YAY! Hopefully we'll get some clues about his scenes with Brady & Hope when the new set of spoilers start arriving mid-week.

I'm glad he's back, I just wish we had any inkling on whether the writers will fuck up his return or actually do something smart & have a Jarlena reunion after some angst, conversation, etc - the whole kit & caboodle, as it were. I'm starting to lose hope here!!

Yeah. I am not here for the writers breaking them up, pairing them with others, or writing either of them
out of character. In any order.

I really don't think they would bring John back to pair John and Marlena with other people. John is just not worth it at this point after the way he exited. I think the plan is to reunite them eventually, I just hope the story is decent and not like once or twice a month. I'm hoping that people are just not mentioning Drake or tweeting about him because its like he has only been there three times since he returned.

I just hope Drake actually shows up on March 4th when John does, because he was just sorry last time he was onscreen.

I agree about his performances and I'm not excusing his lack of enthusiasm, but I absolutely blame the writers because that entire storyline - including Kristen's return - was absolute tripe. :flipoff:

You said "eventually" - I am completely HERE for the storyline - gimme it - all of it. From angst & arguing, throwing pillows in frustration, yelling, screaming, sniping, bickering, accusing...fantasies, forgiveness, realizations...give it all the words you want and I'll sit down and savor every morsel of it like a beagle on a bagel (trust me...they love em).

I'll watch Days - I'm no "fair weather fan", but John & Marlena remind me of my parents...they've been through a LOT, but through it all, never lost what brought them together. Does that make me a pathetic, romantic sap? :wub2: Probably - and I can live with that. :peace:

Normally, I could get behind blaming the writers. But Drake was actually okay in the scenes that were the most OOC (the ones with Kristen). It was the other stuff that he slept through.

Nah, I'm serious. John did enough already for Marlena to just move on if they wanted her to. No one could blame her for moving on without John if he just never came back.

And those were the scenes nobody wanted to see.

I don't think they're invested enough in either of them to bring in other people for them, lol.

lol That's the bigger reason. But John serves no purpose unless they were going to reunite John and Marlena. He has already been butchered enough to where they could have just moved her on with someone else. They aren't invested in John AT ALL.

i'm sorta "meh" on him being back. They so mangled his part in the story last year and his acting was rather bad that I'm not sure how they'll recover him.

I'm not too excited about this because the way his acting was with the Kristen stuff. He phoned in most of his scenes; even if he didn't like the writing it is his job as an actor and act. Hopefully he is bearable to watch this time around.

I may be wrong but I think he didn't give much effort in his scenes not because (or at least not only because) he didn't like the writing but because he was pissed that TPTB decided to terminate his contract.

No, they just said who they were not, so that Brady and Theresa could hook-up. (Or at least I don't remember them exploring that topic further).

Welcome back John Black (Drake Hogestyn):)) They better be invested because these two Veteran Actors have the largest fan base that drawls people to watch. They are two of the most well loved characters, have been at the top of the weekly fan poll for over 100 weeks, she has over 105,000 and growing face book followers and all the actors and actresses that come on the show can't wait to work with these two top notch pro vets. They also had the longest line at the Universal Fan Fest this past Fall.
