Promo: After the Olympics
For the next two weeks, while NBC airs the Summer Olympics, we get to check out the disastrous infrastructure in Rio instead of that in Salem (zing!). But they’ve released a promo for what’s to come after the break and, well, it actually looks sort of good?
Spoilers, obviously — but I’ll put my commentary behind a cut. You can watch the video here, since NBC’s embed code is giving me a headache.
I’m guessing these are the 2-4 weeks that follow the Olympic break. Interesting that they deal with Tate being found that quickly, but there’s no hint as to who took him — looks like they’ll be playing out the suspicion about Victor for a while longer. This whole prison break thing with three random villains is, well, random, but it’s kind of fun. I never, ever thought I’d see Orpheus onscreen in present-day episodes; I wonder what kind of motivation they’ll give him. But it’s high time they pay off the awful way that Xander was set up for rape and tossed in prison, and it’s an interesting way to bring Theresa’s redemption full-circle. And I enjoy Clyde as a villain, so this could be fun.
Meanwhile, this yawn-worthy Kayla thing is still going on. I’m sure there’ll be some good scenes as a result, but it’s like Kayla doesn’t even remember that she has a subdural hematoma half the time. And this doesn’t indicate much actual movement with regards to the Jennifer/Chad custody suit. Also, if Aiden becomes the D.A., who’s going to represent Jen in the custody suit? There are no lawyers left! I guess Justin could step in. I also don’t hate the idea of Aiden turning on Hope about her shooting Stefano, though I have a hellish feeling he’ll force her to marry him or something, and then we’ll be “treated” to a lot of Rafe moping around sullenly. Bleh.
Oh, and Eve! I love that they’re bothering to include her in Theresa’s wedding. And Jen Lilley looks fantastic in the wedding dress. Dare I hope that I’ll be entertained instead of annoyed in two weeks?
