Videos And Prozac

I've pretty much had it with our little satellite issue, but it seems this thing is going to drag on longer than a DOOL buried-alive plot. So here's the latest...

We've had volunteers — really great people who have stepped forward to help with the issue, but for one reason or another things haven't worked out.

Right now we're working with someone who is ready, willing and able to help but so far the technology we're working with is un-ready, un-willing and... you get the idea. I'm hopeful this one will work out, but it's too early to tell.

And... uh... well... this has to remain a secret just between you and me... OK? No one else is to know. I've been receiving the Canadian day-ahead video for a couple weeks now. That's right. I've been getting a crystal-clear copy of the Canadian broadcast — I've been getting exactly what I'm asking for and I didn't tell you. It's my fault... I feel so guilty for keeping a secret from you... I don't know if I can live with myself...

What? You don't believe me? Well... For your information, I have proof. Video proof... just like Arianna. Hmmm... I hope that doesn't mean I'm about to lose a battle with a 2010 Hummer and become the next menu item at the Roadkill Cafe. Still don't believe me? Well, take a look at this — Monday's previews for the Tuesday US broadcast...

OH, CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME FOR KEEPING THIS SECRET FROM YOU? I did it... I did it for you. I did it to protect you. I did it to protect you and the ones I love. See, the person who is sending me the videos can't do it on a regular basis. So if I had started posting the day-ahead recaps, then when they stopped coming I would only have had to rip them away from you — and ripped your heart out along with them. And mine, too. OH, GOD, I LIED TO YOU! HOW CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? HOW CAN I FORGIVE MYSELF?

Wait... wait... don't walk away from me. It was just a couple of shows. It meant nothing. It was the pills... yes, the pills made me do it. I didn't know what I was doing... I... uh... I THOUGHT IT WAS YOU! I THOUGHT IT WAS YOU SENDING ME THE VIDEOS! PLEASE! I'M BEGGING... GIVE ME ANOTHER CHANCE! I'll make it up to you. I'll do anything you want. I'll even lie for you. I'll write recaps that say your favorite couple is together and living in bliss even when they hate each other. I'll say [insert the name of the DOOL character of your choice] is intelligent. I'll even say the writing is good. Oh, sob God snivel I've sniff hit whine the bawl bottom wail of sob the cry barrel! Waaahhhhhhhhhhhh...

So, please... Canada... I need you to (say it with me) be there for me. We're good together. And that unfortunate "54°40' or fight" thing... that was just a little dust-up. Don't bring that up. The past should remain in the past. It is what it is. I just need... I just...


And Prozac, eh?

Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

We start out today's episode back in the park, where Kinzie has brought Sydney for another round with Nicole. Nicole gushes, oohs, aahs and greets her.

Bo comes into the pub and joins Kayla. Kay wants to talk about Carly. I'm sure that thrills Bo to no end.

Carly arrives at Maggie's and wants to talk to Melanie. Melanie wants her to leave.

Nathan and Stephanie are off from the hospital but still playing doctor as they bounce around on the couch. Nathan says he has something important to do before Kayla and L'il Joe leave. One thing he ought to do is find L'il Joe, since no one has seen him. As Stephanie goes to get her coat, Phillip arrives asking for her. Phillip tells Nathan about Arianna's death. Nathan starts to call and console Melanie but Phillip forbids it.

EJ reads about Arianna's death on the Internet and remembers talking to her when she was in the hospital.

Sami arrives at Arianna's apartment and goes in. she remembers Arianna showing her the "proof" and starts ransacking, "Let's trash this place!"

Melanie wants Carly to go. No go on the go. Carly comes in, "I'm (say it with her) here for you if you want to talk." Melanie don' wanna talk. So what do they do? They talk. Carly says Arianna's death should make Melanie realize they should love and cherish each other while they can. Melanie wants to love and cherish those whom she loves and cherishes, however, and that would not include Carly.

Kayla lectures Bo about his Carlyvorting, "Do you really know who Carly is now? What she is capable of?" Bo tells Kayla exactly what Carly is capable of. Kayla blushes.

Sami, on the other hand, is capable of trashing a room. She gets a call from Will. She says she's at Arianna's but hasn't found anything. She says she hates doing this but that's not about to stop her. She hangs up and goes back to work. Suddenly, she stops, "OMG!"

Nicole says she's happy to see Sydney. Kinzie starts to take Sydney to the playground, but winces in pain. She tells Nicole she has hurt her arm, so Nicole takes over the duty of lugging Sydney over to the playground.

Melanie says Carly wouldn't have told Daniel even if it weren't his baby. Carly begs to differ. Melanie asks if Bo knows about Chloe's indiscretions. Carly cries. "I guess not," says Melanie.

Kayla says she thinks Bo could never abandon Hope. I wouldn't be so sure. Right above the entrance to Bo and Hope's house is a sign that says, "Abandon Hope all ye who enter here." Bo says he won't abandon her, but she has to accept the reality that Carly is his future.

"That's where you are wrong," says Kayla.

Sami has found some sort of box and hunts for a way to open it. She flings the door open and...


Phillip thinks Nathan has done enough damage since he made Melanie lie to her own father. Stephanie comes out and tells Phillip this isn't Nathan's fault.

Carly says, "I know I've kept things from Bo... and You... and Daniel... Everything I've done was in the interest of protecting the people I love."

"Dang," says Melanie, "I'd hate to see what you'd do for the people you hate. Why have you done those things — because you feel guilty for what you did when I was born?"


Well, let's hope that settles it Carly runs out. Melanie bawls.

Bo says he's tired of the lectures, but not tired of the reason for the lectures. He insists his future is with Carly, "But I will do what I can to support and help Hope. She will always be a part of my life, my heart, my child support payments, so please, don't diminish that." He gets a call and leaves. Kayla stews.

EJ leans against the doorjamb with a smirk and plays the part of the cat that ate the canary. Sami says she was there for a rosary. EJ pushes her inside the room.

Nicole tells Sydney she has pictures of her on her nightstand, "I miss you so much, Munchkin." Suddenly, Kinzie and Caroline walk up.


Melanie imagines what will happen when Daniel finds out about Chloe cheating. She imagines he accuses her of holding the truth back and letting him marry Chloe. He walks out on her as she begs him not to.

Carly sits on the park bench as Kayla walks up. Kayla says she's leaving tonight. "What a shame," says Carly.

Poor choice of words around Kayla. Speaking of shame," says Miss Holier Than Thou, "You should be."

EJ asks where the rosary is, and why the room is tossed. Sami starts to leave. EJ blocks her way and they fight. Sami's purse spills and EJ sees the mystery box.

Stephanie lectures Phillip for lecturing Nathan, "All we want is for Daniel and Chloe to be happy. Nothing else matters. Are we good here?"

"Yeah," grumbles Phillip. He leaves.

Stephanie screeches. Nathan tries to calm her down, "There is a lot more to say."

Kayla wonders how Carly lives with herself. Carly says she knows this is more about Bo and Hope than it is about her. She reminds Kayla they were apart before she got involved with Bo. Carly stomps off.

Caroline asks Kinzie to take the baby home. Kinzie insists Nicole tricked her. Nicole tells Caroline she's blowing this out of proportion. Caroline tells her never to touch Sydney again.

Phillip arrives back at Maggie's and asks Melanie what's wrong. "You mean besides my best friend dying," says Melanie, "Carly came by." Melanie says she doesn't need Carly trying to make everything right, "Arianna had the biggest heart of anyone I've ever known but I wondered what if she had regrets. I was thinking about how my mom has lied to me since I met her. What if you have regrets at the last moment of your life? I'm not having regrets but..." She stops short and then comes out of left field, "Are you supposed to be at work? You should go back. I want to be alone for a while." Hugs.

EJ rattles the box. Sami says it's a box with the rosary inside. She goes to grab the box back and they start fighting again. They wrestle, fall on the bed and use it for a trampoline." Out in the Ejami section, hearts flutter. They roll off the end of the bed and race to get to the box. EJ asks where the rosary is as Sami grabs the box and runs out. EJ hangs back and reminisces, "Whew! That's the most action I've gotten on a bed since I was married to Nicole."

Daniel comes in and hugs Melanie, "Lexie told me about Arianna. It's horrible." Melanie cries and says, "Nothing makes sense." That's something you hear a lot from Melanie. She says she should have spent more time with Arianna. In fact, half of Salem wishes she had been running across the street with Arianna.

"You spent a lot of time with her and shouldn't worry about the fact you didn't spend more. After all, her life was tragic enough." he says he tried to reach Chloe but she wasn't answering her phone. Daniel tries to comfort Melanie and says he knows it's been painful, "I just wish I had been (say it with him) there for you."

"No," says Melanie, "You are always (say it with her) there for me. It's about time someone was (say it with her) there for you." After that exchange I'm not sure who is (say it with me) there for whom.

Kayla arrives back at the pub and finds Caroline, who tells her about the Nicole and Sydney incident. Caroline says she has to have a little chat with Kinzie and there will be no more babysitting for her, "I'll keep her at the pub, though, because it looks like I'm the only one left who can watch Sami's kids." She thinks Sami will go ballistic if she finds out Nicole was holding her daughter. Of course Sami would go ballistic if she found out the sun came up this morning.

Kayla says she's going crazy, "I'm about to destroy Bo's life and there is no way around it."

"What," asks Caroline, "Did you figure out a way to get Hope out of jail?"

Bo meets Carly at the pier. He senses something is wrong. Carly having a complete mental breakdown in front of him tipped him off.

