I say keep Lucas and drop John & Marlena to recurring.
HA! One of many reasons I love you Matt.

I confess to being much more interested in Lucas' snarky comments than whether Jarlena can make it through yet another threat to their epic love. Of all the vets that MarDar brought back, Lucas was the one I wanted to keep around the most. I get that GT may not see him as a romantic lead, fine whatever. But he has such a place on this show as Will's supportive dad, Sami's snarky ex, Kate's reluctant partner-in-crime, EJ's sarcastic frenemy, Jennifer's straight-talkin' brother, etc., etc. Lucas is great for a little comedy and to say the things that the audience is thinking. I really feel like he can play a unique role on this show and I wish TPTB shared my sentiment.
His place Is so much bigger than this statement. He is a greyest Horton onscreen.

He is the only mid 30s male character that is viable as both bad and good. You could actually put him as the bad guy or good guy in a story and not have to rewrite him. He is not a character that needs to be redeemed every three minutes or darkened. He is truly gray.

He has a solid link to nearly every character which means you could have an unbrella story with him.

The Tptb are blind and dumb. But you could tell that by watching the show.
