Days of our Lives Weekly Blog
Warden Smith brings sexy to the pokey. (Soaps.com)
These are the “Days” of my week for Sept 20 –24:
The show had its moments this week but some storylines are dragging. The writers love writing for The Sami Show instead of Hope’s much more intriguing storyline. Once again, I question whether Corday and Higley know their target audience.
Chloe’s pregnancy got SORAS’d fast! She must be sporting stretch marks upon stretch marks. She’s huge. Is she 9 months already or having more than one child? Can she get any bigger?
Our suspect list is getting more convoluted.
For a moment I wondered if Ian switched the results, considering he suddenly seems to be into Stephanie like a bad case of herpes. I hope he’s not another Nick Fallon. It’s bad enough the show ruined Blake Berris’ character. We don’t need a repeat of that and once Nathan dumps Stephanie for Melanie…because you know it’s got to be coming…Ian could easily stick around for Steph. Otherwise, there’s no need for Stephanie after this storyline is resolved, especially when and if Kayla leaves. Thoughts on Ian? Take my poll!
Who ordered the overtly contrived storyline?
It’s difficult to care one iota about Nathan because he’s not well written for but his whole storyline has gotten worse with the passing weeks. I realize he’s supposed to brood over what Stephanie’s interest is in Ian, so he’ll eventually find out what she’s hiding from him but that’s not how it’s coming off and frankly, Nathan doesn’t seem the type to me to feel so inferior to Ian just because he’s assisting Steph with a computer program. It would work better for me if Nathan overheard the two talking and misunderstood what they were discussing. Instead it feels as though Nathan’s suddenly a jealous ape with a double standard.
Matt of Matty’s Musings and I are threatening to write “Whoever shot my son will pay,” or “When I find out who did this, there’ll be hell to pay,” or “I swear to you that I’ll find out who did this to you,” or something similar after every sentence Stefano says, unless the show stops repeating dialogue every single frigging day. It’s bad enough we suffer through the flashbacks.
Love the actress but wardens shouldn’t purr and ooze sex appeal. Where is this storyline going? Without seeing any progress in this storyline I can see myself easily losing interest.
Oy. Salem PD.
It’s a shame they lost their best cop in Hope Brady. Poor daft Beauregard needed Carly’s help to investigate or even consider investigating Vivian’s disappearance. Poor Beau! Thank goodness for Carly. Then again, she may kick herself if Vivian’s caught.
Fantabulous Galen interview.
The actor dishes with Mario Rocchetta on his past as Rafe and his thoughts on Ejami vs Safe in this revealing interview with Galen Gering! Why couldn’t the writers have shown the viewers more about who Rafe is? It’d go a long way to making some fans find him more likeable. I understand why he’s drawn to Sami "train wreck" Brady but he’s still a man of mystery.
The rub down.
Arianna is a client of EJ’s not a friend, but there she sits, day after day, offering support. It’s kind. And yes, it’s a little tweaked. I don’t believe I’d ever rub my lawyer’s body parts even if he was comatose. It’s just a little peculiar. Just a little ridiculous. Not to mention that we’re just now (on the heels of her being let go) finding out that she’s drawn to dangerous men? I could have used this knowledge a few months ago. Nevertheless, Lindsay Hartley was hired at All My Children, and we hope she gets more respect.
Thickest line of the week.
Kate asked, "What have you got me into now Sami?" Kate did this to herself. If she hadn’t called Sami, EJ would not be shot and she wouldn’t be keeping this secret.
It was an interesting and tender moment between Stefano and Kate when they revealed how they really felt about each other but what ruined it for me is that I’m quite sure Kate was lying. I don’t believe for a moment she loves Stefano. I mean she cares, but she cares about Will more.
Best line of the week.
“I wake up, I screw up. I end up alone." This is why we love Nicole. Her honesty and willingness to accept responsibility. Even after she messed up massively at the shower by almost blurting out Chloe’s secret. Poor Nic Nic.
Silly things that pop into my head while watching.
When Stefano got the call from Lexi to come to the hospital straight away, and Sami and Kate followed him out of the DiMera mansion, did Sami drive her own car or did they carpool?
How is Nicole going to provide for herself once she moves back to the hotel if her accounts are frozen?
How long has Vivian been in that sarcophagus? Won’t Brady need to let her out to use the restroom?
Rafe put in a request for time off so he could babysit Sami and figure out who shot EJ. Why? Bills don't wait for personal issues to be resolved!
Your own thoughts?! Please feel free to leave me a message. I do read them all and am always very interested in hearing what you have to say, whether or not you agree with me! Have a great weekend!
