My Opinion by
The weeks on
this show just keep getting better and better! So many storylines are
finally unraveling, which is just what we’ve been hoping for! Also, a
new character was introduced, and a not-so-surprising revelation came
Brady/Chloe: Once again, we only saw Brady and Chloe for one day
this week. And might I say that I was quite impressed by Brady’s show
of loyalty to Chloe. Quitting his job as CEO of Titan just because
Chloe’s worried about him marrying a monster? That is very noble. If
this doesn’t show Chloe just how much he loves her, nothing
Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi: So because Belle is carrying what she
thinks is Philip’s child, she’s officially declared her and Shawn
over, although most of us know that’s probably not going to last. In
the meantime, Mimi is still ranting and raving about Belle for costing
her Rex when she really cost herself Rex. Philip
suggested she try her hand at romance with Shawn, and I must admit, I
was a little bit skeptical, at first. But when I saw the flashback of
Mimi asking Shawn to the dance in high school (which I’d actually seen
once before then), and just how much chemistry was there, I began to
open up to the possibility. If Shawn and Mimi got together, I’d like
that. Besides, it’d make Belle extremely jealous and she just
might realize she let go of something she shouldn’t have. If that
happens, then I hope it’s too late when it does because I really don’t
care much for Belle anymore.
John/Marlena/Alex: I really don’t think that John going around the
world to find some things to jog Marlena’s memory was necessary. I
mean, some things in Salem would’ve sufficed, right? But enough about
that. Marlena still didn’t recognize him or Roman. All
she recognized was Alex. Now, I’m guessing that she recognizes the
guy because he’s the real Roman and that there’s something familiar
about that. But then, if Alex is the real Roman, then who is
this Roman (Josh Taylor’s Roman)?
Roman/Kate: After watching the scenes that led to their
estrangement, I must say I’m impressed with how they were played out.
I agree wholeheartedly with Roman’s choice to split with Kate. She
tried to hurt his daughter without a hint of remorse or regret. Now,
I got so mad when John took Kate’s side about the drugging Sami
thing. Apparently, Roman did, too, which is why he practically gave
Kate to John. Now believe me. In the end, I want John with Marlena,
and Roman with Kate. Unless Alex turns out to be the real Roman, in
which case everything would be changed, as I’d want Roman and Marlena
together. Then I’d say that John could have Kate.
Lucas/Sami: This was the happiest couple of the week, and because
they were happy all week, I don’t have much to say about them.
Except I knew that Lucas would be asking for his ring back to
propose to Sami again. I guess for some sort of renewed engagement.
Loved seeing him tell off Kate at the Java Café. (Is it just me, or
did the Java Café look like what used to be Dot.Com?) Really, it
seems like Lucas and Sami’s happiness is dependent only upon Lucas not
finding out that Sami was Stan, and that may not happen for quite some
time. Nicole’s the only other person who knows, but I wonder if she’s
going to spill?
Bo/Hope/Tony/Bart: I put them all together because they were all
in the same fold this week. Now, the look on Tony’s face when Bo shot
the camera spying on him was priceless. Tony’s obviously losing his
touch. And Bart wearing what I think was a catcher’s uniform was
hilarious! He really wants to protect himself from Hope, whom I was
glad to finally see after her kidnapping last week. Speaking of Hope,
I really hoped she’d have kept the hits on Bart coming. As funny as
he is, he deserves them for helping this psychopath. Seriously, why
is Tony still here? There really is no purpose for him anymore.
Victor/Caroline: Seeing these two on again was like a breath of
fresh air. John Aniston (Victor) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) looked
better than ever! I loved their reunion with Hope, and I basically
just love the fact that they’re on-screen once again!
Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: I was waiting for the moment when Jennifer
would finally figure out that something really is up with
Jack. She’s finally seen that Jack’s pushing her to be with Frankie.
Good girl, Jennifer! Now try and figure out why. And
seriously, Jack, this really doesn’t work for me when you continuously
get all anti-Patrick even when Patrick’s nowhere near your wife. His
desperation to keep Frankie in town was all I needed to see to make up
for that. As far as his plan is concerned, I’d support a
Frankie/Jennifer pairing, but only if Jack dies. If he doesn’t, then
he’s just got to be with Jennifer.
So they’ve introduced us to a new kid named Josh to be a love interest
for Abby. The kid doesn’t look half-bad on the eyes, but he does
look a little dorky, too. Funny the way Abby ended up meeting him —
spilling coffee on him after ordering it. I don’t know how long TPTB
at DAYS are planning to keep him on, but for now, I don’t really
care. I’m just glad Ashley Benson (Abby) has a storyline of her own
Patrick/Billie: First of all, I was saying, “Well done!” to Billie
when she flat-out told Kate that a reunion with Bo was not going to
happen. Let’s see if Kate finally gets the message and stops
meddling in her kids’ love lives. Look what happened because she
wouldn’t stop meddling in Lucas’s. Second of all, when Kate actually
asked Billie if she was seriously considering moving on with Patrick
(she did, right?), and Billie looked over at Patrick with a pretty
thoughtful look on her face, I was so thrilled, because the show
really is doing what I want them do by pairing up Patrick and
Billie. They’d make a great couple. Patrick would have a solid,
viable love interest and Billie would be distracted from Bo once and
for all. However, I believe this new development about Patrick might
end it all. Turns out Patrick really is still working for the
DiMeras, as he captured Bo when he faced off with him on the island.
Maybe it’s a tactic just to deceive Tony and Bart again. Maybe it
isn’t. I, for one, hope it is. I’d hate to see Patrick and
Billie’s still-budding relationship get scrapped because Patrick’s
still loyal to Tony.
the rescue of Victor and Caroline finally happens! Tony finally pays
for his crimes (to some extent)! And at long last, the question about
Georgia we’ve all been wondering is finally asked: Has Chelsea been
Georgia all along?
just what’s on my mind!
