    Darkness Against Light.

    Friday, October 05 2012
    Nicole gets devastating news, Bo makes a decision, and Stefano calls his son.

    At the hospital, Nicole reels over Dr. Sedwik not being able to find the baby's heartbeat. They do an ultrasound and Nicole begs, "Give me the wand!" Nicole sobs as Dr. Sedwick tells her, "I'm sorry. Nicole, your baby is dead." They had no way to detect this. The doctor writes notes as the computer system's still not up while Nicole stares glumly. The doctor will have a nurse contact her about inducing labor.

    Jennifer's floored when Daniel tells her at the cafe, that they're no longer friends because they're going in two different directions. What that makes them - acquaintances? She blames Nicole for risking his career and asks him to consider his family. He tells her to get out of his life and leaves.


    EJ spies behind a tree at the square as Sami and Rafe make-out, rehash how Sami learned the truth about EJ's blackmail and discuss their future. Each gets texts that they ignore. Rafe goes to get take-out as Sami confronts EJ for his betrayal. He explains that though it was misguided... "Twisted and sick," she interrupts. He says his motives were pure. He loves her. She comments that he doesn't have a heart. He hasn't changed one iota. She calls his words of love empty but Rafe knows what love is. EJ thinks she's doing the safe and expected thing by pitting him - darkness, against light. EJ calls Rafe a liar.


    At the pub, Kayla and Bo discuss her using work as a distraction. Bo rambles about his frustrations with work. Hope arrives and gushes about how supportive she is in whatever Bo's decision is. Kayla brings up all the layoffs going on, surprising Bo. He runs out to ream out his brother.


    Bo runs into Roman's office to berate him for laying off new cops. Bo's more senior than both of them and if he takes early retirement Roman can keep them. Roman calls that counterproductive. Bo hands over his resignation he's had for a week. Roman's visibly upset.


    Nick busses tables at the pub when Maggie and Rafe walk in. Rafe takes Nick aside to thank him for defending Gabi but wonders why he did it. Nick thought Gabi needed a break and she's been there for him. He promises not to take advantage of Gabi and gets Rafe some grub.

    At home, Jenn's about to recycle Nicole's baby magazines when Kayla arrives. Jenn's considering quitting work. They both get emergency messages and rush to University.

    Daniel goes to the mansion to confront Maggie about talking to Jennifer about their confidential discussions. Maggie tries to defend her actions but winds up apologizing. She runs off to help Ciara and he calls Nicole about moving to Utah.


    Back at the hospital, Nicole sobs and reflects on what could have been as she looks at Halloween costumes. Jenn and Kayla arrive. The power has been out in the ER for an hour. Jenn gets a release out and Kayla tells a nurse to get dispatch to send patients to another hospital. Anne stops by to gripe at Jenn for taking her time with the release and Jenn pounds the desk. "Enough!" Anne sees Dr. Jonas and runs away and Daniel examines Jenn's hand. Back in her room, Nicole has dressed. She tries to answer Daniel's voicemail but can't so she leaves, encountering Daniel and Jenn together laughing. She starts to cry.


    Bo returns to the pub to Hope. She learns he resigned. She hugs him but seems hesitant. They leave.

    EJ tries to work in his office but is so angry he pounds on his desk. Stefano calls.

    Sami and Rafe arrive at the loft with food. She tells him she confronted EJ. He was who texted her but there'll be no more lies. She asks if Rafe's the father of Nicole's baby.


    Bo and Hope visit Ciara at the mansion. Maggie listens as Bo vows to Ciara that he'll never miss another assembly again.


    Sneak peek!

    Sami wants Rafe to let her in on Nicole's paternity secret.

    EJ rejects Stefano's help.

    Stefano makes a call to a mysterious person...

    Oh My God!!!!! Today's episode is BRILLIANT!!!!!! BRILLIANT!!!!! PURE PUFECTION!!!!!! It was PERFECTLY written and PERFECTLY acted by EVERYONE!!! I couldn't even "post" while I was watching for fear that I'd miss something!!!

    Posted by 25YRSOFDAYS at Friday, October 05 2012 11:19 AM


    I'm thinking that all of the people who stopped watching DAYS cuz they were fed up with the writing should now COME BACK!!!! I think it is getting REALLY good, and I think it will only get better with Stefano and Kristen coming to Salem!!!! I can't WAIT!!!!

    The EJAMI convo went EXACTLY how I wanted to see it go!!! EXACTLY!!!

    Nicole's Baby - There are just ENDLESS possibilities for what has and/or could happen. I'm sooooo excited to see how this plays out!!!

    I don't read spoilers (and don't want to know anything, please), so this is pure speculation, but . . . depending upon Jenn's level of involvement (whether or not Nicole is somehow able to play it off as if Jenn caused her baby's death) . . . Daniel could initially be furious with her for causing so much stress to Nicole and for jeopardizing her baby's health, and he might turn to Nicole to comfort her and see where things go with her. But THEN, if it comes out later that the baby isn't really dead and that Nicole went all that time allowing everyone to think Jenn caused the baby's death, etc. Daniel will be furious with Nicole, realize what he should have known about her all along (how she lies, manipulates, uses people, etc.) and get back with Jenn. And by that time, Jenn will have had enough time to fully heal from the loss of Jack. Just soooooo many possibilities!!!

    Arianne Zucker was AMAZING today!!!!! AMAZING!!!!! She is SUCH a fabulous actress!!!!

    Everyone else too . . . just FANTASTIC today!!!!! This was the PERFECT Friday cliff-hanger . . . what a way to end the week!!!! KUDOS, for REAL, to the writing team that put this episode together!!!!

