The Week After Never

Nicole and EJ are at the hospital waiting for word on Sydney. Whiny Nicole tells EJ she can't keep him in the dark any more, "This is my fault. I brought this on us." Flashback to the switcheroo.

Lexie comes in. EJ and Nicole rush up to her. EJ hyperventilates, "How is she?"

Nicole panics, "Is our baby gonna live?"

"Her prognosis is pretty good," says Lexie, "Another doctor took over her case so I could come out here and tell you there is no news."

Daniel tells Kayla she's doing fine. She says she can't go to the big fundraiser, but he gets to go instead of her as the acting Chief of Staph. She talks about the possibility of auctioning off a date with him, "I'm not up for that," says Daniel, "but if you want, you can auction off a few copped feels. I think I could handle that." Stephanie arrives as Daniel leaves. Kayla immediately senses something is wrong with poor ole Stephanie.

Chloe arrives at the Kiriakis mansion as Phillip is leaving. She asks if he's going to Chez Rouge solo, "What happened to you and Stephanie?" Phillip ignores her and leaves. Chloe goes into the next room and finds Lucas, Kate and Victor. Lucas asks, "Where have you been." we have a flashback. Well, in this case, it's more of a fleshback.

Lexie says they need to run more tests. She says she already has a complete family history of the DiMeras, but needs one for Nicole, "Sidney's condition may have been due to asthma." Nicole immediately jumps in and insists her family has no history of that. Lexie stumbles around with a few more questions as Nicole assures her that her family has no medical history whatever.

EJ suggests it might have been SIDS. Nicole gasps at the thought of Syd's SIDS. She fakes fainting.

Phillip arrives at Maggie's house to see Melanie. Melanie asks, "Well, are you here to talk some sense into me."

"No," says Phillip, "We don't have enough time. The show only lasts an hour." He wonders if she's taking the patents because of him and Stephanie. Melanie tells him she she wouldn't blow the most important deal of her life over that. He tells her he and Stephanie broke up. That gets Melanie's attention, "You and Stephanie broke up?"

Phillip says, "Yep."

Melanie asks, "Over what?"

Phillip says, "You."

Stephanie says, "I'm here to cheer you up."

Kayla asks, "So you're leaving?"

Stephanie says, "It's about Phillip and me – I think it's over."

Prevuze

Kate suggests a Valentine's day wedding.

"I have a better idea," snorts Victor, "I think you should put it off. The week after never would be perfect."

EJ holds Nicole as she says, "I don't want to do anything to hurt Sydney."

Stefano stomps up, gets in Nicole's face and booms, "What did you do to my granddaughter you irresponsible idiot?" We feel the love.

Melanie gives us her best Scarlett O'Hara irritating and fake southern accent, "You and Stephanie broke up over l'il ole me? I hate to see true love fizzle and die."

Phillip threatens, "If you take those patents to the DiMeras, you'll lose the only thing you really want."

Melanie, still in her Scarlet persona, asks, "And what would that be?"

Modest Phillip answers, "Me."

Stephanie says, "Phillip is ruthless."

Kayla says, "I once said the same thing about your father. But that was when I was young and thought 'ruthless' and 'clueless' meant the same thing."

Chloe and Lucas agree that Valentine's Day would be a perfect day to get married.

Victor and Kate argue. He thinks the whole relationship will go up in smoke before the wedding.

EJ tells Stefano this isn't Nicole's fault.

Lexie bounces out with her big diagnosis, "Sydney has reflux." Everyone is so happy to hear the news. Lexie elaborates, "It wasn't anything serious. It was the non-serious form of not breathing."

EJ and Nicole go off. Stefano tells Lexie he thinks Nicole is a schemer. He vows to find out what's going on with her.

Kate meets Maggie at Chez Rouge. Maggie gushes over how great Kate looks, "How do you do it?"

"Ten months of chemo," says Kate, "A bone marrow transplant, and a staff of writers who wouldn't know reality if it walked up and slapped them in the face." She tells Maggie about the upcoming Valentine's day massacre and asks her to cater the affair. Maggie says that's her own anniversary. She has already made plans. Loserclueless and Chloe show up. He and Kate go off to practice her big speech. Leaving Chloe and Maggie to talk. Maggie asks, "Valentine's day? That's awfully soon. Does Daniel know?" Chloe insists she and Daniel are over.

Melanie continues to channel Scarlet, "I do declare... is it hot in here? What if I told you the deal with the DiMeras is done. What would you do to get it back?"

Lexie and Stefano argue. Lexie thinks Stefano should back off now that EJ has found true happiness. Stefano decides he may have overreacted. She leaves and Stefano growls.

Chloe and Lucas dance as Victor and Daniel walk in. Chloe sees them and stiffens up like she just got struck by lightning. Uber-observant Lucas senses something is wrong. Chloe tells him he's imagining things.

