The Streak

Stephanie and Chelsea sit in the Jacuzzi. As the water becomes increasingly acrid, they discuss Max' animosity toward Jeremy and the way he does business. Stephanie talks about how sweet and attentive Jeremy is, and shows Chelsea he bought her another present. Chelsea wonders what Jeremy must be feeling guilty about now, "Some guys are like that when they have done something wrong... they get all sweet and attentive."

Stephanie asks, "You mean like Nick got after he slept with your mom?" The water in the Jacuzzi freezes over as the cold stares lower the room temperature.

Sleazo tells Jeremy there is no way he can pull back on the deal. Jeremy says people are asking questions and he can't dodge them. Nick walks into the passenger area and Sleazo pulls a gun on him.

Roman is at Sami's apartment working on the bomb aftermath. He wants to move them to a new safe house. Sami and Lucas want to stay there.

Andre lies in traction in his hospital bed. EJ walks in and chuckles, "Don't get up." He taunts him about being Andre instead of Tony, "The moment you found out my father was considering a truce, you went behind his back. When he finds out he will not be pleased."

Andre whispers something. EJ can't hear, "What did you say?"

Stefano booms, "He said look behind you. He's paralyzed permanently and Bo Brady is responsible. We have to have a long talk, my son."

Maggie and Hope search for Nick out on the beach. Bo rushes up to them, "I just called Nick's bank. He used his credit card to purchase a ticket to Vegas. He should be landing pretty soon. While I was on the phone with his bank, I cleaned out both his checking and savings accounts and posted his account numbers on the Internet just to teach him a lesson. It's really convenient that the privacy laws in Salem are so much more relaxed than other places."

"Chelsea," gasps Maggie, "He went to find Chelsea!"

Jeremy tells Sleazo Rawlings Nick is his cousin.

Rawlings says, "Sorry if I made you soak your shorts. He leaves. Nick asks if that was a real gun. Jeremy says Rawlings is with airport security. Nick announces he has a date on the beach. Jeremy says they are in Nevada. Nick asks to lie down for a second. Too late – he faints, falls and lands in a seat.

Roman tells Sami and Lucas they are making no sense. They can't stay in their apartment. An officer walks in and gives Roman a piece of evidence they found. It's a little case. Roman opens it and finds a note in side. He reads the note, "May the two of you live happily ever after in heaven. Love EJ."

Rolf wheels Stefano out as EJ follows. EJ protests, "That is Andre in there."

Stefano says he knows it's Andre, "This is the one son that did not disappoint me. This man was the one son I could count on."

Meanwhile, inside the room, the paralyzed Andre unhooks his bandages and gets inside EJ's briefcase.

Stefano tells EJ he has disappointed him. He must reap what he sows. He calls on Rolf to wheel him back in. EJ follows. He rants at Stefano and says he has done exactly what he wanted.

Stefano rejects him and tells him to get out. EJ takes his briefcase and leaves. Stefano asks if Andre left a little surprise with Elvis.

"It's all set to go off," says Andre.

"Very well," sighs Stefano, "It is done."

Maggie frets. Bo tells her to take it easy. Maggie wonders if they can't put out an APB in Vegas. Bo says they can't since a person has to be missing 24 hours before they can do that. Bo thinks if Nick is hurt bad he will surely try to get help. Hope comforts Maggie.

Jeremy throws water on Nick's face. Nick wakes up. He's disoriented and Jeremy tells him he passed out. Jerkemy's phone rings. Nick contemplates his glass of water.

Jeremy answers. Bo asks about Nick. Maggie yanks the phone from Bo, gives Jeremy a recap of the latest gossip from Salem and asks how Nick is doing. Jeremy tells them to check back in a couple hours and he will give an update. Jeremy hangs up, "So, Geekenstein, you have everyone in Salem looking for you." Nick asks about Chelsea. Jeremy says he knows where Chelsea is but she might not be too happy when she sees him, "You know that thing about 'what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?' That doesn't say anything about a boyfriend showing up."

Roman says, "Now you two are headed someplace safe."

Sami says, Let Stefano send all the DiMeras. Bring 'em on."

