    James Lastovic (Joey) to depart.

    [​IMG]

    As has been rumored since late March, James Lastovic (Joey) will be departing "Days of Our Lives" this summer. Rumors began swirling on March 22 (the same day Lastovic was nominated for a Daytime Emmy, and the time frame for when his original two-year contract ended), when a tweet from a relative of Lastovic's mentioned he had not been renewed. In an Emmy interview with Soap Central, Lastovic mentioned that on the day of the Emmy nominations (March 22), he "had just finished doing some pretty emotional scenes, so I went to my dressing room and collected myself a little bit." Look for Lastovic to last air in August.

    I hope he doesn't go looking for Jade. I hope the young man finds work elsewhere. Now Kayla and Steve will be empty nesters.

    I am wondering if perhaps he doesn't tell Tripp that he is the one who ended Ava's life.

    Yes, had been hearing he was leaving......rumors, tho.

    So Jade leaves today, 7/14, Joey in August, Xander in Sept. and Nicole in October.

    I wonder if there will be a recast, as there evidently has been for Ciara??? We will see.....Who knows what the future holds?

    Not surprised, but hoping he doesn't reveal the truth about Ava and go to prison.

    I hope Ava is still alive and she comes back just to correct the mistake the writers made by making Joey a killer

    Ava was dying already, I would really like if it could be shown she died by her own hand as a result of attempting to inject herself with that drug. She did inject herself, was collapsed when Kayla found her. And if Kayla wanted her dead she could have just left there to die. She didn't. Tripp is an idiot. Sure, she then gets her to the hospital, where everyone is saving her life, but kills her there where it could easily be discovered. Stupid.

    Will be waiting to here HOW he exits. But we never did hear how Jade was going to go, so......

    Or maybe we can see a changed version of events that Ava survived after Joey's suffocation attempt. Then seconds after he left the room, Cousin Angelo tip-toed in somehow and actually did the deed.

    JS, this is a good solution to the Ava question. Having an arch-villain like Ava being done in by a mere teenager just doesn't make sense. In contrast, a thug like Cousin Angelo doing the dirty deed makes perfect sense. With old man Vitali dead, and the apparently-childless, unloved Ava out of the way, he'd presumably be in line to get the family fortune. As for James Lastovic (Joey), good luck to him. He did a fine job playing a character for whom issues just never went away.

    Thanks Jason. Lessening the young crew sounds good to me but I liked Steve and Kayla's son.

    I was wondering if Joey was about to change his opinion of his future, and join Jade, wherever it is she was joining her Mom? If Joey does hang around, I hope they get him a haircut.

    I like this young man and I like Joey. I hope they find he didn't do the deed and heads off to college so they can bring him back. And I hope if they do bring him back down the line, the part will be played by the same young man.

    I will accept either of these scenarios as a way to retcon Joey being the killer. If Ava returns, it needs to be for a 1 scene cameo and then we never see her again.
