Big Brother

A lot of things come back from the dead on DOOL, but in this case it appears that DOOL itself has made the big comeback. The Prevuze team has been working for weeks to install the right satellite equipment to be able to receive the new digital signal. Yesterday we got that job done and waited with the proverbial baited breath this morning as it was time for the feed to pop in.

When it did, it was like seeing an old friend we thought was long gone. We're still having some technical issues on this end, but they won't affect you at all. In a nutshell...

PREVUZE IS BACK!

Later this morning, we'll post the first of what we hope to be many more day-ahead episodes.

Check back for that and please pass the word on your forums and blogs.

Once again, we have to thank everyone who has helped us with this project and also our readers for their patience.

Now, let's get back to having some fun.

Prevuze


Sami sits at her computer and builds a spreadsheet, "Let's see, put two in this row and two below it and now if I could figure out how to add them on this spreadsheet I'd know how much that is. I just love technology!" Lucas walks in and gets on her case. EJ closely follows him and they trade wisecracks. Well, I guess in their case, it's dumbcracks. They each announce they are taking their respective offspring for an outing. Sami puts the kibosh on their plans, "Neither of you are taking them anywhere. What — do you want them to have a life or something? "

Hope rushes into the pub and sits with Chelsea. Chelsea announces the hospital administration is being difficult and actually making her take classes to become an occupational therapist, "I'm going to be taking applied physics and Dean Robbins will be my professor."

"I hope your class is in a meat locker," says Hope. She tells her the dean will be even more boring than usual this year and the primary suspect is Mad Dog Brady.

Bo tells Roman Caroline isn't doing well, "Her babysitting business is off 99%,"

"Why not 100%," asks Roman.

"I spent a few minutes with her," says Bo.


Max dresses to go help his ma. He blames himself for bringing Trent into everyone's life. Stephanie defends him, "All you did was clean up his messes."

Melanie picks that moment to slither in, "Are you talking about me?" Max hugs her. Melanie thinks it looks like a bad time and says she'll come back later. Stephanie leaves instead and says she will meet Max at the jail. Melanie asks if Max trusts her. Well, of course he does. Melanie says, "I just want you to know your secret is safe with me. I know you killed him."

Bo and Roman go over the fats of the case with Patch. Patch plays devil's advocate. The devil appears and asks Patch not to do that, "My reputation is already bad enough." Abe comes in and asks if he can help. The mayor follows and taunts.

Hope says, "Caroline is just a suspect."

"So were Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer and Aileen Wuornos at first," says Chelsea. Hope can't say who the other suspects are. Chelsea says she has a good idea who they might be.

Max says he didn't kill Trent. Actually, he thinks Melanie did it. He's upset she's letting Mad Dog go down for this, "Are you as self serving and shallow as your pretend to be? Are you ever going to do something good in your life?"

Lexie sends Theo off with Dr. Mark. Kayla shows up. Lexie gasps, "Kayla, I'm surprised to see you here." She updates Kayla on Theo. Kayla asks if Lexie has any regrets that she quit her job as Chief of Staph. Lexie tells her she doesn't. "It's a good thing," says Kayla, "since I'm the NEW Chief of Staph. Could you get your junk out of my office pronto? "

Lucas says he told Sami he was coming over and she should have known better than to start the twins napping. He wants to take Allie anyway. Sami says he can deal with a cranky little girl if he wants to. Instead, Lucas goes to get Allie. Once he and Sami are alone, EJ says, "You seem to have something on your mind."

"No," says Sami, "It's still a total vacuum."

EJ sits down at her computer and rummages around. Sami tries to stop him but EJ finds himself looking at her resume, "I'm impressed," says EJ, "that you're using your initiative to do this."

"Initiative I've got," says Sami, "Skills — not so much."

The mayor is "concerned" about another murder in town and a Brady in jail. He says he's surprised they put Mad Dog behind bars, but even at that, he thinks there is a conflict of interest. He thinks someone more objective should handle the case. Bo gets defensive. Roman tells the mayor, "The best men are on the case."

