Celeste getting possessed with that evil spirit
threw me off guard, I wasnít expecting to see that. It reminded me
of when Marlena was possessed, plus all of those flash back to
that situation couldnít keep your mind off that incident. Celeste
is a great character, sometimes annoying because she says the same
lines over and over, ďI feel someone is going to die!Ē I do like
the supernatural stories to a point, but Days has been more
structured than that, and hey itís fine to watch on Passions, but
Days of our Lives has always been a little classier.
I found it odd as well, when Celeste was reading her tarot cards
that Jackís picture wasnít on the cards like the others. Then I
remembered that he just finished up on another show, so maybe
there were contract issues that Days couldnít show him. But then
the next day we saw a flashback to Marlena Killing Jack, so that
did baffle me!
Many of us are wondering if in fact Cassie is still alive and
helping Marlena with these killings. First we saw her fall out of
the piŮata and then she was cremated. Second she has not returned
yet as a ghost, you would think if she was dead and had been so
close to Rex all her life, she would have came back and said
goodbye to him. Third, she is the one character that is not
mentioned as much as the other victims, when people are talking
about the ones who were killed. Whether this is a clue the writers
are giving us or we are just grasping at straws, but itís fun to
I cried when Alice died and they showed her taking Toms hand and
saying that he had been waiting for her. Wow! That was powerful.
Iím looking forward to many more flashbacks about Alice. Alice was
a wonderful character and everyoneís favorite grandmother. I wish
Frances Reid the best she has always been an excellent actress,
Frances Reid is a Daytime Living Legend, congratulations on your
marvelous career on Days of our Lives you will be missed terribly.
With all of these killings, the show has dramatically changed, and
my one hope is that the audience continues to watch the show and
not be bitter toward it. Everything that is being done is supposed
to be for the benefit of the show; we just have to give it a
chance to see what in fact is going on. Because something was
missing before James E. Riley came back as head writer. The show
was slowly sinking and viewers werenít watching, but now the
ratings have improved, so he is doing something right.
Allison Sweeny has grown to be a wonderful actress; she is doing a
great job. I like Sami right now, she isnít being too bad. She
still does stupid things but Sami is starting to mellow slowly.
The scenes between Sami and John were awesome, they work very well
together, and I would like to see Sami finally say to John that
she does in fact love him as a father.
Iím not sure if I want a pairing between Jennifer and Patrick.
They seem to work well together as actors, but Iím just not sure
if Iím ready see her with someone new yet! But Iím open to a
Nicole and Patrick romance there could be more possibilities
there, and Iím sure mama Bonnie wouldnít object to her son Patrick
going after the wealthy widow Nicole.
Last but certainly not least. The incredible (Electra Woman)
Deidre Hall had been giving the best performances since the
revelation that she is the Salem Stalker. Deidre is literally
shining on the show right now, with her delivery of her lines to
her fighting down in an open grave. Her physical and verbal acting
is just incredible. I would be so depressed if we lost Deidre Hall
as an actor on Days of our Lives. I know her character had done
horrible unforgivable murder, but if they write her off the show
it would be another horrific loss to the show.
The last thing I want to talk about in my opinion column is all
the negativity that is going around about killed characters. Yes,
it is terrible and horrible that talented actors are no longer on
the show. But Iím starting to hate reading message boards any
more, because like every fourth message is something on the order
of we all should stop watching the show. I totally disagree with
that concept. Donít quit watching it because it isnít going the
way you want the story to go. That is why we watch a soap opera
because of all the drama and twist and turns that goes along with
it. How boring would it be, if we tuned in everyday to see every
character very happy and nothing happening to them. We would get
bored and quit watching.
I really like this storyline and I believe it is for the best of
the show. The best part as well, is just because these characters
are killed right now does not mean they are dead. How many times
have we watched a return of a dead character? Think about the
benefit it would be to bring back one of these characters later on
down the road. Think about all the possibilities that are in
