D-E-A-D!

Brady comes to Arianna's rescue after Troy takes a hike. Arianna protests that Troy's advances were nothing. Brady wants to know what is going on. "You're overreacting," says Arianna.

Brady overreacts, "I AM NOT OVERREACTING!"

Daniel calls Kate and says he doesn't want things to end the way they did, "Tell me you don't either."

Nicole continues to try to call Stefano, "Stefano, why don't you answer your phone. I've called you ten times. I have to talk to you!" Busybody in training EJ wonders why she's calling Stefano. She says she wants to show him pictures of Sydney. EJ accuses her of hiding things.

Rafe sneaks into Dr. Baker's room and finds him ostensibly asleep in a chair. He tries to wake him up and finds he's been garroted. Bye-bye Baker.

Nicole defends herself and claims she's hiding nothing. EJ blows his brainless stack. Nicole bobs and weaves. EJ insists she tell him what's going on as Stefano watches in the background, "Tell him. You can't hide it forever as much as we would like to."

Rafe tries to rouse the doc. Baker's all choked up. Suddenly...

ATTACK!

The attacker, attired in his finest John Black superspy and cat-burglar outfit, complete with mask and do-rag, subdues Rafe. He leaves him unconscious with the incriminating rope in his hand.

Kate says she and Danny boy shouldn't be talking. "Maybe this story doesn't have to end," says Daniel, "Could be we've got a few more dark twists and turns left in it." Kate thinks he may be taping the conversation. Daniel denies that, "Here me out. I want you to know what's been going on with me these past few months and make you understand you can trust me." Kate tells him not to call back and hangs up.

Arianna tells Brady he doesn't need to worry about Troy. She says he apologized to her for his little attack, "He said he was high and couldn't control himself, but he's doing a 12-step and trying to get clean."

"OMG," gasps Brady, "A JUNKIE! How could anyone be crazy enough to get hooked on drugs without being married to Chloe? " Arianna continues to defend Troy. She says Brady has taught her people can change and deserve a second chance. Brady apologies and we have a hug-fest.

Stefano says he should be the one to explain since it's his fault. He tells Elvis they have been planning a surprise birthday party for him. EJ buys it. Apparently he's donated his brain to science before being done with it. He apologizes to Nicole. Sydney's crying interrupts and EJ goes to take care of things. He's going to find the same stuff in Sydney's diaper that Nicole and Stefano are pawning off on him.

Stefano accuses Nicole of losing her touch. Nicole claims everything is going to hell in a hand-basket and tells him about Baker's call. Stefano is smug, "Dr. Baker is not a problem of yours any more."

Rafe lies unconscious. Baker lies dead. Enjoy the quiet while you can because... Sami walks in and finds Rafe. She rushes toward him huffing, puffing and gasping like a drowning rat.

Kate wonders if Daniel is playing her. Her phone rings. Kate picks up and screams, "I TOLD YOU NOT TO CALL ME BACK!"

Lucas clears up the case of mistaken identity, "Mom, It's Lucas. I need your help deciding what to do with Chloe."

"Trash day is Monday," says Kate, "Just make sure you don't stick her in with the recyclables."

Daniel rants about Kate, "You're gonna feel what it's like to be played." Nathan and Melanie come up. Melanie says she has been trying to convince Nathan to be an accomplice in their re-Chloification project. Nathan says he isn't sure about this. He wonders if Daniel is just trying to finish the job.

Brady and Arianna suck face. "I wanna be alone with you," says Brady. Translation – never mind. I'm guessing you don't need a translation for that one.

"I want that, too," says Arianna.

So... the stage is set for a little extracurricular activity. Suddenly, Brady remembers, "I have some work to do. I have to go back home."

Two men in dark suits and sunglasses walk up, "Mr. Brady Black?"

"Yes, what is it?"

"We're here to confiscate your guy-card."


Arianna saves the day, "Your home is a mansion. If it's a mansion it ought to have twenty-some odd rooms and maybe we could find a place to be alone."

"Wow," says Brady, "You're beautiful and have great ideas."

Arianna says, "You have to think fast when you're with some guy who's so clueless he can't decide whether to scratch his watch or wind his butt."

"Let's go," says Brady, "and you can tell me about all of your good ideas."

"Maybe," says Arianna, "I could just show you."

Nicole asks, "Did you pay Baker off again?"

Stefano is evasive, "Not exactly."

Sami snivels as she stoops to check out Rafe. Rafe wakes and wonders what she's doing there. Sami sees Baker sprawled out in the chair, gets up and walks over to him...

