My Opinion by
I’m late, and I’m so sorry for it. But the good news is that finals
are fast approaching, so as soon as they’re done, I’ll be fully able
to write my columns on time. That said, let’s begin with last week’s
Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi/Kate: We haven’t had all that much
mobility from this storyline. Claire’s still sick, Belle’s still
whining, Philip’s still trying to reassure while crying in secret, and
Shawn’s being there to comfort Belle. The only thing even slightly
interesting here was that Mimi seemed to catch on to Kate, knowing
something was up with the way Kate was supporting her and Shawn. She
forgot all about it when Kate offered her Belle’s job at Basic Black,
but oh, well. Meanwhile, Kate, unable to stop being a meddling mom
for five minutes, decides that since she doesn’t want Philip and
Belle’s marriage ruined by the revelation that Shawn is the father of
Claire, she needs to make sure Philip raises Shawn’s baby without him
ever knowing it and attempts to change Shawn’s medical records to make
it seem like he’s not Claire’s father. I know Kate says
she’s doing this for Philip, but I don’t believe that’s entirely
true. I think she’s doing it more for herself. She clearly
hates Shawn and wants to hurt him in the worst possible way without
him even knowing how he was hurt. And that’s just what she
nearly did. Fortunately for us, a security guard caught her before
she could do much damage. Now, we’re left with the cliffhanger of
whom was called in to see her.
John/Marlena/Alex: Not much to see on this front. Alex
pretty much demanded that John stop calling Marlena “Doc” now that
she’s back with him again. I was with John that he shouldn’t have to
stop doing that, seeing as how he’s not the only one who calls
her that. Again, other than that, I didn’t see much mobility in this
storyline this week.
Austin/Sami/Lucas/Carrie/Nicole: First of all, I was surprised
Sami even cared about Jack’s “death,” considering all she cares about
are Will and herself. Now, getting on the topice, as far as the first
four characters named in bold are concerned, every event that occurred
with them this week led me to believe that DAYS is doing just what
most fans don’t want them to do — they are planning a redux of
the Sami/Austin/Carrie/Lucas quadrangle, this time with Nicole thrown
in possibly for good measure since she, too, is interested in Austin.
But fear not — Ken Corday (I think) said that the goal of the redux is
to not only bring about Austin and Carrie’s reunion, but also Lucas
and Sami’s reunion. Nicole? Well, she’ll return to her old, evil
self after all is said and done.
Jennifer/Frankie: Jennifer is quite frankly one of the most
delusional women I have ever seen so far. At least, in terms of
grieving. I know, Jack’s really alive, but Jennifer acting so upbeat
about it bothered me for some reason. I don’t know. Probably because
I was expecting her to be grieving again over the loss of her
husband. I guess it makes sense, though, that she still thought he
was alive as Jack came back the last two times. Anyway, all
the friends and family who came to the house finally got her to accept
the truth, and she unknowing began doing exactly what Jack wanted —
getting closer to Frankie. But all that and her acceptance of his
death went away again when she thought she saw him in their garden.
Is that Jack’s ghost? Or is that Jack pretending to be a
They were fairly boring this week, serving only to be thankful for
having each other in their lives. Well, that’s not true, actually.
Bo at least grew closer to Chelsea after Jack’s “death” reminded her
of the Bensons’ deaths. Hope actually did something realistic this
week, taking Zack in for a checkup and a shot and visiting Shawn in
the hospital besides. They had a real conversation about Shawn’s life
and Hope seems to have finally accepted that Shawn’s not going back to
school (although I agreed with her that he’s making a big mistake).
So maybe she’ll stop nagging him now.
