Perfectly Twisted

Daniel meets Chelsea at the pub. He gushes over her new role as Occupational Therapist Trainee Who Hasn't Done Squat Yet But Is One Step Away From Being The Department Head. She thinks that makes her sound important. "That is important," says Daniel, "If you don't know anything about health care. I know you will rock the department... because of the rocks in your head."

She tells him she had an awesome day working with the kids. "By the way," says Daniel, "These children you're giving occupational therapy to - what are their occupations?" Speaking of children, Chelsea says she's OK with the whole 'not being able to have kids thing.' She vows to have kids in her life at some point. So does Daniel, "especially if we get together." She asks about Bo and Victor, "How are my dad and grandpa? They're OK right?"

"Right," says Daniel, "If you don't need a pancreas or a functioning brain."

Abe tells his assistant, "There is something off about that package and I want to know what it is."

Kate joins Phillip for dinner at the mansion. Phillip's says his digestive juices are carving a hole in his gut. "How long has it been since your digestive juices attacked your head," asks Kate, "Don't worry. The recording is gone."

Even though Bo cleaned up the mess, Phillip is still worried, "I can't make this about me right now."

Bo hugs his little Sugar Bear as Caroline serves his dinner. Ciara comes up to him and grabs the teddy from his arms, "It's my Sugar Bear." Caroline sends her off to play with her Ginny doll. Bo asks her to leave Sugar Bear. After Ciara goes, Bo and Caroline both say they are worried about Victor. Caroline asks Bo, "Did something happen between you and Victor?"

"Yes," says Bo, "I sat there in his room and stared at the walls and Victor vegetated."

The Orient Express huffs and puffs down the track. For a train called the "Express," it sure doesn't get anywhere. Max and Stephanie snuggle. Max sneaks out of bed. For what happens next, read Saturday's episode of Prevuze.

Daniel tells Chelsea he thinks Bo is stressed out about something, "Victor, however, is having no stress at all. Vegetables don't have stress." Daniel thinks Phillip and Bo should just chill out around Victor. Chelsea says she will talk to Bo about that. She says she has to head home. She invites him for dinner and assures him Bo will be cool about it. Daniel accepts.

Caroline wants to know what's going on with Victor and Bo. Bo says after OMB, the thought of having to bury his biological father is too much to deal with right now. Caroline assures him Victor will pull through, "My grandfather used to say, 'Pain is like a dog. You gotta let it out and walk it, or someday it will chew up the couch.'" Bo makes a mental note to find out what sanitarium Caroline's grandfather was in and get her a reservation there as quickly as possible.

Lexie joins Abe with a list of possible therapies for Theo. Abe worries with all the therapy Theo won't have time to be a kid. "That's OK," says Lexie, "on this show they'll SORAS his butt so fast he'll be in college next year." Lexie thinks Abe seems hesitant. He says he's worried about the expense, and Theo's financial future, not to mention his own.

"How much," asks Abe, "Hit me with a figure." Lexie doesn't have a figure handy, so she clobbers him with her purse. Then she tells him Theo's therapy will cost 1-2 thousand per month, on top of the insurance deductible.

"It's a good thing you're Chief of Staph," says Abe, "We couldn't do it on what I earn."

Lexie tells him not to count on it, "The hospital has a plan where management pays you what you're worth. I'm comping them. Maybe we could dip into his college fund."

Abe dips into his drawer instead and pulls out a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Chelsea comes in and finds Ciara, "Hi, honey, do you know where my little sister is?"

"That depends," says Ciara, "Did you drive over here in your SUV?"

"No," says Chelsea.

"In that case," says Ciara, "I'm right here." They are too late for dinner, but Caroline says she will steam up some leftovers. Let's hope Chelsea and Daniel don't steam up anything while they are waiting. Everyone has an uncomfortable moment. Bo tells them Hope is getting some overtime in, "In fact, overtime is all she works these days, since she's never in on her regular shift." Talk turns to Victor and his condition. Bo goes to make a phone call. Daniel remembers he doesn't have his phone and he's on call, so he goes out into the living room. He and Bo have a staredown.

Kate insists Bo knows what he is doing. Phillip tells her she has no idea what he is capable of. Kate knows he's not capable of murder. He tells her he's done things she wouldn't be proud of. Kate wants to know what. Phillip clams up and tells her she'll find out soon enough. He says whatever he did, he did it for the family. He's guilt-ridden over what Bo did. Kate tells him to stop. Phillip says, "Bo is protecting me at the risk of his name, his reputation, his family and their future. How in the hell am I supposed to live with that?"

