Okay, so today was the first day I didn’t entirely hate Kayla (Mary Beth Evans). She was finally written in character and concerned for Steve. I did love the Kleenex box throwing though. That was classic Steve and Kayla. I loved the part where Kayla told Steve whatever threat they were going to face, they’d face it together. The look on Stephen’s face was just priceless. You could tell he was liking that Steve and Kayla were getting back on track. Though I have to say this still does not in any way quell my want for Steve and Ava (Tamara Braun). In fact this doesn’t do anything for my wish that they’d hold off on putting the Johnsons back together until Steve and Ava have had a bit of a go…. Or a long bit of a go. I have to give a couple of honourable mentions today. The first has to be Kate Mansi who plays Abigail Devereaux. She has been killing her scenes with Robert Scott Wilson who plays Ben Rogers. Then there are Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso as the eponymous Bo and Hope Brady. Their scenes the past couple of days have been incredible to watch and as an old time DAYS fan, I couldn’t be more ecstatic. I also have to give props to the now departed Daniel Cosgrove who played Aiden Jennings. What a thankless job of having to pull that 180° turn. Daniel Cosgrove will go far I believe. He’s that perfect mix of old time Hollywood and new style solid acting. My kudos to him for his amazing work on the show.

Looks like Steve and Bo (Peter Reckell) are back in Salem, though not in time to stop Hope’s (Kristian Alfonso) nuptials with Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove). Kinda sad and tropey. Wait, that was yesterday’s edition. Sorry, I’m tripping. Caroline (Peggy McCay) was really tugging at my heart a little with how bad she feels for not being able to stop what was happening. Ah well, with news that Daniel Cosgrove is due to check out of the show on November 9…that was supposed to be a spoiler. Don’t care. If you come to this site you’ll find no spoilers or warnings of spoilers because I think we’re all grown ups by now. All that “spoiler” crap is for kids. Sorry kids. (Said in a voice like Ze Frank). And may I say I loved the jail break?

So I didn’t get yesterday’s screencaps up. My dog ate my screencaps teacher. Like that would happen. Just about as much as Steve and Bo (Peter Reckell) getting back to Salem in time to stop Hope’s (Kristian Alfonso) from marrying Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove). Methinks it won’t happen. But I’m just loving the interplay between our two unlikely heroes. I loved the fact that Bo commented on Steve’s ego and today all the banter involving the repair of the motorcycle and when Steve (Stephen) quipped “Road Trip”. Too funny. I also loved Caroline’s (Peggy McCay) shenanigans to delay Hope’s nuptials. All in all this Steve fan is very happy.

Here are today’s caps for you. Loved how territorial Steve was today with both Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso). Particularly the latter. Looks like he’s got Aiden’s (Daniel Cosgrove) number a bit too well. I just didn’t like the scene between Bo and Hope where Hope told Steve off. My only big issue with what’s happening on screen is the notion of Steve and Bo (Peter Reckell) being deadbeat dads who left their kids. That of course was only to facilitate the needs of the prior regime who refused, for some inexplicable reason, to bring back either actor. But then the only one to blame was Ken Corday. He’s the continuing factor in whether Steve and Bo came back onto the canvas. What I’d like to know is, why now?
