I got some unpleasant health news today, so Kristian's pic of her and Daniel makes me feel happy. I love Haiden together. If this is manipulation I hope she does a lot more.

A Bope pic would have made bad news a helluva lot worse.
Sorry to hear you got bad news. Keeping you in prayers.
Amen to that. :grouphug:
Thank you for your kind words.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
They're both defense lawyers, but I wish Days would cast a permanent DA and stick with it. Like a really strong big name actor/actress. Most of Salem is committing crimes constantly so give us a real DA.
They've both done defense work but Justin obviously does corporate law too for his work in Titan and we've seen Aiden doing family law/custody work. It doesn't necessarily need to be a criminal case for them to cross paths professionally, although if each is defending a different suspect in the same case that works too.

Though I do agree, a permanent DA would benefit the show.
True. I would love to see two lawyers that we actually care about going head to head and causing conflict. Its been a long time since they've done that. Its usually Justin, Aiden, Mickey, whoever vs. a dayplayer.
Aiden could be D.A. He told Hope that after law school he worked as a public defender then an Assistant D.A. So he has the experience. We. could see Aiden and Justin face off in a trial then.

I don't have a problem with this. It gives them a storyline. This probably isn't going to be popular, but John, Bo, Steve, and Shane are all too old now to be playing action hero. They need different kinds of stories. I know the time line doesn't work, but I've given up on time making sense on this show a long time ago. This shouldn't affect John and Marlena as a couple, it's not like Paul is a kid who'll be plotting to put his parents together.
They aren't too old to play lead roles. Y&R can serve as an example.
They could take turns as leads of course. I just meant they're at an age where they need different kinds of stories than action adventure stuff. I'm interested to see where this story goes. I would like to see some clashes between Paul and Brady. And I would love to see Belle back of course.

Top 10 Storylines

My earliest memories go back to 1966/1967 so it was a bit hard to pick just ten. I included more details for the 60s/70s stories since they may not be well known to many of you. I quit watching regularly in the late 90s and didn't return full-time until 2006 (when Steve and Kayla returned). I tried to keep them in chronological order.

1. Susan/David/Julie triangle: (includes Julie's best friend, Susan, having a one night stand & getting pregnant by Julie's love, David Martin, & marrying him; Susan shooting & killing David after their baby's accidental death, & being acquitted at trial by reason of insanity; Julie giving her baby by the late David up for adoption; Julie coming back for her baby and marrying adoptive father Scott Banning to spite Susan, who had fallen in love with him).

2. Bill/Mickey/Laura triangle and the secret of Mike's paternity (I think this is the best overall story): (includes Bill raping Laura while she was married to Mickey; Laura being pregnant by Bill but keeping it from Mickey; Bill going to prison for manslaughter; interference from Mickey's lover, Linda Patterson; Mickey's amnesia & his romance on the farm with Maggie; fallout from the reveal of Mike's paternity; introduction of Marlena).

3. Doug/Julie/Addie triangle (my favorite storyline): (includes Doug & Julie's affair while she was married to Scott Banning; Doug eloping with Addie; Addie getting pregnant & having leukemia; the birth of Hope; Scott dying; Julie marrying Bob Anderson; Addie being killed while saving Hope; Julie almost marrying Don Craig; Doug & Julie finally getting married---the first time).

4. Susan Martin has consensual sex in a park with a stranger but she convinces herself and everyone else that it was rape. She becomes pregnant and the stranger turns out to be the brother of the man to whom she was engaged (and later married).

5. Don/Marlena's romance (includes the Marlena/Samantha sanitarium switch; interference from Don's daughter, Donna; DJ's crib death)

6. Julie gets burned and badly scarred (includes her divorcing Doug; Doug marrying Lee Dumonde; Laura having a breakdown and trying to kill herself; Lee trying to have Julie killed and faking her own paralysis; Doug & Julie reuniting and remarrying).

7. Salem Strangler (includes Alex & Marie rekindling their romance; learning Jessica Blake is their daughter; Jessica having multiple personalities; Jessica and Joshua romance; beginning of Roman/Marlena romance)

8. Salem Slasher (includes Renee Dimera's party and murder; Tony being held captive a la "The Man in the Iron Mask," etc.;).

9. Kim/Shane's romance (especially the Dragon and Miami story lines, up until their wedding).

10. Steve/Kayla's romance (all of it until Steve's (supposed) death).
Incredible! ! I have the same list as you! Only difference is I would have Buried Alive at number 10. I know a lot of people are picking story lines from the 80's and 90's, but I've always felt Days greatest stories were during the shows earlier years.

Of course I think they have wonderful chemistry. I don't think they're a couple that others are scheming to keep.them apart. For one, they're too old for that kind of silliness. We saw too much of that kind of crap with Dannifer. I kind of think they will be involved in the Victor / Clyde feud. Perhaps being Clyde lawyer, Aiden figures out he's a criminal and can't tell Hope due to attorney/client privilege.

I would like to see a story where they are on opposite sides of a case.

I finally enjoyed Serena today. It's going to be great when Eric finds out she's been playing him and what she was after was the diamonds. Of course now that Serena is finally getting interesting it looks like MA is out.

I hate that the Jonas Super Sleuths of Salem are figuring everything out. But at least we're getting movement in the JJ EVE and Thrady baby stories.

