My Opinion by
Sorry this week’s column is so late, just like last week. School has
started, and I’ve kinda had a lot on my plate in terms of homework and
essays — and I’m only in the second week! Anyway, this week on DAYS
wasn’t the best, but I saw some good things, so it wasn’t all bad.
Chloe/Brady/Nicole: Their wedding was the prime focus of the
week. And might I say that I seriously hated that wedding dress Chloe
was wearing. I don’t know where she got it from, but she should’ve
put it back! And she took her whining to a whole new level this week
when, after being told AGAIN that Brady would love her, with or
without scars, she flat-out said she didn’t care. But she finally got
to the church, and that was good. I’ll just bet you her scars fully
healed. Since she’s been whining about them for months, it’s only
natural they’d finally hear them. And as far as Nicole’s concerned,
that girl just won’t accept it, will she? She’s becoming more and
more desperate each second! She lost Brady, there’s no getting him
back after she lied to him for months. (I know, I know!
Chloe’s the one who faked her death. But Nicole went along with
it! That’s all that matters here!)
Craig/Nancy/Joy: The Wesleys were back, making the first of what
may be their final appearances. It was so lovely to see Craig and
Nancy back in Salem, and even more wonderful to see Joy.
Although I could’ve sworn she should just be two-and-a-half now. Hope
said it right — she’d grown up so fast! She must be Zack’s age
now (nice to see him this week, too, I might add).
Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi: I loved hearing Mimi rail right at Belle
this week over her bout with the cramps. On some level, I think she
did do that to get Shawn to notice her. Yeah, it happened for
real, but I think she wanted Shawn to notice her. If she wants Shawn
that badly, she should just tell Philip the truth. Yeah, he’ll be
hurt, but all three of them can finally move on and she can just stop
the jealous looks at Shawn and Mimi and be with Shawn again. Oh, but
no, she has to “do the honorable thing” and “honor her marriage
vows.” Sheesh. The character of Belle Black has become so mousy, she
could practically use a piece of cheese.
John/Marlena/Alex: Marlena has certainly become dependent on Alex.
And Alex is proving to be a sneaky snake-in-the-grass, hoping
Marlena’s memory flashes draw her closer to him. So far, they are,
judging by that kiss Marlena laid on him — and that he absolutely
seemed to love! Man, if this guy were really trustworthy, he
would be pushing Marlena away whenever she kissed him, not willingly
accepting them! Good thing John walked in on one of them and pretty
much began having his suspicion about Alex. Will this storyline
finally make a move forward? Maybe. Oh, and the way Marlena
spoke to Sami at the wedding wasn’t exactly nice, either, but it was
understandable. She didn’t feel comfortable around her. (And who
Roman/Kate: As much as I like Kate hearing everything she needs to
hear from Roman, how many exchanges do we have to see before DAYS
feels we get the point? I get it! They’re over! They can stop
Lucas/Sami/Will: Usually, when Sami blames John for something, my
blood boils. But this week, I kind of agreed with her. It
is his fault Marlena’s treating her loved ones the way she is. If
he hadn’t let Marlena go off with a man she didn’t even know, this
wouldn’t be happening. So I support her in this case. As for
her future with Lucas and Will, well, I think I finally got my fill
for seeing them all together and talking about “being a real family”
this week. Too bad it may not happen now that Tony’s escape plan went
awry. Speaking of which . . .
Ha-ha-ha, Tony! Your escape plan went totally wrong, and now, you’re
back where you belong: BEHIND BARS! Now, all you can do is expose
Sami as Stan. Bart, on the other hand, continues to be funny with his
seemingly unlimited supply of costumes — the priest, the clown, the
stripper, the guard . . . he is an amazing character! I love him to
death! What I loved even more was his brief scene with
Bonnie! Those two seemed to have so much chemistry between them! I
would love it if they put these together, because that’s what
DAYS needs right now — another fun couple that’d be 2005’s answer to
Eugene and Calliope, and Ivan and Vivian!
Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: I know they did something this week,
but unfortunately, I forgot, so I have to say that I’m skipping them.
It was nice to see Abe on again, and even better to see him on the
job, even if he had retired. He didn’t have any bad exchanges
of words with Tek, which is interesting, because he usually always
says something harsh about him. I don’t know much else to say about
either of them.
Bo/Hope/Patrick/Billie/Chelsea: Now that Chelsea knows her family
ties, she wants to cash in on them (mainly her grandparents, Victor
and Kate, who have all the money) all as an act of revenge for them
abandoning her years ago — which wasn’t their fault! Man, this girl
is really driving me crazy right now! Although Rachel Melvin, I
think, is getting much better at the role. Anyway, Hope still seems
to have the Salem brain as she certainly has Chelsea’s number. This
woman just won’t let anything get past her, will she? Too bad
Bo and Billie are so blissful that they know their daughter is,
they’re practically blinded by her faults and are giving her way too
much leeway. And the fact that Bo’s constant suspicion/malice toward
Patrick and his fear that he’s going to do something to Chelsea is
keeping him from seeing his daughter’s true self isn’t really helping,
either. One day, he’s going to find out Hope is right and he’s going
to really sorry.
(really later this week), Brady and Chloe’s honeymoon begins as the
two of them make their departure from Salem! And other things happen,
too, but by now, you’ve already seen a lot.
just what’s on my mind!
