SOW: Stefano Controls John And Hope; 4/3/12 issue

In Alamainia, John and Hope agree to Stefano's demand that they become their art-stealing alters to recover a valuable Anastasia egg. "Stefano has threatened to take out Marlena, so John and Hope agree to become The Pawn and Princess Gina again," previews Drake Hogestyn.

Stefano makes arrangements for a hypnotist to conduct their transformation. "John and Hope only have a few minutes to gather themselves," says Hogestyn. "John tells Hope, 'We've been down this road before. We need to prepare ourselves. Find that place somewhere deep in your brain that Stefano can't reach, some place that is safe. Lock away your memories and your love for Bo.' It's the only thing John and Hope can do to save their lives."

They hypnotist arrives and the duo is placed under a hypnotic trance and drugged. They regain consciousness and share a passionate kiss. Stefano smiles, pleased by the hypnotist's success.

Hogestyn shares, "John, as the Pawn, asks, 'What year is it?' Stefano says that it's 2012 and John remarks, 'Damn, I had bets on the World Cup of 1993. Who won?'" John and Hope, who is now Princess Gina, also ask what has happened since 1993, but Stefano refuses to tell them. "He doesn't want them to know where they've been or who they were between the years 1993 and 2012," explains the actor.

Later, Stefano instructs the duo that their mission is to locate the valuable art piece they hid away and return it to him. "Stefano says after they do what he wants, he will let them resume their lives as the Princess and The Pawn and go off to wherever they please, " Hogestyn teases. "The adventure begins."

I actually don't hate Stefano hypnotizing John and Hope to turn them back into Pawn and Gine to find an Anastasia egg - that is very old school JER-like Days of our Lives. What I'm really skeptical about is how this is going to play out. Goofy stuff like this worked with JER because he was such a good storyteller and played out the beats effectively. The fact that they just start kissing and then ask what year it is doesn't give me a lot of hope.

I hope John and Hope aren't really hypnotized, and they're going to pull a fast one on Stefano. For the most part spoilers dont' support my hope, but this helps: "John and Hope only have a few minutes to gather themselves," says Hogestyn.

Good question. Whatever it is, it had better be huge to have made him cry like that. My recent experiences on soaps (Y&R) though is they build up these huge secrets and then the reveal leaves me :shame: :shrug:

John was having an Affair with Marlena in 1993 and Hope I believe was off the show this was the time she was being controlled by Stef (as Hope/PG) working by herself. One word....Stupid. So tired of how they have to twist so much just to make this work. Why didn't Stef just have Hop/PG get the egg for him when she working for him alone? Again, John never worked with Hopina...he worked with the real PG before he came to Salem. Oh, and John has already said that he remembered everything about being Stef's Pawn, (I think that was only a few weeks ago he said that?) and now he doesn't remember anything? Someone explain this to me, lol. And yes, I get that I am supposed to believe that John and Hopiina ran off in 1999 to Alamania and had a life (even though they were in Hawaii on a Sub with Stefano, lol)

I hope we do find out what was in that letter. But given the way how they drop things so fast, I'm not getting my hopes up.

I think it's pretty clear that the writers are making this story up as they go along.

Wait wait wait...WTF..1993...that is ASS backwards!!

Princess Gina was over in 2000 or 2001 right?

I like the sounds of this, but the dating is WAY WAY WAY too far off...I wish they would have just left that shit off.

1993 works for Hope. She was supposedly parading around the world as Princess Gina in those four years Hope was presumed dead between 1990-1994. However, I'm confused about John. He had a pretty strong presence in Salem in 1993. Were there any times when he was off-screen for a specific reason?

Oh well. I can't wait to see Alfonso playing Princess Gina again. The eyebrow returns!

Only true Days fans would read this storyline scoop and focus on the year as the unacceptably illogical part of this whole deal.

I'm not sure if I care. It seems like a moderately-entertaining step on the path to them being rescued by Marlena and Bo and the love they share. I hope there's something more, like they're pretending, or Stefano is fucking with them in ways yet-to-be revealed.

Between pursuing Marlena, having an affair with her, trying to find out if the woman he loved was carrying his baby, fighting with Kritter, being disappointed that Marlena's baby wasn't his, screwing Kritter, delivering Belle and then trying to find Belle after she was kidnapped... John didn't have much time.

It's just... you don't fuck with 1993, for J&M fans, that year is holy. The year of the affair for cryin' out loud!

Well, he tried to leave Salem, but he got a little side tracked. ;)
