Courtesy/IMDB

More departures at DAYS?  Report from Daytime Royalty has that Molly Burnett (Melanie) who returned last year as Melanie Jonas is done at the NBC soap opera and that she finished taping back in December.

Burnett had been involved in a romantic storyline with Eric Martsolf’s Brady Black, while getting in the mix with Theresa (Jen Lilley) and Serena (Melissa Archer).

The Daytime Royalty posts reads: “As has been rumored in recent months, Molly Burnett (Melanie) wrapped up her six-month “Days” stint in December, so look for Melanie to last air around the end of May.”

With Burnett gone, in addition to other recent exits from Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Melissa Archer, the show looks to be prepping for its 50th anniversary run. The announcement of Peter Reckell (Bo) and Stephen Nichols (Patch) has excited long time viewers, who also hope more good news is on the way with other former faves set to make a return before the golden anniversary begins!

What do you think about the report on Burnett’s departure? How do you think she will be written out of DAYS? Comment below!

    This is actually GOOD news…now maybe Days will be smart and bring back Melissa and Sarah for Maggie to fuss over—Melissa could be keeping a secret from Jen and the rest of Salem…the father of her grown son Nathan is Jack, Jen’s late husband…this could be a short story arc for the shows 50th…

    Had Melissa Archer came on as Sarah Horton they couldve still done the elephant storyline this way to tie it in with other characters: Sarah had sent many gifts from Africa to Maggie and Victor for their anniversary which included the elephant statue…Sarah had accidentally killed a man, unaware she was set up, and was blackmailed by another man who is using her to smuggle diamonds into the U.S. and some are hidden in the statue…Sarah arrives in Salem to retrieve the elephant but Maggie had donated it to a church auction fundraiser hosted by Father Eric who has returned to the priesthood…Sarah knows Eric—she worked with him in Africa and was attracted to him…Sarah arrives at the auction too late…the elephant was sold to Chad Dimera who is smitten by the older Sarah…Maggie dislikes Chad after Victor nearly looses all his money and had a heartattack after Chad tricked Victor into investing in a phoney business deal…Sarah is warned to get the diamonds back or Maggie, who is being held hostage, will be killed…Sarah breaks into the Dimera mansion to steal the elephant but Chad catches her…Chad threatents to call the police unless Sarah sleeps with him…Sarah confesses to Chad why she needs the statue…Chad finds the diamonds inside and knows Sarah is telling the truth…but will Chad give Sarah the diamonds to save Maggie’s life?

I grew up on Days and why do tall always take off the ones that make Days and keep the people dont, Teresa needs her butt cut. Yall took off Samatha, EJ, Tony, you all keep on, the show will die out!

    TKK replied

    @ Evelyn Hodges – Jimh(leave it to beaver) was making up an alternative storyline, one that would have brought Sarah Horton back. I actually like his plot better than what the DOOL writers gave us. Good job, Jimh(leave it to beaver). You need to apply for a job with DOOL. :)

    Keep Molly!!! She is such a good actor. I love the chemistry between Brady and Mel. Take the guy that plays Will. He’s not very good.

    inger replied

    I am a big fan of Melanie (Molly Burnett) she is great and the chemistry Brady and Melanie is just romantic and so lovely and sexy!!! Hope you will bring her back.
    She added so much to Days of Our Lives.

    Jackie McLovin replied

    Please bring Melanie back please she was the best thing that ever happened to Days :( I’m in tears she is a very talented actress and she is so needed in your show. Take out Will he sucks as an actor and ruins the show, my TV gets stuffies thrown at it when he’s on. I’m sorry but honest. Please please PLEASE bring her back she truly makes the show and I have hooked my friends on Days due to the actress. I’ve watched Days for over 30yrs now and she is so awesome for your show, so talented, so normal and fun to watch she’s a natural. She needs to come back oh by the way you can gat that slime ball Mr Clide Westen to follow Will off the show. OK you can trade Will for her return…….
    Please come back Mel

    Molly Burnett is the tie that binds two of the families. She totally makes sense to keep as a character. Big mistake to end her stay on Days. It was great seeing her more or less “grow” as an individual as the stories progressed. She overcame her past to become one of the better characters on the show. But, she still had that edgy quality…. Because that was who she was about.

