Social Suicide

First Item Of Business – a brief recap of yesterday's lost episode:

Rafe overhears Sami talking on the phone to Nicole and telling her she's been (say it with her) there for her. Rafe doesn't get it (What's new?), but Sami tells him they are friends because of losing Grace. Sami orders Rafe out of her life, remembers Grace's death and goes to the darkside.

Baker continues to call Nicole and threaten her. When that doesn't work, he calls Sami. Double your pleasure, double your fun, get yourself two wackos instead of just one.

Bo and Hope have the same argument about the ransom they've been having for about two weeks.

Will shows up at the Cheatin' Heart and dances with Mia as Chad stews. Kinzie shows up drunk and taunts Chad. Will leaves after one dance. Wham bam thank-ya ma'am.

Prevuze

Chad moves in and reminds Mia of the good times they had. He says he still loves her. Mia accepts a ride with Kinzie, no doubt accepting the responsibility of becoming the evening's designated crash test dummy.

Theo keeps repeating "Angel... angel." Roman takes it as a secret SPD code word, but finally figures it's a tattoo. Theo identifies the tattoo from a book.

Clyde gets creepier. Bonnie and Mr. Sucker want to bail. The perps find out Theo saw the tattoo because of Clyde's SPD connections. They panic but Clyde comes up with a plan. Clyde clears out their hotel room and comes back to kill Ciara.

Prevuze

Hope follows the tattoo lead and finds out Mr. Sucker is a registered sex offender (Well, that angel was kind of young and had no clothes on. You've really got to be careful these days). The trio hit the hotel room and find the clipping about Hope and a map.

Rafe runs to Arianna and tells her what Sami said (Mommy wasn't available, so he ran to sis.) After seeing the Caribbean brochures Rafe thinks Baker took off to the Caribbean (If the guy were any sharper he'd be a butter knife). Arianna suggests he let Sami go. Rafe goes to see Nicole.

EJ tells Nicole about the results of the McDNA tests and she gets all lovey-dovey. EJ suggests a honeymoon to guess where, the Caribbean. Nicole vetoes, and they decide on Paris.

EJ finds Sami brooding in the park. He tells Sami Rafe was a pathetic choice for her (maybe they deserved each other). They argue and oh-so-humble Sami says she knows EJ is glad she's free. EJ denies and tells her about the honeymoon plans.

Second Item Of Business – Norris is due to come today to to work on this infernal satellite system. I'm pretty sure he'll be here, because I'm the one who has promised to post his bail.

Third Item Of Business – Yes, I got a feed today. It won't win any Emmys for cinematography, but here's what I was able to piece together:

Rafe barges into the DiMera mansion wanting some info about Nicole's relationship with Sami and also wondering where Grace fits in.

Dr. Baker calls Sami to talk about Grace.

Chad chases Mia down, begging her not to get into the car with Kinzie. He wants her to go with him instead. Mia screams, "OMG you think if I go with you... No, not again, not after what happened the first time." She doesn't want to talk about it ever again. Translation: They'll talk about it until their lips fall off. Chad wonders what's up.

Bo, Hope and Roman stand in the kidnapper's hotel room and look at the map with the places circled on it. Roman studies the map, "I figure they went to one of these places they've circled." Roman must have fallen out of the tree of stupidity and hit every branch on the way down. Hope broods and lectures Bo about the way he's handling things.

Clyde comes back to the cabin flicking his Bic. He pulls his gun and prepares to kill Ciara. Mr. Sucker and Bonnie beg but...

BANG!!!

Rafe wants to know about Nicole's connection with Grace.

Sami says she thought Baker called to offer condolences. Dr. B is confused, "Condolences? Are you telling me that Grace..."

Sami completes his sentence, "Went to soap opera heaven. If you didn't know she died why are you calling?"

Three words: Bo, Hope, mute.

Clyde's bullet hits Mr. Sucker and Bonnie goes off the deep end. Clyde growls, "New plan baby, and Mr. Sucker's death kicks it off."

Bo barks orders into his phone and then the Three Musketeers head for the woods.

Bonnie freaks. Clyde tells her there was no other way out. He cocks his gun again and points it at Bonnie.

Lucas meets Will at the pub. Will tells him Caroline is shook over Ciara's kidnapping and Will thinks he might stay at the pub tonight. Lucas asks about Mia, "She sure has a lot of baggage."

"Compared to Mom," says Will, "It's only carry-on. I like Mia and I'm sure I won't get hurt."

