Spooned To Death

Lexie arrives at the safe house to check out poor sick Allie. She tells EJ, "You did the right thing calling. A baby this age with a fever could be serious." She asks if Johnny is showing any symptoms and EJ tells her he seems fine.

"I'm surprised you made a house call," says EJ, "Most doctors these days won't do that."

"It's part of my new job," says Lexie, "If this is an infection, I have to deal with it. The hospital just made me Chief of Staph."
She asks about Sami. EJ says she had to go out.

Actually, Sami's in, not out. In jail. With Lucas. He's upset she didn't bring Allie, and they argue. Lucas wants her to assure him she will bring Allie before he goes up the river. Sami insists he will get out of prison. Lucas isn't so sure about that.

Phillip and Chloe wander the streets of New Ross. Chloe is sorry she can't be very good company. She's worried about Brady. Phillip wonders if she's more worried about being arrested. She follows that up by challenging the sincerity of Phillip's new bond with Shawn. Phillip snorts, "Let's keep walking."

Belle and Shawn are downstairs at the bed and breakfast. Giddy Belle squeals, "I just can't believe we got Claire back."

"It's hard for me to believe, too," says Claire, "I thought I had finally pulled off my escape. I had arranged to meet Ciara at Loch Ness, but now she'll have to hunt for the monster on her own."

Patch, Kayla and OMB arrive. Big reunion. Patch thinks OMB has one hell of a surprise waiting for him, "I don't know what will get to him more... the shock of meeting Colleen or the stroke he has afterward."

Bo and Hope are up in their room getting ready. Bo makes ominous remarks about his back killing him. He's surprised OMB agreed to come, but he's glad he's there. He wonders how his pop will react to finding out Colleen is alive, "He'll probably be confused like the rest of us. He'll probably be confused about Colleen, too."

Sinister John, the man in black, puts his foot up on a chair and sticks his knife into his boot as Marlena sleeps. John turns and heads out the door. "Where do you thing you are going," asks Marlena.

Lexie comes down and says Allie has croup. She prescribes steam and ibuprofen. EJ frets but Lexie tells him to calm down. She says this is common among infants, "I treated Belle for it just last week." EJ says he loves Allie just as much as Johnny. Lexie thinks he's putting himself in an emotionally vulnerable position. He thinks Sami can't raise them on her own and he won't let them down. He tells Lexie Sami is visiting Lucas. Lexie bursts his balloon and says Sami and Lucas love each other.

Sami begs Lucas to fight the charges. "You don't get it, do you," yells Lucas, "I'm not getting out of this. It's over. I pleaded guilty to the attempted murder of EJ DiMera."

Phillip says he meant everything he said to Shawn. He's done chasing after Belle. "We'll see," says Chloe.

Patch announces they have a surprise for OMB, but he has to take a nap first. He agrees and goes upstairs. Shawn and Belle follow.

Patch wonders if they should have told OMB in advance. "Of course not," says Kayla, "That would have been the sensible thing to do, so we couldn't do that. He'll be much better off now that we've drug him halfway around the world to have his heart attack." Kayla hopes the trip helps erase some painful memories for OMB.

"Don't worry," says Patch, "He won't remember a thing once he keels over dead from the shock of seeing Colleen."

Bo and Hope wonder why Patch and Kayla didn't tell OMB about Colleen. "That would have been the sensible thing to do so they couldn't do that," says Bo, "He'll be much better off now that they've drug him halfway around the world to have his heart attack." Bo's back continues to bother him. Hope decides she will give him a backrub later. Bo perks up. Hope thinks a part of Colleen wanted to punish Santo.

"She also punished OMB by keeping quiet," says Hope.

"Now everyone wishes the cranky old motormouth would keep quiet," says Bo. Hope thinks Santo is the one who made false promises.

John says he is going downstairs for breakfast. Well, Marlena has ordered room service. John says he knows the place doesn't have room service. Marlena made special plans. She goes into the next room to dress. "Whatever you have to do Blondie," says John, "I'm not going anywhere until I've completed my mission."

Phillip wonders what he has to say to get Chloe to believe he's being honest about backing off and not going after Belle any more. Chloe says there is nothing he can say. He will have to show her. Phillip says she will also have to continue to prove she had nothing to do with Brady's disappearance. He's had men on retainer to look for Claire and he's going to keep them on retainer to look for Brady. She thanks him.

