Dr. Raynor confessed all to Nicole who struggled with what to do with the reality, Brady and Kristen felt the pull of MacKenzie, and all of Salem was pranked on April Idiot’s Day.
Our TV Fanatics Jack Ori and Christine Orlando are joined by Stephanie and Ronnie from MyHourglass a Days of Our Lives fan forum to debate whether or not Dr. Raynor is villain or sufferer, if Kristen will make a great mother, Ben and Ciara’s profession choices and whether or not April Idiot’s Day was successful or a miss.
Is Dr. Raynor the harmless sufferer she makes herself out to be?
Stephanie: I might say sure and no right here. On the one hand, Xander just about threatened Dr. Raynor’s life, and if individuals have to decide on between holding a secret or dying, most individuals are going to decide on to maintain the key.
Nevertheless, on the opposite, she did have a alternative. She may have refused to take the cash Xander and Victor bribed her with initially and gone straight to the authorities in the event that they threatened her.
Jack: No, no, a thousand instances no. I am sorry, however that is no completely different than Lani giving in to Gabi’s calls for.
Raynor may have refused the cash and gone to the cops, and if she was scared Xander would kill her on the spot, she may have taken the verify, then gone to the cops as an alternative of the financial institution. She may have even let the cops use her as bait so they may catch Xander making an attempt to assault her.
Ronnie: Dr. Raynor is definitely not a sufferer however Xander and Victor are the true villains of the story.
Christine: No! And it makes me loopy that she retains calling herself Sarah’s pal. I’m certain Victor and Xander pressured her that night time however she may have gone to the police.
As a substitute, she cashed the verify and stored her mouth shut. Then she whines that the native mob boss needs to kill her when she retains the cash and doesn’t depart city. Properly, that’s what occurs once you make offers with crime lords and take their cash!
At this level, I’ve completely no sympathy for Dr. Raynor and I hate that she’ll in all probability wriggle out of this with no penalties. She deserves to lose her medical license. Victor and Xander couldn’t have pulled this off with out her.
If Brady and Kristen do get child Rachel again, do you suppose Nicole is correct and Kristen will make a horrible mom?
Stephanie: I truly suppose Kristen may make a great mom. She has softened since shedding Rachel, and the truth that she needs to volunteer to carry infants on the hospital reveals that she has a pure urge to need to deal with youngsters.
In any case, I’d wish to see her have an opportunity to be a mom. It could be a recent change from watching her both attempt to wreck everybody else’s lives as a result of she’s sad or watching her stroll round mourning the entire time.
Jack:I believe she’s mistaken on this one. Even having given delivery has softened Kristen, and she or he shall be a faithful mom if she will get her child again.
Although I might be anxious about anybody who had something to do with this as a result of she might lash out at them and we all know what occurred to Haley final time Kristen lashed out in blind rage.
Ronnie: Kristen is a psychotic rapist. I do not blame Nicole for considering that she would make a horrible mom. I suppose now that she has discovered God we’re alleged to neglect what whole nutjob she truly is.
Christine: At one time, most of Salem would have mentioned Nicole would make an terrible mom too. Kristen has many, many faults, however she may also be fierce, loyal, and loving. I believe she has the potential to be a fantastic mother.
What do you suppose Sarah will do when she learns the reality?
Stephanie: I believe Sarah will throw a type of screaming matches we’ve seen her have when issues don’t go her means. She’s going to most certainly dump Xander and refuse thus far anybody for some time.
She gained’t need to hand Mickey over to Kristen and Brady, however I additionally don’t see her happening the run together with her or something like that both. It in all probability gained’t occur instantly, however she’ll most certainly do the precise factor and provides Kristen and Brady their baby again finally.
Jack: She’s going to be damaged hearted, and possibly break up with Xander (hopefully to not have grief intercourse with Eric once more).
I believe since Mackenzie already is aware of Sarah and Eric as her mother and father, they need to share custody with Kristen and Brady, however Sarah will possible give the child to Kristen full cease.
Ronnie: I would really like Sarah to simply go away as a result of I can not stand her. However I believe she’s going to dump Xander after which cry and scream rather a lot. So just about what she already does, besides she is going to lose Xander as a lapdog for a short while.
Christine: She’ll in all probability not imagine it at first, then Xander will provide to go on the run together with her and MacKenzie, however in the long run, I believe Sarah will do the precise factor and provides Kristen and Brady her baby.
Whether or not she is going to hate Xander eternally or see that this was his and Victor’s determined makes an attempt to guard her and Maggie is anybody’s guess however I do know I’m hoping for the latter.
What was your favourite a part of the April Idiot’s Day episode? Did you want any of it had been true?
Stephanie: I truly favored Daniel coming again. I hated the way in which his character acted on this episode, however it was good to see him once more.
