BONA SERA, DUDES!

Max joins Jeremy and Jett in the passenger area of the plane. Jeremy wants to go over some numbers with Max, so Jett leaves. Max asks to see what's in the trunks.

Bimbie greets Stephanie and Chelsea as they join the big party in the attendant's pad.

The brat and the snot show Bimbie a DVD – it's the new Adam Sandler movie. It's not in theaters yet, but some big studio exec is on the flight and gave it to them. So, apparently NBC has a stake in it.

Bimbie squeals off with the movie and Stephanie and Chelsea get down to business. They sit at a laptop computer and Google Danielle. "She's from Dayton," says Stephanie.

Bo joins the family meeting at the pub. He says he has a warrant out for Tony's arrest. John tells the crowd about Anna's kiss theory. Marlena isn't so sure Anna is wrong. The Tony they knew was brave, romantic and had a sense of humor between killings. John wonders who the hell it is if it isn't Tony.

Stefano gets into the car with Tony and asks him what is so important. Tony tells him he had to eliminate Elvis, "Elvis has left the building permanently."

Jeremy and Sleazo haul a trunk up for Max to inspect. Max opens it up and goes through the clothes. Jeremy asks if they should haul the rest of them up there.

Jett joins the party. The girls make excuses for what they are doing on the computer. "We're downloading porn," says Stephanie. Jett tells them to let him know if they come up with anything juicy. He leaves.

Chelsea asks, "PORN? Is that the best you could come up with?"

Jett slides into the hot tub. The hot couple next to him doesn't appreciate the company and they slide out. "Don't mind me," says Jett."

Hope wonders if Tony could be Andre. Marlena thinks Hope's on to something. John reminds them all Andre's dead. John needs to remind them everyone in the room has been dead one time or another and it doesn't matter. Bo thinks this is right up Stefano's alley. Hope joins the Andre club. Marlena realizes Tony could be out there somewhere and they have to find him.

Stefano is confused. He can't believe Tony eliminated EJ. He rants and gets out of the car. Tony follows and insists Elvis was a liability. Stefano becomes unglued. Tony coaxes him back into the car and makes excuses for his actions. He says now they can claim the twins with Stefano as the head of the family.

Stefano and Tony bicker back and forth. Suddenly... "BONA SERA, DUDES," says Patch as he pops up in the back seat, "What's on the agenda this fine evening? Want to cruise for chicks or what?"

Max says he needed to see for himself, but he doesn't need to see the rest of the trunks. Jeremy and Max express their mutual trust and love. Sleazo gives them the money. Jeremy says he threw in a little something extra for Max. Too bad he didn't throw in a brain. Sleazo hauls the trunk back down.

Jeremy tells Max he was a jerk for cheating on Stephanie. He swears he will make things right.

The girls turn down an invitation to watch the movie. They go back to their Googling. "Here it is," says Stephanie, "Danielle Calder. Born 9/14/78, OMG! The geezer is almost thirty! She went to Ohio State and... OMG! Jett's fiancée is married!"

Kayla asks if they are talking about the same Andre who was the Salem slasher. The sharp bunch all agrees they have to find out.

"That's where Steve comes in," says Bo.

Patch thinks they should check out the casino. Tony tells him to disappear, but he says he has info on the Bradys. Tony backs off and tells him to spill the beans. "They have a crazy hunch about Tony," says Patch, "That he's not who he says he is." Tony chuckles. Stefano stares.

"Who else would I be," asks Tony.

"Let's see," says Patch, "What's that dude's name? Aaron? A... A... Andre!"

Roman looks at the timeline on the computer, "Andre faked his death in '85 and '94." The motley crew discusses the situation.

Hope flashes back to the plane going down, "Daphne was on the plane."

John whimpers, Mommy!"

Hope flashes back to beach scenes with Bo. They remember their dreams and think they made the best of things on the island.

Heather offers Max a beer and asks if he remembers her. Max says he could never forget her smile. Heather was hoping Max would show up. "Well, I'm here," says Max, "And I'm diggin' Vegas."

