So many stories are so tantalizingly close to resolution on Days of our Lives -- we love watching how the folks involved react as things unfold. Like Chad finally realizing that Nicole "adopted" Mia's "baby" (use of quotes very intentional) ... or how we're starting to get (some) answers as to why Carly killed Lawrence. Let's get to our weekly rundown of the latest and greatest, shall we?
Funniest Moment: Have we mentioned lately that Days has been short on laughs? We have? Good, cuz this week wasn't any different -- which is just fine 'n' dandy ... though we do like a chuckle every once and a while. It's good for the soul. Anyhoo, the closest we came to LOLing was when Daniel called baby Sydney his "new BFF." Because hearing the term "BFF" come out of Daniel Jonas's mouth is pretty entertaining.
WTH? Moment: We weren't short on WTH moments this week, however -- and several related to Carly's plight. First, do doctors really bring up the Hippocratic Oath at significant times like Carly did when she and Omar found Rafe? It's surely not the first time a soap doctor has committed to "First, do no harm" -- we're just wondering if real-life doctors think about it as often. Second, and most WTH: What was with those noises Rafe was making when Carly was administering CPR? Aren't you, like, dead at that point in time? It sounded like Carly was hurting him, and he was awake to realize it. Very weird (and yet strangely compelling ... ).
Best Moment: Did anyone else notice that baby Sydney looked (longingly) back at the DiMera mansion door just after EJ threw her and Nicole out? It was either brilliant acting by the youngest member of the Days cast ... or, more likely, a happy coincidence. But OMG is that baby cute?! And so well behaved.
Runner-up: We definitely enjoyed seeing Arianna and Brady reconnect. If he ever needed a friend (or more?), it's right now. Being part of the whole Nicole baby switch is really doing a number on his fragile psyche.
Performer of the Week: Speaking of Brady, we think Eric Martsolf really ran the gamut this week -- and had the five o'clock shadow to prove it. Several women -- Melanie, Sami -- realized that maybe the reason Brady helped Nicole isn't just cuz he's a nice guy; maybe he's still in love with her. Eric's performance this week showed how much Brady's wrestling not only with his feelings for his former flame, but also about being part of such a HUGE, illegal lie. Well played, Mr. M.
Why We Love Days of our Lives This Week: Because Bo busted out a photo album containing awesome old skool pictures of him and Hope -- most featuring his former Beard That Almost Overtook His Face. We love looking back to the past!!
