I actually think there might be another twist there concerning the original fire, but I wouldn't be shocked if it was Jordan too.

These situations are very different, but I'm reminded a little of what Ron did with Rebecca Lewis during the KAD Killer story on OLTL, completely change her personalty with little lead-up into a baby-stealing psycho.

I hope not but the HOrton brat will not allowed to be with a killer.

Ugh at this rate they’ll retcon that Jordan was the necktie killer the whole time and just brainwashed BenOllie into thinking he did it. 🙄 

Oh, Ron will totally do that.  All of that so the serial killer can be the male lead of the show.  That’s what’s going to happen once Chad and Abby are out of there.  Ciara and the serial killer will take over from where they left off and eat the show.  Not looking forward to that.

I think this Jordan thing would have played out better with a little more time - if they had brought her back to town, let her mingle around a bit, maybe showed some cracks in her facade, and then revealed she's lost the plot.

Totally agree! This feels so weird and desperate, almost, to close the plot. I don't know what's going on, but the only good thing lately is JACK and even then we have to suffer Eve along with him. I like Kassie and all, but she's been given a poor hand of cards this time.

I've been wondering about this too and had an outlandish but who-knows-with-these-people thought-- what if it's Claire who set the fire?

Oh, God. I can so see this happening. Can you say, "COP OUT!", boys and girls?

I can see that, too.  Even though we saw Ben murder them all, including the midwife in the middle of the blizzard.  

Show does that and I'm out.

There's a spoiler floating around that says Ben admits to Ciara that he had to force himself to not kill Jordan (paraphrasing the exact wording) so I hope that means they aren't going to completely retcon him being a murder. That would have been some bullshit if they went that far for redemption.

Even though Jordan apparently has lost her damn mind (and Ben should be able to relate), it should be goddamned difficult to kill the sister that practically raised him and tried to protect from his abusive father. He can take a million seats.

This whole Ben Redemption b.s. is so hamfisted I feel like we're being force fed.  

It was already too much but the other day when he started having "visions" of her.....oh, BROTHER.

I hope they're both so happy together that they combust into confetti and disappear.   

Show, no matter who the headwriter is, sure knows how to make their "heroines and heroes" damn near indigestible, don't they?

If that spoiler is true, I'm concerned it's going to be presented as some sort of quasi-romantic thing. "I was so upset with my sister for almost killing you that I almost killed her, because I love you so much!"

I thought Jordan coming back with Rafe's baby would be stupid, but I'd a million times rather have had that than this. I agree with the others who have said this reminds them of when Ron brought back the Rebecca character on OLTL.

I will miss Chad. He’s been phoning in his performance a while now though. It reminds me of James/EJ towards his last year. I did like the actors though and they were handsome. 

Abby should have NEVER been brought back in the first place. 

It's well known JS hated that EJ & Abifail affair story, so that wasn't a surprise. He ghosted anything related to that story other than showing up to phone in his lines.

And BF and KM don't get along IRL, so that's not a surprise either.

I am enjoying the Ben & Ciara stuff. Sure, it's heavy handed at times but what story on this show isn't and hasn't been for a while? It's not like nuances are Ron's strong suit. I also think last time I checked, Cin was winning the DOOLapp valentines poll so what doesn't work for some seems to work for others, which is how it should be on a soaps and why soaps should have more than one storyline at a time going on ::looking at you B&B:: That said, I hate that Jordan was brought back for this and are rushing through it at warp speed but it's better than Jordan bringing back Rafe spawn (I am trying to find the silver lining). 

I am amused that people are still mad about Gabi even though Gabi's actions were reactions to Abby & Stefan. I can't wait for Chabby to leave. Ultimately, the audience is the winner with Chabby gone and Gabi is in second place without the knife in her back. 

vvvv

Polls aren't that reliable as they can be manipulated through unlimited times of voting, deleting cookies and other means.  B&B has been suck for a long time, the only advantage they have is budget. If only Days are lucky enough to get its hands on bigger budget and investment.

