The Flunky Theory

Rafe is on the phone playing G-man in Sami's living room. He hangs up and EJ comes out from getting Sydney down for a nap. He says Sami is back trying to get Johnny and Allie to sleep, "She's playing reruns of the Syd-napping for them. They'll be asleep in no time." EJ just happens to mention the fact Rafe and Sami are on a break. Rafe says he wants to talk to EJ about Anna, without Sami being there reaching critical mass and interrupting things.

Kate comes into the rumpus room and reminds Stefano to take his meds. "I would not need them so much if Nicole was still behind bars," says Stefano.

Kate says, "Even Nicole can't regulate your blood sugar, but believe me if she has half a brain in her head she will stay far away from Salem and your family."

Stefano pops his pills, grabs Kate and pulls her in, "I feel better already." Well, it is the rumpus room. It looks like Stefano has a little rumpusing in mind.

Brady turns to Nicole, "This is where you zip it." He turns and tells Arianna he wants to marry her. Arianna says Nicole is free and that changes everything.

Brady asks, "Do you want to marry me or not."

"Yes..."

Nicole interrupts, "But you know you don't have a prayer, right?"

Brady turns back to Nicole, "If you butt in one more time I will knock you on your butt." And the Emmy for using "butt" twice in one sentence goes to...

Brady turns back to Arianna, "What's it gonna be?"

Arianna rambles. Bottom line, Arianna is worried about Nicole, "I came in here and she was sticking her tongue down your throat."

"She was saying goodbye," says insists Brady.

"It looked more like hello to me," says Arianna, "If we get married, will she be hanging around for all the Days Of Our Lives? If you can't forget her I don't want to marry you today."

Will comes to the DiMera mansion. He announces he's grounded but got out of the house to bring Kate's present back. Stefano thinks it's not right that Will is being punished for letting him see Sydney. Will thinks it's not right he's being punished for being in the middle of things, "My little sister got kidnapped because someone was trying to get even with you. I don't like my family being your poker chip."

Rafe wonders why Anna would kidnap a DiMera baby and make everyone think the baby died. EJ says Tony's death pushed Anna over the edge, "But why would she do it on her own?"

"I guess you haven't heard," says Rafe, "Anna wasn't acting on her own." Caution: The following link is completely tasteless and offensive and has therefore been deemed to be DOUBLE CENSORED.

Brady... Arianna... boredom... Nicole watches and rolls her eyes. Brady says, "I want to be married to you. Not to you and Nicole. I can be your husband and Nicole's friend." OMG. Brady must sit down and read the Guy Manual. Three... two... one...

KABLOOIE!!

Arianna blows up, "The next time Nicole calls and wants you to talk her off the ledge, what will you do?"

"Ignore her," promises Brady, "If I can do that can you forgive the fact she called?"

"I can try."

"Then let's get married today," says Brady.

"M'kay."

Nicole continues to watch and roll her eyes.

Chad and Mia are both working at the Java Café. Mia tells him she broke things off with Will. Chad asks how Will took it. "He was a wreck," says Mia, "but he'll get over me. You are the only one I want." They grab each other and put on a huge PDA behind the counter. Gabi comes up as they suck face, "I'll have a mocha lava jatte with five sugars. Can you two stop pawing each other long enough to get it for me?"

Kate insists she wasn't trying to bribe Will. He says Sami and EJ are both mad at Stef'n-Ho, "And EJ is mad at me. He called me a 'bloody little bastard.'"

Stefano comes to his defense, "I will not let Elvis be calling you that, even though... technically... you are a bastard."

Rafe says somebody had to be watching the baby when Anna was out. He thinks maybe she had a flunky working for her. "You could be right about that," says the flunky.

Brady and Arianna smooch. Brady decides they've gotten their first fight out of the way. They run off to find the Justice of the Peace.

Nicole turns to the bartender, "Keep 'em coming." The JP comes in and says he was delayed. Nicole says if he has time on his hands maybe they could find a way to fill it.

Stef'n-Ho argue about who gets to tell EJ off. Stefano wins and says he will make it clear EJ can't treat Will like that.

