False Hope Is Better Than No Hope

Chloe stands in front of a mirror at the Horton cabin and models her wedding dress. Daniel walks up, pulls back her hair and strokes her face. Lucas bops in and Daniel's apparition vanishes into thin air. It was all in Chloe's mind, where the air is very thin. Chloe immediately panics and wraps herself in a blanket so Lucas can't see the dress. She tells him to get out, "You are ruining everything."

Kate finds Daniel as she walks down by the pier. He tells her he's just out taking a walk. So is Kate, "It helps clear the mind."

Daniel thinks to himself, "Chloe must walk a whole lot."

Kate tells him she had a horrible thought last night, more like a premonition, "I couldn't shake the feeling someone had reason to stop Chloe and Lucas' wedding."

Max works at the bar and reminisces about his romp with Chelsea. He calls and leaves a message inviting her down to the Cheatin' Heart for another round.

Chelsea and Stephanie arrive at Bo and Hope's house. Stephanie questions her decision to move out. Chelsea tells her about being "together" with Max and Bo catching them, "He thought that..."

Stephanie interrupts, "That you and Max had slept together?"

"Was he right?"

Sami meets Rafe at the pub. She wonders why he didn't call to let her know he was in town. Rafe doesn't want to do this, "It's complicated. Of course, to you, a light switch is complicated."

Sami wants to talk. Rafe wants to run. Sami figures Rafe got fired, "Your career is over because of me."

Chloe accuses Lucas of peeking. "My eyes are completely closed," he claims Lucas insists things will be OK even though he's seen her in the dress. Chloe says she just doesn't want to take any chances, unless it's something like romping around with Daniel. He tells her how much she means to him as he smooches around on her. He finds his credit card and tells her he has to go see Sami. Mt. Chloe-tubo blows sky-high. Lucas says no matter what Sami says he doesn't listen to her, "You are the woman I want to be with."

Chloe hugs him, "No one is going to stop me from marrying you, Lucas, no one." Translation: In Vegas, the odds on this wedding fall to 10,000 to 1.

Back to Danny and Granny. Daniel tells her it's natural to be anxious about a wedding and says there is no reason to stop the it. Kate reminds him Chloe already broke it off once, "She went back with Lucas after he was almost killed. I think Chloe took him back over guilt. Guilt for what I don't know." Daniel tells her to let it go. Kate speculates there is someone who knows a reason they shouldn't get married and hopes that person would have the guts to tell. Daniel has the guts to run away like a scared rabbit.

Chelsea avoids answering Stephanie and says the situation of living with Bo and Hope is weird and awkward. She asks what's up with Stephanie and Phillip. Stephanie tells her things are all screwed up, "I'm embarrassed to say it, but I can see us together for all the Days Of Our Lives. How did this happen?"

"You fell in love," says Chelsea.

That scares Stephanie, "I can see marriage, the house, kids, all of it."

"If that scares you," says Chelsea, "It must terrify Phillip."

Sami and Rafe read from the safehouse scrips and continue to bicker like kindergärtners. Sami asks, "You could be in real trouble, couldn't you?"

Rafe says, "If I had to do it all over again, I would."

Rafe suggests something to eat. Sami isn't hungry, so Rafe goes for coffee. Sami yanks out her phone and makes a call, "Abe! You are my last Hope."

Daniel stumbles into the chapel and prays, "I haven't done this since I was a kid. I guess as I have gotten older I thought compared to all the problems in the world my problems weren't deserving your attention. I'm just lookin' for something... a little clarity. Chloe... this woman..."

"I'm all too familiar with her," says God, "She whines a lot, doesn't she?"

Daniel continues, "I had to force myself to respect her choice, but now I realize this is all a lie. She is with Lucas out of guilt not because she loves him. How is that right? She told me she got a sign from God. I thought she created it in her own mind, but here I am, a wreck, and maybe I'm just looking for a sign myself."

The clouds part, the sun shines through, and Chloe walks in.

Max hears a knock at the door and coaches himself to be cool. He swings the door open and says, "Hey, beautiful!"

Confused Will stands at the door, "I guess you were expecting someone else." Max lectures him for taking two days to come and say hi. He asks who the beautiful girl is that Max is expecting. Max refuses to tell. They share small talk. Will thinks it's weird to have his dad marrying Chloe. Chelsea walks in as they ramble and Max makes over the twins and says he can't wait to be a father.

Daniel gets serious about his prayer. He gets on his knees at the altar. Chloe flashes back to praying for Lucas to live. Daniel senses her presence and looks around but Chloe has gone.

Chloe wanders through the hospital, "No more, I can't keep doing this any more."

Kate finds her, "Problem?"

Sami begs Abe to give Rafe job. Rafe walks up and snatches the phone from her, "What the hell do you think you're doing?"

Sami says she was just trying to help. Rafe takes the phone and talks to Abe. He tells him there was a misunderstanding and says they should both forget Sami ever called. He hangs up and the childish bickering starts. Sami says she doesn't want Rafe to walk out of her life again.

"You're right," says Rafe, "It would be a better idea to run."

Will speculates that whomever the beautiful girl is, she is late. He leaves. Max texts Chelsea, "Where are you? Call me."

Chloe tells Kate she just had her bi-annual checkup, "I'm completely clear."

"You mean they check your brain, too," asks Kate, "I'm here for my checkup, too. Gotta keep on top of all those STDs." She gushes over Chloe and asks when they are going dress shopping. Chloe says she decided to stick with the one she picked. She apologizes but Kate stops her and continues her gushing. Chloe leaves.

Kate turns into the daughter of Satan, "We're going to be doing a lot later. I've just gotten started with you and Daniel."

Chelsea finds Daniel in the chapel, "I wanted to come here and collect my thoughts. It won't take much time. It's a very small collection." Chelsea says she has figured out a way to fix everything and Daniel can help her do that.

Max looks at a set of earrings with a pendant and removes the Dollar Store tag, "I Hope she likes them." He continues to babble, "Who am I talking to?"

Chelsea tells Daniel he is a great doctor, "Sometimes as a patient, it's hard to tell when you are groping." She asks him about the possibility of her having kids, "Can you help me with that?"

"I only have a few minutes," says Daniel, "But there is nothing I can do medically."

Chelsea blubbers and says all she wants is for him to give her hope, "False hope is better than no hope."

"You've been reading fortune cookies again, haven't you," asks Daniel.

Rafe tells Sami he's not just going to walk out of her life. He tells her he will call soon and walks out of her life. He runs into Lucas on the way out.

Lucas asks Sami if she's OK. She says she's perfect. He asks if Rafe is the great FBI guy, "So he knows exactly how you lost the baby?" Sami wonders how Lucas always knows how to get her upset. He apologizes for being insensitive. Sami refuses to forgive him, "Rafe is a really great guy vs. some idiot who would marry Ghoul Girl." Things escalate and Sami stomps out.

Ghoul Girl herself walks in the woods and rambles, "I can't do this. I can't wait until the wedding... Wait! That's it! OMG!"

Danie talks to God, "This is against everything I believe. What gives you peace of mind is to give someone else peace of mind. I can't help Chelsea but I can help Chloe. I thought you were guiding her. She made a promise to you. I just have to let her keep it."

Chelsea bustles into the Cheatin' Heart and apologizes for being late. Max says he isn't upset. He asks if she is. He gives her the present. "I can't," she whines "We have to end this."

Max, as usual, doesn't get it. He rambles about how great things felt. She says, "There is more to being together than the physical stuff."

Max consults the Guy Manual, "Act like that makes sense." Max says he thinks they have all everything together, but Chelsea says there is something else that would be important down the line and she can't deprive him of that. She walks out. Max stares.

Sami wanders outside and babbles about having no messages. She thinks she tried to help Rafe and blew it.

Rafe walks into the cop shop, "I'm here to see Roman Brady. I'm hoping maybe he'll give me a job."

Kate bumps into Daniel at the hospital. She says she hopes she didn't sound too crazy this morning. Daniel assures her she did not and tells her not to worry, "I know Chloe and Lucas will have a good life. This wedding will be the best thing for everyone. Except Lucas." He leaves.

Chloe meets Lucas in the pub and they suck around on each other. "Lucas," she beams, "I have a great idea. Let's elope, tonight. Right now."

You know this show may have some high-highs but unfortunately most of the shows are low-lows. The show from today's Prevuze is a real snooze fest.

Three cheers for the computer guy installing John Black's memory onto the hard drive. Three jeers for the whole Chloe / Daniel / Lucas storyline. Unbearable. Please make it stop.

