Days Opinion by
Yes, I am still around and writing opinions but not as
often as Iím sure you can tell. My goal is to write an opinion at
least once a month until this current semester is over. What is
horrible and makes it tough for me is that I have to tape Days
everyday because they moved Days to one Oíclock instead of three like
it normally was. Before I was able to catch Days on Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Fridays and then watch the Tuesday and Thursday
episodes during the weekend. But I find it hard to watch five hours of
anything on the weekends and through the week is devoted to my
studies. So hang in with me. Anyways we have a lot to talk about!
Finally Jennifer knows the truth that Jack is
terminally ill, but it took her finding the medicine bottle and her
own research to force the truth from him. That was wrong of Jack to
keep this horrible secret but what to you expect. Now Jack is plotting
his suicide, which open a new can of ethical worms that many viewers
are debating. Should a person have a right to end his or her own life?
Honestly I wrote a paper on suicide last semester and a few years ago
I wrote an ethical debate on assisted suicide. So I am looking forward
to this potential story play out. Even though I know Jack is not going
Lexie and Dr. North
Lexie knows that Alex is up to no good and that he
wants Marlena for himself. Many viewers had the thought that Alex
could be Stefano, but since he is threatening Lexie it is highly
doubtful. Stefano hates Abe with Lexie but Stefano has always had a
soft spot for Lexie. If Lexie truly were a moral person, she would
tell Abe about her moment of weakness with Tek and then expose Alex
for the fraud that he is.
The more flashbacks they show about Alex and Marlena
the more I begin to wonder if he could be Roman. The scenes with
Marlena crying outside of the front door was when Roman found out that
Belle was Johnís child not his, I can remember when this first aired.
That was Marlena and Romanís house and Roman left because he was
unable to for give Marlenaís adultery. Honestly I donít know if I want
him to be Roman but I am curious to see just whom Dr. North turns out
Alex most likely and logically is just an old
boyfriend from the past and their relationship didnít work out. Now
twenty years later he still hasnít gotten over his loss and decided to
take advantage of her delicate situation. Either way it is wonderful
to see this actor again his Roman fans have missed him.
Belle and Philip had a baby girl witch they named
Clair, it wasnít the name I voted for but it is still cute. The show
also gave us another foreshadowing moment if you paid attention.
Victor said to Philip about there is no greater joy to a father than
having a daughter, something on that order. As Victor was saying that
Shawn was in the doorway. Clair should be Belle and Philipís child,
just because it would make everything complicated. Eventually, Belle
and Shawn will get back together, unless Mimi and Shawn become the new
favorite, which is plausible.
Belleís story is fascinating to me, because I cannot
recall, and help me if you know, of another character on the show
going through postpartum depression. I am sure it has been done on
other shows but I applaud realistic stories over far-fetched ones any
day. A lot of Belleís problem is that she is unhappy with Philip and
wants to be with Shawn but she canít so it is manifesting itself
through the postpartum depression.
Belle and Shawn
Why would Belle and Philip want to ask Mimi for be the
Godmother to Clair? First off Mimi and Belle are not getting along
right now. Second with Mimi at them moment unable to bare children it
just seemed kind of cruel to ask her right now. Philip and Belle
should have talked to her alone and told her what they were thinking
before they officially asked her to be a Godparent. Now Shawn tells us
that Mimi doesnít like to be around children. Shouldnít this be
brought to Belle and Philip attention that Mimi isnít the right person
to be doing this at least at this time?
Sami is just the coolest character on the show right
now. Yes she is hurt and horrified that Lucas and Will wants nothing
to do with her, but gee can she bounce right back up like a weeble
wobble. Ever since Austin has returned to Salem Sami has stuck to him
they were magnets. Truthfully I wouldnít mind a brief rekindle of Sami
and Austin romance as long as she doesnít get to obsess over it like
she normally does.
The new Partnership
Nicole is going to be Austinís new vice president and
Sami is also thrown into the mix. Austinís new business is going to be
very successful just wait and see. It may start off on a rocky foot
but watch these three characters will really work well together. Then
when Carrie comes back maybe sheíll get into the harem, oops! I mean
Bo gave Chelsea two hundred and fifty dollars one day.
Then a few days later he chucked over another large sum of money to
her. Where does Bo get all of his money? From what Iím aware of cops
really do not make a huge load of money and Bo doesnít let Hope use
her trust fund money. I also remember a time when Bo told Hope that
money would be tight when they bought the house they are living in.
Roman and Bonnie?
Well, I will say that even though this couple seems
like a strange pairing, I sort of like them together. Roman isnít a
rich man so it is nice to see Bonnie go after a person just because
she kind of likes him instead of what she can gain from the
relationship. I do agree with most of the other viewers that Bart and
Bonnie would have made a much better couple but hey both of them are
single and itís not like they will get married, let them have their
Many people have stated that they are tired of
Marlenaís amnesia story already. Not me! First off there will come a
sad time when the focus shifts from Marlena and onto another
character, which I am sure we will all love. Look at Maggie, Julie,
and countless others whom are not seen very often. These were leading
ladies who once were the stars of the show are very disappointedly
used presently. Marlena still has a huge fan base and as long as we
want to see Marlena the show will have to supply our demand. So I say
if you are a fan of any character take the time to enjoy their current
story because you never know when the tides will change.
Hey, Itís just what I think!
A face can launch a thousand ships, but one voice can
make a difference!
