Throwing In The Romantic Towel

Kayla shows up at Bo and Hope's house. They talk about Alice and then Kayla says she has a surprise for Bo. She drags him outside to meet Kimberly, who thanks Bo for all he did to for her during her recent illness.

Rafe sits on a plane. Shane joins him. Rafe looks up, "Shane Donovan. What the hell are you doing here?"

"I'm on a mission," says Shane, "The ISA wants to know why the hell every question on this show has the word 'hell' in it."

"That's a hell of a good question," says Rafe.


Roman finds Carrie in the pub. He tells her the FBI folks are in town because her mommy has been a bad girl, "It's better if I find her because if someone else does..."

Sami interrupts, "She will answer to me."

Hope is in the kitchen. Her dad comes in for a Doug-hug.

Bill is with Maggie in her kitchen. Maggie gets upset because she thinks he's there for "Maggie maintenance."

Allie sits on the counter holding a bag of MSG-laced granola that you're supposed to think is good for you. Sami comes up to her and the sleazy product placement pitch gets into full swing, "Natural Valley Twigs and Nuts. Tastes like cardboard and only 800 calories per serving." Sami sends Allie up to her grandmother, "But first throw that bag of candy disguised as a health snack in the garbage."

Carrie tells Roman she and Sami have patched things up. "Wow," says Roman, "A lifetime of animosity wiped out in a five-minute conversation. I'm sure that'll last."

Sami jumps in and goes on a one-woman nuclear meltdown over Anna, "When I find her I'm gonna make sure she pays for what she did."

Lucas joins Kate in the rumpus room. They decide the family won't be the same without Alice. Kate says, "She never seemed to have a need for some of the things others do, like money and power. Or love... she had plenty of that. All she ever lacked was a family with half an ounce of sense."

Jennifer gets off the phone with the reverend. She says the rev and gran planned her service together. Julie cries, "Good for her. She never backed off a difficult subject."

Julie remembers Alice telling her the court might decide against her in her custody battle with Scott Banning. If he wins custody, Julie says she isn't sure she could go on without her son.

Julie thinks heaven is a brighter happier place today, "It's certainly cleaner and better organized."

Hope and Doug continue to hug. Doug wishes he could comfort her like her mother used to. He tells her Alice told him when Addie died that death was only a transition. In Salem it's only a little delay before you come back. They decide Alice will live on in their hearts. Hope just wishes she had told her how sorry she is she let her down. More hugs and tears.

Rafe asks what the future holds for Shane. Shane says the ISA told him something has happened to his family. He has to investigate that before he decides what to do next.

Kimberly says things have been tough since her divorce. Bo asks, "So you haven't heard form him?"

Kimberly says, "He dropped off the face of the earth."

"Well then," says Bo, "Maybe he's in Salem. It's not the face of the earth. It's more like the armpit."

Kate tells Lucas he's doing a good job for Hearth and Home in Hong Kong. Lucas says he isn't sure he should be trucking Allie all over the world. Kate thinks it's a great opportunity for her. She thinks Sami and EJ living there together are overcompensating and completely focused on Sydney and Johnny.

Lucas asks, "What about Will?"

Will walks in, "Yeah, what about me?"

Roman leaves the pub to go talk to Bo. Sami apologizes for teeing off about Anna. Carrie says she deserves it. Sami says, "I'm no paragon of virtue but..."

Carrie interrupts, "We talked about that last night."

Carrie says she and Austin are happy and then Sami tells her about Rafe, "I drove him away."

"Are you sure," asks Carrie, "There is no hope?"

"No," says Sami, "I have no one to blame but myself. But I'll keep looking until I find someone."

Maggie thinks Bill, Laura and Marie are hovering, "Yesterday, Marie took out the garbage for me and while she was out there, she washed my car."

"Marie is a nun," says Bill, "That's what nuns do." Well, we can see it's been a while since Bill has been to church.

Maggie says, "Losing Mickey was like losing a part of myself... the part that's never home. I'm making it and it bother me that all of you show up and act like I'm disabled. You and Marie lost your mother. You should be taking care of yourselves. I'm fine."

Bill asks, "If you are, how come you didn't tell anyone your Myasthenia Gravis came back."

"I was saving it as a surprise."

Doug and Hope are on the park bench. She talks about losing Bo. Doug says Alice told him she felt eventually Hope and Bo would get back together. Hope reminds him Bo is shacking up with Carly.

"Alice said her money was on you and Bo," says Doug.

That perks her up, "Money? You mean there was a will?"

Lucas says they were talking about business. Kate pipes in, "He's thinking about running Hearth and Home (into the ground) form Hong Kong." Lucas says he wants to stay in Hong Kong for good but will come back and visit from time to time.

Will explodes, "How could you make the decision to move away without talking to any of us?"

Lucas asks, "Didn't you make the decision to move into the DiMera mansion without talking to anyone?"

Carrie says, "I can't believe Sami Brady is throwing in the romantic towel."

Sami says it's out of her hands now, "Rafe didn't want to be nailed down. He just wanted to nail me. I lied to him after all he had done for me." Carrie thinks Rafe sounds like a guy who would be understanding. Sami thinks he's not coming back.

Rafe wonders what happened to Shane's family. Shane says he can't tell until he's sure it's true. He opes he's not too late.

Kimberly is worried about Shane, "He has children. Who the hell does he think he is."

Roman pops in, "That's a good question." Roman has a keen ability to recognize good questions. It's the answers that seem to evade him.

Bill is still on the "let's take care of Maggie" train. He says they are worried about her. Maggie insists she's fine. Bill plays the 'Alice' card, "Mom didn't think so."

Maggie gasps, "What?"

"The last time I spoke with her she begged me to look after you," says Bill.

"She was always worried about everyone," says Maggie.

Bill double-trumps her with the 'Mickey' card, "Mickey asked me to do the same thing."

Abe shows up at the Hortons and expresses his condolences. He, Jennifer and Julie share a group hug. Abe remembers how Alice took the Carvers under her wing, even when they tried to arrest her. That calls for a flashback... Abe has Alice in custody for a suspected felony. Alice says, "If you have proof, arrest me."

"She was one tough lady," says Abe.

"She had to be," says Julie, "She lived with us."

Doug and Hope are back in the kitchen. Doug wonders if she's giving up on Bo. He's not above playing the 'Alice' card himself, "She always thought you and Bo belonged together." Doug leaves.

Hope has a flashback to Alice giving her earrings for her wedding. One of them anyway. Alice tells her she saved them for her marriage with Bo, not that scoundrel Larry Welsh. Hope picks up a "Best Grandma Ever" cup and cries.

Will backpedals and says he came off too strong. Lucas understands. He tells Will the door is always open in Hong Kong, "You can stay as long as you want, as long as it's not with me. I mean, would you rather live with Stefano?"

"Let's see," says Will, "A mansion with servants, a swimming pool and everything you could ever want vs. a Hong Kong hovel. That's a tough decision, but I don't want to leave school, and I have my mom, my friends and Sydney here." Kate clears her throat. "And Grandma," says Will. Kate leaves.

Lucas apologizes for twisting Will's arm, but says he thinks the living arrangements in the DiMera mansion are strange. Will says everyone has been nice and they have even been polite to Sami, "EJ has been really decent to her."

"Now I'm really scared," says Lucas.

Sami thinks Rafe is gone for good, "We probably had one of those knock your socks off passionate connections that can't last."

"Maybe if you would have let him take something off besides your socks, he would still be with you," says Carrie.

Sami says the feelings are not gone, and when Rafe realized she lied, she expected him to get angry, but he was calm instead, "The lie changed everything and I don't think we can ever get it back."

Rafe says he isn't sure what he will find when he gets back to Salem. Shane informs him Alice died. The big questions is who informed Shane? Rafe says he didn't know her, but feels like he did. "She was no pushover," says Shane.

Bo says he was just about to call Carly. Kayla gasps, "She's not going to the funeral is she?"

"No," says Bo, "You don't approve of the relationship, do you?"

"Let's see," says Kayla, "A married man living with a woman who popped a kid after a drunken one-night-stand and later killed her husband. It doesn't exactly sound like a match made in heaven."

