Let The Games Begin

Stephanie continues her vigil in Phillip's room. Phillip twitches. Stephanie's face lights up as she proclaims her prayers have been answered. Suddenly, Phillip's machines go berserk, as does Stephanie.

Victor confronts Stefano. He accuses him of putting out the hit on Phillip. Stefano tries to brush it off, but Victor tells him it's just the beginning of the – dare I say it... vendetta between them. Kate comes up. Stefano walks off. Kate says she got a call telling her to come to the hospital, but like happens all the time in Salem, she didn't even ask why, she just headed for the hospital. Victor tells her about Phillip. Kate frets.

Phillip's machines flatline. Stephanie panics and picks up the phone, "Hello... operator... My boyfriend is dying, can you give me the number to Salem Hospital?"

Chloe and Nicole clean up after the wedding. Nicole wonders what's keeping EJ.

EJ says he will tell Sami what she wants to know if she tells him why she came to the church, "I know you are here because of us."

Victor tells Kate Phillip survived the surgery. Kate gasps, "The surgery? Where was he shot?"

"In his hotel room."

Kate asks if he will be OK. Victor says he doesn't know. Kate goes to call Lucas, but Victor tells her Brady already tried. Stefano comes in, "Katherine, I was sorry to hear about Phillip." Victor tells him to get out while he can still walk.

Bo arrives wearing his Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band Police Commissioner's Jacket. Victor announces, "Stefano put a hit on your brother."

Daniel and the crash cart team arrive in Phillip's room. Daniel backs everyone off.

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

Nicole says, "Uh, listen, I'm gonna go check on EJ... see what's going on."

Chloe says, "Nicole if you go out there, you are making huge mistake."

Out in the foyer, EJ wants to know the real reason Sami interrupted the wedding. He says he knows there is more between them than Johnny.

"What is it," asks Sami, "Spit it out."

"When you came back from the witless protection program and told me how grateful you were that I looked after the twins," says EJ, "I looked into your eyes and saw more than gratitude. The same goes for me. Then you turn up here with a last ditch attempt to stop this wedding."

Sami gasps, "You think I came here because I'm still in love with you?"

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

Stephanie bawls, "Is he OK?"

"No," says Daniel, "He's still only medium rare. I'm going for well done, MORE JUICE!"

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

Another doc escorts Stephanie out. Stephanie stands outside the room and has a meltdown.

Bo tries to get Victor and Stefano to calm down. Kate gets faint and he helps her sit. Victor tells him this was a professional hit. Kate wants to know if it is true Stefano was involved. Chaos ensues.

Stephanie staggers out as the four of them bicker, "Doesn't anyone care about Phillip?" Silence. "I'll take that as a 'no.'"

Chloe wants Nicole to back off, "You're married now."

"Right," says Nicole, "I have to get into the swing of nagging him to death."

Chloe gives a pep talk, "You are the one who married prince charming, not Sami. You have his baby, not Sami." Suddenly Nicole remembers to tell Chloe about Phillip.

EJ says he loved Sami so much but he's married now and there is no future between them. "You are out of your friggin' mind," says Sami.

Stephanie tells everyone about Phillip's code blue. Kate wants to go to him. Victor says they will just get in the way. Stephanie blubbers.

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

Daniel screams, "It's not working. We're not going to lose him. Gimme two epi..."

Nicole tells Chloe Phillip may not make it. Chloe bashes Nicole for not telling her sooner, "Who would shoot Phillip? I have to call Lucas."

Sami tells EJ he's full of it. EJ reminds her she is a little irrational and might have interrupted the wedding for that reason. Sami gets defensive. EJ wonders what other reason she would have had for stopping the wedding. Grace squeaks and Sami checks her out.

Bo is on the phone with Jenkins, and tells him he's the lead on the investigation. Victor reports that there is no report. Kate vows not to lose her son.

Chloe says she had to leave a message for Lucas, and heads for the hospital. Nicole bounces Sydney around, "Now it's just you and me. You and the one... the only... Mrs. EJ DiMera."

