Oh, my God!!! No way!!! I love Bonnie!!! I was sad when they sent her out of Salem but so happy to see Judi is going to do both characters. What a way to go, Ron!!! I knew from the get-go you were going to start hitting home runs the moment you started at DAYS. Can’t wait for the other surprises I know you’re going to hit us with!!!

Ron had ONE chance to prove to me that he could be the last headwriter for DAYS. I haven’t even watched the first episode….just read reviews….and already….he has FAILED!!! Not only did Marlena have a twin sister on the show…she has had this Hattie look alike luring in the background for 15 years amounting to nothing!!!! And the Bonnie Lockhart as written by Reilly was nothing more than a ridiculous cartoon. After doing double and doppelgänger stories on GH ad nauseous…Ron’s first episodes are more of the same??? AND…Anjelica…a woman who would ahem charitably be 72 by now…is still lusting… Read more »

I have my lotto scratchers ready!

I hope Bonnie marries Lucas while masquerading as Adrienne which culminates in “Adrienne” having her very own Huge Horton Ornament! That would end the storyline because everyone will know the tacky ornament is really for Bonnie!

I’m ready to laugh (and win the lottery)!

Thank you, Ron and Judi!!

A special thanks to Michael for the DAYS coverage!

Not into the doppelganger stories at all!!! Don’t need Hattie or Bonnie. God this has been overdone for decades now. I’d like to see some sophisticated storylines show up and not the same old recycled stuff that treats the audience like they’re dumb. I’ll be skipping these episodes…I just have no interest. I hope Ron wraps this up quickly and this is not part of his entry…that would be highly disappointing!

I have to agree with you, Yvonne – I feel like some of the storylines are beyond far-fetched and often, I feel almost insulted. I also agree that redundant plots that have been done-to-death are tiresome.
The writers need to come up up with some new ideas and something a bit
more reflective of today’s society.

I’m with you John. In the meantime I’m forwarding past the ridiculousness. I’m waiting for Sammy and Will…I hope that’s not a disappointment too.

Unfortunately…this is what Ron does. This is not a short term entry thing. This is how he wrote for 3.5 years at GH. The fact that his very first episode is blatantly about doppelgangers is just a promise of more to come. I will not be watching because it makes NO sense. Anjelica Deveraux is a 75 year old woman! Seriously….lusting after Justin, a 55 year old man she slept with 30 years ago???? Seriously…we need some sort of character development and motivation that makes sense!!

Ridiculous. As I said to John above, my fast forward button is on.

Really? Bring Bonnie back? Gee, I don’t know. But, I will keep my peace until after the fact.
How different can this possibly be from all the other look-alike stories? Good versus evil? That’s how it play out…over and over.
Hmmmm….I love Judi Evans-Luciano—-she can act —be anybody—still; I just don’t know……

Haven’t we all had enough of “look-a-like” characters? 30 to 40 years ago they were writing stories like this, it was all right in it’s day but isn’t it time for Soaps to grow if the genre is indeed to survive?

Eric Buchanan

30-40 years ago? Well from my count, Y&R (the top rated soap) has done at least 4 of these stories in the past 10 years….Patty Williams and the look alike Psychiatrist. Sheila coming back with Phyliss’ face, Sheila’s sister having Lauren’s face, and finally Jack and his look-alike South American drug lord.

I don’t know how old you are, Eric but trust me 30-40 years ago Soaps were doing this “evil twin” type of thing or someone coming to town who “looks exactly like” so and so. Forty years ago on One Life to Live the character of Pat was duped by her twin sister and substituted for her while keeping her tied up and trapped. On All My Children, the character of Natalie was kept down a well while her crazy “twin” Janet took over her life. So yes, it’s been done to death and even on the night time show… Read more »

Also about 40 years ago Deidre Halls twin sister played Marlena’s twin sister Samantha and had Marlena take her place at a mental sanitarium while she took over Marlena’s life with then then fiance Don Craig.

While its a look a like character, Bonnie was fun and an all around great character. I’m going to enjoy Judi playing her again. However, as much as I like Adrienne, she has been a bit boring lately but with Ron on board now hopefully they will either utilize her as both characters or write Adrienne out and keep Bonnie!

I’m not sure that I like that there will be trouble in John and Marlenas love life, I think they have had their tme with romantic tooing and frowing. And really we like seeing them in their roles of giving support and wisdom to their family and friends in Salem. Leave the romantic drama to the young ones.

Also when Angelica was last in Salem, isn’t that when Marlena was presumed dead? How does Angelica even know about Marlena?

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
