2005 Our Opinion!

My Opinion by Jamison

This week, in my opinion, made a slight uphill climb.  At least, in some of the storylines.  Others are still crawling along slowly, but making fairly good progress in reaching their conclusions.  Let’s begin.

Brady/Chloe: So Chloe’s now seen that Craig and Nancy were right all along — Brady would love Chloe no matter what she looked like.  Although it’s kind of odd that Brady’s only seeing her without all her scars.  Yes, I know.  It’s the way Brady sees her in his heart.  He sees nothing but her inner beauty, the only beauty that really matters.  And now Chloe finally understands that.  But she’s still very much irredeemable to me.  Oh, and I never watched DAYS on a full-time basis since 2002, but from what I heard, that cabin Brady and Chloe went to — the one that belonged to Isabella, Brady’s late mother — had never even been heard of until this week.  So we’re honestly supposed to believe that it was hers?  Ha!  I think not.

Rex/Mimi/Bonnie/Patrick: Bonnie's attempt to get Mimi out of prison with a nail file was pretty humorous.  Unfortunately, Patrick almost got arrested for it.  But he managed to sweet-talk his way out of it, getting off with only a warning.  Quite the smooth talker, my boy Lockhart is.  I give kudos to Rex and Patrick for being the first to finally realize just what evidence could be used to clear Mimi.  Thinking of looking at the footage on the surveillance camera was genius.  Now, Mimi’s out of prison and out of danger (and away from that madwoman Brenda, who gave her a shiner that’ll last her for weeks).  It’s getting pretty close to crunch time, though.  It’s time to be honest with Rex now that he (and Eric Winter) are leaving Salem two weeks from Tuesday.  She almost told him about her abortion, but that call from Belle’s loft came, so there we go.  More time to lie to Rex.

Shawn/Belle/Philip: Pardon me for nitpicking, but shouldn’t Philip be doing his recovery in a hospital, like he was supposed to be doing when he got back to the States?  And when they were on the plane, shouldn’t someone have had his medicine and wheelchair nearby?  Okay, enough with that.  I think Shawn’s right that Belle’s lying to herself and Philip, but he doesn’t have to bug her every ten minutes about it.  I’m a strong Shelle supporter and will remain that way no matter what.  I’ll just be waiting for the moment when Belle finally stops being flighty and just thinks about what she’s doing with her life.  Does she really want a marriage with love only on one side of it?  Or does she want to be with a man whose feeling she actually returns?  As long as she thinks the right choice is the former, she’s not going to get her happily-ever-after anytime soon.

John/Marlena/Roman/Kate: So Roman now knows that Marlena is pregnant.  Unfortunately, he’s not the first one she told.  Mimi was.  (Good move, Marlena.  Let the first person you tell your secret to be someone this doesn’t have anything to do with.)  And she can’t get up the backbone to tell John the truth that her baby and the affair it resulted from.  I used to love Marlena.  I really did.  But if she doesn’t do the right thing really soon, I really won’t care for her all that much anymore.  As for Roman, the only thing I can compliment him on is seeing his civility toward Patrick this week.  He used to treat him just as badly as Bo and Jack.  But this week, he didn’t go on an “I don’t trust him” tirade.  He treated him the way he deserved to be treated — like a person.  But Roman asked a pretty stupid question, too, by asking if Marlena’s pregnant.  If she craved all the things she craved in her past pregnancies, then that should’ve been a dead giveaway.  I won’t get started on our fallen hero, John.  There are no words for his hypocrisy or stupidity.  Let the records show that I begin to despise Kate with every passing second I see her on my TV screen.  No offense to Lauren Koslow (Kate), but I can’t stand this shrew of a woman anymore.  She’s constantly attacking Sami and Shawn, the daughter and nephew of her husband, continuously, sometimes deservedly, sometimes not.  She schemes up horrible schemes, executes them easily, and gets away with them.  And she looks just terrible in her scenes with John.

Bo/Hope: Again, they were only on one day this week, but that’s all right.  I saw those flashbacks of them on the original Fancy Face, and they more than made up for it.  Add in all those other flashbacks I didn’t see before — I’m guessing from when they came back to Salem in 1990 — and the pot was sweetened indefinitely.  However, they should be spending more time worrying about their bail-jumping son, not making love on their new boat.  (Love the Fancy Face III, though.)

Chelsea/Max/Abby: Apparently, what Max and Chelsea did last week was have oral sex.  Wonderful.  (And I mean that sarcastically.)  I really don’t see what Max has to offer this canvas yet.  So far, he seems like nothing but a sex-crazed cad of the young adult variety.  And does Chelsea really believe that just because Patrick berated Max for taking advantage of her, he’s jealous of him?  Just your typical — or maybe even atypical — teenage naďveté.  Oh, well.  And I really want to know how Abby’s going to fit into this storyline.  Maybe she’s the one TPTB want to put with Max since they’re both not related.  If Chelsea turns out to be Georgia, then Max will be her uncle.

Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: Jack and Jennifer’s little outing was beautiful, hindered only by the fact that he has less than three months to live.  I find it shocking that he still insists on keeping it a secret from Jennifer.  If he was able to tell her about the impostor without dragging the secret out and then getting tested for STDs sooner rather than later, you’d think he’d be willing to tell a secret as big as this one to his wife, as well.  I came so close to losing it when Jack had that short anti-Patrick fit.  I agree with Abby.  “Where did that come from?”  She wasn’t even mentioning his closeness to Jennifer!  So it really does look like the “right” to bash Patrick whenever he’s around or whenever his name comes up has been passed from Bo to Jack.  Lovely.  (Again, sarcastic.)  I think Frankie still has feelings for Jennifer, no matter how much he tries to deny it.  But . . . I can’t really say much about him yet.  Only that if he digs up any dirt on Patrick and takes him down with it, I will be very, very unhappy with him.

Sami/Lucas/Nicole: Sami’s finally figured out the way to get to the bottom of her nixed nuptials to Lucas — find Eugenia and make her talk.  Sami knows that if she can get proof of her setup with Brandon by any means at all, she and Lucas will be together again and she’ll have finally excised Kate from their lives.  Of course, while she’s getting ready to put this plan into motion, she’s also being forced to keep covering for herself with Lucas about Stan.  Now, to make matters worse, she can only ensure the keeping of this secret by helping Nicole keep Brady and Chloe apart.  Forget it, Nicole!  You lost!  Move on!  Austin’s returning soon, so try snagging him!  I loved that Lucas advised Nicole about getting help from AA.  Finally, a realistic element to the show.  Of course, we all know Nicole won’t take that advice!

Next week, Eugenia’s back!  Mickey finally makes his choice!  Shawn is arrested!  And a couple many fans have been rooting for to get together finally shows signs of a pairing with a surprise proposal (not one of marriage, but you’ll see what I mean)!  So tune in next week.  I know I will.

And that’s just what’s on my mind!
