Get A Room!

Sami and Rafe are on the plane leaving for home and ostensibly, back in his hotel room, Dr. Baker's finger is still twitching. Rafe turns to Sami, "We go up in the sky like birdies."

"Yes," says Sami, "And have brain like birdies."


Sami wants to know what he was doing in the Dominican Republic. "And I want to know the same thing," says Rafe.

"If you don't know what you were doing here, who does," asks Sami. I came down because of you... And Nicole."

Stefano and Nicole argue about her relationship with Baker and Stefano blows up about the fact she didn't tell him about the letter.

Brady and Arianna heat up the screen.

Lucas says he's going into Chloe's room. Melanie stops him as Nathan takes off. Loserclueless wonders what's up.

Daniel finishes administering the liquid of life and tells Chloe he loves her. Kate turns the latch outside, "Time for the last goodbye, Chloe."

Rafe wonders how Sami knew Baker was in the Dominican Republic. Sami tells him about the call and says she's not even sure why Baker called her, "Maybe he knew something happened that made Grace more susceptible to a virus, like maybe irresponsible parents." Then she tells him about being at the pub and finding out where he was going.

Rafe asks, "And how did you know how to find Dr. Baker's room."

"Some things are best left unanswered," says Sami, "Or else we'll expose the fact that the writers don't think things through very well." She wonders if Rafe has evidence against Dr. Baker that concerns Grace.

Nicole says she didn't tell Stefano about the letter because she thought Baker was out of her life. Stefano erupts, "Forget about it... all your lies! Everything you have done is going to become public knowledge!"

Nicole snaps back, "You're wrong. There isn't enough room for that in the Library of Congress." She wonders if there is a way to stop the letter.

Lucas is suspicious. Melanie makes excuses and Lucas reluctantly buys her line. As she goes, she asks what he decided about pulling the plug on Chloe.

Back in Chloe's room, Daniel assures her they will be together soon, "You're not alone. I'll always (say it with him) be there for you."

Nathan tries to stop Kate. Kate tells him to go pound sand.

Brady and Arianna writhe and pant.

Prevuze

Victor walks in and takes in the show, "GET A ROOM!"

Rafe says he also got a call from Baker.

Stefano gets off the phone and tells Nicole Rafe went to the Dominican Republic to confront Baker. He tells her he "set up an accident" and planted evidence implicating Rafe in Baker's death. Now he's concerned because Rafe left the country before they found the body. Stefano wonders what will happen to him when Elvis finds out, "He will despise me."

"But," whines Nicole, "I'm losing my family."

"Take your pity and shove it," growls Stefano, "We have to stop that letter. Give me the lawyer's name."

"I don't know who he is."

Lucas tells Melanie, "You ask too many questions."

Out in the audience, Gertrude turns to Maude, "He can say that again."

Melanie says this relates to nursing school and dealing with patients. It's still none of your business," says Lucas, "You don't know when to quit." He walks off. Melanie grits her teeth.

Daniel takes Chloe's hand and begs her to squeeze his.

Nathan backpedals and says he's going in for an exam and then Kate can come in. Kate backs off.

Brady tells Arianna he didn't know anyone was home. She has dressed and says she forgives him, "I'm presentable now."

"Not for long," says Brady, "He moves in." She says she ahs to go. He invites her to his room instead.

Rafe says he thinks the bookies killed Baker and made him the fall guy. Sami thinks Rafe is withholding something.

Stefano calls some unnamed woman for help. He asks for Baker's lawyer's name, she gives it to him and says a lovely gift is on its way for her. He makes another call, "I have a job for you. Find a William Hines and bring him to me immediately." He hangs up, "Now we sit and hope Mr. Hines has not heard about Baker's death."

Nathan bustles into Chloe's room. Love-struck Daniel has left. Nathan paces, huffs and puffs.

Melanie hustles Daniel out of the hospital. He leaves. Melanie whines, "Oh, what am I doing?"

Brady and Arianna have jumped into bed. Brady pants, "You're so beautiful. I bet you've heard that a lot."

"It's been a long time," says Arianna.

