Locker Room Lolita Makes A Comeback

Mayor Greasehispalm takes Hope into the Abe Carver Memorial Office to talk to her about taking the commissioner's job. She's the best qualified person in Salem because the commissioner has to be able to find a babysitter at a moment's notice, slice Detective Bo Brady to ribbons with her tongue while planning a girls' night out and go down easier than a two foot putt when some guy hands her a crock about the legend of some flower. What's more, the new commissioner must only have been back on the job a couple months after being off for an extended period of time. In addition, she must have at least one son who qualifies as a full-blown cretin.

Hope tosses the "glass ceiling" chip on the table since we doofs who watch this show couldn't possibly have the mental capacity to grasp the concept on our own. Finally, she tells Mayor Onthetake she'll have to think it over. Mayor Underthetable says he has to have an answer by the end of the day and knows Hope will make the right decision. He leaves. Hope goes outside, where Bo and Roman treat her like she just got elected third grade eraser cleaning princess. Bo sees the opportunity to rake in the commissioner's salary without having to do the work himself. Roman hits her with the fact that if she turns the position down and Mayor Graft points one of his lackeys, it will be a lot harder to get Stefano.

Roman and Bo work on Hope to take the job. Hope doesn't think it will work. Bo and Hope talk alone and Hope keeps up the resistance. Hope's Chevrolet necklace sparkles as Bo plays the DiMera card. Hope says she's worried about being away from Ciara, whom she hasn't seen in months anyway. Hope wonders if Bo would be OK with her being his boss. Bo says only if she wore six inch spiked heels, carried a whip and kept reminding him what a bad boy he had been. They find common ground as the thought of that kind of turns Hope on too. She tells Bo she can't take the job merely to get Stefano. Roman interrupts and says Mayor Croneymonger is on the phone and he wants Hope's answer. Hope takes the call and turns the job down. Bo supports her decision, but reminds her he's still been a very bad boy.

Stefano rambles about the nature of a pawn, which he thinks was made for sacrifice. Rolf reminds him John's brain is about fried and John is toast. Stefano doesn't want that. He wants to see John suffer. Stefano confides in Rolf. He tells him John is only a pawn. His end game is really to destroy Marlena once and for all.

Nicole comes back from another pukefest. She runs into Trent and really starts feeling nauseated. She tells Trent he owes her $10 million. Nicole tells him Bo and Hope found out about her past as Misty Circle. Trent gets ideas and says if she's really hard up for cash, maybe she can accomplish that if Locker Room Lolita makes a comeback. Max interrupts as Trent harasses her.

Nicole goes off and Max threatens to kill Trent again. Trent tells Max he will never really be a Brady because deep down inside, he's just like his dear old dad. The sober but nasty one, that is. Trent walks away. Inside, Nicole contemplates a knife on the bar, but has to run off for puke-a-paloosa-twosa.

John has trouble focusing as Anna warns him Marlena is going to divorce him. John faints. Anna keeps talking... she's used to people losing consciousness when she babbles on. John snaps out of it. He says he will urge Marlena to reconsider divorcing him. John loses focus again and goes down like a Kansas City quarterback. Anna panics.

Kayla asks Marlena if she wants to talk about her troubles. Marlena tells her John is spiraling out of control. Marlena blames herself for his actions. She says she's giving up on John. If that's the case, Kayla thinks John might have some hope after all.

Daniel rakes Nurse Bumbleup over the coals for nearly killing some poor patient. Kayla takes him to task for acting unprofessionally. Daniel bites her head off and runs into Chelsea as he stomps off. Chelsea is there to check out granny. Daniel has already done that. He can't tell her anything about Kate, including why they slept together. Daniel takes the responsibility for that. Chelsea runs out.

Nurse Bumbleup brings Daniel a file containing Kate's test results. He apologizes for his earlier outburst. After the nurse leaves, Daniel looks at Kate's file and calls the Salem Mortuary to make a reservation for her. He also calls Kate to come in and talk. Chelsea watches.

Kayla checks John out after they wheel him in. she suggests calling Marlena. Anna calls her and tells her John is in the hospital. Marlena rushes to John's side. John insists he's fine and thinks the fact that Marlena is there might mean she doesn't despise him after all. Marlena says she could never despise John, just treat him like dirt. John asks if she still wants him out of her life and Marlena just walks off.

Kayla looks at John's x-rays and gasps. When Marlena comes down Kayla shows her the shocking cranial x-rays. She explains that the main cranial region is completely clouded over.

Prevuze

John decides he wants to go home. Anna and Kayla try to stop him. Kayla says she isn't sure what's wrong with John. That would require her making a diagnosis and she doesn't have much experience with that kind of thing. He gets a call and heads off. Kayla tells Anna John could be heading for disaster.

Marlena goes to see Stefano and demands the disc containing John's memories. She calls Stefano a sociopathic bastard and says she knows he has it. She tells him about John's seizure. Stefano is unmoved. Marlena can't understand how he lives with himself. Stefano can't understand how anyone could live with Marlena. Marlena begs. Stefano says John's fate was sealed years ago. Marlena huffs off.

