    S01.E19: Chapter Nineteen: The Mandrake

    The mandrake plot was a rip-off of the Donald Sutherland version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, right down to the screaming and pointing.

    So the show is really trying to go with the narrative that 50 year old Leo is John’s son. It’s like Days can’t stop framing itself as a joke.

    S05.E10: Don't Go Dark on Me

    It’s because the actor isn’t good. He’s good at his narrow role, being a hot body but, the skills aren’t there. Unfortunately his limitations become glaringly clear when he has storylines. His scenes with Viola and Glen Truman being among the examples. I personally hope this storyline gives us Nate’s exit from the show as the character always seems to suck the energy out of the room. So the show is going to reveal Miller to be a problem that would have required dealing with, but not necessarily a party to the murder of Nate’s father. While it looks like the show is putting the possibility of an Annalise and Eve relationship to bed, this is the pairing I like best for Annalise.

    S02.E12: Aftermath

    Wow. I’m sure the diverse writing staff the clearly does not have exist on this show thought it would be wonderful to insert the awful, entitled white girl into their “black storyline.” This crap hit all the check marks of insulting, racist, patriarchy: 1) Privileged white girl forces herself on black woman because it’s her right; 2) White girl makes black girl forced to endure her presence miserable and plays the victim, the only thing the scene missed was the tears; 3) White girl forces her presence in a family matter she has no right to be a part of, because, of course, it’s her right; 4) Black girl learns her lesson to defer to whiteness because white interloper was “there for her” and they are on their way to being best buds. Yeah. The absolute worst.

    Is Tyler Christopher still on the show? I remember reading a while back that he was being temporarily replaced. Have those episodes aired yet? Wondering because I see some potential for him to be paired with Gabi.

    True, SH came back for their wedding, but that was more because she likes MBE and SN than it was about her needing the show. Sadly, I’d be worried about who they would cast given the winning bunch they have brought on board recently.

    Joey (the only Brady or Horton who has been allowed to spend more than five minutes in jail) and Stephanie. The fact that you don’t even know who her kids are speaks volumes.

    So today’s episode convinced me that Kayla’s next storyline will be the reveal that she is sniffing something from the hospital pharmacy because on what planet does she think someone trying to talk to Rve like a human being and show actual concern for the poison she is putting into the atmosphere and her own existence would matter to a venomous, hateful, vindictive *itch like Eve. Also, I would love if Kayla were allowed to play mother to her own children rather than the children of her rapist and the pitiful progeny of other characters (in case you ahvenet guessed, I don’t like Sarah or the actress who plays her, just another of the one-note, forgettable actors Days keeps bringing to our screens.). By the way, how much older is Greg Vaughn than that actress because I’m guessing at least fifteen to twenty years, not a good look show. Is it just me, or does Missy look and carry herself as if she is twenty years younger when she is acting opposite Matt?

    Thank for commenting on how abusive and intimidating Brady is, both physically and verbally. The portrayal of this character is off in a disturbing way. I really don’t like Brady as currently portrayed because I can so easily envision him crossing the line. Abby continues to be obnoxious. There is absolutely nothing likable about the character. The family dinner really served to illustrate this. Her hostility towards the people who have done nothing but coddle and enable her narcissism is actually the reward they deserve for creating that monster. If I were Jack, I’d go back to Chad and demand my payment be increased to 100,000. Th person I felt sorry for at the dinner was JJ. He seemed so hurt that Jack required money to spend time with them. The best moment for me was Jack pointing out that neither Abigail nor JJ look like him. I like to think he was secretly hoping that Jennifer would tel him Abby was an ex’s offspring.

    Julie and Victor would have been the more interesting pairing. It also would have given us more of the amazing SSH. Like, love, hate , or feel ambivalent about the character, you cannot deny the woman’s talent. Doug’s death could have been the catalyst for the return of the old Julie. This would have kept SSH on canvass as it seems that Bill is the one who doesn’t want to be tied to the show long term. It also could have allowed an exploration of Julie’s racism, which based on my recollections of the comments on the board were only touched in a cursory manner when the Eli reveal came., and the role it plays in her dislike of Gabi. I still think the show made a mistake killing David. Let Julie’s ish really come back on her in the form of her son who never forgave her for her schemes. It also could have been an interesting way to explore subtle racism - Julie and Eli challenging David on how hard he did or did not fight for the relationship once things got hard and his reasons why. But alas, this is Days and it only sees its black characters as the friend of, or the duo in the chemistry free relationship based solely in their shared racial background.

    The scenes with Kayla and Jack were fantastic. It makes the current Steve being off screen nonsense that much harder to sell. I agree with the poster who said that Jack seemed okay with seeing Kayla because she didn’t approach him and she didn’t try to hit him over the head with “Remember Me.” Their interaction was on Jack’s terms and even with Eve, this is the first time since becoming aware as it were that an encounter with someone who knew him was dictated by him. Watching Jack with Eve today, all I could think was, “Don’t you put your filthy, Brady touching hands on my Jack.” I was so thrilled when the memory of the Jennifer kiss caused him to pull away from the red dressed viper. This means MR and the show are doing a good job at softening my coldness towards the character. I really want Jack and JJ scenes. If I’m not mistaken, CM was cast after MA was fired the last time. I liked their brief interaction during Jack’s return and I would like to see more.

    Oh I agree as a Kayla fan. I will fight for my girl but some of the ish done with her character is indefensible. The Shane thing, the Kim thing, the Carly thing. Kayla was decimated under the new show running concept that the supercouples were trash and that there could be no character who could and should just be a good person. Even at her sweetest, Kayla was tough as nails and could fight dirty when she had to, the character didn’t need to be ruined. Strangely, Kayla especially suffered in the new anti-supercouple era. The show wanted to crush the super couple concept, yet it didn’t truly want Kayla to evolve beyond Steve. She got stuck in and remains in this limbo. Yes, the fact that the show frequently acts as if characters who were once super close be it through blood or friendship now not only have no connection but actively can’t stand one another for no reason plays a huge role in driving fans like me away. Days was the show of families, characters and connections and it got morphed into the show of convenient plot lines. IMHO, it has not and mostl likely will not recover from this because Corday is the ultimate source of the breakdown of the show.