The "true love" of Chabby is only winning because one actor's leaving and the other got let go and now Queen Gabi has the whole kingdom to herself.

But whatever...

I forgot to comment above but that Elani article is odd. I think LA is more invested that SS but it's not like they're getting story. They don't even get to celebrate Valentines Day as other pairings / couples on V days but instead are shoved into the following week to have a belated celebration. Mess. It really does come off that TPTB have Elani film random scenes that they insert later where they've scrubbed other stories. 

I have wondered when Leo is gone what story will Wilson have or if TPTB will just backburner them.  I thought Stefan made that realization a while ago that he was in love with a party city wig.

I think a better way to redeem Ben would be through reconnecting him with his sane sister who had medical training.

Almost anything would be better than redeeming him by having him become obsessed with, ahem, I mean fall in love with Ciara.

What bullshit. The viewers SAW BEN KILL PEOPLE ON SCREEN! This is why soaps will forever be mocked. And reminds me of Whoopi Goldberg losing her shit in Soapdish, as the head writer that learned she would be writing for a previously-killed character via decapitation:

"He doesn't have a head! How can I write for a guy who DOESN'T HAVE A HEAD?!"

Soaps started getting mocked when Marlena started floating above her bed. At that time, instead of just being daytime drama, they became very campy...especially when they started resurrecting people from the dead. So yeah, anything goes now...and we shouldn't be shocked by the unbelievable.

Yeah. Days got the big ratings briefly. And only sold out the core of the show Ken Corday's folks created in the process. James Reilly had ISSUES.

You are so right and the possession story truly was the beginning of the end for the show.  I always hated that story with a passion.  I also think that Ken Corday was the worst thing to have happened to Days of our lives.

Honestly, I think the fault lies more with the writers who came after Reilly and didn't shift the show back towards character growth and the human experience. Reilly did what he did well, and it was good for the show, but that era ended well over a decade ago and since then we've had writers who can't even bother to give us a sense of who these people are at the various stages of their life. I haven't heard Kate or Marlena reflect on aging or being grandmothers or any of that. Of course the college-aged kids don't make any sense either. What classes are they taking? What do they want to do with their lives? How have they changed? I have absolutely no idea and they've been on my screen for years now. It's like we're not allowed into these characters anymore. Reilly not only gave us the spectacular over-the-top drama and spectacle, he still didn't lose sight of who the characters were at their emotional core. If Kristen was just some villainess making crazy things happen but we didn't care about her pain, none of her plots would have mattered. And that's kind of what we have now - sometimes big stuff happening, but no emotional entry point into it, or rarely. It's like there's no time to just allow something simple to be explored, like a character being depressed, or a character reflecting on their life. Hell, we hardly ever see these characters at their jobs!

It's when they take time for the small stuff that the actors really get a chance to shine and the world of the show feels more true to life.

If we aren't getting that now, that's squarely on the shoulders of the current writers and nothing to do with James.

James normalized over the top stories to the detriment of character-driven stories. I have no problems with camp as long as the characters remain in character.  The three prism story was over the top camp, Stefano needed the three prisms to cure his cancer, but, Roman, Marlena, Eugene, Bo, Hope e.tc. all acted and reacted in character..

Bravo, @DisneyBoy -- exactly what I'm missing about this show. I'm relying on years of watching these characters to figure out their motivation is, but the newer characters aren't as lucky.

Jen: It's your daughter's wedding you have to be there.

Me: If Jack missed the first five weddings (not including the weddings that Abby stopped) and three different grooms in the past THREE years, he can always make the next wedding. Because I have no doubts that Abby will once again decide to divorce Chad and marry someone else before she decides to marry Chad for the 4th time.

I thought it would turn out to Jordan but while I am surprised it is Claire, I am also not surprised cause the girl has been clearly fixated on winning Tripp for a long time. I am interested to see the lead up that made her set fire to the cabin. And I wonder if Hope will care that her granddaughter tried to kill her daughter cause she seems pretty reluctant in applying the order part of laws when it is a relative or friend who broke it.