Sami meets Rafe at the pub. She wonders why he didn't call to let her know he was in town.

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, Sami drops into the Brady Pub and finds Rafe. Geez.

Sami figures Rafe got fired, "Your career is over because of me."

With the excessive amount of brain numbing time Rafe spent with Sami in the witless protection program, that’s a given.

Kate speculates there is someone who knows a reason they shouldn't get married and hopes that person would have the guts to tell.

Apparently, Kate has committed to memory “The Spider and the Fly” and can recite it in several languages.

He asks who the beautiful girl is that Max is expecting. Max refuses to tell.

Is he afraid Will will laugh himself silly?

Rafe walks into the cop shop, "I'm here to see Roman Brady. I'm hoping maybe he'll give me a job."

Of all the cop shops in all the towns in all the world, Rafe flies straight from DC to walk into the SPD looking for a job. Geez.

DOOL – television that even puts insomniacs to sleep. Good grief! Bulldog your Chelsea toast is truly wickedly funny!!! Prevuze, I’m so glad Titan was able to use John’s memory disc. Since he and Marlena are in Switzerland, John sure doesn’t need it anymore. Prevuze, thanks so much for brightening up our first very dark Daylight Saving Time Monday morning!!

I am shocked that the DOOL studio has not been struck by lightning yet, given the shameless way they are tarnishing God's good name in this Danloe saga.

This wasn't italicized but I'm willing to bet my next measley paycheck it should have been: "Chloe tells Kate she just had her bi-annual checkup, "I'm completely clear." "You mean they check your brain, too," asks Kate." HAHAHAHAHA

OK, I forget. What did Rafe do that was fire-worthy? Go out and get the stupid penguins? If it's been kept a big secret Sami had a baby does the FBI even know about that?

I'm still laughing over Jawn's disc going into that computer. Wouldn't it be great if it kicked out some of the great zingers Jawn used to? They should have it do that - they need the unintended comic relief on there now that Bart/Rolf/Jawn are all gone.

Thanks for the much needed laughs on a groggy Monday, Prevuze! :D

I once could recite "The Spider and the Fly" - but that was about 10+ years ago.

That scares Stephanie, "I can see marriage, the house, kids, all of it."
Jeez. She just met Philip. She has known Chelsea longer than Philip... and her little brother, perhaps.

Kate turns into the daughter of Satan, "We're going to be doing a lot later. I've just gotten started with you and Daniel."
A Kate I actually like, for once her focus is justified. Somewhat.

Chelsea blubbers and says all she wants is for him to give her hope, "False hope is better than no hope."
So this is where Chelsea finds out about an experimental surgery to re enable her childbirth function.

"Rafe is a really great guy vs. some idiot who would marry Ghoul Girl."
Having Sami refer to Chloe as 'Ghoul Girl' seems pretty immature, seeing as Sami was a grown woman with a child whilst Chloe was still in highschool.

This episode seems worth a 'meh'. And as much as I like Melanie, it's kinda refreshing to not have her around, a bit. I do love Stefano praising EJ with 'Jopb well done's for sticking it to her.

How did John Black get his memory back without his memory disc?

Tomorrow's show doesn't sound like the best one we've had in awhile, I guess they can't all be keepers.

Anonymous, I seriously doubt God has too much to worry about to give a darn about a daytime soap.

Cameo?
Did anyone else see Watchmen? In the opening scene there is a commercial on the TV that The Comedian is watching and I could swear the model was EJ. Anyone else notice?

I saw the subject line, "False Hope Is Better Than No Hope" and thought maybe another Princess Gina clone was arriving in Salem. HAHA

Loved ALL of the pictures. However, Rafe's declaration that he'd do it "all over again" causes the audience to rise as one and cry, "GACK! Please Lord, NO! WE can't go through it again."

Back to Danny and Granny.

This provided my first LOL of the day. Man, did I need that.

Then I got to Chelsea's toast and darned if it didn't bring tears to my eyes....along with a stitch to my side from laughing. Thank goodness my office door happened to be closed. The guys waiting for a bid opening out in the conference room would have thought I was nuts.

this is a rather rhetorical question, but why isn't Sami asking Bo to get Rafe a job? Isn't he the chief of police now?

EJ is a former model turned soap opera actor, so he could well be in a comercial on Watcmen. I think he used to do clothing ads also. I'll have to check it out myself.
