A Bucket Of Chum

EJ and Roman argue as EJ prepares to spend the rest of his life in Chateau d'If for parking ticket violations. EJ asks if Roman has any idea of the consequences his family will face if Stefano dies. Roman continues to read EJ his rights as EJ snatches the hypodermic needle off the table in front of him and jabs Roman in the leg. Roman yells, "You SOB!" EJ runs out.

Bo tells Stefano he can't cheat death. Stefano says he doesn't fear death. Bo says he doesn't know if that is true since he heard Stefano was begging for a slice of liver to save his life. Stefano insists Elvis is proud to be the donor. Bo tells him his proud son is headed for jail, "End this ridiculous vendetta, or prepare for a warm welcome in hell."

Sami paces in the dark health club. Tessa comes in, tells her the place is closed and asks her to leave.

Lucas stops foxy Andre. Andre turns and points his gun, "You're going to make one ugly stain on the wall." Lucas gets a look at Andre's face and makes an ugly stain on the carpet instead. He demands the folio. Andre refuses.

Roman struggles and yanks the hypo out of his leg.

Stefano asks if Bo expects him to turn over Andre. Bo offers the deal – EJ for Andre. EJ walks in. Bo asks where Roman is. "I'll tell," says EJ, "but you let me be his donor."

"That's the wonderful thing about tables," says Stefano, "They often turn."

Bo sneers, "Yeah, don't they." He turns to EJ, "You have the right to remain silent..."

Patch gives the play by play as he and Hope race to see who can slap a diaper on a kid quicker. It looks like a tie, but they argue about who won. Kayla answers the door. Benjy says he's looking for Patch and Bo. Pocket rages as Patch and Benjy go outside. Hope takes Ciara upstairs.

Outside, Benjy tells Patch Stefano is dying and that means his own life is in danger.

Roman continues to struggle, "I gotta get to Stefano."

EJ says if Bo takes him to jail, it will kill his father. Roman rushes up. While Roman and Bo are distracted, EJ goes over and asks Stefano to give them Andre. "Never," says Stefano. Bo overhears and says in that case EJ goes to jail. Stefano asks to be taken to his room. Rolf wheels him back.

Sami tells Tessa her husband followed a woman into the steam room.

"So get marriage counseling, honey," says Tessa, "Let's see your membership card."

Sami tells her she is Mrs. Roberts. Tessa's eyes widen, "You're Mrs. Roberts?" Sami doesn't have a membership card, so Tessa goes to look up her file on the computer. Sami rushes to the steam room door.

Lucas demands the folio. He doesn't think Andre will use the gun on him.

"There is more than one way to use a gun," says Andre. WHAP! "When a lady says no, she means no." Lucas lies in a heap on the floor and Andre kicks him for good measure.

Apparently Lucas thinks Andre hasn't had enough. He eggs him on, "Go ahead and kill me. Bo and Roman will hunt you down."

"You're bait boy," sneers Andre, "A bucket of chum. Get up!" Lucas refuses. Andre whacks him again.

Lucas rants, "You can't beat the Bradys.

Andre says, "You are nothing but a pawn. Now it's time to die like a man."

Bo tells EJ, "Stefano just chose protecting Andre over keeping you out of jail." EJ says the only reason Andre is showing any restraint is because of Stefano. He asks for five minutes to convince Stefano to give Andre up. Bo gives him two minutes. EJ rushes for Stefano's room.

Meanwhile, Roman is in a pretty good mood, "Hey... I want to know. Bo... is that short for Boseph?" He plays some air guitar.

Stefano tells EJ to go away. EJ lectures, "I am your son. So lets stop playing games, shall we, or I walk out this door right now."

Stefano says, "Just leave your liver when you go."

Hope comes back downstairs. Patch tells her and Kayla what Benjy said to him about the liver donation. Hope goes to call Lexie. Kayla is proud of Benjy, "It took courage to stand up to Stefano." She says Benjy can stay with them as long as he wants to. Patch thinks they have to get Benjy's car off the street, since Stefano and Andre know what it looks like. Benjy thanks them. Kayla says, "You don't have to thank us. Were family."

EJ wants to know why Stefano is protecting Andre. "Because he is my nephew," snorts Stefano, "Get out."

EJ says he is doing this because he loves Stefano, "All you have to do is..."

Stefano interrupts, "Betray Andre."

EJ says all of them are fed up with having their lives twisted by revenge. Stefano says he is just doing what his father asked him to do.

"And what was that," asks EJ.

"Keep-a the vendetta going-a. "

EJ says Andre will just keep destroying people for fun, "He did it when he killed Renee." He asks why Stefano would protect Andre after he did that, "Do it for Renee. Don't let her death amount to nothing."

