A World-Class Liar

Stefano sits by the fire and sips his brandy. He grimaces as he reads a threatening note, "The truth is coming for you, Stefano."

EJ makes over Johnny D. He says the three of them will make a beautiful family, "She's over making a clean break of it right now."

Sami and Lucas argue. Sami repeats the same old tired excuse for being with EJ; she wants to end the vendetta. She claims she hates EJ and is lying to him.

Lucas rages, "Vendetta – I don't want to hear that word ever again. You tell me you're lying to the guy, so how do I know you're not lying to me?"

Sami yells, "Why would I do that?"

Lucas snorts, "Because you've been known to lie in the past." A referee throws a flag and penalizes Lucas for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Sami swears she is protecting the family. Lucas swears she is destroying it, "You made it clear I will be second best. I won't accept that. You got your new marriage bed. You made it. Sleep in it."

Apparently, somewhere along the line, Lucas has grown a pair. The guys in the audience all chant, "GO LUCAS! DITCH THE B*TCH! DITCH THE B*TCH! DITCH THE B*TCH!"

Ford has Chelsea down on the couch as the sisters all run to her rescue. Stephanie yells, "FORD! STOP YOU SOB!" Ford stands up and Chelsea bolts. Ford turns and shoves Stephanie across the room. Then he chases Chelsea. He catches her and tackles her halfway up the stairs. They both fall. Ford gets on top of her and continues his attack. Apparently he doesn't mind an audience.

Stefano sighs as Rolf comes in. Rolf has apparently been busy downstairs playing mad-scientist. His surgical gown is covered with blood splotches. He looks like he didn't just operate on the patient, he dove in. Stefano wads up the note and tells Rolf he's getting daily threats, "The message is always the same."

"Maybe it's a crank," says Rolf.

Stefano says, "No, my old nemesis is alive. This time it's not going to end until one of us is dead."

Tony and Anna arrive at EJ's. Anna takes the log, uh, baby, from him. They tell EJ they are on their way to the airport for an extended trip, but wanted to meet a DiMera whose conscience was spotless. Apparently that's the only thing Johnny has that's spotless. Anna takes him into the next room to change his diaper. She takes Johnny, too.

Tony tells EJ he has some advice about protecting his son.

Lucas says, "Show yourself out when you get bored. We don't have a future any more. I want you out as long as you are EJ's wife."

The guys in the audience cheer wildly, "DUMP THE FRUMP! DUMP THE FRUMP! DUMP THE FRUMP!"

Ford and Chelsea struggle as the sisters stand like zombies and take in the show. Chelsea wiggles free and runs up several steps. Ford follows and trips. He falls and rolls. And rolls. And rolls. When he hits the bottom, he smashes his head on the Lauren/Willow/Jan memorial headcrusher. He tries to pick himself up but can't, so he starts crawling across the floor. He struggles to inch himself along. Slowly... slowly... slowly... suddenly a tectonic plate whizzes past him. Finally he collapses in a heap. Morgan leans over and checks him out, "He's not breathing!"

Tony says Johnny needs protection because he's a DiMera. EJ thinks Johnny's grandfather will protect him. Tony says he needs protection from his grandfather most of all. EJ insists Stefano would never hurt Johnny. "You hold onto that very misguided thought," says Tony, "and one day you will suffer for it as will your beautiful little innocent son."

EJ thinks Tony must have done something awful to Stefano to make him send Tony into exile. Tony says, "It boils done to this. Stefano gets what he wants. If you love your son, I'm begging you to get him as far away from Stefano as you possibly can."

Sami says Lucas can't throw her out, "My name is on that lease."

"There are no DiMeras on that lease," says Lucas. Wild cheers from the guys in the audience.

"You can't make me go," says Sami.

"If you won't go I will," says the man who has replaced Lucas Horton in this episode.

Sami begs. Lucas stands his ground. He claims he loves her but it won't last for long, "I will prove I can get you out of my life."

"That is not possible," says Sami.

"I have to make it possible," says Lucas.

The guys in the audience cheer, "BAG THE HAG! BAG THE HAG! BAG THE HAG!"

