The Marriage From Hell

Trick or treaters walk through Salem in really scary costumes, carrying big packages to hold their candy. They go from door to... oops... sorry... it's just Chelsea and Stephanie meeting up. Nick isn't helping them move into the sorority house because he couldn't find a sitter for Artemis and DeMarquette.

Stephanie thinks they could have left some of the heavy stuff for Nick. They're excited about living in the IFT house. They decide to go in and find out if they are rooming together.

Ford invites Max to their next frat party. The girls come in and Morgan runs up to greet them. She tells them there are two beds available. One is upstairs in a single room, and one is with Cordy. Chelsea decides to room with Cordy. She leaves Stephanie to lug her stuff upstairs. Stephanie watches Max and Morgan and stews.

Kate status: Not Disowned.

Kate looks at her grandkids in the nursery. Nincomplucas comes up. Kate begs, "They're my grandchildren, Lucas. Please don't shut me out of their lives."

Sami sits up in bed eating something green. We'd best not go there. EJ walks in. Sami insists Lucas is the twins' father. EJ is positive he fathered one of them. They argue. EJ says, "You have to admit your son is the spitting image of me."

Sami says, "Shut up. We're going to get something straight right now."


The girls unpack in Chelsea's room. Stephanie thinks Morgan and Max are getting serious. Chelsea says, "We both know you have feelings for Max."

Stephanie doesn't want to talk about it. She suggests asking Cordy to move so they can be roommates. They go out into the main area to party.

Max asks, "Are Chelsea and Stephanie are moving in?"

"No," says Morgan, "They just hauled ten tons of stuff in here because we're having a rummage sale."

Max seems preoccupied. Morgan asks, "Is there something I should know about?"

Kate status: Not Disowned.

Kate thanks Lucas for staying.

"I still want you out of my life," he growls.

Kate status: Disowned.

She asks if her grandkids are going to be banished from her life as well. Lucas says one of them may not be his. Kate says he will be the father no matter whose kid it is. Lucas tells her they found the guy who hit John. It was Andre's cellmate.

"So Sami was right," says Kate, "The DiMeras killed John. Is Stefano going to get away with it again? If it is Stefano, that is." Lucas is positive it was. Kate says he doesn't know that for sure, "Stefano has always enjoyed playing with his victims, not killing them." Lucas thinks Kate should be happy about the situation. She says she isn't.

Sami tells EJ the son doesn't look like him, "He could start talking with a British accent and that wouldn't change my mind." She says their marriage will be in name only. She also tells him about John's murderer being Andre's old cellmate. EJ claims he doesn't know anything about it. He says he can't speak for Stefano, however. Sami tells him he's probably glad he's got her under his thumb. EJ says he doesn't. He fell in love with her because she is her own person. He asks her to make the best of it, as something similar to Santeen music plays in the background. Sami says she wants nothing to do with him, but she is stuck with him, "If I were you, I'd be prepared for the marriage from hell."

Max tells Morgan he has already told her everything about Stephanie. Morgan presses. Max goes through the Jeremy thing, "So what if I told you I wanted to go back to her?"

"Then," says Morgan, "I'd be on my merry way."

"And what if I said I'm not having any more encounters with Stephanie," he asks.

Morgan smiles, "Then I might want to hang exclusively."

Stephanie goes up to check out her room. Ford asks Chelsea where she is going. Upstairs. "What," gasps Ford, "With a party goin' on down here?" He tells her Cordy has serious issues. He says he spent a bundle on dinner, she ate two bites and wanted to leave. He thinks she's weird and insecure. Suddenly, slime oozes, "But I think you're the kind of girl who would want to stay to the end of dinner and maybe have dessert."

News Bulletin! Sami tells EJ she is just doing this to end the vendetta. News Bulletin! EJ wants to fall in love but will accept the fact it won't happen. He asks if she thinks he's happy to marry a woman who hates him. Sami knows what the stakes are. EJ advises her not to mess with this, "John black is dead because you changed your mind."

