Also very true. I go to my J&M in that case. Drake auditioned (and got, obviously) for a role to last a few months to be a man of mystery, but Sheri was so overwhelmed by the chemistry between Drake and Deidre, plus the fans immediately wanted Marlena to be with "John Black" and so they had to consider the course to take. There were no hints that John was Roman in the MONTHS it took before J&M even got really close. Everyone (characters) could see they were falling for each other, but there were no scarfs, no anvils, it was just chemistry, and they took advantage of what was right in front of them. Win, win for all parts. Drake got a job that was secure for a long, long time; Deidre got her wish (she voted for Drake to get the part); Sheri got to write one of the best love stories in all of Daytime and fans got their wish for John & Marlena to be together. But it wasn't done overnight.
I agree that Sami and Lucas sincerely did have the next best shot, after Austin and Carrie, and maybe Phillip and Chloe, to be the long-lasting, love-you-forever couple.