Bo comes in and says time's up. He halls EJ off. Bo is too smart to give EJ any more time to convince Stefano to do what Bo wants him to do.

Stefano is moved by the thought of Renee. He tells Bo to stop, "Andre is meeting Kate at the health club where he will give her the key that ends the vendetta." Bo lets EJ go. EJ walks over and kisses Stefano on the forehead. He asks Bo to take the cuffs off and he will help end this without violence.

We hear Sami shouting in the distance as Andre drags Lucas off. Sami searches. She finds blood on the wall, "OMG! It's Lucas' blood!" She finds his wedding ring, takes out her phone and calls Roman.

Roman answers and Sami blathers into the phone, "Daddy, we are at the health club. I found blood on the wall and Lucas' wedding ring. Please come and help!"

"Who is this," asks Roman.

Hope and Kayla watch Patch tending to Pocket. They cackle. Patch accuses them of cooking up baby plans, "I have a good nose for scheming women." Kayla asks if he likes having Pocket around.

It's all right.

Hope asks him to be more specific, "Why do you like having him around?"

Steve asks, "You mean besides the fact his name is so stupid it cracks me up every time I hear it? Let's see...I like it when he wraps his entire hand around my finger. It's a riot. I till him to pull my finger and he does and then I... you know. And I like it when he falls asleep on my chest, so we can finally get some peace and quiet. All that grumbling I do is just trash talk." Kayla hugs him and tells him he will make a great father. Patch says, "Whatever makes ya happy, baby."

Hope interrupts and says Steve still hasn't answered her question. Steve asks, "And what is that question, Mariska Hargitay?

Hope asks, "Do you want to be a dad again? We need an honest answer."

"Then you should ask an honest guy," says the kidney thief.

Sami answers Roman's question, "It's me – Sami. I need your help."

Roman asks, "Does your mommy know you're on the phone? After you called Tokyo weather you're not supposed to be on the phone."

"That happened a long time ago," says Sami, "What happened to you?"

"EJ stuck me," says Roman, "I think it was with a needle filled with lollipops, hee, hee, hee. Bo is making me sit in this chair."

Do me a favor," says Sami, "Yell at Bo and tell him to come to the phone." Roman zones.

John Black walks up behind him, "Hey, old buddy, you got any more needles full of lollipops to share with a friend?"

Sami calls Bo and fills him in on what is going on at the health club.

EJ sits beside Roman. Sami tells Bo Lucas is in trouble. She tells him about the blood and wedding ring.

Stefano chuckles as Bo leaves. Bo finds Roman sitting alone and tells him they have to go, "Sami's in trouble."

Roman slurs, "With her mother?"

Tessa storms back into the gym, "Kate Roberts is a member of this club. You don't look like Kate Roberts picture on my computer."

Sami tells Tessa Lucas might be trapped in the steam room, "I'll have you know my uncle is a detective and my dad is the assistant police commissioner."

"And my dad is the tooth fairy," says Tessa. She hauls Sami out screaming.

Lucas lies beaten and bloody in the front seat of a car.

Opera music plays. Stefano says, "I know this aria. I remember this music."

"You should," says Santo, "It was the first opera I took you to."

Stefano looks up and about has a heart attack. He sobs and reaches for him, "Papa."

"No my son," says Santo.

Sami rants. Tessa says it's over. EJ rushes in. Sami tells him she can't find Lucas. EJ flashes his membership card at Tessa and tells her he is a member and Sami is her guest.

"It doesn't matter," says Tessa, "The club is closed." EJ tells Sami they have to go. He hauls her off as she protests. After they reach the door he goes back and gives Tessa his card, "If you ever want to go to corporate call me."

Tessa leaves as Sami and EJ head back toward the steam room.

Lucas sits in the car and struggles. His hands and feet are bound with duct tape, "I'm gonna kill Andre. Sami's in there with him."

Hope and Kayla badger Steve. He says he thinks life is unpredictable. He loves Stephanie, but still feels guilty for leaving Kayla. He wonders what is to stop the DiMeras from coming at them again. He has to protect what they have. Kayla bollixed up raising Stephanie because she was alone and he doesn't want to mess up another kid.

Pocket runs upstairs and starts packing his bags.

Kayla says it isn't his fault Stefano brainwashed him. Hope says she shouldn't have pressed. Suddenly, Steve remembers Benjy went out to move his car and runs out to look for him.

