Days Opinion 6/30/06 by
Wow, so much has happened since my last opinion article that
it is difficult to find a place to begin. First, let me apologizes to
all of you out there who enjoy reading my opinions. Sometimes life
just throws too many obstacles at a person and they just overwhelmed
with things to do that certain hobbies get pushed on the backburner
for a little while. But it is safe for me to say that I will be
writing more articles, and hopefully they will be weekly.
Alex, I wish I could say that I have enjoyed seeing you
this time around but I cannot. It is very ironic though that he
fell off the cliff because that is how Wayne Northrop left the show
many years ago when he was Roman. The only good thing about Wayne
coming back on the show was seeing him and being reminded of a time
when Days was at the top of its game. I always enjoy seeing faces
from the past return to the present. But could he really be gone?
Frankie and Jennifer
I do agree with Abby that Jen was moving a bit fast with
Frankie. It doesn’t seem as if too much time has past since Jack’s
“death” and no she shouldn’t mourn Jack the rest of her life. I
just think Frankie and Jennifer could have waited a little while
before deciding to get married.
I have to say that Frankie was handling himself very
well considering the fact that his new bride’s dead husband came
back from the dead. Just imagine loving this woman your entire
life, and then the opportunity comes when you can be with her just
but something like this happens. I really like Frankie and I do
feel badly for him in this situation. He is such a wonderful guy,
Jennifer is very lucky to have him.
Moving on to Jennifer. First, let me say how phenomenal
Missy Reeves is as an actress. The way she portrayed Jennifer when
Jack returned was outstanding. She was so happy to see him and was
able to capture the love, joy, and pain Jennifer was experiencing.
I just hate the fact that Missy could be leaving when her contract
is up later this year. I do enjoy Blue Country’s music so if she is
leaving to support her husband music career then I guess it’s not a
I was a little surprised by Jennifer’s actions. I
figured that she would be so happy to see Jack that it wouldn’t have
mattered that Jack had been alive this entire time. When Jennifer
started to yell at Jack in the church for more or less stalking them
I was shocked a little. That is what made it so realistic was the
way Jennifer was so honest with her feelings. Most people would
have been so glad to have their “dead” spouse back in their arms
again that at first they wouldn’t say those things.
The other line that I loved when Jennifer said to Jack
was the fact that there was a wonderful guy downstairs who is
devastated on his wedding day. This was great for the fact that you
now know Jennifer is in love with two men. Even though she loves
them differently she will not want to hurt either of them.
Chelsea really lucked out this time around thanks to
grandmamma Kate and a crooked cop. At first I was thinking good for
Kate to help her granddaughter out of her jam. Even though Chelsea
is and was irresponsible and caused Zack’s death she truly did not
deserve to go to jail, because she never meant to run him over. This
would be a different situation if she purposely wanted him dead.
The community service and the loss of her
license I completely agree with until she showed up to Jennifer and
Frankie’s part drunk. Did Chelsea not learn anything? Yes, it was
fine to go and celebrate your victory, but to show up especially
around Hope drunk was a very stupid move.
When Chelsea answered the phone and found out that Jack
and Steve were alive and basically hung up on them I would have done
the same thing. Come on, there are sick people out in the world
that would get their kicks to play sick jokes like that. So that
time I do think Chelsea did the right thing. The only thing she
could have done differently would be to tell Billie or Bo about the
Marlena and John
Marlena’s memory of her miscarriage was very emotional
to watch. Even though we all had a chance to put the miscarriage
out of our minds to watch Marlena grieve over her loss was a great
way to bring our beloved heroine back into out hearts. The only
thing I fear with this is the bond that Marlena and Roman will
share. For right now though, John and Marlena are happy and we will
see them back in July sometime hopefully with a terrific story in
store for them.
What do I make of him? Many people have asked me. My
first thought was that he was brought here by Kate to trick Sami
away from Austin. This isn’t the case though, I don’t necessarily
trust this character as of yet, but do think him and Sami have a
little something something between them. This is a good thing
because of Lexie’s situation poor Sami will need someone to turn to,
and I bet it will be E.J.
Mimi and Shawn
Mimi is one of my favorite newer characters. From the
moment she and Belle were shown as teenagers I thought what a great
actress and good character. Well, the actress part is still true
but the character part is in the crapper. If Mimi had been honest
about the abortion and Clair’s paternity she would be the best woman
for Shawn. She is deliberately keeping the secret about Clair’s
real father from everyone. My opinion of her will remain low until
she reveals the truth, and then I hope that all will be forgiven and
she will start to rebuild her life as the Mimi she once was.