Nicole stares at a picture of Sydney as Chloe comes up. They share big hugs and Chloe tells her about the honeymoon.

So, let's recap. Daniel and Chloe get back from their honeymoon and Chloe just wanders off into the woods alone and stumbles on Nicole. Maybe she was practicing to go off into the woods and have her kid like they do in some cultures considered to be primitive. Although, let's face it, there is no culture primitive enough to assimilate Chloe.

Nicole says, "I'm glad you're happy. And now I know what it will take to make me happy — Sydney."

Nathan says, "I have to do this now."

"Do what," asks Stephanie.

Chloe reminds Nicole Sydney isn't her child. Brilliant observation, for Chloe. Nicole promises to give up that line of stinkin' thinkin' and tires to change the subject and talk about Chloe's baby. Chloe says she knows she should be happy but Melanie is dangerous and could destroy her life.

Kayla says, "What I am about to tell you has to remain between us."

"Of course," says Caroline, "I'll just paraphrase it when I tell everyone else in town."

Kayla whispers, "Daniel might not be the father of Chloe's baby, even though there was a paternity test that proves he is." Caroline thinks that makes no sense and she wonders why it would ruin Bo's life. Kayla says she thinks the results were switched, "Carly switched the results. And given what Bo has gone through with Hope, when this comes to light, it could ruin Bo emotionally."

"How can you ruin something that's already ruined," asks Caroline. Kayla swears she has to tell Bo.

Caroline begs her not to, "Besides, I thought you said this has to remain between us."

"Don't you dare confront me with facts," snorts Kayla.

Nathan takes Stephanie's hands, "I'm so lucky to have you in my life. You're amazing. You are my first thought in the morning and my last thought at night. And then I puke." He takes a knee, in fact he supports it on his unread copy of the Guy Manual, "Stephanie Johnson, will you marry me."

Stephanie beams, "I can't believe it. I actually snagged a guy with two legs."

Nathan and Stephanie plan to marry for better or worse. She couldn't do better, he couldn't do worse.

Carly asks how Kayla seemed when Bo saw her. Bo thinks she was tense. Carly says Kayla will never accept them as a couple. Oh, she'll accept them as a couple, all right. A couple of adulterers.

Caroline insists Carly didn't switch the results. "How could you know that," asks Kayla.

Daniel and Melanie continue to argue about who should (say it with them) be there for whom. Finally, Melanie wails, "I have to tell you the truth about everything." Vegas odds are about a billion to one that 'everything' will include the truth about Chloe, so don't bet the house.

Nicole says, "Melanie made her decision. She won't tell Daniel about your little infidelity."

Chloe says she can't control that but Nicole can control the Sydney thing, "You have to let it go."

Nicole gets upset and tells her to go away, "You don't get it. Sydney will always be a part of me. Call me crazy and deluded and judge me but..."

Chloe judges, "You are crazy and deluded."

"I swear I will get her back," says Nicole.

"I was wrong," says Chloe, "You are completely crazy and deluded."

Back in Arianna's room, EJ decides Sami didn't do a good enough job of trashing it, so he finishes the job, "Where is it? Arianna, what have you got?" Rigor mortis.

Sami arrives back at the Hernandez Hovel. Will greets her, "So EJ just showed up at Arianna's place?"

"How did you know that," asks Sami.

"You called and told me when you were on the way over here," says Will, "Don't you remember that?"

"No," says Sami, "That's how frazzled I am." She tells him she found nothing in Arianna's room.

Will asks, "What if it doesn't matter. Maybe the person who has it didn't watch the video, or lost the camera?" Sami sighs.

A pair of hands goes through mail. The same hands shuffle through a couple of CDs, and then pick up Arianna's video camera. One can never tell, but the coat attached to the hands seems to have the same gaudy brass buttons as Bo's Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band coat.


Kayla asks Caroline, "So why don't you just tell me? Why are you lying to me?"

Melanie tells Daniel, "I've ruined everything."

Kate snarls, "Prepare to burn in hell, Vivian." Vivian screams, "Oh, no!"

The Cojones Have Skipped A Generation

Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

Vivian lies in-sarcophago and curses Kate for taking so long to get to the mausoleum from the Kiriakis mansion, "My God, there is a defenseless woman in here... TEMPUS FUGIT!"

Kate busts in, listening to Vivian on her bluetooth, "My God would you put a sock in it! You're not the only one in the world with problems you know. I, for example have to deal with the rare disorder hair blueificitis."

"Thank God you're here," gasps Vivian, "Now, I'll tell you how to get me out."

"Get you out," asks Kate, "What in the world would make you think I would want to get you out?" Vivian whimpers.

Victor is in the Kiriakis den with Bastardregard. Bo tells him Brady was at the hospital but left before Arianna passed away. Victor announces Brady is back with Nicole and is worried he might start using again, "Damn drugs."

"You're right," says Bo, "Damn drugs." Victor says that wasn't meant to be a slight about Hope. He asks if Bo has been to see Hope lately. Bo says yes and Victor says he thinks that's good. "I'm not so sure she thinks it's good," says Bo.

Meanwhile, back in the prison infirmary, Hope putters around until Leigh comes in. Hope says she wants to ask about April, who died from the appendectomy. Leigh plays dumb. It's not a stretch. She asks Hope to go down and pick up the files on the new inmates, "And grab yourself a cup of coffee." Hope leaves. Leigh calls the warden, "Get down here... Hope is asking questions again."

Rafe cries and kisses Arianna's hand. Sami leaves as Rafe hugs Gabi. Tears, tears, tears.

Outside, EJ tosses the flowers he brought Arianna at Sami, "There... Happy now?"

"No," says Sami, "I prefer roses."

Kate asks, "What's in it for me if I pop the top on this thing."

"I told you," says Vivian, "You'll get revenge on Victor and Nicole."

"Yeah, but letting you out could ruin a lot more lives than theirs," says Kate.

Vivian reminds Kate, "We have a lot in common. Neither of us forgets and neither of us... uh..."

"You are right," says Kate, "I do not forgive."

Sami cradles the flowers and goes into a snortfest, "A young woman just died. Does that mean nothing to you?"

"She died," snaps EJ, "Trying to make sure justice was served and I got my children back."

"Aren't those two things mutually exclusive," asks Sami, "I forgot. It's all about you, isn't it?" she claims EJ was using Arianna and turning her against Rafe. EJ says he knows Sami is hoping whatever proof Arianna had died with her. Sami flashes back to Arianna telling her she wouldn't get away with it. She starts to walk off.

EJ demands Sami tell him what the proof is, "Or I'll just find out from Will."

"And why would he tell you," asks Sami.

"Because," says EJ, "he's as desperate as everyone else for this plot to move along."

Hope keeps wondering if there was an investigation in April's death. Leigh wonders if she thinks someone is covering something up. The warden walks in and wants to know what they are talking about. Hope tells her they are talking about April and wonders if the warden wants to know why she died.

Victor thinks Hope and Bo are just giving up on each other. He decides to call the governor and try to push him into pardoning Hope. Bo says Hope doesn't want that and wants to go it alone. Victor doesn't think that's good. He says he thinks Bo should push her harder, and also thinks Bo is still teed off at what Hope did to him, "Your family is in big trouble and you've got to do something about it."

"I hate it when you are right," says Bo.

"Well, when you're around, someone has to do the thinking," says Victor.

Vivian begs Kate to help her. Kate wonders why Isabella's sarcophagus is outfitted with air vents and multimedia, "I think you outfitted this for someone else. Who was your intended victim? Someone turned the tables on you, right? Vivian caves in and tells her it was Maggie.

EJ and Sami continue to argue about the truth. A subject neither of them knows much about.

"Young William is going to crack," insists EJ.

"He's already cracked," says Sami. Will rushes up and tells EJ to get away from Sami. EJ backs off and apologizes as Lexie watches. EJ leaves. Sami and Will stare.

The warden says they investigated April's death, "She died of aseptic shock. As they were wheeling her out, she fell into the septic tank." The warden says delaying her trip to the hospital wasn't the issue. She gets into a file cabinet and shows Hope April's file, "There is nothing anyone could have done for her."

Kate brings up old issues between her and. Vivian retaliates with old issues of her own, but realizes that doesn't help her cause, "Kate, you need to think outside the box."

"You will never be able to do that," chuckles Kate, "because you are inside the box."

"I get it," says Vivian, "People hate me and think I'm getting what I deserve. OK, let's do it. Make me mad... make me crazy... made me dead... I can't stand all the people telling me off." Kate says she can't believe it but she's feeling sorry for Vivian.

Hope looks at the file and sees April has been cremated. The warden gets a call and announces Bo is there.

Kate apparently decides to let Vivian out. Vivian tells her where the lever is and thinks about all the revenge she's going to pour out on people. Kate struggles with the lever. Victor walks in, "Kate what are you doing here?"

Lexie tells Rafe Arianna was a registered organ donor and she just happens to be a perfect match for a person right there in Salem Hospital who needs a heart. If you think that's a bizarre and unrealistic coincidence, wait until you hear this... Arianna is also a perfect match for a DOOL writer who needs a brain. Lexie urges them to donate Arianna's heart. Rafe says it was Arianna's wish and they have to do it. Gabi is reluctant. This whole scene wins the Emmy as the most forced conversation in a contrived scene. Even Lexie, Gabi and Rafe talk about the fact that if Arianna was a registered donor, Lexie doesn't have to ask their permission to donate Arianna's heart. Anyway, Rafe and Gabi agree to do it, Lexie thanks them and you've had your organ donation PSA for the day.

