TVG: Are you still watching Days of Our Lives?
DH: No. I did for a little while, but I saw too many new faces so it was hard to follow.

Love her. Why did she keep calling Wayne Northrup's character Dr. Norris though? Wasn't it Dr. North? Regardless, I agree with what she said about the terrible way they wrote that character. Such a squandered opportunity.

As for John and Marlena's piss-poor exits, I think the writers wrote it that way on purpose. They wanted to get rid of the characters while stirring up as little of a shit-storm as possible. They wanted to transition to nu-Days with minimal negative publicity, so they ushered John and Marlena out in the blink of an eye. It was like ripping off a Band-Aid. Quick and painful. The intention was never to pay off the fans or celebrate the history of John and Marlena through a beautiful exit. The intention was simply to erase them from the show as quickly as possible and pray for minimal backlash. Such a shame.

Oooh, and how interesting that she says the Salem Serial Killer victims were never meant to be alive in the end. In fact, her exact words are "James (Reilly) was forced to change it at the last minute." More proof that Ken Corday is a liar, LoL.
The Alex North comments were funny LOL.

As for the exits, I disagree. If they didn't want to cause a storm and get negative publicity, why write such a malicious end for them? Yes, they rushed the exit but they also made the exit very disrespectful. If they had rushed them off without paralyzing John, then I could see what your saying but it was clear they could care less about publicity in any of the exits at that time (J&M, S&K, Tony). You could tell the show had enough of the fanbases and was sticking up a giant middle finger at them, especially J&M.

As for the SSK stuff, I'm not surprised. There were always rumors of that never being the plan. In fact, I still remember SON posting a news item that Tanya Boyd's Celeste was next to die after Tony but within a day the story disappeared and we soon got word that Bill Hayes's Doug was next. Not to mention, Hayes was promised he would not be killed and the deaths got so random after that. Doug seeing Marlena leaving Tony's room after "killing" him was clearly a last minute change and I don't think for a minute Corday would ever kill off Frances Reid's Alice like that without knowing she would be back.

That story got changed so many times after Tony's death that it was shameful. Hell, I felt the Melaswen story changed several times.
