Days of our Lives Weekly Blog
Here he comes to save the day! (Soaps.com)
These are the “Days” of my week from May 23-27:
There was less stuttering this week on “DOOL” than last, when it seemed everyone was tripping over their tongues. Instead, they had better things to do with their tongues: kiss. Here are my thoughts for the week even though I don’t have a lot to say.
Chloe was never the sharpest gal.
I have no problem with Chloe getting into bed with Quinn. I don’t have a problem with her spending the money he gave her. I’m glad sex with Kingpin Quinn made her get off her ass and pursue time with Parker. My issue is that she’s relying on him to motivate her instead of motivating herself. She’s so desperate to love and be loved that she overlooks things like knowing that when a one-nighter is over, it’s over. You don’t date the guy. She really does need to move back into Maggie’s place and receive more guidance. She also needs ‘super power’ hearing in order to listen in on Quinn’s calls so she can witness him spewing threats with his best Godfather delivery. Vote on whether or not Chloe should be with Quinn.
Rewritten? Forgotten? Or just another of EJ’s lies?
Taylor told EJ that Nicole said she and EJ had a good thing until Taylor moved back to Salem. This is true, though EJ denied it. Of course he denied it. He’s EJ. A liar. In an interview around the same time, James Scott said EJ was falling back in love with Nicole. So their relationship was going somewhere until he met Taylor and started having feelings for her. I’m not blaming. I just want the facts straight.
The last time Bo saw Carly, she was having a bizarre meltdown in his living room about Ciara running away, so I thought it was fitting that he’d be worried enough about her to pay her a visit. Unfortunately, I think he unintentionally made things worse. Do you think Carly will stay off the drugs permanently? If so, will Jennifer find out the truth anyway and will Carly face the board? Do you care about this storyline? Do you find it weak?
I really like Carly and Daniel’s friendship and the scene where he called her Katerina gave me a chuckle. I’d like to see more of Daniel as a happy-go-lucky guy and more banter between him and Carly – friendly or otherwise. Why not cash in on their chemistry?
I was momentarily furious upon hearing all of the impossible memories coming out of Abby’s mouth about Jack drifting off from his fatherly duties when I remembered Higley’s gone and can’t ruin the show any more than she already has. Days will soon be much better and I’m hoping the new head writers will restore Jack’s personality and integrity. Still, that scene made Abby seem worth caring for. Even though Jack would never behave this way.
Rafe and Sami are très boring with their "disguises" and the overconfidence that they’re going to beat EJ and Stefano at their own game. I’m so tired of the way these two are written. Even though I like the idea of them going up against the DiMera’s, so far it’s come off as cheesy. And did we really need to see Sami being attacked in her nightmare by RoboRafe? The only redeeming part of that scene was that Robo asked Sami how she couldn’t tell prime rib from a hamburger. I smirked. Still, I couldn’t even enjoy that because of the attack. Let's hope we see things kicked up a little with Rafe acting as RoboRafe.
Kate was quite sneaky to trick Vivian into meet her at Cheatin’ Heart. I love Vivian but she needs to move on and find something more to do. I don’t want to lose her but at this rate; there is no real reason for her to be in Salem. Maybe there will be reason in a few weeks…
I dug that both Stefano and Gus think the bar is a dive just like I do and enjoyed the scene between Chad and Stefano. Give me more of that!
Brady once again came to Melanie's rescue. Of course Dario became jealous as a result. What does it all mean? I don't know but it was fun to watch Brady in action. We need more Brady.
I’d drone on as I usually do but quite honestly nothing holds my interest enough to rant or rave about this week. Maybe you could regale me with your own thoughts of the week in Salem?
Have a blast this long weekend.
