HomeTVDays of Our LivesChad and Abigail Get an Eyeful on Days of Our Lives Luke Kerr April 5, 2013 Days of Our Lives, TV Recap 16 Comments Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) shredded, and by shredded I mean like artisan cheddar on a five star chef’s shredder, Daniel’s (Shawn Christian) heart when she ended things with him in front of the entire hospital. I have to say; if Jennifer were that badass more often, she’d be a much more entertaining character to watch. Of course, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) was lurking nearby and watched the whole scene happen. She followed Daniel when he left the hospital. Jennifer returned home, but it wasn’t long before busybody Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) dropped by to give her an earful about what she’d done to Daniel. Meanwhile, all kinds of drama was going down at the DiMera mansion. Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) was furious when he found out about Sami (Alison Sweeney) moving into the DiMera lair, and threatened to get full custody of their daughter. Sami was forced to explain why she’d moved in, and how it was all a part of her and EJ’s (James Scott) plan to help Will (Chandler Massey). Lucas finally backed down and left, which gave Sami time to prepare a special meal for EJ. Of course the moment EJ saw what Sami had prepared, he wanted to know what she’d done. Sami tried to dance around the topic, but he got it out of her after kissing her on the neck. Needless to say, EJ was not happy to learn Sami had spilled the beans to Lucas. He warned if Stefano (Joseph Mascolo) found out the truth, he’d be furious about their scheme. Nick (Blake Berris) and Vargas (Sean Douglas) argued, but considering how much arguing Nick has been doing lately, it wasn’t really all that interesting. On the flip side, the ever interesting Abby (Kate Mansi) and Chad (Casey Deidrick) tried to get to the bottom of what Cameron (Nathan Owens) was hiding. They spied on Cameron, and followed him around town. The duo eventually ended up at a ladies club, but Cameron was nowhere to be found. Will they see him, or did they miss him stripping. We’ll find out on Friday. Abby and Chad’s scenes were fun, and made me wish I could see more. Though, I’m not entirely sure why, especially since I wasn’t a big fan of them the first time around. 16 Responses jaedahbee April 6, 2013 Here’s how I would write for Days: John/Marlena/Roman: John continues to push Marlena away and she finds solice in the arms of ex-hubby Roman (Wayne Northrop). Marlena goes to speak with John and he tears into her and tells her they’re done. Doc runs crying to Roman. John moves out of the apartment. Marlena soon realizes someone is stalking her and she tells John who thinks it’s a ploy just to get him to move back in. She then tells Roman who decides to move in to protect her like back when they first met. Will this bring Roman and Doc back together? Kristen/Brady: They’re wedding day approaches and Kristen is not too sure if she can still hurt Brady as she has fallen in love with him. Brady seems very ecstatic to make Kristen his wife but little does Kristen knows Brady also has a trick or two up his sleeve. Will Brady turn the tables on Kristen? Stefano/Kate/Rafe: Stefano finds out who his Katherine is bedding and becomes very upset and says they both will pay. Kate is called away on business but she doesn’t leave without making love to Rafe. Once Kate leaves, Lucas receives a call that his mom’s plane has disappeared from the radar system. While everyone mourns the presumed death of Kate and blame Stefano, she wakes up in a cell. As she yells and screams for help a mysterious man walks in revealed to be Kate’s presumed dead ex husband Curtis Reed! Hope: She gets a call that Bo fell off his boat during a storm and drowned. Since Hope is mourning Bo’s “death” and Rafe is mourning Kate’s “death”. Will sparks fly between these two? Also, Hope reopens the Franco Kelly murder case when she spots a man looking exactly like her old flame. Hope also receives news that Patrick Lockhart was killed in prison. With all these things going on Hope starts experiencing chest pains and Rafe becomes her life saver. Ej/Sami: Ej and Sami are happily in love……. For now. Ej’s ex fiancee during his time away from Salem comes to town and decides she wants Ej back. When she and Sami come face to face Sami realizes it’s her former best friend Jamie from high school! Does Jamie decide to back down? Not so fast! She schemes with an unknown man to tear Ej and Sami apart. The man has a past with Sami and it’s not Lucas? Could it be Sami’s rapist Alan? Jennifer/Daniel/Chloe/Ann/Nancy: This story comes to a climax as Chloe starts to lose her grip on reality and tries to murder Jennifer by setting the Horton cabin on fire. Daniel who was on his way to Jen runs in to rescue her and brings her outside. Chloe comes up and pulls out a gun and expresses her undying love to Daniel but says if she cant have him Jen