The Queen Of Bad Choices

Brady paces in the Kiriakis mansion den talking on the phone with Fred. He says it will feel great to get justice for Arianna. Nicole listens. As Brady ends the call, Nicole walks in, "I hate to ask for payback for what I did for you, but..."

"No problem," says Brady, "What you did for me was worth it. You scraped me off a pier."

EJ is with Arianna in her cell. Arianna says she's a wreck and EJ tells her he's there to help. Arianna is near panic, "I need to get out of here!"

Will answers the door at the DiMera mansion to find Carrie standing there, "Aunt Carrie! Or should I call you 'Mom' since you were my step mom for about five minutes? "

Sami walks into the foyer, "Carrie!"

"Sami..."

At least they recognize each other. That's a start.

Carly busts into the wedding in Chloe's room. Daniel asks why she is there. "This time," says Chloe, "I'm going to say what I came to say."

Chloe revs up the whine-o-matic, "No, please don't."

Carrie meets Sydney . Sami asks why Carrie is there. She tells Sami she's there because Alice isn't doing well. Sami says she meant she wanted to know why Carrie is at the DiMera mansion. Carrie turns to Will and asks to speak to Sami alone. Will leaves and Carrie turns back to Sami. Carrie brought the smaller travel version of the whine-o-matic, "I'm sorry."

Chloe begs Carly to keep her yap shut.

"I have to say this now," says Carly. Chloe tries to but in again.

Daniel interrupts Chloe's interruption, "Let her speak."

"Stop defending her," screams Chloe, "You have no idea." In Daniel's case, Idea = Clue.

"No idea about what," asks Daniel. Anything.

EJ tells Arianna the arraignment has been rescheduled for tomorrow. Arianna is somewhat relieved and asks if he thinks the judge will grant bail. EJ isn't sure, "But Nicole is behind this and I am definitely going to prove it."

Arianna asks, "How? "

"Traces of foam rubber have been found at the scene of the muggings," says EJ."

Nicole tells Brady she thinks she's going to lose her job. She says she missed a broadcast when Brady was in the hospital, and begs him to give her some kind of story about Titan. Brady suggests a piece on the muggings, "You know Arianna is innocent."

Jennifer and Maggie are in the Horton kitchen. Jennifer worries because she hasn't heard from Mike.

Carrie says, "My mother kidnapped your daughter. Can you forgive me?"

"No," says Sami.

Crestfallen Carrie sighs, "I understand."

"I can't forgive you," says Sami, "Because there is nothing to forgive. If anyone is responsible besides Anna it's me."

Chloe insists Carly never wanted them to get married.

Daniel asks, "What makes you think that?"

Daniel's question prompts Chloe to have yet another fleshback to her romp with Phillip, "Carly doesn't think I'm good enough for you."

"That's ridiculous," says Daniel, "A promiscuous slut like you is exactly what an indiscriminate horn-dog like me deserves." He turns to Carly, "You didn't say something that insane did you?"

Lexie walks into a room at the hospital and finds Mike in bed there. Mike sees her come in and asks, "What am I doing here?"

Nicole says the producer put a moratorium on covering muggings.

"That's news," says Brady, "Why would a producer put a moratorium on that?"

"So the local news anchor team can do what the rest of them do, which is giggle and talk about the weather between the never-ending commercials."


Brady says he'll talk to people and get all the manpower Nicole needs to exonerate Arianna.

Madeline is in Maggie's kitchen with Mia. Madeline says, "I'm disappointed in Chad, and I'm worried you might ruin his life — again."

Sami beats herself up, "I'm the queen of bad choices. I had sex with EJ and lied about his child and that's why Nicole could take her. Carrie says she knows family is what it's all about. Sami says too much has happened between them to mend fences, "You'll never be able to forgive me."

Carrie asks, "You mean for what's happened between us or for this hackneyed dialogue?"

Carly asks to speak to Chloe and Daniel in private. Phillip wants to know if ruining one marriage isn't enough for her. Daniel says they can speak privately, but, by gum, then there will be a wedding.

