51 August 12th, 2013 THIS WEEK on DAYS: Kristen Is Pregnant! What Do You Think Of The Plot Twist?

Courtesy/NBC

After all of us thought that Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson) could never conceive a child, it looks like all of that has changed!

This week on Days of our Lives, Kristen gets the shock of her life when she discovers she is pregnant!  And, this comes after she is just reunited with Brady Black (Eric Martsolf).

So, does this mean that Kristen is pregnant with Father Eric’s child (Greg Vaughan)? Did Kristen’s evil plan to destroy Marlena backfire on her? Or, ultimately give her the one thing she has always wanted besides revenge on the good doc?

In addition, it looks like the revelation of the pregnancy will now have once friends,  Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Kristen sharing with each other the news, and Jen wanting to help her with dealing with this.  Only Jen has no idea about her cruel scheme perpetrated on Father Eric!

Watch this week’s NBC promo for Days of our Lives after the jump! Then, share your thoughts on if you think Kristen being pregnant is a good plot twist?  What do you think should happen next?  Will she pass her unborn child off as Brady’s? Can the child really be Eric’s?

    Oh man the story is getting better and better. And the fact that Jenn is involved without knowing what’s going on! Everything will blow up before she leaves and that will be must see TV! Makes you wonder if she’ll leave town with the baby. I wish she wasn’t leaving!

    If she caries full term, she will be gone before the birth because ED’s last
    airdate is in november.

    I love Eileen Davidson in this role but, this is just too much. No offense to her but the character is a bit old to be conceiving a child at this point. Especially given her inability before. I get the shock value and the story potential but don’t think it is more than typical soap schlock.

    I agree with you Chaz…this really is TOO much.

    I think that Kristin will lose the baby and that will be the catalyst to her leaving the show. She’s going to go whack-a-doodle again and get sent off to the crazy farm until Eileen is ready to come back for another visit.

    Perhaps it is a miracle child– I mean she did rape a priest– holy sperm and all that. Most likely it will be a demon seed with Kristin as the mother, a raped priest as the father, Stefano as the grandfather, and EJ and Sami as its aunt and uncle– this poor child is going to need therapy before it is even born. So yeah it soap schlock, but schock sometimes works.

    can you imagine both Kristen and Nicole having kids…. and watching these two mothers and child involved ? Yikes… now these are two fierce, feisty, stay out of my way… charged Up.

    I don’t know… what’s going to become of Kristen… i’m in turmoil… that so many are vested in realism.

    Kristen is evil laden. still full of intrigue. she’s an older woman having a baby… I hope this brings her rest… ie: her mothering kicks in and she lets go her past.

    dang! I really do hope she’s just taking time off…. would make for good mystery… if she leaves before the baby is born… that way when she comes back…. she’ll have that bond with Marlena… set in stone.

    IE: Marlena telling Brady….

    Kristen is never going to change. Her pathology is definite…. sociopath.

    in the meantime… Victor is telling Brady…. all you see is sex.

    its too bad what’s happening to the DiMera’s….

    I wish TPTB would hire Jason Brooks… in the advent exit of Kristen and Chad.

    DAYS – SONY – NBC, hire Jason Brooks to ruffle and keep alive Salem.

    can we say excite and sensations for Jennifer and Hope?

    judith replied

    With Melissa Reeves on Days it will NEVER be ever Jason Brooks on it !
    And like it or not Jennifer and the actress playing her is far more important to the show and TPTB than Jason Brooks and even his former character of Peter Blake- Dimera will ever be. Maybe they could recast Peter but certainly not with the same actor..mark my words.

  3. Joanne says:

    I think Eileen Davidson is doing an awesome job! but lets wait and see how far long she is than we will no exactly who is the childs dad. I honestly think it is Brady. and if not this will be her exit. I heard she is leaving sept

    Oh that is too funny for words– but you do realize there are those under a certain age that are saying what the ??????? because they have no idea what you are referring to, which makes it even funnier. Thanks for making my day

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    for those who dont get my joke…actor Ralph Waite(Father Matt) starred as John Walton in the family series The Waltons from the 1970s to the 1980s(with some time off) On the show he was married to Olivia and had the 7 children i mentioned…lol

    don’t let Kristen losing the baby… be the catalyst for her leaving Salem.

    Give her that child to strengthen herself.

    just like Nicole is ready.

