The Detoxing Dimwit

Caroline backs up in fear, "OMG, I thought I took care of you!" Sslloowwllyy, Trent the zombie stumbles toward her and then falls on her. The two tumble to the ground in a heap. Caroline struggles to get out from under him and grabs the bloody knife in his back as Trent goes into spasms. "Hold still," screams Caroline, "I can't get a good set of my fingerprints on the knife if you keep wiggling like that." Finally, using all the strength she has, Caroline rips the knife out of his back and sits there shaking and sniveling.

Bo, and Hope rush up. It takes the other two cops longer to get there since they don't want to spill their coffee. Bo sees Caroline shaking and grasping the knife, "MA! Put that knife back where you got it!" Caroline rams the knife into Trent's back.

Kate and Daniel go into a room in the hospital. "Lung cancer," gasps Kate, "I need a cigarette." Daniel tells her he's not positive.

"You're not positive," screeches Kate, "Why would you tell me I have lung cancer if you're not sure."

"That's the way things are done at Salem Hospital," says Daniel, "Besides, I just wanted to pull your chain." Daniel wants a biopsy, "It may be in its early stages." Kate don' wan' no stinkin' sympathy. She also doesn't want Daniel to tell anyone. A nurse calls him out. Daniel resists but Kate tells him to go. Daniel leaves and finds Nicole outside.

Phillip finds Chloe in the pub and yanks off her napkin. Salem's just full of cutups today. "Where's Lucas, "he snickers."

"Don't know," says Chloe, "Don't care."

Melanie conceals Trent's ID as she gets her money. She and Nick argue about who should pay. She wants to see some of Salem's hotspots. Nick says he isn't sure where Daniel and Kate go. Melanie thinks there are a few things she can teach him. The professor is ready to learn.

Max steps out of the shower and asks Stephanie, "Are you going to join me?"

Shocked Stephanie asks, "Why is there blood all over your shirt?"

"I need to get a new blade in that razor," says Max.

Caroline stammers and dotters. Bo asks what she has done.

Nicole describes her symptoms to Daniel. He gives her a form as Kate comes out to leave. She sees Nicole and pours out the sympathy, "Run out of alcohol?"

Kate walks off and Daniel tells Nicole, "This looks like a classic case of the DTs."

"The DTs," asks Nicole.

"Yes," says Dr. Jonas, "DOOL Tremens. If you don't stop watching that show, you're going to kill yourself."

Chloe says she wasn't really serious and Lucas is running errands with Allie, "Living with a baby 24/7 is exhausting."

Phillip beats Prevuze to the punch, "Are you talking about Lucas or Allie?" Chloe defends Lucas, "And may I ask, where is Miss Steel Magnolia?"

"She's visiting her mother," says Phillip, "Mrs. Iron Daffodil."

"You'd better stay out of trouble while she's away." Phillip suggests he and Chloe can stay out of trouble together.

Doug and Julie arrive at Chez Rouge. They immediately take note of Melanie across the room. Maggie and Mickey fill them in on her. Julie thinks there is something about Melanie she doesn't like.

Caroline reads from the bloody copy of the Guy Manual she found in Trent's Pocket, "This is not what it looks like."

Hope tells her to shut up until she gets an attorney, "Let him talk your way into the gas chamber instead." She turns and tells Bo he has to arrest his mom. He can't afford any mistakes. Bo suggests Hope call Mickey and tells Jenkins to read Caroline her rights.

Jenkins drones, "You have the right to remain silent.,,"

"Forget it, buddy," says Caroline.

Max tells Stephanie he just happened to be strolling through the cemetery and he and Trent got into a fight at OMB's grave.

"OMB never could stay out of a brawl," says Stephanie.

Melanie gushes over Nick defending her. She says she's going to keep coming up with ways to thank him until he's completely satisfied. She walks over and sits on his lap and has dessert.

Julie watches the disgusting display, "One word... Troublemaker."

"How do you know that," asks Doug, "You've never even met her."

"It takes one to know one," says Julie.

Hope calls Mickey and tells him about Mad Dog Caroline being arrested. Mickey hangs up and tells the crowd what happened. Maggie tells them Trent was Melanie's father. Mickey goes over to tell them the bad news, that Trent is dead. Melanie dances around the room singing a modified version of "The Wicked Witch Is Dead."

Bo tells the cop to haul Mad Dog in, but not to use any names when he radios in, "There's a donut in it for you."

Mad Dog babbles, "I didn't kill anyone. The knife did." They haul her off.

"This does not look good says Bo," says Bo.

"You sure know how to assess a situation," says Hope, "But you did the right thing."

Nicole tells Daniel she is on a steady regimen of alcohol. She thinks it's food poisoning, "I'm nauseous."

