Sami The Psycho

Phillip sleeps. The hotel room door opens. Masi walks in and aims.

ZIP!

Phillip has a body earthquake. Stephanie comes out and screams. Masi aims at her.

ZIP!

The neverending wedding ceremony continues. Father Matt says, "Now, by the power..."

Sami interrupts, "WAIT!"

This sparks an argument between the lovebirds. EJ turns to Sami, "What are you doing here?"

Melanie doctors Brady. Somehow he manages to live. We discover the real medical personnel in the hospital have all rushed to attend to a bus crash (Well, that makes sense. I'm sure the doctors in that hospital would be better at repairing buses than treating patients). Melanie says she thinks she's getting good at dealing with all the blood at the hospital. She nearly breaks down and lectures Brady for almost getting killed. Brady promises he won't go back to the church, "I know for better or for worse that wedding was meant to be."

Masi takes aim so he can pump another round into Phillip. His gun jams. Stephanie screams, "Somebody help us!" Dickens and Fenster, the maintenance guys, come in. Stephanie panics. Phillip hovers near death.

Nicole asks, "What the hell are you doing here, Sami? How dare you interrupt my wedding!"

Silence. EJ looks at Sami, "Say something."

"Yeah," says Sami, "Sorry. I had to come."

father Matt steps in, "Is there a problem?" EJ tells father Matt to take a hike as he, Nicole and Sami leave to have a pow-wow. Out in the foyer they bicker. Nicole blows up, "The pathetic drama queen here wants to make sure she ruins our wedding."

"It's not about that," says Sami, "It's a bout something entirely different."

Stephanie begs Phillip to hang on. Dickens calls the hospital. Fenster gripes about having to repair the holes in the wall. Stephanie wails, "Be strong! Do it for me!"

"I will," says Fenster.

Prevuze

Brady congratulates Melanie for being a true Florence Nightingale. Melanie says she can tell Nicole is important to Brady, "I can see it in your eyes – That and a lot of bruises and blood." She rambles on about EJ, Nicole, Brady and whatever else she can come up with. Brady tries to stop the Hurricane Melanie, so she agrees to stop talking about it, "I just wish... that my friend wasn't in love with someone who doesn't love him back." Brady insists his love life is his business, but tells her he's moving on. He leaves.

Inside, the crowd in the sanctuary watches a Russian dancing bear act for entertainment while Sami, Nicole and EJ continue to argue out in the vestibule. Stefano tells Chloe he doesn't know and doesn't care why Sami is there.

Sami asks EJ to speak privately. EJ refuses, "Whatever you say to me you can say to my wife."

Sami sneers, "Well, she's not exactly your wife yet, is she?"

Nicole tells EJ Sami is playing mind games, "Throw her out!" Nicole starts to take on that responsibility but EJ stops her.

Inside the sanctuary, the guests form a Conga line to pass the time. Lexie and Chloe try to stop Stefano from butting in. Flunky #2 walks up and whispers something in Stefano's ear.

Victor sits on his couch and contemplates a but of Aristotle or some such person, "$48,000. Well, it looks like a relative." He gets a call, "What? Phillip? I'm on my way!" As he runs out, he drops the bust and it shatters.

FOR SALE: ONE SLIGHTLY DAMAGED BUST. $47,999 DISCOUNT. CALL MR. V. KIRIAKIS FOR DETAILS."

Melanie volunteers to drive Brady home.

Suddenly, the the EMT's wheel Phillip in, "Artificial blood! Stat! " Stephanie follows and falls apart. Melanie comforts. Brady looks confused.

EJ stops Nicole's left hook. He turns to Sami, "What is it you want to say?"

"OK," says Sami, "Here it is..."

POP QUIZ!

What happens next is:

a) Sami tells EJ he is Grace's father.
b) Nicole comes clean about the baby switcheroo.
c) Once the dancing bear act is finished, Lexie rushes out and announces Phillip has been shot.
d) Both a and b, resulting in some actual plot movement.

If you answered a, b or d, you flunk DOOL 101.

The correct answer is c,
Lexie rushes out, "PHILLIP KIRIAKIS HAS BEEN SHOT!"

Sami stares daggers at EJ, "You bastard!"

Back in the hospital waiting area, Stephanie tells what happened in the hotel room, "OMG I love him so much!" Brady tries to comfort her. Melanie comes up with clothes so Stephanie can get out of her bloody robe. She takes her off.

Inside the OR, the surgeons work on Phillip. "Quick," says a surgeon, "More crazy glue! His artificial spleen is shattered."

