Mean And Immoral

We pan in on the bench as Judge Goldberg announces he has reached a verdict. He has Nicole stand.

Anna gets off the phone and tells Sydney her ex-mother is being sentenced, "Never let that happen to me. I'd rather die than be caught wearing those ugly boots."

Over at the Java Café, Gabi lectures Chad for not telling her about the baby. He says he thought she already knew about that, and then gets called back to work. Mia steps up and tells Gabi she should have said something, "You should know the whole story... The real story... The Gospel According To Mia..."

The judge extols Nicole's repentance. He says he knows she's fragile. EJ stews while Judge Goldberg practically sanctifies Nicole. The DA stews. The judge says her sentence will be reduced because of her remorse. Sami stews... three — two — one...

KABLOOIE!

Sami blows up into a screamin' flailin' hissy-fit.

Maggie and Chloe are at the hospital as Chloe beats herself up over her lack of abilities to fill Maggie's shoes while Mags and the Mickster go off on their cruise. We're not talking about Maggie's volunteer job at the hospital, we're talking about the major responsibility of being the town gossip. Nobody can fill in for Maggie when it comes to that. Lexie pops in and tells Chloe she'd better check out the proceedings at the courthouse.

Sami goes nuclear. The judge threatens all kinds of contempt citations. Rafe remains calm (lobotomies do have their place). He stands and subdues Typhoon Samantha.

Judge Goldberg announces the sentence: 20 years including time served. Nicole swoons. Chivalrous Brady jumps over three rows of seats and catches her as she starts to fall. Arianna soaks it in and simmers. EJ applauds the show.

Nicole announces, "There is something I need to say."

Brady steps away. The judge is reluctant to let Nicole speak, but she says it's about Sydney.

Conniving Mia tells Gabi she and Chad have been through a lot, "We're going through it not just as friends. No matter what we say or try to deny it it's always been more. I went to the dance with Will, but I feel like Chad is my soul mate. But don't say anything to either of them. I 'm telling you this because I don't want to see you get played."

The judge gives Nicole permission to speak. Nicole speechifies, "I know what I did was horrible. I should pay. But Sydney... has done nothing wrong and what's worse than prison is what she is going through right now. Please keep searching."

The crowd responds in unison, "Nah... We've decided to give up."

A knock at the cabin door interrupts Anna and Sydney.

Nicole shuts up and they haul her off. Arianna gives Brady a look cold enough to reverse global warming, and then leaves.

Will calls Mia and tells her about the sentence. They agree to meet at Maggie's. Sami hugs him and they agree Mia might be able to move on with her life now. Will says he also wants to help Sami, but she says she doesn't want him to worry about her. She's sure they'll get Sydney back, "All those times I freak out and go into a screaming fit about never getting her back... that's just an act."

Mia tells Chad about Nicole's sentence. His boss gets nasty and he gets back to work. As he goes, he tells Gabi to stick around. Mia puts her spin on it, "Wow he wants you to stay like you have nothing better to do. Pretty controlling. He used to do that to me. He still does it, but I realize it shows he has feelings for me. I'm glad you won't say anything about what we've been talking about It's nice to have a friend I can trust." Mia leaves. The scent of the load of BS she just handed Gabi lingers.

Gabi starts to leave, but Chad stops her. She turns and scowls, "Stay away from me, OK?"

Brady comes into the pub, where the temperature is only a little colder than the dark side of the moon. Ice-woman Arianna is distant, "I don't understand you, Brady, and I'm beginning to think that I never will."

EJ tells Sami and Rafe it's time to get back to work on finding Sydney. Rafe announces his reinstatement. He gets a call and leaves to take it. EJ now wonders if it was a mistake not to tell him about the ransom note. Inconsistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.

Mia and Will meet at Maggie's. They sit on the couch as Mia moves in on him, "The only place I want to be is here in your arms." Talk about getting played.

Chad asks what's up with Gabi. He says he made a huge mistake with Mia, but he's not a bad person, "It's history. It's in the past." Gabi doesn't believe him. Chad asks, "Did Mia say something to you?"

"We're not supposed to be friends," snorts Gabi, "End of story." She leaves. Chad stares.

Brady gets the cold shoulder, "What is this really about?" Forget the cold shoulder, what he needs to get is a clue.

Arianna snaps back at him, "This is about you wanting Nicole to be free after what she's done to your sister."

"Yeah," admits the doof, "I would like Nicole to be free."

Sympathetic Chloe visits Nicole. Nicole says she doesn't plan to appeal because this is what she deserves. She also wonders if they don't all know the mystery woman who took Sydney.

Anna declares the noise was a tree branch, "Or was it?"

Sami can't believe EJ's 180° flip, "Bipolar behavior is my department!" Hold on to your horses, fans, now EJ flips back. He figures it might be too risky to tell Rafe. Any members of the audience who need to be treated for whiplash should report to the infirmary. EJ rationalizes not telling Rafe, "Are we agreed?"

Oops. And there he is... standing at the door listening... Rafe "Starfish" Hernandez.

