Trish hitting Jack in the head with the iron is definitely one of the most memorable moments on Days for me. Wasn't expecting it at all.

I am so used to reading about someone pretending to be insane to get off when charged with a crime, I laughed when I saw the Mickey pretending to be sane so he could represent himself.Can someone please explain what this portion of the storyline was all about? Also interested in what Greg did to help Susan realize she was frigid?
It does seem kind of funny when you read it like this that Mickey was pretending to be sane. If he was insane, how would he be able to control that, lol? But, he was just trying to act normal so he wouldn't be committed to the sanitarium.

Can't remember what Greg did for Susan re her being frigid other than talk it over with her. Susan being frigid and men being impotent were Bill Bell's influence. He wrote a lot of psychological based stories, in the 70s especially.

SOD SYNOPSIS
COVER DATE: APRIL 1977


  • Mike confesses to killing Jack to protect Trish, but the police find reason not to believe his claim of justifiable homicide. Jeri's staunch defense of Jack doesn't help Mike's claims. Jack's attack and death causes Trish to have a complete emotional & mental collapse as the trauma causes her personality to begin to split into "Cynthia" & "Lisa" who don't remember what really happened to Jack. Despite the police charging Mike with first degree murder, he vows that know one can ever know the truth. In his time of trouble, Mike turns to his "real" father, Mickey, as the police look for him to turn himself in. David & Linda separately convince him to go to the police.
  • Linda and Bob begin to see one another, much to Mike's jealousy. When money is needed for Mike's bail, Linda goes to Bob and he agrees to help with the money.
  • Mickey has almost completely recovered. There is no longer any trace of "Marty Hanson." Maggie worries about what this change might mean for her and their marriage. Bill is jealous of Mike & Mickey's continued closeness as son & father.
  • Unable to cope with the death of her baby, Phyllis begins to drink. Meanwhile, Mary struggles to fight her growing attraction to Neil.

And now, for some reason, I can't find my September 1977 SOD (with Dan & Kim's wedding from ATWT on the cover). I *know* I have it & I have it marked that I have in on my SOD inventory sheet (yes, I'm OCD), but for the life of me I can't find it (or my December 1977 for that matter, which I *also* know I have). I'm not amused.

I've been thinking that for a while now, and I loved Neil. And he was totally smarmy and rather unethical but I really liked him. I think Joe Gallison had a lot to do with that. But then, I liked Veronica over Betty (The Archies), so sue me. lol Oh, Grams hated him. I was a weird little kid.

It's interesting that you made the Neil/Daniel observation. As I've been reading through this the one thing that really caught my eye was Bill's hand troubles and how it interfered with his ability to work. Daniel Jonas anyone. Sorry Dan, with all of Bill Horton's flaws, you still don't measure up.

This is such a great service, Matt (and Jason). I can't even stay caught up. What a great dilemma. lol This is filling in a lot of gaps for me, and giving me recall of such great memories of sharing some of these stories with one of my Grams (the one who watched Days and CBS soaps). It's so enjoyable to read these well crafted stories.

Thanks so for much for sharing. This is awesome. :applause:

Hey now, when I was purchasing all the old 1970s and 1980s issues through the years, I didn't have the knowledge that another person had all the issues waiting for me (in case I needed any)...so turn that frown upside down!!

We want people here to be :lol: not :frustration:

I try the best I can to make everyone :lol: and not :frustration:

You can't keep up?? Try typing out 12,300 episodes of cast/set lists...it seems like a never-ending task, but I guess I will have finally conquered that never-ending task sometime next year, yay!!

And, yes, thanks to Matt for all the time and effort in compiling the SOD scans. It's cool that he happens to be doing it during this time period, just as my big research on the show is coming to a close...2014 looks like it will be a great year for "Days" history fans. :cheers:
