Alamainia Hath No Fury Like Carly Manning Scorned on DAYS!





I half expect my DVR to stop working any second. I keep rewinding the blink-and-you'll-miss-it ending to Friday's Days of Our Lives over and over again. CARLY'S (Crystal Chappell) BACK BITCHES!!! And not only that, but she's a MURDERESS, and this time for real. Auntie Viv (Louise Sorel) ain't framing her by offing elderly patients at University!

Okay, okay, sure I had read the spoilers and knew Carly would kill Lawrence (Chappell's real life hubby Michael Sabatino), but nothing could have prepared me for actually seeing the once noble Katerina Von Leuschner carving the baddie like a Thanksgiving Turkey! I remember Larry being  a mofo—he raped Carly's BFF Jennifer Rose (Melissa Reeves) and "killed" Patch Johnson (Stephen Nichols)— but hell, I thought Carly's love changed him?

 I cannot wait to find out what Lawrence has done between 1993 and now to cause the striking beauty to turn him into a human shish kabob! I also have to admit I am about to make a mess in my undergarments over the very THOUGHT of Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) seeing his "princess" again for the first time in 16 years, and I am a HUGE Bo and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) fan! Dilemma, dilemma, which smoldering brunette, chronic eyebrow raiser do I root for????? 

DAYS has got to cast Sailor Man (aka Shawn Douglas), Belle and Nicky Alamain! Put them in a triangle. Since they did the rewrite making John and Larry not brothers, it's okay for Nicky to become obsessed with his boyhood rival's wife, the same way his father was obsessed with Bo's fiance.

Martha Madison is available to reprise Belle, Greg Vaughan would make a good Nicky (but an even better Shawn, although I wish DAYS would rescue Jason Cook from storyline Siberia on General Hospital!), and it would be a wet dream to see DAYS snag Tom Pelphrey as Nicky after he wraps his silly stint on As The World Turns. While they're at it, bring back Jack and Jenn's daughter Abby as a reporter investigating the Alamain murder and throw her into the quad! Two words: Marcy Rylan! DAYS would then have a hot twentysomething quartet tied to the Bo/Carly/Lawrence/Jennifer/Jack legacy. Okay, enough Saturday morning quarterbacking, this is gonna be good. Welcome back Crystal and Michael!

The scene came out of nowhere. It didn't tie into anything else that happened yesterday. For a second I wondered if I got the date wrong. I knew she wouldn't be seen until the very end but I thought there would be some hint during the episode that would indicate we'd see Carly.

I didn't watch it b/c I knew she wasn't going 2 really b seen until Monay or Tuesday @ the latest. But hey Days always knew how to end on a Friday w/a good cliff-hanger. Crazy

I love the look on her face. She's got fire in them eyes!
It's funny how that scene jumped out of nowhere. I didn't even expect it, and I, of course, knew that she would be on starting October 2. Michael Sabatino has aged so much. I like the disheveled hair. This storyline will actually be worth watching, right along with Nicole's life unraveling. Days is actually worth watching again!

Whoot! it's finally here! Well, I guess Carly isn't a goody-goody anymore, which is fine by me. Hmm...Lawrence dead? Is anyone really dead on DOOL?
Carly looks all bad-ass! Aunt Vivian will NOT be pleased!

Greg Vaughn as Nicky? Greg is 36! Now that would be some inappropriate chemistry between mom and son!

I'm not sure the age that Victor Webster actually looks, but he's the exact same age as Greg Vaughn, so it could work. In my opinion.

Greg Vaughn would be my pic for a nice sweet i'm a doctor like my momma Nikki or I'm a protector like my daddy Shawn D. Oh the fanfic is already being written in my head thanks a lot Jamey! Wink

Poofer48 I was thinking more a long the lines of Arianna and Carly ha ha

Carly, Hope, and Bo would be good to watch without their off screen children. If the kids are recast, those three would end up on the back burner.

I think Nikki would be retconned back to his original age, thus making him in his early 20s. No way could CC have a mid-30s son unless he was born when she was in tween years.

this actress is so over exposed, that i am not interested in her storyline on Days. I would rather watch EJ, Nicole, Sami, Stefano, etc than watch this bull crap that's coming. I will fast forward through the bull crap that's coming.

I agree joss. They would have to desoras Nikki if they are bringing him back.

If they want to bring back Nikki, Erik von Detten is available.

Carly may be the only reason for me to watch Days. For a time, she was my favourite character on Days.

If Days wants her to connect with viewers who started watching after October 1993, they are going to need to whip out the flashbacks.

Went and watched on You Tube and will go with Jamey that it was a great way to start the return of Carly. But she wasn't one of those characters that would make me watch every day. Although if they brought back Martha Madison as Belle and either Jason Cook or Greg Vaughn as Shawn, I would probably turn back to days.

If they're going to bring back anyone from the past, their priority should be Marlena and John.