"GASP-O-FREAK-O-PANT-WHIMPER-SCREAM!"

Daniel claims he did nothing wrong and just wants to save Chloe's life, "You have to help me! Let me remind you of the Hippocratic oath, DR. HORTON!"

"I may be a lot of things," says Nathan, "But I am not a hypocrite."

"If you say no," screams Daniel, "I will find a way. I am going to bring Chloe back. I am going to save her life with or without you."

Prevuze

Kate joins Lucas at the Cheatin' Heart. Lucas shows her Chloe's living will. How many of you thirty-somethings out there have a living will? "Maybe," says Lucas, "it's time we take her off life support."

Kate is blunt, "You just made me so happy."

Stefano says, "Nicole, you are overreacting."

Nicole overreacts, "I AM NOT OVERREACTING!"

He tells her he's having Rafe followed, "Perhaps we can kill two birds with one stone."

Sami blithers and blathers. Rafe has his hand over her mouth as Sami desperately tries to breathe and scream at the same time. Rafe tells her he won't take his hand away until she promises to stop screaming. Sami promises. Rafe removes his hand. Once the blue fades from Sami's face, she wonders what happened. Rafe says he can't tell her but he assures her he did not kill Baker. He wants her trust.

DOOL August 28, 2019: The Chad–Mia–Will triangle finally ends when Mia elopes with SORASed Johnny.


Back at the Kiriakis mansion, Brady is on the phone working business.

The two men in dark suits watch through the window. "That does it," says one of them, "let's go get that guy-card."

"Give him one more chance," says the other.


Arianna picks up a vase and juggles it. Brady carefully takes it from her and tells her it's a 2400 year old Greek vase, "It has a sentimental value to our family. Kate gave it to dad. She made it when she was in Kindergarten." Arianna is a little uncomfortable with the trappings of wealth. She thinks the differences could make for problems.

"Or, they could make things interesting," says Brady. Brady finally gets a clue and moves in for something interesting.

Outside, the two mysterious men watch, "OK," says one of them, "We'll drop it for now, but he's on double-secret probation."

Nathan tells Daniel he's in on the scheme. Melanie squeals and hugs Nate. He goes for copies of Chloe's medical files, which he left in the car. Daniel says he's happy with Melanie but she reminds him, "You were snarky to me at the hospital."

Daniel doesn't think that's the case, "I don't like snark. That's why I don't read Prevuze."

Melanie says they just have to get things moving because the clock is ticking. She tells him about Chloe's living will, "Lucas is going to pull the plug tonight."

Kate tells Lucas she is happy because this is the best thing to do, "Chloe isn't coming back, her mind is gone."

"She didn't need to go into a coma for us to realize that," says Lucas.

"I can't stand seeing you suffer," says Kate.

Lucas says there is one other consideration, "If Chloe dies, Daniel is looking at murder-one."

"Drat the bad luck," says Kate.

EJ comes back and asks to have a word with Nicole alone. Stefano leaves and EJ asks Nicole's forgiveness. She says she won't forgive him, because he has nothing to apologize for. Smoochies.

Sami, the twelve year old in an adult body, hyperventilates. She says she knows Rafe didn't kill Baker, but a knock interrupts. The twelve year old inside Sami goes to work again as she has another panic-fit.

Melanie tells Daniel about the possibility of taking Chloe off life support. Nathan comes back with Chloe's records. Daniel says he has to get in there. Nathan has an idea.

The knock is housekeeping. Rafe tells her to go away. He tells Sami this is a setup. Sami asks if Baker really is dead. "No one is ever really dead on this show," says Rafe.

Hilda's ghost sticks her head in the door, "You wanna bet?"

Rafe stoops down and inspects Baker's body.

Brady inspects something else. He suggests a swim. Awww. Arianna doesn't have a swimsuit. Awww... Neither does Brady. Whatever will they do?

Kate says they can't be certain Daniel will be convicted, "He put one over on us pretending to be happy for you and Chloe."

"Lying through his teeth," sneers Lucas. Kate thinks they need to concentrate on Lucas' difficult decision. Kate votes for pulling the plug... tonight.

Melanie approaches Dennis the cop. She flirts as Nathan goes into Chloe's room and leaves a hypo. He unlocks the side door. Melanie rambles as Nathan comes out. They both leave the area.

Daniel comes in via the side door that Nathan unlocked. Instead of getting the job done, he sits and obsesses over Chloe. I think he copped one, too.

Daniel finally takes the hypo and administers the antidote.

