Even The Devil Doesn't Want You

Justin and Daniel are together at the hospital as Justin tries to convince Daniel that the new doctor applying for a job there should be rejected. Carly interrupts them. Daniel and Carly recognize each other and the old pals share a big hug. Daniel asks, "What are you doing in Salem?"

"Interviewing for a job."

Smarter than the average bear, Daniel puts two and two together. He turns to Justin, "Is she..."

Justin jumps in, "She's the doctor I was telling you about... yes."

Rafe and Arianna are in the pub. He tells her there is no news about Sydney. "How is Sami doing," asks Arianna.

"She's brooding, not eating, depressed, not saying much."

"In other words," says Arianna, "she's acting normal."

"Except for the part about not saying much," says Rafe.


"Well," says Arianna, "One good thing came out of this — Nicole is in jail."

Chloe comes to see Nicole. The guard escorts her to Nicole's cell and Chloe says what we've all been thinking, "Nice hair." Apparently Nicole has asked Chloe to come and see her, "You said this was urgent."

"Yes," says Nicole, "It's a matter of life and death."

Stefano is on the phone, "Be patient. Wait for further instructions." Bo comes in, "So... who were you talking to?"

"Warren Buffet," cracks Stefano, "He is coming to town and he wants to borrow my yacht." Stefano thinks Bo is there to accuse him of dastardly deeds. He tells Bo he will be tortured until Sydney comes back, "You know the pain I'm going through, so you shouldn't be harassing me. Get the hell out before I throw you out."

EJ says he knows Sami can get under Stefano's skin. They are both certain EJ's cockamamie scheme will work. Sami is hot to go right now. EJ thinks they should wait and take things slowly.

Arianna wonders what Nicole must be going through. Gabi joins them and reports that their mom is concerned. Rafe decides to check on Sami. So much for Mom. Gabi tells Arianna that she's concerned too and wonders if Sami is worth all this trouble even if Rafe loves her.

Sami is just beside herself with giddiness, "I know exactly how we can do this."

Stefano tells Bo he doesn't know where Sydney is and if he did he would talk to his son about it first. Bo is skeptical. He tells Stefano he is the one and only suspect in the case so he'd better start talking. Stefano starts talking but it's not exactly what Bo wants to hear, "All I know is Nicole was hit on her deluded little head and the child was taken." He thinks Nicole is disturbed and says his men are on the case, "Without my help you will never find that child." Without help, the SPD can't find it's collective butt with both hands.

Mystery Woman babbles and tells Sydney they will hang together a lot.

Carly wants to know what Justin was telling Daniel about her. Justin says that's moot now that he knows she and Danny boy are old buddies. Daniel jumps in, "Carly, it would be my privilege to grope... uh... work with you again." Justin leaves and Carly grills Daniel about what Justin was saying. She figures he was trying to sabotage her. They talk about each other's past. They are soooo sorry about each others loss, Rebecca and Lawrence, and Carly says she hopes Daniel has found love again.

"I find love every time I examine a female patient," says Daniel, "And I also have a second chance at love at home."

Nicole says she is going insane because no one will give her any news on Sydney. She also knows Chloe is mad because she kept the truth from her. She asks if Chloe knows about any leads. Chloe don' know nuttin. Nicole says she knows she deserves to be in jail, but it's Sydney she's worried about, "Because of me Sydney may be in horrible danger."

Bo wonders why they won't find Sydney without Stefano's help. Stefano says that's because his resources reach well beyond Bo's. Bo wonders about the little war between Stefano and EJ. Stefano doesn't want to talk about that. He says he's just worried about Sydney and doesn't give a hang about Elvis or Samantha.

Sami wants to go into action now. EJ wants to move more slowly. That calls for bickering like second graders. Sami rambles on, "EJ, I know I'm right. You've got to let me help. I know I can get him to blurt something out."

Rafe opens the door , "She's right. It's the only way to go."

Carly says, "I'd like to meet Chloe." Daniel gets a page and takes off. Justin's turn. He comes up and Carly asks if he's embarrassed for trying to kill her career, "I want an apology."

Chloe says, "Even though I've been hard on you there is a part of me that feels sorry for you."

"I don't want your pity," sneers Nicole.

"That's not it," says Chloe, "I know you love EJ." Nicole tells her it's more than that, "This all started because I wanted to get one-up on Sami."

"But you ended up falling in love with EJ..."

