Here's a tip... When you set your DVR to record, always make sure it's on the right station. Since I didn't do that yesterday, I didn't get the show. This is what happens from being a creature of habit and years of recording on a satellite that's always on the same channel. However the following has been sent in by a compassionate reader (who somehow temporarily lost her sense of compassion and thought we might want to know what happened on DOOL).

* * * * *

Maggie is in the coffin, berating herself for agreeing to meet Vivian at the crypt, alone.

Gus warns Vivian that if Victor finds out what she's done, being trapped in the coffin will seem like a walk in the park.

OMG, Melanie has...wait for it...CHANGED HER MIND again. She summons Chloe to the pier. "I can't," says Clhoe, "I have a doctor's appointment."

"Cancel it" Mel barks and hangs up on her. Daddy Dan appears, overhearing Melanie talking to herself, "I can't do this anymore." When Dan asks "what?", Mel just can't lie to him anymore. Wanna bet she CAN? And WILL?

At the reading of the will, Brady doesn't feel right about taking any of Arianna's stuff since they had broken up. EJ "volunteers" to take the box. Sami freaks. EJ makes snide remarks like, "She knew how whipped this boy [referring to Rafe] was." Rafe takes manly offense and fisticuffs break out.

Victor & Phil try to take a look at what Vivian is doing, but the camera doesn't work.

Maggie in the coffin - not a happy camper.

Justin finally gets everyone to settle down with the pronouncement that there's nothing in the box but some legal papers.

Roman joins the festivities to let everyone know there's a break in Arianna's case. Stares all around. The big news?? A witness to the accident has come forward. SAFE run off to get in on the questioning and EJ follows.

Justin gives Brady the box which, apparently, also has the key to a safety deposit box in it.

Chloe shows up and tries to get Mel involved in helping to name the kid. Melanie freaks, claiming Chloe is trying to "manipulate" her. The judgmental little twerp brings up all the old accusations again. And again. She can't keep lying to her dad & is going to tell him the whole sordid truth. Members of the audience start a petition to have themselves sarcophagized as an alternative to listening to all of this again.

Gus & Vivian get back to his hotel room. Viv wants to order the entire room service menu and go soak in the tub.

Victor tries the bluetooth since the camera isn't working.

Lexie & Daniel shoot the breeze at the hospital. Wedding, Arianna, the fact that Melanie seems to be losing it.

At the pier, Melanie swears she's going to tell Daniel. "You can't judge somebody when you yourself have done hurtful things," Chloe begs Melanie. In one ear and out the other. Finally Chloe tries, "It won't just be my life you ruin. Yours will be too." Anyone think Chloe is going to tell about Philip? ~~~~~~crickets~~~~~~ You got it. She weasels out of it.

Vivian has kept her end of the bluetooth and talks to Victor like she's still in the coffin. He buys it. Vivian can, however, talk to Maggie. Which she does.

Melanie heads for the island. Unfortunately it's not the one she came from — The Island of Dr. Moreau.

Brady & Nicole head straight for the bank to "follow Arianna's wishes".

Roman drags Sami & Rafe into interrogation & lets RAFE do the questioning. EJ barges in and Roman, with all the authority behind his badge, just stands there and lets him stay.

Vivian drops the bomb on Maggie that she had the sarcophagus prepared for Maggie. Meanwhile Victor & Philip go down to the crypt to see if they can find out why the camera doesn't work. Maggie finds the remote and turns on the camera and sees the boys lounging around the coffin.

The witness doesn't have much useful to say. Doesn't know what the driver looked like. However he does "recall seeing a small object getting tossed from her purse." Yeah, right. Roman finally takes the guy off to ask him some questions in private.

Chloe overhears Daniel talking about going to the Horton cabin. When he leaves to see a patient, Chloe takes the boat keys.

Melanie putzes around the cabin and imagines what will happen if she tells Dan about the affair (he'll hate her). Chloe appears. She's going to stay until she convinces Melanie to keep her mouth shut. To that end, she throws the keys to Maggie's boat in the lake. Melanie whips out her phone. By gum, she'll just call her dad and tell him that not only is his wife a total slut, she's a crazy person.

Brady drags the contents of the deposit box home. He leaves the room. Nicole snoops through the box. Guess what she finds. Zipped into what looks like a cosmetic bag. That's right. The recorder. Which Arianna put in her safety deposit box in the bank during all that free time she had between running out of Sami's apartment and calling EJ to come down to the pub to see her immediately.

Victor decides to post a guard down at the crypt. Maggie cries out for him to stay. Victor pauses and decides he needs to "look into Vivian's beady eyes" and tell her she deserves what she's getting. Phil, "Let's do it." They go to open up the sarcophagus.

Daniel answers his phone. Melanie starts to spill, Chloe chases her around the room and....manages to go into labor.

EJ smirks & leaves. Safe decide even if the phone went into the gutter it would have been ruined in the water. They're safe. SAFE is safe. Get it? Never mind...

Nicole plays the recording and finds she's hit the motherload.

Thanks for the recap Prevuze! It seems that my boss has a sense of compassion after all; due to my heavy work schedule, I'm days behind catching up on DOOL...So, when I read about the current state of events, and by that I mean the "exoviventromaggiesarcophagation"(probably the only thing that's changed on DOOL in months!)...seems I'm right on top of things after all!

