    Fairweather Wife.

    Tuesday, March 22 2011
    Carly orders a psych evaluation on RoboRafe, Chad learns Stefano paid his tuition, and Mel and Dario have it out.


    Stefano eavesdrops at the hospital as Sami tells Carly that Rafe is a stranger and one she doesn't like very much. She calls herself a fairweather wife. Carly thinks she should trust her instincts and decides to call for a psychiatric workup. Sami calls Gabi to fill her in about the seizure, while RoboRafe watches from his room and worries he has blown it. Stefano enters his room and RoboRafe explains he faked a seizure in order to cover for a violent outburst. Stefano suggests they pull the plug but the Impostor refuses to. Stefano threatens RoboRafe not to make his decisions. He screwed up and must pay. Robo thinks he can fix it. RoboRafe bashes Rafe, making Stefano think that Sami has gotten to him. Robo grins haphazardly but denies it. Stefano takes off and Carly and Sami arrive to discuss Carly running more tests. Carly steps out while RoboRafe apologizes for losing it. Sami realizes she made a huge decision without consulting him. Robo says they've gotten way too serious and he's afraid. He doesn't know why he freaks out all the time. Sami promises they'll get to the bottom of it.



    Maggie reluctantly calls Victor from the Horton house, but hangs up on him after they say hello. He returns her call and she admits she hung up on him. He assumes she's conflicted. She looks at Mickey's photo, asking if he's sure, and then asks Victor for lunch at Chez Rouge. There's somebody she wants him to meet.



    Philip arrives at the pub, where Chloe is on a call. The Seattle Opera Company offered her a part. She can't do it because she promised Parker she'd never leave him again. She needs to stop floating through life and needs to find a job. She wants to give voice lessons and already posted fliers at Salem U. Philip leaves and Justin arrives to discuss the divorce papers. She doesn't want any of Daniel's money. She wants a fresh start. She has to stand on her own for Parker's sake. Justin's glad she's in good spirits. She says Philip's been a big help.



    Something upsets Chad on the computer at Java. He runs out as Abby and Gabi show up. Chad returns and apologizes for being weird. He's behind on his tuition but his late fees are already paid. He realizes who did it and gets on the phone to his father, but the DA didn't do it. He rants to Abby about it. She commiserates. He calls the Burser's office who says he won a special scholarship. "I just won the Stefano DiMera Scholarship for Illegitimate Children," he tells Gabi. It feels as though Stefano's trying to buy him.



    At the loft, Dario blasts Melanie for not finding the hit-and-run driver who killed Ari. Melanie left it to the SPD and lashes out, saying Ari never even mentioned him. Perhaps she didn't want her to know what an arrogant, self-centered jerk he is. She suggests he talk to his brother about this. Dario insists Rafe doesn't care. Melanie tells him about how hard it has been for them all and reminds him he wasn't there, so he can't pass judgment. Dario wishes he could have been there. He receives a call from Gabi and leaves Melanie at the loft while he rushes to the hospital.



    Victor arrives at Chez Rouge, upset, thinking that Maggie's trying to set him up with some old lady. She tells him to relax. She wants him to meet her. She admits she just realized that Victor's been trying to get her to live her life instead of giving up after Mickey died. Maggie admits she feels young, stupid, scared, curious and happy around him. "I feel alive!" Mickey would be furious if she turned her back on this. Victor's astounded. Maggie tears up and Victor starts to cry. Maggie promises not to tell anyone he's not as tough as he seems. Maggie's giddy with excitement and Victor promises they'll have fun. They toast to Maggie Horton. The woman of Victor's dreams, but Maggie toasts to them and the future.



    Chad goes to Stefano at the mansion to ask if he set up the scholarship at Salem U for him. He asks what he's signing up for if he takes it. Will he owe the DiMera's service after graduation? Stefano barks out a laugh. He likes that Chad's shrewd like his mother. Stefano invites him to play chess, thinking it'll show Chad who he's dealing with. Stefano offers Chad to move in and says he wouldn't lose his scholarship if he does. Chad calls "checkmate" as Stefano chuckles. Chad calls him a formidable opponent. Stefano says he is too, and he's a DiMera no matter how much he tries to deny it.



    Melanie and Philip gaze at Parker at the mansion. Melanie asks for a divorce and Philip decides not to make it harder on her by fighting it. He loves her. Melanie's touched.



    Dario and Gabi arrive at the hospital. Sami brings them up to speed. They visit RoboRafe, who apologizes and tells Dario he's glad he's in Salem and wants him to stay with them. Outside, Sami thinks something's off and she won't rest until she gets Rafe back. Nearby, Carly reads the test results, shocked.



