Hang... Scream... Hang... Scream...

Melanie fights Nick and struggles to jump. Bo kicks down the door and he and Hope rush in.

Prevuze

Melanie goes over the railing.

SSCCRREEAAMM!!!

In a maneuver defying the laws of physics, Melanie grabs the ledge as she falls.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Brady meets Nicole at the gym. Nicole pumps iron as Brady comes up, "Man," says Brady, "I didn't know they even made one-pound dumbbells. Are you sure that's a good idea?"

"What," asks Nicole, "Being pregnant?"

Stefano and EJ talk about all the excitement going on in EJ's life. If he's got exciting things going on, he must be moonlighting somewhere besides acting on DOOL. Stefano says he needs to do research on the future DiMera heir. He says he wants gender and names. EJ tells him they don't know the baby's sex and haven't decided on a name. Stefano says this isn't acceptable.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Her hand slips off the ledge. The audience cheers.

Bo catches her at the last second, "DON'T LOOK DOWN!" He takes five minutes telling her he'll pull her up. Bat-Phillip heads up the steps to help with the rescue. Hope holds a gun on Nick as he yells out to Melanie and tells her he won't let her fall. Hope coaxes Nick back into the room.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Abe thanks people for coming to the pub to support whatever his latest cockamamie scheme is. A woman walks up to Lexie, "Hi! I'm Ferrel... Donna."

Lexie returns the greeting, "We have something in common. I act pretty feral myself sometimes. "

It seems Donna leads the parents support group for autism. She asks Lexie why she never came back after the first time she was there. "Crazy schedule," says Lexie, "Crazy person... crazy schedule." Abe comes up and we find out he knows Donna from all of her civic activities. Lexie is amazed that Donna is such a super mom. Abe talks with her as Lexie sulks away like a skanky old feral cat.

Nicole is perky, "Healthy body healthy baby. Thank God it's not healthy mind healthy baby."

Brady reminds her they are both engaging in abstinence from all things bad. At the thought of abstinence, Nicole gets a pain. Other than Brady.

Stefano and EJ argue about what EJ should be doing for the baby. "I like Nicole," says Stefano, "I like her self-deprecating humor, her earthiness and she's not too bad to look at, but she has a reputation. You're not thinking with your head, Elvis." EJ reads the documents Stefano has drawn up, which say Stefano will have visitation rights in the event of estrangement. EJ flings the papers.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Bat-Phillip finally gets to the balcony. Hope follows to watch. Nick grabs his pills and bolts. Hope sees him heading out and runs back into the room, "FREEZE!"

Nick turns, stares and drools, "Huh?"

"Never mind, " says Hope, "I saw a cop on TV say that once. I thought it sounded cool. You have the right to remain silent..."

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Chelsea comes into the pub and finds Lexie, "I came in for takeout. I've found it's more efficient to take the chowdah to the emergency room at the hospital and eat it there. It saves time. " She gives Lexie a Redbook magazine with autism material in it. Abe comes up. Chelsea leaves. Lexie tells Abe she thinks the gathering went well, "Abe, I've been thinking..."

"God help us all," gasps Abe.

Lexie says, "I don't know how these people do all they do. How am I supposed to do it all?"

"You don't have to do it all," says Abe, "Doing anything except whining would be a good start."

Turns out, Nicole's pain was just Junior-Junior #1 kicking. Brady says he has been hoping she, EJ and him can go out sometime. Nicole asks, "Well, how long are you planning to stay in Salem?"

Brady says, "Maybe permanently." Nicole makes a face. Brady asks, "You don't like that idea?"

Nicole is blunt, "Why would I care?"

EJ and Stefano continue to argue. Stefano says his children are a bunch of ingrates but he is trying to improve his relationship with them. EJ says he and Nicole don't want their child bound to a destructive and dangerous relationship. Stefano decides to have the chef make a feast for the evening's dinner. He tells EJ to cancel his reservations at Chez Rouge.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.