    She used this to the good at the end. I think morally she is a good example of strength.
    Again, you should definitely bring her back.

    bella replied

    Molly needs to come back pregnant with Brady’s child. Victor needs take Teresa’s baby so Brady and Melanie can raise him. Poor Jennifer needs a storyline where she’s not fighting someone. Her and Raif need to hook up. I think Zander and Niclole are hot together, but i want him to be good. I hate the Clyde storyline. Sonny should leave Will for Paul. Eve and JJ story was plain GROSS. These storylines are getting boring. I love watching Chad. I don’t understand bringing people back just to write them off again. Why bother? It just makes us fans mad. The writers need to write better storylines. I want to see love triangles, passion. I’m sick of seeing pill heads, drunks.

She’s not a very good actress and never smiles! She always has this blank, constipated look on her face. And as far as Sonny leaving….DOOL should keep him and just replace Guy Wilson with a better actor to play Will! I’m sorry but, the kid cannot act very good!

    Molly Burnett was one of the best actors on the show. Screw all the haters, she was up for an Emmy twice within her first 4 years on the show – that says something. I hope to see her back in the near future, if not on the big screen in movies or other T.V shows. BIG fan of her!

    Her first stint started out as Melanie being tough, yet bubbly. This stint she became babbly. She should not have come back under the hack writers.

    Maybe she’ll be back under the new regime.

    Melanie is a good character. Molly B is a wonderful actress and has given Melanie a loveable and substantive personality. She made the character interesting. Bad choice to let her go.

    It sounds like this return was always meant to be a short-term one. Always thought Molly was a great actress and I look forward to seeing her in future projects. Hopefully they leave the door open for a return, if only because I will enjoy seeing people get so mentally unhinged about her coming back.

    Jim, the amount of hatred directed toward Molly on some boards has been nothing short of unbelievable. I can understand a little, but there are some boards where people look at you like you support Charles Manson if you’re a Melanie or Daniel fan. That’s all. :)

    CeeCee replied

    You’re right, of course, Jimh. I loved Melanie before she left. I will always love Molly. But, the character lost something when she came back. I do not know what the reasoning was? Okay, she came for a visit? She does have ties in Salem. But, why would TPTB start a relationship between her and Brady?
    I was starting to get really interested in this new storyline……where she seemed to be the one to figure out what has happened to Theresa’s baby. However, as usual, something always and endlessly trip up a potentially effective storyline.
    Thank you for defending those of us who share our opinions freely, jimh. Isn’t it amazing how some get their boxers/panties in a twist if their opinion does not coincide with anyone else’s?
    It is an opinion site, people!!!!

    Gage replied

    I love Molly and I think she was and is a great actress. Though I have to agree that they ruined the character by pretty much turning her into a Mini Maggie but given how much time she spends with the woman, guess it rubs off.

    Despite that, I do like her character but she was honestly great during 2008 – 2009 where she was a total bad girl and yet you couldn’t help but to love it.

    I think in 2010 she was at the best state she could be, she began to reform but at the same time she maintained the tough girl that she had to become growing up.

    From 2011 then on, it went straight to hell, especially after it came out that Daniel was Maggie’s son and that was when they began to ruin Melanie, throw in Gabi that made it impossible to even enjoy Mel and Chad and then it’s over.

    Theresa is a bitch and Kristen is the queen bitch and if they had planned to put Melanie up against them she at least deserved for her bad girl side to return. I mean both women told her off, she barely got a word in edge wise. I would have loved to have seen Melanie grab Theresa’s arm like she did to Stephanie or throw Kristen down like she did Chelsea.

    And not even going to mention that she lost all her wit. Her jokes and her insults and the way she had with words pre-2011 and especially 2008-2009 were great and sadly with these two women she barely got a word in.

    I will never forget this quote. “Lets all bow down to princess Stephanie”

    What happened to that? She is better off gone, don’t need another mini Maggie trying to get everyone on the high road. (No offense to Molly Burnett, she has no control over the writing, she did the best she could with what she was given. Excellent actress when she has the right writing.)

    Aries replied

    I agree with you Gage. If you go to YouTube and watch her scenes over the years you would see that given the right material, she was a great actress and is a great actress. She just doesn’t do bland and boring very well and really, why would anyone want her to? She was in her element as bad girl then turned semi good. She could go about her business but then really dish it out if you mess with her or those she loves. Molly did what she could with the script she was given, probably why she only returned briefly, the role had to have become boring for her and you can clearly see she had much more fun with it during her early years.

