2005 Our Opinion!

My Opinion by Jamison

Hello, folks.  Again, this week’s column is late, just like last week and the week before.  Homework is running rampant in my third week.  Anyway, this week on DAYS was, if I may be quite frank, okay.  Nothing very good, but nothing very bad, either.  Except for the fact that it marked Thaao Penghlis’s final days as Tony.  At least for now.  Anyhoo, let’s get going.

Brady/Chloe: Last week, their wedding was the prime focus of the week.  This week, however, their wedding was just the backdrop for the happenings of all the other storylines.  And I just knew Chloe’s face would be fully healed.  I relived the early days of Broe via flashbacks, and I loved them.  I feel bad that so many people left during their ceremony, though.  If any of my friends did that to me at my wedding, we’d be friends no longer.  But they (Brady and Chloe) sang a nice duet at their reception, even if we didn’t get to enjoy much of it because of everyone else’s storylines.  The wedding night was lovely for me in that Chloe realized that the whole faking her death thing should’ve been unnecessary from the beginning.  Finally, we got to see Broe for the last time — but I was a bit disappointed that we only saw them making love on their last day rather than getting on a plane to go on their honeymoon.  Oh, well.  Broe got their happy ending, and they’re heading off for their happily-ever-after.

Craig/Nancy: All I have to say about them is that I had idea Kevin Spirtas (Craig) could sing so wonderfully!  And where the hell did Joy go?  She just disappeared in the middle of the ceremony!  For that matter, where did Craig and Nancy go after the ceremony?  Wouldn’t a father–daughter dance have been in order, considering it was their daughter who’d just gotten married? 

Victor/Caroline/Nicole: Nicole’s just not getting it.  She really believes she has a chance with Brady now that he and Chloe are MARRIED?  She can just toss and/or burn those love letters Brady gave her because even those won’t split them up.  Not now, not ever.  I’m glad she helped Caroline after she knocked her over the head with that vase.  That had to hurt!  And I’m glad Caroline cared enough about her life to let her out of the bride’s room.  And I’m glad to see Nico again, too!  It’s been over a year!  Victor’s plan to keep Nicole away (keeping her locked up at Nico’s place, I think) was brilliant, as was his little confrontation with Alex.  He’s only been back in Salem for a short while now, and already he’s reestablished himself as Salem’s force to be reckoned with.  But . . . why were he and Caroline sitting together during the ceremony?  Caroline isn’t even related to Brady, so she shouldn’t have been there in the first place. 

Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi: The only thing I watched was every scene of Mimi confronting Belle for the way she continues to lead Shawn on.  I watched a couple of Shawn/Mimi scenes, too, but I only remembered them getting ready to watch Jurassic Park 3.  Philip looks good with his new leg, though. 

John/Marlena/Alex: Now, this week was watchable for them.  Marlena remembered quite a few significant things, much to John’s delight and Alex’s chagrin.  I used to think that the John/Marlena pairing should just end because of how John’s been acting, but I think I’ve jumped ship again.  The John/Marlena pairing is a beautiful one and deserves to be saved.  Too bad their carriage ride was RUDELY interrupted by Alex.  I think John made his big mistake when he mentioned his security system to Alex.  If he hadn’t, Alex wouldn’t have been able to sneak out of his room and into Marlena’s through his window (gutsy, but dangerously risky).  I just know he did something to her, and I don’t like it at all.  This man is not to be trusted. 

Roman/Kate: Yet another exchange between the soon-to-be divorcees.  Get it through your head, Kate — you brought it all on yourself.  Roman’s not coming back to you.  However, for the first time in months, I agreed with Kate when she called Alex on his chagrin over John spending time with Marlena.  She, like John, doesn’t trust him.  And neither do I.  Pity, too, because with Wayne Northrop in the role, I really thought he’d be in a likable role.

Lucas/Sami/Will: The one significant thing I saw that I’m going to comment about was their three-on-one altercation with Kate.  The very sight of the three of them, united against Kate’s insults being hurled at Sami, were riveting and full of chemistry, and although a lot of you may be thinking that that’s enough, I don’t agree.  Kate’s scheme kept Sami and Lucas apart for months, so Lucas should rightfully be mad at Kate for that long. 

Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: The only thing I liked was Jack fantasizing about dancing with Abby at her wedding.  That was it, though.  All I saw beyond that was fast-forward material.  Their storyline doesn’t belong on my TV screen. 

Abe/Lexie/Tek: Not much to say about either, since they weren’t on all that much, and their triangle wasn’t even addressed. 

Bo/Hope/Patrick/Billie/Chelsea/Max: Hope continues to give me reasons to love her.  She had Chelsea’s number from the get-go and still has it!  Too bad Bo and Billie don’t.  Hope sees the manipulative nature Chelsea has, but Bo and Billie don’t.  All Bo sees is a need to protect his daughter from so-called “threat” Patrick.  Bo, your suspicious-turned-malicious attacks on Patrick are old and extremely tiresome now.  Bonnie said it best — you’re a harassing cop right now.  Good thing my boy Patrick’s so used to it, he doesn’t let it get to him, even though I’d like to see him give “Bozo Brady” (as Bonnie called him earlier) a shot in the mouth sometime soon.  As far as Chelsea and Max are concerned, why is she even dancing with him at the wedding reception?  No way he was invited!  Neither Brady nor Chloe know him!  Him or Frankie, for that matter! 

Next week (really later this week), Lucas and Sami’s wedding begins — and gets blown right out of the water.  Hope you’re tuning in, because I know I am. 

And that’s just what’s on my mind!