EJ and Sami continue to go round why she interrupted the wedding. "Maybe I just wanted a cheap thrill," says Sami, "And I know the DiMeras did this to Phillip. I'm just grateful the killer you hired was incompetent."

"So," says EJ, "You think the guy who did this was either a Salem cop or a DOOL writer?" Sami informs him that Phillip isn't dead.

Stefano calls and leaves a message for EJ, "I have news."

Bo tells Victor he's ordered a guard for Phillip's room. Stefano says he doesn't appreciate the accusations.

Victor lunges for him, "Why don't you appreciate the short time you have on this earth?" Bo holds him back.

Daniel comes out with the look of death on his face. "I have news..."

People gasp and gather round. Daniel announces he got Phillip's heart restarted and he is stable for now, but says he is concerned about internal bleeding, "Every hour he survives increases his chances."

"Are you talking about DOOL hours or real hours," asks Kate. Daniel tells them Phillip can't have visitors, "We have to leave his room clear for the second attempt on his life." Everyone bows to Dr. Lordgodalmighty, who assures them he is doing everything he can.

Bo tells Stephanie he needs info. He asks for a description of the shooter.

Kate rages at Stefano. He tries to smooth things over, "Katherine..."

SLAP!

Prevuze

Nicole is on the phone telling the caterers to put things on hold. She hangs up and says to Sydney, "If Phillip is dead, I guess there won't be a party. I wonder what your daddy is doing that is more important than out wedding."

EJ says it's great news that Phillip isn't dead. "If the cops don't get you first then Victor will," says Sami. She leaves. EJ chases as Nicole comes out. EJ stops and sweats.

Nicole asks, "Is everything OK, EJ?" They joke around and then Nicole zones in on the big question, "So who were you talking to all this time?"

Sami is back at her place talking to Grace, "I'm glad I realized my mistake before I told EJ the truth."

Will overhears, "The truth bout what?"

Sami jumps out of her shoes, "If you sneak up on me again you are grounded for life! I meant the truth about Nicole's wedding dress. She looked like a real housewife from orange county and I decided not to say anything."

Will tells her Rafe came by. That gets Sami's interest. Will gives her the St. Anne's medallion.

Kate insists she despises Stefano. Stefano denies all. Kate rants and huffs off.

Stephanie tells Bo what happened. He says he wants her to come to the station later. Chloe rushes up and Stephanie fills her in. Dr. Bo assures them Phillip will make it.

The nurse gives Daniel Phillip's test results. Daniel stares at the report and drags out his look of death again.

Phillip lies in his dark room.

EJ claims he was saying goodbye to guests. As he reels off the names of guests who weren't there or who left early, Nicole corrects his mistakes, which is her job now that she's his wife. She asks about the reception. EJ thinks they might need to cancel it.

Bo says, "Phillip will get through this. He made it out of Iraq alive."

"Alive, yes," says Stephanie, "In one piece, no."

Stefano tries to smooth things over with Kate. Kate blows her stack, "You are dead to me."

Bo comes up and wants Stefano to answer questions. Kate leaves.

Stefano tells Bo he was at the wedding when it happened. Bo wants to know if he contacted anyone while he was there, "You might as well tell me. I will find out. Technology is amazing these days. It would be even more amazing if I understood it."

Daniel orders more tests. Victor wonders if something besides the gunshot is wrong.

Nicole tells EJ she already put a hold on things at Chez Rouge. EJ congratulates her for always being one step ahead. He says people have already started suggesting the DiMeras are involved in Phillip's shooting. She tells him people can think what they want, "I'm a DiMera now. When people say things about the DiMeras they're insulting me, too." EJ sends her to put Sydney in the car and says he will be out later. She leaves and EJ makes a call.

Sami contemplates the St. Anne's medal and asks what Rafe said.

Will devolves into the typical teenager, "I don't know... nuthin' I guess."

"NOTHING?"

Will reevaluates, "Well...People stuff." He turns to leave and Sami asks him where he is going. "To the batting cage. I have to work on my swing."

