I give Greason credit that she said herself that she knew the audience wanted John and Marlena; she said she didnt blame them because J/M were her favorite couple when she watched in high school

Just adding on....
Whatever the reason was for Greason's departure.......she was also interested in moving behind-the-camera. She wanted to get into writing, and to that end, the show gave her a chance, and put her on the writing staff for a period, following Isabella's on-screen departure. I don't recall how long, but I know that she was. I'm not just going from my fading memory of the credits 16 years ago on that one, lol. I met her several years ago. shortly after ghostly-Isabella had appeared to Brady, and struck up a brief conversation with her. It was sort of a general, "it was so nice to see you on the show again, I really loved Izzy back in the day" type of convo.....but I asked her at some point, "Didn't you also write for the show, after Isabella died?" She replied, with a self-depricating chuckle, "Yes, but that didn't last long. It was VERY hard and I was NOT good at it!"
