    Does anybody else think that Chad lied to Cameron about his brain tumor? I just think with him leaving in October, I don't think he will die, I wonder if he lied to get the sympathy from Cameron. Cameron then will do exactly what Chad wanted and push Abby away for Chad? We never actually heard the doctor tell Chad he had a brain tumor, so I think he lied to get Abby from Cameron...just my thoughts. What are yours?

    As far as I know, Chad has NOT been recast.

    I don't think anyone mentioned the character being recast. right now, am not sure whether Chad is dying or not. I do feel he is using the situation to get Cameron to back away from Abby.
    This would leave him as the only guy spending time with Abby.

    I agree. I think he is playing the sympathy card big time and he's getting his advice from Stefano.

    Why else would he choose to choose his own specialist? BUT, and that's a "BIG" BUT; what will Abigail do if/when she finds out IF he was lying? It will just throw her back to Cameron who will be ready to pick up the pieces.

    If he did lie, he's an Eeeejay in the making

    I doubt he's lying. I don't think Cameron dumping Abby has anything to do with Chad's illness, but we'll have to wait and see.

    It would be interesting if Chad made his departure by duping both EJ and Stefano and absconding with their millions!

    I really don't think he's lying about it, because of the things he's been saying to everyone who doesn't know. When Sonny mentioned opening another business across town, he was quick to say "one day at a time" or something to that effect, and he's been very skittish. Do I think he's using it to get Cameron away from Abigail? Yes. He's making him feel guilty, big time.

    And while nobody mentioned before whether or not he's being or has been recast, Casey Deidrick (Chad) said in that Fairman interview that his "exit storyline" was "hard to film" but "fulfilling as an actor". Whether it's because of the brain tumor, who knows. Personally, I hope they don't kill Chad (even though dying means little in salem, especially if your last name is DiMera). I would like to see him return when the writers are capable of writing for someone besides EJ/Sami/Dan/Jen.

    edited to add actor's last name....JS

    He's lying, not sure how they will write his exit, as I do not believe they will recast. Maybe with his tail between his legs... After his resent interview, i get the feeling there is a farwell of some sort but sure why.

    They might just never confirm or deny to the viewers whether or not he has a tumor, and have him move away for some reason, leaving it so nobody in Salem knows about his condition.

    And, I think, that the show is attempting to have Cameron, thinking Chad is terminal, backing off from Abby in order for Chad's last days to be good ones for him. ?????

    Casey Deidrick (Chad) already taped his final scenes. If they did recast the role, that person would be on the set already, taping his scenes. If they only start taping new scenes (with a new Chad) after Halloween, we wouldn't see them until around March of next year.

    They could have Chad leave, wait a few months, then have his replacement return to Salem after having been cured somewhere else. In that case, they would not have to have someone waiting in the wings to just step in when Casey Dedrick (Chad) leaves.

    I agree that I believe Chad is being less than truthful about his prognosis. To use it to manipulate Cameron into backing off of his relationship with Abigail is so DiMera-like. Abigail will be less than pleased if this is the case....and she finds out. :confused: Who knows if she will though?

    Ok......Chad decides the doctors in Salem can't help him so he goes to another town or state for treatment. When he comes back (as new cast member), he will be fine. You see....the doctors in Salem can replace a heart and leave no scar, remove limbs and eyes that grow back, etc., etc., etc.,....but they can't remove the supposed brain tumor.:sarcasm:

    This is still on the topic of Chad, but not his illness. I want Kate to tell him what Stefano's intention was with sending Bernardi into Rafe's room. I don't want to see him getting close to Stefano again, thinking that he didn't lie to him, and he's innocent...
