The Rape: @3:33 mark

Damn, I miss Matt Ashford.
I miss Matt and Stephen Nichols and most importantly, the Days of our Lives that once was. With compelling, dramatic stories and interesting layered characters. Those clips really show me how far this show has fallen. I also hate how Jack was reduced to a grandpa sweater wearing background character during his last run. The character is so much more interesting when he's being a jerk, not that I want him to come back and be a criminal or rapist, but Jack with an edge was so much better than what MarDar, Tomlin, Higley, etc. gave us.
Thinking about how the show was written back then, I am reminded that the rape occurred in the same episode where Kim loses her and Shane's child after she saves Eve. It's not just that the show back then could write a compelling storyline, but it could weave multiple storylines that were powerful, complicated, and gave the actors wonderful material to work with. It's amazing to think how much the show could pack into just one episode -- and it wasn't even sweeps.
