2005 Our Opinion!

My Opinion by Jamison

I received an E-mail from Justin last week, saying that he will no longer be able to write opinion columns for this site. So that makes me the official opinion writer for this site. At least where Days of our Lives is concerned. So enough small talk. Let’s get right into this week.

Nicole/Chloe/Craig/Nancy: I was so happy to see Kevin Spirtas back again as Craig. I’ve missed him so much since he left in 2003. He and Patrika Darbo (Nancy) still have the same great chemistry they’ve always had. And I loved Chloe’s nightmare about her face melting in front of Brady and her parents. (Even I could see that was CGI animation.) I’m glad the powers-that-be were smart enough to remember that Craig and Nancy have another daughter (Joy) and have them mention her. But where is she? Why didn’t they bring her back to Salem, as well? I pretty much laughed at Nicole’s disgust of how much blood there was during Chloe’s operation. But I am mad as hell that she didn’t get caught for “forgetting” to sterilize the equipment. I don’t know why she thinks she will hold onto Brady this way. Quite the opposite. This whole fiasco she’s caused will simply make Brady and Chloe’s bond stronger. It’s as simple as that. However, I have to praise her for at least being remorseful about what she’s done.

Tony/Bart/Sami/Philip/Shawn/Rex/Brady/Lucas: So the “Four Musketeers” got ambushed and captured by Marines. So did Sami/Stan. But fortunately for her, some of Tony’s men had infiltrated the Marines and helped her escape. I loved seeing Tony crumble when he thought his plans were ruined. But I was back to being angry at him again when he found out they (Shawn, Rex, and Brady) escaped the Marines, thanks in part to Lucas, and was content that his plans were back on track. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the men got caught a second time, this time by mercenaries. They reunited with Philip, who actually seemed to be willing to make inroads with Shawn. (But for how long?) Sami/Stan took a bullet from Lucas without knowing it was he and clamored for his head. Imagine the look on her face when she saw that he was there, as well. Now things are going to get good.

Mimi/Belle: Like I said last week, I have no sympathy whatsoever for Mimi. Even less so after the decision she made this week. She really thinks that by pleading guilty and going to prison, Rex will never learn about her abortion? Then she is a silly little woman. Since the abortion storyline began, I think we all saw the real Mimi Lockhart. She’s nothing but a coward. This decision of hers proves it in spades. This decision is not only cowardly, but it’s also completely immature. Who’s to say Rex won’t visit her in prison and he won’t insist on seeing her no matter how much she tries not to let him? No matter what happens to her, the truth will come out, and Rex and Mimi will be through because of the lies she told him. Belle might as well stop trying to convince the coward that this isn’t right now that she’s been arrested, because it’s not going to do her any good.

Jack/Jennifer/Abby: Abby’s birthday party was wonderful and the scenes were well-written. Seeing the Deveraux Family enjoying a happy occasion together was pretty much the one bright spot of the week, so I have nothing to gripe about.

Abe/Lexie/Tek/Celeste: I now know what to say about Abe’s blindness/impotency storyline. It’s not as good as I’d hoped it would be. If they were this desperate to give the Carvers a storyline to please the viewers, they could’ve at least taken the time to pen out something exceptional and never done before. Instead, we get Abe wanting a divorce from Lexie just because he is unable to make love to her. Come on, Abe! Marriage isn’t just about sex! It’s about love and trust, as well. Those are the two most important things in a marriage. As long as Abe and Lexie have both of those, then sex doesn’t necessarily matter. But if Abe is that desperate to make love to Lexie, there are treatments for his problem, right? Anyway, Celeste is back! Great! I love Tanya Boyd, her acting, and especially her accent. Her visions came back in full force, as well. And I think I know what her visions regarding Jack and Jennifer are. (Hint: Billy Warlock!) I don’t know what she sees that is so bad about Tek. I mean, he’s a great man. He couldn’t possibly do any wrong to anybody. So what could be up with him? I guess we’ll have to find out. . . .

Bo/Hope/Roman: I wish Hope would stop repeating the same thing to Bo. It’s not entirely his fault that Shawn is in a war zone trying to save Philip. Shawn did it all on his own. She should stop threatening to leave him, also, and just do it. That should give him a wakeup call. I hate seeing that Hope has been reduced to this insecure woman and isn’t the same strong woman she was before. On a side note, I loved Bo and Roman’s reunion, and Peter Reckell (Bo) did a good job of portraying Bo’s emotions of founding out about his parents’ “deaths.”

Billie/Chelsea/Kate: So we got some Billie/Kate interaction this week. Was anyone really surprised that Kate was happy to hear about Bo and Billie making love and Hope seeing them do it? Not me. She’s so adamant that Bo and Hope are broken up just so that Billie can get back with Bo. It’s not gonna happen, Kate. It’s not gonna happen. And hey! Sounds like Kate is in love with two men. No surprise to me about that. She fell in love with John, and now it’s impossible for her to turn her feelings off. You know, that scenario. As for Chelsea, well, she's finally found out her parents are dead. Rachel Melvin played off emotions very well. That was good. What made it even better was seeing Billie console Chelsea (whom we all know just has to be Georgia). I look forward to seeing the bond between Billie and Chelsea continue to grow over the coming weeks.

Mickey/Maggie: All I have to say about them is that I want their situation with Bonnie resolved.

Alice: I’m glad that she was on this week! Frances Reid (Alice) is as beautiful as always!

Next week, at long last, we hit the climax of the POW storyline. Sami turns on Tony because he captured Lucas! Plus, all of Salem finds out Tony’s alive and well! It should make for some long-awaited good viewing.

And that's just what's on my mind!
