A Liar And A Disgrace

Bo and Hope ride through the countryside. The carriage turns into a pumpkin and makes a mess. Flashback to New Orleans. The carriage doesn't turn into a pumpkin but the horse makes a mess.

EJ rushes in and asks Lexie what this little meeting is about. Tony runs in. "The meeting is about Stefano," says Lexie, "I want to know what's going on."

"It's called a stroke," says Tony, "We figured you might have heard about it in some of your advanced medical classes."

Marlena's phone rings. She looks and sees it's a message from John. The stalker stalks. He peers through a crack in the door and uses a fork lift to bring in his huge hypodermic needle.

John stuffs a pillow over Stefano's face, "You stole my life, you bastard. Now I'm taking over." Beep... beep... beep... beepbeepbeep.

Bo escorts Hope into the church. She tells him he's taken her breath away.

"Sorry," says Bo, "I shouldn't have had that breakfast burrito this morning."

"It's like New Orleans all over again," says Hope.

"Thats where you first became mine," says Bo, "and I knew we'd be together for all the Days Of Our Lives." Hope feels like it's a dream. Bo takes a knee, "Hope Williams Brady... Will you marry me... again ?

Silence... silence... silence...

"Hello... I'm on my knee here."

"You know I will," cries Hope, "I can't tell you how much this means to me." Bo stands up and takes Hope into the sanctuary where the whole gang waits.

Bo thanks everyone for stopping by. "We couldn't renew our vows without our friends and the people who love us surrounding us. Or any of you, either. Or the presents we know you have brought. Shawn and Belle couldn't be here today, but they sent a letter, written by Claire, of course."

Bo goes on to read the letter, "We're having a great time. We've almost found our way out of Salem Harbor, after recovering from a couple of minor mishaps and sinking the boat twice." Bo talks about almost losing his life and how much he now appreciates what he has, "We are here to celebrate what the two of us have together. Since we have done this before I've asked Ma and Doug to officiate, and avoided having to pay a real priest."

John suffocates Stefano. He gets a call, releases the pressure on the pillow and says, "I'll be right back."

It's Marlena returning his message, "We need to talk." John tells her Ava is gone. The stalker stalks. John accuses her of turning Ava in.

Doug presides. Back in the day he knew Bo was too much of a rebel for Hope. He talks about Bo kidnapping Hope and whisking her away on a stolen cop motorcycle, "That cop hung on for dear life. There is a heck of a lot more to this guy than I ever dreamed possible."

Doug introduces Patch and Kayla. They come up to tell the tale of Bo and Hope Brady. Patch goes back to the beginning ― Oak Alley plantation in New Orleans. The flashback provides a real zappertunity.

Lexie says, "I should be at St. Luke's. Why the change of heart? I want to know what is going on with the two of you, and I want to know now."

Patch and Kayla talk about Bo and Hope finally tying the knot for real in their English royal wedding.

Ciara chimes in, "Mommy, did you look like a princess?"

"Yes I did," says Hope.

"Did the Princess die," asks Ciara.

"No, honey, why would you ask that?"

"Because now she looks like a skeleton."


Kayla reminds us after that wedding, Bo and Hope sailed off into the sunset. We have another flashback of the boat sailing away from Salem. Little Shawn sinks the boat halfway out of the harbor.

"Then," says Kayla, "to everybody's horror, you returned and circumstances drove you apart. We have a flashback of their wedding in the maternity ward.

"That was the day Zack was born," says Hope, "He's still with us in our hearts."

"CENSORED," says Bo.

We have another flashback to their Christmas Eve wedding. Hope gives Bo his ring, "This ring is a sign of my fidelity." When Bo stops laughing the ceremony continues.

Hope says, "I am profoundly grateful we have this chance to spend all the Days Of Our Lives together."

"I think the best is yet to come," says Kayla.

Bo says, "Kayla, you weren't supposed to hit the punch until the reception."

Tony says, "Let sleeping dogs lie. If father wakes up he will be furious."

Marlena tells John she felt she had to contact the authorities. The stalker stalks. She begs John not to do anything foolish.

Caroline reads a message from Alice that she and Tom recited every year on their anniversary.

"True love's the gift which God hath given,
To man alone beneath the heaven.
The silver link, the silver tie, which heart to heart, and mind to mind,
in body and in soul can find."


"That's beautiful," says Hope, "Did Tom write that? "

"No," says Doug, "In fact, Sir Walter Scott's family is suing DOOL for royalties since we've used it so much."

Doug asks them to restate their vows. Hope hasn't prepared anything. So she just does what she does best and nags Bo's butt off, "I look into your eyes and I still see the man I fell helplessly in love with when I was just a girl."

Prevuze

Hope continues, "You are the man who still makes my heart flutter."

"That's not me," says Bo, "That's a sign you're going into the final stages of anorexia."

"You have honesty and integrity," says Hope, "You're my hero. I know whatever lies ahead we'll be together. Maybe they'll even let us share the same jail cell." Kiss. "I love you Brady. I love you."

The stalker stalks. Marlena thinks she loses the connection, "John? Are you still there? Where are you?"

