    Scratch The Itch.

    Friday, March 25 2011
    Daniel smashes Dario's face in, Jennifer worries about Chad being a DiMera, and EJ confesses.


    Chad drops by the Horton house to see Abby. He introduces himself to Jennifer and when Abby turns up, Chad goes to make a call in another room. Jenn organizes her papers for the new job and Abby can see she's tense. She admits Jack never called, and Abby's surprised to see Jenn removed her wedding band. Jenn explains she's moving on with her life and then starts in on Abby about getting into a relationship with a DiMera. Abby swears Chad's nothing like EJ, and he knows Stefano's bad news. Jenn hugs her daughter, still worried. Chad returns and Jenn takes off. Abby opens up about how close she is with her mom and how she almost lost her. Chad understands and babbles about Spanish class and then tells her he has decided to move into his father's mansion. Abby thinks it's a big mistake.



    At the hospital, Dario flashes to Stephanie bashing Melanie and spies on her laughing with Daniel. He assumes she's after him and when Mel leaves, he approaches Daniel to warn him off Mel, stating she's a player. Daniel plays along, asking what that means and Dario tells him the gossip he heard. Daniel gets angrier and angrier and then lets out a growl before punching Dario's head in. Melanie arrives and Daniel explains he's her father. He gets more pissed when he learns Dario's the thief. Security pops up and hauls Daniel off Dario, who takes off, while Daniel tries to explain what went down. Mel feels bad for her past but Daniel calls her his perfect angel. "I'm so not," she replies, wearily. Later, Jenn arrives and notices Daniel's arm is bandaged. He tells her why and she thinks he's out of his mind. She blasts him, asking if he can still do surgery. He insists he's fine and brushes it off but Jenn's adamant that he should know better. She wouldn't be there right now if it weren't for him and tries to look at it. She notices his wedding band has been removed. They commiserate over how weird it feels to remove their rings.



    At the loft, RoboRafe continues to blather on about he's him but he's not him. Sami's completely confused and when she calls him Rafe, he gets upset. "Don't call me that." He starts mumbling and instead of telling her the truth, RoboRafe begs her for sex. She turns him down and he attacks her, throwing himself at her. She pushes him off, angrily, and he yells that he can't take anymore of this. He feels woozy and sits down so Sami's guilt gets to her and she admits she gave him anti-anxiety drugs. She apologizes, though RoboRafe is flabbergasted, asking why she'd do this. He yells that nothing has changed and says he needs time to think. She goes into her room and he thinks about his close call. He passes out and Sami returns, feeling sorry for what she did but confused about how different he is. She wonders if it's too late for them to make it right.



    Taylor and EJ argue at the DiMera mansion about his lies. She tries to fight him off as he pulls her to him but winds up winding her arms around his neck. He asks her to admit her feelings for him but she won't. She reminds him he's married to her sister, so he smashes a vase in anger and walks out on her. Later, she fantasizes that he's in her room kissing her.



    EJ paces the pier, where Stefano finds him. He heard EJ was acting like a caged animal and thinks Samantha must know the truth. EJ reluctantly confesses that he's in love with Taylor. Stefano's confused, since he's been married to Nicole less than a fortnight. EJ fills his father in on their history, romanticizing as he goes. Stefano can see his feelings are lingering. Stefano suggests EJ scratch the itch. He has to make everyone believe he's happily married and give in to Taylor. Just make sure nobody finds out. EJ grins in understanding.



    Dario bumps into Stephanie at Java. She notices his bruising and he lies that he walked into a door. He wishes she'd have told him Melanie's father was a doctor on staff. Stephanie grins, realizing that's where his shiner came from. He asks if Mel's rich. Steph says her husband is, then takes off, bumping into Mel on the way in. Melanie realizes where he got his information from and he tells her he thinks she really blew it with her rich husband. She calls him a jack-ass and threatens to call Justin.



    Back at the mansion, Taylor leaves a note for Nicole, explaining that she's spending the night in a hotel. She heads to the door as EJ walks in, telling her he can't spend the rest of his life in denial. He pulls her in for a kiss.



    Melanie returns to the hospital with coffee, hyper from drinking too much caffeine. Daniel grabs her third cup as she babbles and greets Jennifer.

    "I'm not okay," Carly tells Nate.

    Nicole says, "Everyone knows EJ and Taylor can't stand each other."

    So, at the end of this update it says that Carly says I'm not okay to Nate...Nate who? Nathan?

    soooooo mad right now . . ughhhh :-( just spent 20 minutes typing a comment, and my screen refreshed, logged me out, and lost my entire comment . . . and, of course, didn't save it :-(

    long story short: nothing's changed for me. still enjoying the same ppl & couples and disliking the same things about others - lol.

    does anyone else think mel desperately needs a haircut??? can't tell you how much this is annoying me!!! lol!

    i just have to repeat how much i cannot stand the dumbness & naivity of Nicole these days. The old Nicole (we all knew & loved - and hated - lol) would have caught on to things by now, without a doubt, and would already be looking for ways to get revenge on both EJ & Taylor.

