The Inquisition

Mia calls Nicole and says she wants to talk about her baby. Nicole isn't feeling so talkative.

We pan through the halls of justice in the Salem courthouse, where Bo meets brooding Hope, who tells him she can't deal with what HE did. Never mind she nearly blew Kayla to kingdom come. Bo is upset she hasn't been returning his calls, "We're gonna have to talk about this at some point."

Hope says, "Maybe not for a long time. Maybe never."

Prevuze

Patch catches Kayla trying to get out of bed to go testify at Hope's hearing.

Phillip meets Melanie at the pub and asks what she's doing there. She tells him she's a little bombed, but that's because she just lost her job. For most people it's because they've been drinking. Phillip accuses, "You've done something."

Innocent little Melanie asks, "Me?"

EJ is on the phone with Harold, who tells him the formula works. Mary busts in. He asks her to move his things back into the master bedroom. Mary leaves and EJ tells Sydney, "We are supposed to be a family and it's time we started acting like one." Translation: EJ figures he'll soon be back in the saddle again, so to speak.

Nicole hesitates and flashes back to the switcheroo, "Mia, I can't tell you about your baby."

Brady threatens Baker and roughs him up. Baker swears he will leave Nicole alone but says he didn't realize anyone else knew the truth. He insists Nicole forced him to do what he did. Brady gets nasty. Baker asks what we are all wondering, "Why do you care so much about Nicole?"

"She's the best grandmother I ever had," says Brady.

Nicole says she can't tell Mia about her baby because she's not her baby any more, in more ways than one, "Do not call here again! Ever!"

If this were reality, Nicole would hang up and that would be that. But since this is DOOL, EJ walks in and hears Nicole's rant, "Who are you talking to?"

Helicopter husband Patch hovers. Kayla says, "I want to testify so Bo and Hope will stay together."

Patch asks, "Do you hate your brother that much?"

Hope beats the dead, dead, really dead horse of Bo's visions. Bo grovels, "I screwed up, when I said 'I do.'" Hope says she is tired of Bo's broken promises.

Roman and Abe walk into the lion's den. They sense just a bit of tension. Roman asks, Are we interrupting?"

"No," says Ice-Woman, "We're finished." She turns and leaves.

Brady tells Baker he's just a friend of Nicole's. Baker tells him he should get out of her life, too, "When it comes to Nicole Walker, you sir, are not only blind, you're a fool."

"That's not true," says Brady, "I'm not blind."

Nicole tells EJ it was a telemarketer on the phone, "Believe me, he won't call again, but the aluminum siding will be installed Monday." EJ smooches her and leaves.

Mia calls again. Nicole tires to brush her off. Mia says, "I can't figure you out. Sometimes you seem like you're the nicest person and sometimes you're not. I'm thinking I should come home and take my baby back."

Stephanie pushes Melanie and Phillip apart. She gives them both a warning for unsportsmanlike conduct. Melanie gets a call. EJ tells her he checked on the formula she gave him and found out it looks legitimate.

Melanie beams, "Oh, Max, I am so proud of you!"

"So I assume you can't talk," says EJ.

"Gee," asks Melanie, "What tipped you off?"

"I checked my driver's license," he says, "and apparently my name isn't Max." They arrange to meet at the pier. Melanie hangs up and announces she has to go. Phillip asks where. She reminds him she doesn't work with him any more.

Brady and Chelsea come in. Phillip asks Max if he just called his sister. Max says no and Phillip hightails it after Melanie.

Max takes drink orders from the girls. Chelsea orders a diet water. after Max leaves, Stephanie tells Chelsea about Phillip and Melanie, and what it's doing to hew own relationship with him.

EJ meets Melanie and the new souped up pier set. He hands her an envelope full of cash. Melanie says she wants a deal in writing before she gives him the other half of the formula. EJ wants to know why she jumped horses in the middle of the stream. He says loyalty is very important to him.

Mia tells Nicole her career isn't going so well. Nicole encourages her to give it a chance and let go of the baby, "No more calls. Your baby will thank you someday. Goodbye." Nicole hangs up. Brady shows up at the door demanding to know what she and Baker did that he didn't know about.

Roman, Bo, Abe and Hope have joined the thugs sitting around the table conducting the Salem Inquisition. Roman is on the hot seat. He runs through the incident and describes the scenario that led to Hope plugging Kayla. They call on Bo to testify. Bo tells them what happened. One of the meanies at the table asks, "Under the circumstances, did the rules allow Ms. Brady to fire at will in this situation?"