Rolf comes down, tells Stefano he's accessed University Hospital's server and confirmed John's brain is a time bomb. Right before John flames out is when he will be ready to be reprogrammed as Stefano's pawn. Stefano says they don't need John any more. He tells Rolf he can retire this outdated model and find someone new to play with.

Marlena looks at the pictures of John's brain and vows to save him.

Hope wonders if Bo would be OK with her being his boss. Bo says only if she wore six inch spiked heels, carried a whip and kept reminding him what a bad boy he had been.
 
Mayor Graft has given the SPD Commissioner Dominatrix…only in Salem.
 
Nicole comes back from another pukefest.
 
Does she have any enamel left on her teeth?  Just asking.
 
Chelsea is there to check out granny. Daniel has already done that.
 
…and so has Stefano.  He just proposed marriage to Kate.  Shouldn’t he be hanging around the hospital keeping the death watch?
 
Marlena can't understand how he lives with himself. Stefano can't understand how anyone could live with Marlena.
 
I’m beginning to wonder how any of us can watch her.
 
Rolf comes down, tells Stefano he's accessed University Hospital's server and confirmed John's brain is a time bomb.
 
Rolf, the mad scientist and computer hacker, is quite a potent combination.  Apparently, Rolf is again Stefano’s creature.  Does this mean he’s going to lose his personality and return to being a complete cipher?  What a shame.  He was starting to be really fun.
 
Marlena looks at the pictures of John's brain and vows to save him.
 
Good gravy…will someone come forward to save the viewers?  Someone already has, and that is Prevuze.  Once again, thanks for the stellar recap!!

"John loses focus again and goes down like a Kansas City quarterback." Ouch! Is it possible for a reader to laugh and cry at the same time? HA

I thought after the hospital's numerous paternity test changes they ramped up security. But apparently Rolf can hack in whenever he needs to. Fred Frump Security Guy asleep at the computer again.

Loved the DOOL-induced brain calcification. And I can't remember what I had for breakfast but Prevuze remembers Lonely Splicer and the legend of the flower?? Prevuze, you amaze! Thanks for the rainy morning laughs. :D

Good one, c.

Loved the brain calcification picture. But, for pete's sake, no wonder it's calcified. Those same brain scans have been posted up on that wall for a decade!!

Anna keeps talking... she's used to people losing consciousness when she babbles on.

Love it!

John loses focus again and goes down like a Kansas City quarterback.

I’d penalize Prevuze 15 yards for a personal foul, but, unfortunately it’s true. HAHAHA

Daniel looks at Kate's file and calls the Salem Mortuary to make a reservation for her.

I mean, it is Salem Hospital - providing funeral parlors an all-you-can-bury bonanza business isn’t it?

Rolf comes down, tells Stefano he's accessed University Hospital's server.

Well of course he has! Who can’t?

A HUGE HUH?! moment:
He also calls Kate to come in and talk.

You mean Dr. Dan isn’t going to tell everyone in Salem Kate's dianosis before he discusses it with her? Isn’t that against some Salem physicians’ code of ethics??

Loved the report today, especially the listing of Hope's qualifications to be Commissioner and all of the Mayor's names.

Leslie, a big THANK YOU for the heads up (yesterday)on James Scott's appearance in Peoria next month. When I told my daughter about it, she said we need to take a ride to go see him...she thinks he's just as hot as I do, albeit for different reasons! ;-)

I'm watching the show while eating lunch. Luckily I don't have to watch what's in my mouth watching the actual show. Unless it's to make sure I don't fall asleep and choke on something.

But I digress. I logged in to elaborate on Dr. Dan going against the Salem doctors' code by actually intending to talk to Kate about her condition before spreading it around the town. Case in point - Kayla just dragged John's ex-wife into the room and shared his x-rays with her before talking to John himself. LOLOL

‘Course, he hasn’t actually talked to Kate yet, so there is still time for him to tell Chelsea/Phil/Lucas/Victor before Kate knows!

Awesome, so it's that easy to hack into a hospital's server. Rolf's skills are always amazing.

He tells Rolf he can retire this outdated model and find someone new to play with.
It has to be Joe, he's the new pawn. Just SORA him and we're good to go.

Kayla just dragged John's ex-wife into the room and shared his x-rays with her before talking to John himself. LOLOL
Good spot Applecheeks, they do this so much it doesn't even register with me when it happens. I would hardly notice it in real life. haha.

Max is so stupid, he never had any homicidal 'rages' before, so why would his blood matter now? Same goes for Melanie, it's pretty easy to see Trent created an unhealthy atmosphere which is why she is the way she is. Blood has nothing to with it.

No one will realize this and angst for months about 'nature vs. nuture' philosophical nonsense. And furthermore - *head explodes*

Nicole's puke-a-paloosa-twosa....who else is thinking that Nicole is carrying the next Elvis Jr, Jr?

And many, many thanks for all of the work that goes into Prevuze. Your efforts are saving the rest of us from having to actually watch the drivel (which we wouldn't mind if DOOL was actually as entertaining as Prevuze).
