Double duty

03Jul07

We break from regularly scheduled catch-up programming for a little light-hearted Days spoiler discussion.

I was going to put this under the Spoiler page, but really there’s nothing big about these comments, just mainstream media stuff and I don’t have any story details, so stop now everyone who really wants to be totally, completely unspoiled. Everyone else, go forward.

You’re clearly not cool in Salem unless you’re doing double-character duty in coming weeks. Alison Sweeney plays Sami and Colleen, James Scott plays EJ and Santo, and, most gloriously, Thaao Penghlis plays Tony and Andre DiMera.

I actually think the Colleen/Santo story could be really good. The details of the story itself are not yet clear to me, but it’s a great way to kill two fabulous birds with one stone: (a) background on the DiMera/Brady feud which has raged without explanation through my entire Days-watching history; and (b) playing up on the Sweeney/Scott chemistry while avoiding the whole rapist/victim/super-couple split that comes with Sami and EJ (not that I don’t think they won’t continue to go there too).

But the more exciting part to me is the return of Andre DiMera. Again. And some more. I didn’t see the 1995 return of the character, but that doesn’t matter, because I completely remember his first run which ended with death by quicksand in the first story I properly followed in Days.

Andre is a classic ridiculous multi-dying soap villain. If you don’t believe me, have a read of his hilarious Soap Central bio. (Note, also, the number of additional times Stefano being in a state of near-death is mentioned).
