Just caught up over the last couple of days, and have to agree that there have been some strong & emotional scenes with many cast members. Being a Deidre Hall fan, I thought her Marlena scenes were so well done, her caring & soothing of Claire was just what was needed....I really wish Claire's parents & Grandparents had been involved in this storyline sooner. ORK was just terrific & the look of terror in Ciara's eyes was intense....I was in tears over the 2 young women who loved each other & the complete un-raveling of Claire. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I liked the emotional scene between Kayla & Tripp & how he too had been 'unraveled" but Kayla had always been kind & "Motherly" to him. Sarah wearing the diamond necklace was just dumb, I agree with Rex, she should have just told Xander "No Thanks". Ted chomping down on his sandwich & annoying Kate was making me chuckle. The past couple of days had me interested & not reaching for the remote to FF.