"I'm with Stefano," says John, "and he's completely at my mercy as I was at his. Don't worry. I won't do anything. There is something I have to do first. So he's safe for the moment." John hangs up and reinserts Stefano's breathing tube. He places the pillow on Stefano's face and leaves.

Bo says he gave a lot of thought to what he would say, but the same words kept coming back to him, "I still want only you and need only you, except for a few dalliances now and then. Your belief in me and your faith in me has made me the man I am today. But I guess I'll stick with you anyway."

Doug announces that they will now exchange wedding bands.

"I don't have mine any more," says Hope.

"Yes you do," says Bo. He opens a box revealing Hope's ring.

Lexie asks, "So you are saying since he will be angry we shouldn't wake him?" EJ and Tony suggest letting it happen naturally. Lexie leaves.

Marlena dresses. She stops, looks and draws a sharp breath.

Lexie rushes into the church.

Hope stares at her ring in disbelief, "How is it possible?"

"We'll get to that in a minute," says Bo, "Ladies first."

Hope says, "You know I don't have one for you." Ciara to the rescue.

Kayla turns and sees John walk by.

"This isn't your ring," says Hope.

Bo says, "It's the one Ma put on Pop's finger 50 years ago. It doubles as a beer bottle opener. It signifies a love that stood the test of time ― after all their years together, their marriage only produced one bastard child."

Bo tells Hope about her ring, "It's an exact replica of the one you fed to the sharks. It's made from the same cast by the same jeweler, who is now 106 years old. There are a couple of differences. First, this one has today's date engraved on it as well as the original date. Second, this one floats."

Doug and Caroline rush up. Doug says it has been their joy to share this ceremony.

Caroline prays, "Dear God, you are the spirit of love. Please continue to bless Bo and Hope... let me rephrase that, you can get started blessing Bo and Hope anytime now."

Doug now gives Bo permission to kiss the bride even though he sneaked in a few before.

EJ comes into Stefano's room, "Father, wake up. I need to speak to you again."

Tony comes in behind him, "So you know."

Marlena hyperventilates, "Stay away from me." The stalker raises his needle. "I'm warning you," says Marlena.

Tony and EJ come out of Stefano's room. "Why didn't you tell me you knew," asks Tony.

"Why didn't you tell me," asks EJ.

"Why did father lie to us," asks Tony. They go back in in to find out.

EJ says, "All right, Father, we know you're awake. What's your game? Father? Father? Bueller? "

Marlena picks up a letter opener, "Get out of my way or I will use this."

Julie gushes about how wonderful Doug was. They rush away with Ciara to get ready for the reception.

Bo thanks everyone, "And I want to invite you all over to our house for a New Orleans style BBQ."

"Doug and Julie sure will be surprised when no one shows up at their house," says Caroline.

Brad Baker, crack reporter for the Salem Sleazebucket shows up, "I'd like a quote from detective Bo Brady."

"OMG," gasps Hope, "You even arranged newspaper coverage."

"I didn't arrange this," says Bo.

Reporter Brad continues, "I'd like to know how Detective Brady sleeps at night knowing he's a liar and a disgrace to the police department."

John watches as Marlena quivers. "Don't underestimate me," she says, "I will stab you!" The dingbat throws the letter opener at her assailant. It bounces off his hoodie and he rushes her. He wrestles her down on the bed. Marlena screams and struggles. The stalker raises his needle.

We are delighted to announce that this was a very auspicious episode. The phrase, "For all the days of our lives" was used a record 23 times.

Not a lot of pictures today, but Bulldog's ingenious interpretation of the NBC crap they slap over the screen and Prevuze pic of a part of Hope's vows were stellar!

As always, the censored link was deliciously disgusting. And just too many Prevuisms to mention. Although I'll mention some anyway.

"Thats where you first became mine," says Bo, "and I knew we'd be together for all the Days Of Our Lives."

Except for when I married Carly and Billie and Princess Gina….

The flashback provides a real zappertunity.

Lord almighty! The entire wedding stuff is a zappertunity.

Hope continues, "You are the man who still makes my heart flutter." "That's not me," says Bo, "That's a sign you're going into the final stages of anorexia."

A few years ago, Kristen was really looking terrible – so thin. Then she put on a little weight and had been looking better the last year or so. Looks like she’s back on the no eating kick and it isn’t becoming.

A late, but great Prevuze. Thanks!

Oh, this is not good.  I lost it with that one.  When I read Prevuze, I’m usually the only one in the office.  How do I explain the tears running down my face…the ones that accompany my stifled laughter?  Lord knows it can’t have anything to do with my job.
 
Oh, Prevuze, I did it again.  I just read the censored link!!!
 
Hope continues, "You are the man who still makes my heart flutter."

"That's not me," says Bo, "That's a sign you're going into the final stages of anorexia."

 
Quick!!  Bring her a piece of wedding cake!!
 
How come Marlena wasn’t invited to the redux wedding?  Was she at the first six and didn’t feel like buying a present or was it that she didn’t want to be a part of some stinkin’ filler garbage?
 