Sleazo tells Jeremy Max made him nervous with all his questions. He can't believe Jeremy offered to have him check the other trunks. "Max is easy to steer," says Jerko, "All you have to do is keep him in the dark and everything is copasetic."

Max joins Jett in the hot tub.

"Danielle is married to a guy named Mark Prentiss," says Stephanie. Chelsea can't believe she is playing Jett. She wonders what she should do.

Back to the Jacuzzi. Max says, "It's just business."

Jett asks, "What kind of business is it – Touch The Sky or that little side operation you and Jeremy got going?"

Max says, "You've got it wrong. It's only Jeremy who's got it going on the side." He claims he doesn't know what Jett is talking about. Jet says he knows they are trafficking in illegal goods.

Chelsea wonders what kind of friend she would be if she kept the truth from Jett. Stephanie says telling him would end the friendship.

Jeremy walks in. A trail of toxic waste drips behind him. He kisses Stephanie. Chelsea turns to leave. Jeremy asks, "Where are you going. There is some for you too."

When she's finished with the barf bag, Chelsea says, "In your dreams."

Jeremy gives Stephanie a necklace. Chelsea turns around and watches Jett and Max in the Jacuzzi.

Bimbi comes through the door and announces, "David Beckham is at the ice machine!" The lemmings all run squealing toward the sea.

Flashback to Andre dying in quicksand. Hope can't believe he survived. Roman thinks the DiMeras have been messing with their lives too long.

Kayla worries, "Steve should have checked in by now."

Tony brushes off the Andre theory and tells Patch if he wants to leave in one piece he has to explain exactly what it is he is doing.

Stephanie says, "This must've cost a fortune. You should be saving your money... On second thought, check that."

The depressed crowd comes back into the room. One of them scolds Bimbi, "He didn't even look like David Beckham!"

Jett wants to know what's going on. Max says he will tell him, but Jett can't say anything. Max blabs about the designer clothes caper.

"That's it," asks Jett, "Just knock offs?"

"I saw them for myself," says the ever-thorough Max.

Chelsea comes up. She asks to talk to Jett alone.

Patch says he is just having a little fun. Stefano isn't in the mood for fun. Patch suggest and idea. "We can test you to find out if you really are Tony. Ummm... Who played third base for the 1927 Yankees? Oh, wait. That's too easy. It was Joe Dugan. I know! Who won the 1972 World Cup fencing championship?"

Tony screams, "You have five seconds to remove yourself form this automobile! Five... Four... Three..."

Flashback to Aremid and John shooting Tony. "I nearly went to the gas chamber. I became a dead-man-walking because of that lowlife," says John.

"Too bad you didn't come back as a live-man-thinking," says Marlena.

We go through more speculation about whether it was Andre on the island and Aremid. They wonder if it was Andre who convinced Marlena she was the Salem Stalker. It all points to Andre who wants Sami and EJ out of the way. Hope wonders where Tony is, if he isn't here in Salem. Speculation flies. Kayla wonders if the real Tony could do these dastardly things.

Anna struts in, "The man who's here now is not Tony. I shared a bed with Tony. I should know."

We have a starefest.

The bikinis get smaller at the party. Stephanie scolds Jerkemy for checking out the girls. She loves the necklace and loves being spoiled, though. Jeremy apologizes for being a pain lately, "I've been under a lot of pressure starting the airline. But that's just about over and pretty soon we'll be spending so much time together, you'll be sick of me."

Stephanie says, "I could never get sick of you, Jeremy Horton." Tonsil hockey ensues. The way this guy bed-hops, she could get sick from him if they don't use protection.

Chelsea and Jett share the hot tub. Chelsea tiptoes around the Danielle thing, "There is something you should know about her."

Anna says, "The guy I kissed has no sizzle in his steak. Tony was a hopeless romantic." Flashback to Anna and Tony. "To this day nobody has ever kissed me the way he did."

Roman looks down into his lap and... Yep – they're missing., "Please spare us. Did you bring what I asked?" She hands him the envelopes from Tony's letters, but not the letters because they are private. Hotshots Bo and Roman are going to compare the DNA on the envelopes to Tony's DNA. They pass the envelopes around for everyone to see, so the envelopes will have more DNA than all the different life forms in the Adriatic Sea.

