    The All Knowing Doctor Carver.

    Monday, April 11 2011
    RoboRafe murders Faye, Vivian is caught doing a B&E, and Chloe sings.

    At the hospital, Carly throws away the drugs she stole as her hands shake. She finds Lexi at the nurse’s station and turns down an offer to work in OR tonight. In Faye’s room, RoboRafe makes a show of putting on rubber gloves. Faye hyperventilates and attempts to call the nurse. He puts a stop to that and explains that he likes Nicole and doesn’t want to see anything happen to Faye, but she knows his secret. She pleads with him to spare her life but he ignores her and smothers her with a pillow.

    Vivian gushes on a park bench to Gus about how much pain Carly’s in. Gus laughs along with her and tells her nobody's home at the DiMera mansion so they can go break-in. They leave and later, Philip and Chloe find her scarf while walking. Vivian returns for it and gets in his face for hanging out with Chloe. Chloe offers to gather rocks for Vivian's pockets if he throws her in the water. Philip tells Vivian to mind her own business and wraps the scarf around her neck, reminding her of what she did to Melanie and Chloe. They leave and Gus calls Vivian to tell her the DiMera house is empty.

    Outside the manse, Taylor and Nicole want to visit Faye but have car trouble. Inside, Chad's loud music causes EJ to cover his ears and whine to Stefano. The girls head inside and EJ offers to drive them to the hospital.

    Nicole and Taylor return to the hospital and Carly tells them Faye's resting. Meanwhile, RoboRafe has left a dead Faye in her room and turns on her machines before running out. They start beeping and everyone rushes inside. RoboRafe, still in disguise, tries to take the elevator but almost bumps into EJ. He runs off and EJ comforts the girls while Carly and Lexi try to bring Faye back. Carly leaves Faye's room and sadly tells the family Faye's gone. Nicole and Taylor break down in sobs. Nicole lashes out at Carly and demands to see "The all knowing doctor Carver," who she blames for her mum's death. EJ tries to get Nicole to calm down but Nicole screams and demands to know why this happened. Carly thinks it was a massive stroke that had nothing to do with her fall. Later, Lexi privately asks Carly if she did anything wrong. Carly doesn't think so. Back inside Faye's room, Nicole snuggles her mother and tells her how sorry she is. EJ consoles her and tells her Faye died knowing how much she loved her. Nicole calms down and Taylor offers to call Brandon. She leaves a message for him to return her call when he doesn't answer and allows EJ to comfort her.

    Back in Faye's room, Nicole is glad Faye was her mother, and vows to find out what EJ's secret is.

    Chloe and Philip find themselves at the pub. He thinks she ought to do something for herself. She jokes about taking up macramé. He suggests she sing but she points out there's no Opera House in Salem. Jimmy wanders in to ask Chloe if she's going to sing at 'open mic' night. Chloe needs some convincing but gets up and sings "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child," by Van Morrison.

    Vivian and Gus let themselves into the DiMera mansion. Vivi tells Gus to look around upstairs but not to try anything on. She's shocked to find Chad on the sofa eating an apple. He accuses her of breaking in but she denies it. They banter for a bit and Stefano arrives. Chad tells him Vivian let herself in. Stefano says she's made a very serious mistake. Chad goes off while Vivian claims the door was ajar. She suggests he get a watch dog. He suggests she get out and never return. She reluctantly takes off and Stefano gets a call that Faye's dead.

    At SPD, Roman admonishes RoboRafe for leaving without his partner Josselyn. RoboRafe tells him not to get his panties in a wad. He can see where Sami gets her skills for chewing people out. Roman's shocked but a call from Dr. Carver comes in. He learns Faye is dead and tells RoboRafe about it. Robo hopes she rests in peace.

    Vivian is thankful to find Gus on the pier. Stefano would have gone nuts if he learned he was hiding in Kate's closet. "Find anything you liked?" she quips and then becomes curious when Gus says Stefano has a jail cell in his basement.

    Salem Spoilers For The Next Days Of Our Lives:

    "What's going on?" Stefano asks his son. "Something is not right," EJ says.

    Nicole says, "My mom knew a DiMera secret and look what happened to her."

    Mel gasps when a masked man comes up behind her and grabs her.

