THR: EILEEN DAVIDSON RETURNING!

Wow! :cheer: It's still hard to believe that Eileen's return is really happening. Just when I've given up on the DAYS suits, they actually turn around and do something SMART.
Kristen represents that nice shade of grey that always compels you to watch. Back in the day, I couldn't help but feel sorry for her most of the time. :shrug: But, that's what great actresses do. They can spin anything into gold.
A lot of Kristen scenes stand out. But, some of the most deliciously, devilishly played scenes was when a blind Tony nearly stumbled upon John/Kristen making love. Now, THAT, was soapy drama at its best :rockon:
I have to give props to James Reilly. He rocked the shit during this era......
I bet Deidre/Drake did a jig when they heard the news of her return. They probably said, "damn, now we're getting some real story action!"

I enjoyed Susan for comedy, I loved little scenes like when she was at a wedding (Sami/Austin or Marlena/John) and kept telling everyone it wouldn't go through because Salem weddings never do. I don't know how that would work these days since they don't seem to do comedy now, but I always felt entertained by Susan and Mary Moira. I felt like they were the perfect outlet for some of the siliier comedy which I didn't care for when it was pushed on Vivian.
I agree! I really loved Susan. And DAYS could really use humor more often as it did back then!

This is one of my favorite Susan moments. Marlena was preparing to marry John and got all the girls together at Titan to help plan the wedding. To everyone's surprise, Marlena invited Susan. She had me cracking up through the entire "Pretty Woman" montage as Marlena tried on dresses.

*sigh* Too bad we didn't have Louise Sorel still. Louise & Eileen were great together.

Great clips.

It looked a little like Drake Hogestyn was trying not to crack up in that first clip.

The funny thing is aside from the sash I actually liked the dress Susan picked out for Marlena...

I love this clip, both at 4:22 when a drunken Susan calls him "Stefano MiDera" and at 9:25 when she stares Laura down, LoL.

I watched the entire John/Kristen non-wedding on YouTube today. How good DAYS was back then! The music, the suspense... It really just makes your heart break when you watch it today and see all of the wasted potential between so many great actors.

Hopefully Eileen's return is the start of something good. DAYS desperately needs something to give it a good shake-up, and bringing back a badass female villain is definitely a step in the right direction.

I can forsee two things happening - one that once John finds out that Stephano is not EJ's father that he decides to have a DNA test and that he turns out to be EJ's father. has Marlena tested, but she is not a match, and so suspects that Kristen may be EJ's mother, so he goes looking for her.

The other is that when Kristen finds out that EJ is not Stephano's biological son, she somehow has the DNA run herself, and uses the results to get back into John and Marlena's good graces by making him feel guilty for everything that happened to her in the past. Then she'll secretly go about trying to get John back.

What a complete let down!

As if the show hasn't already had a bus load of terrible returns.

I'm so over it already.
LoL
You're a brave soul, Sally.
LoL

Thanks.
But I will proudly stand alone on my ''I hate Kristen/E.D. island''.
No big loss.

I just don't like the character(s) or care much for the actress.
Kristen never seemed that special to me.
I've seen way better villians.
I thought Susan was a stupid joke with that annoying fake voice and horse teeth.
As was the nun.

Maybe 20 years later will change my opinion?

I'm just thankful that at least I'll be free of her until the fall.
:cheer:
:cart:









I am glad I am not the only one, I am not looking forward to her return and I haven't decided if I will watch. I would rather have Alex North back over Kristen Blake.

This return is definitely what I am on pins and needles for.

I was looking through some quotes for my signature... and this seemed fitting to post in this thread. For all you Kristen vs Marlena lovers.

Quote:
 
"The real tragedy is that given the right circumstances, Kristen and Marlena probably could have saved the world together. I know you all would like to throttle her, but in truth, working with Eileen Davidson is the most fun I've had in years. And not a day goes by where she doesn't surprise and amuse me." - Deidre Hall.

I love that quote.

I don't think Kristen was evil by nature. She was evil by nurture. She was actually a good person until she realized the man she loved was in love with someone else. Had Stefano not come along and played on her insecurities, twisting her morals and making her believe it was okay to do bad things as long as they're done for the "right" reasons (ie. protecting your family), things might've turned out different for her. She and Marlena could've actually been friends. But Stefano corrupted her.