Uh oh. Sami tries another tactic. She moves in on him. Lucas resists, "Stop it and go!"

Sami turns to sulk out. Suddenly she wheels around and attacks. Lucas tries to resist, but...

The guys in the audience go silent. One of the guys turns to the others and says, "Don't worry. It's OK, He'll kick her to the curb later. This is one for the road!" All the guys chant, "ONE FOR THE ROAD! ONE FOR THE ROAD! ONE FOR THE ROAD!"

The girls try CPR. It doesn't work. One of them suggests mouth-to-mouth. Another says, "Eeeeuuuwwww! Be my guest."

Bambi panics, "Quick! What's the number for 911?"

As they watch, Stephanie comforts Chelsea. Slone insists it's too late to call 911. Morgan checks him out and looks up in despair, "Slone is right. He's dead."

The girls sit in hushed silence. Bambi gets on the intercom, "Cleanup in aisle seven."

Tony keeps up his warnings. EJ keeps up his resistance. He insists Stefano will never harm Johnny. Tony thinks EJ is naive.

Stefano thinks his nemesis has picked the worst time to crawl out from under a rock. He's worried about passing the family mantle to Elvis, "Elvis wants to be loved. It's a trap he's fallen into. Samantha will be the poison that saps his strength." He isn't sure how much longer the future of the family can be left to Elvis. He tells Rolf to continue as instructed and have no fear, "I should have gotten rid of my nemesis when I had the chance but I will not make the same mistake again."

Meanwhile Sami is busy trying to sap someone else's strength. She attacks Lucas and rips his shirt off. "Go to hell," snarls Lucas.

"Come with me," begs Sami. She gets him down on the couch. Lucas gets interested.

Chelsea rushes over to the lifeless Ford and starts smacking him. The sisters pull her off and decide she did that because of the drugs. Stephanie says if they call security they'll be arrested for murder.

Tony says Stefano loves himself more than he loves EJ and Johnny. If EJ doesn't give Stefano something he wants in the future, he'll cut them both down, "Look what happened to his children, Benjy and Renee." (Tony's words).

Tony says he doesn't regret rejecting Stefano's lifestyle of hatred and death. EJ has the opportunity of stopping the curse from going forward.

"You make the DiMera curse sound as if it's genetic," says EJ.

"Be a better man than Stefano can be," says Tony, "Do what you know is right for yourself, you future and your son."

Mission accomplished for Sami. She and Lucas sit on the couch holding each other. Sami says, "All EJ will ever get from me is lies." Lucas seems to have changed his outlook. Sami goes on, "I am doing this for us. And for our future. My marriage to EJ is temporary. You and I do have a future. I will never stop fighting for us. There is nothing for me without you." It's a good thing they're not spiders, or this would be the part where she has him for dinner. The guys in the audience are certain that is what's happening anyway.

The girls whine about their situation. They decide it was all an accident. Stephanie reminds them they drugged Ford, "That's premeditation. We called him over. We drugged him. He fell. That's murder!"

Morgan gets it. Slone argues for calling the police. Carmen joins the "it was murder" crowd.

Stephanie reminds them of that little thing called the death penalty. Morgan agrees and says Ford's father would crucify them in the courtroom.

Slone bawls, "He was still a human being."

"No he wasn't," screams Cordy.

Sami and Lucas dress. Lucas has completely changed his tune. He thinks Sami can convince EJ, "You're one hell of a liar when you need to be. But he's a world-class liar too, so it will be hard to fool him. He will find out sooner or later."

"He will believe what he needs to believe," says Sami.

"I don't know how long I can wait for that," says Lucas. The guys in the audience see a ray of hope. "LET GO DA HO! LET GO DA HO! LET GO DA HO!"

Sami decides to nip this in the bud. She moves in again, "Maybe I can convince you."

Round two is interrupted by a knock at the door. Lucas accurately predicts who it will be. EJ wheels himself in holding Johnny, "Am I interrupting something?"

Rolf says the surgery was a success. The patient will be at Stefano's disposal soon.

"Excellent," says Stefano, "He will be needed at his fighting strength. When he is ready I will make sure he takes care of this chronic nuisance..." Stefano burns the threatening note, "...once and for all."