"You certainly are," says Daniel.

Nicole gets testy, "I need a drink, stat!"

Chloe is glad she and Phillip are still friends. So is Phillip. He says he was angry when she hooked up with Lucas but they have too much history to throw it all away. And she has too many assets. He grabs her MP3 Player, "What are you listening to these days, The Jonas Brothers?"

"No," says Chloe, "But I'm doing a couple of idiot brothers." She tells him she's actually listening to opera and would like to get back into singing. Lucas watches from outside.

Stephanie and Max smooch as she gets as they both get phone calls. Melanie tells Max about Trent and also tells him Mad Dog Brady has been arrested. Stephanie gets the same news.

A cop shows Roman the bloody knife, "We pulled this from Trent's body."

"Do you think it was the murder weapon," asks Roman. Bo hauls Mad Dog in. Roman sees her bloody hands, "No... This can't be. Ma, how many times have I told you to wash your hands after burying a knife in someone's body? " Bo 'splains what happened. Mad Dog claims innocence. Roman tells her everything will be OK, "The lethal injection procedure is very humane these days. Besides, once we get you booked, you can practically walk right out of this place."

Mickey, Maggie, Doug and Julie arrive. Mickey takes Mad Dog into Roman's office to talk. Bo tells the other three stooges what happened. He turns and looks at Roman's closed door, "Wish I could be in there with her."

"You can," says Doug, "Mickey left his rubber hose out here. You can take it in to him." Nick and Melanie walk in.

Stephanie can't believe Trent is dead. Max thinks Stephanie believes he is the murderer.

Nicole says she has stopped shaking. She needs vodka in the IV. She asks Daniel to stay with her. They talk about Chelsea, then Victor finding out their marriage and divorce settlement is invalid.

"You could get a job," suggests Daniel.

"The shakes are coming back," says Nicole. Daniel leaves to check out the tests. Nicole whispers, "I hope you burn in hell, Trent."

Kate gets a call at Chez Rouge. It's Daniel just calling to check up on her. She says she's waiting for a client. Daniel can't believe she's working and tells her she doesn't have to put on an act. Kate plays it cool, "Save your sympathy for the detoxing dimwit." She hangs up.

Chloe says she promised Lucas she would help with Allie so she can't get back into singing. Lucas walks up. He says he hates to see her sacrifice her dreams. "Where's Allie," gasps Chloe.

"I dumped her on Alice," says Lucas, "You don't expect me to look after the little runt, do you? " Lucas says he thinks she should focus on her career. He tells her Phillip can help.

Julie introduces herself to Melanie and extends her sympathy. She and Doug walk off. Nick offers to take her home. "No," says Melanie, "I want to stay and figure out what happened."

"You're more likely to do that than the SPD," says Nick.

Bo comes up, "Melanie, I hate to do this but I'm going to have to ask you to identify the body." Melanie agrees to do it. "Thanks," says Bo, "We'll call you when we're ready. We have to brush off a few of the maggots first."

Melanie falls all over Nick, "I'm so glad you're here. I don't know what I would have done without you."

Mickey and Roman talk about Mad Dog's situation. Roman has no choice but to put her in the slammer.

Stephanie says, "I know you didn't kill Trent. Not with Mad Dog Brady out there. But seeing the blood on your shirt freaked me out. I'm worried." They head for the station. We pan to the bloody shirt on the dresser.

Patch joins Hope, "What are you doing at the crime scene," asks Hope, "You're not part of the SPD."

"Gadfly Investigations is just here to help out," says Patch.
Hope wants Patch to keep investigating Trent's past. Patch examines the body, "I don't like to speak ill of the dead but a lot of people will be better off with you gone."

Daniel finds Nicole making a list of things she can sell online. Daniel asks if she isn't going to fight for her settlement. Nicole says yes but she's preparing for the worst. Daniel says he has the results of her tests, "There is really nothing wrong with you, except you have the worst of all STDs – you're pregnant."

"You've got to be kidding me," says Nicole.

Lucas announces he's the new CFO at Titan. Chloe can't believe it. Phillip jumps in, "Where else were we going to find a convicted felon who helped run Myth-Ick into the ground, has been investigated by the SEC, who has no education, and the brain of a mayfly? Come on, Titan is on pretty sound financial footing and we have to get someone in there who can really screw it up before the government bailout passes us by."

Lucas says, "I found out the Kiriakis Foundation is underwriting the Kansas City Opera Theater. They're putting on a production of Moogoletto and I think you'd be perfect for the lead part." Phillip offers to help her get a job. Chloe thinks Lucas is special. Likewise. Phillip leaves. Outside he looks back in at the happy couple and sighs.

