Sick... Really Sick

Carly is with Chloe in her apartment. Carly says Chloe seems upset. Chloe says she knows Carly thinks she's not good enough for Daniel, "I know what you've done. You didn't cover your tracks."

Phillip is in Maggie's kitchen. He leaves a message and tells Chloe not to do anything rash. Melanie overhears Phillip as he talks on the phone and wonders what he is talking about. Phillip bobs and weaves and reminds Melanie Chloe is as wacko as they come. Melanie just wonders what all Chloe's wacko-ness has to do with Phillip.

Nathan and Stephanie are at the dock. He asks her if she would be disappointed if they didn't go out tonight, since he's just not in the mood for a big night out. Dejected Stephanie starts to leave, but Nathan stops her and says he meant a quiet night with her. Stephanie thinks that's a great idea. As they walk off, we pan into the waste basket where Stephanie has tossed her mystery package.

Gabi lectures Nicole in the pub. Sarcastic Nicole lectures back. Gabi has had enough and says they are done. "I'm Nicole DiMera," says Nicole Walker ex-DiMera, "I'm never done."

Arianna looks for Brady at the Kiriakis mansion.

Hope has bonked Brady and Baker says he thinks they need to get out of there. Instead, we get today's gratuitous bare-chest scene as Hope rips open Brady's shirt.

Phillip continues to backpedal. Melanie continues to press. Phillip says Chloe doesn't have many friends and he wants to (say it with him) be there for her. Melanie Phillip's message sounded pretty intense for being a friendly one. Melanie decides she shouldn't be possessive and Chloe should feel like she can talk to Phillip. She hugs Phillip and assures him he made things better as Phillip flashes back to his monkey sex episode with Chloe, "No... I have made things worse."

Carly insists she doesn't know what Chloe is talking about. Most people who know Chloe have this experience frequently. Chloe goes into total meltdown, "You're not gonna ruin anyone's life ever again."

Baker watches Hope, "Is this going to get freaky? You can't kill him."

Hope looks up at him and says she can do whatever she wants, "My game, my rules."

Carly just doesn't get what Chloe is saying. They scream back and forth as Daniel walks in, "What is going on?"

Melanie thinks Phillip is exaggerating just a bit. She doesn't understand how he made things worse. "It's complicated," says Phillip, "I talked to Chloe, she was upset and I made things worse."

"You're not telling me the truth," says Melanie, "What is it you're not telling me?"

Nathan and Stephanie lounge around his place. He talks about work and says he just wants to be alone with her.

"And I had my heart set on bowling," says Stephanie.

Nathan asks, "Do you know what I want to do?"

"I have a pretty good idea," says Stephanie.

"Besides that," says Nathan, "I want to go to Paris. But we have to do it in the springtime."

Stephanie asks, "Did you know I speak French? Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?"

"What other French phrases do you know," asks Nathan.

"None," says Stephanie, "But believe me, that one will get a girl anything she wants in Paris."


Nicole and Gabi keep it up. Gabi suggests Nicole leave. Nicole wants to know who Gabi thinks she is. "I'm a person who doesn't want a washed up old porn star ruining my sisters life," says Gabi.

"This washed up old porn star is going to make sure Brady sees the light," says Nicole.

Arianna leaves the Kiriakis mansion. Outside, she calls Brady.

Hope finishes working on Brady, "There. He won't forget tonight."

"That makes two of us," says Baker, "What the hell did you do?"

"I left my mark," says Hope. We pan in to a closeup of Brady's face.

Phillip and Melanie sit at the kitchen table and Phillip tells her about Chloe's leukemia, "After all that, she found out she couldn't have kids."

"Uh-on," says Melanie, "I'm here. Daniel's the father and Chloe's not the mother." Then Phillip tells her Chloe had a false pregnancy. Melanie gets it, but wonders why that would make Chloe smash Daniel's picture.

"She's emotional," says Phillip. And the Emmy for the understatement of the year goes to...

