Never Postpone Kicking Butt

Bo and Carly practically turn the hospital elevator area into an X-rated stage as Hope watches and covers her face. Carly suggests taking the afternoon off. Bo says he will make Mai Tais tonight instead. They share a smoochie-bye.

Carly goes to work. So does Hope. She descends on Carly like the charge of the Light Brigade. Carly senses the attack, "Can I help you?"

"I think it's the other way around," says Hope.

Justin and Adrienne are at the pub discussing the level of Hope's screwedupedness. Justin thinks Adrienne is more screwed up.

Chad is also at the pub and finds Kate at a table. He says he has questions about his mom and her past.

EJ is in the bedroom on the phone with Arianna. He asks where Nicole is.

The aforementioned Nicole is downstairs at the door telling Sami EJ has done something and she needs to know what it is. Sami blows her hair-trigger stack.

Johnny comes into the room with EJ, "Daddy, this puzzle won't work."

KABLOOIE!!

EJ has a meltdown, "THIS PIECE GOES HERE AND THIS PIECE GOES HERE! CAN'T YOU FIGURE THAT OUT?"

Sami continues her tirade. She refuses to listen to Nicole and threatens to call the cops.

Carly doesn't want to talk. Hope does. That settles that. They talk. Hope says she still cares about Bo, "He is still my husband. He's the commissioner and his PDAs with you won't play out well with some people. Bo and I share a 25 year history together. Any one of the Hortons could have walked in and seen that. How do you think that would play out? You want this to be a great love story but it's not. If you love him think about what you are doing to his life."

Bo walks up behind them, "Hope, we need to have a little talk."

Brady in the Kiriakis mansion talking on the phone with Melanie. Victor watches as Brady tells her it's over with Arianna.

EJ apologizes to cowering Johnny, "Would you like to go away? And have some fun?"

"I sure would," says Johnny, "As long as it's not with you."

Nicole says she is there because Sami needs to know the truth. EJ interrupts, "What the hell are you doing here?"

Bo and Hope have gone off to talk privately. He chides her for yelling at Carly. She chides him for mauling her in public. "So," says Bo, "we're gonna pretend this is about propriety."

"Propriety is one thing," says Hope, "Producing 'Carly does Salem' right there in front of everyone in the hospital is another. But you're right, I'm just a grasping neurotic woman who needs to get on with it."

Bo reminds her, "The divorce was your idea."

Hope asks, "You think that was what I wanted?"

"Don't you," asks Bo.

Justin don' wanna talk about it. "That's because you're afraid I'm right," says Adrienne. She leaves.

Justin drones, "You're wrong Adrienne. You have to be."

Kate doesn't understand why Chad wants to talk. He says he heard something. Kate lectures, "Part of growing up is finding out your parents aren't perfect."

"Why aren't you friends now," he asks.

"We went our separate ways," says Kate, "My experience is if you want to know something about someone it's always a good practice to go to that person directly." She books.

Madeline and Charles are at a picnic table drinking champagne. Charles toasts her pending appointment as appellate judge, "Are you ready for the bruising nomination process? Are there skeletons in your closet dear?" She gets a call. Kate tells her she has a big problem.

Bo asks if a divorce is their only option. Hope gasps, "You're sleeping with Carly. In our bed. In my bed."

Bo reminds her, "I begged you not to leave."

"And I blew it," whines Hope, "You're blameless and I'm not being facetious." Bo asks if he's supposed to live alone because she can't figure things out. Hope says she wants to be happy, then goes sarcastic, "You're absolved and from now on I'll be as sweet as pie to Carly. We're done with this conversation."

Nicole tells EJ he can't stop her. Sami says she won't listen no matter what Nicole has to say. She turns to EJ, "Please take out the trash." She leaves.

Nicole tells EJ if anything happens to her the tape goes public. EJ orders her to keep it down as Nicole continues to make threats. Nicole gives him a parting shot, "I will enjoy seeing you sweat. See you around. Enjoy your freedom while it lasts."

Kate tells Madeline about her conversation with Chad. The blood drains from Madeline's face and she says she will handle it. She gets off the phone and tells Charles a plea bargain went south. "You're leaving right now," asks Charles.

"Never postpone kicking butt," says Madeline.

Charles watches as she walks away, "Madeline, the mask slipped. Something or someone just scared you."

Victor comes in. Brady says, "So, you overheard that and now you're marshaling all your energies to keep from gloating." Victor says he doesn't like seeing Brady hurt. He invites him to talk. Brady don' wanna. Victor says he Hopes he finds someone who makes him happy.