Stefano remembers the opera. He never took his eyes off the stage. Stefano remembers it was a revelation for him – he had no idea beauty could be so powerful. Santo remembers. Stefano asks if he is there to reclaim him. Santo says he never let him go. He was a good son. Stefano says he never doubted Santo's motives, but his mission has never been completed. He believes he has wasted the empire.

Santo claims he is the one who wasted it, "I was-a not a good-a match-a with your mother. Colleen she was-a the love of my life-a. When I couldn't have her, after the appropriate three day mourning-a period, that is, I wanted-a vengeance-a."

Stefano says he failed. Santo says he failed Stefano, Eet was my job-a as your father to protect-a your innocence-a. Instead I-a betrayed it. I started a war. I put-a you in the middle."

Stefano says sometimes he dreams and wakes up and thinks the world is like it was before the vendetta.

"I'm-a sorry," says Santo.

Stefano says he wasted half his life avenging Santo's heartbreak, "And now my children have abandoned me and I am dying alone. Sorry doesn't seem enough."

Santo says, "Ees not-a over. The Phoenix will-a arise again-a."

Lucas struggles and gets his duct tape handcuffs off. He frees his feet and starts to get out of the car. Outside a Doberman pinscher barks and slobbers. "Easy, big boy," says Lucas.

Sami wants to go with EJ. He wants her to stay there, "You know you can trust me."

"Yes," says Sami. She sits and waits as EJ heads into the steam room.

Bo arrives at the health club with Roman staggering behind. He shouts for Sami and Lucas. Tessa comes out and he tells her he is looking for Sami. Roman smiles and waves, "Hi! I'm the commish!"

"Ohmygosh," says Tessa, "It's true, then." Bo explains Roman is under the influence. Tessa says Sami left with a guy named Wells.

Sami knocks at the steam room door and yells, "EJ! Why are you taking so long? EJ!"

Andre slithers up behind her, "Does it have to be EJ, or will any DiMera do?"

Sami whirls, "Where is my husband? What have you done with him, you creep?"

Andre says, "I put him in the evil warehouse, told him to keep talking and the military is now using it for a wind tunnel. And you're going to be reunited with him very, very soon."

Hope assures Kayla Benjy will be fine. Steve comes back carrying a suitcase and Benjy's cap. Kayla rushes to him. Steve promises they will find Benjy.

Lucas judiciously decides to stay in the car. Being Lucas, he has a brilliant idea. He scoots over to the passenger side and starts to get out. Fido runs over and jumps up at the window, slobbers and barks. Gee, that didn't work. Outsmarted by a dog again.

Roman chuckles. Bo asks if Tessa knows where Sami and EJ went. She asks she doesn't. Bo gets a call. Lucas tells Bo he's trapped in a car in the alley behind the health club, "Andre played ping pong with my head."

"Who won," asks Bo.

Roman slurs in the background, "Hey, is that Lucas? Hiiiiii, Lucas!"

Lucas hears Roman, "Oh, great."

EJ starts to come out of the sauna. Instead, Andre shoves Sami in with him. He chains the door, cackles and turns up the heat.

Sami asks, "Is it warm in here or is it just me?"

Santo tells Stefano he isn't going to die. Santo is there to help Stefano fulfill his destiny. He tells him not to give up now.

As Santo leaves Stefano pleads, "What am I to do? Papa, come back!"

Rolf comes in and tries to give Stefano oxygen. Stefano huffs and puffs. He grabs Rolf, "Listen to me. The end is here. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

Andre looks at the folio, "The end is near..."


EJ and Sami have removed several items of cumbersome clothing. EJ says, "I very much care what happens to you." Sami says, "Help me get out of here. Help me save my babies' lives."

Lucas asks, "Who besides EJ would donate a liver?" Roman says, "Maybe that liver wasn't donated at all."

Bo tells Patch to cool down. Patch holds a cooler and screams, "I'm not gonna cool down! There is no way I'm letting that bastard get this."

OMG!! That stuff with Roman, that's some funny stuff. And who knows, maybe he'll be so loose that he'll actually move his mouth when he talks.

Syringes of lollipops, John Black wanting some, OMG, too funny! thanks!

Great comments today, just like everyday.

No brats today, hurray!! More Patch agonizing over fatherhood, boo!

How long has Sami been pregnant now? How many more dangerous, potentially deadly situations will these unborn twins be put in?

Kinda funny how Lucas was frozen last week and Sami is getting parbroiled this week. At least there isn't any ticking props.

Sami got preggers around Christmas, so she is 8 mos along right now.
And I agree with you. Most twin pregnancies are considered high risk and require special care to be taken, espcially during the last trimester.
Also, if anyone remembers, doesn't Sami have high blood pressure and is supposed to take it easy?

But then again, thie IS DOOL, so details don't matter.

