Let Me See You 1, 2 Chomp

I know her parents are supposed to be the ones who have been through all this trauma lately, but are we sure Ciara didn’t get in some kind of accident that required her to have her jaw shut?

I can’t imagine why else she’d be delivering all her dialogue through her teeth.

I actually think she’s doing all right with the actual emotions, but the talking-like-Mr.-Ed thing is weirding me out. People seem really disenchanted with her on the various boards and blogs I read, but they dropped her into the middle of some pretty heavy storyline. I loved Kid Ciara, but a lot of her material and delivery was very “Ain’t I a stinker?” — which was funny, because she was a kid getting involved in adult soapy drama, but the grown-up version clearly had to evolve. In conclusion: if she can learn to move her teeth when she speaks, I think she could work.

And then there’s this dude — “Fynn,” as the Internet tells me his name is spelled — who is pretty hot but apparently can’t open his eyes. Is this a thing going around Salem? People can’t open various facial features? I can’t wait for the Sami recast whose nostrils are stuck closed.

As for people whose faces function properly but whose brains do not: what’s up with Jennifer being so blasé about Abigail’s absence? “Yeah, well, she and Ben are having a baby, so they had to disappear, and no, I have no clue where they allegedly went, but she sent me an incredibly generic text, so even though there was a serial killer on the loose recently, I’m sure it’s fine!” I’m enjoying the tension of the entire Chad/Abigail/Ben scenario, especially that coded message Abigail relayed to Chad over the phone and his efforts to follow up on it, but what’s with her mom just shrugging the whole thing off? I guess as long as Abigail doesn’t come off as rude and/or want to be a model, it’s all cool!

    I also feel that Jennifer should be super worried about Abs absence by now – she was worried the night of the wedding – why not now? It would be very unlike Abs to ditch a family wedding, and then not to call after the news about Hope and Aiden.

    When Chad goes to the apartment, he finds Ben acting strange and claiming that he and Abs have moved. Without taking their stuff. Not weird at all. So of course, Chad goes to get some coffee instead of lurking around and then following Ben. Huh? Chad needs to take some lessons from Steve about rescuing damels in distress – he has LOTS of experience.

      It seems insane to me that Jennifer isn’t concerned. At the wedding, she mostly didn’t want people to think Abigail was being rude (…for skipping a wedding she had promised to be in, on like ten minutes’ notice) and she hasn’t thought much about it since. Why didn’t she CALL Abigail’s phone instead of texting her to call her yesterday? Melissa Reeves was smart to play it as though Jen was trying to convince herself there’s nothing to be concerned about, but there’s only so much to do with dialogue that absurd.

      I thought it was weird that Chad wasn’t asking more questions about this “move,” either. “Where did you move? Why didn’t you bring your stuff?” Tailing Ben would’ve been much smarter, you’re right.

    • Robbiemac420 Says:

      I absolutely agree with you about Chad getting coffee. I was SURE that the next scene would be him following Ben and coming to the rescue of the woman he loves, but no. And Jen’s blasé attitude toward Abby is so uncharacteristic of her needing to know what is happening to her children at every moment. Really weird.

      • mykleraus Says:

        It’s so plot-driven. I get that they want Chad to be the one to rescue her, and that’s fine, but Jennifer could be, I don’t know, worried but have no proof — and be the one to convince Rafe to listen to Chad. Let them team up!

    I have watched Days for 40 years….I just discoved your blog and thoroughly enjoy your observations! I too noticed Ciera did not move her mouth! I thought she looked like a ventriloquist, but your reference to Mr. Ed surpasses mine–spot on!

  3. Robbiemac420 Says:

    I, too, have wondered about why many Salemites can’t seem to open their eyes fully. Perhaps it’s the stage lights.

    The most noticeable to me is John, who not only doesn’t open either of his eyes at the same time, but has this odd way of tilting his head at strange times. I wonder if Marlena has been staring at John too long and trying to see him through her own eye slits, which open only when she is surprised!

    And I agree with you about this new guy, Fynn. Nicole just can’t help flirting, can she? Poor Daniel. But then Daniel is another one who peers out of hooded lids, which may impair his vision for noticing that Nicole still makes eyes at every T,D, or H who enters Salem. I hope he doesn’t miss anything in surgery!

    Steve, of course, does very well with the one eye he has. Victor and Stefano can’t help that they are aging. Actually who am I to judge? I have noticed my own lids drooping a bit since I started watching DOOL 30 years ago!

    • mykleraus Says:

      I think we know why Marlena can’t open her eyes… 😉

      As for the rest of them, I’d be squinting, too, if I had to deal with that damn light in the police station and the nonstop red-and-green flashing outside Abigail and Ben’s apartment!

  4. ADW Says:

    It’s amazing all the little details and quirks we notice! Theresa and Abigail actually look like Margret Keane big eyes paintings compared to the many other squinty, beady eyed Salemites. Fynn is some nice eye candy but, hmm an attractive, womanizing surgeon whom we never heard of arrives in Salem and is connected to someone, it’s déjà vu! Also, I find it odd that Fynn is considered a friend and contemporary to Daniel however he seems too young, Daniel strikes as being a career mentor or older brother type. Why do I find myself thinking that Fynn and Nicole will commiserate and hook up after Daniel leaves?

    • mykleraus Says:

      As soon as Fynn popped up, I texted my friend, “So we’re getting rid of Daniel and they just rebooted him back to 2008 — with an accent — with the new guy?” Ugh. I do not see the point of plugging this dude into Salem when Eric, Lucas, Brady, Shawn, Philip, whoever Jordi Vilasuso is playing (Dario?), and God knows who else will all be floating around.

    • Robbiemac420 Says:

      I couldn’t agree with you more! Daniel is leaving?!!??

  5. Robbiemac420 Says:

    Absolutely! Who needs one more hot eligible guy in Salem? As Carrie Underwood sings, “There must be something in the water!!”