"I wouldn't get too worked up over it," says Kate, "Especially since Bo isn't risking anything of value."

Caroline tells Chelsea Bo and Daniel look pretty serious out there.

Daniel lectures Bo about stressing Victor. "And don't stress yourself, either, or I'll put you back in the hospital and lock you in a room with a 'Do Not Disturb' sign. My patients my rules."

"In that case," says Bo, "My daughter, my rules."

Stephanie dozes. She stirs and halfway opens her eyes. Max is there in bed with her. She opens her eyes a little more.


It's not Max; it's some strange guy. She screams for Max and flashes back to Ford raping her. Mr. Straneguy waxes on about Marseilles and Paris and what wonderful and romantic cities they are. Stephanie whimpers and reaches into her purse.

Bo insists he's doing fine. Daniel tells him he needs to take it easy. Before they can bore us to death with the conversation (oops, too late) Daniel gets a call. Chelsea comes out and Bo tells her Daniel is an overly concerned doctor. Daniel hangs up and tells them he received a report that every time Bo and Phillip go into Victor's room, his blood pressure skyrockets, "No more visitors."

Phillip and Kate argue. Morgan arrives. Phillip tells Kate he invited her.

Lexie repeats, "College... I can't think that far ahead. That would require thinking." Abe decides they will find a way. He gets a call, "OK. Shoot me a fax immediately!" He hears the sound of a gunshot on the other end. Abe hangs up and tells Lexie they just got a break in the Paul Hollingsworth case.

Kate decides it's time to go. She leaves. Both Phillip and Morgan are stressed about their fathers. Morgan says there is no news about Paul. She doesn't know what might have happened to him.

Chelsea fills Bo, Caroline and Daniel in on her new job. Daniel decides it's time to go. He has to look at an apartment. He invites Chelsea. She says she will help Bo and Caroline clean up and call him and meet him. Daniel leaves. Bo goes to tend to Ciara. Chelsea asks Caroline what's wrong with Bo. "I'll have to give you the Reader's Digest version," says Caroline, "It's only a one hour show."

Stephanie grabs mace out of her purse and points it at the intruder. The guy asks, "What's that?"

"Por les occasions ceci," says Stephanie.

The creep leaves, "A bientot j'espere."

Kate finds Daniel looking over his potential apartment. "Location, location, location," says Kate, "And timing is everything."

"How does it make you feel," asks Daniel.

"What matters is how it makes you feel," says Kate.

Daniel gives Kate the once-over, "It's an amazing view."

Kate thinks Chelsea will like it, because he is there, "It's perfect."

"Perfectly twisted," says Daniel.

Kate says, "You are a good man; you will make the right decision."

"If I were a good man I wouldn't be in this position," says Daniel.

Chelsea and Caroline obsess over what's bugging Bo. Caroline thinks Daniel is staying in Salem because of her. Chelsea hopes so, but wishes Bo were more supportive. "Bo loves you with his entire heart," says Caroline, "but not his whole pancreas."

Morgan gets a call from the Salem PD. Abe asks her to come down to the station to talk about new information about the case. She asks Phillip to come with her. Phillip is all too happy to oblige.

The Orient Express roars past the same spot it has gone by the last five times we saw it. Max comes back in with coffee, juice, fruit and croissants. He asks if anything exciting happened while he was gone. Stephanie tells him no and rambles through all the boring things that happened. But then she comes clean and tells him a pickpocket tried to steal her wallet. She shows max the mace and says that's how she stopped him. Max thinks they need to report him. Stephanie already did. She thanks him for breakfast and gives him a hot kiss.

"Next time," says Max, "I'll bring you a full meal." He says he's excited about the prospect of meeting his sister. "Plus I have the love of my life with me."

Kate asks, "It was a waste of time, wasn't it?"

"I think it was a hell of a time," says Daniel. He promises he will not hurt Chelsea, "She can never know what happened."

"My lips are sealed," says Kate.

"With collagen," says Daniel.

Bo comes down and Caroline tells him Chelsea went to meet Daniel. She tells Bo to keep an open mind about their relationship. Bo gets a call, "What's up? When? OK. Thanks for filling me in." He hangs up and tells Caroline, "Paul Hollingsworth - They found something."

Morgan arrives at Abe's office. Abe sets Morgan up for the bad news, "I don't want you to get upset, but we found something. It could be good news or bad news - we found your father's jacket... floating in the river."

"That's bad news," says Morgan, "It will cost a fortune to clean."


You can watch the previews later today on our PREVUZE II website. Prevuze II should be up no later than noon, Eastern Time.

