I watched today's episode. First time watching DAYS in over a year, mostly for Will.  Even though I don't really know what's going on, I actually thought it was a fairly decent episode. 

Will was in it more than I expected. I figured we'd get 1 scene, and we got at least 3. Johnny asking Will if he did anything fun this summer and Will only mentioning a trip and not mentioning doing drag made me chuckle. I know why (this was filmed before Beyond Salem), but I laughed nonetheless. 

 

 

I'm watching too because Will is on. 

Chandler has a nice kitchen. 

Oh they just had a promo for beyond Salem during the show.

So this episode was taped before beyond Salem?

When Will told Johnny that his dad is hard guy to say no to, I got flashbacks to EJILL. Will would know, the way he used to lust after him. 

Hahaha I was thinking the same thing.

This episode isn't that bad. We have Will and Johnny on. Paulina revealed her secret to Marlena and Tripp is looking cute as a lost puppy looking for love.

it may have been taped during Beyond Salem and editing in. Unless Chandler skyped in from GA

Today was a big improvement over the rest of the week.

I was surprised that Paulina revealed her secrets to Marlena, but I’m here for it. Having Marlena know about Lani’s true parentage could be really big story wise.

Always enjoy Tripp/Allie/Chanel/Johnny. All four actors work so well together

Yes, even though he's mentioned in spoilers. I didn't expect to see him. It wasn't even mentioned in his many beyond Salem interviews.

Finally, a decent episode. I liked the surprise appearance from Chandler. He looked hot, lol. Johnny's movie should bring Will (and Sonny!) back to Salem. I kept hoping Zack Tinker would show up in the background of Will's video call.

Marlena looked lovely in that shade of blue today.

I can't with all the Abe/Paulina marriage talk. Sorry Abe, but you've got competition now with Doug! LMAO! That was too funny.

So glad that the quad was finally on today. The actress who plays Chanel is so gorgeous. More Chanel/Johnny please.

All the characters they used today were the interesting ones (except maybe Lani/Eli).  I don't know why the show doesn't mix it up by using a variety of good characters on different days.  It's like they do the B stories some days and A stories the other days.  Like JER did except his B stories were better and I think Chabby and Cin are considered A stories lol

Raven Bowles is really pretty and she dresses really well always.

Totally. It's like watching two different shows sometimes. We had several days of Bonnie/Justin/Calista nonsense and the stale Brady/Chloe/Philip triangle. It was a complete snooze and I kept saying that they needed to put Johnny/Chanel in these episodes to spice them up, lol. Then today we had far more interesting people on with the quad, a surprise Will appearance, Doug/Julie, and Paulina telling Marlena the truth about Lani. I like this show better.

It sounds like tomorrow will be good too, so I am really not sure why they don't mix it up.  I get that these stories shown today intertwine, but they may need to mix it up a bit.  I think it might be a matter of them switching gears for the fall and tying up some loose ends on some stories.

"Johnny contacts Will about his film project" 

I wasn't sure if he'd appear. It's unfortunate it's the cheap zoom mess. You'd think they would've taped these scenes during his time filming beyond Salem.

I just felt that the conversation between Will and Johnny seemed awkward, as if both characters were just saying their lines. No overlapping dialogue, no sense of fun, no feeling that they’re related. 
 

Just did not work for me.

I assume to get a decent quality Zoom they'd pretty much have to film them separately and green screen it onto the computer, so they probably didn't even act "together".

    • Don't do it. They take your money, keep you hanging for weeks and then block you.  I learnt the hard way when I had to try and reclaim a lot of money back.  I reported them over and over but FB won't take the page down. 
    • I really like that cast photo: Kay holding tight onto Brock like he is her lover whereas Jill and Phillip Sr oose so much swinging seventies...
    • These assessments heavily rely on when you STARTED watching (or stopped LOL) because of the sheer length of B&B's timeline by now: Due to Caroline's death, the whole relationship has the perfect romance status - forever. Even though the last time we have seen Caroline was her ghostly visit in January 2021. Ridge had to FIGHT for Caroline and he had the chance to GRIEVE for Caroline. (Something that has rarely happened since because pacing nowadays is soooo different!). For me Taylor was always Ridge's second perfect love. Now that I've seen 1990-1992 it is a little harder to fall this assumption because I had no idea hoq quick the shift  of commitment happened in 1992. However, from 1993-2002 there was zero possibility for that Ridge actually loved Brooke. She was a caniving h* who always used her children for her own benefit and desperate need to cling onto Ridge.  Ever since the show shifted to Nick/Brooke/Ridge and Bill/Brooke/Ridge we have entered a whole new aera in the traingel business which made Brooke much more liekable for me, but the perfect romance never involved Ridge.  
    • I am watching early 1991 right now and to me it is obvious that Ridge is attracted to Taylor but more emotionally involved with Brooke, although he has given up on her because she's marrying his dad (kind of like he tried to give up Caroline after she married Thorne and dated Brooke instead). Another thing that is obvious is how Brooke is clearly more in love with Ridge than with Eric, and that that marriage was doomed before it began (Brooke dreaming about marrying Ridge on her wedding day to Eric).  I agree that after Thorne, Grant was Macy's best pairing. He was very good with her and cared very deeply about her happiness. I think Macy as a character was very sensitive to OOC writing and it showed in the storylines the months before both her deaths. Because she was usually so decent and sweet, she didn't have a lot of leeway, so anytime she broke that pattern it made you go "whoa..." and it didn't always ring true. Usually it was her interactions with Brooke that pulled her out of character because Macy was shown to truly hate Brooke and it wasn't really in her nature to be hateful, bitter or vindictive (she usually ended up on friendly or at least civil terms with all her rivals - even becoming best friends with Karen). Also, she was more aggressive with Brooke than I'd say was believable for Macy (it was more in character for Macy to turn that destructiveness inward). But it went both ways - Brooke also showed her absolute worst side in her interactions with Macy to the point where it was almost OOC (I never really knew Brooke to be quite as gleefully sadistic with anyone else as she was with Macy - like when she sent her a drink, or when she casually suggested that Macy's mother was dead just to see Macy's reaction). 
    • That has definitely been around for a while. Don't think it is photoshopped. I have seen it in 70's mags, just much smaller and B&W  Also there is a different shot of Jeanne, Brenda and Donnelly from this same shoot. All in same clothes but just the three of them and grouped differently. Here it is from a 70's mag but can't remember which one.      Please register in order to view this content Now I look, the B&W one is slightly different. Bill Espy has crossed arms and Brenda is looking more straight on to the camera.  Oh the one with Brenda, Jeanne and Donnelly is definitely a composite from the above cast shot. Just realised that, haha
