So both Steve and Bo (Peter Reckell) finally got away, though we didn’t see how they broke their chains. Me guesses somewhere along the line back to Victor’s (John Aniston) plane they managed to find either a good bolt cutter or the key to those very heavy and serious looking padlocks. The title of the post refers to of course the Victor Hugo hero of Jean Val Jean in the epic story Les Miserables. Love to hear Stephen pronounce that one. Though I feel it would sound a lot like La Liaison Dangereuse (pssst, Stefan Cassadine reference). Also for you, Stephen as well as Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans), Galen Gehring (Rafe Hernandez), Thaao Phenglis (Andre and Tony DiMera), Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera), Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) and Lauren Koslow (Kate Roberts) were on the extension of the Today Show with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. I’ll have both the screencaps and the clip up after this post. The appearance was in celebration of DAYS OF OUR LIVES 50th Anniversary next month and to promote the Greg Meng book Days of our Lives 50 Years.

Here is the preview for the coming week on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Looks like Steve and Bo (Peter Reckell) finally get away from Bo’s captors, however, they find themselves in a bit of a pickle on board Victor’s (John Aniston) plane. Yikes!

I was going to have one of my snarky add on title, but since this episode was somewhat serious, I thought better. Okay my reason for wanting to provide a snarky add on has to do with this fact: Why couldn’t they have had Steve actually find Bo (Peter Reckell) and bring him back to Salem? What would have been the harm in having him be changed in Kayla’s (Mary Beth Evans) eyes and those of the fellow Salemites who seem to think that both Bo and Steve are deadbeat dads and neglectful husbands? Also my gosh, is Victor’s (John Aniston) plane suddenly supersonic? Is it an Avengers Quinjet or something? Didn’t take Steve long to get back to Salem from the Yucatan Peninsula. In the amount of time it took to give Caroline (Peggy McCay) the serum and have it take effect, it seemed like only an hour or so, considering when Steve had the fight with the guard over Bo in Mexico…. Well math is math and distance is distance. Unless as I said Victor’s jet is somehow able to make it from say Sakovia to New York City, then Steve’s travel time was amazingly fast to be there for when Caroline made her recovery. But then I have to say this is a soap opera. The elements of time and space have no presence. Figures. A good performance by Stephen today though. He can cry like no other, and I did love how he was comforting Victor.

Today’s screencaps are up. Looks like Steve is becoming a little more persistent in his search for Bo (Peter Reckell). Loved Victor’s (John Aniston) shot at him about wanting to impress Kayla (Mary Beth Evans). Though I’d say Steve is trying to do exactly that, I’d say it’s more for Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Ciara (Lauren Boles). By the way, I’m in the process of getting the media site set up. When it’s done, I’ll post. Keep checking back.

I just loved the game of sly Steve played with Victor (John Aniston) today. It was a lot of push and pull, but the capper had to be when Steve made himself at home at Victor’s. That is going to be my picture of the day. When Steve sat down on Victor’s couch and put his feet up on the table…priceless. Steve sure knows that Bo (Peter Reckell) wouldn’t have left his family without letting them know he was safe. And that Steve made out the clues in Bo’s letters means The Patchman is definitely on the case. Good for our one-eyed guy. Also to let you know something. I’ve changed over the gallery to a new layout. I’m not sure if it’s temporary or not. When I started it the idea was for it to be temporary, but looking at it makes me think it might be up for a while. I’m thinking of changing the main site over to something a little more like what the gallery looks like. This theme is sort of old now. It was done almost a year and a half ago and it looks like it. So I’m going to work on it a bit. I hope you like the changes.

Today’s screencaps are added. Love when Steve gets all up in Victor’s (John Aniston) face about Bo (Peter Reckell). Either Victor knows something he isn’t telling, or Steve knows something. Loved Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) welcoming Steve back to Salem. And man is Joey (James Lastovic) getting all Nikolas Cassadine (played on GENERAL HOSPITAL by Tyler Christopher) on Steve. I’m sensing a slight Nikolas vibe in Joey. Casting for this character was spot on. Also, I made a huge mistake when uploading the screencaps from Stephen’s DAYS episodes so far since his return. I had to delete the albums in the gallery and reupload them. So I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused by the confusion. All episodes are back up in the gallery and today’s caps added. As well, I’m also trying to decide about putting up a new media site for Stephen’s work. For any of my old visitors, you know I had a media site that disappeared somewhere around the Jurassic period. For the reasons surrounding why it went belly up, check out this post here. For now though please enjoy the daily screencaps.