"You can say that again." says Brady. Body parts fly across the screen.

Rafe says the truth is he doesn't know what Baker was up to and the bad guys framing him was probably a spur of the moment thing. He says he still wants to be Sami's hero who says the right thing and shows up in the Nick of time. Sami says she realizes he was trying to help her. She has William Hines card from Baker's wallet, "Maybe he knows what happened."

Hines shows up at the DiMera mansion. He complains about his full-body search. Stefano shuts him up and says he had to make sure he had no listening devices. He asks about the letter, "Where is it?"

Nicole pipes up, "Have you sent it?"

Melanie meets Daniel in the woods and says there is no change in Chloe's condition, "She's as clueless as ever." Daniel says she will recover when the drug kicks in.

Melanie calls Nathan. He looks at his phone as he discusses the dechloificaiton project with Lucas. Lucas tells Nathan, "I have made my decision. We are doing this. We're doing it now."


"OK," says Nathan, "Let's go see her."

Kate paces in Chloe's room, "It's going to be all over soon and Daniel won't be here to save you. Say goodbye, Chloe."

Chloe opens her eyes and looks up at her, "Goodbye, Chloe."

Gracie Allen pops her head in the door, "Copycat."


Suddenly, Chloe's machines buzz and whirr. Lucas and Nathan barge in.

Brady and Arianna smooch and grab. Arianna says, "I had this fantasy once and it's like everything that's happening right now only with a different guy.

Brady asks, "When?"

"The first time we met."

"No way," says Brady, "I yelled at you that night. I assumed you hated me."

"I did," says Arianna, "but you're so cute."

Who can resist being told someone hated him? That's all it takes for Brady. He dives in.

Rafe leaves a message for Hines and says he was recommended to him.

Hines tells Stefano his information is confidential. Nicole butts in and offers a bribe. Stefano stops her, "I'm sure Mr. Hines isn't interested in money. He's interested in seeing tomorrow morning. Mr. Hines, Do you know who you are dealing with?"

"Well," stammers Hines, "I've heard rumors."

"They are not rumors," says Stefano, "We do not take no for an answer, so tell me, where is the letter?"

Nathan works on Chloe and says there is a definite improvement, "Miracles happen." Kate rolls her eyes.

Arianna is on the phone and Brady is apparently locked in the bathroom crying. Troy tells her she has to come to pier six in ten minutes, "The Big Man is there to see you."

Rafe leaves a message for Arianna telling her Sami showed up and asking her not to tell anyone Nicole is in up to her eyeballs.

Sami comes back to her seat and asks about Hines. Rafe says he's probably a nobody. Sami buys it.

Hines takes the letter from his briefcase. Nicole grabs it and opens it, "It's not from Publisher's Clearinghouse, but it's the next best thing."

"Excellent," says Stefano. He answers the phone, "Very interesting." He hangs up and tells Hines he's been helpful, "But there is one more matter we have to deal with."

Daniel paces. Melanie rambles on. She gets a call from Nathan and hands the phone to Daniel. Nathan tells Daniel Chloe is showing improvement.

We pan down from Chloe's machines. Nathan comes in and says he reached Lexie. Kate wonders if Chloe will remember what people who visited her said. Nathan ignores it.

Brady comes back and Arianna tells him she has to go. Brady protests, "I'm looking forward to round two."

"It would be round three," says Arianna, "But who's counting?"

Stefano says the man who was watching Hines' belongings heard the message from Rafe.

"I don't know a Rafe Hernandez," says Hines.

"Then keep it that way," says Stefano. He tells Hines he needs a vacation – a permanent one, "Pick a state far away and go there. I'll have an associate write a check. It will be very generous and I will never see you again or hear from you. Agreed?"

"Yes... sir."

Stefano tells him it's been a pleasure and Nicole will see him out. He leaves. Hines stares, "There is a small matter I didn't explain to Mr. DiMera."

Sami and Rafe arrive at her place. He says he's happy she showed up when she did. "I guess it was my turn to rescue you," says Sami.

