Thanks for posting this. So interesting!

My favorite part from Dee: “We still come to you every day with our honesty and our tenderness, and we comfort people in their homes,” she said. “That’s a thing Americans can’t afford to lose, especially now.”

Dee is so right. Marlena has the most comforting voice and no matter what's going on in your world, she puts you at ease.
I agree. That's why I got hooked on DAYS way back when. The storylines were outlandish (I started during Reilly) and weird, and I didn't quite get them, but I was hooked by Marlena and by John & Marlena's love story. I didn't need the writers to tell me John & Marlena were meant to be, nor would I believe that John loved Kristen or Marlena was happy without John. Because when Marlena was onscreen, she felt familiar. And when John looked at Marlena, I knew he loved her, and I wanted to see them end up together.

That's, to me, what soaps are really about.
