2005 Our Opinion!

My Opinion by Jamison

This week had . . . almost no good moments at all, as far as I’m concerned.  The flashbacks the day after Thanksgiving were the one saving grace of the week.

Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi: Shawn and Mimi made love for the first time this week.  I must say, the quirkiness of the scenes leading up to it finally happening had me hooked to their storyline.  And it was so worth the wait when it finally happened.  As for Philip and Belle, they were busy with baby Claire, who got sick and had to be rushed to the hospital.  Now, all you Phelle fans may be happy for now that they’ve had their first child, but unfortunately, the Shelle fans have won out regarding Claire.  I won’t say much else because it’s too spoiler-ish.

John/Marlena/Alex/Kate: I have trouble believing the story Alex told John and Marlena about his past with Marlena.  The primary thing being that he didn’t tell them right off the bat when he could’ve been believed.  I do not like what I saw with John getting a massage from Kate.  While I’m glad that it was used to serve as closure for the Jate fans, I’m not as happy that it was also used in helping Marlena to make her “final” decision (if you already know what’s going to happen, you’ll know what I’m talking about).

Lucas/Sami/Austin/Nicole: Lucas is growing more and more hateful in my eyes.  He has the audacity to tell Sami that if she’s beginning to fall for Austin again, she never loved him (Lucas) at all!  Good thing Sami pointed out something that Lucas should’ve taken into account — he was about to have sex with Sophie right there in his apartment.  And I didn’t like his smugness when it was found out that he’d stolen — he stole it! — the Clear Visage account right back via blackmail.

Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: The spoilers indicated that Jack would be presumed dead throughout the holidays, and looks like he’s going to be just that.  While on his way home from Ogden with some vegetables to put in Jennifer’s cornucopia (anyone know what that is?), his car spun off the bridge because of the slippery ice and fell into the water below, which is filling up his car fast.  On other fronts, Jennifer wondered if she’d ever be able to move on after Jack died and would be lonely for the rest of her life like one of her old teachers.  But Frankie brightened her up by saying that their old teacher met and married their old gym teacher.  They’d been first loves in high school.  That’s Reilly for you — using one of these coincidental stories as a “subtle” way of letting the viewers know what could be happening in the future.

Flashbacks: Since I didn’t watch DAYS in its early years, these were a treat to see.  Some of the early memories of couples like Bo and Hope, Jack and Jennifer, John and Marlena, and even the vintage scenes of Tom and Alice.  I can’t believe how young they all looked and just how much chemistry they all had in their scenes, even back then!  It’s no wonder these couples and characters were loved by so many people!  Forty years this show’s been on the year.  Here’s to hoping NBC throws us several years more!

And that’s just what’s on my mind!
