Hey Chloe You're Nuts — You Should See A Shrink

Justin sits by Hope in her hospital room. Hope hallucinates, "No! Stop her! No!"

Justin quiets her, "It's all over. I'm right here."

Hope zones out, "Bo..."

Bo is at the cop-shop talking on the phone, "Tell Hope I'll be there as soon as I can, Lexie."

Carly comes in and overhears, "Let me talk to her." She tries to grab the phone but Bo pulls it away from her. "How's Melanie," screams Carly. Bo snaps the phone shut and tells the cop who brought Carly in that he can leave. Carly huffs and puffs, "Oh, God... my baby.... is she dead?"

"There's no brain activity," says Bo, "But for Melanie, that's not a problem."

Phillip sits with Melanie and spews platitudes. Daniel comes in, "It's time for me to grop... uh... examine her."

Phillip asks about her prognosis. Daniel hesitates. "Tell me she's going to wake up," whines Phillip, "Tell me."

Woozy Hope asks Justin if Bo is out in the hallway. Justin dunno. She asks if Carly is all right, "Melanie... did Carly find her? My God... Vivian... where is she?"

Justin gives her the bad news, "Melanie was shot,"

Hope asks, "Vivian shot her?"

"Carly shot her."

"Wow," says Hope, "I believe in strict parenting but that's a little overboard." She starts to get up but Justin stops her. "I have to find Bo," she gasps.

Carly frets, "She's been comatose too long. What if she doesn't wake up? Her life has been hell because of me and now she could die."

"Don't fall apart," orders Bo, "Don't let Vivian and Lawrence win. Vivian will pay. I will make sure of that."

Nathan smooches Stephanie who has morphed into Melanie — sans gunshot wounds.

Smelanie dives in for more and then Nathan pops out of his fantasy as Stephanie brings breakfast in bed. She asks about his dream. Nathan consults the Guy Manual, "If you'd rather eat that breakfast than wear it, we advise you clam up."

Daniel takes Phillip out into the waiting area and tells him Melanie is stable. "Then why doesn't she wake up," asks Phillip.

"What part of 'stable' confuses you," asks Daniel, "Waking up would be 'improving.' Don't tell the AMA I said this, but what I need now is for Melanie to feel safe. I don't want her to know how scared you are. I'd also like Maggie to go in there. She needs to be surrounded by people who love her and, as you know, they are few and far between."

Stephanie tells Nathan he was tossing and turning all night. She asks what he was dreaming about. He sidesteps the issue and kisses her.

Arianna and Brady cuddle in bed. Arianna smiles, "I'm not in prison dreaming. I'm here with you."

"You are here," says Brady, "and I am here."

"This is awful," says Arianna.

"Now that was a real mood swing," says Brady.

"No," says Arianna, "I was talking about the dialog. I'm also thinking it's wrong to be happy with Melanie... and Phillip..."

"The one thing about Melanie is she sure doesn't give up," says Brady, "She will be all right. She has to be."

Eleanor Snodgrass from Walla Walla stands up in the audience, "SPEAK FOR YOURSELF!"

Maggie joins Phillip and Melanie. Maggie spews a few platitudes.

Carly insists Vivian has won. Bo insists she hasn't. Carly insists she has. Bo insists she hasn't. Carly... you get the idea. Bo says there is something he has to do and leaves.

William Shakespeare looks on, "Why couldn't I write scenes like that?"

Justin forces Hope to stay in bed. Hope asks about the comb. She figures Victor must have switched it, "That means Victor didn't mind if Vivian was trying to kill Melanie just as long as she didn't get away with it."

Bo comes back in, "You are free to go."

"Huh-wha?"

"I posted your bail," says Bo, "You're not gong back to your cell when Vivian is free."

"That was a lot of money," says Carly, "Where did you get it?"

"Hope's petty cash drawer."

"I don't know how to thank you."

"For starters," says Bo, "Don't jump bail... And don't go anywhere near your daughter."

Hope dresses. Justin says, "You shouldn't be leaving. You have a head injury and there can be serious consequences if you ignore it."

Natasha Richardson's ghost backs him up, "He's right. It's not really advisable to ignore head injuries."

"She's got that right," says Michael Kennedy.

"Couldn't agree more," says Mark Donohue.

"It's got my vote," says Sonny Bono.


Chloe finds Daniel. They talk about Melanie's condition. Chloe wonders if she will be OK. "I can't say right now," says Daniel, "I can't deal in false hope."

"Whereas I can manufacture it," says Chloe.

OH! WHAT A SEGWAY!

"You don't have to go through this alone," says Daniel, "I am (say it with him) here for you. I love you and always will. I think you need help."

Maggie sits beside Melanie and spews platitudes.

Carly wants to see Melanie. "If you are within 20 feet of her," says Bo, "not only are you exposing yourself to her cooties, but you are also in violation of your bail and will go back to jail. Let me prove you were trying to protect her." He gets a call, "I'll be right there." He hangs up and tells her he has a call with someone from Switzerland who can prove Vivian knew Melanie was her daughter. He leaves.

