    Jump. Him. Already. (
    These are the "DAYS" of my week for June 22-29:

    I missed a few of the shows so had to write my thoughts based on some of Rolla’s great updates! It appears to have been a good week, leading us into two more storylines and pushing Kate’s storyline to the forefront. Let’s start with them, this week!

    Kate/Daniel/Chloe/Lucas saga:
    This week, Chloe and Daniel gazed longingly into each other’s eyes. I found myself wanting to yell, "Just jump him already, Chloe. You know you want it."
    Kate waited for Chloe to eat the poisoned appetizers, but instead of her eating them, she dropped them and Kate had to get more. She made a big stink about Chris finding other appetizers, because there was no poison in the new batch, so she took it upon herself to inject the new batch – Lucas could have died! What is this woman thinking? Isn’t Chris going to start wondering what’s up? Why did Kate tape the conversation with Daniel? How will she use this against him? We heard Chloe and Lucas finally moved into their new house and that gives Kate an idea. Since Daniel’s sending the "happy couple" a fruit basket as a housewarming gift, Kate will now inject an apple with the poison.

    Rolla wrote, "Lucas and Chloe meet at the Java Café and Chloe gives him a photo album that Lucas’ father had given to him. Lucas is surprised because he thought it was lost in the fire but Chloe explains that Henderson found it, and hopes he could add more pictures in it." What fire? The explosion? And why is this significant? Curiouser and curiouser. I wish I had seen all episodes!

    A bit surprised to hear Will telling Rafe that Johnny’s better off with the DiMera’s. No matter how angry with Sami he is, he knows better than that. After all, it was only a few short weeks ago that he explained to Mia all about who the DiMera’s were. How come he hasn’t had this talk with Lucas? Why with Rafe? Sometimes I feel as though they’re fazing Lucas out, because we rarely see him.

    Who is going to find Nicole out? Rafe is already finding her overly sensitive to Grace's plight, considering she has no connection to the child. Nicole reminded all of us that Grace was Sydney's sister, and used this as an excuse to visit her grave. Rafe bought that this was Nic's reason for being at the cemetery, lucky for her.

    Speaking of the cemetery, who is Emily and what was she to Rafe and Arianna? A sister, daughter, friend, ex-lover of Rafe? We know she was born in 1978 and we’ll learn more about her this coming week!

    That Rafe gets around. Not only is Rafe starting to notice that Nicole cares too much about Grace, but he remembers Mia as being the girl who tried to stop EJ and Nicole’s wedding. He’s asking all sorts of questions about how she knows Brady, but will he settle for her answer that they know each other from a 12-step meeting? Rafe starts wondering how Mia knows Nicole, which we hope means he started doing more sleuthing and asked Nicole where she knew Mia from. Nicole lies that she knew her from her work with troubled teens. That’s a lie she’ll have to memorize. I don’t see Rafe stopping his inquiries soon.

    It’s bad enough that the Salem Spectator posted Hope’s name and photo in their newspaper, along with a story about the humongous "anonymous donation" she made, (Bo must be raking it in, now!) but now, some mysterious person is all over that news. That doesn’t bode well. That’s all I’ll say about that.
    Bo had another vision of searching for Ciara, which we don’t care about. Or do we? You tell me. I couldn’t care less, only because we are teased with this storyline only to have the show put it on the back burner for a week or two then return to it, after we’ve long since forgotten it existed. Bo had a few visions this week. One was from Zack, his dead son. I’m not sure if that means something more than the usual visions and am not sure why they’re using Zack’s memory this way. Any thoughts?

