Rolf is really stupid for pulling a gun on Steve in the middle of an Olive Garden like that.

HAHA!

 

I wish I were watching back when they had that Rome arc in '97... I read a scanned article online where the set decorator talked about redressing Salem Place to look like "Rome."  Even when they'd go to Europe before the '09 budget crisis they always had "Europe" sets... at the time I thought they were cheesy af; these days, I'd kill for 'em lol.  "Chad and Abby in Paris" worked for me because of the stock establishment shots and that great new set they got.

I am so sick of Rolf. I was happy to see him at the beginning but now I want him off the show and not mentioned anymore.

It's as if they want Rolf to become the new Stefano.  However, a new Stefano is the very last thing DAYS needs.

 

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: this show simply refuses to evolve.

Agreed, Will was saying he caused the accident, but wasn't even sure about it. Clearly he has none of his mother in him because Sami would have not given herself up like that with no proof.

 

Word! Why would Sami, Kate or, even, Gabi ever permit Will to get railroaded for something like this? Did Will plead guilty without a trial? 

 

After the flashbacks, not even Susan Banks would be dumb enough to fall for this. I was expecting at least some plausible reason - like he blacked out, someone identified his car,  Rolf gave him a memory altering injection, etc. 

 

Maybe this Will was switched for Sami's real son at birth because he has zero Sami in him. Will is doing a serious disservice to the stereotype of spacey twinks.

i'm guessing in another predictable, boring shock-twist Bonnie's actually dead not Adrienne.

That's what I was thinking too; that at some point Rolf switched Bonnie and Adrienne's memories

yeah, I thought it was weird that Hattie was talking about Bonnie so much during her scenes with Eve in prison... like the writers didn't want us to forget she existed or something.

Im thinking that MagsCar caused the accident but Summer was deiving. After the accident she put drunk Mags in the drivers seat & ran off

It would be a classic Ron twist. I hope Judi Evans knows that. I know in the interview that she gave, she said she was sad but deep down she has to know that she probably will be back.

I hope so. Cause all of that would destroy Maggie. And actually, Freddie Smith did say on his podcast that another twist was coming

She's probably already back and has been taping for months.

1. Yes to Judi Evans returning more frequently. 

2. No to Adrienne. They did an excellent tribute to the character last week. DAYS needs to make death matter again. 

 

Last week was a reminder why JE is such a pleasure to watch. Better to be rid of Hattie (DH is so lazy), give that ‘role’ to Bonnie. They could use almost same scripts. Haha.

The sad part is that this is probably them "investing" in this weeks episodes, when in all honestly this is what the show should be aiming to look like all the time. It's sad to remember when "investing" usually meant stuff like Greta's coronation massacre, now it means shooting in an actual hallway / office and hiring a stunt double instead of tossing a blow up doll down the stairs.

 

BINGO to the bold. Exactly. They should be striving for this every week. But they likely don't have the budget. And sooooo true on the last part. Sad indeed.

They must have new directors.  Some of the shots have been much tighter, like esp. in hallways... which makes it much realistic that these people are actually in hallways lolol.

 

But this week was very well produced.  My only gripe was that we needed music for the births, Haley's fall, and esp. the crash (and the lead up).  With the budget restrictions, visually, that's all they could do with the crash... but some suspenseful music and lots and lots of fast cutting back and forth between Will, Sonny/Justin, Adrienne/Sarah, and Xander would made such a bigger impact.  But the call between Sarah & Xander before the crash was perfect--LG & PT couldn't have been better all week.  LG's Sarah can really annoy me, but after this week, I really understand why they've invested so much in Sarah/LG.  And with Haley's fall... it was great, but they played it like any other scene in the episode.  After what they invested for those shots, I would have made that THE scene of the episode lol.  But all in all this was a very well produced week; it took him a while, but Greg Meng seems on-point visually, even if the character rotation is still jarringly uneven (because of guarantees and scheduling).

 

For the writing... it was sloppy, but really classic soap.  I just don't know how everyone's gonna move forward from this.  Summer still could've caused the accident, right?  Lol.

 

And one of the changes I think I would have made to the format was instead framing each episode with a "present day" at the top... I would have started each act with that with a specific character recalling whatever, to really give everyone a point of view... but maybe that would've been too much lol.

 

But next week should not be Gina/Stevano heavy.  This show is schizophrenic with who they feature... they're gonna lose a ton of momentum with the reveal--next week should be mostly baby switch and Wilson.  Thank God Ben wasn't in the promo lolol.

 

I agree they're schizo on who they feature but Ron did similarly on OLTL and GH. You'd go a week or two without seeing folks.

 

I also agree on editing the episodes differently. All of it ultimately feels rushed, even if it was decently produced, considering what the show often looks like.

 

They also continue cutting the wrong scenes. Jack with Adrienne was cut. Ron posted about it. Real shame someone keeps [!@#$%^&*] with the show. Yet we could get a 3 and 1/2 minute scene on Sarah worrying about Adrienne, who we never saw her interact with before, IIRC.

 

I'm guessing Summer is the real culprit (NOT A SPOILER TOUPS, IT'S MY GUESS). It frees everyone of blame and Ron didn't bring her back for a hot minute for nothing. It's how he operates. All of these things happened for literally no reason because it's probably Summer's fault.

 

I'm also going to throw out a guess that Evan killed Jordan. They're tying Ciara/Ben/Will/Sonny/Evan together for a reason ...

Random but you know what I kinda miss? Friendships. It's really refreshing when we get scenes between Will/Abby, Ciara/Will, etc. I get with the budget/guarantees/etc. that folks mostly stick to who they're in story with, with brief overlap, but I miss when the canvas truly interacted.

 

I randomly thought of when they had Paul/Lani becoming friendly and then he suddenly was confiding in Chloe.

 

We need more friendships. But soaps don't really take the time anymore. Not saying they don't exist or folks still aren't friends, but there's a lot of little things missing from DAYS that adds up, IMHO. And so it infuriates me when I hear that there's a few folks behind the scenes at DAYS that seem to have issues with certain families. I've heard Alarr is a Suzanne/Maggie stan. And someone thinks John/Marlena have 'too many kids'.

 

It's not a competition.
