That's why I'm digging the triangle. Even though it's an unpopular opinion, I like Ben. He's one of the only "good guys" on the show that doesn't need constant praise and (so far), he doesn't treat women poorly. Then you have the contrast with Chad, who is (supposedly) a bad guy, who still clearly shares an attraction with Abigail. It really does remind me of Shawn/Belle/Philip, and I'm enjoying the contrast so far. I just wish the show would focus on that aspect of the story and actually have Chad do something that's actually villainous to keep Ben and Abigail apart instead of having Chad walking around town bragging to Rafe about all the sex he's having with Jordan. Boring!
Well said. I may not be a huge Ben fan but he is a decent guy. In regards to Chad, I'm still confused as to why he is or was using Jordan. Is it to find out more about Clyde so he can plot against Kate? They really haven't clued us in on to his motivations very well. It seems like this show leaves out the details so they can have some big revelation down the road, but it often falls flat.
I'm not sure, but I'm not enjoying the Clyde/Jordan aspect of the story at all. I hope whatever is revealed in the coming months between Clyde and Jordan results in both of them leaving town. If we have to keep any of the Poplar Bluff crew, I'd want to keep Ben. As far as I'm concerned, Everything that has to do with Clyde and Jordan is just filler until CS leaves.
I just love James Read. I think he's a caliber of actor that we don't see often on daytime. Does that mean they'll do anything of equal value with his character? No, but he's an actor who is more than earning his paycheck. My worries about the character, however, are two-fold: 1) the obvious misstep of making him a child rapist (easy-ish to erase if so desired) and 2) (more difficult to fix) the fact that the writers have had Clyde plant storyline seeds all over town and nothing has yet come of it in MONTHS. The latter is the same terrible fate that befell the Jordan character, so it makes me worry.

But I really think he's so worth keeping around regardless. Stefano is such a pathetic shell of what he once was; Clyde could easily and believably fill that void.

Kate and Clyde. They actually cracked me up with their delight in scheming together. Kate works for me in a role like this with a man like him. I do have a problem with Clyde's background and Kate's history with Curtis. The writers have made bad choices with this story because JR and LK look good together. I feel as though they wasted an opportunity to create a devious pair who could have lasted for much longer than they probably will. When Clyde's gone. I hope they consider Bill Horton coming back on the scene or to bring in another businessman shark for Kate to tango with.




Don't break my Clyde-loving heart, Hamilton! What do you know that I don't? Or are you just postulating?
I'm in favor of longevity for this entertaining pairing. I think they complement each other in fun way so I would never want to break your Clyde-loving heart. I know no secrets. I was left wondering because LK posted a pic of Galen, but none of James after the Thanksgiving break. It'd be nice to get a bts pic from LK of the two of them back at work in the new year to know for sure if Clyde sticks around after Jordan's March exit. I don't know if they are trying to keep it a secret or not so fans are kept guessing about how her exit will play out.

I know being a big fan of Lauren's you've listened to all her interviews. Is your impression he is still filming and there is more story to come for them? RSW has made it pretty clear that Ben is still in Salem. My only concern is Clyde's crime of molesting Jordan. How does he shake that and stay once that revelation comes out? I wouldn't expect him to get away with it. That's why I made the original comment of when Clyde is gone.
I know as much as you. But if they just did a podcast interview together a few weeks ago, it stands to reason that he'll be around for at least another 5 months. Unless he's caught on quick and is already really good at not showing his hand. I don't know how these actors do it; I'd be slipping up constantly.

I can't tell if Sonny is ooc because we never really got to know him fully I get Chad changing in character he was shot trying to protect the brother who ended up sleeping with his ex girlfriend He was around Stefano influence for almost a year Jordan sudden change of character comes from what exactly all of the sudden she's not scared & protective of herself In which event cause such was it Ben was it Abby, was it Rafe, Kate, Clyde who or what idk As for the show seeming different I think it's because Sami/Ej Nick/Gabi/ Brady/Kristen s/ls was going on since 2012 & the s/ls are not there so it's going to seem different I guess :$
But we know few things about Sonny. He was good in business and had an interest in business since he was a child. That was established right when he came to town. We know that the club was his idea, he did all the hard work and Chad was the junior partner. Sonny put together the original investors and came up with all the finances. Chad didn't even know who were the other investors. We knew that. We also know that Sonny is devoted to Will. He supported him, and he never felt and treated Will like a freeloader. But lately, all he does is wring his hands. And clueless, tag along Chad is all of a sudden an extremely cunning businessman who wants to screw over his friend.

And where did Chad get all this money. Old Chad was broke and didn't put a penny in the business.
I'm still trying to figure out how Chad is functioning as co-CEO of DiMera Enterprises. We never see him work. The rest of the time he is up to some business with the club (probably screwing over Sonny), talking on the phone with Stefano, trading barbs with Ben & Rafe, and sexing up Jordan.
As per usual, Chad being co-CEO is just a plot point, not a character study. It's the writers attempt to show us (along with telling us every 5 seconds) that Junior is now "just like" his father. He graduated from DiMera Finishing School - he now knows how to issue veiled threats, operate a guillotine, drink hard liquor neat, etc. To the viewer who has been watching for longer than those 5 seconds, however, it's ridiculous, desperate, and empty.

