Sucky storylines can still be in character, though. Just keep them in character and show them... and I will forgive a sucky story. Hell, John's "death" sucked balls post-funeral, but Marlena was in character, she was on, and so I'll forgive that they didn't use it to their advantage or that the story was boring and lazy.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I'd rather have them in character. And I've watched this show too long to not know what's going to happen.
John will want to forgive Kristen because she's "changed" (out of character). Kristen will play on John's willingness to believe the change, she'll make an excuse to have him come to Horton Cabin, where she'll be stuck. She calls Marlena anonymously, making her come to the island, where she will time it so that she either a) has to share a bed, naked, cuddled up to John and Marlena walks in on it, or b) she accidentally trips and ends up his lap, in his arms or on the floor with him over her... and Marlena walks in. It's first grade... err, kindergarden... soap opera. Except, these three characters have a) done this already and b) are so past first grade it is ridiculous.
That said, prove me wrong writers, I would freaking LOVE IT. Because I want to be excited about a storyline, I really do... except the characters won't really BE John and Marlena, they'll just look the same.
I guess we'll have to wait and see. If it sucks (and it very well might), then it sucks. It will at least be better - for me- than the current suckage, because it will feature some of the best this show has ever had to offer
I would rather watch ED & the DH's in sucky storylines ANYDAY of the week over the current crop of no talent hacks stinking it up in sucky storylines.