Stefano comes into the rumpus room and comforts EJ. "She was tough, says EJ, "Not as tough as the 2010 Hummer that ran her down, but she kept on fighting." He says he didn't find out what proof Arianna had. "I now know two things," says EJ.

"Two things are about the limit of what your brain can hold," says Stefano.

"First," says EJ, "I know it was Samantha who shot me. Also, I know that will knows about it. And I know that Samantha and Will know what the proof is."

"That's three things," says Stefano.

"I never said I could count," says EJ.

EJ tells Stefano how Will stepped up and defended Sami at the hospital, "He's certainly not the milquetoast his father is."

"Well," sighs Stefano, "He's like Katherine... The cojones have skipped a generation."

"With the result," says EJ, "That I don't think I'll ever get Arianna's proof." Stefano tells him not to throw in the towel yet.

Out in the Ejami section of the audience, Mable Smoot from Hardup, Saskatchewan whispers to her neighbor, "If the towel was all he was wearing, I'd sure let him throw it in."

Hope comes in to see Bo. "I've got some bad news," says Bo. He tells her about Arianna's hit and run... and death.

"OMG," says Hope, "I wrote her a letter asking her to forgive me. Then I hired some guy who drove a 2010 Hummer to deliver it to her. He phoned and said he never got it delivered because he hit a bump in the road outside the pub and had to take the Hummer in to have it checked out."

Vivian coaches Kate to tell Victor she's there to pay respects to Izzy. Kate hesitates.

Sami suggests Will go visit Lucas for a while. Will says, "I'm not running away. I couldn't live with myself if I didn't help you... if I wasn't (say it with him) there for you." Big hug.

Dr Walters prepares for the transplant. Rafe and Gabi join Will and Sami. More hugs. Dr Walters thanks Rafe and Gabi. Gabi falls apart and runs off as the wheel Arianna's body out.

Stefano says he never trusted Arianna. He also says he had her followed, "I had my man follow her right to the pub in his 2010 Hummer."

"That means we can still find out what the proof is," says EJ, "Thank God for your suspicious mind."

"Which reminds me," says Stefano, "I left your mind splattered on the bedroom wall in case you want to try to get it back."

Rafe says the recipient of Arianna's heart is a fifteen-year-old girl, "I'm sure she'll be the next unfortunate pregnant teen in Salem and come back to ruin our lives, but maybe there is some good that can come out of this." Sami says she thinks he's an amazing man. Rafe gets teary-eyed, "I need to pull myself together and (say it with him) be there for Gabi." Sami comforts him. Rafe whines, "For whatever reason Arianna could never see what EJ was... or is. I don't know what I will do the next time I see him."

EJ gets off the phone and says the henchman said Arianna went back to Rafe's place and then gave him the slip, "So now what do we do about it?"

Fall is here and the squirrels are gathering nuts. Several people in Salem have disappeared.

Hope tells Bo about April. She says she thinks there is a cover-up going on, "Something is wrong."

Victor discovers the bluetooth in Kate’s ear, "Good God!"

"That's right," says Kate, "I know your dirty little secret." Right now, Victor's dirty little secret is what's in his 'Depends.'

Hope continues to tell April's story, "They didn't get help to her soon enough. It's like they were deliberately letting her die."

"Incompetence is not a crime," says Bo.

"I know," says Hope, "Or you would be in prison with me."

Bo says he'll look into it, but Hope backs him off and says she will handle it. "I do not like where this is going," says Bo.

Kate says she knows Brady put Vivian in there, "Brady told me himself. I overheard him pouring out his heart to Arianna." Victor tells Kate what Vivian has been up to. Kate says she thinks Brady was a little off to do what he did, and Victor's weakness is Brady, "I could blow him out of the water right now, which means I have you by the... light of the silvery moon."

"I've never quite heard it put that way," says Victor, "but you'd better check what's in my 'Depends' before you grab me there." Victor scowls. Vivian smirks.

EJ works at his desk and finds a folded dollar bill. He remembers Arianna giving it to him when she was in prison.

Gabi and Will come back. Gabi says she talked to their mom and Rafe takes her away. Will tells Sami about the conversation. He says he doesn't think Gabi will ever forgive him. This leads to another stupid argument about who is to blame. Then Will decides it all falls on EJ, "I'll do whatever it takes to stop him. Can I have a loan for a down payment on a 2010 hummer?"

Sami tells him to be prepared for a fight. Suddenly she stops short, "When you saw Arianna outside the pub, she had just come from the loft. Do you think there is any chance that camera is in her room?" WELL, DUHHHHHH...

Bo thinks Hope is obsessing. Hope thinks there is a pattern of neglect in the prison and also thinks she can stop this from happening to someone else. Bo asks her to let him know if something else happens.

"That's a good idea," says a viewer, "If something happens, wake us up, too."

Victor asks, "How much?"

Kate is married to Stefano and runs her own business. She don' need no stinkin' money, "Did you really think you could keep me quiet by throwing money at me?"

"I know in the past, guys have gotten you to do a lot of things by throwing money at you," says Victor, "What do you say we go up to the mansion and talk terms over a snifter of brandy?"

Victor and Kate walk off chuckling and talking. "Damn," thinks Vivian, "A brandy sounds really good right now."

Gabi and Rafe look at a picture of themselves with Arianna. Gabi remembers right after the picture was taken they were all fighting again. Rafe reminds her right after that they were laughing, "Arianna isn't gone, she's just with us all the time now. I just hope she looks the other way when I'm fooling around with Sami."

EJ tells Stefano he won't give up, "I just keep thinking about the last time I spoke to her. She said she wanted to meet me at the pub. I got there as quickly as I could. I just... I wonder how long she was there waiting for me."

Will tells Sami Arianna was at the pub waiting for EJ when he got there. Sami wonders if she had time to hide the camera in her room, "We don't know how long she was at the pub. She might have had time to go up to her room and hide the camera before you got there. We have to get to her room before EJ does."

And the race is on...

Tasteless In The Extreme

Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

Vivian lies in her sarcophagus and sings "Ninety-Nine Bottles Of Beer On The Wall" but stops short when the song reminds her of how badly she has to go to the bathroom. She turns on the TV to find Nicole and tells her she is about to offer her the opportunity of a lifetime.

Kate walks in as Brady opens his big mouth and tells Arianna he's torturing Vivian, "For weeks I've centered my life around Vivian Alamain." He apologizes for anything bad he's said to Arianna. She opens her eyes and tells him she was the one who was wrong.

Gabi screams at Will and accuses him of causing Arianna's accident. She runs off as Sami comes up. Sami tells Will they will make this right. Will gives her the bad news that Arianna is about to head for the Big Soap Opera In The Sky.

Rafe runs into EJ. EJ says Arianna was desperate to tell him something and Rafe flashes back to Arianna saying she knew Sami shot EJ. "You're denying your sister her dying wish," says EJ.

Sami-sterics kick in. She insists Arianna won't die even though there are complications. "Denial is not just a river in Brazil," says Will. Too bad he didn't have Rafe to tutor him in advanced geography. She hugs him and tells him it's not his fault. They have a big argument over which one of them is more to blame for this as they head for the hospital.

Speaking of big arguments, EJ and Rafe are back at it. "If Samantha did this," says EJ, "she's not the kind of woman I want sending my kids to a babysitter."

Vivian tells Nicole they have things in common, "I was watching when Brady got the news about Anabella."


"Whatever," snorts Vivian, "I'm not sure he will get over it. I think you will end up alone and broke, but I can fix it."

"You can't fix squat."

Vivian asks, "Did you know I had a title? Pasha of Tanquir deeded me a duchy. Just a sweet little ending to our liaison." Translation: He paid her to take a hike. "I don't care much for titles, but the oil fields connected to the deed did warm the cockles of my heart. I have no heir, so I can name anyone to get the oil fields. You married Lucas for five million, but that's one week's profit for my wells."

Kate finds Melanie at the hospital and asks about them moving back to the Kiriakis mansion, "I know mothers-in-law aren't supposed to interfere, but..."

"This coming from the mom who poisoned her son's wife?"

Kate ignores the crack and says she's just surprised Phillip would want her to live under the same roof as Vivian. Melanie tells her Vivian is gone and it looks like it's permanent. Then Kate tells her she has bad news about Arianna.

Brady continues to pour his heart out. He gives her Isabella's rosary, "She'll look out for you and Pookie."

Rafe tells EJ to go so he can spend time with Arianna. "We both know who's fault that is," says EJ.

Nicole is skeptical that Vivian would follow through with giving her the duchy. "Of course I would," says Vivian, "I think the title would fit you quite well... The Duchy-Bag of Tanquir." Vivian tells Nicole she'll wind up broke and alone. Nicole hangs up and remembers what Vivian said about Brady's guilt over Arianna, "She's totally wrong." Nicole goes downstairs.

Gabi joins Brady in Arianna's room. She cries, "I said so many mean things to her."

"She was pretty good at spewing those mean things right backacha," says Brady, "Spitting vindictive, hateful verbiage at each other is the best way to show love. She knows you love her, but why don't you tell her now... be especially hateful."

Lexie finds Will brooding. "Rafe has done everything for my family and I killed his sister," whines Will.

Melanie asks Brady if he's doing OK, "You loved her."

"I did," says Brady, "I really did."