    I’m sure the return was just to be nice and honestly, she was really used as a simple prop to “solve the mystery.” It wasn’t really necessary to bring her back for that. Abby could have easily caught on and put it together herself.

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I understand…ive been attacked because of my likes and dislikes…i have no problem if you like someone…i actually liked Melanie somewhat when she originally appeared but this turn is different…i blame the writers and director mostly…Melanie has become annoying and boring-imo-her secret when she returned and pairing with Brady was a total misfire…maybe if she returns in the future and with new writers my opinion of her might change…i hope my original reply didnt sound like i was attacking you because you like the actress-she seems like a really lovely person off screen-i just dont like how the writers had written her character…im not that kind of person who attacks someone with a different opinion and i expect the same in return…Peace!

    I have the feeling she was just brought back as a plot point to bring in Serena (that didn’t go over so well) and to bring in the stolen embryo story. Once she didn’t really seem to get much of a story on her own (the card counting was less than a blip on the radar) I assumed she was just going to have a temporary stay in Salem.

    Now I wonder how she’s going to leave — hopefully we’ll get some excitement stirred up with her exit.

    I wish Molly much luck and a more crucial role in her next project.

    andrew hass replied

    I also thought Melanie’s return was short term in a way because of how fast they put her and Brady together.However maybe Molly only agreed to come back for 6 months because she didn’t want to be tied down longer.However it wouldn’t surprise me if the show leaves the door open for Melanie to return again down the line.For example maybe Melanie leaves with a secret of sorts.

    Reply

    Gage replied

    See that is what I don’t get, that scheme with the card counting, you would think that by her doing that some of her “old habits” would have resurfaced and just in proper time to really take on Theresa and Kristen.

    Love Molly, great actress and I loved watching her put Stephanie and Chelsea in their places but the writers made Melanie pathetic against Theresa and Kristen.

    I do disagree that she was needed for the Serena plot. Serena knew Eric back in Africa, she didn’t need an excuse to come and see him and as far as the embryo plot, they honestly could have utilized Abby for the story instead of simply making her “psychotic sex princess” all the time.

    Can’t blame her, I’m pretty sure she found the role boring. Melanie was very fun in 2008-2009 and she was at her best in 2010 as being good but tough.

    Then Daniel’s paternity came out and they began to turn her into the next Maggie and 2011 was the character slide that sent her right down.

    2012? That was just a year to traumatize her for Molly’s exit, I feel safe guessing that she knew what direction the role was going and that it would have been boring and that is exactly what it became when she returned in 2014, bet she is glad she didn’t sign on for a long period.

    Melanie To Stephanie “I could tear you limb from limb” Then she grabs her arm and tells her like it is.

    That should have been saved for Kristen.

    Then the quarantine room plot, I loved that quote.

    “Thanks to me Nathan went in there a little boy and he came out a man.” Just a couple of her best lines and she had many pre-2011.

    I honestly don’t understand how she became so soft, she had to be tough growing up, she had a hard life, not to mention all that has been done to her on the show since she appeared. Either she became soft due to some kind of PTSD or Maggie preached at her way to much off screen. Probably both.

    I like Melanie and Molly but her return has not been successful. Her meddling in Theresa’s baby mystery has been the only positive part of her comeback because it’s been the only way the story has moved forward with Kristen off canvas. Her relationship with Brady has been so forced and not at all interesting, and I have barely felt her connection to the cast. Her Intro back to the canvas story was Days at its worst- no imagination, no depth, just basic plot. I had hoped for more with her return but instead we just get her being lectured by Daniel, groping Brady and catfightingwith Theresa. I’m glad there are only a few more weeks to endure this.

    Reply

    Briana replied

    Poorly cat fighting with Theresa if you remember how she fought Stephanie and Chelsea. They shouldn’t have wasted the actresses time. She was being used as the prop for KBT plot being solved, probably because she had a job at the hospital so it seemed convenient but really the same thing could have been done with Abby, she could of solved the plot.

    And her threatening to jump off the plane because that air bag thing trapped her, I actually feel bad. I feel like she was brought on as not just a prop but as a joke.

    It should end if they don’t do something better. Finally glad that the Eve/JJ/Paige story has finally took the big jump. They waste money by putting Rory and Cole on the show, even though Cole did serve as an important piece of the truth coming out.

