Today’s episode was all about Clyde, but that wasn’t a bad thing. It feels like they are setting up his death. (That’s not a spoiler, just speculation.) I enjoyed the movement in the JJ story very much. I am so glad he finally told Roman the truth, and I can’t wait to see what Roman does with his information about Eve. I thought it was only a matter of time before Eddy found out about Eve’s less admirable actions regarding Paige. This should be interesting.
One thing that struck me in his scenes today, especially the one with Roman, is that JJ is not acting like a insecure teen anymore. Yes, JJ did some boneheaded things in this undercover case, but being a little hotheaded is part of being a Days hero. 🙂 I liked the strength I saw in him today. I’m looking forward to seeing JJ join the grownup set.
And squee! Chem testing with Gabi! I actually can’t believe how excited I was by this little scene.
I had Lani pinned as the one who JJ might be paired with, but I’m intrigued by Gabi too. She and JJ both have troubled pasts and brushes with the law. I like how they aren’t glossing over the fact that Gabi is an ex-con. It looks like they are going to play some story beats with it. This letter Gabi was delivering could possibly turn into something (maybe her friend is using her), and they are showing her struggle to get a job.
The pier seems a little more seedy than it used to. Which I guess is more realistic, but … sigh.
And we got a Chad and Abby scene — it’s been awhile! They’ve both been on a lot, but not interacting. This was a really good scene.
Those eyes, those eyes!
I’m glad someone warned Abby about Clyde. I think Jennifer and JJ were wrong to keep their knowledge of Clyde from Abby — she’s marrying into the family! (In fact, I’d say it was a pretty big plot hole. But oh well.) Of course, Chad’s knowledge of Clyde’s doings is vague and unsubstantiated, but I liked that Abby listened to him — and expressed skepticism in the right spots. And of course I loved the moment when she was upset he was almost caught, and the moment above when he declined her help because she’s pregnant.
(The Salem PD manhunt is pretty inept, I must say. Chad is walking around pretty freely. Maybe Eduardo’s reward will help.)
But goodness, I’m scared for Abby. Today she was caught between Mr. Ominous the Elder and Mr. Ominous the Younger. Yipes!
In between those two dark stories, Brady and Theresa’s battle with the colicky baby was cute. I especially liked the singing.
And I know that when my husband and I were taking care of crying babies, these are exactly the type of outfits we would wear. Really.
