Would love to see Tuc Watkins play Peter. 

Please, no. I don't care about the Dimeras, but Watkins' performance style is too self-aware, too smirking, too close to parody.

I'm honestly surprised Ron hasn't thought up a role for him...

To be honest ,i think they do have a place on the canvas but they should be cut down to size abit. 

I wouldn't mind if  there were like two DiMeras in Salem . 

Its about time Peter Blake -DiMera returns . Would love to see Tuc Watkins play Peter. 

With Chad ,Andre and the others gone ,I would be okay if Peter stayed at the DiMera mansion as the sole DiMera in Salem . 

The show should introduce new bad guys like Orpheus's offsprings or even Annie Peters ,daughter of Julie's enemy ,Susan Martin .

Yeah ,they tried that with Clyde but I think they  wasted James Read in that  role and i think he should have been cast as Bill Horton. 

Even though i think Jessica Collins would totally rule as a recast of Eve Donovan ,she wouldnt be a bad casting choice when it comes to casting an actress to play Annie Peters. 

For me its that they are so far gone from who they used to be course that could be said about other families on this show but the Bradys and Hortons weren't supposed to be bad and scary its easier to take how they are now compared to their original glory. I'm supposed to think the Dimeras are scary and they haven't been since the 80s. The mid 90s is when they started to become like everyone else in Salem. That's the problem more than the size of the family.

I would've gone for Gina T as an Eve recast if Charlotte Ross was really never coming back(and she won't).

I think Gina T would make a good Theresa recast. I can’t stand JL. 

I'm surprised Ron never went there either considering he could get an OLTL reunion with KDP/GT but they play sisters instead of cousins.

Her and Brady would look really pretty together.

remember when Nicole was accused of killing Deimos , Rafe said Nicole is not capable of commiting murder .

I have no idea how much of a difference there really is in age, but GT comes off much older than JL imo. Although, that hardly matters lol.

That actually preferable. JL’s Theresa was always way too young for Brady. She and Melanie both.

Its weird this show existed for decades without the Dimeras and in the early 90s not a Dimera in sight. They did just fine course they had characters who weren't just wacky villains either. I didn't mind them when they were on the outside looking in and legit scary then they became like everyone else and their mystique disappeared. The Dimeras should've died with Stefano.

On the bitterness thread ,i did point out that Orpheus's kids could have appeared . Instead of Bren Foster playing Vivian's contrieved son,Quinn Hudson ,,he could have easily been Orpheus's son... Brenn does look like he could be george del hooyo's son. Plus Bren iis roughly the same age as allison sweeny.

Heck ,sarah brown could have been cast as orpheus daughter but nooo,she had to play an unremarkable character like Madison James .

Also The writers who introduced the Dimeras also wrote a backstory for the DiMeras which the subsequent writers hardly ever mentioned again .for instance when Stefano first showed in salem in 1982, Stefano and Tony mentioned there were  3 unnamed DiMera sons of Stefano's in the early '80s, and Stefano also once told Renee of a daughter named Vanessa whom he hadn't seen in years; none of these children of Stefano's were ever seen on-screen or mentioned again however.

Okay ,Peter Blake being one of those 3 sons is plausible . But who are the other 2 sons? 

It sure as hell not Benjy because Stefano and Tony made it sound like those 3 sons grew up in the same household  and were raised by Stefano .Benjy was never raised by Stefano .

Now Andre could not be one of those sons because it was stated clearly that he was Stefano's nephew . yes,Dena Higley rewrote that and made Andre to be stefano's son.

PErhaps Andre and Antony "Tony" should have been twin brothers from the beginning with Renee being a standalone character and not being a DiMera. Andre being Tony's actual twin would have gone a long way in filling gaps in Stefamo'a familial backstory .

with James Scott being Tony and Anna's son and casey deiderick/Billy Flynn playing Elvis John "EJ " Wells, son of susan and stefano.