Chloe tells Stefano Lexie left because of an emergency, "Someone was shot."

Stefano whispers, "Tsk... tsk... tsk... What a violent world we live in."

Sami says EJ is unbelievable and runs out. EJ starts after her and insists he didn't have Phillip shot. Nicole stops him, "EJ, are you running after Sami or are you going to marry me? It's one or the other." EJ apologizes. Nicole questions him about Phillip getting shot, "It doesn't have anything to do with you or me does it?"

Lexie rushes in and finds Stephanie and Melanie in the waiting area. They tell her Phillip is in surgery. Lexie asks, "Who is the surgeon?"

"Dr. Richmond," says Melanie.

"He's a thoracic surgeon," says Lexie, "That means Phillip must have been shot in the... uh... thorass." Lexie heads for the OR.

Brady says he didn't want this to happen, "When grandfather gets here we have to be strong for him." He goes to call Kate. Stephanie thanks Melanie for (say it with her) being there.

"Sometimes," says Florence Nightingale, "When it's dark and you're scared you just need someone to hold onto."

Victor rushes in, "Is he all right."

Dr. Melanie answers, "He's in great shape except for a hole the size of the Holland Tunnel in his heart."

EJ says Phillip getting shot has nothing to do with them. Nicole says, "It's a horrible thing, on top of having to deal with Sami the Psycho trying to ruin our wedding. This is our day. All those other things can just work themselves out. Including Phillip. Let's go back in there and finish so we can be Mr. and Mrs. DiMera."

"Let's do it."

In they go. The dancing bears finish. EJ announces they will continue and everyone applauds.

Sami the Psycho calls the hospital, "I'm calling about Phillip Kiriakis. This is his sister Cassie. I just need to know how he is doing."

Father Matt continues, "If there be any reason why any person knows this couple should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now or forever hold your peace." Silence... third time's a charm... Father Matt pronounces them husband and wife.

Lexie announces that Phillip lost a lot of blood, "We need donors." She shows them the sign which will be used in the campaign for more blood...

PHILLIP
NEEDS A
FILL UP

Lexie continues to fill them in, "His condition is critical and will remain so for 24 – 36 hours." Victor steps up and asks for Daniel to take over the case. "I see," says Lexie, "So that means you don't have any faith in me."

"If it weren't for your medical license," says Victor, "You'd be a serial killer."

Lexie turns to Stephanie, "When they brought Phillip in, he was semi-conscious. He said one word... Stephanie."

We pan up Phillip's body... what's left of it, that is.

Victor sits and remembers one of his Phillip-bashing sessions. Then he remembers talking to Stefano about him.

Stephanie asks to see Phillip. Lexie tells her OK, "Don't stay too long." Before she can rush in, Victor comes up to Stephanie and asks how the shooting happened. Brady tries to back him off.

Father Matt introduces Mr. & Mrs. EJ DiMera, "You may kiss the bride."

Outside, Sami tells Grace she's sorry, "I wish you didn't have to be here for this but there is something I have to do."

Stefano tells EJ he's going to the hospital but won't be late for the reception. EJ wonders if there should be a reception under the circumstances, "We don't want it to look like we're dancing on Phillip's grave."

"Of course not," says Stefano, "See you later."

Stephanie tells Victor about the shooting. She says she was in the shower and didn't hear the shot, "The gunman shot at me but hit me right in the brain, so there was no damage."

Victor figures there was a silencer on the gun, "Go in and see him now. Tell him I love him."

Victor looks at Brady's face, "What happened to you? You look like you got put through a meat grinder. Did a DiMera thug do this? Face the facts. Get some spine or leave me alone. Today the DiMeras tried to kill my son and beat up my grandson!"

EJ walks out of the sanctuary and sees Sami.

Stephanie comes into Phillip's room and bawls, "Phillip, it's Stephanie, I'm here." Silence. Stephanie flashes back to tender moments, "Please come back to me, Phillip. We just found each other. I love you."

Phillip twitches.

Brady tells Victor he thinks this is the time to stay calm. Victor thinks it's the time to go off and think. Brady and Melanie go off for coffee. Stefano arrives and Victor has a meltdown, "You SOB! This was you! Your son died because he was clumsy so you decide to have my son murdered!"

Stefano asks, "The pain is unbearable, isn't it?"

Victor flies into a rage, "This isn't over! This is just the beginning!"

Phillip's head rolls to the side. Phillip drools. His machines go berserk. Instead of going for help, Stephanie stands there and falls apart.

