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

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”
