    Next pairing? (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Deconstructing "DOOL" from May 27- 31:

    Short week since "Days" was preempted Monday. The current storylines have wrapped up; the show was on fire mid-week, and we’re all wondering what comes next. Here are a few thoughts...

    Kristen’s epiphany.
    Kristen returned to Salem with revenge on the mind. She didn’t expect to fall in love and once again she was dumped practically at the altar when Brady learned she played him. Knowing she did this to herself didn’t detract from me feeling sorry for her... in between gales of laughter at her crawling around on her hands and knees...Eileen’s an acting goddess. Any bets on how quickly Kristen will become obsessed?

    Soaps.com spoke with Eileen Davidson today about Kristen. Find out what she says about what comes next!

    Do you remember? This exact same scenario at the DiMera mansion played out between Stephanie Johnson and Nathan Horton in his apartment in January of 2011 when she too begged him not to leave her. Salem has a lot of desperate women.

    What comes next for Jarlena?
    Now that Brady has left Kristen, John somehow thinks Marlena will fall back into his arms. How cracked can this guy get? In addition to the many ways he has screwed up his relationship with her over the past several months, winding up in Kristen’s bed no matter what the reason is not going to get Doc falling all over herself to reunite. It’ll be interesting to see what the writers have John do in order to win her back – if he can.

    A curiosity.
    What time does Father Eric go to bed at night? He woke up after having a bout of insomnia and went over to the pub where he spoke with Johnny, a little kid whose bedtime hadn’t even come yet! Speaking of Johnny, it was cute and rather observant of the little tyke to note that Nicole looks at Eric the way she used to look at EJ. That whole scene in the rectory where Eric sort of asked (not really) Nicole about her feelings for him was rather strange. He didn’t even mention what Johnny said. Nic just jumped the gun and denied caring for him which is very telling. To us. Eric’s either dense or likes to dabble in denial himself. I like to think he’s in denial. He seemed to be a little off when Nicole told him she'd be at Brady's beck and call for the time being. And we all know what that means. If Brady falls off the wagon, we'll likely see a Bricole reunion.


    What happens now? (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Nick’s redemption:
    As we suspected, Nick was raped and beat repeatedly by Jensen while in prison. Nick denied it, repressed it, (likely wondered about his own sexuality) and equated same-sex rape with homosexuality. Now that Will attempted to save his life and he’s starting to face his demons, it looks as though Nick’s been redeemed. What happens next? Loads of therapy is my guess but as unhappy as he and Gabi are, does Nick have any feelings for her or are they done for good? Do you want Nick and Gabi to one day work things out? Vote!

    WilSon’s romance:
    Will and Sonny have come a long way since Sonny admitted he didn’t want children. These two bonded over Sonny being the one to help deliver Arianna and over how Arianna looks like Will. It was heart-warming. A Twitter follower commented, "The dissimilarity between happy WilSon and unhappy Nabi is very striking!"

    There is still time to vote in the 7th Annual Sudzies Awards.

    Read this week’s Matt Musings on DOOL. A taste: "He analyzed himself better than Marlena ever could and told Gabbah that what he felt for her was likely just a desperate illusion. She was confused about whether that meant he actually loved her or not."

    This week on Days of our Lives, the best episodes were Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday just because of Will and Sonny. Even though Will spent most of his time sleeping after undergoing major surgery due to being shot while trying to rescue Nick from Jensen, Sonny was very attentive to his boyfriend. I wish Will could have heard all the wonderful things his family and his boyfriend was saying about him. I am so happy he finally was able to meet his daughter, and was so surprised that it was Nick that brought her to him. I thought sure it would be Sami or Sonny. I was glad that Nick finally was honest with Gabi and admitted what happened to him in prison, and also what he has been doing to Will (blackmail) and Sonny (bullying). I hope Nick can get the help he needs due to the ordeal he suffered while in prison.

    Good shows this week...
    How ironic, weird John now holds the secret about Kristin's True Feelings for Brady, his son....
    I hope that Kristin will fight to get Brady back, after all, her feelings for Him.. is what finally set her free from seeking revenge.. She chose love, and we the viewers and John and Kristin know that..

    Nick and Nicole and some others in Salem have done so much more worse things, and they were able to redeem themselves, so why not Kristin... However, before all that happens, I am looking for good SL's, and ups and downs before that happens.. Brady and Kristin look good together on screen,
    just like EJ and Sami..
    Those are the couples that make the show interesting for Me..
    Will it ever come out about Gaby and her Misdeeds, .. people got hurt and killed, properties destroyed, Gaby did just as bad, if not more so.. than Kristin did to Marlena...
    Some of us go way back and remember all the bad things some of the Salem characters have done, and then been whitewashed/redeemed, whatever you want to call it.

    Well, we all knew, that Nick Fallon/Horton would be redeemed, LOL. What a great character/actor to watch on screen.
    On some pols, Will and Sonny have replaced EJ and Sami in the No. 1 Spot.. Dool should be proud, because this Gay SL is one of the very best done, that I have seen. Bravo to the writers, and of course the actors, that made this happen.

    Marlena and John, what can I say, they are so annoying anymore, specially John. It is getting harder and harder to watch him. All he does anymore, is run around the Salem Mall/Square, his face twitching in every direction, and trying to Save His Son in the most weirdest of ways, give me a break, sleeping with Kristin..
    When Brady ever gets his phone back, it will show John's call to him, asking him to come to the Hotel room..
    Kristin never pushed the buttom on her phone to get Brady to come.
    That should be a small proof, among other things, that she had had dropped Her Revenge Idea, to have Brady/Marlena see her in Bed with John..
    Right now, Kristin is one of the best, most interesting characters on the show...and I hope she will stay in Salem for a very long time. Brady and her are just starting to get good, this is the beginning of a whole new chapter in their lives.
    Stefano these days, it's almost as if he has a big bubble around him, I like to see him get involved with Kate again, give them a great SL,... Kate/Rafe/Stefano..
    I am so bored with the JJ/Dan/Jenn SL, same old same old.
    Have Chloe come back, and make her a family with Dan and their son Parker..

    P.S. Chrissi, I enjoy reading you comments every Friday.

    Just read, that Chloe will be back, late summer.... or so.
    Hope she is all well again, and ready to take her son Parker away from this crazy "Jenn" etc. life.
    Like to see, Chloe, Dan and Parker become a family, we could use a stable family in this town.
    Dan and Jenn, never did it for me...there is nothing real there anymore, to much back and forth, give me a break.. and Parker always in the middle.