Brady asks, "The way grandma made you happy? Bite me. I love you, too." Victor leaves. Brady calls Nicole and tells her to forget his last message, "It wasn't all that important." Brady gets off the phone and hears the doorbell. He answers to find... of course... Nicole.

EJ joins Sami in the rumpus room. Sami wants to know what that was all about, "She has something on you."

"If you really think that," asks EJ, "Why didn't you just let Nicole tell you what it is?"

"I'd rather hear you tell me."

Brady doesn't want to talk about it. He wants to talk about Nicole's scoop instead. He thinks it's about EJ. Nicole says she has something on him. "Good," says Brady, "I need an outlet for my aggression and EJ fits the bill. So why don't you tell me what you've got on him and we'll take him down together."

EJ decides it will be good to get things off his chest. He says he's ashamed of something he's done. He stammers, "The flooding you had... in your townhouse... wasn't exactly an accident."

"I see where this was going," says Sherlock.

"I asked father's help and he made sure it was uninhabitable," says EJ.

Sami gets it, "You were determined to make sure I stayed here."

"I'm sorry."

"You're probably not," says Sami, "but you should be."

EJ says he did it because he couldn't bear the idea she and the kids wouldn't be there. Sami starts to blow up and then decides it's funny, "What am I gonna do with you?" They giggle about it and he brings up the trip again. He says the pilot is waiting for them to leave tonight. He offers to have someone pack for her. Sami makes excuses about why she can't go.

"Stop being negative Nellie," says EJ.

Suddenly, the fun stops, "EJ what's really going on?"

Carly is with Bo. She figures things didn't go well with Hope. Bo says, "Hope is playing mind games."

"Then she must not be playing with you," says Carly.

"It's not like her," says Bo, "Hope doesn't play mind games. Or she didn't. I don't know who she is any more."

Hope paces in her bedroom, and then pops a pill.

Sami wonders why they have to leave Salem just because Nicole is freaking out, "A beach in Monaco isn't my idea of family time."

"I don't care if we go to a kibbutz," says EJ. Sami says she doesn't want Nicole to think they are intimidated. EJ wants to know if this is about Rafe.

Adrienne shows up at Bo and Hope's house to return an item. She says that was just an excuse, "We need to have a little talk. I hate sticking my nose in..." So she sticks her nose in. "I'm worried about Hope."

Nicole wants Brady to promise to stay cool when she tells him what she has to say. Nicole imagines how it might go down, "EJ... is the one who got Anna to kidnap Sydney. I have him admitting it on tape."

Brady is shocked, "So when everyone thought Sydney was dead, he knew she was alive." Brady's head explodes, "HE'S DEAD!"

Nicole pops back to (ahem) reality as Brady asks, "Tell me exactly what you have on EJ."

Victor is at the pub. Justin joins him, "Are we getting along these days?"

"As long as you behave," says Victor.

"Which means as long as I stay away from Hope."

"And they say you can't learn," says Victor.

Justin says he's worried about Hope. He wonders if she's in serious trouble. Victor thinks she's fine, "She just needs to be left alone by you."

Hope is in bed, "It's time." She gets up.

BULLETIN! Shawn Douglas Brady has been arrested for theft at a Paris fish market because he heard today was Bass-steal Day.

Chad meets Mad at the pier. She says, "We need to have a little talk. The nominating process I'm about to go through will put us all in a fishbowl. You have to start learning to be discreet. People will lie about me."

Chad doesn't buy it, "Kate called you, didn't she?"

Kate bumps into Charles at the court. She tells him she has known Madeline forever and he should be proud of her nomination, "We need to have a little talk."

Brady again asks what Nicole has on EJ. Nicole imagines a new scenario, "I have proof EJ kidnapped Sydney." Brady doesn't buy it. Any of it. He turns the tables on her and says he thinks she's just trying to manipulate him because EJ claims to have proof she framed Arianna.

Nicole decides things might go like that and says, "I don't think I can tell you for your own good. And mine."

Adrienne tells Bo about Hope and Justin kissing, "And then she acted like nothing happened."

Hopeless and Carly bump into one another as they walk outside.

Kate says she is concerned about compromising Madeline's chances of becoming an appellate judge and she wonders if their past friendship will do that. Charles thinks Kate overestimates her own importance. He leaves.

Kate says, "How surprising. He's absolutely clueless. Par for the course for a guy in Salem. If he wasn't the one who talked to Chad, who was?"

