From My Cold, Dead Hands

Once again, there were problems at the start of the feed. We pick it up about ten minutes in. Chelsea and Daniel are together in Bo and Hope's living room. Chelsea asks, "You're pulling the age card?"

"No," says Daniel, "It's what it is. It's what it's been."

Chelsea says, "With an answer that stupid, you must be married."

Sami and EJ bicker about who can ask questions of whom. Sami snorts, "Let's get back to the Wicked Witch of the West and what she wants from you." EJ wants to know how Sami knows the person in question is Nicole. He tells her he has other clients, "Mickey has been kind enough to throw me a bone. He had a few clients he was willing to send my way since they wanted to win their cases." He tries to change the subject and suggests a trip to the mall. She suggests if they now have some money, they might want to get out of the house of horrors they are living in.

Sami tells him about her strange encounter with John last night, "We bonded in an incredibly dysfunctional way. Now I'm feeling guilty. I regret some of the things I said to him."

John has replaced Stefano's painting with a gaudy glamour shot of Marlena. At least she's dressed. It embarrasses her and she asks him to take it down. He refuses, "Its' a monument to our rich and exciting history – That crazy roller coaster ride that was our past." Marlena wants to know how he found out about this rich and exciting roller coaster ride. John says someone filled him in but can't say whom.

Sami overhears and walks into the room. In a rare moment of truthfulness she says, "John, thank you for keeping your promise. Mom, I'm the one who told him everything."

Marlena wishes Sami hadn't said anything. She wonders what Sami told him. John says it was enlightening and entertaining, "I found out I could be a real jerk when I put my mind to it... and so could you."

Daniel says he's not married. "But you were," whines the brat. He doesn't answer, but says she has Nick. Chelsea says she isn't in love with him any more. Daniel says he needs to be alone, like a gypsy. Chelsea thinks she could help with that and hang with him, like a leech.

Daniel thinks that would be a waste of time, "There is something here that you cannot fix – this icky plot that has us paired together."

Bo has Martino in an arm-lock. Martino has a cut on his chin indicating Bo has slugged him. Macho Bo grits his teeth, "Your reputation doesn't scare me. You have the right to remain silent..."

Roman interrupts, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, Bo! What are you doing? It's poor form for a Salem cop to read a perp his rights." Ava wonders why Martino bailed her out. He says it's because he loves her. She wants him to stop it. She wonders if he paid the shrink to give her those drugs. She presses and Martino tells her to stop.

Bo wants to get back to his arrest. Abe drags Bo away and tells him to stop it, "We don't have any charges!"

"Your point," asks Bo.

Roman backs up Abe. Bo insists Martino is responsible for OMB's death and he let Ava run free and kidnap them. Bo gees back over to Martino, "I'm about to take off my badge. You're gonna pay for what you did."

Roman pulls him off again. Stephanie goes to get Bo water. Kate soaks it in. Martino says he wants to talk to Ava as she starts to go off. She doesn't want any part of him, "Maybe I'm starting to see you for who you are. This is the freest I have felt in a long time." She walks out.

Kate asks, "Are you a heartbroken father or was that just a performance?" Martino says he loves her. He did what he did to protect her. He suggests they sit down and finish their breakfast.

Chelsea tells Daniel her past is all messed up. She tells him about Zack's death.

John grins, "I understand we hooked up on a conference room table."

Marlena picks her jaw up off the floor, "It's not appropriate to say things like that."

"Half the town knew about it," says John.

EJ enjoys the show, "Not me."

Marlena changes the subject, "EJ..."

EJ smirks, "Present!"

"How is it going with immigration," she asks.

"I don't know," says EJ, "It's about time we heard." Right on cue, the fax machine rings, "Maybe that’s the news we've been waiting for."

Nicole joins the fools' parade, "Oh, goody, am I just in time?"

Daniel tells Chelsea he already he knows about Zack, and has known for a while. People at the hospital told him about it, "I think it's sad. I'm touched. I don't think less of you though." Chelsea wonders if he wants to tell her a few things about himself. He dodges the question and says someday she will find the right person. He says he's done talking and starts to leave. She blocks him.

