The Morals Of A Groundhog

Sami and EJ amble down the stairs. Sami thinks the kids were impossible tonight. EJ points out it was Allie that was crying and kept perfect little Johnny awake. The fuse is lit and the inane bickering begins over which of the two children is less mature. They also argue over whether Allie or Johnny is less mature.

EJ doesn't get where this is coming from. He says he loves Allie just as much as Johnny. Poor Allie. "We have to fall in love," says EJ, "and just have tonight to do it."

Chloe wants proof that Nicole knows where Brady is.

Evil Tom tells Stephanie to be a good girl or he will have to mess up his shiny new knife with her blood. He takes her out of the pub. Max comes out and wonders where Stephanie went.

Daniel is back with Chelsea in her room. Nurse Monica hooks up her tubes. Chelsea doesn't get it. They've done the same tests over and over again. Daniel says, "I'm sorry Chelsea I just had to make sure."

Chelsea asks, "Sure of what?"

The cops haul Ava in. Ava says, "Do you have any idea what's going to go down when my daddy finds out about this? You know what can happen to someone when Daddy's angry? He sends you back to Miss Hannigan's orphanage, that's what."

Abe gets off the phone, "That was the head of the detail I had watching Stephanie. He says she vanished without a trace."

"Yep," says Roman, "That sounds like it was your detail all right."

EJ says they have to prove the relationship is real, "They'll be asking some very personal questions like if you snore, if you are a republican or a democrat, do you have any phobias." Sami's phobia is all things DiMera. EJ asks, "You helped before this situation with Nicole came up so would you just help me now?"

Nicole tells Chloe she got the information from Victor's PC. He wrote checks to a rehab clinic in Switzerland. Nicole hired a PI and got more info. She shows Chloe a photo of Brady, "But Brady was always such a goodie-two-shoes. I can't figure out why he was in a drug rehab center."

"It's just a wild guess," says Chloe, "but maybe it was to kick a drug habit." She tells Nicole Brady turned into a flaming junkie and he was ashamed of that and wanted to keep it quiet.

Victor walks up and overhears, "Brady got hooked because of you."

The group badgers Ava for information on Stephanie. Kayla cares so much about the unborn baby she who is hanging onto life by a thread that she and Steve head out on another wild goose chase. Abe tells Bo and Hope Chelsea is back in the hospital. Bony and Clod head for the hospital.

Bo and Hope rush into Chelsea's room. She says she's better now that they are there. She asks what happened to Hope's shoulder. Hope says it's an old injury. Daniel says, "Chelsea has developed an infection."

"She is an infection," says Bo.

Chelsea says she would do this all over again if she could. Bo leans over her and gives her the pep talk, "I want you to fight this. But whatever happens... SAY IT WITH HIM... I'm here for you."

"We'll fight it," says Chelsea, "With Dr. Hunk's help."

Ava tells Roman and Abe they are finished, "Daddy will sue." Abe wants to talk to Daddy. Ava wants to talk to her lawyer, " NOW!"

Roman and Abe tell her they'll leave while she makes her call, "Don't do anything stupid. We'll handle that."

Ava snorts, "I take my coffee black, two sugars." They leave and Ava makes her call, "Call Daddy and tell him I need help."

Chloe asks, "Is it true, Victor? Are you the one who took Brady from me?"

"Don't play the victim," says Victor, "I want to know what really happened to Brady."

"He seemed unhappy," says Chloe.

"He was married to you," says Victor, "What did you expect?"

Chloe says since he was unhappy she introduced him to her friends who just happened to be a bunch of artistic junkies. It broke her heart when he got hooked and she tried to help him. Victor says, "Cut the act. Your recklessness nearly cost my grandson his life."

Patch and Kayla come into the pub. Pete tells them Stephanie left and left her cell phone upstairs. Patch calls Abe and asks for an APB.

