Max- Race Car Driver or Super Spy (& Shawn/Belle update)

I really enjoy having Max back on the show, but would somebody decide what he is going to do and stick with it. He was great as the new heartthrob in town: the race car driver living on the edge! Then he becomes the town womanizer. Next, he's just a boring car mechanic with a past trying to get the good girl. Now all of a sudden, I'm supposed to believe the town mechanic is jet setting to Italy to spy on one of the most sophisticated crime families in the world!!! I can totally see why Max asked Kayla why she didn't take Roman or Bo, those are the brothers you want with you for this mission. I think I would even take Marlena or Hope before asking Max!

How great was it to finally hear Belle tell Shawn "I love you" today? Can we finally get moving with this couple now? They have had so many things standing in their way, including Shawn's blind stupidity. How does he not see Belle's insecurity and jealousy of Gabby? That doesn't take a genious to figure out why she wants to leave the island all of a sudden. If they can just get off the island before Phillip spots them! Will Gabby turn them in? Has she been working for Phillip all along? There's something not right with her! Come on "Shelle" get it together!

Willow - Are her 15 minutes up yet?

I must admit I have never been a fan of Willow. I don't see where she fits into any of the storylines they have put her in. I did not like her paired with Shaun. We all know he belongs with Belle. I understand there must be bumps in the road of a relationsip to keep a soap opera going, but come on people, did you really think a prostitute was the right way to break up the next supercouple?

As if that were not bad enough, when Shaun finally got smart enough to break things off with her, you would think Days would write her off. So why is she still on the show? Her scenes with Phillip to try to get Claire back were awful! The only purpose they seemed to serve was to make Phillip more of a jerk and I think we all can agree that no one likes this side of him either. Victor makes a good villain. Phillip does not.

Now we are being treated to family members of Willow! I actually like Jed. I feel kind of sorry for him since he had no idea what his sister was doing to fund his college education! However, if this prolongs Willows stay then Jed can transfer to UCLA for all I care!

They are even putting her in front burner stories with EJ and Bo and Hope. TPTB know that the fans are screaming for screen time for their favorites that haven't been seen in weeks like John and Marlena, yet we continue to have new characters like Willow shoved into scenes where she doesn't fit. The only good thing to come of this, I guess, is that she actually did start the fire in Bo and Hope's house even though she is trying to pin it on Chelsea. The sooner Willow leaves Salem the better!

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

My six year old heard my nephew say "Liar, liar, pants on fire!" recently and has decided it is the most wonderful poem ever! After watching Days today it sure seems to fit several characters!

I love this little romance blooming between Nick and Chelsea. TPTB have taken their time and built a nice, sometimes dysfunctional, friendship between them. They have struggled through this whole Shane Patton junk but Nick finally came clean and Chelsea is learning to forgive him. So the most precious line of the day is Chelsea saying, "Promise me you won't keep anything else from me ever again." Like so many before him, Nick has not learned from his mistake and does not take the golden opportunity to tell Chelsea, "Oh, yeah, by the way, I slept with your mom." Liar, liar, pants on fire!!! In the preview for tomorrow, we see him debating with Billie about telling Chelsea the truth. How long did he debate with Abby about telling the truth about Shane Patton? We all know they will debate this for weeks, Chelsea will over-hear, Nick will grovel, etc...

Across town, Sami is still in the church "confessing" when EJ overhears that her baby might be his. Why don't these people ever learn to pray quietly? So EJ demands an amnio for a paternity test. After he leaves, Lucas returns to find his fiancee freaking out and ready to run off and get married without the church wedding of her dreams. Clearly Sami confides in the man she is going to marry ... no she is a liar, liar, pants on fire! She continues to spin this same old tale of being afraid of what people will say at the wedding. Lucas seems to be smarter than that. Eventually he will have to put 2 and 2 together and realize that she is not freaking out when she is rational. She only freaks out when he leaves her alone. Maybe he will stick around and see who she talks to and what she does. Sami is always her own worst enemy! She loves to blame everyone else, but she usually does it to herself.

Oddly enough, on a day of liars, Billie had the opportunity and the motivation but told the truth to Bo. How about that! Somebody actually learned from their mistakes! Maybe she will listen to him about all the things he said about EJ. It didn't sound like she believed him to me. She may still be a little hard headed when it comes to matters of the heart.

Amazing Grace

This whole transformation of Sami has been a long time coming. I wasn't real sure I would like it, but the scenes in the church today were very well done! I think the things Lucas said to Sami described her transformation perfectly. He said their relationship was like the song "Amazing Grace" ... they once were lost without each other but now they are found. Of course, as a Christian, when the priest required them to come to confession I would have liked him to make mention of how we are lost with the saving grace that they were talking about. If you're going to mention it in front of a priest, shouldn't he mention the real reason you sing it?

Days does a pretty good job of accurately showing things in the church, even if they onlygo to church for weddings and funerals! I loved that Sami kneeled down and said she would go ahead and have her confession right there because that's what it was really all about anyway! I've always thought it was a little sad for people who thought that the only way you can confess your sins is to a priest. I know there are plenty of Catholics who know that they can pray directly to God, but I seem to know too many who have missed that fact! It was nice to see that on TV.

The fact that Sami is still hiding one more lie from Lucas is proof that we will see old Sami again. Now that I have grown to like this reformed Sami I am sad about that. You would think she would eventually learn!
