Emotions Taking Me Over
When Days aired their shocking revelation--actually, does it count as a shocking revelation if everybody guessed that it was the case?--that EJ Wells is actually Elvis Jr., son of Susan Banks and Stefano DiMera, I went through a flurry of emotions.
DISAPPOINTMENT that the most obvious answer wound up being the correct one (EJ=EJ, of course). I thought Hogan (we're tight like that) would have come up with something shocking.
CONFUSION over how the pleasantly dumb Susan wound up with an evil son. The woman's famous quote was "Mean, mean, mean", for heaven's sake. I'm sure Stefano hijinks were involved, which then led me to HOPE that Kristen somehow finagled a way out of white slavery to escape to England and have a hand in raising Elvis Jr. to be a murderous villain with impeccable bone structure.
I then segued into DESIRE to sing "A Little Less Conversation" to the oh so dreamy James Scott, which caused me to be CONFUSED as to how Susan and Stefano created such an alarmingly handsome son.
He could get it any day of the week.
You know, genetics are a HILARIOUS thing. Apparently, flamboyant hand gestures run in the DiMera family (*insert joke about Italians here*)
Like father, like son!
Mostly, I was EMBARRASSED that Days managed to eclipse the ridiculous Victoria/Nicholas SORASING that made The Young and the Restless so legendary. Can't we let another show have a ridiculous honor for once?!
I do love the fact that EJ is evil, gleefully evil, even, but is treated like a villain, unlike some other shows where hitmen are the moral centerpiece. I also love that Eileen Davidson is free and willing to entertain the possibility of coming back and pleasepleaseplease do it, Eileen, pleasepleaseplease.
Overall, Days is ruling pretty hard right now. Steve and Kayla's real reunion? Awesome. Steve and Bo's reunion? Awesome. Nick Fallon? Awesome. Drake Hogestyn's continued unwavering support to the school of Smell The Fart acting? Even awesomer. Considering the mess that this show was six months ago...I want to send the new writing staff tons of presents.
