FIRST 5-DAY "SAMI-LESS" WEEK SINCE JULY 2011...ALSO SAMI'S LONGEST ABSENCE SINCE MISSING 6 EPISODES IN MARCH 2012

Alison Sweeney (Sami) was absent for the entire week (September 23-27, 2013) this week on "Days." Since August 2011, this is just the second time that Sweeney has missed 5 or more episodes in a row. She was absent for 6 episodes in a row from March 8-15, 2012. This is also the first 5-day "Sami-less" week since the week of July 25-29, 2011, during a stint when Sweeney was absent for 11 episodes in a row (July 21-August 4, 2011). Sweeney did put in a appearance behind the cameras this week though, as the director of the September 27 episode.

I wish this has been posted last week so I would have had something positive to anticipate this week.I look forward to seeing the ratings for last week,this week,and the following week.Decent writing for all characters trumps just writing for two or three characters all the time.I must admit I liked what AS did with Friday's show except EJ's hair.
P.S.Thanks for letting me down gently with your post about Cameron.

What the fuck is going on with EJ's hair? I can't even focus on what he's saying because it looks like there's a small, dead squirrel's tail stuck to the top of his forehead.
I am glad I was on hold when I read your post,its serious so I don't want amyone asking what the heck I am laughing about.I read post earlier in the week praising EJ's hair which I had not noticed at the time I read the posts.On noticing it today I was wondering how I could have missed it.It looks like the front is bangs with hall the bangs cut off and flipped back with the rest in a crew cut.I am going to go back and DVR soapnet so i can hear his dialogue.I missed most of it because I was distracted by the hair.It kind of reminds me of a shorter version of that monstrosity of a hair cut Casey had this summer that he was tweeting about.Just as Chad's hair has gotten better,
EJ's hair has gotten worse.Once I noticed his hair I could not look away even thought I wanted to do so.I wonder whether James went to Casey's stylist to get his new do.

I don't sense anything between Missy and Shawn, really. I'm not saying they don't get along, or they don't like each other as people, but as acting partners, they don't respond to each other somehow.

The thing is, I DO see chemistry between Missy and Shawn. When Jennifer and Daniel first got together in 2011, I liked them. The actors clicked, and the writing was decent. But in the back of my mind, I knew that Jack was coming back and I knew that Dannifer wasn't endgame, so I suppose that's why it didn't bother me so badly.

Cut to the present. Jack is dead, killed off in an elevator shaft without a second thought, and it is CLEAR that the writers have absolutely no intention of ever bringing him back. Not only that, but Days has managed to make literally every female character on the show (Maggie, Chloe, Nicole, Abigail, Maxine, Kristen, Hope, etc.) a Dannifer WORSHIPPER. TomSell's Dannifer IS endgame, and I think that's why it is so hard to watch. You can even see it in the actors. The spark that existed between Missy and Shawn two years ago just isn't there now.

Daniel became intolerable for me when they made him Maggie's son. That's really what did his character in.
I didn't have a problem with Jennifer and Daniel before Jack returned but the writing for them has been atrocious since Jack's death.Both actors are probably aware of the Soap Opera Digest poll months ago saying only 4% liked the couple and continuing negative feedback.I wonder if this has impact on the way both are playing scenes with each other.
I like the writing for Cameron as a earnest good guy who loves Abby and truly cares about Chad.They are writing Chad as a pig.He is taking advantage of Cameron's concern for him.He is hostile toward Cameron claiming Cameron took advantage of his doctor's appointment to date Abby when he in fact intruded in the relationship between Cameron and Abby.When talking to Cameron it occurred to him that Cameron loves Abby and he seemed surprised that Cameron actually loved her.He knew he was Abby's first love and while talking to EJ referred to their "love making" as "taking the plunge" which I found to be extremely tacky.At this point I do not see the Chad
and Abby relationship as rootable.

seriously this day needs to end!!!
I agree especially so that Jennifer can stop wearing that ugly blue dress and Abigail can stop wearing that flowery, table cloth that looks like a jump suit outfit.
Does anyone know the date this day actually began? I really would like to know if anyone can actually remember,I know I can't.Why is it the "day" lasts the longest when the actresses are wearing the most godawful clothes? I thought it was especially disconcerting for Abby to have sex with Chad then go all over town wearing the same clothes without being shown as having taken a shower.They did the same thing after Kristen had sex with Brady.

