Hell To Pay

Salem Hospital! Destroying the human race one patient at a time.

Chloe comes into Lucas' room to see if she can slow his recovery. She does a good job of it. Chloe hands him a Redbook and two car magazines. Lucas leafs through the Redbook. She offers him cashews and pistachios. Lucas says, "I'll take the pistachios since cashews give me a rash."

"But," whines Chloe, "You haven't eaten any and you've got a rash."

"You're in the room," says Lucas.


Chloe fluffs his pillow. Lucas tells her he was beaten up in prison and she isn't responsible for his injuries.

"I know," says Chloe, "But..." An angelic choir backs her up as she continues, "I'll be here for you until you're back on your feet."

In walks the town gossip herself, already taking notes, "Well," says Maggie, "I wonder what Sami would have to say about that?"

EJ and Nicole discuss Trent. EJ mulls over the revelation that Trent told Nicole to stay away from him. Nicole thinks Trent is malicious and she doesn't know what he will do. Not only that Nicole thinks Victor will go off the wall when he finds out she is still married to Trent. EJ says, "It means a lot to me that you trust me enough to tell me the truth."

Nicole says, "The truth is I hated pushing you away."

Roman and Hope talk about the evidence in the Paul Hollingsworth case. Roman asks, "Now you did talk to Morgan about the evidence again, didn't you?"

"Yes."

"And again?"

"Yes."

"And again?"

"Yes."

"And again?"

"Yes."


Hope knows Morgan didn't pull anything more out of the evidence bag. She says she will talk to Harry and find out where the mysterious email originated.

Phillip beeps. Bo joins him. Bo's beeping sounds more realistic. He tells Phillip about the mystery email. Phillip isn't surprised. He says he got a note saying whoever it is knows his secret. "This smells like a setup," says Bo.

"How do you know," asks Phillip.

"I got another mysterious email," says Bo, "It said, 'This is a setup. Somebody knows what I did. They're after us. Both of us."

Harry tells Hope and Roman he traced the email to the Kiriakis mansion. Roman thinks it's bogus, "Phillip is too smart for that. He wouldn't send an anonymous email from his own computer."

"What about Pookie," asks Hope.

Harry gets and epiphany and does some more key clicking. He announces the email came from the Java Café.

"Looks like a setup," says Hope.

"How do you know," asks Roman.

"I got another mysterious email," says Hope, "It said, 'This is a setup.

Roman takes Hope aside. He says he thinks John is in this way over his head. "I hope he's not the only one," says Hope. She makes a call as she heads for the Java Café.

Bo and Phillip both think John is behind this. Bo says it helped to find out Phillip is innocent, since what he did was so wrong. "You're a Kiriakis," says Phillip.

"Then why ain't I rich," asks Bo. Bo says he loves the parents who brought him up and he spent years denying he has Kiriakis blood, but now he thinks it might be more convenient to join the dark side. He says when Phillip visited him was the first time their relationship felt real, "The other times, it just felt like another one of your fake body parts." Phillip says he will never forget what Bo did for him.

Maggie giggles with delight, "I know it's none of my business, but I don't think Sami will be happy if she walks in here and sees Chloe attending to your every need." Lucas tells her Sami knows Chloe is there. "REALLY," says Maggie, "Well, I was just trying to prevent trouble, and also trying to prevent someone else from getting the scoop on this before me." Maggie walks over and gives him a hug.

"YEEEOOOWWWWWCCCHH!" Apparently the thugs in prison didn't do as good a job as Maggie of working Lucas over. She gives him a batch of Alice's donuts and says Alice sends her love.

"Good," says Lucas, "Because I couldn't survive another hug." Chloe goes for coffee.

Maggie swoops in for more details. She can't believe Sami left him alone with Chloe. Lucas tells her it's time he and Sami took a little break from each other. Maggie can't believe it. A snort of laughing gas couldn't make her more giddy. Lucas says it's draining to love Sami because of her mood swings.