    Bo and Hope reacquainted themselves with Nathan and tried to ruin Melanie’s chances with the new (Horton?) by warning him about Melanie being the one who sent Nick to prison. Why rat out Melanie when Nick’s the psycho who sent himself to prison? I wasn’t impressed. Incidentally, when I questioned Mark Hapka (Nathan) last week about who his character’s father was, he was very elusive. Told me to keep watching! That’s intriguing. While we know a lot about Chad -Casey Deidrick’s character, we are told so very little about Nathan’s. Anyway, I’m glad Maggie set Nathan straight about Nick and that Melanie let him know that she is the one who got Nick the light sentence with her testimony. It’s about time Mel had a little happiness, don’t you think? Maybe she’ll have some with Nathan, unless of course Stephanie dumps Philly and needs a new man. Let’s delve deeper into that…

    Nic helps Sami. Never thought I'd see the day! (
    Yoda: "Crushing on Nathan she is." I noticed that Philly reassured Melanie that he doesn’t think the worst of her anymore. Big turnaround from what he thought of her before she helped to save Stephanie’s life. Melanie found Steph’s prescription drugs and automatically wondered if Philly and Steph aren’t working out and if Steph has a dependency issue. My head spun! That’s surely not the first thing I’d have thought of. Frankly, I’d have assumed that she needed a little help to get through her nightmare with Owen, but then I’m not on a soap and don’t jump to conclusions! Perhaps the way Steph treated Melanie when she left the hospital was more of an indicator to Melanie that things may not be all orchids and Godiva for Philanie. Since Max is in England, Mel couldn’t tell him about Stephanie’s drama, so instead went to Nathan and told her the pills he caught her with were for a friend who is keeping secrets from her fiancé. Then she went to Philip to spill and moments later, chastised herself. Will this girl ever learn to keep things to herself? At least this time, her heart was sort of in the right place! (We still love her, since she was so cute to try to set up Arianna and Brady.)

    Here’s the thing, if Steph dumped Phil, could Phil be open to revisiting things with Melanie? Now that many have finally warmed to her, I’m curious about your thoughts on that? Let’s vote!

    Nobody can complain that Sami and EJ never duke it out. This week, they had their moments. Samanther told EJ he was a "Sociopath who is unfit to be a parent." This is the same woman who told him over and over, how much of a wonderful parent he was. I guess after a man takes custody of your kid, you change your tune. Did you enjoy EJ's threat toward Rafe when Sami alluded that one day he could be Johnny's father? "I'll kill him before that happens." Idle death threats aren’t the norm in soaps, so what does this mean? I laughed when EJ told Sami that what she did was criminal. He would know. It was entertaining when she asked EJ how he'd get custody of Johnny. "Bribery or blackmail?" (Bribery as it would appear, as we’ll see when he speaks with Judge Karen Fitzpatrick, Monday!)

    I understand how crazed Sami is with what EJ’s doing to her in keeping her from Johnny, but her thinking of running away with Johnny didn’t sit well with me. I understand why she’d want to do it but how could she possibly think of doing this when she has two other children? I guess she feels Lucas would do well by Allie and Will, but still. That’s not the way to fight. I guess it doesn’t matter, since Nicole’s guilt seems to be eating her up enough to call Sami and tell her she’ll find a way for her to see Johnny. Good luck, Nicole. Johnny can speak! Won’t he spill that he saw "Mummy" to EJ? Way to go against the DiMera’s!

    Arianna and Nicole had themselves a little chat about Brady. Let me get this straight. Nicole warned Arianna not to treat Brady like dirt – the way she has treated him in the past. Somehow I don’t think Arianna needed the warning.

    Readers are telling me that they’re tired of nobody learning about the baby switch storyline so I polled you on what should happen. A whopping 70% of you said Nicole should be the one to tell EJ the truth about the baby switch and 7% of you said EJ and Sami should never find out. I’m in the camp who wants it to come out before fall and am curious as to why the 7% feel the way they do. It seems as though we’re at least a little closer to the reveal with Nicole’s guilt forcing her to take Johnny to see Sami against EJ’s wishes. Poor Sami. She’s so snowed by Nicole and is starting to trust her, now that Nicole allowed Sami to see Johnny. It’s going to be that much worse when Sami learns the truth. I can hardly wait! Shaking in my knickers, I am!