Thanks of the stellar update!!

It is sad to see what has happened to Kristen. She was such a beautiful woman and now she does look like a walking skeleton. She's good proof that a woman looks better with a few curves, not angles.

I'm gonna watch every second of the sugary wedding mess because I want to see how many laughs I get from remembering all the great Prevuisms! Thank God I was sitting outside when I got to " That's a sign you're going into the final stages of anorexia." becaue I did a REAL spittake!!

Also, "After all their years together, their marriage only produced one bastard child."

Anyone think Marlena is actually going to get stabbed and won't be rescued? Anyone? "Bueller?"

Loved the censored link, too. A Prevuze definitely worth waiting for today!

Okay, one down, one to go -- I called the "Ho & Dope" wedding vow renewal a few weeks ago in the "questions DOOL never answered" weekend segment (or was it a Wimbledum filler segment?), even before Bo started hinting about his "surprise" for Hope. Just waiting for Steve & Kayla now. And of course, if NuJawn ever turns back into boring AwldJawn, we'll have to suffer through that one, too!!!

Oh, gosh, I just watched PREVUZE II. Marlena says "Don't underestimate me" and then proceeds to throw the letter opener at the stalker like a 3-year-old and run for the door like an old woman with her Depends down around her ankles! I'm thinking it would be pretty impossible to estimate any lower than that!!!!

I completely agree with Leslie's comments...I broke the cardinal Prevuze rule and was drinking coffee when I hit:

Ciara chimes in, "Mommy, did you look like a princess?"

"Yes I did," says Hope.

"Did the Princess die," asks Ciara.

"No, honey, why would you ask that?"

"Because now she looks like a skeleton."


No sooner had I completed cleaning up the coffee from my desktop (and the burning had stopped from shooting coffee out of my nose) than I clicked on the censored link with coffee in my mouth (you'd think I'd have learned the first time). What a mess!

Thank God I had learned by the time I got to:

"This isn't your ring," says Hope.

Bo says, "It's the one Ma put on Pop's finger 50 years ago. It doubles as a beer bottle opener. It signifies a love that stood the test of time ― after all their years together, their marriage only produced one bastard child."


Otherwise, I'd have been cleaning up my third mess of the morning.

Sounds like a truely zap-tastic episode of DROOL. Thanks for taking one for the team, Prevuze, and posting a recap so we all don't have to waste an hour of our lives to see the few Stephano/Jawn/Wench (a.k.a. Dr. Evans-Brady-Black-whomever else under the sun)/Stalker scenes the DROOL writers threw in to keep people remotely interested in the episode.

Hope feels like it's a dream. Bo takes a knee, "Hope Williams Brady... Will you marry me... again ?

Our gal in the audience screams:
SAY NO SAY NO!!!

Silence... silence... silence...

The audience chants;
SAY NO SAY NO SAY NO SAY NO SAY NO

"Hello... I'm on my knee here."

The chanting reaches a fever pitch
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

"You know I will," cries Hope, "I can't tell you how much this means to me." Bo stands up and takes Hope into the sanctuary where the whole gang waits.

The audience groans. Sounds of retching are heard between the sobs and wailing.

Once again DOOL renews it's commitment to "go green" with yet another recycled script.
What's next? John and Marlena get re-married? Sami "realizes" she really loves Austin? Steve will leave Kayla because he doesn't think he's "good enough" for her.

Sigh.

Does anyone think Marlena and John's storyline will ever be different, original or interesting again?

Not me.

All I can add is please stalker, just one quick airbubble in an artery and put us all out of our misery.

What exactly is the point of Marlena having a stalker? Is it so Jawn will bust in and save her and he will remarkable get his memory back? Please, I hope not. It's too much to ask that the writers actually have something good planned for Marlena.
Prevuze thanks for putting yourself through this. I appreciate it. Now, I dont' have to watch this garbage. You write a much better episode than the bozo's that are paid to do it.

PAINFULLY boring - DOOL has become such a horrid thing to watch. UGH - wedding vows renewal? Can anyone say "filler material"? Would have been better is Hope said no and they dragged that out a little.

Only 3 second worth watching was that BEYOND girlie toss of a letter opener Marleen did. A 3 year old could do better.

And I think that's probably Bart as the stalker...

Man, I am so bored of DOOL... NO spice, no life, no heat. At least get EJ and on of the ladies to heat up the screen for us!

James Scott (EJ) is getting married this summer so he'll likely be off-screen for a little while too.

Come ON writers, you can do better than this!

First off my thanks to Applecheeks for adding "deliciously disgusting" to my repertoire of fancy terms.

Oh I'm down for some more Sami/Austin stuff. Austin was so stupid... man... how do you get that stupid!???

I think the point of Marlena having a stalker is to show that John isn't such a bad guy after all and save her. He may be curt and prone to murdering comatose people but he comes through where it counts.

Don't reporters have more important things to do? There is confirmed crime all over the town and he's focusing on something that may not be true?

It looks like Marlena still had the letter opener. I think she tried to slash at the stalker person but it seems she lacks depth perception.

I think she lacks depth and perception.
