Sloppy Seconds

Outside the pub, one of the DiMera minions sasses EJ and EJ gives him both barrels. Once they've established the pawn is going to get with the program, he slinks off with his tail between his legs. Brady watches and wants to know what that is about. EJ says it's none of Brady's concern.

Mia says she will allow Nicole to adopt her baby under one condition: She wants to meet the clueless father. Nicole nearly has a heart attack, "No! You can't!"

Daniel explains Theo's condition to Lexie, "The hematoma is putting pressure on the motor cortex."

"Stop using those fancy-schmancy words," says Lexie, "and put it in terms we mere mortals can understand."

"Think of it as if an ole mule kicked him in the haid," says Daniel.

Lexie loses her patience, "I SAID STOP USING LANGUAGE I CAN'T UNDERSTAND!"


Daniel lays it on the line, "If we don't preform this procedure, Theo will die."

Brady says he is concerned about the DiMera business if it negatively affects Nicole. EJ tells Brady he plays a fairly minor role in Nicole's life, "I don't want to hear it from an ex-junkie who redefined the word venal."

"I most certainly did not," says Brady, "How can you redefine something you don't know the definition of in the first place? I think Nicole doesn't know what kind of guy you really are."

EJ says, "I'm the kind of guy who's morals are so low I'll have casual sex in an elevator and then put up with not having it again for months while she strings me along."

Mia doesn't understand. Nicole says she just can't meet her fiancée now because he's out of town. Mia thinks Nicole is acting weird. She starts to leave but Nicole stops her.

Lexie signs the release papers as Abe rushes up. Abe is out of breath, "What happened?"

"According to Daniel, a mule kicked him," says Lexie, "There is swelling on the brain."

"That's great news," says Abe, "He's our son, but he has a brain." Abe comforts the wicked and irresponsible mother.

Nicole says her fiancée will get home today and she will arrange for Mia to meet him. They agree to meet in an hour at Mia's place. Mia leaves. Nicole grabs her cell phone and goes into action.

EJ and Brady argue. Brady gets the call. Nicole says she has to see him now. Brady excuses himself and leaves.

Chloe and Lucas are inside the pub. EJ comes in and joins them. Chloe flashes her ring, "My fiancée has excellent taste."

EJ is charming, "In women."

"Right," says Chloe, "He just seems to hook up with women who have poor taste in men."

EJ announces he and Nicole are engaged. Chloe bubbles off to call Nicole while EJ joins Lucas. Lucas gets nasty, but EJ tells him he told Sami she is free.

"Why the hell would I want to know that," snorts Lucas.

Abe tries to encourage Mommie Dearest. He wants her to be kind to herself. Hugs.

Lucas rants, "Why would you tell me Sami is free? Am I supposed to beg her to come back? You think I want your sloppy seconds? Why would you tell me this?"

EJ reminds him, "You're the father of two of her children." Lucas says he isn't interested in Sami's life any more because he has moved on.

Brady meets up with Nicole down in the slums. He notices she's not wearing her rubber baby buggy bumper. Nicole says she'll explain about that in a while. Brady guesses she told EJ she lost the baby.

"No," says Nicole, "I told him I lost the padding."

Chloe and Lucas join Kate at the mansion. She announces she's hosting a party tonight. They are, of course, confused, something both of them ought to be used to by now. Kate tells them the party is an engagement party for them.

Stefano calls EJ and tells him about Theo, "Come to the hospital right away."

Abe and Lexie share a tender moment. Then, Abe goes for coffee, "After watching this episode, I need something to keep me awake." Stefano comes up and tells Lexie he has a surgeon on the way. Lexie don' need no stinkin' other doctor. Stefano says doing nothing is driving him crazy. Lexie wants Stefano and his spare doctor to leave her alone.

"I have to do something," says Stefano, "I can't just stand around. I want to (say it with him) be there for you. Alexandra..."

Lexie nukes, "IT'S NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT! LEAVE!"

"No, really," says Stefano, "I insist on having my own personal exorcist flown in from Geneva to work on you."

Nicole says she didn't tell EJ anything. She and Brady bicker and Nicole tells him to go if he's going to be judgmental. Brady is curious about the situation. Inquiring minds want to know what's going on. So would Brady if he had one.

Hope and Bo are at the pub. Hope thinks the visions are related to Bo hitting his head, "Why don't you talk to someone, like a psychiatrist?"

Bo thinks it over, "I'm not the one with an eating disorder."

Flustered Lucas denies he's flustered. Kate asks if this is a bad time. "No," says Lucas, "This is a great time."

"Actually," says Chloe, "It's not a good time for me."