Daytime Royalty Interview with Nathan Owens
I really liked Cameron and Abby,I thought they were a sweet couple and for various reasons Salem needs a doctor in addition to Kayla and Daniel.I had hoped the character and actor would have more time to grow as did Gabi and Camilla Banus.I think the writing for Cameron was a problem as well.I 'm sorry Nathan Owens is leaving.I wish him all the best in whatever he decides to do next.

Lysie is right.Alison Sweeney needs to take acting lessons.She should contact Arianne Zuiker and Casey Moss for names ASAP!!!
When the camera cut to her face several times during Velma's,I mean Abe's statement she had all these awful facial contortions to convey surprise,hope,gratitude,happiness,etc.During sex scenes she looked like she was about to do that scrunchy faced crying.Court room and sex scenes were both cringeworthy.They should only have shown her face when the charge was dropped and she should have stayed in the living room with the kids.I still wonder why Trask did not charge Sami with perjury for lying during her testimony in the grand jury proceeding.
I loved Sami asking EJ what he did to get the case dismissed.Asking if he put pressure on Stefano.He's already keeping secrets from her since he did not tell her Stefano now has the house,DE,and him as his beck and call as well as the requirement that the children live in the mansion.I wish they had a hidden camera in the living room so that there was a possibilty of Sami seeing a tape of EJ begging,crying,
sniveling,groveling,and crawling to Stefano on his knees to kiss Stefano's ring.I must admit that the flashback of this will never get old for me.
I agree with everything you said!

I would love for Stefano to bring out the hiden cameras (it was once mentioned that the whole house is being filmed at all times) and show Sami the pathetic groveling, sniveling, begging crawling EJ. Heck let Lucas and Rafe see it too...and Hope, Marlena and NICOLE. NOW that would be fun TV and show worth watching.

Sami asked EJ if he put pressure on Stefano?? :lol: I didn't know that happened! :teehee: :teehee:

I love the flashbacks too! I'd rather see EJ groveling and kissing the ring way more than having to see Kristen rapeing Eric!
I think that would be an excellent idea. It would show everyone in Salem the lenghts to which EJ is willing to go to so that his Samantha would be free and happy with her family. EJ sacrificed his freedom from being Stephano's soldier so that Sami can be free. He grew in my eyes for doing this, and most likely he would in Sami's eyes AND her family's eyes too, considering that the whole reason for her being in jail in the first place was for saving the hairy one - EJ's enemy, the man responsible for stealing his children.

What EJ did left no doubt that he loves his Sami and their children to the point of sacrificing his life and freedom for them.
I think the crying,groveling,knee crawling,and ring kissing says a lot about the personality/character of EJ DiMera.The writers could have shown EJ asking Stefano to help Sami and Stefano's terms for giving that help while standing facing Stefano then agreeing to those terms without debasing himself and with a subtext of Stefano having the upper hand because of the urgency of the situation but planning a counter move later but they did not.The writers showed him as a weak man totally subservient to Stefano.I have heard references to the godfather concerning the storyline for EJ and Sami.I have seen the Godfather.Can anyone who has seen the movie visualize Michael Corleone behaving like EJ? I think not.
EJ has a penchant to make threatening statements to others especially Nicole,Lucas,and Rafe.I too love the idea of Nicole,Lucas,and Rafe seeing a video of EJ "bargaining" with Stefano for Sami's freedom so they could have a flashback the next time EJ approaches them in a menacing maner.I am pleasantly surprised that there is a consenus of opinion that flashbacks of these scenes of Stefano and EJ should be seen by Nicole,Lucas,Rafe as welll as other residents of Salem and repeated often.If the powers that be make the video viewing by Nicole,Lucas,and Rafe as well as the flashbacks happen,I for one would be a truly happy camper.

So Sami will finally learn the real sacrifice EJ made for her, cannot wait to see these scenes. In typical Sami fashion I am sure she will go after Stefano :lol:

Fun times ahead at Casa Dimera.
After what Stefano did to EJ,who he loves,I would love to see what Stefano would do so Sami,if she went after him.

Hopefully she will be grateful then once she realizes what a sacrifice he made for her.
Well she wasn't grateful for what Lucas and Rafe did for her so I hope EJ does not hold breath waiting for her to be grateful to him either.

Ok, how many times are we going to keep getting the same Sami and EJ have a huge fight spoiler only for them to make up by the end of the episode........so dull, move on already!

