This talk between EJ and Justin is just so random. I wouldn't have been thrilled about this story anyway, but it's like they did the worst job they possibly could to an already bad idea.

I feel like the Eric/Kristen stuff is playing out almost kind of horror story-like.

I watched some of the Will scenes again. Ali has no clue how to hold a newborn. She should have asked her nanny for tips.

She actually did better today than she did the last time she held her. Blows my mind.

How can she not know how to hold a newborn? I mean she came back to the set in record time after her last baby, but she still had two newborns of her own.

Honestly, I mean my nanny comment is snarky, but I don't think it's far from the truth. Working on TBL and Days 2 weeks after the baby is born means that during those times, someone else, not Ali, is holding the baby. If she has to get some sleep the night before she's working, then someone's holding the baby then too. I'm not saying she's never held a newborn, but I'm sure she's held them a lot less than other mothers.

WTF is with this EJ/Justin plot? Are we seriously supposed to believe that DiMera Enterprises has a Board that actually could vote Stefano out? In other words, not only does Stefano hold less than majority control of DiMera Enterprises, but the other members are willing to turn on Stefano in favor of EJ?

:hahano:

So where were these voters when Jawn took over? During the DiMera/Kiriakis war? :offs:

If this storyline doesn't end with any voter who votes against Stefano being :bonk: and replaced, then he is no longer Stefano and we need a new name for the man.

That is just sad. Why is AS so paranoid about being off the show for a couple months? Nobody can miss her if she never leaves!

I know... I think the whole thing went downhill in 2008 when "New John" tried to take over DiMera enterprises. Till then, Stefano's "business" was pretty much a mafia type thing. He made money and no one asked how. But when Dena came in, she turned it into an actual business, and it hasn't been the same since.

LOL - yeah, I remember some discussion then that she didn't want them to realize how easy it was for another actress to say "Please step on the scale."

I love Justin/Sonny scenes. They're believable as father/son. :wub2:

Sonny and Ari are adorable. :wub2:

I love EJ/Kristin scenes.

Eric in the shower :wub:

Looking forward to Theresa/JJ. Casey Moss is doing a great job for a first time actor.

That sleazy Daniel is everywhere. First he's with Brady at the mansion, then he's magically at the hospital with Eric, then he's suddenly exiting his apartment and running into Jennifer. GO AWAY!!!! He looks like a porn actor with that unbuttoned shirt, necklace and the perpetual 5 O'clock :yuk: I almost fell asleep fast-forwarding through this show.

I'm showing my age here but she reminds me of Ted Baxter on Mary Tyler Moore. He never took a vacation because he knew they would realize anyone that filled in would make him look like the bombastic ignoramus he was.

Awww.... I got my Justin/Baby Arianna scene. I want more lol

LOVED my Justin/Sonny. I just cherish this relationship so much. They are in my opinion the best father/son duo. Wally and Freddie are just so natural together. I wish Justin had told Sonny that he could have all he has now and also some true fun on some adventures too. I hope Sonny starts to have regrets about all this soon.

Again, some weird ass acting choices by Chandler again today. That "HEY" scene with Sami and EJ was just odd. Willass and his insecurities are getting very old.
I agree with all of this. Arianna has a terrific father and grandfather in Sonny and Justin. They are head and shoulders the best son/father duo on this show; and both of them simply adore AG, especially Sonny who is more of a parent and a better parent to her than either Will or Gabi.

Was I the only one wondering what CM was doing looking behind the door or off to his right when he arrived home with Sami and EJ? I think I am going to stop wondering why he does some of the strange things he does and just chalk it up to the general boredom he has displayed on screen ever since both MarDar and TomSell broke up Will and his boyfriend EJ last summer.

GV looked pretty damn hot in that shower. I'm glad the show is finding more ways to get him out of his clothes. I wonder if he will appear shirtless for the upcoming holiday celebration.

Wow, if this were any other character, I'd think for sure they are setting Sonny up for a big story of heartbreak and loss with Chandler's exit. Sonny seems to be more in love with Ari than both Gabi and Will. I just have a feeling when that is combined with Adrienne's constant warnings that Will is going to hurt Sonny, that a big fall is going to happen for him eventually. Unless Freddie is so enamored with this baby and overplaying the relationship because of that, I honestly can see Sonny having an emotional and physical breakdown if Will were to turn on him and he loses Ari. Now that it seems like Corday knew all along about Chandler leaving I just have to believe what we are seeing now is setting up a fall. Things are way too perfect for Wilson and Sonny seems to be on a cloud of euphoria regarding his life now. He gave up all of his hopes and dreams for Will and the baby. The only two ways that I could see Sonny having staying power without Will is for Will to screw Sonny over like Adrienne has warned or for Will to be presumed dead...

Freddie and Brent have chemistry. Such a very natural vibe. I'd love to see Brent come back into the picture. I actually think the actor is pretty good. Seems Sonny is now somebody that nobody recognizes. There is nobody that Freddie doesn't have chemistry with. Days would be foolish not to keep Freddie and give Sonny his own story outside of Will.

Loved the Sonny and Justin scenes. Again, they are so natural together as father/son. I could watch their scenes together all day.

I am loving the Jen/JJ story. I find it realistic and exciting to watch. Casey Moss is such a great younger actor that Days brought on. I hope he clicks with Jen L. I'm excited to see how she mixes into his story and the rest of the show. Melissa R has really stepped up her game and putting in some great acting with JJ acting out.

The actual mafia has hundreds of legit businesses that make money besides the ones they launder money through, from clothing, coffee, casinos, bakeries, right up to healthcare and renewable energy. There is a reason that the mafia hasn't been taken down, and a reason for people to be afraid of them.

It's so beyond ridiculas, not to mention :sleep: boring :sleep: :bedtime: , for Stefano to be taken down by two people, Justin and Sami's lapdog, sitting on their asses playing telephone tag. They aren't fearing for their lives, there's no tension or drama.

I sound like a broken record saying this, but I wish that Stefano were being taken down by someone or people who really had high stakes OR had REAL beef against him. There are just too many things that the writers are not exploring. Hell, Marlena is one (hello, so many things have been done against her by Stefano), among others. Hell, even Celeste has a bone to pick against Stefano (e.g. they can explore the angle where Stefano was believed to be one of the causes for Lexie getting the brain tumor and dying). The current one is just so lame that Justin's character and the actor's talent are being wasted. SMH.

Amen amen amen amen amen...you get the idea :cheer:

Stefano jumped the shark years ago. Back when they turned him from the puppet master who f###ed with people's lives into a wussy art collector and then the whole Santo/Colleen farce.

I don't get all the consternation about who Stefano is "taken down" by at this moment. It's not like others haven't temporarily "defeated" Stefano before. It's obvious to me that it's only going to be temporary and Stefano will have the upper hand again in a matter of months, just like he always does.
