So, I rewatched the Kiriakis family scenes from yesterday because I thought I might’ve been too harsh. And I kinda hated not loving a big group scene w/ 1 of my favorite Days families lol. I still didn’t like how Sonny’s reasons for not moving in came off. He was almost petulant. And Sonny has never been petulant. The Broe across the room hello was still my fav part lmao. Brady as the voice of reason didn’t bother me as much, mostly because he ended up defending Uncle Philip & Chloe lol. I think I zeroed in on my major problems.
1) None of these men are first on any of the villains’ lists. Yes, Victor is their common enemy, but none of them plan to come after him first. Not even Xander. 2) Deimos’ “my house” bs. Him inviting ppl (Justin, Victor) to live in a house that used to be their home for years & years before he stole it was ridiculous and annoying.
3) Maggie & Theresa’s absences. They bug me, but they deserve to be part of family meetings. The whole ‘we must protect our wives and children’ thing was wildly sexist.
4) Deimos in general. They all hate/don’t trust Deimos, so why is he even there? Because it’s technically his house now? I have no doubt that Brady, Justin, Sonny, and Philip could overpower Deimos and literally kick his ass out the front door lol. I doubt even Maggie would put up much of a fuss over his departure lol.
Okay, I am LIVING for this Kiriakis family strategy scene. All my Kiriakis dudes together in the Kiriakis living room. The quips! Sonny being sassy and stubborn. Victor’s reveal that Clyde was behind Sonny’s stabbing was very well done. Good, good. Though, much as I’m loving the show for shoring up all my Kiriakis peeps, I can’t help but suspect that having everyone move in together is just the show’s way of saving money by reducing the sets lol.
