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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