Bo finally pulls her up. Sirens wail in the background.

Hope reads Nick his rights. Nick just wants to know Melanie is OK.

Brady is impressed with Nicole's candor. Nicole backs off and says she wishes him the best. He tells her the talk she had with John didn't do any good.

Stefano has arranged the dinner. He says he wants Nicole to realize she has nothing to fear from the grandfather of her child. EJ mocks and imitates Stefano. Stefano says, "You joke all you want; the fact is you are my son which gives you the insight you have into me. Because we are so deeply connected I will offer you a once in a lifetime opportunity. You get the drumstick tonight at dinner." Stefano says he wants EJ to take the reigns of the family business and be his true heir.

Abe and Lexie sit at a table and he tells her what a great person she is and what a wonderful job she is doing as Theo's mom. All politicians lie. Lexie beats herself up.

Chelsea gets a call from Stephanie, "Where are you?"

Stephanie says, "Police station."

Chelsea asks, "What?"

Stephanie says, "You should come down here, Chelse, now if you can. I know you wanted to go to the hospital with your chowdah, but if you come here, maybe it will save time when you press charges against Caroline for giving you ptomaine poisoning. "

Nick sits in Bo's office and drones. He admits killing Trent, but says he did it to protect Melanie. Hope asks about the phone calls. Nick says he did it because he needed her near him. He says Melanie went to the cemetery with a knife and might have killed Trent if he didn't. Bo lectures, "Did you hear what you just said? You just threw her under the bus."

A gal in the audience yells, "Don't we wish!"

Nick appeals to Hope as family. Hope agrees to help, "But justice has to be served."

Brady says he appreciates Nicole trying to get John to work with him, but that didn't go very well, "As far as the abstinence things goes, if you ever need support give me a call." Brady leaves. Nicole stares.

Stefano offers EJ the position of counsel with DiMera shipping. EJ rejects. Stefano says, "Well then, the party is over. You have been living in the lap of luxury. No more free ride." EJ changes his tune and accepts Stefano's offer. They shake, hug and bond.

Max joins Phillip and Stephanie at the cop shop. Chelsea comes up. The brat whines, "OMG what's happened to Nick? I blame myself!"

Abe and Donna talk. Lexie stares like a feral hyena waiting for the lions to leave her the carcass scraps.

Stefano, EJ and Nicole sit together in the rumpus room. Stefano says, "Nicole, you light up a room. In fact that's not all you do to a room when you come back from your workout and don't shower." He also tells her Elvis has accepted his offer. Nicole tries to act pleased.

Chelsea thinks Nick wound up with Willow because of her. Melanie comes out and stares her patented blank stare.

Inside Bo's office, Nick says he wants his phone call. Bo hands him the phone. Nick calls, "Hi, it's me. I'd like to cancel my pay-per-view order for this evening."

Bo hugs Hope, "My first arrest as police commissioner..."

Hope corrects him, "If I remember right, it's your first arrest, period."

"I'm sorry, Fancy Face."

Lexie zones and bawls. Abe wants to know what's wrong. Lexie tells him about the Redbook article and says it talks about other mothers who were inspired by the diagnosis but all Lexie has done is feel sorry for herself. Donna comes up and asks Lexie if she would join the task force. "Oh, no," says Lexie, "I couldn't possibly do it. I don't have time." Suddenly, Lexie flips like a feral deer getting hit by a Mack Truck, "By golly, I'll do it!"

Nicole tries to put on a happy face. EJ apologizes for not discussing it with her before making the decision. He asks if she has objections. Of course not. Stefano toasts a bright and promising future. He leaves them to have their dessert in private. Nicole tells EJ she knows he will do what is right for their family. EJ decides doing the right thing comes later. Right now he's interested in doing her.

Melanie thanks Phillip for saving her life. Hugs. Tears. The crowd standing around the police station stares daggers at Melanie. Chelsea asks, "Aren't you gonna ask about Nick?"