Sami busts in on Rafe and EJ. She tells EJ he's being cruel by badgering Rafe while is sister is dying. EJ walks away. "We all know who's fault this is," says Rafe. EJ watches as they hug.

Vivian decides she's toast, "You offered Nicole a fortune and she didn't take it. When you can't count on that woman's greed you can't count on anything. My only hope is if someone new shows up. Someone with a caring, compassionate heart... so that person will have to be from somewhere besides Salem."

Kate shows up at the Kiriakis mansion. Henderson blocks her as she says she wants to renovate Melanie's room. Nicole comes up. Kate wonders why she's there. "I live here, toots," announces Nicole.

Will wonders if Lexie can get EJ to go home. Lexie goes over to him and asks if he needs to be there. He says Arianna is the last chance he has to get his kids and he has to be there if she wakes up. That being the case, Lexie asks him to declare a truce.

Sami hugs, "Rafe, I am so sorry I wasn't (say it with her) there for you. I feel terrible." Rafe tells her it's OK. Suddenly, the PA system blares...


The crowd waits outside as Lexie and the nurses work on Arianna. Inside, Melanie shows everyone what a professional nurse she is by completely falling apart and begging Arianna to hang on.

Lexie looms over Arianna with the defibrillator...


Sami tells Will this isn't his fault, but Will doesn't listen. Lexie comes out and tells them Arianna survived in spite of the fact that Lexie's her doctor.

Kate is surprised Nicole is living at the Kiriakis mansion, "You and Vivian... with Carly around, should I pack a bag and move in next?"

Nicole tells her she's there with Brady, "We're together again."

"Vice is nice, but incest is best, Granny." Nicole tells her Victor knows she's there and thinks she's good for Brady. Kate is indignant, "What... are you slipping him some of those pills Hope was popping."

"I find that remark tasteless in the extreme," says Nicole."

"Honey," snarks Kate, "With the outfit you're wearing I would avoid the word 'tasteless.'"

Nicole suggests Kate leave. Kate says she's there to meet Phillip, "Actually with you, Brady, Phillip and Melanie here this is turning into Papa Kiriakis' boarding house."

"And if you move in like you suggested," says Nicole, "It'll be Papa Kiriakis' Cathouse."

Kate says she knows Brady is devastated about losing the love of his life — Arianna, not Nicole. She tells Nicole about Brady saying goodbye to Arianna at the hospital. Nicole suggests Kate not be there when Victor returns. Kate leaves.

Vivian begs no one in particular for help.

Lexie says Arianna's chances aren't very good, "They would be a lot better if I had set that defibrillator on 'stun' instead of 'fry.'" Rafe and Gabi go in to see Arianna. Sami asks Brady how he's holding up. Brady casts a glance at EJ and Sami suggests getting him out of there. Brady tells her EJ is the one who called and told him about Arianna. She asks if Arianna said anything to Brady, but Brady just walks away. Sami decides to get rid of EJ herself, but when she turns to find him, he's already gone. It's not unusual for men to walk off on Sami Brady.

EJ walks into the waiting area where Will continues to brood. Will tells him to scram. EJ ignores him. "I know you didn't shoot me."

"I wish I had," says Will, "Let's face it... my father has shot you, my mother has shot you, I'm bound to do it someday because it's in my genes." He tells EJ to shut up, but EJ says he knows Sami won't let Will pay for a crime she committed.

Kate putters around Vivian's room and remembers what Brady said at the hospital, "She's not here... where the hell are you Vivian?"

Vivian finally sinks to her lowest level yet. She resorts to prayer, "Please... I'll go to church... I'll go to synagogues... I'll go to Mel Gibson's church. Please just send someone to help me... Amen." She flips on her TV and sees someone in her room, "Thank you, God! Thank you!" Kate turns around so Vivian can see who it is and Vivian has a few choice words for God, "HER! YOU HAVE A REALLY SICK SENSE OF HUMOR!"

Nicole strolls at the pier and remembers what Vivian said about Brady pining over Arianna after she's gone, and also what Kate said, "They're both wrong."

Sami sits with Brady. She says he means a lot to her. Brady says she mans a lot to him, too. The touching scenes just keep rolling in.

"My doctor ordered me to give up drinking. It's been 3 days now and I feel really dehydrated." -Brady Black

Gabi says, "Rafe, you know how this happened, don't you."

Lexie finds EJ grilling Will and tells him to leave.

Vivian begs Kate to turn on the monitor. Instead, Kate starts to leave. She stops at the door, "I'm missing something." She wonders why the monitor is there, turns it on and gasps, "OMG! It's you!"

Brady is outside with Nicole. He tells her he thinks Arianna won't make it. Nicole says she would never wish for anything like this to happen and hugs him as she wishes for the Grim Reaper to make a quick visit to Arianna.

EJ says he's not going to stop until he gets his children back, "You and your mother killed Arianna. I'm going to make sure she doesn't die in vain." He gives Will a double cheek-smackey-smack and leaves.

Rafe says what happened was an accident. Gabi asks about Will's argument with Arianna, but Rafe tells her just being together as a family is what's important. Sami walks in and Rafe says he wants her to be there, too. EJ comes in behind her and watches the Hernandez family hug.

Kate can see Vivian but not hear her. They play charades and Vivian gets the message across that Kate has to put in the bluetooth. Kate finds it and Vivian tells her where she is. Kate asks if Brady put her there. "How did you know," asks Vivian.

"Good for him," says Kate.

"No," good for you, "Says Vivian."

"Well, you're right," says Kate, "I must admit I'm pretty happy to see you there."

Rafe and Gabi leave to talk to their mom, who has phoned. Sami stands alone in the room with Arianna.


To earn your PhD in DOOL, what happens next?

A) Your local news breaks in to announce the President has arrived in your town and his motorcade has traffic at a standstill. There's nothing anyone can do about it, but your local yokels will stay on the scene until the show is over so you can miss the big ending.

B) Sami rolls the defibrillator over, dials it up to the highest setting and tries one more time to revive Arianna. When she presses the button to activate it, all the power in Salem goes down.

C) Arianna begs Sami to remove the bedpan she's been sitting on for hours.

D) Sami plays with the switches on Arianna's monitors and suddenly finds the signal from the missing DOOL satellite.

If you answered "E," Arianna wakes up, sees Sami and spews vindictive accusations as her dying words... You win an all-expense paid trip to the morgue with Arianna! (You get at least half-credit if your answer was "A").

Vivian tells Kate the story of her insarcophazation and says Kate can get revenge on the two people she hates the most — Nicole and Victor — by getting Vivian out of the sarcophagus.

Arianna grunts, "I have proof... ugg... ack..." Rafe and Gabi walks back in. Sami tells them Arianna was talking and said she loves them, but Arianna drifts back off. Her machines beep. Lexie and Melanie rush in. Lexie examines as Arianna flatlines. Lexie shakes her head, "I'm sorry." She puts another notch on her stethoscope.

Will walks in as the tears flow.

EJ walks into the waiting area with flowers and sees Sami and Will come out of Arianna's room and hug. Stares.

Inside, Rafe kisses Arianna. Gabi watches and cries. They hug. Arianna's in a better place... a beautiful place... where there is no DOOL.

Goodnight, Mrs. Kiriakis, Wherever You Are

Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

Victor and Maggie are in the crypt. Victor whines around about what a bad guy he's been and how disappointed Isabella would be in him. Ever-cheerful Maggie tells him Izzy would love him no matter what. She takes his hand, "You can be as cold as ice, and there isn't a sentimental bone in your body, but there is that warm and loving heart that makes you so damn complicated." Victor wonders how Maggie always knows the right thing to say.

Vivian hears that and wails inside the coffin. Then she thinks things through, "Pull yourself together, Vivian. Once Maggie finds out what Victor has done she won't give him the time of day."

Maggie continues, "You've made a couple of veiled references to something you've done lately. It has to do with Vivian, doesn't it?"

Stef 'n Ho come into the rumpus room together. They talk about Arianna's accident. There is a knock at the door. Kate answers to find Chad.

Will fakes spilling Arianna's purse at the pub. He rifles through it but can't find the recorder. Gabi comes out and wonders what he's up to.

Dr. Walters comes out of Arianna's room and gives Rafe the bad news. Stick a fork in Arianna, she's done. Rafe is livid. Dr. Walters suggests calling a priest. Rafe thinks calling a doctor who knows what he's doing might help more.

Rafe goes into Arianna's room. He sits beside her. Arianna vegetates.

Outside in the waiting area, EJ paces. He begs Arianna to rally, "You're the only person I can count on." He watches as Rafe sits beside her.

Will tells Gabi he's a klutz and spilled the purse. He touches her arm and says he wishes he could say everything will be all right.

Rafe starts the death watch. He talks about finding the cat Milo when they were young. Arianna nursed Milo back to health by asking God for a miracle. Now Rafe says they need another miracle, "God doesn't seem to be listening to me right now, so you ask him."

Victor don' wanna talk about Vivian. Neither does Maggie. So what do we do? We talk about Vivian. Victor says he's dealing with Vivian his way, not the Maggie Horton way, which means he's not going to blab what he's doing all over town. Maggie says she figured he married Vivian to protect someone, "Somehow, some way, you were taking one for the team. Am I right?"

Kate tells Chad this isn't a good time. Stefano walks up behind her, sees Chad at the door and tells Kate to let him in. Chad says he's there to apologize for being rude. He says he doesn't think it would be a good idea to take the job. Stefano says he admires his spunk and the fact he wants to make it on his own. He leaves to join EJ at the hospital. Chad starts to go. "Not so fast," says Kate, "I stuck my neck out for you and want to know why you are rejecting the offer."

