap and if it was a different time slot I’m sure it will be #1. The drama, the story lines and the acting is far superior to any other.

    I have watched this show off and on since it was in black and white. I was just getting to like AJ again. this is wrong.

  3. Cynthia says:

    I don’t watch B & B, but I wish Sean lots of luck. I am very sad that he left GH and extremely disappointed at the missed opportunity for story line. I wanted to see AJ redeemed. I agree with Sean about the stories he was given. I love Ron and GH but I totally understand Sean’s frustration. He is the only AJ for me. I hope the role is never recast. I was so excited when they brought AJ back from the dead. Once he was back, it seemed he was just used to further other storylines and his was just put on the back burner. I am glad he and Michael got to develop some type of relationship. I hope AJ finds out for sure that he didn’t kill Connie before Sean’s last airdate. I hope they just leave AJ alone and don’t re-cast. They should have used Sean while they had him. He is brilliant and did a wonderful day with the material he was given. I’d like to know what they had planned for AJ if Sean had stayed. Would they ever gotten around to giving him a good story? We will probably never know.

    He did really have some crappy storylines! I was really rooting for the A.J. character and the rebuilding of the Quartermaine clan. Sad, it’s ending this way. I liked the relationship that was developing between A.J. and Michael…

    well said Cynthia : and fans of

    Sean Kanan IS brilliant

    his acting choices : are fun to watch…. one can’t help but root FOR him

    he was this loveable hunk/teddy bear… was so expressive in his body language… and endearing…. his take on facial expression… tugged at your heart… you cared about him

    what i’ll miss the most… is his scenes with Michael… which made Michael bearable…. ugh! now it’s back to kiki and michael… isn’t she the busy body again.

    I suppose TPTB thought they could do more with Rick Lansing… and threw AJ to the curb…

    another talented… intelligent actor… gone by the wayside

    think:

    Kelly Sullivan : Connie
    Scrubs fans: Robin and Patrick
    Sean Kanan : AJ

    this was quality material to reap… and it just didn’t pan out… go figure

    I hope his new adventure at B&B is contract : he deserves it

    JP replied

    He does know that he didn’t kill Connie. Ava confessed which is why he was choking her when Sonny came in and shot him.

    Reply

    Cynthia replied

    Thank you. I forgot that he knows for sure that he didn’t shoot Connie. I’m glad about that.

    Mary SF replied

    I think AJ got sacrificed on the altar that is Robin. Once RC knew he could get KM for a short stint he dropped a lot stories he had in his head to focus on hers. They might have gotten around to AJ again at some point but SK didn’t want to sit around waiting for what may never happen and who could blame him.

    As for your comment about AJ learning the truth about Connie before SK leaves– the character already knows he didn’t shoot Connie but Ava did. Yet, whether everyone else will find out before the character leaves the canvas– I doubt it. Ava is too wound up in too many stories right now for the character to be put away for Connie’s murder or be dealt with by Sonny.

    This is just a guess but I think Ava and Sonny will eventually hook up and Sonny will fall in love with her- then find out Ava was the one who killed Connie– it would be interesting to see that conflict of knowing the woman he loves killed the other woman he loved. But RC rarely writes stories the way one would expect so who knows everything might come out in May sweeps.

    Cynthia replied

    I totally agree that AJ got sacrificed for the Robin storyline. I would have much preferred Robin stayed kidnapped. The show revolved around her when she was gone. Then she came back for a few months and screwed everything up just to leave again pushing AJ to the back burner for months. They threw him in jail and forgot about him. I love GH, but very disappointed with this.

    harry replied

    I don’t agree that Robin’s storyline had anything to do with the terrible writing which was afforded to the AJ character. And if it did had something to do with it, what does that tell you about Ron’s ability as an actor that he can’t multitask and juggle two storylines? Robin’s storyline had nothing to do with how this turned out as her return wasn’t even a bleep on the radar screen when AJ was in those idiotic Pickle Lila Relish scenes on The Chew. Your rationale just doesn’t jive with reality.

