I had a feeling A was put on recurring. His absence from blobby plus he said in an interview recently something about taping Days only when they need him to.

It makes me feel better than it was his choice and not the show's. Now can I get Eve and Eduardo, please?
Watch what you ask for. I can see Dena writing a storyline in which Eve admits to Ed that Paige was a twin and she gave the other baby up for adoption, thinking she couldn't support two children alone. In comes True O'Brien for another round. Didn't Dena create Paige, and would it be a stretch for her to want True back?
No, Paige was Tomlin/Whitesell's creation lol.
Whew, that makes me feel better. ;)

Who is currently staying at the Bed and Breakfast and why does she kick them out?
Someone had speculated that she was going to open a brothel. Lol!

In all honesty, I'd be fine with Kate as a madam. It would actually give her character some focus. Maybe an aging Foxy Humdinger could come back to Salem and help her manage it. :P

I wasn't able to locate the site, but my twitter pal said he'd heard the site wasn't reliable after I asked about it.
I just found it. It's a sensationalistic piece that talks about the ratings and asks, "so, should Days be cancelled after its 51st season?"

Just a bunch of nonsense...

I would like to see Carrie and Anna and to see what kind of relationship they have. Carrie has always been marlena's favourite so I'm interested to see if Anna feels upset by their bond. Also it would be kind of strange to have Carrie and not Sami. Who is going to pick on Carrie? I kind of like the sibling rivalry thing they had. Maybe Brady or Belle will go a little darker to complement Carrie's softness. Don't gene wrong though I always enjoy he baddies more.
It would make me so sad if Anna has a problem with Carrie/Marlena after all these years. I always loved that Anna and Marlena were both able to put Carrie first and accept that they both loved and wanted the best for her. It happens so rarely in soaps and is a major strength of both Marlena and Anna.

I would be interested to see Anna interact with the other "children" in the family, though, and see if that has an effect on the overall dynamic.
I'd like to see Marlena and Anna form a more solid friendship after all these years. So much of the dynamic to play on, and I'd like to see how Marlena would react to a serious flirtation between Anna and Faux, even if it means seeing more of JT. I thought he was cute with Leann.

But, overall, my fondest wish is that Leann is on contract and heavily featured for the foreseeable future. I can't get enough Anna and her last stint just seemed like a tease.

OMG is it really the anniversary of Frankie Frames GRUESOME murder on ANOTHER WORLD?

To this day...no soap murder has gotten to me or made me want to crawl out of my skin than this one....it was a very very defeating death...one that I don't think AW ever recovered from.
Me too, Mitch. Can't believe it's been 20 years! As much as I loved Renee Dimera and was shocked and hurt by her death, Frankie's stalking and murder shook me to the core, and I mean that literally. I watched the episode on VHS the night it aired. I was shaking and crying at the sheer violence and brutality of it. I'm sorry, but Maggie DePriest (the headwriter) was a sick woman. Thank God she's retired and no longer poisoning the few remaining soaps.

I took part in the campaign to try to save Frankie, and Alice Barrett actually called to thank me. Talked about being stunned! Apparently she was calling all the fans whose contact information was included on our letters.

God, I miss Another World (pre-murder, that is).

Oh, hooray, Days is back. You know, I was just thinking about the status of the show and how it's been a part of my life for more than 35 years, then I thought about the exciting cliffhanger before the break and the thrilling stories to come, then I thought maybe we'll............... :sleep2: :sleep2: :sleep2:

Y&R don't only kill children and throw fetuses in fireplaces, but they also dwell on the children deaths for decades.

Kill Thomas. Bring in all the Hortons, Deverauxs and Dimeras to battle for years! Bring Abby back to torture them all for her son's death. She's nuts, anyway, so she would just have to spend more time in the mental ward.
Fetuses in the fireplace?

What in the fuck?

