I'm just curious, J&M fans. What if they DO come back? How do you think you'll react? I can understand your not wanting them to come back because of poor storylines or pride or whatever (heck, I wish JKJ had taken his chances, but I can understand why he didn't), but do you honestly think you won't be happy if they do return? I'm kinda getting mixed signals here. What if the rumor holds true? And please don't give me answers about Corday's jackass-ery and "they won't come back. I hope they throw the offer in his face" stuff. I've read all that already.
I really want to know how you think you'll react if, 6 months down the road, they accept an offer to come back, recurring or contract. No, I'm not trying to be a jackass myself. I'm trying to understand. Would you be elated? Would you be totally disappointed in them? Or would you take a "wait and see" attitude about how they'll be written?
Take my question as you will, but as they asked Jesus in JC Superstar "I really wanna know". Thank you. :)
I'd be disappointed and I do not plan to return to Days after January 23. That includes watching when it airs, watching repeats on Soapnet or DVR'in episodes. I would watch youtube clips of there return however as I love J&M more than I detest Days.
The disappointment would be because I am vindictive and I love when people who have been screwed have a chance to say, "take that" to the person or persons that wronged them. I would however understand how D&D would go back because I think they genuinely love the show and the cast. Deidre has never uttered a bad word about the show, s/l's, writers, direction, etc. While Drake has made some minor comments which can be considered slips because his mouth gets away from him sometimes, I think he too loves Days and working there.
I think those are the mixed signals that you are getting from Jarlena fans. We want Drake and Dee to say "FU" for some poetic justice but we know they love the show and we love them and understand their motivations.
The only thing that would totally surprise me and wake me up, would be if they had a good send off in January, some decent scenes and something a little special for all their years on the show. That would totally surprise me. Other then that, I don't think anything could or has surprised me, especially in the last five years.
