May You Rot In Hell

Tony comes into the pub, sees Anna and goes over to her table. Anna ain' interested. She tells him she's preparing for a job interview. She also thinks Tony doesn't take her seriously.

Sami and EJ are in the safe house. With nothing else to do, they actually pay some attention to the babies. Sami gets a call from the DA's office. She hangs up and announces, "They were just notifying me of Lucas' trial date and that they expect me to testify. It saves money if they phone in their subpoenas."

Stefano vegetates as Lexie begs him to talk. Roman interrupts the one-way conversation. Lexie says the tests show no indication of a stroke. Roman chews on that as Lexie says she thinks Stefano is trying to communicate with her. Roman wants her to take a break. Lexie wants to help Stefano if she can. Roman ushers her out as Stefano's mind begs her not to go.

Outside, Patch joins them. He says he and Kayla have brought Stephanie in for counseling. He asks Roman if he is working on the Decker case.

Roman is shocked, "You know I can't tell you that. I can blab everything in the world about my other cases and let you and other untrained civilians tag along on cases, but I can't tell you if I'm working on a case."

Patch understands. Once they have that straight, Roman launches into talking about the case. He gives Patch everything but the password to the SPD computer system, "Now that Crawford knows where the body is, he may think he has gotten justice." Patch thinks there was justice when Ford died.

Shawn tells the McGoon brothers, "We're looking for Crystal."

Aloysius says, "Everyone's looking for Crystal tonight."

Belle Says, "She has our daughter and we're not leaving here without her."

Bo and Hope search upstairs. They use their handy-dandy skeleton key kits to get into the rooms up there.

John hides his knife. Marlena looks at the old woman and gasps, "It's impossible. I didn't think Betty Crocker was real."

Roman doesn't want to talk about the Decker case, so Patch asks about Stefano. Roman doesn't see how anyone could have done anything to him. Patch gets a call. It's Adrienne. She asks him to meet her at the Brady pub. The semi-masked man is on his way.

Meanwhile, Roman tells Lexie not to beat herself up over Stefano. Lexie beats herself up. Stefano's mind begs for help.

EJ knows Sami is upset about the possibility of Lucas going to prison. Sami says she hates this situation and what it is doing to her kids, who are too young to give a flying leap... Not to mention what it's doing to the audience.. Now she is stuck with EJ in the safe house. EJ knows he has disappointed her but gives her his word, "I am not going to leave you."

Shamus tells the fearsome foursome they don't know where Crystal is.

Bo and Hope continue to sneak around.

Marlena looks at the old woman and gasps, "You're supposed to be dead."

The old woman smiles, "Poor girl. Havn't ye learned, no one ever dies on this show."

Stefano vegetates. Lexie asks Roman to get in touch with EJ and ask him to meet her there. Roman agrees and leaves.

Tony wonders what happened. Anna gives a concise recap of recent events, "We came back to Salem, you bought a company and I dumped you."

Tony can't understand why Anna is so upset about him buying a company, "This is business, not shopping."

Anna accuses him of patronizing her. "I wasn't patronizing you," says Tony, "I was insulting you." He digs himself into a deeper hole by claiming she wasn't the talent or brains behind his former operation, "I ran that cocoanut stand on the island without any help at all." Anna thinks he just called her stupid. Saved by the bell... Lexie interrupts with a call and asks Tony to come to the hospital.

EJ gets a call and Roman tells him to come to the hospital. True to form for people in Salem, EJ doesn't ask what it's about; he just leaps for the door.

Patch meets Adrienne. Big hug. She announces Justin, the boys and her are leaving Salem.

Bo, Hope and Crystal sneak around the bed and breakfast. Somehow, they manage not to bump into each other.

The McGoon brothers say others have been there looking around. Shawn wants to know who it was. He threatens to call the cops but Crystal makes an appearance and says that won't be necessary. Belle goes off the scale and demands to know where her daughter is.

The old woman says she will answer everyone's questions and all mysteries will be resolved.

Anna calls and schedules an interview.

