Days: Tuesday

Chelsea is supposedly "Georgia" but we know that is impossible as Georgia was stillborn, dead and buried. I think this story is a concoction of the DiMera's stealing Hope's baby born early in the Princess Gina days as she was pg when she disappeared and her baby was stolen and given to the Benson's to raise. Then, they configured information onto a disc that Patrick gave to the Salem PD which had a crypt ed message about "Georgia" being alive and hid out, which caused Billie to go ape over dragging Bo all over the world on false clues to find "Georgia", meantime neglecting Hope and the boys and making friction between them. When Tony DiMera was arrested and being sent off to prison, he nailed the charade by telling Billie that Chelsea Benson was "Georgia", which of course, she cannot be. I think JER intended to have the truth of it come out, but I don't know if Hogan will do anything about that and still try to pass off the dead Georgia as Chelsea....my opinion.

Shawn and Belle are together in rather united in being Claire's parents but each lives with their respective parents (stretch of the imagination as we never see them with their parents at home LOL.

I like MM's Belle but not liking Beemer's Shawn anymore. To me he has a harsh face which is making his harsh ways totally despicable in my view. Belle needs an intelligent, success-oriented man in her life, not a total loser.

Personally, I think it's stupid to give up DAYS just because Chelsea is still being treated like an outsider, when it's only been a year since she ran down Zack and only on Christmas did she show any remorse for her actions, and that Shawn and Belle are fighting for their child, which is what any normal parent would do. If you're watching just for Chelsea, Philip, Willow and mystery bones, you're missing out on a whole lot and not being invested in the entire show, which ALL fans should be.

ITA Bree! And I was kind of surprised that Hope was THAT nice to Chelsea. Yes, she has forgiven her or has taken steps to but no matter what Chelsea ran down her boy. It's HARD to accept and I think their slow steps towards having a relationship is more realistic than anything.

Today's episode was good but I hate the feeling that Nick is becoming frontburner. And ANOTHER flashback. Please stop NOW!!

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed the Steve & Bo scenes today. I'm so impressed with how well Sheffer slid them right back into their brothers/friends vibe without losing that edge they always kept with each other, neither at all shy about kicking the other's ass.

PR and SN really are amazing actors. SN especially really blew me away. The terror in his voice as he cried "please don't touch me" gave me chills. And the way he seemed so ... lost and vulnerable when he was talking to Bo in the hallway. That affect is so not Steve. He was always the badass, macho guy, full of bluster even when (especially when) he was unsure of himself. I don't think we've ever seen him as weak-looking as when he was talking to Bo.

Still really enjoying the teen set, surprisingly enough. Abby, Chelsea and Nick are being written really well and the actors are doing a great job at not being generic plastic teens.

Count me in with those really annoyed at the way they have Hope and Kayla pimping Billie. I actually like Billie (when she's not whoring after Bo or Steve) but when we have Hope and Kayla behaving like doormats and doing back somersaults to be nice to her, it's just annoying and actually makes me like her less. ATTN WRITERS: It's perfectly okay to have otherwise likeable characters not like each other. Having Hope or Kayla respond to Billie civilly but cooly isn't going to make me like any of the three less. In the real world some people don't get along. It's okay. And pimping one character at the expense of another just makes me dislike the character being pimped. Yes, Kayla is a "glass half full" kind of girl who always tries to see the best in people, but she's never been a wimp or a doormat and having her THANK Billie is just beyond the pale. Grrrrrr.

So my head is still hurting from the anvils that bounced off of it from the Steve & Bo and Hope & Kayla scenes. Steve said 3 different times he'd never hurt Kayla. That can't bode well. And Kayla says it's a bad time to get pregnant? On a soap, that can only mean one thing. My only question is just how dark Sheffer is willing to go with this story...

Definitely agree. If they weren't on today I may have not finished the episode. They were awesome. And I hope the foreshadowing continues.

I also thought of Kristen when I heard Eileein. My fingers are still crossed.