"Yes," says Nicole, "And then it was about wanting to be part of a family. But EJ never stopped loving Sami. It's more than the fact they share children. His daughter will draw them closer."

The Ejami section cheers as the Lumi and Safe sections throw Jujubes at them.

Rafe thinks Sami should wear a wire. "It won't work," says EJ, "Father will be to skeptical. He thinks his barber wears a wire."

"You're afraid if it works you'll be betraying your father," says Rafe.

Justin says he did what he thought was right. He thinks she has exacerbated Bo and Hope's problems. Carly thinks Justin wants to move in on Hope. Justin says he wants Carly out of town.

Stefano orders Bo to leave. Bo gives him the standard warning, "Don't leave town."

After Bo leaves, Stefano goes into a rage, "Fools — every last one of them." He picks up a picture of Sydney, "Don't they realize how much I love you? I have nothing but your best interests in my heart."

Mystery Woman sings a lullaby. We watch as she sits in her rocking chair and wiggles her fingers. Oh, the action!

Arianna says she respects the fact Rafe loves Sami. Gabi is worried about the fact that Sydney is EJ's daughter, "The whole situation is creepy."

"It's complex," says Arianna.

"That's just a nice word for it," says Gabi, " What if they find the baby and EJ and Sami fall in love again and she dumps Rafe. What then?"

Beatrice Farkle, a diehard Ejami fan from Ipswich, Massachusetts, stands and shouts, "Then we'll all be happy!" The Jujube shower nearly kills her.

EJ says he's concerned about Sami's well being, not about betraying Stefano. Rafe says they will be with her every step of the way. Sami makes a pitch to do this right now and bring Stefano down as soon as possible. EJ stares.

Carly rambles on about Justin going behind her back. Daniel interrupts and asks to talk to Justin. He takes him aside and says he thinks it's unfortunate Justin would use his influence to sabotage Carly. Justin says Daniel doesn't know the whole story.

Arianna says she is worried about Rafe, too, but also knows he's head over heels in love with Sami. They agree to back off, and hope he doesn't get burned.

Meanwhile, back at Sami's place, we've got her all wired up. EJ asks Rafe, "How did you do that so quickly. I can't believe there was a professional grade wire just sitting around Sami's apartment."

"Of course not," says Rafe, "She's wearing one of those underwire bras that have become part of the communications infrastructure of the country. I just added a couple of batteries and voilà — she's all wired up." Rafe demonstrates by picking up a Moscow radio station on her bra.


Larry, Moe and Curly Sue all head for the DiMera mansion.

Nicole says finding Sydney is all that matters to her now, "I miss you."

"I miss you, too," says Chloe.

Feeling the love, Nicole presses on, "I have a favor to ask."

Carly and Daniel are happy to see each other again. Carly thinks Daniel is gallant to defend her against Justin's sinister attempts to ruin her career. Daniel says, "This reminds me of the time you didn't want to talk about why you didn't come to all those medical conferences years ago."

"My husband and I had a falling out," says Carly.

"How'd that work out," asks Daniel.

"I ripped his guts out with a butcher knife and he died a horrible and painful death."

"It's always nice when a married couple can iron out their differences," says Daniel.


Carly asks Daniel to keep an open mind. Daniel says he will do what he can to make sure she gets the job. She congratulates him on his relationship with Chloe. Daniel leaves. Chloe smiles.

Bo meets Justin at the Java Café. Justin wants to talk about Carly. Bo wants to punch him in the face. Justin warns, "Carly is in town to destroy your marriage."

"The Marines have landed," says Bo.

Rafe and Sami stand outside the DiMera mansion. Rafe gives her a pep talk, "I'll be right here listening." Meanwhile, EJ positions himself outside the French doors. Back at the front, EJ tells Sami they're good to go. She heads into the house.

Around the perimeter of the property, the guards and their viscous dogs take their afternoon siesta. What's more, the elaborate DiMera security system shorts out.

Sami bursts into the rumpus room. Stefano looks up from his desk, "You! Just what I need. If you're looking for Elvis, he isn't here."

"I'm not here for EJ," snorts Sami, "I want my daughter back."

Outside, Rafe coaches, "Take it slow, Sami."

Stefano gives her a genealogy lesson, "Your daughter is my granddaughter."

"Where is she?"

"My heart is breaking," whines Stefano, "and I have to put up with this. Get out of my sight." Sami refuses to go. EJ and Rafe listen.

