Again, Eileen’s presence alone makes Stacy look so bad. But I’m glad that she came back, even if just a short time.
Overall, it seems like it will be an interesting week. As long as Abigail and Chad are back burned for a while. I’m fine with that. I love Billy Flynn as Chad but Marci Miller really drags them down. I just don’t understand why Kate Mansi won’t return full time? Is she on a different show? I haven’t seen her in anything else. I’d love for JJ to return as well. But I guess there’s already too many cast members already.
I feel like Kate's reason for not wanting to be on Days FT is because the pace of filming was too exhausting??? I can't remember. I also think she is not living in LA anymore but I could be wrong.
I agree MM is such a drag, like a wet noodle just weighing everything down. Her voice is sooooooooo dull. Chad/Billy is so vibrant - and bless him he can make chemistry with anything I just love him so much. I really am not fan of her in the role.
It's so great seeing Eileen back as Kristen. SO. MUCH. BETTER!
So, I guess the cat’s out of the bag this week! Eileen was so much fun to watch. I just wish there would have been more flashback scenes. She was so awesome in her few scenes on Monday.
I loved the scenes between Xander and Maggie. They were so heartfelt. I’d really like to see better things for his character. He’s so great in his role and he really has made audiences root for him. Considering he was just a mercenary killer when he was first on the show, he’s come a long way.
I was also happy to see Kate and Roman reunite after all these years. I just wonder how Sami is going to handle it when she returns?
It should be fun watching how all the Abe/Paulina drama will play out. It was just so sad to see only a handful of people attending the wedding. I know the show has a low budget but this was pathetic considering that Abe is one of the most longtime characters on the show.
Lastly, it really bugs me how Mardevil comes off like Hattie Adams. Marlena always speaks so confidently. She’s intelligent and highly educated. You would think that Satan would be very confident and not constantly looking for words.
Why was Steve saying he was going to the wedding but then not there in time? Why wasn't Nicole there? She just finished telling Abe she thought of him like a father! Rafe, Shawn, Belle, Brady, they all should have been there! I feel so bad for Abe having his life blown up like this, maybe it's better less people are there ha ha
Everyone is commenting how much MarDevil sounds like Hattie. I really FF'd most Hattie stuff so I didn't really notice, but I agree she is not acting like Marlena at all, but I guess that's the point. People are supposed to be suspicious of her behaviour.
ED back was great, just great. I wish we got more. She's just so perfect in the role. I loved the flashbacks too!
I am indifferent about Kate and Roman. I think it's good to pair them up, and I like Josh Taylor, but he mumbles so much lol
When is Sami back, I can't wait to find out where she's been! And is Sarah being recast? I guess Xander finds out about her soon. I agree she's great and I enjoyed his scenes with Maggie. He's one of my fave characters.
So I believe that Sami is going to be seen the last week of November. I believe that she calls EJ of all people. I’m looking forward to her returning and hopefully reuniting with Lucas.
I also think that Xander is my favorite character as well. I think it was at least two months ago that they showed the preview of him announcing to Gwen that Sarah has been found. I just think at this point that Xander and Gwen should remain a couple. Especially since Sarah is being recast from what I’ve heard.
Loved your comment about Roman’s mumbling. It’s always bothered me. LOL
I missed quite a bit of Friday’s episode because NBC was covering the Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal. It figures it would be when Eileen returns (which I didn’t know about) and Sami’s call. Luckily I did get to see the last half of the show. Even though I could watch it on Peacock. I just prefer to watch off my DVR without commercials.