EJ steps in, "Amazing. I didn't think I could admire you any more."

Stephanie and Chelsea continue to argue. Chelsea suggests an STD test. If she comes back negative Chelsea will apologize. Stephanie huffs and walks out as Jett comes in.

Chelsea tells Jett Jeremy is cheating on Stephanie. Jett wants to talk, "We almost kissed. I could have wound up with a case of the cooties that would make Stephanie's STD look like diaper rash."

We're back at the pub. Anna walks in and finds Bo and Hope. She tells them about finding Tony on the island and bringing him back home. "He's fine," she assures them, "In fact, he's better than fine. He's amazing. Which is why I need to find Roman. If you see him would you ask him to call my cell?" She bounces out.

Hope tells Bo she thinks Roman is about to get his heart broken.

EJ asks if everyone is OK. They all determine everyone is fine, except for Nick. EJ apologizes if his family is behind this.

"Did you say 'IF,'" snorts MachoLucas.

"You're right," says EJ, "Obviously they are." EJ says he was at an SEC meeting all evening. He swears he had nothing to do with the bomb. Lucas gestures, postures and struts, "Oh, yeah, you would commit rape, but not leave a bomb!" EJ reminds Lucas they agreed to put their hostilities aside.

Stefano rants at the doctor, "We already know he is paralyzed! Either find a cause and start a treatment or I will knock this hospital down to its knees!"

"We think we're close to finding the cause," says the doctor, "We believe hitting the pavement after a nine story fall may have at least slightly contributed to his paralysis." He turns and leaves.

Tony walks in. Stefano gasps, "Tony!"

Tony sneers, "Yes, Stefano. It's so good to be back."

Bo says after all these years Hope doesn't know Roman. Bo thinks Roman will be relieved to be rid of Anna and back in the bachelor business again. Hope thinks Bo will be doing more diapers and slathering on more butt paste if he wants to make that bet. Hope suggests doubling the bet.

"What do you want me to do if I lose," asks Bo, "You want me to breast feed?"

"I want you to streak."

Bo's eyes grow wide, "You mean..."

"As the day you were born," says Hope.

"That's not gonna happen," says Bo.

"What happened to my Bo Brady," asks Hope, "My 'anything goes' Irish rebel who wouldn't think twice about risking it all on a dare?"

Bo agrees, "OK, if you win, I'll streak."

"God, you're easy," says Hope.

He moves in on her, "You've never complained about that before."

Sami tries to get he-man Lucas to back off. EJ and Lucas bicker. Sami yanks Lucas nose ring and things calm down. EJ says he will do anything he can to help. Roman wants to know if that includes turning in Stefano. Sami tells EJ if he's going to do that, it means he's in danger, too. EJ says he will do whatever it takes to protect Sami.

Sami doesn't want to go back to a safe house. Roman says they can move in with him.

Stefano tells Tony he's looking well. Tony walks over to Andre's bedside, "You look as if you went a little over the top. HAHAHAHAHAHA!" Tony accuses Stefano of having no compassion. He says the tide is turning. The people he has attacked are coming together and gaining strength. Tony will not rest until he sees Stefano and his minions get hurt, "Your reign of terror is over. Period."

Sami wants to stay in their home. So does Lucas. They want to make the place a home for the twins. Lucas promises to protect Sami and the twins. Roman OK's it. He says he will post guards outside the door. He hugs Sami and leaves. "What now," asks EJ, "Shall we have a game of hearts?"

Chelsea tells Jett she is tired of obsessing over relationships. She heads for the hot tub. He follows. She tells him the near-kiss was not a big deal. Jett says he was a jackass and was really mad at himself. He was using her to get over Danielle. Chelsea says she was using him too. They decide to forgive and forget. She invites him into the Jacuzzi. Jett hops in as Chelsea says, "What matters is not letting things that don't happen get in the way." Jett agrees.

Stefano claps and says bravo. He says Tony has a sense of drama.

Roman interrupts. He and Tony have a joyful reunion. Tony says Anna and he would like to have Roman over for dinner. Roman thinks that's a good idea.

Roman tells Stefano he missed with the bomb. Stefano acts like he doesn't know anything about a bomb. Obviously, he hasn't been watching DOOL lately. Roman says whoever planted it is trying to frame EJ, "After the smoke cleared, the smell was like an old man ready to die." Roman vows they all will soon be dancing on Stefano's grave. He suggests Stefano spend as much quality time with Andre as he can, since Andre will be going to prison. Roman leaves.

Outside, Roman tells the officer guarding the room to call if there is any trouble. Tony comes out and tells Roman to let him know if there is anything he can do. Roman asks about the key. He tells Tony to find out what lock it goes in and get his hands on it whatever the cost.

Hope wants to rip Bo's clothes off and strip him down just to practice for his upcoming streaking event. Bo says it won't happen because Roman will love his freedom.

Tony and Anna walk in and we have a joyful reunion. Tony says he told Stefano he came back to bring him down. Roman walks in. He stomps over and says a few words to Bo. Roman is in a bad mood. He says he has other things to do somewhere else. Anna chases, but Roman runs away.

Things aren't going Bo's way. Hope says, "Roman's running out before the other shoe drops." She grabs Bo's shirt... RIP! "Speaking of dropping...I don't mean shoes."

EJ says he's just trying to make everyone relax. Lucas decides to be civil. He hands EJ his briefcase, "We hate to see you go but... Cheerio. You don't want the door to hit you on the way out do you?"

Chelsea is glad she and Jett have talked all this out. Jett thinks they might become closer friends because of it. Suddenly, they both feel really hot and decide they need to cool off. They stand up and nervously talk about the strip, the moon, the weather, whatever. Jett gets out to dry off. Chelsea crawls over the ledge and slips into his arms. Of course, Jeremy and Nick walk in as Chelsea and Jett hold on to each other and giggle.

Dr. Lewis calls and asks for Roman. He wants him back at the hospital.

We pan out to see Andre's hospital room. The guard who used to be outside the door is in Andre's bed tied up and struggling. Dr. Lewis says, "We don't know how this happened."

Roman runs back out into the pub and tells them about Andre escaping, "Stefano has disappeared, too." He looks around the room and asks, "Where did Bo go."

Bo the streak comes back in and stands behind a carefully placed curtain. A small curtain. They all tell him Andre has escaped.

"Let's go get him," says Bo.

"Maybe you should put some pants on first," says Roman, "Maybe with a little luck, we'll catch someone with their pants down."

EJ says it was under different circumstances when he promised to move out of his apartment. Lucas vows to keep watching EJ. EJ looks down at his briefcase, "Is it me, or is my briefcase beeping?"

"OMG," gasps Sami. They all stare at the briefcase.

Max says, "I just want to know that you're OK." Ilsa says, "I cannot talk to you." Max says, "I'm one of the good guys. I swear, Ilsa, just talk..." Creepo interrupts, "Hey! The little lady is with me, so just back off, Jack!"

Bo asks, "Something on your mind?" Shawn says, "Yeah, I'm thinking of asking Belle to marry me."

Belle tells Phillip, "You are a girl's dream come true." Phillip beams.

Lucas shoves Sami, "Sami! It's a bomb! Get out of the way." Sami runs away, "Lucas, NO!" EJ stands there holding his briefcase.

Typical DOOL

Lots of bombs in Salem this summer and that doesn't even include some of the storylines.

Stephanie and Chelsea continue to argue. Chelsea suggests an STD test. If she comes back negative Chelsea will apologize. Stephanie huffs and walks out as Jett comes in.[Photo]Chelsea tells Jett Jeremy is cheating on Stephanie. Jett wants to talk, "We almost kissed.

Looks like we might get that consequence sl someone mentioned a few weeks back. Maybe that's why Isla is crying, although I still like the slave ring idea.

I don't know about you but wouldn't sitting in a hot tub with someone you basically accused of having an STD make you go Ewwwww?

Prevuze is back! LOL at all your Lucas descriptions (particularly liked "He-Man") and the "cause" of Andre's paralysis.

