Samithermia

Tony sits at a table and tells his bimbos about the lights in Spain. He thinks they should see them. They can go when he has more time. EJ walks in and Tony excuses himself. Bimbo #1 asks, "What about Pamplona? What about the bulls?"

"To be continued," says Tony.

He walks over to EJ, "If there was ever a face that screamed bring me the whiskey and leave the bottle, I'm looking at it. Ah, yes... the pressure of the DiMera legacy... or is it the curse... uneasy lies the head that wears the crown."

EJ says he never asked for the DiMera crown and Stefano isn't giving it to him. Stefano used to tell EJ he could conquer the world, "He had dreams, but they weren't mine." Tony asks what EJ wants. EJ sighs, "To have Samantha love me half as much as I love her."

Sami checks the hallway. Lucas is reading the Kama Sutra. He twists himself up like a pretzel and announces he has found a new position. The poor guy didn't read the part about having a woman with him when he does this. Sami starts to join him, but is concerned about his machines going off again. Lucas insists he can control the machines, "Mind over matter, you know."

"Don't you need a mind to do that," asks Sami.

Lucas is desperate, "Come on! The launch sequence has been activated."

A nurse walks in with a full body sponge bath and oil massage. That gets Lucas' attention. He suggests maybe Sami should go home. "Oh, hell no," snaps Sami.

Nick gambles as China lee watches. She encourages him as he loses. He's $1,000 down. He wishes he had Pete's glass eye. "Twenty five dollars to get married," he says, "And $25,000 to get out of it." Getting rid of China Lee... priceless.

Stephanie and Max maul each other. "You know I'm with Jeremy," says Stephanie.

"Jeremy who," asks Max.

"I love him," she protests as she pulls him in for more.

Meanwhile, out in the hallway, Jeremy tells Jett, "Don't give me that 'best buds' routine. Are you selling me out here? Are you a cop, Carver?"

Jett asks, "Do I look that stupid?"

Jeremy says, "No, but then again, not all cops are from Salem."


Sami thinks the nurse must be exhausted. Nursie tells Lucas to relax. Lucas has no problem following orders. Nursie rubs. Sami suggests she must have other patients who need her. Lucas reminds Sami the massage is doctor's orders. Sami suggests helping. She can handle Lucas and then Nursie can help other patients. Nursie agrees, "Mrs. Fiddleman needs me." Nursie goes to work on Mrs. Fiddleman while Mrs. Fiddlearound stays to help Lucas. As she leaves, Nursie reminds them, "Don't forget his pressure stockings. Remember those extremities."

Lucas tells Sami, "My extremities only have eyes for you."

It's not his eyes Sami is worried about. She massages. Lucas says it feels good. "It's only gonna get better from here," says Sami.

Stephanie pulls a card from Sami's deck, "We can't do this!" Max thinks maybe they can. "It's not right," she protests.

"It feels right to me," says Max. Stephanie reminds him they tried it before. Max says dumping her was a mistake. They dive in again, she calls it off again. They go at it again... Max may need to be treated for whiplash. Chelsea walks into the room and takes in the show.

Tony thinks EJ has it bad. EJ says he feels like a fool being completely captivated by a woman. Tony suggests he enjoy every excruciating moment, "It hurts to good." EJ tells Tony Stefano is furious with him. He wants him to deal with his obstacles the DiMera way.

"Meaning just remove them," says Tony. He asks about Lucas' little "accident" and if EJ was involved.

"Maybe," says EJ. Tony tells him taking Stefano's advice can be deadly. "The only thing I can think about is Samantha," says EJ.

Tony completes EJ's sentence, "And how to off her husband." Tony advises him that he can have her if he believes she is worth the sacrifice.

Sami rubs. Lucas oohs, aahs and gets excited. He thinks she should leave. Sami decides trying to figure out baby names will provide a distraction. Lucas thought they already decided on Tom and Colleen, but Sami wants him to play along. Lucas suggests Lucy and Ricky. Sami vetoes, "I don't want anything with an apostrophe either."

"I guess that leaves out 'Book and End,' says Lucas, "And there goes 'Ham and Cheese.'" Lucas was absent the day they covered 'apostrophe' in school. They veto Roman and Kate and try 'Marlena' on for size.

Sami works up the leg. Lucas stops her, "I think we're about six and a half inches from liftoff."

Max and Stephanie work on their water ballet routine.

Jeremy says Jett is always there asking questions that are none of his business. Jett thinks Jeremy is seeing conspiracies everywhere.

Chelsea runs out of the room. Jeremy asks if Stephanie is OK. Chelsea chokes on her words, "Uh... Why shouldn't she be?"