Nicole asks Chloe to have Brady come to the jail to see her.

EJ listens as Stefano tells Sami she has sunk to a new low. He suggests Sami go see Nicole if she wants information about Sydney's whereabouts. Sami insists Nicole is a dead end. She runs through a litany of Stefano's past sins and says she wants her daughter back now.

Stefano explodes, "NEVER!"

Carly walks at the pier. Daniel calls, "I just wanted to tell you I did a little probing. After I finished my appointment with her, I also found out your job application is looking good, I think it's going to work out."

Justin tells Bo Carly is applying for a job at the hospital. Bo says he knows that and hopes she gets it. He warns Justin to get off the Bo and Hope train and says he knows Justin's marriage is on the rocks and he should deal with that. He also thinks Justin is fanning the flames of is problem with Hope. Justin agrees to back off and leaves.

Carly wanders. She flashes back to her conversation with Justin when he told her he saw a connection between her and Bo. Bo finds her. She tells him whatever Justin is saying to him is not true.

Gabi suggests Arianna should call Brady after work. Arianna tells her to back off. "It's obvious you're nuts about the guy," says Gabi, "In fact, it's obvious you're nuts with or without him." Gabi leaves.

Arianna zones out, "Brady..." She takes out her phone.

Chloe says she'll see what she can do. Nicole thanks her for coming to visit. Chloe tells her to take care and leaves.

Nicole wanders in her cell and hears a female voice assuring Sydney everything will be all right. "OMG," she gasps, "The person who took Sydney is a woman."

Mystery Woman tells Sydney how happy she is going to be.

Stefano booms, "Even if I did have Sydney what makes you think I would turn her over to you?"

"I am her mother."

Stefano's on to Sami's maternal skills, "Oh, yeah, like you have time to take care of her. Don't you have about a dozen kids now?"

"I love my children," says Sami, "Which is more than I can say for you."

"Just the sound of your voice drives me crazy," says Stefano, "It's like the sound of fingernails scratching on a blackboard. On top of everything else I have to look into this little face of yours."

"I'd tell you to go to hell," growls Sami, "but even the devil doesn't want you."

"You know something, Samantha, you are going to live in hell, because you are never going to see your Sydney. I'll make sure of that."

EJ stares.

Rafe stares.

Sami stares.

I mean okay - where do I begin?

Rafe opens the door , "She's right. It's the only way to go." Now Rafe is taking credit for others peoples ideas? This hero thing has gotten very creepy.

How did he find wire to make a "wire"? He is now Mcguyver?

I love Stefano. He probably doesn't have anything to do with the kidnapping, probably knows somehow EJ is involved, but barks at Sami she will never see her kid. I am reallly hoping he asks her if she has a dozen kids already - it wasn't in italics so it means it happens right? Good. I agree.

Jujubes Fight!!!! Speaking of nails on a chalkboard, I feel that way everytime Rafe Hernandez is on screen. Make it stop - please make it stop (goes and cowers in corner).

A little fun for the holidays and let's see if the group will chime in.....

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me. Sami still looking for Sydney.

Now you!

Chloe says what we've all been thinking, "Nice hair."

Prevuze, the best style blog on the Internet. LMAO

Bo comes in, "So... who were you talking to?" "Warren Buffet," cracks Stefano.

Finally! Someone on the show gives an appropriate response to an idiot asking about a conversation that's none of their business.

This recap was full to the brim with great prevuisms. Loved the riff about using Sami's underwire bra and Without help, the SPD can't find it's collective butt with both hands.

The Ejami section cheers as the Lumi and Safe sections throw Jujubes at them.

It just occurred to me....where have the EJicole's been through all of this? Keeping their head down and just biding their time?

Beatrice Farkle, a diehard Ejami fan from Ipswich, Massachusetts,

Oh my gosh, could it be we have a celebrity in the audience? One of the famous Farkle kids from Laugh-In, all grown up and becoming an EJami?

Once more a sellar picture gallery, especially Sami channeling her inner Prevuze. But I wonder about the Melanie picture.

I pointed it out to my husband and we had the following exchange:

Me: You know, this line fantacizing about an erector set could be interpreted two ways. Maybe it should have been censored.

Him: The word "erect" was a perfectly good one until humans came along.

With that I leave you with the next holiday refrain:

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, three dangling plot points;

Two Neanderthals staring,

And Sami still looking for Syd.

