Well, it doesn't have to be just like that. Frankly, I always thought their was material to be mined from the fact that, sixteen years later maybe Steve and Kayla weren't as compatible as they once were. They'd grown into middle-aged separately with different experiences and become different people. I didn't like how, as soon as Steve got his memory back, they seemed to comfortably settle in to their old rhythm. That wouldn't happen. So I'd buy an explanation that now that the excitement of DiMera nonsense and crazed ex-lovers and new babies had settled down, Steve and Kayla decided they didn't work anymore. Maybe Steve, upset that he's missed so much, wants to be constantly going out and experiencing new things and living a life of discovery, while Kayla is much more settled and doesn't want them to be like how they were when they were kids again, because she's grown past it.

Well, it sucks that Stephen Nichols being on Y&R would keep MBE from having a steady gig on Days when she deserves one. I guess there's nothing wrong with her being like this, as long as she's like officially on recurring status but comes and goes Doug and Julie style. But if people accepted Justin and Jennifer coming back sans Adrienne and Jack, couldn't they accept Kayla doing the same? At least in Kayla's case it would be because Stephen Nichols is not available.
Now stop that! Don't you think I've been through enough hell as a Jack and Jennifer fan? I'm also an S&K fan, do you really want me to suffer through another round of "Steve doesn't care about me or our marriage anymore ... I haven't heard from him in months ... I think I'll just divorce him, it's no biggie since I've only loved him about 25 years and could never move on but I'll just dump him now ..." Cue Kayla's medical emergency and Dr. Jonas to the rescue which results in Kayla falling for Saint Daniel and Dr. Grabby Hands declaring Kayla his latest "true love." No thanks! I'm betting that MBE is just back for a short while like before. Guess we'll see.
Exactly. No thanks to another round of that. But it could very well be a short stint, kind of like we've seen recently with her, though I'd like her to be more involved (just not romantically with someone who isn't Steve).
I dunno, something like that. They could come up with something true to the characters that doesn't just make Steve into an OTT asshole and have Kayla boning the first guy she sees. And something like that leaves room for Steve to come back when and if SN wants and them work it out.