Stefano tells Tony to cool it with Patch, "You committed one horror tonight. Are you going to commit another?"

Patch figures out Stefano is talking about the unfounded rumors of EJ's demise. He gives them the news bulletin that EJ is alive, "John Black saved his bony butt. If you guys didn't have me you wouldn't be able to keep up." He tells them to behave and leaves.

Stefano is stunned, "You attempted to murder my younger son. Your brother. You have done irreparable damage to this family. Elvis will never trust us again."

Jeremy is distant. He tells Stephanie to go show off her necklace. She sulks off as Jeremy teams up with Max. He asks Max where he is off to. "The Casino – do you want to go?" Jeremy asks what he and Jett were talking about. "Racing," says Max.

"Why are you lying," says Jeremy, "Give it to me straight."

Chelsea hems and haws, "I'm so sorry. You don't deserve this. Danielle is... already married to a guy named Mark Prentiss."

Tony rants, "John Black! I swear he came out of the coma just to irritate me. Maybe I should snuff him!"

Stefano tells him to shut up, "If you were truly the son that I wanted... you would carry pride in your heart for the DiMera name. You'd have poetry in your soul."

"Poetry? Is that what you want," snorts Tony, "Poetry or health? Poetry or vengeance for your father? Poetry or the day when we can dance on the Brady's graves?"

Anna says it has been 20 years since Tony vanished. If there is a small chance he is alive they have to find him. They all vow to help. John is reluctant. The only Tony he ever knew deserves what he has coming to him. John thinks it over, "But you can count me in." Oh the relief!

Patch bursts onto the scene, "Mission accomplished!" Kayla tackles him. Patch tackles her back.

John says, "Stop groping her and tell us what you got." Patch has come back with a hair. He lifted it off of Tony/Andre's coat when he wasn't' looking, "But you can forget the DNA tests. I guarantee that guy is not Tony. He didn't know who won the 1972 World Cup saber championship? Do you know who it was? None other than Tony DiMera."

Anna gasps, "OMG! What have they done with my Tony?"

John does a dance with his eyebrows, "If this isn't Tony and we can find the real Tony DiMera, we may have the weapon that will bring the DiMeras down for good." Fade out.

Previews
========

EJ says to Sami, "Let's just have an honest conversation, shall we? And yes, I mean honest about everything."

Andre says to Bo, "...or you'll have to say goodbye to your good friend Tony. It's your move, detective."

Stephanie and Jerkemy are in the hot tub. Stephanie mocks, "I think that you're just chicken. Cluck-cluck-cluck..." Jeremy shoves her under, "I said shut the f..."

Jett asks Chelsea, "How would you feel... hanging out with the biggest loser in Vegas? Huh, friend?"

Besides all the filler between Dimera stuff, this sounds great. I'm so glad they are doing something with Steve's character. I love that he's playing both sides of this fued.

But when it comes down to it, it sounds like Tuesday US is going to be great!!

I am shocked the ratings dropped so much last week. Hopefully it was because of the holiday no shows on Thurs & Fri. They need to do something with the Jerkemy storyline or the ratings may further tumble.

Does John really say "Stop groping her"? Can't wait for that one!

Ok, I couldn't believe it when I read it, but this makes the #3 use of "Elvis has left the building". What's the over/under on another one in the next week? ENOUGH.

Somebody needs to feed her and #@!% Anna. Always looking for food and/or sex and making food analogies. Enough already.

Too bad you didn't come back as a live-man-thinking," says Marlena

Love that line Prevuze!

Wonder how Jett's going to handle Chelsea's little bit of news. Surely not just by hanging out.

Wow, Bope really did just fly to Ireland for a 30 second conversation with OMB and didn't find out anything. Maybe they took a left on Elm St. too.

OK come on. Does NO ONE remember that he KIDNAPPED them and kept them on an island, letting everyone think Marlena killed them? How is it this is just OVERLOOKED???

