Maybe it's time to show Marlena as more of a true, independent woman rather than hanging onto a John that's no longer her John for sentimental reasons. And, like Phoenix said, a reunion down the road. John is going to have to work for her love. I'd rather Marlena have to work for JOHN'S love, because we just kinda went through "John working to win Marlena back" through the whole amnesia thing, but there you have it.

If they didn't do this, truly, they probably wouldn't have a storyline. They're running out of ideas that would make the masses happy. It would be nice to see Marlena stick through with John while they deal with the headaches, but Kate is cornering the market on the Deathly Illness of the Season. And cornering it very well, I might add. That's why i enjoy being a general fan! If I don't like one storyline, I can give my attention to another and still continue with the show.
I'd like to see John and Marlena both as independent strong people again. I also agree that I'd rather have seen Marlena work for John's love and her stick with him thru this brain cloud crisis that seems to have disappeared for the moment.

I do think the writers are having trouble thinking up any other storyline, but I really don't understand why. I can think of so many stories I'd love to see them in that have nothing to do with breaking them up. Risk and angst and concern, yes, but I'd like some stories about the strength of love and triumph vs. love failing. Ensemble stories where J&M and other characters are involved in the community and get caught up in taking risks to help others, making a difference. I love a good love story, but they haven't had a good love story on this show in quite a while. I'd rather have some good stories that lead to new love stories for other couples while showing the strength of love these 'special' couples who have already had their love tested instead of a break them up put them back together story.

I know I'm dreaming, but I do think good stories could be written. There can still be angst and fun and love shown for a couple already deeply in love.

J&M are my favorite couple, but I am also usually a general fan as well. I'm following other stories like Abe/Lexie, Date, and Stefano stuff, but there is no really good story keeping me involved and that's probably my biggest problem. I'm trying to keep watching.
