We will have to disagree about 1986. I see similarities but moving on...
No problem.

The writers seem to be driving that point home and I do think having Marlena leave twice (the real reason, and I know Dee or the show never mentioned this, was they knew they had to use Dee alot later and wanted to make sure she didn't go over guarantee)
I'm curious, since you've posted that so many times (and it's not correct) - do you think Deidre was lying when she told SOD that the time off was for no reason? I mean, she's worked in the business over 30 years, and she knows how guarantees work. Why would she have said that to SOD? She's certainly had time off before because of her guarantee - I'm not denying that. But she's never said previously that any of the time off because of her guarantee was for no reason. (Oh, and I'm referring to Marlena's second trip to Colorado. Marlena's first trip was because Deidre took a week off in March for her kids' school vacation.)

was to show her difficulty in dealing with John and accepting him. She was confused and it was easier to run. It's like John said after the second time...Eric's injuries were minor. She used it as an excuse to stay away for a bit.
Actually, I think it was the writers who used that as an excuse - to bring Ava on.

I think they can still make this all work and click together. Remember, Draughon was promoted recently and things have improved slightly so who knows. it was too late with Kayla/Steve/Ava but it's not too late here. We'll see. I hope we get some stuff like this but I'm also one who could care less if J&M get back together so go figure LOL.
Disagreements aside, lol, thanks for explaining it, and I do understand your point now. I'm very doubtful though. But since I do care if J&M get back together - I certainly hope you're right!