Evil Tom drags Stephanie into a seedy warehouse. Max follows and confronts him. Evil Tom threatens to kill Stephanie if Max comes closer. Tempting as it is, Max doesn't take his offer. He says if Evil Tom wanted to kill her he would have already done it. He says the cops are on the way, "Put the knife down and give her to me."

Max and Evil Tom stare at each other. Stephanie ends the fun by kicking Evil Tom and running off to Max. Max and Stephanie hug. Sirens blare. Red lights flash. Evil Tom has left the building.

Frenetic Sami tells EJ to start asking the questions. He tells her to relax. They go through favorite foods, good and bad habits. She softens as she talks about a good habit he has – The way he puts the twins to bed.

Victor and Chloe argue over who caused Brady to turn to drugs. Victor sort of has the upper hand since he wasn't anywhere near Brady when he got hooked. Chloe insists she loved Brady. As they continue to squabble, Nicole says, "God this is fun."

Phillip wants to know why Victor didn't tell him where Brady was. Victor says he didn't tell him because he didn't want him to have to keep the secret. Translation: He didn't want Phillip to blab it all over town.

Bo rants. He knew this operation was a bad idea. Daniel says Chelsea will definitely survive this. As the audience groans, Daniel says, "But there is also some bad news."

The cops haul Evil Tom back into the warehouse and tell Stephanie and Max they will need them at the station to make a statement. Steve and Kayla have somehow stumbled on the crummy warehouse. They rush in and we have a big reunion. Max asks Patch, "Does this have something to do with the crazy woman in your life?"

"No," says Patch, "It doesn't have anything to do with Kayla." He tells them Ava is in custody and the Vitalis should be in jail soon.

Stephanie and Kayla sit over by a wall and Stephanie feels the baby kick. Kayla stops kicking as Patch thanks Max for taking care of Stephanie.

More dumb questions from EJ and Sami. "You're a good mother but a terrible cook," says EJ.

Sami comes back with, "You have the morals of a groundhog the way you will take on any client." Sami apologizes for insulting all groundhogs.

"But we're over that, right," asks EJ.

"Oh, believe me," says Sami, "I'm over it." EJ thinks this is illustrating they know each other pretty well. That's not a big deal in Sami's book. EJ thinks she's a cynic. Sami thinks no one will believe they have fallen in love. Sami claims she wants it to work and thinks the session with the INS agent will be a piece of cake.

Daniel says Chelsea has peritonitis, "The infection has done extensive and irreversible damage."

"Since when does peritonitis affect the brain," asks Bo.

Roman and Abe come back in with Ava. They offer her a chance to make a statement. "Shove it," says Ava. Roman says if she doesn't want to make the statement they will just book her.

Ava says to bring her Patch and she will start talking. She thinks it would have been better if they all had died – Except Patch. She needs him. He is the love of her life. Abe tells her to calm down. Ava says she is in hell. She waited for him to come back and when he did, everything just blew up in her face again. Ava's rage crescendos and she goes into convulsions. She hits the floor and flops around alike a fish on the dock.

Victor orders Chloe out of his sight. Chloe doesn't want him to play God with her husband. Phillip takes Chloe out.

Nicole taunts Victor, "I told you I had something on you."

"You can get out of my sight, too," snorts Vic.

Patch, Kayla and Stephanie return to the pub. Stephanie wants to know what happened at the Vitali compound. "You don't want to know," says Kayla, as she remembers her little discovery. Patch just wants to focus on the fact they are all back together. Kayla goes for tea. Max wants a shot of Irish whiskey and a beer.

Patch goes over and asks Victor what's going on. He tells him Bo and Hope are at the hospital. Victor assumes this had to do with the Vitalis. Patch says he is grateful to Bo for doing what he did. Victor rushes out.

Daniel wants to speak to Chelsea alone. Chelsea says they are family so Bo and Hope can stay.

SSCCRREEAAMM!!

