This is another one of Drake's weird tweets. It's from 5 days ago but I'm just now seeing it.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
This would give me hope that the storyline is progressing to the point where it actually seems dangerous and has high stakes. If we didn't just see a bunch of pics of everyone basically partying for the Christening or whatever is going on right now. Damnit! It would have been nice to pretend Marlena was in some kind of danger and Kristen was really kicking into high gear.
I think he is referring to what's airing right now. "Mom can't help right now" means that will be the explaination for why John is pushing Marlena away currently --- he is trying to protect her.

I HIGHLY doubt that is what is being currently filmed. It won't go into August. I'm pretty sure the John/Marlena/Brady/Kristen crap ends by May sweeps...but I can't tell if Kristen gets caught via the mugger, or if she stops things on her own. EM seemed to hint that Kristen just drops plans for revenge because she falls in love with Brady...which would be the best scenario.
All I have to say is I agree with Lysie on this one.....

IF this is "Days of Our Lives", there needs to be some sort of dangerous plot here, or what was the point of bringing ED back. Even though I LOVE her, it is just beneath her to go after Brady. She may be having issues with revenge, but the REAL Kristen will quickly put aside her conscience and go for the jugular. Otherwise, what was the point?
Well, maybe their goal is to rehabilitate or at least de-fang the DiMeras and turn them into just another wealthy Midwestern family who all live alongside with -- and interact with -- the likes of the Bradys and the Hortons. That certainly seems to be what's happening.

Imo, Nick (a Horton) is being painted as more of a villain these days than any of the DiMeras -- including Kristen. Heck, even Chloe is portrayed as a virago in comparison.

Defanged DiMera's? No offense, it could be where they're trying to take this...but the DiMera's were, are, and always should be evil bastards. EJ as a "nice guy" is as dull as dishwater and sorry, but Kritter will always be the scheming hosebeast that locked Marlena in a secret room then tried to give her to Fatha. Tony was a nice DiMera as was Lexie, but they could both get in touch with their inner bad-asses when they needed to. In my never-to-be-humble opinion, they need to kill off EJ, and send Kritter back to the looney bin. Then have Melanie get in touch with Chad because she wants to try to work things out...he gets his hopes up sky-high and minutes before their reunion, she is killed. Chad SNAPS and goes completely frickin insane, turning the coffeehouse into a front for stolen electronics and forged clothing/purses/etc (that could touch on Basic Black as well as Titan). Then Thaao Penglis (sp?) comes back as Vladimir - Tony & Andre's long lost other cousin (twin? Whichever) to try to take over the DiMera empire. Am I off on a tangent here? Probably - the coffee is starting to do it's job.

Meh. Saw someone already posted what I wrote about so deleting it.

I just hope she doesn't come on for Rafe! I kinda like Rafe now, but I would much rather see her with Lucas. At least its not Daniel or Brady, which would have been worst case scenarios.

I do think the Dimeras have been defanged. Back in the day, they were responsible for the most diabolical activities to ever happen in Salem. Now I can't say that. I won't speak about EJ since I think he's the biggest p*ussy of them all right now, but Kristen? It's like the writers are caught between wanting to give Brady a romance and Kristen exacting revenge on John and the romance is winning by a mile or three (it should be the latter truthfully speaking). This show is in desperate need of a villain, a true super villain like the Stefano, Victor, Vivian, Kate, Lawrence, Peter, cray cray Kristen even black glove EJ of old (I'm not familiar with anyone else) because Nick and Chloe ain't cutting it for me not because they suck as villains but because they should be the good guys in different s/ls while the bad guys should actually be B.A.D. not these watered down versions desperately clinging to a man or woman whatever the case may be because it's the ONLY thing that matters. No one is rootworthy because they all look the same and are doing pretty much exactly the same things except for Nick and Chloe and John but only because his ooc behavior is so wtf?

What this show has had? = Cartoon villains Good VS Evil, etc. This does not work today! Villains or so-called anti-heros are very popular among today's TV viewers and Stefano, EJ and Kristen are very popular, I actually think many want to see them doing shady things but still have a functioning passionate relationship with a partner etc and maybe the problem is that the so-called good characters are boring?

I don't think the DiMeras are interesting. I think the writing for them -- EJ especially -- is incoherent.

None of them are anti-heroes.

I agree. The show is trying to have its cake and eat it too with all of its villains the last few years, and it just doesn't work. If they don't want good vs evil, then they need to stop writing those stories. You can't keep having characters do cartoon villain things and then have them hanging out with the rest of the town in a coffee shop like nothing ever happened.

I agree Lucas is the best scenario....but if not him, then Rafe is the NEXT best option. He hasn't had a real love interest outside Sami in 3 yeas.

All I know is that I do NOT NOT NOT want it to be Brady. So if sticking her with Rafe -- or in a triangle with Rafe --- keeps her away from Brady than go for it. EM already has something that's working for him, chemistry-wise. The last thing this show needs is another attempted Arianna/Madison failure. If it ain't broke (EM/ED's chemistry) then don't try to fix it.

Rafe, on the other hand? Out of the 4 in his age range (Daniel, Brady, Eric, Rafe), he is the most in need of a legitimate, new pairing. Especially after Sami.

Of course, I would rather it be for Lucas...but if my options are only Rafe, Eric, Brady, or Daniel? It's Rafe all the way. With a defrocked Eric being second.

But NO to Brady or Daniel.

Please no. We were lucky enough to get rid of Carrie the last time, but if she comes back, she might stay for good.

Snow is a four-letter word. Please filter it.

Why isn't John a possible candidate? After all a) they've very purposely destroyed J&M, b) Drake tweeted about not understanding his character's choices and was about to do something he completely didn't understand - which IMO would be sleeping with someone else...and the timing of that tweet and the appearance of a new character is in line and c) they seem to be keen on doing May/Dec relationships at the moment (hence Rate) and finally d) he's the only one who has had an injury (as of right now) that would require a physical therapist.

If they hook John up with new young twenty something physiotherapist. There is no way you can convince me that they aren't purposely tanking this show.

This show really does need a little more evil deeds and intrigue in it. It's like when Dena Higley was in charge and the show was very dark (or violent)... and everyone was saying it was way too dark. Well it's like instead of lightning things up a little, they the darkness out all together!

It's like really if Kristen is going to come back and not do anything ruthless and "evil", what was the point??? :shrug:

Okay, I can see your points...the DiMera days of "Lady in a Cage", "The Pillow Baby" are over the top for todays viewers. Still, watering them down makes them boring - I won't apologize for thinking EJ is a ball-less, purse-carrying, lipstick naming schlub right now - he's more fun when he's in touch with his dark-side and with Sami, he's a snooze. There's no conflict when they all get along & have coffee in the town square, coffeeshop, pub, and everywhere else. Nick as a bad guy? He's a jerk, he's not devious. My thought is that this show needs a dark underbelly - the Kiriakis' served that end once upon a time as well as the DiMera's. I can't really see Justin going all bad-ass on anyone. But Chad? Yeah - I think he might be able to pull it off if something life-changing happened to him. Feel free to hate me all you want, EJ/Sami fans - I have nothing at all against James Scott nor Ali Sweeney, but I just don't like them as a couple. He's better with Ari and Ali is better with Galen. Feel free to chuck rotten tomatoes as I duck behind my desk. :laugh:

All the DiMera's at this point are so defanged it's not even funny. Honestly, they should just write one of Stefano's five (seemingly deceased) brother's into the show as the super evil bad guy or whatever. I wouldn't mind seeing a whole other side of the DiMera clan.
