It all goes down after a disraught Theo is reeling from his father Abe Carver (James Reynolds) being shot, and his best friend, Joey (James Lastovic) being kidnapped.  So Theo armed with a gun is put in harm’s way as he is tries to avenge his loved one’s peril, but he may just find himself in life-threatening peril instead!

Meanwhile, it’s the showdown between decade old rivals, Orpheus and John (Drake Hogestyn)! What will happen when these two face-off in the park?

Please don’t speak for me, damien. I care. We all have opinions. So, do you wish Theo to be shot and killed because he’s black or because he’s autistic?

My opinion is the actor is doing a fine job as Theo. That’s not bad acting, it’s a realistic portrayal of an autistic teen on the higher end of the spectrum.

While watching Kyler, I was thinking how hard it must be to play someone with autism. I think he is doing a good job too.

I don’t necessarily love the teen stories and certainly don’t care for Vivian who plays Ciara. They have needed to recast that role for quite a while.

why would you assume i m referring to his condition or his skin colour?!… did i allude to any of that in my post or before you got all pissy and paranoid did you read the rest of my post about the younger set as a whole?! i dont judge anyone about the way they were born but it sounds like you re doing a fine job doing the judging… im simply airing my frustrations about the direction a show i truly love going down the drain …and if im speaking on any ones behalf its the almost million viewers… Read more »

The poor actress, she is in way over her head. TPTB should send the entire teen scene off-air. None of them seem to have the experience to carry such emotional storylines. They really should be seen and not heard, and not on every day. They are more filler-IMO. None of the storylines are interesting. Blind leading the blind-in writing, it seems.

Ted Martin

She is fine in short scenes telling her mom things like “I am worried about Theo” but her acting range isn’t strong enough to hold her own storyline together. For the time being, they should relegate the character to a small supporting role around her mom and relatives. I do not wish to be unkind, so I will say that the young actress who currently portrays Ciarra just simply needs more seasoning.

This story is embarrassingly bad even for Days which has been scraping the bottom of the creative barrel for 18 months now. Dena is partial to Theo character because of her personal circumstances, but the actor, along with those playing Joey, Claire and Ciara are so poor that it makes a bad story so much worse. And I feel for these young folks who are so miscast and in over their heads, and yes, even the actress who plays Claire is super green and only stands out as acceptable because she’s placed with non-actors in the other teen roles. But… Read more »

Agreed, Tony, albeit I love Theo. He stands out as the flower amongst the weeds. He is an exceptional young actor with an unfortunate role. I can’t even follow these storylines, any longer. Sad!!!! I wish TPTB would make up their minds about Aiden. On one hand, he was killed and buried. Then, it turns out it was actually a look-alike imposter who was the dead bad guy, thanks to Andre?? The real Aiden had been held prisoner…..so, he comes back with good intentions, or so it seemed. But, lo and behold, as soon as Hope ( who belongs in… Read more »

Celia, my dear…on today’s DOOL episode, the moment that Rafe and Hope (together) appeared on my TV screen, I IMMEDIATELY pressed the Mute button on my remote control. Yep. Hey…I am all for May/December romances, but, Rafe/Hope (for me) are a TOTAL SNOOZE-FEST!!!!! And don’t get me started on Aiden #1/Aiden #2…LOL!!!!! Make. It. Stop.

Have a good night, my friend.

I do agree but i still feel the escapees picked up a bit…instead of aging the children which meant more story.which is wasted on these poorly acting teen set..Days should had concentrated more on the adults and young set it already had like JJ, Paige, Bev and Rory who were ten times more interesting and can act…and had Theo been 13 or 14 avenging his father’s shooting would had been controversial but more riveting and interesting!!!

I love the storyline and Theo is a teen standout as is Claire. Joey has made great strides too. Ciara should be recast.

Celia
Guest

Claire is growing on me. Ciara should just not open her mouth, period. Joey isn’t doing it for me either, 4ever, my friend of friends. LOL.
But, we agree on Theo. He is the only sorased teen I really, really love…have since day one. He’s good looking, and such a talent.

I have to agree with you 4everDays about two of the actors. The young man playing Theo and the young woman playing Claire are doing good work. Both of them are alert and present in their scenes and playing their characters. I really enjoy both of them. The rest of the teens can go at anytime.

It would be so nice if They got rid of that whole younger set.. This “young” storyline sucks. The girl who plays Ciara is the worst actress on the show. Unbearable to watch.

Oh no. Bad plot twist in a frustrating storyline. Also if days allows hope to get back with Aidan to stay out of jail, this show will be yoadt

Wow, I can’t believe the nasty comments. I just hope the actors aren’t reading this. I know Damien, Mo, Jimh, and Tony that all of you are so perfect. It must be so hard to be all of you….

We are here to comment, Mark. Good or bad….
Perfection has nothing to do with it. Have you even taken an English Lit class? The point is ……constructive criticism. I do not ignore the elephant in the room.
I remember you….I remember the personal remarks to me. So, do not call the kettle black. Not fair.

