Man, so many awesome stories...|
1.) Carly Buried Alive - to this day, I can't go through a graveyard without thinking of this storyline. I also credit JER for making me chlaustrophobic, which I never was until this storyline.
2.) The Possession - Such an amazing story. Crazy, yes. Campy, yes. But when it comes to a story that celebrates the power of love, you just can't beat it. JER wrote the most beautiful stories for John and Marlena -- he wrote them like a poet. They were apart for virtually the entire time he wrote for them, yet fans loved him. That goes to show just how powerful a good story can be. It burned slowly and it gave an immense payoff.
3.) Sami/Austin/Carrie - this triangle turned Sami Brady into the quintessential bitch of the 90's and paved the way for her to become one of the show's most unforgettable characters.
4.) Maison Blanche - my God! So good, such an amazing story. This was the best that Stefano DiMera was ever written, IMO.
5.) The Secret Room - we all know how I feel about Kristen. :) This story showcased the divine Eileen Davidson in all her glory and turned her into my all-time favorite soap opera villainess.
It just doesn't get any better than JER during the 90's. No era on any other soap has EVER come close. JER wrote both my favorite soap stories ever as well as my least favorite soap stories ever. There was no in between for him, and I'm sure he wouldn't have had it any other way.