Maggie asks, "And Chloe is the answer?" Maggie has a point. Lucas dunno. Maggie says she heard what happened between Chloe and him at the Salem Inn. Lucas wonders how. "I have my spies all over town," says Maggie. She tells him just because he got caught with another woman doesn't mean he ought to throw everything away with Sami.

"Chloe is different than Sami," says Lucas, "I need something different right now. I figure whining is a nice change of pace from all the yelling."

Nicole would love to make her relationship with EJ to work, but they couldn't be seen on a date with Trent around. EJ reassures her, "We'll put our heads together and it will all be fine. If you dig deep enough, you'll find skeleton's in anyone's closet." Nicole tells him she knows about one of Trent's skeletons and if you count her marriage, that's two. "What have you got," says EJ.

"Max Brady is Trent's biological son."

The guy at the Java Café tells Hope he can't tell who sent emails, but he could review the security footage and see who was there. Hope gives him the time frame and he goes to work. Doug meets Hope and hands over her usual, a low fat, double shot, super-foam latte. She thanks him for meeting her there. Hope has a question for him, "Would you break the law to protect a family member?" Doug chuckles.

Phillip beeps. Bo tells him he takes responsibility for his own actions. Phillip insists John is behind this but doesn't know how he knows about the missing evidence. "There has to be a trail," says Bo, "We just have to find it."

"You're a Salem cop," says Phillip, "That means we don't have any hope at all of finding a trail. But whatever happens, I got your back."

Bo says, "It's the rest of me I'm worried about. I meant what I said, too." Bo stammers around and starts to tell him something, but chickens out and leaves.

Doug says it would depend on the circumstances. Doug reminds her in his past he broke the law a lot, but not to protect family members. Thinking it over he says he probably would break the law to protect a family member, "The problem is, there's hell to pay either way." Doug presses for more details. Hope insists she's not in trouble and can't say. Doug asks, "Is it Bo?" Hope chokes on her super-foam. She sees the manager come back and tells Doug she has to go.

Nicole tells EJ Max has taken off and Trent wants her to find out what he is up to. She says Max is in France but she doesn't know what he is doing there. EJ says the more they know about Trent the quicker they can get him off Nicole's back. He tells her he will help, but not as her lawyer.

Maggie makes a pitch for Lucas being with Sami. Lucas says he can't handle it right now. Maggie says she knows just the place where Lucas can go to recharge his batteries.

Hope calls Roman and says she is looking at the security video at the time the email was sent, and it's a picture of Ava Vitali sending it. Roman thinks that's good information but knows they can't prove she sent it. Hope tells him she has to catch up with Bo and hangs up, "Oh, God, Brady, what have you done?"

Morgan comes in to see Phillip. She tells him she feels terrible. She says she went over there to confront John and get the truth. She says she's becoming a nervous wreck, "I feel like I'm having a nervous breakdown."

"You sound more like Lucas' kind of girl," says Phillip.

Phillip vows to find her father, "You've probably heard stories of people who get revelations while they are in a coma."

Morgan rattles on, "Yes I've heard about that kind of thing. One time at band camp...".

"Not that," says Phillip. He takes her hand, "I heard everything you said."

Hope comes back and finds Bo at home, "Did you pick up Ciara?"

"I didn't have to," says Bo, "She's old enough to drive herself now."

Hope walks over and finds a postcard from Shawn and Belle on the table, "It's from Fiji. Claire has learned to fish, Shawn has cut his beard and Belle has almost learned which is port and which is starboard."

"I wish I were in Fiji right now," says Bo, "It happens to me every time you walk into the room." Bo tells her Phillip is doing well.

She tells him she went to the Java Café and discovered Ava may have sent the mystery email, "It's that email about the missing evidence that has everyone thrown for a loop. But you know all about that, don't you, Brady?"

Nicole gets off the phone with her friend Lisa, who works at the pub and found out that Stephanie followed Max to Europe. EJ thinks that's great information. He says he can call her and she will tell them everything they need to know. Nicole gets all gushy over the fact that EJ really is going to help her.

