I still have to chuckle that she's not smart enough to figure out who's really Steve's wife, though! :P

I think it will be interesting to see how nuJohn takes to the herd with baby twins in tow moving in.  His and Rolf's reaction will be hilarious, I'm sure.


I wonder if this was done in part to allow Drake to interact with kids more, seeing as his interaction with Claire (Alina Foley) was a hit. Are kids his ticket to finding his heart before Marlena is? Stay tuned!

Sami, EJ and the twins are moving into the mansion?

The twins might be too young to have good interactions with John IMO.

Didn't they SORASE them a little? A six month old can start having interaction and reaction to an adult. Certainly, it would give Drake a chance to show that mellow side again.

Maybe. But, he can't have the little conversations with the twins. There were also people saying that he was using Claire as an inside source to know what Marlena and Claire's parents were talking about or up to

Well, that's a new one on me. I just heard kudos about how great they were together.
And, you don't need a two-way conversations to have great scenes with a baby. Body language and facial expressions can say a lot.

To me, the age difference between Braun and Nichols is too great.  TB makes SN seem old when they are in scenes together.  With MBE and SN I never think that although there ia gulf between those two age-wise as well.  They fit.  And frankly all the flashbacks are not hot or sexy but scenes I just wish would end quickly.  I cannot put my finger on what is missing.  But I fail to believe the whole premise.  How could Steve, even memory deprived Steve have failed to see  Ava was living on the ragged edge of sanity?  Steve lives and depends on his instincts.  He would not have missed the signs.  Secondly, I get no real feelings of passion or deep emotional attachment from Steve.  TB is doing a great job but there is something missing with her as well.  So far, her scenes with KA have far more resonance than anything else shown.

I just hope that Ava can be salvaged and used more effectively.  This sl is just not doing what I hoped it would, for me.

As far as not feeling the same intensity on Steve's part, I am wondering if that is because Ava has this whole romance a lot more built up than it actually was.

If you think about it, in the Steve's only flashback, they were drinking Jack out of bottle and laughing about some blackmail crime they just pulled on someone - Ava mentions getting married, Steve seems interested in moving up her father's business and turns to sex when Ava talks about commitment. Not high romance.

In Ava's first flashback at the beach, Ava asks Steve if he is happy. He has a fairly noncommital "Yeah."

In Ava's flashback of the bed love scene, in nearly every sentence talked about her *father*.

Ava thought Hope was Kayla in part because of the close way Steve was *hugging* Hope in the pic. lol Her perception of love and affection are a little skewed. And she thinks pretty highly of herself by rejecting the claim from her bodyguard that Kayla was actually Steve's wife, in part because Hope is the one who looks most like Ava.


Or maybe it just isn't working because Stephen and Mary Beth have such unique chemistry, any other match up will always pale in comparison*. ;)


*My caveat on this is actually a Steve/Hope pairing (not that I would ever go for it but they really click together) and I have to admit that Peter and Mary Beth almost have too much chemistry for me sometimes. :P

Good points! I didn't consider the hugging aspect, but Steve did seem detached in those flashbacks.
BTW, I've been watching L&O SVU, and have seen the promo at least twice in the past hour.

Days: Weekly Discussion!
Uh, well, Islam allows an adoptive parent to marry his/her adopted child.. Technically, Islam does not approve of adopting children and letting them inherit, if I understand this correctly.

wikipedia says most Western civilizations consider adoption like blood relations, but it's open to interpretation.

Eh, for me, they just don't shoot sparks, related or not. I cringe to think they'll be force fed on us. I don't think enough people are crazy about them.

Days: Weekly Discussion!
Any lawyers here? I'd be interested in the legalities of being involved with an adopted close relative. I know it would differ from state to state. Maybe this will be my nightly Internet research.

Go Days!!

Pretty good choices! I didn't like MM when she first came on, but when Belle was allowed to be flawed and was CALLED on being flawed and bitchy, MM plays it to the hilt. Then, the emotional scenes (first when she had the miscarriage two years ago), made me sit up and take notice.
Ed Scott...goes without saying!!
Tuc Watkins and Ron Cavalleri, too.

I agree, although I really love Jawn. It's a dilemma. I guess the best thing they could have done was to make it known right away he wasn't dead, because I'm willing to bet anyone who has watched Days for any length of time figured it wouldn't last, anyway.

Point to be considered: I realize that Philip is more of a consistent on the show, but originally, JKJ was only signed to a year contract, I believe, when he returned. Wasn't Steve Johnson, years ago, originally supposed to be a short term character? There's no reason to believe they might not incorporate Ava and keep her later. Right now, of course, it doesn't look like that's the plan, but you know the power of redemption! :D  They could choose, later down the road, to continue the character.

I think Jay Johnson resigned and it just wasn't announced. He only signed for a year as the mags said but now it seems he is good until January 2009.

Great point about Steve. When he first came on, he was nothing. There wasn't much there for redemption and he was nothing but a thug. No one cared at all and somewhere down the line that changed. I think they were getting a feel if Steve would take off or not and, when they got the sense he did, they started putting more effort into him and people began caring. That is why I don't think someone like Ava compares to a Gigi on OLTL or any new character that right off the bat seems to be someone who will be around for awhile. You can always tell what kind of character they will be from the get go and sometimes an audience will care and sometimes they won't and sometimes the writers don't even care if you care because that isn't what is important. The mainstay characters the new character is affecting are really all that matters because most care about them already.

