True, all good points! I like how you put it about "bridging the gap". It's an interesting writing choice - I would have preferred that they'd stayed with the direction they went with in the spring, where Marlena was the one who could bring out 'new John's' emotions, and John acknowledged that and fell for her in the process. But given that they seem to have extended the story (to say the least) and brought Stefano back on the scene, I think that if this is written well, as you're saying, it could really be a very interesting twist.
Can't wait to watch the Tony/John scene you mention. Stefano was obsessed with Marlena even before John came on the scene, but when J&M fell in love, that infuriated Stefano beyond belief. Aside from the fact that as we're discussing, they're using that to drive the current story, I'm so happy that they're even mentioning it in the first place. Let's just say that it's MUCH more true to history than Santo and Colleen, lol. This is the type of writing (imo) that should be taking place for all the characters... stories which acknowledge and build on their rich history together.
