hasn't had the best track record with Jennifer. Still, after everything
that's happened between them, Jack is a very sweet man.
waking up in each other's arms, Jack announces he wants to find

everything Jack pulled in the last year or two to win back Jen
(pretending to be gay, for example) I think it's sweet that he
wants to prove himself to Tom Horton (even though the Horton
patriarch is dead) worthy of Jennifer's love. I love the new Jack
and I'm sad to see Matthew go. He was and will always be the best
I Want To
Be Like Mom And Dad
writer had the right idea when they paired the offspring of super
couples Marlena/John and Bo/Hope. We knew since the moment that
Kirsten Storms and Jason Cook took over the roles, that whether
you hated them or liked them, they would eventually become a super
couple like their parents.
however, never predicted would have predicted that they'd become
the just like their parents; always willing to solve any mystery,
no matter how dangerous the situation is.
into the DiMera house and snooping through Rex's computer as he
and other guards wandered around the house. Their knack for danger
hasn't gotten them in trouble yet, putting aside when Rex caught
Shawn on his computer, but it might one day.
then, I enjoy their attempts at playing Bond/Nancy Drew.
couple just gets into one situation after another. Fresh out of
the hospital, they've already declared war with the Dimeras and
have had Grans & Celeste sensing that more danger is on the way.
Stefano died, I thought the DiMera/Brady and DiMera/Black wars had
end and the writers would get past those stupid feuds. With the
recent attacks on their lives and the fact Tony was unaccounted
for at that moment Bo is certain Tony did it.
candles are turning themselves off, doors are swing open by
themselves, their pictures are hiding themselves, and the local
psychic is saying their presence sends off bad vibes. Is it
possible one half of this might couple will die when a killer (not
the one that tried at the fashion show) lets loose in Salem? We
already know Abe and Jack will be victims, but will Bo and/or Hope
be victims too?
Dangerously In Love
Mimi! Rex treats her badly and she run back into his arms two days
later. Rex has really big anger problems, she shouldn't run back
to him when he treats like he does.
past two weeks, he's exploded at her a total of ten times for
stupid stuff like telling the truth and not deceiving people. Now,
she knows he may even be a killer and still, she does nothing.
Ever thing right now is pointing to future physical abuse (the
mental has already started) and she stands by his side, takes it
all, and does nothing.
Mimi hasn't been the best person in the past, hooking up with Jan
and plotting Chloe's downfall, but she doesn't deserve to be
treated like she doesn't count. I really want them together, but
if I had a choice between no Rimi and the Rimi that's appearing
right now- I'd choose to cut the losses and move on.
still not close enough. This will they, won't they thing the
writers have with Lucas and Sami is really frustrating!
I know to
immediately hook up couple means they most likely won't last, but
the second Lumi fans got a glimpse of what they most wanted, they
wanted more. We've been patient- settling for the almost kisses,
longing glances, glimpse of jealousy, moment of regret and
understanding and deeply enjoyed the dream/daydream sequences- but
now many fans (including myself) are tired of the writers saying
soon, soon, soon.
they'll get closer by the end of the year (End of the year!!!!
Don't you think you're going a little too fast their sparky? Isn't
sexual tension for ten years too short of a time.), a way to
establish more depth and a genuine connection.
depth do those two need! They were friend and co-schemers then
they turned into enemies. They've tried to destroy and save each
other's lives. And a genuine connection? They share a son, they
once told the other everything! Is that not enough? At the end of
the year what will we get, huh? Will our Christmas present be that
they kiss? I hope so, the writers already have many fans angry,
and to get our hopes up to let us down could get ugly.
Sami is not a saint. She's been a very bad person and done bad
things, even if she thought they were for a good reason. Most
times I sided with Marlena when she told Sami that she was wrong.
when times get tough your mother helps you up not knocks you down.
For Marlena to listen to John instead of her own heart and vote
against Sami- twice!- to keep her job was really mean.
How is her
daughter going to take care of her grandchild? She doesn't want
Sami getting closer to Tony, and yet she is subconsciously doing
that. How is a single mother going to take care of her son and her
bills without a job? Turn to her rich friend! Way to go Doc.
Factor: Take Two
audience knows that Cassie and Philip are brother and sister. Cassie
knows they're siblings, so why on earth would she even for one
second have a fantasy with him.
understand Philip doing that, he doesn't know any better. To him
Cassie is just another hot girl wanting to spend time with him.
Cassie has known for a while Philip was her brother, all feelings
or developing feelings should have been erased long ago.
attraction away and they could make very good siblings. She's a
bitch with a hidden sensitive side (yes it's really there!) and
he's a caring soul with a subdued ruthless side (yes, he does have
one. As some of you may remember, he wasn't exactly that nice to
Chloe when she first arrived.)
my opinion for this week of life in Salem, until the next exciting
week in Salem, I'm signing off.