Cordy says, "To be human, you need to be worthy of respect." The girls agree. They decide they aren't going to jail for the rat. All for one and one for all. Morgan reminds them they all added drugs to his drink, so they are all equally guilty. Everyone agrees not to call the police.

They wonder what to do with the body. If they try to carry him outside, the security cameras will see them. Stephanie suggests stashing the body in the basement. Everyone thinks that's a horrible idea. "OK," says Stephanie, "Any other ideas?"

Cary Grant has a suggestion, "How about over there in that window seat?"

Opera music fills the DiMera mansion as Tony and Anna come for a visit. Tony turns off the music. Stefano snarls, "I thought you were gone. I've wiped you from my mind. What can I do for you?"

Tony asks him to leave Johnny alone. Stefano tells him this is not his concern. Johnny is the heir to the DiMera name. Stefano will give him everything he needs. Tony says Stefano underestimates Elvis, "Bully him and he will fight you with every trick you have taught him. If you try to take that son away you will have a war on your hands."

Stefano scoffs, "How little you know."

Tony says, "If you want your grandson to inherit what is due him, then go back to Italy. Leave EJ to raise his own son."

Lucas asks, "What could you be interrupting?" EJ tells them he has decided Johnny needs to be over there with his sister.

"What's the catch," asks Lucas.

"There is no catch," says EJ, "The twins come first. It's that simple. And, I hate to say it, but Sami is better at looking after them than I am. If this brings us closer I am doing the right thing." He holds the baby out, "Sami?"

Sami takes the kid and EJ says goodnight.

The coven circles Ford. Morgan flashes back to the Halloween party and Ford attacking her. Cordy remembers Ford at the hotel room making threats. Stephanie remembers her night of hell. Ford doesn't remember much.

Sami tells Lucas she thinks EJ was sincere. At this point, Lucas will buy anything, but he thinks EJ will want something in return. Lucas takes Johnny. Sami asks, "Is there something I can do to help?"

Lucas says, "If I put Johnny to bed, it will wake Ali and she will be hungry. You can order pizza."

"So you want me to stay?"

Lucas caves and tells her she can do what she wants. The flushing sound you hear is the last vestige of Lucas' manliness headed for the septic tank.

EJ contemplates himself in the mirror and remembers what Tony told him about being a better man than Stefano.

Tony says he isn't leaving unless Stefano agrees with him. "Then stay," growls Stefano, "But this conversation is over." He walks off.

Anna tries to get Tony to give up. She says she hopes Elvis listened to him, "Stefano will only give up when he meets someone willing to be as ruthless as he is."

The girls all swear never to say a word to anyone. Slone and Cordy take the drugged Chelsea upstairs.

"Lets get this over with," says Morgan.

Carmen says, "Over with? It's just beginning!" They drag Ford off. We pan in to the Alpha Chi Theta symbol on the rug.

Back at the Horton Brady Roberts DiMera apartment and demasculinization center, there is a knock at the door. Lucas "P.W." Horton answers and sees two men standing there...

Love Prevuze! The guys chanting, the tetonic plate...!

Though I'm glad Ford is gone I just wish TPTB didn't make it the fault of the sorority girls. Can't women get revenge for once without having to get punished for it? argghhh! Of course, no one really gets punished for anything on DrOOL. What was I thinking?

The entire hour of Days was pre empted yesterday to show the funeral of Sean Taylor. I'm sorry his dead, but c'mon!!!! I never even heard of him until he was murdered. 3+ hours of funeral coverage and they didn't even have a scroll as to when Days would air. I called the station that night and they couldn't tell me if or when Days would air.

The CBS station at least stopped their funeral coverage at 1330 and said when Y&R would air.

I'm going to call the station later and complain. I really wanted to see EJ arrive home.

suddenly a tectonic plate whizzes past him LOLOL

Stephanie says if they call security they'll be arrested for murder. Lord help me….THESE are supposed to be college students?? A man attacks you. You try to escape. He jumps you on the stairs. He falls and dies. How in God’s green earth is that murder?

Ford doesn't remember much. OK. Prevuze wins. You got a full spew with that one.

