John and Marlena were way to saccharine for me. I didn't ever say that John was too perfect, or Marlena too perfect. It's their relationship that comes across as too perfect (and I am talking about before John's "death").
Both characters to me got stuck in a rut, a rut that was extremely boring to watch. It doesn't matter to me who saves who more... the point is that's all John ever seems to do... save Marlena. :sleep:
As for trying to compare Jarlena to Bope and Payla... I see some comparisons. But these couples, to me anyway, are much more interesting to watch on screen. There is fire between them. They argue. They kid around with each other. Jarlena isn't like that, at least not in my opinion. It was always just ooey gooey, I love you. And of course lets not forget the incredible excitement of sitting around reading Santeen letters. ;)
This is why I really hope that when John returns that he keeps some of the nuances of NuJohn with him. I think the character would benefit greatly with not being so one dimensional anymore.