"What she needs," says Jeremy, "is a dose of the hot tub, champagne and me. She should be fine."

Chelsea the linebacker throws a block, "You can't go in there!" Naturally, Jeremy wants to know why. Chelsea stammers, "I have to change my underwear... I'm headed for the casino, and I can't go without my lucky underwear." She rushes back inside.

"Lucky for the guy," says Jeremy.

"Unless he happens to see her in them," says Jett.

Chelsea runs in and announces Jeremy's presence to the swim team. Then she goes back outside and thanks Jeremy and Jett for waiting. She leaves as the dynamic duo walks inside.

Stephanie is standing there dripping wet. Jeremy orders, "Get those beautiful buns in the hot tub." She suggests a shower instead.

Jett walks out into the hot tub area, where Max is doing some underwater exploring. Max surfaces and takes a deep breath. "What the hell are you doing," asks Jett.

Nick looks at his cards and decides to hold. The dealer turns her card over and shows him a King and Queen. "Game over," says Nick, "I'm broke."

"Broke-broke," asks China Lee.

Nick says he has nothing. China knows he tried, "At least DeMarquette and Artemis have their daddy." Nick says they need a real daddy. She thinks he's talking fairy tales, but agrees to sign the annulment papers, "This town is full of easy marks but you are the first one I actually liked." Smooch, "Hang tight baby." Nick walks over to the bar, orders a draft and charges it to Jeremy.

Chelsea runs up and tells him about Stephanie, Max and the water show they put on which was better than the Bellagio. She asks, "Did you lose all your money?"

Nick says, "I don't have a nickel to my name. China Lee signed the annulment papers. We're free."

Janis Joplin walks up and reminds him, "Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose."

She hugs him.

Tony brings up the subject of the key. EJ says Stefano will never give it up. Tony says he had it for a short time but Bo and Hope took it to Galway, "There was a folio in the tabernacle, but someone got there ahead of them. It's in Stefano's hands or Andre's. There are revelations inside. All the Brady's are in danger, but the information could end the vendetta."

EJ asks, "The contents of this vault... this could end the vendetta?"

Tony says, "On the contrary. The contents are so devastating the Bradys would destroy the folio and everything in it, letting the vendetta go on indefinitely rather than expose it to the light of day."

EJ says, "Three more words and that answer would have been longer than the Gettysburg Address." He thinks it doesn't make any sense, "If it holds the end of the vendetta why would they want to destroy it?"

"You have to go to the inner workings of Stefano's mind," says Tony. EJ asks him to explain it. "It's baroque architecture," says Tony, "Mental stairways of twists and turns that lead to nowhere. It came from Santo."

"So Santo's mind is warped and twisted," asks EJ.

"Yes," says Tony, "It was so bad he was once made an honorary citizen of Salem. Can you imagine Santo seeing this cruel murder of the love of his life, his heart torn to shreds? He sent Stefano on the road to revenge. All is written in the folio and if you can get your hands on it you will know – and maybe have everything you ever wanted."

EJ asks, "Samantha?"

"Hmmm...," says Tony, "Would you excuse me? It's good to be back." He goes back to his bimbos.

Nursie walks into Lucas' room and finds the bed empty. She presses the call button. Lucas comes out of the bathroom, "Nothing like a nice hot shower." She asks why he isn't wearing the pressure stockings. "They weren't my style," says Lucas, "Do you have something in a tope? Perhaps fishnet?"

She orders him back in bed, "I heard you were a trouble maker." As he scoots into bed she soaks in the back of his gown.

"No peeking," says Lucas. Apparently, Lucas isn't wearing his lucky underwear.

Sami pops out of the bathroom, "Hey, Lucas, we... oops."

Jett says Max would have been in big doo-doo if Jeremy had discovered them. He needs Max to be an unbiased witness and thinks he can't be if he's shacking up with Jeremy's girlfriend, "I'm not having months of undercover work go down because you can't keep your pants zipped!"

Jeremy chases Stephanie through the room and out to the hot tub area. He sees Max standing there in his pants dripping wet, "Is it raining out here?"

Max says, "Jett dunked me." He beats a hasty retreat.

Jeremy congratulates Jett for getting the best of Max. He suggests hitting the slots and walks away. Stephanie gives Jett a look.

Nick can't believe it, "Maybe she was looking for deeper pockets."

"The moral," says Chelsea, "is the next time you are in Vegas about to be married, make sure..."

Nick interrupts, "There is only one woman I want. You." Kiss.

"I love your lips," says Chelsea.

"They're all I have to offer," says Nick, "No job. No money." Chelsea thinks they will figure something out – Together. "You don't think I'm a loser," asks Nick.

"Jeremy already has that title."