    Eve is a waste of time now unless they put her with Eric once Serena runs off. I always thought Eve and Eric had great chemistry, I loved their scenes, only times I’ve enjoyed watching her.

    JJ and Paige…ugh I don’t know, they need to work it out and both go off to California, together or broken up, no reason not to go to their colleges.

    Stephano needs to take out Clyde and Chad/Ben need to see Abby for the trash she is, dump her, and go out for boys night and die driving drunk.

    Tony, Bo, and Patch are returning.

    Cole goes off to where ever Bev went. Then put Abby with Tad. The guy is more deserving of a relationship than anyone and he isn’t bad looking, he’s actually cute.

    Write Rory and Daphne off and send them to where ever Bev went, Obviously they stopped wasting money on her.

    Elsa can come and kill Adrienne and frame Justin so he can go to jail and she can escape the country and leave. Put Lucas with a proper woman.

    Break Chelsea and Max up, bring Max back because he and Melanie are awesome in scenes together, he was a better brother to her than Nicholas.

    Then you bring back Cassie and Rex. She would make a good girlfriend for Max and Rex would be awesome with Melanie who they should keep.

    Nicole and Lucas both accidentally go to a dating service and get matched up together, see how that works.

    And those are the stories if I were one of the writers.

    I agree, it seemed like, this isn’t real – and her babbling and attempts to be cutesy were just annoying at times. I didn’t sense any real connection between her and Brady.

    It was done likely because there is such a large majority of people who wanted to see them together but those people will feel cheated once again, just like we were cheated of Melanie and Chad having a chance.

    With EJ and Kristen dead, Sami gone and Kate booted out, would have been great if Melanie and Chad married. Then they can take Stephano’s picture down (again!) Chad and Melanie would look so great on that wall. (Would be perfection if it was old Chad) but it would be fun.

    Are they cleaning house so they can afford the other returns for the 50th?

    She was used as a prop for the KBT story. To simply solve the mystery and because a large number of fans wanted Brady/Melanie they decided to give them a look before Molly left.

    The mystery could have been discovered and solved by Abby…

    Or better yet? What if Maxine was the one to take Kristen down? Sure Anne is a candidate and she is closer to Theresa but Maxine would have so deserved it.

    Since Melanie has been back she has had one scene with Sonny! One! They were great friends when she was on all those years ago. Weird how they only had that one. Now Molly is leaving, then Freddie, who by the way is a great actor and will be greatly missed. Who knows what Days is up to. They have destroyed an amazing couple, Will and Sonny and now have not given Brady and Melanie a chance. I hope that Molly finds something that she can thrive in and we will see her and Freddie in something together, since they are great friends as well.

    I love Belle and Shawn but bringing them back would be like how they brought Marlena and John back, they would come as a solid couple, a packaged deal unless something happened.

    I would like to see Rex and Cassie brought back, their characters were not fully explored and they could be fit in anywhere.

    (And get over the UFO, it could have easily been dropped by a plane with the actual UFO being designed to protect them from the fall, it would be like one big publicity stunt.)

    Well, her character to me was initially annoying with all her stutterings and infantile behavior but as she got involved in Theresa’s problem I became slightly intrigued. I can’t say though that I will miss the character of Melanie very much. As far as the actor playing Sonny leaving goes, I think they may re-cast…although maybe the actor feels he’s gone as far as he could with the role.
    I just wonder….does anyone feel that soaps have had their days in the sun? Could it be that actors are jumping ship?

    Jim, I definitely agree with you with regards to Molly Burnett’s acting choices with Melanie’s return to Salem, the stuttering and the little girl hand gestures and, the mugging!!!… was just so banal. I hope that when Kristen discovers all of Melanie’s meddling, she kidnaps Melanie far away from Salem!

    Molly is an excellent actress, it all just depends on the material she is given. 2008-2010 were like her best years. She really threw out some good jokes and she had so much chemistry with Max, enjoyed those scenes.

    And she really nailed it with Stephanie. They gave her great lines to work with, but it takes a talented actress to play a goody good character like Maggie and still be pleasant and entertaining, which is what they have tried to do to Melanie and it ruined her.

    very diisappointed the writers did not let the romance between Brady and Melanie grow into something special. The chemistry between them was great to watch as it has been a long time seeing a couple who were happy without any drama. Now the writers have spolit a good sforyline. BRING MELANIE BACK AND LET BRADY HAVE SOME REAL HAPPINESS FOR A CHANGE. They could be the next super couple on the show .