"When can I meet them," asks the mayor, "I guess I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, but don't forget, Big Brother is watching."

"As dull as this show is," says Roman, "He's probably the only one."

The mayor sneers, "Don't make me call out the watchdogs or your mother will go down and so will all of you. I don't like the way the Brady's have run this town."

Chelsea tells Hope she thinks Melanie murdered Trent.

EJ goes over Sami's resume, "What are your skills?"

"Writing bad resumes," says Sami, "But I had the best SAT scores in my class. Unfortunately, it was because the rest of the class was just a bigger bunch of ree-tards than me."

"That's hard to believe," says EJ. He tells her to stay positive, "What else have you done?"

"I took four years of piano," says Sami, "I sucked at ballet, so I can't put that on there. I helped run Austin Reed Corporation in to the ground and my big skill is forgery. I don't think I'll find a job."

"I can't imagine why," says EJ, "You do have sexy eyes. That should be on the list."

I know what would help," says Sami, "It would be great if I could get one of those instant law degrees like you got."

Lucas comes in and announces, "I'm leaving with Allie."

"I'll alert the media," says EJ.

The mayor asks if Abe wants to do freelance work for him. He needs someone to watch the Brady boys, "Caroline can't babysit in jail." The mayor says he'd be willing to give Abe a healthy advance. Abe says he can't be bought.

Hope tells Chelsea she has to get to the station. Chelsea decides she will go see Theo. Hope asks how her social life is going. Chelsea says luckily she doesn't run into Daniel much at the hospital. "One of these days you'll find a guy who sweeps you off your feet," says Hope, "Just keep your broom handy." Chelsea says she wishes she had handled breakup with Nick differently. Hope asks, "Do you still have feelings for Nick?"

"No," says Chelsea, "Besides, he has his eye on someone else."

Melanie and Max argue. She storms out.

Lexie congratulates Kayla. They go for coffee, work be damned.

Bo fills out the suspects board, There's Ma, Max, Nick..."

Roman interrupts, "No way. Nick's a geek. He couldn't be involved in something that brutal."

"You're right says Bo. "The only one he ever killed was willow. It wasn't nearly so brutal to 'accidentally' throw her head against a rock." Bo adds Nicole to the list. Roman can't believe she and Trent were married. Hope walks in and names Melanie.

Lucas is peeved Sami put cloth diapers in the bag, "You know they don't fit me right." Sami insists they are good for the environment.

She tells Lucas she's working on her resume, "I don't have a brother who owns a billion dollar company."

Lexie warns Kayla to watch out for Pruneface Thomas. Abe joins them. Kayla gets a page and runs off. Abe tells Lexie about the mayor's offer.

Abe's old buddy Scott walks up. Abe tells him he's no longer commissioner. Scott asks to talk to Abe alone, "I need a favor."

Stephanie comes into the office as Bo hides the secret board. Patch tells her Mad Dog isn't the only suspect. He can't say who else is. Bo asks if Stephanie thinks Melanie is capable of murder.

The doc brings Theo back. He's pleased with his progress. Chelsea comes up and gives him a snow globe. Mark leaves. Chelsea and Lexie talk about Theo and then Chelsea goes to see Mad Dog.

Abe thinks it's an intriguing proposition. Scott says, "People respect you. The time is right, Abe. How 'bout it? How about running for mayor. You know how it goes... mayor now, in two years, you're governor, in two more years, vice president. You even look a little like her when you're wearing glasses."

Melanie asks if everyone thinks she killed Trent. Stephanie leaves to talk to Max.

Max tells her about the fight he had with Melanie. Stephanie tells him she's inside.

Bo has a few questions for Melanie, "For starters, did you kill Trent Robbins?"

"No," says Melanie, "I did not."

"Oh," says Bo, "Well, I guess that ends that."

Sami thinks arresting Caroline is all a mistake. EJ comes back. Sami tells him everything is fine and suggests they both take the twins and go. EJ asks if everything is all right. Sami puts up a brave front. Off goes EJ. Sami tells Lucas to go too. She calls for Roman. They won't let her talk to him. Sami freaks and then faints.