Maggie thinks Mickey asking Bill to look after her is sweet, but she says she can take care of herself. "He said you would say that," says Bill, "He had your number." Maggie continues to insist she's OK. Bill says he made a promise to his brother and he has to live up to it. Maggie hugs him and says she can deal with that. "You're stuck with me," says Bill, "Until I leave town in a couple days and never see you again."

Jennifer finds Hope looking at the Grandma cup. They talk about Alice and how much they miss her. Hope also can't believe she's going to the funeral today without Bo by her side.

Bo tells Kayla to suspend judgment. Kayla judges and yells at him. Bo recaps the situation, "I fell in love and that changed everything."

"You mean Carly went down as easy as a two-foot putt and that changed everything," says Kayla.

Carrie asks how EJ fits into all this. "He's been great," says Sami, "He's (say it with her) been there for me. Let's not talk about it any more."

Carrie says, "I know why you want to change the subject."

"Right," says Sami, "We're talking about Rafe and talking bout EJ is uncomfortable."

"Exactly," says Carrie, "Is it possible you love both these guys?" Sami chokes.

Julie joins Doug. She gives him a Bible Alice had with her when she died. Maggie and Jennifer join them and Doug finds something Alice has written inside. He reads...

"And as long as this family gathers together to touch and share and laugh and remember, and as long as our hearts and arms are open to new friends, new loves, then we have everything a human being can hope for in this life. Everything. And it never ends."

Well now,
Do you suppose the paper Kate found in the deposit box was a birth certificate for Chad implying that Stefano is the Daddy? And that he really isn't. It is just one of Madeline's tricks to blackmail or control Stefano if the need arises.
Just a thought.

Ugh, Hero Rafe is on his way back to Salem. Picture the reunion between him and Sami with EJ being chopped liver yet again.

Doesnt' anyone on this show have any balls?

"Natural Valley Twigs and Nuts. Tastes like cardboard and only 800 calories per serving."...hmm...surely you meant to say it tastes like crap and only 800 calories per serving.

Oh goodie! The Rafester is on his way back to Salem!(sarcasm) I guess now we'll have the motherload of neanderthal stares and the Sami wine-a-thon's to look forward to...

Loved the censored link...yeah, the world cup events definitely bring out the sluts in droves.

"Sami says it's out of her hands now, 'Rafe didn't want to be nailed down. He just wanted to nail me.'"...lol funny! If I have to see another Sami/Rafe "sexy reunion" moment I'm gonna barf!!!

"Exactly," says Carrie, "Is it possible you love both these guys?"...it is possible...

Ahhhhhh...loved the last comment! Brought a tear to my eye...I guess it explains why we tune in to watch this drivel on a daily basis. The power of television to bring joy and hope into our homes :)

What bugs me it is that Sami loves a guy because of the things he does for her not because of him as a person..you know for his personality, character...it is just sad..

"That's a hell of a good question," says Rafe.

I also have a hell of a lot of questions to ask. How the hell did both Rafe and Shane allude whatever passes for the law in the banana republic without an extradition treaty? How the hell were they able to board a commercial airliner? Why the hell weren’t the authorities checking the airlines' manifests? Hasn’t anyone the hell heard of no fly lists? If Shane and Rafe’s names weren't on the list, does that mean they each have a hell of a great fake passport? What about photo IDs from hell? How the hell did Rafe and Shane score seats together? Why the hell did the hotel concierge print out boarding passes for them? Why the hell isn’t Rafe flying to the FBI head quarters to be debriefed? What the hell?!! Rafe is going back to Salem. Hell!!!

"But first throw that bag of candy disguised as a health snack in the garbage."

Bring Allie a Happy Meal instead.

Kimberly says, "He dropped off the face of the earth."

"Well then," says Bo, "Maybe he's in Salem. It's not the face of the earth. It's more like the armpit."

It appears that both Shane and Rafe will be landing in that armpit shortly.

"Rafe didn't want to be nailed down. He just wanted to nail me.”

Now that I’ve mopped up the water I spit all over it my monitor is bright and shiny!

