    Walking papers? (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Deconstructing "DOOL" from December 9 - 13:

    Salemites made it through another week of drug usage, blackmail, and covering up murder. By Friday, their leathers were at the cleaners and they broke out the leopard print.

    The cover up.
    Sami thinks her and Gabi's nightmares are their conscience's way of reminding them how horrible Nick was. Not likely. It's more likely that the nightmares are their conscience's way of working through the "murder" and cover-up. I'm using quotations around the word because we've seen no body.

    It's a good thing "The Three Stooges" didn't tell Percy the bird watcher to mind his own business when he came upon them at the square and asked what they were doing in the wee hours of the night at the 'beach'. I think if they had, it'd have made him suspicious. Keeping things light and fun and natural seemed their best bet even though he can still finger them for being at the scene of the crime once it comes out. And it will come out. It always does. It's only been a few days and already Sonny knows. This is the most animated we've seen WilSon in...well...ever. Give us more of this, please.

    Matt (of Matt's "DOOL" Musings) watched Friday's episode and when Roman turned up at Sonny's place and shouted, "It's the police!" he couldn't believe Sami didn't recognize Roman's voice. Her own father. Then Matt pointed out, "Sonny leaves the window wide open on a windy day in the middle of winter so no one would notice someone was there?" Yep. Salem.

    This week's Days poll: Thoughts on this murder storyline?

    The letdown.
    Rafe letting Kate down gently – if that's what it was, had to have been the most unusual way of letting someone know you're just not into them that we've ever seen. And Kate seemed to take it rather well... so far. I felt embarrassed for her that she's been hanging on without encouragement from Rafe. If she really wants Jordan away from Rafe she should just introduce her to Lucas.

    Soaps.com caught up with Chrishell Stause this week to discuss who Jordan really is, what she thinks of Rafe, if she's afraid of Kate and how soon we'll see more of Jordan's mystery solved. Sadly, it's not going to be that soon. Stause tells us, "Honestly, I would say that people need to be patient with the storyline because it is definitely not something that is going to be revealed very quickly." Read the rest of our Interview with Days Of Our Lives' Chrishell Stause.


    Blackmailing liar. (NBC Universal Inc.)
    No romance in the afternoon.
    There has been no shortage of drama in Salem these past several weeks with murder, a cover up and drugs taking center stage, but the romance department has slowed some. Most couples are separated or having problems. Will and Sonny don't get much action, Adrienne and Justin are rarely seen together, Sami and EJ are on the rocks, and everyone else is separated. The budding romance of Rafe and Jordan (Jafe) should change that soon, and Sami will eventually forgive EJ won't she? It doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon. These two have cornered the market on anger sex but this time even Sami took a step back and decided not to go there. Their fight was very realistic, the dialogue spot on and the acting was terrific. They went from one extreme to another and still wound up with no solution. Matt says, "Why can't Will have fights like that?" Indeed. If Sami can't trust EJ there'll be no sex and let's face it, without sex they'll move even further apart. It happens. We've already seen a few EJabby scenes and there's no denying they've chemistry. Abby has daddy issues and a thing for older men (Austin) and since Sami and EJ are having issues, EJ's vulnerable. Who knows what could happen?

    Snow.
    Brady's best friend is back in town and the two have been together quite a few times. He's starting to take risks and already JJ's on to him.

    Can you believe JJ actually asked a drug dealer to tell him if he sold drugs to a guy named Brady? Brains? Fried!

    Theresa.
    Theresa was faking amnesia. Who knew? She was very convincing. It's pretty twisty but only means this storyline pimping Dannifer is nowhere near to being over. I'm not sure what to think about that except it's making me root for JJ more. It's pretty funny that in order to get back on Anne's good side she revealed her agenda. She really does play everyone.

    Passive aggressiveness.
    HRH Jennifer couldn't wait to get up on her high horse and tell Daniel he wasn't the man she thought he was (for whatever it was he did with Theresa) and that he was vindictive. And before she stomped away she told him to say hello to Nicole – not that she cares why Nicole's living there or what Daniel does. Hmm. Daniel should have said, "Oh contraire Jenny. But you do." Does Jennifer really think Daniel gave GHB to Theresa in order to get some? She should know better. The man's a saint and everyone in Salem knows it so in her shoes wouldn't you be wondering what was up? Oh ye of little faith.

    Jenn and Eric are two peas in a pod. They're the most pious and the most judgmental in Salem. Instead of giving people a chance, especially ones they know, they're both quick to judge based on nothing.