Daniel tells the emotional girl he could hear her down the hall. Chloe blows her stack, and Carly tells Daniel she has no idea what is wrong. Carly leaves. Daniel wants to know what's up. Chloe's dander is what's up.

"You know Carly is a part of my past," says Daniel.

"I don't know anything," snorts Chloe.

"That's pretty common knowledge," says Daniel.

Chloe steams, "I was sure you two went to a hotel and had sleazy sex."

Daniel asks, "You mean sleazy sex like you and I were having when we broke up your marriage to Lucas?"

Nicole orders a martini. Gabi refuses to get it and rants about the switcheroo. Nicole gets up and starts to get her own drink. Gabi tells her she's not allowed in back of the bar. "What," asks Nicole, "Is it against the law? Like your sister selling drugs?"

"You're a loser," says Gabi, "The biggest loser." Wait... was that some kind of cheap plug?

Baker says, "You are extremely perverse." He stoops, picks up Brady's money clip and they book.

Daniel asks, "You think Carly and I slept together? That doesn't even make sense." Daniel denies and Chloe accuses him of always protecting Carly. Things degenerate. Chloe wonders who started the rumor. Daniel dunno.

"You haven't convinced me this is a rumor," says Chloe.

Daniel assures her, "I would not do that to you and don't know why you think I would. I don't know who came up with this lie, but I love you. We're just going to have to start from the beginning. Tell me everything."

Hope and Baker have left the crime scene and Hope asks who that guy was. Baker flashes back to Brady threatening him. He says they had a little disagreement but they are even now. Hope thinks Baker doesn't want to talk about the past and wonders if he doesn't trust her.

Baker gets sarcastic, "Oh, you're my rock." He starts to go and Hope tells him they are a great team, "Until I say we're not." Baker leaves.

Hope drones, "Sometimes I think he lies." She opens her compact, looks in the mirror and checks herself out, "All dressed up and nowhere to go."

Nicole finishes making her martini. As she contemplates her masterpiece, Gabi runs up and squirts mustard in it. Nicole blows her stack as Brady staggers in. Nicole rushes over to him and catches him as he falls, "OMG!"

Chloe settles down, "It was the night of your surgery and I didn't know where you were. I talked to that nurse Greg who said you and Carly went to the Mercer Motel. Greg quit and I don't know where to find him. Then I went to the motel and the clerk said you and Carly had checked in. Or I think he said that. I don't know."

Daniel can't figure it. He says the rumor is crazy.

"Maybe I'm crazy," says Chloe, "If I am it's Carly's fault."

Daniel defends Carly, "She wouldn't make up a rumor like that."

"You think I'm paranoid," says Chloe.

"I think you're a hamburger short of picnic," says Daniel, "You have to trust me. I love you. I am on your side and if someone lied to you, I will make that person pay."

Melanie and Phillip continue to talk about Chloe. Melanie decides if he had stayed out of things he wouldn't be her wonderful Phillip, "That's one of the things I love you for. People trust you. Just like I do."

Stephanie and Nathan romp. "I love you," says Stephanie. Nathan conspicuously does not return the sentiment. He dives in for his own brand of love.

Gabi calls for an ambulance. Nicole says she can't stop Brady's bleeding. She cradles Brady in her breasts. Brady asks for a pillow instead.

They wheel Brady into the hospital. Nicole follows, but Carly stops her and tells her to sober up, then follows the team taking Brady into a room. Roman comes in. Nicole tries to stop him but he blows her off. Gabi calls Arianna.

Inside Brady's room, Carly examines him. Roman asks, "Was this the same MO as the other muggings?"

"No," says Carly, "They happened in Salem, not Missouri. Look at this..." She shows Roman Brady's new tattoo.

"That's Kat Von D's work if I ever saw it," says Roman.

Carly says, "This is sick... really sick."

Hope arrives back in her room. She stows Brady's wallet with the rest, pours a drink, slugs it down and leaves her lipstick print on the glass.