I'm purposefully ignoring the Kayla/JJ spoiler. I'm still very angry at what this show is trying to do to the memory of Jack and now they want to use this horrible mistake to paint him as a villain of some kind to snap JJ back in line along with 99% of the town believing in the wonderfulness that is douche Dr Daniel Jonas, how riveting.
I'm okay with the huge fight and make up as long as it does not involve sex.

Eric lets Marlena hypnotize him; Kristen threatens Victor; Brady and Nicole butt heads over Eric; J.J. sneaks into Daniel's apartment; Theresa makes an offer to Jennifer.

9/24/2013
Eric opens up to Father Matt about his dreams; Victor and Marlena draw Brady's suspicions; Theresa goes to Caroline for help; J.J. and his friends party at Daniel's apartment; Daniel and Parker visit Chloe.

9/25/2013
Stefano demands E.J. meet his demands; Cameron tries to accept Abigail and Chad's relationship; Daniel notices something amiss at home; Theresa goes to J.J. for help.

9/26/2013
Daniel tries to make a deal with J.J.; Theresa intends to get revenge against Jennifer; E.J. uses Chad's secret against him; Will catches Gabi with Nick; Rafe realizes he hasn't gotten as far with Jordan as he thought.

9/27/2013
Brady and Kristen start Pre-Cana with Eric; Chad gives Abigail a gift; Will gets angry with Gabi, Nick and Sonny; Nicole gets a job offer.
Can't wait to see Stefano starting to put the screws to EJ.
What the heck does Theresa have to offer Jennifer?What help can JJ possibly provide to Theresa? I hope Theresa is not going to ask Caroline to intercede with Jennifer or Kayla on her behalf.She is lucky she just got fired.Jennifer could have called the police.
Daniel is a delusional idiot.I don't see why he thinks JJ would actually honor a deal made with him?
I didn't mind Nicole working at the rectory but I am ready for her to move on to something new.Maybe she'll have less time to see Daniel and Jennifer.
Chad behaved like a pig so I am interested in seeing what he gives Abby as a gift.

Always love a good Kristen vs. Nicole! :cheer:

"What, that I told Brady I'd rather see him with Lindsay Lohan than you?" LMAO!!!

Finally Kristen started to think about what the heck Nicole was actually doing there.

Also, always love Victor & Nicole! Can't believe I would still see the day that they would be martini-ing it up together, even if it was just briefly. Loved Kristen seeing them at the end. At this point she just has to put two and two together already. Can't believe she fell for Marlena's act of "defending her" - LOL! As if!

Marlena & Victor great together too, but I'm gonna say Marlena's a bitch when it comes to Nicole. "That loose cannon"? I'm sorry, and where exactly have YOU gotten with your own Kristen plots? Nowhere? LOL.

Lmao @ at quick half an hour wrap up for one of the show's leading storylines for the summer! You could clearly see how quickly the show just wanted to wrap it all up and be done with it. Not that I'm complaining!!! However, you mean to tell me NONE of this evidence was ever even hinted at before during all of the Salem PD's investigations? I mean, I know that Stefano is the be all end all of Salem and he can do whatever and make anything happen, but he actually planted all of this into this person's apartment? And where exactly is this woman? Has she been paid off to go to Mexico, how did Stefano get her to agree to all of this? Is there any such woman? This was kind of hasty, lol.

Something also doesn't add up here. So Sami is now supposed to find out what EJ did and be upset about it? I mean, come one, he got you free. It shouldn't matter how he did it. Any kind of life is better than life behind bars. I'm definitely thinking there is nothing there, don't go biting off the hand that feeds you, Sami.

LOL @ Theresa calling Jen and Kayla self-richeous bitches. Agreed on the Jennifer front. However, that still doesn't mean I like or accept Theresa and/or whatever she is up to. She is a no good, greedy bitch.

Jennifer is still looking HIDEOUS, OMG! And Maggie, ugh, get that mess out of my screen.
I don't think Stefano planted anything. He simply knew about Bernardi's double life and kept it hidden by having the nurse kill Bernardi and then get paid off. Without knowledge of the affair, the Salem PD had no reason to come across this information.
Velma.I mean Abe said the woman went to Morocco because they don't have an extradition treaty with the United States.She is supposed to have agreed to kill Bernardi after he told her he would never leave Marge because he loved Timmy too much.I'm glad the writers gave Bernardi that saving grace even though we will not likely hear of him,Marge,or Timmy again.The nurse might have been Stefano's plant at the hospital.Stefano probably had her finish off Bernardi so Bernardi coud not testify against him which Bermardi might have done if he survived after Sami shot him.She wanted Bernardi to leave his wife,Bernardi said no,and Stefano probably offered her plenty of money.It was a win win for her.She got revenge for Bernardi not leaving his wife and probably enough money to make her a wealthy woman.

