Yes, I am aware Martha was born in 1977 and Kirsten Jr. is, what, 16? Ergo, it's totally possible for her (Martha) to be her (Junior's) mother without it seeming like the plot of a Lifetime Original Movie. But we are not talking about Martha Madison and...whatever her name is. We are talking about Belle Brady and her now-teenaged daughter, Claire; and if DAYS is suggesting Shawn and Belle are MY age or older, then James E. Reilly must have willed to them the last of his crack.
Ken Corday mentions all the time about DAYS being his family's legacy, but just because his parents lovingly handed it down to him, that doesn't mean he has the aptitude to run it even the way he does (which is from a distance, to put it kindly). The man needs to follow Bill Bell, Jr.'s example and stay the hell out of production entirely. Just take his name off the door, his EP credit off the show, and concentrate on what he does best: bar mitzvah bands, and golf dates with Josh Taylor.
At best, Martha looks like a senior or fifth-year undergrad member of her college sorority and the other girl (what's her name again?) looks like the first-semester freshman pledge she's been assigned to torture during Rush Week.
