Days Opinion 9/22/06 by
I will be the first to admit that I hated Chelsea, and I never
thought that I would ever care for this character. In an unexpected
turn of events I am starting to like Chelsea. I think we are seeing a
different side to Chelsea that could lead her down a better road to a
good life. I still hate all of the whining she does about how
horrible her life is and about her community service. Chelsea should
be very grateful that she is not in jail because only then would she
have a little bit of right to whine all the time.
The writers have made many of the viewers start to feel bad for
her. Chelsea may not have handled the Clairís paternity the best way,
but she did do the right thing. The better approach would have been
to show Lexie or another doctor the file before just slipping it in
Shawnís hospital room. I think Bo, Shawn, and Philip will have to do
some major butt kissing when Chelsea is cleared of these alleged
The way Bo, Philip, Shawn, and Max have treated her with this
entire paternity situation is horrible and I hope that we see these
characters beg Chelsea to give them another chance with them. I donít
think that will ever happen but you never know.
I hate the fact that Chelsea is the one who let Clairís paternity
out of the bag. I am happy that the truth is out; nevertheless, I
just wish Mimi had been bold enough to tell everyone the truth.
Knowing the Farah Fath is leaving the show I was hoping that she would
be able to redeem Mimi, but I guess it wonít happen this way. We will
have some interesting situations coming now that Shawn knows that
Clair is his daughter.
Lexie and Abe
I do not trust Abe at the moment. One day he tells Tek that he
wants nothing to do with Lexie, and then we see Abe and Lexie back
together again, trying to work things out. I am not sure if I would
like to see these two reconcile. I definitely do not want to see Tek
and Lexie together either.
From the very first moment Patrick has arrived in Salem we though
he to be bad, then good, and then unsure. I will say that I have
always like the character of Patrick. I will agree with a comment
Jamison made many months back that Patrick and Billie were a great
couple. Looking back on those two they really were great for each
Personally, I do not believe that Patrick killed Eve. I do think
that he is involved in this entire mess, but think that the gloved
hands are now turning on each other. Now that the Salem police
department is getting close maybe the people involved are trying to
cause speculation, which will lead nobody behind bars. The men I
think who are involved are Patrick, E.J., and Tek. I think Tek will
be the one who killed Eve.
Well if the rumors are true and Stefano is returning to Salem what
will that mean for Marlena? Marlena is supposed to leave town to
start up that womanís clinic, will Stefano be waiting for her. In a
way I hope Marlena does meet up with Stefano again, with a possible
kidnapping. But I hope old Marlena resurfaces and protects herself.
We really need to see Salemís strong women make a quick return.
Well, there are more rumors flying around about E.J. and his
sexuality. If E.J. does in fact turn out to be gay. He will be the
first main character to be gay on Days that I can recall. We do have
Harold who is mentioned by Jack and Jennifer here and there, but
Harold was never a main character he was a supporting character for a
Jack and Jennifer storyline.
It would be interesting if Days tackled this story, because it
would be interesting to see E.J. develop. This means though if he is
gay that a great pairing of Sami and E.J as a romantic couple is out
of the question. Partners in crime would be more like them, and maybe
a little more interesting now that I think about it. I guess we will
find out shortly.
Jennifer and Jack
I havenít got to see Jack and Jenís final day yet, and so Iíll
comment on that episode in my next column. These past few weeks have
been such a well-deserved blessing for the fans, as well as for the
actors. These were the scenes that should have been made months ago.
These two chasing the story and getting into trouble are what we all
have been waiting for. It is a shame that these characters are gone,
but at least we did have a moment of genius to see why this couple has
always been a super-couple.
I wanted to cry for Frankie. I have been a huge Jennifer and
Frankie fan even though I knew that Jen is meant to be with Jack.
Lexie said it all when she said Frankie is one of the good guys.
Frankie made the most selfless act of love that any character has ever
has. He saved the life of his ďwifeísĒ husband to make her happy. No
woman could ask for a better partner than Frankie. It would be great
for Frankie to find love before he leaves the show, so we donít think
he is completely miserable.
Billy Warlock is a phenomenal actor and Days is making a huge
mistake letting him go. There are many characters for him to get
involved with on the show, hmm like Billie.
I had to save the best for last. Billie has been a selfish person
for many years. But that all came crashing down when she took the
stand in Bo and Hopeís divorce proceedings. Billie admitted to
everything she has done to keep Chelsea out of jail and Bo and Hope
apart. To tell Hope that she made it appear that Bo and her had slept
together, just to keep Chelsea out of jail had to be tough to say and
hear. Billie may not deserve to be forgiven for all the stunts she
has pulled, but I am rooting for her now. Billie has finally matured
and I will say that as long as she stays out of Bo and Hopeís way she
will be one of my new favorite characters.
Hey, itís just what I think!
A face can launch a thousand ships, but one voice can make a
difference. E-mail me at
P.S. Jamison you did an amazing job writing Days opinions. We may
not have always agreed on certain things but I always enjoyed reading