When is Jennifer at work long enough to keep detailed records of Theresa's comings and goings at the office?
We rarely see ourselves as others see up.I thought of that saying when Jennifer was listing Theresa's deficiencies as a employee.Late for work,leaving work early,three hour lunches.Pot meet kettle.

So Daniel and Eric carpooled to the capital city with the hotel and Eric goes home alone, forcing Daniel to hitch a ride evidently. I am crossing my fingers that a serial killer will pick him up.
Daniel told Eric he would rent a car to return to Salem so the serial killer will have to be the hitchhiker.

Loved Eric and Marlena's scenes. I always enjoy watching Marlena with her children.

I know I've written this before but I wish Eric would dress in something other than the priest outfit even if he put a sweater over it when he went out would be fine with me.

I didn't enjoy the Justin/JJ scenes. I know JJ is being difficult but he's been through a lot and he has been dealing with most of it on his own when he was away at school. Justin tends to be able to "see" both sides of a situation so I was hoping he would understand JJ's pain as I was hoping Hope would as well. He is making bad decisions but no person is trying to help him find solutions only telling them how much this is hurting his mother/what a wonderful guy Daniel is/how the entire family is hurting from all this. The fact is, the drug issues started when he was away at school so seeing his mother with Daniel was a catalyst for the behaviour and his pain to escalate. It bothers me that there is not one person who genuinely wants to help JJ find solutions that might work. All talk and no action is meaningless - stage an intervention, go to Marlena for suggestions, have Jennifer explore her own past and her teenage years and try relating to him on that level - Jennifer's "tough love" approach is laughable. It may work in some situations but not this one where JJ has already been away from his family. Why not send him back to England? that way she won't have to deal with the situation.

I fear this storyline will end with JJ doing something really stupid and ending up hurt and being saved by Saint Doctor Daniel. JJ will realize the errors of his ways and viewers will get a beautiful scene :hmmph: where he grovels at his feet for forgiveness ... :facepalm:

JJ acted like an ass with Justin just as he did with Nicole and every other adult.Justin did him a huge favor getting drug dealing knocked down to misdemeanor possession and he treated Justin like a flunky.JJ is not even paying Justin,Jennifer hired him.I am not giving a pass because of Jack's death,he is a ungrateful lying drug dealing ass.

Loathe Hope.Both her and Trask were just down right annoying. I miss Bo so much.

I'm so sick of the flashbacks being used so much lately. Enough already. although, seeing EJ groveling was still priceless LOL

Jordan- need to find someone more interesting for her.

Kate- go get a damn life. pathetic stalker

Maggie/Dr. D-bag can go away now and take Eric, Brady, Kristen and honestly half of Salem with them.

Why not pair FatherBore/Dr. D-Bag together and end the misery of these two useless characters.

Run Nicole Run!!

Justin and the social media. Love it LOL I love seeing some "Kiriakis" coming through LOL. Good job, Counselor. :)


I loved the flash back of Stefano telling EJ that EJ will beg him to take back what EJ had stolen from him and the groveling flashback.While it's unlikely there will be many occasion warranting a flash back of the former,I hope they use the later whenever Stefano cracks the whip where EJ and Sami are concerned in the next few months.
Kate needs a friend.Who does she have as a friend other than Rafe? I think Kate's protectiveness concerning Rafe is that she feels guilty for being the reason Stefano sent Bernardi after Rafe again and believes Stefano might still attempt to harm him.I believe she cares about Rafe as friend and former lover,she wants to do all she can to prevent harm to him until he is back on his feet and capable of defending himself against whatever Stefano might do.Kate is not the sort of person to desert someone she cares about and who she believes needs her.Nicole no longer visits him,which they could easily have done instead of sending her all over Salem to Fetch prop, and Rafe's only family in Salem are Gabi and little Arianna.Gabi has a new baby and school so she can't be there for Rafe as much as she would like.Kate doesn't have to be in her office to work.How often have we seen Victor,Brady,or Kristin at work.Before Sami was jailed,when was the last time you actually saw her or EJ at work?

Tsk.Tsk.Give credit where credit is due.EJ did come up with the idea of begging,crying,sniveling,and crawling to Stefano on his knees to kiss Stefano's ring which will ultimately lead to her acquittal (or whatever happens tomorrow to free her).