Rafe says there is something that doesn't jive with the 'flunky theory,' "Anna said something about this not being her idea."

EJ says he thinks Anna was just nervous, "Can you imagine she was standing here talking to Sydney's mother?"

Rafe vows, "Don't worry, we'll get Anna AND the person she was working with."

The Justice of the Peace introduces himself to Nicole. Nicole and Gordon get better acquainted. Nicole asks, "What does a JP do when he wants to let off steam?"

"I grab my binoculars and go off bird-watching," says Gordon.

Nicole gets closer, "Do you know what I do?"

With impeccable timing, Fay walks into the bar, "Say no, Gordon, if you have a brain in your head. Nicole, what do you think you are doing?" Nicole gets up and asks her what she is doing there. Fay says she brought the money Nicole asked for. Nicole reminds her she wanted the money wired instead of getting Fay in person.

Gordon overhears them talking about Nicole's stint in the slammer, "Prison? You were in prison?"

Nicole and Fay go on to argue about things and start talking about the Syd-napping. Gordon again gets curious, "Kidnapping? What kidnapping?"

"Nicky," says Fay, "you were safer in that prison. What will the DiMeras do to you now."

Gordon asks, "DiMeras? Who are the DiMeras?" Inquiring minds want to know.

Nicole tells Fay she will soon be on the bottom of Stefano's list of enemies. Fay asks, "Are you saying you know who took the baby? That's the person who sprung you from prison isn't it?"

Kate wants Will to talk to her. He says, "Mia was two-timing me. I dumped her."

Kate is thrilled that he took action, "Yes! That's my boy!"

"I was so clueless," whines Will.

"No," insists Kate, "You are loyal true... and clueless. Someday you will find the right person."

"I don't know," says Will, "I don't have a lot of faith when it comes to true love."

Fay lectures, "You've just gotten out of prison and here you are sitting in a bar making time with this clown."

That's Gordon's cue to excuse himself, "I have a marriage to perform."

"Thanks mom," says Nicole, "That couple he is going to marry is Brady and Arianna and I can't stop it." Fay gets upset at the fact that Nicole would even want to stop Brady's wedding. Nicole defends herself and says she just came there to see Brady, "He's the one for me. He always has been."

Brady and Arianna walk in. Nicole congratulates them on now being married. Brady makes intros, "Arianna, this is Fay. Fay, this is my fiancée Arianna."

Nicole picks up on the 'F-word,' "Fiancée," asks Nicole, "You mean you didn't go through with it?"

Mia and Gabi trade insults. "Will dumped you," says Gabi, "But you still have Chad, so get off my case."

Brady and Arianna announce the wedding garden is completely flooded, "Don't worry," says Brady, "We're still gonna do the deed. And we're going to get married, too. They've found a place to have the ceremony on the beach." Brady and Arianna run off.

Fay thinks Nicole is going to do something stupid again, "You did all those things to EJ, you faked a pregnancy and stole a baby, and he still loved another woman — Sami Brady. Now you're at it again with Brady."

Nicole insists Brady was relieved the garden was flooded, "He doesn't love her. He loves me."

Brady and Arianna get back to the room. She sees the broken string of pearls and her mood does a nosedive. She tells Brady about Paca's warning. Brady brushes it off. Arianna isn't so sure Brady is right to do that. She thinks maybe this isn't the time or place to get married.

Stefano lets Will out as Elvis comes in. Will takes one look at EJ and scoots. EJ comes in, and then Rafe follows. Rafe grills Stefano about Anna's involvement in the kidnapping. Stefano is lost. He turns to EJ, "What the hell is he talking about?"

Mia turns around and pours salt in Gabi's coffee. The old salt in the coffee trick. She must've learned that one from Lucas. Mia turns back and hands Gabi the cup. Gabi walks off.

Mia the meanie snickers . Chad sees the light. He heard Gabi saying Will dumped Mia and challenges her. Mia says Gabi was lying about that. Chad doesn't buy it. He blows up and walks off. Mia chases. Customers can get their own damn coffee.

Stefano asks, "You believe Anna kidnapped Sydney?"

