Eight-Balled

Belle and Phillip share a spiritual moment in the sanctuary. Belle calls it off, "We can't do this."

Phillip protests, "We can't not do it."

Shawn walks into the sanctuary of sleaze and finds them, "What's going on?"

Back at the pub, Bo silently reads the newspaper account of John's memorial. Abe comes up behind him, "It shouldn't have happened."

Bo agrees. Abe traced the car to a used car lot in Chicago. Some guy named Harry Jenkins bought it. He couldn't find any record for Harry. Abe wonders if the DiMeras hired someone without a record to do the evil deed. "Or it might have been a random hit and run," says Bo, "That would take the pressure off Sami to marry EJ."

EJ appreciates Lucas meeting him at the pub. Lucas scowls. EJ says when Sami is his wife they will all raise the children together.

"A cold day in hell," mumbles Lucas.

Marlena helps Sami into bed as she huffs and puffs. Sami isn't ready for this, "We haven't decorated the nursery yet. We wanted to, but his vendetta has taken over my whole life." Something else is about to keep her busy.

Bo gets a call from Ironpants. He tells Bo there is a problem.

"You mean beside the fact I have an idiot for a son," asks Bo. He tells Ironpants he will find Shawn and be right there.

Belle tells Shawn she was just lighting a candle. She claims Phillip is there for his own reason – to pray he's making the right decision about Tyler. Shawn says he saw her car outside and stopped in. Belle is soooo glad he is there. She asks for him to take her home. Shawn walks out with her.

EJ says Sami would never forgive Lucas if he fought her in court for custody of the twins. Lucas says, "You think when she's with you she's going to get the Stockholm syndrome and fall for her captor."

"You mean like beauty and the beast," asks EJ.

"That would fit," says Lucas, "Sami is beautiful and you're a beast, so that sums it up. You called me here to stick it to me, but you picked the wrong day."

Sami announces the time is NOW. Marlena says she will deliver them herself is necessary. She runs to get things ready.

EJ thinks Lucas is misconstruing his offer. He says he will raise the twins as if they are his own. Lucas remains calm, "You'll notice I'm not even making a fist to go a few rounds. Or suckerpunch anyone. You can also cut out your phony sympathy for John's death. You're probably just sorry it took this long for him to die. You wanted the job to be finished the night you shot him."

EJ claims he didn't shoot John, "You know, there never were any charges. Your attitude about all this could cause you a lot of suffering."

Lucas thinks that was a threat, "What're you gonna do, shoot me? Will I be the victim of a hit and run, too? Are you gonna stick me in another freezer truck?"

In the most recent poll, the viewers voted for all three.

Lucas' phone rings and interrupts his tirade. Sami tells him she's in labor. He has to get there now. Lucas asks to talk to Marlena.

"She can't come to the phone," whimpers Sami, "She's boiling water or something."

EJ demands to know what's going on with Sami.

Shawn and Belle walk out of the sanctuary of sin. Belle is cold. Shawn gives her his coat. He knows losing John must be a horrible dream for her.

Bo and Abe catch Lucas on the way out. Lucas tells them about Sami's labor. He leans in close and whispers, "Say, Bo, could you do me a favor?"

Sami wails, "I was really counting on that epidural." She huffs. She puffs, "I CAN'T! I CAN'T!" Oh yes she can. And will.

Lucas goes back over to EJ. EJ asks what the secret conversation with Bo was all about. Lucas says it was nothing, sticks out his hand and tells EJ he thinks they should call a truce. EJ thinks that's a great idea. He reaches out to shake Lucas' hand. SUCKERCUFF!

EJ stands there cuffed to the brass railing. Lucas says, "I'll be back with the key sometime around the twins' 14th birthday."

Sami tells Marlena she called Lucas. Marlena tries to be cheerful, "You're seven centimeters."

Writhing Sami isn't so cheerful, "LUCAS! LUCAS!"

Shawn asks if Belle found comfort in the sanctuary. Belle remembers her comforting moments with Phillip. She claims it was a coincidence Phillip was there. Suddenly, Shawn gets the call from Bo asking him to meet them at the station. Belle tells him she doesn't need a ride. Her car is there and she can manage by herself, "I've almost figured out what that strange word PNDR on the gearshift means." Smooches. Shawn says he has good news. The best. He'll tell her later. He walks her to her car as Phillip slinks.

Lucas is long gone. EJ asks for the keys to the handcuffs, "This is illegal. I am being held against my will."

