If it’s true that alcohol and speed were involved, I pray no innocent family was involved! DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!

Alcohol is suspected..NOT confirmed to be a contributing factor along with speed. Everyone jumps on that. I say let’s wait until the cause is determined and whether or not it is an actual fact please. To spread that and then have it be false would be awful and hurtful to him and his reputation. The police should not have said that until they knew for sure. I am sending healing vibes and prayers for a speedy recovery for them both.

Normally, the authorities involved in car accidents don’t make a statement about alcohol being involved unless there’s a pretty good reason to suspect it. That being said, I hope they are ok and regardless of what caused the accident…speed, alcohol, or both..a lesson is learned.

I agree the police who deal with this kind of thing day in and day out, usually have a good idea of what happened even before anything is made official– but lets remember there’s alcohol as in plastered to the gills, then there’s alcohol as in a couple glasses of wine at dinner— we don’t the amount until or unless charges are laid; but speed, well speed is dangerous even if you are cold stone sober—-just grateful they are alive to learn a lesson if need be, because many are not as fortunate

“Suspecting” speed and alcohol involvement isn’t the same thing as speed and alcohol being involved. Speed being involved could be just going 40mph in a 35mph zone, and for all anyone knows the passenger may be the reason they said “suspected alcohol involvement”.

It’s not like the authorities never, ever get anything wrong either, especially when they are trying to comment on celebrities. /sarcasm

Why would the officer say speed and alcohol are suspected instead of speeding and alcohol? Could he mean speed…the drug?

I hope alcohol was not a part of this terrible accident. If it was shame on you for drinking and driving i am a survivor from a terrible accident from a drunk lucky to be here but that is here or there. I send prayers to Freddie and Alyssa and a speedy recovery. LeeAnn it is true that they do not know if alcohol was involved but speeding was no doubt about it and he did lose control so as a survivor I am sure Alcohol played a part everyone has a different opinion so lets not be jumping everyone… Read more »

What a shame if alcohol was involved because he should know better. How many PSA are out there asking that we not drink and drive? So anyone who does, has a total disregard for human life, and I don’t care who they are and what they do for a living.

Prayers are sent to Alyssa and Freddie. It does not matter to me if the driver was drinking or not. Accidents happen. Speed and alcohol combined is an accident waiting to happen, but we do not know for sure that alcohol was involved at this point. They can suspect but until the test results are received, that is all it is. The first thing I thought of when I heard about the accident is possibly a deer ran into the road and he swerved to miss it, or possibly a dog or something like that. All we can do is… Read more »

Kay I am curious. If your sister or mother or father or any member of yours family were the passenger and this had happen to them. Would you still think, Accidents happen. While you are absolutely correct that no one knows the facts. The situation of someone driving drunk can not be so flippantly be disregarded. I don’t get why people call drunk driving event accidents in the first place. There is no accident. A person who was drunk got behind the wheel of what will become a death machine. That person did not have an ACCIDENT. Their actions were… 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.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