Baker walks into a big poker game. One of the boys tells him, "Your credit is no good." Baker shows them his lucky charm as well as his wad-o-cash and joins the game.

Roman takes pictures and says it'll be interesting when Brady wakes up. "I was hoping this snoozer would get interesting sometime," says Carly, "I wonder why he's they only victim who was marked like this?"

"Those temporary tattoos cost a bundle," says Roman, "DOOL is a low-budget operation."

They talk about Nicole smelling like a brewery and wonder if Brady's mugging was personal. "This can't get much more personal than Nicole DiMera says Roman." Nicole watches.

Out in the waiting area Roman suggests Nicole go home and shower because she smells like booze. Nicole refuses to go. Roman accuses her of smacking Brady. Nicole says she has an airtight alibi, "And she's over there. We were talking in the pub before Brady came in." She calls out, "Oh, Gabriela dear, the commander would like to speak to you." Roman gives Gabi his commander look.

Melanie serves dinner. Phillip isn't hungry. He suggests she not tell Chloe and Daniel she knows about this and thinks she should back off on spending time with Daniel.

"Why," asks Melanie.

Phillip asks, "Have you ever told someone something you regret. I think Chloe is uncomfortable around me."

"You didn't do anything wrong," insists Melanie. Phillip says he thinks they should give Daniel and Chloe some space. Melanie wonders if Carly knows about all this. Phillip says he doesn't know but thinks they should stay out of it.

Stephanie asks Nathan about Paris, "Tell me what we're going to do and see." She flashes back to tossing her mystery package into the trash, "I'm leaving things up to you."

"Everything," asks Nathan.

"Almost everything." Nathan talks about Paris.

Daniel and Chloe are at the dock. Motel manager Mortimer comes by. If it weren't for coincidences, DOOL wouldn't have any plot at all. Daniel stops him and asks about him talking to Chloe. Mortimer plays dumb. He looks at Chloe, "I've never seen you before in my life." He leaves.

Baker lays his cards on the table, "Two pair... nines over threes."

"Too bad," says Rocco, "Three kings."

Baker is cleaned out. But he has his lucky charm, "It's gold." He puts it into the pot.

Gabi confirms Nicole's alibi. Nicole asks Roman for an apology. Arianna walks in. Nicole wonders if Arianna can account for where she has been. Roman calls Hope. Hope is in bed and doesn't get the call. Roman leaves a message. Hope dreams about leaving the impression on Brady and snaps awake.

Daniel and Chloe get back to their place and Chloe whines around because she thinks Daniel doesn't believe her. Daniel says he does and assures her they will figure things out.

Phillip and Melanie are in bed. Uh-oh! Phillip is having performance issues, "I'm so sorry but..."

Melanie reassures him, "That's OK. I love you... failure."

"I love you, too," says Phillip, " He flashes back to his romp with Chloe. No performance issues there.

Stephanie says she feels like they are already in Paris.

Bag lady Beatrice goes through the trash and finds the mystery package Stephanie threw in there. She reads the writing on it"Stephanie Johnson. Take one daily." Well, it can't be birth control pills since they don't have any form of birth control in Salem.

Baker lays his cards on the table, "Flush."

"That's a pretty good hand," says one of the guys.

"I wasn't talking about my hand," says Baker, "I was talking about what they should do with this show."


Rocco shows his cards, "Full house." He scoops in the pot and asks where Baker got the gold money clip.

Gabi tells about Brady staggering into the pub. Nicole walks up. She says she's the one who saved Brady. Gabi says that's not true. "He walked in and fell into my arms." She turns to Arianna, "And your sister was there and I have an alibi. Tonight, you were furious with him and no one knew where you were."

Arianna gasps, "Are you accusing me?"

Nicole smirks, "Just sayin..."

Carly says Roman can talk to Brady in the morning. Roman thinks they won't get a lot out of him. Carly thinks the branding is weird. "I believe the technical term," says Roman, "is freaky and bizarre. I think whoever die this is trying to send a message."