    From a story line point of view– whose the daddy guessing game is a soap staple, so I don’t really blame the writers for going there. I get the potential of Marlena possibly having a grandchild with her mortal enemy as the mommy too tempting to pass up.
    However, I hate it when soaps have woman who cannot have children, suddenly turn up pregnant– it is a disservice to the real issue of infertility and right up there with chronically ill characters suddenly being cured as one of my pet peeves about soaps.
    As for being a shock– not for fans who predicted this would happen the minute she bedded Eric.

    Welcome back. Yeah still in the trenches of soap watching– the good, the bad and the ugly, I am watching it all. Was shaking my head in disbelief on Y&R today when Sharon faked a sprain ankle in order to have Nick hold her. What is she in ninth grade? I can’t believe how much they are dumbing down that poor character– I’m still hoping there is method to this madness and something good will come out of this—like maybe the show will get so bad Sony will have no choice but to fired those who are ruining this show worse than MAB did.

    k/kay replied

    Well I sit down and actually watched Y&R yesterday the birth of Chelsea’s baby was the DUMBEST birth ever done, they should be ashamed. And the comment that the baby was big because she had a steroid shot and well it was truly middle school play quality sad . We had an article in our newspaper this morning on a young lady who has MS she is 21 was diagnosed at age 14 what her feet look like and what she is going thru needless to say I am sending the article to CBS/ Y&R and tell them they should be ashamed to make a mockery out of a serious illness. Soaps need to stay away from social illness’s if you are going to not be informative. Someone needs to get their attention but maybe this is what they want. Anyway I am very disappointed with this show.

    They also are doing a mockery of a very serious, real disease like manic depression (being bipolar) with the absolute disgusting writing of the Sharon character right now..yuke.

    Eileen Davidson is a wonderful actress, but having her conceive strains credulity because this character is obviously past childbearing age. But hey it’s a soap, whatever

    All I know is I hope she has the baby because another Brady or Black for down the line with a Dimera as the Mommy is going to be great!

    Ericolefan replied

    The only thing great would be if Kristen had a Black baby because it would actually make Brady Black somewhat more interesting to watch. Adding the Kristen dramatics would just make it better.

    On the other tossing Kristen into Eric life again claiming they have a child would not be good. I have the feeling the writers would write it worst than how they wrote Chloe when she came back to town to announce Daniel was Parker father than Kristen might be similar regardless of whoever it is, but much much worse with Eric.

    Saw that one coming a mile away. Eileen is a good actress but all that sex she was involved in with Brady was a real turn off and to top it off they have her sleep with Father Eric and NOW she’s preggers, it’s truly insulting I tell ya!!!!

    I so wish the show had not chosen to go down this route. It is lazy storytelling, not to mention disgusting and warped. I don‘t understand the decision to involve Kristen in a story with two men who are a full generation younger than her. Second, Kristen is well past child bearing years. That point I can live with….after all, if the 60 ish Rachel on Another World could give birth to twins…well…soap ages are just plain weird. That does not bother me so much. But third….people…she RAPED a priest!! A 50 something woman RAPED a 30 something priest. That‘s one potential father. The other potential father is her former stepson. I would love to be a fly on the wall in these writer‘s meetings where they say…“Okay…how can we appeal to our core audience of females who want romance and love and fantasy? How can we get those ratings?? I KNOW! Let‘s have a male priest get raped by a female psychopath!!“ i just don‘t get it. Soaps have strayed SO far from what made them successful, and people really wonder why ratings are so down. DAYS used to be the gold standard for supercouples and romance and They had couples that viewers passionately rooted for. I wish they would get back to that!

    Sad but true– the art of telling a good old-fashioned love story seems to have been forgotten, not just in soaps, but in movies, and in books. I don’t really blame soap writers, I think it is the times we live in and the culture that is changing what is consider romance— but am with you, I loved the golden age of the supercouple– those were some great stories that I am glad I got to enjoy at the right age and time to enjoy them in.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Rachel wasnt in her 60s…Vicki Wyndam who played Rachel was only 52 when the character of Rachel had twins during this 1997 storyline…which is medically possible and has happened in real life. E.D. (Kristen) is around that age but most likely playing slightly younger. But your right about the supercouple and romance part which is sorely lacking in all soaps. Ive watched Days since the 1960s and it used to be one of the most romantic soaps, beginning with Doug and Julie who were daytimes most romantic couple in the 1970s…i still consider them the no. one romantic soap couple of all time.

