    Salem Shenanigans from May 27 - 30:

    The smell of desperation is still in the air in Salem, and Nick’s murder case was wrapped up with lightening speed. On with the column...

    Consequences.
    Nicole’s lucky to have a good friend like Daniel, who didn’t give up on her even when she admitted she told Eric he was in love with her. Let’s hope he hangs in there because she’s going to need him when this is over. When Nicole’s desperate she doesn’t think and it didn’t occur to her that even if she married Eric, the truth would still come out and they’d still be in this predicament they’re about to be in. Thanks to Jenn. Honestly, just when we thought they couldn’t write Her Royal Hortonness any worse. It looks as though she and Daniel will be having more problems ahead because she took it upon herself to tattle on Nicole. Oy. Bad move. Not to mention her bad hair and bad style. See photo inset.

    Whodunit is over...
    Lucas was let off the hook this week in the Fallon murder case, and then Will confessed he also didn’t kill Nick. We knew he didn’t do it. He thought he was going to take the blame for Sonny, but Sonny didn’t off Nick either. It was supposed to be super romantic that he would be Sonny’s hero and come to his rescue and it was romantic but also a little bothersome that Will didn’t trust Sonny at his word that he didn’t kill Nick. Victor also mistrusted Sonny and assuming he killed Nick, offered to send his great-nephew on a one-way trip with his husband and daughter to Indonesia, which just happens to have a non-extradition treaty. Love the scenes between Sonny and Uncle Victor!

    Last week in my column I had the feeling that Nick Fallon’s murderer is someone we least expect. That was wishful thinking, wasn’t it? I should have stuck with my original thought that Gabi did it. I was hoping for a few plot twists because all signs pointed to Gabi which I thought must be too obvious. It was obvious but nevertheless, she confessed and the resolution wrapped up way too fast which didn’t make for much of a payoff. I’m left feeling a bit unsatisfied at how anticlimactic it was and more than a little curious as to why she did it when we saw only one scene that told us she possibly didn’t feel for Nick the way he felt about her.

    Hmm when did Abe become commissioner again? It’s good to see him back in the fold.

    Teen scene.
    Bev’s devious yet ridiculous plot to get Paige to become disgusted that JJ might have given Bev an STD backfired. It was fun to see the younger crowd scheming but Bev must have been taking lessons from Anne or Theresa. She should talk to the master – our Sami. Paige was pretty quick on her feet and saw right through Bev. She should thank Bev, because it looked as though things for her and JJ just intensified as a result of the silly scheme. It was endearing to see Paige’s vulnerable side come out while she confessed to JJ the reason she’s cautious with dating.

    The drunk and the stoned.
    Theresa and Brady are back to being bad and getting naughty together thanks to John’s moronic attempt to get his son to stop drinking. John needs to dial it down a lot, and get out of his son’s face. Has he learned nothing from being married to a shrink for years? If you push someone they’ll only push back and Brady proved it by running back to Theresa after his run-in with John. Now he’s back on coke. Bleargh.


    Ugh bad move. (NBC Universal Inc.)
    Doc ‘n Roman?
    Marlena couldn’t help herself from making joke after joke after joke when Aiden informed her Roman was taking one for the team by accompanying Giselle to the Gala. Is Marlena jealous? Should Roman and Marlena get back together? Vote!

    Nu-Ben:
    I like him. He’s not creepy or stalkerish but that deer in the headlights look Abigail gives him all the time needs to go. Is she supposed to be showing us that she finds Ben a mystery? It’d be preferable to see her flash him a few flirty smiles because at this rate it’s hard to tell what she feels. Nu-Ben’s a nice addition to the cast but he and Abby just don’t feel right. Yet?

    Like father and son.
    JJ and Daniel’s relationship has become very solid. Even though JJ was so obviously used just to further the story with Nicole and Eric, it’s still good to see JJ using Dan as a father figure.

    Ali’s last week on Days Of Our Lives.
    It was January 22, 1993 that Alison Sweeney made her debut on “Days Of Our Lives” as bad girl, Samantha Gene Brady. After 21 years, May 23, Sweeney finished her last day on the show with a big bash on-set which included visits from Christie Clark (ex-Carrie Brady), Wayne Northrop (ex-Roman Brady/Alex North) and Patrick Muldoon (Ex-Austin Reed). Could Carrie and Austin be part of her last airdate? It’s difficult to believe Sweeney’s no longer taping after all these years but luckily, viewers have months until her character’s storyline is wrapped up. Save the tears until then!

