(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The devil gets his due … or does he?

In the September 14, 2010 issue of Soap Opera Digest, “All My Children” Co-Head Writers David Kreizman and Donna Swajeski report that Emmy-winner Vincent Irizarry is out as David Hayward, a role the actor has played off and on for the better part of the last 13 years.

Normally news of the exit of Pine Valley’s finest bad boy would upset the masses – but online fans are savvy to the way of their daytime dramas and many smell something fishy. “AMC” and sister-soap “One Life to Live” (Florencia Lozano’s character Tea recently died at the hands of an evil menace) are now both running stories – and releasing actor exit announcements – that have some online fans questioning if these lethal exits are just well orchestrated rating ploys. These fans suspect both David and Tea will both return from the dead in due time and that their revivals will have been in the cards all along.

We’ll keep you updated. Either way, Dr. Hayward kicks the bucket in style this Friday on “AMC.” Friday won’t be the last we’ll see of David’s brand of bad, though - he’ll pop up as a ghost next week. Irizarry, meanwhile, is keeping busy. The talented actor recently landed a guest-role on an episode of CBS’s “NCIS: Los Angeles.” The episode will air this fall.

Update (Sept. 4): Today on his Official Fan Page on Facebook, Rachel Anderson – who appears to run the page – reported that Irizarry is in the middle of contract negotiations and his current story was created in part to deal with the results of those negotiations. Anderson passed on this note from the actor himself, “if I do return to AMC, it will be in greater part because of this wonderful outpouring from all of you who love the show and David as much as I do.” While this adds to the drama (by chance … or on purpose), and confirms fan speculation that David’s demise was created as a less than permanent ratings ploy – it also puts fans more on edge than ever about the ultimate fate of Hayward and Irizarry in Pine Valley.

In other casting news, Susan Lucci, who plays the one and only Erica Kane, returns with Walt Willey, who plays Jackson Montgomery (one of Erica’s many men), to tape at “AMC” next week. Lucci has been on an extended summer vacation since June which has allotted alter-ego Erica and her main man Jackson a nearly 3-month long pre-wedding honeymoon sail around the world. Erica and Jack return to Pine Valley on Wednesday, October 6. Upon their returns, look for Erica to continue to be entangled with Caleb (Michael Nouri); while Jackson gets pulled into Mrs. Hayward’s (Rebecca Budig) major legal woes.

“All My Children” airs Weekdays on ABC. “AMC” also airs 24/7 online at ABC.com.
