Very happy with this and it makes perfect sense. I just wonder if Corday was out of loop as usual because he said Phillip/Stephanie and Melanie/Nathan are the rooting couples, but so far it looks like Phillip/Steph had a clean break and she is fully focused on Nathan now. So I wonder if after year+ chemistry testing the writers finally decided to give Philip/Mel a real chance, especially when Steph/Nathan took off surprisingly good as well and there is definitely a lot to explore.

I figured he was, although he would be that moronic to give away the outcome of the story LOL.

I honestly don't think the writers know the endgame yet, though. I think they have it planned to go either way and that is a good thing. I think they are treating it like they did last Fall with Lucas/Chloe/Daniel. Chloe and Daniel were not written at the beginning to be long-term. It seemed like as soon as they started getting a favorable response that the writing changed to them being "destined lovers" and they became the rooting interest. I think we could be seeing signs of the same thing happened here. They may be changing gears to Steph/Nathan and Philip/Melanie knowing full well that Philip/Steph and Melanie/Nathan have fans too in case they ever have to go back in that direction.

I like this though. They are just letting things naturally fall into place and then they will see what seems like the best route to go for the show. That is what I like about this show the past year or so. They set things up so wonderfully and they plan long-term but also keep themselves open to going in another direction. That's the best way to do it.

Egads - will Philip never be free of dating teenagers? Now he's in LOVE with Melanie? Wasn't he just in love with Stephanie like yesterday?

As Paxton once said, Phelanie "in love" is the lamest lame that ever lamed.

JKJ deserves so much better than to be MB's prop in a triangle.

YAYYYYY!!! I LOVE IT!

Sorry, but Burnett & JKJ just sizzle!
That they do!

I have little to no faith in the writers to tell a romantic story romantically.

Molly Burnett needs no propping. DAYS is lucky to have her.

No one can predict when two actors are going to have chemistry. It's unplanned and it just happens.

JKJ/MB have it and the writers should capitilize on it.

This is Salem. Give Melanie several birthdays overnight.

It's not like it hasn't happened before. Brady's now older than Sami and he and Belle aged ten years overnight.

Well, maybe they're hoping Melanie/Philip will be the next Jack/Jennifer. My inner jury is still out on these two. Melanie is just too perky for me. Well, Jennifer was perky, too, so who knows? I would rather see Philip play with the big boys (and girls!). I don't think Molly Burnett is quite ready for that. Her spunk comes across as too teenybopper with very little maturity. Now, if they show her saving a life (never mind the funeral home stuff and working with Nathan to save Chloe) in a MATURE manner rather than a BettyBoop manner, I might change my mind. I think I'd like her better, too, if I didn't see so many pictures of her at the Day of Days trying to be a gum model. (Gums as in the gums of your mouth). She just seems too forced and her "bubbliness" seems too "Hey, look at me! Aren't I cute, perk, and bubbly?"
YMMV

I love Melanie with Nathan....he knows she's no saint but he's still willing to be with her. They are also more each others age and if tptb could just make this a romantic s/l between the two of them. :smooch: Phillip can find someone else...he's handsome and rich....he could even play the field for a while, but please no Stephanie. :eyeroll:

Cuz she is cute and bubbly, that's why I like her.

She also had Phil's back when she helped him find Stephanie and risked her life to do it. She hasn't judged Phil nor asked him to change and Phil doesn't want her to change, either. He's not trying to be her daddy or her big brother because he doesn't think she needs guidance. They accept each other for who they are not who they want them to be.

Which is why Stephanie and Nathan are perfect. They're the people they're trying to get Phil and Melanie to change into.

Melanie and Nathan have a nice connection. Between her and Phillip, it seems to be all about jumping eachother's bones.

If he wants cute and bubbly, maybe he should adopt a puppy? :D

Cuz it would just go the way of Pookie and various children rarely seen and I want Phil and Mel on more often.

Cute and bubbly is ok. Cute,bubbly AND talking in a baby voice kind of makes it hard to take her seriously in what are supposed to be serious scenes. I like her in every other scene though!