    For those who haven’t yet heard about EJ's Rumored Exit, it’s intriguing. It could be spoilerish which is why I won’t discuss it further here, but if it happens, we will talk!

    Feel free to leave me a comment about your thoughts on the week, feedback about mine, or anything else “Days” related. See you next week.

    Best lines of the week:

    Brady to Nicole, “Who are you? Polly Puritan?”

    Victor to Sonny, “The next time you want a man murdered you come to me."

    Will, "I came to confess. I killed Nick Fallon."
    Rafe to Jordan, “Since you won’t tell me anything about your past, I’ve had to make it all up.”

    Daniel to Nicole, "Why didn't you tell him that I killed somebody or that I was cooking meth in my spare time?"

    Hi Holding, thanks! Yep gotta trust those instincts. I'm anxious to watch Monday! I want to hear Gabi's story.

    I'm not sure on either couple since the writers love to play with couples so much!

    Aw I'm there in spirit! Have a lovely weekend!!

    Thank you.
    Agree that the whodunit got too obvious. I had hoped for a surprise but Gabi aka CB leaving made it what it is. Right, tomorrow is a new day... Or next week in Days.
    Nicole and Dan - friendship or whatever it is with them was very well done. Classic Nicole. What more is there to say.Eric is s lost sheep. But now at least he can have a real fresh start. Jen is such HRH and just is not likable anymore at all. She makes me sad. And that style of her, seriously is caricature worthy! Great idea, Chrissie!
    I fast forward Brady when with Theresa. It's too much now.
    Enjoyed Lucas and Hope's scenes. I am glad he got some momentum. But I want to see more of him and Jordan.
    Ejami double-teaming on Will was great.
    I want Roman and Mar Mar together. It was refreshing.
    It still hasn't sunk in that Ejami will be gone after the summer or autumn. Ah ....
    Christie Clark came for the bash- nice! But do we get to see Carrie...oh, I wish she came back. For Rafe.

    I can't stick thee JJ and father son thing. I wished to see Jack being the dad. JJ trying to go down the road and try to study journalism....

    Hi Stjarna, yeah it would have been great if they didn't tell us in advance that CB (Gabi) was leaving. They keep doing this which sort of spoils the story. Poor Eric! But yes he needed to know and now he can make an informed decision! Poor Jenn. I feel bad that I always harp on her but the writers make it so easy. Lucas and Jordan might be intriguing. I don't know why they keep her with Rafe. Wow Sami was amazing telling Will not to confess because of what Lucas did for him all those years ago. Loved that scene. I agree it was refreshing to see Marlena/Roman. I'm curious if they'll really get back together. Yep we have EJ and Sami all summer and into the fall so I don't really want to go down that road yet. It's not fair I figure. We should just worry about today! :P Aw I miss Jack, too. JJ should study journalism!!!

    Sonny is not Victor' s grandson. Justin is Victor' s nephew so that would make Sonny his great-nephew.

    Well done Chrissi!
    I was so hoping that Nicole would tell the truth but she just can’t seem to do that. I think that Daniel will stand by her but think that Sami, Marlena and Jennifer will be all over her. Jennifer is always in other peoples business. I do hope that Dr. Dan drops her. I have a problem with milk toast Eric, so really not concerned about him.
    I picked Gabi as the killer but wonder now if she really is the one. He had 3 shots, did she do that or did someone else shoot too?
    I loved the scene with Bev and Paige. Loved that she knew what Bev was doing and it backfired. Liked it when she was honest with JJ and it just wasn’t that big of a deal. JJ, out baby, is growing up! Now if only his mom and sister would follow suit.
    I’m really tired of the Theresa and Brady match. She wanted him back on drugs I assume to get his money, but it is time to end this. I guess when her sister arrives, she will take over and Theresa will be out of luck.
    I do like the new Ben; not sure what the difference is but he seems less scary.
    I will miss Sami even though she drives you crazy, this character has been on so long that it will be strange not seeing her. I guess we will have another person they talk to over the phone and relay how well they are doing.
    Kristin is coming back in a couple weeks and she is supposed to kidnap someone. I have been wondering if it will be a child or an adult? Will it be Brady or John? Maybe it will be Eric and Nicole will save him! HA! HA!

