Another week has gone by, and we still have little
leads on what is going on with this island story. So far we have
seen Alice, Roman, Abe, Doug, and of course Marlena on this
island. I will say, as much as I love the fact that the dead
characters are not dead, it is also a little aggravating that they
are not dead. Think about it we watched them be murdered and then
we cried over the loss of these characters, but they are not dead
and in a way feel a little taken advantage of for believing that
they were killed.
If you think of all the characters that were killed and Salem and
we will see on this island sooner or later, the only character
that really hasn’t had a huge impact on the Days of our Lives is
Cassie. So I think it is only natural to think that more major
characters that we love will end up on the island. Either Bo or
Hope, because so far they are one of the few couples that haven’t
been ripped apart yet. Also, my own thoughts is that Mimi or Belle
will end up on the island, I’m leaning more toward Belle since
Kristen Storms will be leaving in July it would be a perfect time
to make an actor switch. Another character I think might end up on
the island will be Jennifer, just because she is having a ruff
enough time as it is with her pregnancy, it just seems it would
add more turmoil to her life, so throw her on the island.
As much as Bonnie still is on my nerves, sometimes I look forward
to seeing her. Bonnie is the comic relief and it’s refreshing to
watch her scheming scenes over characters crying and suffering
because of the “loss” of their loved ones. So lets see some more
of Bonnie’s crazy daydreams they are always wacky and sometimes we
need to see those scenes among the depression we are watching.
I really didn’t understand Kate telling John about her past as
Stefano’s call girl the same day he had to bury his wife, it just
seemed to be from no where. I would have loved John to say
something on the order of “Kate I’m glad you trust me with this,
but lets talk about it later my wife was just buried.” I guess
that is one way to get nominated for best scene-stealer.
The Jan/Shawn story is not even worth mentioning right now, it’s
just too lame!
I did like the scene when Julie called Hope and told her that her
dad was alive and singing at “Alice’s” I like that they
interrupted Bo and Hope, because in real life when an emergency is
happing or something big, the phone usually rings at the most
Why doesn’t Will just pack up all of his belongings and just move
in with grandpa Shawn since that is the only place he is ever at.
The only good thing is that Lucas and Sami do mention him from
time to time; at least they know where he is. But for once I would
love to hear Grandpa Shawn say, sorry Sami I can’t watch your
child I have other things I need to do.
I do like the new opening music it is similar to the old theme,
but with a “twist”. Hmmm does this new music have something to do
with the “twist” that is currently playing out?
Finally, I believe that Crystal will be an asset to Salem. She is
already cracking my up. Telling Nicole to make an adult movie with
Brady. Grandmothers’ sleeping with their step-grandsons was
shocking to hear, but very humorous since in fact Nicole would
love nothing more than to be with Brady.
People everywhere disagree with my thought that Lexie is somehow
involved in this bizarre plot, because she would never do that to
Abe. Which I agree that Lexie most likely would not do that to
Abe, unless she knew that he would be returned to her, or that she
would be reunited with him at some point.
My last thought is what Marlena said to everyone in Alice’s island
house. “What if we are the ones who were spared and the people
left in Salem will have something worse happen to them?” That was
a very interesting comment. If it is in fact Stefano we all know
how he wanted Marlena, could this be what this island story is all
about. Or could it be a way to put Marlena back with Roman, and
pair John with Kate?
