We hardly saw John and Marlena when she was on and now Drake is just gone....no explanation. Such great writing....

I do agree that Kristen is the kind of character that is hard to keep on for a long time, hard for DAYS anyway, because they don't think ahead very long-term as I see it. But I really like Eileen and think she's one of the best actors on the show. I didn't like everything about her plot, some of the details were off, but I did like the general gist of certain flourishes. I wish she had a better acting partner to work off of than Eric Martsolf, and what I wanted most was for her to struggle for domination against EJ, I would've loved to see her wipe the floor with him instead. They've never had any bonding time, why should two competitive schemers like them get along? That was what I wanted most from Kristen, a war between her and EJ. My complaints about her story aside, it was hardly my least favorite part of the show. I hope Eileen can come back some day, I wish her well and hope this move makes her happy. I also wonder how much of John and Marlena we will see after she leaves.