Bo clears his throat, "As you know, I'm not too familiar with the rules, but if I remember correctly, the regulations on this require a direct verbal command from the ranking officer on the scene before an officer can fire a gun."

Meano growls, "Did detective Brady receive such and order?"

Bo is cornered, "No, she did not."

"You make this admission even through she is your wife," asks Meano.

"WAS my wife would be more accurate," says Bo.

EJ assures Melanie the injunction won't really be a problem. He is curious about who helped her gather the information. "He doesn't know he helped says Melanie."

"How did you manage that," asks EJ.

"He has the brain of a mayfly." says Melanie. Suddenly Melanie reconsiders her hurtful remark and apologizes to mayflies everywhere.

Phillip walks up and finds them together, "Now why am I not surprised?"

Bo tries to defend Hope but Meano shuts him up.

"You've got to do it," screams Kirk.

Scotty gasps, "But cap'n, I canno' change the laws of physics!"

"We have no choice," says Kirk, "You must!"

"The dilithium crystals will explode!"

"Scotty," barks Kirk, "I'm giving you a direct order!"

Scotty, against his better judgment, pushes the lever. Patch and Kayla disappear from her hospital room and reappear in the inquisition chamber. Scotty hyperventilates, "I'da sworn it was impossible to transport a woman in a wheelchair."

"You've saved the universe again," says Kirk.

Meanwhile, back in the morgue, Doc examines Sleazo and looks up, "He's dead, Jim."


Back in the inquisition chamber, Kayla demands to testify on Hope's behalf.

Max brings the drinks. The gals give him the silent treatment. Stephanie leaves. Max rants about Melanie. He insists the only one screwing up Stephanie's life is Phillip.

Phillip makes accusations. EJ tells him to cut to the chase and call the police if he thinks he's discovered industrial espionage. Phillip stands silent. Vindicated EJ leaves.

Phillip grabs Melanie's purse and digs out the envelope. He asks her what all the cash is about.

Nicole tells Brady to stay out of things. Brady asks, "Did you do something more than get Mia's baby away from her?"

Nicole says, "Drop it."

Brady yells, "No. Tell me what happened now."

Bo, Abe and Roman stand outside and rant about the kangaroo court.

Back inside, Kayla testifies that the only person to blame for her getting shot is Sleazo.

"And Bo," says Hope, "Don't forget Bo."

Meano wants the record to show Kayla is related to Hope by marriage.

"Not any more," says Hope.

Stephanie comes up as Max badmouths Phillip. She tells him not to speak that way about Phillip in her presence. "Fine," says Max, "There's no need for me to tell you what a piece of scum your boyfriend is."

Phillip confronts Melanie, "How did you do it?"

Melanie giggles, "You're just so funny when you're totally clueless."

Brady continues to grill Nicole. Nicole continues to bob, weave and evade, "Who's going to tell you the truth, the gambling addict or some gold-digging, baby-switching ho you know and care about?"

Bo, Hope and Abe thank Kayla for her magnanimous testimony. Patch wheels her off. Hope comes out and gives Bo the look of death.

Yo-yo Stephanie leaves again. Max says he thinks Chelsea thinks he's still hung up on Stephanie. Chelsea doesn't buy it when he insists he's not.

Melanie taunts Phillip and giggles. Phillip makes threats. He tosses the envelope onto the ground. Melanie picks it up, "I'm never too proud to pick up money." As she goes she turns and tells him it doesn't have to be this way.

Brady says he hopes he and Nicole will always be friends. Nicole asks him to trust her. She tells him just to be her friend and not worry. Brady says he can do that. She tells him to get out before EJ comes home. Brady leaves. Nicole grabs her phone, calls Baker and scolds him for talking to Brady. Baker tells her Brady tracked him down, "Why didn't you tell me about this other guy you're sleeping with?"

Nicole insists they are just friends. Baker wonders when she is going to tell Brady about the switcheroo. "Never," says Nicole.

Baker says, "If he weren't so crazy in love with you he would have given up a long time ago." Nicole rants and hangs up.

Apparently hell will freeze over before Hope ever talks to Bo again. However, when it does, it will be a lot warmer than the hallway outside the inquisition room. Hope walks up to Bo and gives him a look that could kill. Clueless Bo asks, "What happened?" Hope gives him her badge.

Max doesn't want Chelsea telling him how he should feel. Chelsea rants, "You talking about Phillip and Stephanie all the time is really boring."

"This is DOOL," says Max, "What did you expect?" Max says he feels like he's on trial. Chelsea starts to storm out but Max stops her. He tells her this has to do with his sister not himself and Stephanie. Chelsea brings it all around to Max' friendship with her.