Maggie and Lexie come into Maggie's kitchen. Lexie carries a box and finds a picture inside. It's an old photo of Maggie, Mickey, Alice and Tom. They reminisce. Maggie tells Lexie she and Mickey fight on occasion. Lexie can't believe it. "It's true," says Maggie, "For one thing, the word 'Bonnie' kind of tees me off."

Out in the living room the little vixen Mia moves in on Will, "I need you so much!" A noise stops them but Mia revs him up again.

Chloe asks for a minute alone with Nicole. The cop leaves. Security at the Salem courthouse has been outsourced to the same incompetent company as the Salem hospital and Salem jail. Nicole says she regrets the time they spent fighting. Chloe vows to write and visit. Nicole tells her not to take Daniel's love for granted, "For over a year I chased this illusion when real love... Brady... was looking me right in the face. I threw that away."

Arianna is about ready to throw Brady away, too. She asks what Brady would do if Nicole didn't go to jail. Brady dunno. Disgusted Arianna tells him to go say goodbye to Nicole. Brady leaves. Arianna cries, "You're still in love with her, Brady. I know it and so do you."

Rafe asks what EJ and Sami are talking about. Sami tells him they're just discussing Nicole and the light sentence. Rafe doesn't buy it.

Mia continues munch around on Will. They are once again interrupted, this time by a knock at the door. Mia answers to find Gabi. Gabi says she is there to return a muffler Mia left. She walks in and soaks in the aftermath as the disheveled, hormone-crazed teens attempt to straighten themselves up.

Maggie talks about her excitement the day the picture was taken. She rolls through everything that has happened since then and figures she's lucky to have found the man of her dreams and held onto him, except for a little peccadillo or two. They talk about Lexie, Abe and Theo. Lexie thinks Mickey and Maggie have been a great example for them.

Nicole gets emotional, "Can you go before they come to take me away?"

Chloe agrees, "I'm always (say it with her) going to be here for you Nicole. I'm gonna go before I cry." Chloe leaves.

Nicole weeps. She hears the door reopen and turns, "Chloe, I told you..."

BRADY!

Nicole drops her jaw.

Rafe tries again. He wants to know what the agreement was about. EJ insists they were talking about Nicole's sentence, then decides he has to go. They all leave. Suspicious Rafe stares.

Gabi gives Mia the muffler. Mia sends will off to get her a drink. Gabi asks why she was kissing Will.

Will comes into the kitchen. Maggie tells him she needs to go pack and heads upstairs.

Mia claims she and Will weren't kissing. Gabi is skeptical. She wants to know why Mia is stringing Will along, "Isn't that a mean and immoral thing for you to do?" Mia says she doesn't have to explain anything to Gabi.

Meanwhile back at the pub, Nicole's apparition walks in to taunt Arianna, "I'll be in his heart always."

Arianna pops back to reality, "No. I won't let it be."

Nicole tells Brady the mistakes she made were in spite of him not because of him, "You are the only one who ever cared and I don't want you to be hurt. Arianna... just be careful. Check her out. I overheard her... she is a drug dealer."

"No," insists Brady, "She isn't."

"Just don't let her hurt you like I did," begs Nicole, "Which brings me to the second thing I need to say. Don't call, write or visit me. I won't see you. It will be too hard for me. The one thing I can give you is to let you go."

Sami and Rafe get back to her apartment. Sami wants to know why he's been so quiet, "What's wrong?"

"You tell me."

EJ is back in the rumpus room. He gets a call, "What? OMG!" He rushes out.

Anna plays with Sydney and hears another sound, "Someone is here."

Mia apologizes for being mean and says Gabi came in at a bad time. "Tell me about it," says the ever-perceptive Gabi. Mia thanks her for the scarf. On her way out, Gabi tells her if she cares about Chad she should leave Will alone.

Will listens, "What did she mean by that?"

The guard interrupts, it's time to go. Nicole tells Brady, "Even though I'll never see you again, you'll always be with me forever." Kiss & go.

Maggie staggers into the kitchen and sits. She erupts into tears. Oh the despair!

Sami says she has nothing to tell Rafe and doesn't know why he's acting suspicious. Rafe says he doesn't think she and EJ were being honest, "Is there something you want to tell me?"

Anna carries Sydney across the room and opens the door.

EJ!

Hmmm how could Anna have heard EJ outside, when he was in court? Intresting. Not sure I would jump to any conclusions just yet.

Best line of the day? Oops. And there he is... standing at the door listening... Rafe "Starfish" Hernandez.

This sounds truly worthy of the price of admission. Thank goodness admission is free.

Rafe remains calm (lobotomies do have their place).

Prevuze that is LOL funny!!!

Mia leaves. The scent of the load of BS she just handed Gabi lingers.

Apparently, Mia no longer believes that Chad ruined her life. Sigh.

EJ now wonders if it was a mistake not to tell him about the ransom note. Inconsistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.

The minds of the DOOL creative team must be teensy tiny.

Mia moves in on him, "The only place I want to be is here in your arms." Talk about getting played.

WTF?!!

Oops. And there he is... standing at the door listening... Rafe "Starfish" Hernandez.

Prevuze that is LOL hysterical and ever so naughty!!!

