The Long Goodbye

If there’s one thing this writing regime is great at, it’s hitting me right in my sentimental spot (I have one, somewhere between my little black heart and my wine-curdled liver) with homages to the show’s history.

I mean… ahhhhh!

Sami’s goodbyes have been ON POINT. They hit the perfect tone with her and Nicole, of not making them magically become friends but still managing to give the actresses (and the characters) some sweet moments. I was delighted that they went all the way back to 2002 for their flashbacks. And then the stuff with Lucas — without engaging in any kind of couple-fanbase war nonsense, I really do love this new ground they’ve found for Sami and Lucas as friends. I could’ve watched an hour of flashbacks, but that was such a nice tribute to the characters’ and actors’ 20+ years of history. I died at that final exchange:

Sami: Lucas… I’ll never have a better friend.
Lucas: Neither will I.

Awwww. And then they even went so far today as to involve Ciara and flash back to Sami fighting with over THE EARRING. I die!

    I loved the Sami-Lucas flashbacks 😃 the Ciara one not so much, the only place I see that in the movie is on the cutting room floor…I have a hunch that Sami’s good bye isn’t forever, they left the door open for Sweeney to return. I have a feeling she will be back on Days once her kids (in real life) get a little older and Biggest Loser is canceled.

      I just think Ciara is hilarious, so I’m glad they spent a moment on that. And kudos to Days for bothering to give Sweeney and Kristian Alfonso — two long-running actors who haven’t really had story together — an onscreen farewell.

      Sweeney already said she wants to return for the show’s 50th anniversary, which should be filming in like six months, so I’m glad they didn’t give her some kind of exit that would require all sorts of logistical gymnastics.

    I believe that whatever doesn’t kill you simply makes you stranger!