EJ pulls the fax out of the machine. Sami grabs it from him. She says she won't give it up until EJ tells her what's going on with Nicole, "Are you having sex with Nicole or what?"

"How could I be when I'm getting so much from you?"

Nicole crawls all over EJ, "Tell her about our mad, passionate affair."

Sami blows a gasket, "I KNEW IT!"

EJ tries to mitigate things, "Nicole, stop it."

Nicole smiles and lifts her eyebrows, "I wish I could."

Sami wants to know what Nicole is doing there. Nicole sobers up and says she's there to talk strategy with her lawyer. EJ grabs for the fax, but Sami continues to hold it at arm's length. She does her best Charlton Heston, "You can have it when you rip it from my cold, dead hands."

"RIP IT! RIP IT," chants the audience.

They have a wiggle-fight and EJ wins.

EJ looks at the fax and sighs, "My visa has been renewed." Sami continues her meltdown, accuses Nicole of being in this with EJ, shoves her toward the door and tells her to get out.

"Don't push," says Nicole, "You know what happened last time."

The audience chants, "CATFIGHT! CATFIGHT! CATFIGHT!"

Daniel can only live in Salem if Chelsea understands they can't be together. She tells him to go. She says she will be fine. If he wanted to be with her he'd make it happen. Daniel leaves and heads for Toys-R-Us to go trolling.

Kate says she has lost her appetite. Martino says he will give her a call. Kate doesn't think that's a good idea.

Abe, Bo and Roman are back at the office. Roman says, "We don't want to let Martino know he's under a spotlight."

Bo grumbles, "The creep ought to be under the lights at Wrigley field."

"I'm not sure he's the type of heavy hitter the Cubs need," says Roman.

Ava joins them. She wants the truth about her father. If they can help her, maybe she can help them.

Roman and Bo arrive at Bo's house. Bo wonders where Chelsea is. Roman thinks being out could get her mind off things. He thinks Bo is pushing himself too hard. Bo promises he will rest when they can get Vitali behind bars. Roman thinks it's just a matter of time. Bo doesn't think the full impact of her situation has hit Chelsea.

Chelsea comes into the pub. She gets hugs from Max and Stephanie. Poor Nick comes up and says he tried to reach her. Chelsea says, "I had my cell off. My brain cell." They go off to talk. Stephanie thinks this isn't going to be good, "Nick will need friends."

"He's losing Chelsea," says Max, "He'll need them for the celebration."

Sami keeps acting like a child so Mommy steps in and tells her to give it a rest. Sami sasses Mommy, "But Bonnie and Clyde won't tell me what they are up to." Nicole decides it's time to go. She leaves.

EJ smirks, "I found your temper tantrum amusing. It warms my heart to see that you're jealous." Sami protests.

John breaks out the champagne to celebrate EJ's visa renewal. Sami says now that this has happened she can get the annulment she has been dying for. She huffs out of the room.

EJ grins from ear to ear, "She likes me. She really likes me."

John and Marlena are alone. Marlena wants to know what the sly little smile on John's face is all about. John says he was thinking about how hot they must've been together.

"Something like that," says Marlena.

John moves in, "You mean something like this?" He tangles his cigar in Marlena's hair. Ooh. I never realized hairspray was so flammable. "So where's that conference table when you need one," asks John, "Think you still got it Blondie?"

Marlena asks what prompted Sami to take the stroll down memory lane.

"Insomnia at first," says John, "Then we looked at the disc." Marlena asks to see it. John goes over to get it but finds it missing as Rolf looks on.

Chelsea drops Nick like sack of smelly trash. Heartbroken Nick says he can't deny the way he feels just because she feels differently. But he wants her to be happy with or without him. He sniffs and starts to walk off. Chelsea looks up at him, "Friends?" He turns and walks away in silence. Max and Stephanie join Chelsea. She tells them Nick and her are over.

"Lucky guy," says Max.

Ava has decided to stay at the Salem Inn. Abe doesn't think that's a good idea, "Steve and Kayla are there."

