Of course, many of his fans have commented on the matter with, “He needs to go back to Days ASAP. EIther as Dario or another character, maybe one of Justins other sons? There is so many people to pair with him on Days and lots of potential. He could be both villian and hero. He shouldnt have been taken off Days in the first place,” along with, “I never cared for the character. But I’m surprised that they are getting rid of him right when they are starting to pair him with Chelsea. Sharon will get back with Nick but what about Chelsea? Maybe Missy might be on her way out too. I hope that’s not the case.”
Another fan wrote, “I guess they are setting up a Shick reunion. Honestly, they belong together anyhow. I just wish this hot man didn’t have to be a casualty in all of it. He needs a storyline.”
