Galen Gering, you broke my heart in a million pieces. It was so terrific to get to see you do something other than be the cop, FBI guy, or construction worker! This past week, in sensational episodes of Days of our Lives. Galen as Rafe and Alison Sweeney as Sami, delivered touching, raw and heartbreaking performances as parents’ grieving the death of their little baby girl, Grace. Even though Sweeney, delivered raw peformances day in day out, (sans the Sami histrionics), it was Gering who really touched me.
In the scenes it was Rafe who was Sami’s rock, yet he let himself feel the loss and pain of the little girl, he wanted to love and be a father to. To watch Rafe sometimes quietly, sometimes very emotional, go through the process of grieving the loss of a loved one seemed so real! Alison Sweeney as well pulled out all the stops to make this compelling week of soap watching. Kudos!
Till next time,