    Mary SF replied

    @harry– I will give you the Pickle Relish fiasco — that was just plain lame writing– RC could have penned a truly compelling corporate take over story with family members fighting over Edward’s estate. But I do believe RC is only capable of focusing on one major story line at a time, and since AJ was in jail for Connie’s murder it was easier to leave him there then actually write the story of the trail etc, while it was still fresh. I think all those months waiting for RC to get back to him made SK want to leave– I wasn’t personally blaming Robin or KM returning, but if that character wasn’t available it would have force RC to concentrate on the characters he had, like AJ.

    Elizabeth replied

    Yep. Ava is the poster child for what is wrong with GH – all the beloved long-time characters are either back burnered or used to prop her own story and no one cares about her.

    Junie replied

    Cynthis: AJ knew that he did not shoot Connie. And he knew who did. That is why he was at Ava’s apartment. Sonny just should have listened to AJ before he shot him. I agree though AJ was not given story decent story lines.
    When we say we do not care for an actor or story line, I think often what we do not care for is the writing. I wish SK well in his next venture.

    Thank you for the info about the Connie shooting. They went round and round so long with it, I forgot that he finally found out for sure.

    aj I cannot understand that at all

    Sand replied

    I 2nd what you said Cynthia – He was the FIRST AJ and was never given the chance to redeem that character – a sad day in GH history for sure and I’ve been watching since 1974. – Just pitiful to watch what they have done to this show. Good Luck to you Sean!!! – CBS knows quality!

    I still love the show, but I never want another AJ. If we can’t have Sean then we don’t need AJ.

    Good luck to him..I am happy that this talented actor will get a chance to perform and get great stories over at B&B

    Is it me or am I being a rude but the actor that plays Nathan is HORRIBLE, but good in the eyes, lol! What a BAD ACTOR…Yet good actors are put in the back burner and they leave because of lack of story.

    I don’t think you are being rude. I think Nathan the cop is a horrible actor. I’m glad Sean is going back to the B&B.

    Cynthia replied

    I am really hoping the actor who plays Nathan will get better along with that boring story. I love Silas and Donna Mills.

    GH50 replied

    You’re not being rude. The “actor” playing Nathan is an underwear model, literally. But this is what GH has turned into. Sean is a wonderful actor. I watched some clips of Deacon on YouTube and he is nothing like AJ. Sean has such range and natural ability and is able to transform a role and build a character.

    But we lose a real talent like Sean Kanan so TPTB can put Roger Howarth front and center. A guy who plays every character the same exact way with the same twitches, ticks, stuttering and physical mannerisms. GH has lost a great actor in SK and an important legacy character for an agenda that I am unable to comprehend.

    Reply

    JP replied

    I read somewhere that Roger Howarth was out too and that they were writing his character off the show.

    Sand replied

    I agree with you GH50 ( except with the RH part – not his fault they cancelled OLTL) ……less money brings in inexperienced actors and we get subjected to really BAD acting skills and lousy stories. The true stars of the shows ( they keep us watching) > want to get paid their worth and act great stories as well. Does ABC care?….NO – ABC as learned well over the years how to cheat ( the viewers and their staff included ) and they’re only getting better at it and profiting while we suffer. But as part of the audience but I just grab the remote and let the ratings speak for me.

    Cynthia replied

    Roger Howarth is incredible and a wonderful actor. I love watching good acting no matter who the character is. I hope the guy who plays Nathan improves.

    GH50 replied

    Sand, I don’t understand your point tha it’s not Roger Howarth’s fault that they cancelled OLTL. Does that mean you agree that he has no range and can only play Todd Manning, no matter what the role?

    Omar replied

    I did not WANT to go there GH50, but you are SO riggght! I love Roger’s Todd, but its so apparent that he is limited and not the best actor..Seeing him as Franco its like seeing him Todd. GH is really struggling now and going nowhere.

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    Well, rest assured he won’t get “great stories” over at B&B, although he’ll undoubtedly get more to do as an actor and be featured more prominently (until Brad Bell decides to “go in a different direction”).

    Can’t blame him for checking out of GH, however, much as I’ll miss him there. What a wasted opportunity; there were many interesting possibilities (especially as a perennial source of irritation and discomfort for Sonny, who gets away with far too much and with very few consequences given how appallingly he behaves, and I also though AJ and Liz were interesting together until the writers inexplicably took him down the Carly path), and yet they chose all of the boring (to say the least) ReFranco stuff over doing much of anything with AJ. I’ll never understand it (except to say that Howarth does have an extremely devoted fan base who will watch him in absolutely anything and believe he’s great).

