Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Wow, this sounds a lot like what people complained about during the Jack/Jennifer/Daniel debacle. I think we were supposed to see Jennifer have feelings for Jack all through the Fall, but MR didn't play it that way. After MA left the show (and the writers changed), he said that MR hated the writing of the triangle and she knew that it was OOC and that the fans wouldn't accept it.

Hmm. Again, it makes me think that the actors are being hamstrung by the writing and the direction.

That could be true about MR, but she sure didn't have problems emoting in scenes with SC's Daniel, IMO.

As for DH, he may not have understood John's motive with Kristen, but he does know that John has loved Doc for decades. He could have shown that if nothing else.
Unless the director is telling him not to show it.

It's been a long day, so admittedly my brain isn't functioning as quickly as usual, but I'm having a hard time understanding why a director would tell DH not to show any emotions whatsoever. Would this lack of total emotion somehow make us believe that John was falling for Kristen or something? No matter how we slice it, John's motives made/make little sense, and the actor's portrayal didn't help, IMO, "director" or no director.

At least if I saw that he cared for Doc and gave a flying fig that he was/is hurting her, I could probably cut the brother some slack. As it is, I think the only thing Marlena should give him is a swift kick in the same nuts he is trying to give to Kristen.