    Love your excitement 25yarsofdays, hoping more of the fans can feel the excitement. I have totally been wrapped up in our show lately and cannot imagine why there is not more excitement. Sometimes it does not go the way I would really like for it to go, but the writers do not have to please just me, there is a whole bunch they are pleasing.

    From the recap: “She blames Nicole for risking his career and asks him to consider his family.”

    I understand the basis of this but ultimately it is HIS decision. Daniel is an adult and is capable of making up his own mind. Nicole’s not holding a gun to him, blackmailing him, twisting his arm etc. etc. I would think he could figure out the repercussions to his life from the lies that have been told. Let’s see some responsibility here.

    Some additional thoughts before I sign off . . .

    With Bo leaving, I would LOVE to see Belle and Shawn (and little Claire Bear) return home. Jason Cook would be GREAT! Kirsten Storms is my FAVORITE Belle, but I heard that she'll go back to GH as soon as she's better (if that hasn't happened already), but Martha Madison was good too. She looked like a more "grown up" Belle, and it took me a while to get used to her, but I think she'd be okay for me going forward.

    Pertaining to my theory about our SAFE vs. EJAMI preferences . . . The way EJ was originally written was somewhere between "friendly neighbor across the hall" and "bad boy" (kinda like the old Bo Brady . . . EJ, a rebellious race car driver, and Bo a bad boy on a bike!!). He was a little underhanded, not entirely truthful, willing to play outside the law, but definitely NOT evil. At that time, Sami was MUCH worse - LOL!!! She was sooooo evil back in the day (when she was trying to steal Austin away from Carrie) that she won several awards for "Best Villainess" (in the same category as Vivian Alamain - LOL)!!! I LOVE that Sami has moved away from being CRAZY evil to being more of a typical "bad girl" who plays outside the law and does whatever it takes to get what she wants. I like that she's growing up and being a more responsible parent, but I still love when she follows her heart and takes things into her own hands . . . fully doing whatever she thinks is RIGHT (by her own definition), and I really hope Sami forever keeps that rebellious edge to her. Meanwhile, the writers have moved EJ away from being a rebellious, fun-loving bad boy to what Sami was before (CRAZY evil), and most of us EJ (and EJAMI) fans are NOT happy about this. When they finally got together, they were both somewhere in the middle . . . perfectly GRAY, and we LOVED that grayness about them. While I LOVE how the storyline is currently playing out, I still want to see Sami stay a little bit bad and EJ go back to being a little bit good, and I FOREVER hope they will be together again (in all their perfectly GRAY glory) as one happy EJAMILY

    little bear - about Sami's kids . . . I could care less if she has 1 or even 10 more kids (lol) . . . I just want them to be with EJ and not with 10 different fathers - lol!!!!! I also liked your thinking about Nicole having that next "miracle baby" with someone whom she totally loves and wants to spend her life with (although, I still don't believe her current baby is really dead). I'm just sick and tired of the writers giving her "miracle babies" in the first place!!! I think it would be better instead if they admitted it was all a big mistake and that Nicole really CAN have children - LOL!!! That would make a lot more sense to me than all these "miraculous" babies they keep giving her ;-)

    Several comments: I am glad Jen finally went after Nicole and I wish they would stop saying she is losing it. It's about time when it comes to Nicole. Dr. Dan was a totally abusive jerk today and I hope Jen dumps him for good; although it's really none of her business. Bo leaving the force, blah, blah, blah. Nicole's baby, I am sure it's more than what it seems, probably still alive and taken by Stefano or something. I know EJ and Sami have sparks, however, it seems like there is real tenderness between Sami and Rafe, like them together better. Caroline's memory problems, hope they don't go there, too much in real life. More later.

    Posted by ChiSox1 at Friday, October 05 2012 01:02 PM

    There are some of us, including myself, who think they may be writing Caroline with Alzheimers. But, I wonder if that’s what it will be. The other day when she was talking with Bo and she mentioned getting twisted around in her route back home she also mentioned having a headache. That got me to thinking -- something different, maybe?

    Posted by holdingonfordearlife at Friday, October 05 2012 01:23 PM

    WE deal with all kinds of things in the real world and
    we should be able to accept them in a soap opera....

    Memory loss comes on from a lot of things....age....open
    heart surgery.....you have all the long term memories
    possible...but sometimes you forget what you are going to
    say in a sentence...............it happens!! Life goes
    on.............we move forward...........it happens!!!

    Not caring for the way they write Nicole...but...that
    is the way the writers seem to get their thrills...so
    blah...blah...blah...however I don't think she is deserving
    of either of the names on the "Poll"...her vs Jennifer...
    very unkind to say the least!!

    I am willing to bet that this baby is not dead. It is too much of a coincidence that the doctor is not Nicole's regular doctor, and will be conveniently leaving town shortly. Of course I don't now how it's possible to switch a live baby for a dead baby in the delivery room unless the mother is out. I would think that this would be very difficult. On the other hand, this is DOOL.

    Not too thrilled about Kristen, but would LOVE to see Susan back.

    Posted by condesabays at Friday, October 05 2012 03:15 PM

    Nicole was outstanding today, as always. Such sadness tugs at my heart. Sami turning to Rafe today was a bit disconcerting. Does she not have a bit of moral turpitude? However, Rafe was loving it. Does he not get that this will blow up in his face soonest? Daniel is running from his feelings for Jen. Why? They both know what they want and are denying it. This will most likely drag on, but could prove to be interesting.
    Just beginning to feel a bit of excitement regarding what the writers are putting forward. Can only keep my fingers X'd..................