Anna carries Sydney across the room and opens the door.

EJ!

Hmmmmmm - those tricky writers have pulled the door switcheroo on us before. I wonder if this is just another red herring. Actually I'm hoping that Tony has once again joined the ranks of the Salem undead and is behind the second kidnapping.

Nicole gets 20 years. Since the writers have already used up their early release card on Lucas, I’m curious how they are going to explain an unpregnant-looking Nicole’s speedy return to Salem.

Thanks for the super hump day recap Prevuze!!!

All things considered, that's still a pretty high price to pay for one shining moment engulfed in a sea of dreck.

20 years including time served.

Time served? You mean the three weeks she’s already been in the slammer, or the years she’s suffered since she’s been back on DAYZ?

EJ now wonders if it was a mistake not to tell him about the ransom note. Inconsistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.

No kidding. EJ didn’t want to tell Rafe because he USED to be FBI & EJ didn’t want to take the chance Rafe would revert to FBI protocol. But now that Rafe actually IS FBI again, it would be OK to tell him?? Only thing this was about was filling a scene with meaningless dialog.

Rafe "Starfish" Hernandez.

ROFLMAO! An under the table, ya gotta be in the know to get it, censored statement right out in the open. Prevuze you are too much!

Mike R - another stellar photo about Aunt Annie's pretzel. Could TPTB be making their product placements a little more subtle than the ham-fisted Cheerios' plugs? LOL

Another great Prevuze and another day closer to the weekend. Bless you!

I wonder if stringing two guys at once is some kind of homework from Melanie to prove Mia is ready to take over the premier party girl business. What happened with the shy girl who felt ashamed for what she did with Chad and wanted to take things extremely slow with Will? I quess Gabby is the cute innocent girl in the group now, while Mia is the conniving little blond bitch.

Which makes me thinking... Maggie and Mickey are preparing to leave for months. Melanie is about to get marry and leave as well. That means sexually charged Mia who just discovered her new lying and meneating abilities will be living there all alone? This cals for the longest and wildest party Salem High ever experienced.

Just wild speculation on my part, but I have a hunch Mickey is going to be gone a bit longer than that.

The writers saw Mia (and the actress who plays her) didn't work as the sweet little heroine so now out of the blue they try the conniving little bitch personality BUT...i am afraid she doesn't click as the bitchy girl either..she is just flat bitchy or sweety/saccharine..there are people like that..but generally for the sake of the viewers they are not actors !! lol
After AZ/Nicole maternity leave i smell a Bricole coupling for sure !
I am ok with that they have chemistry and for me it's the most important !! lol

I'm not in the know. What's the snark behind the starfish comment?

Sami screamin flailin hissy-fit. Love em or hate em at least it's something Sami would actually do. I'd much rather see that than her sniveling, wimpy and waiting for someone else to do something.

If I can't have Tony behind the door, I'll settle for EJ. Go get your revenge and then go get your girl.

I think Arianne needs to be in that picture for Salem idiots.

You think? I´m the only one who remembers early Kristen Storms as Belle? She was bad as well and now she is star on GH. Being blond sexy looking young girl usually secures your job fairly well in TV business.

Hey, scootch over and make room for Pard and Bo on the village idiots bench.

Leslie - if only it really was Tony behind the kidnapping. Wouldn't that be cool!? Hey, writers, take a hint.

Do they actually have the people in the courtroom who would be there like Stefano, Kate, Pard? Or were they too cheap to hire them to come in for those days?

Loved "It's true," says Maggie, "For one thing, the word 'Bonnie' kind of tees me off." You know, Prevuze, we in the audience aren't supposed to be smart enough to remember the Bonnie debacle. You foiled their plans for the sugary sweet "our marriage was totally perfect" reminiscing when they have the big Mickster memorial.

LOL over The crowd responds in unison, "Nah...We've decided to give up." and "All those times I freak out and go into a screaming fit about never getting her back...that's just an act."

Thank you Prevuze, for the mid-week boost! :D

"Never let that happen to me. I'd rather die than be caught wearing those ugly boots."
Even if... when she is caught, I doubt anything significant will happen to her.

Gabi lectures Chad for not telling her about the baby.
First, is it any of Gabi's business? Have they even been on a date?

20 years including time served.
We all know she'll be out in 2 with good behavior. Seriously, Nick murdered someone and Lucas attempted to, and her sentence is more than double both of theirs combined.

"All those times I freak out and go into a screaming fit about never getting her back... that's just an act."
Haha! So true.

"Wow he wants you to stay like you have nothing better to do.
Wow... Mia is a bitch.

"The only place I want to be is here in your arms."
Double bitch.

Sami tells him they're just discussing Nicole and the light sentence.
As opposed to the ultra harsh sentences they received for the their crimes, some of which are in no question more severe than Nicole's.

"I'm always (say it with her) going to be here for you Nicole.
Except when you need me to bail you out.

"Isn't that a mean and immoral thing for you to do?"
Outside of Seventh Heaven, I have never heard a teenager talk like that.

"Is there something you want to tell me?"
How many times does someone have to say 'NO!' Good grief, man.
