    Nu-Eric. (NBC)
    Deconstructing "Days" from November 12-16:

    Things picked up in Salem this week. We had an excellent balance between the romance and the drama, a lot of comedy from the unlikeliest of sources, and we learned Sami can suddenly speak Japanese...

    Oh John.
    After everything Kristen has done to John and Marlena, it’s not easy to believe he would not only forgive Kristen but defend her. Forgiveness will benefit him, but he shouldn’t trust the woman! Then again look at all that EJ has done to Sami and those two have forgiven each other and then some. It’s sort of ironic and interesting though that Kristen can’t get forgiveness for faking a pregnancy after miscarrying John’s baby and stealing John Jr. (EJ) 14 years ago but Nicole did this very same thing to EJ 4 years ago and he and I think most of Salem has forgiven her.

    EJ was born 14 years ago which means anything he does we can’t exactly blame him for being that he’s just a teenager. I say this with tongue planted firmly in cheek.

    Filler or establishing some form of a relationship?
    Abigail shared a random, confusing yet pleasant scene with her family’s number one enemy, EJ DiMera. We know Abigail likes older men who aren’t into her so could this mean something, are TPTB establishing a new friendship or is it simply an exchange we shouldn’t think too much about?

    "We’re both pregnant."
    Gabi broke a nail, I mean fainted and had to be rushed to the hospital by Nick, who paced, picked his teeth in a way that only the obsessed can... Sami learned of the nail breaking and immediately placed a call to the Pentagon, I mean Rafe, and then raced to the hospital in the DiMera’s company jet. It was oh so convenient that Sami was there when Gabi learned she was pregnant. Sami didn’t seem to mind though Gabi seems overly concerned her brother will be "disappointed" in her. Another baby storyline… I may be the only one who doesn’t care either way since Gab’s not a child and we all knew Will would take responsibility. So where’s the story? Perhaps Will keeping grief sex with Gabi from Sonny will cause a little strife and Nick might not like a gay man being the father to his girlfriend’s baby. Maybe the story is that she’ll consider an abortion. Either way, it all has a distinctive 80s feel to it. I wasn’t shocked about the pregnancy but it took a minute for it to sink in that Sami’s going to become a grandmother at such a young age. The kicker? The tables are turned. Sami’s the one with the baby secret, not Rafe. That was awkward!


    Random. (NBC)
    Trouble finds Nicole and Nicole finds trouble.
    Nicole not only borrows trouble but trouble follows her like a disease. At least nothing keeps her down for long. She was ready to leave town to be with Taylor until she saw Eric Brady. It may be too early to decide if she is already fantasizing about getting him out of that clerical collar or is just happy someone cares about her aside from Brady and Rafe. Will Nicole go after Eric?

    Even though Jennifer Horton is practically a saint, she sure hasn’t behaving as one as of late, which begs the question for many fans, why on earth would she apologize to the woman who accused her of murdering her child and almost sent her to prison? I guess seeing someone hit rock bottom does a lot to change one’s attitude. Now that the move to Hawaii is off, Daniel’s resignation must be null and void. He’s back at the hospital hanging around Jenn. Sometimes watching them together is like being served two pieces of stale dry bread when what you really want is bruschetta. If they want to win over the fans they are going to need to bring that passion back from their days arguing.

    Lucas was right!
    Maybe I understand more now why Lucas was so fierce in his attempt at breaking down Sonny’s door. Between him and Gabi, it’s surprising the door is still on its hinges. So Lucas was right. Sonny admitted he really did lure Will to his apartment in order to show him his etchings. "There’s going slow and then there’s going S L O W," he says. I thought it was cute. It’s not as if Will was forced into anything. It was a matter of feeling comfortable and having that time alone to do it.