Madeline evades, "Now see here..."

Chad interrupts, "What? You've never said crap like that before. You're scared I know the truth. That you were a whore." The guy sure has a diplomatic way of putting things, doesn't he?

Sami says this has nothing to do with Rafe. She gets snippy, "Go ahead. Go on your getaway. Find a topless beach in Monaco. You're a good looking, sexy, rich bachelor. Have a good time. Or stay here with me." She turns on her heel and walks out.

EJ makes a call, "Marco... get me Nicole. NOW."

Nicole says it's way past time for her to start acting like a grownup, "I am not going to drag you into my mess." Translation: "Can you please help me with my mess?" Brady says if she's going after DiMera she needs his help.

"You can't trust me," whines Nicole. Translation: "I hope you're dumb enough to trust me."

"I think I can trust you," says Brady. Translation: I'm way more than dumb enough."

"That means everything to me," says Nicole. Translation: "SUCKER!"

Brady asks, "So what do you have on EJ?"

So let's recap. In this episode, Bo asked for a little talk with Hope, Adrienne wanted a little talk with Bo, Madeline asked for a little talk with Chad and Kate wanted to have a little talk with Charles. If those talks were so little, how come this episode seemed to drag on forever?

I was surprised that by the end of this Friday's episode of DOOL that Maddie would be killed. Chad will be full of guilt because she was running after him when she trips and falls to her death. She had admitted to him that she use to be a call girl.

Maddie was about to become an Appellate Judge with a call girl past. Wouldn't that have been interesting? How many prostitutes have actually gone on to become a judge? Makes one wonder, huh?

Why couldn't the writers just end some of their other storylines this fast?

Now of course, we will have to learn that Chad is Stefano's biological son. Stefano will become suspicious after he hears of Maddie's death.

Maddie must have been pregnant with Stefano's baby, then went away and left her baby at an orphanage. Then when Maddie and Charles got married, she finagled it so they could adopt her own baby. Sounds like Sami's story with Grace.

I personally wish the writers would just get the debacle with Chloe/Daniel/Phillip/Melanie over with. We don't need another who's the daddy storyline, yet we seem to have two going on right now.

Bo's coffee gets some of Hope's sleeping pills mixed into it. Then Hope covers Bo's body with gasoline and fully intends to set him on fire. Luckily, Daniel comes at just the right time and finds Bo unconscious and takes him to the hospital and saves him. Guess who comes to visit Bo in the hospital? Right, Hope.

Baker tries to get some romance going with Hope. Now that would be a totally odd couple! No chemistry there at all.

Bo also decides to begin to investigate Hope. The clues are adding up now so it's high time someone starts investigating Hope.

"Sami... turns to EJ, 'Please take out the trash.'"...YES, please!!!

Hope told Bo that they're "done with this conversation."...but that doesn't mean it's not painful for her, that there are no lingering unresolved feelings. What kind of person would she be if she would just walk away from one guy only to turn to another for comfort? That's not who she is! She would only be hurting the other guy, because she wouldn't be able to reciprocate his feelings, until she sorts out her own. Is that what you want?

"I don't care if we go to a kibbutz"...ok with me, but there's got to be running water and something to eat :)

Justin and Adrienne are at the pub discussing the level of Hope's screwedupedness.

Excellent use of the English – make that - Prevuze language and ever so descriptive.

“He's the commissioner and his PDAs with you won't play out well with some people.”

What do you know? I agree with Hope. PDAs are obnoxious especially when the participants are sticking their tongues down each others’ throats.

"So," says Bo, "we're gonna pretend this is about propriety."

"Propriety is one thing," says Hope, "Producing 'Carly does Salem' right there in front of everyone in the hospital is another.”

Prevuze gets a standing ovation.

"Are you ready for the bruising nomination process? Are there skeletons in your closet dear?"

Charles doesn’t know he’s married to a certifiable former ho? Oh my!!

"You're sleeping with Carly. In our bed. In my bed."

Here’s hoping they changed the sheets.

"A beach in Monaco isn't my idea of family time."

…and having a picnic on the beach of polluted Lake Salem is? Last night, I watched yesterday’s episode. Along with Brady’s half-nekkid body, I made it a point to pay enough attention to what was happening to hear the background sound of the water lapping against the shore, and Melanie referred to the body of water as a lake. Since Salem has piers and docks, the lake has to be large enough to support shipping. With the Chicago area references that keep tumbling off the pens of the writers, it seems reasonable that Salem is located along the shores of Lake Michigan. When the waters are really rough, there are nut jobs surfing on the lake. Anyway, this is DOOL, so Salem could be sitting along the Caspian Sea.

