Lori’s Last Word on Days of our Lives!


A look back at this week’s Days!

The week started out with Daniel writhing around during a dream of Chloe. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a character actually having a wet dream and I never care to again! That scene made me hate them even more.

So aside from the ridiculous plan of Philip sneaking into the morgue via body bag to rescue Stephanie, my only problem with this storyline is Owen. Which I guess is a big thing since he is the main villain in it right now, but I can’t tell if he is crazy or just simple. I’m just not getting a firm grasp on where he’s coming from and I don’t really like him. Although, after the scene where his father freaked out over the instructions regarding Philip’s ‘corpse’ I think maybe their ‘simpleness’ is genetic. I like that the story is bringing a lot of characters together and I love that Brady is the voice of reason and is also helping out, but can Stephanie please get out of that drawer already?

One of the best things about the storyline is Victor. He is so great at being vicious and it really has been too long since he’s been able to unleash the full force of it. Even his comments to Chloe, who has no part in the DiMera/Kiriakis feud, are great. I was also glad that Victor confronted Bo on his contempt for him as a father. That issue goes largely untouched upon and it was a nice added moment.

As for the DiMera side of the feud, this is the kind of couple EJ and Nicole should be: united and on the same page. I’m so glad she knew what was going on with his involvement in kidnapping Stephanie and supported him. It’s much more fun than him yelling and threatening her and her crying all the time. They are cut from the same morally skewed cloth and this is how the couple should continue to be written.

I am definitely a Sami and Rafe fan, but come on, they just started dating and he’s already going to adopt her baby? I’m totally on Caroline and Arianna’s side of this issue. How about they date for a while, actually say they love each other and then pretend to be a family? Just a thought.

I did love Sami’s reaction to Rafe telling Nicole about him adopting Grace though: “Are you going to update your Facebook status now?” Funny stuff.

That’s really all I got for this week. I am enjoying what’s happening on almost every front, so there’s not a whole lot to rant about this week. I’ll be back in two weeks with more thoughts on Days, but until then, check out Matt’s Musings next Friday.

    Thank you Lori, I also agree that Dan and Chloe are disgusting. His little “dream” was so over the top and not my idea of what romance should be.

  2. From kelligapeach

    Thanks Lori! I love your update! I so follow what your saying about Daniel and his dream- YUCK! Same goes for Danloe, after this dream it just ups the cheesy and sleazy factor for me…not what I want from my soap! Hopefully they will end, Please! Its just horrible that Days has ruined 4 characters for some cheap sex but I’m rooting for Kate to go kick some you know what and kick it good! As much as I loved Broe and Phloe from the past, Chloe cheated and she deserves a bit of what is coming to her- she was wrong and now she needs to own up to her mess. Daniel, well, he had no right to jump into bed with an engaged women…makes him come off as a frat boy and not a man- well, after all this he’s not a man! He couldn’t stand up to Victor, he had to leave the room! Bo and Brady dished it right back to Victor this week and weren’t afraid to back down, so Kudos to Brady and Bo…My 2 favorite men of Salem!!! And Victor, you keep preaching the truth to Dan, not that it will help but I sure enjoy it! lol.!!!!!

    I enjoy Safe but I think its also too soon for Rafe to adopt Grace. I kind of like Arianna, hey…I’m just in aw of her and how she could talk about what was in Bradys pants (his wallet, right?) and say it with a straight face! I like Fiesty gals so she’s just doing her part to add Drama to Safe.
    I also love Melanie, just adore her! Keep rocking Molly!!

    Thanks for letting me share my thoughts, I’ll be back to read more from you Lori!! :)

    I agree with you about Dan and Chloe too.They are the most disgusting pairing I have ever seen on Days in over 20 years of watching.That dream just proved what I already thought,that it’s lust not love between them.

  4. From Raymone

    Rafe is a sweet, sweet character and nice with Sami. Having said that, I still think Sami and EJ should be together. They could have been the next Luke and Laura! Plus, I find nothing salvagable with Nicole. She is plain and simply unlikable. Sami and EJ were unbelievable together and I will never understand why the writers didn’tr keep them together. But, if Sami and EJ can’t be together then Rafe is great!

  5. From Kelly Petrill

    Raymone, I so agree about EJ & Sami being together. They were amazing and the whole Santo/Colleen storyline built them up so nicely. Like you, I do not understand why the writers chose to completely sway from this couple and go in a different direction ( aside from the fact that they do have different writers now) As for Rafe and Sami, they are sweet together but have absolutely no chemsitry. All the lovey dovey moments seem so forced, imo. Anyway, maybe Rafe will turn out to be a mean guy and EJ will have to come to Sami’s rescue!

  6. From marty

    Hey,
    Why am I not seeing my last email comments?

  7. From Tabitha

    Oh! I know. DR. Dan bugs the crap out of me. Totally do not like him. Even though Chloe cheated on Lucas, I realyy like them together. They’re such a witty couple and I enjoy their scenes together.

  8. From Patti

    How could you leave out Philip/Melanie? Those two ‘sleuthing’ was the highlight of the week! I hope Philip and Melanie get together soon, and Philip ges away from dull Stephanie.Here’s to PHELANIE!!!

  9. From Nana 0355

    I have to agree with Raymone!! EJ and Sami belong together!!The sparks between them were awesome!!

  10. From Mary from BC

    I’ve been watching this sow since day one and what use to make DOOL’s the great show was the connections the writers were able to make. EJ and Sami had the makings of a super-couple with the Colleen and Santo story line and why that doesn’t seem to linger between them is a mystery. We all loved it during the Marlena/Roman/John days when there was a deeper connection. The writers just can’t seem to capture the essence of these storylines to give the fans what they responded the most to in the past. The writers should sit down and watch those episodes from days gone by so that they can be in touch with the characters, understand the hisotry and write for the viewers. So many of us are 35+ yars loyal to this show.

  11. From Alicia

    I’m not liking the baby switch. It’s been done before with Hope and Lexie. I want Nichole’s a** on a platter. I want her busted. I love Rafe & Sami together. Sami deserves her own baby. Though Grac is adorable.

  12. From missy

    FINALLY SOME MORE EJ AND SAMI FANS, RAFE AND SAMI ARE MORE LIKE FRIENDS NOT LOVERS THE CHEMISTRY DOES SEEM FAKE ESPECIALLY THE FIRST KISS, NO SPARK SEEN. EJ AND SAMI DONT HAVE TO BE MAKING OUT TO SEE THE SPARKS YOU SEE IT JUST WHEN THERE IN THE SAME ROOM, LIKE WHEN THEY SAW EACH OTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME. SPARKS, SPARKS, SPARKS, NO ONE ELSE SEEM TO BE PRESENT IN THE ROOM. SORRY NICHOLE.

  13. From Precious
