After all... tomorrow is another day!
ICAM with you on the oddness of Stefano just hanging out with people he tortured.
But I don't blame an actor for considering someone who doesn't get his character, someone who has been a part of Days of our Lives off and on for 20-plus years, a bad writer. It's almost impossible to be a good writer if you don't have a good grasp of the characters you are writing.
Now you are so right that the dialogue was great and there were scenes with Stefano at times that interested me (I think I enjoyed his fake funeral and that DiMera meeting with EJ and Andre fighting) but Stefano at times was too weak and too obsessed with Sami and EJ rather than ALL of the people of Salem he had beef with, especially when it came to John and Marlena who had so much reason to be a part of the return of Stefano and going toe-to-toe with him last summer what with John having been shot and robbed of a kidney as part of DiMera schemes prior to his waking up from a coma but for whatever reason the show just wasted that potential and didn't bother tying John and Marlena into the Santeen shit until way too late and so Stefano's return was just very disjointed and not all it could be.
There was also the issue I think of Hogan falling in love with Andre so much that he played the heavy villain psycho to the point Stefano just really had nothing to do but lay in a hospital bed or pout in a wheelchair as Andre got to have all the fun.
