Bleached Blonde Bimbo

Stephanie visits Phillip at the Kiriakis mansion. He's out on the patio and she tells him for Halloween she's dressed as a girlfriend whose boyfriend just dumped her. Phillip offers her a seat on the Kate-Daniel memorial chaise. She sits down and checks it out, "The springs are broken on this thing."

"It's seen a lot of heavy action," says Phillip, "You know, Max would be a fool for letting you go."

"I guess that means Max and I are toast."

Melanie samples the Halloween candy at the pub. She tells Max about Bo and Hope setting her up. She says she thinks whatever was in the letter cleared her and then asks Max what was in the box Trent left him. Max don' wan' no stinkin' box, "Bo can keep it and I don't care what's inside it. Trent brought nothing but trouble into my life and I wish I had never met him."

Melanie whines, "If it weren't for him, you'd never have met me. Are you saying you're sorry you met me?"

Max doesn't even have to think about that one, "Perceptive little thing aren't you?"

Bo and Hope haul Nicole in. They want a confession. Nicole obliges, "I confess I never did like either of you. You're a couple of clowns impersonating police officers."

Bo wonders where EJ is, "Maybe he decided you're more trouble than you're worth."

SNORE! GXORKSNZZZZ! HONK!

Sami wanders around the room as Hilda imitates the sound of a lumberjack cutting down a giant redwood, "Hilda is as annoying asleep as she is awake." She decides she wants to watch a horror movie so she digs around under Hilda to find the remote. The doorbell rings. Sami thinks it's more trick or treaters.

The stalker stalks...

Nicole tries to call EJ but he doesn't pick up. She insists he wouldn't abandon her. Hope wants answers, "Your case is weaker than a wine cooler."

"What the hell does that mean," asks Nicole.

"I have no idea," says Hope, "It was in the script, so I said it."

"Well," says Nicole, "Whoever came up with that one is weaker than a wine cooler."
Hope runs through all the evidence against Nicole. Nicole reminds them Trent might have been trying to frame her.

"I don't think so," says Hope, "Pretty soon you'll be cooling your spiked heels in a jail cell." EJ arrives.

The intruder rattles the doorknob as Sami gasps and panics. Outside, the stalker takes out his Glock. Sami desperately tries to wake Hilda.

Stephanie and Phillip talk. Stephanie goes over the top, "My - whine - heart - sob - is physically - whine - breaking - sob." Blood spews. Phillip suggests she go talk to Max. "What are you suggesting," asks Stephanie, "That would be the sensible, adult thing to do. I'd much rather sit here whining and feeling sorry for myself."

"You forgot the part about bugging the life out of me," says Phillip.

"Besides," whines Stephanie, "Max always chooses Melanie over me. I just wish Melanie would get the hell out of Salem. And if she doesn't I don't see how me and Max can work things out."

Phillip says, "I'll call Max and tell him if he knows what's good for him he'd better do everything possible to keep Melanie in town. "

Prevuze

Phillip thinks the trouble isn't totally Melanie's' fault.

Max says he's glad he found Melanie but she has put him through hell. They go over well trodden ground. Melanie says she didn't mean to hurt him. She's decided to get a job and save up to buy a place of her own. Max thinks that will take a while. Nick overhears their conversation, and jumps in, "You can stay with me." Max jaw shatters as it hits the floor.

EJ says things don't look good considering Nicole's priors with Colin and Victor. "I didn't murder them," protests Nicole, "They are alive and well. No harm no foul." She asks EJ to vouch for her since they are involved, "I haven't tried to hurt you."

EJ gets a clue, "Not yet."

Nick says he's living with Maggie and Mickey so it won't be "like that."

Bo gets off the phone with the DA and announces, "The charges against Caroline will be dropped." Bo heads out to tell Caroline.

EJ says he is having a hard time taking this in. He wants Nicole to tell him the unfiltered version. Nicole sings. She says she followed Trent to the cemetery but he was alive when she left him, "You don't believe me, do you? You think I killed Trent."

The stalker picks the lock. Sami blubbers. The door opens and the intruder barks, "Come out slowly. Hands in the air." Sami cowers behind the couch.

