Are Jack and Gwen kinda creepy to anyone else?  Their scenes are just weird. I could just be reading the room wrong, but they aren't hitting the father/daughter notes very well.

We are not yet in Charity Roehmer towards John territory but it is an odd dynamic. I wish this was brilliant acting to hint they were not actually father/daughter but alas...

Charity Rahmer's best work was hitting on John.  I always wonder if that was her 'master acting' or she just literally had no idea it was her onscreen dad.  I wish her work was still available on you tube.

No, Jack and Gwen were weird.  If I tuned into the show for the first time today and you told me Gwen and Jack were a pairing I would believe you.

I've been asking the same for a few months now and it's crickets. I can't recall the renewal ever being announced this late and I'm a little bit concerned. 

It worries me because it’s feeling like Port Charles where they went on hiatus not knowing if theyd get renewed or not and as a result it ended on a cliffhanger. It’s so odd we know nothing. We don’t know if the show has a contingency plan or anything. All Ryan Qwan had to offer on Instagram was that he’s keeping his fingers crossed. This is so odd.

“As the great Whitney Houston said, ‘My name is not Susan...’”

 

Hat’s off to the scriptwriter.


Jackée’s delivery and facial expressions are A+.

 

All the soaps are bad, but only DAYS tries—and unlike GH, often succeeds—in entertaining.

I wonder which member of the writing team added that? It was a great touch. No way is RC hip enough to know about this song. Which was a modest hit for Whitney.

That's how I feel too. It's uneasy that there's been ZERO information. On the one hand, the show has invested in new sets - why would they ever bother to do that? On the other hand, is this why Sweeney agreed to return because she knew it was a finite period of time to give the show closure?

It seems weird they would recast EJ too if the show was ending.

 

Ben is such a creep.  I am seriously uncomfortable with his treatment of Ciara.  And I was fairly okay with Cin before.  Like calm down Ben!  Your wife is alive!  She may not remember you but she's not dead so that's still a win.  I am okay with them playing him as slightly psycho because he is, but should I be invested in this love story lol

The problem is that they are NOT playing this as him having remnants of his psychological problems and control issues with women.
That would actually be interesting in a "Can someone be truly reformed" kind of way - like they once did with Janet on AMC where she was genuinely becoming a better person but her psychological health had shaky moments. That's where his weird friendship with Marlena could play in because she is a psychologist and could work this out with him while worrying he might still be dangerous if it gets worse and worry if she could warn Ciara or Hope or whoever. Dilemna! Conflict! Character layers! Grey shadings! That could work.

But that's not what they seem to be going for. For them this is supposed to be a man desperately in love longing for his Juliet or something and we are supposed to be frustrated along with him that it is one more obstacle for our star-crossed lovers

Well: no.

It seem like the writers are taking the easy way out. Instead of going for that in depth character study, they're just going for all the melodramatic stuff designed to make Ben look like the hero again.

 

The one saving grace of all this is that Theo hasn't been ruined as a character.

And when he finally does something that will help rejigger her memory and she loves him again, we will ignore things like "Injecting her with a product without her consent"

Well considering that 

Hopefully that doesn't happen for a while

I just don't understand why we should be on Ben's side.   And it's not as if Ben has waited months and months for Ciara to get her memory back.  I think she's been awake for 2 or 3 days Salem time.  His whole reform 'arc' has always been shaky at best, but now he is being an aggressive weirdo to his wife.   We've seen John/Marlena and Kayla/Steve do some pretty intense stuff during their respective amnesia stories, but it never seemed as creepy I guess.  This is actually where Hope's absence is glaring.  Ciara needs someone besides Theo on her side.  

 

Well, at least Lumi continue to entertain with their banter and stupid plots that will never work.  I have to laugh that the best these two legendary schemers could come up with is for Lucas to have sex with Chloe.  So dumb lol.
