I love that the Salem brain jumped from Anna to John.

 

I must say, I did love that one time when John had possession of the Salem Brain when he figured out "Nicole" was really Kristen in a mask. It almost made up for the era when Kristen pulled the wool over his eyes with the Susan/Kristen switcheroo of '97. All the Salem men were dumb during this timeframe, but John was particularly clueless. Yet, when he connected the dots re: Nicole-is-Kristen, I was legit impressed the superspy actually solved a mystery.

That material just didn't work at all for me, and I thought there was something creepy and sexist about the way the show kept trying to build suspense with those bedroom scenes. Frankly, I think they would have been better off to just briefly show Claire and Charlie having good sex, but then Claire later feeling regret and anger once she learned she'd slept with her cousin's rapist. 

 

I swear, you would've thought Claire and Charlie were siblings Marie and Tommy Horton. Ooh, the taboo!

Yeah, RSW needs a story that better suits his particular, uh, talents. Like "Broke and devastated after the loss of Ciara, Ben becomes a male escort." 

 

I mean shoot, why not? Utilize their assets, so to speak. 

 

Ben... Nicole... Rafe... Brady... so many characters wandering aimlessly as their onscreen partners are off the canvas for good or their partner is "dead" or in jail.  Such aimlessness. Just rest them for a few months. They can pop in later, like Tony & Anna do, or like Belle and Shawn did. It's not like the actors are going to book work elsewhere. 

 

Still, DAYS has way more focus in storyline direction than the forth quadrant characters of B&B

Are you implying there is only one brain in Salem and it moves to the needed person as the plot dictates?

 

Hilarious!  I actually did laugh out loud.

Lol yes that is exactly what I’m implying

You skipped a step: Abby had the Salem brain for a day when she finally figured out that Gwen is not her friend.

 

Totally agreed about Ben and nu-Claire being the show's weak links. That material just didn't work at all for me, and I thought there was something creepy and sexist about the way the show kept trying to build suspense with those bedroom scenes. Frankly, I think they would have been better off to just briefly show Claire and Charlie having good sex, but then Claire later feeling regret and anger once she learned she'd slept with her cousin's rapist. 

You are correct Abby started to use the brain as well but that was because Anna first lead her in the right direction after only meeting Gwen once.

You know I agree with you completely about nu-Claire. I haven’t liked that actress for one second, mostly because she’s not Claire — she’s a different character. Even when I complain about the actress, I never feel like I’m watching Claire.

 

And the plan is to pair her with Ben? Sorry, but that’s making a bad situation even worse. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather see Ben with LESS than nu-Claire.

That’s what kills me. She recites Claire’s history and I don’t feel it at all. This is not Claire. Compare that to Cady as Jennifer who I’ve pretty much completely accepted while missing Problematic Missy. But Cady still FEELS like Jennifer.

Damn, that’s the truth. I’m tired of baby stealing stories. And being stopped like that by Bonnie? Why wouldn’t the baby kidnapper just say “I have to go”?

What a boring Friday episode. I was expecting followup with Rafe showing up at Charlie's door, Ava telling Kayla she has another son, etc. Instead they totally killed the momentum with that story and we got Kristen in prison being jealous over Chloe and this stupid baby snatching story.

 RC is totally hot for him

 

John and Steve went to Philadelphia and found out about Charlie from Ava's cousin. John called Marlena and she tried to find Claire. However, Ben was with Marlena and insisted he go along. (Ughh) He found Claire and Charlie just as they were about to have sex. Ben was so smug and arrogant that I wanted to knock him out lol

Rafe found Ava passed out and took her to the hospital, then was able to track down Charlie at his apartment.

Lani and Eli's babies were kidnapped by the doctor who switched Kristen and Sarah's babies. She ran into Bonnie as she was escaping with them.

Kristen found out about Brady and Chloe kissing and got pissed at him.

Xander cracked Philip's laptop and realized he was laundering money through Titan.

Of course. Ben the hero. It's so nauseating. It has to be Ron. And he knows a lot of us have bitched about Ben's "redemption" so of course he's probably doubling down.

 

It's nice things are happening though. I'm still hardly invested but there's movement.

Definitely. But why he has to make Ben such an arrogant douchebag, I'll never understand.

 

Regardless, I did think it was a good week as well. There's always room for improvement, but overall I'm still enjoying the show.

Ugh the same doctor kidnapping? Terrible storytelling

 

I'm not here for Ben to be a hero. He's a serial killer ...memo to Carlaviti!

Exactly!

 

This friggin guy should be hiding under a rock, not trying to act all good and noble and shaming other people, not even bad people.

Yeah, I don't understand the writing sometimes. And I think it's also how RSW plays it.

 

It was a good week all things considered. I also somewhat liked GH. It feels like they woke up. I hope the momentum continues.

THIS

 

We're going on 3 years of this damn redemption. I'm so sick of it. We spend so much time on him when it could go towards literally anyone else. I just don't feel like our soaps have this kind of time to waste anymore. And he's a SERIAL KILLER. Like ... just because Will didn't stay dead doesn't erase the others. I can't. It can NEVER work and they need to just accept it and move on.

Well, as long as RSW looks like this or as long Ron is writing the show, I don't think they'll be moving on.
