Marlena finds comfort in Romanís arms.
NBC; want me to prove how this is nowhere near about Marlena getting comfort from someone, even a man? If you switch out "Roman" with Don, I would have jumped for joy. I realize it's been just the right amount of years for Fauxman to again attempt to get into Marlena's pants, but fuck off, there's a reason it never worked. And honestly, after this long of a time period, it wouldn't even work if you suddenly switched out the imposter with the real version.

Why on earth would Marlena have a heart to heart about her marriage problems with the guy who made no secrets about wanting her marriage to end throughout the last 10 years? Who's been trying to get her to sleep with him by making her feel sorry for him? Who used her loss of hope, pain, confusion and other affects of brainwashing to do just that. WHY. She could spill her heart's problems to Hope, Eric, Sami, Brady or hell, even the Maggster. I'd rather see her talk about John with Victor, because THAT would make more sense.

Rant over.

I guess what I am trying to say is when I watch any show, I have a sense of morality, and a sense of what is right and what is wrong and maybe that is the reason why there is not a lot on this show that I am enjoying and why their is hardly anyone to route for.
When I watch any show, I also have a sense of morality and a sense of what is right and what is wrong. I just don't expect nor do I care if the fictional characters on a TV show share my sense of morality. In fact, I prefer they don't.

Luke and Laura are on the cover as part of the 50th anniversary of General Hospital, not a tribute to them.
Right. So of all the couples to feature for GH's 50th anniversary, they pick L&L.

A tribute to them in their own right, no? I think that was the point.

Sidenote: I'm kicking myself for getting sucked into this again for the billionth time.
They were their signature couple, of course, but it was for General Hospital and not simply for L&L. That was my point.

Thank you! I recalled Abby being referred to as experienced, but then the virgin thing came up and quite frankly I wasn't so into Abby.

Maybe if Abby had a little action, she would behave a bit more mature and not like a child when someone kicks sand in their shoe. I love Abby, just not the last couple of weeks.

Not unless they are going to further defame Jack's memory and say he forced his underage daughter into porn. At this rate, with how they are disrespecting Jack's memory by having Jennifer and Abby worship Mr.Orange-Glo, I wouldn't be surprised!

I understand that you prefer they don't. What I am saying is that I can't switch off my understanding of what is right and what is wrong simply because I am watching a show. It's there, it is part of me and It plays a huge part in whether or not I route for a character or characters. Nobody is perfect, and I am not expecting perfection in the characters.

When EJ kidnapped Sydney and watched as Sami cried over the loss, I thought that was bad, but it was a story and I was watching to see what happened next. I did not have a problem when Sami found out what he did to her and retaliated by shooting him in the head. I was definitely not one of the people that was condemning her for doing so, because that was terrible what he did to her. Attempted murder was a little extreme but, I understood, when looking back at all he had done to her before that. He should not have been allowed to get away with what he did, so payback was fine. Where I have a problem with this EJ and Sami saga, is when these wirters are trying to tell me that these two love each other, after I and many others have witnessed all the things they have done to each other. That is not love, and it is wrong to overlook all these things and try and paint it as love. Not buying it, and never will. I hate seeing them together, even more than Daniel and Jennifer.

Nick is flawed but, I am definitely loving him in the Gabi/Will story. Sami I cannot stand. I hate her attitude, and her nastiness towards Gabi.

I also do not like it that the writers turn Brady , into such an idiot to tell their story. Do they have to turn one character into an idiot, in order for the other one to look smart. It spoils my enjoyment of the story. Most of my criticismn is aimed at the writers. They have some good actors on this show, and they are not utilising them properly.

^^There is no set definition on what is love. I and many others see what EJ and Sami have as love, true love even and it is no more right or wrong than what you define as love. Their love for each other manifested itself in many ways, took extremes bordering hate when they hurt each other, but never ever indifferent and most importantly, their love knows forgiveness of each other. When all the chips were down EJ turned to Sami and she to him and that is one powerful defining quality that they have :wub: The Rafes, Nicoles and Lucas have come and gone over the last seven years, but these two refuse to let go of each other in any capacity and I am thrilled that their sl is finally being told.

There is no judgement, no pedestals, no apologies; they are who they are and love each other more for it and next week the grey in them is given free reign for the good :applause:

What Sami and EJ has is not love. EJ especially does not love Sami and Sami does not love EJ. he has proved it over the years in his actions that he does not love her. The things he has done to her has nothing whatsoever to do with love. I for one cannot ignore them to buy into this pairing.

But obviously you love them so what more can I say.

^^Like I said, there is no absolute here and nothing makes your statement more right or wrong than mine. I mean wanting them with others such as EJ with Nicole the woman who he nearly choked to death does not influence the opinion right? Is that love?

