If you have not caught Wednesday and Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, you better catch-up! STAT! There was some amazing work by three actors whose storylines culminated with some riveting scenes, and in each in their own right delivered the goods to the loyal DAYS audience, who has been watching the steady build to these key moments over the last six months or more!
Let’s start with Blake Berris as Nick Fallon, who should be on the top of the list come Daytime Emmy time next year! Berris’ reveal to Maggie Horton (Suzanne Rogers) and to Gabi (Camila Banus) that he was indeed raped and beaten repeatedly by Jensen during his prison term, and thus the rationale for his homophobic behavior and vendetta against Will and Sonny were beautifully performed by Berris. Blake though, has been fantastic throughout the entire storyline and how about when he decided to hand Will his baby girl for the first time?
Eileen Davidson knocked it out the park as the evil Kristen Blake DiMera, when once again her lies and deception caught up with her. She is dumped by Brady, left begging on the floor once again for another man of the “Black” family, and once again blames it all later on Marlena in some uncorked moments where you know Marlena has now fueled the fire and Kristen is going to destroy her! Eileen’s mix of pure evil, psychotic Kristen behavior, sexiness and even in some ways some pathos, showed once again why this role is her best on daytime!
And what can we say about Eric Martsolf as Brady Black? For months we all wanted Brady to get a clue and Martsolf had to continually play being duped! However, when Kristen’s machinations came to light, Martsolf played the devastation, betraya,l and hurt, perfectly. We can only fear that Brady is in for a complete downward spiral, after once again being made to feel like a fool and not knowing who to trust.
So for these reasons, On-Air On-Soaps names the Salem trio of Blake Berris, Eileen Davidson and Eric Martsolf this week’s Power Performances of the Week! You can watch Wednesday’s and Thursday’s episode below, and let us know if you agree with our choices!