Stephanie thinks Melanie has Phillip fooled too. He reminds her he turned her in, "Would you like a drink. I know I need one." Stephanie orders a brandy as Phillip says he thinks Melanie is all bark no bite.

"She's a bitch with major bite," says Stephanie.

"Oh," says Phillip, "I see you've noticed her mouthful of teeth, too."

Melanie wants to talk to Max alone before she makes a decision. She and Max walk off as Nick digs into his John Black Memorial Bag-o-Pills and chews a few of them.

"As long as it's platonic," says Max.

"Of course it will be," says Melanie, "I don't think there will be any hot, sweaty sex at Maggie and Mickey's house."

"That's for sure," says Max, "Mickey complains about that all the time."

She thanks him for understanding, "It's kinda nice havn' someone look after me."

Max uses his best 'Rocky' voice, "Duh... Dat's what big brodders are for."

Bo comes in and announces he's arrested Trent's killer.

"Who's the innocent person this time," asks Max.

EJ says it doesn't matter what he thinks, "Why should I trust you? You don't trust me. If you did you would have told me Trent was harassing you." Nicole claims innocence. She says she didn't tell EJ because she didn't know it would come to this. EJ gets nasty and reminds her she is carrying his child.

The leather-clad specimen of thoroughbred maleness stands tall in the doorway and barks orders, "Stand up."

Sami is cornered. She stands and sobs, "Please don't kill me." She turns and looks at the hunk pointing the gun at her.

His muscles ripple under his tight leather jacket as he speaks, "You're Samantha Brady, right? I'm agent Rafe Fernandez, FBI."

Sami stops blithering. She soaks in the view and starts blithering again, but for a different reason. The man of steel goes into action. He checks out Hilda and tries to wake her up.

SNORE! GXORKSNZZZZ! HONK!

Rafe pulls a small flashlight out of those oh-so-good-looking leathers and shines it into Hilda's eye, "She's been drugged."

Sami asks, "Ya think?"

Rafe gets a first aid kit and then finds the tea Hilda was drinking. He looks into the cup, "There is residue in the bottom." Superagent dips a finger into the dregs and puts the solution on the tip of his tongue. He turns to Sami, "You've got a lot of explaining to do."

Phillip comes back to Stephanie carrying a bowl of candy and announces, "Three more trick-or-treaters... Batman, a princess and that dude from Scream with the knife."

"Are you sure the one with the knife wasn't Melanie," asks Stephanie.

Phillip says, "Melanie is just a spoiled young woman."

"Gee," says Stephanie, "I've heard that somewhere before myself."

Phillip insists he's not interested in her. Stephanie wants him to admit it. "You're right," says Phillip, "I am interested in her."

Nick comes up as Bo tells Max and Melanie they arrested Nicole, "I want to go up and tell Caroline. So... Melanie... No hard feelings?"

Melanie says she will file a harassment suit, "No hard feelings that a few million dollars can't take care of."

Nicole backpedals, "I wasn't using my head, and will consider all three of us in the future."

EJ mumbles, "Future... right."

Nicole begs, "Don't say it like that. I am innocent." EJ gets a call and leaves. Hope comes back in. Nicole begs her to help — As a mother. Hope is cold. Nicole claims she is being barbaric.

"You should have thought of that before killing a man in cold blood," says the ice-woman.

Rafe turns to Sami, "You drugged her, didn't you?

Sami whines, "I MAY have put some pills in her tea. She was rude and obnoxious."

Rafe lectures, "Are you stupid? This is witness protection, not a sorority." Sami insists it was a harmless prank. Rafe says if he were the killer she'd be dead, "And when Hilda finishes with you, you will wish I had been the killer."

Hilda wakes, "I... think I was... drugg... YOU! "

EJ comes in and insists Nicole can't go to jail, "She needs a place where she can relax. Hope reminds him there isn't much to do in an 8x8 cell.

"What about the other bitch-ho'z in there with her," asks EJ.

"I think she can handle herself," says Hope.

Hope and EJ go out and EJ asks about Sami. Hope says she can't comment on that case. EJ goes back in with Nicole, who promptly lectures him for caring more about Sami.

