I was watching Days when Crystal’s first started on the show and enjoyed Bo and Carly’s pairing back in the day. I am thrilled she has a chance to reprise the role and she is bringing a lot to Salem. As for Daniel and Carly’s tryst story….well they are tying her to a few characters already on the show, so that is a good sign she is going to stay. I can just go with the flow of the story. They would have to do a convoluted story to make this happen. Ok, it’s not a romantic match up…oh well.… Read more »

I think Daniel being the father is boring. No one really cares except perhaps Chloe and of course Melanie. If they turn this into a Dan/Carly/Chloe triangle, I will be so disgusted. It seems that’s all Days knows how to do nowadays are triangles. How trite. The only couple I’m enjoying right now is Bo and Carly and I’m sure they’ll mess that up soon enough in order to orchestrate a Bo/Hope reunion which is a complete snoozefest. The supercouple Days are over. Please let it end. Bo and Hope have nothing left. Watching them is like watching paint dry.… Read more »

What do I think? Surely there are twists and turns around the corner? You don’t waste the opportunity of gettings Crystal Chappell back in this role after 17 years opposite many of the actors who were around during the magic of Carly 1.0 on this large dose of ‘who cares’. Why would fans and more importantly who in Salem would care that Carly and Daniel had a child? Melanie’s father needs to be one of only two characters, Lawrence or Bo. Perhaps once Lawrence is revealed to be ‘undead’ (you know it’s coming), we will get a soapful and unsafe… Read more »

I totally agree. Daniel as the daddy was predictable and boring. snooze. He is not a major character and his being Melanie’s father will not have that big of an impact. I mean really can’t the writers come up with anything better? We at Team Delusional have come up with better story ideas than the Days writers have. Apparently the higher-ups didn’t let the writers know they needed to step up their game for someone as extra-ordinarily talented as the beautiful Crystal Chappell. Come on Days get creative. Give us a twist. Bo or Lawrence would be much more interesting.… Read more »

Could this reveal have been anymore anti-climactic OR predictable? Let me provide a little tip. Soap audiences are much smarter in general than writers tend to give credit. Daniel was hardly “unexpected” It was clear from Carly & Daniel’s first interaction, something of their past would be revealed down the line. I am still wishing for the real soapy twist, a Bo or Lawrence daddy reveal. Now THAT has story potential and riveting excitement that would pack dramatic punch, while changing the fabric of DAYS, forever!

Perhaps I could have been more concise last time. Daniel Daddy from left field is weak and safe.

I sure hope TPTB have further tricks up their sleeves.

Why again do I care that Daniel is Baby Daddy? Oh right…because Carly and Daniel have only managed to share a handful of screen time together since October of 2009. zzzzzz…If DAYS wanted to capitalize on Carly’s history in Salem, Baby Daddy should have been Bo or Lawrence…heck, I would have accepted Justin or Victor. At least with Victor, we’d understand why he hated Carly, the homewrecker.

Wow Lee, did you just say Victor as baby daddy? Ick!! LOL I thought about Justin too as Mel’s father. Either way, anyone is better than Daniel because like you said no one really cares. I know I don’t.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