Mia reminds Chad he dumped her as Kinzie pulls up and honks. Chad insists Mia shouldn't get in the car, "Because I love you." He runs for his keys as Kinzie calls. Mia heads for Kinzie's car. Chad comes back and watches the carnage.

She sort of smiled and said goodbye
The tears were beginning to show
As she drove away on that rainy night
I begged her to go slow
But whether she heard, I'll never know...

LOOK-OUT-LOOK-OUT-LOOK-OUT-LOOK-OUT!

SCREEEECHHHHH-CRASH!!!

I felt so helpless, what could I do?
Remembering all the things we'd been through
In school they all stop and stare
I can't hide the tears, but I don't care
I'll never forget her... the leader of the pack

Nicole defends her relationship with Sami. Rafe changes his tune and says he came there to thank her for being a friend to Sami. Nicole isn't kind, "Someone needs to be her friend after what you did to her."

Baker cooks up a story about wanting his patients to get hold of him. He fakes a knock at the door and says he has to go. He hangs up, "The plot has thickened. Why wouldn't you tell me that little tidbit, Mrs. DiMera? What would Sami do if she knew?"

Bonnie figures this was Clyde's plan all along. She panics and offers to help him. Clyde says he doesn't need a partner and will take out Hope on his own, "Too bad you won't be there to see it."

Bo, Hope and Roman stumble through the woods. Roman goes off to see if he can find a tree. Hope finds footprints. She and Bo take off in that direction.

Bonnie gets desperate, "I love you." Clyde wonders what they will do with the kid if they run off together. He thinks Bonnie's plan is too risky.

Lucas thinks Mia is hiding things from Will. Will thinks Lucas is comparing Mia to Chloe. He gets a call and learns about the crash, "Mia's in the hospital. I gotta go."

Nicole lectures Rafe, "Sami trusted you, and what did you do to her? You abandoned her."

Prevuze

Rafe thinks that's none of Nicole's business. Nicole tells him he should get out of town. Baker calls her and Nicole stares at her phone. "You gonna answer that," asks Rafe.

Mia stands at the nurses' station and tells the police about the crash. A cop tells her, "Be thankful you weren't in that car. The passenger side was completely crushed." The cop walks off and Chad and Mia have a staredown.

Nicole gets another call from Baker. Rafe tells her she should probably answer it. Nicole answers. She tells Baker she can't talk. He asks about Grace and tells her he learned about her death from Sami.

Mia tells Chad she knows he saved her life. Will walks in as they hug.

Clyde reconsiders and hands Bonnie the gun to kill Ciara. Bonnie begs, "Let's just go. It'll be just me and you. I love you. Come on." Clyde moves in and kisses her.

BANG!

Down goes Bonnie!

You've read the story of Jesse James
Of how he lived and died.
It doesn't compare
to this tragic pair
It's the end of Bonnie and Clyde.

                                         – Bonnie Parker, 1934

Bo and Hope hear the shot and go into action.

Lucas looks into the doorway of the kid's room, "No more toys. We won't be able to fit them into your suitcase."

Sami begs, "Let me have just one more toy, please."

So apparently they're shipping the grandkids off to Marlena. God forbid Sami should take care of them for once. Lucas packs the Laughing Penguin as Sami tells him about Baker's call, "I had to tell him Grace... died. It's been two and a half months and she's not back from the dead yet."

Sami tells him she and Nicole have become friends and Lucas goes off the deep end, "Nicole is your friend?"

Sami mumbles, "Yeah."

Lucas asks, "Sami, what are you thinking."

"What are you talking about," asks Sami, "Thinking is for adults."

Baker asks Nicole about Grace, "If you would have told me she died, I could have at least sent flowers TO MIA. By the way, Nicole, my price just went way up." Nicole gets rid of him and tells Rafe the call was about Sydney's pictures. Rafe doesn't buy it.

Bo and Hope rush into the cabin and find the bodies of Bonnie and Mr. Sucker, a wounded Clyde and Ciara. Bo asks Clyde what happened.

Lucas scoffs at Sami's friendship with Nicole. Sami says Nicole is Chloe's friend, too. Lucas hears the word 'Chloe' and goes off the deep end. He says he still loves her, "But sometimes love isn't enough." He says he just had the same conversation with Will, "Mia is a sweetheart, but with a past. I'm trying to protect him. It could end up in heartbreak." Sami zones out and Lucas asks if that's what's happening with her and Rafe.

