Salem Shenanigans from March 24 - 28:
These are the meddlers of our lives.
Partners in crime.
Theresa caught on mighty quickly to Liam’s obsession with Her Royal Hortonness. Too quickly. It was preposterous. For about five seconds I really thought Theresa was going to start turning over a new leaf and tattle on him to Daniel. Nope. This isn’t going to end well. Theresa's stupid to trust a psycho. He's going to continue to use her when she thinks they're in cahoots. Her handkerchief is going to come in handy for him.
Jordan’s boring mystery.
I thought at first a bit of interest was generated in the Jordan mystery storyline when it looked as though she and Nick knew each other but now I’m not sure if they knew each other from somewhere or if he just realized Kate brought Sheryl to town to meddle in Jordan and Rafe’s relationship. What did you think? Vote! Days poll: Does Nick know Jordan?
Rafe is probably wondering how he invariably gets himself involved with liars but once he learns Jordan's a damsel in distress it'll be 'White Knight to the rescue'. Yawn.
Our eyes popped out of our heads collectively when Gabi asked Rafe, “Why do people assume the worst of Nick?” Completely brainless. Then she actually said to her brother, the police officer, “He’s not an ex-con, he’s a Horton for God’s sake.” What a ditz. He’s a Horton who is an ex-con who most recently attempted to rape her. Nobody changes in three months and Nick will never change. Thankfully Rafe gave her a huge dose of tough love and since he couldn’t respect her decision to be with Nick, walked out on her. Good. You can’t give a person an ultimatum and not expect the possibility that they’ll walk away.
Do we now call this “Conscious Coupling?” Sheryl and Lucas were cute together but so rarely seen, sadly and we’ve Maxine and Abe finally getting a little closer. How adorable was Maxine squeezing with Jennifer about the date! Plus, it’s good that Abe gets to move on from losing Lexi.
Abby’s had some time to think after her pregnancy scare and now regrets having it off with EJ. She doesn’t even want him anymore. Wait until she learns that was no scare and that she really is pregnant. Better yet, one of our forum members, Txwildcat, says, “Wait until she finds out that he used her to cover up the 'murder' of the very cousin she was so desperately searching for.”
EJ’s reaction was interesting. He looked disappointed that Abigail doesn’t even want to be around him anymore.
Why would Sami follow Jordan and Ben?
Jordan and Ben’s five second chat at TBD caused Sami to follow them into the square where she tattled on Jordan to Rafe. What’s her deal? There was no reason to follow them. Jordan and Rafe are none of her damned business! So stupid. Why bother getting Sami involved in Rafe’s relationship again? It just didn’t make sense unless Kate's right and she still has feelings for her ex. Then Kate tried to get Sami into trouble with EJ who then had to contend with his child bride-to-be protecting her ex-husband. Again. He had the look of someone sick and tired of her crap. He’s got to be one of the few Salemites not interested in sticking their noses in where it does not belong.
Rude and immature.
Sami dressed like a trashy sixteen year old and acted four years old making fun of Stefano for having Erectile Dysfunction... not that he even has it but still. And that she made fun of him rather indiscreetly when EJ asked her to respect that it’s a private issue made me want to turn off the TV right in the middle of my recap. Why the hell does the show need to make Sami act like she's a child still after all these years and how come it doesn't make EJ get Erectile Dysfunction? Gah!
