When it comes to Days of Our Lives, each and every viewer has their own point of view, and Soap Hub is not an exception to this rule.
After watching the good, the bad, and everything in between for the past five days on Days of Our Lives, we are now going to provide you with a review that is both helpful and cheeky of the week that just passed on the show.
Days of Our Lives: A Critic’s Week In Review
Fans who really know their stuff are aware that death has no meaning in a soap opera. Characters who have been eliminated today will typically be reinstated by tomorrow,
if not within the following calendar year, or at most within the next two years.
Sometimes the person who was thought to be dead comes back with a different appearance than the one they had before they disappeared.
The only deaths that seem to have a lasting impact are those that take place as a direct result of the passing of the actor who portrayed the character…
However, despite this, there is still no assurance. Do you remember when the Salem Stalker was killing people and the severed head of Tom Horton would show up as a sign that bad things were about to happen?
Even so, it is difficult to argue that Days of our Lives is not exploiting the assassination of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (played by Marci Miller) to the fullest extent possible.
Bryan Dattilo, who is almost never given enough screen time, is currently in the spotlight, dealing not only with the aftermath of his recent relapse but also with the very real prospect that he could be the person who stabbed his niece.
Even though I’ve been a blubbering baby ever since Matthew Ashford and Cady McClain returned to their roles as Jack Deveraux and Jennifer Rose Horton Deveraux on Days of Our Lives, I couldn’t be more thrilled that they’re back on my screens as Jack and Jennifer.
All of this, in conjunction with Billy Flynn’s tour de force performance as Chad DiMera, and Camila Banus’s Gabi Hernandez DiMera, baring her claws and appointing herself the leader of the effort to unmask her enemy’s killer, has made for some truly great days (of our lives).
If only the setup had been able to live up to the caliber of the fallout…
Further DAYS Musings
* Putting aside his obvious good looks and animal magnetism, I just don’t get EJ DiMera’s (Dan Feuerriegel) appeal, and I certainly do not understand why Belle Brady is drawn to him in the first place (Martha Madison).
In addition to this, EJ is the person who sexually assaulted her sister. However, in spite of this very real fact, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) and EJ have demonstrated time and time again that their hearts burn only for one another and no one else.
Why would Belle put herself in a position where she will almost certainly suffer heartbreak, not to mention the verbal smack across the face that Sami will almost certainly give her?
* Did I miss the scene in which someone in Abigail’s family mentioned that JJ Deveraux had been informed of the passing of his sister?
* Exchange of the Week – Days of our Lives Edition:
Chanel: Okay, let me make sure I understand this. You’ve decided to get up and leave town just as soon as you’ve finally stopped hating me, haven’t you?
I never had any hatred for you, Tripp! .. Okay, okay. There was a time when I felt extremely antagonistic toward you, but I sincerely hope that we can get along now.
Chanel: Yes, I believe so. I mean, it’s possible that you are the only friend I’ve made in Salem with whom I haven’t had sexual relations…. Is it too new?
