I just donīt understand how anyone can call it storyline, because IMO itīs just big entrance for Stefano. I love it too but I think even now itīs sometimes dangerously close to Reillyīs non moving episodes. Itīs great mainly because the character interaction are still fresh and people are happy just because their favorites are suddenly dominating, but the story is non existant. Marlena lies paralyzed while all people come in to tell her how great she is? Stefano repeats for n-th times to anybody who listens he wants and will have his revenge? John immitates Jack Bauer? Everybody believes everybody is someone else because the intoxicating gas? Itīs funny for a while but it cannot go forever.

But whatīs on screen now is not a story. Itīs an event. Itīs exactly the same stuff like the plane crash. Isolated event with no real impact. Itīs the kind of stuff GH usually does for sweeps, itīs exciting, but it cannot go for a long time. Itīs three days and itīs already repeating, thatīs why we wil get the Nicolīs fantasy story beginning the next week.
I must say Iīm really tired with this the show is good - Ed Scott is writing, the show is bad - Dena is back. Even Nelson said we will get back to Denaīs stuff in four weeks. This will be only two, so even if his source is right this is Ed Scottīs stuff too. And the backstage struggle happened only a week or so ago, so even assuming all the rumours are right it will take atleast another month till we get back to Denaīs stuff again.
I'll tell you what I think the difference is. The plane crash could have
had an impact, if Higley had followed up longterm on any of the events. But she didn't. A few weeks later, the plane crash could never have happened, and all of the storylines would have been pretty much the same.
The hospital storyline this week is a series of events with built-in impact. I'm not sure how this could be 'pulled out' of the current storyline. So many characters are affected, and what affects one character affects another as well. If this does turn out to be an isolated story, and the writers drop the ball, then I'd say you're right. But I don't see that happening here. Ditto for Nicole's fantasy... sure, it's a fun one-time stunt. But if it causes changes in the dynamics between the characters as a result, then it's not a "Higley-type event" at all.
Thatīs why I donīt understand why people are so upset there are other stories featured again.