Shane informs him Alice died. The big questions is who informed Shane?

This is the sort of thing that just makes me nuts. If Shane is aware of Alice’s death, how can Stefano NOT be aware that the two Bozos are jetting off to Salem?

"No," says Bo, "You don't approve of the relationship, do you?"

"Let's see," says Kayla, "A married man living with a woman who popped a kid after a drunken one-night-stand and later killed her husband. It doesn't exactly sound like a match made in heaven."

Bo = Stupid Questions R Us

Lucas is making a permanent move to Hong Kong, taking Allie with him, and leaving Will behind to live in a mansion populated by the nefarious DiMeras. Sounds like a really convenient way to get rid of Allie. What about the custody arrangement Lucas has with Sami? For a change, Sami has a real reason to go nuclear.

Super censored link Prevuze! Have a hell of a great day everyone!!!

Oh Leslie, you KNOW better than to ask all those questions about Rafe and Shane!! This is the Rafester-he can do anything-move mountains, defy the law, and have "knock your socks off passion"!! Come on-let's ALL join the endless Rafe-pimping.......

My poor, gorgeous, sexy EJ-about to become second fiddle to the Neanderthal yet again....if only I could be there to pick up the pieces.

I do not think Lucas will take Allie, no way Sami would let him do that. Then again, there is always Skype...lol

Here’s a HUH?! moment:

Doug wishes he could comfort her like her mother used to.

Addie was killed when she pushed the baby buggy holding a practically newborn Hope out of the way of a speeding car. Addie sure didn’t have a lot of time with Hope for the girl to experience much comforting from her.

”…Who the hell does he think he is."

And there’s that pesky “hell” in a question again. LOL

Shane informs him Alice died. The big questions is who informed Shane?

Well, earlier in the show Shane tells Rafe the ISA told him something was going on with his family that he needed to check out. (I assumed this was about Alice.) That he wasn't going to say anything until he knew for sure. (OK then.) But then he goes ahead and tells Rafe Alice had died?? What the HELL?

As for plunking a product placement into the show with grieving family members is just cheesy. What the HELL is next? A placard on Alice's coffin during the funeral reading "Donated By Youloseem & Westuffem Funeral Home"?

Loved Bulldog's 1-800-nutjobs caption and the censored link. BTW, Prevuze, I have to congratulate you on the stunningly sharp pictures being posted lately. WOWZA!

Only Corday thinks that Rafe is more entertaining than EJ. That says a lot about why DAYS sucks so badly.

Looks like ANOTHER snoozer of a day.

Off to Kroger's to buy more batteries for the remote.

Maggie Mae - there are still Kroger's around?? They've been gone from my town for decades now.

Anyway, here's something that always bugs me about DOOL - someone handing down a beloved item when you'd think they would've been given out before now. Like Alice giving Nathan Tom's medical bag. Why hadn't she given it to Bill? How'd she know there'd even be another doctor in the family? Or some necklace or earrings handed down right when a wedding is about to begin and they should've been handed down about two generations earlier.

Tastes like cardboard and only 800 calories per serving. Come on, Prevuze, tell us how you really feel about granola. HAHAHA

Jennifer gets off the phone with the reverend. She says the rev and gran planned her service together. Wouldn't it be Father Matt or some other priest? Or do they refer to priests as reverends? I didn't think so but what do I know?

LOL over "You're stuck with me," says Bill,"Until I leave town in a couple days and never see you again." and the censored link.

Thanks for the update, Prevuze. :D

I loved Alice's last note. It didn't fit with all the things people were saying she said, though. Maybe she really thinks Bo and Hope will get back together, eventually, but that doesn't mean they all have to treat Carly and Bo like dirt in the meantime?

Still, she could have said something about old friends and old loves.

I wish Bo would be allowed to explain himself--in other words, I wish he were able to tell people what a vicious hose-beast Hope was up until the second he decided to move on with someone else. Then of course, she was ready to get back together. Hopefully these issues are addressed before the two inevitably reunite, but I have a feeling it will all be swept under the rug, like the fact that Patrick had to have been Ciara's biological father.