Max tells Melanie she's making a mistake. She insists it was Bo and Hope that made the mistake. Bo reminds her she planted the evidence in Stephanie's purse, "Open your eyes Max! She has a mean streak, or you'd still be with Stephanie." Bo leaves. Max thanks Melanie for having a mean streak.

Phillip clarifies what he said, "I meant I FIND her interesting. She's complicated, but just a young woman hiding her insecurities." Stephanie thinks he's deluded. Phillip gets a call from Victor. He hangs up and tells Stephanie they arrested Nicole Walker.

Nicole gets on EJ for being interested in Sami. He blows his stack and says he won't apologize for caring about her, "I SAW A RED DOT ON HER FOREHEAD. FOR A SECOND I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO LOSE JOHNNY'S MOTHER. SHE'S A PART OF MY LIFE AND IF YOU CAN'T ACCEPT THAT WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING IN COMMON EXCEPT THAT CHILD!"

Hilda lectures Sami, "I have guarded snitches that were so nasty they would curl your hair. Compared to them you are a powderpuff who needs to be taught a lesson." Sami backpedals and apologizes. Hilda rants, "Sorry isn't enough you bleached blonde bimbo. I QUIT!" She grabs her things and leaves. Rafe tells Sami she should have begged her to stay. All Sami wants is a professional who can do the job.

"Well, Samantha, maybe they should send a Rottweiler," says Rafe.

"I like dogs," she says, "And everyone calls me Sami." Rafe decides they have to call Roman and tell him what happened. Sami begs him not to. Rafe softens and says he at least has to call command and tell them Hilda resigned, "They will probably send someone outside the Salem talent pool."

"Salem talent pool," repeats Sami, "Isn't that an oxymoron?"

Rafe says, "I feel less sorry for you than the poor schmo who has to baby sit you."

Sami watches a horror flic. Rafe tells her to turn it down as he talks on the phone, "You can't be serious! But sir... yessir..." he hangs up and tells Sami he's Hilda's replacement.

Stephanie says she was so sure the killer was Melanie.

Melanie tells Nick she accepts his offer. He's just glad they get to spend time together. She goes over and tells Max they are leaving and apologizes about Stephanie. Max says he doesn't think their relationship can be fixed. On his way up to see Caroline he stops and thanks Nick for helping his sister.

Nicole reminds EJ of the white picket fence. EJ says he still wants that but says it won't happen unless Nicole accepts Sami as a part of his life, "My son or my daughter isn't going to be born in prison. Whatever happens after that... I'm not sure." EJ walks out. Nicole chases but the guard stops her.

Nicole goes back into the office, "I didn't kill Trent. I swear it was someone else. Boo-hoo."

Nick goes to get the car. Melanie goes over to a table and picks up a butcher knife, "You are a lucky little girl..."

That disguised voice on the phone with Melanie sounded like Nick's to me. It would be ironic if they make Nick the killer of Trent. That would make him two victims and Chelsea two victims huh? I just hope Nick sees through Melanie before she manages to break his heart. I actually hope Melanie did kill Trent, so they will get her off DOOL.

Loved seeing Galen Gering again. He is such a hunk! I hope he will become a regular on DOOL, just not with Sami. She is such a spoiled bwitch that she needs to be left alone with no man in her life at all until she finally matures, if ever.

Now would be a great time for Melanie to visit Nicole and learn that she is her real Mother. It wouldn't surprise me if Nicole then said she was guilty of killing Trent just to save Melanie. And of course, Melanie would let her do that.

The killer will probably end up being Claude though or his goon, or someone from the college Trent taught Physics. Maybe even another woman he scorned?

I am glad Caroline has been cleared now. At least we don't have to see that poor old lady in jail again.

Babyboomer, I agree that the voice on the phone sounded like Nick. I think maybe he saw Melanie kill Trent, and he's "cozying" up to her to try and get her to either slip up or confess.

Prevuze starts out with a major snark attack!
 
”Are you saying you're sorry you met me?"

Max doesn't even have to think about that one, "Perceptive little thing aren't you?"

 
The audience stands up and screams “we’re all sorry he met you!!!”
 
Max says he's glad he found Melanie but she has put him through hell.
 
She’s put the entire audience through hell.
 
"She's a bitch with major bite," says Stephanie.

