Days Opinion 10/10/04 by
Wow, I was a little shocked that Mimi did in fact
go through with the abortion. I did think it was tasteful that
they didnít show her at the clinic and going through the
procedure. Abortion is a very sensitive issue, and if we can put
the fact of the abortion behind us for a moment and look at the
reason Mimi did this, is another set of ethical decision. Mimi
felt that Rex didnít want a baby at this time, so she decides not
to tell him that she is pregnant. Then, she makes a huge decision
to do what she did, and she still is lying because now if Rex
finds out that she did have an abortion he would leave her. Mimi
is turning into a regular liar when it comes to Rex. She didnít
tell him she thought she had cancer, and then didnít spill the
beans when she found out she was pregnant, now that she had an
abortion he is none the wiser. Mimi needs to have more confidence
in her boyfriend, because all of these lies are what will destroy
her and their relationship!
I really disagree with all the controversy that
viewer have stated, that this isnít showing a good message to the
young viewers, to get an abortion. I do not believe that the
writers in any way are saying their position on this issue. In
fact I think the story in itself isnít the fact that Mimi had the
abortion, it is the aftermath of what someone will go through
after it is done and over with. Because Mimi is now regretting
having the procedure done, this is where the storyline begins. And
if it is a positive message the viewers want, watching Mimi going
through all of this emotional pain, most likely would stop any
girl from going through with an abortion.
Farah Faith (Mimi Lockhart)
I have just been in awe of Farah Faithís
performance over the past few weeks. Farahís portrayal of Mimi
Lockhart has been exceptionally believable. With all of the recent
recast of actors that Days of our Lives had to endure, as well as
new faces to the show, Farah has proved that she is not just a
Since Farahís debut in 1999 she immediately
entered our hearts as Mimi, Belle Blackís best friend. Although,
for quite sometime Mimi was just following Belle around and had
really no life of her own, things quickly changed when everyone
realized Farah could hold her own storyline.
From being homeless to being manipulated into
helping Jan Spears bring down ghoul girl, (Chloe) Farahís
portrayal of Mimi has been funny, sweet, and very realistic. Farah
has a strong sense of honesty and dedication in her eyes, it is
almost like she isnít acting, that Farah really is Mimi. You can
feel the warmth and pain in Farahís acting, and this emotion is
strongly felt in her current story.
Recently Farah has had to deal with a storyline
that is extremely controversial in nature, Abortion! First you see
the desperation and the hardship Mimi is facing through the
phenomenal acting by Farah. You feel compassion toward her as she
worries that she could be dying of Uterine Cancer. Then you
experience relief that it wasnít cancer, but that in fact Mimi was
pregnant. Farah had a spectrum of emotion during the past few
weeks, and how refreshing it was to see real tears fall from her
eyes during one of the greatest performances we have witnessed
recently. Farah really is at the top of her game, and I honestly
believe that we will be seeing her around for a long time.
Iím going to be a little nit picky for a moment.
John sees Patrick and figures out that he is Patrick, and acts
like it was the very first time he had ever seen him. Well,
wouldnít John have known who Patrick was, or at least have met him
since in fact Patrick is Mimiís older brother and Mimi is Belleís
best friend. Iím sure all through Mimi and Belleís friendship and
sleepovers that John would have known Patrick! Sometimes I think
common occurrences in life get left out of the writing.
One more item for my pickiness is Hope telling Bo
that Zack wanted to go trick or treating as character from Shark
Tales. Hope has been missing for a long time now, there is no way
that Zack could have told his mom that, unless the child has
Celesteís gift of visions.
Bo was so upset finding that his precious wife was
laying naked (but was still wearing a bra) against Patrick trying
to make his body temperature rise back to normal. What happened
when the situation was reversed a few years ago, and Bo was the
one trying to save Billie from hypothermia? Bo tried everything he
could to get Hope to realize what he was doing; itís funny how
characters forget what it was like to go through the exact same
Iím starting to think that Teck is working Stefano
or Tony. It kind of seem that when Bo and John wanted to go to the
island Teck never offered or said he wanted to go along, but as
soon as Brady shows up, Teck is right by his side going with Brady
to the island, or leading Brady to the island. Iím thinking that
Teck was sent to Salem to help send the victims to the island and
also to develop a relationship with Lexie, because Abe in
Stefanoís eyes isnít the man for Lexie.
Nicole or Victor?
With Nicole being a stowaway, she is about to come
face to face with her worst nightmare, her thought to be dead
husband Victor, as well as maybe a ďdeadĒ Collin Murphy. The only
problem with this is where will that leave Nicole, in jail or
dead? With Victor being alive and if he makes it back to Salem it
will be the end of Nicole and Jan. If Victor dies before he makes
it back to the states, Nicole will be home free. Something big is
about to happen to Victor and or Nicole!
Hey, itís just what I think!
