WEEKLY NEWSPAPER SYNOPSES

WEEK OF NOVEMBER 19 - NOVEMBER 23, 1984
Calliope stumbled onto Tony's and Jasmine's island hut. Tony was furious to learn that Andre is alive. Bo rescued Hope, who was about to be kidnapped by Stefano's band of Amazon henchwomen. Later, during a fight, Andre and Tony landed in a pool of quicksand, but Jasmine pulls Tony from the jaws of death. Stefano and Roman struggled near a high cliff and Roman fell over the edge.
<snip>

I remember Roman falling off the cliff, of course.

But I don't remember "Stefano's band of Amazon henchwomen".
What was that? Do I even want to know?

Quoting text from the article:
"Andre's one weakness, however, is his uncontrollable passion for Anna. He forces himself on her, but she grabs a rock and knocks him momentarily unconscious."

29 years later ... Gabi and Nick ... such a pale imitation ...

Chris Elia was Amazon Tarina and Colette Bertrand was Amazon Yolanda.

UPDATE: These two are also identified in the cast charts, I missed them when skimming over the lists earlier today: Karen Criswell is Amazon Simone and Joyce Little is Amazon Ayla.

:tears: :rip: Need I say more. For me, one of the saddest scenes in Days history. I still cry when I watch that scene of Roman/Bo on that beach. Roman's death scene music is overwhelming.

That was the beauty of scenes in the 70s, 80s and 90s Days had the right music to really empower a scene and you felt every emotion whether is was joy or grief, today it's sad really you get none of that I know the glory days of soaps died in the 1990s.

This is choking me up for two reasons: memories of Roman's death and sweet memories of how damn good the show used to be. :'(

That theme has played in the bg of so many beautiful scenes.. DAYS of today pales in comparison. :(

RoJohn reading Marlena's letter & imagining the goodbyes / letting go..
The scene itself starst around 8:00, the theme starts playing at 9:58 (sniffffff :'( )


RoJohn & Marlena's pier reunion, a 90's version of the same theme..


Marlena and the real Roman, not some mumbling Fauxman, whose forehead doesn't even move.. :glare:



And the music on DAYS nowadays? We have to listen to some freaking porn moans....... :censored:

All the great writers died, left the show or retired that's what happened to Days and any remaining soaps.

Just for good measure when it comes to enduring themes:
