What Happened in Salem: Week of March 27th

This week on Days of Daniel’s Afterlife…

In one story about Daniel Jonas, a man who has been dead for over a year, Brady realized that he’s in love with Nicole and took his child to Canada to be with her. When he confessed his love, they spoke at excruciating length about Daniel’s heart. Then nosy-ass Hillary came barging in with her husband, Scooter, who was sure he recognized Nicole from somewhere. Nicole panicked after Hillary, who has never met the phrase “TMI,” confided that Scooter watches a lot of porn.

    I find EVERY scene – of which there were WAY too many – involving Nicole to need fast-forwarding. I cannot understand why TPTB insist on letting her drone on and on and on, while other story lines, which to me are far more interesting, get barely any screen time. Why couldn’t they have had a scene with Steve and Adrienne after her surgery, confiding their fears and troubles to each other? Why can’t S&K ever get some cuddle time – since we were totally robbed of a honeymoon or any of their fabulous “romantical” interaction after the wedding. Nope, we dive right into the Ava 💩 spawn story. I do like the actor they hired for Tripp – he seems to be able to act, is easy on the eyes, washes his hair and generally looks like he could be Steve’s son.

    The Chad/Abs/Gabi/Dario quad turns me off, mostly because I’m not a big fan of shows where committed couples fall in and out of love and change partners on a whim. If I liked that kind of thing then I would be watching Y&R or B&B, where that seems to be all they do. Chad’s “love” for Gabi – a woman he had previously despised, makes him seem stupid and shallow, and cheapens his relationship with his wife. Gabi is a lousy friend who really wants to steal her “best friend’s” husband, no matter what kind of 💩 comes out of her mouth. I can only hope things improve once Ron’s writing comes onscreen this summer.

      I’m really getting worn done by how segregated everyone is in their storyline bubbles. If you see that one person is on, you basically know who else will be on that day. The cast integration is really poor right now.

      I find the Chad/Abigail/Gabi/Dario story really messy. One of Higley’s biggest weaknesses (and I say this as someone who has enjoyed and defended more of her work than a lot of people!) is that once a couple gets together, instead of generating a new story for them, she makes the next story about moving them on to another pairing. It was interesting when she paired Lucas and Chloe (just to mix things up), but almost immediately, Chloe cheated with Daniel, and then when she and Daniel got together, she cheated with Philip, and Daniel moved on to Jennifer, etc. It would’ve made way more sense to write this story so that Chad and Abigail stayed apart after he found out she faked her death, and he started (slowly, in a way that made sense) to move on with Gabi, but then he and Abigail were drawn together, and you’d get to play the longing between Chabby — who would eventually reunite — as opposed to this confusing scenario in which everyone comes off horribly.

    I find Adrienne’s cancer/treatment story line, Eli’s coming to Salem to get to know his family, and Tripp’s introduction so much more interesting AND they all have nothing to do with Daniel. I’m not interested in any of the cops and their office romances. Also, I don’t care for anything involving Abbie however I love Chad.
    One aspect I find quite amusing about Chloe is she is more at ease knowing Brady is with Nicole as she’s convinced Brady will keep Holly safe. I find this laughable because Brady is a dullard and this is sort of like the blind leading the blind. Futhrrmore it’s interesting that Chloe is not all insanely envious, furious, catty, and/or snarky when it comes to another one of her own sloppy seconds potentially being romantically involved with Nicole once again.
    I still laugh about Misty Circle and it’s rather hysterical that Scooter is such a porn coniseur. Can you really blame him though? What else is there to do in that boring, provincial town besides surf the web (“the internet is for porn”)? If Hillary was my wife, I would want to escape from her as well whether it’s a long hike to work or holing up on the computer. Scooter better start clearing his browsing history or else Hillary may see more of Nicole than she bargained for.

    scooter? srsly scooter?? what the flock…..glad i missed that epi or oi would have projectile vomited all over my flat screen……
    scooter? how old is this perv? 5 ??