"Gee," says Sami, "And I thought it was because a car slammed into him."

Kate status: Disowned.

Lucas lectures Kate. He says she never could let him make his own decisions. He knows she tried everything to keep him away from Sami, "We would have already been married for years if not for you. I kept forgiving you because you're my mother. You repay me by getting involved with Stefano. I've already filled out the forms. From now on I'm Lucas Horton. I'm through being your son."

Kate status: Disowned and disgraced.

Kate sulks off. Lucas catches up and says she forced him to do this. Kate insists she loves him. Lucas thinks maybe she does in her own little way. Kate is desperate. She agrees to stop seeing Stefano, even though she needs the money. She will prove she had nothing to do with Sami marrying EJ. She breaks down, "I can't lose you."

Kate status: Up in the air.

Cold-hearted Lucas Horton says, "You already have."

Kate status: Disowned.

Sami says, "Welcome back EJ."

"Huh?"

"That's the real EJ I just heard," says Sami, "You're threatening again."

EJ says it's not a threat. He was just reminding her what happened with John. He wants her to decide if she is truly committed to ending the vendetta. If she isn't, he thinks she will spend the rest of her life looking over her shoulder, "Stefano won't walk away from his decision. Choose wisely, Samantha."

Chelsea laughs at the dessert remark. She thinks it was a lot like something Jeremy would say, "We're so not happening, Ford." Lucky guy.

Max asks, "Are you asking me out?"

Morgan says, "That depends on whether you are really available."

"If I am?"

"You should talk to Stephanie," says Morgan.

"I don't need to," says Max, "She chose Jeremy and I think I'm choosing you. But your family is wealthy. They won't want you dating a bartender. A half-witted girl-smuggling ring dupe would be OK, but a bartender – never."

"They'd get over it," says Morgan, "Maybe I can make you happy in return."

Max makes his decision, "Your parents will have to deal with it. I don't want to see anyone else. Lets give it a shot." Kiss. Stephanie watches.

Cordy walks through the room. Ford grabs her arm, "Hey, wanna dance?"

"EEEEEEKKKKKKK!" Cordy peels out. The shocked crowd watches.

Stephanie and Chelsea run after Cordy. Morgan asks Ford what he did.

Ford plays dumb, "I just asked her to dance and she flipped out." Morgan says it's guys like Ford who give the Greek system a bad rep. Morgan heads for Cordy's room as Max gives Ford the evil eye.

Cordy sits in her room in the fetal position and cries. Morgan asks her to unlock the door. Cordy doesn't budge so Morgan uses her passkey. She stoops down and asks what's wrong. Cordy says she is just tired.

"Of what," asks Morgan.

"Of this place," bawls Cordy, "...Of school." She informs them she dropped all her classes and is leaving.

Kate status: Disowned.

Little Johnny and the nameless girl fuss. Kate watches, "Goodbye my darlings." She tells Lucas she's leavening as the nurse wheels the twins out for dinner. She gives them to Lucas to take to Sami. Kate thinks he's going to be a wonderful father. She walks off. Lucas tells her to wait.

Kate status: Up in the air.

EJ insists he isn't trying to pressure Sami, "I just want us to get married ASAP." He thinks if they fly to Santo Domingo she can be divorced within 24 hours. Sami says she will talk to Lucas about it.

Ford makes the rounds. He walks up to Carmen and whispers in her ear. Carmen's jaw hits the floor and she takes off. Max goes up to Ford, "Not having much luck with the ladies?"

"It's not that," says Ford, "I'm just trying to be nice. You know, my date was crazy."

"Are you talking about her or yourself," asks Max.

"Sorority girls want to play with fire, but cry when they get burned," says Ford. He leaves to grace another girl with his presence.

Morgan tries to convince Cordy to stay in school. Stephanie says she knows what it feels like to be used and dumped. Chelsea asks if this is about Ford. Cordy doesn't answer. Morgan says they will support her. If she needs anything at all they are there for her. Cordy cries. They decide they are going to all miss each other. Chelsea wants to have a goodbye party. Cordy just wants to be alone, so they all leave.

