    Dorks! (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Deconstructing "DOOL" from November 25 - 27:

    Another drama-filled week went by making "Days" November Sweeps must-see action. It's Thanksgiving in USA and we’re thankful for Sweeps, that our soap is still kicking, and for all of our readers!

    Thanksgiving comes to Salem.
    While it was good to see a few Salemites celebrate Thanksgiving even in a small and ‘dorky’ way, I’ve never heard of a Thanksgiving party. The kids were cute and had fun and that should be all that matters except everyone else was fighting or pimping Dannifer which was off-putting. Mean ole Daniel made poor Parker leave the party minutes after they arrived because he didn’t want to make Her Royal Hortonness uncomfortable. Even after they’re broken up she still comes first. Does that make you want to pound your head on your desk? Or hers?

    With everyone so tense this week, maybe they need another book club meeting...

    Nick’s ‘death’.
    This is a soap. Unless we see a body, it’s rather difficult to dismiss someone’s mortality but as it stands it appears Nick met his ‘end’ somewhat ironically. Years ago he and Willow Stark fought on the beach and she fell to her death on a sharp rock. A rock met his head and almost killed him but boy was that a great twist, having him alive as he hit the icy water. Kudos to the show for being able to keep that a secret!

    Even with his warts Nick was one of those rare complex characters you have strong feelings about either way. Blake Berris always did a bang up job portraying him and I feel rather bittersweet about this turn of events. Then again, without a body who knows what could happen next!

    It’s entertaining to see Sami and Kate (Kami) working together with Gabi but this is so incredibly bad! Sami just got out of jail for manslaughter. What is she thinking? She almost spent the rest of her life in prison and it was her idea to get rid of the body instead of recognizing Gabi was merely defending herself against Nick’s attack and calling the cops? Oh Sami! Since Kate heard the fight in the Horton Square and followed Gabi to the woods, she could easily have said she saw the whole fight and called it self-defense – which it was. But of course the comedy that ensued wouldn’t have happened and boy was it fun. They dragged poor Nick’s body around the woods, argued about what to do with him, Sami chipped a nail, leaving behind a nice piece of evidence, a diamond earring, and the tag from Nick’s bag, and to top it off, lied to some bird watcher about what they were doing in the woods in the dark. Like he will forget three beautiful women in the woods late at night!

    Is he really dead? (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Did the gals do the right thing by letting Nick drown? Vote! Days poll: What should they have done about Nick?

    The booze is calling to him.
    Brady stared at Victor’s double malt scotch like a long lost lover before some dude called to tip him off about Kristen’s whereabouts. Hope just happened to be in the right place at the right time when he paid off buddy for the address, and she put on her cop voice which seemed to scare him enough that he spilled the news about the tip. When they got to the scum haven they found a junkie and some junk that Brady pocketed. He really should give up on finding Kristen. She’s a DiMera. She’s a car wreck. She’s probably holed up with Stefano somewhere and will turn up when she’s ready – if ever. And who the hell takes drugs from some random crack house? Doesn’t he know they could be cut with something far more dangerous than what’s already in them? Desperate times I guess.

    Best Lines:

    Ciara, "You look like a dork."

    Kate, "Give him hell." Simultaneously. Sami, "Give her hell."

    EJ, "He was dressed up like one of us heathens."

    Really sad to see Blake Berris go. I love his acting. Why are some people on this show so stupid that they just don't get it. Just call the cops and take your chances. It would be better that way. But I guess it doesn't create the drama!

    Nick is not dead. I think he will possibly come back and try to get GABBY or maybe kidnap the baby.

    I Love, Love, Love these two actors together. They are your Multimillion $ Couple. They will forgive each other However. WTH is up with all of this "Horrors of our Lives" Return of Everything Bad and Nasty going on with the writing of the plot. What Are You Writers Thinking? Again; WTH.
    You don't like the holidays? You want to turn this show into a Horror Soap? I am VERY upset again about the turn of this show! It's like you just threw a bomb in the middle of this show and think it is not going to effect the loyal viewers! I guess Common Sense isn't very Common when it comes to the writers at this point in time!!! Was there a change in writers? Are you trying to destroy this show? Can you tell I'm UPSET??? If there is a chance that Nick is alive, please make this happen although I don't see how it is possible since he is off the show unless he taped a few more episodes! Sami and Kate would NEVER have done what they did in this Wednesday episode! NEVER. They would NEVER put their Life in Jeopardy because Gabi behavior was in self defense NEVER. To much Horror in this show right now. Lighten Up!!!

    What a horrible, inexcusable and very foolish thing for Sami and Kate to mastermind--and drag Gabi in as accomplice. Now we've got a murder, not an accidental "death" because of Gabi's justifiable efforts to defend herself. Do we really need one more ugly scenario to deal with--especially in the holiday season?

    That’s funny about Jenifer, I would rather pound some sense into her instead of my desk. Or maybe we should all sit Daniel down and make him see what she really is. How much longer before she finds out that Daniel didn’t do anything but save her life. I don’t understand why she is being so hard on Daniel since she didn’t want anything to do with him anyway. That would be great if they would just end this s/l. Not a fan of Anne anymore, I’m hoping she gets her come down. If they have another book club won’t they need more brownies with weed in it?
    I don’t think Nick is dead, I think he will return later and want revenge. I do like Nick and really wanted the writers to give him a good story instead of what they did give him. He is one of those characters that will always have problems. I really wanted him and Gabi to get married and have a good life, but not in the cards.
    It was really funny watching them pull him and Gabi blubbering. She was wearing on my with the constant moaning that she couldn’t do it. I do agree with her that they should have called Hope. I don’t think anything would have happened to Gabi especially since Kate heard the argument, but it is a soap!
    I think that Kristin was the old lady they found in the woods and helped her to a shelter. Why did Brady believe that Kristen would be sitting in a crack house?
    Didn’t like the way that EJ talked to Eric especially since he knows what she did to him and to make him feel guilty is wrong. I hope Sami finds out because she will be mad.
    And not sure about anyone else but missed the Horton Thanksgivings. It just wasn’t the same and didn’t understand the party for Thanksgiving. Really miss the old days! I hope they still have the Christmas tree with the ornaments, which would be very sad if they don’t continue that tradition.
    Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
