Days of Our Lives & Passions headwriter, James E. Reilly has passed away at the age of 60; The Creator of The Best TV Show Ever, 'Passions,' Has Died. Please refer to our discussion here if you're unacquainted with the wonderful madness that is (was) Passions. ("In 2002, Julian and Timmy [the Talking Ventriloquist Doll] set out on a journey in the magical land of Oz as Theresa was 'executed' for Julian's 'murder' "; "Passions also broke new ground in 2007 with its portrayal of Vincent as a hermaphrodite who becomes pregnant with his own father's son." This is not even to speak of the Salem Stalker/Crazy Love Cage Jan storyline on Days that I recapped for a few months there.)