Today's reading was really good. I can't wait to see tomorrow.

I was expressed with the fact that Lucas had a phone and used it. Sami stayed put for 2 minutes when EJ told her to stay put. Funny how she pays attention to him and no one else.

Did you guys hear that James Scott is getting married?

If EJ was willing to give his liver to Stefano then why doesn't he see he's a good son? And why would he allow Andre to keep trying to kill EJ? I just hate how Stefano turns his back so easily on his family yet he's always talking about trust and not betraying. HELLO Wake up Stefano you betray your family the first second you can!

Okay another thing that bothers me, Why is Lucas always getting hurt, this guy just does not know how to defend himself. =/ - Grey's Anatomy

The "wind tunnel" Prevuism was something I almost did a spit-take on. Too funny. The fence post and the iClod pictures also rocked. Although, I felt that first picture was giving fence posts a bad name.

My prediction on the reports that two DiMeras will die this fall - one of them won't be EJ. Yes, the cover of SOD has the nice, big headline "EJ Dies", but (as usual) the accompanying story explains that EJ gets electrocuted trying to get out of the steam room and is later brought back to life.

The two DiMera deaths?? I say the first will be Benjy who will croak from the liver grab. Later on - probably Andre. For the third or fourth time. HAHAHAHA

Expressed? Do you mean "impressed"?? Sami listens to EJ only because she figures he'll rape her again if she doesn't.

Did you guys hear that James Scott is getting married? To a woman??? I'm stunned!

Back to the Sami being 8 months along. Don't most twins-multiple births end up being premature or at least a little early? Will the babies be born in a sauna?

I guess I'm just troubled by the SuperSami posture and shrug of the shoulders attitude thatSami has for the babies' health and safety. Before she was all about hiding and saving the babies and Dimeras--stay thee for away from me attitude.

I know, I know, just a soap.

Yeah, how many organs does it take to put Stefano together? Kidney, liver......

Without going back and watching that section again, as I recall he more or less soft pedaled it and said it wasn't Kayla's fault that Stephanie wound up being so screwed up.

And let's face it, Stephanie is one screwed up babe, but it couldn't be dear Kayla's fault because she is only her mother.

In real life James is engaged to Meyghan Hill. I think that is the correct spelling of her name. She spells it different. Anyway, I'm happy for him. I saw some current pictures of him he might be married now.

Perhaps that explains the "wedding ring" on EJ's right hand -- perhaps Mr. Scott, being a newlywed, didn't want to be without his wedding ring, and not being able to wear it on the "traditional" finger, chose to wear it on his right hand. Oooh, romantic in real-life, too. Yum.

Why on earth would that doofus Bo take Pard with him in that condition instead of leaving him at the hospital? I know, typical Daze stupidity.

I LOL over the iClod and, of course, the devil. That pic always makes me laugh. He's gotten quite a bit of use in Salem.

Thanks, Prevuze, I needed some chuckles this morning. :D

Bo wanted to look smart. The only way he could do that was to take someone with him who was stoned out of his mind.

If Lexie knew about liver transplants, that a person could donate a portion of their liver to someone whose liver has failed, why didn't she mention this to Phelle when Claire needed a liver transplant?

What is this folio? I looked folio up in the dictionary and it says folio is paper. Is that the same here?

It's amazing that Sami can run all over the place with ease considering how pregnant she is.

I couldn't open up the link. Anyway I hope it was a good picture and you were just kidding. You are pretty good at that.

Anyway, I was on a website and these ladies were talking about how nice James was at this event they went to recently and he even talked to some people on the phone that couldn't come. It's one thing to pick on someone's tv character but I could never pick on someone's soon to be spouse or spouse. He seems like a nice person with a good heart and heaven forbid if he ever read this which some actors do I would hate to know we hurt his feelings even if they were joking. It is there private lives we are talking about. I'm not saying that picture is bad...I can't open up the link. I'm just saying it for those with a negative comment.

I'm hope no one is mad at the comment I just made. I throughly enjoy everyone comments. Everyone here cracks me up and I still love reading your recaps. You do an excellent job.

I'm back. I actually like the dress. Is Meghan the designer or the one wearing the dress? You have to keep in mind that the line looks to be Scottish and they are very big on their plaid and their kilts over there (I just got back from Scotland a couple weeks ago.).

Looks like she's a model. Here are some other pictures from the event and Meyghan in another outfit.

As long as he's happy....

Umm, excuse me, but Meyghan is a model, and she is wearing that dress as part of her work.

Not only is it disresepctful and irrelevant to comment on her clothes, you should realize that what she wears on and off the runway are two differnt things.
