The Days facebook page is asking what we all thought of Daniel's reaction to Jennifer on this episode :eyeroll: Could they pimp this character anymore already.

(Sorry if this^ is in the wrong place).

I really have no clue why Jennifer and J&J are being sacrificed for this character but I don't know how I can ever like Jennifer again after this. Especially the fact it's the same day. She's had no time to think about it she's just given up on Jack because he rejected her. If it was a a few days later maybe but I just don't know how or even if they plan to fix her.

They are doing a great job of balancing actors these days. I'm loving it! Out of your list the only person I want to see more of is Matt Ashford. Jack is criminally underused, but I guess that's what was in his contract. I don't see that changing much, unless we are going to get a burst of Jack and then not get him for a long time. Its sad, I am always excited to see Matt every time he's on. John Aniston is awesome and I like more Victor, but it seems like all of his episodes have happened in the last few weeks so I haven't really felt that he's been underused. Hope to continue seeing him pop up. I like the way they're using Maggie. She's backburnered, but she was on screen like every day of my life when Higley was running the show. I love Suzanne Rogers and enjoyed her being frontburner for a run, but I'm happy to take a break from her. I wouldn't be mad if I saw more of Maggie, but I'm not heartbroken over it. Sonny's storyline will pick up so I don't care that we have hardly seen him. Freddie Smith is great though. Casey Deidrick, thank god we never see Chad anymore. He is terrible and I can't stand that he's a fake DiMera.

The balance of the show has improved 1000x what it used to be and I don't feel like anyone is eating the show alive at this point.
Well, I don't know what the deal is with his contract, but we at least saw him more in the fall where he was in 2 or 3 episodes a week on average. At this point, I'll take that. Four episodes a month is just asinine.
According to the contract status list he is supposed to have a 2 episode minimum guarantee. So either something's changed (not sure if they can do that mid-contract or not) or they owe him a whole lot of airtime. Whatever it is I'm sick of him not being used everytime he comes back to this show. They really don't deserve the loyalty he's shown them over the past 20 yrs consider how little they seem to value him. I mean 8 episodes for 2012 so far..that's only one more than SC and he's been gone for a month. :toetap:

^ what's sad about that is that when Higley was fired I was pretty sure that the pimping and propping of Daniel would be over. Instead it got much worse and it destroyed Jennifer and has almost made J&J broken beyond repair. Now we get to see Daniel at least 3 times this week and next while Jack isn't on at all and Jennifer's back to being an idiot. Now they're shoving him Nicole's way and she's probably the next longterm character to be ruined for him.

^Didn't the spoiler for this say that Daniel & Jennifer ran into each other and it was awkward. It did not say she ran over to make sure he knew Jack was out of the game and to make sure they could still be friends. So was the original scene supposed to be where they ran into each other? I think she still looks fickle and the fact it's still the same day makes her look even worse.

I believe Jack and Jen get involved in mess with Abby by at least first of April cause CC mentioned taping with them on Jan 4 or 5th which will air beginning of April. She also said Kate had a couple first moments whatever that means
Well, okay, but that's over a month from now. Matt had four appearances in January and I believe only three in February. If that's even lower in March, I'm going to be seriously pissed off. daysofourlives.com just did a poll for most popular supercouple which Jack and Jennifer won pretty handily, on the frontpage of the site they have (or had as of a couple days ago) a thing congratulating Jack and Jennifer on being the most popular couple.

So.... why aren't they using them? It's not like I'm a fan of some obscure character like Gabi, enraged I'm not seeing her more. Jack and Jennifer are a big deal.
And Daniel/SC back and already has as many episodes this coming week and the week after that Jack/Matt had the whole month Daniel was gone. It's bad enough they took the Jacole idea and shoved it Daniel's way now we have to see more of Dannifer interacting instead of J&J.

