My early thoughts on this is that Steve is being insufferable and I'm not sure why Kayla is putting up with it.
They walked a very fine line with making Kayla determined, but not a doormat. In this section, they get a little too close to the doormat side. But that does get balanced out in the aftermath - particularly when Jack first shows up in town.
Oh, so Jack hasn't arrived at this point? Why is Jo being so cagey about Billy, then? I thought she met Harper and he threatened her into keeping quiet?
Well, I don't know exactly where you are, but Jack shows up after Adrienne remembers and gets Steve out of the charges. And I think Jo is being cagey because they are setting the anvils for Jack's arrival. The Harper thing was a retcon that makes no sense with anything surrounding Jack's initial arrival.

Okay, I'm not at that point yet.

I left off yesterday on clip 9 of the guilty plea story. Steve went over to Jo and Adrienne's and got uncomfortable when Adrienne wanted them to do something as a family. Adrienne pressed Jo to explain why she never seemed to want to find Billy. Jo claimed she didn't have a picture of Billy, but once Adrienne left, Jo took a picture of a baby out of its hiding spot.

Wait, never mind on that clip - I'm watching 9 again now and that's definitely not where I left off; I'll have to figure out which one I should be watching.

ETA - I left off on 8 B. Starting 8 C now, if you want to join in, Kriss.

Okay. I definitely think the stuff about Billy on those clips was supposed to be an anvil. Not that I recognized it at the time. I do love that Adrienne always had those rose-colored glasses about being a family though.

To esp13 - I may have just watched the end of clip 8 c, (where Steve and Kayla are crying and they both want to go to each other, but don't) more than once.

Oh, you got it bad now. :). I'm jumping to 9 to try and catch up.

Don't you appreciate how they can actually cry if need be?

Is the place where Adrienne and Kayla work the Riverfront Clinic? (clip 11).

Yep. I loved that place. It was totally a character in Steve and Kayla's story.

I really like the Steve/Adrienne relationship so far. Did they ever reach a point where he was fully comfortable with her?

Watching the credits on 12 - I didn't know Bo was ever a Kiriakis by name.

Oh yeah, things were much different with Steve and Adrienne as time went on. But she never lost the "my big brother is my hero" bit. Even during the second run it was there.

And I don't really remember Bo being called Kiriakis on the show either. Didn't realize he was listed that way on the credits.

Didn't he go "under cover" as Victors son?

I vaguely remember something about him pretending to embrace the Kirakis family & Hope hating it.

Where are y'all finding all the clips in order?

Also, Six, you've got to keep going until Steve rescues Kayla when she's being poisoned by Harper. I LOVED that whole storyline & it sets up the rape.

Yeah, Bo pretended to embrace the Kiriakis family during the Stockholm storyline. And he stayed at Victor's even after that. I just don't remember him being called Kiriakis even then. But my memory of the non S&k stuff during that time is a little suspect.

The clips are on YouTube. I can't link on my phone but search Steve and Kayla Guilty Plea and the playlist should come up.

Here you go, Soapy.

ETA - it's not showing up. I'll send it to you on twitter.

And yeah, I've realized that I have to see the rest of the story. I'm really enjoying the Johnsons as a whole.

I like that daydream Steve has two eyes.
I always loved that as well. I thought it was a great touch that in his fantasies, he saw himself as "whole" because it's a great way of showing that the loss of his eye never really stopped affecting him. I also loved that Steve's fantasies were romantic while Kayla's were very sexual. Just another way of keeping the characters from being stereotypes.
I especially loved the Lady In Red fantasy. :wub2:
This just happened. If you could see me, I'd look at you like this ^o)

Sixxers - I'm going to warn you that the Lady in Red fantasy is coming up at about clip 16 or 17 or so. Please, please, please do not let it affect your newfound appreciation for Steve and Kayla. It really wasn't their fault.

Also, as a bit of trivia, Stephen Nichols son Aaron played young Steve in the fauxback clips.

Oops, too late.

The Johnson family story is really good all the way through. It's always layered with all the complexities of their difficult and very different childhoods, how Jo's decisions affected all of them, and of course the lasting consequences of Steve/Kayla/Jack.

Don't worry, I expected the schmoop and I'm prepared to overlook it, since the story is really solid, otherwise. :)

I remember hearing about SN's son being on the show. Good choice since he looks exactly like a mini SN.

Phew. There is enough Velveeta in that clip to smother a city.

How far did you get, six? I've followed you to clip 11. Is that where you stopped? Or did you get to 12 or 13?
