Meh...it's hard to get emotional about all of these deaths when I'm sure they are not really dead.
Monday, January 16 Bonnie gives Sarah surprising advice about Xander. Gwen visits Xander at the motel and discovers he's a drunken mess. Will learns damning information about Leo. Stephanie cries on Chad's shoulder over Alex.
Tuesday, January 17 A furious Steve corners Kristen, blaming her for what happened to Kayla. Stephanie, Joey, and Tripp share emotional memories of Kayla. Brady is outraged by Gabi's request. Stefan confronts Li.
Wednesday, January 18 Chloe confronts Kristen over her litany of offenses. Steve hands over Kristen's confession to Rafe. Brady apologizes to John for mishandling the Kristen situation. Li defends Gabi to Stefan.
Thursday, January 19 Belle returns home to be by an ailing Marlena's side. Marlena's condition worsens. Rafe and Jada are on the hunt for a missing Kristen. Kristen prepares to flee town with Rachel.
Friday, January 20 John denies Marlena's request but comes up with a compromise. Johnny and Chanel reconnect as they help John with a surprise for Marlena. Rachel has a major meltdown when she finds Brady and Chloe together. Kristen tries to blackmail EJ to help her out. Jada and Rafe bond over their victory.
I know that these deaths aren’t going to stick but how in the heck is Kate supposed to come back to life when her body has already been cremated? Also, wasn’t that cremation awfully quick? It just seemed too weird for me. I’d love to have Kate tell Marlena and Kayla in Heaven that they can go back home in their bodies but where the heck is she supposed to end up?!?
It’s nice to see some good acting and emotional drama, but it’s hard to take it seriously when you know that they’re not going to be dead for long.
I’m actually liking Stefan and I’m so glad that Brandan isn’t playing Jake anymore. Stefan is a lot more interesting.
I agree, it's so emotional but then I am also not that upset because we know they are coming back at some point.
Part of me wonders if they are faking this on purpose or something to nail Kristen...like Steve, John and Roman are all in on it. I thought the cremation was very fast as well and also deliberate to show her urn sitting there at the pub.
I agree, Brandon is SO MUCH BETTER as Stefan. I really liked it when he came on the show as the recast Stefan and was bummed they killed him off. That was one of the bad things about how they film so far ahead, the audience didn't warm to Stefan until they had already filmed him dying so they had to scramble and make up this twin, but Jake was terrible. What a difference!
Li sure has a lot of nerve to punch Stefan, though!
I have to say I am very sick of Stephanie and her fake crying with no tears...oh my.
Even though Shelley Hennig wasn’t a great actress, she was a lot more likable as Stephanie. The recast isn’t the worst, but they’re giving her more than she’s capable of. I’m actually surprised that Robert Scott Wilson isn’t that bad of an actor. I liked him better as Ben but he’s doing an okay job as Alex.
I totally agree with the fact that the 3 Stephanie’s have all been completely different. The first one was a red haired race car driver. Then, came Shelly, who played it completely different being the cheerleader type with dark brown hair. Now, she’s the head of her own PR company with light brown hair and nowhere resembles the past two incarnations.
Neither Stephanie or Joey look at all like Steve and Kayla’s children. Tripp at least looks like Steve’s Son. Just like I buy Shawn and Ciara as Bo and Hope’s kids.
On another note, Zach Tinker blew me away with his performance the other day. His tears were so natural and you could just feel his pain of being so hurt by giving Leo a second chance. I’m loving Sonny again. I just hope that the rumors of Zach being dropped are just rumors.
Lastly, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I adore Gwen now. As much as I hated her before, she’s so wonderful and loyal to Xander.
I agree with you about the Johnson kids. I am not sure if I like Stephanie. I think the actress is fine, but the fake crying is getting to me.
I agree, ZT did such a great job in those scenes, I felt a little bad that Will was so gleeful about Leo's downfall since Sonny was so clearly hurt by it. A lot of the actors have been putting in some great stuff. Brandon Barash, Eric Martsolf, Jessica Serafaty, even Nadia...
I agree Gwen is a lot more palatable now.
Now we have Kristen kidnapping Rachel. She is such a terrible mother, all the stuff she said about Chloe. Ugh. I can't stand her. I am glad Johnny agreed to go along with Steve's plan.
