I love it when any soap, whether I watch it or not, is able to hit such a milestone. DAYS is going all out in promoting their 50th by starting a year ahead of its actual anniversary. It certainly is a great money-making plan. Their 50th anniversary magazine came out with a lot of pictures and information that stopped short of this past year. Now comes another book and I can’t help wondering how short o the 50th it will come. I’m really not complaining, because I gobble it all up. But I do wonder why they couldn’t have put… Read more »

Going to the one in Bethesda, MD on Tuesday but there are only 5 cast members and all the other signings have so many more including my favorite characters. I have always wanted to visit the set or meet them on tour. Do you know if there will be any coming in 2015/2016? I would be thrilled just to visit the set or have a meet in greet. I’m 44 and have been watching since I was 10.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

Photo: JPI

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
