Things seem to be moving along quickly! I like the pace of this story.
Monday, April 17 Steve and Kayla try to get through to Bo. Stephanie and Chad arrive in Greece to look for Kayla. Megan and Kristen do a bit of sisterly bonding in prison. Hope receives intriguing information about the man who took Steve.
Tuesday, April 18 Xander and Chloe's rematch leads to a trip to the hospital. Kristen tries to use Megan's secret to her advantage. Harris wrestles with a huge dilemma. Chad and Stephanie face down a menacing Thomas Banks.
Wednesday, April 19 As Jada investigates the tainted biscuits, Chanel is adamant Sloan is the guilty party. Eric and Sloan get back on track. Nicole keeps a secret from EJ. Li has a big announcement for Gabi.
Thursday, April 20 Sloan's suggestion takes Eric by surprise. Nicole confesses in Anna, while Tony advises EJ. Stefan and Gabi officially reunite! Wendy arrives in Seattle to see Tripp.
Friday, April 21 Chad and Stephanie come face-to-face with Kayla! Hope is sent on a collision course with Bo. Andrew confronts Megan over her lies. Roman receives stunning information.
I’m guessing Roman’s stunning news is that Kate is alive? What else does Roman have going on?
Wendy seems better suited with Tripp than with Johnny. I like Johnny better with Chanel. I can’t stand Jada’s Sister. Jada is already becoming a boring character for me. Probably because they have paired her with Rafe.
I agree that I really like the pacing of the show as well. Plus, things are actually happening. They’re not just talking about things that happened.
Is Paul coming back to the show at all? It just seems like he was on his way to Salem but never arrived. I thought with Andrew still on the show, Paul would be as well.
I haven't heard anything about Paul coming to the show. I like Andrew but I find it funny how he refers to all his relatives as aunt or cousin when we have literally not seen Andrew since he was little. I know it's to establish he's a Brady, but he really doesn't know these people well. I like having him on the show though.
I don't really like Johnny or Chanel or Wendy. Tripp is the only one I don't mind of that group. I assume Jada's sister won't be around long since she poisoned everyone, but I wonder why. They seem to have changed Jada a little, her clothes are different, more glam. But this thing with her and Rafe is dumb and boring.
I am really liking Chloe with Xander, way more than her with Brady! I wish Teresa would come back for Brady.
I have decided I don't like Stephanie and her acting and facial expressions are very one-note. Chad has become a total doormat with her.
I completely agree with you on Stephanie. I wanted to like her but she’s awful. Shelly Hennig was so cute as Stephanie but I’m sure she’s busy with other projects in Hollywood. It’s a shame that Chad has been paired with her because there’s no chemistry and they’re boring together.
I still prefer Brady with Chloe, but if it keeps Xander away from Gwen, then I’m all for it.
I’m just concerned that the show is going to lose steam again once Bo and Hope leave again.
I get it that people think that Deidre and Rob have good chemistry together but this is a completely different character and was completely unnecessary. Casting him as a Kiriakis was really a bad idea. I would have rather seen him be a long lost twin brother of Ben. Passing him off as a completely different character who’s not supposed to be a doppelgänger for Ben was a completely stupid idea. Especially since they didn’t take any time in between Ciara and Ben leaving along with Alex’s arrival.
I really think now would be a great time to bring in some brand new characters and get rid of the dead weight. There’s way too many characters that I could care a less about now and now that all the good stuff is coming to an end, I wonder what they have in store next?
They don't have a very good track record with new characters - Xander, Eli, Sloan, and Paulina are really the only ones I have liked more recently. And they don't seem interested in either writing for legacy characters (Lucas, Will, Sonny, etc) or can't cast them (Stephanie, Joey). I don't know what the answer is.