Patch surveys the crime scene. A cop hands Hope the initial findings. Hope says, "Aside from being stabbed in the back it looks like Trent had one hell of a rough night."

Patch says, "He pissed a lot of people off."

Hope says, "One person went so far as to kill him."

"How do you know," asks Patch.

"Dead body," says Hope, "Knife in the back."

Patch shakes his head, "You amaze me."

"More than one person did this to him," says Hope.

"Did you happen to see 'Murder On The Orient Express,'" asks Patch.

"Yes," says Hope, "And apparently, so did the DOOL writers."

"I'll bet my good eye Caroline didn't kill him," says Patch.

They haul Mad Dog Brady off to the big house. Roman helps her walk the last mile.

Julie bawls out Bo for arresting his mom. Bo says he won't rest until he finds out who killed Trent. Max and Stephanie walk in.

Hope prays, "Shawn, please help Caroline. She's going to need all the help she can get."

A detective walks up behind her, "Hope, are you praying to OMB?"

Hope looks up, "He got a promotion."

The detective shows her a fiber they found. "Maybe this can help us find the killer," says Hope.

Roman on one side a priest on the other, Mad Dog Brady walks the long corridor. They take her to her cell. Roman closes the door. Mad Dog takes her tin cup and scrapes it across the bars, "Let me outta here you lousy screws!"



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

Except for Nicole finding out she is pregnant, which all of us viewers already knew weeks ago, nothing new was accomplished on today's episode of DOOL. It might be interesting to learn if Nicole has been involved sexually with anyone besides EJ that one time in the elevator? I wonder if DOOL's writers will bring this to the table. I vote for Dr. Daniel because of the remarks he made to Nicole about them already being past the weather remarks stage. He surely seems to be a horny man, and we know she is promiscuous. As far as we know it though, she has only been with EJ, the DOOL super stud. His sperm should be saved for scientific evaluation. lol

I liked the suggestion that Roman could justify Caroline's actions quickly by saying that Trent was stalking Caroline, then came out of the bushes, fell on top of her, and was trying to rape her, so she was only defending herself. It makes more sense than some of the drivel we are shown.

Thank God for Prevuze! The show is lousy but Prevuze is a riot.

Loved the Steve/Hope comments. Knife in back, You're amazing, lol.

Completely captured my thoughts with Lucas getting a job at Titan. I just wish Phillip would have introduced the person who would actually be doing Lucas' job. Would have been nice to have a new interesting character who actually could DO something.

Great preview for a pretty boring show. Thanks!

Other than DOOL writers, would anyone NOT consider an elderly woman alone at night (granted in a cemetery which is weird)stabbing some strange guy that's coming at her in a threatening and predatory manner self defense? Of course, then you have to get to the fact that she's alone in a cemetery at night. I live in a small town where everyone knows everyone and I can promise you I'd not be in a cemetery after dark. Why not have her coming home from the grocery store or something? Some semblance of reality people! It's pretty sad when you consider that John's "death" by a hit & run while going to jimmy open Belle's car after she locked her keys in it is one of the most realistic deaths in DOOL history.

Not to mention, that if someone fell on me and died, I'd probably automatically pull the knife out and not think about finger prints. And to anyone in the law enforcement profession -- would someone be immediately arrested if found in that position?

"This looks like a classic case of the DTs."

"The DTs," asks Nicole.

"Yes," says Dr. Jonas, "DOOL Tremens. If you don't stop watching that show, you're going to kill yourself."

Oh, that’s the reason I have to stop myself from screaming and running into traffic.  The symptoms for DOOL Tremens are the same as for the flu…fever, diarrhea, and vomiting.  Perhaps I should take two aspirin and drink plenty of fluids or, better yet, remove DOOL from my DVR.
Julie thinks there is something about Melanie she doesn't like.
Julie is keenly observant.
Caroline reads from the bloody copy of the Guy Manual she found in Trent's Pocket, "This is not what it looks like."
Apparently, the “Guy Manual” can be found on for 30% off the listed price and is eligible for free shipping.
Bo comes up, "Melanie, I hate to do this but I'm going to have to ask you to identify the body."
Huh?  There isn’t a person who frequents the Brady Pub that wouldn’t be able to identify scumbag Trent.  Besides, Trent has a wife…Misty Circle.  Anyway, no one looks at bodies anymore.  Bodies are identified using photographs, which is a heck of lot more humane for the bereaved.
"More than one person did this to him," says Hope.

"Did you happen to see 'Murder On The Orient Express,'" asks Patch.

"Yes," says Hope, "And apparently, so did the DOOL writers."

