    I've thoroughly enjoyed all the double wedding stuff. It's nice to see they coughed up the money to include everyone who should have been at the wedding. I can't remember the last time that much of the cast has been in one episode.

    I was predicting (maybe hoping) that Sami was going to show up at the wedding and announce that Will was still alive, but I guess it's pretty clear the wedding interrupter is Ben.

    Sami's usually the one getting interrupted at the wedding, not the interrupter. Still, it would be a nod to continuity if she stood up to announce Will's not-quite-dead status, only to have someone interrupt mid-sentence to urge Sami to put a sock in it.

    Vivian's return has been... amusing. I am hoping this "Stefano" won't end up being his son though.

    Wow, it's almost been a year since anyone has posted in this thread.

    I did not mind Marci Miller's take on Abby, but it sure is great to have Kate Mansi back. She gives the character way more spark than Miller did. I wish she was staying longer. However long she's going to be around, it isn't long enough. I love Abby and Julie teaming up and I love Julie's never-ending disdain for Gabi. Pretty much everybody Julie knows has killed or almost killed someone, but the only grudge Julie holds is against Gabi for killing scummy Nick.

    I was never much of a Greg Rikkart/Kevin fan on Y&R, but he is fantastic on Days. Right now he is my favorite thing on the show.

    It's been renewed through the 2019-2020 season, so it'll now last until September next year at least.

    I did, again, see the New Years episode, which Ron C seem to be making a staple for returning vixens. Eve of course was incredibly camp and then Jack showed up. Again. With Amnesia.

    Well, Dr. Rolf's magical "bring people back to life" serum causes amnesia--just like it did with Will. So the amnesia is perfectly logical. :D

    I never thought I'd live to see the Day that "gay for pay" was a topic of conversation on Days.

    It's good that NBC cares so little at this point that they don't even bother cutting that kind of stuff out.

    This is such a mess on so many levels. Judith Chapman is returning to Days as a character named Diana and the rumors are that she's playing Diana Colville, Genie Francis' character from the 80's. First of all I love Chapman and I love that she will be playing Leo's mom. Leo has become my favorite Days character at the moment and we know from their time playing mother and son on Y&R that they will be a fun pair--especially since Kevin is able to be way more campy on Days. I can even overlook the fact that Chapman has already been on Days as Anjelica Devereaux.

    But . . . having her being Diana Colville is ridiculous. I liked the Diana character and I liked Genie in the role. Francis and Chapman are nothing alike. Also Diana as played by Genie was a good guy and not campy. There's just no way the character would have evolved into Judith Chapman. (But why I am expecting logic from Days?)

    Also, having Leo be John's long lost son, so that John has two long lost sons who both happen to be gay -- silly. But . . . if Genie Francis were returning as Diana to reveal that Leo was John's son I'd deal with that repetition. I just don't want Chapman to be Diana Colville.

    I heard Genie is off contract again on GH. Too bad Days couldn't have lured her over.

    I'll enjoy watching Chapman with Leo. I just don't want her to be playing Genie's character.
