Hell's Grannies

The doomed plane flies somewhere in the skies over the chilly North Atlantic. Inside the cockpit, the frantic crew works to get a response from the controls. The pilot flips several switches but nothing works. Suddenly he gasps, "Thank God! At least I can still play World of Warcraft on my iPhone."

John stares at the controls and gives an exasperated sigh, "Any chance you're at a level where you can fly a crippled plane?"

Patch begs John not to dump the fuel, but John orders the pilot to do it. The pilot flips the switch, "Nothing."

John turns to Patch, "Well, Deadeye, go give people the news we'll be up here a while and it will get a lot colder."

Patch goes into the cabin and gives the grim announcement. He says they're doing everything they can to bring us in safely. "Can we descend," asks Bo.

"Sure," says Patch, "Just like a rock."

John comes out of the cockpit. Marlena gasps, "John, tell us the truth. Can we make it?"

"Yes," says John, "If the bottom of the ocean is your destination."

Sami comes back into the safe house. EJ tells her Tony and Anna were there. Sami is distant. EJ asks about Lucas. Sami doesn't want to talk about it. EJ encourages her to tell him what happened. Sami tells about being in the visiting room with Lucas, but only gives the perfunctory details about the visit. Now she won't see him for who knows how many years. EJ says he understands. Sami thinks he is probably joyful about this. Seeing her upset makes EJ unhappy. Sami says Lucas knows he has to pay the price for what he did, but that doesn't make it any easier for him. EJ asks if she still loves Lucas. "Yes."

Stephanie thanks Max for the best day she's had in a long time. He says he specializes in providing best days for beautiful women. Then moves on. They both claim to miss their parents and know they will be home soon, safe and sound.

Belle takes Claire for cookies. And tosses hers while she is at it.

John gives the grim details of the unresponsive instrumentation. "Are we gonna crash," asks Marlena?

"Not on my watch," says John, "Unfortunately I'm not on watch."

Sami broods. She doesn't know how long she can take being there. EJ thinks the place isn't so bad. Sami says it's just that she misses her family. EJ suggests board games or maybe gin rummy. Sami insists she wins every time at gin rummy. EJ says he wins every time and we are just about to have a gin rummy smackdown when Abe knocks. He comes in. Sami runs up and hugs him. Abe says, "You're sprung, which is more than I can say for Lucas. The coast is clear."

Sami asks, "So we don't have to worry about Stefano any more?"

Abe says, "You always have to worry about Stefano." He tells them they can leave. Sami thanks him. EJ isn't quite as enthusiastic. Abe says he is sorry about Lucas and leaves.

EJ suggests packing. Sami agrees. Sami stammers around as they pack.

Stephanie giggles and says, "You're suck a dork!" Max claims all he was trying to do was save her from being run over by a motorcycle gang in the supermarket.

"Motorcycle gang," she asks, "It was an old woman in an electric wheelchair. She might be a member of Hell's Grannies. They say if someone saves your life, you owe them, so I guess I owe you my allegiance."

"I don't want you to be my slave," says Max, "Just my... ... ... ... the end of time approaches... ... friend." Stephanie says he has already proven his friendship and is more than a friend.

"What am I," asks Max. Stephanie dives in. Max backs off. He's not sure that's such a good idea. He just wants to make sure she's all right first.

Patch asks John what he's going to do. John says he has absolutely no idea. He says they tried to descend, but the controls were unresponsive. So there they are flying at a constant altitude and they have no idea how or why it happened. "But I'm optimistic," says John. Patch wants to know how he can be optimistic when they're all about to join the folks on the Titanic. "Maybe that's the way I was programmed," says John, "Don't worry, I'll think of something." He tells them he can keep the plane up for 2½ hours. How long they can keep from freezing is another question. Chloe hyperventilates, "We'd better get double frequent flier miles for this trip! " The crowd huddles.

