Yep. That whole Labor Day fiasco was nothing more then a joke.
I remember there was a KA one too where Hope was going to be offed by Marlena and then John would shoot "Marlena" and we would later learn he killed Hattie and the real Marlena was locked up somewhere.
There were so many rumors at that time, just like now. That is why I can't wait until we get official word one way or the other because it drives me nuts :lol:
JER NEEDS to speak up. He has NO allegiances to Corday or NBC Daytime anymore. I wish the man would have the balls to go on the record with SOW or SOD and say, "Marlena was supposed to kill everyone in Salem. It was a voo doo thing. Remember Marlena's prophecy, 'Everyone in Salem will DIE?' Well, that WAS going to go somewhere -- if other forces hadn't intervened."
I'm just DYING to know how brilliant his original story would have been.
Yep. I, too, would like to know what was really behind that. That story had too many loose ends and I think JER was clearly going in a supernatural direction but was then forced to switch gears. I still remember Marlena going to Celeste and saying that. It had an apocalypse feel to it, including the promos which also had that scene and showed clips of many characters.
You described it perfectly. "Apocalypse." I mean, I thought Salem was going to die. Maybe JER was called to write that story to end the show by literally killing everybody in Salem. I had no idea what was going on.
AND THAT was the hook.
THAT'S why he shouldn't have been forced to switch gears.
Because THAT story could have saved the show in so many ways. For following through with THAT line alone.
