    So easy to mock. (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Deconstructing "DOOL" from April 29 – May 3:

    Yep.

    Arguing with his pardner.
    John’s become so bored with his storyline that he has taken to faking some sort of southern accent when arguing with Roman? Usually it’s Roman who favours the John Wayne drawl.

    Ciara’s secret.
    Ciara and Kristen’s chat was bizarre. Ciara is a strange little kid. She’s kind of fun, yet weird. It’s unusual to see a child get her own storyline before a vet like Hope. There’s something off about Ciara being so obsessive with Kristen and that freaking photo – and by the way, who took the photo? Sy’s skeevy pal? Sy has a brain? Or did Stefano's boy RicardBo kill Sy?

    Liberating themselves.
    Both Kristen and John confessed their master plans. They both want Brady to walk in on them in bed together. We can all agree with Stefano and Victor, who think it’s a sick idea. Victor had a good point when he asked if John could do something less drastic like killing Kristen. After all, John plans on losing his son and the love of his life anyway. Hmm. Is John an idiot or is his plan brilliant? Vote!

    A dancer he is not.
    EJ may be many things. He can be charming and devilish but the boy dances like my mum, especially with the "tsst tsst tsst." He should never do that again. It does make sense that he'd want to disown my Stefano after being disowned the way he was last year. Who can blame him? It was horrible. Will Justin agree to it? Will they succeed?

    Worst line: EJ to Sami, "You're really enthusiastic tonight." Ew. During sex, don't talk.

    The Three Stooges.
    Will, EJ, and Sami actually trust Stefano to make the evidence against Will disappear? None of us trusts him! Everything Stefano does comes with strings attached. They’re not this dense so why write them this way?

    A taunting we will go.
    It’s been a cross between fun and tense watching EJ and Rafe snipe at one another. Rafe’s got that cocky smirk and lately those good comebacks while EJ’s got the DiMera way of being able to hide his emotions.

    Dan and Jenn:
    Daniel giving away his and Jenn’s dinner tickets to Abby and Cam was a really sweet thing to do. Afterward, he, Parker, and Jenn gathered under Alice's giant doily from the 1950s which goes well with Jenn's bland outfits, which she plans around her bland bedroom décor, which allows for her bland personality to shine right through. Yep.


    Murder mystery coming? (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Filler:
    Rafe and Nick’s meeting at the Coffee Bean was pointless. Kate meeting Rafe there after Nick took off wasn’t necessary since nothing was said, and Eric’s meeting with Abe at the pub was sort of senseless, too. There’s something to be said for the half hour soaps. There’s no room for filler!

    Kate’s gift.
    Can they be any more obvious that there’s a murder mystery on the way? I haven’t seen this in the spoilers but why else would Kate buy Sami a gun? It was an interesting conversation. Almost as if Kate cared. Of course there are now two sets of fingerprints on the gun. Why didn’t Sami tell EJ about it and is Nick long for this world?

    Oh Kate.
    Kate dumped Rafe for maybe the fifth time this year. He’s so laid back that it’s almost as if he doesn’t mind how juvenile it seems. Sure, we get it. She’s worried Stefano will do something to Rafe. Maybe he will, but he’s not the only one after Rafe. EJ’s insecurity is getting the better of him.

    Stop. Thief!
    Why did Sami steal Nick’s money? Spite? None of us have a problem with her and Sonny taking the confession because we want Will to be a hands-on father to his daughter-to-be, but stealing the money was too much. For all she knows, it could be for Arianna’s future and if Sami cares about her grandchild-to-be, she should return it.

    Suddenly Vargas, Vargas, Vargas has lost his appeal. Maybe.
    Still like Vargas? Such melodrama with Vargas "threatening" to tell Father Eric that Nicole has a thing for him. Who cares if the big bad Vargas spills the beans? It’s not a matter of life or death here. Another thought. Do you think Nick will tell Vargas that Sami has his money or will he deal with her on his own? Could Sonny and Will may be right and soon they'll actually have peace?

    Gabi’s positive thinking?
    It’s not easy to figure out what’s going on in her noggin. Is it pregnancy brain or does she really not see Nick has some major issues? Does she really think after the baby’s born that things will magically improve or is this wishful thinking? I couldn't stand not knowing so we went to the source. Find out what Gabi really thinks in today's interview with Camila Banus. She even teases about what's to come a few times, such as how scared of Nick Gabi will become and what happens when he tells her about his scar.

    I know this will get a lot of razzing, but I have to admit, I've been feeling for Nick lately.

    Dirty minds?
    Did anyone else think Abigail’s starvation for dessert was a euphemism for sex?

    Vote in the 8th Annual Sudzies Awards.

    Read Matt’s DOOL Musings. A taste: "I have to admit that I've grown to like evil Nick in spite of myself. The show has gone so far out of the way to make him unsympathetic that it's surprising they don't have him drowning puppies and kicking Gabba in the baby oven. Considering how outnumbered by obnoxious enemies he is, he manages to become likable simply by contrast." Agreed.

    Daniel and Jen fake- bland- name it what you will- just get them off!!!
    Kate*s gift- spiteful much! Well it was all good while she played queen of the DiMera principality- oh,l get it- it*s cos of Allie!?
    Kate and Rafe- yawn!

    Love EJ both devilish!

    Vargas- just plain villain- shame-ah well-

    Samantha and envelope with cash- I found it to be a devilish act by her just to make Nick go nuts and sweat and it worked. Although not for long yet he deserves it!

    Cam and Abi- please make it stop! Robots have more chemistry! Chad is the one for her! He actually really loves her!!!

    Ciara will be a handfull when she grows up!

    Kristen and John's plan- there will be wrenches put in works I hope otherwise - John would rather see his son completely destroyed- crazy same as Kristen!!!

    So far- hm

    I think it was great that Sami "impulsively grabbed" the money because that is exactly what the old Sami would have done. I love that Sami gets to be a better version of her old scheming self and not trying to be someone she's not for the man that she's with. It might not have been the best idea, but it was definitely a "Sami idea".
    I'm kind of thinking (and hoping) that Vargus will be the recipient of the deadly bullet from Sami's new gift. I'm not sure exactly who will be the one that pulls the trigger, but I'm thinking it might be Nicole or better yet, Gabi. I think once we get all the details of what happened to Nick in prison maybe he can be redeemed. Blake is such a great actor, I really don't want to see him him sent away to the big house again, LOL.
    I don't mind that EJ wants to take Stefano down, I just want he and Sami to do it together!!!! I don't, however want to see EJ do anything to Rafe because of Johnny or anyone else. I'd like for the writers to just let that go and let EJAMI shine as the super couple that they are.

    About Nick, it won't be long before Nick will become the victim and every Mother and Grandmother will be rooting for him to be saved... Have a feeling the Sonny, Will and Nick will sooner or later end up on the same side, against prob. Vargas, whatever....
    Let's face it, Nick is a Horton and he will be redeemed, and if Nick is that great actor he has been so far, he will pull it of just perfectly, and everybody will end up liking him and be on his side... and Gaby, Nick, Will, Sonny and little Ariana Grace will live happily ever after.... Ha, Ha...it's a soap.

    Daniel and Jenn, give me a break, yes stjarna.... bland, fake, I agree... no chemistry... no excitement, nothing. Two potted.. hand wringing... potted plants....beware...

    I do enjoy EJ and Sami, no matter what/or how stupid a things she does...(taking Nick's money), he does not start preaching, what's done is done, he supports her and they move on from there.

