    My grandfather has the same cardigan. (NBC)
    Deconstructing "Days" from October 22-26:

    Kristen saved this week from the monotony, Lucas had a few good lines, Nicole ramped up the cheese, and the Halloween countdown begins.

    Making "amends."
    Kristen asked to make amends with Marlena but something tells me hell will freeze over before that happens, and do you really believe Kristen’s truly trying to make amends? I bet John will make up with Kristen which will leave Marlena feeling paranoid and angry. That’s how it always works in these situations in soaps. The men are more forgiving (gullible) while the women are smart yet appear to be bitches, thus making a conflict.

    Do you think Kristen really did steal Marlena’s phone and drop it at John’s office to make it look as though Marlena is paranoid?

    Filler?
    Am I missing the point of Kate’s visit to John’s office in order to warn him that his wife’s reputation is on the line if Sami hires Nick "Felon" to work for her? Is Kate desperate? Sami’s job has nothing whatsoever to do with Marlena. At least it didn’t until we learned Kristen was her new boss. Now, I gather Marlena will stick her nose in and implore Sami to quit.

    Validation.
    How funny was it that Kristen told Sami she was promoted far beyond her capabilities and that the staff made allowances for her sloppy work since she was hired? I’m sending a special thanks to the writers on this one. It’s irritated me since day one that she of all people had such a high powered job, even though I love that she’s working at all. I’d like to see Sami keep working but not in a job that we all know is so unattainable in reality for someone without any education or experience.

    No apology.
    It’s interesting that neither Nicole, Rafe, nor Daniel apologized to EJ for his loss. I realize EJ has done some appalling things to Rafe but what is the excuse of the other two? And Chad’s condolences left a bad taste in my mouth. "That's pretty random and brutal." Matt thinks that pretty much sums up the show right now.

    Um and nobody really thought EJ was going to let this baby debacle go did they?! We know EJ better than that!

    "You make me a better person." – Nicole Walker DiMera
    Hysterical! Daniel makes Nicole a better person? I don’t think so. She only dropped charges because Daniel gave her an ultimatum. That makes her Daniel’s bitch, not a better person.


    Happy Halloween! (NBC)
    Ah love.
    Teaser alert! With Chloe returning and Peggy McCay spilling the beans in an interview that Caroline screwed up the paternity switch, which would mean Parker really is Daniel’s son, could we see a Danloe pairing again? It seems possible considering Daniel’s throwing himself under the bus so to speak with Nicole for Jennifer’s sake and since the truth will come out soon and we may see Jenn and Daniel together, their happiness can’t last for too long!

    Chabigail back on track?
    I enjoyed Chad and Abby in the past so if we see a pairing of these two I’ll be fine with it but boy is it awfully fast after Melanie! Then again, who else are these two supposed to date?

    Coming around.
    Tad seems to be coming around with regards to Will being gay and dating Sonny. I enjoyed their dynamic this week. I’ve no idea why Tad would suddenly come around which is a shame. It’d have been nice to see things more from Tad’s point of view instead of wondering if a punch to the head makes Tad more respectful.

    Quick goodbye.
    Caroline and Bo left for California so fast, most of their family and friends weren’t notified. Do they even have someone to run the pub? Vote in our poll: Who will run the pub once Caroline’s gone?

    Were you satisfied with the way Bo left Salem? I felt it was well done and leaves the door wide open for a return.

    Halloween:
    The decorations we're seeing around Salem are fantastic and what fun was it watching Sonny and Will being playful with the costumes! In an otherwise dramatic and dreary week, this was a highlight.

    Fun lines:

    Will to Tad: "If you repress all your natural instincts, she may like you!"

    John to Brady: "Your life sucks right now."

    Lucas to Sami: "Everything that is old is new again for Sami, once again!"

    Lucas, "What standard of perfection are you holding Rafe up to because it sure as hell isn't your own."

    Chad to EJ about his dead baby: "That's pretty random and brutal."

    Best line of the week:

    John: "This mean old bench jump out and get you? You know it happens to me every time. Every time I walk by this bench, I'll just be minding my own business, just walking along and all of a sudden Ahhhhh it just jumps out and gets me."

