Well, first off. I thought Sandra was charming in the interview. She could have talked forever :)
And sure the story for John and Marlena stinks. Did anyone really think that they were going to get this amazing, romantic departure, so people would miss them? It's clear to me IMO, the people who are most upset about Dee and Drake leaving, were really only watching for Dee and Drake. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I'm sure TPTB know that. Personally, I don't think they do anything for the show as a couple anymore. The story has been played out. If John had stayed dead, there was still lots of potential for Marlena. But together, the ship has sailed. I often wonder how the Doug and Julie fans felt when their entire story became about Bo and Hope and then were written out in such a cavalier way. I feel bad for fans of J&M, just as I did for those who vowed never to watch again when Matt Ashford was fired and Jack and Jennifer ended. But this isn't a book with a beginning, middle, and an end. Sometimes, characters need to be rested. And in this case, I think John and Marlena are at that point. It is really rotten that they seem to be getting such a bad, ending story. But, I'm not sorry to see a new character on the show, and two characters written off who have reached their expiration date.
ICAM. After awhile it's time to just let them go. The show can't live in the past forever.
You're being kind. It isn't somtimes. It's kinda cute on someone Stephanies age, not so much when Marlena does it.
Sometimes I think Dee overdoes the breathy ingenue thing in love scenes.
