I'd really like to know what the original plan for that story was. I think the actual SSK story was good. It wasn't until they started "fixing" it that everything went off the rails, IMO.

This is totally silly and something I for one will never believe, for people to say that they didn't like that storyline because it was great and the best storyline there was during that time!!!
Believe it or not (!!!) I didn't really think that storyline was much to write home about. C'est la vie. I also don't give a shit about Rex or Cassie to this day.
Couldn't agree more. I do think some of the scenes were extremely well written and produced, and the shock value was certainly there, but the overall benefit to the long-term health of the show was nil. I still cringe at the ridiculous references like Maggie and Mickey living at "1313 Mockingbird Lane" or visuals like Marlena's flying casket. Sigh... I know some people like to canonize JER now that he's dead, but I think he did far more harm to the show during his second go-round than he did benefit the first. Because of him, death will never again be taken seriously on this show.