Lexie wants Stefano to leave. They argue. Daniel staggers into the scene drooling and giving his thousand-yard stare, with the word "DEATH" carved into his forehead.

Lexie sees Daniel's forlorn blank stare and completely loses it, "OMG! NO! OMG!"

Having properly set the scene to give the impression that Theo bought the farm, Daniel says, "Theo survived surgery. The next 24 hours will be critical. I'm optimistic he'll pull through." Oh, the relief! Hugs and tears.

Daniel leaves and Lexie shifts gears from depressive to manic. Abe is understanding and encourages her to forgive herself.

Hope chases down Bo, "I think your visions are tormenting you."

"I'm looking at you right now," says Bo, "That's a vision that would torment anyone."

Nicole 'splains what's going on. Brady asks, "What do you need me for?"

Nicole says, "I'll get to that."

Brady says, "You need to get to that NOW." Nicole asks him to pretend to be her fiancée. Brady refuses.

EJ joins Lexie and Abe. She chases Abe off to call Bo and Hope. Lexie gives her 'taking things for granted' speech, "I want you to go home right now and hug your son."

"You think he's at home," asks EJ, "We've been looking for him for weeks and can't find him."

EJ leaves and Daniel comes up. Lexie tells him they all need to express their love while they have the chance. Daniel cops a feel. "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING," screams Lexie.

"That's the way I express my love," says Dr. Perv.


Lucas wants to know why Chloe is hesitant. Chloe flashes back to moments with Daniel, "I just don't want Kate to put herself out." Then she caves in like the Indianapolis Colts in overtime, "You're right. Let's go ahead and have the party." Kate is thrilled and says she has one more guest to invite. As she leaves, she says she's going to the hospital to invite Daniel in person.

Lucas turns to Chloe, "Thanks for sparing my mom's feelings, but I want to know why you didn't want to have the party. Is it about us? Are you having second thoughts?"

Prevuze

Brady says he is sick of lying. Nicole begs. She lays it on thick. Without her baby she feels empty. In order to feel whole she needs Mia's baby.

Ciara joins Bo and Hope. Bo asks for Hope's support. Hope agrees to play along for now.

Lucas senses doubt in Chloe, "You're not ready to get married are you?"

"That's not it," says Chloe, "I'm just not ready to join the schmuck of the month club."

Kate finds Daniel at the hospital.

EJ finds Stefano and tells him he took care of the overseas situation. Stefano wants him to handle the Central American situation. "Consider it done," says EJ. Stefano pats his shoulder and walks off.

Bo offers to take Ciara home. "Oh, I just can't," says Ciara, "I have to get back to playing in traffic." Abe calls and gives her the news about Theo. Hope gets off the phone and makes the announcement. Family hug.

Abe and Lexie talk to unconscious Theo. "It's just like having a conversation with him when he's conscious," says Lexie, "only with his eyes closed." Stefano watches and walks off.

Daniel tells Kate what happened to Theo. "Only time will tell if he will be OK." Kate thinks this isn't the time to talk about parties. She starts to leave but Daniel wants to know what's up. Kate invites him to the party. Daniel zones.

Chloe goes into flashback overdrive. She tells Lucas she's not having second thoughts. She's just feeling guilty for not helping Kate with the party, "I feel spoiled sometimes. I've never doubted my decision to marry you."

Lucas says, "We will make each other sooooo happy for all the Days Of Our Lives."

Mia walks up to Brady and Nicole, "Is this your fiancée?"

I think all the men in Salem have had lobotomies. Or maybe medicine head? The only one who I think might possibly know what's going on with their significant other is EJ. Maybe he actually knows what Nicole-the-hole is really up to and that she really lost the baby months ago but he's playing along until the right moment? Or am I just giving EJ too much credit???

"I don't want to hear it from an ex-junkie who redefined the word venal."

"I most certainly did not," says Brady, "How can you redefine something you don't know the definition of in the first place?"


How true, how true!!

I think Nicole doesn't know what kind of guy you really are."

EJ says, "I'm the kind of guy who's morals are so low I'll have casual sex in an elevator and then put up with not having it again for months while she strings me along."


HAHAHAHAHA…another gotcha!!!!!!!!

Mia thinks Nicole is acting weird.

Mia has interacted with Nicole for about five minutes and has accurately determined that Nicole is more than a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic. On the other hand, the Cambridge (or is it Oxford because the writers have used both schools which proves they have no idea where DOOL is going) educated attorney can’t figure out that Nicole is stringing him along with a fake baby belly. Geez!

"My fiancée has excellent taste."

EJ is charming, "In women."

