    New set! (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Deconstructing "DOOL" from July 22 - 26:

    This week was filled with juicy, yummy drama.

    The Sami Show.
    Poor Abe had to arrest Sami at St. Luke’s Academy during Bishop White’s reception which was humiliating enough for everyone, but true to form, Sami made it even worse by making a spectacle of herself with a speech. The words ‘go quietly’ don’t compute. Nicole pointed this out to Father Eric. Though she was right, he didn’t need to hear it and she’s no angel either like Brady pointed out later in the week, so she probably would have been better off snickering at Sami’s self-created mess as any good Sami hater would have done and left it at that.

    Sami called the video of her attacking Bernardi a set-up. True though it’s actually valid evidence and nobody forced her to attack the man. If she thought things through before acting, as EJ has said, she wouldn’t be in any of the predicaments she gets herself in. Though Adrienne’s reasons for handing it over to the cops weren’t without malice she did the right thing at least morally speaking and now is the one everyone’s ‘hating on’. If Abigail turned the video in would anyone hate her for it? It’s important evidence and there’s no love lost between Sami and Adrienne so it was no surprise she did this. Sami would have done the same thing in her shoes and I bet any Salemite who hates Sami or the DiMeras would have turned the video in. If Adrienne thought this through she would have asked the snarky DA to keep her name out of it.

    Sami hasn’t any evidence as of yet to support her innocence. I think that’s what makes it such a compelling storyline. It’s nice to see the two sides going at it which makes for great drama and both sides have decent arguments. How will she get out of this? William coming clean to Justin about shooting EJ should help but they also need to find that razor and to get Stefano to admit on tape that he sent Bernardi to cut off Rafe’s penis. Ew...

    Possible 'Susan' return! (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Adrienne throwing stones at glass houses.
    People keep pointing out Adrienne’s imperfections. She has a past, her family’s not perfect, her husband is a Kiriakis, so everyone thinks she should stop throwing stones but everyone judges, no matter what skeletons are in their closet. She’s no different. At least she took her time, struggling to make the decision before submitting that attack tape as evidence to the DA. She made attempts to talk to Justin, Sami and then Sonny about the video but nobody would listen. That’s mostly Adrienne’s doing. Does Sonny really need protection? Victor seems to think so. Maybe this whole thing is foreshadowing.

    The scene of EJ stalking and frightening Adrienne was a nice touch. Very intense. I think Adrienne peed her pants. I wonder if she’ll tell Justin and if EJ really will retaliate.

    Cameron and Gabi.
    Again they snuck in a scene with these two making small talk and their chemistry shone but is Nick really out of the way for good even though he and Gabi annulled their marriage? You know how the writers enjoy their love triangles!

    The ‘let’s make Brady’s life crappy’ song and dance continues.
    It’s not going to be easy to watch these two reunite only for the truth about Kristen drugging and having sex with Brady’s priest brother to eventually come out and cause Brady more devastation. Still, somehow I’m enjoying being taken along for the ride.

    I can't believe they're considering having Kristen put on that old Susan Banks disguise in order to stop Mason Ventura from finding out who poisoned Father Eric. Hilarious!

    Nicole and 'Jenny'.
    The ‘slice of life’ scene between these two discussing the book club and current events was nice. It was good to see Nicole reminding Jennifer that if she made it through Chloe and her vying for Dan’s attentions then she can make it through anything. Look out Theresa.

    Resident bad girl.
    Theresa’s got her sights set on Dr. Dan. Someone should tell her all she needs to do now is have him perform surgery on her and he’s hers. He won't notice her unless that happens!

    Is she really that 'troubled' or is Theresa undercover for Abe? Vote and let know who you think the narc is at Salem High School. Then read our interview with Jen Lilley, who explains Theresa's MO.

    Guess which long time actress is staying? Kristian Alfonso renews contract Days Of Our Lives.

    The DA seems to not like Sami. I hope they find the razor and bring it in. The DA could have waited until they were done with the ceremony before pulling Sami out.
    I wasn't happy when they put Brady and Kristen together again. Is she still going to release the video or will Brady find it by mistake. We all know that she will get to the room first and wipe it clean. But since it is a hotel wouldn't the room already be clean and hopefully a few times since her and Eric were there.
    I know what the right thing is but since Adrinne hates Sami I don't think she hesitated that long. She could have shut up Sami but she really didn't want to. I think she did what she wanted to do.
    Loved the scene with Rafe and Gabi and the baby. I hope they bring him back.
    I have a question, I have read on another site and in a magazine that Chandler Massey (Will) contract is expiring at the end of this year and he said he loved working at DOOL and hoped to stay. Now Chad is leaving the show, is this his idea or the producers. Now we have John not filming, Bo is off somewhere, Marlena appears for 5 minutes once a week the same as Roman and Lucas. What is going on? They really need to keep these other characters and write some decent stories for them. I'm tired of EJ and Sami all the time. I know a lot of people love them but we really need more things to watch then the two of them on the desk, over the chess table or on that skanky sofa.

    Yeah she was pretty snarky to her. Hopefully she's on the up and up though.

    Yeah I don't know about Bristen. They've chemistry but Kristen's only going to hurt him. Somehow it will come out I think but not sure how.

    That was really sweet, nice to see Rafe back at least for a while.

    Chandler actually said during the Emmys that he would like to leave the show once his contract is up to go back to school but that he thinks it'd be okay if they recast. Casey - I actually don't know. I'll ask him but it feels like it was his decision from something he said on Twitter.

    Gah John missing - I just don't know. The studio doesn't talk about it and he has no publicist. I asked him on Twitter and he did not respond.

    I too am tired of Sami and EJ all the time. I like them and like all characters but prefer a balance. This week we had more Sami and EJ because of the arrest.

    Thank you Chrissi, I just don't understand why they can't do a story for more characters instead of just a few. I guess the article I read was either old or they misquoted Chandler. If they don't recast his charater will Sonny leave?
    I think a big problem I have is the DiMeria's get by with so much and I would love to see them in jail, just once. I think that Stefano will take it back and destroy EJ. I believe the board members are more afraid of Stefano then EJ.
    Just like some variety once in awhile.

    Posted by Chrissi at Monday, July 29 2013 01:45 PM

    Yeah many complain most don't get jailed enough, especially Kate and the DiMera family. The problem is, jail stories get boring so they want their characters on the 'outside'.

    Casey just told me it was his decision to leave the show. Thought so.

    I believe Sonny will leave too but it's too soon to discuss!

    Wrote a quote that Casey gave me.