Outside, Morgan has an epiphany, "Something isn't right. We'll just leave her alone tonight and maybe tomorrow she'll talk about it."

Sami decides she wants to get divorced in Salem. It will mean so much more to her. EJ thinks that will take months. Stefano will think she is stalling.

Kate status: Toss up.

Lucas brings Johnny in. EJ moves toward Lucas and the kid but Sami cuts him off, "Don't you take one more step towards my child." EJ freezes. Lucas wants to know why he is still there. Kate brings the girl in. Sami holds them both, and tells Kate it's OK for her to spend some time with them. Lucas takes the opportunity to run out into the hallway and short-sheet their cribs.

Kate status: Foot in the door.


Sami asks which one Kate thinks looks most like Lucas. Kate thinks it's the boy. Sami agrees. EJ wretches. So does Johnny. Sami and Lucas smooch. EJ thinks the girl is as beautiful as her mother.

"What are you doing here," asks Lucas. EJ decides he has overstayed his welcome and leaves.

"What was that all about," asks Lucas.

Morgan instructs a group of girls to be there for Cordy's exit.

Chelsea asks Ford why Cordy wigged out. "I don't know," says Ford, "I'm telling you, she needs meds in a big way." He walks off.

Max tells Stephanie he thinks Ford reminds him of Jeremy. Stephanie is worried about Cordy. Morgan jumps in. Max promises to watch out for the girls. Translation: Look out, girls. Max says he can't stand Ford's type of guy. Morgan and Max go off. Chelsea tells Stephanie she has to tell Max how she feels. Stephanie is tired of guys who don't want her. Max and Morgan watch as she storms out. Chelsea chases.

Kate status: Invisible.

Lucas grills Sami about EJ. Sami doesn't want to talk about it. Lucas thanks her for giving him two of the most beautiful kids he has ever seen, "They will be smart like their mommy."

Sami smiles, "Don't you mean like their daddy?"

"Only if their brains stop developing right now."

The most important thing to Lucas is Sami's happiness. Sami breaks down. She loves him and always will. Smooch. EJ listens from outside.

Kate has had enough. She starts to leave and thanks them for letting her spend time with her grandchildren. Sami tells her she can stay if she wants. Feel the love.

Kate status: One big happy family.

EJ seethes and walks away from the door, "Isn't that lovely? On the other hand that gives me a wonderful idea."

Chelsea goes into Cordy's room. She pretends to be looking for her MP3. She makes small talk with Cordy, "How did your parents feel when you told them your decision?"

"My dad was furious and my mother cried."

"Ford tried to hit on me," says Chelsea.

Cordy reels in shock, "OMG! DON'T LET HIM!" This naturally piques Chelsea's curiosity but Cordy, of course, doesn't want to talk about it. She wants Chelsea to let her alone.

Chelsea says, "If you change your mind..."

Cordy cuts her off, "I won't." Chelsea leaves. Cordy sits and stares.

Outside, Chelsea tells Morgan Cordy won't talk. "Maybe tomorrow," says Morgan, "after the suicide." She asks about Stephanie and Chelsea says she wasn't feeling well so she went home.

Once again, Carmen shoves Ford, "Get away from me, Decker!" Max tells him to get out.

"This party is dead anyway," says Ford. He leaves as Carmen thanks Max. Max turns to Morgan, "I don't like Ford."

"I'm a Chevy girl myself."

Chelsea's phone rings. She listens and hangs up, then announces that was a call from campus security. The person told her she left her car lights on, so she has to go out to turn them off. Max offers to go with her. No need, of course.

As Chelsea heads into the abyss, Morgan thanks Max for looking out for the sisters. She asks him to go out and check on Chelsea.

Outside, Chelsea fumbles for her keys. THE DREADED GLOVE CLAMPS HER MOUTH.

