Thank you Michael! Loved it! Loved SN and MBE’s excitement, hopefulness and belief in the writing! AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!


No couple can compare to Steve & Kayla. Best supercouple of all time! I’m thrilled they’ll be back on our screens!

Thanks so much for interviewing them, Michael!


Best news ever! Cannot wait to see Steve & Kayla back on my screen. So looking forward to the 50th and my all time favorites Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans.


Wonderful! So great to see Stephen and Mary Beth together again. And I am officially excited about the story after seeing this. I wasn’t sure what to expect by way of story and the writing given how poorly handled that was during Patch’s previous return years ago but to hear that Stephen and Mary Beth are praising this story and the writing, has me now doing a happy dance. They are the best couple ever on daytime and I can’t wait to see them back onscreen.


Love Patch. He is the best bar NONE

But have yet to hear he is under contract!
Corday do NOT mess this up.


So nice to see Stephen and Mary Beth, and to hear their thoughts on how things are currently behind the scenes. The writers are on the floor. The writing’s good. I mean, really?

It must be better than many of us are used to at the moment because Stephen and Mary Beth don’t usually say a lot if the writing’s substandard, meaning they focus on other things…like how much fun they’re having together or how much fun it is to be with the cast, but they don’t say much else…or if they do talk, their feelings are kinda clear, one way or the other.

So, the writers must be trying. There must be true effort out there at the moment, and I’m glad. Time will tell if we like the stories, but if there’s some honest enthusiasm, that must mean the writing’s at least decent. I hope.

On Steve and Kayla…

I waited for a long time to see if Kayla would get a story on her own. That didn’t happen and I was disappointed. I would have been happy to see her move forward with her life in Steve’s absence.

Of course, it’s hard to think Kayla would or could be as happy with another fella as she has been with Steve. Granted, they’ve obviously had their struggles during their time in Africa, but that love they shared didn’t just disappear. Here’s hoping whatever’s been wrong can and will be resolved…NOT in a day or two, but in an honest to goodness, solid relationship story, full of twists and turns and stops and starts that make sense.

Thank you, Michael Fairman, for this interview.

Thank you, Days, for bringing Stephen back.

Thank you, Stephen and Mary Beth for still being willing to play these roles so we can see Steve and Kayla together again.


Though I must confess that I have a weakness for Stefan Cassadine, I will take Stephen Nichols anyway I can get him. He looks sexy as ever! So good to see you Stephen, back in daytime. 🙂

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
