    He didn't like where the show was going...too much like a soap I think his words were. They really should recast Alex, now that he and Stevie FINALLY got it together he's leaving? That's just so wrong! It wouldn't be the same without Aaron, but it's worth a shot...

    Aaron is coming back for guest visits in the end of S7 and in the beginning of S8. So we will see him on screen.

    Recasting characters can be a death sentence to televisions shows. They can do it on Daily soaps in some cases but if someone has played the role for so long a recast just won't work.

    I personally cannot see someone else playing Alex or Riley. Aaron and Dustin own those roles so to speak.

    So I just have to get this off my chest, just know that I actually like Dustin Clare and that this is coming from a place of frustration over S8.

    Why the HELL did he have to be in such a hurry to leave the show!? And what has he done since? HUH! NADA! What a waste...

    Okay, thanks, really needed to get that out.
