It’s going to be so sad! Renee and James have done an excellent job with this story. I remember back when Renee came on as Nikki, then later came on as Lexie. She’ll be missed.

Oh man that looks sad. But glad she died out with Abe instead of a hospital! Glad the actress suggested that.

I will miss Lexie so much. Days won’t be the same without her. Renee did a wonderful job. I’m still bummed about Stefano dying before Lexie.. i would have loved to see him grief over his beautiful Alexandra. No doubt a powerful & heartfelt performance. I wish Renee all the best! Rest in peace Lexie. You’ll always be a part of Days!

This story has been told well, but tghis is an actress and character that will be missed. Always felt Lexie and Abe were moral compasses, bases of reality, for the show, not caught up too deeply as others in Salem in DOOL’s trademark more outlandish spinning of tales. Abe’s life after Lexie is fodder for very compelling storytelling. Let’s hope the new writing team can do something with that. We all experience loss and it is difficult, hence a built-in connection for a special plot.

Renee Jones/Lexi did a great job with this storyline/role. I always liked Renee/Lexie. She was always a breath of fresh air in the show. I thought her scenes with EJ were always very good. She was the voice of reason. She will be missed. This is too sad.

“Lexie dies in Abe’s ARMS”…. Sad, Beautiful, Well Executed.

thought provoking… an endearing, enchanting… individual…. you can hear Stefano… saying, her name….. “Alexandra”… that spoke volumes…

Abe’s resolute demeanor…. a part of him gone… missing…

it’s high quality stuff…. Renee Jones…. Take care… THANK YOU… Sincerely.

Yes, everything you said–very moving and well executed. I have only been watching Days since OLTL ended, but this storyline and the fine acting really got to me. I had a family member die recently and I didn’t get to say good-bye. The loss of Lexie and Renee is a painful loss for all of us. Wonderful characters and acting like this are the heart and soul of good soaps. Renee will be missed.

I saw the preview just a moment ago, that will be so sad to see Abe lose Lexie like that, I mean she was his heart! That will be so sad! I will sure miss her, and Renee Jones, too! She has just been so wonderful in this role! Thank you, Renee, for all of your great work, take care, and all the best to you!

I am very appreciative of the manner in which Days of Our Lives allowed Renee Jones to exit as Lexie. A lot of care was taken to make Lexie’s demise beautiful as well as touching. The garden was beautiful. If those flowers were real (they looked real), Days put out a lot of money just on the flowers alone! The make-up department did a nice job on Renee to make her look the part. They deserve the Emmy they just received and I hope they get one next year too for what they did on Renee.

The acting was heartfelt too. I imagine after 20 years of working together and knowing that special time as co-workers on a soap was coming to an end, it was not hard to produce the tears when they were needed. The last scenes with Lexie were well written and executed by Renee and James Reynolds. Abe’s (James Reynolds) grief upon realizing Lexie was gone was as real as it could have been portrayed. So was Hope’s (Kristian Afonso) grief upon finding Abe holding the deceased Lexie. Bo’s (Peter Reckell) words and act of comfort for grieving Abe was right on point.

After knowing of Renee’s exit for several months, watching Lexie die was not sad for me. I was sad when I heard Renee was leaving the show. So seeing l Lexie die was par for the course. But watching Theo and Abe together and hearing Theo ask his Dad, Abe, “What are we going to do now?” was heartwrenching. That is when I felt the absense of both Renee the actress and Lexie the character. Ouch!

What indeed is the Days of Our Lives family going to do now? Well, the show, cast, crew and fans will go on!

Best wishes Renee. If you ever decide to resume your acting career, come back to Days’ as Lexie’s evil twin sister! Celeste does have secrets! Stefano will need a successor!

Can someone please tell me the name of the song that was played when Abe and Theo were done talking and it showed several pictures of Lexie as it was playing. The words that really stick in my mind are “one last wish or one more wish”. I thought that song was absolutely beautiful. I would really like to know the name of it please. Thank You

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.
