Something Smells Off Here

Are we sure that Jordan isn’t John’s daughter?

She’s either been taking acting lessons from Drake Hogestyn or Kate ripped a Silent-But-Deadly one right as she opened the door.

While we’re on the subject of Kate, can we just take a moment to reflect on how glorious she is?

This is pure Glamorous Soap Bitch, and I’m loving it. This woman is truly an asset to the show.

Monday’s episode, on the whole, was pretty strong. I’m not sure why Will is being such an idiot that he can’t even take a five-minute break from writing to place a phone call, but I liked how realistic it was that he felt Sonny was ragging on him to anyone who would listen. The mess with Sonny/Paul/Theresa has a lot of potential, I’m enjoying seeing Melanie reunite with her friends, I could get into a Lucas/Adrienne fling, and Kate sleeping with Clyde at least ups the ante a bit. I feel like we might be in one of those awkward transitional phases, and if we hold tight for a few weeks, our Christmas present will be the formation of actual stories. Here’s hoping.

    Kate is ridiculous. Lol. Also, look who showed up today on Days, Amanda Corday! I never thought I’d see her again

    Melissa Salmons delivered a solid Monday script. The shade being thrown between Anne/Theresa and Abby was GLORIOUS! This is the kind of snark that balances an episode nicely with some of the more dramatic material.

    Hate all you want, but I died at Jordan’s reaction to find Kate vamping it up at Clyde’s suite. Her reaction was hilarious.

    I’m surprised that people were actually allowed to call St. Will on his bullsh&t. Have we finally reached a point where scripts were being written for a post-Chandler Massey Will where we don’t have to believe that Will is the Second Coming. This situation developing with Sonny and Paul might actually go somewhere since they gave him a contract. I would really like to see Theresa blackmail Paul into marriage only for a bitchy Will to blow up Paul’s spot with one of his trademark front page cover stories.

      They’re almost making Will TOO much of a shithead here — he’s so self-involved he can’t take a damn five-minute phone call? But yes, there’s definitely been a shift. And I’m very excited about the potential of the Sonny/Paul/Theresa stuff. It’s truly a fresh story for Days, which is nice.

      Jordan’s reaction WAS hilarious. I actually loved her marching up and banging on the door, shouting, “Open up, you bastard!” I would really like for there to be a turn here where Kate realizes what a monster Clyde is and teams up with Jordan to take him down. This bugged me in the Chloe-the-hooker story, too, but it seems so cruel for Kate (a survivor of abuse who wasn’t able to protect Billie from Curtis) to not give a shit about what Clyde has done to Jordan.

      • Dan Says:

        I don’t mind shit head Will. What hurts is that all of sudden everyone and there brother is calling Will out on his selfish, self righteous behavior. I think they could justify this time because the person being hurt is Sonny, who really has done nothing wrong. In the past, Will has always been self destructive when it came to people like Sami and Nick, who were deemed unworthy.

        What is also different is that Will and Sonny have always made up quickly because they’ve been able to communicate. While annoying, it’s why I’m so willing to buy the current set up. A typical Will and Sonny fight involved Will or Sonny pouting, the other explaining why they felt/did what they did, and then they made up. By keeping Will away and unable to communicate, the conflict is elevated. Also, hasn’t this really been Will’s trajectory since the first cover story during this summer. Will has made moves that have hurt his friends and family in hopes of developing a career. Honestly, I suspect this would have played out LAST fall when they sent Will out of town the first time, but probably put it off so they could recast Will and have the audience invest more in the story.

        Finally, I like that Adrienne was ultimately proven right in her initial proclamation regarding Sonny and Will: Will’s family has caused problems in their relationship.

      • mykleraus Says:

        I definitely think they put off giving Will and Sonny major relationship drama until the recast settled in. I also think they were very (maybe overly) sensitive about having the first gay wedding on the show be “pure” — not tainted by infidelity, secrets, etc., like a lot of the weddings on this show. They’ve definitely laid the groundwork re: Will’s family and his selfish career choices. I actually feel like this is fairly organic, and giving Sonny a history with Paul instead of some insta-attraction really helps.