    Hey everyone,

    I have to admit i found it pretty disgusting watching EJ comfort Nicole when he's supposedly in love with her sister, and then watching him comfort Taylor too. Other than to perpetuate this ridiculous storyline i honestly see no reason for him to have married or remain married to Nicole. It's time for EJ to call off their sham of a marriage, allow Nicole to see the kids occasionally and then they can all move on with their lives.

    I don't think it was necessary to kill Faye off for this story, they could have had her remain in a coma or be paralysed or something to stop her from talking but then learn more and more of the Dimera's secrets. I'm also not really buying the current Nicole, the one who only a couple of months ago didn't care about either her mother or sister who is now so wrapped up in them and apparently loves them so much. I thought the scenes with Faye and Nicole the last few days were sweet but out of character for Nicole.

    So i guess Vivian is going to be the one to discover the secret about the two Rafe's. I'd rather it be someone else since i think she's only going to prolong this story by only trying to get something for herself out of it, but maybe it might induce a spark of light to a dark and dead story and make it a little more interesting and entertaining as it hopefully draws to a close.

    I'm getting tired of fake Rafe's attitude. What a waste, this story could have been a lot better if they'd stuck with the original depiction of fake Rafe as a goofy, half-villain, rather than take him this route. I'm guessing danger is in store for Sami and her kids in the near future.

    I've said it before but i have to say it again, i still don't see how they are going to write Philip out. It just seems like really, really, poor timing. I'm really enjoying his interactions and the development of his relationships with both Chloe and Parker, and am not going to be pleased if he leaves with Parker or without him. I haven't heard anything about the character being recast, and although i love this actor, i would rather see Philip stick around played by someone else than leave at this point.

    Anyways everyone have a super day

    25YRSOFDAYS - thanks for always posting even when you're tired and it's the middle of the night, cos my day is not complete until i've read your thoughts on Days!!

    in regards to spoilers, i'm a spoiler nut! I love reading them (i'm so not a surprise person! as a kid i always had to scour the house in search of birthday and christmas gifts) and then, because they're usually kind of vague i try and figure them all out to see what's coming and think about all the possibilities and how it'll all play out and then i get myself all worked up about them even though they often work out "better" than i anticipated (as you can see i'm really just a complete nut!) so sometimes i just can't help myself in talking about them, but i do always try to remember to post spoiler first because i know you and others don't like to know in advance what's coming up

    On the gay Will story, if/when it comes i completely understand several of you not wanting to watch a gay romance, i don't either, and to be honest the only reason i continue to keep up with Days (i haven't watched a whole episode in months, nowadays i don't even watch many clips, it's just too much effort to download episodes or search youtube and i don't read much that i want to see) is because i have such fun posting here with everyone otherwise i would have given up on the show when the Grace/Syd baby switch ended in Nicole and then EJ kidnapping the poor baby. But if you guys do stop watching and posting then you have to pop back in here occasionally to say hi, or email me, because otherwise i'm going to miss you all too much!

    25YRSOFDAYS - i think that's a great idea that it would be much better if it was just Kate and Vivian's assistants who ended up "pairing" up as the gay couple in kind of a funny, quirky way

    Okay that's about it for me for a couple of days, i'm going to take a few days off from soaps and my computer to try and catch up on rest (i would love it if it were that easy to take a few days off from my life especially after today's hysterics over a ball of wool and some cupcakes that didn't turn out perfect), i'm feeling pretty miserable, i'm getting a cold (the timing of which scares me since i got my cold last year in april and didn't get rid of it until September, and it caused me to lose my voice three times, which is a real bother when you need it to keep a room full of preschoolers under control!), so i really want to try and get rid of it before it gets too bad, plus lately every time i think about eating i feel nauseous, and i've hardly got any sleep the last few days, so i'm going to try and come on here only once a day (very hard for me!) and i'll try to post then too, but i still want to read everyone's comments!

    jenwilli - i'm counting on you to keep up a good number of comments each day!

    PS - i'm so excited that we got at least 56 comments on friday's show (maybe more but that's how many there are at the moment) lets keep it up!

    hmm, i was trying to be brief in my last post but obviously no such luck! Okay now i'm off to go and lie down before i fall down!