Lexie tells Mike he was in an accident. Mike says he has to go see Alice, now.

EJ tells Arianna he needs more time, "Nicole is feeling the pressure and will make a mistake."

Nicole says she can't work miracles. She's not sure more manpower will do the trick. Brady vows not to give up on Arianna. Nicole wonders, "Why is it that Arianna doesn't realize you are a wonderful person."

"Because she knows how I really am," says Brady, "So you might as well know Arianna and I are through."

Nicole snaps her fingers, "Drat the bad luck!"

Mia reminds Madeline Chad and her had a baby together, "He will go to college and be fine so don't threaten me."

Madeline pulls out a piece of paper, "You think I'm threatening you? Read this. It's a letter from the High School for the Performing Arts."

"As in Fame," asks Mia.

"That's right," says Madeline, "Being in the movie Fame really helped its reputation. Being on DOOL will kill it." Madeline says she knows a friend on the board and recommended Mia, "Classes begin in July. Your housing has been arranged as well as a generous living stipend."

Let's see, the opportunity of a lifetime vs. staying in Salem to chase after a dimwitted adolescent... Mia, of course, turns it down.

Carrie says she's done some pretty horrible things herself, "There were the tings I did to Austin, Mike, Lucas... and you."

Sami continues to beat up on herself, "But I deserved it." Carrie remembers Horton Christmases and that greatest of all rites of passage, getting her Horton Christmas bulb. She remembers how Alice would correct Sami and her when they did something wrong, but only because she loved them. We have a flashback to Carrie talking to Alice about skin grafts for her face. Alice reassures her, "It's a radical new procedure Dr. Tom developed to treat acne."

Carrie whines, "Sami, I'm sorry for everything that has gone wrong between us."

Sami recawhineulates, "I'm sorry, too." The girls cry and hug. The audience reaches for the barf bags.

Carly says she got the results from the panel of tests they ran on Chloe after her accident, "Chloe, you're pregnant."

Show note: Subtitles now appear on your screen to translate Chloe's Whine-Latin into English.

Chloe protests, "But I can't get pregnant. How did this happen?"

"Apparently," says Carly, "Elevators are all about reproduction."

Daniel turns to Chloe, "If you are carrying our baby this is truly a miracle."

"It's a miracle if it's not Phillip's baby," says Chloe.

Brady suggests Nicole do a tribute to Alice Horton as her feature.

Nicole turns on the cynicism, "Ah, yes the Hortons. The family that lived the dream life we never had."

"Someday..."

Nicole is like a St. Louis Rams running back. She wouldn't recognize an opening if they rolled out the red carpet and provided a limousine to drive through it, "Ah yes, someday. See you soon." She leaves.

Madeline gives Mia a plane ticket for tonight. Mia says she promised Maggie she would stay until she graduates. Madeline encourages Mia to follow her dreams.

Jennifer and Maggie continue to worry about Mike. Lexie calls Jennifer.

Daniel says he will call Dr. White for a sonogram. He apologizes to Carly for getting upset because of her interruption, and goes to track down the justice of the peace.

Carly says she's sorry about the timing. Chloe says Carly knows she isn't pregnant, "Just when I thought I couldn't hate you more... you are pure evil. If I have another hysterical pregnancy it's because you've driven me into a state of hysteria." You wouldn't need a GPS for that short little drive. "When things fall apart, Daniel will crash and and you will be there to comfort him."

Madeline suggests Mia tell Maggie she has to go live her dream. Mia agrees to go to New York.

Carrie comes in to see Mike. Mike tells her about the wreck — now he knows all about everything that happened when he couldn't even remember it before. "Ironic, isn't it" asks Mike, "Here I am trying to get to Alice, and now I'm here in bed talking to you."

Carrie smiles, "Ironic. And awkward."

"Let's try again," says Mike, "It's nice to see you, Carrie."

Phillip and Melanie are at the pub. Phillip wonders what Carly is up to.

Hank points his video camera at Nicole outside the pub. Nicole starts her piece on Alice. She talks about the family matriarch whom everyone loves and she considers a friend.