    And Sonny wins again, of course. For a while I thought that was changing under Carlivati and Valentini, but I see now that it isn’t. Too bad; it makes the show really predictable and really uninteresting (to me, at least).

    Reply

    Junie replied

    While I do not care for Carlivati and Valentini in the least, (IMO it is their mission to run GH into the ground ) I feel I must say that Sonny can never lose as he is one of the main charecters. IF he lost they would have to send him to jail and then the charecter would be done. And as he can not ever lose is why he must have redeeming qualties.

    Ces replied

    he IS a bad actor and sorry but when he and Donna Mills are in a scene together, it’s torture!! Still trying to give Donna the benefit of the doubt because I did enjoy her on KL, but her stiff speech and acting and those glossy lips are making it hard for me to enjoy her in this role.
    This whole story should be scraped IMHO … and does Samantha really want to hear how wonderful Silas’ dead wife was? I know I wouldn’t want to – daily.

    I will never hate GH no matter what and it is so much better than it was a few years ago before Frank and Ron took over. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some things that I would change. The AJ thing is a big one but it is too late now anyway. Sean has filmed his last episode and moved on. So very sad.

    Bittersweet? I’m seriously bummed! Not only did A.J. make the show more interesting, it just kills me when these actors get such dream roles that I’d give my left fingernail for, then leave the show after they become so integral to it. What ever happened to cause the withdrawal of A.J. I am severely saddened and the show is yet again faltering. IMHO.

    I wish Sean the best and will follow him to B&B and look forward to his return. I said it before and I’ll say it again, this was a BIG BALL DROPPED by RC. Not Frank, I respect him as the producer of that show and has proven himself to make sound decisions. But RC purposely let the character of AJ come to this point.
    Remember in October 2012 when AJ was RC’s shiny new toy? Oh how quickly we forget. He purported to write him into a wall that he was obviously going to write him out of, but…..he dropped the ball.

    Would’ve been happier with the exit if the character AJ had gotten a good shake this time around by having him Save Jason’s life and those too working it out and forgiving each other, even if CBS allowed SB back for just one day to tape scenes, and then allowing the character of AJ to grow and mature at that stage to the Quatermaine family head we know RC intended him to be and leave PC for London to lead ELQ there. But unfortunately, I’ve known RC’s work for years now, and AJ’s exit will be in bad taste.

IF he’s still in the Port Charles universe…and unfortunately recast him…I hope at least the character…AJ…gets some justice. Even on the episode I’m watching today Carly’s bad-mouthing him…as he lies on his death bed…please!!! They had a love/hate thing this time around…there was an attraction…but yet they had Cartini had to get in the last zinger and repeat what a loser “AJ” is in her eyes. Ridiculous.

    So sorry to have lost Sean in this role…

    I don’t know why people keep saying that…or why they buy into that instead of just feeling frustrated. I don’t see how AJ was “a mess.” He had a drinking problem that he struggled with. OTHER people made him into a mess. They “messed” with him…put him down at every turn…disparaged him. I always found it maddening. You had every lowlife on the show criticizing AJ. Ridiculous. He was a good son, wanted to be a good father and was the victim of Carly, Sonny and Jason’s taking his son away from him…he became a great, loving father when Michael gave him a chance…he was honest and upfront with Duke when he came to work with him…he was appreciative of Alice who defended him…same with Skye. I LOVED this character and hate how they once again degraded his character. Horrendous understanding of human dynamics from the writers who are supposed to, if nothing else, portray human emotions/bonds, etc.