Nicole holds Sydney and rambles about how she almost told EJ everything EJ stands in the background. Nicole picks up a megaphone, points it at him and says, "But now it's our little secret that you are really Sami's kid and not mine." EJ zones out.

Phillip figures the deal really isn't done. Melanie figures he always wants things he can't have.

Stephanie thinks maybe it was Kayla's love turned Patch around. "That and a great 12-step program," says Kayla. She tells Stephanie to settle for nothing less than respect.

Kate stands in front of the big crowd of prospective donors and speechifies. She says she thinks Daniel saved her life, "So, please, open your wallets and your checkbooks and give, give, give to one of Salem's largest corporations so it can blow the money on fancy offices and continue to suck the patients dry."

Maggie steps up and thanks Kate, "Now it's time for me to conduct the silent auction."

Victor turns to Daniel, "That's the only thing about her that's silent."

Stefano raves about Kate's beauty, "Why didn't you put yourself on the auction block. I would have bid myself."

Kate says, "I couldn't put myself up for bid. My pimp doesn't like it when I handle those transactions on my own and cheat him out of his cut."

"What if we do things the old fashioned way," asks Stefano, "I'll pick up the phone, call you and invite you to dinner. After dinner we go to my place and pay for it there."

Kate turns him down and Stefano suggests she call him when she is free.

Maggie opens a check for $100,000 and reads the note, "For her courage and dignity. Kate is an inspiration to all of us. This donation is made in her name. From Anonymous." Maggie is beyond grateful. The crowd applauds.

Maggie opens another envelope, "Lucas Horton, who has no job and no prospects, has donated 1,000 to hear Chloe sing.

Victor turns to Daniel and totally beats Prevuze to the punch, "I'd pay $10,000 to have her not sing." Daniel defends her. "Whenever I mention Chloe," says Victor, "You go ballistic. It's because you care about her, isn't it? God, there's something going on between you two."

EJ walks in after Nicole finishes her tirade and apparently he didn't hear a word. Nicole tells him she and Sydney were talking about girl stuff. EJ has the discharge papers. Translation: he has the bill. He says he's no longer upset and feels blessed to have Sydney and Nicole.

They get all kissy-huggy. "I'll be with you for all the Days Of Our Lives," says Nicole. Smooches. They leave.

Melanie tells Phillip to go, but Phillip says he has one more thing for her. There is a knock at the door and some guy is there to serve Melanie with an injunction, which will force her to stay with Titan. Melanie reels of a chain of obscenities that would make a longshoreman blush, "You SOB, you two faced bastard! You've won this round but not the war. I hate you!"

Phillip says he was hoping she would stay with Titan on her own accord, "But whatever, you're stuck with me, pumpkin. Night-night." He leaves.

Stephanie asks, "So you think love can change a person?"

"Yes," says Kayla, "But not necessarily." In other words, she doesn't have a clue whether it can or not. She doesn't think Phillip is the guy for Stephanie, though.

Daniel tells Victor he's tired of his insinuations and insists he and Chloe are just friends. Victor warns him that Chloe is trouble. He tells him about the Valentine's Day wedding but says he won't be there, "I plan to be out of the house. It will be an unmitigated disaster."

Chloe gets in Lucas' face and sings. Daniel watches as we roll through a poor man's music video.

Nicole puts Sydney to sleep in the rumpus room. She and EJ snuggle. He gets a call and goes off to take it. It's Melanie. She rants about him standing her up and tells him she needs to see him right now.

Nicole tells Sydney everything will be OK, "We're home free."

In the same vein, the captain of the Titanic calls for full steam ahead and turns to his first mate, "We're home free."

Chloe sings. Daniel watches and zones. Victor and Phillip watch and scowl. Lucas stands there like Mortimer Snerd after a lobotomy.

Chloe finishes and Daniel leads the applause. Phillip tells Victor everything is taken care of. Suddenly, Chloe runs out of the room and Lucas runs after her.

Dr. Baker shows up at the DiMera mansion.

EJ wanders near the docks. Melanie catches up with him. "I know how the DiMeras do business," says Melanie, "I want you to eliminate Phillip."

Phillip tells Victor everything went according to plan. He asks about Stephanie as she walks in.

Daniel leaves a phone message and says he hopes Chloe is OK, "Call me, I love you."

Chloe twists her engagement ring and tries to get it off her finger. Lucas comes up as the tower of tears blubbers, "I'm sorry, Lucas, but I can't marry you until I'm certain my scars have completely healed."

Today's knock knock joke is...
knock, knock.

Who's there?

EJ.

EJ who?

EJ is the stupidest person in the world and has not only lost his balls, but apparently Stefano is drinking the same tainted Koolaid as him which is mixed with stupid powder.