Max is clueless. Frustrated Chelsea shouts, "Max, I shouldn't have to spell this out for you. You should just know."

Max gives her a blank stare. Chelsea decides maybe she does have to spell it out for him, "Y-o-u s-h-o-u-l-d j-u-s-t k-n-o-w. I am a normal person with normal needs. Why wouldn't I want something more?"

Melanie tells Phillip there is something he can do to fix things. He just has to make a gesture of good faith. Phillip doesn't' understand. Melanie says, "I think you know what I mean. What will it be?"

Nicole asks Sydney why things are getting so complicated. EJ walks in and sees she's in her nightgown. He says he thinks its a little early to go to bed. She attacks him, "Make love to me, EJ, now."

EJ gasps, "You know you can't do that. You just had a baby."

EJ is at a total loss for what to do, so he consults the guy manual, "She'll live. Go for it."

Finally a word to describe my phobia....Friggin' Triska-DOOL-aphobia - fear of viewing crap on Friday the 13th. I will promptly go hide under a rock where Melanie slithered out from!

With a metropolis as “huge” as Salem, the police department undoubtedly has a physiatrist on staff to help officers handle the types of issues facing Hope. In the line of duty, cops shot people, and it’s traumatic. Unfortunately, it’s part of the job. Deal with it Hope. Cut out the histrionics, give up the blame game, and get over it.

Phillip meets Melanie at the pub and asks what she's doing there. She tells him she's a little bombed.

Melanie is 18 year old, and no one at the pub carded her. Instead of blaming Bo for doing something that was her own fault, Hope should be on duty nailing the server for selling liquor to someone under the age of 21.

Baker asks what we are all wondering, "Why do you care so much about Nicole?"

"She's the best grandmother I ever had," says Brady.


The bigger question is…why does anyone care about Nicole?

"When it comes to Nicole Walker, you sir, are not only blind, you're a fool."

"That's not true," says Brady, "I'm not blind."


It sounds like Dr. Baker and Victor have a lot in common. They're both smarter than the average Salemite. Too bad that's not saying much.

Max takes drink orders from the girls. Chelsea orders a diet water.

Prevuze, Chelsea is going to say good bye to Salem really soon so you’re going to be forced to double up on your Hope zingers.

She attacks him, "Make love to me, EJ, now."

EJ gasps, "You know you can't do that. You just had a baby."

EJ is at a total loss for what to do, so he consults the guy manual, "She'll live. Go for it."


Poor EJ. The writers extracted all of his brain cells to make the “Nicole and her fake rubber baby bumper storyline”, ahem, plausible. Give me a second…before I continue, I need to carefully remove my tongue from my cheek...OK, I’m fine now. Unfortunately, the writers couldn’t figure out how to remove the viewers’ brain cells because no one is buying into this mess.

Friggin' Triska-DOOL-aphobia - fear of viewing crap on Friday the 13th

Thanks Prevuze for giving a name to this dreaded affliction! When viewing DOOL tonight, I’ll remove the ladder standing over my chair. I certainly wouldn’t want to tempt fate! Have a great TGIF everyone!!!

OMG! I never thought about it that way. He’s right! Perhaps he wants to move back into the Dr. Dan zone.

Hope beats the dead, dead, really dead horse of Bo's visions.

ROFL

One of the many HUH!?! moments today:
Melanie says she wants a deal in writing before she gives him the other half of the formula.

If EJ only had half of the formula, how could Harold test it and tell EJ “it works”?

A new one for me – a Prevuze HUH?! moment:
Suddenly Melanie reconsiders her hurtful remark and apologizes to mayflies everywhere.

Self-absorbed Melanie realizing she hurt someone(thing)’s feelings? Really now, Prevuze. That’s pretty hard to swallow.

The entire Star Trek riff had me LMAO! Nice break in the (in)action. I didn't think Prevuze would top that one and then reached the phobias.

Have a great weekend everyone!

My questions for today:

Nicole is in her nightgown ready to go to bed and in yesterday's before Dr. Baker showed up she and EJ were going to go to bed. Yet the Salem Inquisition is going on and everyone else in town is out at the pub so what time is it in Salem? I checked Deb's map and it doesn't appear Salem is such a big megalopolis it would span two time zones.

Next, Mia's career isn't working so well? What's it been Salem-time, two days since the babies were born? Could she even get to Japan in that time much less lose the post-baby bump? Uh, Mia, this might be a clue.

Lastly, the same thing Applecheeks wondered - the DiMera experts can tell from half the plan that it works? So were they able to fill in the second half to come to this conclusion?