Rafe badgers and Nicole says it was Sami on the phone. He brings up Johnny. Nicole says she won't intrude on Sami's relationship with her son. Rafe lifts Nicole's phone as she rambles on.

Will thanks Chad for stopping Mia from getting in the car with Kinzie. Chad thinks he should have stopped Kinzie too. Will and Chad, new best buddies, shake. Feel the love.

Clyde says there was no time to call for backup. He concocts a big story about saving Ciara. Bo and Hope are sooooo grateful. We flash back to Clyde preparing the room after the murders. He wraps Bonnie's cold and dead fingers around the gun and shoots himself in the shoulder. We pop back to ahem reality and Hope wonders how they can ever repay Clyde.

Suddenly, Mr. Sucker twitches. I mean, it wouldn't be truly cheesy if Mr. Sucker didn't come back to life at least once, would it?

Sensitive Lucas says he's sorry things didn't work out with Rafe, "We're in the same boat, but I'm still surprised about your friendship with Nicole. It sounds like Rafe cares about you."

"Not enough," drones Sami, "He had secrets and wouldn't share them with me."

"But does he really care like me," asks Lucas, "Did he care enough to let you rot in the death chamber?"

Rafe leaves. Nicole closes the door and notices her phone is gone.

Kinzie moans, "My parents are going to kill me. Chad tells her she's lucky." Kinzie wails, "I just committed social suicide!"

Chad tells her she shouldn't worry about that when she could have died, "You didn't even think what could have happened to Mia."

Oh, Chad said the magic word. Give the man a prize. Instead, Kinzie give him a tongue lashing, "It's always about Mia isn't it? You're dead to her. Move on."

Chad tells her he and Mia aren't over, "Something happened out there between us."

Brooding Mia tells Will she's OK. She says she knew Kinzie was drunk and feels bad she was going to get in the car. Will asks if she wants to talk about it and Mia tells him it's easier to write it in her journal.

Bo checks Mr. Sucker who flails. Bo goes flying and it's Clyde to the rescue. Mr. Sucker gurgles, "I didn't do it alone!" Clyde gets him in a choke-hold. Mr. Sucker's tongue pops out of his mouth and he makes a face like he just had a bowl of day-old chowdah at the pub, then goes limp. Bo checks him out and confirms he's gone. Clyde huffs and puffs. Hope hugs Ciara.

Sami leans out the door and tells the kids to be good for grandma, "And don't come back until you get through college – in a couple of months." She closes the door, sits on the couch and wonders about the situation with Baker, "Why did you really call me."

Nicole figures Rafe may have taken the phone.

Rafe sits in the pub and analyzes the data in Nicole's phone. He finds the call came from the Dominican Republic.

Bo supervises the cleanup in the shack of death, "The last thing this SOB said was he wasn't working alone. Roman, who has shown up after finding that tree in the woods, figures Mr. Sucker meant he was working with Bonnie. Roman and Bo tell Clyde to hang in there. Bo tells him he earned a medal tonight, "You're what we call a hero."

"Thanks," says Clyde, "You're what we call a dimwit."

Outside, Hope thanks Clyde. She turns to Ciara, "He rescued you."

"No he didn't," says the argumentative little brat.

I bet those two could sell an awful lot of Doublemint.

Arianna suggests he let Sami go. Rafe goes to see Nicole.

If Rafe hooks up with Nicole, what do you get – boring porn? Just asking.

I'm pretty sure he'll be here, because I'm the one who has promised to post his bail.

Prevuze – I hope you won’t need Dog the Bounty Hunter to get your money back.

Chad wonders what's up.

I think that Chad has great hopes for that one.

Roman studies the map, "I figure they went to one of these places they've circled." Roman must have fallen out of the tree of stupidity and hit every branch on the way down.

Roman is the SPD’s deputy commissioner. Enough said.

Lucas asks about Mia, "She sure has a lot of baggage."

"Compared to Mom," says Will, "It's only carry-on.”

I sure hope Sami doesn’t fly a lot. The surcharge for her luggage would be astronomical.

I can't hide the tears, but I don't care
I'll never forget her... the leader of the pack

Prevuze, did you cue up the Shangri-Las or Twisted Sister? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Lucas asks, "Sami, what are you thinking."

"What are you talking about," asks Sami, "Thinking is for adults."

…and Lucas, of all people, is acting like the adult in this conversation.

"He rescued you."

"No he didn't," says the argumentative little brat.

What do you know – a sign that there is actually intelligent life in Salem. Thank heavens – that’s finally over. Now we can move on to Hope not being able to live with Bo - again. Geez!