Lucas and Kate walk into the waiting area. Lucas hesitates, "I can't."

Kate gives him a pep talk, "Where would we be if the Jack-the-Ripper had an attitude like that?" Lucas goes to talk to the nurse. Once he's out of earshot, Kate announces, "I'm going in to see Chloe. For the last time."

Brady and Arianna cavort in a towel. Arianna says she's cold, but Brady is pretty sure he can warm her up.

One of the guys in a suit turns to the other, "If he goes for a cup of hot chocolate, he's through."

Rafe carefully takes the cell phone out of Baker's pocket. He has it covered with a handkerchief to make sure his fingerprints aren't on it, like they are on everything else in the room. He checks Baker's pulse.

Stefano interrupts EJ and Nicole. He says EJ has a call. EJ leaves. Nicole gets back to her tirade. Stefano says, "If you want blunt, I'll give you blunt. Baker is dead."

Nicole gasps, "What?"

"Dead," says Stefano, "D-E-A-D! It's over, Nicole"

Nicole's eyes go wide, "NO! It will never be over."

Brady and Arianna hit the chaise lounge. Brady fakes being a gentleman, "If you don't want this..."

Arianna is direct, "I don't... ... ... ...," time passes, "... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... want to stop."

Lucas finds Nathan and Melanie. He says he'll be in Chloe's room, "My mom is in there now." Nathan and Melanie make faces at each other.

Daniel pumps the liquid of life into Chloe, "I have to go. I can't get caught. I love you so much."

Kate stands outside, smiles at the guard and twists the latch to Chloe's room. And twists... and twists... and twists...

Nicole tells Stefano that Baker wrote a letter to the authorities revealing the switcheroo. "Who has this accursed letter," booms Stefano.

"His lawyer," says Nicole.

"Let's Hope to God it's Mickey."

We hear voices outside Baker's tomb, "This is a police matter." The people outside knock. Sami and Rafe head out the window.

And exactly what would be the cheesiest move the writers could come up with at this point? You got it...

Baker's finger twitches.

I flove EJ. I like Sami.

Only this set of writers could make someone as charismatic as Elvis BORING.

I've come to the conclusion that EJ and Rafe are indeed brothers.

Love the nod to classic SNL.

Word of the day is riatere. Ex: The best blog on the net is riatere.

He goes for a phone talk and comes back to apology to the liar liar Nicole..and hug, smoochies ect...

Brady overreacts, "I AM NOT OVERREACTING!"

Overacting – maybe, overreacting – never!

EJ accuses her of hiding things.

You think? Boy, nothing gets past EJ except the fact that Nicole was hiding her pregnancy from him for about six months. Geez!

The attacker, attired in his finest John Black superspy and cat-burglar outfit, complete with mask and do-rag, subdues Rafe.

Apparently Rafe flunked FBI Agent Hand-To-Hand Combat 101 because he came out second best every time he grappled with Sleazo too.

Sydney's crying interrupts and EJ goes to take care of things. He's going to find the same stuff in Sydney's diaper that Nicole and Stefano are pawning off on him.

…and

"Trash day is Monday," says Kate, "Just make sure you don't stick her in with the recyclables."

Prevuze is definitely on a roll!!!

Melanie says she has been trying to convince Nathan to be an accomplice in their re-Chloification project.

I hope that’s nothing like the Manhattan project.

Nicole overreacts, "I AM NOT OVERREACTING!"

Overacting – maybe, overreacting – never part deux!

It's a 2400 year old Greek vase, "It has a sentimental value to our family. Kate gave it to dad. She made it when she was in Kindergarten."

Prevuze you are toooooooooooo much! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

Melanie tells Daniel about the possibility of taking Chloe off life support.

Generally, life support includes a ventilator, intubation, feeding tube, etc. Except for a lot of hot air in the room, I haven’t seen any evidence of extreme life prolonging measures used to keep Chloe among the living or what passes as living on this soap.

Cheez Whiz – I will never look at a jar again without thinking of Dr. Baker’s twitching finger! TGIF and TGFP!!!!!!!!

Besides what thirty-something has a living will, what grieving husband meets their mom at a BAR to discuss pulling the plug? If they don't have a set for either Lucas or Kate's home, they could have them meet in a hospital waiting room or somewhere more appropriate.

Just make sure you use a knife to get the cheese out of the jar.

I didn't see that one coming, but the visual I got from it was eeeeuuuswwwwwww. Makes me sick. I can't go on. Awful. I really think I'll hurl. Really. Where's my dramamine? The room is spinning. Beads of sweat are forming. TGIF so I can just spend the weekend in bed trying to get over this. The nausea...