Nathan tells Daniel he got Lucas to back off. Daniel tells him to keep Kate away from Chloe. He hands the phone back to Melanie. She asks how Nathan is holding up. He says he's dong well and thanks her.

"We make a pretty good team, don't we," asks Melanie.

"Kind of like the 1962 Mets," says Nathan.

Daniel rambles, "Chloe, you come back to me."

Lucas stands alone with Chloe.

"I am with you," says Daniel, "I won't let you go. I love you... Chloe."

Back in her room, Chloe gasps, "Daniel..." Lucas pulls the plug.

Arianna and Brady say their goodbyes as Brady gets a call, "I have to take this. The Chinese markets are open."

"I'll have egg-foo-yung," says Arianna. She leaves for her big pow-wow.

Troy tells Mr. Big Arianna is on the way. Mr. Big thinks it over, "I don't know..." He turns to Mr. Bigger, "What do you think?"

"Interesting," says Mr. Bigger. We pan away from Mr. Bigger to see... Victor!

Sami tells Rafe to stay safe. He finally figures out she's not going to invite him in and leaves.

Nicole asks what Hines didn't tell Mr. DiMera. "The letter wasn't the only letter Dr. Baker instructed me to mail," says Hines, "There were two others, so I mailed them. One was for a Mia McCormick and the other for a Samantha Brady."

Sami wants to know what he was doing in the Dominican Republic. "And I want to know the same thing," says Rafe.

"If you don't know what you were doing here, who does," asks Sami.

…and I want to know just how much more ridiculous can this get. Get a clue Sami! Rafe is snooping into your life – again. Geez!

Rafe asks, "And how did you know how to find Dr. Baker's room."

"Some things are best left unanswered," says Sami, "Or else we'll expose the fact that the writers don't think things through very well."

I think Applecheeks was spot on – breadcrumbs led the dynamic duo to Dr. Baker. While not up to Hansel and Gretel standards, DOOL is pretty much a gruesome fairy tale. It’s certainly not based on any form of reality.

As she goes, she asks what he decided about pulling the plug on Chloe.

Since the show is green and Chloe is in a coma, she really doesn’t need the reading lamp by her bed so it’s OK to pull the plug.

Victor walks in and takes in the show, "GET A ROOM!"

With all the rooms at the Kiriakis crib, alfresco romping is totally unnecessary and the lawn chairs aren’t strong enough for the really energetic stuff.

"But," whines Nicole, "I'm losing my family."

"Take your pity and shove it," growls Stefano, "We have to stop that letter. Give me the lawyer's name."

I wonder if Greyhound has a big enough bus for Stefano to shove Nicole under.

Melanie grits her teeth.

…all 156 of them.

Sami and Rafe arrive at her place.

Since they were only gone for about 10 minutes, I wonder if Sami missed Will’s cross country meet.

"There were two others, so I mailed them. One was for a Mia McCormick and the other for a Samantha Brady."

Letters, I get letters, I get stacks and stacks of letters – good heavens. Dr. Baker’s fingers were still twitching when Rafe stole the attorney’s business card. Exactly when and how was Hines notified of Dr. Baker’s death? First, the body has to be found, and then it has to be identified. That takes time. If Stefano had Dr. Baker murdered, wouldn’t it be more efficient to neutralize the attorney in the same manner? As for Nicole, she has become a major liability to Stefano and, I would think a prime candidate for a swim with the fishes too. When she should be scared – very scared, Nicole continues to be mouthy with her father-in-law.

Word verification - hourde - that's the total time it took Rafe and Sami to get to and from the Dominican Republic.

Great Monday morning update Prevuze, and I loved Kate’s lips through the years!

How long have Brady and Arianne actually known each other?

Do the writers really believe we're so stupid not to realize this is Ethan & Theresa and that we lost Tanna, Jarlena and Stayla for them?

The ratings are diving and this is one reason why.

Back in her room, Chloe gasps, "Daniel..." Lucas pulls the plug. HAHAHAHAHA That particular Prevuism really tickled me.

I hope Arianna had enough credit on her card for Rafe to take the Salem Transporter down to the Caribbean and back as I would imagine it's pretty pricey.