    I agree, with Julie, I too was disappointed with the writers not letting Brady and Melanie’s romance grow. I liked their chemistry and was hoping that Brady had finally found his love. I agree the storyline has been spoiled for Brady – Do bring back Melanie and have her and Brady give Theresa what she deserves – watching Melanie and Brady make it together. If Sonny is going than Will needs to go to, he is a very bad actor. Molly is definitely a loss for DOOL. I don’t know about their writers ????

    Awwwww. I’m sad. I was happy to have her character back. She is fresh, fun, and tenacious. When she last left, I was sad to see her go because they had spent much time and energy allowing us to know her, where she came from, and who she could become. They need a mix of younger and more mature characters on the show especially characters that we can care about – YET – at times they do things we may not always agree with.

    Don’t blame her one bit. The role probably became boring as hell to play. They took an awesome character and slowly stripped her of her own personality and turned her into Mini Maggie.

    Of course, not to say she shouldn’t have changed from being like she was in 2008 and especially what Nick did to her, but she was perfectly balanced out by 2010, there was no need to strip anymore of the tough girl away but they did.

    I am really sad to see her go. I hope she makes a return in the future. Please don’t kill her off. Melanie is good for Brady and Theresa isn’t. Although, Theresa may change her entire life now that a baby is involved. I don’t want to see Melanie leave permanently. I want her to return. With what she did for Brady and Theresa, it is just beyond nice, it is just incredible. She could have been like Nicole and just lied about it, but she isn’t that way. That is so refreshing on a soap opera. Melanie chose not to keep it a secret and it truly showed how much she loves Brady. I didn’t like her at first, but she quickly grew on me and now I don’t want to see her go.

    I could see Melanie deciding to leave to give Brady and Theresa a chance to be a family with their baby.Mel didn’t grow up with her parents around and she may not want that for Brady’s baby.So maybe she tells Brady to give Theresa another chance and if it doesn’t work out between them then so be it but he owes it to his baby at least to find out.

Justin’s lawyer skills verses
    Aiden, not sure but need some type of new story line. Nicole ‘s great love her the most her character is more realistic than others. Theresa, JJ and Page scenes give us a break boring.

    I kind of agree. I think they saw so many people begging for Brady/Melanie that they just decided to do it. Would have made more sense for Chad and Mel to have been in a story together, aside from the baby plot.

    It’s hard to believe that Chad dumped Abby for Melanie, then took Abby back as a rebound and is obsessed with Abby. You’d think he would have become obsessed with Melanie, he chose who he liked better out of the two. I think Chad is just obsessed with being with someone period and I guess since he felt so “burned” by Melanie he has chosen Abby to be that person.

    It’s a shame that when we finally get a good storyline going for Brady we have to lose his fiancé. He deserves a break to get away from Teresa so please try to convince Molly to stay on. If it’s not herdoing the leaving then DOOL needs to ask Molly to stay on again. Molly makes the character of Melanie so much more than some of the other characters we have on Days.

I loved the relationship between her and Brady and I ‘m not sure if it is her decision or not to leave , but if it’s not her choice to leave then shame on DOOL.

    Very poor move scrubbing Melanie Jonas. Molly Burnett is a wonderful actor and an asset to Days of Our Lives. My mom and I have watched Days since the early 70s. With Melanie now gone we are considering not watching the show anymore.

    Theresa is a horrible person. Of course, if you dislike a character in a movie/television show then it seems that actor is doing a good job. But, frankly, she annoys me as does Will and Eve. Also, JJ is a cutie and I think Paige is dull. I am thrilled Eric will at last see the light when it comes to Serena. I am hoping he will reconcile with Nicole. I also think Daniel and Jennifer are good together as are Hope and Aiden.

    Do consider resigning Molly Burnett. With Brady’s financial resources I am hardpressed not to see how he can get Theresa to leave on a fast jet plane and he and Melanie raise Tate. Do your job. BRING BACK MELANIE!!!

    If DAYS brings back Melanie, they’ll have to recast because Molly chose a six month contract where she would then be able to exit. Molly planned on leaving after six months and she stuck with her plan. She chose to leave, but the show is leaving the door open for her return.

