The I-Just-Got-Dumped Look

Brady sits in the pub and reads about Nicole and EJ's wedding. He slaps the newspaper down onto the table and stares.

Mia can't believe Nicole is threatening her. "It's not a threat," says Nicole, "It's a promise. Sydney could be put in foster care."

Mia vows not to let that happen, "I'll take that risk."

Rafe twiddles the St. Anne's medal and flashes back to the safe house when he discovered it. We then go through a mishmash of flashbacks and come back to Rafe, who knocks at Sami's door. Will answers. Rafe announces, "I have something for your mom."

Bo is beside himself in his hunt for Roman and Hope, "Let's go back to square one." Chadsworth leaves to get more info so Bo can proceed to square two.

Hope gasps, "The cell phones and radios are dead."

"What tipped you off," asks Roman.

"They don't work," says Hope.


Suddenly, the doorknob wiggles and officers Brady and Brady take their stations, hands held high, guns pointed toward the ceiling. Since the ceiling was just painted, Hope is pointing her gun in that direction so she won't possibly hit it if the gun goes off.

Nicole works on Mia. She says she thought she was tough as nails as a kid. She says Mia reminds her of herself. She now has everything she ever wanted after having a tough childhood. She tells Mia if she confesses she will ruin her whole life, "Don't make this mistake."

Roman and Hope stand like statues with their firearms at the ready. You'd almost think they know what they are doing. The door cracks open.

Mia decides to get her baby. She leaves. Nicole stares.

Max works at a table. The new waitress Arianna comes up to him and talks hot sauce. Max flirts as Melanie comes in and starts ordering Arianna around, "You can take my order. I'm starving."

Will says Sami is out running errands, "She also said she was going to go see a friend. I thought it was you." Rafe says he is there to drop off the medal. "I'll see you soon," says Will. Rafe stares. Will figures Something's up, "...or not. Why do I get the feeling I'll never see you again?"

Rafe says, "Your mom and I, uh..."

Will asks, "What? She dumped you?"

Rafe sighs, "Like a ripe sack of garbage on a hot summer day."

Brady flashes back to his conversation with Melanie. He stands at the pier and reads about the wedding. He tosses the paper in the trash and huffs off.

Bo rants into his phone, "Why wasn't I brought up to speed? As soon as you hear from Roman or Hope you call me." He hangs up and has another vision of Hope's Roman Holiday, "Where are you fancy face?"

The doorknob continues to wiggle. The door to the sleazy hotel room opens as officers Brady and Brady stand ready. The maid walks in carrying linens. Roman and Hope spring. Hope aims her gun at the floor and fires a warning shot. You got it. She hits the maid right between the eyes. The maid drops like a load of bricks and blood and brain chunks spatter everywhere. Hope stoops to inspect the maid, who is deader than the Guiding Light. She looks up at Roman, "We're going to have to order extra towels."

Hope gets up and runs to the window. She looks out, "Another car just pulled up."

"What tipped you off," asks Roman.

"The car that's sitting there that wasn't there before," says Hope.


Nicole stops Mia and gives her a family portrait of her, EJ and Sydney, to give to Sydney later, "No matter where she ends up."

Mia asks, "What do you mean by that? You're trying to scare me."

"No," says Nicole, "I've learned you can't fix some things. The truth is you could lose Sydney to the system."

"I just wish this would all go away," says Mia.

A gal in the audience stands up and shouts, "SO DO WE!"

Nicole tells Mia she has a big decision to make, "What's it gonna be? Do you want Sydney in your life or not?"

The same gal leans over to her neighbor, "Speaking of Sydney, where the hell is she?"

Rafe insists Sami didn't dump him. Will says, "You have the I-just-got-dumped look."

How does a young guy like you know anything about that," asks Rafe.

"Because," says Will, "I've spent a lot of time with John, Marlena, Patch, Kayla, Tony, Anna..."


Rafe says he's leaving town and got another job. Grace cries as he starts to go. Rafe says he has extra time and can help.

