Love love love Marlena! Never realized how much until she was gone.
And while she was gone, I realized why... Marlena seems like home. For me, yeah, she was and is my favorite character, but there's just something about her that is so ... home. The show needs her because she's its heart and soul. There's just something warm and comforting about her that the show needs, IMO.

Favorite character. FAVORITE FREAKING CHARACTER! Surprised? No? Weeeelllll... I'm easy to read. Marlena's the most interesting character, and I really wish writers would take advantage of her history and WRITE for her. Deidre can carry a story all by herself if needed (even though I prefer it be J&M as a married couple), take advantage of it, dammit! She can have her own story AND still interact with other characters. I love her interaction with Will and Jack, but I also want her to actually have scenes with her husband.

I mean, look at her history, everything the character's been through. Rape, lost two children, stalked, deaths of husbands, obsessive men, missing years, kidnappingS... there's a lot to draw on and use for future story.

I'm still surprised they haven't done a cancer story. Or at least a scare. Such a soap staple, and Marlena's a staple.
