It would be such a copout to have The Big Bad DiMeras behind everything. Talk about replaying the 1990s over. The one decent point that arose out of the awful Santeen Year was that the Bradys were as responsible for the decades-long "vendetta".
And the DiMera Family Rise to Respectability has been underway ever since. Yes, they are dastardly druglords, hiring assassins, and other creepy behavior. But they were matched crime-for-crime by the Kiriakii.
I am personally ambivalent about Elvis. He should be a tween after all, not a thirty-something race-car-driving, Steve-Johnson-torturing-, black-gloved diabolical druglord/attorney. Making him the "bad guy" in the Sydnapping is a yawner. How would it drive the story? By driving RafeJohn into SamiLena's arms? Yawners to the 100th degree.
And Anna as demented, money-hungry krazy kidnapper is equally yawner. Fun, perhaps, but hardly the catalyst to drive the story to a new level. And not much of a "twist".
RafeJohn and SamiLena need a spark to their relationship. And I can already see SamiLena snarling at RafeJohn that he "has a secret he won't share (about his dead wife) and so she had one too (about her alive daughter)". After all. Sami's plans NEVER work out. That's part of her charm.