The loser convinces Stephanie to go do something. She walks off as he grabs Ilsa. She figures instead of hitting the slots, Jeremy must have said, "hit the sluts."

Chelsea watches. She doesn't get it when she sees Jeremy do something like that and Stephanie just stands there. Nick doesn't care. He suggests going up and catching some sleep.

"Sweet dreams," says Chelsea.

"You're the best," says Nick, "the best what is up for debate." He kisses her and leaves.

Stephanie stews. She comes over to Chelsea and says she can explain. "What," asks Chelsea, "deep sea diving with Max or how your other boyfriend is flirting with that girl and you aren't doing anything about it?"

Nursie lectures the naughty couple and leaves. Sami jumps in with Lucas. He tells her he has rubbery legs.

"It's from the hypothermia," says Sami.

"No," says Lucas, "The Samithermia." Sami puts his pressure stockings on. Smooch.

EJ walks in, "Lucas, I'm glad to see you're feeling better." He says he's there to talk about the vendetta. He claims he found a way to end it.

Max walks into the casino and sees Jeremy and Ilsa. A woman bumps into him and he helps pick up the things she spilled out of her purse. The woman says this is her first time in Vegas. Max introduces himself. Her name is Jenna Powers. She's there for a conference, but decided to skip the seminar and have some fun, just like we all do when we're at a conference. Max offers to buy her a drink. She orders a vodka gimlet with a "kiss" of lime. Jenna makes a phone call while Max is at the bar.

EJ thinks Andre has the folio with the conditions for ending the vendetta. Lucas mouth goes into gear. He rants and tells Sami she can't get involved with this. Sami reminds him she already is.

EJ says Andre will have to get the folio to Stefano. The cops are watching him. Stefano will have to use a courier to get the folio so he won't be implicated. Sami thinks they have to figure out who the courier will be. EJ says he knows the courier is Kate.

Nick is in a robe. He opens the door to the room. A man stands there with Artemis and DeMarquette. If the kids were smiling any wider, you'd need that new 46" plasma you've been thinking about getting. The man says, "I was asked to deliver these children to their daddy."

Jenna talks into her phone, "I have what you asked for. What do you want me to do with him?"

Lucas insists Saint Kate can't be in cahoots with Stefano. EJ wonders if that's the case, why she is so flush with cash suddenly, "Where did she get it?" Lucas speculates. EJ says, "I think maybe she got it from Stefano for services rendered."

Lucas loses his cool. Sami tries to back him off. Lucas rants, "Her days of doing 'favors' for money are over!"

"If you say so," says EJ. He still thinks Kate is the courier. Sami thinks they have to intercept Kate. Lucas asks if Sami is buying into this. Sami thinks Lucas should grab a bite of reality. Lucas says there is no way in hell Kate would hook up with Stefano. Sami says this isn't about his mom. She plays her trump card – the twins, "If there is a chance for them we have to act fast."

Lucas does a 180, "Yeah, right. Fine!" He turns to EJ, "What the hell you want us to do." Pan in on EJ.


Previews
========

Jenna asks, "What if I really was propositioning you that way? What then Mr. Max?"

Stephanie tells Jeremy, "I'm tired of sitting alone at a bar while you are off doing business. How about making me a priority for once?"

Adrienne strokes Patch's cheek and says, "It's about being the kind of father we never had. The kind of father you wanted ever since you were a little boy."

Bo says, "You're settin' yourself up as bait." Roman says, "I know what the stakes are." Bo says, "Yeah. Your life."

I have one question? Why does EJ wear a wedding ring? I have been seeing it for weeks now, and I don't get it? Oh well this is DOOL were talking about here?

I was just wondering has anyone else noticed the wedding ring that EJ wears? I have been noticing this over the past few episodes. Anyone?


These are two questions from late yesterday. We don't pretend to know the answer, but he wears it on his right hand, so perhaps it has sentimental value.

OK, so now that the precious "folio" has been in DiMera hands, how can anyone be sure that the contents haven't been "altered"?? OMG, they could drag this out till February sweeps!

And a thought struck me yesterday -- what if it turns out that Frankie and/or Max are actually DiMeras? I can't remember way back when they were adopted, but not too much was said about their "real" parents, I don't think. Hmmm.

And I still think that Willow is going to turn out to have been a descendant of the Santeen offspring. Something about her telling Shawn Jr. that her grandfather's name was Shawn keeps nagging at me. Maybe her mother or father was the Santeen offspring, and even though Shawn Sr. would have been her great-uncle she called him her grandfather. Does anyone remember if Willow ever met or saw Shawn Sr. while she was on the show? Hmm.