EJ walks up, "Alice Horton didn't love you."

Nicole goes apoplectic. She swipes her hand across her neck...

"CUT!"

Chloe tells Daniel she knows she's not pregnant. Daniel assures her they will find out for sure and everything will be OK, "Just think, if this is true, it would be the most amazing thing ever."

"Figuring out who the father is would be even more amazing," says Chloe.

Brady comes to see Arianna. She says she should have believed him. He asks what changed her mind. "Thinking," says Arianna.

"No," says Brady, "I meant what changed your mind that you are capable of?" Arianna says she could never doubt him again. Until tomorrow's thrilling episode.

Mia shows up at the DiMera mansion. She tells Will she's going to New York to study dance. He congratulates her. She says it was hard saying goodbye to Maggie and now she has to thank both Will and Sami, who stands there with Sydney and listens in.

Jennifer rushes into Mike's room. Carrie says it was good to see him and leaves. Mike tells Jennifer he's fine. Jennifer says this is his fault because she told him to hurry. He asks her to get him out of there. She says she'll try but first leaves to inform Bill and Laura.

Nicole tells Hank to take five. EJ says Alice isn't dead yet.

"I'm celebrating her life," says Nicole, "Who made you the decency police?" They argue. Nicole gets sarcastic, "What? Things with Sami not working out? I can't imagine. A platonic living situation with a woman you hate. You seem a little tense. I can tell when you're not getting any... let's call it... satisfaction."

"Oh," says EJ, "I'm quite sure I haven't had as many lovers as you. And now you have your beady little eyes on Brady Black. It's not going to happen. Emasculating a man you love isn't a good idea."

Nicole gets defensive, "I didn't attack him. What about 'innocent until proven guilty?'"

"The SPD outlawed it," says EJ, "Arianna is innocent and I will prove it by sending you up the river."

"Really," snaps Nicole, "So put up or shut up."

Carly performs the sonogram. Unless Chloe has been pregnant longer than we think, I hope she's using an electron microscope. Daniel thanks her for doing this.

Mia and Will talk about old times. She's grateful to Will for his help. She tells Sami she's happy she found Sydney and says she'll miss them all, "Even if you won't miss me." She certainly has the confidence to make it in the Big Apple, doesn't she?

Sami tells Mia about having a kid when she was a kid, "Will was the only thing I ever did right." She says Mia is doing what she has to do to get her life back on track. Tracks — isn't that where train wrecks happen? Mia says goodbye and leaves.

Sami asks if Will is going to miss her. Will grunts, "Yeah..." hugs.

Brady says he's glad Arianna finally decided to believe him, "I'm not counting on EJ to get you out of here. When I find out who is responsible they're going down."

EJ asks if Nicole is covering the arraignment, "I think shortly the person in the news won't be Arianna."

Melanie worries because Daniel hasn't called yet, "Back in the hospital room, Chloe seemed freaked out and you didn't look happy either."

Phillip says, "I was just hoping the wedding would happen without any problems." He decides his salad needs more dressing and gets up to get it. That's what I love about this show... the complex plot twists.

Lexie comes into Mike's room and tells him he can't leave yet. Mike argues, "If I don't get out of here it may be too late to see Alice."

Jennifer walks into the Horton home yelling for people. As she passes out of camera range, Maggie comes down the stairs crying. Jennifer see her and says, "Something has happened I need to go..."

Maggie interrupts, "Yes, something has happened. Alice just died."

Tears. We pan in on a picture of Alice and Tom.

Carly flips the switches on the machine in front of her, "I'm a little rusty, but we have our answer."

Daniel looks at the screen and turns to Chloe, "Look! In a few months, we're going to have a baby. You and me and baby makes three. And Phillip makes four."

Ok it is like that Mia is out of the show ?! Seriously ? It is so lame !!
Come on they could have set up a murder storyline for Pete's sake, they have no teen stories for this summer ...dumb dumb dumb they really want their show to be cancelled..every of the other soaps have teens stories for the summer (and i don't even like teens soaps stories but i know it has impact on ratings).