”I know you will rock the department... because of the rocks in your head."
Maybe Chelsea can become the head of the hospital’s Geology Department.
"How are my dad and grandpa? They're OK right?"

"Right," says Daniel, "If you don't need a pancreas or a functioning brain."

With Chan zeroed in on the Prevuze radar screen, they’ve replaced Shelle as DOOL’s pathetic sitting ducks. 
"How does it make you feel," asks Daniel.

"What matters is how it makes you feel," says Kate.

Daniel gives Kate the once-over, "It's an amazing view."

I think I’m going to hurl.
"My lips are sealed," says Kate.

"With collagen," says Daniel.

I’ve often wondered if a hot and heavy make-out session would cause those lips to explode.
Thank goodness this episode provided tons of fodder for Prevuzisms because I sure won’t be watching it.  I loved Patch’s Star Trek themed sexcapade excuse to Kayla.  May Prevuze live long and prosper!!

Now instead of watching the - ahem - riveting action aboard the train I'm gonna be looking at the repetitive fake scenery outside the window. HAHAHAHA

Well, duh! The hospital staff finally gets a clue these people are going in and upsetting Victor? It's a wonder their visits haven't done the poor guy in already.

I LOL over "My lips are sealed," says Kate. "With Collagen," says Daniel."

And "That's OK", says Lexie, "On this show they'll SORAS his butt so fast he'll be in college next year." probably with Ciara, Johnny and Allie.

Thanks for the laughs to get us thru a dreaded Monday morning, Prevuze! :D

Great pictures - Gnome Robbins, Marlena the Harpy, Victor in Caroline-induced hell, Patch's far-out excuse!

[Abe] gets a call, "OK. Shoot me……

The rest of that sentence continued on the next line and before I got to the …a fax immediately! part I was thinking to myself, "Yeah, shoot ALL of us and put us out of our misery!” What a lame episode.

"She can never know what happened." "My lips are sealed," says Kate. "With collagen," says Daniel.

LOLOL A true classic Prevuism! Of course, the way these people keep talking about it – in public – every time they are together, the secret won’t be secret much longer.

I can't believe it's Monday again already. At least Prevuze is on top of things!

I think Kayla would actually buy that excuse of Patch's!

Gotta love the Guy Manual. Sounds like an episode worth missing though. Stephanie and Uncle Max and Chan. No wonder the ratings are in the tank.

I personally hope Chelsea does find out about Kate and Daniel having casual sex BEFORE they end up having sex, so she can see him for the shallow man he really is, not to mention deviant pedophile.

Okay, seriously now. In what way could Abe possibly construe Hollingsworth's jacket floating in the water as good news?

Secondly, it seems that Chelsea is at least 21 at this point and so it's not quite pedophilia. For that, just check out CBS' "Swingtown" where you have a high school student getting down with the teacher. Now that's just wrong.

I saw on future spoilers where Bart is being brought back to life or else an evil twin brother. I hope it's the original Bart since he was so comical. Wouldn't it be funny if it's been Bart who has been bringing all those dead people back to life using that black onyx ring of Stefano's? We are being led to think it's Rolf's genius doing it. Since Stefano wakes up soon, maybe it will be Bart who revives him from Marlena's injection induced catatonia?

With Daniel being interested in Kate, does that make him a geriactriphiliac? lol

Since he's supposed to be about 45 and obviously like the young girls and the older ladies?

Maybe Marlena brings Stefano back in hopes that will bring back the old John??

But probably not.

Tomorrow sounds like a snoozefestival.

Except for the Dan/Kate "I can't quit you" stuff.

Love, love, love Harpy Time. I'll never hear that song the same again.

OK. I have a strangely probable idea. The disc containing the old John's memories is broken. This is true. Marlena is trying to get it fixed. Anybody ever fixed a broken record or CD? Isn't it true that the damaged section alters the quality a bit? Imagine if you will, they fix the disc. John is reprogrammed and gets his memory back. He and Marlena are alone. Marlena is talking to him and fluttering her false lashes. " John, my beloved, my darling, my love." Suddenly, John hits the scratch in the memory and momentarily turns into Charlie Callas flapping his arms, sticking out his tongue and going...MMMff. MMMMfff.... .
It's possible and would be totally hilarious, if you ask me.

I absolutely love, love, love the Guy Manual. I've seen it now with Philip, Lucas and Steve, and it's a flipping hoot! I hope to see more excerpts in the future. Keep up the great work!

Prevuze, dear, you should definitely write a book and call it the Guy's Manual. It would sell a lot of copies and make you a rich lady. You are one talented lady for sure.
