Can you imagine what Reilly would do with this story?

Oh God! My personal EVERYTHING is in that picture above!! Head writer James E. Reilly was at his peak during this point and apparently there's no daytime writer out there than can repeat the greatness that was the story in which that picture came from. I'll go out on a limb and say he wasnt fully recognized for his greatness until he was gone. He sadly became overworked (IMO) during his later days and it (or Corday, studio interference) interfered with his work but when that man was on, he was ON!! I was already a fan of Days when Kristen first hit the show and I found her bland and boring. How amazing it is at what a years worth of story can do for a character if planned correctly. Just when I got off the edge of my seat when Carly was buried alive, I was back on it for the possession. After I got off the edge when rain finally hit Salem again, I was on it again for Aremid and it did not let up when Kristen Blake went, what may be, the most batshit crazy in daytime! I wonder what Reilly would do with Kristen now. *sigh*
