In an earlier post from Jamey, the highlights brought to the forefront was a mix of wanted Days of Our Lives storylines to bring this show back from the brink. With a show such as this riding on a prestigous history, we can't help but long for the Days we grew up with back in the day of bliss and glamour. I scrambled upon this video tonight which reminded me how much I enjoyed scenes between the characters of Alex and Marie, a comic duo one moment, then a lovestruck the next - really shows why Days has so much opportunity to bring some of it's best characters back and relive some of the magic. Alex Marshall and Marie Horton had a daughter Jessica, who inturn is Nick Fallon's mother. Story potential? You betcha! The beginning of rebuilding the Horton family - the cornerstone of the show.
Greetings kids! Action is headed our way on The Young and the Restless!
Katherine/Jill: Its official, former enemies turned mother and daughter are NOT related! The saga unfolds when Jill of all people gives the idea to Nikki when the latter pushed for another DNA test. Jill denies this request and tells Nikki to have Brock come back in town for the testing. Nikki loves the idea and brings it up to Katherine. This is delightful for Katherine because she knows that Brock will prove who she's been saying she is, but at the same time, Katherine's also scared to have the test because it means that Jill will no longer be her daughter.
Katherine would love for them to keep their relationship as is, even though they've had fights the ladies still had some good times. Katherine will miss the close relationship they've created. Meanwhile, Jill is rejecting the thought of not being Katherine's daughter but as time goes on, it starts to look that way and Jill is very hurt and starts to act out in anger. Brock comes to town and he heads to Murphy's trailer where he sees the woman in question and knows that she is his mother. Mother and son share a heartfelt reunion and Katherine knows that she doesn't have to go all out to prove who she says she is to Brock. READ MORE
Once upon a time, before the days when sexist, ageist trolls ruled the Daytime Kingdom, and before the pervasive, asinine notion that younger viewers only want to watch young, bland models learn how to act, or not, on the front burners of daytime soap operas, there were interesting, romantic, compelling, stories that exemplified the very fact that true love— and sometimes true hate—comes in all shapes, sizes, colors and yes, age brackets. These clips from Another World, Santa Barbara, Days of Our Lives and General Hospital show soap opera seniors doing what they once did best— fight, love and pass on the torch to the generations to come.

Extra! Extra! Read All About It! - Thaao Penghlis is out as Tony DiMera on Days of Our Lives. One could now ask where this would leave several Days storylines - a show of drama, surrounded in drama. Does this spell the end of the true authentic DiMera empire? We have been privileged to see Tony and Stefano opposite eachother on screen for many years in the 80's and have since been reunited on screen in recent times. Rumour has it that Tony will leave the show in a 'blaze of glory' or big Salem murder mystery. I see the potential of this being a major sweeps storyline, but the question now arises as to where Leann Hunley fits into the Days of Our Lives equation. Will Anna stay in Salem and find herself a new beau? Or will the almighty Executives at NBC further chop the cast list and send Leann packing - just like they have Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall?