    I also love RoboRafe and think he's so much more entertaining to watch then the old Rafe. In the end, if he's still alive, I think I'd enjoy seeing him with Nicole ;-)

    That's it for now . . . still upset about my wasted/lost 20 mins of typing :-( i'll have to come back after some sleep to type more tomorrow (friday) or the weekend.

    Oh, two more things I wanted to say quickly . . .

    who's kissing in the last pic above?

    I think Dario will be okay once he settles into the character more. I tend to dislike most of the new actors they bring on the show, but after some time, I usually warm up to them. The only thing that bugs me about Dario is that his voice is a little stiff, but for me, it's just like Roman Brady's. I'm not a fan of the voice, but if the acting is strong, i can overlook it. I think Dario's body language & facial expressions are good - not stiff or forced like Gabi's and Taylor's. I think he has potential, so we'll see where it goes. Thus far, I think he's a great match for Mel. I don't believe he's so bad that he's gonna bring her down, and I like their chemistry

    25YRS, that's Taylor & EJ.

    littlebear, hope you're okay.

    Hey EngineerMom and everyone else.....


    I actually like Dario. Can't help it. And, I do think he Mel are getting together sooner or later.

    Taylor looks so sad all the time because she is in love with her sister's husband. She doesn't want to hurt Nicole, but she doesn't have the right stuff to refect EJ. And we all know what an upstanding guy he is.

    I read in SOD a few months ago that they were going to make Will gay. That was just before they brought Chad on the show. I say nooooooooooooooo! Will is so good with his little sisters and brother that I can see him as a loving father someday. There have been enough gay people on soap operas. Please do not bring a gay couple to DOOL, but if you have to do it, don't make Will gay.

    Oooops. That should be "reject".

    Posted by bghwme at Friday, March 25 2011 02:34 AM

    Let's hope it's Gus that is gay and they bring in a love interest and a storyline for him.

    Posted by tel4plm at Friday, March 25 2011 06:36 AM

    If I get a double post, I apologize. My original post disappeared.

    I respectfully disagree with the opinion that a gay S/L, or gay parents, would be a problem.

    According to various reports (I can provide links if requested,) between 6%-10% of the world's population is gay.

    What percentage of the world's population has been married five or more times? Or has slept with two or more family members? Or has married/divorced the same person numerous times?

    I also strongly disagree with the fact that gay people can't be good parents. A good parent is someone who loves/cares about the well being of their child - it has nothing to do with the parent's sexual orientation. Is Sammi a good parent? EJ? Heck...I'd rather have Will & Chad (or whomever) as parents than Sammi or EJ - any day.

    I do appreciate the fact that we can see things differently, and discuss our disagreement in a rational matter. I just hope you can see my point of view.

    @kike - LOL, you totally crack me up!! I don't have quite as many years under my belt, but I'm also from the old school when it comes to this issue. At the same time, I absolutely agree with tel4plm that "anyone" can be a good (or bad) parent. For me, it's not about that. I just wouldn't find a gay/lesbian s/l entertaining in the least. I don't mean to offend anyone, it's just not my cup of tea. I wrote a TON more on this subject on the poll page yesterday ;-)

    Also, if anyone wants to see DAYS actors doing these types of s/l's, there's an online soap series with Carly, Lawrence, Chloe, Daniel, Rafe, and possibly more (all in one show), and at least two of them (if I recall) play gay or lesbian characters. My memory is foggy cuz I remember reading about it a long time ago, but maybe someone can clarify for those who are interested.

    @tel4plm - as mentioned above, I do agree with you that there are good & bad parents of every age, race, religion, and sexual orientation. None of these outside characters have anything to do with what's on the inside when it comes to parenting - imo. Like I mentioned as well, this type of s/l just doesn't appeal to me in terms of what I look for in entertainment value. 6-10% of the world's population is not large enough (imo) that any show should feel pressured to delve into such a complex (and often controversial) issue. Personally, I'd much rather see DAYS add more ethnic (and even religious) diversity to the show before going in this proposed direction - just my humble opinion.

    I really like how you stated your opinion (everyone who's posted thus far on this topic). I love how, in general, the ppl on this site are very respectful when it comes to differences of opinion This is what keeps me coming back to this site and enjoying the community here so much, so "thanks to everyone" for providing such a welcoming and respectful environment!

    *in my previous post, I meant to say "external characteristics" vs. "outside characters" - lol