The Chloe is pregnant...what a surprise here we come WHO IS THE DADDY storyline..so exiting...

The Arianna/Ej/Brady/Nicole story is freaking boring : WE JUST DON'T CARE IF ARIANNA IS IN JAIL...We don't care about Arianna.period.
And Nicole stop being delusional it is freaking pathetic ah and Ej why does he care anyway ? Totally out of character he should be involved in the Maddie/Stefano storyline not wasting his time with this freaking lame triangle..so contrived so contrived and dumb.

I don't know what to think about the Carrie/Sami convo : in one hand i am glad to see them mature, in a good rapport but one the other hand i want my Sami bitch to come back..the good Brady is not her role..can they keep Carrie and bring us back the bitchy, black sheep Samantha Brady and built up a frenemy relationship between the Brady sisters : take notes writers THIS IS WHAT I WANT !!

Little screen-time for the Hortons today..instead we have the Nicole show and the Chloe/Daniel stupid story..writers you are some LOSERS.

Sami asks why Carrie is there.

That’s an excellent question. If I’ve got my family trees sorted out, I don’t believe Carrie is related to Alice.

Carrie turns to Will and asks to speak to Sami alone.

OK, so this isn’t about Alice. It’s about Sami. I thought the reason that Salem was being repopulated with veterans was to pay tribute to Alice. I guess I was wrong.

"You have no idea." In Daniel's case, Idea = Clue.

"No idea about what," asks Daniel. Anything.

The brilliant doctor has morphed into a world class dumb ass. Such is life in Salem. Sigh.

"Carly doesn't think I'm good enough for you."

"That's ridiculous," says Daniel, "A promiscuous slut like you is exactly what an indiscriminate horn-dog like me deserves."

Isn’t that the truth?! LOL!!!!!

"You'll never be able to forgive me."

Carrie asks, "You mean for what's happened between us of for this hackneyed dialogue?"

My vote is for “hackneyed dialogue”.

Let's see, the opportunity of a lifetime vs. staying in Salem to chase after a dimwitted adolescent... Mia, of course, turns it down.

Oh the drama! Oh the angst! Oh the stupidity!

Sami recawhineulates, "I'm sorry, too." The girls cry and hug. The audience reaches for the barf bags.

…and the daytime Emmy for best use of inspired vocabulary goes to PREVUZE!!!!

"If you are carrying our baby this is truly a miracle."

"It's a miracle if it's not Phillip's baby," says Chloe.

If there was an Emmy for recycled scripts, DOOL would be the hands down winner.

“In a few months, we're going to have a baby. You and me and baby makes three. And Phillip makes four."

Alice just died, and DOOL ends the show with this drivel. It figures.

Word verification - bichbra. That's what Chloe uses to keep the girls corralled. Thanks for the superior update Prevuze!

A few years ago when they had the whole Shawn-Belle-Phillip-Mimi thing going on, they said that Phillip had a low sperm count or something and that's part of the reason they figured out that Claire was not his kid. I guess Phillip got some other new parts along with his new face, if he can instantly impregnante Chloe, who supposedly can't get pregnant.

We don't necessarily need a scheming Sami back, but a strong Sami is definitely needed. She needs to find out what EJ did so the mama bear in her can come out, I can't wait for that!!!

Brady paces in the Kiriakis mansion den talking on the phone with Fred.

My first thought was…Fred Frump? Has Fred turned up security footage from his ever-vigilant post that will clear Ari?

"Traces of foam rubber have been found at the scene of the muggings," says EJ."

LOL – But I don’t believe that for a moment. It implies the SPD actually does any competent forensic investigations.

Carrie asks, "You mean for what's happened between us or for this hackneyed dialogue?"

Forgive them both, heavenly Father, for it’s not their fault DOOL writers pen hopelessly sappy scripts.

recawhineulates

What a fantabulous, new Prevuze word. Love it. But what a s/l cop-out. Given their history it would have been a lot more interesting if they had been cooly polite with a soupçon of snark. Should the character of Carrie ever be brought back to provide some needed conflict, this whole whinelatious episode will have to either be forgotten or written off as an aberrant reaction because of Alice’s condition.