Maggie gives Lucas the key to the Horton cabin, "That will be the perfect place to recuperate. You can go up there and commune with nature and TP every tree around." He thanks her. They share a tender moment talking about imprisonment. Lucas says all he could think about was Allie and what would happen to her. Maggie begs him to think long and hard about his feelings for Sami. Lucas promises. Chloe listens as Maggie talks about Smith Island.

Phillip says, "You said that you loved me."

Morgan makes excuses, "Well, I thought you were going to die. I thought maybe I could work my way into the will."

Phillip thinks it's wonderful. He pulls her down to tell her something. Phillip whispers. Morgan kisses him.

EJ wonders why Nicole has gone all girlie on him all of a sudden. She says she can't believe he's willing to help her, "No one has ever been this nice to me."

"It's my pleasure," says EJ, "Start getting used to it, young lady." Zero out of two ain't bad.

Chloe knocks and slips into Lucas' room. Maggie decides this is a good time to leave. This happens to Chloe a lot. Lucas tells her he's going to spend some time on Smith Island when he gets released.

Hope demands Bo tell her the truth, "What do you know about the missing evidence? Did you have anything to do with it."

Bo tells her he wanted to keep her out of it but admits tampering with the evidence to protect Phillip. Hope gasps, "My God, Brady, what have you done?"

Exactly, where is that rash? Enquiring minds need to know.

EJ says, "It means a lot to me that you trust me enough to tell me the truth."

Nicole says, "The truth is I hated pushing you away."


Ejamis pass out the barf bags.

"I feel like I'm having a nervous breakdown."

"You sound more like Lucas' kind of girl," says Phillip.


Isn’t that the truth. Lucas must have lots of experience handing over tissues.

They share a tender moment talking about imprisonment. Lucas says all he could think about was Allie and what would happen to her.

OK, just where is the Horton cabin? Is it in another state, another county, or down the street? Does it have indoor plumbing or is it outhouses for everyone? If all Lucas could think about in prison is being with his daughter, why is Maggie sending him off to play with squirrels and hug a tree? Wouldn’t he rather be bonding with his daughter? Hmm, maybe Maggie has given him the golden opportunity to bond with Chloe. Why would he want to waste two seconds thinking about Sami?

After viewing the blubber fest in Prevuze II, Old Faithful and Old Unfaithful is right on target. I wonder how long it’s going to take before the writers give Sami her mojo back. Thanks again, Prevuze, for another snark filled recap of Daze. Those snarky comments are going to help me get through viewing this pap.

Ah Leslie me darlin'. Just as the Scottish folk have their Brigadoon, the magical place that only appears out of the Scottish mist every 100 years; The good people of Salem have Smith Island and the Horton Cabin.
Legend has it, it rises out of the dark depths of the Salem river every 5-7 years, whenever there's a supercouple about to be put back together and relive their entire romantic history, or a new supercouple is about to be born, and Smith Island is where the labor (and yes it's usually long and painful) takes place.


Harry tells Hope and Roman he traced the email to the Kiriakis mansion. Roman thinks it's bogus, "Phillip is too smart for that. He wouldn't send an anonymous email from his own computer."

Harry gets and epiphany and does some more key clicking. He announces the email came from the Java Café.


Oh come on! Harry is supposed to be the Salem PD's tech expert? And he can't trace an email IP?
Yeah.


Note to Prevuze:
So now that Diana Highly is gone again, what say you and I send in our resumes? Hey we can't do any worse than the last 3 head writers have done. What does NBC have to lose?

Bulldog, Shelbydee - great pictures. Glad you are taking up some of the slack from Prevuze.

Prevuze - loved the old faithful picture. Is that from your vacation?

Also got a kick out of the 'mysterious e-mails' that clued in the cops and this little one-liner:

Phillip beeps. Bo joins him. Bo's beeping sounds more realistic.

Bo says it helped to find out Phillip is innocent

Uh, did I zap through something? Since when did Bo decide Philip was innocent? Since Bo destroyed the evidence that might prove otherwise?