    Shay replied

    Totally agree with you, Rebecca1!…I am just sickened and dismayed that one of the few class acts left on GH is departing. The only thing that turned AJ into what some perceived as a so-called “mess” was the sub par writing, not to mention the total lack of imagination and suitable direction for his character t the hands of Ron C….as long as there was a concerted effort to showcase Sean’s talent and allow his role to shine in the scheme of what was happening in Port Charles, he did just fine. I thoroughly enjoyed his portrayal and rooted for him all the way. When the decision to put him on the backburner in favor of Sonny, Franco, the Jeromes, et al and suddenly become the scapegoat for Ava the Retroglam Psychopath’s evil activities, it became apparent that yet another beloved legacy character was well on his path to being trashed and ultimately destroyed…my only hope is that our friend AJ is not cruelly killed off but put into some sort of classic soap limbo so that perhaps when a future voice of reason starts penning the storylines, we can witness a triumphant return of this most underused and abused Quartermaine. Fondest farewells and best wishes to Sean K….he will be greatly missed!!!!!!

    rebecca1 replied

    And I with you Shay…petty of Ron…should’ve taken fan reaction when most asked why AJ suddenly was off canvas after having been so integral to the SL…should have heard a lot of the fans rooting for AJ to come out on top this time. Sean’s opinion of his character was spot on…and instead of respecting his opinion and taking it under consideration, he went in the opposite direction. Huge disappointment all around, Even IF they have him live and eventually recast…I loved Kanan in the role.

    harry replied

    What Rebecca said. AJ could have been a contender, and Ron treated him like a bum. It was you, Charlie, er I mean, Ron.

    I was never a fan either. I’m glad he is off GH. He was never a father to Michael and then he comes back with his sleezy way of getting back into Michaels life. Sonny is the only father he ever had. aj didn’t even know how to be a father years ago and still doesn’t. He can take his mom with him too. What has happened to her. She looks horrible.

    Sonny saw to it that AJ never had a chance to be a father to Michael, Sonny and Guza. Alcoholism is not a choice. Sean had everyone watching rooting for him. Chad and Sean were great on screen together. RC and his little digs, and his scummy writing is slowly destroying the show again. Guza made me just do it,. Turn the show off and FrankenRon are doing the same. Its a shame I have gone from watching in real time commercials and all to only watching after reading the boards to see if there is any reason to watch. I just deleted a few weeks in one and barley watching any of it. As for Roget H over Sean K. I shut ATWTs off when the actor came on there. Someone said up thread his scene chewing ,jokes and faces .WHO NEEDS IT ? Maybe ABC is trying to get out of the soap business.

    rebecca1 replied

    Dori Weller…WHAT?! He was never a father to Michael??? Are you kidding? Carly, Jason and Sonny STOLE Michael from him. “AJ” tried everything to get his son back and went so far as to kidnap him! And exactly what was sleazy about him? He came back…he was a loving son to Monica, an appreciative boss/friend to Alice, tried sooooo hard to be with Elizabeth, and was AMAZING with Michael. Their scenes together were a long time in the making…those of us who always felt the injustice hurled at “AJ” finally got to see him have moments alone with his son…to finally be able to explain to him how he didn’t leave him, always wanted him…how he was kidnapped and hung up on a meat hook by Sonny, etc…”Sonny was the only father Michael ever had?” That’s because Sonny stole him from AJ and threatened him and prevented him from ever being in his own son’s life. I don’t understand any viewer who didn’t get just how unfairly and ridiculously AJ was treated and how ridiculous to keep the writing going with AJ never being on top. His few loyal friends and family…Monica and Skye…and ultimately Michael…are the ones that were written with wisdom. The others? A mob boss, a mob enforcer, a mob wife…they’re the ones who criticized AJ…and THEY were better? Not.

    Sean’s depiction of a man wrongly persecuted and always belittled was amazing. He was constantly knocked down and always tried to strive ahead. I loved this character…and Sean was brilliant.

    I will miss the character of Aj, it wasn’t fair what they did to his character, He came back with so much promise and storyline to tell and show us all, and promises weren’t kept By FV and RC. Glad that SK has a job at B&B. It’s just sad that another Quartermaine is being killed off the show..Just not right. I keep hoping that at the last minute that Aj will survive and be in a coma and sent to where He’s being taken care of, until they are ready to wake up Aj and bring him Home, maybe he could go to Robin where she is taking care of Jason, and do miracles on both brothers.. They could come back together.. Anything is possible on a Soap. Why kill off a Q…again.

    It was SK’s decision to leave he is killing off himself, so to say. lol

    And AJ was written true to his character..
    A drunk, hot head, betrayer, game player wanting power etc..

