I think the Possession is where the show decided Jarlena endgame. I think it was full on Kristen/John until then and the network wanted Drake to be with someone younger. I think Kristen and John were just not that popular until she went bat [!@#$%^&*] and Jarlena have a very strong fanbase that just won out. And the Possession wouldn't have worked if John wasn't crazy in love with Marlena.
Does this really count as a continuity error? It certainly is one of the most famous "haircut without permission" but while I obviously wasn't watching at the time, watching these scenes now in isolation feels like it was well-explained and her character's motives seemed like they made sense. I dunno what the overall context and storyline was obviously but it looks like the writing clean-up did a decent job at explaining it, no?
Thank you! I actually love the short hair on her - better than on Rena.
Its getting better, i uploaded episodes 1248-1257 many days ago.
But because of work and co i didnt manage to find time to record the following episodes.
For now, i am 34 episodes behind, because videoland is at episode 1290
I binged Mansion of the Damned a few months ago. What struck me for the first time was the sheer brilliance of Slesar's storytelling: 2 major characters only meet once or twice early in the story (during the Paige drama). After that, they don't meet again until much deeper in the story, which was the only way the 'trick' could've been pulled off plausibly.
It wasn't overtly discussed until the story's conclusion. What's crazier is that based on the underlying story those two characters should've had major run-ins/confrontations constantly. Slesar was a genius.