Shawn and Belle interrupt. Belle sends Shawn and Claire off to play. Claire wonders if she can outrun Shawn. Belle says she thinks Claire is doing OK after her ordeal. She wonders if Colleen knows anything about Brady. Chloe doesn't think she does. She and Phillip decide they don't belong at the big reunion, so they will continue to wander through New Ross while the family gives OMB the shock of his life. Shawn and Claire return. He and Belle decide to take Claire for a walk. They leave. Chloe turns to Phillip, "Well... that was awkward."

John shovels his morning gruel into his mouth and says they wasted their time seeing the old lady. He doesn't think she can help get his memory back. Marlena orders him to put his spoon down.

What," asks John, "Are you afraid of finding the cranky old bat spooned to death? I told you I'm not going to hurt anyone, especially not that irritating old coot."

Bo and Hope rush down and greet Steve and Kayla. "He's in for one hell of a surprise," says Bo.

Patch has news about Stefano, "He has taken a little trip to the State of Catatonia." Kayla tells them Stefano is in long term care.

"Right now," says Bo, "we gotta make sure that pop sees his sister. He's in for one hell of a reunion."

EJ understands Sami just can't switch off her emotions. He knows part of her still loves Lucas, but EJ and Sami share a child together. He can't walk away. He thinks it says something that Sami left him with Allie. He knows they are building trust. Lexie thinks his history with Sami isn't a good foundation for trust.

Lucas repeats the fact that he has pleaded guilty to attempted murder. He shot EJ because he did not trust in their love. He feels horrible about what he did to Sami and their family.

John stares out the window. Marlena asks if he wants to go outside. "No," says John, "I just want to see the old lady and get it over with."

"Get what over with?"

"This pointless conversation."

The maid interrupts the pointless conversation and announces Colleen has asked everyone to come to her room.

The whole clan meets in the hallway. They usher OMB into Colleen's room. Colleen turns, "Hello Shawny me boy."

OMB gasps, "Leeny! It can't be!" Hugs and tears.

Colleen says she wanted everyone to think she was dead and explains she ran instead of jumping off the cliff. She feels responsible for all the pain she has caused and will never be able to forgive herself. OMB is overwhelmed. "Will you ever be able to forgive me," asks Colleen.

"I can if you brought me toy lorry with you," says OMB, "I love you. All I can do is thank God for bringing you back to me."

They've been apart for 50 years and together for 50 seconds. Kayla thinks that's enough. She yanks him away and decides he can visit later. Shawn hauls him off. After OMB leaves, Bo introduces the Johnsons and tells her Kayla is his sister. Colleen knows about Roman and Kimberly too. She thanks them for bringing Shawny back to her. Bo lectures her for letting him think she was dead all these years. She says it weighed heavily on her heart, but she watched them all these years, "I was your guardian coot." Kayla tells her Stefano is catatonic. Colleen thinks this will be the end of the insanity. It is.! The screen goes blank!

Aw shucks. It was just a commercial break.

Lexie says EJ has no idea what is going on between Sami and Lucas right now. She gets a page. EJ heads up to check on Allie.

Lexie answers the page. She asks if they have a sample of the doomed patient's blood. She says the poor guy is out of the country and they can't get more blood right now, but wants them to use the sample they have left to run a few more tests.

Sami doesn't want Lucas to go to prison. She asks him to change his plea. Lucas can't, "I wish I could change a lot of things. I wish I were a better shot. I thought we would make it this time. I thought we would spend all the Days Of Our Lives together. Don't wait for me."

Colleen is sorry for all the pain she has caused. But she says she has paid for her mistakes by living her life alone. With a family like hers, that's not much of a punishment. She asks if life has been good to John.

"It's none of your business," growls John.

"I sense pain in you," says Colleen, "I hope you find your son."

"In other words," says John, "You just don't want the pain to stop, do you?"

Most of the crowd leaves. John and Marlena stay to ask a few questions. John wants a word with Colleen alone. Marlena refuses to leave him alone with her.

Lexie gives EJ instructions, as she gets ready to go. EJ thinks it's helpful to have a big sister that's a doctor. He asks if she thinks they did the right thing with Stefano. She does. No second thoughts. Hugs. EJ says it was the right thing to do, "Now we all can get on with our lives, especially the Bradys."

Patch wonders how they can get some food. No one else is really hungry, so Patch goes behind the bar to see if he can figure out how to operate the tap. Pulling a lever can be such a complex task. The rest of the crowd discusses the OMB-Colleen reunion. Do you think we should have told him in advance," asks Kayla.

"That would have been the sensible thing to do so you couldn't do that," says Bo, "He'll be much better off now that you've drug him halfway around the world to have his heart attack."

Hope leaves to go check on OMB.

Marlena asks, "Are you trying to get rid of me?"

Colleen says, "You shouldn't mind her staying."

