Psycho Women Who Kill Men

EJ tries his key in the DiMera mansion door, but it doesn't work. He rings the doorbell and Rolf answers. EJ asks why someone changed the locks. Rolf says Stefano did not say and also claims Stefano is not there. Rolf won't let EJ in. He slams the door in his face.

Sami remembers reading Lucas' note. Roman interrupts her obsessive moment. Sami wants him to help find Lucas. Roman tells her Lucas is with Kate.

Stephanie remembers talking to Max at the Christmas party. She cries as Max knocks at her door. Stephanie ignores him until he threatens to stay there until she answers. Inside, he apologizes for just dropping in. He suggests bagels and a latte's. She's not hungry. Max thinks it's more than that. He wants to know what's going on as Stephanie flashes to her night from hell. She cries and hugs Max.

Nick finds Chelsea asleep on a couch. He kisses her and she wakes up. He hands her a cup of coffee. Chelsea says she is cold, so Nick offers to light a fire. She wants him to light her fire. She thinks last night was perfect. Nick finally got it right in bed. She's looking for seconds. She gets things started, but an angry knock interrupts. Nick answers to find Crawford. He barges in, "Where is my son?"

Roman tells Sami how he deduced Lucas is with Kate. "This is all Kate's idea," says Sami.

"You're right," says Roman, "For one thing, we know Lucas isn't capable of an original idea. Where did he say he was going?"

"He said he was going to see Will," says Sami, "He lied."

Roman tells her he has issued an APB on Lucas, "We will find him and when we do, we're gonna have to arrest Lucas for attempted murder." Sami bawls.

EJ sneaks into the mansion from the balcony door. He remembers telling Stefano he hasn't shared his Brady plan. EJ wonders what Stefano is up to as he snoops around. He starts to rifle through Stefano's desk. We see feet approaching and then the mystery figure conks EJ from the back. EJ hits the deck.

Stephanie says, "I'm sorry for acting like a head case."

"With you, it's not an act," says Max, "I just want to know what's going on. You didn't do anything wrong. People bury dead bodies in the basement every day." Stephanie says she knows why Cordy is acting like she is. She understands why Cordy now pushes men away. Max thinks Stephanie is rejecting him in the same way.

Nick sticks out his hand to introduce himself. Crawford ignores it. He badgers Chelsea. "I know you are the one who organized the witch hunt against my son.

She defends her actions, "I did it because I have the personality to lead witches and, besides, your son was a rapist."

Crawford picks right up on that, "What do you mean was?". We have a flashback to Ford's death. Crawford asks, "What did you do to my son?"

Nick tells him to back off. Crawford wants to call security. Chelsea says she doesn't know where Ford is and she agrees they should call Billie. Crawford gives her the third degree. He thinks they took matters into their own hands. Crawford goes upstairs to search the place while they're waiting for Billie to arrive. Nick tells her, "Everything will be OK because he's not going to find anything." Chelsea is silent. Nick presses, "He's not going to find anything is he?"

"Of course not," she whines.

Max thinks Stephanie hasn't been herself lately. She knows she's been sending mixed signals. She claims she's worried about Cordy. She over-defends Cordy to the point Max asks if Ford did something to hurt her.

Sami begs Roman not to arrest Lucas. Roman says he has no choice.

Stefano finds EJ on the floor, "A man should never drink before lunch, Elvis." EJ says he wasn't drinking. He knows someone hit him.

Stefano says, "I know. Get up." He helps him. Stefano says his houseguest hit him. He wonders why EJ was searching the desk. Outside the door, the guest listens. "My houseguest is very thorough," says Stefano.

EJ asks who the guest is. Stefano says he will find out in due time. EJ says he was in the desk looking for what Stefano meant when he said Johnny would be well taken care of. Stefano insists Johnny is a DiMera and will be raised according to tradition. He doesn't like the fact Sami will be raising a DiMera heir. EJ insists they will do it their way.

Rolf interrupts, "Stefano, our guest was, uh... in the yard. Fortunately, I was able to usher him in before he left." Stefano rages about what would happen if he gets out. EJ is puzzled.

Sami wants to keep this in the family. Roman tells Sami to stay in her apartment while he goes to look for Lucas. When he finds Lucas he will send a car for her, "Just hang in there."