Two – two recaps in one – thanks for doubling our pleasure and doubling our fun Prevuze!

All the pictures were great, as usual. Welcome, Snandmbe, a new contributor and a good one!

The pic that got me to snort liquid through my nose was Mia getting her virginity back.

Some of my favorite Prevuisms today:
Translation: They'll talk about it until their lips fall off.

After seeing the Caribbean brochures Rafe thinks Baker took off to the Caribbean (If the guy were any sharper he'd be a butter knife).

Three words: Bo, Hope, mute.

Or, my preference,zap.

Why in the world did they make Mr. Sucker a sex offender? To make it OK for Clyde to kill him? Mr. Sucker never gave off that vibe at all.

And, I'm sorry, but no blind-folded, kidnapped 5 year old would be as self-possessed as Ciara has been through this. No crying, no sign of being afraid not even when there was yelling and fighting going on? Did she even flinch when there were gun shots? An earbud and iPod isn't going to drown that out.

Last but not least, Sami is packing three-year-olds off to Europe alone? If Marlena is so hot to see her grandkids, why doesn't she come to Salem? And, is EJ down with this plan?

I'm relieved to get this Prevuze. It makes up for the hell of a Prevuze-less Monday!!

My first question exactly. I thought what did I miss? Who's taking these little kids to Switzerland??? And no way would EJ let Johnny go.

And why doesn't Nicole have Rafe tossed out by the seat of his pants instead of letting him come in and interrogate her about stuff that's none of his business? Totally unbelievable.

I LOL over Roman falling out of the stupidity tree as well as "Thanks," says Clyde, "You're what we call a dimwit." so much so I aroused suspicion from a coworker. THEN I got to "But does he really care like me," asks Lucas, "Did he care enough to let you rot in the death chamber?" and the image of Prevuze having to don raingear to avoid the mass of garbage inevitably hurled by the agitated LUMI's caused me to really lose it.

Oh well. It was worth nearly getting caught just so Prevuze could brighten a back-to-work day. Thanks!

Clyde clears out their hotel room and comes back to kill Ciara.
Yeah, killing a cop's kid. That's the ticket.

~Ok, with the advent of the internet, who uses travel brochures anymore? A Google search contains infinitely more information than any brochure.

~Unless Clyde is a child molester, I don't see how this revelation makes any difference, because half the casts are rapists of some caliber.

~I've rethought my issue with Chad, Mia, and Will. I would suggest Chad feels something for little Ms. Gloom, because I'm positive there are 'easier' (gentlemanly words fail me.) girls around.

Clyde's bullet hits Mr. Sucker and Bonnie goes off the deep end.
So Clyde is a nonthinking 'let's kill 'em all' bad guy?

He cocks his gun again and points it at Bonnie.
Oh, he is!

Rafe thinks that's none of Nicole's business.
I like how he probes Mia, Brady, Nicole, EJ and Sami, but when it's his turn it's, 'mind your beeswax.'
Edit: Then he steals someone's cellphone, but goes off the wall when Sami (a mother) is inquisitive about a woman who died in his care or whatever.

Sami tells him she and Nicole have become friends and Lucas goes off the deep end, "Nicole is your friend?"
He wasn't too concerned when Chloe and Nicole became friends. So I wager; he never actually cared for Chloe or this is just a convenient plot hole. My money is on the latter.
Edit: Ok, I was somewhat wrong. They mentioned that tidbit, but still glossed over it, it seems.

Rafe doesn't buy it.
Wow! Is he still in the mansion?? lol

He wraps Bonnie's cold and dead fingers around the gun and shoots himself in the shoulder.
Ok, I watch too much Law&Order and TruTV. But won't the powder burns, the angle the bullet hole is in and probably a bevy of other things prove something else happened?

"But does he really care like me," asks Lucas, "Did he care enough to let you rot in the death chamber?"
lol, I was going to point that out myself. Nice.

Re: Ciara. I agree, I'd be more worried that she handled the situation with no stress. She doesn't even seem to care.

Of course, Klaus, but it's the SPD we're talking about. They literally needed a MAP with locations circled on it to find some shack out in the woods apparently within walking distance of where Ciara was originally snatched.

I imagine their CIS contingent to be comprised of a couple of police academy wash-outs armed with Mr. Science chemistry kits.

The only thing they can apparently do at warp speed is a McDNA test.

And, by CIS in the previous tweet, I meant CSI. Sheesh!
