A Bomb Waiting To Go Off

The doorbell at the DiMera mansion rings. It rings again. Again. The postman may only ring twice, but Rafe, with his advanced algebra skills can keep it up all day. Sami opens the door to find him standing there. "It's good to see you," says the Rafester. Sami stares.

Bo tells Hope he'll be at Alice's house later. Hope is happy to hear that. They both see a flower that has fallen off Alice's casket and reach for it together and...

TOUCH!!

Bo remembers her warm caress... her tender kiss... but then he stops thinking of Carly.

Kate sticks the incriminating paper in an envelope, "Madeline I would never have put this in a safe deposit box. The question is, do I tell my husband?"

Madeline walks outside the pub and gets off the phone. She pulls out an envelope, "Thank God they didn't get their hands on this." Chad interrupts and tells her he found out something he's not happy about.

Rafe says he wants to see Sami because of the kids. Sami tells him they are OK, "Damned if I know where they are, through." Rafe tells her he came straight there from the plane. Sami gives him a big hug, "I missed you."

The rose... the touch... Hope tells him, "I'll see you back at the house," and leaves. The loneliness... Bo flashes back to Alice talking to him about Victor being in a coma. She stuffed him with donuts and he opened up to her. That's all it takes with a cop. "Anytime you need someone to talk to," says Alice, "I'll (say it with her) be here for you. For all the Days Of Our Lives."

"The crew back at Alice's place looks at an album. They reminisce about a benefit where Alice played the part of Groucho. Roman pulls Kayla away and asks if she saw Shane, "Do you know where Kim is?"

Kimberly huffs into Bo and Hope's house ranting about Shane. She remembers Alice talking to her about him and then snorts, "Don't you even think about it, Mister!"

Mister Knocks. I guess he's thinking about it. Kimberly answers. Stares.

Sami and Rafe break off the hug. She asks where he's been. Rafe evades. He asks if Stefano and EJ are there.

"No," says Sami, "Why?"

"I need to be alone with you," says Rafe. Translation... Oh, heck, you don't need a translation.

More family album stuff. Hope remembers Alice saving Bo and her — on many occasions, "She always looked out for us." Ciara asks for details. Hope says it was a long time ago but Ciara insists. We flashback to Bo and Hope running out of a wax museum in New Orleans. Alice lets them into an attraction for free. Wow. She saved them all right. I'll bet that attraction cost as much as five bucks. Ciara says she wishes Great Grandma could save them now. Bo and Hope stare at each other. Bo remembers that loving look... their bond... their love... But then he stops thinking about Carly.

Madeline chases Chad into the pub. He says he got a text from Mia, who has left for school. Madeline plays dumb. It's not a stretch. Chad tells her about the dance school. He says he's is upset she left without saying anything. Madeline flashes back to giving Mia the ticket. Chad says he wants to find out what happened. "No," says Maddie.

Kate stands at Alice's grave. She says she didn't think it was her place to come to the service, but Alice is her son's grandmother and she's sorry about a lot of things, "I have a lot of regrets but came to say I'm sorry and to say goodbye sweet lady." Bill joins her.

Back in the kitchen, Laura and Lucas join Maggie and Marie. Laura asks about Bill, but no one has seen him. They take the food outside. Lucas hangs back and Carrie finds him. She tells him she's leaving and he offers his best to Austin. "I mean that, honestly. I Hope he falls off one of the taller Alps so he doesn't linger crushed and broken at the bottom of the abyss suffering in pain."

Carrie says she's sorry the way things turned out for them, "Gran used to say there are no endings."

"Only beginnings," says Lucas, "Except our marriage. That had an ending, for sure... the minute I discovered you and Austin doing the horizontal hula on that rooftop." They hug and say goodbye. So, that conversation lasted longer than their marriage.

Bo watches Kayla and Hope talk. Kayla tells her she can tell Bo and Hope still love each other, and thinks they should get back together.

Hope says, "It's complicated."

"Complicated," asks Kayla.

"Yes," says Hope, "I am right and Bo is wrong. He doesn't get that and that's what complicates it."

Kayla reminds her, "Bo is here and he didn't bring... her."

"I can't think of a better reason to get back together," says Hope, "He comes to one function without bringing his personal sperm bank."

Nathan comes in and announces he found a tape entitled 'Special Day.' The crowd gathers to watch.

Jennifer comes in and says she called Mike at the hospital but there was no answer.

We all watch the 'Special Day' tape. It's Tom and Alice renewing their vows. Tom looks in her eyes and says, “Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go..."

"Cool," says Lucas, "Shakespeare always brings a little class to any family gathering."

"It's from the Bible," says Julie.

Doug says, "For Lucas, that's close enough."


Kimberly says she doesn't want to see Shane. "I need to see you," says Shane. Translation... Oh, heck, you don't need a translation.

