If you feel nostalgic as we all get ready for the emotional 50th anniversary of the iconic soap opera that is Days of our Lives in November, look no further than TV Insider’s postings of Salem stalwart Melissa Reeves favorite moments through the years as Jennifer Rose Horton.

Hand-picked by Reeves, she named three standouts, including a scene of the first time Jack and Jennifer make love back in 1990.  Melissa related about what made this scene so special: “One day, Matt Ashford showed up at Days and shook up my world just like Jack did Jennifer’s.  He was so different and funny as Jack, so human. He wasn’t afraid to play that flawed, broken man. He didn’t need to be the macho man, the leading man, he was just this fun, nerdy guy but also a really handsome guy and the fans loved him and related to him. They could tell that Jack truly loved Jennifer, in his weird way. When I first started working with Matt I was, like, ‘Wow. What is this? Well, this is sure going to be different!’ It was like being on a roller coaster only I wasn’t hanging on for dear life. I was throwing my arms in the air!”

Melissa also chose the hanging of the Horton family Christmas tree ornaments back in 1986 and touched on the very personal relationship she had with the late Frances Reid (Alice) and MacDonald Carey (Tom), and another beautiful moment with another all-time favorite love interest, Frankie Brady played by Billy Warlock back in 1987.

Now, it’s your turn: What was your favorite Jennifer Rose Horton moment throughout the years:  One that comes to mind for us, is the wedding of Jack and Jennifer, and the vows Jennifer reciting to Jack, you know, the wedding at Universal Studios!  Watch that after the jump and then share your thoughts below!

Can I also say….and this is not 100% fact but Jack and Jennifer are the last couple I remember having a baby while they were married, and there was no Who’s The Daddy, no no baby switch, no miscarriage, no illness, just a very entertaining couple having a baby to complete their lives. That would be so refreshing in today’s landscape! Days is the one show that has managed to keep couples together. Two reporters nosing around stories is a built in way to keep a couple interesting! Same with Bo and Hope, two cops solving crimes with the relationship… Read more »

ITA, Jack & Jennifer were always fun to watch, together or apart. Same with Patch & Kayla, Bo & Hope. No matter what life throws at them, they will always end up back together. Because we could FEEL the love and affection they had for one another, these relationships were very well developed, and have stood the test of time. They make us believe in true love and fidelity. These are the types of couples I root for. The ones that easily go from bed-to-bed, I couldn’t care less about! Some of these guys forget about their “true love” the… Read more »

My very favorite moment, and there are LOTS of them, is the “I believe in you” moment where Jack is ranting about how bad he is for her and she cries “you are not the same person and everyone knows that now! .. I believe what I feel, with my whole heart.” and she kisses him. And he just cannot resist her after that, and he kisses her back, and boy, what a KISS! Still makes my toes curl. 😀

I like her as actress. But so many characters on all four remaining shows are without a storyline of any merit. Jennifer Horton is exhibit A for DROOL. How many times can she play the same scene with Eve? Her kids? Worse still is when they tried to heat up Dannifer, when that had zero chemistry. I say bring back Peter DiMera, make her the head of an international cartel of cat burglars…. anything. Instead she meddles endlessly and issues sanctimonious benedictions and homilies on Virtuous Living. For goodness sake Ker her do something.

This clip is an example of why the era of such episodes of Days of our Lives were called “The Glory Days”! There was REAL love between Jack and Jennifer. Not the phony crap the writers are trying to sell using Chad and Abigail. Ben and Abigail come closer to Jack and Jennifer than Chad and Abigail. However, why the writers had Abigail to mess around with both EJ and Chad, I will never know. What I do know is that the writers made a huge mistake with the current Chad-Abigail story! Since we do not really know who the… Read more »

WOW do you mean at one time they actually did a real OUTDOOR scene instead of that crappy fake leaf park set they currently use for everything? That is pretty impressive – the show now consists of about three sets – Brady’s Pub, the hospital and the Town Square where everyone literally “bumps into” each other….constantly. Well I guess in a town that has only 3 sets one can’t help but bump into a fellow cast member.
I wish the show would venture to the real outdoors every once in a while.

Was a Jack and Jennifer shipper in the beginning but I think in the end they became a joke couple. Jack was a clown who never grew up and he dragged Jennifer down. I stopped shipping them during that farce of a wedding. It was not funny or a romantic to me it was slapstick at its worst with Matt Ashford’s constant eye slides to the right of Missy’s face. Give me Frankie and Jennifer ANY TIME!!

I first watched Days when Melissa joined after being let go from Santa Barbara. I adored her & the character of Jennifer Horton.

Closing in on 30 years later, the character has become so unsufferable that my favorite scene is now the fantasy sequence where Eve stabbed a knife into her gut. I’m rooting for these new writers. They’ve got a lot of damage control to take care of and I wish them well.

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
