    (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Salem Shenanigans from April 21 – 25:

    The theme this week was warnings and threats. The two storylines ramped up a bit but it wasn't overly exciting. Let's get down to it.

    The non-reveal.
    Viewers have had mixed emotions when it comes to Monday’s unusual Ejami fantasy episode. EJ and Sami are seen practically in every episode of “Days” when there are so many more characters the show could, yet doesn’t write for, so there’s no need to pimp them out by dedicating an entire episode to them. It didn’t get us any closer to wrapping up any of the storylines so many wonder what the point was. Or what the real reveal will be like when it happens. How can they top this? Some viewers read the teasers and assumed this was going to be the real deal. They were disappointed and have valid concerns that when the truth does come out, they will have to sit through the whole thing again or the real reveal will be lame. It would have made a huge impact if it was real. It went off the way we all expected with a lot of yelling and sobbing but the twist having Abigail pregnant and shoved down the stairs, similar to Nicole’s fall down the stairs in the square in 2012 was surprising and classically soapy.

    Vote! Days poll: Thoughts on EJ's fantasy...

    Love me some Kami. Sami’s right about Nick and Gabi. Nick’s got her, Gabi, and Kate right where he wants them. If dumping of a body ever came up, Gabi very well could say that Kate and Sami coerced her in her fragile state. Really, that’s what happened! Things just got real for Kate and Sami.

    Stefano sent Kate a gorgeous ring, hoping she’d wear it to their next dinner. He’s a fighter. Kate should know better than to keep the gift let alone wear it. She’s now sending the signal for Stefano to proceed. Surely she knows this! I hate to admit that even though Stefano arranged to have Rafe’s penis cut off I still love me some State.

    (NBC Universal Inc.)
    The criminally insane.
    Liam hiring people to do his bidding is pretty ballsy and shows us he’s capable of a lot more than we thought. He’s finally intriguing to me! The lighting was fantastic while he was eavesdropping on Jenn and Dan’s discussion regarding the prescription for Dilaudid. He looked like a comic book villain grinning and sneering. It was both nasty and amazing. When Nicole tried to seduce him in the bank, Matt (of ex-SOF Matt's Musings) says, "Nicole is not smooth at all." Maybe she's been out of touch by dating a priest. She should have thought of seducing Liam a lot earlier!

    JJ and Paige.
    JJ has known Paige all of three weeks and already he’s losing his mind because she’s going off to university in September? Dude. They’re only friends who shared one kiss – a peck. They’re not even in love so big deal. Another rushed romance from two more people who don’t even suit each other. Gah.

    Tiresome twosome.
    In a nice twist, Jennifer believed in Daniel after finding the pills in his apartment. She knew he was set-up and it was glorious to see.

    Two minute hearing.
    Did anyone find Brady’s part in Daniel’s two-minute disciplinary hearing as unbelievable as Anne and I did? That Dr. Dan’s best friend would be at the hearing let alone mediating was laughable. Speaking of Anne, even she's starting to get to me. As if nobody has heard her bitching about Dr. Dan and slinging mud at his reputation! By now not even the saucy Maxine has gone to Mr. Burns with a complaint? Ridiculous.

    Best lines of the week:

    Rafe, "You sounded like Freddy Kreuger was after you."

    Ejami reveal should have actually happened, imo. Now it is killed and I couldn't care less anymore!

    Tiresome twosome- LOL Excellent! That's exactly what they are!

    JJ-Paige- really couldn't care less! There was tones of drama and story to tell with Bev and JJ!

    Kate and Stefano! Hm... she is going to play hard to get! She is like him- loves the game and challenge! Are we seeing the old Kate resurface? Good. Because I love to hate her!

    True, Liam reminds me at times of the Joker from Batman! But, please not Daniel as Batman!!! Enough of his super-hero thing! LOL... it turned actually into a comics thing...such a great comparison!

    Don't you find Eric a bit obsolete?!

    You see, re Anne and her constant digging at the HRH entourage- it is just too much...two days ago Brady was out of it and now he is right as rain! Gah!Meh!

    Have a great weekend!

    Stjarna you made a really good point. It just soured the story for so many and I too worry I'm losing interest in that story altogether now because of it.

    Yep I too was just getting into Bev and starting to like what little we saw of her. Now there's a triangle possibly? Bleh!

    I think Kate probably still cares for Stefano, too. Haha Kate's fun! Never a dull moment.

    Eric - Yes sadly I think I do find him obsolete. I really love him when he gets in people's face because he's so honest and isn't even being nasty. It's a rare trait but then there's the boring side of him. :P

    Chrissi................Bet you were disappointed again
    yesterday...............didn't we all expect someone
    to be shot and then the waiting for a couple days to
    see who dies.............but no....they had to bring
    in the gross......and Nicole hasn't even arrived at
    the cabin.....So...what is Liam going to do...hang
    that gun on his thumb until the next ferry arrives?

    Is that suppose to be Conn. and the Long Island Ferry
    services....takes them back and forth to Salem, Conn.???

    You know.....if they are going to get all into ferry
    travel...they might as well make it right!! And I
    reckon the "cabin" is somewhere off Long Island????

    You ought to have fun this coming Friday....Chrissi...
    and did you more about the "photo" showing..
    why hasn't she asked him what was in the envelope????
    Can't imagine she would forget something like that!!:))

    How long is it going to take Gabi and Liam to be gone?
    May 1st is what now.....most of the new
    month we will have to watch the creeper and Gabi and
    the other creeper and Jennifer???? MAN!!:))
