Viewing Single Post From: Drake Hogestyn removed from credits as of 7/2

I've never been a huge Hogestyn fan, but the treatment of such a historic character was awful, and I don't blame Hogestyn if he got upset. They wrote him an awful, out-of-character story, then they crapped on his character by making him look like an idiot, and then they dumped him. Personally, as a child I grew up on Roman/Marlena, so if they reverted to that pairing in a believable way I could go along with it (although it would be tough needle to thread after hearing about how John and Marlena are each other's true loves for the past twenty years). But the problem with Roman/Marlena is that it needs to be Wayne Northrup. Josh Taylor is fine as stand-alone Roman (or in the Roman/Kate pairing). But as part of the Roman/Marlena couple? No. Never has worked, never will.

If Wayne Northrup isn't coming back, then let Marlena remain single for a while and kick some butt with Kristen in a storyline not focused on her love life. Maybe at that point, John can return, fully rehabilitated and written in a way which allows him to be recognizable to those viewers who have followed the show for more than six months. Otherwise, keep her single until they get Wayne's agent on the phone.
