This Stomps McGee we see on screen now dies a mysterious death....The audience discovers that the Stomps McGee that has just died, is not the real Stomps McGee....Pappy has had her replaced with a doppelganger and the real Stomps McGee is in Italy being held prisoner since mid 2007 by Pappy and his hench men.
I'm kind of in love with this idea. I would totally tie it into a major adventure, old-school style, where Mute and Ineffective starts to piece things together and goes to Abby for help ('cause she's a journalism major now or something, who cares why- I'm still hooked on the idea of a Mute and Ineffective/Abby friendship for some reason). They start to investigate and cross paths with Pop Up, who's doing a little research on Bo's true whereabouts. So, of course, they all join forces. And to clear her head of her man problems, Chicken Nugget (secretly hoping to find Jack alive again) joins the team. Dan has to stay behind to care for his ailing mother and his kid.
Ultimately a whole bunch of Salemites wind up in Italy to rescue Stomps McGee and discover Bo's ultimate fate...only to face off against Peter's Sister Dimera, the true mastermind behind all of it, and her pawns Lip Gloss (I love that concept, too) and- a total surprise to everyone- Belle Black (that's what Bo was secretly doing- working with Shawn Douglas to find Belle, without alarming anyone in Salem).
Relationships develop and fray against the background of the action instead of being the focus. And it's a summer thing with a special name, so there's a promise of a beginning middle and end, all nice and cohesive.
I'd have this lead into a Jen-goes-crazy story when she begins to see visions of Jack, who's not really alive but is being impersonated...by Peter Blake.
THIS! I'm telling you if we all put our heads together, we'd come up with something so good. Frankly I miss JER's wacky stories, at least they were entertaining and interesting, they kept you on the edge of your seat and they usually involved something outside the country. I know the location shoots are gone but at the very least give me something that feels like they went to another country or something.
