Okay folks, I'm recapping today's episode of Days of Our Lives because it's Kassie DePaiva's last day as Eve, and I have a long, long history of adoring Kassie DePaiva.
I haven't seen most of her run. I stopped by last year for a few days and then peeked in every now and then (particularly to watch the episodes around Eve losing her daughter to some serial killer or another* and to check out the A Martinez situation), and I watched her scenes yesterday (and fast-forwarded through about a million people from All My Children and One Life to Live, including Rex standing there with terrible hair talking to someone who looks way too much like Stacey Morasco to not trigger some PTSD). And that's about it. So I'm coming in not totally blind, but something closer to legally blind.
(Who was that girl she was vocal-coaching yesterday?)
So they open by wasting DePaiva's last few moments by repeating the back half of her scene from yesterday. So she's taking this girl to NYC for a Juilliard audition, I guess?
This other blonde comes in and tells Eve she's overstepped her boundaries with her daughter. Are you kidding me? This woman is old enough to be that other chick's mother?
Did she birth her at her sixth grade school dance?
Ava has locked Kayla away somewhere and Patch is pretending to want to get together with her in order to convince her into freeing Kayla. Or do we call him Steve now? That seems a little more grown-up, but he does still have the patch.
Somebody whose name I don't know is talking to Dylan McKay's dad about finding a new job in Salem.
Eve is continuing to butt heads with Belle. Oh wait, Belle! She's played by that chick who temporarily played Elizabeth over on General Hospital and also I think Belle is the character that Kirsten Storms (Maxie, GH) played when she was on this show. Soapland!
Theresa is talking to Nicole about their start-up. What they're starting up, I don't know. And Theresa is played by Jen Lilley, who played Maxie for a while on GH. What a web.
Anyhoo, back to this scene between Stefan Cassadine and Carly Corinthos, I mean this scene between Reese and Tucker, or I guess what's really happening is that Ava is telling Steve he has to sex her in order to convince her to release Kayla. Oh cool, rape! Never too much rape stuff on soaps, amirite??
Eve, whose hairstyle looks tremendous but whose roots are....not good, gives Belle some parenting advice based on her own shortcomings.
Ray Montez/Roy DiLucca/Cruz Castillo is up to something shady but I have no idea what.
Ava: You give me a piece of this? And I will be happy to tell you where Kayla is. And then you're going to come with me to find our son, or I'm going to tell Kayla what you did. So do we have a deal?
Meanwhile, Katherine Bell/Sierra Esteban is trying to bust out of a room through a doggie door.
It's too small, Kayla.
Jack McKay got the guy with the icy piercing blue eyes a job, starting immediately! Like taking candy from a baby. I think this guy was on that horrible Dirty Soap show, right?
Belle wants to get Claire another vocal coach, but Claire is NOT HAVING IT.
Eduardo is holding a gun on some dude's neck talking about how "only the student can defeat the master." I mean if I had a nickel. And then he lets him go after taking a smartphone picture of him.
