So is the writing. Why did Lani wait until then to stop the wedding? Why hadn’t  someone grabbed Gabi’s damn phone?

What Lani needed to do was immediately go to Eli, tell him everything, secretly marry him, stage a breakup and then beat Gabi at her own game and send her bitter hateful ass back to prison.

 

The drama was nice and Sal Stowers is a good actress, and the story does sort of reach back to the old days of soap storytelling, but no person is that stupid in real life.

Exactly! It was just too simple for her to grab the phone...or have a good twist like you mentioned where Eli and Lani beat Gabi at her own game. That would have been a lot of fun!  It makes the character of Lani appear to have the smarts of a paper bag.

 

The writing for this storyline is and continues to be terrible. Ron has really dumbed down Lani to elevate Gabi. And this isn't the first time that a character has been dumbed down, so that Gabi could do some sort or revenge plan & scheme. I felt that both Abigail and even Stefan to some degree were dumbed down so that Gabi could try and run over them. I think that Ron really favors Gabi and this is one big reason we are and have gotten this type of writing regarding other characters and her.

 

This is why I SMH when some of the Gabi fans on places like twitter were acting like this was going to be some sort of rivalrly. It's not, Lani is being written without a backbone or much intelligence, while Gabi gets to control her. It's really unfortunate, especially since Lani isn't featured much as it is and hasn't been fleshed out that much as a character. 

 

This could have been a better storyline if Lani was written with more of a backbone and been allowed to thwart Gabi in some way. At the very least she should have told Eli and others about Gabi's plan regarding Julie and the pacemaker. They could have thwarted that and Gabi could have come up with some other plan to get Lani to break up with Eli. Lani and Eli could have gotten married and then later on after the spoiled event happens, we could have seen Gabi still trying to break them up. Or maybe even Eli/Gabi together, (which I think will probably happen.) The show could have shown us how that happened in spite of Lani thwarting Gabi's original plan. And Lani still could have reunited with Eli again in some fashion. 

 

Those types of things would have made this storyline more interesting, much less ridiculous and would have put Lani on more equal footing with Gabi. Instead it's heavily lopsided in favor of Gabi and Lani looks very weak. I think that Eli will be the next person to be dumbed down and weakened in this story.

They're acting like it's wrong to be economically minded. Rude.

No, there's a difference between being "economically minded" and being cheap as hell.  DAYS is the latter.

Well, you shoot a show without resorting to stealing change from the cast members pockets then.

DAYS is gonna kick it back old school like when GL transitioned to television in 1952 and ask the cast to wear their own clothes and do their own makeup. 

 

Oh, and no more creamer for coffee.

Poor DAYS, live impeachment hearings beginning next Wednesday. Deadline reports that the major networks are already planning live coverage. 

 

Sad to think about the years when the soaps were such high quality that the NYT actually said the Iris wiretapping story on Another World was more compelling than the Nixon hearings. These days will anyone even care the soaps aren't on?