Nicole tells Chloe Sami tried to ruin the wedding, but didn't say anything in the vestibule. Nicole wonders where EJ is.

Out in the foyer, EJ asks Sami why she came back. Sami says, "I want to hear you tell me the truth – that you were behind Phillip Kiriakis shooting."

"I'll tell you what you want to know," says EJ, "but in return you tell me why you interrupted the wedding. I already know the answer, but I'd like to hear it from you."

ZIP!

Phillip has a body earthquake.
I feel the earth move under my feet, I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down - Wow Prevuze starts off with a BANG! I mean a ZIP!

Poor Brady - he odds are better to live with that horrific face paint than if a Salem doctor touched him with some makeup remover. (Well, that makes sense. I'm sure the doctors in that hospital would be better at repairing buses than treating patients). I couldn't agree more. Anyone else surprised that Max aka Dr. Quincy, MD couldnt' have stepped in to help?

Inside, the crowd in the sanctuary watches a Russian dancing bear act for entertainment Seriously? HA! But more entertaining than this crap for sure.

"Artificial blood! Stat!" Proof that all of Phillip's body parts have been made bigger and stronger and are artificial. Hey a girl can dream.

c) Once the dancing bear act is finished, Lexie rushes out and announces Phillip has been shot. Anytime there is a dancing bear in the answer and with Higley's writing, you know that has to be the answer (sigh)

"Dr. Richmond," says Melanie.
oh how I wish this had said Dr. Max Brady!

Oh and the beat goes on....

This sparks an argument between the lovebirds. EJ turns to Sami, "What are you doing here?"At this point, it is apparent to everyone except EJ that Sami is not there to stop the wedding or tell him that he’s Grace’s father. It would appear that red herrings are plentiful in Salem’s river, lake, ocean, stream, or whatever, and the ever so clever DOOL writing team gleefully fishes them out at warp speed. In fact, it’s quite obvious that they are over fishing those nefarious little creatures. In this case, over fishing is not depleting the stock but it could very well make viewers extinct. Did you hear that Dena? That’s the sound of you digging DOOL’s grave as another viewer takes DOOL off his/her DVR or was that a Tivo?

Brady congratulates Melanie for being a true Florence Nightingale.…make that Cruella Deville.

Brady insists his love life is his business, but tells her he's moving on.…and how many times have we heard that line? Instead, we get yearning, needing, wanting, blah, blah, and blah.

Nicole tells EJ Sami is playing mind games.For that to work, someone in this little grouping would have to have a mind.

Suddenly, the the EMT's wheel Phillip in, "Artificial blood! Stat!"Thank goodness the EMT’s never bothered to show up at the bus accident but are there any doctors left in the hospital?!!! Wait!!!! Paging Dr. McCreepy, paging Dr. McCreepy!!!!

"He's a thoracic surgeon," says Lexie, "That means Phillip must have been shot in the... uh... thorass."Shot in the thorass and you’re to blame. You give love a bad name.

"Let's do it."If they “just do it”, maybe they can get Nike to sponsor the whole mess. Of course, they’ll also need to be wearing the sneakers with the swoosh.

EJ wonders if there should be a reception under the circumstances, "We don't want it to look like we're dancing on Phillip's grave."That will make up for dancing on Tony’s grave by not postponing the wedding.

"I'll tell you what you want to know," says EJ, "but in return you tell me why you interrupted the wedding. I already know the answer, but I'd like to hear it from you."…and just what do you think you know EJ? This ought to be really good. I can hardly wait…as if!!!

Thanks for the update Prevuze. It’s really brightened up my rainy Monday morning.

Stefano asks, "The pain is unbearable, isn't it?"And slightly different given that Victor appeared to actually care for his son. But who's keeping track of these things.

~Ha, so Nicole isn't nonplussed at all that the man she is about to marry just had someone shot... on their wedding day.

We just found each other. I love you."And a very creepy statement appears.

And where is Dr. Max, this could be some great experience.

Berg, you know better than to take anything in Prevuze seriously. The only real dancing bears in this episode are the ones dancing on Phillip's yet-to-be-dug grave

"Lexie rushes in. Who is the suregeon?" "Dr. Richmond," says Melanie." Now you know no real doctor worth their salt would rush in and even notice those two twits much less ask/say anything about the staff.

She's already butted into the wedding so go ahead and do what you came to do, Sami. Oh, wait. She can't - they have to drag it out for another month at least. Sorry.

Plus, this way we'll get to see some more on-the-spot police action from Ho, Dope and Pard. I can't wait to see Bo kick in the DiMera front door.

