I kinda lost interest mid-week so I need to catch up ... but I did watch today.
I see what they're going for with Sonny/Nina and Jason/Carly but I'm still furious with the lack of initial fallout and drama.
I have mixed feelings on it, but if Esme isn't Ryan's daughter I don't see the point. I don't have time for another Willow. Embrace her inner looney toon. I would have liked a bit more set up with Trina/Spencer/Esme but it's currently one of two things I care about going on. Josslyn works better as supporting with Trina as the lead. Just sayin ...
The other is Scott and Obrecht. I don't really give a damn about nuVictor's desires and honestly he doesn't feel like a Cassadine. Shaughnessy is great as a villain though. I like that it gives weight to Scott and Obrecht's relationship. A rare bright spot and the second thing going on I care about. Although I'm pretty sure Victor's likely the 'fall guy' for Peter.
I like that Maxie has gotten a bit of her spark back and has more biting lines and comedic snark again. I wanted a bit more from her with Nina based on what I've heard.
Nikolas and Spencer gave me Stefan/Nikolas vibes with the chess playing and talk about Trina. I know some tired of her, but I kinda miss Helena and would love to see her with this Spencer and Nikolas. I'm also glad Spencer learned about Sonny. I appreciate beats being played.
Gotta admit, Days' filler episodes are a lot better than GH's lol
The chemistry is there between RSW and VK but the writing really did doom both Ben and Ciara. If countless characters hadn't been sacrificed or destroyed in order to prop Ben, and if the conflict between Ben and Ciara had come from within themselves, as opposed to some outside force, I think people, myself included, would've liked them much more.
Is this any worse than anything Days has done since the 90s though? I mean I was just watching all the stuff with Susan Banks from the 90s. Anything goes on this show it seems. It would have been better if they'd stuck to realism decades ago, but then I do like the possession storyline so there is that.
This episode was filler. You have actors working on limited episodes yet you have Johnny and Chanel watching a movie and the worst couple on the show [!@#$%^&*]. You have Kayla and Patch meeting Paulina. The scenes were cute but pure filler...what a waste of an episode.
