Regarding the preview - this is like 'instant murder mystery'. Set up everyone with a motive within a few weeks, someone gets killed, whooo is the killer? I bet the whole thing will be over in a week or two.
It's like Dena's just flipping through the 'soap writing playbook'. She tries different types of stories each month, then moves on to the next. Plane crash? Check. Premature baby? Over and done with. Illness? Done that, doing it again. Infidelity? You bet. I think if she'd actually invest some time in any of these stories, the viewers would become invested as well.
Well, maybe Marlena kills him, and then it'll be a great story! :D
Um, NOPE. Higley's writing is pretty bad for her too!
I wasn't going to say this, but in my mind the exact opposite of this story is the SSK story. That story featured months of intricately developed clues and leads. This is like the 'instant coffee' version of that, in my mind.
