And earlier in the month there was that snowstorm that trapped people together: EJ/Nicole, Jack/Jennifer, Victor/Maggie, Brady/Madison (OK, so we didn't know how underwhelming those two would ultimately turn out to be). And dynamics shifted between all these couples. EJ/Nicole made love; Jennifer got a first-hand look at just how much Jack had suffered in captivity and admitted that she still loved him (leaving aside that she morphed into a cold, uncaring, Daniel-obsessed bitch afterwards); Victor/Maggie got married; and Brady/Madison got to know each other better. And except for Madison, these were characters and couples in whom the core audience was invested. And IIRC, this was the episode DAYS submitted in the Best Writing category for the Daytime Emmys--and it won.
Flash forward a year, and November sweeps is all about characters and/or couples we don't especially care about. And the characters we do care about, who have real dramatic potential, aren't engaged in anything that spectacular or compelling. They flit around having random scenes and interactions, but no story to speak of. The whole month is shaping up to be a major snooze-fest, when it isn't actually painful to watch. :sleep:
