I kind of wish Marlena had let John help with Sami. They have their issues, but John has always been at his best when he's about family. I understand not wanting anything to do with him. Its just annoying.
Yeah, but John and Sami don't actually like each other, would just make things worse
That's not true. They have a tumultuous relationship but John has ALWAYS loved Sami. Staying away may be for the better, but scenes with John there could be more interesting. But I haven't been bothered by Drake's acting since Kristen was exposed.

I like Ari's hair. I wonder if there was a break between when yesterday's show was filmed and today's?
I don't think so, because DHer tweeted a pic of her and ED in these outfits on 2/16. DHer taped on both 2/14 and 2/15. They were on hiatus the next week.

How long has it been since we've gotten a Salmons script? Maybe she was off for a bit.
Jason47 lists 5/24 as her last in May.

There have only been 8 episodes in June so far and I don't recall seeing her name

The last one we had from her was the one where John and Kristen are seducing each other in the hotel room.

I've always felt that he only made an effort for Marlena's sake. What makes you think he loves her? Have I forgotten a pivotal scene? (I probably have lol)

During Bricole's kiss, I found myself wondering what the name of AZ's nail polish was. Perhaps I'll be able to find out and that scene won't be a total waste. I just cannot stand them in romantic scenes.

I laughed when Marlena picked up the children only to immediately leave them at the pub with the woman with Alzheimers. This is where Sami gets it from.

IDK why, but I seriously keep forgetting that Roman is Eric's father.

John needs to take Roman's advice and stay away from Marlena and everyone else for that matter.

I'm going to try to see Jennifer's defense of JJ as more of a desire to see the best in people, rather than a sign complete stupidity and willful ignorance. Maybe that'll make it possible to enjoy her scenes again.

I cannot wait to see what Kristen does.

Wasn't her last script those terrible hotel room scenes with John and Kristen? I don't blame TPTB for giving her a "rest" after that travesty.

Salmons had another episode after the hotel room fiasco, but that was boring as hell too.

I've never gotten that impression. She has constantly pushed her away and he tries to give her space but he has pretty much always shown that he loves her, IMO. Some of his and Sami's best scenes have been when Marlena wasn't around or things weren't good between J&M.

I agree 100%, John has definitely always loved Sami as a daughter and when Sami is honest she admits John was a great father to her. Some of my favorite Sami scenes all-time have been when she has those tender moments with John. Dhim has always had excellent family chemistry with all his onscreen children imo.

Quoted because you beat me to it. John raised Sami and Eric. Its sacrilege that there's not more of a relationship there more often and shown.

Complete stupidity and willful ignorance is exactly what it is. Jennifer is only concerned with Daniel and unfortunately Abby is no different. :shame:

I have no issue with Abby. She seems to have a good handle on what's going on, and she's like 20, so it's not her responsibility to do or say more than she has.

Grattitude/parental duty to someone and actually likeing/loving them are 2 different things. Maybe it's because different writing regimes write them differently, but I have never felt any consistency of John loving Sami. And I am certain Sami will always resent John for the affair, no matter what she says.

Nicole's dress isn't fitted to her properly. It's distracting
I noticed this too. Do the wardrobe people even try anymore?

I was amused by JJ's stoner friend.

I was bored by any and all Daniel/Jennifer conversation. Aren't there any other couples this show can focus on for a change of pace?

Nicole's dress fit her weird.

Brady has Kristen on his mind and Nicole's tongue in his mouth. I'll roll with that. ^_^

Kristen has an evil plan! Kristen has an evil plan!!!

Cameron makes my eyelids very, very heavy....Zzzzzz

Why the hell is Stefano leaving?!! Bring him back NOW!

I like the way Anne planted that reporter. He had the best questions. Honestly, those SHOULD come up.

Audience/writer surrogate - someone needs to question the Horton/Brady/Kiriakis/Di Mera hegemony over Salem

Actually those are several different things. Liking and loving are completely separate. I was talking about loving.

Yeah. There was no cover up. But Kayla DID think of Jennifer for that job because she's a friend/family member. Jennifer is capable, and does have a background in the press, so it
wasn't a bad idea, but Jennifer's spent more time chasing Daniel than DOING the job.

And the familial relationship Jennifer has with the shooter? And the Chief of Staff is the shooter's aunt. The detective is another aunt. The commissioner is her father.

All kinds of messy. Those questions should be at the forefront.
