I don't like the focus on a few specific characters, and a complex umbrella story would be nice, but I actually don't mind the short stints. It makes me think there may be more planning happening in the writers' room, and it gives the show more flexibility instead of locking in a huge cast for a long time. And it introduces actual uncertainty about what will happen next, which is important to do somehow, if you're going to have an audience that is invested in the show.

TomSell's shift is now on and I am having trouble get invested in any of their SLs. I hate short SL arcs with MB leaving or NB & BB coming, but only for a short stint, makes me think ED is in the same boat. I much prefer a long SL that encompasses most Salemites. No BOPE or Jarlena for so many weeks now and........ I am already in Jack withdrawl... so tell me what is there to hang on to? Nick getting in or out of jail is just not enough for me to make time to watch. TPTB are getting too character focused right now. I hate it!