    He is a flawed character who was in the process of redeeming himself . His story arc of redemption was interrupted rudely by very bad and disjointed writing.
    He is not a “semi bad” guy. That is Sonny, and Julian and Sean, and Ava and Faux Luke, and that hideous Dr O person.
    There are far too many bad guys on GH and the good guys are dying off.

    He should have been brought back as Jason. AJ’s character was always a screw-up. Good riddance – Michael is better off without him in his life. I look forward to seeing him as Deacon on B&B. Now they should recast Jason.
    Looking forward to Maxie’s return. I see a great couple possibility with Maxie and Nathan! Loving Nathan’s character.
    Now if they can kill off Kiki, Silas and new Franco and put Ava in jail for triple murder…even though the actress that plays Ava is awesome. Britch can join her in jail.

I would have put some twists about the Quartermaines backstory and give conflict for AJ and maybe new character. Its a shame that you are leaving again and good luck to you and your loved ones!

    Losing SK is a big loss to the show, and totally unnecessary. Another Quartermaine gone – I can’t believe what they’ve done to that poor family. Who’s left? Tracy and Monica? Best of luck SK – you will rock on B&B!

    I am sad that Sean is leaving. But I understand why. I think he is a good actor that got bad storylines. His character got thrown under the bus. I hope he gets all that he deserves at B&B. Best of luck to you Sean.

    I am sorry to see him go as Michael just got to know him. I know as actors they want to go on but he did play a good AJ and I love the old characters that came back. I have been watching GH for 51 yrs now. My Mom used to watch it and when I was sick and stayed home from school I would watch it. Glad to see Audrey is still alive, I wish they would show her and Leslie a little more. Just because they are old they don’t need to be written off.

    SK was a more sympathetic AJ than the other Billy Warlock. It’s a shame RC’s concentration is on his new characters and not on the GH legacy characters.

    I truley feel he was done wrong by execs on GH and should have been given a better storyline as many other cast left on the show…he was a valued character (family member) and he could have taken over ELQ!

    Huge mistake made by the GH writers to give AJ such krappy storylines and turn him into Sonny’s whipping boy. But I can hardly blame the highly talented Sean Kanan for want to leave Port Charles. Sad to see him and another Quartermaine go. Now, please send Sonny to prison for his crimes.

    AJ was always a screw up and he was written true to form by the writers. Will miss him but there are plenty of other characters to write for. Hopefully more Quartermains will come back when Ned comes back.

    I read Mr. Kanan’s recent remarks on this site complaining that there was no “great love story” written for A.J. This tells me one of two things: Either Mr. Kanan doesn’t understand his character, and/or Mr. Kanan doesn’t understand what his body looks like in 2014. Either way, he is not a suitable candidate for a romantic lead.

    I liked Billy as AJ. I was never fond of Sean as A.J., and I’ve been watching Sean from the beginning, as the 1st A.J. Something about that walk of his, it’s so over the top, and its TOO MUCH. I’m glad to see him go, but not glad to see the character die, if that is what will happen. I hope not. Bye to Sean, save the character, NOT enough many Quartermaines left around. Crazy.
    Good Luck in your future Sean.

    The AJ character was front and center for almost 2 years or so. They have to let the other characters have the same opportunity. Otherwise you get tired of seeing that same character on all of the time. I was starting to feel that way as far as AJ was concerned. Many of the other characters are on and off for weeks at a time. He should have enjoyed the time off until a new storyline picked up for him again. AJ being a Q and related to so many key characters (Michael, Monica, Tracy,etc), it was inevitable. He won’t last too long on B&B cause the Deacon Sharpe character isn’t really related nor have a much of a past with the current main characters. It was the same way when he was on Y&R. There is only so much you can write for that character. I think he is being a big baby! I love him as AJ, but don’t like him as Deacon Sharpe.

    HUH? Normal and sane soap writers finish the story before the proceed to a new storyline. Ron would leave AJ and others on a cliff for months on end, leaving us fans hanging with him, while he introduced new characters and their own insane storyline.
    AJ was NOT front and center for 2 years at all. What you posted here, Carly, makes no sense.