EJ and Sami stand together packing things. Inadvertently... or not... their hands touch. We have an uncomfortable moment and then Sami bolts like a scared jackrabbit. "Was it something I said," asks EJ, "Or touched? Did I touch a nerve?" Sami says she just wants to get out. She feels claustrophobic. EJ says he's happy to be going home but has enjoyed this arrangement. Sami says he can visit Johnny whenever he wants, within reason, as long as he calls first. EJ asks to spend time with Allie, too.

John doesn't know how long the air will last. Bo suggests turning off the engines so they can descend. Patch says they already tried that. John goes back inside. Marlena barks orders.

Back in the cockpit John finds both the pilot and co-pilot unconscious, "This is a hell of a time for a siesta, gentlemen."

Sami and EJ go around the bend discussing Allie. Sami finally agrees Allie likes EJ and says he can spend time with her. EJ apologizes for trying to hug her earlier. Sami says it's no big deal. If that's the case, he wonders what's bothering her. Sami says it's not that, but she does have something she wants to tell him.

Stephanie gets off the phone and asks why Max doesn't want to kiss her. Max thinks it's too soon. He suggests snuggling. She thanks him. Max says, "You know I'm here for you but I think you'll be more comfortable when your parents get home."

Patch and Kayla huddle, shiver and think about Stephanie. Patch assures her they will walk away from this. John comes back out, leans down and whispers in Marlena's ear, "Hey Blondie, can I see you for a second." They go up front.

Marlena gasps ask she discovers the unconscious pilots. She examines them, "They are alive, but have a slow pulse." Marlena gets up and says, "I'll be right back." John takes a seat and asks the plane to do something different for a change, like maybe respond. No luck.

Marlena comes back with her bag. She looks at the water they drank and finds residue, "It looks like they were drugged. You will have to land the plane. I think they have ingested some narcotic."

"Is there any left," asks John, "I'm gonna get my butt on the ground in one piece. With any luck, the rest of me will be attached to it."

Sami tells EJ the group found Colleen. She tells him Marlena thinks Colleen and Santo were reunited in death. EJ asks if Sami believes that. She hesitates and then drops her bag. EJ sees the DVD and asks about it. Sami tells him it's a DVD Lucas made for Allie.

Sami pops it in so Allie can watch.

Lucas sits in a leather chair by a roaring fire in the comfortable gentlemen's club at the prison, "Hey, Allie, it's daddy. I miss you so much. It's hard to be away from you but I won't be away for all the Days Of Our Lives. I wish I were there to take care of you. I'll miss your first steps and smile. The idea of not watching you grow up... I love you and your mother very much and always will."

Allie looks at the TV, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." She finds the DVD jewel case a lot more interesting than the windbag on the screen.

"We love your daddy so much," says Sami.

Marlena says, "I gave them Naloxone, but can't revive them."

"What's Naloxone," asks John.

"I don't have a clue," says Marlena, "Whadya think I know something about medicine? At least they are stable. They won't be able to fly the plane, but we're OK; we have you."

"I talk a good game, but I have no idea what my next step is," says John.

"You've never let me down," says Marlena.

"I'm gonna let you down," says John, "About 35,000 feet in a matter of seconds. Besides, you're talking about that other guy again."

Marlena says she is impressed with him. John won't be impressed until his feet are on solid ground, "We're still flying, and as long as we..." Suddenly John stops and starts making hand gestures."

"What are you doing," asks Marlena.

"Math," says John, "I have to count on my fingers." John's computer brain kicks in, "Two hours and ten minutes left, we may just have enough oxygen left and I've figured out a way to get it down without going in face first."

"How," asks an excited Marlena.

"I'll back it in," says John.

Max tries to toss popcorn into Stephanie's mouth. Slap and tickle ensues. He gets her down on the bed and then backs off. "You reacted," says Max.

"I didn't mean to," says Stephanie. Max doesn't want to force things with her. Stephanie says, "If you'd let me, right now I'd kiss you so hard on the lips... I like you."