"What do you think it means," asks Carly.

"I think it means Hope has another piece of jewelry for sale and you can buy a pendant with that brand today on HSN."

Hope sits in bed and tries to collect her thoughts, "The doctor said I would have some strange dreams. Thank God I don't remember any of them."

Too bad the viewers will remember this episode.

Too bad the viewers will remember this episode. And that sums up my feelings about this episode entirely. Not the greatest start to Monday but beggers can't be chosers.

I just want to add, am I the only one who things Hope tattooing her victims is pretty stupid as far as storylines go?

Thanks Prevuze for takin' another bullet for the team. Good thing you are wearing a Kevlar vest.

Leave it to these writers to take a good premise and kill it.

I'm already tired of Phil and Chloe and they've just had monkey sex once.

Gabi lectures Nicole in the pub.

Nicole may be a scum bag, former porn star, baby snatching, arrogant ex-con, pain in the gluteus maximus bimbo, but that doesn’t mean a self-righteous, big mouthed, annoying, under aged, family challenged, disrespectful little twit has any right to get into her face.

Hope has bonked Brady and Baker says he thinks they need to get out of there.

Hope has an uncanny ability to knock out her prey with only a single smack to the head with the butt of her gun. I wonder how much practice it takes to hit a grown man hard enough and in just the correct spot to deliver a concussion each and every time. Someone her size would need a baseball bat to do that much damage, and it might still take a couple of blows to finish off the job.

She doesn't understand how he made things worse. "It's complicated," says Phillip.

Phillip encountered no complications unclasping Chloe’s bra.

"This washed up old porn star is going to make sure Brady sees the light," says Nicole.

I wonder if Michelle (Bombshell) McGee said the same thing before she snatched Jesse James from Sandra Bullock. I still don’t understand how a former porn star can be so alluring to the men of Salem. Think of all the partners. Think of all the partners’ cooties! Yuck!

Chloe steams, "I was sure you two went to a hotel and had sleazy sex."

Daniel asks, "You mean sleazy sex like you and I were having when we broke up your marriage to Lucas?"

…or the sleazy elevator sex Chloe had with Lucas?

Nicole orders a martini. Gabi refuses to get it.

Gabi is a minor, so she had better refuse to serve Nicole. After all, she doesn’t want to have Caroline busted by the SPD.

"Maybe I'm crazy," says Chloe, "If I am it's Carly's fault."

Chloe was crazy clueless long before Carly came back to Salem.

She cradles Brady in her breasts. Brady asks for a pillow instead.

Where’s Chloe when you need her?

He flashes back to his romp with Chloe. No performance issues there.

LOL!!!!

"What do you think it means," asks Carly.

"I think it means Hope has another piece of jewelry for sale and you can buy a pendant with that brand today on HSN."

LOL part deux!!!

Flush – the sound you hear as the May sweeps starts its journey through Salem's sanitary system.

Per my soap magazine, Steponme is tossing her birth control pills in order to assure she really hooks Nathan. Apparently this fine upstanding pillar-of-the-community Brady has been taking "How to get a man" lessons from her cousin Sami.

Was the mark Hopeless made in lipstick? If so it looks like it woulda smeared off when he fell into Nicole's chest. Maybe it was with a Sharpie.

…or the sleazy elevator sex Chloe had with Lucas? OMG, Leslie, I forgot about that going on while EJicole were going at it in the next elevator!
EEW!

Loved the picture of Hopeless shooting up into the air - although Mythbusters pretty much proved if he's standing directly under the shot it wouldn't kill him.

LOL over "That's Kat Von D's work if I ever saw it." and "Was this the same MO as the other muggings?" "No," says Carly "They happened in Salem, not Missouri." HAHAHAHAHA

Prevuze was on a roll this Monday morning. Thanks for the excellent update.

…a washed up old porn star

Gabriella Hernandez! Nicole may be washed up as a porn star, but “old”? Just wait until you're her age. It won't seem "old" at all you little obnoxious whippersnapper.

