Aww, lysie. I love it when you give me S&K clips. :)
I love that patch removal clip. It's so early in their "relationship" but it sets up so many themes that will carry all the way through: Steve's instinctive resistence to letting anyone help him; Kayla's determination to break through that resistence; the emotion and insecurites Steve has about the patch; the fact that Kayla doesn't care about it and, in a lot of ways, doesn't even see it; the underlying connection the characters have; the wonderful chemistry the actors share; the physicality SN brings to the role; the complimentary stillness the MBE uses to balance it.
I miss them.
Steve & Kayla embody what Days was for me & why I can't totally let go. I know that at one time this show & these characters had me on the edge of my seat, unwilling to miss a day, & reduced to tears (not from disgust or boredom).
There is a small part of me still holding out hope that we could have this again.
Good call, Lysie.