"What about him," asks Melanie, "I know he's going to jail."

"Because of you," snorts Stephanie.

Inside Bo's office, Nick asks to see Melanie. Bo says no and tells him to get his attorney there. Maggie barges in. Hugs.

Abe gets off the phone and tells Lexie, "They've captured Trent Robbins' killer... Nick Fallon."

Maggie and Nick have a sob-fest. Maggie bawls, "I blame myself. I knew about the pills. I should have (say it with her) been there for you." Maggie completely falls apart and turns to Bo, "They won't convict him will they?"

Bo can't bear to answer. He picks up the phone, "Sam? Make sure the gas chamber is cleaned, polished and ready to go."

Maggie screams, "NOOOOO!"

Nicole and EJ decide to take things upstairs. EJ says he has a surprise for her tomorrow.

Max lectures everyone for blaming Melanie. She reminds them she is the victim. Chelsea says Melanie doesn't get it, "You lied and obstructed justice."

Stephanie chimes in, "You pushed Nick over the edge."

Chelsea takes over, "You used him and ruined his life."

A referee steps in, throws a yellow flag and penalizes the girls team for piling on.

Mugshots.

Maggie tells Nick Mickey is on his way. Bo picks up the phone, "Sam? You'd better put a rush order on that gas chamber work."

On the way out Nick tells Melanie he loves her and never meant to hurt her. They haul him off.

Chelsea walks up to Melanie, "Can't even say you're sorry or care for him too? You're pathetic."

Melanie turns to her big brother, "You're not mad at me, are you Max?" Max hugs.

Outside, Mad Dog Fallon stares as Hope takes him away.

Today's favorite comment is brought to you by letter "B". The Bo and door comment was hilarious! Prevuze, how long does it take you to come up with this stuff? My guess? The worse the writing the easier the daily prevuze?

I was kind of liking the darker side of Nick. I love dimples, and I loved NuJohn - why is Days killing this for me?

Is anyone else annoyed by the Lexie/Abe/Autism storyline? I have nothing against well written storylines dealing with real issues (cough, cough) but well need I say more?

What do you know…Melanie is actually capable of doing two things at once.

Stefano says he needs to do research on the future DiMera heir.

Does this include doing a little research on the mother to be? I wonder what Stefano would think about having a daughter-in-law who once was a porn star. That would be quite a highlight on the DiMera family resume.

Brady reminds her they are both engaging in abstinence from all things bad.

That must mean they are not watching DOOL. They catch up on the “action” by reading Prevuze.

You're not thinking with your head, Elvis.

Of course, he is Stefano…just not with the one sitting on his shoulders.

"Did you hear what you just said? You just threw her under the bus."

A gal in the audience yells, "Don't we wish!"


I don’t care…bus, car, train, pile of recycled DOOL scripts…just throw her under something and get rid of her!!!

Stephanie chimes in, "You pushed Nick over the edge."

Chelsea takes over, "You used him and ruined his life."

A referee steps in, throws a yellow flag and penalizes the girls team for piling on.


Maybe they can form a tag team in a steel cage match with Melanie. That would certainly be worth the price of admission.

Thanks for another great hump day Prevuze. Oh, yes, and that sexual harassment photo is hysterical!!!

Cfish - thanks for providing our much needed Belch updates. The car wreck was a classic.

If he's got exciting things going on, he must be moonlighting somewhere besides acting on DOOL.

Wish he’d tell us where the exciting stuff is.

"You don't have to do it all," says Abe, "Doing anything except whining would be a good start."

From Abe’s lip’s to God’s ears.

“You have the right to remain silent..."

Melanie hangs.

Melanie screams.


Could Hope please go out to the balcony and let Mel know she has the right to do the same? Just asking…

Abe thanks people for coming to the pub to support whatever his latest cockamamie scheme is.

