Well, I admit...that is an interesting twist on Steve's exit. It never even occurred to me reading synopsis before last week that Stefan was into that kind of cybernetics. Then again, he is a Dimera so...

 

They better not kill Paul at this juncture of the story.

 

In both cases, I guess it was missed opportunities for interesting story turns.

Would everyone be comfortable with bringing on kids of Eugene and Calliope? They've been gone long enough to have kids in their 20-30s without any rewrite. A guy for Chloe and Lani to fight over, and a guy to give Tripp at least one friend his age. Plus, you need some characters that aren't related to the the entire canvas, that's a huge problem right now.

What the hell is it with Corday and firing vets then writing a nonsensical exit story.  This happened when Ali and James quit; they were given an embarrassing departure story that seemed so unlike the writers at the time. Now Steve/Patch story is so absurd.  According to Stephen Nichols he accepted the reduced airtime/money then they fired him.  I can't believe Ron wanted to write him out this way.  Admittedly, Ron didn't have a good story for Patch and Kayla (and maybe it was time for him to go) but so stupid.  And to have mumbling Roman deliver the arrest news was laughable.

As much as Sonny is excited about Will’s memory coming back, you’d think he’d still have some kind of connection with Paul. I’m sure that would muddy the storytelling, but I wish there was there was a bit more complexity there (I know, asking for too much these days). I wonder how this will all play out. Probably as underwhelming as usual.

 

The makeup Eric Martsolf is wearing is distracting.

 

The tokenization of Lani/Eli is unacceptable and transparent.

I finally caught up in episodes.....Double Chin Sonny is a selfish SOB. He doesn't care about anyone but himself. He dropped Will for Paul and then dumped Paul for Will. IMO he deserves to be alone. I loathe the character of Double Chin Sonny. Will is a douche bag too. He is coming off rather bad here. He promised Paul that nothing would change if he ever got his memory back. I was glad that Brady told him off today. The Will and Sonny pairing have no rooting value left. The ship has sailed on the coupling. Again Chandler Massey's Will never got married to Double Chin Sonny. And aren't they divorced??

This week so far has been a snooze fest. Were back to Gabi/Chad/Abby nonsense. An extremely bland Elani.  I loved Brady calling out Will. On leaving Paulie for Double Chins Sonny🐻  I can't remember if Will and Brady have ever shared scenes together. I normally can't stand Brady. But i loved how he spoke to Will. Mr. Black spoke some truths to Will. But Will didn't seem to pay him any mind. Since Will is now enthralled by Double Chins Shady Sonny 🐻

    • Victoria outscheming EVERYONE.  Finally.   Such an interesting story about all the men assuming that the poor little woman is clueless and incompetent.  Everyone having conversations about this. (Men assuming that "the poor little woman is incapable of making rational decisions for herself" is really reflecting society right now.)   And meanwhile she is secretly being the queen here and taking down Ashland in her own way and on her own terms, without being *rescued* by any man. They are so underestimating her! Destroy them all!
    • That's a very true point & a very scary estimation.
    • Seriously, given the resources they have, compared to GL at the end, I think they are much worse.
    • There were three of those "series". Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter One  Eight episodes Aug. 1 – Sept. 5, 2019 Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter Two Eight episodes Sept. 19 – Nov. 7, 2019 Last Blast Reunion (takes place in New York City) Eight episodes Nov. 29, 2019 – Jan. 16, 2020 They were on a special "app" called the "DOOLapp" and that app was available only in the US.  You had to have the app -- they couldn't be watched in a regular browser window. They weren't streaming, and they weren't podcasts, but they were sort of like that.  Some viewers referred to the episodes as "appisodes" for lack of a better term.  The show officially called it a "Digital Series".  Each episode was between 6 and 10 minutes long.  The first few were uploaded at once; and then one episode was uploaded each week thereafter. These series sort of had same concept as what Beyond Salem does now - Salem characters interacting outside of Salem. It was canon.  But if you only watched the main daytime show and never knew about the DOOLapp "appisodes", it wouldn't disrupt your continuity of watching the main daytime show. The characters of Chad and Abby had exited the main daytime show prior to this. They had left Salem and were living in Paris.   This was a quick way to check in with the characters without requiring a longterm taping commitment for the actors.  The episodes were so short that I think each "chapter" was filmed in a few days. They introduced the character of Li Shin (Remington Hoffman) for the very first time in  "Chad and Abby in Paris".  Li and Chad worked in the Paris office of DiMera Enterprises.   Later on, Hoffman debuted as Li on the main daytime show in April 2020. For the digital "Last Blast Reunion" in New York, they brought back several of the original actors from the Last Blast Dance teen crowd of old for a reunion - who hadn't been on the main daytime show in many many years. Including Jay Kenneth Johnson and Heather Lindell -- who came to the main daytime show later in 2020. In a different sort of carryover ...  the 2019 Chad and Abby in Paris apartment set was used for the first time for the main daytime show in 2020 -- the set was used briefly at various times when Salem characters were running from the police and went to France and hid out at the DiMera Paris apartment.
    • @Vee Pathetic stuff.  Reminds me that earlier today Jordan Charlton, yet another Bernie dead-ender/accelerationist, was tweeting out Puck News as the gospel truth (an article about how shocked Republicans are at Democrats not doing more after the Dobbs decision).  I don't think it will sway many, because those who fall for this tend to be already be unlikely to vote for Democrats anyway, but the full court press from the garbage dump left, desperately working  to drown out any sense of motivation or activism, has been staggering, and shows just how in bed they are with the right.  Here is Jezebel blatantly misleading people that Biden is soon going to appointed an anti-abortion judge: Media Matters: There is so much more where this has come from, including deadenders pushing people to boycott Planned Parenthood and instead donate to cult groups like Rise Up.