  4. underyourwing Says:

    one of my friends has a dog named tripp…..—-there ya go. but yeah, scooter skeeves me out.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I don’t necessarily mind Tripp, but it sounds very “country boy” to me.

      • ADW Says:

        I think Sarah Palin has a kid or grandkid named Tripp? Eww. 😝
        I forget about the Muppets Scooter/Skeeter haha 😄
        I want to call him Skeeter now because of the “skeet skeet skeet” in Lil John song “Get Low”

      • mykleraus Says:

        I think Tripp is her youngest kid. But all the details of that circus got a little confusing for me!

  5. Shea Says:

    It actually bothers me that they are using a strong actor like Robb Derringer to play this Scooter role. I had never knowingly seen Jennifer Landon act before this Hillary role but I understand she has done multiple soap roles before and I expected more from Michael Landon’s daughter. Both of these characters are just garbage and the story is playing every predictable note….what is the point?

    • mykleraus Says:

      Jennifer Landon was great on ATWT. Her Y&R role was a bit of a mess, but she certainly wasn’t bad. It’s ridiculous that they’re using her for this instead of bringing her on as, say, Stephanie or Sarah or someone.

  6. underyourwing Says:

    the point must be to drive us all insane wondering what the point is…….

  7. underyourwing Says:

    it does go well with Tanqueray I must say……tonic and rocks.

  8. underyourwing Says:

    WHY are they making such a BFD about this porn thing and tooter?? WHO CARES??? everyone, other than the old ball & chain, are acting like they have the goods to start a nuclear war or something….it’s OLD, it’s a stupid VHS tape, what the hell can tooter do anyway?? this is making me want a Tanqueray IV forget the tonic and rocks. i mean, please……no one cares nicole. punch this waste of space in the throat.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I guess Nicole figures that if he identifies her as Misty Circle, he’ll realize she’s Nicole Walker, a fugitive, etc. Which actually makes sense to worry about, I suppose, but it’s hard for me to care much because she and Brady are SO DUMB and no one in Salem even seems that worried about it.

      • underyourwing Says:

        well, he already poked her as misty and she was a wuss about the whole thing. she should have just told him to stfu and kicked him (and his wife) out. but we can’t have that now, can we? hell no. the only thing he wants to realize is his underpants down and misty kneeling in front of him. ewwwwwww.

      • mykleraus Says:

        It’s so gross. I am so tired of these weird sexual manipulation plots on this show. This guy has NOTHING better to do than worry about some sniffling woman who was in one porn 20 years ago?!

    • mykleraus Says:

      Also I’m shocked Hillary hasn’t flat-out gone through their possessions and found their real IDs anyway.

      • underyourwing Says:

        i know this is rather redundant but why the hell these guy are putting up with this unwanted unwelcome blatant attack on their privacy and their personal biz/space is beyond……i am just sitting here with my jaw on my knees…..get back tooter!! Not for YOU…..

      • mykleraus Says:

        Lock the damn door! Or stop answering it. You know who it is!!

  9. Shea Says:

    So I watched the show today and WHY would they cast the same actor they had playing Zach in Hope’s vision play the guy who Ciara went on a date with? The girl was already raped by her stepbrother and now she is dating her dead older brother?

    • Shea Says:

      Wait…Zach was younger, not older. Sorry, I got confused for a minute.

    • mykleraus Says:

      They always pull weird stuff like this with actors in small parts. It cracks me up. Like before Rachel Melvin was Chelsea, she was… the fake Georgia whom Bo and Billie found in Europe!

    • ADW Says:

      THAT was the same guy? LOL 😂
      I thought Ciara’s date Wyatt reminded me of someone who would be cast to play one of Danny Zuko’s less attractive friends in the T-birds in a remake of Grace.

      • Shea Says:

        It was the same guy. I thought his face seemed a little rounder this time around. Not sure if it was just his hairstyle or if he put on a little weight but it was definitely the same guy.

      • mykleraus Says:

        It definitely looks rounder. He didn’t look as good as he did during the first appearance, but I like his screen presence.
