My Opinion by
didn’t make me too late this week. I got it all out of the
way. Anyway, this week on DAYS was almost a disaster. I say “almost”
because we got a few good things, but not very many.
Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi: Might I say that Mimi looked beautiful in
Caroline’s wedding dress. Even Shawn said so. The more times I saw
them together, the more I wanted them to get together. As for
the porn they watched, I don’t think that was something you should put
on daytime television. Philip was willing to blame Sami for the loss
of his leg. No, Philip. You are to blame for that. You
wanted to return to active duty right after you were rescued. You
went onto that minefield. So if anyone’s to blame, it’s you.
And Belle . . . well, I don’t get what was with her thinking it was
too soon for her to go into labor. She’s long overdue. But I will
say this. She seems to be the one person who makes Marlena
remember the bond she shares with her family. Whenever she’s had a
problem, Marlena’s been there, amnesia or no. In some way, she might
the saving grace of John and Marlena’s storyline.
John/Marlena/Alex: After this week, we can all say one thing about
Dr. North — he is evil. Evil, evil, evil. He apparently brainwashed
Marlena into only caring about him so that she’ll remain dependent on
him. Now, that’s John’s fault this occurred. He shouldn’t have told
Alex about the security system in the first place. I couldn’t
believe how much the brainwashing did to Marlena, though. All of
sudden, she doesn’t care about Sami or Belle or John. Just Alex.
Plus, all he has to do is say whatever he wants to Marlena and she’ll
listen. Now, John should try to contact every medical board he can to
get Alex’s license pulled because this method of treatment is highly
unethical. He even found that out from Lexie. Either way, this man
needs to be stopped. But this storyline’s finally getting
intriguing. I hope it doesn’t get dragged on too long, though.
Kate/Nicole: I’ll comment on Nicole first. She honestly believed
Brady would be coming back to her? Delusional, that one. But the
news of Austin coming back to town was wonderful to her. I started
watching DAYS two months after Austin left town, but I’d heard
that they’d been in the process of starting something up beforehand.
I’ve love it if they revisited the Austin/Nicole flirtation
after Austin gets back. Nicole needs a man now that there’s no more
Brady to pursue. I think she and Austin would be dynamic. Anyway,
Kate got into the church disguised as Stan. Too bad no one believed
her when she tried to oust Sami as Stan. At least not until she
produced reports from the ISA. Now, I wonder how she got them?
Probably from Tony. If he’s able to infiltrate legal organizations,
the ISA could probably be one of them, too.
Lucas/Sami/Will: So another wedding’s been ruined for Sami. And
Kate was the one to ruin it this time. The look on Sami’s face when
she broke the mirror was not exactly priceless, but foreboding. As if
the writers were trying to give us a clue that it’d happen. But the
look on her face when Stan showed up was priceless. And good
for her that no one believed Kate. But too bad those ISA reports came
up. I wonder what’s going to happen to her now? Probation?
Prison? Probably the latter.
All I’m going to say to him is how dare he think he has the
right to interrupt Sami’s wedding just for a terror alert? What would
another two minutes have hurt? Caroline was right — she should’ve
been there to stop him. And why didn’t he just grab “Stan”
immediately after he showed himself — the way a real
policeman would act?
Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: Where Jack and his illness were concerned,
fast-forward material. Especially now that he plans to just disappear
and die alone without the family knowing. Cowardly, stupid, and
arrogant, in my opinion. And thus, fast-forward material.
Frankie and Jennifer’s scenes, though, were beautifully played out —
all thanks to Billy Warlock (Frankie) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer).
But from what I’ve been hearing, the part about Jennifer’s
never-mailed letter to Frankie was a history rewrite. That made the
scenes a little bogus to me. But the acting was good, so that’s as
far as I’ll comment.
Abe/Lexie/Tek: The details about Lexie’s affair with Tek may be
revealed now that Lexie knows Alex is aware of it. I’m glad she found
out about what Alex has been doing to Marlena, but not so glad the way
she handled Alex’s blackmail. She should be reporting him to the
medical board (something I think John should do if she
doesn’t) and get his license pulled. Then, we can see a decent
person treat Marlena. So Lexie’s not really being a good friend to
Marlena at this point by allowing Alex to continue his hypnotherapy,
aka “brainwashing,” out of fear for her secret being revealed. The
timing couldn’t be worse, either — now Abe wants her back! At least
the Carvers finally have a storyline.
Bo/Hope/Chelsea: Not much of them this week. But I hate that Bo
was manipulated so easily by Chelsea. Sorry, Bo, but you have to face
the facts — your little girl is a tramp. Hope and Jennifer see
that, you should see that, too. No parent would let their
daughter dress as slutty as that.
Patrick/Billie/Chelsea/Max: I loved it when Billie said that
Chelsea was the greatest thing Bo ever gave her. Even Chelsea
seemed to like hearing that. But of course, she went right back to
lusting after Patrick — her mother’s boyfriend — again, which is
really getting old. Why can’t Chelsea see that he’s just not that
into her? Oh, and by the way, Sami called her out on her slutty
dress, which was slightly uncalled for, but slightly deserved. So she
runs off to the Java Café, meets Max, and after failing to get sex
from him, decides to use him again to make Patrick jealous. My
God, why can’t she see that the right man is right in front of her?
It gets better, though (and I say this sarcastically) — in exchange
for being nice to Billie, now Patrick has to take her out on a real
date. I can only imagine where this is going to lead.
Lucas and Sami’s wedding is over, but Austin’s back (yay!) to pick up
the pieces! So tune in. I sure will.
just what’s on my mind!
