So was Liz involved with Neil, then Don, then forced to be with Tony?

The show seemed to have a lot of big supervillains at this time forcing people into relationships. I guess only one stood the test of time.

It must have been strange for viewers to see a recast David and Val talking about their history. I guess this was her only story? Did Stuart manage to ruin her?

When Pat Falken Smith took over,she turned the resident sinister powerful man in town - Stuart-into an associate of the new villian-Stefano. Once Joe Mascolo was cast,Stuart was phased out quickly.Liz became Tony's ex wife, Lee his ex mistress and Renee his daughter.

it was a successful revamp that quickly integrated the Di Mera's. Unfortunately,Smith left after a few months and not many of her original plans were followed through.

I loved the Liz-Neil-Don-Marie-Alex-Tony roundelay. Throw in Ann-Marie Martin's Gwen, I thought she was great, too. Falken-Smith really revitalized the show. I just wish subsequent writers had followed through on her vision of Stephano being obsessed with Julie (not Marlena). I think the next 25 years would have been very different in Salem!

Thanks for the corrections about Evan and Stuart. I guess it shows how writing and the proper part are key. Lane Davies has been on three soaps but the only one he ever seemed to click on was Santa Barbara. When you were watching at the time did you care for him?

I wish DAYS could bring Alex back, along with Marie, while Maree and Quinn are still acting. I think there's good story to still be mined. I know he acted with Launa Sanders, but Maree's a good actress. Although I'm sure Launa is too -- I haven't watched a lot of her work as Marie.

It's interesting when I read some of the old Digests and see that he was involved with Deirdre Hall for a while. Didn't someone say they hinted at pairing them up on the show.

I thought Lanna was terrific as Marie.She managed to make whatever was thrown at her work-and there was alot.Leaving the convent,re-uniting with her daughter,dealing with the constant rewrites of the Alex character,the romance with Neil etc.

I think I read that Lanna was in early stages of MS when she left the show.

I know it has been posted before but some of Smith's plans included

Stefano's obsession with Julie would lead to a fake break up by Doug and Julie in order to uncover Stefano's schemes.That would lead to many romantic ,secret meetings between Doug and Julie.

More Di Mera siblings,including a sister,Vanessa,who would become involved with Mike.

A teen romance between Melissa and Marcus Brady

The return of Ed Mallory as Bill.

Smith hated the Maggie surrogacy story.

Abe and Val romance

It looked as if Days would be a fast paced romantic show with a touch of mystery and a definite honouring of the past..