So...due to ClHOe's debraification, Daddy Dan's still a 1 in the procreation department(although he thinks he's a 2)...Mel's still working on telling daddy the truth, but won't!...EJ & Sami are fighting over Ari's box, except now they've moved the argument from of the bedroom to the Pub! Justin's a lawyer, Roman's a cop...Rafe's still a clueless(and whipped) x-FBI...Brady's still a drunk(but no longer doing Nicole, as he's now pining over Ari). We still don't know who turned Ari into road-kill(hence giving Salem a great spot to put up the next "Road-kill Cafe!)...everyone thinks Viv's sarcophagized, with the exception of Maggie who turns out to be latest sarcophagee...let's see, did I miss anything? NAAAHHH!!!

Have a great hump-day everyone!

Oh, and I happened to see the EJ/Lexie interview on the NBC site...James was so adorable! It's nice to see that side of him :)

And, to continue the unreality, Roman lets Rafe, who is no longer even a patrol cop, let alone an FBI agent, and his fruit loop of a daughter, conduct and sit in on the interview of a witness. Then lets EJ, who apparently was relieved of his duties as Arianna's lawyer, sit in on the same. It hasn't occured to ANYONE that Sami is more psychotic than usual regarding Ari's accident, the distribution of her assets, etc. Not even her father, the oh-so-great police commissioner. The sarcophagus BS doesn't even bother me as much as this story does. At least that was intended to be nuts from the beginning.

With the hallucinogenic paint, it ought to be a good time, and that would be a major improvement over this storyline.

Melanie heads for the island. Unfortunately it's not the one she came from — The Island of Dr. Moreau.

I say we all ship Melanie off to Atlantis. Oh fair Atlantis!

Hail Atlantis!
Way down below the ocean where I wanna be she may be,
Way down below the ocean where I wanna be she may be,
Way down below the ocean where I wanna be she may be.
Way down below the ocean where I wanna be she may be,
Way down below the ocean where I wanna be she may be.
My antediluvian baby, oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah,
I wanna see you some day
My antediluvian baby, oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah,
My antediluvian baby,
My antediluvian baby, I love you, girl,
Girl, I wanna see you some day.
My antediluvian baby, oh yeah
I wanna see you some day, oh
My antediluvian baby.
My antediluvian baby, I wanna see you
My antediluvian baby, gotta tell me where she gone
I wanna see you some day
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, oh yeah
Oh glub glub, down down, yeah
My antediluvian baby, oh yeah yeah yeah yeah

Gracious! Those lyrics don’t make any more sense in 2010 than they did in 1968. Pass over the hallucinogenic paint!

Roman drags Sami & Rafe into interrogation & lets RAFE do the questioning.

Of all the ridiculous contrived crap that is regularly flung in our direction, these scenes take the cake. Instead of doing the interrogation himself, Roman lets Rafe question the witness, and why is that? Rafe is an unemployed former FBI agent, and his sister was the squishee in the accident. Makes sense to me – not!!! If that isn’t goofy enough, Sami and EJ get to observe the expert at work. Geez!!!

What do you know?!! Nicole gets her mitts on Arianna's camera, Chloe’s water bag breaks in the presence of nursing student and head cheer leader of the Clhoe Lane fan club, Melanie, and the beat goes on, the beat goes on. OK – all spare you the rest of the lyrics, but you do have to admit that DOOL is a squirrel's wet dream. It gets nuttier all the time.

Oh my! The plot is thickening. And so are my arteries, but that's another story.

Appreciated the late recap, and thanks to the viewer who provided it. But it sure didn't have all the wonderful snark (and prevuisms) a real Prevuze would have.

Will wait with baited breath for the recap of today's hour of misery!
It only proves that there is no one like Prevuze and the Prevuze minions.

Didn't Billy Mays sell those on TV a while back?

I didn't get to check Prevuze since our computer is again on the fritz. No wonder I had a restless night. I was as edgy as Vivian or Maggie in a sarcoghagus.

I agree with the unbelievability factor of some guy noticing something flew out of a woman's purse. Please! Hundreds of things could fly out of mine. Big deal.

Thanks for the recap. I will definitely need Prevuze this afternoon after a two hour meeting. Woe is me!!!!!

Perhaps the saintly Maggie will learn a little compassion since she is already freaking out after several hours in the sarcophagus that Vivian endured for several weeks.

It would be funny if Maggie came out babbling like a loon. It would be equally ironic if Maggie, in her newfound lunacy, formed an alliance to take Victor and the rest of the Kiriakis clan down with her new friend Vivian.

It would be a twisted Stockholm syndrone storyline, but I'll take it over the self-righteous immorality that SAFE is exposing us to any day!

Yes yes yes!! I love anonymous' plot idea! Twitsed Stockholm syndrome is an amazing idea! Brady went bad, why not Maggie. What a refreshing scenario that would be!

Thanks so much to the compassionate reader that provided the story. I very rarely watch the show anymore, and this was a big help in feeding my crazy DOOL addiction.

I'm glad that you all approve of my Twisted Stockholm Syndrome storyline. So many of us fans have innovative and creative stories that could really improve our favorite soap addiction, but, unfortunately, that mile deep trench that the Days writers are stuck in doesn't allow any feedback to drift down from the fans!
