If Lucas only knew that Rafe was messing around with his mom!!!
That's coming....
Can't freakin wait! Maybe then, I could handle Lucas' screeching. :laugh:
and he can finally get his very own penguin and FBI jacket.

Sorry to blow this thread up (lol)..... But...
I remember when it was announced that Melissa Reeves was returning to Days as Jennifer Rose Horton a few years ago. I was thrilled. Jennifer was one of my instantly favorite characters when I began watching the show in 1990. She was good, yet feisty, strong, independent and her shenanigans with Jack were always a blast. Even when the writers separated her from Jack, I was still a huge Jennifer fan. I loved Missy Reeves and the legacy character she portrayed. She was a part of "home" for me. I should've seen the sign when it was in front of my eyes. Jennifer "dying" on a gurney, her heart literally removed and Daniel there to save her. Jennifer Rose Horton did die that day. Zombie Jennifer awoke and took over from there. These days, I wouldn't be upset in the slightest if I read "Melissa Reeves OUT At Days"....and it's a shame. For me, alot of this is blamed on the character of Daniel. This fanboy has yet to see the purpose of his character. I'd be open to Jennifer being with anyone but the storytelling here was all wrong. There's no interest, no rooting value and it's totally mocked the 20+years I've spent knowing Jennifer. So, while I'm enjoying the rest of the show alot more than I was 2 years ago....it's sad that a character I was deeply invested in doesn't do it for me anymore. Maybe someday at the end of an episode, the camera will pan to an underground room where the real Jennifer Horton is watching this whiny fake wannabe Jenn on a monitor and vows to return and claim her rightful space in Salem!
Nice post.

Many of us have been thinking Jennifer hasn't been herself since late 2010. Unfortunately the folks in Salem are only getting around to noticing a change now -- and for all the wrong reasons, of course.

I watched about fifteen minutes, then put GH on. Maybe I'll watch on soapnet later.

Dannifer has become safe level bad.
Please. They passed Safe a long time ago. They're currently in the process of lapping them. Again.

Lucas was funny today. Love how he wanted to celebrating. Lucas holding up the picture of Jack and of course Jennifer acted like he was nothing was frustrating. I think the funniest thing is Lucas thinking that Rafe is a caught. Whatever. I can't wait until he finds out that his mom is doing Rafe. What should happen is that Lucas should talk to Will saying something about Rafe would be good for Jennifer. His reaction would be interesting.

Looks like this is a skippable episode. No need for me to drag down my birthday with this Jen/Dan mess.
:cheer: :birthday: :cheer:
Thanks!
Happy Birthday :cheers: Hope your day isn't ruined by Fetch :x
Thanks! And with the help of all of you lovely posters, I was mercifully spared most of the black hole that is Jen/Dan!

I did, however, see the last few minutes on mute. I really hate to say it, but SC was just as bad without sound. Poor guy was handling Nancy's passport like it was made of kryptonite. Seriously, Dan. You will not be struck down if you take a peek at her passport. (Although, I wish he would be).

I have been reading the synopsis of each day rather than watching (as I can't bear to watch some of the destruction taking place) and I notice that the Dannifer 'love' saga actually sounds good on paper. It reads soapy and hits all the right notes and yet what is being conveyed on screen - based on the comments I so enjoy reading here - seems to be the very opposite. The writers need to realise what may work well on paper, certainly doesn't translate - especially when it involves a) making a once-loved and feisty character into a whiny teenager and b) shoving a male character down our throats, especially one who the viewers have now seen be in 'love' what 5(?) times in fewer years. He's not a character that has been explored to any depth beyond his apparent attraction for and to women and so it's hard to be emotionally invested in whatever he does.

Steve the bad boy with heart of gold
Bo the rebel
John the hero
Jack the witty and suave

Hell I can even attempt simple descriptions of most of the other men currently on canvas (Rafe the wannabe-hero; EJ the wanna-be bad boy; Chad the maybe-Dimera-someday-soon...) but really what can be said of Daniel? He's an attractive doctor?? Compelling.

Seeing this still actually impresses me. I remember that scene when it aired. Even back then, thought it was CGI. But that was a costume? Pretty cool!

Yes, a costume. If I remember reading correctly, it took awhile to get the costume on, so instead of Staci doing it, they used one of the Production Assistants, Suzanne Ray, and she dressed up in the costume and played the demon that Isabella morphed into.

Maggie needs to be sent to a psych ward. She's acting like a nutcase. And, gosh, I sure don't remember her boo hooing like this when Jack died. Daniel becoming her eggbaby has completely destroyed the character. And she's supposed to be the matriarch of the show? Alice would be ashamed at what an obnoxious bitch Maggie's become.

ETA: I wish the writers would honestly address Maggie's obsession with Daniel instead of acting as if her bizarre behavior is normal.

What I do not get is that what is it about this character Daniel as the Powers thinks he would be particularly desirable? Hallo in a superficial world, I can say this, there's nothing there that is topnotch. And a big turn off is that this guy never need to work to get a woman. The women lie down like he would be the bomb? Lol I mean look at EJ he had to work in seven fucking years to get the woman of his dreams. So I says this scrap Dannifer take in a drop dead beautiful woman and let Daniel crawl in shit let him be denied and truly work for a woman so maybe just maybe the character can be saved. :)
