The Bay is back with fresh episodes for its all new season which launched on Tuesday afternoon with the release of two installments.
What sparked our interest, in particular was the sexy and visually stunning opening title sequence directed and produced by series stars and show producers, Lilly Melgar (Janice) and Kristos Andrews (Peter). The use of the actors/characters images juxtaposed with stimulating transitions and graphics, and new music tune that fits just right make it a must-see several times over to catch all the moments with the cast.
And it is longtime standout Days of our Lives veterans Patsy Pease and Matthew Ashford who have some scene-stealing moments in episode 1 and 2. Pease debuts as Lola a prison inmate of Sara Garrett’s (Mary Beth Evans) who definitely has some mental issues going on. As for Ashford he returns as the Steve Jensen, who is clearly delighted that his wife Sara has been sent away to prison for killing her grandfather, and tries to use it to his advantage with the press and the Garrett family, only to have it backfire. It’s vintage Ashford, and it was fun to watch.
As the story picks-up from last season, Sara is in the slammer in a “Orange is the New Black” style situation. Janice, who has just been brutually raped, is completely undone and trying to figure out what to do next, and Pete gets the news that he must marry before he can get his hands on a fortune to help get his mother Sara out of jail. Meanwhile alone in her cell Sara recalls when a young Lee Nelson played by Eric Martsolf kept her secret from ever coming to light. How will this all play out and more?