"You can't trust me," whines Nicole. Translation: "I hope you're dumb enough to trust me."

"I think I can trust you," says Brady. Translation: I'm way more than dumb enough."

"That means everything to me," says Nicole. Translation: "SUCKER!"

Neither Sami nor Brady is buying what Nicole is selling. EJ has already told her that her tape is not admissible in court, and he would just deny he had the conversation. Considering their acrimonious relationship, it would be easy to convince people that Nicole is trying to frame EJ. Who would believe EJ kidnapped his own daughter? Now Marco has been summoned to drag Nicole into EJ’s presence. If Marco can grab Nicole, he can just as easily “neutralize” her. Only in the deluded minds of the DOOL writers would Nicole have the upper hand on EJ. This scenario has more holes than ten pounds of Lorraine Swiss.

Great censored link Prevuze, and happy hump day everyone!!!

She refuses to listen to Nicole

Don’t try talking to the woman, just turn on the recorder and let it play for pete’s sake.

I'm just a grasping neurotic woman who needs to get on with it."

I realize Hope probably said this dripping in sarcasm. But, damn, if she’d been in a therapy session the shrink would have praised it as a breakthrough. LOL

Again, a gaggle of great gags with the pictures. Bulldog, are those the bottom-feeding garbage fish, gar? Prevuze, the censored link had one of your best t-shirts ever. Not as great as the classic "I see stupid people", but still great.

And, of course, thanks for the update on the adventures of Shawn & Belle. Bass-steal Day indeed!

Ej JUST KILL NICOLE ! Not hard or at least Stefano (if he was in character) would already did it ! And if Ej was written like before (remember 2007...) Nicole would have been tortured, brainswashed and dead a long time ago !! lol Right now she is annoying because she is really really smug. She reminds me of Lucas in his bad day when he wanted to reveal Sami's schemes..he was so full of himself at this time just like her whereas they are not better. And Ari Zucker (who is a good actress) has some Bryan Dattilo mannerisms, don't you think ? They really look alike in their acting, but Ari is a better actress and Bryan is more funny, playful. My opinion always.
Writers we know you want the story to be dragged on for many many months..but this Nicole puppet master is ridiculous and quickly tiring..

I have it on good authority they will. According to unconfirmed spoilers, the arrival of Chloe's first Social Security check prompts her to reflect on life and she reveals everything to Daniel. Of course it's something she says at his gravesite since the much older Daniel has long since passed.

Hope covers Bo's body with gasoline and fully intends to set him on fire.

I know down deep Hope wants Bo to continue to have the hots for her, but that's taking things a bit too far.

What kind of person would she be if she would just walk away from one guy only to turn to another for comfort?

A Hope Brady kind of person? With the guy being a Patrick kind of person?

Who would believe EJ kidnapped his own daughter?

Careful. This is Salem. If you haven't kidnapped your own child it wrecks your chances for the Parent of the Year Award.

Hope was difficult to read today. She followed that one up by saying she wasn't being facetious, then followed up again by being very facetious. So maybe when she said she wasn't being facetious she was being... facetious.

Anonymous(es)by the end of this Friday's episode of DOOL Maddie would be killed and Hope covers Bo's body with gasoline and you know this how? Are these random thoughts or true spoilers?

Applecheeks - yes, those are Gar. Aren't they icky?

Sami starts to blow up and then decides it's funny, "What am I gonna do with you?" They giggle about it... How adult. In the meantime, the people in the apartment below the Penthouse are still sopping up the complete loss that was their home and belongings with no rich dude to pay for their repairs. What is this, an episode of Joanie Loves Chachi?

Great censored link (as always) and the Shawn update. Great mid-week Prevuze, Prevuze. Thanks! :D

wait..so when sami was besties with nicole, and everyone warned her about it, she wouldn't listen. and now that she's besties with ej, and everyone is trying to warn her about it..she still won't listen. perhaps one day, sami will learn that whatever decisions she makes are the wrong ones. doubtful, but here's hoping.

thought the censored link was funny but I'm glad Molly hasn't felt the pressure to get her some store bought boobs, like some others on days have.

I kinda admire that. She's relying on talent and not boobs to get ahead.

Speaking or store bought, I wish they'd put an end to this WTD storyline already.
