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, as you say, Michael…they will reunite our beloved Robin and Patrick, and Jason Thompson will win the Emmy for the scenes he’s done since the week of February 20th!

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 and quality as about 2 dozen others of his over the years, except for the outpouring of love and good wishes he’s been receiving from it. His work is powerful. I am a proud fan.

3 Good picks I watched both ,but my heart is with Patrick all of his scenes since Robin died have been beautifully written and his acting was heartbreaking ,What is he going to do now that his robin is gone?I feel so bad for the guy I want to hold him and cry with him,so many tears since the explosion ,and watching him with the robins ashes was so sad,Yes once again Jason Thompson has proved he is a powerful actor emmy worthy .I will miss Robin and Patrick together as I have said so many times they were ,are, my favorite couple in Port Charles.

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 that has every been on Days. I am glad that they have chosen to write this important gay story line thoughtfully, sensitively, and compassionately. Kudos to Days, DH, and CM for the good work. More story lines of this quality, please! 🙂

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: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