Hey! Abe! You’re apparently the Mayor now. (No interval between the election and when you take office I guess.) Shouldn’t you be having these official things at City Hall? Just asking…

Suddenly, Lexie flips like a feral deer getting hit by a Mack Truck.

Darned good thing I didn’t have any liquid in my mouth at that one. Love all this “feral” stuff, but meant to ask at the last one. Does a “non-feral” hyena even exist? Just asking…

Maggie tells Nick Mickey is on his way. Bo picks up the phone, "Sam? You'd better put a rush order on that gas chamber work."

Poor Nick. He’s doomed now.

Great Prevuze. I'm all ready to take on any feral crazies now!

I think Melanie should be charged with a crime too. Nick went nuts over her. I hope they get him off on an insanity plea. I cannot stand Melanie and hope she leaves DOOL if they don't charge her.

Aw, shucks, you figured out my formula. Actually, we have to hold back. With this show, there could be a Prevuzism for just about every line.

I disagree, Anon. Melanie hasn't been my favorite character and isn't totally blameless but she didn't force Nick to sit and drool over her website like an obsessed pervert or jam pills and booze down his throat. Everyone wants to give him a free pass because he's a - say it reverently here - Horton! Anyone related to Hope and Maggie can't be insane or guilty.

I don't mind the autism storyline if they'd just GET ON WITH IT. Are we going to have these same conversations with Lexie and Abe until Theo is 25?? (Of course if Theo is SORAS'd in typical DOOL fashion that could be next week.)

I loved this Prevuism: "My first arrest as a police commissioner. Hope corrects him, "If I remember right, it's your first arrest, period." And I can just see the numbskull kicking in an unlocked door. HAHAHA

Excellent pictures and Prevuze today. Thanks! :D

Melanie fights Nick and struggles to jump.

Okay, so if she was going to jump anyway, why doesn't she just let go and save everybody a lot of trouble?????

PLEASE tell me I won't be forced to watch another barf-inducing EJ and Nicole sex scene. I had to leave the room for the last one. Loved the "Bra and Panties" pic!

Anonymous tnchargerfan said...

Oh, and I almost forgot-if they can't give Abe and Lexie anything better to do, get them off screen. If I were Theo, I'd scream every time Lexie came near me, too.
I don't mind the autism storyline, if it were being handled well. But Lexie and Abe rehash the same garbage over and over again. I have my doubts that they even get new scripts anymore.

Great pics and prevuisms today! Loved the Shawn pic. I am so sick of Melanie. Get her off the show already!

Shouldn't that have read. . .

DOOL drags.
The audience screams.

Meanwhile Yahoo News reports that
Days of Our Lives has been picked up through September 2010, and maybe September 2011.

Yayyy, now the writers can relax and take their time with the story lines instead of rushing through them like they have been. . .

I wonder if he will ever kill again?

Okay on today's show I have to admit Melanie can act when she wants too. Crazy Nick is soo convincing. However as I read for tomorrow's show looks like Niho EJ hour again. I am really tired of seeing her on the screen. That baby will not change her. She sees money money money having a Dimera heir.That bedroom scene with her and Ej had nothing going on. I almost had to use my barf bag but I ff the scene(s). I know there are some Niho and Ej fans out there (why I don't know but to each there own) She makes me sick. Once a w*&%$ always a w$#@* no matter what the writers try to do with her character. That scene reminded me of a porno. And that dress she had on was terrible.It was way to short to be wearing pregnant. Enough venting. Dena lose the porn star with Ej or lose me. I think she looks great with the new Brady though. Give me Ejami

I must agree with the last comment. Watching EJ and Nicole is like watching a bad porn, except that Nicole keeps her Victoria Secret ensemble on. I think they must do major stuffing of the push-up bra to make it look like she has real boobs. Do they write that in the script? Ouch, me bad! I think the Prevuze snarkiness is rubbing off on the fans!