Stefan could have  been one of the 3 other sons Tony and Stefano mentioned during the 1980s . 

But nope Carlivati ,who clearly has zero knowledge of the show's history chose to introduce Stefan with that garbage origin story of Stefan being Vivian and Stefano's secret son  which both vivian and stefamo failed to mention during the 1990s.

Stefano and Kate were lame  . 

I think Stefano ,instead of blackmailing Kate to marry him should have rather courted Julie .

Dont forget that when stefano firsst showed up in salem ,Tony held a party where he invited the citiZens of salem . when viewing footage of the party ,3 women caught Stefano's eye ; Marlena,Julie and Kayla .

Stefano thought that Marlena or Kayla would be suitable wives for Tony while Stefano gets Julie to himself . 

The show could have rekindled Stefano's fascination with Julie and have him courting her . Hahahahahahahahaha

This is the drawback of SC writing when one half of the couple leaves the other one is left to flounder. I mean look at Hope now. 

Kayla is no different they just don't go out of their way to pair her with other men like they have with Hope and Jennifer through the years. The last guy she got involved with on screen was Shane and the show seems to want to ignore that pairing ever existed. They could have Kayla get her cougar on and get with a nice young lad.

No ,i think it is refreshing that Kayla kept her legs closed during Steve's missing years .

I dont think it is necessary or compulsory for women to bedhop for the sake of having a man.

It's not bedhopping to have a relationship with someone else.  Since soaps are about romantic relationships, maybe we'd see her more and MBE deserves to be seen more.

I'm not against Kayla having another relationship, per se. But there is absolutely no one on canvas I'd like for her. And, honestly, for right or wrong, it seems MBE/Kayla got the brunt of the blame when the horror that was Shane/Kayla went kaplooey, so...

I'm not counting on the show trying again, even if it has been forever now since that debacle.

And to be fair, the love stories they've written for Jennifer and Hope outside of Jack and Bo have largely sucked.  And I disagree with CanaryFan in that I don't believe it's because of super couple writing.  While the super couple will probably always be the favorite pairing for the individuals involved in the super couple, different relationships used to be something the show could pull off. 

But yeah, there is no good current possibility for Kayla right now--although I was wondering if she should start something with Dr. Shah.

Spoiler

Maybe they go on a first date the same night her husband reappears and she dumps him because I suddenly have a fetish for seeing him left after how seriously he took two first dates with Jennifer.

I always find it interesting that fans are more accepting of the men in these pairings moving on to other women but the women can't move on. I mean Bo was accepted with Carly and Billie just fine but Hope can't escape Bo, Jennifer can't escape Jack(although the show wishes she would with the amount of times they have fired MA through the years), Kayla can't get past Steve.

I mean yes they're the OTPs but sometimes there is no HEA and the show should be prepared to have them move on to others.

Marlena and Sami are the only females on this show that managed to have multiple successful pairings and aren't resented as much for moving on as Hope/Jennifer have through the years.

I do agree the writing for them sucked but Hope/Aiden had potential and that was tossed aside for Rafe. I didn't mind Peter/Jennifer but for obvious reasons that's never going to be revisited.

Especially for the many years Steve was gone before they returned in 2006. I mean I find it hard to believe Kayla never got remarried or had another kid. It would make more sense for her to have a kid and Steve try to accept him/her than the whole Tripp nonsense when Steve had amnesia.

Eli and Lani are the only couple I like right now. 

I hate Ciara and Ben.  Bens history is very difficult for me to get over.  And Ciara is so unlikeable.  I find Ben more like-able than her.  Maybe it’s her preachy ways.  

Eric/Sarah too messy and it’s not going to end well 

Gabby/Stephen are ok but they are toxic 

Nicole/Kristin/Brady just gross

will and Sonny have been hit and miss with me.  I do appreciate their humor.

I don't dislike Sarah and if Nicole reverts to the weepy version of herself I'm sure I'll like Sarah more than her but I can't imagine this version of Eric fun. Its not that GV isn't capable its that the show sees Eric as this vat of misery and not much else.

