These are the "Days" of my week for March 16-20:
Disclaimer: This week, my blog holds two spoilers. I felt the need to spoil a few things while discussing other items because I didn’t feel I could discuss them otherwise. On to the blog!
Stefano’s getting a few more steps closer to finding out Nicole’s secrets, and this new butler, Alfred, I believe his name is, is said to see all and hear all, just like a butler should! I wonder if when Tony dies (I mean you all know it’s coming, right?) if Stefano will find out about Nicole from Alfred. But wait… if this butler knows all and sees all, how come he didn’t even know where Tony was, when Philip came calling? With Tony being the Godfather, don’t you think the butler of all people would know they were all at the church for the Christening? Is that a blooper or was he lying to protect Tony? Not that it matters. I’m just saying… Tony was great this week. I also enjoyed Rafe and Brady. Everyone else does very little for me these days. Maybe except for Melanie.
Melanie’s wheeling and dealing this week put her right back to square one. The girl is young, naive and greedy and doesn’t think before she acts, but at least she’s proactive. I’ll give her that, and I like when she’s on my screen. She’s very theatrical. I prefer that to stone faced actors. Not saying there are any on Days, of course… just saying! *grin* Oddly, her and Rafe are about the only things that interest me right now. Rafe, with his mysterious past, is intriguing to me. He told Sister Agnes that what happened [with that woman] before isn’t going to happen again! What happened? He obviously has this knight in shining armour thing going for him and likes a damsel in distress. Sami fits that title, perfectly. Even Brady is starting to interest me.
Moving on… Is Hope changing? She’s happier, bubblier, and we learned she does volunteer work with kids, at the hospital. She’s trying to befriend two good looking guys, Daniel and Rafe, innocently, while Bo looks on, with jealousy seeping through every pore. In the message boards, many things have been suggested to excuse Bo’s odd behaviour. You guys are smart viewers. At this point, I don’t understand these visions either, but I do know they’re not what they appear to be, which means we’re in for a surprise. If you don’t know by now, (SPOILER ALERT) Roman is the man in bed with Hope. When we saw the latest vision, I first thought they were on a police investigation, under cover, but she spoke, and talked about fooling Bo and being in love with somebody else, before moving into the man’s arms. Very strange indeed. Is she Princess Gina? What is going on? Hope was insulted on Thursday, by Bo’s jealous demeanor, when he approached Hope linking arms with Dr. Hands. If Bo knew that Daniel has bedded half of Salem, he’d be absolutely unreasonable. Maybe Hope should put herself in Bo’s shoes and see how jealous she’d become if the tables were turned, though if she’s Princess Gina, she wouldn’t care.
The Chloe/Lucas wedding was so bloody annoying. I didn’t write Monday’s recap, instead spending that time in the hospital with my husband and his cracked rib! (He’s fine!) I got to watch the show without writing, later, which was harsh. I like the distraction of writing while viewing. The JP annoyed me. He was moving so slowly, because we had to ensure the wedding didn’t go by too fast, so Kate could try to make it there. Yawn. At the wedding, when Chloe and Lucas were asked if there was any reason they shouldn’t marry, Chloe says, "I thought that was just part of the ritual." I smirked. Ritual. Interesting wording. At basically that same moment, Daniel thought about Chloe, and said her name, which in soap world, means they may have a connection, the way Bope does … or did. Anyway, I wanted to say to the JP, "Just marry them, you fool!" Then he took a call (from Kate, no less) during the ceremony. WTF?! They were very accommodating, but I thought it was a little rude! Then we saw poor Daniel fantasizing about marrying Chloe, during the ceremony.
It wouldn't be my column if I didn’t mention Chloe’s wedding day 'do'. I’ll try to give it a rest after today. A person made a comment on Soap Opera Fan, saying they thought Chloe’s hair looked like Elvira’s hair, on a good day. I wouldn’t go that far. It’s not a horrible tangled mess. It’s very pretty. Just a little big for my taste. My husband was running on the elliptical (home gym) and saw a commercial for something called "Bump It", (keep in mind he dislikes the Elvira look as well) he found the website and gave me a link, wondering if perhaps this is what’s used to get that bouffant on the back of Chloe’s head. check it out!
Forget Chloe’s hair. This show loves to give us more babies by the dozen. SPOILER ALERT… Watch for Chloe to consult her calendar soon, as we’ve all done at one point or another! Could there be another horrible 'Who’s Yo Daddy?' storyline coming? Sigh. I felt my shoulders slump! More babies? Ugh.