Max introduces Melanie to Arianna. Melanie gets cut and orders mahi-mahi. She changes her order to a burger and fries and sits with Max as Arianna goes off. Max asks about Melanie's new job. "It's awful," she says, "It smells like a hospital and there are sick people everywhere."

CRASH!

Arianna stands in the middle of the mess across the room where a coffee cup has shifted ever so slightly.

SUPERMAX TO THE RESCUE!

Roman and Hope stand poised at the window. Hope says, "We gotta get ready."

Roman says, "Let's do it."

Prevuze

Mia decides she can't risk losing Sydney forever. She says she's going to keep Nicole's secret and leaves. Nicole shuts the door, looks up and says a little prayer, "Thank you!"

A knock at the door interrupts Nicole's moment of contemplation. She opens it.

Brady stands there and gives her a look, "I heard you praying, Nicole. Do you believe in the hereafter?"

Nicole whispers, "Yes, Brady, I do."

"Then you know what I'm here after."


Nicole invites him in. He says he heard her arguing with Mia and asks what happened.

"None of your business."

Brady reminds her, "It was my business a couple months ago."

Nicole evades. Brady tells her to stop lying.

Dr. Max examines Arianna. He decides she will live as Chelsea walks in and sees him actually touching her. Trouble in paradise...

Bo is on the phone, "Mommy will be home soon."

"I Hope I still have time for a clean getaway," says Ciara.

Chadsworth rushes up as Bo gets off the phone, "Commissioner Brady, there is something going down at the Hacienda Motel."

"Yeah," says Bo, "It's probably Hope."

Mia calls Will. She blubbers into the phone and asks if she can come over.

Nicole says she wants Brady to be happy for her today, "I'm getting married. You're supposed to (say it with her) be there for me. Can I have a little smile?"

Brady smiles then gets serious, "There is something I have to tell you."

Chelsea figures Arianna is the new waitress.

"What tipped you off," asks Max.

"Her badge says, 'I'm your waitress, Arianna.'"

Max makes the intros. Chelsea tries to be friendly but establish Max as her property at the same time, "If Max ever gives you a hard time let me know and I'll straighten him out." Arianna leaves. Chelsea and Melanie banter. The brat says Max looked like a doctor when he was tending to Arianna.

"Why would you say that," says Max.

"Because you were copping feels left and right just like Dr. Dan."


Melanie struts up, "He will be a doctor after a few years of dissecting corpses." She drops the bomb, "Max is going to med school?"

Rafe bounces Grace and pesters Will about the phone call. Will evades as Rafe hands Grace over. Rafe tells her, "Don't SORAS too fast on me." Rafe and Will says their goodbyes.

Once again, Roman and Hope stand at the ready with their firearms held high. There is a knock at the door. With her dying breath, the maid lying in the middle of the room looks up and warns the person behind the door, "Hope isn't aiming her gun at you. That means you're in her line of fire. RUN!" Immediately, the person behind the door heads for the nearest broad side of a barn.

Brady tells Nicole she will never be happy with EJ.

Max thanks Melanie for spreading the news. Chelsea wonders if Max was ever planning to tell her. "Probably not," says the dimwit.

Brady... Nicole... Closer... Closer... Closer... Nicole whines, "It's my wedding day... I can't. Let's wait until tomorrow." Brady tries to convince her not to marry EJ.

Nicole insists she loves EJ, "It's not a perfect love and it's dysfunctional but still..."

Brady gasps, "I need you."

Nicole says, "You need to find someone with no baggage. Please leave. You've walked away from me before. I'm sure you can do it again."

Mia has joined Will.

Brady says, "We don't need to talk about the past. That's what flashbacks are for." Nicole says if marrying EJ is damning her life, she has to accept that and so does Brady.

Max says he didn't tell Melanie. She went through his stuff. He insists he didn't lie to Chelsea. She insists he didn't tell her the truth either. Max says he didn't say anything because he wasn't sure he would get in. He says he cares about her and cares about what she thinks. She assures him he will be accepted and will be a fantastic doctor.