"Chloe is different than Sami," says Lucas, "I need something different right now. I figure whining is a nice change of pace from all the yelling."

As they say, Prevuze has a point. LOLOL

Chloe listens as Maggie talks about Smith Island.

OMG – I can see it now. Typical DAZE. Lucas will go to the Horton cabin. Chloe will follow. Maggie will talk Sami into going (thinking it will get Lumi back together) and Sami will walk into a cozy little scene between Chluc.

You gave a great description of the pivotal role the island and Horton cabin plays, Deb. It must be magical. Even when no one has been there for years, it is spotlessly clean and completely stocked for company. HAHAHA

I don't know if the folks at Daze could stand the pressure of being up for a Pulitzer and an Emmy at the same time.

I think that Deb and Prevuze would make a great writing team for DOOL. Much better than what has been. The two of them could save DOOL a lot of money on writer's salaries.

OK, can someone who's a tech expert please tell me - is it even possible to send an e-mail - anonymously - thru someone else's house??

If Hope wasn't so busy nagging Bo and Morgan she could've gotten the Luchami scoop before Maggs.

And those poor Fijians. We should send emergency relief because they probably need it by now.

LOL over "Did you pick up Ciara?" "I didn't have to," says Bo, "She's old enough to drive herself now."

Prevuze, you've saved us again! And again, and again and again... :D

Great assessment of the Horton Cabin, too funny, and so true!

They definatley needed to mix up the couples on DOOL, but I am not sure how long any of these will last.
And when is Sami going to get another paternity test done on the twins???

Short answer, yes and no. If you want to avoid a migraine you may stop reading here.

For the most part, they track your identity through your IP address. So Ava was smart enough to go to another address to send the email. No, it's not possible to direct it through a second IP address like the Kiriakis mansion without sending it there. There are many ways to mask your IP address like going to another location or using a proxy server. To be even safer, Ava should have used a proxy from the Java Cafe. Even at that a proxy server only makes you harder to find. So if you are doing innocuous things behind a proxy, they probably won't find you. If you are the Unibomber usning a proxy, they can get to you if they dig deep enough - mainly by issuing a subponea for the proxy server company's records.

There is one wicked-bad proxy out there that is almost 100% safe if you want to hide your identity. It's called The Onion Ring (TOR for short) and it works by literally bouncing your message all over the world before it gets to its final destination.

Some programs are also starting to track something known as a MAC address which is unique to your computer (or cell phone or whatever). So if they find an email that came in through a proxy from Singapore but has your machine's MAC address, you're nailed.

I know. TMI.

And when is Sami going to get another paternity test done on the twins???

Soon because the results will come back just about the time she finds Lucas and Chloe together at the Horton cabin...in fact, I bet that's why she goes out to the cabin in the first place - to tell Lucas the news.

And just to complicate matters further, Chloe will end up pregnant from her and Lucas's little hook-up at the cabin (or in the elevator - take your pick) thus ensuring we have months of love triangle back and forth between Lucas, Chloe and Sami.

And in the end, the baby will be 'still-born', Sami and Lucas will end up together, and Sefano will take the 'still-born' baby and raise it as a Dimera to come back and haunt Salem in about 5 years when the baby is SORASed to his late teens/early 20's.

What do you think? Have I been watching this show too long??? :-)

I'm just wondering if DOOL is going to write in Alison's pregnancy. The baby could wind up being EJ's (from when Lucas walked in on EJ and Sami), and then she'll be tied to him even though Johnny isn't his. As wingnut75 said, Chloe will wind up preggers with Lucas's baby, and then wind up with a quadrangle between EJ, Sami, Lucas and Chloe that would last forever...I'd love to see EJ and Sami together as well as Lucas and Chloe. Give these characters somewhat of a normal life. Well, at least as normal as life can be on ANY soap...

Gnerdo - not at all TMI. Thanks for the info. I never would've known all of that - - and probably neither would Jawn or Ava. HAHAHA

Wingnut - loved the prediction. It sounds pretty much right-on of what's going to happen! :D
