Days question (spoiler)

NetGNetG Posts: 8,116Registered Users
If John Black is going to jail for 50 years, does that mean viewers don't have to watch squinty eyes and his acting anymore?

I know nothing about the actor, and he could be a fabulous human being. But in that role - I can't stand him!

    I HATE John and Marlena!

    And please tell me what the heck was going on with Abby and Austin yesterday? That was just creepy.

    I always loved Jack. I'm glad he's back. I loved the second actor that played him, too.

    Can you tell I'm unemployed and my mom always had this show on when I was a kid and I always get hooked...

    Does John still think he's a priest? And is Marlena still possesed by the debbil? I think that's the last time I watched this show.

    Oh, please!! From your mouth, er...fingers?...to the writer's ears!

    I've never seen the actor do anything else, unless you count the years he was playing "Roman Brady" but it was all the same.

    I think there was a running joke on Friends, when Joey was supposed to be working on Days, that that's what the actor does, when he needs to read the cue card. So, if so, not only does he not know his lines, but he needs glasses, too!

    cailin, I don't remember when John thought he was a priest. Maybe I blocked that, and the devil story (but sadly, I do remember that one.)

    CIBC, the Abby/Austin scene WAS creepy. Shouldn't he be considered her honorary uncle? Austin and Jennifer worked together years ago, didn't they?

    Sadly, I got hooked again on Days this past summer.

    And she's a kid!!!!

    I know Abby's uncle is Lucas since Jen and Lucas are half-siblings and Lucas is Austin's half-brother on the other side.

    But, still! He has known her since she was a baby! Why was he looking at her like that???

    I'm so out of the loop...when did John come back? Last time I watched regularly he had amnesia (again) and he and Marlena had left Salem. That was maybe 2 years ago.

    They opened a center named after Tom and Alice Horton and four "Surprise Guests" came to celebrate with them...John and Marlena and Carrie and Austin.

    John was in a wheelchair (was that ever mentioned before???) and his son Brady hates him (I'm not paying close enough attention to understand why.)

    He stood-up and walked for the first time at the party. And now it seems like he's in some kind of a Bernie Madoff scheme???

    (Like I said...not really paying close enough attention.)

    I also can't stand Sami. Rafe is way too good for her!

    I haven't watched in 20 years, but wanted to know, is the original Jack back? I love him. And the original Jennifer. They had the best TV wedding!

    ph: yes, it's the original Jack, but without the charm he had. Now the goofyness is just weird, imo.

    CIBC: I have no idea why John was in the wheelchair, or if he was paralized when he and Marlena left the show. Don't know why Brady is so hateful, too, though they did try to explain it all when he was stuck with Madison during the blizzard. I didn't see it all, but it seemed to go along the lines of: my mother died and my father was distant/absent. I could be wrong on that part, though. I was liking Sami until this latest development with EJ. Yuck, yuck, yuck. And, that scene was awful to watch.

    legends, I wasn't watching when John and Marlena left, either.

    Obviously, I'm too invested in this show lately.

    Oh, God! Carrie and Austin are back?! Whyyyyyyy????!!!!!! Those two made me want to commit violence last time I saw them.

    And now that you mention it, I'm pretty sure John was in a wheelchair when he and Marlena left the show last time.

    I was excited Austin was back until I saw he hadn't aged as well as I hoped. I used to drool over him!


    I was on the computer and Mom had it on in the other room today so I heard the sentencing. I see bits and pieces every once in a while, but am not up on this show at all!

    I HATE John and Marlena!

    This this this!!! I was soooo glad when they left the show and so bummed when they recently returned. Did you see it today when Marlena "almost" fainted when John was led out of the judge's chambers following his sentencing? It was singularly the worst piece of acting I've ever seen. I actually LOL'd!

    And yes on the Abby/Austin "thing" ...creepy!

    oh yeah, one more thing...don't you love how John is always "working out"? I'm sure all prisoners are allowed to have dumbbells in their cells...no safety issues there!

    I thought the same thing. It looks like he has spent too much time in the sun and it's taken a toll on his face.

    Haha, I just flipped past the Soap network and today's episode of Young and the Restless is on.

    It looks like on this show, the former Patch and Kristin from Days of our Lives are a married couple!
  • CanItBeChristineCanItBeChristine Posts: 6,343Registered Users
    I remember seeing Austin in a TV Christmas movie a few years ago and thinking he didn't look so great and that he oddly looked like Bo Brady now.

    My mom said he looks like a poor man's Rob Lowe now.

    I was also wondering a few weeks ago if Daniel and Jen couldn't be together because this latest revelation about Maggie being Daniel's mom meant they were first cousins.

    BUT! It wasn't a complete frozen embryo...just a frozen egg...and Maggie and Jen aren't biologically aunt and niece...so...no bloodlines.

    What on earth was I thinking!

    I hadn't watched enough to know, but my mind totally went there, so I had to ask my mom. :lol:

    I wondered the exact same thing! Also, another reason I hate John....have you noticed that whenever he kisses Marlena it looks like he's going to swallow her whole...kinda like a snake eating its prey...yuck! :puker:

    Yes, the justice system is very odd there.

    Remember when Sami got the death penalty for killing Franco?

    CIBC, I've been asking that for 20 years!!!

    As to the Daniiel/Maggie story: I know we have to often suspend reality in soaps, but really, was the medical community actually freezing eggs in 1970? Daniel has to be at least 40 years old, right? I'm trying to remember when we first heard about 'test tube' babies. (terrible term, isn't it?) some time in the 80s, right? Hmm. Maybe they were freezing eggs by 1970 and I was too young to know. (shrug)

    Hahahaha...I had the same thought but they DID make a comment like, "Back then, it was a very rare and risky procedure!" which, obviously, gives them the liberty to do whatever they want, I guess..........................

    I think Abigail is so adorable! I love her big eyes.

    I'm also confused, what's going on with the three boys and the website? I missed all of that.

    I hear Billie is coming back.

    I was in love with Interim Jack.

    And it's also a given that Sami will get pregnant again now that she's slept with EJ, right?
  • CanItBeChristineCanItBeChristine Posts: 6,343Registered Users
    My memory for details of stupid things is so pathetic and scary...I'll remember some random plotline from twenty years ago and my mom will be like, "HOW DO YOU REMEMBER THAT?"
  • KurlyKaeKurlyKae Posts: 3,413Registered Users
    Oh, it's ridiculous the things I remember from soaps, but don't ask me anything important from my real life!!

    Sami HAS to be pregnant, right??? Isn't that a DAYS go-to storyline for her?

    I guess I missed the comment about the egg freezing procedure. Not surprising since I generally record and fast forward.

    "Some one" has been hacking into Chad/Will/Sunny's website and setting up some sort of gambling scheme. The boys tried to shut it down, but didn't succeed. Anyone have a guess on who that 'some one" might be?

    Which Billie is returning? Please say Lisa Rinna!

    I agree the second Jack was a cutie. He's been on a number of prime time shows, so I assume he'll never step foot back into Salem, so we're stuck with goofball Jack.

    I had a rough morning at work, so I'm hoping today's episode is entertaining.