Unless Chloe has been pregnant longer than we think, I hope she's using an electron microscope.

Double LOL. When has medical reality ever stopped this show from ridiculous medical s/l's?

Great stuff today - Salem's ONSA Chapter and Philip not having a leg to stand on.

I'm shocked that no SL Rams' fan has taken Prevuze to task for that illegal-blow-below-the-belt comment. Maybe they are all laying low? hehehe

Kinda hard to enter my word verification when it doesn't show up. Wonder how many times I'll need to guess before I hit it?

I agree with Applecheek's comment the other day - if Mike hadn't stalled around just getting there from Boston maybe he would've seen Alice before she died. And wouldn't it have been more fitting to just end with the picture of Tom and Alice and not go back to that Danloe crap everyone's sick of? Geez writers!!

I won't have a leg to stand on." Groaner!! HAHAHAHA

Great new term for the Prevuze dictionary: recawhineulates.

My biggest laugh today came from this: "So the local news anchor team can do what the rest of them do, which is giggle and talk about the weather between the never-ending commercials." Is the Prevuze compound in my town?? Because this describes them perfectly. Although you forgot the time also spent on idiotic "human interest" stories instead of news...like the story our crack action news team did about a dad going fishing with his kid.

Thanks for the excellent recap and pictures today.

In my book we need a SCHEMING Sami back; she can scheme and be more mature..it is called layered characters..sadly these writers are not enough talented for it..and almost the only times she is still feisty it is with Ej so yeah i want her to discover the truth but i also want her to spar with him after that. Not being a pod Sami with a boring good guy : NO THANKS !

Ah and Alice is dying...sad..the end of a era actually..

I'm sure after a 1-15 record last season, the Rams fans are too embarrassed to speak up.

Prevuze will take this opportunity for the public service reminder that we are a mere 7 weeks away from the first preseason game. And yet, it seems like summer just started.

That's for darned sure. Frances Reid had a life time job with DOOL, and that was pretty much the norm for soap stars portraying beloved characters. It was guaranteed employment. I'm sure Deidra and Drake expected to ride off into the sunset with DOOL. How things have changed.

~I am the baby's daddy. Let this storyline end.

Carrie says, "My mother kidnapped your daughter. Can you forgive me?"
Oh, the conversations family members have on this show.

"I'm disappointed in Chad, and I'm worried you might ruin his life — again."
Because Mia got herself pregnant in the back of Chad's car.

Madeline gives Mia a plane ticket for tonight.
If only she bought one for Chloe.

Daniel looks at the screen and turns to Chloe, "Look! In a few months, we're going to have a baby.
Wait. How long ago was Chloe's debraification? A few months??

~I assumed the teen storyline would be the grooming of Will and/or Chad and some crap with Gabi.

~Honestly, I never liked 'black sheep' Sami. The only reason she a black sheep is because they treated her like crap.

LOL at Phillip's pic...if Melanie files for divorce he "won't have a leg to stand on". Did they ever say which leg he's supposed to be missing? I forget...

"Carrie brought the smaller travel version of the whine-o-matic" Geez, I remember the days when she had the real whine-o-matic turned on full sound! What a nightmare!...esp. when Sami got caught sleeping with Austin! I think that was about the time I was in college and I had a dial control TV! Now THAT's torture!!!

"No idea about what," asks Daniel...Exactly! Daniel honey, stop missing your MENSA meetings!!

"Traces of foam rubber have been found at the scene of the muggings," says EJ."...HISterical! I laughed so hard, I scared off the dogs!!! Prevuze you are too much!!!

"Carly says...'Chloe, you're pregnant.'"...Oh, here we go, 2010the summer of "who da daddy" drama!!! If you're planning to watch DOOL this summer make sure you have your FF button handy at ALL times!!!

Um...I have a completely novel idea. What if the timing says Daniel is 100% sure to be the dad. And Mia is murdered as she leaves town.
