The Diva returns after a week off to dicuss the new beginnings in Salem as the new writing started this past Wednesday. You got a sense of a new direction with great dialogue, more vets and the return of some fun characters. Kate and Andre are certainly the new Super Power Couple taking control of the DiMera family and doing in it hilarious style. The applesause fight is a must see! The murder of Deimos is taking twist and turns with Dario blackmailing both Chad and Abby. It was great to see the return of Xander in all this. Also the scheme that Angelica is hatching looks to be a fun and crazy story thanks to the return of Hattie and Bonnie! Deidre Hall is a riot as Hattie...Marlena who? JJ and Lani go closer but don't count out Eli. Steve gets closer to exposing Tripp for framing Kayla. Rafe arrests his brother. Theo and Claire discuss their relationship. Justin is Andrianne's knight in shining armour as he secretly funds the loan for the Spectator. And a picture posted on social media shows a Jack return. Matt Ashford is back! And as rumor has it many more past favorites will be returning to the show soon. Fasten your seat belts this is going to be a very fun ride!
