As per the last sentence in above story.I have to say a lot of us are NOT looking forward to another ” aged-up” teen addition. We have enough without more teenage angst.

Why Oh Why, Violet, are we consistently tortured? Ashland Locke and his insipid wife weren’t enough? Where’s Lauren, Michael, Fen, more Traci and Ashley, Jill, Paul? Sometimes I think they ask too much of fans, especially all at once.

Hi Soaphound
Thanks for your comment. I am so sick of this show right now. What you just said is true, and truthfully the SLs right now are sooo boring. Let’s get Adam by any means, so sick of him. Can’t stand Kyle and Summer and the horrible Sally pushing herself into everyone’s life, and dumb Jack just eating it up
Devon and his two love interests, to me who cares? He and Mariah having Abby’s baby, and her without a husband anymore, again who cares? Poor Faith, enough with her crazy family but now possibly being stalked by some preditor, is something Iam not going to want to watch. Don’t even let me get started on Phyllis, nothing ever good comes of her manipulating people’s lives. Hope you find something here that you can disagree on so hopefully you can give me a new outlook. Guess I’ve become jaded after so many soap watching years, about 65 I’d guess. Thank you for letting me blow off steam, and another thing, it’s becoming increasingly harder to find a place here to voice our feelings, it’s just not for Soaps anymore, but seemingly everything and everyone else.

I can honestly say, Violet, that this is the deepest trough Y&R has been in for many years. I’ve been watching since day one, so it’s somewhat heartbreaking to say this. The common denominator for me: I just DON’T CARE. Not about Kyle & Summer (though I don’t mind Kyle with Lola); not about Sally Slimeball; not about Devon and Nate inexplicably two-timing lovely Amanda for dreary, cheating Elena; Victoria’s adolescent manipulation of loathsome Billy; dullsville Lily; and especially not about Jack’s sudden brain death. I will disagree about Adam, because he’s such a talented actor and amazing looking. Also it finally gives Chloe some screen time. But Sharon’s behavior is also despicable. So…I’ll stay watching (and hope you will too) in the hope that THINGS HAVE TO RIGHT THEMSELVES as they have in the past. Fingers crossed. We can tough it out.

I like Adam , also ; plus , I agree , situations usually get better. I already see some light!

Soaphound. Well said! I agree with your every point. I’m kind of on Chelsea’s side but I wish she hadn’t nearly killed Rey with her plot of vengeance. She has good reason to hate Adam. His worst crime, however, was making Chelsea wear that ugly, green-brown, velour sweat suit which hasn’t seen since the 80s.

Which hasn’t been SEEN since the 80s. The edit button was not WORKING! Just ruins a good joke!

Oh Harry, that track suit has seen more mileage than the Concorde! And why was Chelsea devoid of makeup UNTIL it came time to execute her revenge plan? Did Meredith’s duties suddenly expand?

I am with you, I don’t mind Kyle abs Lola, but am tired of the whole Kyle abs Summer. I think getting rid of Abby’s husband was a huge mistake and making both of them unable to have kids. I CAN’T stand the direction they have Sharon going with being secretive and pining over Adam when she has an amazing and supportive husband at home. The storyline is old and Rey would not put up with the kids let alone her lies. Just let Chelsea and Adam keep being their crazy selves and cut the whole Adam and Sharon. Phyllis and Nick make have been played out. I don’t mind Sally abs Jack. Having Elena cheat took a bad direction. They need more males so Lola can actually find someone and Victoria so she can leave Billy and Lily alone because I like them together. I really like that Moises is back and has aged and I like him meeting Faith and hope he becomes the close trusting friend she needs.

You’ve stated all that you don’t like ; however , I didn’t read anything that you do like. Even when I’m unhappy about certain situations or people , I usually add a positive spin by listing what I like about the show.

Lol I think you better stop watching the show.. it’s causing you too much stress:)

I agree with you, Violet. And you, too, Soaphound. “Teenage angst” is difficult enough to go through personally — sadly, I can still remember… So many soaps create these elaborate, contrived plots for teens, only to get rid of them a couple years down the line.

Well said, Jamesj75. They seem to forget the cardinal rule of teenage problems: they’re only interesting to the persons involved. The rest of us either groan or hit Fast Forward! Hang in there, my friend. The show has to get better…right?

Thank you, Soaphound! We can only hope for better Y&R, GH, B&B, Days ahead…

James, speaking of teenage angst, the name of Faith’s crush (and the boy who was impersonated by that awful mean-girl Jordan) is Tommy Ross. I have the tendency to remember useless details from popular culture, and so I immediately recalled that the boy who took Carrie White to the prom was named Tommy Ross. So for a minute there, I thought the writers were going in that direction. You know, have Faith use telekinesis to get even with all her bullies, including, but not limited to; Jordan, John Travolta, the girl wearing braids and a baseball cap and the smirking gym teacher.

Funny stuff, Harry! And I also have a habit of remembering some “useless details from popular culture.” My affection for nostalgia is palpable. Cheers!

I’m okay with it. He’s about the same age as Faith and that poor girl could use a real friend and love interest. I’m looking forward to it!

Violet…oh, I agree. And, besides…the summer months aren’t even here yet…lol. Just saying.

Have a good one.

Thats great some other lame azz character I dont care about and can FF through!

You know, Timmm, I’m not normally prescient about soap plots, but I saw this one coming weeks ago, didn’t you? When Devon started mentioning Moses, you could practically see a Central Casting Alert flash on the screen. Ugh! And is Moses meant for Faith? Isn’t she a little young, and immature, for dating?

Soaphound, it never fails, when they start talking about a character you havent seen for awhile, they magically appear! How about someone we care about! And yes, I’m sure Moses will be attached to the Faith storyline. [Excuse me while I puke!]

Exactly, Timmm! And I got a big kick out of your statement: “Excuse me while I puke!” 🙂

Josh Griffith’s writing has no cohesion and or makes no sense. No vision. Not character-driven. Just a bunch of strung -together, boring-as -all get-out conversations. Aged-Moses could be a good story in a capable head writer’s hands. More story potential for Griffith to ruin. When is he getting his pink slip?

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
