Oh man, my heart goes out to her and her family. I'm glad she's expected to completely recover.
I'm happy DAYS brought her back. She's not Eve, but she's a damn good actress and the DAYS fans more or less accepted her because of it. So I'm glad they are apparently keeping her long-term (until the 2017 Plan to Save Days when it's wash/rinse/repeat). They missed the boat on Eve/Justin/Eduardo. IMO they also missed the boat on Justin working with Kate.
I'm still waiting for Greg Vaughan's return but I bet that ship has sailed.
And Martha/Brandon were brought back but I don't know if it's just to fill out their contracts or if they're being kept. I haven't kept up with the rumor mill much lately and the show films sixteen thousand years ahead ...
I have to admit I'm already sick of hearing "Uncle Vic" from Sonny and it's been like a couple of episodes that he's been on. It's been nice not seeing Hope's face.
The balance is trash. One day is Jennifer holed up in the hotel, the next is the anticlimatic ending to the kidnapping and then we're back to the people who were on the day before.
This show. My show is such a mess and totally directionless. Nothing matters. There's no stakes. At least Griffith killed Daniel and had Eric go away to prison. Stakes. I hated them, but still.
And I'm so over Maggie sobbing.
Overtime I've grown to like Jennifer, Maggie and Hope so much less than I used to. I used to love all of them. Now? Blech. Jennifer's not as bad anymore and having Matt Ashford/Jack around has helped. What we saw in the hotel room is what we should have been getting for the entire storyline. Not to mention the Eric angle. Anything promising gets forgotten or dropped. It sucks.
/ aimless rant over ....
Aww. Claire and Theo
Ciara and Chad would actually work a little better if she wasn't becoming Thomas's mother and Chad's insta-wife. I'm not saying they'd work if they are paired together. I don't want that. But the story itself would be better if the actress playing Ciara didn't still suck a year later.
Nice that Jennifer's pill addiction gets airtime now that it's over but always nice to see Matt Ashford/Jack! It makes me so sad we had 8 years of Orange Glow and this man sits on the sidelines.
I like Belle and Chad as friends. But ugh, here comes Ciara, thirsting for him. Please. Save the "tears" honey. And poor Theo clearly still wants her as she's crying over Chad. Can we just focus on Claire please? God, Ciara was so annoyingly defensive with Belle. Damn girl. Down. Belle should have slapped her. Can we stop with this agenda?
It was another snoozefest. I turned it off halfway through and deleted the episode. You know Higs is back in the house when Nicole is back up Maggie's behind and involved in the Brady/Tate story. (I know Higs/Quan stuff doesn't start until Sept 6 or something but still, the shift is always obvious to me)
This article appears a little late to the party but claims the same that Raven/Paula are being phased out. Um. Duh. And it's funny how much this show gets talked about when it's not really all that buzzworthy. It's always "this co-host and that co-host" and I don't think the drama is really as there as they want it to be.