And I want to like this character/actor. Showing just one or two scenes/scenarios where he fumbles the ball - where the steep learning curve is made apparent - would go a long way towards making this guy endearing, human, and interesting.

The good: Always love seeing Doug and Julie who looked fantastic today. Jarlena scenes with baby Ari, the Hortons doing the Christmas tradition and I love Haiden.

The bad: All things Jonas especially Melanie and her horrendous tan father, in fairness the only Jonas worth caring about is Parker poor kid stuck with them. Maggie lording over the Hortons and Kirakis families.

The not needed: JJ/Paige scenes today.

I'm probably the only one that finds Parker as annoying as his father. I don't like finding children annoying, but maybe if they didn't coach him to smile constantly like a demented clown, I wouldn't mind him.

No you're not the only on who finds Parker annoying, and your explanation as to why is spot-on! I know the actor is only doing what he's instructed to do, but it irritates me to no end. It's almost creepy.

And also, why does Daniel have to carry Parker around town everywhere they go? Put that boy down and let him walk!
You know this show doesn't have the "fancy" camerawork to make that happen! :blulaugh:

Kate just assumes Marlena has no life.
And what exactly did Kate have on her agenda? Going home to an almist empty house so she could get a phone call from someone she hates?
Well technically she's set to meet up with her current beau. If we're going off simply what's onscreen, Kate does currently have more of a social life. There certainly have been times when that's flipped, but now? Snarky and unnecessary as it is, Kate's right.
She didn't even ask Marlena if she had plans.

Current beau? Don't you mean current f***buddy? Has Kate even told anyone that she!s screwing Clyde?
She does love a fuck buddy, but I don't know if I'd put Clyde in that category. Of course the, the writers could always go that reductive route (as is their wont), but I think the door of possibilities for more is still open. We'll see.

And of course she's not going to ask Marlena if she has plans. As Marlena so aptly put it, "That's Kate for you..." In Marlena's comment lies an acknowledgement of Kate's selfishness, yes, but I think she also 'gets' Kate's need to be funny and sardonic in large group settings. She obviously belongs with all of them at Christmas, but I think a part of her doesn't think she belongs with them. Hence the subversive comments. A bit childish, yes, but "that's Kate for you..."

What the heck happened to Marlena and Clyde's therapy sessions? I was into that. Clyde, how are you going to make any progress with your daddy issues if you never go to therapy?

SOD: Eve and JJ have sex-- AGAIN!
I literally could take the comment I just made in the Lucas/Adrienne thread and write it here.

Cliff Notes version: This is so lazy.

SOD: Lucas Comforts Adrienne
This is so lazy. Two peripheral characters with nothing to do. I know! Let's throw them together. I suppose the recognition that both actors are talented and therefore should be used is something, but still...lazy, lazy, lazy.

Definitely here for Victor and Clyde. That's a formidable match if there ever was one. If I had to choose a side, it would be Clyde's. Victor's become to nasty and bitter for my liking.

Kate & Roman: spurts of good character-driven writing, but mostly just awful nonsense. I never bought them as a couple, because I couldn't see what 'in da hell' Kate saw in him. With Clyde, there's charm, power, a great smile, power, mystery...did I mention power? (Kate would never turn that down.)
I can't choose Clyde the molestor.
I'm sticking my head in the sand and refusing to believe he's a molestor until Jordan exits and we get the full story.

I have to agree that the majority of the reason why I would have preferred CR over KP is nostalgia,(and pettiness lol) but it is also her look in general. KP is 5'10 and CR is 5'3. KP seems like a giant next to the other actors. If they ever bring back Billy W. as Frankie it would look so awkward. I'm not saying KP is not attractive, but she's not really the seductress type. Even her hands are kind of masculine. Sorry. I just have never felt her as Eve. This is just someone named Eve, this new character. :shrug:
I agree, she's a good actress but she is a total miscast.
Sindacco: Unrelated, but your avi is everything.

Now, writers, please give him a story and keep him away from Kate. Race needs a romance of his own..not just sex scenes with a woman old enough to be his mother.
Rafe has been *lucky* to share space, let alone a bed with (as Clyde put it) "the baddest SOB in Salem." Even though Kate was right today - they never seemed to be on the road to commitment - I think Rate had way more chemistry than he and Jordan ever had.

I haven't been on Kate's side much with this Jordan obsession, but she got some empathy from me today. Stefano'so vindictive nature knows no bounds and a PT with no background showing up just days after he was attacked by a disguised hospital worker would raise several red flags. I don't know if it was Lauren's performance or the writing or both but I started to see her side of it.

Abby's bun at the hospital was so chic. That's all I got for today.

Abigail and Melanie are friends? Isn't there like gallons of bad blood between them from her last stay in Salem? I didn't watch much that time around. Either way their coffee-mug-holding girl talk was pukey.

Chad, I need you to change your shirt. I can see your nipples.

Speaking if nipples, Clyde's! (Ha! Sorry to those who didn't enjoy that mental replay.) However, I love these two together and I'm actually surprised more don't. Acting-wise, James Read is on par with Lauren. Plus he's a good-looking older man. And the character is smart, charming, mysterious, devious --- how is he not Kate's long lost soulmate? They just need to revise the whole child rapist thing, which I think they will. Long live those two crazy kids!
