Well, we’ve always known the costume department has a sense of humor.
She looks like the one of the Coneheads!
Or as commenter thirddp pointed out on Twitter, like a giant sperm:
It’s been fun watching the actors maintain their dead serious expressions as they exchange bad news in their sperm suits. Hats off to soap actors, they are such troupers. And we’ve seen some nice glimmers of conflict and emotional scenes, like the one between JJ and Gabi, and the one between John and Paul.
I’m always in favor a big disaster that brings everyone together, so I have been enjoying the show more than I have for awhile. What I am missing is good soap pacing, which Days hasn’t done well for eons. Either nothing is happening and it’s taking forever not to happen, or else a disaster like this is unfolding and it happens too freaking fast. We hadn’t seen Paul for weeks when he became Patient One of this disaster. There should have been scenes of him feeling ill, brushing it off as the flu, before collapsing in some dramatic fashion. Also, Fynn put it together awfully quickly that this is a synthetic virus and therefore maliciously spread, and then in turn the finger was pointed at Yo Ling awfully quickly. These things can be so much more dramatic if they would draw out the suspense and drama a bit more.
Meanwhile Joey and Jade seem to have stumbled on the Manson family. About ten million red flags should have already gone up for Joey, but he is still lost in a moral gray area after killing Ava — that is, that would be a good explanation for his behavior if the show was bothering to give us one. Instead he is just coming off as very, very stupid. Sorry, Joey. But his dad got the opportunity to be a little bit smart, talking to Jade’s father and tracking down Claire and getting her to spill the beans. I appreciate how this are setting up (I assume) Steve’s absence for Kayla’s health crisis, which will conveniently allow Fynn to save Kayla’s life and cement a bond between them. Not bad.