After Will leaves, Sami twiddles the necklace and remembers asking Rafe why he turned down the job... and his kiss. She pops back to reality and tells Grace, "He cares about me. He has to, right?" She decides to call him and finds his number has been disconnected.

Bo again asks if Stefano was communicating with anyone during the wedding. Stefano gets indignant. He tells Bo to call his lawyer and leaves. Bo chants, "Let the games begin."

Kate, Stephanie and Victor gather round Daniel for more information. Daniel says he's having the test run again, "But if the results are correct, there is a serious complication."

We pan out from Phillip in his dark room...

EJ leaves a message for Stefano, "Apparently our package didn't arrive on time. If it doesn't get there on it's own I'll take care of it personally." Nicole soaks it in.

hmmm maybe it was just wishful thinking, but I was kindof hoping for more drama out of the EJ and Sami scenes. But in typical WTF is Dena doing, nope same old crap different day.

God help Phillip if Dr. Dan is involved in his case. Things don't look good for him. But in typical Dena fashion we know he will live.

I am not sure how the wedding could have lasted 3 episodes. It wasn't that dramatic. I often wonder if the writers even watch the show they are writing for? Anyone else wanted to hear a little Billy Idol "nice day for a white wedding"? Because let me go on record here and say that the song they played during the Phillip and Steponme sex scenes was god awful. (sorry if this insults anyone - maybe it was the context in which I heard it). And what was up with the dramatic film license taken for that scene by the way? Horrible, I am still cringing even though Prevuze talked about this a days ago.

DOOL - continues to prove why it does not deserve to be on tv.

P.S. What the frack is up with Lucas's hair??? It's styled like a cheap porn movie from the 70's?

~Actually Dr. Dan seems to have have a lower death rate than Lexie, Philip may be sterile afterward though.

Suddenly, Phillip's machines go berserk, as does Stephanie.Obviously Stephanie's voice is killing Philip.

Chloe and Nicole clean up after the wedding. Nicole wonders what's keeping EJ.As wealthy as the Dimera's are, don't they have... servants or something?

"Who would shoot Phillip?"Duh! Prince Charming, of course.

~Ah, Stefano's marriage proposal. I forgot all about that, and apparently Stefano did as well. lol

He says people have already started suggesting the DiMeras are involved in Phillip's shooting.How many people heard them swearing revenge against Philip, and Stefano all but admitted it. Nicole really thinks they're innocent? This is all incredibly asinine. Even if they didn't have Philip shot, there's just too much evidence to the contrary to believe otherwise.

Is there no logic or reasoning with this show??

really I agree with Berg, reading this I just knew EJ and sami could have done more with that and he was on to her again, ofcourse she loves him. that thing with Rafe is sweet and all but he should just be a friend to Sami. The more I think of it the more I find Nicole stupid for marrying a man who declares his love for another woman on his WEDDING DAY to her.
those are just my two cents however

EJ says he loved Sami so much but he's married now and there is no future between them. "You are out of your friggin' mind," says Sami.It’s a good thing that Chloe stopped Nicole from checking out what’s going on. A newly married woman certainly wants to hear her husband declaring to his ex that he really loved her, and they have no future because he’s married. Geez!

Chloe bashes Nicole for not telling her sooner, "Who would shoot Phillip?”Once again Chloe proves she’s dumber than a box of rocks.


“I'm just grateful the killer you hired was incompetent."

"So," says EJ, "You think the guy who did this was either a Salem cop or a DOOL writer?"
At least a Salem cop can be trusted to write a parking ticket. It hasn’t been proven that a DOOL scribe can write anything.

The nurse gives Daniel Phillip's test results.The test results show that Phillip is down a couple of pints, and the ball joints in his leg are loose.

She pops back to reality and tells Grace, "He cares about me. He has to, right?…and it will really piss off EJ if I drag him back to Salem.” Here we go again! Double geez!