Bo and Abe are quite amused. Bo says, "Someone will be around to take your order shortly." EJ growls. Bo asks, "Where is your sense of humor?"

"It left the building," says Elvis.

That really tickles Bo and Abe. Bo decides to help, "Abe, give me the key."

Abe plays dumb, "I thought you had it."

"Oh, Lucas must have the key," says Bo, "You'll just have to tough it out, EJ."

EJ screams, "This is outrageous!"

Bo gets testy, "No. JOHN'S DEATH IS OUTRAGEOUS!" EJ claims the DiMeras had nothing to do with it. Bo tells him to get used to being chained up, "Handcuffs and shackles are in your future."

"No," says EJ, "I'm not seeing Kate any more."

Sami doesn't want a doctor. She wants Lucas. Lucas rushes in. Marlena announces that, conveniently, the paramedics are delayed by a five-car pileup on the 70.

Sami breathes. Sami pushes. Head. Shoulders. Number one pops! A Boy! The little girl waits.

Phillip wanders through the sanctuary. He sits in a pew and prays. He believes the reason God kept him alive on the battlefield was for Belle.

Phillip flashes back to their, oh-so-happy first year together. That was everything Phillip ever wanted. He has never stopped loving her, "It's not about beating Shawn. I need Belle back in my life. Please, God, I'm asking for your help."

GLORY HALLELUJAH! Belle walks back into the sanctuary. Her car won't start.

Bo and Shawn meet at the station. Ironpants walks in and bellows, "Shawn, your enrollment in the police academy has been postponed pending further review." Suddenly, that's not iron in Shawn's pants.

Ironpants has discovered Shawn defied a court order earlier in the year and fled the country with Belle and Claire, "I can understand running away with Claire, but if you ran away with Belle, I don't think you're what we're looking for at the SPD."

Phillip and Belle arrive home. Phillip personally vouches for old Smokey the mechanic. He's the best in town since Max is out of business. Belle apologizes for the mess in the place as she straightens the bed.

Bo wants to know who brought this to Ironpants' attention. Ironpants isn't at liberty to say. Shawn argues he should be able to face his accusers. Ironpants says it will all come out when the case comes before the trustees. "I have a right to know who eight-balled my boy," says Bo. As he leaves, Ironpants says Shawn's rejection is far from a done deal.

Bo tells Shawn, "Ironpants is just doing his job. We'll fight this."

"No," says Shawn, "I'm going to fight this and I will do what I should have done a long time ago."

Phillip helps Belle make the bed. "Just like old times," says Belle. He tells Belle he's still in love with her. She thinks he'd better leave. He wonders if she's afraid he might kiss her if he stays.

Kate walks in and finds EJ yanking on the cuffs. He tells her Sami is in labor and asks for her help. "Gee," says Kate, "I left my bolt cutters in my other purse. Call a locksmith. I'm going to see my grandchildren."

Roman Thomas is born. Sami decides that's not the name she wants. She tells Lucas they should name him John. That's OK with Lucas. Sami introduces John Roman Roberts to Marlena.

Tom Horton looks down on the scene, "You win some, you lose some."

More pain. Lucas grabs John Roman.

EJ tells Kate he has a right to be there when the babies are born. Kate tells him to stuff it and says she is off to the hospital. EJ informs her that's not where they are. He will make a deal and help her if she helps him. No need... he yanks the pipe loose and the two of them head for Midwife Marlena's Maternity Emporium.

Sami screams. The blood drains from Marlena's face, "No more pushing, Sami."

Sami screams, "Mom, tell me what is wrong."

"The cord is wrapped around her neck. No pushing."

Bo asks what sonny boy is gonna do. Shawn says he knows who narced on him, "I walked into the sanctuary and found Phillip and Belle doing a lot more than praying."

"I thought that was over," says Bo.

"Phillip and Belle, maybe," says Shawn, "But Belle's other personalities haven't gotten with the program."

Phillip takes the blame for the marriage falling apart, but he thinks she and Shawn were to blame, too, "Shawn was the only one in your thoughts."

"I was fooling myself," says Belle, "It's easy to do." Phillip thinks he was fooling himself, too. He says he should have called her on it. Belle thinks that would have just speeded up their separation.

Phillip thinks they might've worked things out, "Walking away was the biggest mistake of my life. Well, maybe except for walking through that minefield." He thinks it's not too late to get back together. Belle insists she is with Shawn now. Phillip argues, "You want me as much as I want you. Why are you fighting it?"