EJ fires back, "So you are going to tell me you have no idea who the kidnapper is? The bureau doesn't think Anna was acting alone."

Rafe butts in, "Any of this sound familiar Mr. DiMera?"

"Sure," says Stefano, "Around here we rehash everything and recycle scripts all the time."

Nicole gets a dig in, "So you're are saying, just like you I should marry a wife-beating rapist? Brady has been (say it with her) there for me all along."

"He is marrying another woman," says Fay, "If you love him you will let him go."

"If you love me," says Nicole, "You'll let the clichés go."

Brady accuses Arianna of getting cold feet. "I've been in this dress all day," says Arianna, "and we're still not married." Brady solves that problem quick enough. He takes her dress off. Arianna asks, "Uh... aren't we doing this a little backwards?" Brady doesn't think so. He reminds her that TECHNICALLY they are SUPPOSED to be married right now. That's close enough for Arianna. Besides, with her dress around her ankles, her feet won't be cold any more.

Kate walks up and Stefano tells her Rafe has accused Anna of kidnapping Sydney and Elvis thinks Stefano may have information about whoever helped her, "Listen to me. Sydney is my granddaughter. Do you think for one moment when they thought she was dead my grief was an act. I have no idea about what Anna was up to. I swear to it on Elvis' life."

Mia catches Chad as he starts out the door, "You can't walk away. We had a baby together."

"Don't ever do that again," says Chad, "Don't use Grace to get at me. You didn't even tell me you were pregnant. Why didn't you take better care of yourself. She might be here right now. You are all about you and that's all you have right now — you." He walks out.

Fay thinks Nicole deserves a brand new start, "It's not too late for you to have a happy life."

Nicole backs off, a little too easily, "You're right. If I love Brady and myself I have to start a new life and I will. Just as soon as hell freezes over."

Brady and Arianna sit in bed and cuddle. Brady gets a call. He tells her the car is downstairs. Brady asks her if she's sure about getting married. Arianna says she is sure. She runs to get ready.

Rafe says he believes Stefano. EJ wonders, "If Father wasn't working with Anna, who was?"

"Well," says Rafe, "I guess I should run down to Santo Domingo and talk to Nicole.

Fay can't believe she got through to Nicole. Neither can we. Nicole insists she's turning over a new leaf.

Rafe gets a call and goes off to take it. Stefano asks what gave Elvis the idea he would kidnap Sydney. EJ says he doesn't know what to think anymore. Being able to think would be the first step. Kate drags Stefano off to talk to him. Rafe comes back and tells EJ he won't be going to Santo Domingo.

The JP meets Brady and Arianna and tells them there has been a shocking turn of events. Arianna shouts, "Nicole, what have you doe now?"

Carlo uses his rippling muscles busting out of his tight shirt to arrange things in Anna's hotel room. Very friendly Anna says, "I came here to get away from everything."

"Then," says Carlo, "you have come to the right place."

Stefano says he is shocked Anna could do something like this. Kate speculates, "Makes you wonder if someone didn't talk her into it."

I'm not sure how this is going to turn out when I post it. Some days you watch this show and just wind up feeling like you've had some sort of video lobotomy.

Indeed, this entire episode was total filler. What happened, Chimps started writing the show because the writers took a break?

Brady... Arianna... boredom... Prevuze you nailed that one.

So Rafe has a magical phone who gives him all the answers !
By the way can we have ONE episode without this character ?!! He sucks the life out of all his acting partners, it really doesn't favour the show. Wake up writers: he is not leading man material !

"She's playing reruns of the Syd-napping for them. They'll be asleep in no time."

That should do it! Just thinking about the Sydnapping is making me tired. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

"If we get married, will she be hanging around for all the Days Of Our Lives?”

What a stupid question. Of course, Nicole will. This is Salem.

Caution: The following link is completely tasteless and offensive and has therefore been deemed to be DOUBLE CENSORED.

…and this censored link is brought to the faithful Prevuzites by Oliver Stone.

“I can be your husband and Nicole's friend."

New flash to Brady – a kiss from a friend does not include a tongue down the throat. Prevuze is correct. Brady is in dire need of the leather bound edition of the Guy Manual.

