Melissa Reeves storyline is riveting, it’s not shoved in your face, it’s been done in a way that allows this story to stretch out longer, which is true to life, these things, addictions can haunt someone for years! in soap load, a story such as this would move quickly, and I think that since Melissa Reeves is not front-burner like Hope, this allows Melissa to dig deep as a creative artist, and she is knocking her scenes out of the park. Melissa had amazing work with Greg (ex-Eric), those scenes were WOW!!! so good. I loved seeing Jennifer’s hair all… Read more »

Watch, Janet, watch!

He’s appearing in 5 or so episodes, not necessarily back to back. It could be a trial run. If the masses watch, then he may be asked to return in a larger capacity.

I am having mixed feelings of Days using these stand alone episodes of late. On one hand giving the whole episode to one character does allow the writers to go further into depth and allows the actor time to really act. The stand alone episode with Abby and Ben was great, the stand alone episode featuring Aiden has its moments– and hence the problem, unless really compelling stuff come off the screen like when Sami and EJ had their stand alone episode about his cheating on her, these hour long episodes featuring one character the one show can get dull… Read more »

Days is doing what Guiding Light did like a decade ago, they had special episodes on Wednesdays focusing on one character or couple.

I guess my feelings are also somewhat ambivalent regarding these stand alone episodes – it makes the flow seem somehow disjointed in a way (of the show in general) but I suppose it’s not hurting a show that moves at a snail’s pace anyway. Don’t misunderstand me, I am aware that soaps move at a slow rate, but this show takes that fact to an extreme. I like the character of Jennifer, and I liked the players around her – and the scenes were well-acted……..it’s Belle and Phillip that I find exceedingly dull and uninteresting for some reason as well… Read more »

I’m not excited having Jack back just for a few episodes. You know how many horrible actors you can get rid of to bring Jack back for good? Especially with the younger set (looking at you Ciara!)

Matt Ashford is exactly what Days needs now. He is brilliant and together with Missy they will bring back that old magic

I don’t really like these standalone eps. Wish Jack was not dead and returned to Salem. His family sure needs him!

Matt and Missy are magic together as Jack & Jennifer, despite the fact that they’ve received such terrible writing over the years (particularly all of the times Jack “died”). It’s like watching Stephen & Mary Beth as Steve & Kayla. Fantastic actors, nuanced performances. Their shared history, their chemistry, and the ways they bring out the best in each other made them such great partners. I really don’t understand why Days doesn’t keep Matt around for good.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
