Dena Higley doens't have a clue as to how to write Stefano. He's become an awful caricature of his former self and I'd rather him not be on screen in this incarnation. Seriously, how lame and cheesy is it when Stefano is talking to himself and toasting with a glass of wine? Give me a break! His obsession with knocking women up for "heirs" is also creepy... I want the old Stefano, the REAL villain, not this reformed family man who is kind of bad, kind of good (but we aren't really sure).
See, that's the scenes I like the most with Stefano these days (and his scenes with Lexie of course). I love when Stefano sits in his chair drinking and playing chess as he plans something.
I don't disagree, but Higley's scenes of Stefano talking to himself never seem pertinent to any plan! He just seems like a cocky old man, sitting in his huge house in an expensive suit with nothing better to do with himself, lol. There's something stereotypical about the way Higley writes him, as he seems to have no layers whatsoever.

Aside from Lexie, Marlena and Stefano is always GREAT story. I love their chemistry - they easily could have done a Stefano/Kate vs. John/Marlena story. How great would that have been?? But now we're stuck with the Good doctor and Kate's illness, which frankly, is putting me to sleep. I could care less and Kate is one of my all time favorite DAYS characters. I don't even see why she started the Stefano/Kate story if she wasn't planning on heading in that direction.
