He has sex with men. I'm not certain, but I think there are restrictions placed on him giving blood whether he's a match or not.
I had to idea that was even an issue in this day and age. Never really thought about it since screening is so much better now. Here's an article in case anyone else wants to know more about it. I feel like I'm the only one who didn't know about this. ^o)

You're not alone, apparently the writers didn't know either. Or don't have the guts to go there. I don't want to think about which.

Ugh

I'm starting to think a nap would have been better then this "All hail Daniel the super surgeon" themed episode.
Seriously. And for a day when one character died and they suddenly was alive again, this episode is booooooring.

Roman isn't wrong about the DiMeras, but he does realize he's talking to Sami, right? I mean, Stefano could basically be having the same conversation with EJ about being with someone like her.

I wish they would have brought it up. It's a real issue, and I'm not watching live right now, but it sounds like they have chosen to highlight that Sonny is pretty upset about this whole thing. Seems like it would've fit in pretty organically with him being even more distraught/feeling helpless.

Ah well. Missing subtle/logical story beats = modus operandi for Days.

Well, Stefano knows his Bible!

Why can't anyone get any privacy?

Sami got home quick. That was a weird ending shot of her.

if Chad dies I really hope Abby's pregnant with his kid. Stefano will make her move in next.
Oh PLEASE no! Abigail Dimera! That would be miserable! :stars:

I don't want to see Stefano being a good father or grandfather. That's not his purpose in Salem, for me anyway.

Then that would have taken the attention away from Sami, Daniel, etc. Can't have that happening.

I'm glad Daniel pointed out that he JUST did his job.

I agree that giving blood being barred for Sonny would have been a nice beat. I've avoided blood drives at school so long as the broad bans against homosexuals giving blood existed. It hasn't changed in almost ten years, when I first heard about it happening in high school.

Who was Cam referring to when he said "not something, but someone" when he was responding to wanting Chad to be alive? Chad? God?

Is that Corday playing the nurse in the OR? She's terrible.
Kim Meredith, who is a real-life nurse & medical consultant, is the OR Nurse.

When it comes to real life, how would they know if a man who wanted to donate blood was gay or not. And whats to stop anyone from lying?

I'm literally crying at the scene where Stefo is told by EJ that Chad is alive.

I love that old man, and his "love" for his family.