"Right," says Chloe, "He just seems to hook up with women who have poor taste in men."


Duck Prevuze!!! Jujubes coming at three o’clock high!!!!

Stefano comes up and tells Lexie he has a surgeon on the way. Lexie don' need no stinkin' other doctor.

Any reasonable person would want a second opinion for a procedure as serious as brain surgery. Whoops, sorry, we’re talking about Lexie.

Hope thinks the visions are related to Bo hitting his head, "Why don't you talk to someone, like a psychiatrist?"

Bo thinks it over, "I'm not the one with an eating disorder."


The ref puts his hands on his hips and hits Prevuze with a game misconduct.

Mia walks up to Brady and Nicole, "Is this your fiancée?"

…and the craziness continues. Dr. Baker told Nicole that it is difficult to find a mother in her seventh month of pregnancy. Since the elevator romp occurred on the Fourth of July, that would mean that Nicole’s fake rubber baby bumper should be just entering its sixth month. On the other hand, Sami’s pregnancy is in the seventh month. Since the DOOL writers are certain that all the viewers are math challenged and total idiots, they will gleefully pen a scenario that will have both babies born at the same time. Well, we’re not such idiots that we didn’t see this coming from a mile away.

I was a little disappointed not to see "Carmine" on Lucas' chest. Great pics, great re-cap. I'd hit Prevuze with an unsportsmanlike penalty regarding the Hope & Bo conversation, but quite frankly, someone needs to give that woman a cheesesteak or two. GO EAGLES!!!!

Another snooze-fest of an episode I see. Only Prevuze and its great prevuisms kept me awake during this one. For example:

Abe is out of breath, "What happened?" "According to Daniel, a mule kicked him," says Lexie.

There were also the awesome pictures of Chloe’s “firsts” and Lucas’s tats (except you missed Carmine, Bulldog, he’d be crushed). [And I see someone else noticed this lapse as well. lolol]

Not to mention the always insightful sports commentary:

Then she caves in like the Indianapolis Colts in overtime.

Look at it this way, Prevuze (the best sports blog on the internet), the pain is over for this year – in the football arena, not (unfortunately) in DOOL.

Thanks for the laughs this morning crew.

Lucas darling, for Chloe to have second thoughts she would have to be capable of having first thoughts.

Anon - yes you are giving EJ too much credit. There may have been a time to appreciate EJ for more than his looks but that time is gone. They have made him into a character as stupid as Lucas.

This just in...Lucas says he isn't interested in Sami's life any more. The Lumis commit suicide.

I failed to stifle my laughter when I hit "Daniel staggers into the scene drooling and giving his thousand-yard stare, with the word "DEATH" carved into his forehead." A typical Salem doctor maneuver to scare the pants off of the anxious loved ones. I can't wait to see it because I'm SURE Prevuze did not exaggerate this!

I also LOL over the great censored link as well as "Bo thinks it over, "I'm not the one with an eating disorder." and "Abe and Lexie talk to unconscious Theo. "It's just like having a conversation with him when he's conscious." HAHAHAHA

Great Prevuze today!

What a total snoozefest of an eppisode we have tomorrow. Thanks for warning me Prevuze. I think I'll take a well deserved nap dring DOOL tomorrow. And then I'll do my income taxes, and I'll be ready to snooze again during Thursday's eppisode. Boy, I thought 2008 was bad. Not so! Looks like 2009 promises to be even worse as far as the stories go! Lucas tatoo pic was a riot!LOL

Yesterday Kate "broke up" with Daniel because she "needed her space". OK. Got it. Not dating the perv anymore.

Kate knows Chloe is uncomfortable around Dr. Dan.

Yet, Kate hightails it over to the hospital to PERSONALLY invite Dan to her surprise engagement party for Chloe & poor Lucluless?

I realize the writers just want an excuse for more god-awful flashbacks and sleezy, longing looks between Dhoe, but this is just stupid on so many levels.

Kate can't stay away from the hospital? She has an adversion to phones? She just wants to stir things up by getting Dhoe in the same room?

Just had to vent.

It's actually pretty telling when I read 'Ciara joins them' and I thought for a second 'Who??' and then I thought 'oh the girl!!'

Re- EJ, no character on the show is that smart unless it fits the plot. So he may figure it out, but only if the show wants him to, no matter how obvious.

Lucas says he's over Sami... until Chloe shatters his already damaged heart. EJ says he has 'freed' Sami... until he realizes Nicole is crazy. So I guess later this year they'll be fighting over her again.

Maybe Luis... Rafe will join in on the fun. He seems pretty rational, but then he'll start drinking the water everyone else is drinking in Salem.
