    John's plan working? (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Deconstructing "DOOL" from April 22 - 26 :

    This week both Maggie and Abe stuck their noses deep into other people’s business, Anne too vowed that this wasn’t the end of her tirade over "Her Royal Hortonness," everyone seemed to be eating cupcakes and doughnuts, and the men of Salem shed their shirts and gyrated onstage. Technically this was a four day week, because Monday’s episode was included in last week’s blog...

    A size of crazy.
    Father Eric caught Nicole and Vargas, Vargas, Vargas defiling the rectory office. He had issues getting the picture out of his mind, he says, because he’s worried that Nicole will make yet another mistake and cause herself more heartache but it’s more likely that he was picturing himself replacing Vargas.

    Hokey: Nicole to Eric, "I want to be friends forever."

    Topless dancers.
    When men watch women strip they’re very subdued about it but put a topless guy in front of a girl and watch the screaming begin. Why? Because women rarely get to see the goods. It was fun to see Brady, Rafe, and Daniel doing something so out of character. Daniel (Shawn Christian) is a natural dancer. Who knew? They were fun to watch and looked hot... even though they barely took anything off. Somehow in the midst of the dancing there was a storyline. Everyone forgot what it was about.

    The question of the week... Who strutted his stuff best? And when will they be going back to this club and taking the guys who didn’t get to show it off the first time? Do Chicago strip clubs not show the Full Monty? Pity.

    If you don’t want to hear the answer, it’s best not to ask.
    Sami had to soldier through watching her brother and ex-husband do a little half-nakey jig for the crazed undersexed women of Chicago and Salem. Afterward, Kristen enjoyed making both Sami and Rafe uncomfortable by pointing out the big sparkly ring Eej gave his intended. She’s not winning any points as the sis-in-law to be. Rafe was kind about the engagement but Sami couldn’t leave well enough alone and being... well... Sami, she hungered for the approval of her ex-hubby and seemed surprised when she didn’t get it. Duh. Most people in Salem will react the same so she’ll need to grow a thick skin and ask Brady how he handles the backlash.

    (NBC Universal Inc.)
    It’s impossible to buy that Jennifer suddenly has moxie.
    It’s annoying when the whiny spineless character ‘suddenly’ does a 180 and gets a backbone for no apparent reason and that’s what happened with Jennifer.

    Jennifer's room was noticeably bland to reflect her and Stripper Man's relationship. Matt always thought she would have had a bed made of dolls and I've always pictured Holly Hobbie drapes and flowered wallpaper.

    Alas, there’s still no word on where he is but we got wind from Hope that Bo’s return to Salem has been delayed. Ciara had a bit of a meltdown after hearing this and who can blame her? She’s tired of her parents leaving her and oh boy is she going to be a mess when she grows up.

    It’s still difficult to find it believable that she would be so concerned about the photo of Kristen and Sy, especially considering she didn’t even know the woman in the photo was Kristen until she saw her with Uncle Brady. As well, she almost told Hope and Brady that she knew a secret about Kristen but what’s the secret? If she doesn’t know who Sy is, the photo should be meaningless to her, non? Seems like the writers are reaching here.

    John’s plan.
    It appears as though John’s plan includes keeping his distance from Marlena in order to lure Kristen in and get her to do or admit something that’ll get Brady away from her. So far it has brought out Brady's insecurity though it could still backfire. The big question is why isn't Marlena raging on John by now? It’s beyond annoying at this point that she hasn’t gone off at him. It’s long overdue.

    Sami and Will couldn't be more obvious buttering up Stefano in order to get his help in doing something about Nick. It's hard to believe that Sami, an old pro, is now so terrible at covert operations.

    Read Matt’s DOOL Musings. A taste: "If all of the strip clubs in Chicago are this lame, no wonder only one manages to stay open past 9:00 PM."

    I didn’t mind when Abe was butting into Cameron’s business because I think he wanted to help him but Maggie is another thing. She runs around town telling everyone what they should do. But so does Jennifer and Abby!
    I didn’t like the scene with Jennifer giving Parker some trains and then taking everything up to J.J.’s room. I really don’t like what the writers have done. If Chloe comes back will Parker not want her and run to Jennifer? Don’t like that story line. Jennifer plays the pitiful person that can’t take care of herself but she really does have a backbone just think back to what she did when she was a reporter with Jack. It is just an act so everyone thinks she is so good. I’m still confused about J.J.’s age, isn’t he about the same as Ciara or maybe a couple years older?
    Really don’t like Vargas and concerned about this story. What is he holding over Nick that he has to give Vargas all his money? Did I miss something? Is Vargas crazy enough to hurt Gabi?
    I’m waiting for Brady to see the real Kristen, I hope it is soon. Did Ciara really give Brady the picture? I wonder! Drag this story out a little longer.
    The stripping was pathetic! Dr. Dan did a little better but in jeans and just moving your hips from side-to-side? I wouldn’t give them any money for that. And how did Cameron get his loans paid off if they gave all the money to the hospital?
    I don’t think it is right that Jennifer can come and go as she pleases and give Ann a promotion then take it away and poof, Jennifer is back so Ann is demoted again. They need to change that story or let Ann win at least once.
    I liked the interaction with Rafe and Sami about her ring. He did good and loved he just walked away. I could tell that it bothered Sami. I still think she loves Rafe but I don’t want them together anymore. Bring in someone nice for Rafe!
    Every time Sami does things, she gets caught. She is going to go through Nick’s room and look for evidence against him; right like that is going to happen.
    I hope they are negotiating with Peter to come back as Bo. If they are bring in new characters why can’t they bring Peter back?

    Good post Doris JJ...
    I so agree about Maggie, Jenn and Abby. What's up with Jenn anyway, she goes from meager Mouse to roaring tiger, don't like her anymore at all...
    John used to call Maggie the Town BusyBody... way back when, looks like he still right. It always bugs me, when Jenn can just come and go as she pleases, act the way she did in the hospital, when she "dumped" Dr. Lust, and nothing ever happens to her.
    Almost can't blame good old Ann for having an attitude about the Holy Horton's..
    Jenn being a "Mom" to Parker, give me a break, she hasn't been a Mother to her own little boy JJ in how many years now. You are right, JJ was still in diapers when Ciara was born, remember Patrick Lockhart changing them, then of course Hope getting prego, thinking for a while that the baby could belong to Lockhart... but not, it was Bo's.
    Also JJ being about 1 year old, Abby and her best friend then, Chelsea did graduate from High school together..
    If they want to age the kids, they should do it for Ciara and JJ about the same... that would work for me... LOL
    And of course, giving all the money the Strippers "earned" to the hospital to cover Cam's tracks...
    does he have to do more stripping in order to pay off his "Loan",
    and is it really a Loan that involves his Mother Celeste... to many questions yet for me.
    Thank God all the guys have Day Jobs, I would not have given my Dollars to them... I am more of a EJ "Girl". Now Bo could have floated my boat doing The Dance......bring Him back, Bo had "IT" that most of the other guys (of course EJ does) don't have, but again that is just my opinion...
    Doris, I enjoy reading your posts, and Chrissi I enjoy your stuff.

    Watching John is getting more boring by the minute, give the guy some stuff to do, instead of walking around in that boring Suit, from the Square to the Coffe shop, stop at the Chowder mill and then back to make the rounds again...Pathetic, and where is even more boring Marlena... This SL is dragging on to long, IMO
