I hope Sonny lays into Will for what he has done. I love WilSon but what Will did was wrong and no doe eyed looks, no quivering chin , no tear filled eyes should get him out of this. He knew what he was doing, he felt no where near the remorse he should have and when he did , it was after they fooled around…twice! Nope..I have no sympathy for Will what so ever. He deserves whatever Sonny doles out and he needs to grow a pair and accept responsibility for his actions. After all the things Sonny did… Read more »

I agree with you. I have only watched this show since their wedding; but, from what I’ve seen Sonny has been nothing but supportive, loving and committed to Will and Ari. There is absolutely no excuse for Will’s cheating with Paul. I do not want to see the marriage end. Will needs to pay the price for his destructive behavior.

I hope Will and Sonny find a way past this and can work to rebuild their fractured marriage. Will needs to demonstrate he has grown up and Sonny needs to stick to his commitment to stop keeping things from Will (Sonny knew his ex, who he had once loved enough to propose to, was in town). I look forward to further fireworks when Will and Paul both discover their connections to Sonny. I would hate to see the only gay marriage on daytime TV end in divorce long before its time. In addition, baby Ari needs both her jail-free parents… Read more »

Sonny doesnt walk with a halo on his head…he shouldve mention to Will his ex was in Salem and perhaps that wouldve helped avoid the confrontation? But being married and supposedly loving Sonny, Will shouldve known better not to sleep around!!!

NuWill is NOT ready for the kind of relationship, not to mention marriage, that Sonny wants and needs. He has proved that over and over again, treating Sonny like crap more than once in the process. Paul, on the other hand, is now ready – after his coming out, so brilliantly portrayed by Christopher Sean – to continue the wonderful relationship with Sonny they once had. A relationship that led Sonny to ask Paul to marry him. Paul even showed us that he is willing to stay away from Sonny as long as Sonny is happy – but that will… Read more »

Why are you constantly referring to Will as NuWill? He is Will. The character of Will is not new and has been a part of Days for years now.

Nu will because nobody can see the previous character of Will, and it is better than saying unwill. But if this tag reflects the acting it should be nonWill:( So painfull to watch at times ffwd…)

I can answer that Kay from Ohio. I, for one, will never consider the present Will as the real Will. I guess Sasha and I think the same way. NuWill will ( sorry for the play- words…coincidence) never walk in Chandler’s shoes. I know it’s unreasonable; I know Will is not a new character, but this guy is….and a lousy actor, at that. I will never get used to him.

Paty

Totally agree, Cee Cee. This Will have absolutely nothing of Chandler’s Will, only the husband (lol). Therefore, it is difficult to associate the character of each other. Better they had created a new character for this actor, and removed the character of Will, when Chandler was gone.

What proof does Sonny have that Will cheated on him? He just thinks maybe or what? He is listening to what some bellboy said.

Yeah, I know Will did cheat on him, but Sonny needs proof before he lays into Will. Sure, he can ask him and see what response he gets.

CeeCee

Mo, in what world does someone acquire proof before ripping into a cheating spouse or mate? The natural instinct is to confront the cheater. It’s only human, even if it’s a mere suspicion. Proof my eye.

I know. And especially not in the soap world, but I would hope Sonny might give Will the benefit of the doubt. Of course, he may be projecting his own guilt at his own love affair with Paul.

I think Sonny has every right to be as pissed at Will for what he did with Paul not only once but twice! Will is professing all this love for Sonny as he sits by his bedside after he was almost killed due to Victor. Will is now feeling all this guilt after the fact when he should have told Sonny after it happened or thought about how much he loves Sonny and how lost he would be without him, because Will may not have lost him to some thugs blade but he could still lose him. It would have… Read more »

Yes I agree Will should have pushed Paul away when Paul MADE THE FIRST MOVE (because Will did not come on to Paul at all) and told him he was already involved with someone (since the magazine did not want him to divulge his marital status). But Will was weak and gave in to temptation (he isn’t perfect & never claimed to be) he should have been honest with Sonny about what happened. But of course that would not be as dramatic as waiting for Sonny to find out the way he did (from Derrick who assumed incorrectly that Will… Read more »

I am sorry, but what difference does it make how many times Will slept with Paul? Once is enough to condemn him. I suppose we have different sets of morals here. Different strokes for different folks.
I will never understand the concept of cheating…just keep it in your pants….it’s a soap, granted….but, as I always say, fiction is based on real life.

