Days Opinion by
My finals are over for the summer, now I can focus more on Days of
our Lives than I have been the past few weeks. Before jumping into
my opinion I want to first say how shocked I was to pick up a Soap
Opera Digest and see the rating of Days has dropping dramatically
since the last time I had read an issue. The last time I had looked
at the ratings Days of our Lives around a 3.0 and just a week or so
ago it was around a 2.5 that is a dramatic fall.
Belle and Phillip
First off let me say I like Belle with a backbone. She is standing
her ground with Shawn telling him that she is going to honor her
wedding vows. Many Belle and Phillip fans may be rejoicing, but not
me yet. It is great they Belle wants to stand beside the man she
married, but she in not in love with Phillip the way she is with
Shawn. Eventually Belle will tell Phillip that it is over and Belle
and Shawn will be together.
From watching Phillips interaction with Shawn I think that Phillip
knows that something is going on. Remember the e-mail that Jan sent
to Phillip? This story is far from over right now. I think either
Phillip knows that Belle still loves and wants to be with Shawn or
he soon will.
Watching Frankie and Jennifer together reminds me of the summers
that I would watch Days of our Lives and seeing these two build a
relationship. I donít recall a lot of their relationship because I
was young, but I do remember Frankie, Eve, and Jennifer. It is cool
when a former favorite returns after all of these years, but
unfortunately I donít see where Frankie is going to fit in at right
now. The only available potential for Frankie is Nicole, Billie, and
Sami and neither of them is worthy of him. If Jack did die then a
relationship with Frankie and Jen would be great, but I donít think
Jack is dying.
Jack thinks that he is going to die and I think he is going to push
Jennifer and Frankie to rekindle their relationship all courtesy of
Tony no doubt. Jack will want Jennifer to move on with Frankie, and
as he believes he is dying he will be torturing himself watching
Jennifer with another man, but what he wonít realize is that
Jennifer wouldnít want Frankie if she can have Jack.
Max is on my nerves at the moment, Iím not used to seeing him as a
character but weíve seen more than we should have between him and
Chelsea. Max is the typical representation of what American culture
portrays young men to be. Driven by their lower appendages. Max will
most likely fall for Abby, when he will be much better suited for
Cassie. Let Cassie reeve up his engine, like she did with all the
other guys in that town including her brother Lucas, but we wonít go
When Marlena told Roman that she was pregnant I was really happy,
which makes me rather nervous about it. I have always been a John
and Marlena fan, but lately John has been getting on my nerves, and
the scenes between John and Marlena have changed. Maybe it is
because we really havenít seen them together and happy for such a
long time, but they were fine on the island. Now that they are both
home and should be celebrating I have a different feeling while
watching them. I donít want Marlena with Roman unless Wayne Northrop
turns out to be Roman when he returns later this summer.
Drop a House on Kate
The one thing I hate worse than a manipulative Kate is a smug happy
Kate. Kate gloating to Shawn that Belle chose Phillip just got under
my skin and I was hoping a house would fall on her. Kate needs to be
put in her place and there is no one currently that is able to bring
her down. Nicole and Sami are struggling with their own battles that
unless Sami is able to prove that Kate set her up with Brandon Kate
will be home free.
The other issue with Kate is the lack of chemistry Kate and Roman
share. Before Roman was ďkilledĒ they did have something between
them a little bit of a spark, but now that they are tighter there is
nothing. If the fans donít see a reason for their couples to be
together then why tune in to a show you are passionate about
watching anymore. It just seems to be in a little bit of a null that
we have to get out of.
So Mimi is cleared on the attempted of Murder of Jan. The video
surveillance saved her butt. Tec and the rest of the police force
werenít doing their job on this one. Even if Mimi confessed to the
crime toward the end of the investigation there was a time when Mimi
told Tec that she was innocent and Tec said he wanted to believe
her. Tec should lose his job on this one it was careless on his part
he seemed too ready to put Mimi in jail.
Mimi and Rex
Mimi needs to tell Rex that she had the abortion right now. As soon
as they come back from Phillip and Belleís loft they need to have a
serious talk with each other. If Mimi would have been honest from
the beginning her relationship might have had a fighting chance. Now
too much time has passed how could Rex forgive Mimi when Mimi donít
even have enough faith in her boyfriend to tell him the truth. I
have said this many times in my column if you can trust the one you
are with to share your deepest secrets how do you expect your
relationship to survive.
Mimi from the very beginning has been one of my favorite characters
and I hope that even when Rex is gone and forgotten that Mimi will
learn from her mistakes and be a great leading lady and be part of a
fan favorite super couple.
Nicole, Chloe, and Brady
I want to clump them all together because I want to see how this
plays out. Iím glad that Chloe finally showed that she is alive to
Brady. I am very disappointed how Brady treated Nicole versus how he
treated Chloe. Chloe is the one that orchestrated this entire hoax.
For Brady to believe that Nicole masterminded this entire thing and
had Chloe and Nancy play along with all of this is preposterous.
Brady needs to be angry with Chloe for lying to him this entire
time, as well as letting him grieve over her death.
Donít get me wrong Brady should be fumed with Nicole for lying to
him when she knew Chloe was alive. Think back to what happened when
Nicole tried to convince Brady that Chloe was alive and hiding in
the closet? How little we forget that it wasnít until later when
Brady didnít want to hear about Chloe anymore did Nicole scheme to
keep Chloe away. Nicole tried to tell Brady many times that Chloe
was alive and he never listened. Nicole better play it smart and
once Chloe leaves and Brady comes back to Nicole she needs to tell
him exactly where to go.
Chelsea is reminding me of Sami more and more. Chelsea wants an
older man named Patrick. Sami wanted an older man named Austin. Sami
got involved with Lucas and Alan to get to Austin. Chelsea is using
Max to get to Patrick. Hmmm looks very similar.
I have mentioned Cassie a few times in this article, because Cassie
is a great character and needs to be used before we lose the actress
who plays her. I have many ideas for Cassie that will give her a
great story come on lets use the assets we got before we bring on or
back new characters that will most likely be in the same boat as
Cassie, rarely seen but very talented.
Hey, itís just what I think!
