    Am perplexed. Current stories. WHY? For What purpose?

    Tripp is found to be a formerly thought to be dead, son of Steve. And while his alive father is in front of him, having searched for him, found him brought him to Salem to meet other family, etc., Tripp instead relies on a couple of old DVDs wherein Ava professes her love for her unborn child, so Tripp disowns the Johnsons, refusing to believe even newspaper articles.

    Chloe is allowed to renege on her promise to carry a baby for Nicole, and turn it over.

    Nicole has to run off with Holly, but be subjected to overtures from a porn obsessed pervert who wants sex with the 15 yr. old Misty Circle. (Clue, she is not 15 anymore, nor drugged, nor that person)

    Did Josh start these? Or are these all Dena's creations?

    Most of the Tripp story doesn't make any sense at all. Actually, most of these stories I agree don't make a tremendous amount of sense.

    WHY is Sonny acting like a mini-mobster because he ran a coffee shop for a few years?

    WHY is Hope getting a pass on murder but Eduardo isn't getting a pass for possessing stolen property?

    WHY are we pretending Chad and Gabi had a great love that paralleled the relationship between Abby and Chad?

    WHY are Shawn and Belle not in Salem?

    WHY are Ciara and Claire being written as cheap rivals for Theo when there are so many more original and interesting stories that could have been written for them?

    These are all Dena Higley's stories, which will go on until June. Josh Griffith's stuff ended last Aug/Sept. From what I understand, Ron Carlivatti's (new head writers) stories do not begin until July.

    I just don't understand the purpose or reasoning behind the messes that are being presented.

    I have read that Dena H. loves the character of Ava, Is this how she can bring the character back without raising her from the dead? I know already filmed episodes are sometimes "re-edited" in order to have story direction changed, but it is just too bad that entire storylines cannot be removed. (Looking directly at you, Scooter)

    Why is Nicole going to potentially risk everything just to get rid of a pervert? It's one thing to take your own biological child on the run (despite the court order), it's another entirely to lead us to believe that she'll shoot the pervert if she gets a gun.

    Why do they have to stay there....for 2 weeks yet?? They could pack up, load up the car, and be gone in middle of night. Brady has money, he can have whatever he is waiting for wired to him elsewhere.

    Because as the silly wags say, there would be no "soapy drama" if they acted with even the slightest amount of sense.

    Why is Kate crying and saying how much she loved Eduardo? They were only together a few times and I didn't think it was a GREAT love story. Same with Gabi and Chad.......I never remember a great love story there either.

    can barely watch anymore. It's no wonder Ari Zucker (Nicole) is leaving the show.

    Days doesn't even come close to paralleling "real" life. I guess that's why I like watching. I get excuses to make snarky comments and amuse myself, lol.

    What's needed is Days to take a dip in the ratings and huge complaints about the storylines and writers. That's what needed.

    Oh, they already have that. Which is why the present head writer was fired, and a new one hired. Trouble is..with filming so far ahead, we won't see new writer's stuff til mid-summer.

    I FF through a lot of things these days, sometimes not even watching on an NBC platform.

    WHY is Kate involved in at least 4 storylines right now but we hardly ever see Marlena for more than 10 min a week?

    WHY are Hope/Rafe, Gabi/Chad and Kate/Eddie treated like they each have some type of epic love story?

    WHY is Ava or anything to do with Ava even being mentioned on this show? Ava is the new Daniel.

    WHY is a recast Stephanie not in Salem?

    WHY do day players in Nicole's storyline get more air time than Marlena?

    WHY is Nicole treated as a martyr when she stole what legally isn't hers at the moment? I'm ready for this character and this actress to have a long rest.

    WHY do we only see Eric Brady once a week? At let us see him counseling his niece and/or cousin.

    WHY are Shawn and Belle not in Salem smack in the middle of this triangle to create added drama for all involved?

    That's just one of the many ways this could have been better.

    For a show about "family", one almost needs to use :sarcasm: emoji for the just why should/why would Shawn or Belle have anything to do with the Ciara/Claire/Theo triangle
