The show was awesome today. I know a lot of people don't care for Wilson on here and I understand why some call them boring and that Chandler has been phoning it in but they were marvelous today. I was a weepy mess and I just lost it when Will could not recite his vows and everybody else had to continue them for him. Just so damn good and this is what soaps are all about; they are suuposed to make us feel for these characters and what they are facing.
I just have to say that Lauren as Kate was just a scene stealer at the wedding, I could not take my eyes off of her, she just elevates a scene with her presence. every time she cried, I cried as well. Kate loves Will so much even more than her own children. It is why I cannot totally give up on Kate because Lauren humanizes her so well, even when she has done some despicable acts. This is why the vets are so important to the show, they know their characters so well and act accordingly in a scene that is not about them. Marlena was being strong as always for her baby Will. John should have been there for his doc and his grandson Will. I would love to see Kate mentor Gabi. Perhaps, we can get a story that we did not get with Sami and Kate years ago when they took over the Dimera organization. That portrait of Kammie hanging in the Dimera mansion was so sublime. Another lost potential for greatness that the show missed out on.
I am enjoying the Maggie/Xander friendship. It is so unexpected and organic. I just don't want Maggie to look like a fool after all is said and done.
I just can't get into this Kristen/Nicole mess. It is obvious that Ari is enjoying playing Kristen with a Nicole mask on. I do love her chemistry with Xander. Xander and Nicole should have been a real thing. Xander should have been Alexander Kiriakis. Alex being with a woman that was like his biological mother Anjelica could have been an interesting beat to play in his journey on the show. Not to mention how that would have affected Justin, Adrienne, Victor, Sonny and Anjelica.