Chelsea insists she just wants this thing with Ford to be over. Nick goes to check for Billie. Chelsea paces. She remembers Max suggesting they bury Ford in the basement and then leaving dressed as Ford.

Max asks if Ford forced himself on Stephanie. She starts to answer, but her phone rings. Saved by the bell. Chelsea tells her Crawford is there. She wants her and Max over there tout de suite.

Crawford asks where the cellar is. Chelsea hems and haws and says they don't have a wine cellar. Crawford loses patience and says she knows what he is talking about. "There is nothing down there," says Chelsea. But if you go down, you might want to take a can of air freshener."

Billie interrupts. She asks Crawford to leave. He says he isn't going anywhere. Billie threatens to arrest him. Crawford asks, "Do you have any idea what it is not to know where your child is?"

"Yes, I do," says Billie, "I also know how horrible it can be when you find the child. But I can't allow you to search without a warrant."

Ford tosses accusations, "You're protecting Chelsea. You've done it before when you claimed to be driving the car that hit Zack."

"I made a mistake," says Billie.

"Are you sure you're not making another one," asks Crawford.

Billie is backed into a corner, "I'll ignore your offensive comments, especially since they are true. I have reviewed the surveillance tapes, and they show your son leaving." She drags out her computer and shows him the tape, "He never shows up on the tapes at his dorm or anywhere else on campus, so he must have left the campus that night." Crawford says he can't see Ford's face on the tape, and wonders if that really was him. He says the tape won't hold up as evidence in a court of law.

Billie tells him to leave. He refuses. Billie threatens to have him arrested. "You do that," says Crawford, "And I promise, you'll be back on the streets." A referee throws a flag and penalizes Crawford for unsportsmanlike conduct. A review of the play, however, indicates Billie had indeed been out on the streets at one time, so the line judge overrules the call.

Max hopes Chelsea will call Billie and buy them some time. Stephanie thinks they are going to prison, "Crawford will make the Theta girls look like psycho women who kill men."

"That should be pretty easy," says Max, "I don't think that's a mannequin in the basement."

EJ listens through the door as Stefano lectures the guest. He tells him can't just roam around, "If you show your face they will hurt you!" When Stefano comes out EJ asks who the guest is, but Stefano says he has to keep it secret. He agrees to raise Johnny the way Elvis wants to. EJ thanks him.

Stefano pours a drink to seal the deal, but Rolf interrupts. He announces that the police have issued a warrant for Lucas' arrest, "They think Lucas shot Elvis."

Stefano gasps and turns to EJ, "For your wife's sake I hope she's not stupid enough to take off with my grandson."

"She's stupid enough," says EJ, "But she didn't," he excuses himself.

Nick demands an apology. Crawford refuses. He thinks Billie is in on the cover-up, "Cameras lie just like people do." He heads for the cellar but Chelsea reminds him he can't search the place without a warrant.

Billie asks him to leave. Crawford vows, "I will be back."

Douglas MacArthur steps in and says, "You're supposed to say, 'I shall return.'"

Arnold Schwarzenegger muscles in and says, "No. You give them a cold stare and say, 'I'll-be-back.'"


The General and the Terminator duke it out as Crawford gives them a parting shot, "God help you if you've hurt my son." He leaves.

EJ knocks at Sami's door. He rushes in. Sami notices he's missing something – his wheel chair. She asks why he isn't faking anymore.

"It's a miracle," says EJ. Then he decides to come clean, "OK, no more lies. I was playing it up but I wasn't making it up. Your ex-husband shot me." Sami suggests EJ and Stefano set Lucas up.

EJ reminds her she was with him when he was shot. He offers to help Sami find Lucas. Sami resists but he gives his word not to turn Lucas in. "In exchange for what," asks Sami, "Sex?"

"No," says EJ, "But there is something I want from you. I would like you to forgive me."

"Is that all?"

"No," he says, "I would also like you to let our son form his own opinion about me."

Billie says where Crawford is concerned, things will get worse before they get better. Chelsea frets. Billie says things will get better when Ford gets home. She asks if the brat has anything else she wants to say. Chelsea claims not. Nick suggests getting something to eat. Chelsea agrees. Billie leaves.

Once Billie is gone, Chelsea suggests making breakfast. Nick gets a call from a student and goes to take it. Chelsea immediately calls Stephanie. She says Crawford is coming back with a warrant, "Get over he right away. We have to move the body."