What, so Jeremy gives up on Jett being a secret agent that easy? I guess his secret smuggling isn't that much of a big deal.

And I thought 'The Tony' was good and awesome. What's with the reluctant agreement on murder.

"I'm not having months of undercover work go down because you can't keep your pants zipped!"
Yeah, it's not because you told someone your secret because their feelings got hurt, or the fact that it's easy enough to blow your cover using the awesomeness of Google.

I don't think Willow ever did meet Shawn Sr. Even if she was a descendant of Santeen, she'd still be a DiMera and never be seen as a Brady. Unless she comes back from the dead as a nun or something.

Overall, Willow isn't sanctimonious enough to be a Brady.

Finally there should be a poll on who Nick is blackmailed by next. I think Belle would be pretty interesting.

My question for the day is - neither Stef nor Andre are likely to confide in Tony at the moment. So how does he know the big secret item was a folio and that Andre has it?

Just when we thought the China Lee thing might be coming to an end it seems there's more. Looks like I might have to install new batteries in my remote for this episode!

I really LOL over Dattilo's lice picture (great one, Carol!) and Lucas' lack of apostrophe knowledge. HAHAHAHA

Excellent Prevuze!!

I really hope we get that folio back, this has dragged on long enough.

I loved Lucas and Sami giving him his sponge bath and the nurse coming in asking why he doesn't have his stockings on. That was great. I love these two together :)

Are you a cop, Carver?"

Good point!

Lucas was absent the day they covered 'apostrophe' in school. LOL at that one! I think most of the DAYS writers qualify as examples of the decline of our public education system.

You are right, Klaus. I had the same reaction to Willow's comment way back when. I'd forgotten about that.

Great Prevuze and pics (and comments) as usual.

I think it should be Claire. I mean, she's probably graduated from super-sleuth school by now and knows he won the money in Vegas by card-counting (with Jerry Springer's help).

It's not happening in the US because here you have to be dead to get your likeness on a postage stamp. In Holland, you only have to be brain dead.

my thoughts exactly!!! bo and hope were going to keep it a secret from every one except roman, so I guess the guy talking to the girls must be andre???!!!?!?!?

I wondered myself how Tony knew what was in the folio. I think when the one hour show ends it's still being played out. We the viewers just don't see it. Some of the stuff they come up with I'm like huh?

As far as EJ wearing the ring. I really don't care but it's bother me because I'm like is that ring part of the story or is he just wearing it. I personally don't think actors should wear any additional things unless it is part of that character. However that's my opinion.

Finally, I'm glad EJ said that he did put Lucas in the freezer so we don't have to guess if it was really him or if he was under some mind spell. I'm glad that he knows that he is acting like a child. I feel like slapping him in the face and saying SNAP OUT OF IT. If you want her go get her but not like this. Poor thing really don't handle rejection well. I just don't understand why Sami insist on talking to him if she can't stand him. I want Sami and EJ together but I want the old passionate, head on her shoulder Sami back. I like that she is trying to be good but come on. This Sami is acting like a victim instead of an old villian.

Please tell me this feud will end soon. Right now the only good romance going on is Colleen and Santo and those characters are no longer living in the present.

OK, here's the big confession. When the show first started and he was seated there with the girls, I started typing "Andre." It just struck me that was who it was. Then when EJ came in and they started to talk I noticed the closed caption said "Tony," I had to do a bigger 180 than Lucas did at the end of the show and change everything. It was a worse case of whiplash than Max got with on-again off-again on-again Stephanie. In the show itself, they made it fairly clear they wanted viewers to think this was Tony, but I was never certain. Also in the show, Tony tells EJ he had the key for a little while and I kept trying to remember who had it when on the day Bart was killed. I really couldn't remember the whole scene, though. I walked away thinking there was a possibility this was Andre, but visually, they gave him more of the Tony "look." I guess we'll just have to see how this spine tingling drama plays out.

Hopefully we won't have to wait "four score and seven years" to come to the conclusion of the Santeen (or Collanto, which sounds like a great drink) saga.

Prevuze - just to ease your mind ('cause I know it will keep you awake, gnawing at your gizzard like Bart with an endless serving of pies), here is a reminder.

Tony ripped the key off of Stefano. Then, rather than stuffing it in a pocket or something, he dangled it in front of the old man to taunt him. This allowed Bart to grab it from him and swallow it.

Stephano told Tony that Andre got the folio from Dope.

The only reason I accepted it was Tony and not Andre was because of Roman's comment that Tony was a "womanizer". So we get to see Tony sitting there with the two very young women (who may or may not have been of age). Why don't I remember him being a womanizer??

Love the prevuze and looking forward to seeing EJ and Tony in a scene together.
