    According to SOD, her contract was up and she opted not to re-sign.

    I will miss her. Well its pilot season so maybe she can pick up a new tv show, land on a ABC Family show, OR play Eve’s daughter on Days….shit or she can be the new Summer on Y&R 🙂

    I hope they recast the role. She’s Ava’s daughter, and has relationships with Silas, Morgan and Michael Quartermaine

    I love the idea of her being Eve’s daughter on Days! (:

    While the connection to Days’ Eve would be cute, I don’t think Daytime is the right place for KA anymore.  I certainly understood her appeal on OLTL, but in both roles on GH her work ranged from mediocre to laughable.  I think she is perfectly capable of having a long and successful career, but I feel like her style would be better suited elsewhere, at least for now.

    Bingo.  

    I don’t know if it’s fair to say I won’t miss Kiki at all.  I mean, I won’t, but maybe I would like the character better with a different actress.  The connections to Ava, Silas and Morgan don’t do anything for me because I wouldn’t miss any of them if they were gone either.   I wish her well, but I really hope she doesn’t show up on DAYS.

    Southern Eve isn’t working. Kristen as Paige wouldn’t work either.

    syrus80, I’m curious about what’s not working for you regarding Southern Eve.  I have mixed feelings.  I love how well Kassie Depaiva has distinguished Eve from Blair as well as the delivery of her one liners.  The latter makes my day on a consistent basis.  I don’t really have a problem with Eve sleeping with JJ either.  My issues with it are: (1) the story is moving slowly and dialogues are getting repetitive, (2) KD is gorgeous but looks way too old for this character, (3) Eve really hasn’t won many battles since coming to town which is odd considering how bad ass she’s supposed to be, and (4) she’s relatively isolated now in that she’s only meaningfully interacting with her own family (she has no friends, non-JJ romantic prospects, etc).

    I agree that the dialogue is starting to get a little repetitive, but if the cover of SOD is to be believed, at least some of the dynamics are about to change.  And it would be nice for Eve to develop a new connection or two outside of JJ, Theresa and Jennifer.  Maybe they’ll throw her into Rafe’s orbit, or at least into helping out with the night club Rafe is suddenly in charge of.  It does seem like Eve is often on the losing end of arguments and confrontations, but since she’s been in Salem she’s been campaigning for three things, two of which she’s gotten with JJ and Paige breaking up and having gotten a good chunk of the money from Jack’s book.  The third thing is the surgery she was so desperate for, which didn’t happen.

    As far as KA playing Paige, I can’t imagine that working.

    EmmyLoser, that’s a good point (of course and as always) about Eve’s 2 out of 3.  I think I didn’t really realize that because Eve consistently looks rattled and stressed out, and that is further magnified when Melissa Reeves periodically plays up Jennifer’s bravado.  It almost feels backwards, i.e. we should see relatively more bravado out of Eve and cowering out of Jennifer.

    That’s very true, it does seem like a backwards dynamic a lot of the time now with those two.  I’m glad Jennifer’s found more of a backbone over the last few years and fighting with the likes of Chloe and Nicole has toughened her up.  But now it seems like Eve is scared out of her mind that Jennifer will find out about her and JJ and do something to get payback or something, which does feel off.  Eve and JJ both seem to be unraveling to some degree, both really shaken by what they allowed to happen between them, twice.

    Yes it absolutely is nice that Jennifer has toughened up over time, and the problem really just is how Eve is coming across right now.

    Loved her on OLTL, didn’t care for her at all on GH.

    If ATWT or GL were still around I’d reccomend she find work over there, but as of right now her best bet is to find work on a cable show like on ABC Family or TeenNick.  She would fit in well on a show like Degrassi or The Fosters.

    It’ll be interesting to see what she does next.  She’s said that she wants to consider other options outside of soaps and possibly outside of acting, since she’s been doing this since she was six years old.  I agree, though, I could see her fitting in at ABC Family.
