One of the most delightfully complex characters on Days, Victor is also one of the most audacious: “So I stole your eggs howevermanyyearsago, who cares right?” He’s lucky Maggie’s too nice to try what so many other women have in the past. We could (and probably will) make a Retro FriDAYS about all his marriages at some point, but today we focus on his tumultuous relationships with the fairer sex…
Will Caroline shoot Victor? (in 1986)
Kate helped set all this in motion to put Victor six feet under
Victor tells Nicole how it’s gonna be in this clip
So she gets her uppance the only way she knows how: Erratically and half-assed
I was working on a different Retro FriDAYS concept when I came across this discovery and had to share.
Y’all remember Full House, right? The show that made us think Bob Sagat was a decent person?
What about DJ’s weird friend Kimmy Gibbler?
Looooooongtime DOOL fans may know actress Andrea Barber from before that. A role she originated: Carrie Reed.
A Dr. Tom Horton appearance in this video, which also features Josh “Roman Brady” Taylor (playing Det. Chris Kositchek) talking on the phone with Wayne Northrup, who used to play Roman Brady. Whoa.
Roman and Abe put together a crib, with help from Carrie
Even back then, the kids were just a sideshow. But here’s a clip for all you BOPE fans:
Hush, little baby.
Oh no! I hope she’s OK!
But things apparently went well for OG Carrie after her run in primetime: She retired from acting, had two kids, went to the same undergrad college as Richard Nixon and lives in England, where she got her master’s degree in women’s studies.
Seems like she had a much easier go of it post-Full House than this guy (NOT SAFE FOR WORK)
H/T Youtube user Ariel61959 for the incredible playlist!
We here at salemonSalem.com applaud anyone who can retire early and control their own destiny, so good for Renee Jones on her impending retirement after playing Lexie DiMera Carver for two decades.
Lexie may not have stolen the show in recent years, but she’s been part of some crucial stories over her run, spanning from 1987 to today, with a break in the early 90s. Her shady family background only exacerbated the internal battle between her angels and demons – an ambiguity that came to define her character. You probably already know she was the longest-running black female character on television – no small feat. TV Guide says Jones’ departure is the end of the line for Lexie, but who knows?
This week’s Retro FriDAYS is a tribute to a vaguely psychic MD who used to be a cop and, before she died dies, was Salem’s First Lady. What else could an illegitimate child of Stefano DiMera ask for?
There was her off-and-really off relationship with Sami…
(skip to 5:27 for violence)
File this under Awkward Man on Woman Violence at 5:40
Her troubled relationship with her mother, Celeste
And her marriage to Abe
You can’t talk about Lexie without talking about affairs. As her Wikipedia article noted, “Sami has blackmailed Lexie on a number of occasions due to Lexie’s repeated adultery.”
Here’s a couple:
Tek & Lex
Lexie and Brandon go clubbin’ with Nicole
Then Brandon gives Lexie a clubbin’ IfYaKnowWhatIMean
And finally, a video here just for its innate awesomeness. Lexie meets Marlo in this epic look back. NerdChloe! Victor! Bope! Stefano! Belle! Marlena! Alice! Shawn!
Over the years, Days of Our Lives badguys have had plenty of loyal assistants. In honor of Ivan’s return (he really did have the whole “madam” routine down better than anyone), here is a look at some of the best errand boys. Who am I forgetting?
Back when Tony DiMera was Andre (was that how it was? it gets so difficult to remember) he, to quote one of today’s hottest pop stars, gotta have a bowl, gotta have cereal. Preferably some that’s GRRRREAT!
