It is a big entrance for Stefano, but if done right (and it looks like it might be!), it will be the way to jump-start the other stories that have stagnated under Higley.
Ahem, no comment about Marlena (and that's not what happens), but I think this is missing the point. Marlena is paralyzed because of an ongoing back-and-forth between Stefano and her. Stefano is exacting revenge for what she did to him, which was because of what he did to John, etc etc. That's a story! Now it sounds like she's not exactly 100% when she wakes up... I think it will be interesting to see what happens.
I thought yesterday's scenes were far from that. Stefano has not (imo) been written in character for a very long time. Now he's getting older, and he might be ready for his sons to take over, but guess what? They're 'good guys' all of a sudden and don't share his ideals. I think that's very 'deep' writing, and if it can provide the impetus for what happens to the characters, all the better.
ROFL no comment about John, but as I said, if there are lasting effects, then it's a 'fun' event (appropriate during the Olympics) which can serve as the catalyst for future stories. But if it's all forgotten soon afterwards, then I agree it's not very good writing.
I think what people are complaining about is the specific stories that are featured, rather than the fact that these stories are coming to an end. This week has featured so many of the vets, and now we have spoilers full of Max/Stephanie/Melanie/Trent/Daniel. imo in these two weeks we're getting a taste of Days centered around its core characters, and it looks like they're unfortunately moving away from that in weeks to come.