John bites her head off, "Nobody asked you!" He turns to Marlena and asks if he can have a word with her. Marlena agrees and John gently touches her shoulder and turns her toward the door.

SLAM! John shoves her head into the door and Marlena collapses into a heap on the floor.

When the audience stops cheering, Colleen gasps, "OMG! I hope ye did'na damage the door! "

Lucas thinks he'll get 10 to 20 years. Sami rages, "How is this happening?" Lucas says he didn't ask her there to fight. He asked her there to say goodbye and hold her in his arms one last time.

He asks, "Can you promise you will never stop loving me?"

Sami breaks down, "You were my one and only love. Well, OK, you were in the top ten, anyway. I will never love anyone the way I love you." Hot kiss. Lucas tells her to stop crying. He asks her to tell Allie he loves her. Sami promises. Sami wades out through a gusher of tears.

EJ comes downstairs. Lexie smiles. She says this has been a strange week, but she just gotten some good news, "I know it's against every medical regulation in the book, but I might as well tell you. You'll find out soon enough anyway. I just found out Kayla is pregnant. She's going to become the first woman in history to have her own grandchild."

Kayla has Bo sit down and says there is something they have to tell him. They didn't want to say it in front of Hope. "It's not good man," says a somber Patch.

John takes his knife out. Colleen shudders.

John threatens, "You make one sound and anyone who comes through the door dies with you."

Colleen gasps, "Why in the name of God are you doing this?"

Meanwhile, Ciara scubas fifty feet below the surface in the chilly, murky waters of Loch Ness. Off in the distance, she thinks she can see a huge, indistinct object swimming toward her...

ME, TOO! Thank God I'm home today because I was in hysterics when Squints slammed Marlena's head into the door. I'm still laughing! What will happen when I try to watch it?? HAHHAHAHAHAHA

I couldn't believe they showed OMB Colleen and then yanked him out of there. WTH!?!

And a Chief of Staph making housecalls? Not even in a fantasy world would that happen.

Prevuze, I don't know what to say. Between the great pictures and Prevuisms I will be laughing all day!

"It's part of my new job," says Lexie, "If this is an infection, I have to deal with it. The hospital just made me Chief of Staph."

Hee, hee, hee… and a happy early morning homonym to you too!!!

Holy smokes! What a cornucopia of medical conditions…croup, pregnancy, vegetable Stefano, secret possible fatal illness. Lexie is in on all of it, and she even makes house calls. Apparently, Salem’s hospital has no specialists.

Sami wades out through a gusher of tears.

Now that Lucas is headed for the crow bar hotel, does this mean that Sami can quit her blubbering? Shawn, Belle, and Claire are supposed to be off on an extended cruise. By the way, who’s paying for that? Anyway, if Sami stops crying and Belle weeps off screen, DOOL will be able to cut back on expenses. The need for Gatorade will be dramatically reduced because the fear of dehydration will be minimized. No one will have to worry about replenishing electrolytes.

Lucas is moaning and groaning about getting 10 to 15 years in the slammer for attempted murder. Yet, he keeps saying he wishes he had killed EJ. Murder very often means a lifetime behind bars socializing with some nasty characters. He could have ended up like Richard Speck wearing women’s panties to get his jollies but that’s not going to happen. Somehow, his sentence will be reduced to next to nothing, and he will be back sneering at EJ.

If Ciara manages to get her grubby little hands on the Loch Ness monster, will her parents let her keep him? Great Prevuze with outstanding pictures…just the bright spot I needed after hiking through all the snow.

Chief of Staph....how appropro for Lexie. So many funnies today. Only bright spot in being home sick the last few days. Just wondering if I can stretch it out until Monday to see OMB and Colleen. Great pics as well. Thanks to Prevuze and the many contributors.

Prevuze II is now up. Just a note to let you know by overwhelming popular demand, today's clip includes the destined-to-be classic Marlena slamification scene. Upon rewatching it, I must say the look on John's face after he does it is worth its weight in gold.

Just had to watch Prevuze II before commenting. This may take a while. I'm laughing so hard it's difficult to type. LOLOLOL

Jawn wasn't the only one whose facial expression was priceless. The look Marlena had after she bounced off the door was a hoot!

Fabulous pictures (Colleen's PMS, Bulldog's pic of Jawn, Weekend at Bernies)! And, I'll never think of a Chief of Staff (Staph) the same way again.

I'm with everyone else. Why did OMB even LET them drag him away from his long-lost, presumed dead sister? And what is with Shawn being concerned about Patch & Kayla showing up in Ireland?? They just discovered Kayla's fabled aunt. Why wouldn't she show up?