Kim totally blows a gasket because he was not (say it with her) there for her when she was sick. She rants on until she practically has a stroke and Shane is able to get a word in. He says he would have (say it with her) been there for her but he was in jail. He tells her the story and Kim softens. He apologizes for letting her down, "But I am here now."

Rafe brings Sami up to date on his adventures with Calliope and Anna, the poisoning and his arrest. He tells her about the escape and says he never found out who was working with Anna, "I came home empty handed."

Sami realizes, "So when you were gone, it was for me."

Carrie invites Bo to come to Switzerland sometime, "Bring Hope."

"I don't think so," says Bo, "She would ruin the trip for Carly." Roman and Bo see her out.

Ciara and Theo sit together coloring. The budding group of Thiaras in the audience just love it, "SQUEEEEEEE!"

Ciara tells him she can't find her treasures, "They were wallets. Maybe mommy took them back. They disappeared the night Mommy was hugging that strange man."

Mommie dearest walks up and lectures Ciara for making things up again.

Baker reads the story of Alice's death and figures out Hope is Alice's granddaughter. He flashes back to their tender moment, "I wonder if we're going back into the mugging business or if she's going after her ex?"

Will helps Maggie in the kitchen and asks about Mia. Maggie says Mia got to New York all right and it was sad talking to her about leaving. "There was no warning," says Will, "She didn't explain why she just up and left."

"You mean beside the explanation she came to the DiMera mansion and specifically gave you?"

"Right," says Will, "Beside that one."


Madeline says she doesn't want to see Chad making a mistake. She insists she wouldn't come between him and Mia and suggests Chad give her some space, "If you were meant to be together she will come back. She's made bad decisions and you were on the top of that list. Don't chase after her." Chad drags himself out.

Maddie drones, "I had to do it." She pulls the incriminating envelope out of her purse and looks at it.

Bill and Kate talk at Alice's grave site. He says he heard her say something about regrets, "Do you want to talk?"

"Thanks," says Kate, "But no one can help me." She leaves.

Hope lectures Ciara. She says she doesn't want her making up more stories. Ciara yells, "I'm not — you never believe me!"

Baker remembers talking to Hopeless about leaving her husband. "No," says Hopeless, "He left me. Bo left me."

"BO," asks Baker, "As in Bo Brady?"

"No," says Hope, "Bo Jackson. He's making a comeback."

"It's not much of a comeback if he's with you," says Baker.


Baker tosses the paper, "The woman is a bomb waiting to go off. Her next victim will be her husband."

Maggie tells everyone they seem to have made it through the day, "It was a good day. A new beginning." Most of the bunch leave. Julie and Jennifer remain and talk about Maggie and Alice.

Roman is with Bo claiming Arianna couldn't be involved in the attacks. "Right," says Bo, "Now that I'm back I'll take a close look at the case."

Mt. St. Hope erupts, "You're not taking this case away from me!"

Kimberly says she didn't realize Shane was in prison. Shane says he couldn't stop thinking about her, "I came back to see if there is a chance for us."

Kimberly ejects herself from the game of stability...

"GO TO HELL!"

Rafe pulls a line out of one of his scripts from six months ago, "I'm not giving up."

"Good luck with that," says Sami. She asks if he knows about Arianna. Rafe knows. He says he's headed over there later. He says he knows the charges are bogus, "Except EJ deserved the bash in the head."

Sami doesn't appreciate that at all, "EJ was really hurt. He could have died."

Rafe asks the critical question, "What's going on with you and EJ, anyway?"

Hope runs off the rails, "You think I'm a screw up, don't you? You think I don't have the chops to solve the case! You don't trust me!"

Bo throws a little gasoline on the fire, "I didn't say that. But you obviously need some help."

Hope becomes totally unglued. "You're overreacting," says Bo. Hope overreacts as Bo explains things. He relates it all to their problems, Mrs. H and the stress Hope is under.

Doug and Julie walk in with Ciara, helping her look for her coloring book. Bo says he has to go, asks Ciara to be good and tells Hope he will talk to her later. Bo goes.

Doug says he and Julie will drive Ciara home and let Hope hang out. Doug bends down, "Ciara Bomberra... I'll race you to the car." The pair head outside, leaving Hope and Julie alone. Julie asks if Hope is OK. Hope insists she's OK and hasn't been taking the pills while she was with Alice, "But I do need sleep."

To sleep... perchance to commit mayhem...

Marie and Maggie say goodbye. Melissa leaves to take Marie to the airport. Maggie picks up a picture of Mickey, "I'll be all right as long as I have you and Alice in my heart."

A nurse discovers Mike missing.

Kate and Madeline meet. Madeline tells her everything from her safe deposit box seems to be in the things Kate returned to her. Kate says, "I'm not really happy, though... after all that's happened."

