Days of Our Lives is Officially on FIYA Again!


Days of Our Lives is officially must-see soap opera again. The Brian/Sonny/Will/Gabi/Nick drama is the best young adult/teen saga playing out on daytime right now. Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson) is literally screwing over Jarlena (Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall) — and using their dimwitted-yet-hunky son Brady (Eric Martsolf) to do so. (Yes, I know Isabella is the boy's bio mama, but Doc raised him, when she wasn't purring like a horny house cat and/or being kept in a birdcage!)

A strikingly-beautiful and cunning Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) is actually providing root factor for Dannifer (Shawn Christian and Melissa Reeves). Yep, Salem U.S.A is finally a place I look forward to visiting every day. If you need any more proof of just how good DAYS is right now, watch the recap video below from Tuesday's show. 

Johnny to Rafe: "Mommy had something to do!"

She sure did, lil fella. She sure did...


Who Should Sonny be With on Days of Our Lives?

Sonny (Freddie Smith) was crushed by Will’s (Chandler Massey) secret on Days of Our Lives, and now he’s trying mend his broken heart. Of course Brian (Brant Daughtery) was waiting in the wings. Instead of having sex, Sonny told him he needed more time. 

One thing you can say about Brian, unlike Will, he’s never conflicted about what he wants and goes for it.

Wishful Storytelling: Sami's Teen Rapist Alan "Catfishes" Will on Days of Our Lives

With buzz growing about the upcoming versions of All My Children and One Life to Live possibly delving into edgier, ripped-from-the-headlines stories, my brain has been working on overdrive about how the remaining four daytime soaps could also benefit from such a shift in storytelling. Don't get me wrong, I love a good return-from-the-dead as much as the next suds lover, but at some point, when you've seen one — you've seen 738,265 of 'em.

Awhile back on Twitter, I posted how I would love to see Sami's (Alison Sweeney) teen rapist Alan (originally played by Paul Kersey) return to seek his warped brand of revenge on Days of Our Lives. Back in 1995, Lucas' (Bryan Dattilo) pal Alan dated Sami, while secretly pining for her older sister Carrie (Christie Clark). Frustrated by his lack of progress with Carrie, Alan violently raped Sami.

During the rape trial, Sami was branded a liar and Alan was released. It wasn't long before he came after her again — this time with a gun! Sami managed to get the weapon away from Alan—before he could rape her a second time—and shot him in the business!

Distraught, Sami made love with Lucas, conceiving Will. Although no one in Salem knew that fact for quite some time, because Sami passed the baby off as Austin's (Patrick Muldoon). What if Will, devastated after some future bust up with Sonny (Freddie Smith), decides to look for love online? READ MORE

Will Tells Nick He’ll Never Give Up Custody on Days of Our Lives

Will (Chandler Massey) and Gabi (Camila Banus) wanted to talk about the baby, but Nick (Blake Berris) said nothing had changed. He insisted he and Gabi could still raise the child as their own. Nick has become one delusional Salemite!

I never thought I’d see the day where I loathed this character so much. I guess maybe that’s the brilliance of Berris’ acting. When Will called Nick “insane,” Nick told him never to say that again — ever. Uh oh, here we go down Salem’s psycho rabbit hole.


Gabi Better Not Get Between Sami and Her Grandbaby on Days of Our Lives!

Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Rafe (Galen Gering) fought over whether Will (Chandler Massey) or Gabi (Camila Banus) was the one responsible for hiding the truth about Will being the father of her baby. Rafe blamed everything on Will, because he took Gabi to the abortion clinic. I swear, Rafe can be a single-minded, Neanderthal sometimes.

I especially enjoyed the part where Sami told Rafe the pregnancy was about her, because it was her grandchild. Leave it to Sami to make Will’s anguish about her. She threatened Gabi, warning her that she will not keep her grandchild from her. One thing is certain, Gabi will never keep Sami from her grandchild. Did anyone else flash back to Kate (Lauren Koslow) issuing similar warnings to Sami about Will?

Rafe said he saw a another side of Sami—one he didn't like—and didn’t think they could be together. Why does Rafe always seem to give up on Sami so easily? 

After defending Will so vehemently, you could see Sami’s pain at hearing he was with Marlena (Deidre Hall). READ MORE

Sonny Gives Will The Key to His Heart (and His Crib) on Days of Our Lives

Will (Chandler Massey) woke up to breakfast in bed by Sonny (Freddie Smith). Sonny later gave Will a best man’s gift, which turned out to be the key to his home. After Sonny asked Will to move in, Will said he should have given him the key the night before so they could have celebrated all night.

I hope something, or better yet, some man arrives to shake up Sonny and Will soon. They are cute together, but cute is only sustainable for so long.