I don't care about the "friendship" between Jennifer & Daniel. I want to see Jennifer fight for the man she claims to love. Are we going to be stuck seeing the friends hang out and then one day J&J will show up together suddenly reunited (I wouldn't be surprised). I don't understand the constant misuse and lack of airtime for Jack and J&J when their story is right there waiting to be told.

Actually Jack saw them holding hands. Whatever they are doing in that photo, it was never shown on air. I'm guessing part of the scene was cut.
OK holding hands but he did see them hug aswell..my point was that picture was from that episode. I think this did air it was when they (literally) ran into each other and it was "awkward" right before Daniel shared his woes about his shaky hands and Jennifer comforted him. It's just from a different angle I think.

And I certainly hope Jennifer's way of proving her love for Jack isn't to "reconnect" with Daniel. I'd hope she does what Jack was forced to do most of their relationship and fight for what she wants.
They did run into each other but Jack hadn't arrived yet when that happened. When he arrived they were sitting down at the table holding hands. I really don't like the wording of the caption. If Jennifer wants Jack back she needs to prove it.
Oh yeah I know Jack wasn't there yet, I was just meaning it was part of that same episode.

I think if Jennifer even thinks of trying to get back with Daniel because Jack rejected her then it really wont help her popularity or the believability of her declaration. It's hard enough trying to accept her sudden rediscovered love for Jack just because she sees he's "changed" (too bad him being tortured for a year wasn't enough for her to realise it). She needs to fight for Jack or any reunion will just fall flat for me. And they need to be on more than once a week.

What's up with that last photo? "Daniel and Jennifer reconnect" THE HELL??? :censored: This better be when Jen-Jen whines about not having Jack and her and Orangeballs decide they are better off as friends.
I thought this looked familiar and yeah that pic is an old one - from the day both he and Jack walked away from her. That is when they ran into each other in HTS and Jack saw them hugging. I'm guessing (hoping) the reconnecting part is just a rewording of her whining about Jack not wanting her anymore (even though that's not what he said)

Jenn runs into Daniel. Things are awkward. She tells him Jack doesnít want her anymore. That doesnít make things better.


I like the wording of this as it makes it seem like there is some regret on Jennifer's part. She needs to stop and think about why Jack doesn't want her. Running to Daniel isn't going to solve any problems for her. For one thing it gives off the wrong impression. For another, he doesn't know squat about her or Jack or their long history and given his bias towards Jennifer, his opinion is just about worthless.
So I watched the hippy clips and Jack never said he didn't want her he said he didn't want to break her heart again. I'm not sure I like her telling Daniel about it though or even why she would. As much as I dislike Daniel I doubt he wants to hear about Jack rejecting her so soon after she wasa a blubbering mess saying goodbye to him (Daniel).

I don't understand why if Jennifer wants Jack back so badly she doesn't do what worked best and fight for him (the way he has for her the last 20 years). I guess that may happen but Jack would need to be on for that to play out.

Thanks for the preview.

But, wow, that is one seriously ugly dress they have Jennifer wearing. I don't know what's worse: the drab print or the unflattering shapeless cut. Jack's clothes, on the other hand, look a little better, now that he's lost the Mr. Rogers cardigan.
I was thinking the same thing when I saw Jen's dress. Maybe Missy pissed off the wardrobe department that day and Matt pissed them off the day of the Mr. Rogers sweater?? I'm just not getting some of these wardrobe choices.
I'm pretty sure that's a top being worn with grey pants by the looks of it. Still not the best choice but I think alot better than the thought of Jennifer picking out a dress like that LOL.

I love that moment when Jack sneaks up on Jennifer and both their reactions. Reminds me of classic J&J.

All of this looks so good..Is it Tuesday yet? :tounge:

^ Maybe she refers to herself as Jennifer Horton but everyone else still thinks of her as Jennifer Deveraux. It's as good an explanation as any. ;)

I miss Jack & Jennifer :( :( :( :( :(
Me too :( Coincidently I think it's interesting that he proposed the first time and he filed for divorce in their first marriage and she proposed the second time and filed for divorce. What can I say itís the little things they accidently do that I find interesting.
Me three ;)

Interesting..also their divorce was finalised this time just a couple of weeks before what would've been their anniversary :(

another memorable day on the set of Days of our lives... may you have as much fun watching it as we did playing it!

