In the TV show “Days of our Lives,” Dimitri, possibly a criminal mastermind’s offspring, seemingly disregards his background and upbringing upon meeting Leo, who is utterly foolish.
Despite their incompetence, they consistently managed to deceive the entire Salem Police Force repeatedly.
This is just one of many issues plaguing the Salem PD.
Days of our Lives: Clear the Decks
From “Nurse Leora” helping Dimitri escape and leaving a handcuffed Kayla in his place, to their Halloween shenanigans, to Dimitri getting Jada’s gun away from her, knocking her out, and stealing her car!
What a Keystone Cops level of ineptitude. Sure, they have Leo at the precinct right now, but how long will that even last?
Surely, he’ll slip away as he always does.
Not helping much is the newly elected Mayor of Salem Paulina Price.
First off, were we the only ones suspicious how she got her results first thing in the morning, while all other electoral districts had to be silly and wait for actual votes to be counted?
Secondly, she boasted about how she fired Melinda for incompetence — but mostly because she just didn’t like her.
Yet, Melinda was handed near-impossible tasks trying to get convictions.
Rafe and Jada were handed gift after gift. First, an injured Dimitri was handcuffed to a hospital bed.
How hard could it be to bring in someone that injured? And then, Jada had a gun on both Dimitri and Leo, only to fall for the old, “Oh, my wrists can’t fit standard cuffs” ploy.
Let’s also talk about bringing on former henchman Harris.
Sure, he’s working on the right side of the law right now but isn’t his kinda-sorta-girlfriend committing crime after crime?
Also, let’s not forget it wasn’t so long ago he was programmed to kill. Hmm…maybe they need to rethink that choice.
Throw in the beat cops who didn’t spot Leo and Dimitri not just in their oh-so-clever ghost disguises on Halloween, but also their holding up in a sleazy motel.
Are sleazy motels not the first place beat cops are supposed to look for suspects?
Paulina has real just cause to clean house and fire the lot of them. It’s time to start fresh.
No one at the SPD can manage to snatch up a suspect, never mind get a conviction. Enough is enough!
Days of our Lives airs weekdays on Peacock+ in the U.S. and The W Network or Global TV App in Canada.