"Abe says he doesn't think now is the right time to run for mayor."

"It's an election year," says Scott.

"Is that significant," asks Abe. Scott says he would finance Abe's campaign. Lexie overhears. Scott leaves and Abe tells her what's up.

Stephanie, Max and Chelsea go to meet officer Bennett.

Melanie says she came to Salem for a fresh start. She thinks she would have been better off in France. Bo tells her she's a suspect, so she can't leave town.

Lucas comes back to the mansion and finds Sami on the floor. He rushes over and tries to wake her but it's no use. She's already seen this episode.

Sami may not know spread sheets but she sure has control freak down pat.
 
"I'm going to be taking applied physics and Dean Robbins will be my professor."

"I hope your class is in a meat locker," says Hope.

 
Maybe Chelsea meant she was taking anatomy, and Dean Robbins is her assigned cadaver.
 
"I'm impressed," says EJ, "that you're using your initiative to do this."

"Initiative I've got," says Sami, "Skills — not so much."

 
Skills, she don’t need no stinkin’ skills.  After all, Lucas is CFO of Titan.  Maybe she can send that resume to Berkshire Hathaway to the attention of Jimmy, make that Warren Buffet, and she can help him straighten out Goldman Sachs.
 
EJ goes over Sami's resume, "What are your skills?"

"Writing bad resumes," says Sami.

 
Perfect!!!  DOOL is looking for writers.  Sami will fit right in!!!
 
Hope asks, "Do you still have feelings for Nick?"

"No," says Chelsea.

 
I’m guessing her nose grew about 12 inches.
 
He rushes over and tries to wake her but it's no use. She's already seen this episode.
 
Instead of using her computer to write her resume, Sami should have been reading Prevuze/the virtual smelling salts for watching DOOL.  At least Prevuze has skills and now a satellite feed!!!  What more could the faithful ask for?  I was going to make that a rhetorical question but I have come up with an answer…a more believable and watchable Daze.

We know that Sami is about to be revealed as being pregnant again.

I wish they would lock Melanie up and throw away the key, and let poor Caroline out of jail. I don't like Melanie at all. She is exactly what Julie said, a troublemaker. She will chew Nick up and spit him out if they get involved. She is probably only after the grant money he got. I would like for Chelsea to find out that it was Nick, not Granny, who gave her that 50K. Seems Nick only attracts females who need his money?

Anyone know what date Galen Gerig will start on DOOL as the FBI agent? I know Eric Martsholf is due to appear in November to be the new Brady Black.

It's so nice to have the satellite feed working for you again, Prevuze. I hope things go smoothly for you now.

Why doesn't EJ just move both Sami and Nicole to Utah or AZ and become polygamists?

Well, DUH! Ya think?

I don't like the way the Brady's have run this town.

Love it! This Mayor Underthetable is pretty sharp.

Sami, "It would be great if I could get one of those instant law degrees like you got."

Or an instant job as a CFO with absolutely NO experience like Lucas just got.

She tells Lucas she's working on her resume, "I don't have a brother who owns a billion dollar company."

Sami gets a free stuffed toy for that slam dunk.

Did you kill Trent Robbins?" "No," says Melanie, "I did not." "Oh," says Bo, "Well, I guess that ends that."

Yeah I’ve always been impressed with Bo’s interrogation skills. The Closer he ain’t.

TWO Prevuzes this morning. I'm overwhelmed. The number of Prevuisms in this report alone were too numerous to mention. Thanks.

The mayor asks if Abe wants to do freelance work for him.

My big HUH moment of the day...is this the same Abe that the mayor was so upset at less than a week ago over how the lockdown at the Hospital was handled that Abe resigned? Now Mayor Greasemypalms wants him to do freelance work?

Sami insists they are good for the environment.

Anybody know when DOOL will get off of this holier-than-thou environmental kick? I'm getting even more tired of being lectured to about green restaraunts and disposable diapers than I am of their recycled scripts!!!
