On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Paige was found murdered, and it was the end of the line for her portrayer True O’Brien. Paige is the second murder victim in the latest serial killer storyline on the NBC soap opera, the first being Serena Mason (Melissa Archer).
O’Brien took to her Twitteraccount this week and shared a heartfelt message to her fans as she ended her on-screen run, which actually ended for her some six months ago since DAYS tapes so far in advance. True had related: “Thanks everyone for all the love! On the bright side, some AMAZING and heart wrenching work is coming from
@1CaseyMoss and @KassieDePaiva”
And it was Kassie DePaiva, who at the end of Wednesday’s episode had the moment of the day when Eve insisted on seeing her daughter’s lifeless body in the hospital morgue. Eve is now a grief-stricken mother having no idea what to do next now that her daughter has been taken from her. Later, she comes to see Justin (Wally Kurth) in the D.A. office and falls apart in his arms. Earlier, in the episode a shell-shocked JJ (Casey Moss) had found Paige dead in the shower in her dorm room.
The drama should continue in the days ahead which will also provide plenty of angst, tears, and drama for Moss and DePaiva as they grapple with the ramifications, and their endless guilt over this young woman’s death.
So, what did you think of Kassie and Casey’s performance? Will you miss True? Looking forward to seeing what happens with JJ and Eve? And, who do you think is the Necktie serial killer? If all signs are making it looks like the guilty party is Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn), who would then be the next victim? Share your thoughts below!
