It's simple. NBC has some sort of fetish with Passions.
Unlike with Santa Barbara, Another World, and Sunset Beach....NBC just could not let Passions go. It let it drag on on and with one year renewals when it was mentioned several times by some affiliates that it wasn't making enough in profits. Then it cancels it but fights like hell for it to live on elsewhere. It gets on DIRECTV and it cancels it soon after but even then NBC tries to save it.
I really do think the hirings of Martsolf and Gering was a combination of Tomlin (who worked with them) and NBC influence.
As for the Dimera war story, who knows. I think the show is trying to get other stories going right now. I still think Thaoo is one whose job was saved by his Emmy nod. I really do. His situation just reeks of keeping him around to avoid negative press, something they had to take when they got rid of Martha. Martha was not an Emmy nominated actress but she was a critical and fan darling so the show really had to deal with lots of negative press. They didn't want to do that with Thaoo and, in all honesty, I think Tony and Anna are kept around just for window dressing and add to the story. Hopefully that changes.
