Days: December 2015 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

- I continue to think Chad/Abby is the best part of the show - loved their scenes again today

- MM really does exaggeratedly roll her eyes way too often

- Whut @ JJ referring to Chad as some rich sleaze when Chad was busy rescuing his sister and her baby like 5 minutes ago

- Another ridiculously long day in Salem finally draws to a close (or starts again at the end of the episode, idk)

This felt like a Beth Milstein episode - 2 characters by themselves for the entire episode.   She used to do these type  of episodes during her interim run.

I appreciated what they were going for with today's episode. It was all younger/'next gen' couples finding their way. Some parts worked better than others, but it at least felt like someone put thought into it. 

 

Belle truly is ridiculous, though. Calling Philip out on how it's like when they were married because he's keeping things from HER? This bitch was in love with another man the entire time, had said other man's baby, etc. Come on!

Chad and Abby were so good today.

 

I could do without Brady and Theresa having sex. That's all their relationship is. Zzzz.

 

Gabi and JJ were cuter than I expected. I like them together.

 

JPL is doing OK now as Philip. I'm not as opposed. The hair though ... ugh. I like sassy Belle and her calling out Philip. I liked the tension. I don't know that I feel any true chemistry between them but we'll see.

They have to fire Lanie and Ciara and not bringing fan faves back for 50th is the worst thing ever not having original cast member Marie Horton is beyond stupid and turning it to the Hernandez variety hour stinks ken Corday never learns...

Ya, the show was trying to make it seem like they had this two-way dysfunctional, angsty relationship when she was the one actively pining for someone else, kissing someone else on multiple occasions, professing her love for someone else on multiple occasions, almost leaving him on multiple occasions. I can't even remember what secrets he "kept from her"

I actually forgot they are married, all I can remember is the affair storyline once she was with Shawn. She was married to awful Kyle Brandt Phillip right?

She thinks it makes her look like a real actress.

If she wants to play the bitch/ice queen or frustrated wife type, she does it a lot better than the ingenue but she's still not exactly genius. I am tolerating her more now than ever before, though.

I honestly cannot remember. What was the deal with Shawn/Belle/Phillip from around 2005-2008? I remember they were on the run with that god-awful Tinda Lau storyline in early 2007, I think. But I don't recall the details of Belle being married to Shawn, but pining for Phillip?

I'm liking JPL as phillip but belle as a lawyer?! Belle had just started nursing school when she left in 2008... I think belle being a nurse at the hospital (with Maxine) fits the character of belle much better than belle in the courtroom

She loved his dick.

 

I would rather Belle be a lawyer. It fits MM's shiftiness and delineates the character from many other cardboard saints in Salem.

Victor made sure Shawn and Belle looked like bad parents. Philip came back from war with a new face (not really since it was JKJ) and got custody of Claire. Shawn found out Philip was planning to leave the country so he and Belle kidnapped Claire. Philip and Willow followed them. First to Canada, then on to a cruise ship. Shawn and Belle jumped with Claire because being shark food was a better option than Philip, they ended up on Tinda Lao. A couple of months later Philip found them, they lost Claire at sea, then found her at a baby pageant. Philip and Belle became friends again. She helped him search for his real son Tyler, the baby he and Mimi had through a surrogate named Lauren, They thought she had an abortion but Bonnie had paid her to keep the baby. The baby ended up with Steve and Kaya for a while, who called him Pocket. He ended up sick, so S&K lost him to another pair of foster parents, then S&K talked Philip into letting the other family keep Tyler. Philip went to the church and found Belle who was there alone. The day before she lost her father in a hit and run. They kissed then went back to Shawn and Belle's room at the Brady Pub and had hot sweaty sex. Philip left and had a fight with Shawn while Hope confronted Belle. She and Shawn got married while Philip kept courting her. Then Chloe came back. Belle told Shawn she had slept with Philip. Claire was kidnapped by the "I Wanna Be a Soap Star" Winner who worked for Colleen Brady. Shawn, Belle, Philip and Chloe flew to Ireland and got Claire back. They left with John, Marlena, Bo, Hope, Steve, Kayla and Shawn Sr. The plane crashed on Greenland. Philip and Chloe had sex. Shawn and Belle decided to be a family and left Salem with Claire on their new boat "Fancy Face IV".