OMG, I got to "Land Shark" and still haven't stopped laughing. Of course, great Prevuisms like

EJ buys it. Apparently he's donated his brain to science before being done with it.

and

Translation – never mind. I'm guessing you don't need a translation for that one.

and the pictures like Cheez Whiz and Dan's "grope 'em if you've got 'em" kept the laughter going.

HUH?! moment…both Rafe and Sami go straight to Dr. Baker’s hotel room how?? Did Baker leave bread crumbs as a trail?

This was closely followed by Lucas asking KATE for advice on what to do with Chloe. HUH?! Ask the women he has got to a least suspect of maybe having something to do with trying to kill the girl? Why not talk to Chloe’s father??

And last, but not least:

"Maybe," says Lucas, "it's time we take her off life support."

Jeez, as Leslie also pointed out SHE ISN’T ON LIFE SUPPORT YET! She doesn’t even seem to have an IV line run. Just once in a blue moon you wish these writers would get a clue, run their scripts past, oh, say, a medical professional, or at least past someone who watches TV doctor shows.

TGIF indeed. Thanks for the great kickoff to the weekend Prevuze.

Word verification uprepse. Sounds like what Prevuze was just experiencing.

I got quite a head rush from laughing when I got to "Kate gave it to dad. She made it when she was in Kindergarten."

I also got a kick out of Daniel doesn't think that's the case, "I don't like snark. That's why I don't read Prevuze." and "Chloe isn't coming back, her mind is gone." "She didn't need to go into a coma for us to realize that," says Lucas. HAHAHAHA

"Who has this accursed letter," booms Stefano. "His lawyer," says Nicole. "Let's hope to God it's Mickey." Yup, Stefano's got it right. If the Mickster has it nobody will ever be able to find it that's for sure.

Prev, I'm willing to make a wager that it won't take 2019 for a SORAS'd Johnny to show up. Put my bet on 2011.

And please, God, just let the damn miracle cure work so they can GET ON WITH IT!!! I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE!!! I WANT TO SEE SOME PLOT MOVEMENT AND I WANT TO SEE IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not overreacting.

Thanks, Prevuze, for a great recap and pictures. TGIF and TGFP is right! Happy weekend all. :D

~Wow, ok. Yesterday, I was joking. I was thinking, there is no way Rafe and/or Sami could get to the DR in less than 12 hours. And wow, was I wrong. DooL remedial for me.

Brady and Arianna suck face. "I wanna be alone with you," says Brady
Uh oh. It's fate!

~You'd think with all the murders these people see, they'd be desensitized to these matters. Ciara is and she's, 5? 6?

She says Brady has taught her people can change and deserve a second chance
It's not like she knew Brady when he was on drugs. How can tell he 'changed?'

~And now we need a portmanteau for Johnny and Mia.

Rafe says he can't tell her but he assures her he did not kill Baker.Rafe says he can't tell her but he assures her he did not kill Baker.
Why would he have? What reason could he have? But then, he traveled all the way to the Dominican Republic to interrogate him

Nicole's eyes go wide, "NO! It will never be over."
I beg thee, let it be over. Please.

@Berg.
I was gone for almost two weeks, all that happened was Chloe and Dan's affair was revealed.

@Leslie
I haven’t seen any evidence of extreme life prolonging measures used to keep Chloe among the living or what passes as living on this soap.
Same thing here. It almost seems like they're just going to go in there and cap her.

So... I'm new to this blog's terms. What does "SORAS'd" mean? And do you mean Sami/EJ's Johnny and Mia?

10:27 AM  
Blogger Klaus said...

@Farmer's Daughter
SORAS stands for Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome. It's when they up the age of a character for whatever reason. Like EJ was born in the late 90's I believe, but he's somehow older then Will who was born before him on the show.

Hope that helps.

oops. I meant 'than.' And according to Wikipedia, Phillip was aged from 4 to 16. Which I didn't realize, coming to show right after. Haha.

As I remember, the ultimate SORASing cases (at the same time) were Brady and Belle. They were tiny tots, barely able to walk up the aisle at John and Marlena's wedding. Jolena went on a honeymoon. Even on Salem time they were only gone a few weeks. When they got back Brady looked about 33 and Belle was about 17.

Isn't it amazing, Leslie, that you noticed what Chloe's dad, the doctor, didn't -- that Chloe isn't on any life support. What plug can be pulled to stop a woman from breathing on her own?!!