    Good post Chrissi,
    however, I am so done with that lying Nicole. Even when she finally promised Dan, that she would tell Eric at the church... she went there with another lie, move up the flight... LOL.
    I have no more pity for her. She brings everything on herself, over and over again. Friendship is not one sided.. and Dr. Dan has every right to tell His Friend Eric the truth. Not only Nicole did risk her life, ha, ha, but Dan was right with her, risking his own life, and IMO, he did earn the right to give the truth to his friend Eric... I hope Dan does drop Nicole as a friend, at least for now. Her whole life is a lie and manipulation. She lies about anything, even her Babies... that is pretty bad. The list about Nicole goes on and on as we All know by now.
    I would not want her as a friend, she does not care who gets hurt in the fall out. Her friends have risked their lives and careers for her, and what does she do. Look only out for Herself in the End, Her life, her happiness, what about Eric, I guess at the end of the Day, she does Not Love Eric enough to put him ahead of herself... Wow .. I am steamed, but that is all My Opinion...
    I would like to hear what Hope had figured out, I think she knew something already, before she went to see Gaby.
    I remember when Gaby was at the square earlier, she had a Diaper bag, or something like that.. and then when Nick stumbled around, she all of a sudden did not have that bag anymore. Think she had the gun in there, and then went home quickly and put the gun back into the closet...
    About the three shots, it was mentioned that Three Bullets were missing out of the Kiriakis gun, and we heard all three bullets at the same time.... so it must have been One shooter... Shooting three times, I can see Gabe do it, she was probably way over the edge by the, lots of emotions involved and she wanted to make sure that Nick would be dead for good...

    Eric, now the question, will he go back to be a priest... if not, he sure needs some tough life lessons to survive in this crazy town of Salem. He is so naive, it hurts.

    I have not cared for the Jennifer character in a long time, but I am glad she spilled the secret to Eric. It was time he finally knew, and she did over hear that lie Nicole had told Eric, that Dan was in her with her.. So that made it now also Jenn's business, good for her.
    As we saw, when Nicole got to the church, she was ready with another lie, she was Not going to tell Eric, and she might have gotten away with it.
    It was high time, somebody enlightened Eric, finally. That cat and mouse game between Dan and Nicole really became very tiresome. LOL

    Somehow, I would like to see Dr.Dan and Eric both with New love interests.
    Chrissi, I read and heart that EJ will Die and Sami and the children will leave town...hope that is not true because I have hung in there for so many years, to finally see those two get together and be a family....

    Sick of watching Brady, over and over again, drunk, drugs, this getting so boring, year after year. Give the guy a better storyline, what a waste... Noticed, that no matter how many bottles of Vodka/etc. drugs, he does, he never seems to be really drunk or stoned... looks/acts always to normal.. He should be dead passed out LOL

    I also wish, that Jack would still be on the show, or somehow come back, .. this is Soapy Salem.

    I could see Marlena and Roman back together, even though I think she pushed making fun at Roman just a bit to far... IMO.
    John and Kate, yes, maybe after she gets done with Stefano. I like Kate with both of them...they are interesting together. I am not ready to go back to the Strawberries/whip cream and sighs between Doc and John.

    I love reading your posts always. I am glad that Eric is finally going to know the truth, this has dragged on way too long already. Nicole will never learn and that is what makes her character! Roman and Marlena? No Way!!! I do not like this Roman with her at all, there is no chemistry they seem like old friends I liked Marlena with John, I do hope they bring John back into the show with a great storyline especially since Kristen is coming back.
    I like the new Ben, he seems more the part. Maybe the storyline with him is that they are hiding from an abusive father or ex husband of Jordan's and that is why he refused to have his picture taken as a model in case someone saw it, either that or the mafia is after them for turning states evidence, could even be their father the head of the mafia...lol. Love to second guess the story lines.
    Keep doing the blogs Chrissi, I absolutely love them!!!
