Days of our Lives Weekly Blog
Zombie-Kate says, "Caaaaake." (Soaps.com)
These are the “Days” of my week from March 21-25:
Another food theme this week with cookies making a full appearance at the Horton household, Rafe trying to stuff his sausage down Sami’s throat, the kooky doc feeding Rafe veggies, and Vivian licking icing from the tips of her fingers. With all the criticisms I throw at DOOL, I still prefer it over any other soap. I recapped today’s Y&R and will be recapping for Monday as well, and one thing I found to be missing is humour. Kudos to DOOL for making me laugh on a daily basis, even if it’s sometimes unintentional…
Kate and Vivian’s cake fight scene was fun from Kate’s dig about Vivian having to hire help to befriend her, to Vivian’s taunts about Kate not knowing what her own man is up to. Both make good points. They’d make a good team. Stefano’s advice to EJ about scratching the itch while making everything in his personal life look legit made me wonder if I should be doubting his sincerity where his own wife’s concerned. That’s some kind of DiMera advice!
Nathan channeled the DiMera in himself while he traipsed across town to push his feelings on to Melanie. He and Steph got closure, which was great, but the experience has left Stephanie bitter and inspired her to spread gossip to a complete stranger about Melanie’s tainted past. Dario now thinks Mel’s still that same player. I don’t mind the story, but I’m just not feeling Dario yet. Did you break out into laughter when Gabi asked RoboRafe to let Dario stay in the extra bedroom at the loft? That dinky little locker room has five bedrooms? Seriously, we’re supposed to believe that? Also that Sami stirred in anti-anxiety meds into cold coffee and it dissipated?
I think RoboRafe could be the one who killed Arianna. I polled you and 67% agreed. The rest thought it was too easy, making me wonder if they’ve ever seen DOOL. While Robo was faking seizures and falling in love with Samanther, we got to see Rafe in a sanitarium with a younger version of Dr. Rolf feeding him veggies and handing out gold stars. The doctor was pretty funny but the scene didn’t drum up any concern for Rafe in me. I did like that he’s thinking like himself and has gotten a clue … as to who he is. He sure has a fan in Johnny, as does RoboRafe. I laughed when Johnny gushed about how he loves Rafe even more now.
Janel vs Darly.
Jennifer keeps compensating for her own feelings for Dan by trying to set him up with Carly. I bet Janiel are paired up while Carly deals with her own demons. What I'd like to know is when it will be time for Melanie to mourn her loss? It's been two minutes since she and Philly broke up and gave Nate the heave-ho. I'm in no hurry to see her paired up again and certainly not with Keanu Reeves, who just wants her money.
Cringe-worthy - Melanie telling Dario that she loved "Your guyzez sister."
It was a sad day when I realized Chloe's no longer crazy from her perfect hairstyle and make-up application. Oh boo. I mourn her craziness but am so happy she's getting a job. She should tell Sami about this foreign thing she calls a job.
Open wide. It's time for TPTB to force yet another nasty storyline involving a child down your throats. Bope has barely gotten back together and they're already facing a runaway story. Vote on how you feel about Ciara and Theo running away.
Maggie's a romantic to lure Victor to Chez Rouge in order to open her heart to him. It was sweet. I just hope he doesn't break it. I won't say anything about Victor's tears...
Throwing the 'L' word around.
As obsessive as EJ is, he has never been a moron. EJ has spoken to Sweet 'n Low all of three times, yet he's insistent he's in love with her. They haven't even had a real conversation. It's called lust. Open your mouth wider because that's going to be a lot to cram down your throat.
Poor Faye deserves better daughters. Was it all for naught? Faye returned, moved into the mansion only to be overlooked and then overhear the men of the manor discussing their little secret. (spoiler) Faye's days are numbered, and I'm unimpressed.
Speaking of the 'l' word, when TPTB said they'd be taking her in a new direction, did that mean they're going to make Taylor bi or gay?
Regarding the possibility of John Black returning, my dear pal Gordon Parkhurst says, "My idea would be to have Stefano accidentally implant John's memories (that he's got stored on some CD somewhere) into Rafe. Then bring back Deirdre Hall and have Rafe be hot for her, while married to Sami.
I'll leave you with that! If you want another outlook on Salem, check out SOF's Matt's DOOL Musings.