Rolf comes flying down the stairs in a tizzy, "I have looked everywhere! He is gone!"

EJ says he will help Sami find Lucas regardless if she makes the deal. Sami doesn't know if she can trust him. EJ wants to be a good father but he thinks if Johnny sees him through Sami's eyes he doesn't have a chance. As he dials his phone he says they have to make sure they find Kate and Lucas before the police do, "Come on, work with me on this. Please."

Stephanie wonders where they will put the body. She hangs up. Max is unenthusiastic about the caper, but they head for the sorority house.

Ford must be getting a bit rank by now from decomposition. I wouldn't want to be Max at this point. How many days has it been in DOOL time?

Stephano's "guest" is certainly up, around, and functioning pretty well considering he was just brought to life a few hours ago!

I'm beginning to doubt that this is really a college sorority. I know college admission standards have been lowered over the years. But, how a bunch of people with the apparent IQ's of road kill like the I Felta Guy sorority sisters got into an institute of higher education is beyond me. Previous hi-jinxs aside, how do they think digging up the body NOW (leaving obvious signs of disturbed earth and probably a ton of forensic evidence behind) is going to make them look less guilty?? TLT

Wonderful Prevuze. Lucas's DWI, Alice's Christmas display and a CENSORED LINK were LOL good. And my favorite Prevuism today, the General and Terminator duke it out. There's an image I won't shake soon. HAHAHA

I have a question.
Patch made a reference to Steph liking Max since the 5th grade (which as we all know was about..what 2 yrs ago?

And someone pointed out it was during the time Steve was gone. Okay so maybe Kayla filled him in. BUT

I know the SORA'd Stephanie to around 21 so she could drink, but did they also SORAIR (soap opera rapid age in reverse) Max so he could be YOUNGER??

Just a few months ago the "adults" were a flipping that Max was too old to go out with Abby. But isn't Abby supposed to be at least a year older than Chelsea, who is the same age as Stephanie?

Now they get to call on good ol' Uncle Max to move the body. I have an idea, there are more than likely several empty caskets out there in the grave yard, pick one.

And this thing with Brady better NOT be one of those things they start interesting us in, and then cut off. I want to know what's up with that, and maybe even bring him back!!

OMG maybe THAT'S who the "zombie" is!! It would make sense that Stefano would want John's son to replace John doesn't it?
And making Brady come up missing would be an easy task.....

Ya know Deb, I was wondering if John had blue eyes like that. It'd make sense if it were Brady since Chloe seems scared of who she is running from.

Sorry for the dumb question, but is Brady Marlena's son or Isabella's son? I thought Isabella had a kid with John at one point.

About Ford - if they're going with the "I Know What U Did Last Summer" storyline, does that mean he is alive? or is this Chelsea's conscience (sp?).....?

Hhhmmmm....

Warning to Prevuze readers…do not…I repeat, do not open the censored link with ANYTHING in your mouth!!!! You to take the risk of having a donut go up your nose or major drenching of your key board.

Rolf interrupts, "Stefano, our guest was, uh... in the yard. Fortunately, I was able to usher him in before he left." Stefano rages about what would happen if he gets out. EJ is puzzled.

Is Rolf really Dr. Frank-N-Furter?

Why don't cha stay for the night
Or maybe a bite
I could show you my favourite obsession
I've been making a man
With blond hair and a tan
and he's good for relieving my tension

So come up to the lab
and see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with anticipation

But maybe the rain
Is really to blame
So I'll remove the cause but not the symptom".

Why does Daze remind me of Rocky Horror Picture Show without the music?

Deb, I thought Abby was a year younger than Chels.

It does seem kinda strange that Patch is all for his baby girl dating her uncle.

Angel, Brady is Isabella's son and Marlena's stepson. He used to really hate Marlena, but then they patched things up and are one cosy family--until he went missing.

Maybe Max could get a new career as a grave digger.

When Lexie returns she's going to be Chief of the hospital. Guess she gets her license back. I forget why she lost it in the first place. Anyone remember?

7:27 AM  
Anonymous Bulldog said...

Moposh - the hospital ignored the fact Lexie pronounced everyone in Salem dead at one time or another but they fired her when she lied to Carrie about medical tests saying she shouldn't have kids. Lexie was being blackmailed by Sami at the time to lie to Carrie so Sami could get Austin. (I think. There's probably more I've forgotten.)

