This whole Dannifer crap is too much to take.
TPTB are desperate to hook them up and make them lovers again before Chloe returns. I understand that Jen can't go there too fast becase of Jack's death, so they are creating some insta shit up to drive them together again. Isn't that how they ended up in the first place. Dan already saved her life and now he is going to save her again... just to make Jennifer get over that last hurdle of given in to her feelings for him.

Nothing can be done to save this paring. TPTB needed to show baby steps of romance and real push and pull of feelings and emotions between these characters. This goo-goo eye staring crap is boring and their is no real good sexual tension that is felt or seen to make ppl root for them as a couple.

Dannifer are just an example of every other relationship portrayed on canvas.
DAys has lost their ability to make a real soap. Insta pairing, Insta crap...Insta boring!

The desperation is really showing too, and that's part of the reason Dannifer 2.0 is such a turn-off. Granted, I think they'd have been a hard sell anyway--even the first time around, they were bland, shallow, and substance-free, with little to no chemistry. Add in Jack's sudden, violent death, while saving Abigail, just after J&J have reunited, and you have the mood-killer to end all mood-killers.

But TIIC are being so heavy-handed, manipulative, unsubtle, and agenda-driven in their attempts to force Jen-Jen and Dr. Douche back together that they're producing the opposite reaction in viewers that they intended. The harder they push this lackluster duo, the more the audience recoils. Ironically, if they'd backed off for a decent interval, instead of having Maggie and others trying to match-make before Jack's body was even cold and making Jen-Jen obsess about Daniel's love life before her husband's ashes had even settled, they might not have had such a strong reaction against this couple. Not that Dannifer 2.0 would have been embraced, but the aversion to them might have been less violent and overwhelming. As it is, anti-Dannifer sentiment seems to be widespread and growing more prevalent by the episode.

If T&W 2 had any sense (moot point, I know), they'd cut their losses, stop trying to force something that's clearly not working, and send at least one of these characters off-canvas for a good long time. Jennifer is a mess, Daniel isn't the sun around which all of Salem revolves, and together they're much less than the sum of their parts. Forget about trying to make them into the new Tom & Alice--a less worthy pair of successors to that legacy could scarce be imagined.
