DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Whitley Has a Complete Psychotic Break; Abe is Rescued


Kim Coles (Whitley) has been showing up for this storyline on Days of our Lives, and has been the best part of it, and nowhere was that more noticeable than on Monday’s July 24th episode.

In story, while Marlena (Deidre Hall) tells Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) that she now remembers Whitley was a patient of hers while she was possessed by the Devil (one of the beats of this story we don’t like), she tries to call the nurse concerned after mounting evidence points to Whitley having abducted Abe (James Reynolds).

At Whitley’s apartment, things take a deadly turn when she wheels out the damaged space heater she has kept all this time that killed her husband and their three cats. She begins to share with Abe how sad she was about the day she left “him” all alone when tragedy struck.

Whitley believes now God has given her a second chance to make sure ‘he’ is never alone. At this point, she turns on the gas with the intent of killing herself along with Abe from the carbon monoxide. Whitley tells a sedated and drugged Abe they are just going to rest together on the couch. At this point, it’s more than clear that Whitley is going in and out of reality and having a psychotic break.


Marlena has made her way to Whitley’s apartment and found the front door open.  She walks in on the scene and Whitley grabs an umbrella to fend her off, calling Marlena, “Charlemagne”, the fictitious character in Body and Soul. While Whitley is going off the rails, Jada (Ella Cantu) and Rafe (Galen Gering) show up.  Whitley is ready to take a lighter and ignite the apartment, but Abe grabs her hand and it calms her down. She the lighter to Rafe.

Later, Rafe airs out the the apartment, while Whitley rocks in a chair with her stuffed cats. Jada tells Whitley she will get the help she needs and reads her rights. Whitley is non-reactive.


At University hospital, a rescued Abe is taken in by wheelchair and sees Paulina (Jackee Harry), Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Eli (Lamon Archey) but has no idea who anyone is.

One final note: When Lani (Sal Stowers) was reunited with Eli at the hospital (after surviving being drugged by Whitley), the chemistry between ‘Elani’ was still palpable. Here’s hoping DAYS writes another story arc that will feature Sal and Lamon, so they will want to make a return to the streaming soap opera.

So, what did you think about the wrap-up of the Whitley King/Abe Carver kidnapping storyline? What did you think of the performance on today’s episode by Kim Coles? Let us know in the comment section.  But first, in case you missed it, check out our livestream interview with James Reynolds, Kim and Terrell Ransom Jr. You can watch it below.

Thank unholiness that this ridiculous storyline is finally wrapping up.

And memo to ReRon….

Don’t blame ME when your stories don’t make sense. Saying my occupation of Marlena led to this… that’s really weak, dude.

I’ve enjoyed this storyline. Kim did a great job!

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Alex Learns He’s Victor’s Son While Xander Learns He’s the Father of Sarah’s Baby

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, two bombshell secrets were revealed that rocked to the core two men who have been lied to by the people they love. First, in the pick-up from Monday, Justin (Wally Kurth) tells Alex (Rob Scott Wilson) that in Victor’s new will, he is in fact, Victor’s biological son.

A devastated Justin has to tell Alex that he is not his biological father, and that Angelica had an affair with Victor, and she made Victor agree to never claim Alex as his own for it would send shockwaves through the Kiriakis clan.

While Justin sits down with Alex and assures him that this does not change the fact that he still considers himself Alex’s dad, that doesn’t seem to make Alex feel any better. Alex feels like he has been lied to his whole life, especially by Victor.  In addition, this news means that Alex inherits the other 50% of Victor’s legacy. The other 50% was given to Maggie (Suzanne Rogers), even though at the time of his death, Victor was supposedly never legally divorced from Vivian (Louise Sorel).

Bonnie (Judi Evans) finds out the news from Maggie, and wants to be there for her husband, so she heads back from Horton Town Square to comfort Justin. Alex asks Justin to leave as he needs some time alone. Justin hugs his ‘son’ from behind and then walks out. Later, Justin breaks down in tears in Bonnie’s arms.  Meanwhile, Alex is seen looking at a portrait of Victor trying to process what this all means for him moving forward.

While this is playing out, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) breaks down and tells Xander (Paul Telfer) what she overheard Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Phillip (John-Paul Lavoisier) talking about – that Xander is the biological father of Sarah’s (Linsey Godfrey) baby.  Chloe even goes so far to admit, that at first, she was going to hide the secret, not only to keep Xander, but because Sarah didn’t want him to know. However, she had second thoughts.

Chloe levels with Xander knowing when she tells him, he is going to hightail it over to the Brady pub where Sarah is tying the knot with Rex.  An emotional Xander tells Chloe he loves her, but they both know it’s the end of the line for them.

At the Brady pub, Phillip officiates the ceremony and Rex and Sarah say their “I do’s,” but then, Xander shows up.  He confronts Sarah and she admits it’s true. The baby is his. He asks to speak to her privately and so they head out to do so. Meanwhile, in the aftermath, Chloe gets a knock on her door, and it’s none other than Phillip who shows up to console her. Will they hit the sheets for old times sake?

So, what did you think about the performances today of Wally Kurth, Rob Scott Wilson, Nadia Bjorlin and Paul Telfer? Are you glad Xander knows the truth? Happy that Alex is Victor’s son? Do you think Xander will still be revealed to be the true son of Victor’s when all is said and done? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