Damn, I should not have opened the door.

"I'm not up for that," says Daniel, "but if you want, you can auction off a few copped feels. I think I could handle that."

After a few copped feels, he could be, ahem, up for something else.

Lucas asks, "Where have you been." we have a flashback. Well, in this case, it's more of a fleshback.

…so we’re getting a soft porn time filler. Geez.

Nicole gasps at the thought of Syd's SIDS. She fakes fainting.

Ahhh, the drama, ahhh, the action, ahhh, the overacting.

EJ holds Nicole as she says, "I don't want to do anything to hurt Sydney."

Nicole kidnapped the baby from a mother who could actually nurse her so hasn't she already hurt Sydney?

Stefano stomps up, gets in Nicole's face and booms, "What did you do to my granddaughter you irresponsible idiot?" We feel the love.

Victor and Kate argue. He thinks the whole relationship will go up in smoke before the wedding.


On DOOL, a character has to be older than dirt to have an active brain cell. The old guys rule!!

Victor turns to Daniel and totally beats Prevuze to the punch, "I'd pay $10,000 to have her not sing."

DOOL could really benefit from giving us less Melanie and more Victor and Stefano.

Chloe sings. Daniel watches and zones. Victor and Phillip watch and scowl. Lucas stands there like Mortimer Snerd after a lobotomy.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!


With bad accents, sloppy kisses, and over the top ridiculous complements, this episode is loaded with endless zapportunities. If it weren’t for the old guys, I would simply delete the entire mess from my DVR. Prevuze, thanks for making another Monday morning bearable.

Kayla is alive, coherent, and apparently able to make executive decisions; why does she need Dr. Dan the Coppafeel Man to be Acting Chief of Staph? Just asking.

Lexie elaborates, "It wasn't anything serious. It was the non-serious form of not breathing."

Gotta love it when DOOL gets all doctory.

"How do you do it?"

"Ten months of chemo," says Kate, "A bone marrow transplant, and a staff of writers who wouldn't know reality if it walked up and slapped them in the face."


Lord, you have that right Prevuze!

Kate turns him down and Stefano suggests she call him when she is free.

Prevuze! How could you miss such a great lead-in? Perhaps you did it intentionally so one of your Prevuzites could contribute:
”Stefano, I may be cheap, but I’m NEVER free!”

Lucas stands there like Mortimer Snerd after a lobotomy.

Mortimer AFTER a lobotomy, now that says it all. ROFLMAO

Thanks for enduring this idiotic episode for us, Prevuze.

Dr. Baker shows up at the mansion. And so phase I of the predicted blackmail part of the story begins. (Phase II will be when Mia shows up at the door.)

Chloe finishes and runs out of the room. Usually everyone else runs out of the room the minute she opens her mouth.

LOL over Nicole's megaphone (EJ is deaf as well as dense??) and "I can't marry you until my scars heal." But my favorite Prevuism is "Mortimer Snerd after a lobotomy." I'm not sure but that doesn't also apply to Max when he gets that same look. HAHAHAHA

Thanks, Prevuze, for brightening up our dreary, rainy Monday!

Stefano tells Lexie he thinks Nicole is a schemer. He vows to find out what's going on with her.
Um... where in the world did this come from?? Oh yeah, it fits the plot even though Stefano wasn't all that suspicious before.

"I plan to be out of the house. It will be an unmitigated disaster."
Victor, currently the smartest fellow on the show? I think so.

"I want you to eliminate Phillip."
Ok... did anybody else burst out laughing?

And that's how Philip is going to destroy Melanie? With lawyers and papers? Ah well.

Can I request that EJ eliminate Melanie instead?

So, is Lexie working at the hospital again? I thought she quit to spend time with Theo. Did I miss something?

Prevuze II - anyone else laugh at the expression on Mag's face when Daniel tells her - AGAIN - it's none of her business? HA!

Kristina - Lexi stepped down as Chief of Staph, but continues to work as a doctor (if you want to call her that) at the hospital.

LOL prevuze...you definitely had tons of stuff to jest about on today's recap! I'm loving Victor right now! He must be the only DOOL male not having undergone Mortimer's labotomy...Prevuze, best medical blog on the net.®

I so wish Victor had more lines, he always says what I am thinking. The show needs a strong male, because all the others including Stefano, all need a wake up call, what a bunch of babies.

So EJ didn't hear Nicole say that the baby is Sami's?? When I read that I was almost jumping out of my seat with joy, that this might finally be over and the ax would fall on Nicole.

Mortimer's labotomy

Shouldn't that be Rolf's labotomy? Maybe that's where Rolf's been lately - he's busy giving every male in Salem a labotomy. Victor must be the last one left that old Rolf hasn't got to yet...
