Til Offscreen Contrivance Do Us ‘Part

Marlena to Hope: When we found out that your and John’s divorce was finalized and that we could get remarried…

Way to bury the lead, show! It’s not like we were forced to endure an incoherent three-month arc about John and Hope being married or anything. I get that the current writers probably couldn’t come up with any kind of plausible way to undo that marriage after the previous regime set up all that insane draconian Alamainia crap, but taking advantage of the time Stefano was “dead” might have worked. Or, I don’t know, talking about it even a little bit ever sometime in the past six months.

On the plus side: I’m kind of hoping we get a John/Marlena re-marriage where Kristen busts up the ceremony. On the downside: Are Bo and Hope going to get remarried offscreen?!

    I’M BEYOND OFFENDED. Why does this show constantly invent new ways to be idiotic? Marlena didn’t give a fuck about getting remarried for the past few months, otherwise, you’d think that Kristen would have interrupted their HONEYMOON on Smith Island instead of some damn weekend getaway.

    And speaking of Smith Island and the ferry that never comes, do you think Bo is just on the island and keeps missing the boat?

      Maybe Bo is piloting the ferry now!

      And I’m honestly so furious about this nonsense. I get that the prior regime set up a pretty ridiculous situation — that John and Hope would HAVE TO be in Alamainia for weeks in order to secure the divorce — but with Stefano’s “death” and the DiMera rift, there were so many loopholes. Maybe Ian screwed up Stefano’s plans and let the divorce go through. Maybe Stefano being “dead” meant he couldn’t bribe the authorities at the right time. Maybe EJ helped clear it up as a show of good faith because he’s angry at Stefano. I just wrote three better resolutions, and I’m just sitting on my couch in sweatpants!

    what else is moldy? they ALWAYS let situations come, die out forever then bring them back after we haven’t heard anything about them for…..well….ever.
    …..they are together, they are not together, they have tremors, they do not have tremors,they are dead, they are not dead, they are married, they are not married, they are pregnant, they……shoot me now.
    kinda OFF topic but what makes me nutszoid is the people on the show that have jobs, but you never see them doing/at the job, or they end up with a shit load of money, then all of a sudden, they have to go move in with someone else because they are broke…i could SO go on but,i have to drive myself insane watching the last 2 episodes i taped and have NOT watched…..