Carly drones, "I'm sorry Bo, but no one will keep me from my daughter."

Daniel tries to comfort Chloe. Chloe tries to comprehend... anything. Daniel suggests she see a therapist. He gives her the therapist's card and says he made an appointment, then gets a page and leaves.

Chloe sighs, "Well, Daniel, it looks like you have it all worked out for me."

Brady arrives at the hospital and talks to Phillip about Melanie. Maggie comes out and tells them not to give up hope. Brady goes in for the next shift. Phillip asks how could this have happened.

"Carly didn't get her marksmanship merit badge when she was in the Girl Scouts," says Maggie.

Brady sits with Melanie and spews more platitudes.

Bo stands in the interrogation room talking on his phone. He leaves a message for Carly, "You said you would stay put."

Hope walks in. Bo lectures her for leaving the hospital. "I know what happened," says Hope, "I am the one person who can get Carly out of this mess. Is she still in her holding cell?"

Carly sneaks around the hospital.

Chloe is on the phone at the pub canceling her appointment with the shrink. She drops her phone and Arianna picks it up, "That doctor's appointment isn't serious is it?"

"Daniel seems to think it is."

Daniel and Maggie talk about Melanie. Daniel thinks things may not be good but doesn't think it would be a good idea to tell Phillip. Maggie decides to call Nathan and give him the good... uh... bad news. Daniel leaves. Maggie calls, Nathan and leaves a message asking him to call her.

Nathan and Melanie come back from the slopes chattering about her first time on a snowboard. "Who's idea was it for this vacation," asks Stephanie.

"I have good ideas," says Nathan. He gets other ideas and hauls her onto the bed. Stephanie is so into it she notices there is a message on his phone. Nathan chucks his phone and dives in.

Daniel asks Phillip to go home and get some rest. Phillip agrees and they walk out together as Carly sneaks in.

Brady spews more platitudes and then leaves. Carly skulks. After Brady is out of the way she starts to go into Melanie's room. Daniel sees her, "Just what the hell do you think you are doing?"

Nathan and Stephanie cuddle. Nathan goes for a shower and invites her to join him. "Go warm up the water first," says Stephanie. Nathan leaves. She digs into her purse and pulls out that crazy note from Melanie. She reads it again. Nathan walks out, "What's that?"

"It's a letter from Melanie."

Phillip opens the door at the Kiriakis mansion to find Justin. He reports there is no change with Melanie, "Before you go back to the hospital you need to know something."

Bo speculates Victor thought he could neutralize Vivian before she did any harm. Hope asks if Carly is still in jail. "No," says Bo, "she's out."

"But her bail was so high," says Hope, "How did she get it? She couldn't get her hands on that kind of money."

"She got her hands on that kind of money because I got my hands on her," says Bo.

Daniel lectures Carly for trying to see Melanie. Carly begs, "But I want to go in there and spew platitudes." She spews a few sample platitudes as she argues with him and begs him to let her in.

Chloe tells Arianna Daniel thinks she should see a therapist, "But he can't just come out and say, 'hey, Chloe, you're nuts — you should see a shrink.'"

"Sounds like good advice to me," says Arianna, "Look at the bright side, if Marlena were still on the show, you'd have to see her." Arianna convinces her to give it a try and leaves. Chloe wads up the therapist's card.

Bo tells Hope how he got a big wad-o-money to help Chloe. "I didn't even know there was such a thing as a third mortgage," says Hope, "And I think you did it because you love her."

Carly begs. Dimwit Daniel buys it. They go into Melanie's room.

Stephanie says Melanie gave her the note before the wedding and reminds Nathan they agreed not to talk about her, "I feel bad for what happened between you two guys — are you mad?"

I will be," says Nathan, "if you don't get our butt in the shower with me." He leaves and Stephanie tears up the note.

Hope says she thought when Bo saved her from the box-valanche things would change for them, "It's too late, isn't it?" She walks out.

Justin tells Phillip everything Carly said was true, "Vivian was plotting to kill Melanie. Carly was trying to protect her. Vivian had Carly kidnapped. But there's more. The comb... was a gift form Vivian. She was trying to poison her. Victor found out and switched the combs."

Phillip gasps, "My father knew?"

"Yeah, sorry."

"And Hope said all this was true?"

"Yes."

Phillip asks Justin to go, "I needed to know this. I have to handle it myself." Justin leaves. Phillip walks out into the foyer and looks upstairs, "Vivian! Could you come down? We need to talk."

Daniel escorts Carly into Melanie's room, "This is against my better judgment. You have five minutes and that's it." Carly sits and spews platitudes.

After endless platitudinous minutes, Carly starts to leave. Suddenly Melanie chokes and looks around. Carly runs back to her and caresses her cheek, "Let me make it up to you."