    Eric's memories.
    It looks like we're closer to the priest remembering his defrocking, what with Daniel's magical concoction and Dr. Chyka being open to spilling Kristen's secrets for the right price. Is it just me or does remote beach look like the living room at the DiMera mansion?

    Big question of the week...
    How come Maggie can't move into her house? Did she sell it without anyone knowing?

    Best Lines:

    "If I see your roving Lothario, I'll give him a piece of my mind, and if I find a body, I'll know you got to your victim first," says Percy.

    EJ, "You know the difference between you and me? I didn't blink."

    "I don't trust you," Sami says, "But I love you and that will never die."

    Sonny's text to Will, including the four exclamation points… "Only for you would I go back in the closet!!!!"

    YES!!!!! Great Great Great Blog!!! You can go home, put your feet up next to the fire, SMILE and say.."D@mn You're Good, Chrissi!"

    Loved every word.
    I did LOVE getting a glimpse of the "REAL Maggie" this week.. I totally agree with you. Now IF we could just see this continue in "Her" Kitchen. Even IF Victor has to move in with her. haha
    Thank You!!

    Lololol Chrissi I mentioned on the daily board, why does Maggie act homeless when she has that beautiful home of Mickey and hers. That's where I'd be going and setting up camp until Victor comes into his right mind. Come on Maggie tell the stage hands to shake your house out of the mothballs. Lololol. have a safe and great weekend Chrissi and Matt .

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    I’m tired already of the Nick story. Doesn’t everyone know that Kate and Sami hate each other and now they are always together? Just my opinion but didn’t think Sonny should hide in the closet and eavesdrop what was going on. It is really none of his business if they plan a party until they ask for his help. I think Percy will be part of their downfall, that and Theo with the earrings. Did Ciara put them in her pocket or did she put them on? Hope will see them and wonder where they came from. I didn’t recognize Roman’s voice when he said it was the police but that could be he isn’t on very much.
    It was awkward watching Rafe telling Kate to move on. Now she will really go after Jorden. I do like her and hope she has a relationship with Rafe. That will make Sami mad for sure.
    EJ and his butting into people’s business is aggravating. Why can’t he just wait until Sami is ready to tell him but he has to keep asking what is going on. Didn’t he try and trick Gabi before? He should be busy running his companies! Besides the hospital, does anyone work in Salem? And why do the ladies always look like they’re going to a cocktail party?
    Abby and EJ? Never thought of that one!
    Theresa is really a piece of work. I thought she turned a leaf and was going to be good. Hope that JJ does take her down. Can’t believe I’m on his side but it seems like he has turned around. Now Saint Brady is going to tell Jennifer that JJ was in a part that sells drugs and I guess he was jogging through when he saw JJ. Wow, Brady is really over the edge now.
    I agree what you said about Jenn and Eric, but I would add Marlena in that mix.
    I wondered the same thing about Maggies house. Don’t remember her selling it so why she went to a hotel is a mystery. Maybe she is renting it to a lovely couple to be named later.

    Oh my, zuzu thank-you. You guys know I welcome all positive feedback and all constructive criticism. I wasn't sure if this blog was going to be good. You just never know!

    Can you imagine Victor moving in with 'her'? haha!

    Omgosh yes so you noticed too, littleguysmom! I couldn't help but wonder. Did she rent it out maybe. I miss seeing her house. She should rent it to the younger characters. :P

    I have to agree what Sonny did was pretty underhanded. Haha I didn't think to say so. He's usually such a good person that I guess I might have let it go! Ciara put the earring in her dreaded backpack!! Hahaha

    EJ is hilarious. He can't stand Sami to keep a secret but he has loads of them! :P And yes they do look mahvelous all the time!

    Marlena - definitely would lump her in with those two as of late. It's sad that this is all we've got for her. She's being written in a poor light lately. I wonder how Christmas will work!

    I missed seeing the Thanksgiving dinner the Horton's would have had but the writers didn't do it. Now it sounds like they don't plan to do the party at the hospital or reading from the Bible. Does religious items have to be excluded from everything? Are they going to at least put the ornaments on the tree?
    The writers never finish any of the stories and that would be nice. What happened to Rafe's girl friend? Why do we have Brady doing drugs again and going at it so strong? So many stories started and not finished that I can't remember them all. Don't mean to complain but it would be nice to end some of them.
    Chrissi, you do a great blog every week. Look forward to Saturday morning when I can get on and see what you wrote. Continue with what you are doing. You point out things I miss but being a senior, I'm glad I can remember an hour later what you said.