Nicole continues to watch and roll her eyes.

I have one up on Nicole – a remote with a fast forward button. Instead of rolling my eyes, I’ll be zapping these scenes.

He reminds her that TECHNICALLY they are SUPPOSED to be married right now. That's close enough for Arianna. Besides, with her dress around her ankles, her feet won't be cold any more.

In the dictionary, you can find Arianna’s picture right next to the definition of “easy”. After her tirade about Nicole, Arianna should be grilling Brady not boinking him.

“You are all about you and that's all you have right now — you." He walks out.

Kudos to Chad! While it doesn’t take much, he appears to be the smartest guy in Salem.

Some days you watch this show and just wind up feeling like you've had some sort of video lobotomy.

That’s understandable because the writers have perfected the fine art of lobotomizing the viewers. How else can we justify watching this stuff? Prevuze - take two aspirins, get plenty of rest, and drink lots of fluids. I will leave it to your discretion to choose the type of fluid you would like to consume. You’ll feel better – or not – tomorrow.

DOUBLE CENSORED

You KNOW that just means we’ll just double-click double-quick!

"Then let's get married today," says Brady. "M'kay."

What is it lately on this show? Couples getting married, left and right, when at least one individual in the pair is conflicted/thinking of someone else/isn’t totally sure of things? Couples getting married who have known each other for all of 5 minutes? Couples getting married with no romance, no build-up of a believable relationship.

I could get with a love-at-first-sight, we’re soul-mates and let’s get married quick if it was a couple that didn’t have all the other baggage or didn’t have the least bit of hesitation in doing so. But these storylines are just so contrived!

even though... technically... you are a bastard."

LOL...When you stop to think about it, that isn’t much of an insult in this town since 95% of the folks under the age of 40 WERE conceived and/or born out of wedlock.

"Any of this sound familiar Mr. DiMera?" "Sure," says Stefano, "Around here we rehash everything and recycle scripts all the time."

Yeah, Rafe. DUH!

Another great plug for the Guy Manual and a couple of cool pictures. Thanks for suffering the slings & arrows of outrageous storytelling for us Prevuze.

Since this is DOOL I have a hunch in order to not create new scenery the Brady Brady/Arianna/Nicole scenes are not only where Shawn, Belle and Claire ended up (with the gruff bartender and his daughter) but Anna's in the same hotel.

I'm looking forward to the Chad-dumping-Mia scene.

BTW - Fay was a poor struggling waitress in a diner. Where is she getting the money to loan to Nicole all of the time and to fly down to the island? Salemites must be great tippers.

LOL over the double censored link and Rafe butts in, "Any of this sound familiar Mr.DiMera?" "Sure," says Stefano, "Around here we rehash everything and recycle scripts all the time." You can say that again! OK, "Around here we rehash everything all the time."

Thanks for the update and hope your lobotomy symptoms are much relieved with Friday's (I'm sure) exciting episode, Prevuze! ;)

I figured it was the other way around. The writing has gotten so bad it seems like the chimps took a break and the writers took over.

Haven't posted here lately for 2 reasons. One...I've been busy, two...nothing's changed on DOOL since my last post. Bo's a moron, can't get into the Carbo s/l, and I don't care about Hope/Justin/Adrianne either.

So, Nicole's out of the slammer? Who cares? I can see the Brady/Ari/Nicole triangle is going the "Passions" way, except in reverse. Theresa gets Ethan this time but she can't hang on to him because of the other blonde bimbo...I hope I'm wrong...I'm hardly ever wrong though.

I like that Sami's starting to question the fact that Anna wasn't operating on her own. Contrary to what EJ was plottin(to have Sami fall in love with him and for him to break her heart in return) it looks like Sami has the upper hand in this situation. Good for her! Girlpower!!!

Victor is awesome lately! Can't get enough of his snarky dialogue. I look forward to the Vic-Viv marriage even more than I did to the Stef-n-ho one. This should be a blast!

Thanks Prevuze for covering this endless Syd-napping s/l. I'm getting to the point where I can't stomach it anymore.