Thanks, Prevuze!

So who do you think will be "killed" off? Bo (his back hurts, could be Pancreatic cancer, wait, didnt Isabelle die from that?) or Hope. Afterall, she did have all those test done before she rejoined the Police force....

Anonymous --
It will be Bo. I don't think he'll be killed off, but he's going to get very sick, and Victor, a blood relative, will have to step up and save him, all to remind the viewers that Bo is not a Brady by blood -- so that the viewers don't go "EEEUUUWWWW" when they find out that John is Colleen's son, since that would make Shawn and Belle first cousins if Bo was actually OMB's son instead of Victor's.

Oooops, sorry, I meant Belle and Shawn would be SECOND cousins -- Bo and John would be first cousins if Bo was a true Brady.

Don't hurt yourself cfish.

It would be second cousins.
They would be the children of 1st cousins, Bo and John.

But they aren't, and I agree this Bo being sick thing is a set up to remind everyone that Bo is not a "blood" Brady.

As I watched yesterday I was thinking OMG how frustrating would all this be if you didn't already know who Colleen was, that John was her son, and where all this was going.

Especially when Bope and Jorlena stood there repeating, "It can't be!" about a dozen times before they finally spit out who she was.
I can imagine people screaming, "WHO IS IT!" at the screen.

LOL

It is probably also why they had Victor help Chelsea. TPTB need to make 'sure ' we get that Bo is not a "blood Brady".

I have to wait until I get home to check out Prevuze II. Can't seem to get it at work:(

I read a spoiler that said, Colleen and Santo are reunited in the afterlife, so John must off her, but not before she has time to tell him she is his mother???

I love the look on Marlena's face after Johns slams her into the door, priceless!!

I guess once again nobody has any real responsibilities on DOOL, Shawn can just up and leave the academy, and Belle, if she ever was going to school, can just leave that behind.
I am sure everything will be held for them until they get back.

OMG AWESOME!!! Everything - the pictures the dialogue additions and the play by play. I FLOVE it when the crowd cheers, chants and/or boos :)

The "Marlena slamification" is priceless and will surely go down as a classic Days moment. Even if this whole Jawn storyline goes down the drain from this point on, this one action will have made it worthwhile! DH and DH have to be totally LOVING the chance to be so out of character!

Love Lexie and EJ bonding and adore EJ with the babies. "Chief of Staph" Lexie lmao!!

ITA on WTH is it with these people shoving "dead" people on the unsuspecting without warning?? First Marlena trying to give Belle another heart attack by bringing John into her hospital room. And now they take poor OMB half way around the world to reunite with his dead sister. Almost looks like they're trying to weed out the family (but I guess the "writers" are doing that on their own) = grrr

Now to watch Marlena's slamification" again and again and again -- that will keep me smiling all weekend :)

A HUGE Thank You!!

Anonymous Klaus said...

Deb hit the nail on the head. I remember making a similar comment when they kept up the "It can't be!" "But it is" "You're supposed to be dead" "Well, I'm not" "But it's impossible!" "Clearly it isn't" "How is it possible!" "I'm alive."

OH COME ON!! WTF!!?

That would have been the sensible thing to do, so we couldn't do that. He'll be much better off now that we've drug him halfway around the world to have his heart attack."
I was thinking that same thing. Isn't he too old to be getting surprises like this??

They've been apart for 50 years and together for 50 seconds.
I lol'd till my sides hurt.

She's going to become the first woman in history to have her own grandchild."
Ouch! but, HAHAHA!

Yeah, I'm sure Kayla appreciates letting the man who helped torture her husband be one of the first in on the good news.

Isabella Tuscano Brady turned out to be Victor Kiriakas's daughter. She was no relation to the Dimeras. That is how Brady Black is Victor's grandson.

First I want to say how ridiculous the whole welcome home ceremony for Claire was. I mean, they left the child alone with who knows who for months and nobody mentioned her while Daddy was chasing bad guys and mommy was in bed with them. Now, she's been kidnapped and returned and you'd think the child had the entire Brady fortune sewn into her drawers. What about Ciara? Is she kidnapped too? She needs to get Crystal to kidnap her so somebody will care if she's alive or dead.
Now. Someone told me they saw a tribute on the Days show saying " In memory of B____ (BB) B____. She wasn't sure of the name. But, I didn't see it. Is this a regular Joe, a cast member or a character?

That tribute was a still screen at the very end of the show, a black screen with while lettering and was either in memory of or a dedication to a name I didn't recognize. I assumed it was for someone who had worked on the show staff, but behind the camera. Don't know for sure.