Patch wonders why Adrienne is leaving. She says she loves her job, but loves Justin more, "He just got a job offer in Dubai. This is goodbye."

A nurse hands Lexie more reports. Lexie takes three-tenths of a second to review them and announces that they are results for someone other than Stefano who may be very sick. Roman asks if he can help. Lexie hesitates, "Yes, there might be a way you can."

The fearsome foursome demands to see Claire.

John flashes his knife as the mystery woman assures them she is alive even though there are some who wish she weren't. Bo and Hope walk into the room. Bo looks the old woman over, "Who's this?"

Hope says, "It can't be."

Marlena says, "That was my reaction, too."

"I am," says the woman.

"Not possible," says Bo, "I didn't think Mrs. Butterworth was real."

Anna makes the appointment.

Adrienne says she will ask Max to run the Cheatin' Heart until she figures out what to do with it, "I figure once Max is done with it, the place will be bankrupt and there won't be much work left."

Patch whines, "I'm going to miss you. I know I've been a pain in the butt..."

"You're a pin in the butt," says Adrienne, "But you're my pain in the butt." Adrienne says she will write. Hugs, tears, goodbyes. Adrienne leaves. At the door, she turns for one last tearful look, throws him a kiss and leaves. Patch screams, "Shane! Shane! Come back!"

Lexie says things aren't good but, as always, they need more tests. Tony and EJ walk in. Lexie fills them in. She's asking their help in deciding what to do with Stefano.

Crystal says she can't take them to Claire.

Bo and Hope have lots of questions for Marlena, like what are they doing there and why did she break John out of the hospital. "Roman's going to have a problem with this," says Bo.

Marlena claims John was in protective custody so it was OK for her to break every rule in the book and spring him. John butts in, "Stefano wanted me to find this woman."

Hope says she thinks the woman has the answers to their questions. The old woman gets a bit cranky, "Well, I was about t'answer them when y'interrupted me."

Bo gets a bit cranky himself, "Well no one is stopping you now."

Caroline comes over to Anna's table. Anna rants about Tony. She thinks he doesn't appreciate her. She tells Caroline she followed up on the prospective job, "He is going to regret underestimating me."

"It sounds like he's going to regret ever knowing you," says Caroline.

Tony, EJ and Lexie stand at Stefano's bedside and discuss his condition. "I think something mysterious happened to him," says Lexie.

"Yes," says Tony, "We're aware of the fact that all of medicine is a mystery to you. What did you find when you checked for brain activity?"

"I knew there was something I had forgotten to do," says Lexie, "I don't know if I should. Maybe this is fate. This way he can't hurt anyone."

Tony thinks it's ironic. The fate of the great manipulator lies in the hands of the people he manipulated the most. Stefano's brain screams, "I loved you and now you must repay that love."

Lexie says they need to decide how they really feel about Stefano and then they will know what to do, "It's a little-known codicil to the Hippocratic oath... I promise that I will first, do no harm, unless I don't like the person and then I can let him rot."

Crystal says she can't hand over Claire because she can't be sure Claire will be safe with Shawn and Belle. Crystal catches on fast. Shawn and Belle beg Crystal to reconsider and decide they will just go search the place. Aloysius and Shamus step in but Crystal calls them off, "Upstairs." Shawn, Belle, Phillip and Chloe practically kill each other to see who can rush up the stairs first.

The old woman says Stefano and she have been playing cat and mouse ever since he found out she's alive. She has money and kept track of what Stefano is doing. Her base was the dilapidated storefront in Salem. She may have money, but apparently not enough to get a better place. She tells them she was behind the Claire-napping. Just as she says this, the fearsome foursome rushes in and Belle demands to know where her daughter is.

Patch meets Roman at the hospital. He tells Roman about Adrienne's plans, "She told me Justin got a job with the Doobie Brothers. I didn't even know he could sing." Roman fills him in on Stefano, and then asks to talk to Kayla. He says Lexie got test results on another patient and it's something he and Kayla need to know.

Tony stands at Stefano's bedside and accuses Stefano of never loving him. Stefano's brain argues. Tony says he feels nothing as he looks at Stefano in this condition.