    Random thoughts.
    I'm enjoying Father Tobias' down to earth and humourous scenes with Kristen, EJ and Kristen's chemistry. Their scenes have a relaxed feel to them as do the ones with nu-Eric, Greg Vaughan. I did find Hope trying on Tom's Pilgrim hat unnecessary and random? Could they be finding it difficult to fit Hope in now that Bo's not around?

    Until next week, have a glorious weekend.

    Guess what? Patrika Darbo is returning.

    Take a look at Matt’s SOF Musings. A taste: "Considering the DiMera penchant for swapping women, Abby could be in with a shot at the man with the superfluous hole in his head."

    Dustin’s Thoughts on Days: Regarding Bo and Hope, Dustin says, "It’s 2012, some people are single, and some people have long distance relationships. It would be refreshing to see the show address that."

    Boy was I thrown that Sami can speak Japanese. Though I don't know that it was Japanese or Cantonese or what...

    Still pretty funny.

    Oh and also wondering if Kristen hired those thugs to 'rob' her since they ran away without taking her purse. Hahaha

    She being a Dimera...anything goes...I suppose!!!

    She is a sneaky one and always up into John's
    business!!

    Exactly! Was a pretty good week. I'm so glad after last week's mess.

    Have a nice weekend.

    I reckon if you twist your tongue around your eye teeth
    you can just about speak any language...you should hear
    me carry on a conversation with my friend from El Salvador!

    We understand each other...equally!!!! NOT!!!
    Such fun!!

    all those babies and wives...etc!!! Unless in Salem...they
    start out really...really early...like soon as they go
    from crawling...they start the grown up stuff!!! Go
    figure!!

    Chrissi, shouldn't we say, Will Nicole go after Eric, since we already have a Brady....
    Like your posts..
    I could never understand why the writers used the "14 years" since Kristin left, and of course EJ was born... What a mess up IMO.
    Anybody notice, all of a sudden our Jenn lost her frompy hair and cloth, and is evenly "orange" with Dr. Love.
    Chrissi not so much Sami becoming a Grandma, but Marlena becoming A "GG". If she not already in Culture Shock about Kristin, the GG thing could send her totally into orbit.
    I think Jenn's welcome back to the hospital was a bit over done, this makes it two returns in just a few weeks, and already, claiming she is sooooo busy, she is sitting around in Dr. Love's living room, busy, busy...
    Anyone notice, how Jenn keeps staring in close up,.. at Dr. Dan's lips, and him back, wow, what self control....from both of them..
    Should be a SL for a while between Gaby/Nick and Will/Sonny.
    It might just be, that the Baby will become, and family makes Three someday. Will will have his child, and no need for him and Sonny to go others routes someday, to become parents...
    Wide open here..
    What can I say, Greg Vaughan, what a hunk, EJ you might have to share with Eric for my affections... LOL

    Florence you rock. That was a typo. I fixed.

    Yeah babies having babies, Holding! Course I think Sami is maybe 20 years older or something. Hehehe I love soaps. No other shows give us stuff like this to giggle over.

    Wow Marlena being a GG - right on the money. Didn't even consider. She had enough issues with Will calling her Grandma! She'll plotz.

    Yeah I agree on Jenn's hospital return but I have to say it was awfully nice of them and yes, Jenn and Dan were sharing some big heat today. I don't think it'll be long before they are together.

    Yeah Eric's nice. Very kind.

    I noticed that right after Hope tried on the pilgrim hat, Dr. Love (Daniel) was at the door. Wondered if there was supposed to be a little moment there between them going on. Days lots of fun lately...loving to watch Kristen interact with everyone, especially EJ. Nice that they have us guessing if she is reformed or not.

    Chrissi, can I rock some more, says "Florence"
    and I know you meant Florentine, actually My dear departed Mother's name, when I could not use the name I wanted to use, because way back it said My name was already used....and it was me trying to use my same name...
    But Chrissi, let's say, your stuff rocks, I enjoy you and Matt's comments.
    Nothing wrong with having a little fun.... see ya, Florence,,, No, No, No, Florentine.....