    Steph got a letter from Kayla. Nice touch. "They can't get online there," she told Philly. I thought maybe they were visiting Bill in Africa, but we’re told they’re in some third world country and that Steph couldn’t visit. Philly sent them supplies and was so generous, offering to fly her there on the company jet. I've never known him to be this way. At first I thought, ah love. He's a man in love. So generous was he to offer to take her to see her family, but then he ruined it for us (Steph and I.) and started talking about "Kickback Kkarma". Blah blah blah. Poor Philly just doesn't understand!

    The best man:
    What’s with Lucas refusing to be Philly’s best man at his wedding? He refused because he doesn’t like the way Victor treats Chloe. Isn’t it Philip’s wedding to Stephanie? What’s that got to do with Victor? As if that should stop Lucas from being best man at his brother’s wedding. I am truly shocked by this. Not that it matters. I doubt there will be a wedding, but still!

    Drugs and Swimming:
    Just say no! Instead of going back to her therapist and telling her that she needed a higher dosage of anti-anxiety pills, which is one option, Steph took 6 pills instead of the 3 prescribed, per day. She prepared to go swimming and was overcome with dizziness and fell on the patio, instead of swimming and then spent some time in the emergency room with Daniel and Lexi. Our little addict preferred to keep the drug addiction from Philly and eyed up her prescription bottle longingly, so while she told Daniel she didn’t want any more meds, we all know that this isn’t over yet. I understood why she didn’t tell Philip about the pills, knowing that instead of listening to her, he’d blame himself and try to buy something to ‘make it all better’. Shame Stephanie hasn’t a friend or family member to talk to. Instead of confessing her feelings about her fiancé to them, she chose to go to Chloe’s pal, Father Matt and discuss her situation. She has made a decision!

    Stay tuned to find out just what that is and I’ll chat with you Friday for this week’s scoop!

    I haven't finished yet, but thought I would go ahead and answer the fire question...the fire was at the K mansion years ago that Kate set trying to kill Victor..she didn't know Lucas was at home and Lucas almost died. He was in a coma for several months.

    Posted by LUMIFOREVERANDEVER at Monday, June 29 2009 04:57 PM

    Good question, why isn't Will having this conversation with Lucas? I think because they are trying to show how serious Rafe is about Sami and part of that is forming a relationship with her children..we saw Rafe, Sami and the twins atleast once bonding and this is how his relationship is starting off with Will...I guess??? I think Rafe is going to be in with a mix of characters in the next few weeks piecing all these secrets together..he sees right through Nicole, Rafe, and Mia and he doesn't appear to be letting up. As for Will saying Johnny is better off with the had to be said out of anger because we all know that is not true.

    I was shocked to see Zach this week...I don't know where this storyline is going. I really haven't seen to many spoilers about it. I agree that the writers dragged their feet on this but I'm kinda interested. Sierra is a cutie and I am craving a storyline that doesn't have to do with lies and love triangles...

    I just rolled my eyes through the Ej and Sami scenes this week...Many have said that Ej loves Sami the way she is...blah blah blah and I would say back..just wait until she does something he doesn't like and he won't feel that way and I was right and it's boring to watch. I just wanted Sami to tell him to shut up. I am looking forward to a trial, if it goes to one. I just hope it isn't the same old, same old...Dimera pays off judge, Dimera wins case. Please be more creative writers. I really hope Stephanie steps up and helps Sami.

    I really didn't get the whole Lucas and the best man scene either, but I can't complain when Lucas and Phillip are in a scene..they could sing the alphabet and I would be entertained.