Chad says, "Because you weren't doing it for me, you were doing it for Mr. DiMera."

Victor mentions the wedding day when Maggie offered him a ride. He says if she had done that earlier he isn't sure where they would be right now. Brady shows up. Vivian watches the scene unfold, "Tell him everything, Brady."

EJ asks the nurse if there is anything he can do, like maybe have Arianna's phone and call her friends. The nurse says she'll look for the phone in Arianna's purse, but discovers her purse is missing.

Kate thinks Chad misunderstood. She reminds him when she first offered the job Chad thought she was coming on to him. Chad says he figured Kate was going for the record for doing every guy in Salem. He says he's sorry he misunderstood. Kate tells him she was just trying to help him out. "If you want to stick to that story it's fine," says Chad, "But I can make it without your help." He leaves.

Rafe calls Father Matt and asks him to come to the hospital. Dr. Walters says there is no change in Arianna's condition. Rafe says he hasn't told his mother or sister yet. He leaves to make the calls.

Will tries to be supportive, "You'll see her again. She'll be OK. The doctors at University Hospital are the best. At least that's what the undertakers in town say." Gabi wonders why this had to happen when Arianna was getting her life together. Rafe calls and gives her the bad news. Gabi hangs up and tells Will it's really bad. Will rushes over and hugs her.

Stefano joins EJ, who tells him it's just a matter of time, "She knows who shot me. She's been one of the best friends I've ever had."

"She's been one of the only friends you've ever had," says Stefano. He wonders where the proof is now. EJ tells him about the missing handbag. Stefano wonders if Will has been around the hospital, "It shouldn't take too much to find out what Arianna wanted to show us."

Gabi rushes out of the pub. Will calls Sami and gets her voicemail. He says the camera is not in Arianna's purse, "There is something else you need to know. Call Rafe."

Rafe sits beside Arianna and goes through a litany of everything he has done to be such a jerk. It's a very long scene.

Kate looks at Chad's birth certificate, holding it in her gloved hands, and says she can't keep Madeline's secret any more because Chad is getting wise to the situation. She calls Chris, "I want to arrange a delivery, but I can't be connected to it."

"OMG, Miss Kate," says Chris, "I thought you had forgotten alllll about me."

Stefano says he thinks the best way to honor Arianna is to finish what she started. EJ blames himself for what happened to her because she was doing it for him, "There is still something I can do for her."

Maggie decides it's time for her to leave. She goes and Brady apologizes for walking in on her and Victor. "That's OK," says Victor, "It's hard to get romantic when there is a live woman in the coffin next to you."

Brady speaks from recent experience, "Not if you're in here with Nicole." He wonders if Victor is having second thoughts about Vivian's insarcophagation. Victor says he's not. Brady says, "I think you're getting soft when you're around Maggie."

"Quite the opposite," says Victor.

Will is at the hospital with Rafe. Will blames himself for what happened to Arianna since he was arguing with her. Rafe blames himself for calling her a liar, "I think just now she forgave me." Father Matt comes out of Arianna's room and asks Rafe to step in.

Inside, Father Matt gives Arianna last rights as Gabi and Rafe watch.

Brady says he thinks they should end things because Victor and Maggie have no shot while Vivian is inside the coffin. Victor thinks his only chance is to keep her there. Vivian has her own personal rant, "I don't know what's more nauseating... the toxic fumes or this conversation. Why is it always about Maggie, Maggie, Maggie? As God is my witness, I'll get out of here and get even with Maggie Horton."

EJ calls Brady, "Whatever you're selling, EJ, I'm not buying."

"Just listen," says EJ, "Arianna's in the hospital. She was hit by a car. It's bad. You need to get down here quick, if you want to say goodbye."

The last rights continue. Gabi falls apart and runs out. Rafe chases. Outside the room, he sees Will and tells him Gabi shouldn't be alone. Will takes over the chase.

EJ wonders how Nicole will feel when she hears about this after framing Arianna.

Kate has prepared the birth certificate for mailing to Chad. The delivery boy arrives, takes the envelope and heads out on his mission.

Brady arrives in Arianna's room, "It's true." He says EJ called and told him, "I'm so sorry, Rafe." He asks for a moment alone with her.

Rafe leaves. Brady strokes Arianna's hair, "What the hell happened to us? We had plans and dreams. I was so happy with you. Even when we separated I told myself it would be OK because I would have you in my life. Why did it have to turn out this way?"

Vivian says Victor did the right thing when he told Maggie to go and not come back. She reminds him Brady is wavering and Nicole is a loose cannon, "You are doing all this for a woman who isn't sure she is attracted to you. She won't give you the time of day when she finds out what you have done."

"Then I'll just have to make sure she doesn't find out," says Victor. As he walks out, he takes a cue from Jimmy Durante, "Goodnight, Mrs. Kiriakis, wherever you are."

Vivian vows Maggie will find out, "Then that aging coquette will be out of your life forever."

Time passes. Vivian sings Ninety-Nine Bottles Of Beer On The Wall. She flicks on the TV, "Look who's here... Nicole Just the one I wanted to see."

Brady tells Arianna she's too beautiful, alive and smart to be in this situation. But not smart enough to look before she runs into the street. He tells her he still cares about her as Kate walks in, "I haven't been around, though. I've been too preoccupied with torturing some disgusting woman."

Will finds Gabi outside crying. He says he's sorry, "I never meant..."


"I was just trying to get through to her," says Will, "I don't know why she ran away from me." Gabi figures she ran from Will and it's all his fault.

EJ finds Rafe. He says Arianna was desperate to tell him something. Rafe flashes back to Arianna telling him it was Sami who shot EJ. EJ asks, "Don't you think it's time you told me the truth?"

The Day My Sump Pump Broke

Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

Victor is in the Kiriakis den. Maggie comes in and tells him she got his message, "It sounded important."

"If the message is from me," says Victor, "It's always important." He gets right to the point, "Maggie, I love you. I know you don't feel the same way yet, but I'm a patient man. I could wait another five or ten seconds for you to decide you love me."

Oh, Victor," sighs Maggie, "Don't you know..."

Vivian rushes into the den, wielding a knife...


Victor gasps, "Good God, woman, what have you done?

Vivian holds up the bloody knife, "If I can't have you, no one can."

Suddenly, Vivian wakes up in the sarcophagus, "Oh, it was only a dream... a lovely dream. Now I just have to get out of here so I can make it a reality."

Nicole paces outside Maggie's door talking on the phone with Victor, who tries to talk her into some scheme. Nicole says, "I don't think it's going to work."

Maggie walks up, "You don't think what's going to work."

Will walks up to the nurses' station and tells the nurse there he's got to talk to her about something.

Dr. Jason says Arianna made it through the surgery, but they have to monitor her. Rafe asks, "What are the chances she won't be the same again?"

"She'll be running off at the mouth again in no time, says Dr. Walters.

EJ is in the room with Arianna, "You gave us quite a scare."

Arianna shifts her eyes in his direction, "I have to tell you something... I have proof."

"Proof of what," asks EJ.

"That the speed limit outside the pub should be 15 mph."

For some reason no one will ever be able to figure out, Maggie invites Nicole inside. Nicole wonders why she let her in. "One of Salem's notorious citizens comes calling on me at this hour of the night," says Maggie, "My life hasn't been this exciting since the day my sump pump broke." Nicole tells her Brady sent her over there. Maggie doesn't buy it, "He's been avoiding me like the plague recently, so... you wanna tell me the truth?"

"The plague," asks Nicole, "I doubt it. Brady's not afraid of any disease... or else he wouldn't be having sex with me."

Dr. Walters tells Rafe about Arianna's injuries, "She suffered blunt-force trauma. When you see her, she may have trouble speaking."

"Every cloud has a silver lining," says Rafe. Dr. Walters also says Arianna may have trouble remembering things that happened right before the accident. Rafe flashes back to Sami telling him about the recording, "Drat the bad luck."

EJ asks, "Are you in pain?"

"Only because you're here," says Arianna."

"You say you have proof," says EJ, "Is it proof that Will or Samantha shot me?"

Arianna whispers, "I know everything."

Maggie wants to know why Nicole is there, "I know you didn't come over here for a piece of carrot cake."

Nicole's eyes light up, "Do you have carrot cake? I love carrot cake." Maggie rolls her eyes, but pulls out a piece of carrot cake to bribe Nicole to keep talking. "Victor sent me here," says Nicole, "because he thinks he loves you... uh... do you have a fork?" Nicole eats the cake and continues, "I'm supposed to be here to influence you... to love him back."

Victor is back with Vivian. Vivian rambles about losing him to Maggie. "You can't lose me," says Victor, "You never had me. The only reason I agreed to marry you was Bo said he'd kill you if I didn't, and I didn't want to be visiting my son bastard in prison."

Abe walks Theo in the park. Theo carries a pumpkin and Abe asks, "Do you know what they call a pumpkin with a face carved on it and a candle inside?"

"A statue of the mayor?"

Lexie rushes up, "Oh, my two favorite people in the world!" Abe looks around to see if Tek Kramer has suddenly shown up. Lexie gives him an update on Arianna.

"Why do you look so sad," asks Abe."

"Because I thought Tek might show up after all," says Lexie.

Will concocts a story about a weird woman who was in the nursery staring at the babies and crying. The nurse leaves to check it out because the last time Salem Hospital security guards checked out something like that they wound up raffling off the babies. Will rushes over and snatches Arianna's purse. Gabi walks up, "Will, what are you doing? Is this my sister's purse?"

