Higley hated John and Marlena and wrote them VERY out of character. I will never mourn her departure from my favorite show.

Lucas was Jack's best man because there was no one else to stand in, LOL. So they went with Jennifer's brother. It was Higley. Nothing during her first stint on the show made sense. Or her second.
I'm no fan of Higley, but she did put an end to Colin/Jennifer and the pigsex baby that was rumored to be in the works before she took over. Also, she put Jack and Jennifer back together, and set them to working with Bope to do some fun (if a little lame) sleuthing on the corrupt DA scandal. I'll give her credit for that. Of course, she then came up with that silly In The House thing that back-burnered JnJ, but that was about the time JER was transitioning in and coming up with his many ways to kill off Jack and the others :shudders:. So in hindsight, her first stint comes across as relatively better than most of the modern era writing regimes, imo -- and certainly much better than her own second go-round. :shudders again:
