And The Gloves Come Off

Sami is at the pub telling Grace why Will is mad at mommy. Outside, Rafe counsels Will. He tells the goof Grace needs Sami. Will thinks that will last until Sami gets distracted.

Inside, Sami continues to tell Grace how much she loves her. Roman walks up, "Who's baby is it?"

"It's mine, Dad," says Sami, "I added to my collection."

Hope grills a reluctant Nicole.

Tony sucks on his tube and writes. He thinks, "I want to see the look on your face when you realize Nicole never gave birth to your baby."

Phillip demands Nicole tell the truth.

"Leave me alone," says Nicole, "I need to think."

"If you need to be alone to think we'd have to clear the hospital." Bo hauls Phillip off and tells him to cool it. Stefano wants Nicole to tell what Phillip did to his son.

Tony struggles and tries to write. EJ wonders if what he has to say can't wait. Tony grunts and continues to write.

Bo tells Stefano to back off. Hope tells Nicole she wants an answer. Phillip struts up and gets in Nicole's face, "Don't be putting a DiMera slant on it, either!"

Bo pushes him away, "Shut your damn mouth. You got to tell your story, now it's her turn to tell hers."

Victor joins the party and tells Phillip not to say another word.

Moody Will stomps off. Rafe catches him and continues to lecture, "The real reason she adopted Grace was because..."

Prevuze

"It was because of you," says Rafe, "Your mother figured she deserved another chance to raise a normal kid.

Roman asks, "What do you mean this is your baby?" Sami says, "I adopted her."

Sami says, "I adopted her."

Roman is in denial, "No you didn't." Stunned Roman sits, "Sami, where is this coming from?"

Sami asks, "You don't' know where babies come from?" She gives him a cock and bull story about finding Grace at the orphanage. Roman doesn't buy it, "OK, Sami, now tell me the truth."

Tony breaks the lead on his pencil. EJ runs out to get another.

Tony thinks, "You have no idea what's coming to you, brother."

Prevuze

Bo says he thinks Phillip is telling the truth. Stefano insists Nicole tell Bo Phillip pushed Anthony.

Rafe says Sami was in witless protection program and thought she would never see Will again so she adopted Grace. Even Will can see how stupid that is.

Roman gives Sami the third degree as Caroline watches. Roman thinks Sami might have been just a little impulsive. Sami insists she wasn't. She asks Roman to support and help her. Roman realizes he raised a nitwit and refuses to play along. Caroline arranges flowers. I believe they might just be Buttinias.

Stefano tells Nicole if she considers herself a DiMera to tell them Phillip did this. Lexie steps in and tells him to back off. Bo does the same. Hope says she wants that statement. Nicole screams, "I'm too upset to make a statement now. Just leave me alone." As she walks away and reminds Hope the last time they talked she arrested her for a murder she didn't commit.

Victor tells Phillip he thinks he was doing whatever he could to get the blueprints after he was fired. Bo interrupts just to tell Phillip he'd better hope Nicole backs up his story.

Rafe tells Will to cut Sami some slack. Will explodes, "I've been cutting my mom some slack for sixteen years. In fact, I must be pretty good at it because everyone calls me a slacker."

Rafe defends Sami. He says her kids were alls she talked and thought about in the safehouse, "You're sixteen. You're not the only person in the world. When I was sixteen... just forget it."

Sami goes bonkers and rants at Roman for trying to tell her what to do. Caroline comes up and defends Sami.

Victor thinks he should give Phillip hell for going up against Tony, but he knows Phillip did it since he was pushing him. He apologizes.

Stefano says he wants answers and wants them now. Hope wonders why Stefano is more focused on blaming Phillip than he is on Tony's recovery. Stefano insists he is concerned about Tony and leaves.

Lexie tells Nicole not to let Stefano get to her. Nicole asks if Tony will live. Grim Lexie says, "His chances aren't good. With me as his doctor, his fate is practically sealed."

Nicole snaps her fingers, "Drat the bad luck."

As she leaves Lexie tells Nicole Tony is trying to write something for EJ.

EJ tells Tony Anna is on the way. He encourages him to forget about the message as Nicole walks in. Lexie follows, "What the hell is going on here?"

Caroline sits with Roman and Sami. She welcomes Grace to the circus known as the Brady family. She reminds Roman the timing wasn't good when they adopted Max and Frankie, "And they turned out OK. Frankie got out of town as fast as he could and Max ruined his racing career and went on a mission to have sex with every niece he could get his hands on." Roman reminds Caroline she had OMB to help, but Sami is alone.

Sami jumps in, "I am going into this with my eyes open and my mind closed."

Roman asks if Will has seen her. Sami is silent. Score one for Roman, "Ah... I guess that didn't' go so well, huh?"

The Will vs. Rafe smackdown continues. Rafe tells Will if he backed off that would make Sami very happy.

Lexie lectures Nicole and throws her and EJ out. They leave and Lexie tells Tony to calm down. Outside, EJ says Tony is upset, but having difficulty writing about it.

"The inability to write is common on this show," says Nicole. Hope walks up and continues to badger Nicole for a statement. EJ goes back to talk to Tony. Hope stares. Nicole stares.

Caroline sings the praises of having a huge litter of rugrats around. Sami says she has to leave to buy formula. Caroline congratulates her and granddad. Sami thanks her for her support. Roman softens and smiles.

Phillip says, "I was in charge of the computers when the DiMeras sabotaged them. I would have fired me too." Victor wants to make sure Phillip isn't charged with a felony.

Stefano steps up and threatens, "Charges against Phillip are the least of your worries."

Hope asks Nicole what happened at the pier. Bo pulls Hope away. Nicole whispers, "I swear, Tony, you'd better not say anything to EJ."

EJ watches as Lexie forbids Tony to try to write anything else. "That's OK," says Tony, "I was having a major case of writer's block anyway."

Lexie announces she has to go consult with Daniel, "I want to spread the liability for the malpractice lawsuit to as many doctors as I can." On the way out, she gives EJ the look of death.

EJ tells Tony to relax and gives him a pad and pencil. Tony says, "But this is against doctor's orders."

EJ reminds him, "That doctor was Lexie." Tony decides he'd better start writing.


Will agrees to help Sami but says he won't accept Grace as his sister, "I'll bet in six months she'll forget Grace just like she forgot me." Rafe tells him to get with the program, "Wrap your head around it."

"If I'm going to do that, it had better be a small program," says Will. Rafe leaves.

Roman agrees to be all happy-happy about Grace. He says he meant what he said but he's proud of Sami for ruining the life of yet another kid.

Caroline returns and asks Roman if he's on board. He says he is. Caroline leaves. Roman gets all sappy. Sami thanks and hugs him.

Tony struggles to write. Suddenly, his arm drops and dangles over the side of the bed.

Victor says he hopes that wasn't a threat. Stefano rambles, "You know, in the past, we almost joined forces, but then you take over Titan, can't take the pressure and the gloves come off."

Nicole tells Hope she can't tell her what happened.

Tony's machines go berserk. A doctor rushes in and panics.

Sami and Rafe are outside the pub. Sami tells Rafe Roman bought her orphanage story. Will joins them and Rafe walks away. Will saps out and tells her he wants things to be cool. He says he will help out and see how it goes. Sami hugs. Rafe watches. "I'll be home for dinner," says Will, "as long as you're not cooking." He leaves.

Rafe comes back and Sami says she can't believe the turnaround, "I wonder what happened."

"He's your kid," says Rafe, "Maybe he's bipolar too."

The crash cart team comes flying into Tony's room. EJ stands in the hallway and looks at Tony's scribbled message

Victor says he sympathizes about Tony but says he doesn't want any threats. Stefano insists he doesn't make threats, "If your son is responsible for my son's death, then you can expect me to do what any father would do."

"How can you disown and fire him after he's dead," asks Victor.

Nicole says she has to know if Tony is going to be OK before she makes up her story.

Lexie stands behind the doc as she commands the crash cart team.

"CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP!

Dr. Morbid stops the attempt, "I'm calling it."

Bones looks up at Kirk, "He's dead, Jim."

Lexie the consummate professional orders an assistant, "Please note the time of death." Lexie bawls.

EJ comes out to the waiting crowd. Nicole rushes up, "Is Tony..."

"He had a heart attack," says EJ.

Lexie comes out bearing the bad news, "We did everything we could, except get him a competent doctor. He's gone."

Tears, tears, tears.

Nicole breathes a sigh of relief.

Stefano stares at Phillip.

Okay, so I am dying to know, Did EJ read or not read what Tony wrote and what did Tony write???? The suspense is killing me!!!

Just when I get ready to leave - DOOL pulls me back in.

WAAAHHHH!!! Goodbye Thaao. Your acting was too good for this show.

Once again, the kids show they have more sense and perception than all of the adults on the program put together!

C'fish, Bulldog, Prevuze - huzzah to you and your great pictures! I hope those who weren't around in the late 60's, early 70's "get" the Tony pic. That was a hoot!

The writers spent a lot of time setting up almost everyone on the show as a possible suspect in Tony's death. While I'm kind of relieved we didn't have to suffer through a 'who killed Tony' s/l, I can't believe they squandered Tony's exit with this lame accident.

I also can't believe Tony would fight so hard to spill Nicole's little secret. It's not like he was trying to finger his murderer. Looks like he'd have better things to do. Like fight for his life. Jeez!

Buttinias and Dr. Dan using Twitter for brain surgery. Doesn't get much better than this on a cloudy Monday.

I'm guessing that the note Tony wrote to EJ says something like "Sydney is not your baby", which will prompt EJ to demand a paternity test, which will show the baby is his and drag this storyline on forever.

Kind of unbelievable that both Roman and Sami would refer to her baby as "it" ("Who's baby is it?" "It's mine.") And even more unbelievable that she would claim she found the baby at an orphanage. As if a healthy caucasian newborn girl would just languish in an orphanage. And as if they'd do no background check at all, no homestudy, no social worker would talk to her family, and they wouldn't care that she has no job and no income. As an adoptive parent, all I can say is...AS IF. All the adoption storylines they've had on this show are like something 8-year-olds would pretend.

They showed on the screen what Tony wrote, but I could not read it (When doing Prevuze I work off of a small screen and it just didn't have the resolution to pick it up). EJ said something about what Tony said, but like the true thespian he is, he mumbled it inaudibly.

Sorry to leave you in suspense.

Not that I don't agree with him in this instance, but Pard has apparently taken over Marlena's job of criticizing and judging Sami. If Belle showed up suddenly with an adopted baby they wouldn't question it at all and automatically say how wonderful it is.

Loved this one: "The inability to write is common on this show," says Nicole." and "EJ reminds him the doctor was Lexie. Tony decided he'd better start writing. And the other 60's reference: "He's dead, Jim."

Thanks, Prevuze, for once again helping us thru a dreaded Monday morning! :D

Loved the shot at the end of the episode in Prevuze II of Philip with blood on his hands. As Prevuze would say, "Oh, the artistry! Oh, the metaphor!"

Roman is in denial, "No you didn't." Stunned Roman sits, "Sami, where is this coming from?"

Well, it's like this, Roman...when a mommy and a daddy love each other very much.......

Stunned Roman sits, "Sami, where is this coming from?"

Sami asks, "You don't' know where babies come from?"


Sami then launches into a story about storks and babies. Roman will find this much more believable than Sami finding an adoption agency that would just hand over a baby to her without any sort of background check.

Rafe says Sami was in witless protection program and thought she would never see Will again so she adopted Grace. Even Will can see how stupid that is.

You think? Geez!

Dr. Morbid stops the attempt, "I'm calling it."

Bones looks up at Kirk, "He's dead, Jim."


Prevuze goes from the sublime back to the ridiculousness that is DOOL. “Star Trek” was ground breaking TV. DOOL is up-chucking TV.

Bulldog, I hope no one from the DOOL advertising department is taking notes. If they are, hopefully they’ll won't sell a spot for a jock itch powder. Prevuze – so that’s what Tony was sucking. Maybe Michael Phelps dropped by to share a hit. Berg you are so right – Tony/Thaao deserved so much better.

Well, at least Tony goes out with a buzz if not a bang.

As to Sami adopting Grace, if all it takes to join the police department is to be able to tie your shoes, you probable only have to be able to spell the word, baby, in order to adopt.

People have been shot, stabbed, fallen off cliffs, blown to bits on an exploding island, EMBALMED for God's sake and still have come back.

All Tony has "died" of is a heart attack. Pronounced by Dr. Dan and Lexi of all people. (Let's see, HOW many folks showed back up alive after Lexi proclaimed them dead a few years ago?)

Should Thaao ever be dumb enough to agree to come back, we'll learn that either Stefano, grabbing the opportunity to punish Tony for disobeying him, faked the heart attack OR that, once again, it was evil Andre that died - Tony could return.

Wonder why a version of "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina" is playing through my head?

I agree with Bulldog, I don't think anyone would have that much of an issue if Belle adopted a baby during her fiasco with Phil and Shawn.

And constant criticism isn't going to make it easier.

Anon, I don't know. I'd use 'it'. She's just a baby, it seems like a honest slip of the tongue. Maybe if they called Johnny or Allie an it.

Stefano insists Nicole tell Bo Phillip pushed Anthony.
Apparently Stefano believes that if you wish hard enough it becomes true.

Rafe says Sami was in witless protection program and thought she would never see Will again so she adopted Grace.
lolwut? What the hell does that even mean??

"I've been cutting my mom some slack for sixteen years.
eh... since you were baby, Will?

"I want to spread the liability for the malpractice lawsuit to as many doctors as I can."
Sound's right.

"If your son is responsible for my son's death, then you can expect me to do what any father would do."
Ship him to an island??

Honestly, this writing is so hokey. Stefano couldn't care less about Tony or his welfare - sure he says so, but actions always speak louder than words.

Maybe if EJ died, or Philip died? But Tony? Nobody cared about him. Certainly not enough to go to war over.

And where was Benji's war? But I don't remember who killed him. Ah, well.

Holy cow - I got here so late to read Prevuze, I figured somebody would have long ago commented about this one:

She reminds Roman the timing wasn't good when they adopted Max and Frankie, "And they turned out OK. Frankie got out of town as fast as he could and Max ruined his racing career and went on a mission to have sex with every niece he could get his hands on."

Thank God I've learned my lesson about keeping food and drink far, far away from my mouth while reading Prevuze because I would have totally splattered my keyboard and monitor on that one!

Does Kimberly have any daughters that Max can move in on after his and Chelsea's romance hits the skids? I suppose Cierra is still too young for him - though we haven't seen her in long enough that they could easily SORAS her to dating age...

There's always Claire. You know when she gets done guiding dumbbell and dumberbell around the world she'll come back a fine older teenage hottie.

There is just so many snarky jewels to choose from when mocking DOOL. Not one storyline makes sense.

I can't believe the police are allowing Nicole to keep stalling on the statement. She can't do it until she knows how Tony is going to be? Give me a break! And it took Tony 3 days to write the letter B?

Blogger Applecheeks said...

Ah, Wingnut - You have hit the nail on the head about Kimberly's kids. She has a son and a daughter. She'd probably be too old for Max (being at least 15 years older than Stefanie). Unless they un-SORASed her.

One observation. If Bo can forsee events, why didn't he foresee Tony's accident? I think they are killing off one of the best actors on the show. I love Thao. He is classic. No way they can ever replace him. He IS Tony DiMera.
Is it true Chelsea is leaving the show? YAYYYYYYYYYY. Now, let's get rid of the queen of botox...Chloe. Oh right, we have her for nine more months. They have her as pregnant now. Oh Sheesh.
Remember when Will came to the pub and Sami introduced him to Grace? In walks Mr. Sunshine, talks to his mom and never notices the huge stroller there by her table with a grinning kid in it. Sami had to introduce him to her. This Will gets on my nerves. But, so does Lucas. He's a good actor in that he acts like he could be Lucas's kid for sure. Lucas is also an immature little snot.
