Lani's story under the last writing regime was cut short when they decided to get rid of her,Shawn,and Belle.Lani has been back in Salem for less than a week yet she still has more story with Abe,Theo,Valerie,JJ,and likedly Gabi in that period than she had the first month of her last stint.Her situation with JJ will likely lead to additional story for Abe and Valerie.I also wonder how they are going to writer her relationship with Valerie and her upcoming story which will also likely include Abe.In some instances,the writing for the character makes the character boring.I am looking forward to seeing where the return of Lani and Valerie will lead.In any case I still believe they need more women in her age range so I am happy she is back and I hope the writing for her is better.
I don't see her obsessing over/stalking JJ but if she stays and returns to the police force I can see how there would be some awkwardness with JJ that they would have to work through in order to work on the force together.Ditto for her and Shawn.
Lani's story from the last regime was cut short because it was literally cut. She had a story that didn't air. She's only recurring this time. This story is just as likely to get cut.
I hope you're wrong but you are likely correct about her story getting cut,therefore,I agree with your next post that it was moronic to bring her back.I didn't know she was recurring but I am still happy she is back.

I understand why Chad cannot discuss his situation with Jennifer or JJ but why is Chad calling Gabi instead of Sonny or even Kate.I'm glad Gabi was honest with Abby about who was calling.

I would like to know why Abby is hiding her panic attacks from Chad.They are supposedly trying to work out trust issues and here she is again hiding something important from him.I understand its not appropriate for Gabi to tell Chad about the attacks but I am not liking that Abby appears to be asking Gabi not to say anything about them to Chad.She wants Chad to trust her but she apparently still does not trust him.

The fact that he doesn't remember much of anything suggests a drug like GHB or Rohypnol instead of just getting drunk, so there's room to play out a psycho Lani story if you wanted to. (Or maybe Lani came across a drugged JJ before some random baddie took advantage of his drugged state, and she's innocent of everything but sleeping with a guy drugged out of his skull).

Don't think that's the direction they're going, though, so the blackout with extreme amnesia about that night is pretty hard to swallow.
Its not as if Days has never written an unrealistic storyline.I find it easier to swallow blackout drunk amnesia than face transplants,characters constantly returning from the "dead",especially Jack returning after his organs were harvested.
Its also more believeable than Abby receiving her PTSD treatment by telephone/Skype/whatever from her grandmother.

Sonny annoys me so badly anymore. And I still don't see the purpose of Lani.
JR's Abe needs more to do on the show.Giving him a family dynamic with Theo,Lani,Valerie,etc will give him more to do.They also need more younger females who are not related to the core familes.
Okay... But even with the additions of Lani and Valerie (who happen to be two of the most boring characters currently on the show, despite VW's charm), Abe still doesn't have much going on. Giving him a daughter changed absolutely nothing about his story/character. I'm all for more Abe, but let's not pretend like anything has really changed for him in the last year, lol.

JJ wasn't unconscious the entire time.He passed out after having met Lani and has sex with her.There is no showing that she was even aware of how drunk he was at the time they had sex.She probably thought JJ was under the influence but was aware of what he was doing at the time of their encounter and now believes he just used her for sex and wants nothing to do with her which is a legitmate reason for being pissed.

Maybe the song is one that has to grow on people. Don't most songs have to grow on most people?
There have been songs by a particular artist that have grown on me but I know this thing will not be one of them.When I read a post indicating I would have to suffer through it again I actually flinched.The only reason I didn't mute it today was because I thought I might miss some dialogue.In my opinion the song is really horrible.Even if I liked Abby and Chad I would not want to hear that in the background.

She did say she was happy. I remember how awkward and hilarious that scene was.

She looked more like she was angry and annoyed by Abby being back today. She even made a few snarky remarks. I didn't see a trace of happiness or much conflict within her. I feel like guilt was somewhere in the script. Maybe in the hands of a more capable actress.
Gabi can SAY she's happy Abby is alive all day long but it didn't ring true the first time she said it and today she showed that she is not happy about it at all. Even Dario called her on it (and he's not exactly brilliant).

Gabi wearing the necklace today spoke volumes....she hasn't given up on her "best friend"s husband.

It doesn't make sense at all. Two weeks ago Gabi was "loving JJ SO much" and two days ago Chad was the "I've never been so happy or so in love before" guy.

Bottom line. Gabi is equivalent to a 13 year old and doesn't know what real love is. She's all about who is giving her attention today.

I will never believe Gabi's love for JJ after this and I will never see her as a true bestie to Abby or Chad when Chabby are back on track.

Camilla is lovely but she's a weak actress and this story isn't doing anything good for Gabi.
If Gabi was all about who is paying her attention today,she would have told JJ she was giving him another chance instead of telling him she does not think there is a future for them.
Gabi developed feelings for Chad when she thought Abby was dead.Those feelings are not going to just disappear because Abby is back.I believe Gabi is honestly happy that Abby is alive.Although she still has feelings for Chad,I don't see anything at this point to indicate she wishes Abby was dead so she could have Chad.Until Gabi does something to actively intefere in Chad and Abby's marrige,I will still accept that she feels friendship for Abby.