"Bo says they can't put out an APB since a person has to be missing 24 hours before they can do that"... and in DOOL time, that won't be till a week from Friday..

Thanks for the laughs this morning!

I have this sense of dread they're going to utilize the DOOL Recycling Old Scripts Program and have Stefano/Andre kidnap Tony and replace him with Andre again.

And speaking of recycling, how many shows are they going to leave with a bomb at Lumi's place??

Another only on DOOL - Pard tells Tony to get the key from Stefano any way he can. Why don't Pard, the Salem PD and Squints the big agent just grab supposedly weak and dying Stef and search him for it? At this point wouldn't anyone else just do that? TLT.

LOL over the Cocoon sequel and I also loved the doctor's analysis of Andre (are you sure that wasn't Dr. Lexie? HAHAHAHAHA)

Great Prevuze on a very gloomy Monday!! Welcome back! :D

What's with EJ carrying his breifcase into Andre's room, and then into Lumi's apartment, as well. How often did he carry it in the past??? Dumb da dumb dumb!!

SPOILER TIME!!!
Bulldog you almost had it!!

Stefano is going to kidnap Sami!
The bomb in EJ's case will go off, knocking out the three stooges.
When Moe and Larry (oops I mean Lucas and EJ) come to, Sami is gone.
Of course Lucas reacts with his normal cool and calm demeanor....ROFLMAO (okay I should have known I couldn't do that with a straight face)....Lucas is mad at the police for letting Andre escape, at EJ for bringing the bomb over because he just KNOWS EJ is in on everything, mad at Sami for getting herself into trouble again....Lucas could use some Paxil and an anger management class.
Meanwhile as the Salem police deduce Stefano and Andre are responsible for this (thank you Mr. Obvious) and they go off to sit in Roman's office and read files and wait for test results.

EJ suggests he and Lucas work together to find Sami. Lucas agrees and they spring into action both looking constipated.

Later Tony, the only Salem resident with a working set of brain cells, tells Marlena, Roman EJ and Lucas that Sami is with Stefano in a plane circling over Bermuda while Dr. Rolf prepares to get the stem cells to save Stefano.

Hmmmm ... China Lee -- Chelsea. Is anybody thinking this "engagement" has something to do with Nick's amnesia -- like somehow in his confusion he thought China Lee (which sounds a little like Chelsea) was his girlfriend, or maybe she heard him calling for Chelsea and told him he really was looking for "China Lee" instead? Oooh, wait, that limb is starting to really sway in the wind and I hear cracking sounds ... I think I'd better get off!!

Santo asking Colleen to get a simple g-string and dance around a simple pole just had me laughing so hard. Y'all have genius minds!

Lucas could use some Paxil and anger management. Everytime that man opens his mouth and his voice is higher than it should be, I just tune him out...kind of like with my whiny children. Who can listen to that kind of noise?

Thanks again for the great laughs!

I JUST READ THAT NICK WILL CALL OR COME SEE SAMI AND LUCAS AND TELL THEM WHAT KATE HAD MADE HIM DO AND THAT HE DIDNT REALLY PERFORM THE TEST ON THE TWINS THE FIRST TIME, BUT HE DID THIS TIM AND THAT...LUCAS IS THE FATHER OF BOTH TWINS.

I WAS UPSET ABOUT THIS DUE TO THE FACT THAT I AM SICK OF LUCAS, I WAS ONCE A SAMI AND LUCAS FAN UNTIL HE SLEEP WITH HER SISTER, CALLED HER A B***H, AND HAS TALKED AND TREATED HER LIKE S**T. I LIKE THAT EJ LIKE HER GOOD OR BAD, BUT I THINK THAT EVERYONE IS HATING THIS WHOLE "RAPE" THING, BUT DIDNT SAMI DRUG AUSTIN AND "RAPE" HIM?...AND WHO SAYS NO MEANS NO. BUT I GUESS THE HEAD WRITERS HAVE FORGOTTEN ALL THIS. BUT SAMI GOT AUSTIN IN A WAY BUT LET HIM GO, SO AM HOPING FOR SAMI AND EJ, YES HER RAPEST TO BE TOGETHER.
AND I KNOW THAT I AM GOING TO BE ALONE IN THIS, BUT I LIKE EJ, YOU LOVE HATE HIM.

