Could Hope and Aiden Work With a More Intriguing Storyline on DAYS? (VIDEO)

Salem U.S.A's pot stirrers had a rough week on Days of Our Lives. Rafe (Galen Gering) went pow, right in Nick Fallon's (Blake Berris) kisser; then blamed Kate (Lauren Koslow) for hiring him. While that madness was going on, the rest of the town blamed Theresa Donovan (Jen Lilley) for drugging saintly Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian).

While Theresa is far from innocent, it was actually Liam (Mark Collier) who did the dirty deed. Will Shane (Charles Shaughnessy) and Kim's (Patsy Pease) baby girl go down for a crime she didn't commit?

On the less exciting side of Salem, Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) had more tepid exchanges. I like dimpled dreambot Cosgrove opposite the eternally sexy Alfonso. They definitely share chemistry and potential. However, their storyline needs tons of work.

Enough with planning activities for the Catholic church. Seriously, who in DAYS writers' room thought this would be interesting?

Hope needs to be investigating a criminal, whom Aiden happens to be representing. Chemistry can only take this couple so far — especially when fans have yet to get over Hope being half of one of daytime's most popular supercouples for the better part of three decades.

Don't get me wrong. I am not sitting here holding a candle in the window for Bo Brady's (Peter Reckell) return. Hope must move on. But we Bope fans are going to need more than bake sales and snarking, to go from Oak Alley, The Dragon and "Tonight I Celebrate My Love" to accepting a Hope/Aiden match-up.

Why is DAYS Saddling Red-Hot JJ With a Golly Gee Willikers Teen Snorefest? (VIDEO)

Days of Our Lives has been so good for so long, but storywise, no soap can win 'em all. Take JJ Deveraux's (Casey Moss) current arc for instance. TPTB have taken JJ—just a short while ago the hottest teen on daytime— and stuck him in some lost episode of Leave It To Beaver, where Wally has a crush on Mindy Middlebottom. 

No one wants to see Jack Deveraux, Jr. crushing on some newbie kid bore, after playing with the big boys and girls for most of the year. Why has JJ been removed from fellow troubled youth Theresa Donovan's (Jen Lilley) sexy, tempting orbit?

I get the show is going there with Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Theresa—who definitely make an intriguing pair—but I'd rather watch a triangle featuring a drunken, coke-addicted publisher, the hot mess daughter of an international spy and the brooding son of a redeemed rapist, than what JJ currently has going on. On what planet should both Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Abigail (Kate Mansi) be getting hotter action than JJ?

The Talented Mister Moss has a body built for sin — not standing around playing phone tag and/or sharing malts with Kelly Kapowski. Watch the DAYS recap video below and see if you agree! READ MORE
