Almost Time for Days to Return!
Wow, these two weeks without Days of our Lives have just flown by.
The Olympics is just about over and we will be back to original
television programs. I hope you all enjoyed watching the Summer
Games the United States didnít do too bad this year.
For me personally I have missed Days dearly, especially since the
previews that Days showed before they went on their hiatus, it is
looking like some great episodes are heading our way. But first
lets talk about what has been going on with days before the break.
is up with all of the physical abuse everyone is doing? First, we
had John attack Crystal and punch her in the face, when she wasnít
even a danger to him. Then we have Sami of course throwing a vase
of flowers at Lucas. Maggie had slapped Tony across the face, and
now Patrick punched Hope to knock her out. Iím sorry but this type
of behavior is appalling. If it continues we will have to change
the name of the show to The Days of our Assault and Battery!
Sami, Kate, & Lucas
came to Samiís door and started the childish remarks and then fake
cover-ups were cute. These two actresses work extremely well
together, they play off each otherís lines perfectly, and I canít
imagine any other actors playing the role of Sami or Kate.
I enjoyed Lucasí proposals to Sami at the
Penthouse Grill; it was romantic, funny, and cute! First even
though Sami is high maintenance, she had a point saying not to
just rush into the proposal like he did when they arrived. It was
charming that Sami told Lucas that the night was still young he
could try again, just by that comment he should have known that
she wanted to marry him; she just wanted this grandiose setting.
Remember when she was going to marry Austin and she had her
Grandma Caroline carry a boom box around as her and her family
paraded around the casino? Sami always wants to be the center of
I will say kudos to Bryan (Lucas) for having the
balls to sing, he wasnít that bad either. At first I thought oh,
this is going to be cheesy, but it was sweet and fit the mood of
the proposal beautifully. The flashbacks were placed in just at
the right moment, and itís amazing that after all of these years
they just now realized that they love each other.
It was also great to incorporate Julie into Lucasí
proposal, I love when the younger characters ask for advice and
guidance from the older characters. How sweet it was that Lucas
asked what Doug would have done if it were him doing the proposal,
great job Days!
Another little comment I have given
some thought to; since Kate isnít using Romanís house, maybe it
will be time for Kate to make peace with Sami and allow Sami and
Lucas to move into Romanís house. This will allow Lucas and Sami
to start their life together, if not of them then do it for Will.
I honestly believed that Roman would have left the house to Sami
and Will after he ďdiedĒ. Kate has enough money to live wherever
her little heart wants.
really disappointed that Abby hasnít returned home from camp yet.
Lets face facts here. Jack is ďdeadĒ and now Jennifer is ďdeadĒ at
least to those in Salem. Shouldnít Laura (which by the way is an
excellent chance to bring her back), Jo, or Vern be going to get
Abby since both of her parents are gone? This is also a great
chance for a Mike and Carrie return. Here is a storyline for you
writers: Mike and Carrie return home to Salem from Israel, with an
almost adult Jeremy, to raise a rebellious Abby who is bitter at
the world, because of the loss of her parents and unborn sibling,
hey Iíd watch it!
I honestly do not believe that Tony is behind the island at all,
(I could very well be wrong) but it is kind of suspicious that he
did in fact break the communication device that Roman had made.
Tony just might have other ulterior motives since he has arrived
on the island, but I would be surprised if Tony was in on the
island scheme. A few reasons why I donít think he is in on it is:
One he loves Cassie and Rex, if he is behind this he would have
brought Rex with him or left Cassie behind. The second reason is
if Tony wanted revenge on the captors then he should have stayed
in Salem and watched them on a camera instead of being right along
Finally Mimi has her own storyline that doesnít revolve around
Belle. Mimi is a strong character and Iím ready to see just what
she can do with her own story. Now whether she has uterine cancer
or not, I can only imagine how scared a woman would feel going
through a scare like that. Mimi is a great character, hopefully we
donít lose her on the show it would be a immense loss.
Kate & John
Wow, those scenes on the roof were very intense you could almost
fry an egg on the two of them. I am a little shocked that John is
about to have sex with Kate, just for the fact that Marlena wasnít
buried too long ago, and of course her body is missing. Now of
course you shouldnít wait forever to move on with your life when
your spouse dies, but for a man totally devoted to his wife like
he was, it is just a little shocking. Just think of the great
scenes to come when Marlena and Roman find out just how close
these two have become, and vice versa!
has been rescued from the cliff! Everyone lets do a little happy
dance and then cross our fingers that we never have to see
Jennifer ever again dangle from any bridges or cliffs anymore. I
was interested in the fact that she is hallucinating and thinking
that Patrick is Jack. I was waiting for Jack to walk in the cave
at any moment and catch the smooch between these two, but it
hasnít happened yet. In some of the rumors I have been hearing is
that Jennifer has a baby boy and a baby girl! Although I havenít
heard it to be the truth yet it is something to ponder.
He is still trying to
shift his weight around and let everyone know that he is still the
acting police commander, sorry but he isnít. Also wasnít he in the
process of retiring when he got ďshotĒ? He seems to be a man that
has to be in complete control of everything, and it is bugging him
that he canít control this. The more Abe is being bossy the more
Iím not caring for him anymore, which is very sad because Abe has
always been a good guy. Like I have said in previous articles, I
think the island story is going to add some much needed character
depth to some of the stagnate characters.
Many people have
noticed a lot of errors on Days lately. First when Bo and John
were talking to Celeste, John had apparently called Hope
ďKristianĒ (which is the actress name who portrays Hope. I for one
donít have the tape nor do I recall if he said it or not.) The
next big ďmistakeĒ Patrick had told Jennifer while he was trying
to rescue her that he hoped Lexie made it back with the others.
(Again, if it was said I didnít catch it nor do I have that
episode on tape to review it. In honesty, if it was said I think
he meant to say Hope, but then again is it a clue?) Finally Brady
called Bo and Phillip his brothers when they are his uncles. So
for all of you who donít know that family tree Iíll try to explain
it the best I can. Isabella and John are the parents of Brady.
Victor and Caroline are the parents of Bo, while Kate and Victor
had Phillip. Isabella is Victorís daughter as well, which would
make Bo and Phillip her half brothers, so they would be Bradyís
The last bit of information on mistakes was that
Shawn had said the profane F-word in one of the scenes when Jan
was taunting him. I have watched that episode a few times and the
only f-word I heard was freaking so I think it was just a
Iím really looking forward to the next few weeks to come when Days
is back on the air again. I hope that is moves quickly and the
island story is not drug out too much longer, or at least I hope
more exciting situations float to the surface to make it addicting
to watch again.
Hey, itís just what I think!