It was really dumb of the surrogate woman to go drinking
at the Brady Pub. Did she not put two and two together and realize
the Pub she was at had the same last name of the couple she wanted
to be hired by? So will this mean Belle will fill and get the
opportunity to carry Shawn’s baby? Remember she did tell Shawn that
she wanted to carry his children was that a little foreshadowing?
Now Shawn and Mimi’s marriage is slowly destruction
because of Shawn’s comment about losing the love of his life. That
is a horrible thing to say whether or not you expected Mimi to hear
that. That has to be a punch in the gut to hear your spouse say
Jealous Philip is resurfacing, and I like that. Philip
in his teenage years was very jealous and controlling of Chloe
Lane. It will be great to watch Philip be the same way with Belle.
I guess coming up Philip tells Shawn to stay away from his wife.
Well, at least Philip is starting to realize just how much Shawn and
Belle belong together (even though I don’t agree).
Bo and Hope
It is so strange to see Bo and Hope fighting the way,
and the reason is Chelsea. I can’t believe that neither Bo nor Hope
has figured out that the e-mails that they read were different.
Hope keeps talking about being a detective and knowing when someone
is lying but is unable to figure out that the e-mails were tampered
with. Anther thing that bugs me about Hope right now is the fact
that she believes that Bo would steal evidence. Hope should know Bo
wouldn’t do that. Hopefully, this situation gets settled before the
divorce goes through.
Now, Hope finds out that she is pregnant. Is the father
Bo or Patrick? Bo and Hope fans lucked out last time she was
pregnant. If you remember when she was pregnant with Zack there was
speculation if the baby would be John’s or Stefano’s. In the end
the fans won and a recreated flashback showed Bo as a mime making
love to Hope/Princess Gina. This time around I do not feel the fans
will be so lucky. Be prepared Bo I believe the father will be
Patrick. This then will cause more of a triangle or a quadrangle
because Billie will be thrown into the mix.
Patch and Kayla
It is great to see these two back on the show. I can
remember them on many years ago and really liked them. Now that I
am older hopefully they can live up to the legend that has been made
about them in my mind. The cool thing is that they look just as
they did back then. I cannot wait for the reunion of these two
because it has been a very long time. All we need is Kimberly and
Shane to come back to Salem and it will be just like I remember.
I will say that I am enjoying the flashbacks because I
was young when they were popular and do not remember all of the
scenes they are replaying. Maybe the Soap Network will play some
classic Patch and Kayla shows to allow the newer fans or the ones
who forgets to experience their greatness.
Oh did Lexie receive the shock of her life when Abe
walked in on her and Tek having a party for two. As much as Lexie
deserves what is coming to her. I still feel a little sorry for her
and Abe, more so for Abe. Ever since Abe came back from the island
he has been pushing Lexie away, and Tek has been saying all the
right things for her to turn to him. I am not saying that what
Lexie has been doing is because Abe pushed her away but in a way it
is. Plus, Lexie was seeing Tek when Abe was dead so it would be hard
to just turn off her feelings for him. If she just would have been
honest from the beginning she wouldn’t be in the mess she is in.
I was anxiously awaiting Lexie to blow
Sami out of the water, but with this mysterious gloved-handed figure
I was relieved to know that Sami survived another day. That is a
good thing about Sami she never gives up hope that things will go
her way even when she is on the verge of losing. Even though I
don’t want Sami to end up with Austin or Lucas I still hate to see
Many years ago I would say I honestly
hated Sami. I love the actress but the character did many vicious
things. Now, Sami is my second favorite character on Days of our
Lives, and I find myself rooting for her and her schemes. I don’t
know if many of the other viewers are feeling the same way or not,
but I hate when Sami gets caught.
The Mysterious Figure
Who is this person? Why is this person
allowing Sami to keep lying? There have been a few speculations
about who this person can be. First, many have speculated that it
is Celeste. This would be wonderful because it would give Celeste a
wonderful story: however, Celeste loves her daughter and wouldn’t do
that to her. Another possibility is E.J. but this was quickly
dismissed because the gloved hand was shown during the time E.J. and
Sami were dancing the tango on the pier. Who than could this
mysterious figure be? My guess is a Dimera, maybe not Stefano but
someone in that family.
Hey it’s only what I think!
A face can launch a thousand ships, but one voice can make a difference!
