I've watched DAYS for close to 40 years and have never given up on it; however, a couple times I have taken a "break" for awhile....I feel one of those coming on. Today's show was maybe the straw that broke the camel's back because IMO it was awful. The whole thing. An hour wasted. I didn't even enjoy Ava and Nicole, and the way John talked to Hope about the submarine sex (which I hated originally and still hate) was very yucky. I can't think of a single storyline that I'm interested in right now, so maybe I'll take a mini-vacation from Salem and go weed the flowerbeds for an extra hour a day.
Interesting, because I thought today was a first show after two weeks which was good. There was finally a movement in the Max/Trent saga (I know everyone here knows from spoilers where exactly the story is going, but today there was finallly something more than Max shooting angry looks at Trent, so even general viewers could get an idea where the conflict is) and the confrontation was nice.

I really liked the John/Hope talk, basically just a filler (unless Dena plans to revisit Jope again, but I doubt Corday would alow it) but it again gave us another peak into the way Johnīs mind work and you can tell how much both Drake and writers love and enjoy this Jawn stuff. The dock/shipping war is heating up too and itīs not just empty treads anymore, and I love how vulnerable Nicol really is lately, itīs a mile away from the onenote Nicol who appeared at Victorīs door two months ago. Iīm almost wishing she and EJ really got together because the chemistry is amazing.

And Kate is back in the story with Daniel/Chelsea, maybe itīs just my feeling but I really think Dena has something in her sleeve for those three. I really doubt the only purpose of this sudden Kateīs troubles is just to show us again how good doctor Dan is.

Overall, I thought today show was ok. Nothing exceptional, but the stories are starting to move again and there was a lot of forshadowing of what is coming. Iīm looking forward to Java (I read the preview and it should be hillarious), Phorgan and the dock stuff, and even the Stax story.