The Good:
DOOL starts what could be a really promising storyline: Stephano and a long-time nemesis, Rolf stitching up some reconstituted, Frankensteinish soldier.

The Bad:
What the DOOL writers will probably actually DO with the SL.

The Ugly:
Tony and Anna going on an "extended" trip! Boooooo

Great pictures today too (Lucas and his dog time marriages; the Kate Roberts lip injection clinic)! Thanks!

This is the part where we are all supposed to wonder who Stefano has being "programmed" in the lab, and who his "enemy" is.

Okay so, the I-Felta-Thigh gals killed Ford. And of course they are going to cover it up. But who can they call to help? ------- Ah yes, their official mascot, Max!
Sorry folks, it seem like "real" men are in short supply in Salem these days. According to spoilers, Max is going to help the girls get rid of the body.

Which brings me to:

They're going to bury Ford in the basement. Like that won't give Cordy the chills. Knowing her rapist is in the basement. What stupids!!!!!! Days, when Hogan came he said he was going to give the men their penises back. How about giving the women their brains back!!!!

Chels' mother even is head of security and her dad is a cop.

Wow tptb really have gone overtime in making everyone hate Sami. I don't want her with Lucas and I don't want her with EJ. And just how stupid is Lucas? I hope both men dump her and we can all move on.

I am hoping since they are sending Tony and Anna away on some "extended trip" that they are brining Andre back and that is who Dr. Rolf is working on. Can we get on to DiMera v. DiMera already and can someone, anyone actually be arrested and jailed for shooting EJ?

I can't get the censored link to work. :( Can someone please tell me what it was?

You mean to tell me that not one of those girls have enough brains to know that what happened to Ford was self defence? How did they get into college? Come one! But I guess if they didn't hide the body, then the SL would end there, (Which I think it should, LOL) but know they can drag it on and on, til someone finds the body.

Hmmmm, I wonder if the blood matches John’s type. With the way he talks about his “favorite” son, Stefano deserves the father of the year award. It also appears it’s time to bid a fond adieu to Tony and Anna. I’m going to miss Tony’s sophistication and intelligence. Unlike the Brady men, he used multi-syllable words.

Sami is now cheating on her husband…like mother, like daughter. Man, it sure doesn’t take much to break Lucas’ resolve. The black thingy that Sami was wearing sure did the trick. Note to all the guys cheering for Lucas…if you’re looking for a little action, a black thingy under the Christmas tree will most assuredly put you and your significant other in the mood!

Lucas says, "Show yourself out when you get bored. We don't have a future any more. I want you out as long as you are EJ's wife."

-Ok, everyone stand up and give Lucas a round of applause....

Meanwhile Sami is busy trying to sap someone else's strength. She attacks Lucas and rips his shirt off. "Go to hell," snarls Lucas.
"Come with me," begs Sami. She gets him down on the couch. Lucas gets interested.

How long does Sami actually think she can continue to live this double life????
And she's getting 'intimate' with Lucas? Hello....Can you say stitches?????? Ouchhhh!

-Hssss, boooooo, the audience is in disbelief. Lucas' manlihood 'drops' like a sack of potatoe's.....

We all had such HIGH HOPES for Lusas' new-found manlihood.

The 'girls' are going to bury Ford's body in the basement? Ohhhhh geee, that's not suspicious! If I was Cordy, I'd be really p*ssed off. Just think, she and Morgan had recently gone to the Dean of the college to complain about Ford's action. And because the Dean is buddy-buddy with Ford's dad the case was dropped. NOW Ford's going to be missing... I wonder where the first place they'll look will be... And who will be the first one they suspect???? MMmmmmm, the girl that accused him of rape???

And now Max is gonna get involved? How stupid! Yeah, he'll be happy! First he was drug into the whole Jeremy/Fly High sheme (by Chelsea) and now he's gonna be an accomplis to burying the body???? I bet he'll be happy! (dumb...)

GREAT JOB Prevuze, (as usual)!