Braun is only on recurring so, as of right now, she doesn't appear to be a long-term character. However, if Tamara likes it and wants to stay and they find some things for her to do to expand her character, then I think there will be more effort put forth to take her in another direction, just like Steve was, so she can stick around.

At the heart of it, though, it's going to depend on the person. Not everyone is going to care about her or the story. It's just the way it is.

Good points. AND, course, then again, LeAnn Hunley as Anna has been becoming more popular (at least, based on what I've seen and the mags summaries I've read), and she's STILL on recurring. As far as I'm concerned, that's a crime.
With Ava, I've just NOW started getting interested with the little "chats" she's been having with Hope. It does need to get moving, but the getting left at the altar story was rather interesting.

I don't think the Lockharts had taken over. There were only Bonnie, Mimi and Patrick for a long time and they were usually compared very negatively to the Brady's.

The problem is it's tough to have a character remain isolated on a soap. Family interaction plays a big part in stories and holidays on the show, a character's job can bring he or she into a story but that usually works best upon introduction.

Personally I'd like the show to rededicate itself to the Horton side of the family and I have hopes for it with recasting Mickey.

You're a glorious person, Tripp!! :D

It pisses me off that two women are going be fighting over EJ's lame ass.

Nicole and Sami fights are old stuff now! I would hate for DAYS to go back to that as well. Bringing back Nicole is a brilliant idea cuz I love her, but it would be useless if they bring her back to battle it out with Sami. She should work for Tony helping him run his company.

Aww, now, this is one of the reasons I'm HAPPY with Nicole coming back. Now, granted, I started rewatching in 2005 after taking many years off, so maybe I didn't get saturated with too many Nicole/Sami fights.

I don't want Ava related to anyone. Can't we just have ONE new character that isn't related to somebody already on the canvas?

but to be honest, those people whoa re not related to people end up getting 25 people cioming to town that are family and they take over the show. plus, i do think it limits them.. i dont think it should, but i think the writers think it does.

so i would rather ava be related to max than not to anyone then in 4 months see her father, dead mother, brother, 2nd cousin twice removed, etc...

Either that, or they end up getting written off...........When was the last time a new family took over the show? The Bradys?

Mimi's family took it over. it didnt last long, but it was painful.

Willow and her brother were already starting to take over. had Hogan not come they would had 18 more family members in about 2 months.

I beg to differ. The Lockharts hardly took over, and I didn't find them painful. Once Mimi married Shawn, she became one of my favorite characters, and I found Bonnie to be a riot, but they were hardly a frontburner family, not by a LONG shot. Otherwise, Mimi wouldn't have been an obstacle to Shawn+Belle, and Bonnie would have ended up with Mickey instead of Maggie. AND, Patrick would have either had Hope or Jennifer.

Just in time for summer viewing! I'd love to see the Kate/Anna dynamic. Frankly, one of my favorite Kate scenes is when she's with Eugenia in the hotel room before setting Sami and Brandon up, dressed at hotel housekeeping. LK has a comedic side that doesn't get to come out much, and playing her comedic side against LH's will be fabulous!
Then, if we have the Ali/Ari show to boot, I'll be one happy customer.

This sounds incredibly lame! :lol:

I get that this is part of the advertising company angle they're going, but I'd rather see them battling in the boardrooms of Titan than makng lame and cheesy commercials.

I don't understand why Kate and Anna are the actresses in the commercial. Couldn't afford to pay residuals to anyone?

OT: Kenny, what is the Secret Room????

:o

If this is a DAYS' s/l name I really don't know them by name....so without be too critical of me for not knowing would somebody care to tell which s/l it was?

If it makes you feel better, I don't know what in the hell that is, either. So, they can criticize two of us. :P

DAYS: Why does EJ need a Visa?
I personally think this is a ploy by somebody to make people fight for some political reason that I can't think of because I'm so damn tired I can't even think of a funny creative stupid thing to say....sorry...........
Is it the CIA?
FBI?
Talaban?
Moral Majority?
Maybe it's a political ploy to focus on the subject of immigration for political purposes?
OK, I'll shut up now.

DAYS: Casting Calls (March)
Maybe Brandon Beemer will come back as Jeff!!! :lol:
Seriously, there were more than a few folks who actually were rooting for a Shawn/Kate liason.

I can't see that "Jawn" is permenant..the Jarlena fans would flip shit and get DOOL cancelled or something, LOL. I wouldn't mind it for longer than average though.

Give him another romance with Anna, or something. That way Tony/Kate can play out, Anna/Jawn can play out and then it will be tons of buildup for Tony and Anna to reunite or whatever. Once that happens, eventually John can regain his memory... but this should take a while. I'm talking JER time, and that can work if it's written well. There just needs to be other events - not Marlena, "are you remembering something?" all day long. I don't mind slow in this case as long as it's WRITTEN well which unfortunately doesn't always happen....

Maybe it's time that the OTHER fans were heard instead? :shrug: It seems that Jawn is a new hit. Certainly, it seems that Drake likes playing him. Let 'em throw a fit. In the end, those fans will probably get the romance they want anyway (not that I want that, but, I must be unselfish :puke: ). In the meantime, I'll love my snarkin' Jawn.