    Salem Spoilers For The Next Days Of Our Lives:

    Taylor tells Brady, "So far, you've acted like a Kiriakis."

    Carly tells Sami there's a discrepancy in the test results.

    "She knows that something is off," Stefano tells EJ.

    Thanks once more wonderful posting friends for your loving support and kind, thoughtful words!

    Unfortunately my week has only gotten worse. My grandfather, who some of you know has been sick for months, took another turn a couple of days ago and is in the hospital, doctors think he will soon be moving into a hospice to await the end. My mom is blaming herself for his recent problems, which is quite scary for the rest of us. And my grandmother, who has Alzheimer's is struggling to cope with everything that is going on and doesn't understand why doctors can't just fix everything.

    The Engineer Mom - you are so sweet, thanks for your lovely comments the other day and sorry i didn't get a chance to respond sooner. I can relate on the alienation thing, my mom has alienated both my brothers with her erratic and unpredictable behaviour when we were growing up, for me it was always my "job" to look after my mom so i just can't let it go, i don't want to feel like i failed her

    kike - you are so sweet too! Thanks for your continued support, and for posting every day, i have enjoyed reading all your comments (and yes i would love to be a writer/consultant for Days, i think everyone on here could do a much better job than the writers!) and i hope you continue to post with us daily, i'm looking forward to chatting with you regularly when things calm down a little for me

    A few quick things on the show (sorry they may be a little random and jump around a bit, but after a week of not much eating or sleeping it's starting to catch up with me)

    1. On Sami's advice to Johnny about beating up the bully. On another site i read people saying she was being a hypocrite since she shot EJ, sure that's true but if Sami hadn't said that then people would have been all over calling her a bad mother. While i think the writers only used the bullying thing as a point for Sami to see how Rafe has changed, i think the writers really should address it as a story, i would love to see EJ and Sami coming together as co-parents to help their child with this problem (a completely believable one since i'm sure we all know what kids this age are like) and maybe see them start to develop some calm and common ground

    2. Stefano and EJ are crazy to let this clearly unstable man be around the small children they proclaim to love so much! It's on them if Johnny or Sydney end up getting hurt

    3. I'm a little disappointed in Stefano's treatment of Chad lately. At first it seemed he just wanted to know Chad as his son and have a relationship with him, but now it feels like he is just concerned about himself and Chad turning on him. Stefano needs to let go of EJ and his problems and this ridiculous fake Rafe thing and spend more time on his new son

    4. I don't mind that Melanie and Dario are starting off from a dislike point in their relationship, i know the writers do that a lot lately and while it's nice to have a couple like each other immediately, at the moment i think anything is better than the love at first sight that the writers think is believable ie. EJ and Taylor's first meeting. I think Melanie's behaviour has been completely in keeping with her character, she has always been a little snarky and self-righteous and i'm looking forward to seeing these two come together, presumably over finding out who killed Ari (which i'm dying to know too)

    5. Chad moving into the Dimera mansion (which i'm sure he'll do) will be the thing that comes between Abby and Chad, again i find this very believable as Abby would know full well all the things Stefano has done to her family and friends

    6. I think it would have been more believable for EJ to have maybe saved Taylor from Dario (who maybe was trying to steal a necklace or something from her) and then maybe i might have bought there connection, because something would have actually happened between them

    Anyways that's me done and i hope everything has a super day

    25YRSOFDAYS - you're sweet, thanks for thinking of me! I truly intended to post on people's comments from yesterday's show but when i sat down to do it i just couldn't summon enough energy, but i've already made 4 comments for today's show! I'll do my best to post when i can but i do love reading everyone's comments, and got all caught up on them today.

    Laurenstwin - welcome, and please try to post with us as often as you can manage!

    While I was reading yesterdays comments, the screen refreshed 4 times. I decided to write on todays show and to keep it short. Stefano could give RoboRafe a shot of that stuff that makes you loose your memory now while he is in the hospital. Then he could switch Rafe's. But RoboRafe didn't get Sami to divorce him. You know, this story just doesn't make any sense. I don't know how they will solve it except I see one Rafe getting killed.

    I also don't understand what is going on with Bo and Hope. He should be taking her flowers occasionally and asking her out on a date at least once a week. They should be talking about what happened and promise each other they will always talk things out and not run away. A few weeks of that and they could be back together again. What do you want to be KC is saving that for May Sweeps. This sweeps thing is driving me crazy and ruining our show. We get boring stories for 4 months or so and then sweeps. They can't get new fans that way. All it takes to get a new fan is for him or her to see one good show on any day of the year.

    That should be "bet".
