    No kidding. I never heard that. McDonald Carey was da bomb! Aras was good looking but he should never have won Survivor.

    Sherman...
    Same here...haven't watched in a year (because it's been a year since I stopped closed-captioning it).

    I will point out that "Kate is furious that Sami is engaged to name of one of her sons" isn't much of an update. :D

    Chris, thanks for the recap.
    So how many times has Jack been declared legally dead?

    And add Chelsea to the list of fast growing children (she should really be about 10)

    So, I assume that the guy with the eyepatch that Jack is calling "Steve" is Patch?

    Yep.

    They're brothers. Jack was orphaned and adopted by the Deveraux family (corrupt politicans... a Senator) as an infant but the two of them were reunited by the help of their sister (who Patch knew about) Adrianne.

    Complicating matters was the fact that at one point Jack was also in love with Kayla... who Patch ended up marrying.

    (and who's also returning any day now)

    OK. I haven't watched in years. But upon hearing that Patch and Kayla were returning, I gave it a spin.

    What is Jack dying of?

    Frankie is back?!?!? And a lawyer?!?!? He's still short. ;)

    Hope looks... well... anorexic. Apparently she hasn't been eating any of Mrs. Horton's famous donuts.

    And most perplexing... Kayla's a doctor?!?!? :eek:

    Jack is dying of an incurable (until now) serious life-threatening illness ;)

    Seriously - they've never specified.

    He also went off a bridge into a freezing, raging river (last he was seen in Salem) so that didn't help matters. We don't really know how he got from there to the "hospital".

    Before he "died" he asked Frankie to stay and take care of Jen so she wouldn't be alone without him. Jen knows about this and therefore the two of them have fallen in love and are already engaged.

    Isn't Jo married to Vern... Jack's old editor at the Spectator?

    So sometimes (rarely) we hear them say that "Jo and Vern" are going to babysit?

    News to me too.

    Have they ever said what she did while living in LA? (along with Kimberly)

    So who remembers the debacle that was Shane and Kayla?

    The viewers were so repulsed by the pairing that it was short lived. You don't take 2 of the most beloved super couples and mix them up! What were they thinking?

    Anyone care to guess who EJ really is? Some of the speculation (not a spoiler--I'm a spoiler hater) on the net is he is (just in case)

    Elvis (son of Stefano DiMera and Kristen's twin)!!

    well then, he'd be another rapidly aging child as he should only be about 9 or 10 in real life.

    Ugh, Hope becomes more and more shrill, bitchy, and unlikeable every day.
    My SP will not last the month at this rate.

    You know, Abby must not have inheirted the SORAS gene, because her character is probably the only one that hasn't goen victim to it. I think Abby is actually suppose to be older than Philip and somehow Philip zoomed by Abby in age.

    I had stopped watching Days for a long while. Personally, I can't stand this Bo/Hope thing going on any longer. But I had to start watching again this week for the Steve/Kayla reunion. I have to tell you, I loved the flashbacks the other. It just reminded me why Steve and Kayla are my all-time favorite couple.

    I was wondering if Soap Net was planning on doing a special on Steve and Kayla. They did one on Bo and Hope through the years a while back ago. It would be great to see some of the essential Steve and Kayla episodes...including that beautiful cruise ship wedding :)

    I don't mind the rapid aging but I do mind when younger people are suddenly older than people they're not supposed to be.

    Philip was, indeed, born after Abby. And suddenly he's older than her.

    For some reason I find all this craziness entertaining. Like when Abby shows up for a jury trial and the judge just decides he is going to forgo the jury and come up with a verdict on the spot. Completely unrealistic, but part of the reason why I watch this show.

    The "trial" was ridiculous!

    They could have had a semi-decent story for a few weeks and actually have had a trial.

    Not on DOOL, though... they just move right along, getting it over with in a single show...

    Which is really out of character for Riely because he loves to just drag things out forever. In fact, this whole progression with Steve and Kayla's return is really surprising to me.