Sami worries the baby could suffocate. Marlena gets things untangled. Lucas is so proud of Sami.

Number two pops. Marlena announces, "She's gonna be fine." Did you ever expect anything else?

Belle thinks this is wrong. Phillip says he isn't talking about sneaking around. He wants a second chance. "You're just confusing me," says Belle, "I kissed you back because you make me feel safe. Plus, I like being confused."

Phillip says, "You don't feel the same with Shawn as you do with me. If you did, you would have slapped me instead of kissing back. I love you more than anything. I want to make love to you."

"Go!"

Phillip wonders if she means 'Go' as in 'Leave' or 'Go' as in 'Go ahead,' "You want me to walk out of your life? I've done it before. You're the only one who can stop me."

Sami admires the kids. She thanks Marlena for saving the day. She can't wait to be home as a family.

EJ and Kate walk in. Marlena tells them to have the good manners to get out.

Bo tries to slow Shawn down. Shawn thinks Belle is fragile right now. He swears he won't stand by and watch any more. He's gonna find Phillip and make him admit he ratted him out.

Phillip says he will stay out of her life for good if she gives the word. Belle closes the door, "I don't want you to leave. I couldn’t bear it if I never saw you again." Kiss.

Marlena wants EJ and Kate to leave. EJ thinks the babies may have had different fathers. He leaves. Kate tells Lucas, "I know you are still angry with me, but I am so happy for you." Pan in on Lucas, Sami and the litter.

Oh goody, now the babies are born and Sami can get back to whining about more important things. Like how hard it is to take care of the twins, when we all know we better look quick because we won't see these kids again for a long time.

Of course she'll be back to her prebaby bod about 20 min after she delivers.

Interesting how EJ chooses this moment to announce he thinks the babies have different fathers. Of course WE have known it all along.

Ah, nice to see that as always, Lucas got there first.

I'm sure a fake paternity storyline is brewing, but the fact that Lucas was present for both birth and the rapist wasn't, tells me that these are both Lumibabies.

DOOL writers came up with this one? Pretty funny.

Marlena announces that, conveniently, the paramedics are delayed by a five-car pileup on the 70.

Unless Marlena lives in the middle of a cornfield 50 miles west of Salem, there is no way the paramedics should have been stuck on the highway in a traffic jam. Oh, by the way, the ambulance could have legally gone around the accident by using the shoulder of the road. Obviously, Lucas, EJ, and Kate consulted Map Quest to get to Marlena’s crib and requested a route without highways.

I don’t know nothin’ ‘bout birthing babies but how did Marlena know how many centimeters Sami was dilated? Marlena is not an OB/GYN nor does she play one on television. Boiling water? As if!

Great Prevuze!!!

A thought occurred to me over the weekend ... What if, now that John is dead (supposedly), Marlena agrees to marry Stefano to end the vendetta and spare her daughter from marrying EJ???

6:16 AM  
Blogger cfish said...

Some further thoughts --

If Marlena marries Stefano to end the vendetta, then that gives EJ the chance to get all PO'd at his father for "cheating" him out of what he was promised -- Sami. Then EJ can sever his ties with Stefano and start his own vendetta. And since Lucas and Sami have both signed the annullment papers, they of course will have to get re-married, hence the marriage between the "two of these people" that was promised in the promos a while back.

Babies, yes!!!!

I agree with Deb about EJ choosing now to announce he thinks the twins have 2 fathers. Maybe he got a peak at the DNA report Stefano has. Why didn't he bring up this issue long ago since he was trying to convince Sami he was the father?

Belle and Phillip. Please resolve this triangle for once and for all. I can't imagine two adult men wanted to coddle this bipolar potatoe.

You're right, Leslie. The paramedics who couldn't manage to get to Marlena's should've just had Bo and Kayla guide them since they were able to go directly to a cave in the middle of the vast American west to find Sexfannie and Max! HAHAHAHA

Not only Dr. Tom, but I wonder what Roman will think of having to take second name to John?

Excellent Prevuze and pictures today. I LOL over the viewers voting for all three types of demise for Lucas (shooting, hit and run and freezer truck).

I'm usually as confused as Belle on a gloomy Monday but I bet I know what PNDR means! Prevuze Naughty but Nice Daily Report?

Suddenly that's not iron in Shawn's pants. LOLOL That will keep me chuckling all day.