It may just be my opinion, but I think DAYS has the best storytelling. I watch 5 of the 7 soaps and no one does (or has done it) better than DAYS. Y&R is good, OLTL is ok, AMC is trying way too hard, B&B is fun. But DAYS has that intertwined, in-depth, take-you-down-a-new-path type of storytelling that just kills it for me. They did it with Arianna. They did it with Kate. They did it with Sami. I just know Carly is going to be great. I can actually say that I'm proud to watch my DAYS. It's just my favorite.

Gotta go with Met on this one! This is almost tiring watching all the P.R. going on with her return! Crystal's is not the all to end all for some of us! You want me to get excited about Days again! Bring back Deidre, Drake, Stephen and Marybeth! Then I will be jumping up and down for joy and doing the happy dance! Smile Plus for gosh sake, stop sticking other people into Bo & Hope's marriage! Angry There are soooo many other stories that Bo & Hope could have been given! I still think the return of JT would be a fantastic story for this couple since it's obvious that adventure storylines are out! JMO

CC is all that. She's a great actress. Never cared about Marlena & John to continue watching Days. After Carly left so did I. Now am back. Wouldn't mind if Jennifer & Jack came back.

the ratings will tell if CC's return is all but bull crap.
Will Days reach 3.0 or will it still be where it is? As far as I am concern, I dont think DOOL should be wasting money on the PR for CC's return when she is only just another regular soap actress. Let her try to get something in Prime-time, then maybe she will be classified as not just another mediocre soap actress in my opinion.

I LOVE John and Marlena, Patch and Kayla, but they can't afford to bring them back. Crystal Chappell and Wally Kurth work for cheap, and Crystal has a ton of fans from GL. I ripped DAYS to shreds for getting rid of their vets, but this was one of the smartest power plays in soap history. Gary Tomlin paid attention to the insane buzz Otalia received and he offered Crystal her old job back, making a fraction of what other DAYS diva make. Sounds like good business sense to me.

DAYS has been on fire for the last 2 weeks, with CC back now I expect it to be get even hotter!

met - I really don't understand where you're getting the idea that DAYS/NBC is spending so much money on promoting CC's return. I've only seen the one promo with PR and KA and the short interviews on the NBC site. It's no like they're running promos in primetime or taking out ads in Variety. It's been a pretty low key return so far. CC has been getting a lot of press, mostly about her webseries Venice, which is just free promotion for Days. I do understand if your sick of seeing CC everywhere, but the press is good for Days.

As a Guiding Light fan who is following CC to Days, I'm just happy to see her with good indoor lighting, wardrobe and a set larger than my bedroom. Wink

So if the ratings don't move to the extreme that some of these critics predict, what then! Don't get me wrong. I like Crystal. However, I feel that Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell, deserve just as much acclaim for their work on this show through their dramatic storylines, than they are getting! The feeling that once Crystal arrives, the show is going to have the only acclaimed actress that this show has been a little upsetting for some of fans that feel although, they have not lately been given the best material by these writers! They are still deserving of alittle more respect than they've been given! Angry Now we have to endure another replay of the Bo's former love returning! Sick I wonder how long before another love child of their's shows up! Tired

Honestly from what I see Days did not do a big media push to promote Carly's return. All we really got was the short promo that wasn't all that good. The press and buzz have come from the end of GL and her new webseries Venice. And in my opinion all the buzz is well deserved and will benifit Days in the long run.

I am a viewer that is coming to Days simply because of Crystal Chappell. (And I am not included in the ratings.) I feel for the long time fans because I know how much it sucks when a shows vets are pushed aside. I know however that Crystal will bring a lot to this show. I also believe that the addition will bring some excitement to Bo and Hope as well. They will be used more. That should make long time fans happy. I would hate to see fan wars break out over this.

I agree angelkitty I havent seen that much media push except for the bloggers online and the promos. I don't get why people think Crystal is making bank she's coming from GL a show that in the last year had no sets and she's over 40 (stupid I know but you know how they favor the young now) would I love to see John and Marlena you bet but the truth is Crystal and Wally were cheaper and about this whole mediocre soap actress thing talk about a soap snob just because an actor is on primetime or in movies doesnt make them great would you say that an actor from the CW is better than every soap actor because there on at night nope is Miley Cyrus better than Crystal Chappell because she has her own show and in some movies heck no. I guess people are just worried about Bo and Hope splitting up but my goodness its better than them being a happy couple on the backburner this way at least there not on the chopping block.

Forgot to add that I'm a former GL viewer as well and nope not counted in the ratings but I did watch before when Carly was on I did like her more with Lawrence but I guess that didn't turn out well. I do hate it when characters are pushed aside for new people but for longterm viewers Carly isn't new she's a returning character with a different storyline she's not just here for Bo as a matter of fact according to spoilers she doesn't even think about Bo until she's half way to Salem.

After GL was cancelled I’m trying out Days and OLTL and I’m noticing some hate coming from some Days fans…is a shame how some of you are welcoming Crystal, especially since she was part of this soap many years ago.
