Lori’s Last Word on Days of our Lives!
A look at the week of March 16!
Oh my God! Can the fuels project storyline just end already?! Melanie needs to focus on something else instead of trying to play Salem’s major players against each other and get involved in a storyline where we’ll start to like her. And Philip needs to stop acting like such a spoiled brat! Somehow EJ manages to act like the scheming adult businessman that he is while dealing with Melanie and the project. Philip could take a lesson or two from him.
Speaking of Philip, why does Stephanie ‘love’ him? He’s a total jerk who is obsessed with one-upping the DiMeras. He doesn’t show her much affection and even yells and belittles her on occasion. What happened to the saucy racecar driver she used to be? Now she’s trying to help clean up Philip’s messes and making him a snack when he’s upset. I’m over it!
It’s too bad Tony is being written out because I’ve enjoyed Thaao Penghlis’ getting involved in Nicole’s baby mess and even screwing Melanie over for her dreaded fuels project. I wondered why Thaao was nominated for a Daytime Emmy last year because of his lack of screen time, but he is a good actor and plays the smug, powerful DiMera extremely well, they just haven’t really given him much of a chance to do anything lately. Unfortunately instead of utilizing his talent more, they are writing him out. It seems a murder mystery is in the works, as Nicole will want to keep him quiet and I guess his involvement in the fuels project becomes a little too dicey? We’ll find out soon enough.
I like the kid that plays Will and think he has potential, especially since he is so disdainful of his parents lately. I feel bad that his parents aren’t more interested din him now that he’s home. Sami is more concerned about Grace and Lucas is off getting married to Chloe. No wonder he’s upset with them! However, I’m not sensing any chemistry between him and Mia just yet and am not really sure why he’s so interested in her, but they are the only teens on the show, so they have to be together, right? There’s also the soapy entanglement of Sami thinking Mia’s baby is hers and vice versa, so this story has many possibilities. Therefore, I’ll give them time to gel before I officially form my opinion.
Sami is so much better when she’s standing up for herself instead of running to a man every time she has a problem. She’s tough and doesn’t back down against EJ, but then she gets all weepy and goes running to Rafe crying when she needs help. I much prefer the stronger version of this character. I get that she might need some backup and Rafe is really the only one she can turn too, but why does she have to come across as so weak in those scenes?
As for Rafe, we got a few more small nuggets regarding his past courtesy of a nun, but I want more information! To keep him interesting, we need details and maybe even a mystery woman to appear on the scene to complicate things for him. What do you think?
Oh, yeah, Lucas and Chloe also got married and Kate was too late to stop them. I’m bored just writing about it.
So those are my thoughts on Days this week. How about you? Feel free to share your feelings with Soap Opera Fan Blog below.
