And I would just like to say that I called that the day they announced the recast. The character of Arianna was flat when FT was playing her because she was being written flat and with nothing real to do. The writing changed immediately upon recast.

LOL DrewH and Angie - the V/O might as well be: "We've recast Arianna with a familiar face. Liked this couple on Passions? Watch them... on Days of Our Lives."
I agree, but I actually think it's a smart move (God, did I really just say that? LoL), because that's exactly the message that people will get, and I think it will work.
I agree. That is why I don't think it's bad. In all honesty, I prefer this to them promoting the arrival of Lindsey Hartley in the promos because that would just be in poor taste. I prefer they just do something like this and showcase the two characters. They have a fanbase that is quite prevalent online so I do think this will help. I just think the promo could've been better but I've been saying that for months now LOL.
Ellie, the two of them do have a story. It was built up all summer and really heated up last week. I do find it funny how everything with Brady and Arianna really heated up once Lindsey started. It's almost like they knew all along they wanted someone else in the role so they dragged their feet until the right opportunity. I mean, we saw more movement in one week under Lindsey then we did in all of Felisha's run.
Then again, it helps that Lindsey did more in one week to develop the character then Felisha ever did.
