First DAYS blew off Halloween. And that's okay. I mean, AMC and Y&R made up for the loss, but to not address Thanksgiving in any way was just a bummer. I look forward to the holidays on soaps, where everyone buries the hatchet for a day, but there's lots of family drama going on anyway. I still remember the days when soaps aired original episodes on Thanksgiving (and getting to my aunt and uncle's in time to watch GENERAL HOSPITAL was always a priority). Since DAYS is big with Christmas, I'm sure they'll be the traditional ornament hanging at the Hortons, but I can't say fall has been a festive season in Salem.... Switching networks, I really liked Jack's journey during the "Never Surrender" tour on ATWT. I have a soft spot for "CarJack" but I couldn't help but muse that Janet catching Jack and Carly in bed together and hurrying off seemed very familiar. Maybe it's because when Julie Pinson (Janet) was playing Billie on DAYS, Hope caught Bo and Billie in bed together in a motel ... and left quickly. Déjà vu, indeed.
