I appreciate that they brought back Cecily and continue to use her as a recurring character for Stefano.

I wonder who the witness is? Wouldnt it be awesome if it were Carrie or someone from Sami's past when Sami escaped with Austin when she was on trial for Franco's murder? A fan can dream ha.

Poor Abe. He's gonna be the witness that slams the cell door shut on Sami because of her last escapade with EJ.

Do Asian actresses get to play anything but Geishas or Ball Busting Tiger Mom types?
the DA is Asian. and there have been Chinese/Japanese/Korean/etc actresses playing all sorts of roles on other shows - ER & Grey's Anatomy, for instance, both had Asian doctors.
I think Ciara's teacher was Asian too. Could be mis-remembering though.

I just hope they don't go there and make her the prosecutor's sister. It would be nice to not have every non-white character be somehow related.

You're welcome to disagree with me, but when I was referring to the ball-busting Tiger Mom type, I was referring to the DA. It's also a very common stereotype of Asian women and many of the roles you mention fit right into it. Understand what I was saying and then disagree.

On a shallow note, Days' wardrobe failed. Chad is under 50 and should have been inexplicably shirtless for his exam.

That look Kayla just gave to Kate was AMAZING.

IMO, this is a very balanced episode today between the high drama of Sami's hearing & other, lighter stories with a NICE storyflow

I was thinking the same thing. And they also would have found a lame excuse for Cameron to be shirtless too.

I understand what you're saying I was just adding to what the other person was commenting.

I don't see how any of these characters would be different if white/black/other. I mean not that I think Days is overly sensitive to counteracting stereotypes, I don't think they are, but I'm not seeing the issue here either.

Hahaha. Kate is offering to underwrite Rafe 's physical therapist. Wonder if this will wind up biting her in the ass.

This all pretty elaborate for a bail hearing and since was Mr Walsh a judge?

I would not be opposed to a shirtless Cameron examining a shirtless Chad.

I love that they milked this supposedly simply bail hearing for all the drama it was worth. Well done!

When the air conditioning malfunctions and they need to use body heat to keep each other warm...
