My Opinion by
looking really good on the DAYS front. The best theyíve ever been
since the island storyline. Except for probably Marlenaís storyline,
I think DAYS will be all right for the next few months to come.
Brady/Chloe: They were only on one day this week, but thatís
okay. We still got some romance from them. Again, Chloe looked ready
to wimp out on Brady because of her scars, but after talking to Dr.
Travis, she now knows for sure that no matter what she looks like,
Brady will always love her. Good for you, Chloe. Letís see you
show that to Brady and all of us watching you. As for Brady, he
really got the Salem brain that the men on this show seem to lack and
gave Nicole another well-deserved tongue-lashing. You tell her,
Brady! No matter what she thinks, she is not getting you back
and she never will again! And an even better job getting her fired
from Titan! Now, sheís got nothing left to keep herself supported.
On a side note, Iím glad he mentioned his job at Titan, which we
havenít heard him mention in quite awhile.
Well, thanks to Belle berating Mimi too loudly, Rex finally
found out the truth about Mimiís abortion. Now, Iím sure there are
many of you who donít think the truth shouldíve come out that way. I
think it was the perfect way for it to come out. Mimiís been a
complete coward throughout this whole mess. She wasnít going to tell
Rex herself anytime soon. So Iím glad he found out the way he did.
In fact, Iím also glad at what happened as a result. Just like
Mimi feared, Rex broke off their engagement and left town for a job he
was offered in Chicago. Now, two things baffle me about this.
Firstly, when the hell was he offered the job in Chicago? He never
mentioned it until just before he left. Secondly, how on Earth did he
get all his stuff moved out of Shawnís loft so fast before he left?
Well, I wonít think too much off that. As long as heís gone now.
Iíll miss Eric Winter (ex-Rex) a lot, but I wonít feel the same way
about Rex. He just got way too stupid for my liking. As for Mimi,
well, I found myself saying to my TV, ďCry all you want, you little
coward. I donít feel sorry for you one bit.Ē Which I didnít.
Farah Fath (Mimi) really nailed the emotions very well, but I still
have no sympathy for Mimi. She knew this would happen if Rex
found out the truth from someone else, and it did. She brought all of
this on herself. Donít blame Belle, blame yourself. But I did
like the way you railed on her, calling her a hypocrite for keeping a
secret from Philip just like you did to Rex.
Shawn/Belle/Philip: Belle decided to tell Philip the truth ó that
sheís still in love with Shawn ó as soon as heís strong enough. It
seemed like a good plan. Except . . . lo and behold, sheís pregnant
with Philipís baby, and that changes everything. As far as everyone
knows, itís Philipís baby because neither Shawn nor Belle remember
their night of lovemaking in the barn. But Iíll bet itís actually
Shawnís baby from that night, not Philipís. It has
to be. But if Belleís going to keep being self-righteous and decide
to stay with Philip, Iíd like to see Shawn get with Mimi. It really
is his only other option now.
John/Marlena/Roman/Kate: Thanks to Samiís little blame game from
last week, Marlena got overexcited and lost her unborn baby. And even
worse yet, she went into cardiac arrest soon after and woke up with ó
wait for it, wait for it ó amnesia. Oh, God, spare us all! What is
it with amnesia on soaps these days? In the í80s and í90s, amnesia
storylines were fun, but now, theyíre just old and overused. I give
Sami no credit whatsoever for her attempt to reunite her parents by
naming Roman as the man her mother loves. I give John no credit for
starting up his fight with Roman. I was ready to throttle Kate when
she told Shawn that only family was allowed in Marlenaís cubicle. Uh,
pardon me, Kate, but you arenít family, either, are you?
Didnít think so. But I give Roman props for telling John that he made
love to two of his wives and now experienced the pain of his
wife getting pregnant by another man. However, if he keeps up this
concern for his ex-wife, not his current wife, heís going to
run his marriage right into the ground. Kate told him that very thing
this week, and I actually gave her a huge amount of credit for
that, calling out her husband on his hypocrisy.
Lucas/Sami: Like I said before, I do not approve of Sami trying to
reunite her parents the way she did. She needs to start acting like a
woman, not a child, and accept that her parentsí marriage is over.
They will never be together again. Unless a new writer who
actually loved Roman and Marlena comes along and puts them back
together. But she deserves props for saying that if she proves that
Kate set her up, Lucas will have to beg for her forgiveness, because
he will have to do that.
Didnít see them much this week, but that one day I did see them
on was fairly peaceful. I have no gripes at all, except that I just
know the guy spying on them is working for Tony. He just has
Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: Itís been confirmed ó Jack is going to make
Frankie his replacement when he dies just so Patrick wonít have
Jennifer. Honestly, Jack, I just donít think itís necessary now that
heís getting cozy with your friend, Billie. (Iíll get to that
later.) Like I said last week, I applaud Jack for taking initiative
to get things started right away. But I have to give him two thumbs
down for the part of his plan that is being done simply out of malice
toward Patrick. Now, Iím probably going to take some brunt from this
(hey, none of you, except for Justin, ever E-mail me, so what am I
talking about?), but I actually like Patrick a lot more than I
like Jack. The last few months are clear proof of that. So if TPTB
are, God forbid, planning to kill Jack off because of his
illness, at least I wonít have to see or hear all of his terrible
anti-Patrick comments again. And I really would like to see Frankie
reunite with Jennifer should Jack die (knock on wood!), because the
two really do appear to have quite a bit of chemistry.
Maggie/Bonnie: I loved their face-off, but I didnít love it when
Bonnie tried to make herself out to be the victim by turning on the
very-much-fake waterworks. Itís obvious she wanted to have one last
shopping spree before her credit cards were no longer useable. And
what do you know? Now, theyíre not.
Patrick/Billie/Chelsea/Max: I have to admit, Patrick and Chelsea
had the moves at that dance contest. No wonder they won so easily.
But, my God, how corny was that comment Chelsea made about seeing how
well Patrick handled his stick, when we knew she was referring to his
. . . well, you know. As for her fantasy about Patrick making out
with her in her new car, thatís all itís going to be ó a fantasy.
Especially now that Patrick and Billie are aware of her crush on
Patrick, all thanks to Max. I was over the moon when Patrick and
Billie, my favorite couple, finally kissed. The only bit of
skepticism I have about this is that Patrick seemed to still be hung
up on Jennifer a few weeks back. Iím not too skeptical,
though, because back in late March or early April, Patrick admitted to
Billie he had some interest in her. So I think itís evident heís been
harboring at least some feelings for her. Furthermore, I know
there are some of you out there who now think that the possibility of
these two pairing up has fizzled out. Mostly because it took too long
and they kept making Billie to hung up and Bo, and Patrick on
Jennifer. Some of you are probably wanting them to try putting Billie
with Frankie. Not happening. Heís a little busy with Jennifer right
now, thank God.
Wayne Northrop returns to DAYS! Bo and Hope get closer to finding
Victor and Caroline. And finally, the moment weíve all been waiting
for ó Kate finally goes down for what she did to Sami! So tune in for
these phenomenal events!
just whatís on my mind!
