Hi, first time poster to this forum. I watched Days back during its heyday in the 80's through the mid-90's. I stopped around the time of Marlena's possession. I got sucked back in during the "Newsalem" plot, and haven't watched since. Until about 2 weeks ago - I saw it on the guide when I turned on the tv. I turned it on out of curiosity and it SUCKED ME BACK IN!!! How does this show do that???
Anyway, I was compelled to post today because when Vivian introduced Steffan, at first I thought it was Lucas standing there scowling. I don't know if it was the camera angle, the expression on his face, or what it was. But I honestly thought that Vivian had gotten Lucas a haircut, dressed him in a suit, and paraded him in front of the party claiming he was Steffano. Or I thought it was going to be another stupid "plastic surgery" storyline where they recast Steffano and would say it was all plastic surgery. So the "secret baby" storyline actually made sense after thinking all that.
I also wanted to comment on Jennifer's hair. I think part of the problem might be that she's going gray, and her gray hairs could very well be resistant to color. I have that kind of gray - color lasts a day or two on my grays. Since I have brown hair and refuse to go gray yet, I "remedy" this by coloring the rest of my hair very light and then toning it. The gray tends to look more like highlights this way, but I'm sure I look like I enjoy having tacky fake blond hair. But at this age (44) plus the fact that I'm trying to start a new career and am concerned about age discrimination, I'd rather people think I have slightly tacky taste than to think I'm going gray. Her hair could probably be helped if the non-gray hair wasn't being colored such a golden blond - the golden tone really makes the gray stick out like a sore thumb.