    JEM replied

    Ya doug and julie were cool. Still are.

    judith replied

    Yeah Doug and Julie with Doug sleeping with her mother and having her child, you know..Hope ! And the first real Days supercouple was Bill and Laura Horton with Bill raping Laura and by that creating a child.. Mike.. Laura passing the child as Mike Horton (Bill’s brother) then Mike trying to kill Bill…Bottom line soap operas were always twisted..yep there was the staple story of the Hero who save his damsel from the villain in exotic islands but it was not the only core element of these Daytime soaps…

    judith replied

    Mickey Horton and Mike his fake son and real son of Bill i meant..these same names are confusing..lol

  13. Ericolefan says:

    I do not like the storyline where Kristen raped and drugged Father Eric Brady, but since you asked my thoughts about it I’ll give it. Hopefully Kristen will find out she is miscarried or better yet that she was not pregnant in the first place.

    I would not mind the baby being Brady Black’s because that would give the show reason to bring back John later when his grandchild showed up in Salem. As for the other possibility there is no way I would ever accept that as a fan. Kristen would use the child as a puppet to try to control Eric and Marena’s lives, so no way. There is too much of a backlash now.

    Lois replied

    There is no way I want Kristen to have either John or Marlena grandchild, if that were to happen I would want them to go to court to get custody of the child, because Kristen is a sociopath, I would also push to have Kristen admitted to a mental institution for life!

    This has been my dream storyline for weeks. I just wish Eileen was not leaving. This provides upcoming story for years. The fallout with Marlena, John, Eric, Brady, Jennifer, Nicole, EJ, etc. I am ready to see Eric leave the priesthood and be a good leading man for Nicole or maybe Chishelle. I also think it is time for Nicole to have a family. Can we bring back the charcter of Brandon and Taylor?

    Euh NO Taylor was a disaster, Brandon ok..i did not mind him even loved him with Sami, above all before his affair with his step mother Lexie..lol

    Had to reply here Judith…you replied to me about Doug and Julie and said Doug slept with her mother…Addie by the way…you made it sound like the had an affair…Doug married Addie and they had Hope…and as for the romance part i was refering to how Doug used to sing to Julie, and how the always looked at each other…sure soaps have their twisted moments like you said but at the same time the used to also took time out for a little romance as well…but its a rarity in todays soaps!!!

    I love the story and wish she wasn’t leaving !! Like others said earlier, so many stories could have come down the road ! Everyone throws around the “rape” term,, He wasn’t tied down and gagged, most scenes he was on top and the aggressor saying how much he wanted her ! not the other way around. The show is so good right now, I have been watching every day which almost never happens LOL

    Drugging someone into having sex with you when they wouldn’t had sex with you if they hadn’t been drugged– is rape. They are not in the proper frame of mind to give consent– just like a guy slipping a drug into a woman’s drink at a party— And Eric was protesting that is why Kristen had to edit those parts out of the tape to make it look like he wanted it—
    -On soaps they are two classes of sexual assault — those that resemble real life–based on situations that actually could happen, like Nick being raped in prison. And the other kind is unrealistic– situations that don’t really happen in real life, but are used to get two characters who wouldn’t normally have sex to have sex– ie Kristen and Father Eric. These unrealistic types are plot devices, in a larger story, but not the focus of the story. The first type, the realistic ones are the story.
    It is a shame that soaps feel the need to use a sexual assault as a plot device, but Days more than any other is known for it, especially with the Dimeras– but even as plot devices, those assaults are still technically rape.

    yep but they do it on EVERY soaps not only Days, you should see GH and its rape’s obsession..almost every storylines have a rape plot point on it..

    I think this is a way for Kristen to sneak back and switch her Eric baby
    and Nicole’s Brady baby. Kristen will make Nicole look like the rapist.

    I is beyond absurd. I can’t wait for the character to leave and she better do so discovering she is really in MENOPAUSE, BC I don’t buy Days immaculate conception, she could get pregnant years ago, the odds are only much higher given her age.

    It is not ‘immaculate conception’ since dear Kristen had sex..and a lot at that..Kristen is definitely not Mary..lol