Sami tells Rafe about the townhouse flood. She says it's fixed, but Sami likes the scenery there at the DiMera mansion, "Everyone seems happy here."

Rafe asks, "You weren't happy at your place?"

"It got kind of lonely."

"So you turned to EJ?"

Sami insists, "Nothing happened!"

"That's what you say," he accuses. Trust... one of the cornerstones of a good relationship.

Hope comes downstairs at Alice's house. She touches things and contemplates. She picks up a picture of Alice, sighs, hugs it and cries. We pan to a picture of Tom and Alice. Hope takes one last look and leaves.

Mike is dressed and looks at a plaque, "'Dedicated to the faithful service of Mrs. Alice Horton.' I'm sorry I messed saying goodbye but I know you are still with me. You haven't left us. you never will. Because this episode seems like it will never end."

Shane says he doesn't understand. Kim augments his understanding with a complete meltdown. Shane begs, "Don't do this."

"You did this," says Kimberly, "You made your choices. I want you out of here. Get out. Get out..."

"GET OUT!!!!!"

"So," asks Shane, "I gather you're asking me to leave?" On his way out, he gives her a parting shot, "This isn't over."

Once the door shuts, Kimberly drones, "Yes it is."

I guess today is National Meltdown Day. It's Sami's turn to have one, "You haven't been here five minutes and you're calling me a liar!"

"You're lying to yourself," says Rafe.

"That's not as bad as spewing cliches," says Sami, "You walked out on me. You don't have a say any more."

"You made your choices," says Rafe, "EJ is the last guy you should be hooking up with."

I AM NOT HOOKING... OMG you're jealous!"

"EJ is just going to hurt you again. I'm not gonna let this happen," he yells. He takes her in his arms and plants a hot kiss on her. Sami plants back. So, Rafe may have come home empty handed, but he seems to have his hands full now.

Well, sorry to say the blockhead has arrived at Sami's doorstep. Wow, I can barely wait until he plants a "hot" kiss on her. I imaging he is one of those guys who sticks his tongue halfway down your throat until you gag-EWWWWWWW!! No thank you!! Rafe could do "hot" if he was sitting on a campfire.......

So Sami is not good enough for him, but too good for EJ.

Prevuze I almost thought you were quoting Shakesphere, I was impressed. "To die, to sleep; To sleep: perchance to dream."

Poor Ciara, she will be on Jerry Springer soon.

Prevuze the romantic is followed closely by Prevuze the snarkillectual!! LOL!!!!!!!!

"Madeline I would never have put this in a safe deposit box.”

Safe deposit boxes are usually – ahem – safe. On the other hand, when Stefano has a key, you might find yourself in deep doodoo.

Rafe tells her he came straight there from the plane.

Question #1 – how did Rafe know that Sami was camping out at the mansion? Question #2 – why is Rafe so concerned about Sami’s children? Question #3 – why isn’t Rafe more concerned about Arianna being in jail? Rafe has two sisters in Salem. Silly me, I thought he would have visited them first.

Chad says he wants to find out what happened. "No," says Maddie.

…and just how does Maddie plan to stop him? For gosh sakes, teachers can’t keep students from texting in classrooms. Unless Maddie confiscates Chad’s phone and computer, there is no way she can keep him from communicating with Mia.

"I need to see you," says Shane. Translation... Oh, heck, you don't need a translation.

On the commercial airliner, Rafe and Shane must have been sharing dramatic readings of the Guy Manual. OK, Shane’s readings were dramatic.

He tells her about the escape…

…on a commercial airliner. No, I can’t let that one go. It’s just too bleeping ridiculous.

"Right," says Bo, "Now that I'm back I'll take a close look at the case."

Mt. St. Hope erupts, "You're not taking this case away from me!"

This is a perfect example of why family members should never work together.

She says it's fixed, but Sami likes the scenery there at the DiMera mansion.

Either Sami is fond of the topiary in the formal garden or the wet bathing suit contests in the heated indoor pool.

Great censored link!! TGIF and TGFP!!!!

Oh, I was quoting him all right, but whenever I do that I always feel compelled to make a few... improvements.

why isn’t Rafe more concerned about Arianna being in jail

They did mention Rafe tried to call Arianna but said something like she had used up her phone time allotment for the day. Going to see her would have been a possibility but, lets face it: however remote, there is always the possibility of rumpusing in the rumpus room.

The flashbacks with Alice seem good, i hope some of these vet folks will stay a bit..it seems Marie leaves in this epi and Carrie too (hey she doesn't say goodbye to her sister ?! weird..)

We will have a contived reunion between Shane and Kim and major angst between Bo and Hope...i love these characters but come on it is so lazy writing..

The rest is a big joke.
That is all.