Mia sulks. She came over to tell Will she can't tell him what's on her mind. He tells her he's babysitting and invites her to watch DVDs.

CRASH! SLAM! SCUFFLE!

Hope fires at the intruder. Fortunately, she was aiming straight at him and at point-blank range, so she misses him by a country mile. IT'S BO! Hope rushes and looks out the window, "I'll be damned, you took them all down!"

"What tipped you off," asks Bo.

"Six or seven dead bodies strewn around in the alley," says Hope.


Roman goes to help with booking. Hope smooches Bo who picks the paper up and sees the date, "I'll be damned."

Brady says he knows Nicole has made her decision. Nicole tells him he doesn't want to waste his life on her, "Find someone who deserves you. There has to be some crack whore out there somewhere for you." Smoochies ensue. Brady leaves. Nicole bawls.

Outside, Brady stares and walks off. Inside, Nicole falls apart.

Melanie interrupts Max and Chelsea and asks Max if he's turning in the application to med school. Max thinks he will. Melanie leaves. Chelsea insists from now on Max has to tell her everything, "We promised we'd always tell each other the truth."

Max shrugs, "OK, I missed an easy layup."

Chelsea moves in, "An easy layup, yes... an easy lay, no."

Hope explains the robe. Bo says his visions were correct, but wrong about why Hope and Roman were at the motel room. Hope says now he should know he can trust her enough to tell her everything, "That's the most important thing... Us... Together... No annoying little kids..."

Will brings Grace out and tells Mia, "I'm glad you're here. Mom has been gone a while and I'm tired from holding her"

"You aren't tired," says Mia, "You just want me to hold her."

"That's because you want to," says Will. He hands her off.

Brady wanders around the town's only park bench. Melanie finds him and says she wants to help. Brady don' need no stinkin' help. Melanie moves in and helps Anyway... helps herself, that is. They paw around on each other and suddenly things aren't so bad for Brady.

Nicole tries on her veil. We flash over to Mia holding Grace. Back to Nicole, "I'm getting married today. And nothing's going to stop me."

OHMYGOD! They're all Stoned. Is this some kind of Drug deal? Yes, Hope finally got it right....it is a DOOL meeting but apparently they got skunked weed. Because this crap stinks!

One word to sum up this episode...wait for it...wait for it....

BORING!

Thank the gods for Prevuze. Otherwise, where else would I find such great entertainment making fun of such horrific writing? Maybe the DOOL writers should practice their skills on horror flicks?

Speak up if any of you thought Roman and Hope were actually going to be doing the horizontal mambo? ***Crickets***

This wedding is going to take a month day to get completed. I have to agree, the writers are smoking something because the whole show stinks! I think May sweeps are going to be just as boring as Novembers were. Thank God I can read prevuze and not watch this crap.

and suddenly things aren't so bad for Brady.Lol
More of just randomly pairing people off, eh? I likely won't be a fan of Brady and Melanie. Isn't he like, 30??

It's even worse than Chelsea and Dr. Awesome, because at least Chelsea has the semblance of a mature adult. Melanie is simply a child. End mini rant.

"Don't SORAS too fast on me." Rafe and Will says their goodbyes.Lol. She'll be Theo's age in a few years.

She insists he didn't tell her the truth either. Ugh, here we go with that 'I need everything you do and think.' Run, Maxwell.

~Hmm... so basically, Nicole says Brady deserves better than her, yet she has EJ marry her. So... she must not think very highly of EJ. Ah, well. Neither do I.

Chelsea insists from now on Max has to tell her everything
- Every thought will be hers.
Flee, Maxwell. Heh, I suppose Nick lucked out.

This episode appears to be ho-hum.
At least this Bo/Hope/Roman crap is done with... hopefully.

Other than the total HUH?! moment of Max going to med school, what a time-waster!! While Prevuze made the HoRo antics lol funny, it will be pathetic to watch.

As for that HUH?! moment - I’m sure every med school in the land will look at Max’s qualifications (race car driver, bartender, college drop-out) and snap him right up. I suppose this does give the actor time to leave for his new show. By the time it tanks, say 6-8 months from now, Max can return a full-fledged doc.

