Polar vortex to some extent. I bet many tuned in to watch Sami catch Abby with EJ. The fallout is the only interesting aspect of this story.

Everything has me glued to DAYS. Ever-y-thing.

For starters, Blake Berris is effing phenomenal. First and foremost. His scenes from yesterday and today were so calm, cool and calculated. His character is such a snake, but he’s playing those upper-hand, overly confident overtones to absolute perfection. I love everything he does and makes every scene worth watching. When I saw the promo they showed at Day of Days with Nick attacking Gabi, I thought I’d hate the direction. They sure showed me.

EJ and Abby are hot. I’m an EJami fan, but I have eyes. For whatever they are, and wherever they’re going, in this moment, there is an attraction between the two characters you don’t want to believe is there but is and it’s making some very good, naughty television. This experienced, charming, wealthy, debonair man with the newly deflowered, young, and all around good girl Horton won’t go very far and shouldn’t last, but not only have the current scenes been great with the temptation and secret keeping, you just know that down the road the reveal will be hella explosive!

Nicole and Eric have so much chemistry I can barely stand it. JJ getting something on Theresa couldn’t have happened at a better time and was much needed for that story. Will and Sonny’s story keeps growing and flourishing. I’ve liked Brady and his portrayer for years but not until Kristen was he must-watch (though even then, he was really just an extension of her). With her gone, his story book continues to be written what with finally seeing Brady in the throws of addiction, denial and pain. They’ve have made me appreciate the actor on a whole new level, and enjoy the character in a way I never have before.

Even characters like Rafe/Jordan, Lucas and Hope are starting to get exciting material. I was skeptical of the Rafe/Jordan pairing and story but for whatever reason the buildup is working on me….and I despise Rafe! Seeing Hope actually laugh today was so great! I never knew I missed her smiling until I saw her doing it today.

There’s romance, there are great twist, the dialogue is sharp and snappy, there’s great character involvement (I mean, Kate, Daniel, EJ, Abigail etc are in two major stories right now, weaving perfectly from one to the next). I LOVE how the writers are planting things weeks, even months, before and using them to further story later. It’s just smarter writing that I appreciate. I don’t feel I’m being condescended, I’m being thoroughly entertained every. single. day. Soaps are known to ebb and flow with exciting content, but DAYS has proven the formula wrong for a year and a half now.

Haven’t missed an episode in months now, maybe over a year I can’t even remember, and I don’t plan to. It’ll only get better with Kristen and Eve returning.

Wonder if itll go higher when John finally returns and later Kristen?

The show is continuing to showcase a new generation of actors. I think it is great to keep the Hortons and Bradys at the forefront, but I would love to see another core family introduced.

I am hoping to see Eve Donavan bring a few kids with her to replace the hole left in the show since Chad, Gabi and the other younger generation have left. JJ, Abby and Theresa need friends their own age.

I can’t wait to see Hope back in the middle of the action. I was thinking today how much I would love to see Belle and Shawn come back to the show. Wouldn’t Alexa Havens be a geat Belle Black?

The acting has been top notch and the dialogue has been quick-witted and sharp. I love Nicole being at the forefront the past couple of weeks. With this character being so popular, why does she not have any family ties in Salem? Recast Brandon and Taylor.

Lastly, I think the show should bring back Peter Blake as EJ’s new enemy. I think this would take family dysfunction to a whole new level. We need another young DiMera, especially with Kristen coming back (woo hoo!!!!)

Ray I agree with you, they should bring Alexa Havens as Belle Black, she would be great. Alexa is a terrific actress.

I think the ratings are going up because of EJabby! There is so much promotion for them! They have amazing chemistry together! And their shower scenes were superb! Fans are buzzing about them on twitter. People obviously like them a lot!

EJ AND ABBY!!!!!!! They are the only reason I started watching.

It is argued that sex sells. Anybody would have been in the scene and it would have been a hit. EJ is hot, not much to say about Abby and her acting skills. Firstly, you are asking people whats keeping them glued to Days and you have two naked people making love? The week was promoted as Sami arriving early to find Ej and Abby. This made some people who would not watch, see this bullshit, It was misleading. There was the Eric, Nicole and Daniel saga which was fun to watch. You seem to be promoting just one couple. Its a man cheating on his fiance and has sex in a shower. The story line has destroyed my joy of watching EJ with Sami. It will never be the same – Sorry. It actually hurts.

I have to disagree here. I am glued to Day’s if Our Lives soley for Ejabby ! Sami and EJ never did it for me, even their supposed grief sex scene. Kate Mansi is doing a fantastic job, and her chemistry with James Scott is off the charts. I would always fast forward thru EJAMI scenes. when ejabby isn’t on all the scenes drag withe the exception of Nick’s storyline . Funny from the looks of things Nick may actually replace Stefano as Salem’s resident villain. Only when Stefano is gone for good of course.

Go EJabby! I love that EJabby shower sex was the promo and main story and brought in the best demos in almost 3 years. It’s not surprising since they are by far the hottest, sexiest and most talked about soap couple in a long time!

EJ & Abigail
Hands down the hottest pair ever!

Days has the best stories the best actors and it moves at a nice pace. I just love it every day. The other shows are good too but not as good as Days

Two words “Lorraine Broderick,” You have to credit the great writing and great cast. DAYS is my favorite soap on the air right now…I love GH, but DAYS remains grounded and built with deep character driven storylines. Seriously, no show does family as good as DSYS anymore either…not in daytime, and in Primetime the only show that beats DAYS in family focus is Parenthood! In my opinion DAYS outshines all soaps currently.

The ratings SHOULD be:

1. DAYS
2. GH
3. B&B
4. Y&R

bravo days of our lives, The show is on fire right now. Terrific acting, and wonderful storylines. I still want bo brady back, I hope that peter reckell comes back, as Bo brady. Looking forward to kassie depaiva as eve donovan, this summer. She is a pretty lady, and that woman can act. Also cannot wait until eileen davidson comes back as kristen dimera this summer. this will be a storyline arc. I am so happy, that days of our lives, got renewed until 2016.

Long time Day’s viewer. So excited to have Drake back in Salem. All Soap fans need to tune into their favorite stories to keep them strong and on the Air.

Days is the best. I’m a newish viewer, really just watching for the past year, and I’m VERY VERY happy I tuned in.

OLTL and AMC were my longtime favorites – AMC for me since Day 1, and I missed them badly when ABC killed them. I followed them online and liked the reboots, but I’d also picked up DOOL as well. I tried Y&R and that show is just awful, terrible, depressing to watch. I still try with GH but……I can barely watch it. It’s only “better” than Y&R because I have some history with the show.

But Days! THIS is what a soap should be, and what DOOL IS! Great cast, terrific families, with storylines for everyone. There are characters I don’t like but that’s a huge difference from GH where there are characters I can’t stand to even look at, much less listen to. Even the DOOL characters I don’t “like”, are characters I want to watch.

Great job, DOOL! I hope even more people discover this gem.

And you longtime viewers, good for you! I hope DOOL sticks around for a long, long time.

It seems the Nielsen ratings are finally taking into count all the other ways people watch TV these day, not not just by TV..
I have not watched my soaps on TV ever since they became available on the internet, a long time ago..
Now, Nielsen ratings is counting me ..

The Ej and Abby scenes have made me want to come back for more not just the sex – which wasn’t bad either 🙂 , but for the ying and yang chemistry and dialogue. I want to see their relationship play out for awhile even if it does not last forever. Also, like Nicole and Eric, but I hope that they spice up their relationship and interaction more. The Kate and Nick scenes were very good also. Hope is always good and look forward to her having a storyline.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
