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

Photo: JPI

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!

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.

Oh my DAYS! Still not watching. A vengeful life sized teddy bear. Uh-uh. Not on my TV.

I was rooting for Duke all the way! Of all the things Ava has done, cutting up the beloved Duke was, for me, a bridge too far!

Ron Carlivati needs to learn not to beat a joke to death. What he thinks is clever and funny often comes across as heavy handed and overplayed.

Everything about the stuffed bear has been lazy stupid writing.

Days storylines just keep getting worse and worse. This is a good example.

Says storyline is no longer worth my time. This life size teddy is mild compared to the demonic possessions that I suffered through until Christmas when I thought it would end. I’ve watched Days for 30 years but no more…tell me if and when this plot ends and I might come back? Not sure!

Guys relax it was a dream a sense of humor is needed for days. Ava calling life size duke a giant Beanie baby was a trip

No thank you. It’s high-time Ron Carlivati exit as head writer, because this soap has been dreadfully unwatchable. Tamara Braun deserves better than this.. as do many of the cast. Also, why does this soap look so cheap? The DOOL App and Day of DAYS event look so much nicer… can’t those cameras be used instead?

Duke the Bear is about as ridiculous as the writing for psycho Ava under Carlivati.

Satan
Guest

Yeah, seems like he’s using his old scripts for Heather Webber on GH, and just changed the name. Like Heather, Ava certainly had her mental health issues in the past, but ReRon turned her into a complete cartoon character… which is where Ava’s headed at the moment.

Also bringing back that phyco that was in a coma lol can’t even think of her name right now the one that keeps trying to break belle and Shawn up . Honestly I keep waiting for Stephano to come back as much as they keep showing everyone tt that painting on the wall. I also am not impressed w paulenna why did they put her on DOOL on like her as a actress but her on DOOL has really not been a good character for her. Also have am upset that I couldn’t see the spin off at Christmas time… Read more »

Hate the dream sequences, masks, DEVIL takeovers and jumping into other bodies. How about some real life, happy and sad, mystery, etc. Such poor jerking around of the audience. Didn’t use to be this way.

Days of Our Lives is losing my interest and is getting more and more ridiculous and lame. You have some great actors on board and then again some not so great. Please lose the Devil theme–it’s been done.

Agree w you I would like to know what’s going on w Doug does he have Alzheimer’s in real life? Also you never see victor stand anymore you only see him sitting in a chair. I also think this entire fake your own death w Philip thing then NOTHING is stupid what are the writers thinking: I just don’t see that going anywhere why did they even go there and just leave it like they did Philips entire purpose of that was?????? Because it’s not like Chloe and Brady are even talking about getting together but some of the story… Read more »

The life size bear was pretty stupid but I could take that any day over this Johnny character being the devil. He forgets more lines than he remembers and looks off to read them from the que cards. This guy can’t even act. PLEASE get rid of him!!! The Craig and Nancy couple are awful!!! That hair on her head looks like the wig it is!! Kristen and those fake boobs are cheap looking!! These “masks” of all the different people is an idiotic story!! This writing team is just not working!! Oh and PLEASE get rid of Chantelle!! Let… Read more »

So glad to find someone that feels like I do. Yes, Johnny no talent is the worst! He can’t sing either. The one time I heard him, it sounded like they were killing a cat.Dont get me started on Craig and Nancy. As I said in another comment, alone they are fine but together I think they look so mismatched, with her being almost 15 years older than Craig and her simmering all over him, ugh

I don’t like such unrealistic storylines, especially the devil appearances. I’m considering not watching Days anymore.

Not the most brilliant idea. Also so tired of Johnny too. The devilish acting is old news. May look for something else to watch. Love all the other characters but would appreciate some new faces and characters.

Really!? The story lines are so juvenile and boring. I have watched this drama since the very beginning and am hoping the writing team can come up with some intriguing and believable thoughts to put together story lines worthy of this talented cast
Have to let you know many of my friends and family who also watch Days are getting tired of these plots.
I am hopeful this show will not be canceled due to lost viewership. Please save this daytime drama for the sake of your dedicated audience

I’ve been a long time watcher of days of our lives since the early 70’s. Actually it’s the only soap I ever watch…but in the last several months, I’ve seriously been thinking of not watching it anymore! It has turned into a comedy show, & the only reason I’m laughing is bcuz it has been so stupid! The devil coming back into Marlena Evans again? Now in Johnny??!! Seriously! Oh, & Ava killing Duke, then a life size Duke fights with her?! I mean come on guys! U gotta have more of a creative mind than this! A Sensible mind…this… Read more »

I cannot believe the pairing up of Chloe’s chubby little, fresh out of the Beauty Shop mother with the very youthful actor that plays her dad. On their own, their o.k but together they look ridiculous.

What would have been even funnier, if Ava pulled off a mask he was wearing and it was Rafe. No more crazier than the rest of this show the past few months.

I am not a fan of Ava or life size Duke. The worst storyline is the devil. It is time to retire that storyline. It is ridiculous. Please stop it while you can salvage it.

I found it funny light humor lol. Although I as a huge fan am not happy w the possession of the devil thing returning from find it silly and wish the writing of it all out would happen sooner than later: the entire matlana devil thing is just stupid and bringing Charlie and the others back from the dead on Halloween was stupid I’ll be glad when the devil stuff is over honestly.

I loved it. DOOL is funnier and more entertaining than almost anything in prime time. Rafe with coffee and a bear claw was perfect. My husband got hooked when Marlena was the devil. The writing, the real life snarky comments , have moved the show forward. It’s a soap opera. I watch it for entertainment. And I’ll miss it during the Olympics.

Days needs new head writers and fast or the soap will not get another renewal. Sad to say and I’m a recent viewer (since 2010) but the past few years I’ve been reading the daily/weekly/monthly summaries instead of watching due to bad writing. We’ve all been saying this for years but something’s gotta give. Griffith, Dena Higley, MarDar, TomSell, and Re-Ron are all awful writers that need to be fired and never allowed to return. Many of them have been given multiple chances writing for the soap and have just seen storylines get worse and worse–along with the ratings. My… Read more »
