SoapTown USA has a picture of Carly choking Vivian, which I'm guessing will happen Friday.

I'm wondering if that is not a dream. CC said in the SOW article that Carly was having dreams of Vivian killing her daughter. Maybe in one of them Carly attacks Vivian.

I don't think it's a dream. The spoilers seem to indicate that Carly and Vivian have some sort of a showdown this week. One spoiler says "Carly goes ballistic on Vivian."

I hope it's not a dream. Viv has pretty much had the upper hand in this rivalry so far. It will be good to see Carly go ballistic and even things up a bit.

There is not one couple together on this show I like at the moment. I have no interest in the current couples or people together. Bo and Hope are the only reason I really watch this show. Nothing really makes me want to watch it right now.
I've noticed people on other boards have said they have stopped watching due to Bo's cheating and they don't like Bo and Carly together. There is soo much anger at the moment over Bo's cheating and the Bope breakup that it is going to cause the show to lose viewers if it hasn't already. The Bo and Carly sex pushed it too far. The writers have taken away everything that was good about the show. I think days will lose alot in the ratings if this Bope breakup continues.
I don't understand this at all - aren't you happy they have a story? Or would you rather see them once a month, backburned, boring and happy?

Like I just can't understand the concept behind a soap fan who only likes happy couples. Soap operas as a genre are about just the opposite, lol.

I have to agree that this is better than the back burner and the actors involved are at the top of their game. However for Bo/Hope fans that endured years of a very similar storyline that was often very frustrating under JER's pen, it is annoying that the only storyline Bo and Hope seem to get is an interloper one where its Bo torn between Hope and another one of his exes.

And I have noticed so much excitement at the Bo/Carly pairing. People are loving it, loving that Peter, Kristian and Crystal are more than props for a bunch of kids.
The ratings are higher than they have been in a long time. And for the record, this past year, DAYS got MORE viewers than any other soap.
So if a few Hope fans want to leave and stop watching, I don't think it will be a problem. Most people like a good story, good acting without silly gimmicks, and characters that are interesting.

Most don't get it either. But yes there seems to be a small cadre of fans who prefer a boring, do nothing couple, whose only story is him saving her from some villain every other story, or her dying of cancer, and then a miraculous recovery. As long as the "couple" is in a vacuum, kept in tact, and he worships her 24/7, some are happy. I swear some would prefer the actors fired to seeing their favorite couple do anything but look like bumps on log. Sad.

Soaps are about angst, and problems, and people tune in for that stuff. People tune out for happy ever after boredom.

All of the above.....but at least with Barly, I think the villain is interesting, and I think the damsel will save herself.

Yeah, and it puts me to sleep. Reminds me of John and Marlena. They became hard to like after a while. ZZZZ.

Also, the fact they threw Deidre and Joe's HOT chemistry under the bus for that shit? Pfft.