I know, here I go injecting logic into DOOL again, but I just want to make a comment about the Ford murder/self-defense question. There was no "malice aforethought" -- the girls didn't ever at any point INTEND to kill him -- therefore there can be no murder charge. HOWEVER, since they DID drug him, and it is possible that the fact that he was drugged contributed to his fall down the stairs, the girls could very well be guilty of involuntary manslaughter, where the death of a person is caused by recklessness or negligence, but the intent to kill or cause serious bodily harm is absent.

OK, I'm done now. And besides, this is DOOL, so no one is going to be punished for this anyhow, no matter what they do or don't get charged with.

I wondered if Rolf was patching up Squints or a new character played by Drake.

I also thought maybe Daze was going to pull an As The World Turns (circa 1960) and have a character actually die from falling UP the stairs. Am I dating myself or what? HAHAHA

Well, then, instead of copying ATWT maybe they can do a Weekend at Bernies type of thing.

Great Prevuze, I LOL and got looks from my coworkers when I got to the Lauren/Willow/Jan memorial headcrusher and cheering from the guy crowd. Excellent Prevuze!

Great job with the Prevuze today.

P.S. - Why is it that Lucas got one visit from Belle and now all of a sudden he's inherited her multiple personalities?

The Felta Thigh really screwed up their version of Murder on the Orient Express didn't they? The whole "let's get Ford cause the cops can't do a thing" was stupid from the beginning. And as to the date rape drug,isn't part of the problem with detecting its use is that it breaks down into different components after the effects wear off and are not identifiable?
So, the girls could just leave Ford's stinking corpse on the steps to be found by someone else and everybody would think that it was an accident.Or am I missing something?

Sami, Lucas, EJ, unbelievable and unbearable.

Wonder who Rolfenstein is working on in the basement? Geez, who is Stefano's nemesis?

I couldn't access the censored link either.

I love the line about the security cameras...hey, dumb sorority girls - wouldn't those same security cameras have caught Ford coming into the sorority?

Which further reminds me of Bart sitting on the park bench, talking to Rolf's dead body.

Dear Anonymous:

I think you’re on to something. After Dr. Rolf renegotiated John’s DOOL contract, Squints has become the mad doctor’s science project. Since Marlena certainly has spare letters from putting together scrap books for both her daughters’ weddings, what better way to use them up than by sending threatening letter’s to Stefano. The real question is what kind of monster is Rolf creating? Is it an evil monster? I bet this monster won’t be singing and dancing to “Puttin’ on the Ritz”. I’m thinking we are going to have to endure Marlena taming the savage beast. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Maybe the "patient" is the infamous Tek, who seemed to fall off the face of the earth after the car crash he was in with Lexie. Remember Lexie turned up in the DiMera tunnel after having been imprisoned there by Stefano -- but nobody ever found out what happened to Tek ...

Come on, all, who is Stefano's nemesis is John. There was a show where John and Stefano had a meeting and Stefano said " John you have always been my best adversary. " Maybe he said greatest, getting old, memory isn't what it used to be. And the soldier is probably Andre.

EJ makes me love him more every day. Lucas only has one facial expression - brow furrowed, eyes narrowed...he uses it both for anger and arousal, which is pretty much the two extremes he bounces between.

The sorority sl is probably the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a long time. Well, since Touch the Sky at least.

Um, I think Slone is spelled Sloane when it is a girl.

Actually Leslie, I believe it was Stephanie's brilliant idea to garner Max. Chelsea was against it, then she seemed to slip into apathy.

I agree with Michelle, I wish they let Ford hit his head on a rock while doing something sketchy on a beach/dock/pier (Willow) or something stupid.

As much as I've been following Days and Ejami. I don't think I have the stamina to endure another six months of Samantha in Denial mode. I'm on the borderline in the conclusion that "Both" EJ and Lucas are better off. Or could Samantha be so stupid to think that EJ will allow her to continue to "Shack Up" with Lucas? Speaking of "Little Big Man"- that's really balsey of Lucas attacking a Paraplegic, lol. What a Tool. Prevuze is right. Lucas needs his "Guy Card" revoked.

I'm halfway hopping Stefano unleashes his wraith on the "Biggest Liar" in Salem. Samantha is starting to get on my last nerve. I'm headed over to Genoa City to see a "Real" romance. Cane and Lily looks interesting....