Better late than never!! Just got to Prevuze and I think I've hurt myself trying to stifle the laughter. (I have auditors camped in the office right outside my door.)
- The "simple g-string", "takin' o' yer vows", and the other pictures were too funny.
- "We think we're close to finding the cause," says the doctor, "We believe hitting the pavement after a nine story fall may have at least slightly contributed to his paralysis." - this one really got me going. And Prevuze response to Frog was the icing on the cake!

One of the DOOLisms for me today: Roman is going to get his heart broken by Anna being with Tony. Huh? Anna only spent a couple of nights with Pard. How deep an emotional bond could Roman have forged that quickly??

Fabulous come-back, Prevuze.

You are not alone in liking EJ and wanting he and Sami to get together. I despise Lucas, always have, he is a whiny brat.
I will say it again, EJ did not rape Sami. He was not holding a gun to her head as some like to claim, he gave her a choice - he would help in exchange for sex. Sami got what she wanted and EJ got what he wanted. Besides, how many times did Sami want to do EJ and Pukas intervened?

No, EJ was not holding a gun to Sami's head, BUT HE WAS HOLDING LUCAS' LIFE IN HIS HANDS!!!!!!!! What CHOICE??? did Sami have??? Hello, is anyone in there???

2:59 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I agree with the person who said it wasn't rape that EJ did to Sami. It was more like extortion rather than rape, both being criminal acts...but still not really rape. And, yes Sami could have chose to say no. She could have just allowed fate to take it's course and Lucas die, or she could have kept running around looking for someone else to help her rescue Lucas. Maybe she could have said a prayer asking for someone to come and help her save Lucas. But, she did have the choice to say no to EJ and so hence it wasn't rape.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oh, yes, FATE, or look for someone else in a REMOTE AREA. GIVE ME A BREAK!!! And I don't care that she wanted him in the past, at this time and place, HE GAVE HER THE CHOICE TO LET HIM RAPE HER, OR TO LET LUCAS DIE!!!! What kind of CHOICE is that?????

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Woah, don't get all upset and miserable. I was just being kinda funny in saying that she could look around for someone else or say a prayer or something. You know it is a soap opera and stupid things happen all the time.
We're all entitled to our opinions, and you are definitely welcome to post yours. When you post in all caps it's like you're screaming at us. We are also entitled to an opinion just as you are.
You're right it was horrible and vicious that EJ wanted sex in return for help in saving Lucas' life. I still just don't see it as rape. It's extortion or blackmail. Mostly because Sami could have said no way, I will not compromise my morals for you or anyone and she could have gotten out of the car and away from EJ. Who knows, maybe EJ would have helped her out anyways if she had turned down his nasty deal. Maybe he was just seeing if he could get something he wanted. Sleazy nonetheless, but she could have looked for another option. Rape victims don't have options.

By the way, my above post probably makes you think I'm a fan of EJ and Sami together. Actually, I don't really care so much. I just still don't think it constitutes rape.

Wow. "rape victims don't have options". Sometimes rape victimes have a choice, get raped or get killed. Good Lord, it was rape. Not the good old fashioned stranger in the alley rape, or even your friendly date rape, but rape nonetheless.

If Lucas is the father well EJ will leave Sami alone don't you think? She is married to Lucas not to mention carrying his children. I'm glad the writers have this Colleen/Santo story to appease the EJami fans but heck I want this storyline over within a month. Let's move on. I want EJ and Sami together but it might not happen not in this decade. I think it's ironic how everything Sami has done to everyone else has come back to her 10 fold. EJ is her match. Hopefully she will think twice before turning back to her bad ways anytime soon.

Exactly! Extortion, not rape. She could have said no. If she had said no and he then forced her to have sex with him then that would be rape.
Guess prostitution is rape to a lot of you then too eh? It is an exchange of what he wants for what she wants. Same as Sami and EJ. Was it bad of him, yes. Nothing worse than our sweet Sami would do though.;)
