Jealous! (NBC Universal Inc.)

Salem Shenanigans from June 23 – 27 :

The week sort of dragged. This is what happens when it’s all Jennifer, all the time. Even Sami’s revenge storyline was low key. There’s been too much talking and not enough action. It’s the calm before the storm I guess…

Honkytonk Eve:
What to say about Eve? The show dug up a character from the 1980s that only long-time viewers will remember that nobody else gives a crap about. Just to prop up Miss Prissy Pants. Finally they broke Dannifer up only to keep HRH in the mix by bringing Eve back so we could have the displeasure of seeing Jenn squirm some more. Oy. There are so many more characters who could have returned and had nothing whatsoever to do with Jennifer Horton. As you know, I started watching in 1994 so I missed out on all of the goodness from the 80s. I’ve done a little research on the character, portrayed originally by Charlotte Ross. Kassie DePaiva is a great actress and was quite fun to watch as Blair on “One Life To Live” but it’s still too soon to say how she’s doing as Eve. It’s never easy to fill another actor’s shoes even if it’s been a long 27 years. Some of the fans are complaining Eve was snarkier back then but again, it’s been 27 years. She doesn’t have to be the same. She’s not going to be the same. People change and grow though how much she has grown remains to be seen. All in all, I’m not sure how to feel about Eve so far. Matt says, “I don’t know either. She just seems like she doesn’t belong. I don’t know if that’s good or bad.” Yep. Give us your thoughts: Days Poll: What to say about Eve?

A few questions:
Who is Paige’s father? Some are questioning if it’s Frankie or Jack, Mr. Larson or Mr. Baron (unless Baron’s her stage name) but Eve told Paige she and Jack didn’t consummate their 2 minute marriage.

Is it just me or is it unusual that a girl of 17 uses a word such as ‘harrowing’ to describe Jack’s memoirs?

Can we get rid of the awful flashbacks?

Ben and Jordan.
Jordan agonizing over her secret past was annoying as hell. And Kate needs to get a life and stay out of Jordan and Rafe’s business and please, oh please stop encouraging Jordan to make-up with Rafe.

And yes, I do like Rafe and we all know he has the White Knight Complex but it’s already getting annoying to hear him b**** and whine about how Gabi murdering Nick is somehow his fault or responsibility. Somebody needs to tell him he can’t change the past and he’s not a White Knight. He’s just a dude who did the best he could have done for his sisters.

Kate dug up two men from Jordan’s past. Word has it ***teaser*** one is her daddy. So she didn’t kill him I guess, which many speculated about!

Boozed up, drugged up, and sexed up.
See last week’s Deconstructing DOOL when I blah blah blahed about how Theresa was a bad influence on Brady. There’s really nothing more to say. They need to make this character vulnerable and likeable because after a year of being in Salem, there has been zero growth and zero cares given about her. And Brady… it’s been painful to watch him slip further into Theresa’s clutches and to treat John with such disdain and disrespect when we know John’s only coming from a place of love. Hopefully John will change tactics soon and somehow get through to his son.
