I like Eileen's "this is so twisted" line. Right.
She should have added "repulsive" "vomit-inducing" and "completely gross and disgusting" to the dialogue.

I'm sorry, but I'm not finding the climax of a plot that makes not a DAMN bit of sense on either side engaging.
It just doesn't make sense to me at all. They both have the same idea but John's is to get Brady away from Kristen which is all part of Kristen's plot anyway. It's like circular plot development or something.
Exactly. They have the parallel mindset that they are both willing to sacrifice their own relationship in order to break up the other person's. Problem for John is that Kristen is actually okay (albeit reluctantly now) with giving up Brady and always has been, while John isn't okay with sacrificing his marriage. That makes him exceptionally stupid for not figuring out a different strategy to break up Bristen.

And on top of that, it's been a complete failure on the show's part not to show John's emotional turmoil around what he's doing to Marlena. Part of that is on Drake by not playing the right subtext more. But the show is also doing NOTHING to tell John's story. Kristen has had a million daydreams and internal conversations to show she doesn't like hurting Brady, and John has had basically zero. It's so obvious that the writers care nothing about Jarlena's relationship in telling what is clearly a Bristen story.

This Ericole scene is boring.......
It sure is. And they're talking about zoning and it's actually about zoning. Where is my sweet, sweet subtext, show?

Maybe it's a plotpoint for the future? The new school building is put on hold so the DiMera's (Kristen) come to the rescue? That would explain a lot of those eric/kristen scenes that ED and GV have been shooting.

This just has to be Cherrill. This script just isn't... good. At all. It's servicing the plot & that's just about it. There's NO life to it at all. It just kinda lays there.

This episode is getting up there with GH's "The Chew" fiasco last week. I guess Days wants to make it onto The Soup too.

They came from the faux secret room filled with all the faux wedding stuff.

Why does Drake Hogestyn deliver his lines like he has his oxygen tank stashed right off set & out of camera range?

I do like Eileen's performance today. She's playing it like John is really getting to her.

Drake seems to be trying his best to sell these scenes. I only wish they made sense.