DOOL must be trying to save the planet.
Every day Brian and Allison get a single piece of paper instead of a script.
The paper reads:
Sami and Lucas argue about the divorce and Sami's marriage to EJ.

Over at I-Felta-Thigh, everyone who DIDN'T see this date rape storyline coming a mile away raise your hand . . . .
*~~*~*Crickets*~*~~*

Yeah I thought so.

The only question is, are the DOOL writers, in their cute little clumsy way, TRYING to make us think the rapist is Ford but will pull a switch-a-roo and have it be someone else? Or, in their subtle-as-a-sledgehammer way simply telegraphing the fact that Ford IS the rapist?

Loved the progression of the Kate Status reports; Lucas short-sheeting the twins' cribs; the picture of his tragic end; and MaryKay's contributions today.

Thanks, Prevuze. As always it was a hoot!

"If I were you, I'd be prepared for the marriage from hell."

Since this is the soap opera from hell, what more can you expect EJ? What more can the viewers expect? Memo to writers: We get it.

This whole Kate thing has got my head spinning. She has spent a life time hating Sami and now, suddenly, she wants Lucas and Sami together. Apparently, the sex with Stefano wasn’t that good because now she’s ready to turn her back on him. All of this for Nincomplucas who is showing his gratitude by changing his last name. Prevuze, you need to put a glossary together

With the disappearance of Jeremy, Ford has become the resident hunk jerk. I guess every soap opera needs a jerky hunk or two or three………..

Okay, now that Lucas has changed his name to Horton, isn't this the perfect time for it to be revealed that he is a DiMera, and hence the terms of the vendetta are met, and everyone lives happily ever after? I mean, November sweeps ARE coming up ...

Theme of the day- writing with subtlety and coming up with innovative and original storylines-


NO!NO!NO!

Bring on Applecheek's sledgehammer, pass Deb's single piece of paper to the writers, just beat us over the head with tired storylines and lame, redundant conversations. Are we gluttons for punishment or are we cautiously optomistic that our DOOL will rise out of the stinking outhouse it has fallen into? I love DOOL and just want to care again and have some quality stories that I can't figure out the ending 10 minutes into the SL.

Speaking of changing names...EJ is so certain that one of the kids is his and said "he will be raised as a DiMera" or something like that. Why doesn't EJ change his own last name to DiMera? It's not like it's a big secret that he's Stephano's son.

The whole sorority/frat/college story line is so stupid and unrealistic. I doubt the writers have gone to college. Actually I picture the writers as 85-year-old men who have no clue that life is different now than it was in 1950. Like they don't acknowledge the existence of birth control, they refer to female college students as "co-eds", men boss their wives/girlfriends around, etc.

Wasn't anyone else concerned when the first baby was born and it never made a sound? Aren't they supposed to cry to get air or something? At least the girl made some soft crying noises. I mean after all, these are Sami's babies, Belle's niece and nephew and Marlena's grandkids. They should be bawling up a storm. HA

I loved Lucas' backfired prank and the already mentioned Prevuzisms. Prevuze' status: Priceless!

Great one, Frog. You'd think with all the writing talent around, they would be able to find someone to write a good soap opera.

Another Rape Storyline? Really? leading up to another pregnancy storyline....another whose your daddy storyline....

Speaking of which, did we ever finish the Santeen storyline? I cant remember.

And lastly, how come every time I hear the name Lucas Horton a little voice in my head says "Horton hears a Who"?

Is there anyone in Salem that hasn't been confused by the paternity of their kid? Alice maybe?? Jeez even Caroline was a little hussy and did the deed with someone other than Mr. Caroline.
Oh well, another great prevuze capped off by some great comments.
And we are back to the gloved one. Was there every any follow through with the original "gloved one"? I didn't think so. So, is it the same glove? Is is the same person? I'm so confused.

I have been watching DOOL for a few years now, but I don't understand why Lucas is a Horton, can someone, I guess I don't know who Kate claims is his dad.

