The problem is that Days didn’t reboot. They just added J&M, Caustin and Jack to the mix that was already in play. I don’t see how replacing an EP in charge of production is going to help, and in fact, it may hinder by throwing cast & crew off balance. Is Corday ever going to understand Rafe and Daniel are Higley creations that many viewers have NO interest in? And why are there no characters in Salem between 23 -34 besides EJ? A character that has so many tire marks on his back, NCIS’s Abby couldn’t identify them all. 🙁

Days did reboot. I enjoy both Rafe and Daniel, Higley creations or no. The new writers are doing a great job. They write in a way that does not offend the intelligence of the viewer. Some viewers don’t like stories written just for persons age 23-24 (let them go watch the CW) and couldn’t care less about that. Days is doing just fine. The ratings are up. They are getting back to what soaps were about before 23-24 year olds were even born. But people that young may not understand it because they are still wet behind the ears and… Read more »

I think of NBC begin showing the orgingal HourGlass Closing Credits instead of the squueze ones with NBC Primetime Ads, then Days ratings would go up.

So many changes and not one of them has got me excited about Days. The reboot didn’t make a difference and I don’t see this helping the cause. The show is a ginormous snoozefest. I can’t make myself watch an entire epi. The writing continues to fail.

SPOT ON! I agree. The show is so boring that I would rather watch paint dry literally. EJ and Nicole are a snoozefest and Rafe is utterly boring i want to rip my hair out. I dont understand why EJ and Sami are no longer in the same orbit. I love EJAMI and will never watch if they are not on TOGETHER. The new head writers should be fired. Ken Corday just loves Passions doesnt he.

Agreed. Ejami is why I came back to Days. Now I watch Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries like I used to watch Days. I couldn’t wait to watch the next show. I ended up searching the net for spoilers and discoved the world of soaps on my computer. Chuck and Damon have now replaced my EJ. The dark gorgeous character with the soft spot for the girl he loves more than life itself. That recipe never fails! The reboot is not working for me. Characters I don’t care about in stories that put me to sleep. That is a… Read more »

Days loves firing people I’m getting bored. We want The Dimeras NOT Rafe/Austin/Madison fire them! Dammit! Bring back CC and Nadia.

Actually YES we do want Austin. Carrie and Austin are one of Days’ premiere supercouples and basically the only reason I’m back to watching this silly show.

And bring back Jay. EJ needs someone to play against. Rafe does not cut it.

Passions is my favourite soap, so this news excites me. Unfortunately, the new head writers haven’t made Days as interesting as they made Passions, but maybe help from Passions’ former EP will help in that department.

Passions was a horrible soap. Really as It was. from 2000-2009(GL), and 1999-2008(Passions), they creubated Daytime. IF Passions and GL got rid of that “crap” and became a regular soap oprea like Santa Barbara, they they would have survived.

Passions was fantastic because it was a satire of soap operas, and people who liked “normal” soaps just didn’t get it. Passions was brilliant and Reilly was a genius. Thank GOD that we got 9 years with Passions, because the show was amazing and revolutionary. I love Passions and will always love Passions—now let’s hope the new EP and head writers rub some of that Passions influence off on Days!

Dan and Rafe need to hit the road and take Carrie and Austin with them,and Jackass can go back where he came from.
rewritten history over and over isnot good IMO
they broke up Sami and Lucas so she could have EJ and then broke them up so she could have Rafe and now she and Austin is living together with Rafe and 4 kids,@@
Sami and Lucas Horton and 4 kids need to be together and stop all the bull sh,, going on,,, I love that John and Marlena are back,and now can we have Tony and Lucas back???????????????????????????????????

Days is not Passions, they got rid of Another World after 35 years and put Passions on and just how long did that soap last @@
If they want to put actors on Days get the actors they let go,we want them back first.

Bring Back Brady #1. Nicole’s Husband in real life need a job. Chloe can return. Oh yeah Farah Fath as Mimi’s back on Days in April and she been boring probabaly.. Jason Brooks is back in April as Peter two for three month guest appearance contract and he’ll be evil and crazy and boring. I like Days from 1992-2004. Remember when DAYS had exterior outdoor scences and closing credits>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9AI0BS_UUg &http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwlIRiLGsXw&feature=related

I like the changes they have made and the direction the show is moving ( women are working not just chasing men, storylines with more substance – class action suit, mayoral race, etc) but they have to stay focused on the major storylines, move them along more quickly, and spice it up a bit, so people won’t lose interest. I understand it is taking some time to make the transition, get the characters and storylines in place, but I fear if they take too long people will lose interest. Just trying to give some constructive criticism because I think the… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