    I'm kinda disappointed in how they are writing Stephanie and Phillip...I think they have good chemistry and I can see their story play out...She's a Johnson..good girl and he's the rich, reckless bad boy...could be hot, but who I am I kidding...I don't think there will be a wedding either...hopefully because Stephanie plans on helping Sami. I guess I can't have it both ways...LOL

    the end

    Yes. The fire happened at the K mansion. That is the fire Lucas was referring to. They are bringing up past history that occurred around the time Carly was on the show because she is coming back soon. (I just hope she brings John and Marlena with her.) She is a doctor after all, and she and Marlena used to be good friends. I will never give up hope!:)

    Re: Will/Rafe...Will did try to talk to Lucas about what was going on, but Will mentioned that Ej had filed for custody of Johnny, and Lucas cut the conversation short to go "be there" for Sami. They were supposed to talk about it some more later, but later never came.

    I think Will knows better too. He was just lashing out at Rafe. He even told Mia at the funeral that he fully understood why Sami did what she did. What he doesn't understand is why Sami thought she had to lie to HIM about it.

    I think Sami should be the one to talk to Will. They will never work this out until Sami lets him know what is honestly in her heart. Perhaps Roman and Caroline could set up a meeting between the 2 of them and be there to mediate.

    Judge Fitzpatrick was always the fair judge who did not succumb to the DiMera blackmail and bribery before. Wonder why it's different this time? Is it because it's Stephano she is dealing with and not John and EJ?

    Philip told Melanie that she had changed and so had he. Yet, Stephanie is convinced that Philip will never change. I think that's interesting.

    The visions that Bo has with Zack in them are different than his other visions. Sometimes I think there is a Zack look-alike out there. Perhaps a secret twin that Bo and Hope never knew about? Could be that Bo's visions are just him being "connected" somehow with a son that he "feels" and thinks that it is Zack? That would make a fun storyline.

    Stephanie has not been on those pills long enough to become addicted. She abused her very first prescription and took too many. She knows she did wrong, and hopefully; she has learned her lesson and will not develop a dependency on them. I think she might get a big ol' lecture from Brady when he finds out about them. LOL Hope Stephanie does not try to steal Melanie's boyfriend. I like Stephanie and Melanie better as friends.

    I personally do not like this Daniel and Chloe storyline. I still don't understand why or how they love each other when all they have is sex scenes! And just little scenes here and there and they never really have talked or anything! I loved Daniel with Chelsea....I thought Shawn and Rachel had just an awesome chemistry and I just hope that they bring Rachel/Chelsea back! I just don't understand Danloe....please please Days bring back Chelsea and bring Daniel and Chelsea back together!

    Posted by lvnsafe4ever at Tuesday, June 30 2009 02:50 PM

    Angelatil, I totally agree with you about Daniel and Chelsea. Now when these two hooked up for the first time you could see the CHEMISTRY flowing out of them, they were hot! Chloe is good with Daniel, but Chelsea was much better.
    I see where Max is going to ask Bo for Chelsea hand in marriage. Just hope the writers could bring Rachel (Chelsea) back on the show and hook her up with Daniel and they could get married.

    Rafe has to tell Sami about Emily. He knows almost everything about Sami, now its time to tell the truth about Emily (girlfriend or fiancess). He loves Sami and you can tell it will hurt him to talk about Emily.

    GO SAFE. Tell Sami the truth, you guys will be okay

    This weeks’ episodes were not enjoyable to watch; in Sami’s words “it was a bunch of crap”. The only good scenes in the last month were Rafe, Sami, and Grace as a happy family, and they took that away from us. Now we can watch Kate, EJ, and Stefano terrorizing Daniel, Chloe, and Sami, if I want to see this type of TV, I’ll watch the news……The show is so far out in left field, it’s not enjoyable to watch anymore….The three terrorist will never get caught, so the victims will continue to suffer, this is getting so boring, stupid, lame and the same thing over and over and over again. Give me a break!!! The best quote of the week was Kate’s “you’re a thorn in my heart” a lot of the viewers feel this way about Kate. I’m glad the week is over, maybe in the next few weeks the show will get better; it can’t get any worst…
