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
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.
No. 10: Molly and TJ, General Hospital
General Hospital has been giving us cute teen couples since Laura (Genie Francis) and Scotty (Kin Shriner). In 2012, the tradition continued when precocious Molly Lansing Davis (Haley Pullos) fell hard for TJ (Tequan Richmond), the wayward charge of Shawn (Sean Blakemore). Molly and TJ have survived parental interference, hormones and toxic water, but can the YA lovebirds contend with Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) and Connie Falconeri (Kelly Sullivan), now that they're interning at Manning Enterprises?
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 Kristen) woke up in bed with Brady (Eric Martsolf) and for a moment it looked like she had second thoughts about sleeping with John’s (Drake Hogestyn) son. Brady quickly distracted her with kisses. Unfortunately, Kristen’s mind won out over Brady’s matter. She jumped out of bed and told him to go. Brady just leaned back in bed, looking like a cat that had just lapped up fresh cream.