I think you have the wrong Mark. I very rarely comment on this site and I have never commented on anything you have said. On that note I just feel there is always so much negativity. The younger actors are trying. Remember Sami was green in the beginning too. BTW, yes I have taken an English Literature class. LOL

@Mark. Hi, Mark, If I have mistaken you for another Mark, I do, wholeheartedly apologize. Perhaps it was the Mark who spells his name with a diminuative “m”. This was back in April, where his comments had been very scathing. So, please accept my sincere regrets. A very inane April Fool’s kind of joke? Yet, very insulting. As far as the English class bit, I was trying to be facetious. But, sadly, my stupid jokes/sarcasm never take root. LOL. Forgive me? I forgot to insert the usual ‘ LOL’. Double LOL. Nevertheless, I still think, we have the right to… Read more »

Kyler Pettis as Theo Lexie’ son…. dang it of the 4 SORAS teens… Kyler is the more comfortable one… in front of the camera and in all his relationships… even if he is at times shy…. which Kyler pulls off endearingly… gawd… he’s Abe and Lexie son it’s a sweet thing he’s got going with Claire when the lights went out in Salem… and Theo was with Arianna and Thomas Theo got caught up in the “excitement” and his REEL surprised me… “no no, Theo” Keep it together which was a surprising turn for me… I so wanted Lexie spirit… Read more »

DAYS tries to be exciting but it’s not. It’s campy, wimpy in it’s story telling and featuring the worst part of the cast. The teen actors are AWFUL. How much do people have to say it before the powers that be listen. The new head writing team is no different than the last. The stories are mired in mediocrity. Three criminals holding a whole town hostage with each of them pretending to be in disguise. They aren’t in disguise. The kindergarten class at Salem Academy could identify them. Here is what needs to happen: Marlena is possessed once again and… Read more »

HEY if they would follow these suggestions I would gladly not complain anymore. But I cannot take Ciarra’s incessant whining nor Claire groaning about her singing career even though her voice sounds like air escaping from a party balloon. I think they need a Transgender character on the show and her name could be Kate Lynn Jenkins but she used to be a famous athlete. It turns out that she (when he was a he) was involved with Paul (the once famous pro ball player) and when Sonny finds out about this, he goes crazy and tries to commit suicide… Read more »

Mateo…where Caroline is concerned, I’ll put it like this: If Caroline were to be killed off, oh, say, ‘tomorrow’ (or whenever), it wouldn’t exactly sadden me. Sorry, but, to me, NOTHING about Caroline makes sense ANYMORE!!!!! NONE!!!!! Bottom Line Here: Caroline’s time IS UP!!!!!

Ciara Alice Brady. Who’s played Ciara Alice Brady over the years? Vivian Jovanni (October 30, 2015 – present) Lauren Boles (2008 – September 30, 2015) Dakoda and Danica Hobbs (2007 – 2008) It’s pretty clear and obvious…. the recast SORAS Teen… played by Vivian Jovanni has to go. unfortunately she’s been given a year to parlay something ….

Do you mean to tell me the poor, unfortunate young woman who is trying, unsuccessfully, to play Ciara has been doing so for year????????????? Clearly, TPTB at Days are just as asleep as she is when she’s doing her scenes. We know they have no respect for their audience. They also have no respect for their show.

Who’s niece IS this actress anyway? The producer’s? I think they just need to cut her scenes way down, just have her telling Hope that she wants to go up to her room and study for a while, or scenes like that. Give her very little screen time. She is fine in quick supportive scenes but really she can’t be the center of attention, the show is bad enough as it is.

I know I have expressed my opinion before, but this ‘villain’ storyline bringing down the town is just not what I want to watch on Days. The actors are all trying and doing the best they can with the material, so no criticism of them just not the type of storyline I want to see on Days. Just expressing my opinion and vote for the record. It seems I am not a lone in this, but if others like it, and ratings are up, I can respect that. I suppose even though it is actually sad, it could be viewed… Read more »

Just want to add to my last comment. I like Theo, and glad that he will be a hero, but just not into this type of storyline or any shooting, violence, etc. on soaps or TV for that matter. Would be glad and love to have seen Theo as a hero in another capacity.

4 ever Days, MO, Celia , and everyone who thinks Theo’s character is doing a wonderful job, I totally agree. He is the best of the teens on the show. I love this young man; perhaps, the show can find some other teens to support Theo’s great work.

I’ll admit it. I don’t watch Days. However I note that it has it’s loyal viewers commenting on MF. So I have been trying to see the appeal. But when I see a header to this page about guns and killing, or suicides in the past, it’s not my idea of another soap I would add for my “escape” in the afternoon. Already too much crime and killing on GH, and the real world news.

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

Photo: JPI

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

Did you love Wally’s performance this week on Days? Did you reach for the hankies? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.

To take a stroll down memory lane of reunions past, Mary Beth Evans along with her longtime on-screen scene partner and dear friend, Stephen Nichols, watched back key scenes from the history of Stayla and offered up a second viewing experience as they commented on the clips.

Later, Mary Beth and Stephen are joined by their surprise guest and it is revealed to be Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati!

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.

Watch Mary Beth, Stephen and Ron in part one and part two and part three of their discussion below.