"Are you buttering me up so I will pick up the popcorn," asks Max.

"No," says Stephanie, "Just sit there like the man and I will get it." They pick it up together and meet facing each other on all fours. "When can we start kissing again," asks Stephanie.

"I really hope soon," says Max.

Bo goes to check on OMB. He asks Patch, "How's he doing."

OMB opens his eyes and snorts, "Why don't you ask me? I'm just resting my eyes." Bo decides he's doing fine.

Claire is asleep. Chloe shivers from the cold and nerves. Marlena comes out and announces John has figured a way to land the plane. She drops the bomb bout the pilots being drugged, "We think the same people who drugged them also sabotaged the plane. This was no accident."

EJ comes out as Sami plays with Allie. He says his distaste for Lucas is no secret and neither is Lucas' dislike for him. He thinks Sami is a toughie. She's down today but she'll be back on her feet tomorrow. He thinks he at least partially understands her. He knows she may not want to hear this, but his feelings for her have grown in the time they have spent together. Sami appreciates what a gentleman he has been. "I will always be a gentleman for you," says EJ, "Whenever I'm not raping you."

The crew removes boxes from the safe house. EJ says he is a little disappointed to be leaving there. It's the first time he's experienced being part of a real family. Sami tells him he will have a family someday.

Chloe panics. Marlena says John is busy trying to find out how to land the plane safely. Phillip offers to lend a hand. Marlena says if John needs him he will ask. She says they are leaking air. Eventually, the plane will be completely decompressed but they have the air in the masks. AS she says this, the oxygen masks drop. John comes out. Someone asks, "Have you figured out a way to land the plane?"

"No," says John, "As far as I can tell, we'll be up here until we run out of fuel and then join Colleen and Santo in the sweet hereafter." We pan through the terrified passengers a-huffin', puffin' and shiverin'.

Tomorrow's exciting show will answer the question...

Q: What do all the passengers inside the doomed plane have in common with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln?

A. They all have their faces plastered on the side of a mountain.


You can watch the previews later today on our PREVUZE II website.

EJ apologizes for trying to hug her earlier. Sami says it's no big deal. If that's the case, he wonders what's bothering her.

Could it be that Sami is upset about Lucas spending 8 to 10 years working on the chain gang? Hooh, aah, hooh, aah.

"I talk a good game, but I have no idea what my next step is," says John.

Sounds like John should be running for president.

Isn’t Kayla a doctor? Shouldn’t she have been checking on the pilots instead of a shrink? Has DOOL morphed into Airport part four or is it part five? I just can’t keep my airplane disaster flicks straight. First, we get the touch this guy’s thigh airlines, and now we’re dealing with the flight from hell storyline. DOOL doesn’t do airplanes very well.

Does anyone care about Max and Stephanie? **** crickets **** crickets **** Thanks Deb for letting me borrow your crickets.

Well, at least the pending air disaster has given Prevuze a wealth of material for photos and captions. Great job as usual!

Guess my question about flying in separately and leaving together is answered. How else can you get the maximum number of people in a dangerous situation and leave the audience at the edge of their seats? (Reaching for barf bags, of course)

A poster from yesterday's Prevuze suggested they were going green, which I thought was an excellent suggestion, but it looks more like going down.

Question, is there anybody in Salem who does not know where the safe house is?

Have they hinted as to who is the mastermind behind the pilot drugging and plane crippling shenanigans? Isn't Stefano in a stupor somewhere? Andre? Lexie? Brady? Mama Partidge's minions? Just tossing names out there.

Leslie, you are welcome to my crickets anytime!

Since Brenda mentioned the safe house, I was wondering something.
When Lucas and Sami were hiding out, they got stuck in some flea bag third rate Bates motel. Yet when EJ and Sami are hiding, they get some slick condo that looks like it belongs in some swanky ski resort.
What's up with that?

