Recommended Posts

So they revealed the killer today? Man, DAYS has the worst luck when it comes to pre-emptions these days... Gladys and Maybelle better figure out how to work their grandkids' computers!

Problem for me with preemptions is that people who need breaking news now have 24/7 news channels they can tune in on cable or the Internet.

There is no need to preempt regular programming on regular channels for, often, not say much of value. If you are that interested in a news story that you want to watch the press conference, switch to a news channel. As for the underlying news, a banner at the bottom of the screen is good enough

MM's been great this time around. She's playing all the emotions and anger that Abby should be feeling at this time so well.

She feels like a totally different actress this time around.

I second this. I always thought of her as "Ambien Abby" during her first stint and I've warmed up to her so much more this time. I don't think much of Kate Mansi so I hope Marci is our "final" (or "real" as ABC circa 2007 would say) Abby from now on.

  The writers finally started writing for Marci's Abby the same as Kate Mansi's, which they should have been in the first place.  Never  understood why DAYS formerly wrote Miller's so differently.  It definitely was the poor writers fault after Marci Miller has proven over and over again how good she is playing Abby with a backbone!

So will Jan just become part of the jail crew of villains that escape twice or so per year?

No matter how much they try to paint Theo as the bad guy, I will never see it that way. But I do have to ask though, who dressed Theo in that hideous shirt today 

 

Sami/Lucas and Brady/Chloe continue to be the only good parts of the Kristen storyline. Weaving Jake/Kate/Gabi/Philip into it is not the answer though. I usually like big umbrella storylines like that, but I cannot wait for this one to be over

I can't even deal with Kate's blue hair streak today.  Didn't she lose it for awhile?  It looks awful.  Even if she was only 25.   I know she's had it for at least a decade, but some days it looks a lot worse than others.

I know Ben is the worst, but I actually thought Ciara was really cruel to him today.  I just don't think Ciara leaving the country is a solid idea when she has mental issues.  And, sure, let's jump into something with Theo.  Idk, her points weren't wrong but the way she delivered the news to Ben was so smug and unsympathetic.  I don't want to side with Ben in any capacity but Ciara was being unnecessarily terrible to him.  I mean I get it but, Ciara, you were the idiot that married him in the first place.

Lumi continue to be the best part of the show.  Love them so much!!

Of course but I am sure you realize that your reaction is exactly why they unnecessarily wrote that scene that way. They want us to sympathize with Ben despite his creepy abusive behavior. And the best way to do that is for Ciara to act like a b*tch rather than make the reasonable points she would be entitled to make.

Presumably since they want him to be viable as a romantic lead once Ciara is gone, they want us to see *his* heart broken and feel bad for *him*.

LOL!  The show is manipulating me.  I don't want to sympathize with Ben at all.  And he is creepy and not a viable romantic lead, but ruining Ciara like this is unfair.  It's not like she had much of a personality before, but ugh...I am not liking her at the moment.  It's just so obnoxious the show is doing this.

That reminds me of when JER originally planned for Jan to be the mysterious black glove hand in 2006 before he shown the door. 
 

I love seeing Lucas and Sami sparring onscreen again the chemistry is still so strong and natural after all these years.

i think you’re exactly right, but at the same time, it still makes me dislike Ciara to the point that I don’t care if she leaves the show.

 

I know Ben is a killer, but I’ve just put that in a box and shoved it out of the way. Is that because I like the way RSW looks too much? Probably. I’m just being honest about being shallow.

 

But pairing Ben with Claire is a BAD idea. I see NOTHING there. No heat, no chemistry, nothing.

So are we to believe Rex hasn’t told a single person in town that Sarah did not in fact leave with him? And has literally no one tried to text her? I don’t like this loose end at all.
