In our opinion, Days of our Lives is doing an excellent job with Will Horton’s coming out story.  And although, there have been the stops and the starts, and the putting on the brakes, and then going forward with it full steam ahead, the writers and the performers have been doing a subtle, compelling and beautiful job relating the struggles of young man trying to face and accept who he is, and the ramifications he fears it will have for him with his family and society.

Last week, we first heard Will say, “I think I might be gay”.  Later, he back-peddled on it, telling his beloved Grandma Marlena, he isn’t gay.  But wise Marlena knows better.  She sees the pain and anguish deep inside Will that is tearing him apart.  And while, April 4th is Will’s “official” coming out episode, (Don’t miss it! We could be naming Chandler and Deidre again next week) there were several scenes this week between Chandler Massey (Will) and Deidre Hall (Marlena) that resonated to us, and we hope many in the DAYS and NBC viewing audience.   We think this simple and yet complex discussion of Marlena telling Will she accepts him for who he is, and Will still questioning and still in denial, were very deserving of being names one of this week’s Power Performances of the Week.

And in addition, let us not forget, General Hospital’s Jason Thompson (Patrick) in the scene where Patrick takes Robin’s ashes to the land where the house they were going to build for their future was located,  and struggles with dispersing them over the ground.  This makes four weeks in a row that we have named Jason Thompson, one of the Power Performances of the Week!  It would be hard for anyone not to grab for the hankies, watching Patrick grieve for his wife! But the kicker! Robin is alive and so if there is a soap God, and true love wins out, Robin and Patrick will be reunited some day!

Now below watch some scenes from this week’s Power Performances of the Week, and let us know your thoughts, and if you agree with our picks!

Once again, Jason was stellar in the scene where Patrick took “Robin” ‘s ashes to scatter them over the land where their dream home was supposed to be. And then for Scrubs fans to find out that Robin is ALIVE!!! Okay, I squeeeee’d a lot when I saw this! The scene where Patrick reached out his hand as Robin reached hers out as she lay in the hospital bed…there just are no words for that. Patrick feeling in his heart that Robin isn’t really gone, and that he can’t bring himself to believe it….if there is truly a soap god,… Read more »

I watched both of these incredible performances and I feel that they were Emmy quality. Jason Thompson has surpassed anything I would have expected from him! Who knew he could be this great!

GREAT choices Michael. All 3 deserve kudos. DH and CM have blown me away. The writing has made me want to cry, I’ve been so moved. When Marlena told Will “it gets better”, my heart did a little dance inside. It was so profound. I am excited to see this storyline unfold further. And JT, well, what can be said that hasn’t already been? All I will say however is that after 6 years, it’s about damn time Jason has received all this recognition for his stellar work. These weeks and performances haven’t been any different in terms of range… Read more »

Love Jason Thompson…his performances as Patrick have been nothing short of fabulous – as he grieves the loss of his wife.
A process I hope the writers don’t accelerate to quickly (in an effort to pair him with someone else).
Let him grieve and go through the motions of being without Robin and show him coping with being a single dad to Emma.
Jason really deserves an Emmy !

I love the Marlena and Will scenes. The acting and dialogue has been excellent. Marlena has been compassionate and supportive as a grandmother should and would be with the added touch of a psychiatrist drawing Will out and helping him to accept and acknowledge who he is in his way. Will has been ambivalent, uncomfortable, but longing to come to terms with who he is. The scenes have been emotional, educational, and poignant. Both DH and CM have done an excellent job in portraying Marlena and Will. The story line has been well done. This is some the best work… Read more »

He has been more than incredible since the “death” of Robin. I have never seen him like this before and I think he deserves the daytime emmy for best actor. Just the look of pain on his face is more than convincing. Love the show now.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
