Please do not go ape shit on me.... but I am curious, am I the ONLY Days fan that absolutely can not stand John and/or Marlena and wishes that would just go away?

There has to be at least one other closet Jarlena hater out there.

I dont hate them as a "super couple"... I hate them each individually (and therefore, yes, as a couple too).
I love Marlena, find John to be "meh" and thought he was much hotter with Kate. Bring on the tomatoes!

Jennifer confides in Maggie too much. Jennifer needs to stop it. Keep Maggie out of her business.
if Jen feels the need to confide in someone, she should confide in someone that's not her boyfriend's mother, even if she was her aunt before she was his mother. Jen should be confiding in someone like Hope, or Billie.
Or Julie. :smile:

John/Marlena scenes were ridiculous. :rolleyes:

I hope they find something more interesting for Kristen.

My big issue right now is that you have the Nick/Gabi/Will episodes that feel SO cohesive and then you have the everything else episodes with Marlena/John/Kristen/Brady, Nicole/Eric, Chloe/Daniel/Jennifer, etc. I need these stories to cross over more. Also, I think Kristen is being wasted by simply having her only in this one story. IMO, Kristen needs to decide to subtly secretly "mentor" Nick on how to take Will's baby away as a means of sticking it to Marlena some more.

He didnt break up with her,but he did pretty much walk out,zero emotion about it too.The John Black I know and love would fight for his marriage,not leave town.These writers don't know a damn thing about any character on the show.

No. They need to bring back the real John.

I agree - I would argue more people need to be more involved with Sami in the Will story (wink, wink - I won't go there again), but Marlena is certainly one of them. That is what makes the Wabi s/line so compelling, one of the reasons anyway - is that it is indeed cohesive and involves many characters. Reminds me of when I started watching Days, and the cast seemed so much more integrated, and as a result of the world of Salem seems much more expansive. But anyway, yeah, I hope we see Marlena in more Will and Sami scenes - she would be used very well there.

I was rather bored by the Jarlena scenes - John just came off as dickish to me.

ETA: lol, I wrote the world of Sami rather than the world of Salem. LOL, that must because it has SEEMED like the world of only Sami for so long ;)

I'm not a fan either. In their earlier days I did like them but now ehhhhhhhh. I think Drake is a horrible actor and when they kiss it looks like they are sucking each other's face off. It's gross and turns me off.

Eric finally was abit interesting today when he ripped off his collar and told off Brady. Brady is such a pathetic idiot.

I haven't seen that person in a long time. Even before Kristen returned.

Wow, my eyes must have glazed over from the John and Marlena overacting, I didn't see Eric and Brady pulling off of collars and throwing chairs.

I must rewatch. It was probably the only interesting thing that happened.

No tomatoes from me. I loved John and Kate.

I also loved RoboJohn and I'd much rather have had him return than the John and Marlena version.

Maybe, but I recall Sami telling will to go talk to someone and rattled off a list of names, including Marlena.

Yes, and Yes. Kristen's being wasted on J&M.

This! A thousand times this!
Marlena is a wonderful person to have as a support- and being Will's grandmother the writers should really delve into that. Kate too for that matter.

I've always loved Marlena much more than John, and when John died in 2007 I truly was heartbroken, but LOVED seeing feisty Marlena..

and Kate...we've had no interaction from her at all in the Wabi baby story..none and that is just wrong and strange....if her upcoming story doesn't include a bit of mixing it up with that story then I'd be really disappointed.

I loved Eric today... then again I have enjoyed it recently when anyone has ripped Brady a new one!

I totally agree they are wasting Kristen by having her involved in only the one story. She should be sprinkling her wickedness subtly around town causing all kinds of wrinkles for Marlena and John's family. Ej is neutered so lets has some more fun with Kristen.

I'm tired of Maggie being overused in Jennifer and Daniel's story. Bring in Hope for a new voice once in awhile.

Father Matt!

Good cliffhanger with Nicole. I want to know what her plan is.

Brady and Eric were a good time. Love the battling bros and Eric yanking off the collar.

John is just an idiot. Marlena should be smacking him rather than throwing her arms around him crying.

Kate's absence is particularly jarring when she is fighting Chloe for access to Parker.
