Some people could have stayed dead in Melaswen. Sigh. That story was all over the place.

Charity Rahmer! Lol I had forgotten just how bad her scenes actually were. I am in SHOCK that they hired her to play Belle. Although, if she screen tested with Kyle Brandt, I could see why. It's not like he was anything special either.

Kyle Brandt wasn't *horrible*, I just didn't like him b/c he didn't have the same charm or bad boy image that JKJ has. KB was more, stupid-buff-guy than he was smart-cunning-sly-hot-guy.

No. So that happens in the castle, which happens after they get off Melaswen Island.

I agree... he wasn't bad for Days, he just wasn't Philip Kiriakis.

I think it had to do with the Underground Railroad. I wish I were joking.

Any clips of Rotox coming onto/comforting Marlena make me irrationally angry.

Sorry, but in my mind this is when the show began a disturbing downward spiral that took them years to get over. The Salem Stalker storyline was so brilliantly told for the first nine months, and then once characters began to pop up in Melaswen, it became too absurd. The show never recovered from the prepostorous explanation and the ratings reflected that. I still feel as though we never got the full story on whether portions of the story were rewritten at the last minute. But having Tony (later "Andre") responsible made absolutely no sense. But I still have fond memories of the original murders, atleast.

Really, looking at the cast today, who died during SSk that we would really miss now? Think about it.

There are very few universal truths, one of them is the awfulness of Charity Rahmer.

Darn it, I miss Jack so much.

I've been saying this for years. Considering how they've been used since then, it wouldn't have made a bit of difference

I agree. I think we know it was rewritten, we just don't know the original story. But this is a classic example of Corday panicking and everything ending up in a giant pool of WTFery. I'd still take this over today's show though.
