uh oh. Roman's first appearance in how long and he's comforting Marlena? :ermm: Just kidding. He's going back into the closet when their one scene is over.
looks like Kristen is trying to get all of the Dimeras back into the mansion. Next up, EJ?
Speaking of EJ, I LOVE that Sami tells him that she wants Nick gone. Please put those words into action!
This is so funny because just today I overheard someone say, "I hope EJ kicks the shit out of Nick!" Thought they must be watching DOOL.

After Creamed SPinach Mouth offers Marlena some comforting garbled mess meant to be words, can he please get hit by a train?
Can you please listen to Lil, show? Please? It's for the good of everybody and the disappointment of no one.
I would be disappointed.I like Josh Taylor as Roman.

OMG, that's so not true.

It wouldn't be Days for me without a once in a while scene with Josh Taylor. I might be the only one but...I don't want him gone.

As far as story, I can't say I feel much either way about this since I wasn't ever a fan of Marlena or John.

You are not alone.I like Josh Taylor as Roman and would miss him if he was recast,left Salem,or was killed off.

I don't mind Josh Taylor, either. I miss the Chris Kosochek days, but I don't mind him.

I would Love to see Marlena and Roman/Chris get together. I have never cared for John. He acts like a Clint Eastwood wannabe!
Yeah, Marlena had one kiss with Chris and went RUNNING to John, so that'll never happen.

I'd rather see Marlena become BFFs with EJ before having a conversation with Fauxman. His entire existence has basically been trying to get in her pants, and that's not what friends do.

Exactly. He's an asshole. Last time he tried to "comfort" Marlena over anything we got....Melaswen. He has never been about trying to be her friend. He always has an alterior motive. Which is to get in her pants. The only time he's been halfway tolerable was when he was with Kate. Otherwise, he's repulsive.

I've been watching the show on a daily basis for the last four years and I have never seen Roman direct any romantic behavior toward Marlena during that time.What did I miss.I think the last time I saw anything between then was the time she was pregnant then fell down the stairs causing her to lose the baby although I can't remember the year that happened.

I think his biggest fault is he's not Wayne Northrop. He's not the world's greatest actor, but you're right. it's been a long time since he's done that. That was the JER days. Writers change, and with that, character personalities. That being said, if he goes after Marlena, well..........John and Marlena always need some angst, right?

I don't understand why some think Sami is going to win over Nick outright. I get that she has EJ in her pocket, but between the two of them their schemes have the same success rate as Dr. Doofenschmirtz from Phineas and Ferb. Nick may undo himself, but I am pretty sure even if they seem to win it will blow up in their faces.

I agree- I actually like Josh Taylor as Roman, too. Of course, that's likely due to the fact that he's the Roman I grew up with. In recent years, Josh Taylor seems to have gotten far less airtime than he did the first several years after he returned, and I kind of miss him.

Then, seriously... send EJ, Nick, Rafe, Chad, Victor or Stefano (preferably him) after Marlena so John has to fight for her. Just... not him. DH has chemistry with anything that walks, except JT.

He's just not Roman. And they keep trying to play on "Oh, Roman never got over Marlena" and he's all moony faced about it... but it doesn't work. First of all, who believes Marlena actually fell in love with that dude? And I'm not talking about looks, I'm talking about this character. The three loves in Marlena's life have ALL had one thing in common... they know how smart she is and they don't back down from a fight. This dude just follows her around and does whatever she asks. Don, Roman and John... do not. It's something that was attractive in all of them. Hell, even Richard had that trait, sort of. Second of all, Josh Taylor and Deidre Hall, do not have any chemistry. None whatsoever. And that pains me, because they do have scenes and I watch her scenes, so believe me, I wish they had some. It made that weak attempt to do some Mike/Marlena tolerable in 1994, it made Craig/Marlena work as friends eventually (despite what he and Nancy did to Carrie and Mike), it's what makes it enjoyable to watch Bo/Marlena despite how badly he treated her in 2000/2001.

And again, it ain't personal, because I've heard nothing but nice things about Josh, and it's not his fault he was miscast.

The only Roman I want near Marlena is if Drake takes over the role again. That would be powerful!

ITA and they don't even need a platypus. The only thing Sami can do is terrorize Gabi and the baby. EJ has not done any plotting really for years, the Rafe cloning was due to Stefano. At this point all EJ can do is recommend a shade of eyeshadow or blush for Nick, hardly a formidable opponent unless he is going to his father for help. EJ is a non-issue in this, he is just there as a prop for Sami.

Since they are not going to be romantic partners,I don't really need chemistry between Roman and Marlena.I found JT to be acceptable during the safe house junk with Carrie and the others,in the scenes with AS,CM,GG,and JS during the Stefano murder thing,with PR,MBE,PM when they were trying to figure out the situation with Caroline's mental deterioration,with DH when Eric first returned to Salem,Thursday when Eric was hurt,and his occasional scenes with LK.Given JT's limited time on screen, the fact that I was not watching that often while Wayne Northrup was onscreen as Roman,the liklihood of Wayne Northrup returning to Days,I don't have a problem with JT remaining on the show and interacting with other characters as Roman.Just as a matter of curiosity,how long did Wayne Northrup play Roman and how long has Josh Taylor has played Roman?I also only have a vague recollection of Chris Kosticek.How as Josh Taylor as Chris?

And that's why he doesn't bother me. It is what it is, and after more than a decade, it's not going to change. But then again, I'm not heavily invested in the Marlena/John history, either. I still want Marlena with Don Craig :P