"Oh," says Phillip, "I see you've noticed her mouthful of teeth, too."

 
I can’t stand Melanie but I must admit she provides mountains of material for excellent Prevuziums!
 
His muscles ripple under his tight leather jacket as he speaks, "You're Samantha Brady, right? I'm agent Rafe Fernandez, FBI."
 
We don’t even need a course in DOOL 101 to know where this is headed.  Sami and the hunkalicious FBI agent are going to get “close”.  I have no doubt the “Guy Manual” as at least a chapter devoted to women and their “baggage”.  It is the rare male that would willingly get involved with a woman with two toddlers and another baby on the way, and this guy is undoubtedly mucho macho poster boy material…as if!  Sami is his dream girl…a brat with three brats.
 
Sami whines, "I MAY have put some pills in her tea. She was rude and obnoxious."

Rafe lectures, "Are you stupid?”

 
Once he gets to know Sami better, he will know just how stupid that question is.
 
Now that Nicole is in the slammer, I hope they leave her there but we know she’ll be out in no time…sigh.  Another great update Prevuze!!!

I'd think every time the intrepid Salem PD arrested someone it would weaken their case eventually. "So, officers Brady, you accused at least five persons of killing Trent. Which one is it?" Not to mention, as babyboomer pointed out, it won't be any of the people they said it was.

Nick invited Melanie to come stay with him. How about asking Aunt Maggie and Uncle Mickey first?

LOL over "I see you've noticed her mouthful of teeth, too." and Nick reaching into the John Black memorial bag-o-pills. HAHAHA

Thanks for the excellent Prevuze!

Man, did Nicole ever nail that one on the head. And took the words right out of my mouth while she was at it.

"She's a bitch with major bite," says Stephanie. "Oh," says Phillip, "I see you've noticed her mouthful of teeth, too."

Nicely snarked, Prevuze.

Bo comes in and announces he's arrested Trent's killer. "Who's the innocent person this time," asks Max.

Almost sprayed the monitor at that one. Why, oh why, do I continue to violate my own #1 Cardinal Rule Of Prevuze - nothing in the mouth while reading?

"They will probably send someone outside the Salem talent pool." "Salem talent pool," repeats Sami, "Isn't that an oxymoron?"

ROFLMAO. The writers HAVE to be sitting around, trying to come up with lines that just beg for Prevuze combacks. How else (besides the obvious) can we explain such lame dialog?

And my HUH?! moment:
The stalker picks the lock. Sami blubbers. The door opens and the intruder barks, "Come out slowly. Hands in the air." Sami cowers behind the couch.

First of all, Rafe didn't know he was going to replace Hilda, so why was he even there? Secondly, why sneak into a safe house and then bark commands like you were busting into some perp's hideout?? If Hilda had been awake her logical course of action would have been to blow him to bits, thinking he was the hit man trying to get to Sami.

Thanks for the Thursday snark-fest Prevuze. You are the best.

Tell the truth Prevuze. You kept waiting for the "bow-chicka-wow-wow" music to start didn't you?

Am I the only one who thinks the relationship between Max and Melanie is a little creepy? He hasn't known her but a couple weeks, and suddenly it's like they grew up together. He's all about the big brother thing.

So now the "dynamic dumb-dumbs" aka Bope, think Nicole killed Trent because 0h-so-honest Trent left a letter basically saying, "If you find this and I'm dead, Nicole did it."

Yeah that'll hold up as evidence in court. Well in a Salem Court it might.

Melanie just irks my nerves looking like she is hopped up on drugs in every one of her scenes on DOOL. I agree that she very well could be Trent's killer. After all, Trent did tell us in one scene that Max didn't have it in him to murder him, but Melanie sure did. That could have been the writer's way of telling us in advance who his killer would be. I think Nick is cozying up to Melanie too, and was the mysterious voice on the phone saying he knew she was in the cemetary and he knows what she did. Nick is just way too smart to get sucked in by Melanie. He's already stated that he is still in love with Chelsea, and she is with him, too. So is this another writer's clue to let us know not to worry about Nick and Melanie hooking up, just to have patience, and Chelsea and Nick will get back together. If so, I hope Chelsea mentally grows up to match her age since being SORASed on DOOL. Now if they would only match Sami's mentality with her actual age? lol