Tony moves away and it's EJ's turn to bash Stefano. Stefano's brain knows EJ will not turn his back on him. EJ says when he thinks about the evil Stefano has done he knows he turned what he had with Samantha into something cold and heartless. He then comes up with the rationalization of the century, "Because of you, I forced myself on her and have to live with that for all the Days Of Our Lives. All so you can have an heir. Well, where are your heirs now?"

EJ moves away so Lexie can come up and take her shot, "You nearly cost me my marriage. Thank goodness I had Tek to run to. You held me captive for months. I was luckier than my brothers. I didn't have to fight so hard to escape your influence."

Stefano's mind rages as Lexie says she took an oath and thinks she might be able to find a way to help him, "You must, Alexandra!"

Lexie goes over with the boys and asks what they should do, "Should we help, or leave him like this where he can't harm anyone?"

Belle demands to know where Claire is. The old woman says she's safe. Chloe wonders if she knows anything about Brady. Phillip tells her to concentrate on Claire. They wonder if she can prove who she is.

The woman says she always outsmarted Stefano and his soldiers.

Marlena pipes up, "If this woman is who we think she is, she would never hurt a Brady child, would you?"

"Not just a child," says the woman, "I'd let the whole damn family suffer for a half century while I hid out."

Patch tells Roman he and Kayla will help. He'll fill Kayla in and catch the next flight to Ireland.

Stefano's mind rages. He thinks Rolf might know what to do. On the other side of the room, Lexie, Tony and EJ debate what to do. Lexie thinks the world will be better of without Stefano. EJ thinks maybe without him he would know what unconditional love is. Tony walks over and kisses Stefano's forehead, "May you rot in hell."

Stefano's mind screams, "YOU SOB!"

So, they all agree; Stefano is to vegetate forever. They leave the room. Stefano's mind yells, "NO! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

The woman insists she would never hurt a Brady. "Then you really are her," says Marlena.

"Yes," says the woman, "I'm Colleen Brady."

Not a good plan. Who is going to deal with the adult diapers? Lexie, honey, trust me, the boys are going to hand over that job to you. Weddings, funerals, and vegetation watches…it just goes to show you that even the DiMera family can get ugly.

"Because of you, I forced myself on her and have to live with that for all the Days Of Our Lives.”

Ah ha!! You knew this was coming. Ejamis every where are breaking out the confetti. Lumis are pumping out on-line petitions. Please just spare us the debate.

Doctors without ethics, police without scruples, and Tony without a clue…just another typical day in Salem. Great Prevuze and all the pictures are funny, funny, funny!!!

Gee, I didn't think Mrs. Santa Claus was alive! But she must be -we all got a great Prevuze this morning.

My closest spit-take was to an (apparently) actual line of dialogue: "I think something mysterious happened to him," says Lexie. Ya THINK!? LOLOL

Loved Pard feigning reluctance and then spilling all to Patch. LOL at the Hippocratic codicil. And just had to shake my head at the idea that the Salem judicial system can just phone in their supeonas. Now why didn't our Muni Court think of that?

One question for Prevuze. You're a pin in my butt. Is this statement to Patch by Adrienne a typo? I mean, a "pin in the butt" WOULD be a pain in the butt, so it is appropriate. LOLOL

Interesting how Marlena, the only one who's NOT related to her, figures out who Colleen is by just looking at her.

Another thing I wonder, is if Sami and EJ are going to high tail it to Ireland.
I can't see DOOL going through all that Ejami/Santeen look-a-like crap and then not have them at least get to meet the old gal before she shuffles off this mortal coil.

But I have been disappointed before, and I imagine I will again.

Well, it didn't take long for Dr. Lexi Carver - Chief of Staff to jump back on that "questionable ethics" train and go for a ride did it?
She knows Stefano didn't have a stroke, and now she's just going to let him stay all vegged out and not help him. They say doctors get a God complex but this is ridiculous!

