I’m IN DAYS Heaven !!! smorgasbord . YES ! “thank you” for the return of Paul Telfer.
loaded ! just thanks.

Thia Megia has already caught me. STUNNER JJ is in need of attention

I am over the character of Xander, honestly. And I just want him to stay gone for good! As for Haley Chen… I’m excited to see what’s to come with her, especially if it means more JJ time!

Xander is the new Stefano. He’s so bad and does it with so much suave that you gotta hate him but at the same time, you don’t want him to go away forever. He always gets my attention when he’s on.

He gets my attention too. Is it bad to say he should do all his scenes shirtless? 🙂

Paul Telfer gets a let… when he first started @DAYS.. his scenes with John Anniston’ Victor Kiriakis were stunning… watching Xander come close to being accepted.. WANTING very much to be part of a family. ie: when he first started , @DAYS changed writing regime.. AND he was turned that quickly , hastily to a go to character to “write off” and was let go

watching Xander and Victor spar.. was stunning to witness… you could see an easy affable chemistry that was exciting to watch… YES YES YES I cheered Victor and nephew could work, grow, and become familial.. because Paul Telfer Xander has many outlets, layer of intrigue that IS EXPLORABLE…

^^ which is my hope and wish… down the road.. if he isn’t written in to a corner.. and as you’ve said.. which I agree… to find an actor, in this day and age.. newbie welcome respite… Paul Telfer is that suave, slick, maniacal, dubious means of nature.

with Ron Carlivati.. Sure, his shirt is missing.. yet I see that RC is surely steering Xander a continued mix.. even if I was totally surprised to see him as the bad guy that all of Salem it seems will hate him even more.. with his treatment of Nicole… YET it seems Nicole , is still alive and heading back to Salem… WHEW !!!! Oy.. ^^ per @4EVER. I had wanted a complete reprieve of bad guy Villain , when he returned Jeannie Theresa back to Salem.. which never happened.. that was disappointing.. especially since Victor was in on what was going on with Theresa. she assured Xander she would speak up on his behalf when they both made it back to Salem.

he’s an amazing actor who does have chutzpah … LOL… yeah I salute

with all the high caliber writing RC AND his co-horts are drumming up.. let’s hope this time around… he is given wings .. because he flies in my orbit


why not have him a part of the Kiriakis Empire.. he’s a viable contentious riveting hold… KEEPER

shoot, I know @DAYS films 6 months ahead… yet i’m fairly certain on my assessment… not that many may “care” about Xander… I do

I’m just glad he’s back on track… AND his take… keeps REELING

it just happened out of no where… how quickly Victor turned on him… so that was a clue right their.. that he was expendable

As long as Claire isn’t singing along with her.

That’s pretty funny – yikes –

Yey, the Filipino-American presence in Days stays on! 🙂

haley sounds interesting good for jj and casey moss hes a talent who needs a good storyline as for stock villian xander keep it we don’t need him

I have been soooo enjoying days…..yet, I don’t like this thing between Will and Paul. It’s so lame!! Will has such will power….pardon the pun. I know I could never sacrifice my love for the sake of what, exactly? Are there really such people in the world?
I could never be with someone else while passionately in love with another. I am soooo weak!! LOL.
As far as Xander, I can only take his aggressive machoism in bits and pieces.
If he survived the fire; did Nicole?…..too hopeful, I guess.

Yes, Celia, Nicole will return. It was inadvertently spoiled in the Xander returns story in The DOOL App when it was mentioned that Paul Telfer has scenes with Ari Zucker. It was a fun find!!!

American Idol contestant??

Why do I get the feeling that ReRon is going to come up with a new auto-tuned bubblegum singing waste of time like he did on the other two shows he ruined?

I’m glad Xander is returning.

BTW, loving the DOOL app!

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.
