Days of Our Lives Review: Another Day, Another Act of Violence

I was never as much of a Sami fan as I was when she confronted Hope. Sami can be selfish and impulsive, and she usually goes way over the top with some well-intentioned scheme that everyone but her can see is going to blow up in her face. But on Days of Our Lives during the week of 8-27-18, Sami displayed strength and determination when Hope chose to keep her in custody and harass her about what had happened to Marlena to get revenge for Sami and Rafe's one night stand in 2017. It's about time someone other than Ben stood up to Salem's most corrupt commissioner. Hope's behavior has been out of control for a while, and this whole thing demonstrated that she was just as selfish as Sami, if not more so. After learning that Marlena had been shot, Rafe rushed off to arrest Sami, but at least he had the compassion to allow her to have a moment with her mother before he took her to the station. At the station, Sami demanded a lawyer, which nobody took seriously. Instead, Hope "interrogated" Sami, informing her that she would not be allowed to go back to the hospital unless she confessed and insisted that her claim to have been abducted and drugged was just a way of blaming other people for her own bad decisions. And Sami called her on every bit of her BS, fully aware that Hope was using the power of her badge to punish Sami for having slept with her boyfriend. I don't know how Rafe mansplained this to you, but I was upset over losing Will and he was upset over losing you and we were just two exes trying to comfort each other. Sami Permalink: I don't know how Rafe mansplained this to you, but I was upset over losing Will and he was... Added: August 31, 2018 I don't think the writers know what the term "mansplained" means, and I could have done without that dig at feminism, but I was so glad to see an actual strong woman on canvas! Sami was not going just to let Hope bulldoze over her rights, and she made that clear. I just wish the writers hadn't saddled Sami with this nonsensical insistence that finding EJ was the most important thing in the world. Sami is such a fierce, independent woman; why does she need to fall victim to the same garbage every woman in Salem does about not being able to live without a man? Plus, I agree with Jennifer that EJ wasn't good for Sami and she'd be happier with someone who didn't come with so much negative drama.

I also wish Sami's children weren't off-screen. Since there is no EJ and Sami has apparently been missing for a while, who is taking care of them? A story about a pre-teen or teenaged Johnny or Allie resenting having to be parents to their sister Sydney or coming to Salem to allow Lucas to take care of them until Sami i..

Wynonna Earp Season 3 Episode 7 Review: I Fall to Pieces

On Wynonna Earp Season 3 Episode 7, our favorite gun-slinging, occasionally head-butting, women-forward dynamic duo Wynonna and Nicole are at it again -- yes, we're blessed with WynHaught-ness. And boy, it's worth it. It's been a while since we've had a full-on WynHaught episode, and the last notable time was the one with Wynonna and Nicole at Pussy Willows. Waverly: Also… when was the last time you went home? Or ate? Jeremy: Oh, that depends. What day is it? Waverly: We’re gonna need to get you a falafel. Permalink: We’re gonna need to get you a falafel. Added: September 01, 2018 Now, the duo is back drinking and fighting together again (Did the writers take note of the crazy fan reaction to drunk Nicole? I think so.), but this time, literally tied together -- with chained handcuffs. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! This again captures the crux of true Wynonna Earp humor (take a shot every time Wynonna calls Nicole something other than her actual name) in the best of ways while still throwing in two very emotional scenes between Wynonna and Doc as well as Nicole and Nedley. View Slideshow: 15 Shows with Brilliant and Catchy Soundtracks Nicole: Push with your legs! Wynonna: Shut up with your mouth! Permalink: Shut up with your mouth! Added: September 01, 2018 It shines by using a formula, which the show is not always known for doing, but makes up for it with its humor. Nevertheless, by focusing on Wynonna and Nicole (with the understanding that there's plenty of time for Waverly, Doc, Jeremy, and the rest later, not to worry), we're indulged with a fully-fledged story that blossoms in all its hysterical and buddy comedy glory. Nicole: You have no police training, you’re terrible with authority, you’re not even qualified to run a Chipotle! Wynonna: Guaca-cuse me? Permalink: Guaca-cuse me? Added: September 01, 2018 We go in and we find tweedle-dee, tweedle-douche, we bring them out, 5 minutes tops, we get the keys, she’ll never notice, we’re good to go. Let’s go! Wynonna Permalink: We go in and we find tweedle-dee, tweedle-douche, we bring them out, 5 minutes tops. Added: September 01, 2018 Waverly and Jeremy only act as supporting players this episode, which could have ultimately been fleshed out more, given that they all feed into WynHaught's story and it's not a Bulshar-centric story. Similarly, Doc and Michelle's story only serves to set up future episodes and barely lingers onscreen. Still, despite past episodic madness, it's a joy to see a story like this play out onscreen. View Slideshow: 27 Wholesome Characters Who Deserve the World It's also great to see the story truly honoring the loose ends that were not yet tied up -- including the Cult of Bulshar (featuring an extraordinarily emotional scene between Nedley and Nicole -- can Nedley stay on the show?), Bobo, and ..
