New Opening Title Sequence, Patsy Pease & Matthew Ashford Spark Season Premiere Of THE BAY!

The Bay is back with fresh episodes for its all new season which launched on Tuesday afternoon with the release of two installments.

What sparked our interest, in particular was the sexy and visually stunning opening title sequence directed and produced by series stars and show producers, Lilly Melgar (Janice) and Kristos Andrews (Peter).   The use of the actors/characters  images juxtaposed with stimulating transitions and graphics, and new music tune that fits just right make it a must-see several times over to catch all the moments with the cast.

And it is longtime standout Days of our Lives veterans Patsy Pease and Matthew Ashford who have some scene-stealing moments in episode 1 and 2.   Pease debuts as Lola a prison inmate of Sara Garrett’s (Mary Beth Evans) who definitely has some mental issues going on.   As for Ashford he returns as the Steve Jensen, who is clearly delighted that his wife Sara has been sent away to prison for killing her grandfather, and tries to use it to his advantage with the press and the Garrett family, only to have it backfire.   It’s vintage Ashford, and it was fun to watch.

As the story picks-up from last season, Sara is in the slammer in a “Orange is the New Black” style situation.  Janice, who has just been brutually raped, is completely undone and trying to figure out what to do next, and Pete gets the news that he must marry before he can get his hands on a fortune to help get his mother Sara out of jail.   Meanwhile alone in her cell Sara recalls when a young Lee Nelson played by Eric Martsolf kept her secret from ever coming to light.  How will this all play out and more?

Watch the first two episodes of Gregori J. Martin’s The Bay after the jump.  Then let us: what did you think of the opening title sequence?  What performance struck you the most?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Absolutely stunning! Love the opening credits. Very well done. I totally agree about Matt Ashford and Pasty Pease, but overall, everyone was on their mark. Looking forward to the next episode.

Liked the opening credits! Would have preferred the actor images lined up with the actor names, but I don’t mind the randomized images with alphabetical names… allows for emphasis on more major players appearing multiple times. But the composition was well done!

I just saw the first two episode and I love it . The opening intro was perfect,I feel like I looking at James Bond film. I already know that Sara Garrett is inocent. I can’t wait to learn who is the real killer is. I love the way the writer developed the various character. Good luck to the future . I hope that Bay the series will finally release on DVD format because not every one have kindle device.