Prevuze, you beat me to the punch on that one.
DOOL has once again entered the “Twilight Zone”.  Come on…Lucas as CFO of Titan?  What does his golden parachute look like?  Once Titan tanks, he’s going to need it.  What corporations are on his resume…Lehman Brothers, Washington Mutual, Enron, Freddie Mac, and/or Fannie Mae?  This is even crazier than Nicole’s pregnancy.  Nicole is having routine blood tests done in the evening…at a hospital no less.  What’s with that?  Doesn’t she have health insurance?  Did she come in through the ER?  I’ve had to wait several days to get the results of any blood work I’ve had done.  DOOL is truly an innovator in improbability.
Good lord, Prevuze, you really must have had to suppress your gag reflex watching this garbage.  Good luck dealing with the satellite guy.  With all his drinking, maybe he will turn up pregnant, too.

I must say, I was surprised to find out what the initials “D.T” stood for. LOLOL

Max thinks Stephanie believes he is the murderer.

Uh, gee, I wonder where she would get an idea like that?

This had to be my HUH!? moment of all time…

Lucas announces he's the new CFO at Titan.

When Philip said he could find a job for Lucas I was thinking “marketing intern”, “administrative aide”, “assistant to the assistant mail room toady”, but C.Freakin’O??? Pardon me while I wipe away the tears running down my cheeks from laughing.

I AM a CFO. It took an advanced degree and a couple of decades of experience to get to this point. And my employer is only a $100 million, 700 employee organization. I can't imagine a supposed multi-faceted, international corporation hiring some college drop-out, convicted felon as CFO.

Great pictures today, especially of S&K wanting Caroline to babysit L’il Joe from behind bars.

I'm sure I had more comments to make. But once I hit the Lucas-as-CFO statement everything else was just blown away. LOLOL

OMG! Why did they have to pick on K.C. Between the Royals and the Chiefs (although the latter did have a pretty good day yesterday), aren’t we humiliated enough?

Good luck on the satellite thingy today, Prevuze. Keep us posted.

I know who killed Trent.

It was the poor unknown slob who's slaved and worked his or herself up the ladder at Titan and waited for the CFO position to open up only to find it went to imbecile Lucas. Either they mistook Trent for Lucas or just didn't care whoever was in the way when they picked up the knife.

OR, it could have been the poor unknown slob who slaved and worked his or herself up the ladder at the Salem PD waiting for a commissioner job to open up....

OR, it could have been the poor unknown slob who slaved and worked up the ladder at the hospital waiting for a Chief of Staph position to open up....

I guess I could go on and on. LOL over Caroline babysitting L'il Joe and the Kansas City Opera. HAHAHAHA

Prevuze, you've helped make a bad Monday morning much much better. Thanks!

Since Lucas is now qualified to be the CFO of Titan, does that mean he's also qualified to perhaps be dispatched to run one of their overseas operations? And could he take the Detoxing Dimwit with him?

I just watched the clip of tomorrow's show, and it looks like the bars of Caroline's jail cell are spaced far enough apart that she could just slide between them and walk out.

If a person with a knife sticking out of his back fell on top of you, would you pull the knife out? That's gross and weird.

I don't think you're suppose to pull it out, but in a moment of panic you might.

Another example of University Hospital's finest!

I think Dr. Dan has earned a free appointment at the David Duchovny Memorial Sex Addiction Treatment Clinic. I hear they have a punch card special--based on the amount of "getting around" the offendee engages in. Jus' sayin.

Mad Dog Brady. lol

So Trent got his ass whooped all night, got his wallet stolen, and then, eventually, got stabbed. Très magnifique!

I love seeing a Brady behind bars. It's hilarious for some reason.

Dr. Dan is amazing, he should get on curing that lung cancer problem so he can deliver the high risk pregnancies for Sami and Nicole.

Soon Lucas and Phillip will be battling for the presidency. Horton 2012!

Not really sure what to say, other than I'm going to be a CFO tomorrow. I don't know why I didn't apply when I hit 16.

I agree that those jail cell bars seemed wide enough for Caroline to squeeze through easily enough. Hopefully, she won't be in jail by tomorrow and out on bail already. I think they should have made the fall guy one of the younger crowd or Nicole, not Caroline at her elderly age. But, we know Victor could just make one simple phone call and have her off the hook immediately. Can't wait for him to rescue his sweetie. Maybe that is why DOOL writers did it this way, so he and Caroline can finally get back together?

EJ could have rescued Nicole almost in the same way though. He's just not nearly as powerful as Victor is, but Stefano is. lol

Between Victor and Stefano controlling things on DOOL, it makes a person kinda sick to have to live in reality.

I had an idea after watching today's episode. It was too late to do this during today's, but from now on let's all play the drinking game any time someone says "But you KNOW Caroline couldn't have done it!"

We'll all be soused by the end of each episode.