Today's episode and Prevuze report were endless. The endless episode = bad. The endless Prevuze snark = freaking funny! To list just a few of my favorite "snarkillectual" (thanks for that, Leslie) moments:

The postman may only ring twice, but Rafe, with his advanced algebra skills can keep it up all day. (A great literary & filmography reference there, btw)

"Yes," says Hope, "I am right and Bo is wrong. He doesn't get that and that's what complicates it."

"I don't think so," says Bo, "She would ruin the trip for Carly." (Came darned close to a spit take on that one.)

”Because this episode seems like it will never end." (I was thinking the same thing several scenes ago. LOL)

Your long-lost ex-husband shows up and your first reaction is:

Kimberly says she doesn't want to see Shane.

HUH?! Wouldn't you want to know where he'd been? Wouldn't you want to rip him a new one? THEN tell him you didn't want to see him?

The exodus of former characters begin. Adieu Melissa, Marie, Bill. Farewell, Mike.

I've got to stop thinking about Carly now and get back to work. Thanks for the break, Prevuze.

Poor Ciara, she will be on Jerry Springer soon. LOL, Berg! He could host an entire episode on the kids of Salem with screwed up parents. Joining Ciara would be Will, Chad, Johnny, Allie, Sydney, Claire, Theo, Danloe's future kid and Grace (when she returns as a teenager from wherever Stefano has her stashed).

"No," says Hope, "Bo Jackson. He's making a comeback." Is that in football or baseball? ;)

Here was my 'HUH?' moment for the day: (Madeline) pulls out an envelope, "Thank God they didn't get their hands on this." It was in one of those yellow envelopes with a gold fastener, it wasn't glued shut. So they couldn't have opened it, looked at it, copied it, studied it, analyzed it, had it carbon dated at the McDNA lab and then put it back in there??

Loved They hug and say goodbye. So, that conversation lasted longer than their marriage. and "You mean beside the explanation she came to the DiMera mansion and specifically gave you?"

Thanks, Prevuze, for getting us to Friday. Have a great one everyone.

Wow. Bulldog - Best memory on the Internet.®

I actually attended Bo Jackson's very first major league game. It was a bigger circus than any World Cup soccer game ever, only without the vuvuzelas. Before the game started I sat there listening to the pre-game hype on the radio. No exaggeration, those announcers had Bo Jackson being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame before he ever swung at the first pitch. My point being, there was far more pimiping and hyping of Bo Jackson back than than we are in any way seeing with EJ and Rafe. All he did in that game was get an infield single. And when he did you would have thought he hit a grand slam home run and ran the bases doing a handstand. He had the crowd and the media in the palm of his and then went and spoiled it all by playing football as a "hobby."

Rafe tells her he came straight there from the plane.
Yeah, ok, I'm sure Rafe could have seen Ariana had he wanted to. He can leave the country at will and perform arrests without any authority, so getting into Salam jail would have been a snap.

Chad says he wants to find out what happened.
Mia has shown on several occasions that she cannot be trusted. I would have simply assumed she lied to me and let it go. At least for a little while.

"I have a lot of regrets but came to say I'm sorry and to say goodbye sweet lady."
And her small heart grew three sizes right then and there.

Ciara yells, "I'm not — you never believe me!"
Well, that's because you're a liar!

No one has mentioned another one of my favorite prevuisms today - Lucas hoping for "the best" for Austin - an instant death after falling off a cliff rather than lingering in anguish at the base of it. HA

Great censored link Prevuze...guys recently out of prison are always horny! LOL!!!

I think Sami made it pretty clear that she wats to keep her distance from EJ... but since Rafe seems to want to fix things with Sami perhaps he should get his chance. Maybe Sami and Rafe can spice up the romance on this show and bring us some much needed summer heat!

Rafe is the MOST romantic guy, and Sami LOVES to play games! Over the years Sami & Rafe have created a lot of bedroom games. One of their favorites is called "how much I love thee..." and it goes something like this: Rafe usually starts it off by saying "Do you know how much I love you today?"...to which Sami usually giggles like a school girl and says "no, tell me...". So, Rafe says "today, I love you more than all the colored pigment on the wings of the butterflies in the world"..."I can top that" says Sami, "I love you more than all the rain drops that fall in a year's time in the Amazon forests". "Ok" says Rafe, "I love you more than all the Oxygen molecules in the world"...to which Sami replies "I'll up the Oxigen with with all the Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Carbon molecules in the world, and I've got you beat!" They usually go on and on until one of them finally capitulates and says "ok, ok! on top of all that, I love you more today than all the love my heart can hold"...to which the other replies "whatever your heart can hold, my heart can hold more"...

So Rafe, are you ready to bring it back in 2010???

Rafe and Sami spicing up the romance department? Bwah ha ha ha ha.

Has everyone forgotten Bo Jackson sold candy bars, too?

Frustrated, not only would he stick his tongue down her throat she probably have to get a kleenex and wipe her face off, too.