    What I heard: "This mean old bitch jump out and get you? You know it happens to me every time. Every time I walk by this bitch, I'll just be minding my own business, just walking along and all of a sudden Ahhhhh it just jumps out and gets me!"

    Take a look at Matt’s SOF Musings.

    Thanks Holding! I know, wasn't that funny today? I rewound it a few times.

    About Marlena's phone, thought I heard the secretary say to Marlena, you left your phone, I tried to catch you, but was to late....
    Marlena left before Kristin even got to the office... so I am wondering, the timing if off IMO.
    Kristin helping the little girl, she Did not know that John was there, that little accident happened before John even showed up, so I would think Kristin really was helping the little girl...
    Marlena sure does not have a lot of faith in
    "Shrink Work", the way she dismissed it in the park, when Kristin told her about her sessions, or is that she thinks, Kristin never had any sessions at all.
    Wasn't Kristin in a Harem or something, what happened, need some explaining there.
    Kristin, before she lost Her own Baby and went bunkers, used to be a nice lady and John loved her very much. So why, is it not possible, that she after all this time,
    as many years as our Elvis is old, she could not have returned to be the nice person she used to be.
    I hope not however, because I want some exciting SL's not boredom coming up.
    So Kristin, I hope you will spice up the life of John and Marlena, their Sl really needs it bad.
    Now, Kristin left pretty much after little Elvis was born,
    but she remembers Sami, Brady etc., just how much older are these people to Elvis. Is Sami a Cougar to young Elvis.
    Kristin talked about when Sami tried to sell her sister Belle, Sami was a teenager then...... wouldn't that also mean that Will and EJ are pretty close in age.
    Just wondering, I know this is a soap, and AGE has always been a little stretched if needed....
    I agree, they could have been just a bit sympathetic about EJ's loss of his son, a loss is a loss, no matter who the person. They showed no class at all at a time like this, IMO.
    Good scenes with Caroline, Bo and Sami.
    Hope we will see a proper Good bye, because Bo might not be back, and the actor deserves some kudos for all his many years of work on this show.

    So sorry about the double posting....

    Posted by holdingonfordearlife at Saturday, October 27 2012 12:06 PM

    Its hard to tell about Kristen and what she might be doing.
    I don't think I'd trust her!! Considering her family!!

    Hi holding....
    I hear you about Kristin,
    but, no matter what,I hope she will bring some excitement to the show.
    Since I am not choosing to watch the Walton's but a soap named DOOL, I want all the twists and turns and ups and downs, the writers can come up with. Make it worth my while to sit there and watch this fictional show, have the Characters do things, absurd and unbelievable, I want entertainment, and SL's that can blow your mind.
    In short order, I want to escape everyday life and loose myself in the most unbelievable SL's the writers can come up with. Modern Day Fairy Tales, where the Witch can marry the Prince, and the "Evil" one can change and get the fairy princess. Look at Jennifer, our fair Lady, how she has changed, look at Rafe, "Good Guy" how he can turn and protect a Would be Killer, Samantha/shooting EJ/, and now protecting Nicole from EJ, don't know why, EJ would love his child....... Nicole was over reacting IMO....
    etc..... Dr. Dan, well I should say the Salem Lover...and I am saying that in a funny way,,,,
    Maybe, that is why they made Jenn half bad, to put her with Dr. Feel good Dan.
    Who would have ever dreamt, that our Maggie Horton would end up with the CrimeLord/PornoKing/Killer/Etc. Victor Kiriakis..... Mr.and Mrs. Horton === not in a million years...but here we are, Vic and Maggie...
    So why I say, can't our Sami, who was such a bad girl long before EJ was even Inseminated to Susan/by Stefano's sperm, to Elvis singing.....
    and Lordy did Sami do bad and evil things, while EJ was still in diapers, so come to think, EJ will never be a match to Sami,
    end up with our EJ, who has so many more excuses why he turned out sort of Bad, raised by Stefano....
    Let's face it, Sami and EJ have chemistry like none other,
    I think, but then again, this is my post, and I post what I think, nobody has to agree with me, fair enough.

    Florentine really? I wasn't sure if Marlena really did forget it or if Kristen made it look that way. HAHA I can't trust Kristen at all!


    Good point about Victor and his past.

    I loved when Kristen said to Sami, "Hello Pot its me Kettle"---lol