Daniel rushes in, "OMG! It's acute platituditis! Crash cart! Stat!"

I wouldn't want Vivian to be offed. She is providing much needed relief on this show.

Natasha Richardson's ghost backs him up, "He's right. It's not really advisable to ignore head injuries." naughty, naughtly Prevuze, but frankly, damn funny.

First, why is anyone listening to Justin and second, please tell me they didn't bring the actress playing Vivian back only to get rid of her. I love her!!! And besides, DOOL could save money by just whacking the entire Hernandez clan.

Wow. And here I thought Hope would be in a month long coma so the only witness could prolong the angst.

"What part of 'stable' confuses you," asks Daniel, "Waking up would be 'improving.'
Haha!

I don't think I've seen Carly happy, she's always so morose and it's beginning to bug me.

Phillip asks how could this have happened.
Philip is gunning hard for stupid questioner of the day.

She digs into her purse and pulls out that crazy note from Melanie. She reads it again.
Why, exactly, does she still have the damn note?

I would be upset if someone kept a message from me that they were supposed to personally deliver, but that's just me.

"It's too late, isn't it?" She walks out.
That woman is intolerable.

"There's no brain activity," says Bo, "But for Melanie, that's not a problem."

Melanie could be the quintessential bubble headed bleach blond except that she’s a red head.

Carly frets, "She's been comatose too long.”

Not half as long as the viewers.

Arianna smiles, "I'm not in prison dreaming. I'm here with you."

"You are here," says Brady, "and I am here."

…and I am here vowing that when I get home tonight and fire up my DVR I am going to zap through this entire insipid exchange.

Eleanor Snodgrass from Walla Walla stands up in the audience, "SPEAK FOR YOURSELF!"

Hear, hear!!!!

Daniel sees her, "Just what the hell do you think you are doing?"

Spewing platitudes.

Nathan goes for a shower and invites her to join him. "Go warm up the water first," says Stephanie.

Since hotels have mondo-sized water heaters, I have never found it necessary to wait on the hot water.

"Sounds like good advice to me," says Arianna, "Look at the bright side, if Marlena were still on the show, you'd have to see her."

Harsh Prevuze – very harsh. All the Jarlenas reading this blog are now weeping uncontrollably.

Phillip gasps, "My father knew?"

Am I experiencing déjà vous all over again? If memory serves me correct, I believe that Stefano hid from EJ the fact that he knew about the baby switch. What an incredible coincidence that in the very same town on the very same soap that another father is keeping critical secrets from his son. Heaven forfend!!!

I really can’t stand Melanie, and I can’t begin to comprehend what Phillip sees in her. However now that they are sporting matching bullet holes in the chest, I guess they really are meant for each other.

At the risk of sprewing platitudes, great job Prevuze and keep up the good work!

She spews a few sample platitudes...Melanie chokes...Daniel rushes in, "OMG! It's acute platituditis! Crash cart! Stat!"

Just THINKING about all the platitude spewing almost had me spewing my coffee. But I LOVE episodes I can zap through and this certainly is a candidate for mondo boffo zapping.

A few of my favorite Prevuisms not already mentions: "Wow," says Hope, "I believe in strict parenting but that's a little overboard."; the pic suggesting Chloe's baby was already SORASed; and the long list of folks who have had head injuries and lived (or not) to tell the tale.

Hail to Prevuze, best medical history blog on the Internet®!

If the Salem PD ever needs their own Cagney & Lacey I am all for seeing Hope & Carly as the crackshots - Hope shot Kayla accidentally and now this Carly/Melanie fiasco - no one in Salem would be safe. . .except for the criminals!!!

I think the title of this episode could've had a blank in it, as in: "Hey ------ You're Nuts, You Should See a Shrink!" Any name you fill in there would be appropriate.

LOL over this Klaus comment: "It's too late, isn't it?" She walks out. That woman is intolerable." Amen! Who is she to give grief over Bo forking over what must be a bundle when she gave away her inheritance to some charity? Anyway, I refer everyone to yesterday's accurate Prevuze Ho and Dope picture that she would eventually find a way to make it all Bo's fault. HA

And Leslie, we don't have to worry about the Jarlena fans being offended. Remember, they all vowed in a rage to quit watching/reading, along with the Shelles, Lumis and Jack and Jennifer crowds.

Loved the Krispy Kreme picture (I actually toyed with the idea of going there myself today) and acute platituditis! Thanks, Prevuze, great almost-to-Friday recap today!

Exactly. I was thinking of this but forgot who she gave the money to.

I am going to zap through this entire insipid exchange.
Leslie, don't! That's Shakespeare right there.

I was wondering while watching Daniel's face today when he found out Carly is Melanie's mother... could HE turn out to be the father?

Think about it: Carly's known Daniel for a long time and Daniel has pretty much "groped" every woman he's ever come in contact with...

Things that make ya go... hmmmmmmmm...
