Yeah. Today sucked. There are so many elephants walking around the various sets of Salem that it's just exhausting to watch. It's like Days is playing a game. What's the best way to showcase all the potential we're not airing while putting on a completely drama free show?

John/Brady/Marlena - Well, this story just keeps getting worse. But the worst part today for me was when Brady blew up. I don't mind him being mad at all, but he called his dad a son of a bitch. That just...ergh. And I wish John and Marlena both could have had a different reaction to that. I wish Marlena could have better reactions all the way around. "Better" is probably the wrong word. All she gets to do is stand there and stare. There's just nothing entertaining about the way they've done this story. And it absolutely blows my mind that of the three of them, Deidre Hall is the one getting the least to do. Seriously? Let's put the best of the bunch in the background and let the two hams carry the story.

Kristen/EJ - I swear they improv'd their scenes today. And they were terrible. The biggest elephant right now is the one those two are riding around on. She's referencing a wedding and a reveal that he was a major part of, but there's no acknowledgment of it. Just do it. Yeah, you screwed up because of their ages. Whatever. We'll get over it. Except maybe it's good that they're ignoring it because the actors don't seem up to it. James plays sibling scenes like EJ is an 11 year old girl.

Maggie/Nancy/Chloe - I actually didn't have a huge issue with Maggie today. I mean, the Dannifer stuff is annoying, but since she was right today, it was less grating. Meanwhile, I haven't found one thing entertaining about Nancy this time. I don't remember having an issue with her before, but nothing she is doing is enjoyable, and much of it is just plain bad. And I'm beyond ready for Chloe to go.

Jennifer/Daniel - I literally have no memory of their scenes.

Cameron/Abby /Anne - I don't find Anne entertaining either. I just don't have enough background on her. I was sort of happy to hear her lump all the families into her pathetic whining because it always annoys me when the Bradys and Hortons are called out for being judgmental since I think the Kiriakises and DiMeras are about 100x more judgmental than the others could ever be, but really...it was hard to even like that because Anne's whining just doesn't make sense. And what exactly is her job? Why does she have claim to the hospital? I also have no memory of Abby and Cameron.


Y'all. There was another character named after me today.

And the dialogue never did make sense. None of it.
:roflol:

This comment alone made today's eppi worth it.



But yeah, I agree this eppi fell pretty flat.



(And I agree, they really should be playing up that EJ is/was supposed to be Kristen & John's "son", not that he's her "brother)".

Ok, I don't get it. What do you mean there was a character named after you?
There's nothing to get. There was a character with my name, lol. Yesterday, there was one with my middle name (my twitter name). Today there was one with my actual name.
That's..weird. Who was the character? I must have missed the scenes.
You probably saw the scenes and didn't know it was my name. ;)
Ok...did they do it in a mocking way?

Just weird.

LMAO. No. Both today and yesterday it was just a random name that was said several times. And before someone goes away from here thinking that I think Days is paying me a tribute...I'm sure it was a coincidence. It just cracked me up.

I don't mind him being mad at all, but he called his dad a son of a bitch.
Shirley Jones is going to need him to take that back.

She was kind of a bitch. Hiding in South America while her son was being brainwashed and his family was being kidnapped over and over...

LOL

EJ acting like an 11 yr old girl is what made their conversation so enjoyable at the beginning. I think the EJ/Kristen scenes were the only parts I actually liked in the entire episode.

It was . . . interesting to see EJ frustrated by the fact that, even though Kristen's been in Salem for months now, he still knows almost nothing about her. I thought it was a nice touch and hopefully it sets up for some more DiMera sibling scenes between the two (since we're not getting Peter back *cries*).

I must admit that I have completely lost hope in them referencing Baby Elvis/Kristen/John in a non-joking manner. They seriously messed up by making EJ the baby in the first place.

You know, it really would be 50 shades of eerily awesome if Kristen went ever so slightly delusional and started thinking of and (privately) referring to EJ as her long-lost son with John.

...but...but...EJ was veryyy busy with Sami during that time he could have gotten to know his "sister", right? I kind-of hate how this show ignores the fact that Kristen tried to steal baby Elvis from Susan. Hello, your "sister" tried to steal you away from your own mother. Not a mention of that for some added and well-deserved snark?!

I kind of miss Peter. He had more of a DiMera vibe than EJ or even Kristen have ever exuded.

Blech. Fetch.

Need I say more?

Oh, Chloe, you should've left the scheming to Nancy.

Maybe we wouldn't all be suffering now.

SOCK BUN is alive and well for day two.

WHEN WILL IT END??

Okay, can Jen & Dan just kiss & make up & both go to the conference in the same way that Don Craig went to the mailbox?

Marlena just opened her eyes!!

It's a March miracle!!

Marlena's been struck mute.

I like these scenes between Ej & Kristen.

EJ is now playing the role of Lexie while Kristen is playing EJ.

But I still like it.

I wish Chloe would punch Mag in the mouth.

Yeah Jen, Jack, the guy you were married to, ya know the one you threw under the bus & down the elevator shaft??

Oh gawd, why couldn't you have just let her die Doc Orange?

Parker stole one of Caroline's vests.

Kristen's having a little meltdown.

Meanwhile, Brady's having a HUGE meltdown.

I remember a few weeks ago when I was thoroughly entertained and now most of the stories are stupid, drama less plots highlighting boring characters I don't give a luck about.

I knew the honeymoon had to end.