    If anybody ever should take down Stefano, I agree, it should be EJ, specially after Stefano, (whom I like to watch so much) disowned him because of "Blood".
    I have a feeling that Stefano/Jo Moscolo might be ready to sooner or later leave the show, due to his age, but I would really like to see a very "Poetic" send off for this Great Character....one of the Best.... and to have his son EJ be
    responsible for it, would be great... I like to see EJ make a better future for his children.

    Rafe and EJ's encounter... well Rafe still is his smug snarky, smirky self, and EJ, don't know why he would even give Rafe the time of day, unless he is still just a smitchen insecure about that guy.
    I read in the spoilers, that Johnny will tell EJ, that he liked it better living with Rafe....
    that just does not sit right ... why would the writers write something like that, it does not sound like something Johnny would say,,, all he wanted was for his Mom and Dad to be together... so writers what is up with that.
    About EJ and his moves... let's not be to hasty and judge him... give him a stage, take off his cloth, a let him show us his moves... it we all might find out, He is NO doing anybody's Mom's move....
    For me, EJ has more sexappeal in his little finger, than all the rest of the guys combined... but... don't get mad,,, that is just My opinion....

    Well since the spoiler section every week has been closed for repair.....
    I am going to post more on here daily, wish others would follow me....
    to bad, when I tried last year to post on chrissi's page, I could not use My Reg. Post name from the spoiler site, had to use my Mother's name....

    ejamiCrazy, I agree with you, liked your post....
    EJami, go.... give us some good and exciting SL's...

    Of course Abby's yearn for Dessert, was meant... I would like to shed my virginity...finally....but I would rather see her with Chad....
    Cameron, I am not sure about this guy yet... his "Loans",,, where is Celeste.. she could ask somebody for the money, even Stefano, after all they had Lexie...maybe Cameron is Stefano's son also....
    Surprise me....

    I guess it's because Jennifer's character has always been so closely tied to Alice Horton (and she lives in her house too!) that I just can't bring myself to dismiss her character. I wonder...would we be considering Alice bland by today's standards too? Guess I'm the minority, but I kind of ended up rooting for her and Dr. Dan.

    I never understood why the old writers had Stephano disown EJ, supposedly over not being his real son. He has adopted children for crying out loud. That was way out-of-character. He and EJ were so close. So kinda hate to see it revived now. Maybe when the moment of betrayal arrives, EJ won't be able to turn on his father. Would love to see the Dimeara being inseparable in the end!

    Loved the comment from Matt about rubbing Stefano’s belly and won’t finish the comment. Made me laugh!

    I don’t like what they are doing with John and Marlena. I understand not telling her because she can’t keep a secret but it is hard watching her. Maybe she should go out with Roman and let John see her. And they have made Ciara’s character a little on the bratty side a few times, but it would be nicer if they gave a story before they did this. We now assume it is because she misses her father but they could have brought that up first.
    I’m really tired of the whole Kristen and John story, just get it moving. Why do they drag things out so long and then the end product is boring or doesn’t make sense. Now John and Kristen will be in the dungeon and they just happen to run into each other? How did John get in and why would she be wondering around in the dungeon?

    I noticed the writers for Days didn’t get nominated for an Emmy, does anyone wonder why?

    I’m a fan of Nick and I really want the writers to improve on this dumb story they now have. I really hope they don’t kill him off but with the gun Sami has, and I’m sure another 10 people will have guns; it could be Rafe, Nick or Vargas that is eliminated. I’m not a fan of EJ and never have been. If he takes over the DiMira empire, what is to say that EJ won’t become his father. In my opinion he is partway there now. Something is going to happen to Rafe, you can guess the person behind it. And Sami, that never does anything wrong, steals money from Nick and hiding behind EJ. To bad she can’t be caught for stealing and arrested. She needs to be taken down some, but she always does what she wants and never mind the other people.
    Don’t care for Jennifer, Daniel, Abby, Chad or Cameron. If they left, I wouldn’t miss them but I do wonder about Parker’s attachment to Jennifer and what happens when Chole comes back?