Eli/Lani seem rather popular I think not wanting them together would be unpopular. I think Eli could stand on his own with a bit more development and a more energetic love interest. Lani? OTOH I can't stand and wish she was written out of the show however if she's going to stick around pair her with Eli so she doesn't end up with someone I like.

I agree I find them bland but I think most things about the show are bland and boring at this point.

I think its rather unpopular most people seem to love BB's version of Stefan and forget TC was in the role or at least see TC's version as a dumpster fire. Course it helps BB's version doesn't have that DID storyline to deal with and has been paired with Gabi which people seem to have taken to.

I think people thought the DID story was a dumpster fire and it was associated with TC but Gabi and Stefan's popularity was starting while TC was in the role. I think this story would have been a winner with either actor in the role.

I think TC did a better job with the "I hate you but I want you" vibe.   And BB first came on with more of a "I hate you" vibe.  TC was more animalistic and I missed that when he left.  But BB is who I'd rather see shirtless.

I don't because BB did the sex scenes etc better with CB to really sell it. I don't see TC pulling that off.

I found Stefan to be a dumpster fire of a character because that's what his entire purpose was to take advantage of a woman who was mentally ill and they didn't bother developing him beyond that. With BB's version and Chabby leaving they finally developed the character when this is what we should've had from jump (and him having a story of his own to begin with). They should've had Stefan/Gabi and Chad/Abby in separate storylines then they could've fought over Dimera Enterprises rather than this stupid DID storyline which was not only gross but a complete waste of time.

Barash should have been cast as Max Brady .And Stefan should have been exposed as a fraud and killed off when TC left the show. Or they simply should have cast TC as Nicholas Alamain.

Nicole should have been killed off . 

The character has run out of steam.

She should have died saving Brady and Eric during that whole warehouse saga and burned to death .

Yeah ,that sounds morbid but i think showing her charred corpse would have made it clear that she is dead.

Her death should have sparked a custody battle for Holly .

Brady /Chloe vs Maggie/Melanie  vs Xander vs Brandon /Taylor 

Team Brady /Chloe is represented by Belle 

Xander is represented by Charles Woods,Chad's former dad . 

Maggie /Melanie represented by Frankie Brady 

Brandon /Taylor are represented by Chris Kositchek 

This could have been an epic custody battle.

Even though I enjoyed Nicole through the years I agree she would've been better off dead at this point.

That being said a charred corpse doesn't mean much Jack donated his organs and he's still ticking.

However yes this could've spawned a great story rooted in years of history but that's too character driven for this show.

A charred corpse is the easiest of deaths, except for ones where the body was never found, to retcon! "Gosh, if the body hadn't been burned, we would have known it wasn't really Nicole..."

But CanaryFan's right too - at this point DAYS has proven that it doesn't matter how a character is killed off, they will still resurrect the character if they want. Ron certainly is no stranger to it - I believe it was during his stint on OLTL that Gigi was killed off quite definitively, only to be brought back alive when it was retconned so that Gigi's sister Stacy, who'd been offscreen for some time, had gotten plastic surgery to make herself look identical to Gigi, and she was the one who died...

It's nice to see him without it though. Eric looked great when he came back as a priest, but now that he's aging the scruff helps I think...

Strangely, I think the best he ever looked was when he came back after being in prison. The extreme haircut really gave him an edge.

Kristin waving her gun and not shooting anyone has been like a running joke.  I was trying to work up a theory in my head about how this story was actually about how Kristin has come to a place of total powerlessness, hence the numerous scenes of her grabbing a gun, threatening death, yet doing nothing, but most of the story seems driven by plot and an opportunity for Arianne Zucker to be snarky, so I gave up on the theory.

Most ladies say he is a good looking man. I just find it odd that a guy who is considered to be attractive has zero chemistry with the ladies he is paired with.