"Don't worry about them," says Ava, "I'm not going to bother them."

"I'm sure you'll be one big happy family," says Abe.

"Tell Bo to be careful," says Ava, "People who take on my daddy end up dead."

The goons report back to Martino, "Maybe we shouldn't have taken out the snitch and the doctor in one day."

"When did you grow a brain," asks Martino, "Keep your opinions to yourself. Now we gotta get my daughter where she belongs." He knows the cops will come for him, "If they step into my world, they will pay. I still owe Patch, so he's first. Then I gotta wipe that SOB cop that clocked me."

Blood oozes from Bo's pancreas as he wanders around his living room. Roman says, "I know how much you wanna get this guy Vitali, but you gotta leave him to Abe and me."

"All right," says Bo, "But you gotta get him before he gets somebody else."

All hope is not lost. It doesn't sound like the snoozer yesterday's(showing today) episode was. Well at least Sami, EJ, Nicole, Marlena, and John are featured. So, are they now redeeming Ava?? I liked Ava better as the psychotic sex-starved maniac instead of what she is now.

Prevuze is always the voice of wisdom. Too bad that the writers don’t get it.

John grins, "I understand we hooked up on a conference room table."

Marlena picks her jaw up off the floor, "It's not appropriate to say things like that."

"Half the town knew about it," says John.


It’s about time someone called Malena out on her holier than thou attitude. I’m liking Jawn better and better.

Daniel leaves and heads for Toys-R-Us to go trolling.

HOHOHOHO!!! Prevuze, that was a real keyboard drencher!!!!

Today’s pictures and captions are outstanding. The empty crib is true genius or is that snarkiness? With Prevuze, it’s all the same!!!

The cradle picture was truly inspired followed closely by the "yawn-jugal visits" with Lucas and the two great pics showing the further adventures of Shawn & Belle.

Leslie mentioned the icky plot line and I also loved the one right before that:

Daniel says he needs to be alone, like a gypsy. Chelsea thinks she could help with that and hang with him, like a leech. LOLOL

"We don't have any charges!"
"Your point," asks Bo.


Another prevuism right on target.

For my HUH? of the day:

Ava joins them. She wants the truth about her father.

She used to pull jobs for him. Knows about all his thugs. Threatens anyone who looks cross-eyed at her with the dire consequences of her father's wrath. What possible "truth" does she not know??

After zapping all the Dansea and the 20-something's scenes it looks like a pretty good 18 minutes of show to watch.

Prevuze comes through once again!!

Another Prevuze mark of excellence is when a Prevuism makes you create an image in your head. He tangles his cigar in Marlena's hair. "Ooh. I never realized hairspray was so flammable." So did anyone else picture Marlena and her flaming head screeching out of the mansion like Ghost Rider? HAHAHAHAHA

Poor Nick! I hope they get a real doll in there this summer that he can be paired with and let Olive Oyl stew with jealousy.

It would be nice if someone from Days could win an Emmy. I'm especially rooting for Thaao.

Funny Prevuze and pics today. Thanks!

What is ICKY is that in the year 2008 there are still some people who are so closed minded to think that a relationship between two consenting adults - regardless of the age difference - is wrong. It is in complete disrespect for the countless couples who have had successful relationships for YEARS despite a large age gap.

I expect snark here, and I enjoy it, but some comments are totally out of line and definitely in bad taste...especially all references to child molestation.

But thanks for the sneak peak...I look forward to seeing the episode when it airs.

Prevuze is such a judgemental place as far as daniel and chelsea goes. I love the fact that u supply us with the previews for the day but its closed minded pple like yourselves that dont let storylines develop to their full potential. Just like when Ej and Sami first started so many judgemental pple standing in their way as well. Did anyone ever stop to think of the fans that were for that couple and the constant bashing they had to put up with. No because they were only seeing things from their p.o.v.

Let's put it this way... have to tread lightly here... If this relationship were between Daniel and Stephanie (who in real life is younger than Chelsea), Prevuze would not have nearly so much "material" to work with. 'Nuff said.

Prevuze is committed to making snide remarks about virtually anything on DOOL. Accordingly, you may look forward to continued incessant bashing of the icky Dansea relationship.

Not as worried as I was. It was black for several minutes. I had already started to write the posting that said there was no show today.

The pics & captions were stellar today. And a double dose of Shelle makes my day!

Sami overhears and walks into the room. In a rare moment of truthfulness ...

Red Flag! Sami? Truthful? Her transformation has come over a long period of time, so I barely noticed. But surely, this cannot be the real Sami? Is it another imitator planted by Stefano? (Dramatic music here: da da da daaa!)

Don't all Prevuze readers know by now that nothing is sacred if it makes us laugh? And Daniel & Chelsea as a couple provide lots of Prevuze fodder -- and lessons for the kiddies, perhaps.

And I don't care HOW they have ever posed EJ. He is s-e-x-y! I just want him to get screen time.

For those of you jumping on us "ppl" who are having fun with Dansea, please note the last few postings in yesterday's comments.

While the age difference IS fodder for funny jokes, many of us really object to Dansea not because Chelsea is too young for Dr. Dan, but because she seems too immature.

Better character development would have been a real help here. But, what am I saying? DOOL? Decent character development?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Dear Anonymous:

I think you’re missing the point. The real “ick factor” is that a doctor is hitting on his patient. Chelsea has an obvious crush on her surgeon. He recognizes that fact and acts on it. If I had been Kate, I certainly would not be encouraging it. Instead, I would have been complaining to TPTB at the hospital. If that didn’t get someone’s attention, I would be on the phone to the AMA. Would you want your doctor or dentist pulling you into a lip lock? Better yet, would you want a medical professional diving in on your daughter? For the me, the age gap is creepy because it makes the doctor’s actions seem so predatory.

Like it's been said before Anonymous. Chelsea seems to be too immature, and although I never thought about it Prevuze if right; if this was Daniel and Stephanie then I don't think I would even have a problem.

And yes, his actions do seem predatory to me as well. He reminds of a teacher reciprocating the feelings of a schoolgirl crush.

I see nothing in Chelsea that makes the good doctor swoon. What do they have in common other than their hormones? Maybe he likes to talk about MySpace and perhaps she wants to talk politics over lunch. (I don't know what adults do. haha) *shrugs*


She used to pull jobs for him. Knows about all his thugs. Threatens anyone who looks cross-eyed at her with the dire consequences of her father's wrath. What possible "truth" does she not know??

I wondered the same thing. I think she wants to know whether her father is a heartless murderer who placed her under the meds himself. She could have thought of him like EJ thought of Stefano; "My father is not an evil man, he just makes his enemies rightfully suffer."

Poor Nick, this storyline sucks.

12:22 PM  
Blogger Brendamouse said...

Maybe Nick should go for Morgan now. Or better yet, he can become Kate's boytoy and finish up that triumviate he was working on.

Nicole does not disappoint does she? An unrepentant ho with no standards or morals. Gotta' like a girl that's true to herself.

Did Kayla ever give Patch hell about his little bedroom romp with Ava? He'd be needing a patch for the other eye if I had caught him.

I agree that the ick factor is maturity, not age. She just looks so darn gangly too, like a newborn colt.

I think it's very telling that on prevuze there are people here who see a storyline when it's wrecked with problems. We watch Days and love to snark but we are also discriminating viewers who are not always going to support every pairing the show tries to force down our throats.

Just because RM and SC are good actors who are pretty does not mean they need to be in a story together. Also, the way the story was set up, it was fraught with many problems (Chelsea looking like jailbait one of them). I know some people out there are liking the pairing of Chan but in my experience people will ship anything and Daniel is such a new character there is no reason to go down this road when they are plenty of other women he could be with (while RM has had plenty of chemistry with Blake so why ruin that?) There was such great potential when they hired SC to be on this how, but they are completely wasting him.

And wasting Blake Berris I might add. Not just in a story with Chick but apparently they gave his brains to Max (oh the madness!)

the least they could do is recast Dr. Daniel with a hunkier actor.
