I have been in a soap funk lately, hating GH and being bored by Days (though on the latter point there has been positive progress – more on that in the coming days). As a result of that funk and a crazy work schedule, my posts here have all but disappeared. So I thought, what better way to get back in the mood than to watch an episode of the first soap I ever watched, from the era in which I fell for it? Therefore, I bring you a recap of a Days of Our Lives episode from December 1988. (I previously blogged about the episode after this one, but then found this old tape (I only have like five soap tapes, so the odds of sequential episodes are low), and figured it was worth recapping. Particularly since I assume everyone has already forgotten about the last one! Except the video about Kayla’s wardrobe. Because nobody can forget that.)
Fair warning: This post will contain many mullets and shoulder pads. Reader discretion (and, if applicable, ability to mock things you unironically wore in the 80s) advised.
