Hiding behind the bathroom door, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) was saved from having to listen to Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Eileen Davidson) having sex by him noticing the Titan documents Nicole planted on Kristen’s computer. Brady accused Kristen of ulterior motives, but she denied any wrongdoing and rushed off. When Brady followed Kristen, Nicole slipped out of the room.
When Brady caught up with Kristen, the two argued for a bit, before Kristen revealed Nicole had been at her room earlier. She suggested Brady's ex may have planted the incriminating documents on her computer.
The turnaround at NBC's singular daytime soap Days of Our Lives is in full effect. Amid a creative renaissance (Superbitch Kristen; Wedding Interruptus) and a renewal, the sudser hit a 21-week high among the coveted women 18-49 demo the week of Jan. 14-18. READ MORE
With buzz growing about the upcoming versions of All My Children and One Life to Live possibly delving into edgier, ripped-from-the-headlines stories, my brain has been working on overdrive about how the remaining four daytime soaps could also benefit from such a shift in storytelling. Don't get me wrong, I love a good return-from-the-dead as much as the next suds lover, but at some point, when you've seen one — you've seen 738,265 of 'em.
Awhile back on Twitter, I posted how I would love to see Sami's (Alison Sweeney) teen rapist Alan (originally played by Paul Kersey) return to seek his warped brand of revenge on Days of Our Lives. Back in 1995, Lucas' (Bryan Dattilo) pal Alan dated Sami, while secretly pining for her older sister Carrie (Christie Clark). Frustrated by his lack of progress with Carrie, Alan violently raped Sami.
During the rape trial, Sami was branded a liar and Alan was released. It wasn't long before he came after her again — this time with a gun! Sami managed to get the weapon away from Alan—before he could rape her a second time—and shot him in the business!
Distraught, Sami made love with Lucas, conceiving Will. Although no one in Salem knew that fact for quite some time, because Sami passed the baby off as Austin's (Patrick Muldoon). What if Will, devastated after some future bust up with Sonny (Freddie Smith), decides to look for love online? READ MORE
Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kristen (Eileen Kristen) were in the midst of sparring yet again when Roman (Josh Taylor) interrupted. Marlena wasn’t very subtle in trying to get her ex-husband to leave. After he left, Kristen toyed with Marlena. Frustrated that her plan wasn’t going the way she wanted, Marlena decided to leave. Kristen stopped her and then showed her a piece of paper that read: “I know what you are doing.” READ MORE
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.