won’t either. As she’s about to shoot Abby runs up and distracts her and Daniel tries grabbing the gun and he and Chloe tumble over the cliff. Jen comes to and Abby says Daniel and Chloe went over the cliff. Ann and Nancy come to the scene and are arrested for being accomplices in Chloe’s scheme. Nancy promises she’ll make Jen pay for her daughter’s death. Jennifer mourns Daniel and starts to wonder why she keeps losing men. Nicole/Eric/Greta: Nicole feels she has a little competition in Princess Greta Von Amberg where Eric is concerned. Greta is back because she found proof that John Black is her father. Will/Sonny/Nick/Gabi: Nick is horrified when he sees his prison tormentor is in Salem and wants him. Nick is now afraid for his life and goes to talk to Hope. Will puts a gun in his bookbag, Sami puts one in her purse, Lucas puts one in his coat, Sonny is seen with a gun, Ej grabs a gun and Nick’s prison buddy has one. Gabi finds out what Nick has over will and goes looking for him to confront him. As she walks through the park she sees Nick’s lifeless body lying in the grass. Who killed Nick? Victor/Maggie: Victor and Maggie go on a trip to Greece when Victor gets a mysterious call. As the mysterious man hangs up he utters the words “He’s on his way” to a woman with her back turned. As the woman turns around she shares a striking resemblance to Isabella Toscano. Is Isabella alive? Is this a twin? Or a evil look-a-like? Stefano: As Stefano is arrested for Kate’s presumed death, he gets a shocking visitor: PETER BLAKE! Is Peter back for his father? Kristen? Or Jen? Stay tuned! Abe/Kayla: Abe and Kayla’s bond grows stronger just as Patch comes back to town. Abby: She finds out what Gabi did to Melanie and she goes to confront Gabi at the hospital and Gabi who is mourning Nick’s death says they’ll discuss it another time. As Gabi walks away Abby grabs her arms and Gabi snatches away and tumbles down the stairs at Sonny’s feet. Will Sonny say what he saw?

Jen is being portrayed as a helpless victim and Daniel kissing Chloe is repulsive. Such a sorry story! Log in to Reply tmac April 6, 2013 I’m all for a Peter Blake return. Jason Brooks is still one yummy guy! But if they wanted to play that beat he should have been Nick’s tormentor in prison. And I could see a Peter/Hope pairing. Log in to Reply harlee490 April 6, 2013 I thought yesterday’s episode was very good compared to M-W’s episodes. That man stripping is wet dream! >) I loved the reaction. I just can’t root for Jennifer but I don’t have the history with the character as many and don’t want to sound offensive but MR sucks in the acting department. :(( As for Shawn C., I don’t think he’s a bad actor because he was great as “Mike” Kasnoff” had chemistry with Yvonne Perry & Maura West…(psst my favorite to be honest was Mark Collier) Shawn is HOT man and could be a great leading man but it’s how the writers are writing “Dannifer”…horribly! I think Daniel and Hope hookup can be interesting to see if maybe they could be paired and create some drama btw Hope & Jennifer not Chloe…she’s getting on my nerves! That would put Maggie smack in the middle bwt both women… I loved the scenes btw Nicole & Eric yesterday, but we need Vargas to be rocking Nicole’s world between the sheets and giving Nicole what is missing from her life SEX! Could make Eric very jealous and start examining about leaving the church to pursue Nicole :p As for the post #1 sounds good but way to many return from the dead and doppelganger stories for my taste…I’m so tired of all soaps just rehashing & repeating those type stories. I’m burnt out on those type of stories because there isn’t anything exciting or fresh, it’s the same thing all the time…be creative and can’t the writers could come up with new stories to weave into canvas? I guess not, oh well just answered my own question. Just my opinion. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon April 6, 2013 Harlee, you know I loved ATWT even more than I do Y&R, which is why I’m forever trying to find jobs for the actors. And that’s also why I hesitated for a long time before criticizing Shawn Christian. He made a terrific Mike Kasnoff; but as Dr. Daniel Jonas he’s like a mannequin. Angry, annoyed, happy, sad, worried, suspicious: Shawn wears the exact same expression on his face. I get the impression that even he doesn’t care about this character. I also think Kelly Menighan Hensley would make a great Jennifer re-cast. She’s an actress with the fire that could inspire the writers to stop writing Jennifer as a long-suffering victim. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 April 6, 2013 I think Nathan Owens is the hottest guy in daytime!! And these scenes were a welcome distraction from Chicken Little Horton and her bitching/whining/complaining………and this horrid Narcolepsy Dr. Daniel/Chicken Little/Chloebot triangle!!! Log in to Reply harlee490 April 6, 2013 SoapA…We have a winner for Jennifer, excellent choice. Yea, I think it’s the writing and possibly the direction or maybe Shawn is tired of being paired w\Jennifer because they have to know fans aren’t happy with this pairing. Lets be serious he has been paired with some real BLEH actresses…(being nice). Gosh he and Maura & Yvonne it worked and had chemistry with both….sign I miss ATWT. I wish Days hired Tamura FT as new character who is judge in Salem and create a new A-A family and give Abe a story!! Log in to Reply Yoryla April 7, 2013 Omg I just saw Thursday’s episode and it was SO boringgg! YAWN!!! I nearly FF’d through the whole thing. Actually, the only few minutes I watched were the Vargas/Nick scenes, which they didn’t make much sense yet either. This story better go down the road of Nick being Vargas’ prison-wife. Otherwise this storyline will make absolutely no sense. There is not one plausible reason yet for Nick’s homophobia. And all the rest, omg Lucas is such a stupid, unnecessary log. I know that is probably an unpopular opinion since many seem to love him. But I just find him so boring and useless! Well, I have yet to see Friday’s epi and I know it will be better because Kristen was on. But they have now even made HER prop Dannifer! It doesn’t bother me so much with Kristen since she could be reading the phone book and I would still listen and agree with her. But still, lol! Log in to Reply angrierblackerman April 8, 2013 For the life of me, I can’t understand how people can say Shawn Christian is a good actor. He is a HORRIBLE actor. He does the same old hand wringing and woeful head shaking in every damn scene. His facial expressions never change! GET THIS GUY OFF MY SOAP NOW! Put him on MYNetwork movies or as a generic beach dude in some Netflix movie. He doesn’t belong on a show that claims it doesn’t have enough to keep PETER RECKELL, yet is hiring extras and day players left and right. Do you really need 40 people to walk around town carrying empty coffee cups?! That Daniel Jonas has been in more episodes than Marlena, Kate, John, and Stefano combined this year is nothing short of tragic. Kill off Daniel, and I would even kill Jennifer at this point, because her character is just FUBAR right now. Log in to Reply MotownKate4Soaps April 8, 2013 I still wish Chad and Abigail would hook up. They look more compatible together than this Cameron dude. Liked the original actor who played him and don’t know why they recast him so quick. I find it funny how fast C & A tracked Cameron down. What, everything’s by the Town Square? From the hospital, to everyone’s homes, to the coffee shop, and Brady Pub and now this male strip club? There’s only one of those to my knowledge in a multi-county radius by me. I may be one of the odd ones but cannot stand Chloe as much as I like Nadia Bjorlin, especially during the one-season show “Dirty Soap”. I like Patrika Darbo and Nancy but wish Craig were to come in to stop his woman and girl from being so conniving. Chloe just doesn’t have as many ties to the community like Horton Jennifer does. I hope Chloe goes away and Jennifer stays. But with Melissa’s hubby being out of an acting job and touring the country doing concerts, perhaps she may decide to travel with him in the end. Then, can we please get Peter Reckell’s Bo back? WTF is happening with Hope? Log in to Reply harlee490 April 8, 2013 Watching live Monday’s episode…love me my Nicole …talking about Vargas w\Abe Abe “Vargas did 10 hard long years in prison” Nicole “Where was I? At the country club” :love: :love: :beer: Log in to Reply harlee490 April 8, 2013 Gawd WHY do we have to Jennifer & Chloe, Daniel today….the rest so far has been great Kristen getting caught >) Nicole & Vargas and he’s stirring up trouble with EJ…loving it! >) Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon April 9, 2013 Vargas did not rape Nick. I think that’s fairly obvious by now. What seems a far more likely scenario is that Nick, being “fresh meat”, was targetted for rape and Vargas gave him protection in exchange for Nick’s help with some kind of scheme to make money. Log in to Reply david46208 April 9, 2013 @SoapArmageddon: Could Nick make a good prison wife? Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon April 9, 2013 That boy would be on his knees until his caps wore out, David. Log in to Reply ChrisGa April 9, 2013 Well, this would’ve been another solid week of DAYS had Dannifer not eaten the show alive. That entire storyline is one lazy contrivance after another; not only does it represent the absolute worst in by-the-numbers soap writing, but it involves two characters that the majority of viewers don’t seem to give a damn about. And while I agree with Harlee that Shawn Christian is a fairly decent actor, the mopey hangdog routine–not to mention all the head-shaking and eye-squinting–hasn’t done him any favors(and nice shout-out to the gorgeous and talented Mark Collier–can’t someone find this hunk something to do other than Breathe Rite commercials? Talk about sex on a stick….). Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