I might be okay with him coming again for actual and being a father to Holly. Salem College Hospital may additionally use one other physician on employees since Kayla appears to be the one one who does any work there now.
Nevertheless, I wouldn’t need him with Nicole once more. I at all times discovered them boring as a pair.
Jack: Actually, my favourite half was Leo saying April Idiot’s on the finish in order that this stupidity was over. I do not like campy fantasy episodes that add nothing to ongoing tales.
That mentioned, I want Daniel was actually alive. It could be much less good with out JJ within the present since they shared a particular relationship, however Daniel was one in all my favourite characters and I hate that he was killed off.
I additionally would not thoughts Sheila coming again and making hassle for Lani and Eli. They want a narrative apart from giving Gabi soiled appears.
Ronnie: The newborn was tremendous cute. That is just about all I can consider, and I suppose as a TLC fan It was good to see Tionne « T-Boz » Watkins again as Sheila.
Christine: I cherished Leo! From his outfit to the way in which he riled up Will and Sonny, and all of his off-handed quips, his return had me laughing the complete time. Additionally, I knew 5 minutes in that this was all an April Idiot’s Day spoof in order that made it simpler to take pleasure in.
What job alternatives ought to Ben and Ciara pursue?
Stephanie: I believe Ben and Ciara ought to pursue police work.
Regardless that she was solely motivated to do it due to her obsession with Ben, Ciara proved to be smarter than all people on the Salem Police Division when she realized that the DNA discovered on Jordan may belong to David’s father.
Ben has expertise with safety after working for Stefan for some time, so they may in all probability discover a place for him within the division too. No matter they do, I hope it results in some higher storylines than them simply laying round in mattress all day!
Jack: Hopefully, jobs that preserve them away from one another for a great a part of the day in order that their story is about greater than having intercourse.
Ciara wants route. Did she ever end school? Perhaps she ought to return and work on determining what she actually needs to do together with her life.
Ben used to work on the membership earlier than he went nuts, so why not return to being a waiter or bartender whereas he figures out his subsequent transfer?
Ronnie: I truthfully do not know. Ben was a bartender/waiter earlier than he began murdering girls, so maybe he ought to return to that. As for Ciara, being Ben’s cheerleader is the one factor she appears to actually care about and be good at.
Christine: Ben is a employee however nobody will rent him resulting from his document and Ciara couldn’t even maintain down a job at her household’s pub so I don’t see them having a number of prospects.
I can see them beginning their very own detective company and competing with Black Patch since nobody appears to work there anymore. It’s additionally following in Ciara’s mother and father footsteps which might be a cute homage to them.
What, if something, disillusioned you this week in Salem?
Stephanie: I used to be disillusioned by the truth that it looks as if Nicole goes to make the identical mistake but once more and never inform Eric the reality about Rachel and Mickey.
This shall be in all probability the third time lately that she has stored an enormous secret from Eric, and it’ll blow up in her face because it normally does.
Jack: The April Idiot’s Day episode was terrible.
Past that, I may have accomplished with out all of the violence surrounding Marlena’s rescue. Too many weapons after which all that blood after Anna took Stevano’s eye out together with her shoe.
And Tony was proper — Stefano would NEVER hurt his youngsters or condone them turning violent towards one another.
Lastly, Nicole higher not preserve this secret to herself in spite of everything the difficulty she went to search out out the reality!
Ronnie: The present nonetheless making an attempt to promote Brady and Kristen as some sort nice love. I simply roll my eyes at them.
Christine: Nicole being a hypocrite about Xander. Xander was mistaken however he switched the infants, at Victor’s urging, to guard Sarah and Maggie.
Years again, Nicole blackmailed Dr. Baker to change Sami’s child with Mia’s to steal Sami’s child for herself and it wasn’t to assist anybody however herself.
What was your favourite quote, scene, or storyline this week on Days of Our Lives?
Stephanie: On the flip aspect of what I mentioned within the above query, my favourite scene of the week was Nicole questioning Dr. Raynor.
She was sensible and instructed her that the DNA outcomes she bought proved that Mickey truly belonged to Kristen and Brady. If she hadn’t accomplished that, I’m undecided Dr. Raynor would have confessed so simply.
I loved seeing Nicole work out how one can make the scenario work in her favor. It’s a aspect of her we don’t see fairly often anymore.
Jack: I cherished Nicole confronting Raynor and getting the reality out of her for as soon as and for all! Kristen and Tony’s scenes had been surprisingly candy and supportive too.
Ronnie: All the pieces Anna. Abby and her made a enjoyable little crew and and her poking Stevano’s eye with shoe was hilarious to me.
Christine: John being there for Brady as he struggled with taking good care of MacKenzie and convincing himself that the birthmark was merely a coincidence. I like the daddy/son moments between John and Brady. John is at all times there for his son, it doesn’t matter what.
