Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) endured the awkward task of introducing new love Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson) to old flame Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin), when the trio bumped into each other.
At the Brady Pub, Kate (Lauren Koslow) begged Daniel (Shawn Christian) to convince Chloe to give her supervised visits with Parker. Looks like the "I'm the only grandmother he's ever known" car worked, as Daniel said he would talk to Chloe.
Marlena (Deidre Hall) admitted to Hope (Kristian Alfonso) she was feeling guilty over actually preferring Kristen with Brady, if it meant keeping her rival away from John (Drake Hogestyn). Hope told her former sister-in-law she couldn’t play by Kristen’s rules. READ MORE
Some things just don’t change, even after a two-and-a-half week hiatus from watching Days of Our Lives because of the holidays. When I last tuned in, the only thing remotely interesting was Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Eileen Davidson). Whether ironic, sad or depressing, one thing is certain; absolutely nothing has changed. It is still the only interesting storyline.
Sure, Brady continues to be an idiot, and yes Kristen’s toying smirk can be a bit annoying when done too often. However, 95% of the time, they are the single best thing DAYS has to offer. The impact of their relationship's revelation on his family was fantastic.
John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) were in fine form on Monday. Marlena let John have it, after he confronted her about keeping Brady’s relationship a secret for so long. She demanded to know if she was supposed to have taped Brady and Kristen having sex, because he wouldn't have believed her otherwise.
Kristen (Eileen Davidson) hunted down Marlena (Deidre Hall) to find out why she hadn’t spilled to John (Drake Hogestyn) about her having sex with Brady (Eric Martsolf). She needed Marlena to tell John to help further her plot, and quickly started to torment her nemesis. Marlena said Brady was too fragile for Kristen's clutches. Of course, John walked up as the two were talking. Meanwhile, Brady ran into Maggie, (Suzanne Rogers) who told him that she’d never seen him look better. READ MORE
After not being able to sleep all of last night, I have now found the cure for insomnia — Days of Our Lives. At the Brady Pub, Gabi (Camila Banus) and Will (Chandler Massey) continued discussing what to do about their baby. Will told Gabi and Nick (Blake Berris) he was okay with them raising his child as their own. READ MORE
Kristen (Eileen Davidson) caught Marlena (Deidre Hall) snooping in her room. When Kristen asked if Marlena had found anything, Marlena admitted she had, but planned on sharing it with John (Drake Hogestyn). The two women struggled over Kristen’s tablet. Kristen fell to the floor, just as Brady (Eric Martsolf) arrived on the scene. Earlier, he realized Marlena used his phone to send a text to distract Kristen. READ MORE
Days of Our Lives is being anything but mean, mean, mean today, by re-airing one of my fav-or-ite episodes! Tune in to relive John Black's (Drake Hogestyn) Elvis-themed wedding to "Kristen" (really Susan Banks!). I cannot wait to see the incomparable Eileen Davidson in all her multi-role glory once again!
