Recommended Posts

Guys, there’s way too much discussion about previous years/old storylines.  Please don’t use the monthly thread if you want to go pages and pages of discussion about the past.  Thanks.

So far I am liking Johnny as the Devil.  Carson Boatman is a real find. 

I'm excited to watch later.

Carson has unique charm for a Days lead, I think he'll be great as "the devil." That expressive smirk? I totally buy him as the son of Sami and EJ.

Johnny/Chanel are the soap version of Zach Morris and Lisa Turtle. Days has been nailing the casting lately.

Sorry.

We got carried away in the December thread with the month over, I'll stick to the current mess.

CB is channeling his smirking half brother Will.  I wonder what damage he will cause.  I actually think Will would have been a great person to get possessed as well.

The entire young adult scene is pretty good.  Even if Tripp is boring-I do get his purpose.  I wish they would bring back ORK or someone new as Claire.  I do feel like her absence is noticeable.

I hate how the writing is all over the place to accommodate Sweeney's ATM visits. I love seeing her but it's a mess. Lucas is a kidnapper and Sami is declaring two different soulmates within the same week, and EJ is basically in limbo until she comes back again, all so Ali can be off filming her Hallmark movies. They need to just have Sami be totally single - no EJ or Lucas in relationship limbo waiting for her - and just go off to visit Sydney all the time or something so there are no story threads hanging when she leaves over and over. They revolve way too much story around an actress that they know is only around for a few weeks and then leaving again.

"Duke" is a small stuffed teddy bear that Rafe gave Nicole months ago, and then they agreed to share custody of it.  Something about Rafe missing Orpheus's grandson David that Rafe briefly had custody off, and Nicole missing Eric who was in Africa.  They use the bear to help with their loneliness.  Rafe confides in it.  In his mind, Rafe has been hearing the bear give him advice. (really!)

It's a stupid thing that fans of all characters hate. 

Rafe and Ava are in a relationship and live together.  Ava just learned that  Rafe cheated by having sex with Nicole on the Basic Black conference table.  Ava knew that Duke was a symbol of Rafe and Nicole's supposedly platonic friendship -- and now that Ava knows they had sex, she got pissed off and decapitated the bear and vowed revenge.

The teddy bear Duke (recently decapitated) was a regular-sized teddy bear.

Regarding the picture of the giant bear picture-- That giant bear has not been seen on the show.  That picture is a behind-the-scenes pic of something we'll see eventually.

(I just wasted five minutes of my life typing up that stupidity!)

No, I definitely appreciate the recap as all of this flew right over my head.  I vaguely remember the Orpheus stuff and I don't remember David. David. David? Is he that guy with the Clark Kent glasses? But, if Ava's turning into a looney psycho, then at least she can call a spade a spade to Rafe's face, lol! Grown-ass man talking to and receiving advice from a stuffed toy. I wonder after witnessing Galen Gering's strange behavior on that reality show Dirty Soap, that he's the actual culprit who put the writers up to it, lol! I don't personally know him, but he just seems like a really strange person. Then again, it was a "reality show", so maybe he was doing it all for show. Who knows?

That's why I have difficulty with it too. I mean, are they strapped for cash or something?

No. She just doesn't want to stay full-time and to be honest, I understand why, from their point of view, they'd just take as much of her as they can even if it is not enough to write solid story.

But I agree with everyone that it leaves too many other characters in limbo. They need to find a better way to use her in spurts instead of trying to tell a long-running stories in bits and pieces.

David is Orpheus's grandson with Jordan Ridgeway.  Orpheus son went by the name of Evan and killed Jordan but he framed Ben for it.  Rafe had custody of David because that's what Jordan wanted but Evan's sister Zoey ended up taking over custody when Evan went to jail.  

Evan/Christian *his real name* was hooking up with Sonny for awhile when Will was in jail.  It didn't really make a lot of sense just because Orpheus's kids should have been much older and closer to Sami/Eric's ages though. And I guess Evan was just bisexual because I don't think Sonny and him hooking up had much to do with anything with his plans.

He ends up breaking out of jail and holding a presumed dead Ciara captive and attacks Claire.  I kind of get him and Charlie confused in my mind, but I think Evan is back in jail.

Was GG weird on Dirty Soap?  I remember his wife being really jealous of his love scenes with Ali, but I don't remember him being strange.  But there were some other, stranger co stars on Dirty Soap lol.

 

Why do Kayla and Kate dislike one another?  I can't remember.

I won’t say it’s fire, but I’m looking forward to JoDevil and what he might do. I do wish they would’ve taken the route of having a Tripp/Johnny rivalry though. That would’ve added an interesting dynamic to what’s going on right now

Well, does any female character like Kate? lol

Joking aside, I remember Kayla being blackmailed by Stefan into spying on Kate and ultimately it led to Kate being fired from DiMera but I don't remember if there was any previous backstory

I think it’s because Kate kept the secret about Stevano, which I don’t remember why she did.

Oh yeah.  I think he was blackmailing Kate about something?  And Kate kept mentioning how Marlena was her best friend and felt bad but did nothing lol.

I actually had to pause and think if Kate and Steve ever slept together lol.

In the scheme of Kate's transgressions over the years the Stevano stuff doesn't seem so bad.  I thought I maybe missed something else.

Weren't Stephanie/Phillip once engaged?  Did Kate mess that up?

They were, but I think Stephanie getting kidnapped caused problems for them, leading Philip to cheat with Melanie

For someone who's always been in love with Chloe (according to him), Phillip sure has had a lot of women in his life lol.

He needs a new woman now lol I would say bring Mimi back, and together, they go look for their son. Eventually, they would fall in love. That could also give Justin and Bonnie something to do.
