    Deconstructing "Days" from November 19-21:

    This three day week we spent time watching Will and Gabi make what was quite possibly the fastest decision ever on whether or not to abort their baby, we learned Sami can't keep a secret and became a little uneasy when the only town shrink started acting like one of her patients.

    Days94 sounds off:
    Here's a poster rant from our forums: "Gabby being ashamed of her pregnancy and Will proposing to her is so freaking 1950s that it is ridiculous. It makes her look like a stupid damsel in distress. And Will is so stupid. This storyline makes me sick as a woman who was raised by a single mom. You don't marry a man because he knocks you up! What are the writers trying to say? Women can't raise children on their own? This is why men should not write for female audiences."

    Day94 made a few good points. I've found Gabi and William to be very mature about it all and though I’m not discounting the shock and concern the two are facing with their decision whether or not to take the pregnancy to term, or abort, considering each comes with its own set of repercussions, it’s still a little behind the times. I still see no problem in telling everyone the truth about Will being the father. Why borrow trouble?

    Obsessive much?
    Nick is starting to get on my nerves by bringing up Chad to anyone who will listen. Talk about putting Sonny and Will in an uncomfortable position to take sides! Nick needs to deal with his own problems and get Justin involved since Chad's in breach of his contract.

    Family planning.
    Gabi and Will discussed their options at length, especially abortion which costs $350 dollars. Gabi wanted to pay cash but only had $90 bucks after paying tuition and Will only had $48 bucks on him. I guess he didn't save anything from his time working with EJ. Neither had anything in their bank accounts I gather but thankfully Sonny had a few bucks from his register - $150.00 to be exact. Matt wondered, "Why was he asking Sonny for $200 if they need $212? Where would they get the other 12 dollars?" Anyone? Anyone? The whole scene sounded like a math problem Nick could have solved...

    Problem:
    Gabi is twelve weeks pregnant. Gabi and William want Gabi to get an abortion. Gabi only has 90 bucks and Will has 48 dollars, but the abortion costs $350 dollars. Sonny gives them $150.00. They need get this done today.

    Questions:

    a) What angle will Rafe have to cock his fist in order to punch Will into the middle of next week for getting his kid sister pregnant?

    b) Can Sami fit enough pennies in her big mouth to make up the difference?

    Matt and I almost took to drinking during Friday's episode after Will told Gabi they only needed $15 more dollars...


    Friend of Kristen's? (NBC)
    Never let them see ya sweat. Er... too late!
    What to say about Marlena... obviously she shouldn’t have deleted the voicemails from Kristen. Not only is it John’s business but it doesn’t help matters and the truth will always come out. I think she should have answered the calls which could have made for better drama rather than the passive aggression. Deidre Hall, her portrayer, told me last Thursday in a Days Of Our Lives Twitterchat that Marlena’s biggest concern and fear right now was that nobody will believe her about Kristen’s schemes. It’s interesting that this is her biggest concern and not what Kristen will do to her and John.

    Do you think John was a little over-the-top with his anger toward his wife?

    I love that Marlena also thinks Kristen hired the muggers to attack Brady. Consider it. They ran off as she was dialing 911 instead of grabbing her phone and purse and running! What are your thoughts? Vote on whether or not Kristen hired the muggers.

    Some have considered maybe John and Marlena are working together to make it look as though Marlena's going off the deep end in order to catch Kristen in one of her schemes. I like that idea and think anything is possible!

    Random... Eileen Davidson (Kristen) participated in another Twitterview last week and told us, "Kristen can have any Black she wants. She thinks." Uh oh!

    Random... Did you see chemistry between Nicole and Eric? It feels awfully naughty to even mention this because he's a priest! That book club scene - shouldn't they have been reading Thornbirds instead in relation to Nicole and Eric? Just wondering...

    Don’t forget to watch! Friday’s show is a classic episode of John and Kristen’s (Susan) wedding June 24, 1997. It’s a great episode so make sure to set your DVRs.

    Take a look at Matt’s SOF Musings. A taste: "Half of the town's adulteresses got together to discuss, "The Scarlet Letter.""

    Chrissi..........I do not care for the Kristen character...
    I do not like characters with only one desire...to mess
    with other people!!

    If she is so great...and can have any BLACK she wants...
    why isn't she a happily married woman...instead of running
    around causing havoc!!??

    Don't think Gabi will go thru with the abortion....Not
    that she should have a child and Nicole lose her's....
    but...I know..it is the right to all women...it would not
    work with me....I'd have the child and raise it with
    unconditional love!! Crapola happens every day....girl
    meets guy....they kiss once...clothes off....a few weeks
    later....gagging........doctors office...........oh me...
    how did that happen!!!! You had sex...that's how it
    happened!!

    W~I~L~L~I~A~M's after thought..."I wish I'd used
    protection"....................YEP!! You should have
    thought of that....before the dance!!!!

    It will be interesting to see how great-grand-ma Marlena
    and grandma sami translate that!!!!! WOW!!
    Happy days in Salem are on the way!! Hang on folks...
    its going to be a heck of a ride!!!

    I listened to the conversation about how much money Will and Gabi said they needed and I keep hearing $50, not $15 and when they met up with Lucas, he gave them $60...could be wrong but thot I would comment on that...Kristin will be with Brady and this will send Marlena over the edge..I hate to see Sami back with EJ. I think what's going on with Will should bring her and Rafe back together..Nicole needs someone and I'm sure Eric is going to fall to the wayside because you can tell he still loves her...Kate will get back with Stefano because Stefano still loves her but as always with conditions...Jenn and Daniel, eh, we'll see. Chad and Abby will probably be an item and she'll lose her virginity to him and the truth will come out about why Mel left him and that'll end that...Geez, who knows, Will and Sonny might be raising a kid...never know!