    Carly replied

    Harry I obviously disagree. If you think hanging for months is a big deal, go check out Y&R where Phyllis has been in a coma for a year, Jill has been searching for a music box mystery for a year, Sharon has been going crazy for a year, and on and on…. Their stories have been all hanging for a year with no resolution in site. If I don”t watch it for a month, it is the same old stories. Talk about frustrating.

    In my opinion, even considering hanging for few months,GH moves relatively quickly as compared to other soaps.

    Hope he enjoys BB. I honestly don’t think he is needed on GH right now. I wish they would get rid of Ava now. And Britt. I love the villains but these two are so annoying. There’s nothing tying Britt to GH after the baby is returned to his real parents. Please send her and her annoying mother packing!!!!!

    So sorry to hear this. A.J. has been a part of GH for many years and the Q’s have dwindled so much in recent years. I think there were so many things that could have been done with his character and so much more for his and Micheal’s relationship to work out. A relationship with Elizabeth or rekindle an old one with Carly. It’s so sad to see so many old characters being written off the show when they have so much more to offer.

    The writing on the show is just dreadful. AJ should have been around to see Sonny suffer when Michael learns the truth, although that will take months and months if not years, so I don’t blame the actor playing AJ to want out! I mean, is AJ any more miserable than that creep, Sonny, who manages to never face justice of any kind.??? Carly is not going to tell Sonny squat about what AJ told her. And that Ava Jerome person is never going to face justice either. Again, the writers of GH are hopeless and totally lacking in imagination….which gets us to their having Frau whatever her name is, bringing the kidnapped baby to Elizabeth’s house!! really??? Totally dumb. Are they trying to aggravate the hell out of us or what??? I’m about ready to kiss this loser puppy goodbye. For good. Forever.

    How disappointing to see that the writers killed off AJ. What is wrong with them? Do they want to kill of Monica and Tracy also and bring down the entire family. Also a consideration…what the hell did they do to Luke? I don’t like this storyline with Luke going up against Sonny. They have been friends for years. The writers have some splaining to do. No I did not misspell the word!!!!

    So Disappointing to see them kill off AJ…they could have at least found a different actor to play the part of AJ…while they had him in bed….would have been an easy transaction..not like they haven’t changed Carly’s …I think they should wake him up from the dead with a dream or something… with a different actor…they still can..after all its a soap…

    I was beginning to like AJ on GH. I really wished he would have stayed liked to seen his character part go another direction.. I agree with Sean Kanan the character role for AJ wasn’t written to well…I think if they have changed his role some he would have been a good hit…people were starting to like AJ …
    I hate when they change characters it takes a while to get used to one character soon as you do they change it again do not like….

    I have never watched GH as I live outside of the US and they don’t air it here so i cant really comment on that side of things but I have been watching B&B on/off for about 16years so I got to see Deacon in action. I loved how well he was written he was and his romance with Amber( I really hated how Y&R trashed it by the way it was really disappointing) and I hope they bring his son into it and they really try develop the character more than what happened back in 2012 with Hope’s wedding. However from what I understand SK went and did GH before brad bell could do much with the character so really the writers have probably had a lot of time to think on how they want it to go considering SK called BB himself. I can’t wait for Deacon to finally dish out some Payback for making him choose between his freedom resulting in seeing his son on one hand and his daughter on the other. I also could definitely see Quinn hooking up with Deacon or if they bought Amber back and reconciled them what would be amazing as well what ever happens I’m excited and its all in the hands of the amazing Bradley Bell and his talented writing team!!! Welcome back DEACON SHARPE!!!!!

    I am truly fed up with the story lines at GH. Now it’s exceptionally boring and they got rid of AJ. He was fun to watch. The story line with Robin coming back and then had to leave to help Jason if he is alive etc was just a waste. Right now the storyline is really boring and please whatever you do don’t get rid of Julian Jerome. He is at least worth watching once in awhile when you are truly bored and have nothing to do. Please come up with some story lines that keep you wanting to watch everyday.

    I am sorry to see him go. I get the animosity between A.J. and Tracey’s Character. However it would have been nice if they could have ran ELQ together. Developed AJ’s character into a more sophisticated, refined character. Perhaps him and Sonny could have even developed a relationship. I guess every soap needs a drunk. All the best to you Sean.
