Superb news!

After the big Kristen wedding reveal and her leaving, I think everyone was concerned how they would keep the momentum going. But they sure have! They have delivered in every way!

Kudos to everyone over at Sony/NBC and DAYS! Great work by everyone involved!

After the firing of Michael Muhney, from Y&R, Jan. 30th is the last time this Y&R fan will watch. DOOL sounds like a great replacement. Will check it out on Jan. 31st. Good to know.
Thank you once again Michael Fairman for your positive spin on what is really going on. You do good work.

I think Days is going to stay strong with the stories they are putting forth now. The Ej and Abby affair was a shockingly fun twist that can’t help but make one want to see how it plays out. Nick is he dead or isn’t he (? ) keeps me engaged and I love the sweet romance they’ve put forth with Rafe and Jordan! I’m enjoying they’ve now included Lucas and Sheryl into Jordan’s mystery opening up the canvas to make that an intriguing tale. Great work Days!

DOOL is the best of the four network daytime serials thanks to he focus the lead characters — EJ, Daniel, Jennifer, and Abby. Should the writing team create a compelling story to lure Peter Reckells back to daytime and cast a new dashing young actor as Shawn-Douglas, the audience will continue to grow significantly.

Lena

Since when did Abby become a lead character?

Or Jennifer? To me the main characters are EJ, Sami, Nicole, Daniel, Brady and Eric! Who else agrees?

Wow, from the comments I’ve been reading Days sounds like the place to go after 1/30 if Michael Muhney has not returned to Y&R. For me, after being a Y&R viewer from day 1 there will be no more Y&R/CBS/Sony. Counting the days….

I don’t want to spoil this and say you’ll be free from 2/3 when you come to DAYS, but DAYS IS a WAAAAY better show than YR! You should start watching now because the major stories are just starting up again. It’s the soap to watch for sure!

The Ej and Abby rendezvous has kept me watching and wanting to see more of what happens between them. Good soapy stuff. Keep up the momentum Days, and we will keep watching!

Emily

Good for Days!!:) I’m hooked and enjoying it. Have been watching since circa ’83. I like the storylines, how the characters interact/changed up, it flows. For me the rgt amt of drama, soapiness and the shenanigans (brings a little bit of the funny:)

The Abigail and EJ love scene was smoking. I’m not looking at them as a couple per say, but enjoying that twist in the story line. Yowza, when Sami finds out….

Keep it up!!

Kelly

Always has been and always will be my favorite soap!!!

Sooo happy that the world is starting to see that daytime tv is still alive!! I have always watched DAYS but the s/l’s are sooo intriguing, it’s better than most shows at night! I love the Eric and Nicole love story..who doesn’t want to see a priest–who was drugged and raped by his future sister in law and accused his first true love of raping him–end up falling in love once again!???!! This is pure soapiness at its best!!! Keep it up DAYS:)

Dmitri

Woot woot! Days has been doing so well! Between the Daniel-Eric-Nicole love triangle-ish stuff to the shocking but very hot love scenes between EJ and Abigail. Now, with Rafe and Jordan getting together and Lucas getting more scenes with Sheryl, things are only going to get better.

“…The folks in Salem have received a wonderful New Year’s present with their latest ratings! ”

Isn’t this a further testament… to how good it is to be : in Salem!

yes it is!

Ta-Da!

there is no cast shock… no bait and switch… no waiting for story advancement, comparable to the other 3 shows… the whole cast expertly weave themselves throughout the canvas… and I’m giddy and can watch the whole hour… and still dream… along

Days of OUR Lives… for Year 2014… will reign us all in… for intrigue… awe… and fascinate us with the actors skills… and comparable on par writing… to maintain… best show… and must repeat… as best show… at this years Emmys!

Jeanie

In my personal opinion “Days” always was the number one show! Got hooked with Ejaylor and now just can’t wait for each episode – and OMG isn’t it exciting now!!! Love Nicole, Daniel, Eric triangle but can’t WAIT to see what happens with EJabbie!!
PS – have never like EJami (although I do like Alison Sweeney, just not her character)!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