Leslie, you bring up too many points of illogic for the writers to possibly handle. Especially why everyone in Salem knows Baker's dead when he's still twitching away in the chair.

Loved Kate's lips (altho this must be an old poster. None of them are quite up to the current bee-sting size) and Who can resist being told someone hated him? That's all it takes for Brady. He dives in.

Excellent recap - on a Monday!!!! The Monday satellite curse is fixed. Thank you Norris. And thanks, Prevuze! :D

Leslie & Bulldog have hit just about all the highlights (or lowlights if you will) of the idiocy in this episode.

I did enjoy the "roll 'em out" picture. And how many folks thought Kate would actually catch Dr. Dan in Chloe's room?

~~~~~~~~~crickets~~~~~~~~~~

That's what I thought.

One HUH?! moment that hasn't been pointed out yet - Hines had Baker's letter to give to Stefano. Did he just carry it around with him at all times??

Thanks for the Monday boost, Prevuze.

Thank God Doctor Baker used snail mail! Now no one has to sneak into anyone's apartment to check computers. They just simply march up to the mailbox and retrieve it, see the letter unopened on a table top and steal it or they could do it the Dimera way:

Break into the post office or waylay the mailman.

Am I dreaming or did some DOOL actors win daytime Emmys?

Like Revolutionary Road ruined the Titanic for me (Kate and Leo do over) and Runaway Bride ruined Pretty Woman (Julia and Richard do over)... Arianna and Brady threaten to ruin my memories of Passions on my lunch breaks from college. The story doesn't have the same chemistry, tension, or substance as Ethan and Theresa did. Isn't that sad?? Passions had better story line and character development. Seriously. The show with a talking doll and monkey. I've always been on the look for a reason to quit this show for good and this is as close as I've ever come.

That's what I thought.


Sorry to ruin your cricket chorus, Applecheeks, but I did think Kate would catch Dr. Grope-n-grab. I figured it would be yet another way to keep the plot from moving forward for about a month.

I thought Kate was going to come in just as Dr. Grope-em-if-they-got-em started to inject Chloe. He would be immediately arrested and thrown back in jail. Since Chloe didn't get a full dose of the antidote, she would take a turn for the worse.

Everyone would assume the good creap-o-phile...er good doctor had come to poison her and finish the job off. Then the writers could get another 3 or 4 weeks of comatose Chloe and Looserclueless debating whether or not to pull the plug with anyone who would talk to him.

What do you know - the writers surprised me for once. Will wonders ever cease!?!?

Rafe asks, "And how did you know how to find Dr. Baker's room."
Probably the same way Rafe did. I'd wager Sami is more clever than Rafe. Which isn't saying much.

Rafe says he also got a call from Baker.
Wow, half-truths. I wonder what's the fascination with Rafe and Sami now that this is just like every other relationship she was in.

Sami comes back to her seat and asks about Hines. Rafe says he's probably a nobody
Jeez. Rafe is more interested in Sami's life than she is.

Back in her room, Chloe gasps, "Daniel..." Lucas pulls the plug.
Lol!

"I have a job for you. Find a William Hines and bring him to me immediately."
I'd think more information is needed than that. That name sounds pretty common.

Victor walks in and takes in the show, "GET A ROOM!"
Gross. I thought they were already in a room.

"There were two others, so I mailed them. One was for a Mia McCormick and the other for a Samantha Brady."
DUN DUN DUUUN!

~As amusing as it would be for Stefano to attempt to murder Nicole. EJ is still in 'wuv' and would presumably go to the ends of the earth to figure out who did it.

@DD
I don't know. Passions annoyed me with the endless love cycles. Thank goodness for Jared, Fancy and Antonio who broke up the nonsense. In Jared's case, for a little while.

FFAAATTTEEE!!! (I know it's getting old, but I'm still amused.)

Euh Ej seems so bored (mostly James Scott by the way) that if Nicole is murdered he will not give a s*** about it !! A lamest escuse by the good daddy Stephano and Elvis is OK.
Is the show will be cancelled ? Yes, no ?? That is the question..
