Seeing Ashley Abbott leave Genoa City will be sad. But it also makes room for an opportunity. An opportunity to Days of our Lives to cash in and bring Eileen Davidson back to Salem in any one of the characters she created during her tenure on Days of our Lives in the 1990’s.
Of all the love interests thrown at RoJo (Roman/John), only Kristen Blake, Stefano’s adopted daughter, successfully competed against Marlena for John’s affection. Diana Colville, RoJo’s love interest during the John’s Roman years never shared the canvas with Marlena because she was presumed dead. Isabella Black did for a short time, but her relationship with Roman was “saved” when he turned out to be John Black, and not Roman. Before John and Isabella’s relationship could be tested Isabella was turned into a tragic figure dying of cancer.
Of course watching Kristen Blake, Stefano’s adopted daughter return to be doted on by Stefano would just highlight once more the hypocrisy of Stefano freezing out EJ because he is not his blood son.
Seeing Eileen Davidson return as Kristen and cause some trouble in John and Marlena’s life would be a welcome respite from the another rehash of the Pawn and Princess Gina saga. But it would take some clever writing.