Since learning of Bo's return I've lost most of my enthusiasm and excitement for the 50th. (Sorry I just loathe the character.)
Funny, it's the complete opposite for me. I'm only holding on because I know Bo and Steve will be back.
I love Steve, hate Bo. Not sure what I'm going to do about watching. Probably watching youtube clips.
It's only one character you hate that will keep you from watching? I wish I had it that easy.
I'm undecided what I'm going to do about watching. Since Bo will be in scenes with characters I like, I'll probably watch for a little while at first and see if I enjoy it. I'll decide from there.

Hope and Aiden have been equivalent to watching paint dry lately. Especially since they totally botched everything (besides Daniel Cosgrove's performance) during the reveal of what really happened with Meredith.

They do have chemistry, but it only gets you so far. Its boring chemistry with the stories or lack of story that they have. I blame the show for propping them up and having everyone just accept them. Kayla was the last holdout and that was only because she thought Aiden was dangerous. Its all drama free now.
I'm hoping Hope and Aiden are going to be involved in the Clyde storyline. Aiden is Clyde's lawyer and Clyde knew yesterday that Hope is a cop without being told. Maybe this is their happy time now before something really bad happens. (Clyde did threaten Ciara when he was talking to Victor earlier.)

So he's not Alexander? That sucks. Wonder how Daniel recognizes him. I do think Xander can be a good young bad guy. It's badly needed.

What I would like to see is whether the show acknowledges that there was a Days of our Lives before th Brady invasion. Will we see anything about Bill/Laura/Mickey, David/Julie/Susan. Brooke Hamilton, Marlena's marriage to Don Craig, Mike/Trish/David, the Grant family? I'm guessing probably not and the anniversary will be all about the Bradys with some Dimeras thrown in too.

The statement from AS's PR guy is funny, since it's very likely Sami will be a big part of the 50th.

Tuesday, March 24th Daily Discussion
The scenes with Hope, Aiden, and Chad seemed awfully random. Hope saying that other than Chad and Kristen the other Dimera siblings were dead, and then saying it would be nice if the Dimera heir was a decent person had me wondering if Aiden might eventually turn out to be a Dimera. I know Stefano and his unknown kids have been done to death. But considering the history that Hope and her loved ones have had with the Dimeras, discovering she's in love with a Dimera would create lots of complications. And with EJ being dead (at least for now) it would give Chad a rival inside the family.

So I guess Victor thinks Clyde was behind the attack on Brady. So Victor will want revenge against Clyde. And then after whatever Victor does, Clyde will want to retaliate against Victor. Looks like the violence in Salem may be revving up again. Lets get the Salem PD involved in investigating what's going on. Interesting that Clyde let Hope know that he knows she's a cop.

It was really nice to see a man pay Nicole some attention simply because he thought she was a beautiful woman. And I couldn't quite make out Xander's accent, was it British?

The actor is Scottish. Not sure what the character's accent was supposed to be.
Hee, obviously I don't have an ear for accents since I thought he was Australian. Okay, if he is Alexander Kiriakis how did he end up with a Scottish accent?

I love seeing Haiden happy and in love (hey don't we all love seeing our couples being happy and in love), but I'm ready for the next drama. Hope there's something before Bo shows up. Still curious if the leaked photo weeks ago is a wedding or not.

Can't wait until the truth about the Thrady baby comes out. I do hope that when they learn about the baby that it's Theresa and Brady who take center stage in the story. Enough with Detective Melanie.

Melissa Archer was saddled with such an awful storyline and character. I'm not sure any actress could have done much with what she was given. A real waste.

If Xander is Alexander Kiriakis, I wonder how they will explain the Australian accent? He is gorgeous though. Wonder who his love interest will be?
More importantly why didn't Victor recognise him when he was Damon.
It was the long hair.

I'm sorry, I just am not on board with Adrienne and Lucas! Yuck! I want Lucas to have a woman, but not Adrienne! Why can't Sheryl come back?
Same here. Dont like Cougar stories.
How is this a "cougar" story? Am I missing something?
She's a decade older than him. To me she just looks too old for him and I want to see real love potential for Lucas. This is not it.
She's seven years older, not ten. I look at Eve/JJ as a cougar story. Adrienne's not that much older than Lucas.

Crappy spoilers again this week. Eh, I'm only sticking around a few more months anyway. If the spoilers continue this bad I'll quit watching even sooner.

The fact that Peter hasnt said a peep on twitter other than a couple of RTs makes me think the show told him to shut it as well. Maybe they told him after the whole "in talks" tweet. Very well couldve told KA to keep quiet too. But it is strange that SOD announced it, so its not like a secret he's coming back... weird
Isn't Kristian's contract coming up for renewal soon? Or has she already re-signed? Maybe there's no tweets if she's still in negotiations.

I thought Chris and Savannah were hot too. I'm not a big fan of adventure stories but I did enjoy Miami.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Well, we'll see. There may be a reason both Peter AND Kristian have been silent about it so far.
It's still stranger (at least for me) that Peter hasn't said anything (a single RT about Bo/Kayla doesn't count) over Kristian having not said anything.
The fact that he's been so quiet is why I think there might be a legit reason for it. Since he hasn't been quiet about it for the last 3 years, there's probably a reason that's different now.
I can't imagine though what the reason could be that PR hasn't tweeted anything. It's already been announced that he's returning so it's not like things are up in the air. His fans would love to hear from him. The people who don't like him (like me) are still going dislike him whether he tweets anything or not.