For as much as Sami says she hates the DiMera's and on and on and on. I agree that Lucas is probably a love child of Kate and Stefano's, and is really a DiMera himself.
I agree the college life storyline is very boring.
Thanks Prevuze, I love taking my morning break at work and having a great laugh.

Kate said Lucas' father is Bill Horton, son of Alice and Tom Horton. They had an affair when he was still married to Laura or when Laura was in the mental institution, I forget.

Anyway, if it turns out he is a DiMera after all will he have to drop his ornament from the Horton Christmas tree?

I think this "gloved one" is going to have something to do with Artemis and DeMarquette, since they kidnap Chelsea and lure Nick into the bomb trap.

First of all, I saw the scenes with the twins today--this girl is supposed to be fat? In what world? She looked healthy-as in not anorexic-to me.

Secondly, cfish--what is supposed to happen with Chelsea being kidnapped? Or did I miss something?

What is the deal with these Writers. I'm becoming so bored with LUMI right now. Come on, And get the freaking Divorce already?! There is to much contradiction with the writing. Samantha knows she has feeling for EJ? And yet she would not even let him hold his own Child (or better yet, Twins). If EJ's such a freaking Monster, You should have filed Rape Charges?! Samantha likes playing the "Selfless Martyr at EJ's expense. It's Starting to get annoying.

The Sorority Storyline is another snoozeville hack job. And people wonder why DOOL's rating are at rock bottom. :(

Brendamouse that isn’t even the best spoiler. Supposedly, Stefano is going to run off to Italy with the EJAMI baby after their wedding from hell. For those who can’t wait until Christmas to open their gifts, I would suggest a visit to the Days of our Lives Café.

Please, no more rapes! No more mystery pregnancies. Enough of that.
Jeeze, buy a script already.
I'm getting to the point of only watching because I've read the hilarious spoiler from the day before and getting a few more laughs.
That fight between Philip and Shawn was a doozy. Poor Caroline, she hasn't had that much excitement in a long time.
OffTopic but...
this has probably been hashed out before, but Shawn and Hope really do look like mother and son. Both their cheekbones are so razor sharp, I'd hate to see them get too close together...it could be a massacre.

Sami says rape, but as I remember it, it was a negotitation between her and EJ, if she gave in and had sex with EJ, he would help her save Lucas. And Sami agreed to these terms and told him to hurry up and get it over with.
It was only after the whole "act" was found out, that she started to cry rape.
She saw it as doing what she had to do to save Lucas, but she was afraid nobody else would see it that way, so she called rape.
Am I right about this, or totally off base?

Uh, EJ had a gun on her the whole time, threatening her during the whole thing. I would consider that rape, on top of extortion!!!

Oh for heavens sake, it was rape. Rape doesn't always entail someone being dragged into bushes with some gloved person covering their mouths.

My advice is to watch less Lifetime, because with that logic you can consider most kidnappings, negotiations.

I don't get it. I'm so sick of people thinking that just because Sami gave into some kind of negotiation, she can't call it rape. If it's a legal technicality, then fine, it's NOT rape. But the feeling is the same.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Fyi... As soon as EJ told Sami what he wanted from her she called it rape. She also called it rape immediately after. She has always referred to what he did to her as rape. It was rape. EJ didn't even deny it at the time. It was EJ who tried to spin it as something else after the fact, not Sami.

What is with all the LUCAS baSHING PREVUZE? EJ is the one you should constantly be bashing. There nothing stupid about Lucas. Lucas is looking after his wife and his children. He is an honorable, loving husband and father and he isn't what your trying to make him out to be! You keep harping on one or two practical jokes he did a YEAR ago just to try to make him seen retarded when he isn't! It's SO OLD! It's not funny at all! It never was! I just can't believe your STILL frying Lucas day after day when he is the good guy trying to save his family while boosting the rapist up to seem like he is so much better than Lucas when he ISN'T! Rag on the rapist! Not the intelligent, loving,caring husband!
