Marlena (and John) are the reason I started watching Days in the first place. Flipping channels one day and they made me flip back. I guess I was lucky. They were exactly the kind of soap couple I had always hoped for, but in the beginning I was afraid to get too invested because I had watched soaps before and I knew the drill, lol. I just didn't want to see that happen to them. When I like something, I like it..the end, lol, and for me they were the very best. Have to say that 19 years later I feel the same way about them. I was also lucky because they had such great stories, that only made their love for each other, and mine for them stronger. I loved that they didn't play mean games with each other, and that circumstances beyond their control kept them apart...if they had a choice, you always knew they would choose each other...you just had (have) to look at the way they look at each other. And ya...I love their passion for each other. |
To top it all off, there was Marlena. A strong, beautiful, smart, fun, sweet character who loved her family and John with all her heart and always tried to do the right thing. When she makes a mistake, she never makes excuses. She takes responsibility no matter the consequences. She is fierce. She's a friend, Mother, Stepmother, Grandmother, best friend and Wife and would do anything for the people in her life. Love her. I hope she is front burner soon, because for me she is the heart of the show.
