John sets stage for DiMera vs. Kiriakis mob war on Days

According to this week’s Soap Opera Weekly, on stands today, newly self-appointed DiMera family head John Black is all set to start a GH-esque turf war with former father-in-law Victor Kiriakis over control of the docks. Marlena has just agreed to council the Greek billionaire and is set to be caught in the middle of a power struggle between John, Victor and Victor’s heir apparent Philip.

I for one couldn’t be more psyched about this storyline! I have wondered why Victor has basically been made a eunich for years and am glad to see Salem‘s other crime family get some play!  

Two things that could make this story even that much better, the return of Wally Kurth as Victor’s favorite nephew Justin Kiriakis and hiring a name actor to resurrect the role of Brady Black. Maybe David Tom (ex-Billy Abbott, Y&R) is available?

    This should be good. I just hope that DAYS does not decide to go all GH mobular on us. Esp now that Tamara Braun is on and her family is in the mob too. They really missed an opportunity when Judi Evans was on as Adrienne, and didn’t have Wally Kurth on. Loved them together.
    We need both of them back (and Judi needs to go blonde again) and with their kids. Have the kids get involved in the Kiriakis family business, maybe even go head to head with Philip for a position. How about Jason Gerhardt as a Kiriakis? Or Scott Clifton as Kiriakis or as Brady or even Eric?
    It would be weird, but Jane Elliott & Wally Kurth went from being lovers to mother and son, so Wally & Kurth could be father and son.

    I wish Judi Evans would have been written as twins-they could have revealed that Bonnie and Adrienne were twins, seperated at birth. Then she could have played dual roles and Justin could come back and be torn between them and if Wally Kurth wasn’t available to play the role, then Tom Eplin!