"No," says Will, "It's her 2011 Ferrari."

Rafe walks into Arianna's room and finds EJ, "What the hell are you doing in this room."

"It's the room I was in," says EJ, "I'm having a little trouble letting go."

Maggie scoops up the rest of the carrot cake and continues to grill Nicole, "How were you supposed to influence me?"

Nicole says she was supposed to make up some sob story so Maggie would go rushing over to Victor, "I know it's dumb, but hope springs eternal in the land of Victor. But I have to say, now that I've been living at the house again..."


"It was Brady's idea," says Nicole, "You'll have to ask him. But I've been spending more time around Victor and he seems different. He's lost his edge."

"Maybe he put it the same place he put his mind when he lost that," says Maggie."

Nicole says all Victor has been doing is moping around the Kiriakis mansion in his bathrobe, "I have a theory about that. It has something to do with Isabella."

Vivian wonders about Victor's future with Maggie, "Let's assume you do win her over... and then she finds out you locked me in a coffin. You're little romance with her will be over... permanently." Victor sighs.

Kinzie runs into Caroline and Sydney at the pub. Kinzie offers to take Sydney to the pumpkin patch. There's just no telling which babysitter Sydney will wind up with next. One thing for sure... it won't be her mother.

Will says he thought Arianna might want the purse when she wakes up. Gabi takes it and says she'll give it to her. Will suggests going for a walk, so Gabi, Will and the purse head for the park.

Rafe wants to know why EJ is there. Dr. Walters tells them to take it outside, "Mr. Hernandez is correct... only family members are allowed in Arianna's room." Arianna chimes in and begs EJ to stay.

Nicole reports that Victor has been spending a lot of time talking to the casket. "Isabella's," asks Maggie."

"No," says Nicole, "Pookie's – they were very attached." Nicole talks about what a lonely depraved zombie Victor has become and leaves.

Vivian says things won't be fun for Victor when Maggie finds out about her sarcophagization. Victor reminds Vivian she's not one to forget things and will probably want revenge, "You'll go straight to Maggie and then to the cops."

"I can't go to the police," says Vivian, "Bo wants to kill me and then you'll tell him about my plan to put Maggie in here."

Victor asks, "Is that your way of saying you'll leave Maggie and me alone?"

"God, no," snorts Vivian."I'll just pretend to return from my trip and come right back into your life. I know I'll never have your love, but I'll settle for the pleasure of your company. And your money. And no more flirtations with Maggie – That's over. And in return, I'll protect you."

Lexie updates Abe on Arianna's condition and says her situation reminds her just how precious life is, "I don't know what I would do if I lost you or Theo."

"We aren't going anywhere," says Abe, "Just like a DOOL plot." And voilà... it's a Carver family hug.

Back in her room, Arianna's awake. Rafe tells her not to wast her energy talking to EJ. EJ tells Dr. Walters, "There seems to be some kind of a situation here... what can we do?"

"I'll tell you what you can do," says Rafe, "You can get the hell outta here."

Suddenly, Arianna's machines go berserk. Dr Walters goes into action, "She's coding!" He turns to EJ and Rafe, "Get the hell out of here!"

Nicole strolls in the park and talks on the phone with Victor. She tells him she told Maggie a sob story about him grieving for Isabella, so Maggie would feel sorry for him. She says Maggie hopped in her car and is probably on the way to the mausoleum right now. As she gets off the phone Kinzie walks by with Sydney.

Vivian tells Victor she saw him talking on the phone and wonders if he's ready to let her out. Maggie shows up.

Back at the pub, Caroline tells Gabi and Will she has to go rescue Roman, "I hope Johnny and Allie haven't handcuffed him to a chair."

"Oh, come on," says Will, "I would think Roman could outsmart a toddler."

"Maybe," says Caroline, "But in this case... there are two of them."

Gabi falls apart. Sensitive Will steps in, hugs her and eyes Arianna's purse sitting on the table behind them.

Dr. Walters and the nurse kick EJ and Rafe out of Arianna's room as Ari vegetates.

Maggie beats up on Victor for sending Nicole on a mission to butter her up. Vivian watches and rolls her eyes as Maggie reminds Victor he's been very supportive about Mickey and she doesn't want him to be alone in his grief for Isabella. "I'm sorry I sent Nicole over," says Victor, "because you're here now and looking at me like this. And you're right. There's no way this can work. I'd like you to go — and don't ever come back." Vivian smiles.

Nicole gushes about Sydney. Kinzie says she thinks Sydney misses Nicole, too.

"I'd like to give Melanie a piece of my mind, but I ran out of pieces." -Chloe Lane-Black-Horton-Jonas

Out in the waiting area, EJ thinks Rafe is too calm while Arianna's life hangs in the balance. Calm is the only emotion Rafe has. "This worked out pretty conveniently for you and Samantha, didn't it," asks EJ.

"Not as conveniently as being able to dump the kids on Roman, Caroline and Kinzie," says Rafe, "but you'd better watch what you say to me right now."

EJ tells him Arianna called him earlier and said she had proof either Samantha or Will shot him, "But you already know that, don't you?"

"I know nothing," says Rafe. Truer words were never spoken. He says he does know EJ sneaked into Arianna's room and pumped her for info without giving a damn about how she feels.

"You're so busy with Samantha," says EJ, "You're the one who doesn't give a damn. If she dies in there... that’s on you." Rafe grits his teeth and tosses EJ across the room.

Back in the sarcophagus, Vivian likes what she has heard, "Yes! Show her the door, Victor."

Maggie, however says she's not leaving, "Let's go to the house."

"And then what," asks Victor, "get me my robe and hot water bottle?"

Maggie says, "I'm not treating you like an old man, Gramps." Victor says the worst thing about losing Izzy was that he was such a disappointment to her when she died. He says he's just glad she's not around to see what he's done. Isabella might have a different opinion about that. "What have you done," asks Maggie.

Kinzie tells Nicole she's sure Sydney misses her, "You were the only mother she had for a while and Sami has like a zillion other kids and doesn't even take care of them because she's too fragile or something."

"Selfish," says Nicole, "The word is selfish." Kinzie has to go, but says she'll bring Sydney back to the park tomorrow.

Back at the pub, Will tries to reassure Gabi. She goes to wash her face after all the crying. Will eyes the purse.

EJ springs back up...


Lexie and a guard come out and break up the fight. Rafe tells her Arianna went into cardiac arrest. Lexie tells a guard to keep an eye on the brats as she goes into Arianna's room.

"You heard what she said," says the guard, "Play nice." He leaves. So much for keeping an eye on them.

Rafe picks up his phone. "If you're thinking of calling Samantha to warn her," says EJ, "It won't do any good."

Rafe sneers, "I'm calling our mother, jackass."

"That's a terrible thing to call your mother," says EJ. He insists Arianna will make it and will tell him what happened.

Nicole looks at a picture of Sydney and decides she has to go on without her, "But how can I stop loving her or forget her?"

Victor reminds Maggie of the meeting she saw with Stefano, "You don't like the man I was that night. If Isabella could have seen some of the things I've done..."

"She'd love you anyway," says Maggie, "but you have a warm and loving heart." Victor thinks Maggie always knows the right thing to say. Vivian wails inside the sarcophagus.

Will gets up and accidentally on purpose spills the purse. No camera.

Dr. Walters comes out and tells Rafe he stabilized Arianna, but things are hopeless, "It's just a matter of time. If you want to call a priest, this is the time."

We pan in on poor, doomed Arianna.

Dead Or Alive Scorecard

Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

It's a busy weekend here at the Prevuze Compound and I don't have time for much of an update or commentary on the current shenanigans in Salem. I hope for things to settle down enough to get back to that next week and as we all know not a single significant thing will happen between now and then, so I guess we won't miss much.

We've had volunteers and might be making progress on getting the Canadian feed, but nothing concrete yet. If you can help, please let us know. Even if we were getting the feed on a regular basis right now, we still need backup because as we have learned, things tend to go wrong on occasion.

In the meantime, here's your quick DOOL dead-or-alive-scorecard:

Isabella – Still dead

Pookie – Dead and buried

Vivian – Buried, not dead

Arianna – Still alive... at least the parts of her they've found are still alive.

Mickey Horton – Dead, but they can't find his grave.

Chloe and Daniel's relationship – Still alive but only because Daniel is taking massive doses of the miracle drug Cluehavenone.

Phillip and Melanie's relationship – Still alive but doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Bo and Carly's relationship – Alive and having fun, fun, fun now that Daddy took the jailbird away.

Nathan and Stephanie's relationship – The relationship is alive, the participants are brain-dead.

Sami and Rafe's relationship – No sign of brain activity but lots of activity of another kind.

Sami and EJ's relationship – No sign of brain activity here either, but that my change once they find the missing half of EJ's brain she blew out.

Brady and Nicole's relationship – Inversely proportional to whether Vivian is dead-or-alive.

Victor and Vivian's relationship – DOA.

Victor and Maggie's relationship – Victor thinks it's alive, Maggie thinks it's dead.

Lexie – Alive, but you can't say the same for most of her patients.

Sparkles – Dead, but now is a zombie terrorizing northern Idaho posing as Bigfoot.

DOOL Writers – Brain-dead; just pull the plug and put us out of our misery.

DOOL Satellite – Still dead.

Your weekend – Alive and well.

