A sense of heroism and duty to one's fellow man has returned to Salem U.S.A. on Days of Our Lives. An antihero is risking it all to do what's best for the townsfolk, not to mention the viewers.
No, I'm not talking about Patch's (Stephen Nichols) quest to find Bo (Peter Reckell), or John Black's (Drake Hogestyn) latest ISA assignment. The soap hero I'm praising is the gay or gal going around offing the nonessential characters who've been polluting my DVR all year!
The latest in a long line of DAYS serial killers is giving the show back its life. First the unknown assailant killed pesky, elephant-obsessed medical journalist and bad drunk Serena Mason (Melissa Archer). Now the killer's blood lust has resulted in the demise of coed wet blanket Paige Larson (True O'Brien). Praise Soap Jesus.
Even if No.1 suspect Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) is innocent, he should take credit. He'd be so popular, he'd beat Abe (James Reynolds) in the next mayoral race!
Cub DEA agent JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) and his chest hair were being wasted on Paige — who essentially ran around town being a pill in Mayim Bialik's old Blossom wardrobe. I cannot wait to see who this killer takes out next. I'm crossing my fingers and toes it's a father/son duo from the mountains.
