  1. The Ej/Sami scenes with the Ej's deception revealed were powerful but Rafe as the one who came with the truth was lackluster..i don't know the actor just doesn't bring it (GG is a pretty guy, and there are lot's of other pretty guys on soaps so what.. and his acting is so wooden..)
    And why not having lot's of people during the revelation like when Kristen was discovered..i mean it should be a big event come on it is Daytime drama for pete's sake ! It was the same thing in November last year with Nicole..i mean the Sami/Nicole and Nicole/Ej scenes were powerful but it should have been with all the other players of the storyline like Mia, Chad, Brady ect...However the Baby-switch was better written, the build up had more layers and more slow (ok maybe too slow i really wanted it to end lol)..The Sydnapping story was so rushed with a Sami who pinned all the summer for Rafe while using love sick Ej so you can't really feel sorry for Sami and cheer for Ej's downfall..actually i feel more sorry for Ej than Sami..he appears human to me whereas Sami seems cold hearted..i don't think it was the writers's goal..too and this week is even worse..Ej becomes the victim and Sami the monster.
    The other stories..well..boring..Vivian is a great character but a buried alive story again..the first was good because the writing team was more a remake by this awful regime is a bad idea..really bad idea..
    The twist with the "who swich the paternity tests" in the Danloe story is quite intriguing but not enough to make the story it still bores me..also the characters on this story don't have a real spark..
    Bo and Hope story..well it is really really bad written..Hope's reasons for her Night time Hope arc seem so weak; you can't really empathise with her and to prop Bope tru wub they seem to destroy little by little the Bo and Carly relationship (and i like Bope as much as i am not biased)..this writing is so one-sided and simplistic..Hope the is getting really old..this writers regime write women as needy, helpless, weak who need to be saved by is really insulting so no wonder viewers don't watch..
    Ah and i like Victor and Maggie interactions, they are cute, the actors work well together but Maggie's feelings for Victor doesn't make really sense (i mean lot's of people are against Ejami as a couple because of the things they did (or do lol) to each other but Victor tried to kill Maggie's daughter !! lol

  2. Bringing back favs is good, but if they are not used properly fans will tune out again. People are looking forward to Missy returning, but most polls state they want Matt back, and many said they would not be interested in Jennifer with someone else, and want her more than a prop to repair Bo/Hope.

    I think people fear the same thing about Mary Beth returning they do not want her just to be some prop in the Bo/Hope reunion.

    The show has to be more like the 80s or else the ratings will continue to fall, especially now with winter.

  3. "I think people fear the same thing about Mary Beth returning they do not want her just to be some prop in the Bo/Hope reunion."

    I think Jennifer is the main prop in the Bope reunion. Mary Beth will probably be a prop in the Stephanie story.

  4. When is Corday going to buy a clue and get rid of Higley, Tomlin and Whitesell ???? He is fast running out of time and options !!!

  5. Maybe they're planing a Jennifer-Bo love connection. Imagine the fans uproar and Hope's anger of catching them in bed? LOL!

    It seems like the writers want Bo to be damage good for Hope.

  6. Langan had planned that. Remember Bo was the one who found Jennifer living in Ireland as a barmaid, and they returned to Salem on the rickety small boat. I remember SOD with a cover of the two of them. Hmm, if that happens I do not want Jack with Jennifer ever.

    Maybe Megan Hathoway will return from the grave. Bo seems to go after all his screwed up exes.

    Okay, thanks for the correction about Mary Beth, I knew she would be a prop. Hey maybe she will be lucky and prop both Bope and Stephanie.

  7. Jennifer is getting to be the Bope prop this time around "yay"
