    Serial Scoop confirmed today that Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas) will be leaving DAYS in the near future. 

    Daytime Confidential hinted back in early summer that Christian may exit the soap later in the year, leading to wild speculation that Daniel would end up killed.  That speculation was warranted as Serial Scoop confirms Daniel will not be leaving Salem alive.

    No word yet on a final airdate….Christian is 6th actor to exit the show since DAYS fired their previous headwriters & executive producer (Gary Tomlin/Christopher Whitesell/Lisa DeCazote).  Freddie Smith (Sonny), Paul Telfer (Xander), Melissa Archer (Serena), Daniel Cosgrove (Aiden) and True O’Brien (Paige) have all been confirmed out.

    The exits will not stop with Christian…although still unconfirmed, reports indicate Robert Scott Wilson (Ben), James Read (Clyde) and Guy Wilson (Will) are also out, among others not yet spoiled…but we will have to wait and see on all of those.

    Thanks for the scoop, Scoopster!  I wish Shawn Christian all the best, but I doubt I’ll be shedding any tears for Daniel.  I think both the show and the character of the Nicole will be much better off with Daniel gone.

    This is actually great news (however, I do like that it gives more screen time for Suzanne Rogers to have SC on the show; when the children go, there is less screen time for the veteran parents). Ben and Clyde excite me too, I hope those are correct (esp. Clyde). And I do hope that in time they recast Sonny and Will (my guess is that Christopher Sean will be out soon too – he has been getting cast in roles on primetime lately).

    Daniel’s bullying and judgmentality were real turn-offs, and he lacked chemistry with many of his co-stars imo.

    So now we know how they dug up the money for all these big returns!!! (;

    I’m glad this is happening, and it’s long overdue.  He will be succeeded well by some of the new hires.

    Although I like Shawn Christian, the character of Daniel has proven particularly problematic. It’s interesting that they did not reunite him with Jennifer given that she has been without a romantic interest for so long. I think his character could have been salvaged, and I certainly do not see any reason to kill him off. But I agree with EmmyLoser that this bodes well for the character of Nicole.

    This period of Days of Our Lives could be retitled Fire Sale.

     

    (Or should it be retitled Attrition?)

    Well if he dies, then there goes the Danloe ending, not that I wanted that.

    So this is casting news that I know was on a great many of our DAYS wishlists, and imho, couldn’t have come soon enough. Hopefully, this will not mean less screentime for Maggie and the always delightful Suzanne Rogers. If the speculation about Daniel’s impending death is indeed true, then I also hope this will spur on another surprise visit from Melanie, whose scenes with grandma Maggie I always enjoyed so much (Molly Burnett and Rogers share this amazing natural chemistry that the show has had difficulty replicating through other characters since Burnett’s departure).

    I do wish Shawn Christian all the best. Perhaps he’ll land a role playing another doctor on NBC’s Night Shift, lol.