    Have a lovely day everyone

    Over this stupid website...sat here and typed on my phone for about 20 minutes, went to preview and the site refreshed and lost it...

    Dear Lord baby Jesus...please save me from my frustration today!

    As much as I hate what the writers do with this show half the time, I won't delude myself into thinking I will stop watching. Most likely I will hang in there no matter what because I'm too nosy to go without finding out what comes next. I too love spoilers and would read them a year ahead if that was available. I do hope they get rid of DH though and replace her with a better head writer. Too many obvious mistakes in her writing.

    Once again, amazing performance by AZ. I really felt for her, she shows the emotions so well. I’m upset about Faye’s death, was that really necessary? I will miss seeing Faye.

    Levismom – I’m with you, I will never stop watching Days. I grew up with watching this show. My grandma and my mother were loyal viewers and they made me love Days. No matter how bad it gets, I will continue to watch.

    Hey everyone,
    Wow so much happened in this episode, I don’t even know where to start.

    Why did poor Faye have to die? I don’t get it. She’s an amazing actress so I don’t understand why they ‘re letting her go. She was great recurring but the writers seemed to think otherwise. I hope that she gets a decent memorial or something but I don’t want to get my hopes up. The funeral will probably happen off-screen. I think that Brandon needs to be in Salem. Who stays away when a family member dies, it’s just wrong. Don’t kill someone if you can’t do it right. However I think that everyone in this story is doing an amazing job. I like RoboRafe but I don’t want him to kill people, he was better before he got cruel. I really felt for Nicole today, AZ nailed those scenes. Nobody can show emotions better than AZ does. She actually had me in tears. Oh and could the writers ruin EJ even more? I hate him trying to comfort Taylor after comforting Nicole. He is a total jerk and I don’t recognize the guy I loved to hate, I can’t stand him anymore. I can’t wait for Nicole to find out about all he has done to her. I hope she does soon because I don’t want this to play out any longer. As for Taylor I don’t know, she seemed to handle her moms death very well. NL’s acting wasn’t really convincing but I don’t want to bash an actor/actress. I’m wondering what will happen when TB comes on the scene. I hope that the Taylor character will get more of an edge, that’s one thing TB is good at. We just have to wait and see how this all continues.

    I don’t want Philip to leave, he was so sweet with Chloe today. I loved their interaction. It was great to see how he made Chloe sing again. Beautiful voice and it remembered me of their younger days when she sang regularly. I liked how he stood up for her against Vivian. Totally missed opportunities by the way, the writers should’ve given us more Philip/Vivian/Kate. Talking about Vivian, she brought some laughter to this episode, which is great. I will never get enough of her. But I want to see where she’s coming from, I want to understand why she’s acting the way she does. Aren’t the writers able to develop characters. They should dig in the history of this show, Oh I almost forgot Highley doesn’t do that. I would kind of enjoy it if Viv finds out about RoboRafe and then blackmails Stefano into marrying her, just to get Kate under her skin. It could be really fun if it’s well written. I think it might actually be a possibility since Viv is most likely discovering the truth.

    HELLO EVERYONE! I am so glad I took lunch late today...I saw the first hour of DAYS, it has been a week since I have seen our show! I guess you can tell I am excited ha? What is wrong with Crazy RoBoRafe?! Dang, the man could have at least been more brisk with the women; he tossed her head around so coldly! Faye does play a good dead person! I laughed when I saw Philip put that scarf around Viv's neck! I cannot stand that I can't see the rest of this episode! I have to get back to work great posts everyone, keep 'em comin', I can't wait to get my DVR hooked up again! CRAZY RoBo Rafe is a heartless and cold hearted lunatic; did I forget to mention psychopath! I AM MISSING MY SHOW SO MUCH, I KNOW, I READ THE DAILY UPDATES AND READ MY CO-POSTERS POINTS OF VIEW; MY FRIENDS TOLD ME THAT I AM GOING THROUGH DAYS OF OUR LIVES WITHDRAWAL. I guess I am 'cause when I saw that it was 2:00 (my time), and no one else was in the canteen eating their lunch, IT WAS ON AND POPPIN! I admit that I would seriously miss DAYS it if were not for this site and wonderful, and faithful posters like YOU ALL!