Will never questioned why his boss told him to take off his ring during the interviews. That was sleezy and deceptive and showed all he cared about was getting his story. It was really unfair to Paul also. Sonny has a right to be furious. He’d be happier in the long run with Paul, but this being a soap, that won’t happen.

I really want to like this story but the more that I watch Guy Wilson the more I don’t like him and his portrayal of Will. It has gotten to the point I have to flip the station when he is on because watching him is like nails on chalkboard for me. That aside, given Will’s childhood, all the lives his mother’s cheating touched you would think the writers would make Will a bit more tormented by his own cheating– but he is acting like someone who forgot to take out the garbage — not someone who betrayed his partner… Read more »

I sincerely hope that this is the absolute end for Wilson. Will is a selfish, immature, idiot. Bottom line he cheated end of. It can’t even be said this was the first time he has put his career ahead of his marriage. Those who claim that Sonny cheated because he kissed Paul are just ridiculous. First of all Paul kissed Sonny not the other way around and he put an end to it even though he clearly has unresolved feelings for Paul. And at the end of the day a kiss is just a kiss. Even if Will was interrupted… Read more »

First off i am sick and tired of people referring to him as nuwill because that annoys me second off yes while i disagree with what will has done to sonny and i think sonny should have told will that his ex was in town but derrick told sonny that will was with paul but he didnt know it was for a story for a magazine and thats why will was with him but every marriage has issues and while this is big they will work through i have faith in them that they will overcome this because we all… Read more »

Now I do say Will is wr ong and he should of not taken the job if he had to tak off his ring. but he did and he should have not cheated.

The problem stems from Sonny was the bread winner in the family. All Will wanted to do was to pull his own weight as most married couples today do. The current economy dictates that two people must work to make ends meet. Will was given the position at TruVista, thanks in part to Sonny asking Victor to line it up behind Will’s back. If that happened to me I would feel that I did not get the job on my merits alone. Sonny is turning into a control freak and I wonder if Derreck has some ulterior motif for disclosing… Read more »

Everyone, everyone and I do mean everyone, will lay into Will for cheating, because : A-he had no reason to cheat (if you cheat that easy honey, you shouldn’t have gotten married) B-Everyone in this town has their nose all up in everyone else’s relationships (Maggie’s #1)..I don’t care if they’re related! Some folks need to mind their own business. Having said that, this is the best story Days has going now. Not initially, but Paul has turned out to be quite likable and that always makes a threesome, oops, I mean a love triangle, better. I like Haiden too,… Read more »

I can’t wait for the unfaithful trio to completely fess up.People say poor Sonny but he’s just as bad as Will is when he daydreams about having sex with the (other man). It seems to me that Sonny is forgetting that even though he rejected Paul’s kiss he’s thinking too much about Paul. How about Paul’s culpritability in all this. He says he loves Sonny but he’s leading Will to bed under an admires nose (Derrek). Let’s remember now Will has always been immature from the moment he realized he was gay. I can’t wait for Jennifer attitude when she… Read more »

I think I would enjoy, or at least-be able to tolerate this storyline if nuWill was played by any other actor. I cringe when the actor is on-screen. He nauseates me. I am sick and tired of hearing about his article. I am sick and tired of the “Will” show-as a replacement of the “Sami” show
.
However, I am enjoying the Aiden and Hope storyline. Both actors have done an incredible job with the story, IMO.

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!”

Photo: JPI

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.