Is it me or does anyone else think Stefano should have had a bigger reaction that his son was dead?
Maybe grief??

Okay now I have to get serious for a minute:
Days of Our Lives at this time has some of the greatest daytime drama acting talents of all time on it's show right now.
Drake Hogestyn, Deidre Hall, Peter Reckell, Kristian Alfonso, Alison Sweeney, Thaao Penghlis, Leann Hunley, Joseph Mascolo, Stephan Nichols, John Aniston, Josh Tayor,
Bill Hayes, Susan Seaforth-Hayes.

These people have, at any time, the ability to give performances that would be worthy of an Academy Award. At yet, they are, week after week given weak scripts, lame storylines, and put in situations that are not only embarrassing but an insult to their talent.
It reminds me of taking the cast of Gone With The Wind and forcing them to perform an episode of Laverne and Shirley.

There was a time when DOOL would have me on the edge of my seat with plot twists that would leave me gasping in shock. Sobbing uncontrollably over the death of a beloved character. Swooning with passion when two star crossed lovers found eachother. REALLY CARING what was going to happen the next day.

It saddens me to see what has happened to my favorite soap. The ratings have fallen because NBC refuses to hire writers who can develop storlines that utilize the true talent of the actors on this show. Instead they have turned it into a parody of itself and in doing so they are losing more and more of their loyal fan base.

As it stands right now, I would rather read Prevuze than actually waste time watching the show.
And the real tragedy is, I know I am not alone.


*Okay I am off now to email this to SOD, SOW and NBC.
Damn I was on a roll there wasn't I?

Anonymous -- I think what they're trying to intimate is that Andre was impersonating Tony even then, that the "real" Tony hasn't been seen for quite some time.

Still, tho, to play the devil's advocate, you must admit the Colleen/Santo story and having all the former characters back is 1,000 times better than anything JER ever came up with. If he was still writing it we'd be spending the ENTIRE SUMMER on an island with Belch and Phimi still looking for Mrs. H's missing ruby! AARGH!! :O If we're too hard on what they're doing now they might just say well we give up and cancel the whole show.

I must've missed something - if the brilliant bunch is just now composing the Andre theory how can Patch be out telling Stef/Tony about it??

Loved the Lucas cartoon and Ellie's picture of the enraptured crowd. HAHAHAHHA

One thing we can always count on and that's Prevuze to get us thru the day. Thanks!

It's been a half an hour and I'm still laughing over Roman checking and, yep - they're missed. HAHAHAHA

Between that and the vasectory clinic, NBC's stake in the new Adam Sadler movie, and every other Prevuism and picture today I can continue my chores very, very happy.

I've been wondering how they could redeem Tony and keep him around in the future given how evil he's been in his last few visits to Salem. Having it be Andre all this time is brilliant. Totally illogical, but brilliant. The old Tony can eventually be found and return - every delicious devious, humorous, sexy bit of him.

After watching yesterday's show I had a couple of comments:

Talk about things around that village never changing! If you'll notice, not only is the Irish chapel the same but the carpet down the aisle looks as new as it does in the flashbacks. BUT WHAT'S EVEN BETTER....the same two plants are sitting on pedistals beside the door!

Clue to Ho & Dope: It's a small Irish village where everyone knows everybody's business. There's probably a half dozen folks around there who know all about what had to be the biggest scandal in their town in the last 50 years, i.e., the novice and the traveling salesman. As long as they are there, why don't the Dopes go ask around town and find out what really happened to Colleen?

Just had to get that off my chest.

Ohhh KOTU....you're thinking much too logically for DROOL.
I think thie summer story line is far better than the drivel we've been subjected to in the last 5 years, however, I agree wtih Deb.
I still have the tape (yes, a vhs tape) of when Patch died. It was heart wrenching. I sat and cried and cried when he died. Any one of these fools can drop off tomorrow and I woudln't care.
There was a point and time when I wouldn't miss an episode of Days because it provided some entertainment and excitment. The characters lives were fun and adventurous. There were classic plots between good and evil, and I rooted for good to win. Now, I desperately want Stefano to crush the impotent Brady's and Hortons.
I've had it with Kate Roberts character. Her character is utterly useless. She's like an annoying little gnat that won't go away. At one point Victor was a force to be reckoned with....but now, he's a bitter old man trying desperately to hold on to some power.
Ugh....ok, I'm stepping off my soap box now....he he he he no pun intended.

