Days of our Lives Weekly Blog
No wonder Jenn's always so happy! (Soaps.com)
These are the “Days” of my week from May 9-13:
Happy Friday the 13th! It’s been another good week. The big theme this week was about “seeing the light.” Victor thought Maggie saw the light, Nicole said she saw the light and EJ said he too saw the light. Did Higley finally see the light too? Well for sweeps she did.
There you are!
Thursday and Friday my Sami returned for two whole days. She thought with her brain, not her emotions, and she wasn’t weak. Her relationship with Rafe had almost come full circle. I want this to mean that both of them will change as a result but Friday’s show had me in a coma watching her fill Rafe in on his past. I felt much like she did in seeing RetroRafe again. For those two days I said, “It’s you. I knew it was you. I knew the other Sami wasn’t you.” Is sniveling Sami gone or is this temporary?
The only sad part is that “the creature,” RoboRafe, was locked in the bathroom grunting and groaning and had no good lines to contribute to my entertainment. Matt from SOF’s Matt’s DOOL Musings likened him to Frankenstein.
Melanie wants her parents to get together, and the aggressiveness and protective vibe is too much for me. She’s overly involved. “MarshaKinderUSA” on Twitter suggested it’s because she has waited so long to find love, a home and family that she feels the fragility of it all and doesn’t want to lose it. Likely true but it’s still annoying. Oh and those Mel and Dario scenes? Not working for me. She can do better.
It was like a scene out of an episode of “The Brady Bunch,” when Daniel and Jennifer made their girls apologize to each other after all that incessant bickering over stuff that’s none of either of their businesses. I suppose there could be some fun scenes if they eventually all moved into the Horton house together.
What is a slut, really?
Sure I’ve done it before, but I’m not overly fond of these derogatory terms created for women. It’s such a lazy way to express ourselves. It doesn’t really address how we really feel or what’s really going on beneath the surface of the other party. I have no problem with a person getting sex when they require it. It’s a basic need such as food or a really nice Prada handbag. It’s understandable for Chloe to need and want sex especially in her state of mind. It’s a release. She wanted to try to fill the empty void left by Philip taking Parker from her and since she’s not a shopaholic she turned her hunger to vodka and a cute Aussie. It might fill the void for a few hours like a good hour-long therapy session only this time she’s the one who got paid (oops!) and it seemed to really help her. Afterward, she was really optimistic about her future and got some fight back. I credit Quinn and am curious to see where this storyline is going.
Sometimes we want what’s out of our reach. Sometimes what we want isn’t what we need.
Oh EJ… Where to begin? He told Lexi he just wanted to be the man Taylor wanted him to be. When is he going to learn to find happiness (with a little compromise) on his own terms? He keeps trying to be what somebody else wants him to be and Lexi was right - he’ll never have that white picket fence with the happy family, because he has seen to it. He and Nicole could have been good.
I actually felt bad for Taylor for a minute (don’t throw eggs at me just yet!) when she told herself how stupid she was to be with her sister’s husband. Yes, she was stupid, and it was beyond unforgivable, yet she’s still allowing him into her life by reading his letter. I don’t see her moving on just yet.
A turn off.
I didn’t like Brady’s arrogance in his dealings with Nicole at Cheatin’ Heart. I understood it but it turned me off. Nic played it cool and even warned him against her sister but is Taylor really as bad as Nicole suggests? Maybe that remains to be seen. I’m quite sure I don’t want Taylor with Brady or with EJ, so where again does this character fit in?
One sorry sod.
Victor was one sorry sod on Thursday. In fact, he was sorrier than he could ever say, and then, moments later, he was sorrier than Maggie would ever know. That’s one sorry dude. He’s obviously devastated but I see good things in his future with Maggs. If Maggie wants to be with him, she simply has to let him be him. Good luck to her!
I always carry around an empty bottle of Midol Complete.
Midol’s a good brand name. Arianna thought so, Jennifer thinks so, and yet Abby, who is 18 or 19 years old has never heard of Midol? Who wrote that scene? The Midol commercial was over the top as usual and entertained me, though I think it was unintentionally humourous, but I’m not going to complain. I want the show to succeed. They probably could have reached behind the bar for the bottle Arianna kept there instead of running to the pharmacy for more. Could Jenn be popping Midol to keep that sunny disposition?