On the 4th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: 4 people in yet another quadrangle, 3 dangling plot points, 2 staring Neanderthals, and Sami still looking for Sydney.

Prevuze, loved the Macgyver reference. Loved that guy and I'm sure Super-Rafe is even more skilled than he was.

word verification: "taino" as in "taino body's business who Steffie is on the phone with."

Well so much for EJ working with the Salem PD on this. OMG, he's going rogue! Maybe he just read Sarah Palin's book. HAHAHAHAHA

I can't imagine Justin trying to sabotage Carly's job opportunity for the sake of Ho and Dope's marriage. Especially since it was going down the tubes before she even got there.

Rafe says "She's brooding, not eating, depressed, not saying much." He forgot bawling and screaming.

LOL over the reason for Victor's sunglasses and Sami hearing "Say it with him"

You got us to Friday, fighting blizzards and wading thru DOOL for us. Thanks, Prevuze, and happy weekend all. Oh, my contribution:

On the 5th day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Maggie butting in.
4 in a quadrangle

Carly interrupts them. Daniel and Carly recognize each other and the old pals share a big hug.

According to the spoilers, that’s not all they share. Apparently, Melanie isn’t the only one that has ever fantasized about or made use of an erector set.

Sami is hot to go right now. EJ thinks they should wait and take things slowly.

EJ must watch DOOL because the writers’ mantra is definitely “wait and take things excruciatingly slowly”.

Rafe thinks Sami should wear a wire. "It won't work," says EJ, "Father will be to skeptical. He thinks his barber wears a wire."

OK I have to give the writers their due. That was pretty funny.

Arianna says she respects the fact Rafe loves Sami. Gabi is worried about the fact that Sydney is EJ's daughter, "The whole situation is creepy."

Gabi appears to be rather astute. Since none of the kids belong to him, I have always found Rafe’s obsession with the mother of a teenager and three very young children to be a very creepy form of weird. By now, most men would have headed into the sunset in search of another woman with great hoots and far less baggage.

Larry, Moe and Curly Sue all head for the DiMera mansion.

What a proud moment for Roman. His daughter has decided to play “Mission Impossible” without consulting him, and her back up consists of two guys who hate each other. This should work well.

She heads into the house.

Around the perimeter of the property, the guards and their viscous dogs take their afternoon siesta. What's more, the elaborate DiMera security system shorts out.

I guess Stefano has never heard of ADT.

"You know something, Samantha, you are going to live in hell, because you are never going to see your Sydney. I'll make sure of that."

EJ stares.

Rafe stares.

Sami stares.

The viewers stare and then sigh. At least they know a red herring when they see one.

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 6 spools of professional grade wire. Otherwise, where the hell would have Rafe found any?

"Carly, it would be my privilege to grope... uh... work with you again."
Awesome. Chole/Dan/Carly/Bo/Hope/Justin. Love hexagon!

Rafe opens the door , "She's right. It's the only way to go."
What!? Was he eavesdropping? Or does he just mindlessly agree with anything Sami says?

"You're afraid if it works you'll be betraying your father," says Rafe.
Then why would he bring up the idea in the first place!?

Justin says Daniel doesn't know the whole story.
What 'whole' story? He did exactly what Daniel accused him of.

Outside, Rafe coaches, "Take it slow, Sami."
Yeah, because Stefano wouldn't suspect a calm, reasonable, Sami.

He warns Justin to get of the Bo and Hope train and says he knows Justin's marriage is on the rocks and he should deal with that
He is awfully focused with Bo and his harpy.

EJ stares.

Rafe stares.

Sami stares.


Prevuze stares.


where have the EJicole's been through all of this?
They... they exist???

This episode leaves me with more questions than I came with.

Let me add my thanks to everyone who contributed to what will certainly be an upcoming special Prevuze posting, and a special thanks to Berg for getting the ball rolling.

We'll declare it a tradition and assign Berg the responsibility of getting it started again next year.

And every year we can review the previous years efforts! I forgot how great the first 12 days of DOOL Christmas were. Fake baby bumpers and all.

Happy to kick it off again in 2010.

Does this mean we do the best of 2009 for New Years too - it might be hard to come up with a single item for that list. I have been watching VH1 too much.

It'd be too big a job to go back through everything, I think. For me, I do whatever I come up with the night before. There isn't exactly a lot of long range planning involved.
