    A taunting we will go. (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Deconstructing "DOOL" from January 14-18:

    A lot happened this week so let's get right to it.

    Gabi’s Fairytale Wedding.
    I must confess that I was floating on a cloud of schadenfreude (Ironically, I wrote this before Marlena said it on Thursday’s show!) when Gabi’s "perfect fairytale wedding" was broken up by Chad. They should have gone to the JP instead of being big ole hypocrites and taking their lies to the church but whatever. This is a lot of stress for pregnant Gabi. Could she lose the baby?

    Sami was quite possibly the biggest hypocrite she has ever been in this situation. Gabi didn’t have to drug Will to sleep with her and she told him she was pregnant right away. We all know that Sami did this twice and dragged it on for years. One would think she would sit back and ask questions instead of being so quick to judge Gabi’s motives but we know how self-absorbed she is so she was likely thinking that Gabi’s reasons for hiding the truth are identical to her own.

    Officer Hernandez, much like Sami, was so quick to jump to conclusions. Catholic Officer Hernandez belted Chad in a church as any good upstanding police officer would do and then Detective Hope Brady of course arrested Chad, not Officer Hernandez but Chad, for disturbing the peace but not Officer Hernandez for assaulting a civilian when the officer threw the first punch. And this is how Hope claims she was trying to save Rafe’s career. How would that have worked? Dirty cops. Classic "Days" writing! It didn’t stop Monday. The rest of the week, the cop continued inattention to minor illegalities by encouraging the fine upstanding citizen and psychiatrist extraordinaire Doctor Marlena Evans to wear a wire in order to catch Kristen in her lies about how she is using Brady. Course it didn’t work because Kristen is a DiMera and probably smelled the scheme coming through Marlena’s skin when she stepped off the elevator on her floor.

    EJill sighting. (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Another DiMera town pariah, Chad, was the big talk around town. Sure it wasn’t Chad’s place to out Gabi and Nick’s lies and blah blah blah but truthfully, I just don’t care in this situation. At this point, I can’t wait for Nick and Gabi to get what’s coming to them. I’m even cheering for Chad. Are you? Vote: Are you rooting for Chad or not? Good thing he has the DiMera’s backing him because Nick’s a formidable opponent. He’s really been showing his true colours with his obsession with Chelsea... I mean Gabi.

    New great-grandmother Kate kicking Nick while he was down was no surprise but what kind of business woman is she if she doesn’t put her emotions aside and delay any big decisions until after she had a chance to think things over and learn the facts?

    Sami’s merry men:
    Sami and Rafe acted alike in one respect. Each jumped to defend someone before hearing the entire story. No wonder these two can’t get it together. Rafe went into shock after finally seeing “Sami’s true colours." That’s got to hurt. Enter EJ. He’s there to pick up the pieces and didn’t have to scheme to do it. He should send Gabi and Nick a fruit basket.

    There was a rare EJill sighting before Will gathered the courage up to apologize and try to explain his betrayal. It's a pretty big lie but I have faith that Sonny will forgive Will. Will thinks things are tough now. Wait until Nick blackmails Will with what he heard Will and Lucas discussing. Oh boy.

    And that was just Monday...

    Marlena’s marriage took more of a nosedive at the end of the week.
    John can’t just move to a guest bedroom, nor can he just move into a hotel for a while. No he has to leave the city to get away from Marlena because she has trust issues with him. Ouch. Doesn’t he have trust issues with her? Shouldn’t he stick around and try to work things out? Isn't he worried that Stefano will strike if he leaves his Doc alone for five minutes?

    Kate wants to out Chloe as a prostitute in order to what... call her an unfit mother?
    How would that make her unfit? I like how Kate’s reasoning for selling her body were oh so pristine yet Chloe’s reasons were self-serving. Ridiculous. Kate’s kids turned out fine for having a mother who sold her body when they weren’t around. I’m not sure Kate can touch her unless Daniel makes a big stink if he finds out Kate was the blackmailer. It’s not like she has Stefano or Victor to back her up on this one! I've got to say Chloe and Anne are more devious together than I had imagined. I'm enjoying the drama.

    The big pay off.
    It was revealed (we knew!) that Kristen paid off the muggers to beat on a Black but we didn't know it was for John, not Brady. Kristen actually looks as though she's starting to have some feeling for Brady.

    Burning question of the week: Why was Roman at Kristen's place when Hope said he was out of town? Is Kristen's getting romantic with him as part of her plan to take everything from Marlena?

    Take a look at Matt’s SOF Musings. A taste: "Nicole finally broke it to Chloe that she'd schtupped Daniel. After some name calling, they both had to accept that they were miserable washed-up sex trade workers in love with a slutty doctor who didn't want either of them."

    I don't like any of the DiMera's so whatever happens to them I cheer for the person that did it. I don't think Chad was justified, it was pure revenge. And IMO Rafe wasn't a cop at that time but a brother. If someone did that to me, my brothers would take them apart. I could be mistaken but wasn't it Sami that insisted on a big church wedding and Hope was helping?
    I really wanted Sami and Rafe together but again Saint Sami has to attack before she knows what is going on. She does deserve to be with EJ and I will cheer when he breaks her heart. Besides I'm really tired of the back and forth with EJ then Rafe.
    I think that Brady will look into that note at least I hope so. I also hope he finds out she paid someone to jump him "John".
    I had to laugh when Kate was doing the same thing and picking on Chloe. I'm hoping that Daniel is the one that gets her back.
    Not liking what they are doing to Nick, the writers need to change his character. I hope they show soon that omethig really back happened in prison and now he is geared to protect his self and others at any cost.
    And please take Saint Melissa and and make her normal again!

    Thanks so much for your feedback, Doris JJ. It's great to see the other side of the fence. Loved reading them.

    This week focused mostly on the baby drama with Will being in the center of it with Sonny, Gabi and Nick... and that's all you have to say about Will? A tiny paragraph near the end titled WilSon... and the first sentence is about Will and EJ. Seriously? That's ridiculous.

    I often ignore storylines and characters for weeks if I don't have room to write them in or if I simply have nothing to say either way and I'm sure it'll continue to happen. I often do write about WilSon though. Anyone who reads my blogs can attest to that. I don't 'ship' any character or couple because of the writing issues I have with the show so you're going to see both sides of the story when you read my blogs! If you read my back blogs you'll actually see that I constantly blather on about WilSon and always in a positive way except lately I'm not happy with how they're not writing the way I'd like to see them write for Sonny.

    Oh the EJill stuff is my way of poking fun at myself. Again if you don't read these columns weekly you'll miss out on all of that. I always said EJ and Will made a good couple (not the dating kind) and it's all in fun. Don't take this stuff so seriously! I never do.

    Chrissi, please let me apologize for my blog, I could read the anger in it and it wasn't aimed at you. I'm just tired of all the evil from the DiMera's and they NEVER pay for it and then to read that the Brady's have broken the law or Rafe and I just wonder why is it okay for the DiMera's to kidnap, erase peoples minds, make a mother think her child is dead and it is cheered but if a Brady has to go around the law to get a bad person they are high and mighty. I know it is a soap so just wanted to say I do live in the real world.
    Women think EJ is handsome and just out of this world and he does nothing for me but make me mad everytime he is in a scene which is almost every day.
    And yes you do talk about Wilson and EJill. It throws me off because I'm not sure who your talking about. I always wonder if another character is coming on board until I realize you have joined names together. I'm not up with all the jargon; it comes with being old, not as old as dirt but close. Again sorry!
