Once again, Jennifer hammered poor Chad with the fact that he was unfit to care for his own child on Days of Our Lives. Thankfully, she admitted she wasn’t fit either and came up with an alternate plan – Lucas and Adrienne should take him in.
Of course, Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) didn’t even ask the engaged couple if they were willing to jump into that responsibility, but no worries – she’d cross that bridge later. Once Belle (Martha Madison) heard about the idea, even she advised her friend/boss/client that he should at least give it some thought. After all, she knows he was considering giving up the custody battle and handing the baby over to his grandmother before he heard about Jennifer’s fall off the wagon. Chad (Billy Flynn) had spoken to Abigail’s “spirit” earlier in the episode, asking for clarity from her on what would be best for their son. Was this lifeline from Jennifer the answer he was looking for?
It Takes a Village
What is wrong with these people?! Chad isn’t inept or incapable of loving his son. He’s a loving father who was dealt a shock when the woman he loved and the mother of his son was suddenly “killed” in a plane crash. Is there any reason someone can’t step up and just help him through these early days/weeks of mourning until he’s back on his feet? Say, you know…maybe the kid’s grandmother? Instead of trying to steal Thomas away, Jennifer, why not move in to Chad’s house temporarily and help him share the duties of raising Thomas until he has things under control? Sorry, we don’t mean to make sense here or anything.
Going in the Right Direction
Spoilers for next week at least give us hope that Chad will find his footing and fight for the right to raise his own son. On Tuesday, he should be telling Lucas and Adrienne that he changed his mind and wants to keep his son. It’d be great if they, along with Jennifer, would support his decision and help him be the best dad he can. Isn’t that what Abigail would want, after all?
