With Steffy gone, everything takes yet another turn back to the predictable. Sally stays at Forrester probably to stay in Thomas’ orbit. Quinn wants Wyatt with Flo who has a mysterious father.
Days of Our Lives (1:40:45)
Leo and Diana have officially left Salem but at least they gave interesting exits with Diana telling Ted she saw his dead wife in France and Leo cursing Will all the way to the hospital bed. Brady is the dumbest man alive and then Rex, Sarah is the realest, Eric is a punk and even his mother thinks so but at least they’re not as bad as Rafe/Ted/Hope. Cin gets wet is a sensuous hospital scene that set our TVs on fire!