Days Insider: Cast Valentine's Q&A
Interesting selection of answers.

As a J&J fan I do disagree with Matt's choice for Jack - rooftop proposal for me. But I understand why he named Wonderful Wonderful - because it was so un-Jack and he did it because he thought Jennifer would love it. Willing to humiliate yourself in the name of love could be considered very romantic :wub: .

I think some of the newer cast should look at some old clips because Maggie/Victor and Bradison as the most romantic couples? :shrug:

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I'm wondering why Lexie even asked the question..Jack & Jennifer aren't a couple (as I'm sure all of Salem already knows) so what was all that Jennifer said about no-pressure holidays. They are just co-parents as far as the last time we saw them. Is that an offscreen development or was she just saving face? :shrug:
IA, it doesn't make sense for Lexie to ask Jen about Jack and Valentine's Day plans. Assumption or just plain dumb? Even though Lexie is a MD, she plays dumb and naive really well. Other than Hope, noboby has asked Jennifer about her heart wrenching love trio saga. Does everyone in Salem assume that JnJ are together, b/c Daniel left town and Jack is still there? TPTB are missing way too many beats in this SL. Makes me mad! :frustration: :angry: :frustration: You'd think Jen would be promoting her 'single' status, but honesty is not one of her best qualities these days and her response about keeping it a 'no pressure holiday' tells us squat!
I read Jennifer's look and reply as I'm actually single because my boyfriend left me and my husband who I treated like crap doesn't want to be with me either. I didn't think it was odd of Lexie to ask being that Jennifer was with Jack on Thanksgiving, was at the Horton tree ceremony (Abe and Lexie showed up after she treated Jack like crap) and Christmas, so maybe as far as Lexie knows her and Jack are working on their relationship. I also thought it was very un-Jack not to do or send at least a little something to Jennifer and Abby. I would have figured he would have sent them flowers or something from him and JJ. It has been awhile for Jenn in the romance department but I highly doubt she will offer Jack anything in the vicinity although she must be jonesing. On a side note I actually like her outfit today. She looked professional without looking 60.
Why would Jack send Jennifer anything on Valentines Day? Don't you remember he's never done a romantic thing for her in his life. He's probably doesn't even realise it is Valentines Day :sarcasm:

I actually took her look after the question was asked as discomfort and maybe slight disappointment. I too liked what she was wearing. She must have the heat on full blast to be able to wear that at this time of year LOL.

It's weird. Hope did not know the last time she and Jennifer spoke that Daniel and Jack had walked away. Yet Nicole had heard that Jennifer got double-dumped.

With all the wailing and gnashing of the teeth that heralded Danny-Boy's departure from Salem, you'd think everyone was aware that he was gone and why. And be able to discern that Jack and Jennifer were not back together or even trying to reconcile at this point. They're co-parents on reasonably amicable terms and that about covers it these days. And yet Lexie wants to know if they're doing anything special on V-Day? The continuity leaves much to be desired--but that's true of just about every aspect of this storyline.

I still think Jennifer was trying to save face. Unless she's into humiliation, she can't very well say she and Jack have nothing planned because he walked away from her and hasn't made any attempt to start things up with her again. That would be as good as admitting that her GHH is losing its potency.
^Well it is somewhat of an improvement over their last two holidays spent together. Christmas we had to witness Jennifer kiss Daniel in front of Jack and Thanksgiving Jennifer told Hope she wished she'd spent it with Daniel. At least she and Jack had discussed it to come to the conclusion of no pressure holidays - just wished we could've seen that but since Jack hasn't been on the last 13 episodes it's kindof hard :shame: .