EJ did not try to choke Nicole to death. I did watch the scene. Nothing remotely like that happened. How could he be choking her to death when there was no struggle and absolutely no bruises anywhere. But Sami did shoot EJ in the head. There was lots of blood, and she thought she killed him. Did she feel remorse after, no, but she went instead to her boyfriend at the time to have sex. And she certainly did not give EJ another thought when she was having sex with Rafe. Do you think that was love?


Also, I thought I would add. I don't particularly want EJ back with Nicole. They have to give them some good and believable writing for me to accept him back with her. I also like the fact that Nicole continues to want nothing to do with him.

Yes he did, and it is also not something up for debate, Nicole said so herself when it happened and she even talked about it as early as last year. I have no problem with love existing during darkness and manifesting as hate, but you cannot tell me that EJ loved Nicole even though he tried to kill her and Choking a Bitch was his favorite past time and then swear up and down that EJ and Sami cannot be love because of their ills against each other. There is a glaring double standard here IMO.

So there's ONE Marlena day and they waste it on that doofus posing as her second husband?
THIS. I'd rather see Kate consoling Marlena. Or rather yet, Marlena actually being allowed to share scenes with her HUSBAND, John.
This is so frustrating. Deidre and Drake never get to work together. The thought of a Roman and Marlena reunion of any kind literaly makes me ill. No way will I watch it. Thought they learned their lesson way back when when they had them sleep together with Marlena ending up pregnant. Fans were outraged then. What makes these writer think it will be any different now.

I think I remember Deidre in an interview during this time saying that she asked for a body double for those scenes She's a smart lady and knows what fans want. Would love to see her have some influence now, but sadly I don't think the writers care. For some reason they refuse to write for J&M and are determined to ruin soaps best super couple ever. They have been a constant since 1986.

Because that's worked so well for Sami? Nicole? Kate? Those three are total loose cannons at the drop of a hat .. .

Now Daniel gets drunk? How convenient for Chloe.
I am sooo looking forward to see if there is still passion between those two... So much better then watching him with Jenn...

Monday ("Rushing the Wedding")
Nick suggests to Gabi that they get married sooner than planned; Rafe and Kate get intimate.

Tuesday ("Questions")
Kate wants to know how Rafe feels about their relationship; Nick confides in Gabi about his time in jail.

Wednesday ("Getting Rid of Nick")
Vargas vows to get revenge on Nick; Nicole realizes that Chloe is using her.

Thursday ("Moving In")
Brady tells Victor and Maggie about his new living arrangements; Nancy arrives in Salem determined to help her daughter win Daniel's heart.

Friday ("Stefano Returns")
Stefano returns home; Nancy causes problems for Daniel and Jennifer; Chloe takes advantage of an intoxicated Daniel.

I am not seeing much to like about this show.

I now wish they had not brought Chloe back and I have no interest in her mum coming back on the show to help her scheme to get a man who is not interested in her. Although I find it unbelievable that he is not even shown tempted by Chloe, who is not only beautiful but a sexy woman. To me it is just demeaning to the character to have to take advantage of Dan when he is drunk because she was not getting any headway when he is sober.

I hate the fact that they are destroying another Nicole relationship, her friendship with Chloe. Now they have Chloe using her. They seem to like to destroy anything that is good, especially when it comes to Nicole.

I hate the idea of Eric being a priest, especially if they want something to happen between him and Nicole. It is not much that he can do, so I guess all the fantasising will be left to Nicole. I also hate the fact that she is the one saying that she loves him first. We just had her going on about loving Daniel when he had no interest in her.

I also cannot believe that they will have Brady moving into the Dimera Mansion. What good reason could they possible have for him moving in with Stefano, because he is in love. They really have taken away his brains.

There is really not much, I am liking about the show. I am not really enjoying any of the stories. I enjoy some performances, but the stories are not really good, or seem to be going anywhere. It's just seems like plots on top of plots and, they have turned many into brainless idiots in order to tell them. Chloe is there to cause trouble for Dannifer but not to win out in the end, but in the meanwhile they just have her going from one devious scheme to the next. Personally, I would have rathered a story where Daniel ended it with Jennifer simply because they are so painfully boring as a pairing, and Daniel was the one chasing Chloe, and Chloe giving him an extremely hard time of it.

I hate the way they are writing most of the females on the show and most of the men are not fairing much better. I am definatley not a fan of TomSell's writing or should I say, Ideas.

I couldnt agree more, Jennifer and Daniel are horrible together and oh so boring... if your going to pair him with some one... at least make it hot and sexy not old and boring
