while they're at it they need to bring Julie in more too. More Julie + Marlena, less Maggie & her eggbaby. Although since the latter is unlikely, then just less Maggie.

I want to know WHERE Marlena is. Why isn't she having tons of scenes with Sami, Eric, and Brady? And why does Maggie, a much less popular vet, get more airtime than her?
I clearly like Marlena, but I'm not the kind of person to demand airtime. However...it really doesn't make much sense. Marlena has more grown children than anyone else on canvas, but they basically refuse to use her for anything truly family related. She's been getting throwaway Christmas scenes for well over a decade, and this year would have been perfect for an awkward Thanksgiving from hell. They gave her the set up for somewhat of a story in having her be the one to play that DVD, and then they promptly sent her right back to the backburner. They're all mad at her, but it doesn't even matter because she's not onscreen. I don't need them to feature her. But for the love of Pete. Just use her. Can you imagine in 15 years having a Christmas with Will, Johnny, Allie, Sydney and all their children, and Sami just hanging out at her house by herself? I just don't understand why they can't treat their current biggest family onscreen like an actual family. Meanwhile, they're making up family members for all the other families to have those kinds of scenes with.