Unfounded Accusations

Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

Will and Arianna stand outside the pub. Will begs her to keep her mouth shut, which is a real stretch for Arianna, even under normal circumstances. EJ interrupts and Arianna runs out into the street.


Carly is with Sister Anne at St. Mary's. Sister Anne beats up on Carly for lying as Kayla walks up. Sister Anne huffs off.

Melanie comes to see Stephanie. They share an uncomfortable moment and then Melanie says she needs a favor.

Gabi is at the Hernandez Hovel telling Sami and Rafe about Will and Arianna being together at the pub.

EJ rushes to Arianna's side as the hit and run car drives off. "Call 911," screams EJ.

"What's the number," asks Will.

Gabi leaves. Sami tries to call Arianna.

Back at the scene of the accident, Bo is with Will and EJ as the paramedics tend to Arianna. Will and EJ report it was a hit and run. EJ nestles next to Arianna and tells her she'll be fine just as soon as they find all her body parts.

"How is she," asks Will.

"Let's put it this way," says EJ, "This would be a good spot to open a pancake shop."

Nathan tells Maxine his shift is over and he's leaving. He asks if Melanie is scheduled and Maxine says not until tomorrow. He makes a call but gets no answer, "So, you're ignoring me. All I want to do is apologize. Fine — I'm done."

Stephanie lets Melanie in. Melanie says if Daniel ever finds out about Chloe cheating it would break his heart, but on the other hand, it would give him that ever-evasive clue. She asks Stephanie never to tell. Stephanie insists she'll never say a word. We all wish that was true. Melanie says Daniel is the father and there are no doubts about that. Stephanie is silent, but then says, "I know it was hard for you to come here."

Melanie says, "I wonder if I've been wrong about you." In the background we hear a faint chorus of Kum Bay Yah.

The paramedics wheel Arianna off. In parts. Sami calls Will. Will tells her about the hit and run. Sami turns and tells Rafe. Rafe takes the phone and Will gives him what little details they have. Rafe stares.

Carly catches Sister Anne in the park. Sister Anne gives her the 'thou shalt not lie' lecture. Carly wants to explain. Translation: Damage control. She tells Sister Anne about Carly's unfaithfulness and says she agreed to help Chloe to get the paternity test in secret, and it turned out to be Daniel's baby. She begs Sister Anne not to tell Daniel. "I see," says Sister Anne, "now you want me to lie too."

"Yes," says Carly, "But you'll still have nine other commandments to fall back on."

Melanie is happy Stephanie was nice about her request. Stephanie agrees they have their issues, but says there would be no good in telling. The girls revel in each other's happiness as Nathan arrives. He immediately goes to work on Stephanie but stops short when he sees Melanie. So much for reveling in happiness.

They wheel Arianna into the hospital. Dr. Walters sees her broken, bleeding body and goes into action.

Rafe arrives and panics, but Lexie pushes him away. Will and EJ follow.

Sister Anne lectures. Kayla watches as Carly says she did what she did for Chloe. Sister Anne says she is quite familiar with the part in the bible about not lying, but can't quite recall where the Bible mentions a specific exemption for covering up for Chloe. Carly begs. Sister Anne stares.

Nathan asks, "How long has she been here."

"Just a few minutes," says Stephanie, "Of course when you're around Melanie for even a few minutes it seems like hours. We were just talking. See... No blood... furniture intact." Stephanie goes into the next room.

Nathan says, "Yes... I knew Chloe's secret, but if you're here to rip me a new one..."

Melanie interrupts, "Your old one will do just fine. I'm just here to tell you I'm sorry."

Rafe asks Will what happened, "How many times did Mom tell us not to play in the street?" Sami arrives. Rafe says he saw Arianna and things looked really bad. Gabi calls and Rafe asks her to come to the hospital, "It's your sister. She was run over."

Gabi gasps, "How many times did Mom tell us not to play in the street?"

Sami asks Will what happened. He says he was trying to talk Arianna out of blabbing to EJ and she ran. "See," says Sami, "I've always told you not to play in the street. Mothers know these things. I was also right about that B-B gun and shooting your eye out." Will wants to blame himself since he was arguing with Arianna when it happened but Sami tells him it's not his fault.

Will snorts, "There was just the two of us, who else is there to blame?"

Sami, of course. Sami tells him about Arianna recording their conversation. Will wonders if Arianna got the recording to EJ. Sami figures not, or she would be under arrest. Will tells her EJ was there when it happened. Sami asks why EJ isn't at the hospital. "He is," says Will, "He's in a room with Bo." Sami rushes away like she's been shot from a cannon.

Bo questions EJ, who says Arianna said she had something to show him. Sami and Will walk in. EJ tells Bo he came up on Will and Arianna outside the pub and they were arguing. "What was the argument about," asks Bo.

EJ looks at Will, "Ask him."

Carly continues to beg. Sister Anne continues to lecture. Carly gives up, apologizes again and leaves

Kayla comes up to Sister Anne and says she needs to talk to her.

Melanie tells Nathan she shouldn't have gotten so angry at him, "I wasn't angry, I was hurt. I figured if you cared about me you wouldn't let me walk around being so clueless."

"No one could care about you that much," says Nathan. Melanie realizes he was just trying to protect her and now she's doing the same thing for her dad. "You're not going to tell anyone are you?"

"No," says Nathan, "I'll never hurt you."

Stephanie comes back out, "Everything OK?"

Sami walks toward EJ, "How dare you make unfounded accusations about my son!" EJ jumps down her throat. Bo separates them.

EJ wants to know why Will was arguing with Arianna. Bo says he just wants the facts. "I've told you everything I know," says EJ.

Maxine interrupts and says they're taking Arianna to surgery. Everyone rushes out.

Gabi is with Rafe. Lexie walks up and gives the Salem MD look of death. She says the surgery went well and Arianna is recovering, "Dr. Walters and I are cautiously optimistic." When Salem Hospital doctors are cautiously optimistic, it's time to start filling out the death certificate.

Everyone wants to see Arianna, but Lexie restricts visitation to family members, "We have to keep the combined IQ in the room as low as possible."

EJ suggests Bo put an officer outside Arianna's door to protect her from Sami and Will. Bo growls back at him and asks Will and Sami to come with him. As they walk off, EJ stops Will, "She will get better and when she does, she will tell me everything."

Rafe, Gabi and Lexie are with Arianna. Lexie leaves as Rafe and Gabi tell Arianna they love her.

Bo asks Sami about her fight with Arianna. Sami flashes back to Arianna showing her the recording and the ensuing catfight. She tells Bo it's personal. Fights usually are. Bo asks Will about his argument with Arianna. Sami butts in but Bo shuts her up, "Let him speak for himself."

"I'm sorry," says Sami, "I forgot he's not one of my personalities."

"You people wouldn't exist if I weren't bi-polar." -Sami Brady, overheard talking to herself

Will says Sami told her about the fight and he couldn't let it go when he saw Arianna, "I stuck up for my mom. Arianna got upset and ran off." Bo wonders if Arianna will give him the same story when she wakes up. Will doesn't answer.

"I'm finished," says Bo. He leaves.

Sami says she's sorry Will had to lie for him. "Thank God Arianna will be all right," says Will. Sami says she hopes no one finds the camera with the confession.

Officer Perkins comes in with Arianna's purse. Bo tells her to give it to the head nurse. Sami and Will watch and plot. EJ comes in and watches them watching Perkins.

Bo asks to talk to Arianna. Lexie tells him to come back later. EJ pulls Lexie away to talk to her.

Bo tells Officer Perkins to call if Arianna wakes up. He asks Sami and Will to call if they have anything to add to their statements. Sami flashes back to the argument again. After Bo goes, she and Will concoct a scheme to get the recorder.

Will goes up to Maxine. He says he's on the cross country team at school hurt his ankle. Maxine goes for an ice pack. Will follows. Sami becomes a purse snatcher. Perkins walks up and asks what she's doing.

Melanie leaves. Nathan tells Stephanie he feels bad for hurting Melanie, "You probably don't think much of me right now."

"I think you are great," says Stephanie, "Everything is cool."

Kayla and Sister Anne sit on the park bench. Kayla senses Sister Anne is upset. Sister Anne says she is, but can't go into it. She asks Kayla to reschedule for tomorrow, and leaves. Kayla flashes back to talking to Stephanie about the paternity test. She wonders, "Maybe a tech didn't change the results and Carly did, and Daniel isn't really the father."

EJ tells Lexie Arianna had information for him and thinks it will tell him if Will or Sami shot him. Lexie says she'll clear a visit with Arianna for him.

Gabi leaves to call their mom, "She's really going to be mad when she finds out Arianna was playing in the street."

Rafe flashes back to hearing Arianna and Sami argue. He turns to Arianna, "For a while there I thought we would lose you. I was worried I wouldn't get a chance to tell you I love you. Hang in there." Arianna hangs. By a thread.

Sami tells the cop she's the almost-sister-in-law and was going to hang on to Arianna's purse. Maxine comes up and says the hospital is responsible for it. Sami gives the purse back.

Carly runs into Bo outside the pub. Bo tells her about the hit and run. He tells her about Sami and Will arguing with Arianna, "They're covering for each other about something. I'm not sure what."

"Sometimes you have to do things like that for family," says Carly.

Sami tells Will somehow to try to get in the purse and see if the camera is there, "I'll go to the pub to see if the camera was left at the scene of the accident." Rafe interrupts and says there is no change in Arianna's condition. Sami says she's going to the pub to check on the kids. If that doesn't tip people of that she's up to something I don't know what would. Dr. Walters says he wants to talk to Rafe. EJ watches and stares.