    When Melanie returned to DOOL, she brought a little spark with her and was a perfect match for Brady Black. Now that she has left the show again, she took that spark with her. I can see the show heading back to the slumps that it has been in since “Sammy” left the show.
    The return of Bo and Patch will do nothing to liven the show up. The character of Bo is overrated.
    One last thing, if DOOL put Paul and Sonny together, even for a short time, they will lose me and the 7,500 hundred viewers who are rooting for Sonny and Will. They need to change Will’s character back to the way that he used to be and let at least one couple on Days be HAPPY for longer than six months. Ijs!!!

    I think it’s ridiculous that Melanie is out. She and Brady are perfect together and she’s always getting into trouble somewhere. Makes for plenty of potential storylines. Is she being ousted to make room for returning favorites? If so, shame on DOOL for not keeping one of the best of the newer characters. Get rid of Aiden. He and Hope really do not work.

    I have been watching Days for 45 years!!! Long time watcher!!! Started watching with my precious grandma at an early pre-school age!!! I’ve been dedicated & devoted!!! I must say that I have cried with some of the very best actresses on there, for instance, Deidre Hall/ Marlena Evans, Brady, Black- Allison Sweeney/Samantha/Sammy- Kristian Alfonso/ Hope Williams, Brady- Peter Reckell/Bo Brady- Eric Martsolf/Brady Black- Shawn Christian/Daniel Jonas- Suzanne Rogers/Maggie- Melissa Reeves/Jennifer~ all the way back to Frances Reid/ Alice!!!
    The one actress that has touched me the most has been Molly Burnett/ Melanie, she is an awesome actress & such a moving performance, definitely professional at her art/craft of acting!!! I was ecstatic about her return, but never dreamed that they would let her depart!!! The on screen chemistry & love affair between (Melanie & Brady) has been incredible, both actors should receive an award for their performances & especially the last days for Melanie on Days! I am heart-broken that they are sending Melanie packing, that Molly Burnett won’t be a part of Days, it’s just not right!!!
    First Peter Reckell/Bo Brady, now this!!! I am beginning to wonder if the writers have forgotten how to do………….”Happily ever after” anymore!!!
    I do hope that Molly Burnett & Eric Martsolf are nominated & win an award for their beautifully, heart touching performances on Days of Our Lives, they absolutely deserve it!!! I do hope that you return Molly Burnett, it’s a pleasure watching you, if not on Days, maybe night time shows, I’ve seen you there too!!! I wish for you all of the very best~ Molly Burnett!!! You are such a beautiful person & an amazing actress!!! God Bless You!!! May He bless all of the cast/writers at Days of Our Lives!!! <3

    I agree Kathy. It seems so ludicrous to have her back for six months and let her go again. She and Eric are a great couple and DOOL is making a huge mistake if they don’t listen to the fans of Molly and the show and offer her another, long-time contract right now.

    After reading other comments about Molly Burnett, I realize my comments were not strong enough! Please offer her whatever it takes to bring her back! She should be your leading character, as her charisma and acting ability carry the show! Everyone pales in comparison and seem only to be there to support her character! She has the same kind of appeal for your soap that the big movie stars have to draw the audience in!

I can’t understand why letting her stay on the show would do anything to cause harm to the 50th anniversary shows. Melanie and Brady were just the next generation of Salem families. If you wanted to get rid of someone, why not Kate, Clyde or whimpy Will? Bad move DOOL!! BTW, when are you going to let Stephano and Victor figure out that Clyde killed EJ and stabbed Sonny? Move on already!

    I was very disappointed when the character of Melanie Jonas left the show again. Melanie and Brady worked well together. I was looking forward to their story line developing more over time. Her return a few months ago really upped the show in many ways. It was nice to see a strong woman fight for what was right and I was looking forward to seeing her put Teresa in her place. Sorry to see her go but wishing her all the very best!

    I think Days should bring back Mia if Melanie is leaving and give Chad the real woman he was meant to be with. Chad had to endure his baby with Mia dying and he never got over it. Melanie will be missed, I think when she appeared on children’s sitcoms before Days she wasn’t as sharp but DAYS made her brilliant. Mia is just as good looking as anyone else on the show right now.

    Who can blame Sonny for leaving! The recasting choice made for Will was a horrible mistake! No chemistry there, and Will comes off as an angry, spoiled brat! Once again, Days is bringing characters back from the dead. Wonder how the characters will be brought back this time! Another return I could do without is the return of Ava. Kinda like my opinion of Will, the gal just doesn’t have what it takes!
