DAYS fans, here’s hoping you don’t get a fiasco like OLTL got.

Awwwwww, Rex and Gigi were a cute couple on OLTL. The bullying storyline was really well done and generated a lot of storyline for the last year of the show.

I loved the character of Mimi until she was one in a long line of normal women who were turned into man hungry, desperate, lying psychotic shrews by Jim Reilly. Ron C. LOVED to write for her as Gigi on OLTL, where she was fun and spunky, and very early Mimi like. I hope this version of Mimi is still funny and spunky but once again loveable! They should bring back a version of Phillip K. for her. John Paul Lavoisier played Phillip, he played Rex to her Gigi, and they were involved in real life. They had mad awesome chemistry! Phillip needs to come back not written as a corporate douche bag. He was always the slacker, the surfer type who was not interested in rhe family business, which was a WELCOME presence in the Kiriakis household!!

Best summation, Jovin…..exactly what I would have written.
I love both Farah and John Paul….and, yes, their sexual chemistry was fast, furious and through the roof.

One great thing about RC.
He never forgot the ”forgotten” soap stars ..
When he has an opening he will bring them back, and that is respect for them and a good thing.

“… I have for a long time advocated that Gay Twitter should adopt Days of Our Lives for this very reason; watching the soaps alone can be an exercise in nostalgia, but watching them together can be a real scream”

We need to ramp up the storyline with Ciara… She is a great actress and hope there are some big plans for her. Good to see old Days alumnis to come back but rarely the storyline is good enough to keep the interest..

Come on Ronnie.!!!! Great Job so far!

Definitely agree with you Tim S. I think Victoria Konefal is doing a very good job as Ciara. She’s bright and energetic and present in every scene. I hope they involve her in a bigger story. I’m sure she will rise to the occasion.

Geezus…..

Mimi was a waste of a character even BEFORE she became one of ReRon’s pets. I can’t imagine what a shit show she will be now. And did they really need another excuse for him to bring trailer trash Bonnie back again.

Any more Lockhearts show up and I come up there and start throwing pitchforks around!

About time! The show has brought back everyone else, Shawn, Belle, Philip, & Chloe why did it take them this long to bring her back.

“Daytime Emmy Award-winning soap opera”
That’s nice. I like reading that in regard to Days.

I liked Mimi. Liked Bonnie even more. Unfortunately, she’s in prison so I doubt we’ll see much of her. Don’t know what story Mimi would be involved in. I wonder if Belle will be back too.

Richard

I wonder who she will be involved with! Very age appropriate for Eric and/or Brady!!!

Good Lord, NO. Not a Mimi fan, never was, but she was part of the woodwork on Days back in FF’s time. But FF lost me completely when she was on Days, especially the things she had to say, the people she dissed, including soaps in general when she was on OLTL.
Anyone but her.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