LOL over "The gunman shot me but hit me right in the brain, so there was no damage." and Phillip needs a fill up....GROANER! HAHAHAHA

Great Prevuze on a very groggy Monday. Thanks! :D

Shot in the thorass and you’re to blame. You give love a bad name.Oh, Leslie, you've done a very bad thing. Now I'll have Bon Jovi running through my head all day...wait, I guess that isn't too bad after all!!

Come on now Nicole where did you leave your brain? Her marriage is over allready regardless of what that minister just said. If the groom is still after all that so into Sami at that moment she can do just about anything and not keep him away from her.
And Sami stop doubted and say what you want to say
Why oh why did they have to drag Philip in this, I hate it. He is such a nice guy really, concidering who raised him and all

I do believe today is a musical comment version of Prevuze though Leslie one upped me because I can't get Bon Jovi out of my head. I also want to give a special shout out to Leslie again for At this point, it is apparent to everyone except EJ that Sami is not there to stop the wedding or tell him that he’s Grace’s father. It would appear that red herrings are plentiful in Salem’s river, lake, ocean, stream, or whatever, and the ever so clever DOOL writing team gleefully fishes them out at warp speed. In fact, it’s quite obvious that they are over fishing those nefarious little creatures. In this case, over fishing is not depleting the stock but it could very well make viewers extinct. Did you hear that Dena? That’s the sound of you digging DOOL’s grave as another viewer takes DOOL off his/her DVR or was that a Tivo? It's like we are twins. I could not have agreed more with you on this note.

Prevuze, for what its worth, I knew you were joking about the Russian dancing bear, I was just actually hoping it was true, because I would have felt like I not only had something to look forward to, but that I might (gasp!) actually be entertained, if I tuned in, for once. Also - what a jolting unexpected surprise it would be.

Lexie rushes in and finds Stephanie and Melanie in the waiting area. They tell her Phillip is in surgery. Lexie asks, "Who is the surgeon?"

"Dr. Richmond," says Melanie.

"He's a thoracic surgeon," says Lexie, "That means Phillip must have been shot in the... uh... thorass." Lexie heads for the OR.
So Lexie decides she has to show off her deductive reasoning skills to figure out where Phillip was shot instead of simply asking Stephanie, who was there when he was shot, where he was shot at.

I also loved the fact that Dr. Richmond must be a new doctor at Salem Hospital as evidenced by the fact that he only has one specialty. He's not a super-doc like Lexie and Dr. Grab-em-n-grope-em. Of course super-doc Lexie has to rush to the OR to scrub in and kill the patient...er save the day.

and just what do you think you know EJ? This ought to be really good. I can hardly wait…Leslie, haven't you watched enough DOOL to be able to predict this one yourself? My money says that the egotistical grease-ball thinks that Sami was going to say she still loves him and that's why she stopped the wedding.

What a crap-tastic start to another week of DOOL. Can it really be much longer for the airwaves unless they get rid of Dena and get a real writer?

I was late to Prevuze today, but it will help me get through a never-ending meeting I have later tonight. Meanwhile...

Bulldog's slam at Alphonso's jewelry - ouch! Bad dog! Bad dog!

Sami's one-sided flat tire and "Uncle Phil" were also chuckle worthy.

Father Matt steps in, "Is there a problem?"This is the fifth time this ceremony has come to a screeching halt. THAT has to be the understatement of the day.

Victor sits on his couch and contemplates a but of Aristotle or some such person.I realize that was a typo, but what a great visual that conjured.

"He's a thoracic surgeon," says Lexie, "That means Phillip must have been shot in the... uh... thorass."LMAO I bet that “but” of Aristotle has a thorass right about now too. Dr. Richmond – save some of that glue for the statue!

Just let me end by lamenting the poor crop of hit men gracing DAYS lately. The latest schmuck shot Philip point blank in the chest & still couldn't kill him. Then, from a range of all of five feet, he missed Stephanie.

Unfortunately, it appears to be a metaphor for DAYS' s/l's lately. They ALL miss the mark by a mile. Thank you, Prevuze. We can start calling you "Dead Eye" for giving us one great shot at DOOL after another.

This is almost as painful to read as it is to watch even though Prevuze is always stellar! And EJ looks like a real scumbag with that greasy hair. Not only do the writers make the actors sound like idiots they make them look awful. No wonder this stupid show is going to be cancelled. Then what will Prevuze cover instead? As The World Sucks... or maybe All My Wicked Stepchildren?
