Killing myself slowly
Ok guys, GET READY!|
This is HANDS DOWN the best episode of DAYS I think I have ever seen.
The emotional level of this episode is just something I have not witnessed on DAYS before, at least not at THIS level.
It was THE BEST funeral ever produced in the 70 odd years of daytime drama (and I am NOT overstating that...it was everything a soap funeral should be and MORE).
The entire focus of the episode is on the funeral and John & Marlena.
The opening clip set the stage man (Marlena's return on the pier to John) fade to Marlena at the pier seeminly waiting for John (it was HEARTBREAKING).
The ENTIRE cast is present in this episode except for Blake Berris and Frances Reid.
Victor, Caroline, Hope, Roman, Abe, Anna, Sami and Belle all have eulogies at the funeral and some of them are versed over flashbacks of John and the said characters (beautiful idea). The eulogies were BEAUTIFULLY written and beautifully acted.
Deidre Hall ONCE AGAIN was simply OUTSTANDING as was Martha Madison.
Leann Hunley and Peggy McCay gave great performances but the MVP's of the supporting cast were James Reynolds and Kristian Alfonso who just shattered my heart. They both were AMAZING!
Alison Sweeney was also very good in this episode during Sami's eulogy!
There is an entire scene dedicated to Vivian and her connection to John and her donation to his funeral (that was truly a great move by DAYS) and Brady, Carrie (in Anna's Eulogy) and Eric all are mentioned tastefully.
This episode had it all and was NEARLY flawless. If DAYS is nominated for an emmy and submits this episode THEY WILL WIN!
Marlena's speech to John at the end is the reason Deidre Hall is going to win that FREAKING emmy this year.
The ending is CLASSIC with Stefano coming in and the staredown between Marlena and Stefano is SIMPLY C.L.A.S.S.I.C!
The previews look intense....Hall really looks like she is brining it when Marlena takes on Steffie.