I laughed all the way through HoRo’s adventurous stake-out. I especially admired the deader than Guiding Light snark.

Einstein’s theory of trashy elevator monkey sex, Brady lusting after his former grandmother (weird but true), and stoned DOOL writer pictures were a hoot. But, you know, the show might be more interesting if the writers WERE stoned.

Thanks for the laughs Prevuze.

For those who might've missed the last of yesterday's Prevuze comments please refer to WingNut's reminder that I correctly predicted awhile back what Bo's Ho-Ro vision would turn out to be. And WingNut predicted Bo would get all bent out of shape over it. I don't know about WingNut, but do I possess Bo and Celeste's psychic abilities? No, I simply saw an old Barney Miller where Wojo and Linda Lavin's character were on a stakeout in a motel and had to jump into bed to pretend to be married. I figured this was just an example of DOOL going green by recycling some other show's old scripts. HAHAHAHA (However, were Ho-Ro actually in the bed at any point? If so I must've missed that.)

"By the time it tanks, say 6-8 months from now, Max can return a full-fledged doc." LOL over that one, Applecheeks. He won't be just any doc, either, but the next Chief of Staph.

My favorite Prevuisms: "Because," says Will, "I've spent a lot of time with John, Marlena, Patch, Kayla, Tony, Anna..." and "Commissioner Brady, there is something going down at the Hacienda Motel." "Yeah," says Bo, "It's probably Hope."Excellent Prevuze today, thanks!! :D

Also, I'm not clear on a storyline.

Is Kate trying to murder Chloe or is she simply trying to incapacitate her? Or is this some other nefarious scheme I don't know about.

She tells Mia if she confesses she will ruin her whole life, "Don't make this mistake."Once again Nicole proves she is the Queen of Me. It would be really nice if Mia – or anyone for that matter – would call Nicole’s bluff.

Hope aims her gun at the floor and fires a warning shot. You got it. She hits the maid right between the eyes. The maid drops like a load of bricks and blood and brain chunks spatter everywhere. Hope stoops to inspect the maid, who is deader than the Guiding Light. She looks up at Roman, "We're going to have to order extra towels."OMG, this is the finest DOOL drama ever written!! Wait it second. It’s in italics. Thanks Prevuze for writing something that sounds interesting.

"I just wish this would all go away," says Mia.

A gal in the audience stands up and shouts, "SO DO WE!"
Amen!

Brady gasps, "I need you."Why?!! He would end up with Lucas, EJ, Victor, and a thousand porn actors’ sloppy seconds.

Brady don' need no stinkin' help. Melanie moves in and helps Anyway... helps herself, that is. They paw around on each other and suddenly things aren't so bad for Brady.This sounds incredibly nauseating. Melanie is 18 going on 2 1/2, and she’s making out with Chloe’s former druggie ex-husband. Yuck! It would appear the writers have been into that stash of Acapulco gold and hitting it hard. If that pairing wasn’t proof enough, they’re sending Max off to medical school.

Thanks for taking another one for the team Prevuze!

Bo says his visions were correct, but wrong about why Hope and Roman were at the motel room. Hope says now he should know he can trust her enough to tell her everything, "That's the most important thing... Us... Together...You've got to be kidding me! A month and a half of visions and flashbacks to visions and spats back and forth between Bo and Hope and Bo and Roman about something that hadn't happened yet, and this is the BIG payoff? I think I almost would have preferred that Bo walked in on Ho-Ro in bed and flew off the handle. At least then there could have been some point to the last month and a half of this story-line!

Geez - would somebody wake me up when Dena comes up with a semi-interesting story line? I need a LOOOOONG nap.

Wingnut - unfortunately you might be taking a very long nap indeed if you are waiting for writing and/or a storyline that is interesting. Dena is not known to have talent or an original interesting thought. Hell I would settle for an unoriginal thought if it was remotely interesting. I feel like the groundhog who came out of his hole, and saw more horrible writing. This is going to be a long winter..I mean year. Back to my hole.