OMG when Patch died I cried like I had lost a member of my own family.
The day of his funeral I actually took the day off work to watch it and cried for hours afterwards.

That my friends, is entertainment.

Just a little Catholic observation on OMB in the Irish church -- the very first time we see him enter and bless himself, HE DOES IT WRONG!!!! It's forehead, heart, left shoulder, right shoulder -- he did the shoulders backwards. I believe the Russian Orthodox may bless themselves that way, but not an Irish Catholic. Somebody must have told him about it, though, because he got it right the second day.

And just a thought about who actually killed Colleen -- I wonder if Pete had something to do with it? Like maybe YOMB told his Da that Colleen was off somewhere with Santo, and Pete tracked them down, an altercation ensued, and Colleen ended up being killed? Seems plausible given that temper of his.

Heh, don't post to blogs hardly ever and this late in the day - doubt anybody will even see this!

But I just have to get it off my chest that, since discovering Prevuze about 2-3 weeks ago, I haven't watched one episode of Days! Keep up the great work :) !!

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Deb, your comments sum up my feelings too. Back in the day, when Steve & Kayla met and all the c*ap she went through with him and then when he 'died'. OMG I remember my heart was breaking for weeks. I can remember I taped that episode and kept watching it!
I fell off the Days scene for the last 5-8 years (Marlena being possessed by the devil - did it for me!)... But I started watching last year again and I can honestly tell you - there has not been 1 storyline yet that has actually been that captivating (I wasn't watching when Zach died - and that sounded very emotionally driven!)

But I just don't know what has happened to Days... At one time it was the 'soap to watch' BECAUSE of it's actors! I do feel bad for them because they have stuck with the show for soooo long! You would think that 'Days' producers would WANT to find writers that put the 'ummmph' back into this show!
I have to admit... since Soapnet's time change of 'Days' to 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. I haven't been able to watch the show and rely on Prevuze for my info. I actually do LOVE reading about it (with all of the funny little comments), better than WASTING a whole hour watching it!
At least it feels good to know that it's not just me! I was beginning to think my 'standards' of soap operas was just toooo high! LOL!
Prevuze Keep Up The Great Work!!!! We Love You!

I'm the minority I guess but I think that the Santo/Colleen Sami/Ej SL is the most romantic thing the dool writers has come up with in almost 10 years. (just add a little more depth to it for us so we can savour it, not blink and miss it...lol) I love that they are finally listening to us and giving us a good ole Days romance. It's the only SL I watch for now. I boycotted the show for 3 years during the Marlena Serial Killer nonsense, but I have seen such a transformation since JER left. The actors even seem more into their characters then past years. It's nice to see that sparkle behind the eyes again. I just hope that the writers keep up with the romantic/mysterious side that Days of old, was capivatingly awesome.

So does this mean Andre was the one who loved Kristen all those years back? It fits with the idea that the real Tony's been gone for twenty years. But if you add in EJ who was born around the time of that storyline and who is in his thirties right now, it gets really confusing.

Didn't they say that Kristen and Tony grew up together because Stefano adopted her and Peter? And wouldn't Stefano know his own son? After all this time, only Anna has the slightest clue this guy may not be him, all because of a kiss and about five minutes of conversation?

I read that Stefano knows it's Andre, and that Tony's marooned on some island on Stefano's orders so that Andre can 'take over' as the DiMera heir.

I like Santo/Colleen (even though it's the slowest moving reveal EVER), and while the writing's got a way to go, you GOTTA give it credit 1. for being better than JER drivel, and 2. listening to the viewers. JER prided himself in disappointing fans. Sheffer, who inherited a sucky steve/kayla reunion, has worked to rehab Steve back to our fun guy. Those tweens, though...