OK, I've answered them all, this is DOOL. DO NOT try to apply logic to any of it.

LOL over the DOOL-aphobia and the great Star Trek scene - much more entertaining than anything on the real show! HAHAHAHA

Happy Friday the 13th weekend and holiday to all. TGIP!

Poor Hope. If she isn't a big cop any more she'll either have to get a job where she'll have to work instead of going into the boss's office and making out or stay home with Ciara. Unless Ciara is off to college by now....

Apparently, an italics-free Friday the 13th version of Prevuze was posted, and someone who doesn't appreciate Prevuze's humor took it seriously. The solution to this dilema is to find yourself another website. No one is forcing you to read Prevuze.

Just to clarify the time thing, when EJ comes into the bedroom and finds Nicole there, he makes some comment about it being too early to go to bed and that sets things up for Nicole to make her, oh so shocking, request. So I guess you could say they at least made a weak attempt to address the time issue.

It wasn't me, I love Prevuze, maybe I should start leaving my name at the bottom......

I love the Star Trek stuff, too funny!!

Nicole wants to have sex and EJ is still clueless, come on. I can't imagine watching it, it is so painful just to read.

Next week Sami is returning and she will see her baby, can't wait to see how the writers will push that under the rug.

Hope mad and unforgiving to Bo AGAIN, another SL nobody cares about. I am sure after this the whole, Bo having visions thing will never be heard of and we will be left hanging again wondering what it was all about....

Chelsea is leaving, I wonder how they are going to write her out.

I knew Payla were getting booted from the show, but had no idea their last episode is supposedly next Tuesday. How the heck are the writers going to justify their abrupt departure??

Perhaps they will have Payla go upstairs and just not come down again for a decade or so. They've done that before!

BTW - Bulldog - loved the snark at Dr. Dan's latest attempt to seduce someone. Maybe that's what will drive the Chief of Staph and hubby away. HAHAHA

Loverly Prevuze today! I'm considering it a Valentine's Day gift letting me zap most of Monday's epi.

I really hope that I'm misinterpreting the Hope being pissed at Bo thing. Is she really mad at him for not sharing a premonition he had? I mean, OBVIOUSLY she would have believed him if he'd told her what he saw, right? I hate Bo and Hope. If I never hear or read the words "Fancy Face" again, it will be too soon.

Yes, I should clarify the picture I guess. If the ire aimed at Prevuze is from the Payla people take note that it wasn't at all directed at Payla but Dr. Sleaze. I think he's the sort that now he thinks he's "won"* Chloe he's apt to dump her to try to go to some other unsuspecting female. Didn't he do that with Chelsea, then to go to Kate? With Kate, then to go to Chloe?

I only happened to have a picture of him and Kayla. When you think about it he rarely has a scene with anyone but Kate or Chelsea.

*Altho in my opinion it would be Daniel's loss and Lucas's gain.

I'm thinking I should come home and take my baby back."
Um, sweetheart. That's not how it works.

Phillip meets Melanie at the pub and asks what she's doing there.

Melanie hangs up and announces she has to go. Phillip asks where.

Max says no and Phillip hightails it after Melanie.
lmao, Phil needs a life. Or another girlfriend.

"Now why am I not surprised?"
Cont; -To find my business rivals and people I alienated into enemies conspiring behind my back. To think, we once had a pact to destroy Shawn Brady, Ej. Et tu, Melanie? I just gleefully fired you! WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS ME!

"I'm never too proud to pick up money."
Haha, a line genuinely liked.

Melanie is 18 year old, and no one at the pub carded her.
Leslie, whilst I agree with you, that pub is Brady owned and sanction free zone.

If EJ only had half of the formula, how could Harold test it and tell EJ “it works”?
Applecheeks, Bulldog, I think EJ meant he tested the formula to make sure what Melanie left him with wasn't made up gobbledegook.

Next, Mia's career isn't working so well? What's it been Salem-time, two days since the babies were born?
HAHA. So very true, I never even thought about that.

I mean, OBVIOUSLY she would have believed him if he'd told her what he saw, right? I hate Bo and Hope. If I never hear or read the words "Fancy Face" again, it will be too soon.
Amen to that.

Awesome prevuze today! Loved the Trekkie lines you guys added in for our entertainment. I'm liking your dialog a lot better than the one on Monday's eppisode of Dool, which is depressing to read never mind having to watching it! I think I'm getting nauseated just at the thought of Nicho/EJ pijama scene. Get a clue EJ! She's as flat as a board...the plot must be that the "miracle" baby is followed by the "miracle" postnatal recovery, is that it?