Dr. Walters tells Rafe Arianna Will be in a lot of pain and they need to make sure she stays quiet until she stabilizes, "It would probably be a good idea to postpone her rematch with Sami."

EJ sneaks into Arianna's room. He asks if she can hear him. Arianna half opens her eyes. EJ says she gave them all a scare. Arianna mumbles, "I have to tell you... something..."

Thursday, October 21, 2010


Unfortunately, we've lost the DOOL satellite, perhaps permanently. While everyone who uses the feed is continuing to assess the situation, I am, in conjunction with Barb at the Salem Spectator, asking for a Canadian reader, or someone in the US who can receive the Canadian broadcast, to help by recording and uploading the show. That way, our blogs will remain at least a bit ahead in the US. If you think you can help Prevuze and other blogs, please contact me at Thanks.

Sami and Arianna continue their smackdown. Same song, different day. Sami says no one will believe Arianna. That's when Arianna tips her hand and pulls out the camera she used to record Sami's confession, "The truth will come out." So will a few hair follicles once the fight starts.

Vivian wonders what Victor is going to do to her. She begs him to let her out. Vic ain' gonna.

Nicole wonders if Brady is OK. Not totally, since he happens to be sober at the moment. Brady says they have to get Vivian out of the coffin. Isabella's apparition stands across the room and tells him he has to do the right thing.

Kayla and Stephanie are in the park. Stephanie insists the baby is Daniel's and says Melanie does too or she wouldn't have let Chloe go through with the wedding.

Melanie joins Maggie and Carly in the kitchen. In some circles this would be called butting in.

EJ continues to insist Sami shot him. Bo wonders how he would prove that, which is something Bo asks a lot. EJ says he doesn't know why he's surprised a Brady is covering for a Brady. He also says he doesn't need the police to prove who shot him. That's for sure. In Salem, the police couldn't prove who shot him if they stood there videotaping the shooting with smoke rolling out of Sami's gun.

Rafe and Will are in the pub. Will promises to keep quiet. Rafe says he needs to get in touch with Arianna. Gabi overhears and asks why. "Because she is about to make a huge mistake," says Rafe.

Sami grabs for Arianna's recorder and...



Rafe asks Will to let him and Gabi talk alone. He asks Gabi to trust him and says Arianna is mad at him and won't answer his calls. He asks for the Gabster's phone so he can trick Arianna. If Rafe were any more of a genius he'd be 721,965,247,519th on the list of geniuses behind Einstein.

Back at the Hernandez Hovel, it's the battle of the century. OOH! Sami gets her in a Full Nelson and Arianna counters with a Half-Wit. Sami pulls a reversal and they both go down together in a Pile-Driver onto the precious antique table Rafe picked up from Salem Secondhand. Crusher Brady puts Hulk Hernandez in a headlock. Arianna escapes. Sami crawls up onto the ropes and one... two... three... OH, NO! Sami dives and gives her the dreaded bun-smasher move right on her head.

Arianna's phone rings as she and Sami go at it.

Nicole wonders what's distracting Brady across the room. He brushes it off, but Nicky says he looks like he's seen a ghost. He says he's seen what he's done. She wonders where the change of heart came from. He says he just realized he has a conscience. "That's why there is alcohol," says Nicole, "It will keep you from doing the right thing. Besides, it's not just us any more."

Victor reminds Vivian he told her on their wedding day Maggie was off limits, "You defied me. That's not a good idea. I am Victor Kiriakis and I have not mellowed with age." He says he thinks in this case the punishment fits the crime.

Melanie thinks Carly should leave. Maggie leaves instead. Melanie says she's upset because her dad married a cheater. Like father, like daughter. Carly says she doesn't want any more lies. Melanie wonders if it bothered Carly when she was lying to her, "I really don't know you at all."

Bo tells EJ to stay away from Sami. EJ says any court order won't mean much when Samantha or Will are in jail for attempted murder,"Your wife tried to kill me, your niece tried to kill me, who's next your Mother?"

"Only if you eat at the pub."

Kayla walks in on the catfight. Arianna says, "You get to be the first to know what your dear little niece has done."

"Which time," asks Kayla.

Melanie runs through a litany of reasons why she shouldn't trust Carly. Carly runs through a litany of reasons why she should have used birth control years ago.

Vivian pulls out all the stops. She claims she wasn't going to go through with killing Maggie. Victor doesn't buy it and says she has sealed her own fate. Vivian plays the I-did-it-for-you card. That doesn't work. She tells Victor she's scared, but knows deep down he won't let it happen.

"Deep down I'll enjoy watching," says Victor, "And we haven't even talked about what you did to Isabella."

Stephanie gets off the phone with Sister Anne as Ian walks up.

Sister Anne reads about Daniel and Chloe's wedding. She looks at the picture, "No... it can't be! That girl who can't even speak English snagged herself a doctor."

Rafe says, "Arianna has something in her head."

"That's more than you can say, " says Gabi.

"She acts before she thinks," says Rafe.

"In your case that's a necessity since you never think," says Gabi. Rafe says it scares him that Arianna thinks she's doing the right thing.

Arianna bolts. Sami screams that she's not going to let her ruin her life. Ruining Sami's life, after all, is Sami's job. Sami chases.

Nicole thinks Brady can't handle Victor now that Victor knows what happened. Brady insists he can. Nicole reminds him if they let Vivian go they will pay. Brady says he'll swear Nicole had nothing to do with it, but Nicole insists she won't walk out on him, "We are in this together, until the going gets tough." Nicole decides Brady is one of the best friends she has ever had, "If we were on a ship that was sinking and there was only one life jacket for the two of us... I'd really miss you."

As if Vivian hasn't been tortured enough, Victor quotes Greek literature, "You buried my Isabella with animals. Your fear brought this on. I hope your death takes a long time."

EJ's lawyer busts in and tells Bo bail has been posted. Bo says this isn't over. "You're right there, Bo," says EJ, "This isn't over. Give my love to Samantha."

Sami runs down the street in a frenzy. She finds Rafe and tells him about Arianna's recording, "We have to stop her."

Arianna watches the recording of Sami's confession, "I've got you Sami. Now there is just one thing left to do. Blow it."

Stephanie says her mom thinks the test result switch was a mix up. "What if she's wrong," asks Ian.

Carly says she didn't lie to hurt Melanie, "Lying is too slow and painless." Her phone rings.

It's Sister Anne who says she needs to see Carly now, "This can't wait." Carly hangs up and tells Melanie she has to go. As she leaves she asks Melanie to think about what she said. Sorry, Carly, that would require thinking.

Maggie comes back in for the juicy details.

Kayla rushes into Bo's office and tells him about the smackdown.

Rafe and Sami get back to the apartment arguing. Rafe is upset because he had told Sami not to tell anyone, or to appear on TV with her confession. Sami tells him it's over. "Not yet," says Rafe. He picks up the phone to call Arianna.

EJ also tries to call Arianna. Will, too.

Arianna looks at all her messages but says, "There is just one person I have to talk to... EJ."

Vivian rots. Figuratively, of course - at least for now. She tires to convince herself she's not going mad as she slowly goes mad, "Note to self: remember to pick up the dry cleaning." She vows never to try to bury anyone alive again, "It doesn't always work out the way you think it should."

Victor returns to the Kiriakis mansion. He tells Brady he talked to Vivian, "Communication is the key to a happy marriage. And around here... it's a lot quieter. You know, Brady you shouldn't put people in coffins if you can't face the consequences." Brady leaves. Victor says he has to thank Nicole.

Rafe says he'll talk to Arianna. Speaking of prying dimwits, Bo arrives.

Arianna calls and asks to meet EJ at the pub, "I have something you want to see."

"You can say that again," says EJ.

Bo asks about the smackdown. Rafe tells him it's a family matter and suggests Bo butt out. Bo gets a call and says he has to go. Well, that was a productive meeting, wasn't it?

EJ loses his connection with Arianna. She tells him to get to the pub ASAP.

Stephanie says she is sure no one switched the results.

Kayla is with Sister Anne. She leaves as Carly arrives. Sister Anne shows Carly the picture of Daniel and Chloe, "You lied to me."

Melanie says she's not excited about leaving Maggie's place. "You would be if you had you as a house guest," says Maggie. Maggie says she thinks Melanie is hurting because Carly is her mom. Sounds painful to me, anyway.

Victor says he appreciates the way Nicole has been dealing with Brady. They reminisce about their days as Mr. & Mrs. K and agree no one should ever find out what Brady has done to Vivian. Nicole senses Victor wants something.

Will finds Arianna. He begs her to keep quiet, "If you talk, Rafe will never forgive you and we will both go to jail."

"They have nice visitation areas where you can all hold the Brady family reunion," says Arianna.

Brady is out at the park bench, where he gets another visit from Isabella. He tells her there is no turning back and Izzy says goodbye.

Victor says he wants Nicole to do something tonight concerning Maggie.

Maggie says it sometimes hurts to find out people we love have flaws. Melanie says she doesn't need Carly any more, "You are my real mom in my heart." Maggie hugs.

Sister Anne gives Carly both barrels for lying. Kayla overhears as Sister Anne finishes up and stomps off.

Gabi shows up at the Hernandez Hovel. she tells Rafe Arianna is outside the pub with Will.

Will continues to beg Arianna to keep her yap shut. EJ shows up. Arianna sees him and bolts. EJ chases.
