Maggie calling Nicole a lying, scheming bitch....wtf? Since when was she holding in such nasty hateful thoughts about her? All the times those two have interacted in recent times, they've been cool with each other and Maggie has been supportive and kind to her. Heck she defended her to Victor no too long ago when she tried to get him to allow her to move in with them

Me to! I was watching today and really dug them as a couple. I could feel the sexual tension between them.

Happy one year anniversary of the time Daniel found out Maggie was his mother in the least dramatic way possible. It's so weird to think that he went to calling her "mom" in the span of less than a damn year. And while we're talking about lying, Maggie, let's not forget you never bothered to tell Daniel that his mother stole your eggs with Victor's help. I don't have as much vitriol toward Daniel as others, but I really can't stand his insta-bond with Maggie. This story would be just as fine with Mel being close to Maggie and in Mel's absence, Maggie appealing to Daniel. But no, he has to be related to Maggie! And everyone is OBSESSED with Daniel/Jen as if Nicole is trying to keep effing Bo and Hope apart. No one was going to bat for Jack when Daniel was in the mix. This is utterly ridiculous.

The other elements of the story are working for me, though. Pulling Kristen into it with EJ, EJ threatening Nicole, etc. I also have to LOL at the continued day player nurses arguing about STEALING FROM THE HOSPITAL LOST AND FOUND. Good grief!

I'm also loving Kristen/Brady's chemistry, it's been a while since Brady was smoking with anyone (Nicole being the last). But I like this potential pairing so much better than Brady/Madison and their dull segway riding.

This is an interesting angle with Nick to take, whereas he's not explicitly hating Sonny and Will. And the fact that Will's his cousin and he genuinely wants him to be happy. I really like what they're doing with Lucas and Nick, actually, because neither of them has been villainized as most "anti-gay" people in gay storylines tend to be. It's always "I hate gays!" or "I hate that my son is gay!" and this is a really, really fresh way to be telling this story. What's actually weird to me about this is that this storyline feels current, whereas a lot of other stuff on the show isn't. It's a shame that gay storylines are the only ones that feel fresh on soaps now (and really, only this current direction on Days, because other gay stories are pretty cliche at this point). Where's someone obsessed with social/current events like writers back in the 70s? I'd kill for anything more modern.

No one who wants to tell a social issues story would be allowed today, unless you count that stuff like Stefano's diabetes or Theo's autism.

Yeah, when they did the NPR report on DAYS earlier this year, it pretty much cemented my belief that they were never going to push the envelope with social issues ever again so long as Corday were in charge, simply because he was so petrified of losing whatever audience he had left.

It's Corday, but also TV in general, especially daytime TV.

I guess I just find it so counterintuitive. If you do the same thing over and over for years and it eventually stops working and you lose business, you'd think the first thing to do would be to refocus and be bold and maybe do something daring (oddly enough, like DAYS did at its inception, and in the 80s, and 90s), not going "oh well, this didn't work for anyone else, let's just do exactly that and blame someone else for our problems. That's just bad business.

And yes, I know it's been talked to death and nothing's going to change, but damned if it isn't so frustrating to watch a show that was DESIGNED from the word 'go' to be a bit of a trailblazer be reduced to this.

I do, but if that's where it's going, great. But what's fresh and current about any of the other stories. Even this story you're talking about has its roots in OLTL's gay story, and their other big story of the moment is a half-assed rip-off of GL's Reva/Annie story from 15 years ago! Like...I like Caroline's Alzheimer's story, but it's not a whole story, as they're just...leaving. I just feel like nothing's fresh, even their fresh stories just aren't well-conceived enough. But I do see what you mean.

In a way, DAYS is better off staying away from socially and/or topically relevant stories. They just don't have the actors capable of pulling off such material.

Wow, I read your post before I saw the show and wondered what in the world it could be about man she really is stupid. I loved how Hope covered her mouth and told her to shut up

I REALLY hate the Horton siblings right now and thats Jenn and Will. The is obssessed lunatic and the other one is coming across homophobic. They are the two most insufferable characters on the show

Sami and Kristen is made of pure win. Did they interact at all in the 90s?

Loved Sami's scene with Nicole. They have such a great dynamic and are great as frenemies

Gabi sleeps with Nick but I just realized not too long ago she was f--king his cousin

What the heck is up with all this focus on the donated baby clothes? I dont get it at all

I agree. I have to assume they are using this as a way to "expose" Nicole for knowing her baby had already died, but what a dull way to go about it. I could care less that she left baby clothes at the hospital that day. It just doesn't make sense and could so easily be explained away. Why wouldn't he find the chart she stole with the information (if she didn't dispose of it? I can't remember) or have the doctor who diagnosed her show up at Jennifer's trial and expose the truth then (that is if Nicole hadn't changed her story and Jennifer hadn't been released from jail after two minutes instead of letting the story play out for a bit).

I probably enjoyed those Sami and Nicole scenes more than anything in recent memory. Aside from the Caroline memory story, everything has been boring and I'm only enjoying certain aspects of Kristen's return.
