It's An Invasion!
If you were to ask me what I would suggest doing to give Days of Our Lives a much needed burst of energy, I'd probably suggest stranding Belle and Shawn on the island of misfit toys forever and taking John out of the coma (if only to give us the eyebrow we've been deprived of for so long!) and banning the word "hairbrush" and giving Steve a normal brain and letting go of the idea that Max is some sort of studly sex god...
But, you know, bringing back all of the freaking DiMeras could be the answer also. Provided that they leave behind their weirdo supernatural Melaswen unfrozen undead pinata stuffed brand of evil. Cold and calculating evil is fine, though!
And Leann Hunley?!?!? Awesome. I'm very excited about that, although I feel sort of badly for her now that Roman is played by Josh Taylor. Pacey Witter to the monotone bag of Botox? Downgrade!