I'm with Applecheeks - leaving the body where it is seems more logical than trying to move it now. It hasn't occured to the nimrods they still would face the security camera problem when they do. Maybe they can use the old body-in-the-rolled-up-carpet gag to carry him out of the house. HAHAHAHA

LOL over Alice's ornament display, the agony of Billie finding the missing child and the forbidden link. All great!

Thanks!

Did you see what they did to Ciara's hair at the Christmas Party? I'd love to see someone make a "Separated at Birth?" photo comparison with her and Cindy Lou Who of "The Grinch"!

Guys, Brady (or at least the actor who played him Kyle Lowder) has BLUE eyes!!!

John (or Drake) has brown.

I think we have a winner folks.

Anonymous MoonDancingNana said...

Is Lucas leaving the show? I hope not as I was hoping against hope his kids would have a semi-normal.....oops, forgot this was DOOL. Of course we'll have the SORA and the kids will be high schoolers before the year is out. Ok, they've got Brady??? You think?

1:12 PM  
Blogger Brendamouse said...

Isn't the actor that played Brady on the Bold and the Beautiful as Rick Forrester right now?

I have to say that it's a brilliant idea to disturb Ford's burial just before people are going to search the sorority house. (dripping with sarcasm)

That is an interesting idea about Brady being Rolf's creature. Do we really think that DOOL would think of that?

Great Prevuze today anyway.

I watched some of yesterday's show and boy did Marlena ever give to Chloe.

1:14 PM  
Anonymous moposh said...

Yes, Kyle Lowder (Brady) is on B&B. I watch the show as well. He hasn't had a big storyline lately. He was on Monday for Christmas. His hair was styled differently. Anyway, if Brady returns to the show, Days will have to recast. B&B isn't letting Kyle go.

John is supposed to be returning to the show.

Lucas and Bryan will be leaving the show for a couple months. He is supposed to return though.

I loved it when Marlena and Sami let Chloe have it. And rightly so! Her husband is missing and she's going around trying to get laid.

"Here's a giftbag. Sorry your husband is dead and your stepson is missing."

Anonymous Scolly said...

I disagree. I didn't know where Marlena got off demanding Chloe rush over there in an hour or else and then start yelling at her.

Since Marlena is just her (supposedly ex-husband's) stepmother I would've told her where to go and said "Come and find me if you want to see me so badly."

I like the theory someone suggested that Chloe is sworn to secrecy that Brady is off helping Squints solve the vendetta.

2:10 PM  
Blogger Michelle said...

I would be over-the-top happy if Kyle Lowder were coming back to DOOL. I just can't get into B&B.

I never liked Chloe and this SL isn't making me like her any better. Hopefully some of these theories about having to keep quiet are true, but it still doesn't explain her behavior.

5:23 PM  
Anonymous Klaus said...

I agree with Scolly. If not for John dying I would of told Marlena to screw off.

Chloe is being a bit of a prat, but demanding a virtual stranger to appear before you within a time limit is ridiculous. I'm surprised she didn't tell her to kneel and stare at the ground.

5:54 PM  
Blogger Angel said...

Ya know everyone - Marlena HAS been wearing her ovaries on the outside as Stewie from Family Guy would say. So her demanding outbursts from time to time don't surprise me. Perhaps it's "displaced anger" for our dear ol' DOC..... hehehehe

I think Chloe went over quickly cause maybe she "respects" Marlena.... and if Brady IS indeed working with John under cover, then it'd make sense for Chloe to be sworn to secrecy. I like that idea better than Stefano saying "HAHA, LOOK WHO ELSE I'VE BEEN ABLE TO BRAIN WASH"

For a second, I thought Benjy but he was wheelchair bound I think... and I didn't see his eyes to know if he had baby blues or not....

BY THE WAY - About the Sorority SL, didn't Cordy have a "state of the art" camera system in her room? Wouldn't it have been easier to tape the living room and prove Ford put something in Chelsea's drink and call it a day with the dumb sorority SL?

6:55 PM  
Anonymous moposh said...

Yes, Marlena is "only" Brady's stepmother. However, considering that Isabella died when Brady was a baby and Marlena married John when Brady was a toddler (and then he was sprinkled with fertilizer and aged 20 years overnight), Marlena has raised Brady and is the only mother he's known.

Chloe certainly could have told Marlena where to get off, but she didn't because she has a guilty conscience IMO.
