I feel like I'm crazy. I remember the stalker killings and hated them. I hated one of my favorite characters killing Doug, Maggie, Roman, Tony, the characters I loved (yes, I even liked Roman then because he was with Kate). The scene with Alice just killed me. I was praying John, Bo, anyone would get there to save Alice. That scene, all those scenes, just hurt. I wasn't online then, but I can't imagine anyone cheering this on. I still hate that s/l to this day, and I'm generally fairly forgiving of storylines.
I could have sworn there was tremendous backlash from them killing off Alice.
I've hated many sendoffs through the years. I STILL hate Kim and Shane not getting reunited and at least sent off together. I don't understand why the fact that there have been other bad stories make this one any less painful?
This article spoke volumes to me. Not just because John and Marlena are gone and got a terrible send-off, but because the show that used to be about love and relationships, friends and family isn't anymore, at least not to me.
I really appreciate the kind sympathetic thoughts and words from fans that weren't J&M fans. I've always felt Days was an ensemble show. I wouldn't have enjoyed John and Marlena as much over the years if it weren't for characters like Alice, Caroline, Shawn, Kim, Kayla, Bo, Abe, Lexie, Maggie, Mickey, Mike, Jennifer, Anna, Calliope (I just loved her), Vivian, Vic, etc. There have been great actors/characters on this show over the years, and I'm thankful for the great memories I have. There's still a lot more I wanted to see, but there probably always would be.
I've come to terms with the show I love being gone, but I do wish the best for those remaining.