Anonymous --
Shawn and Belle are not related because Shawn is not a Brady by blood (Bo is Victor's son, not OMB's). And I'm not a geneologist, but I think Sami and EJ are only distantly related -- second cousins once or twice removed, I believe. I think that's legal in all 50 states.

It just amazes me how the writers don't take into consideration for the viewers at all, Bo and Hopes baby, they just take off to Ireland, and she rejoins the "force" without a thought. Just so stupid.

I don't understand why Brady,and Claire would be in danger??? Can someone explain that to me?

It will be interesting to see "Colleen's" face since she and Sami are suppose to look so much alike. I know age will make some difference, but they have to make some sort of resemblance, you would think.

No, neither couple shares the same genes. Since Deb is the resident Daze genealogist, I’m sure she can offer a better explanation than I can.

Samantha has no DiMera blood and Ej has no Brady blood.

They're not related biologically or thru marriage.

Now, Belle and Shawn are married thru marriage but not biologically.

Steph and Max are related thru adoption but not biologically.

Does any of th is make sense?

supposedly stefano needed brady stem cells. WHY? i have no idea. but there is a reason stefano wanted ej to impregnant sami or carrie or belle (i'm assuming he just chose sami, cuz he has good taste)

Stefano needed stem cells from EJ's kid, not necessarily a Brady other than to torment them.

Stefano needed stem cells for himself that's why he wanted a Dimera heir. Brady and Claire both have Dimera DNA because John is realted to them. I think he wanted the Brady connection out of spite. I dunno the whole storyline is getting rather convoluted. I'm sure we'll have more "huh?" moments in tomorrow's explanation of all of this.

OK, since I got off of decaf I'm even worse at remembering and/or figuring these things out than before.

First, did I miss something? "Since Crawford knows where the body is, he may think he has gotten justice" says Pard. When did he find out? Last I remember Max was taking that to his own grave "to protect the girls".

Next, why is Patch going to Ireland - just to tell Bo he's sick? If that's it hasn't he ever heard of a phone?

I completely lost it with Justin getting a job with the Doobie Brothers and all of the pictures and Prevuisms were great today. Thanks!

Okay here's how the Colleen is John's father changes all the relationships:

Stefano and John are half brothers.

John, Roman, Kimberly, Kayla, Max and Frankie are first cousins

Belle, Sami and Eric are half siblings and second cousins.

Stefano is Belle and Brady’s Uncle and Claire’s Great-Uncle

Roman, Kayla, Kimberly and Belle are second cousins

OMB is Belle’s Great-Uncle

Belle and EJ are first cousins

Belle and Johnny are second cousins

John is EJ’s Uncle and Johnny’s Great-Uncle

John is Lexie’s Uncle (of course my marriage making him Abe’s Uncle LOL!)

Lexie, Belle and Brady are first cousins

Theo and Claire are second cousins.

Belle is Johnny’s Aunt and second cousin.

Brady is Johnny’s Uncle and second cousin.

Belle and Sami are half sisters and second cousins

John is Tony’s Uncle

Tony and Belle are first cousins

Tony and Claire second cousins.

Since Stefano adopted Kristen, if John had married her he would have been marrying his niece.

John is Andre’s Uncle

Belle, Brady and Andre are second cousins

Belle, Brady, Kristen, and Peter are first cousins

I know everyone has been trying to connect Belle and Shawn, but they aren’t related by birth, just by the weird relationship that Bo has with OMB.

If Bo was OMB’s natural son, that of course would make Belle and Shawn second cousins. Not illegal, but still strange.

EJ and Sami are NOT related, and only WOULD HAVE BEEN IF Colleen and Santo had gotten married and then only cousins by marriage.

To pnl uh4: EJ and Belle are blood relations so they couldn't have had a kid together.

And Anonymous: Brady, Belle AND Claire all are Dimeras

Lexie's hitting the ball out of the park with her ethics (not to mention legal) violations today. First, see Deb, above. And it sure doesn't sound like Bo had authorized her to release his test results to Roman. Can you say HIPAA?

Just when I thought the writing was starting to get better...