There is good news in the episode - the wedding is over! As for the better news, there were no wedding pictures. Since it looks like the Exxon Valdez oil spill was cleaned up with EJ’s hair, it’s probably best that there are no photos to memorialize his overly lubricated coif. Now for the bad news - no reception!! After that service, the guests should have been knocking each other out of the way as the charged to the open bar. I wonder if Berg’s gift bag included airline size bottles of everyone’s favorite libation. If not, it certainly should have included a cigarette to go with the blindfold. Bring on the firing squad and make all of this go away! Where’s a shirt-free Brady when you need him? Since the guy isn’t getting any, he must have time to work out his frustrations out at the gym. From the looks of him, he must a lot of time. I wonder if that gym also has a chest waxing service. Good grief!

Cfish, it looks like Pookie is getting more cocktails that the guests!!! Prevuze thanks for another stellar update!!

Klaus, I'm embarrassed for you! Think about what you just said! Now write, "I will not try to infuse logic and reasoning into DOOL" on the board 100 times!

And Prevuze -- I thought I would choke on my tea when I saw the picture of Brady and his scars! Next time I'll just spit it out onto the keyboard like everyone else!

Cfish. I know. It took a bit for me to get, because that plot point is beyond moronic.

I was hoping for a smidgen of logic.

but says he is concerned about internal bleedingIs Dr. Dan concerned enough to go in and stop it? Inquiring minds…

He does seem to have a smokin’ hot rod though. Good pic, Prevuze.

Cfish – LOL @ Pookie in the Kate zone – I see Pookie not only had a sex change but a beagle make-over. Radical!

Will overhears, "The truth bout what?" Sami jumps out of her shoes, "If you sneak up on me again you are grounded for life!Hey, lady! How about not talking out loud about things you don’t want anyone else to know?

I got a laugh out of, "Are you talking about DOOL hours or real hours," asks Kate?"CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP!Oh, that was for Philip. I thought someone was trying to shock the comatose audience awake. Or of the audience “zapping” through the episode.

My motto DOOL? It’s “Zap or Be Zapped”. Praise be for Prevuze who takes the zap for all of us.

I suppose Phillip will be paralyzed so we the viewers can suffer thru the whole pity-party of him rejecting Stephanie so she won't be burdened with him, etc. etc. Well it would fit in with their recycling scripts program. All they'd have to do is pull up the old "I vant to be alone" scripts from when Julie/Carrie/Chloe had scarred faces.

And I wasn't sure if Prevuze meant Nicole and Chloe were cleaning themselves up after the wedding or the church. If it was the church I agree with you, Klaus, what member of the wedding party does that? - Particularly the bride?

LOL over the Kate/Stefano picture. I forgot about the wedding proposal, too! And I can't wait to see Bo's Sgt. Pepper jacket.
HAHAHAHA

Excellent Prevuze today!

I actually wish they would leave Sami out of EJ and Nicole's wedding. I like the two of them together, they suit each other. They could have a lot of great story lines, two of them with no scruples and the world to be conquered.

We will, of course assume that's what you have HEARD about cheap'70s porn movies.

It is a common occurrence to have the DOOL writers give me a wide opening to walk through and insert a searing Prevuzism, but it is indeed rare when one of my intelligent readers does so. However, when it happens, I am DUTY BOUND to follow through...

but says he is concerned about internal bleeding. Is Dr. Dan concerned enough to go in and stop it? Inquiring minds…

He does seem to have a smokin’ hot rod though.

Thanks, I appreciate that, but really it depends on your point of view. To me, the comments are my entertainment. I usually read them while I am on my treadmill. They're even more entertaining when they help me forget the deep pain I'm in. :)

Good for Pookie!

Dear Prevuze - please help me as I am confused. I have seen a lot of positive comments on other boards about recent episodes.

Is everyone watching the same show?

I had to laugh out loud at the "Dr. Lordgodalmighty" line. That was good.
A few days ago at some event, EJ's name was given as Elvis Aaron DiMera. We know he's not a Junior. So, what does J. stand for?