"I don't know anything," snorts Chloe. "That's pretty common knowledge," says Daniel.

Chloe steams, "I was sure you two went to a hotel and had sleazy sex." Daniel asks, "You mean sleazy sex like you and I were having when we broke up your marriage to Lucas?
"

Prevuze is on a roll this morning. LOL

Daniel assures her, "I would not do that to you and don't know why you think I would.”

Hmmmm, let me refer you to the previous Prevuze comment about cheating with her when she was engaged to someone else.

ROFLMAO: "I think it means Hope has another piece of jewelry for sale and you can buy a pendant with that brand today on HSN."

I also got a big laugh out of Bulldog's separated at birth picture and Hope's latest marksmanship attempt.

One burning question, Prevuze. Where is that tattoo on Brady? I can't tell from the picture.

Ta-ta everyone. Enjoy your Monday!

Watch out for the choker. It'll leave you breathless.

Good thing you are wearing a Kevlar vest.

With Hope's special brand painted on it.

I'm already tired of Phil and Chloe and they've just had monkey sex once.

So the question that raises is, how many times would they have to have monkey sex before you got interested (including flashbacks).

Hope has an uncanny ability to knock out her prey with only a single smack to the head with the butt of her gun. I wonder how much practice it takes to hit a grown man hard enough and in just the correct spot to deliver a concussion each and every time. Someone her size would need a baseball bat to do that much damage, and it might still take a couple of blows to finish off the job.

Hmmm... sounds like the voice of experience speaking.

Phillip encountered no complications unclasping Chloe’s bra.

He has probably read the Guy Manual, which has devoted an entire chapter to the subject. It has three major and very detailed sections devoted to: speed, sensuality and the old standard 'take her by surprise.' The Guy Manual recommends working at all three extensively since, as we all know, practice makes perfect.

although Mythbusters pretty much proved if he's standing directly under the shot it wouldn't kill him.

Salem is in a parallel universe. Einstein's and Mythbuster's theories don't apply.

One burning question, Prevuze. Where is that tattoo on Brady? I can't tell from the picture.

Don't you think it's more fun if I leave it to your imagination?

Prevuze was on a roll this Monday morning.

Prevuze is on a roll this morning. LOL

That's the way I roll.

She shows Roman Brady's new tattoo.

This is why people shouldn't name their kids popular (in their town, anyway) last names. Showing Roman Brady Brady's tattoo?

Yeah, this eppi seems rather skip-worthy to me, but I loved the Prevuze snark about Brady resting his head on Nicole's breasts and asking for a pillow instead. LOL, how true, how true!

And Bulldog, you had me cracking up at the "separated at birth" pic of Mel vs. Primate. How do you find this stuff?

Happy Monday everyone! Let's hope the eppis improve by the end of the week :)

Why they still call Nicole "Nicole Dimera" ?! They got divorced right ?

The Hernandez are so self-righteous, worse than the Brady at their worse day...who are they to judge everybody ?! gggrrrrrrrr

Melanie just wonders what all Chloe's wacko-ness has to do with Phillip.
Aren't they friends??

"Besides that," says Nathan, "I want to go to Paris. But we have to do it in the springtime."
What? They can just fly off to Paris? And the last time Stephanie went to lovely France, she came back with Melanie.

~Jeez it's not like Nicole was HUGE pornstar or anything. I thought she only did a few films, and that was because she was force or something.

"What," asks Nicole, "Is it against the law? Like your sister selling drugs?
Lol. Hernandez hypocrisy.

~So they think Nicole was able to manhandle and beat up Brady? Haha.

Anon, some divorced people decided to stick with their married names. There is no law saying you can't, (not that it matters in DOOL) and this would be a step-up for Nicole.

Steponme is tossing her birth control pills in order to assure she really hooks Nathan.
Oh, lol. Who knew Nathan was that big of a catch. And I'm sure Nathan will be thrilled that he was 'trapped' into a relationship with Stephanie.