I don't know about selfish, but Gabi has certainly treated JJ like a piece of crap when he has been honest with her while Gabi has emotionally cheated on him with Chad and won't own up to it! She acts like she has done nothing wrong and she has. She's throwing JJ to the side because "it's too much work." Relationships are work! I hope JJ did give Gabi a few words today because she deserves them.

Abby wants her life back. Is she supposed to not want to be with her husband and son? She offered to give Chad space yet he is insisting she stay at the mansion. I don't see her trying to have everyone forgive what she did. She told Chad she wants to work to get past their issues. :shrug:
Um, the only reason she's there is because Chad caught her in Thomas's bedroom....

I don't even like Chad, but I'm on his side here. :blulaugh:
I thought Chad suggested that Abby stay at the mansion so that they can be honest with each other and talk about their issues.I respect that he did not promise Abby that he would be able to get past her faking her death and making plans to walk away from him and Thomas a second time.I don't agree that he has to be receptive to every overture she makes to him.The music and what she said before and as she played the music was fine.Trying to get him to dance and kiss her was too much too fast for where he is now.In my opinion,he is just being honest about where he is the process of working through his feelings.The fact that he is not in the same place as she is realistic.

Why Gabi so offensive? Abigail is back and she should stop going after Chad.
I dont see that Gabi is currently "going after Chad".She told Abby she was happy she was alive then left the mansion.She has made no attempt to contact Chad.
She did say she was happy. I remember how awkward and hilarious that scene was.

She looked more like she was angry and annoyed by Abby being back today. She even made a few snarky remarks. I didn't see a trace of happiness or much conflict within her. I feel like guilt was somewhere in the script. Maybe in the hands of a more capable actress.
It seemed to me that Gabi was angry with Dario for attempting to interfere in romantic life rather than angry about Abby being alive.

I understand Abby wanting to go back to the relationship she had with Chad before her illness took over but she seemed to be moving too fast given what Chad said about where he is on finding out she faked her death and would have left him and their son again had he not seen her with Thomas.Playing the music was okay but trying to get Chad to dance to it and manipulate the kiss was too much under the circumstances.Chad likely understands intellectually that Abby is still ill which caused her to want to vanish but emotionally finds it difficult to accept that she did not have enough faith in him and their love too turn to him instead of away from him.

I like Kate with Adrienne.I laughed when she compared Justin and Lucas to unruly puppies and suggested giving Adrienne a rolled up newspaper to deal with them.I also like her interactions with Andre and Eduardo.

Dario was on point when he mentioned all of the poor choices Gabi has made when it comes to men.

Thursday, December 29th Episode Discussion
I appreciate that Gabi appears to admit she still has romantic feelings for Chad but accepts that he is married to Abby and they may work things out.

Gabi's necklace is okay but the cufflinks are hideous.They look like something from the dollar store.I thank God I cannot actual see the purple glass.

I think Shawn said when he left to be with Belle, he had resigned from the Salem PD. But I could be wrong.

I'm pretty sure Claire knows Ciara wants Theo too. I hope they aren't trying to make her "Sami " like. I don't think she can pull it off.

I like Roman, but I just can't understand him �� I ment no offense.
Shawn resigning would fit in with him not being on the force but after today's show,him testing Stefano's DNA does not.Who knows what they are doing.The writers often write conflicting dialogue as if they don't actually watch the show or read what has been previously written.
I don't know about her not being able to pull it off.I totally disliked Sami at the end of her regular run,continued to dislike her after her return,and I am beginning to dislike Claire for similar reasons,the manipulation and only thinking of what she wants.
I didn't take any offense about JT. was just commented on my ability to do so on most days including this show.There have been days when I have had a problem undestanding what various characters have said because they speak too fast or seem to mumble so I re-watch.

Stefano being alive and well is what I've wanted since the terrible story of his death. It's just very unfortunate that the Stefano is alive storyline is playing out so soon after Joe Mascolo's passing. However I still am very interested in finding out how Stefano master-minded his own murder.

Nicole is so happy to be caring for Holly. Loved her scenes with the baby, Chloe and Brady.

Geez guys, sneak a dirty diaper out of Chloe's room or a spitup towel, that would have all the DNA you need.

So if Andre isn't the one siphoning funds from DiMera Ent. could it be .... Stefano!
I am happy with the Stefano is alive storyline.The silhouette in the photograph made me think it could be Stefano.I love the thought of Stefano beiing alive even more so since JM is no longer with us.The thought of the Phoenix still being a part of the Salem story as long as the show airs is kind of comforting to me.Its a tribute to JM's history on the show.Andre looked genuinely offended as the thought that Kate believed he was responsible for the missing money.Hope the missing money ties into the Stefane is alive story.
AZ is so good in her scenes with the baby.Made me forget how much I hate the thought of Daniel being the father.I'm with you.My first thought was grab a diaper even I find it difficult to think of Deimos or Brady handling a dirty diaper but my second thought was that one of them would grab the baby bottle.