I know Sami has the babies now, and they need more room, but if memory serves wasn't she in the middle of a high risk pregnancy before?

Now that the strike is over, I wonder if we will notice anything on DOOL. The difference between the stocked scripts and these new ones couldn't have been more obvious. Rumor has it that Corday will fire the entire writing staff and keep Dena Higly because she was loyal to him during the strike.

In other news, I looks like Kimberly will be making her way back to Salem.
Patsy Pease has agreed to a short run starting later this month.
Could this, possibly mean, oh please let it be true, SHANE can't be far behind?????

bad news Days have to rehire hogan and company back. Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that at the WGA East's meeting this weekend on the resolution to the writers strike, that it was announced that the fired "Days" writers would all be getting their jobs back, because of technicalities that a fired striking writer must be replaced by another striking writer, not scab writers

so were getting the crappy writing back:-(

I also adored the "Listen folks" photos and captions. What a hoot!

Question, is there anybody in Salem who does not know where the safe house is?

Agreed, brendamouse! They even had visitors with baby gifts. Sami got to come and go for jail visits. More silly than safe.

But I did enjoy the thought of a gin rummy smackdown.

OK. So Sami's exact statement was something like, "I won't be able to see him for who knows how many years, except through bullet proof glass."

And of course, the Prevuzism to that would be something like, Lucas is such a bad shot, who needs bullet proof glass?

The bad news, I didn't get to Prevuze until late. The good news, it makes as enjoyable an afternoon break read as it does a breakfast read! :D

I'm afraid I'm going to have to just place a special request that tomorrow's Prevuze include more of the listen up people pictures! Every one of them was great. No prob for Prevuze's genius!

My WTH moment with today's was Lucas sitting in front of the fireplace making a tape in the Salem Jail Gentleman's Club??! And, as always, I LOL over Jawn wanting to know if there was anything left of what knocked out the pilots. HAHAHAHA

I'll be laughing all afternoon!

OK How the heck did this plane ever pass an inspection?! A bunch of the oxygen masks don't work, it was easily tampered with to the point that NOTHING works. The pilots took candy from strangers and got poisoned. It's somehow still flying even though the engines have been shut down and the fuel has been dumped. Depending on the kind of jet, it is possible for it to be flown with computers or manually. I'm assuming this isn't the option. I'm surprised Bo didn't yell out "I play flight simulator I can save all of us". And why is it that John can be wondering around leaving no awake person in the cockpit? I do love the preview for tomorrow where he states the obvious that not everyone is going to make it if their oxygen masks don't work. These people truly are morons. Basic biology. If you have no air, you can't breath, hence live. Though you would think with all that hot air in that cabin the plane could float. Also why are Kayla and Marlena talking when there is a lack of oxygen? Why not just get opera-singer Chloe to belt out a tune to use up the remaining oxygen. My my the writers must think we are idiots. But then again I guess we are a little bit because we keep following this filth. At least this site makes it enjoyable.

All this cr@ppy writing reminds me of the whole Marlena possessed storyline years ago... SO dumb, I just couldn't waste my time w/ it.

It is wasn't for all the se*ual tension between EJ and Sami, I wouldn't be watching. And my sorry self started in 1987!

Somehow, I think we missed a scene. We go from Stephanie and Max having a good time at the park:

Stephanie thanks Max for the best day she's had in a long time. He says he specializes in providing best days for beautiful women. Then moves on. They both claim to miss their parents and know they will be home soon, safe and sound....

to the next scene with Stax:

Stephanie giggles and says, "You're suck a dork!" Max claims all he was trying to do was save her from being run over by a motorcycle gang in the supermarket.

"Motorcycle gang," she asks, "It was an old woman in an electric wheelchair. She might be a member of Hell's Grannies. They say if someone saves your life, you owe them, so I guess I owe you my allegiance."

I know that DOOL is all for continuity (yeah right), but just when did Hell's Grannies come in?

Oh and "You're suck a dork!" conjures up so many mental images.
