Days Of Our Lives Commentary
Deidre was phenomenal as Hattie! The expressions of
bewilderment on everyone’s faces was priceless. Hattie’s austere
personality came shining through. Hattie was fun to see, however,
I saw absolutely no point to this. I’m hoping that when this story
line wraps up, it will all come together, but as of this moment,
bringing Hattie back served no purpose, other than to add to the
confusion. Obviously, Hattie is not the killer, and we are back to
where we started from – Marlena. I was so upset with Marlena
insisting that she attend the funerals, especially since she is
the prime suspect. Kind of tacky, in my opinion. What was John
thinking? Did he think she would be welcomed with open arms? Hope
is still not convinced Marlena is the killer, but with so much
evidence pointing at her, and with all the deaths affecting Hope,
I’m surprised she isn’t biased. Bo certainly seems convinced, and
determined to see Marlena on death row. We’ve been told there will
be one more death – and I’m wondering who it will be. My fear (and
this is pure speculation – I’ve not heard any rumors or spoilers)
is that it will be Bo. I’m basing this on an episode several weeks
ago, where Celeste saw Hope without Bo. Carolyn also told Bo to
keep his family close – so I’m afraid it could come to fruition.
The show, thus far, has been very tight-lipped on the next murder.
I hope I’m wrong – once again, we’ll see.
Bart – oh, how I’ve missed him! Could he get any more funny? I
think it is obvious Steve Blackwell has a good time portraying
this character. I was glad to see him, even if it was only for
such a brief appearance. I always thought it would be cool to pair
him with Bonnie – these two could scheme and bumble their way
through Salem, and I think have a lot of fun with it.
It was so sweet when Lucas comforted Sami. I was a bit confused
when Sami came home and began to tear photos of John from the
album. I thought she did that before Kate and Roman got married?
Guess she missed some. We keep getting teased with a Sami and
Lucas reunion – I say let’s get to it – we’ve waited long enough!
I have to admit that I like the new actress that plays Jan, much
better than the old one. This doesn’t mean that I like the
character. Once again, I was laughing pretty hard as she and
Nicole were building the “love cage.” Another pointless story
line, that in my opinion, is a waste of the viewer’s time. The
writers have determined that Shawn and Belle will be together, and
it is my feeling that Jan and Phil are the obstacles they must
overcome in order to be the next super couple. Neither character
has the depth that is worthy of super couple status, but the
writers are hoping we won’t notice, and will just accept them. It
must have been easy for these two actors to learn their lines this
week – because all we heard was, “you lied to me,” “I’m sorry I
lied,” and “my great-grandmother would still be alive if you
hadn’t lied.” Over and over again, to the point of repugnance!
Shawn wants to leave town and clear his head. I have one piece of
advice for him – get a haircut before you go!
I’m still waiting to see what Patrick’s purpose is. I will be
furious if he takes advantage of Jennifer. I’m still bewildered
that she accepted the fact that Patrick claims to know Jack –
meeting him at a NASCAR race? Seriously – I suspect Jack would
have to be taken at gunpoint to attend a race. And, anyone that
knows anything about NASCAR knows that well over 150,000 people
attend these races – so what are the odds that he would meet Jack,
then be hit by his wife? Slim, to none, I’m guessing. In
Jennifer’s defense, she’s got a lot to deal with, and I suppose
she feels guilty about hitting Patrick, and this is clouding her
Poor Bonnie – unable to get a liquor license. Well – guess she’ll
just need to keep that bottomless flask on hand!
I was impressed that most of the men were able to keep their
shirts on. I’ve had flat tires changed before, and not once did
the man have to remove his shirt. Guess we do things differently
here than they do in Salem.
Over all, it was a very slow week – and absolutely no resolution
to any story line. How I miss the romance Days was once known for.
Just another week filled with Salem silliness. Probably more of
the same in store for next week.