Bo and Hope head for the hallway to see what the screaming is all about and find the EMT's wheeling Ava in. She rocks and rolls as Roman tells Bo Ava had a seizure.

Suddenly, Ava sees Hope, "You... this is all your fault."

Sami doesn't want this to fail, but she also says she doesn't want to live anywhere near EJ. EJ gets disgusted and tells her she is incapable of hiding her true feelings. He wants to call the session off, "Goodnight Samantha."

Sami insists she can do anything she sets her mind to, "I want to try again."

"Try what again," says Nicole, "Having problems EJ? How can I help?"

Dr. Roman orders Ava to her room.

Victor finds Bo and Hope, "What were you two thinking?"

"Thinking," says Bo, "I knew we forgot to execute part of the plan."

Victor says, "The next time you go up against the mob, let me help." Right now, however, they are concerned about Chelsea. The three of them go into her room. Victor asks what's up. Daniel stares.

Patch, Kayla and Stephanie salute Max. Modest Max thinks he didn't do much compared to what Patch and Kayla did. Kayla just wants to put this behind them. Patch gives them the cheery reminder that Ava's father is still around.

Sami tells Nicole they are in the middle of something. Nicole wants to consult with her lawyer. She tells EJ Victor has kicked her out, so she spilled his big juicy secret. That gets Sami's attention, but Nicole won't tell what the secret was. Suddenly Sami warms up to Nicole. Nicole decides she will spill the beans for a martini. Sami agrees and Nicole says Brady is alive in Switzerland recovering from a drug addiction.

Chloe and Phillip rush into Abe's office. Chloe wants Abe to help her get her passport back and she also wants to press charges against Victor.

Patch thinks everyone should be cautious. He says they will all be fine. The number one job is to take care of Kayla and the newest member of the Johnson family.

Downstairs, little Peanut decides with this family taking care of him, he'd better start writing his will.

Daniel drops the bomb, "Chelsea's fallopian tubes were affected. I'm sorry, but you'll never be able to have children."

Nicole tells Chloe she got the information from Victor's PC.

How did Nicole get Victor’s password or did she just guess that it is “I married a skanky ho”?

"Chelsea has developed an infection."

"She is an infection," says Bo.


…and it’s resistant to anti-biotics.

"He seemed unhappy," says Chloe.

"He was married to you," says Victor, "What did you expect?"


A human being can just only take so much whining.

Max and Stephanie hug. Sirens blare. Red lights flash. Evil Tom has left the building.

That’s it? Why couldn’t the Hope/Bo/Steve/Kayla kidnapping have ended this quickly?

Nicole decides she will spill the beans for a martini.

Nicole has quite a mantra…I will spill my guts for booze. By the way, just how did she get into the mansion unannounced? It’s also good to know that Sami still reacts before the brain kicks in.

Daniel drops the bomb, "Chelsea's fallopian tubes were affected. I'm sorry, but you'll never be able to have children."

…so just how soon will she end up being PG? Here’s hoping it won’t be Dr. Feelgood’s spawn. Queue up the Motley Crue!!

Another great job Prevuze!!!

While it of course takes all episode for Daniel to tell Chelsea about her condition, everyone in Salem EXCEPT Nick joins her to hear.

With all the infertility in this town, I wouldn't drink the water if I was a woman.

They explained that away in kind of a strange way. Sami asks Nicole who let her in and Nicole responds, "Ooh... that Rolf is quite the charmer." I guess we're supposed to infer she charmed Rolf in order to get in, but it really sounds more like Rolf charmed her. Which, by the way, is easy to do as long as you have a supply of booze handy.

Kayla catching Pava in the sack has certainly provided a wealth of great pictures the past couple of days. Lucas pulling practical joke phone calls from jail was a hoot as well.

Abe gets off the phone, "That was the head of the detail I had watching Stephanie. He says she vanished without a trace."

"Yep," says Roman, "That sounds like it was your detail all right."