I look at this whole Colleen is alive scenario differently. Just because she faked her death and is still alive doesn't mean she was with Santo.

I think he was as clueless as the rest of the Dimera's and John Black is the product of a totally different relationship years later.

Perhaps with a man named Alamain!

Yowza! All that geneology stuff is making my head spin. After having seen the show today I feel compelled to make the following comments.

1. The "bed & breakfast" that Colleen is in sounds more like a major hotel! All kinds of people are roaming around but not bumping into each other. Seeing the place I'm even more convinced the DOOL writing staff have never been to a real B&B. For one thing, they have numbers on the doors like a hotel. A B&B usually has a very limited number of bedrooms and if they have names at all they are things like the "Topiary" and the "Western Room" or something like that. The only meal you get is breakfast and it ISN'T delivered to your room. E.g., there wouldn't be any room service trays sitting out in the hallway. But, maybe European B&B’s are different??

2. John tells Doc to search him if she doesn't believe he doesn't have a weapon. She does the old, police pat-down which almost turns into her throwing him down and "doing it" right on the spot. I thought she was going to have an orgasim just running her hands over his back and shoulders. Prevuze must not have been looking at the screen just then or there surely would have been a Prevuism about it. HAHAHAHAHA

3. Finally, here is another instance of DOOL bending time & space. I was wondering how quiet UB's jet must be if Hope can't hear the engine noise over the phone. Then I realized they were actually on the ground. If they didn't know where Ho & Dope were, how did they know where to land? And, finally, unless the plane JUST HAPPENED to land within about 10 miles of New Ross, there is no way the 4 intrepid travelers could get to the town/B&B within a few minutes. First of all - it's the middle of the night. Where would they get a car? Secondly, and take it from a person who has now travelled around by car/bus in Ireland, you DO NOT get ANYWHERE quickly there. The roads are mostly two-laned, narrow, and wind all over the place.

I feel much better now that I've gotten that rant off my chest. LOL

Hmmmm. Perhaps I should explain the term "UB" I just used in the post above.

When Phil came back from the war he wore his uniform CONSTANTLY. I got into the habit of referring to him by the shorthand name of "UB" (Uniform Boy).

First, (and foremost,) "ALL HAIL TO DEB!!!!" Your knowledge of the whole Brady/Dimera clan is soooo impressive! If they ever make a "Days of our Lives Trivial Pursuit I want to be on your team!!!!!

Second, I can now see where the 'ghost' writers have taken over the show. All of a sudden storylines are ending - but there not making total sense. When are Sweeps? Let's hope this whole thing gets cleared up before Colleen dies! Otherwise this could go on for eternity!

Note to Writers:
Hey writers, since we see you are having a hard time with these storylines, you are floundering for ways to make all of this connect and make sense... I for say that you should hire Deb to write... She definately knows much more about the show and it's characters. You should at least hire her as a consultant!!! (LOL!) Then we could actually get some closure to these dead-end storylines!!!!
It's all so unbelieveable!!!!

Thanks Prevuze for the funny stuff!

Max is Stephanie's Uncle by adoption, and third cousin, again, by adoption.

Although the Uncle thing would make it illegal enough, since OMB's name is on his birth certificate as being his father, as it is for being Bo's father.

Thus making Shawn and Belle third cousins by adoption.

See if I get into the whole who married whom and when and who adopted who and when, we'd be here all day and be more confused than we ever thought about being.
For instance Julie married Doug, her step father, making her, her own step-mother, and Hope's step mother/half sister

And please please don't make me do the Hortons, they make the Brady's look easy.

Just an FYI...According to laws vary from state to state regarding cousin marriages. For example, 1st cousins can marry in CA but in IL only 1st cousins OVER 50 can marry (whatever!)

In some cultures, cousin marriages are encouraged, and in others it is considered incest. Though I don't believe the bible says anything about whether cousin marriages are right or wrong there are instances of cousin marriages depicted within the bible. So, I guess DOOL can pretty much come from the most liberal of thoughts on this topic and not be so incestuous as previously thought.
