After all... tomorrow is another day!
Hogan destroyed the character of Steve Johnson.
SN is an amazing actor, but in the end, I don't think even his talents could to overcome the carnage that Hogan Sheffer inflicted on Steve.
From his amnesia story that seemed to have no beginning or real believable ending (except for the one MBE and SN had to put in themselves!)... to the goofy 12-year-old DiMera torturing him and programming him to be an assassin via tarot card back story... to his random heroic turns both in helping Shawn and Belle in their escape to Canada and tracking down Elvis in Mexico... to his bizarro abusive side coming out where he actually physically hurt Kayla... to his time in the mental health facility that was insensitively played for laughs... ugh. It was just dreadful. Then there were the random Billie and Ava diversions with no real Steve and Kayla falling back in love with each other stories?
In my opinion, it was practically impossible for anyone but die-hard Steve and Kayla fans who cared so much about Steve from his previous run to really get behind the character.
That said, I will try to tune in and give Y&R another shot to try to draw me in on a regular basis once SN starts up again, but with the current writing regime (including the aforementioned HS) they have there I'm not holding my breath.
As I may have said earlier in the thread, I'd much rather SN would have wound up on GH in the upcoming Cassedine-vs.-Spencer story.