Y&R seriously did this?
Yes. Long story short: Adam gaslighted his pregnant mentally ill stepmother (Ashley) by dressing as his deceaded previous stepmom (Sabrina). One night Ashley saw "Sabrina" while standing at the top of the stairs, got spooked and fell down the stairs. She miscarried and Adam then threw the fetus and the "remains" in the fireplace.
If I recall correctly, the actor playing Adam so strongly objected to this story that he ended up quitting or being fired (can't recall). He had to be replaced rather quickly. I know actors are paid to play what's written, but I can see why he'd have a big problem with that. I can't see how the character was ever redeemed from something so reprehensible. :shrug:

Another missed opportunity: Not bringing Autumn to Salem for Lucas when Sami decided to chase another two dicks....it would have been interesting to see Lucas tell Sami to go screw the other two if she felt like it but he was done with her shenanigans...enter Autumn...
THIS! Bryan is such an appealing presence on screen, and Lucas has actually matured so beautifully as a character over the years (unlike Sami). He's being wasted on the backburner, and his insta-relationship with Adrienne doesn't qualify as a full-fledged storyline.

DR wants to know...Biggest Missed Opportunities
1. I always thought it should have been revealed that EJ was Stefano's grandson rather than his son. It would have turned out that Andre and Stefano had faked Renee's death to get her away from Tony once and for all, but she had become pregnant by Tony the night of her party. EJ was the result. It would have finally given Tony a child, would have brought Renee back (even temporarily), and EJ would have been born in spring, 1984, making him close in age to Sami rather than the ridiculous SORAS. It also would have given JS a story that didn't revolve around Ali/Sami.

2. Melissa Archer as Sarah Horton. She should still be brought back as Sarah. They've done if for JT, Judi Evans and Tamara Braun.

3. Sean Douglas should have been put on contract and kept as Vargas. Great actor, handsome, chemistry with everyone, and great screen presence. Excellent anti-hero. Would have loved him with either Hope or Nicole.

4. Benji Dimera should have been kept on canvas. So much story to tell for this younger Dimera, the actor was very good, and having a full-time deaf character played by a deaf actor would be a daytime first.

5. Andre Dimera should not have been brought back again. TP should be playing Tony. Serial killer Andre should be in a permanent dirt nap.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
No She's dead.
I refuse to believe that there's no possibility of her being alive in the Dimera basement.
Yup. I believe that everyone who has died in Salem is potentially in the Dimera basement/dungeon, including all the dead Dimeras. It's getting pretty crowded down there. :blulaugh:

1. David/Renee/Tony/Anna
2. Stockholm

I think Days needs to think long and hard before they bring anyone back from the dead after that Aiden mess.
So true. For a show that has overused the "back from the dead" trope to a ridiculous extent, they sure wasted the plot device on Aiden.

As a character who was born and grew up on the show, Will is at least worthy of a resurrection. Aiden wasn't.

DR wants to know...Favorite Villains
1. Stefano Dimera (original menacing, 80s recipe incarnation)

2. Emma Donovan Marshall (I usually found Kim to be annoying, so I LOVED watching Emma torture her, all the while with that wide-eyed innocent look)

3. Alex Marshall (sleaze-bucket extraordinaire, but so damned funny; I was in heaven when Emma married him)

No preview?
They aren't releasing it until after 5 Eastern and only on the website
THAT'S fucked up. :flipoff: :flipoff: :flipoff: If the preview is any good airing it immediately after the show would have gone a long way to wipe off the taste of Rope.
It really does seem like intentional sabotage of the show. Doesn't anyone remember the old show biz credo "Leave 'em wanting more"? This leaves me wanting my stomach pumped...

They aren't even trying. They aren't even FUCKING trying anymore. Ken/Dena... :flipoff: you both.

I'd much rather GV got out of jail on early parole and came back with a slight edge and a determination to win back Nicole but until that happens, I'll tolerate Deimos who is better looking than Dario. Because great Cthulhu JV's Dario looks like he needs to have his five o'clock shadow surgically removed.
Agree about GV/Eric returning, but I have to admit the five o'clock shadow is what I like most about JV/Dario. I think he's sexy, but boy is Dario written like a doorknob.