My thoughts exactly. A stranger walks Steph out of the FRONT DOOR of the pub with a knife to her back and the SPD detail didn’t see that?? Was the officer taking a leak in the alley or something?

Bony and Clod Hey, clean-up on my keyboard needed here. LOLOLOL

The last post in yesterday's Prevuze from Lisa noted this: "And if Brady had a drug addiction don't you think Chloe would have used that as her defense that he might have pissed off a dealer and that's who took him away?" Again my exact thoughts. Just one of those DOOL TLTs I guess.

Great Prevuze!

That wasn't in italics but it's gotta be a Prevuism. HAHAHAHA

Did I miss something or did Kayla just dismiss finding Steve and Ava in bed? I was hoping for a good fight between Payla but I guess they can't have them have any kind of dialogue that might soil their angelic reputations.

LOL over Chloe's zit. Great Prevuze today!! TGIP!

In this case, I am happy...why should Chelsea be thinking about kids at all right now? She has Nick's heart to break and hot doctors to do.

So that's how they explain months of listening to Chloe go on and on and on and on about how much she misses Brady and how innocent she is???? This show is so infuriating!!! I love Victor's characted but the writers dropped the ball on this one. Victor is the same man who had his son's face transplanted!!! I mean come on!!! Drug Rehab?!!
When are the good(and I use that term very loosly)summer storylines gonna start??

I was thinking the SAME thing. Hello? If I found MY husband in bed with another woman, she'd be picking her teeth up off the floor.

dazeisdum - I'm with you. When I read the Brady is a druggie spoiler yesterday, I was like HUH? You would think Chloe would have mentioned this to oh I don't know, ANYONE?? As in it may be an explanation for his disappearance.
No wait, that would be LOGICAL.

And speaking of LOGICAL, come on Applecheeks. If the SPD would have interfered with Steph getting kidnapped that would have meant there were ACTUAL police officers on the force, who did ACTUAL work!
And it wouldn't have given "Mighty Max" a shot a being the big hero now would it??

Hahaha, Brady a junkie. Just like his dad, why not just blame the genes and get it over with. I, for one, believe Brady is a grown man capable of his own choices. Unless Chloe strapped him down and dumped some heroin in his mouth.

However this is a soap, so the most frequent excuse is "I did it (because of/for) (YOU/US)."

So, really, Victor knew where Brady was the ENTIRE time? Or did he just find Brady in a clinic somewhere.

sarcasm
I have to admire Chloe, I mean, to protect her husbands name she let people think she was a ruthless murderer. I lack the balls to do something so brave and powerful. /sarcasm

With all the infertility in this town, I wouldn't drink the water if I was a woman.

Bwahaha!

Ever since Krista Allen played Billie, I've hated everything about her, including her dead/crack baby, who turns out not to be dead, but just a crack baby named Chelsea.

Tsk anonymous, we still have Austin and it's entirely possible (because this is a soap) for Kate to be pregnant. Oh how hilarious that would be, please, PLEASE, writers make this happen!!

So, did Patch & Ava really DO IT? or were they stopped mid-stroke when Kayla came in? Kate pregnant...lol who's would it be? Victor's, Dr. Hunk, or maybe Mickey's? I think Kate & Roman will get back together. I'd like to see Marlena & Nichole fight over new JOhn. Thanks Prevuze, you always make my day.

Patch and Ava did not get the job done, unless it was history's quickest quickie. Unfortunately for Patch, Kayla will still give him full credit for it.

Combine the comments of Hope being a surrogate mother for Chelsea and the possibilities of Kate being pregnant; mix in the fact Nick has already 'done' Chelsea and Billie... the ewww factor alone presents a possibility for a storyline.

I'm sure Carrie and Austin are busy making babies as I type. After all making a baby is Carrie's only concern.

Chelsea may not be able to conceive without the help of science but that doesn't mean she can't carry to term.

She just needs to go to the Green Mountain Lounge and talk to the barkeep.