I wondered why Rafe was entering the safe house as well. He did knock first so maybe he thought something was wrong since no one answered the door. Being FBI, he should have known that Hilda retires early every night with earplugs though. I mean they know everything BEFORE they even touch a case. I don't think Sami and Rafe have much of a chance for any long-lasting relationship because none of hers ever last very long. I think she should just be left alone for awhile to finally grow up mentally, and stop being such a spoiled brat all the time. I really hate it when the writers switch up partners though, when you just know they will be back with their meant-to-be partners soon. I am glad it gives Prevuze lots of ammunition to make comments on though because Prevuze does make DOOL so much more interesting to read about than to watch. Thank you, Prevuze, for all the hard work you do for us each day concerning DOOL. You save us having to watch the show but being able to still know what is going on.

Bo gets off the phone with the DA and announces, "The charges against Caroline will be dropped."

Phillip gets a call from Victor. He hangs up and tells Stephanie they arrested Nicole Walker.


Okay, I know this is a rhetorical question but is there no intelligence within Salem law enforcement? Let me get this straight...you're dropping the charges against the person found holding the murder weapon, with her prints all over it and the dead guy's blood all over her? What evidence has come forward to clear her? On top of it, you're going to arrest the dead guy's estranged wife because he wrote a note saying in essence "If I'm dead, my wife did it." GIVE ME A BREAK! Bulldog hit it right on the head - even Mickey Horton is a competent enough lawyer to be able to argue reasonable doubt based on the number of arrests in the case.

Sami watches a horror flic. Rafe tells her to turn it down as he talks on the phone, "You can't be serious! But sir... yessir..." he hangs up and tells Sami he's Hilda's replacement.

Okay DOOL, please give up this STUPID safe house storyline. We all know Sami is not the brightest bulb in the pack, but how many people would go from watching a mayor assassinated to being shot at herself to driving 2 protective custody guards away in about 48 hours or less? Even if it was a major inconvenience, I think most people would still be shaken enough by having had their head in a sniper's cross-hairs a few hours ago to at least be civil to their guards rather than driving them away or drugging them.

Woo, I suppose I'm the only person who adores Melanie. I like mean, obnoxious, people. This is why Chelsea slipped off my favorites since she became a saint. Actually I just like people who come across as honest. No one on this show is honest, they all lie and betray then hide behind the convenient shield of morality. Or the *I did it for us!!!*

I would rather see "she did it because she's a bitch" than "I did it FOR YOOOOUUUU! Forgive me!!"

It wouldn't surprise me if Nicole then said she was guilty of killing Trent just to save Melanie. And of course, Melanie would let her do that.
Buuuuttttt... Nicole doesn't even know Melanie, unless they pull that soap thing where because they're parent and child they have *insta-love* for each other. Also she has a baby. And I don't mind Melanie leaving her to rot, because you shouldn't confess to something you didn't do. Especially murder.

Hopefully Nick doesn't betray Melanie, he's not a Brady. I think...

I just don't understand how anyone could stand Bo and Hope for anymore than 10 minutes at a time let alone make them your favorites.

MORE STEPHANIE WHINING!?
And if she doesn't I don't see how me and Max can work things out.
It's like she doesn't get why she was dumped. Melanie wasn't really the problem, it was the 3 minute secret holding. She could have said 'No Max! I'm going to tell Bo and Hope!' instead she lied... to his face.

Why should I trust you? You don't trust me. If you did you would have told me Trent was harassing you."
Yeah! I mean he told her all those times he went to see Sami behind her back!

"Are you stupid? This is witness protection, not a sorority."
I see Luis is a stellar officer even in this incarnation. Why exactly did he stalk, and break in? Is this a joke between the police and FBI? And why is so apologetic and fragile? Sami was... blah blah blah treason... blah blah blah Stan...

Ugh you know what, this show is just totally ridiculous. I can't even bother anymore today.

Not only Colin and Victor were Nicole's potential victims - she also shot and wounded her sleazy father, Paul. (I got this out of my new soap magazine.)

I was going to comment, too, on the name Rafe. This is almost as good a "soap name" as Dr. Drake Ramoray. Almost.