It's refreshing to see there is someone in the SPD with some common sense. Of course, that means that Ironpants won't last long. And why would anyone have to "narc" Jr.? How could there be anyone left in Salem who hadn't heard about Shawn and his motorcycle incidents or his running away with Claire?

John Roman Roberts. JR. Roamin' Roberts. Yeah, there are some possibilities there.

Thanks for the Prevuze, Prevuze.

Ok, so the scenes of John departing - were very touching! And even after - when Marlena was at home and thinking back, still more touching... But has anyone really accepted the fact that John is gone? I know I haven't, and obviously Belle hasn't, heck, she's jumping in the sack with Phil!!! (The LAST thing I'd be thinking of after my dad just died - is having s*x)... I know, the writers want us to believe she is CONFUSED!!!! (Men must be writing this stuff!!!) - Belle walks around in a state of constant confusion - so what's new? And what about poor Claire? Where is she, who has her? Why doesn't Belle think about her daughter for a change? Poor Claire, it is a given this kid's in store for future psychiatric visits.
Beleive me, I love the idea of Belle and Phillip - instead of Shawn, but can the viewers actually take having to watch Shawn pining after Belle again (lost puppy dog syndrom). Didn't we go through that whole 'live with the hooker' for spite - thing once already???

Prevuze - GREAT, GREAT job, as usual!

why is Belle and Philip in a bedroom. That's where I want to be with my ex-husband after he kissed me in a church. Boy this writing is getting awfull. Also I am sorry to dissapoint Lumi fans but I think there is going to be one baby that is going to be Lucus's and one that is EJ as it should have been from the begginning after all the twins are fraternal but DOOL does like to drag things out. Like can we please get EJ and sami married please. This flip flopping of marrying and not marring to end the vendatta is looking like a presidential race. ;> ;>

Ok, for all of you out there that don't know how twins are classified, fraternal twins come from 2 fertilized eggs, where identical twins come from 1 fertilized egg. Fraternal twins can be either 2 boys, 2 girls or 1 boy and 1 girl. Identical twins are always 2 boys or 2 girls. I'm a mother of fraternal twin girls and that's how I know this! Anyway, I'm glad Sami is FINALLY having these babies and Lucas was there for it!!! LUMI forever!

I'm a mother of identical twins and your classification is correct.

I have been out of town and just caught up on my Wed - Friday shows last week. I paused it, made popcorn and rewound and watched Lucas punch EJackel in the gut three or four times! That was great! Finally a little show of manly man-ness! I wished after he handcuffed him he would have given him a right hook across that smartass smirky face! The dude torques my shorts!

I agree, Marlena can't marry Stefano, she's not a Brady!

I think they did a great job with John's death and really for all the viewers sake, I hope he's dead and doesn't come back from the dead, or pull a Bonnie and Alex North and come back as some recycled actor.

I would be more impressed with Lucas so-called "manliness" if he wasn't always sucker punching EJ, or using others to play such juvenile pranks on his rivals.

Shame on Bo and Abe. They would be a disgrace to any police department!

According to the law, EJ has not been indicted for any crime. It doesn't matter what they're personal opinion of him or his family members are, but, as police officers, they are breaking the law by abusing their authority, and EJ was perfectly right to protest their actions.

Also, Lucas should have been arrested a myriad of times for assaulting EJ. Fortunately, EJ has had the good sense not to bound that sneaky little coward into the ground, otherwise that Lucas Robert private police department would have arrested the victim(EJ) rather than the protector.

I hope that BOTH the babies are EJ's and that EJ starts kicking some smug, self-righteous Brady and Roberts backside!

If I recall, the last time I heard Belle mention Claire's name it was in her car in the alley outside the clinic. She called Shawn and her mom and said somebody needed to pick up claire cause she was working at the clinic. Next we know, John's hit trying to get keys out of Belle's car, there's a funeral and the story just continues. Did anybody remember to pick up Claire?

EJ is so dumb. Babies can be born and not look like the father or mother. Sometimes they look like a grandparent, aunt, or uncle. And since they are fraternal it wouldn't be a big deal if they don't look alike. EJ is so getting on my nerves. BTW, did anyone see on HSN that Kristian Alphonso has a clothing line? I was channel surfing and saw her on there.

Actually, Sami wouldn't need two uteri in order to have twins with different fathers. It's called heteropaternal superfecundation. Although rare, particularly in humans, it does happen.
