    I'm Sober.

    Friday, January 13 2012
    Nicole spars with Quinn, Will receives a gift from EJ, and Abe is shocked with another of EJ's dirty tricks.

    Brady massages Madison at Intensity spa, when the masseuse is late. Quinn gives them a discount and says the masseuse will be there soon. Madison shows him out, locks the door and rips off Brady's towel. She gives him a sexy massage and they make out.

    At Alice's, Hope and Bo show Jenn the key to the safe deposit box listed under A Grayson. Jenn's astounded that Gran kept these secrets from them for years. "It's not her." Bo lets Abe in for his strategy session with Jenn. The men go off and Jenn talks about double-dating Daniel and Jack and how it didn't work out. She's "fickle." Jenn wishes her relationship could be easy like Hope and Bo's. Hope snorts. It's not easy and relationships aren't perfect. She confesses she and Bo are in therapy. Jenn's eyes widen. Hope talks about how hard it is drudging up old memories. Bo and Hope leave and Abe and Jenn get down to work.

    EJ urges Nicole to get into Intensity for her self-defense class. She's reluctant. He wants her to keep an eye on Quinn. She doesn't like that idea but he wants her to watch his investment. Back at the spa, Nicole isn't happy that Quinn's her instructor. He tells her he's seeing a therapist and is trying to make a decent life. Nicole rolls her eyes and they start kick-boxing. A robed Brady bumps into Nicole by the water cooler later. She thinks there's something different about him. "I'm sober." They laugh and Madison interrupts. Brady goes to find fruit and Nicole is glad Brady's with someone who makes him happy. Madison's face falls. Brady returns and Madison returns to her room. Nicole and Brady say they like her. Brady thinks Nicole looks happy. She's thankful he hasn't made a crack about EJ. He's showing restraint. She makes him zip his mouth. Brady goes back to Madison. They ponder her job offer from Victor, flirt and start kissing. In the lobby, Nicole and Quinn spar. She does well and he compliments her. She decides he may have changed.

    Rafe and Sami meet at the square for lunch, happy they don't have to brown bag it. They share their happiness with their jobs and bosses. "I have my eyes wide open about this," Sami says. Sami tells Rafe she loves him and becomes uncomfortable when she sees EJ nearby. They discuss work, Will and Rafe's job offer from Abe. They part ways. Will arrives and finds his contact. The man hands over the envelope and leaves without a word.

    At the pub, Will is annoyed to get a call from EJ who has another job for him. He'll be right over. Moments later, he arrives and Will complains about his last task. EJ says he can think of the tasks as a gift to him so he'll keep his mouth shut about him. In fact, EJ wonders if Will's getting a kick out of these tasks. Didn't he feel a rush? Will reluctantly grins. "Stop," he says, while trying not to smile. EJ grins and urges him to come clean. EJ instructs him to meet some guy who has an envelope for him with further instructions. EJ thinks he might enjoy this assignment.

    EJ arrives home to a camera set up in his living room. Will arrives with keys to EJ's fancy new sports car. Why did EJ have him pick it up? "Did you like it?" Will loves it. EJ throws the keys at him. "It's your car." It's a perk. He's representing him and the DiMera family.

    Bo and Hope arrive at the bank. Mr. Simpson tells them the safe deposit box didn't belong to Alice alone and both parties must be present in order to open the box. The key is useless.

    Rafe arrives at Alice's and Jenn offers him a job consulting with the other guards about crowd control and covering Abe's private detail. Rafe will try to fit them in his schedule. They turn on the TV and watch as EJ does an interview about the creation of new jobs. Abe angrily wonders how the hell DiMera got his hands on his plan.

    At the pub, Sami gets a call from Kate, who asks her to bring a file by the mansion.

    Sami walks in on EJ at the mansion, handing over the keys to the car and telling Will that this is just the start of what he can give him. "What the hell?" Sami asks.

    Salem Spoilers For The Next Days Of Our Lives:

    Jenn tells Nicole that they need to talk.

    Hope says to Bo, "That's not just a pattern, it's an MO."

    Sami asks Will how he thinks Rafe will feel when he finds out Will wanted to work for EJ.

    The scene between Rafe and Carrie lasted too long. They looked like friends putting up with a difficult situation. The only thing sexual that happened was when Carrie started rubbing the ice cube on her chest. Rafe was looking at her, but I bet he was wishing it was Sami. Rafe will not betray Sami until he finds out she had sex with EJ.

    That's just my opinion.

    Posted by complicatedlady at Friday, January 13 2012 12:46 AM

    I forgot the most important part. I love the romance on the show now. It is also wonderful to see people happy and smiling. The show got so gloomy last year.

    Off Topic: The doctors are taking good care of my husband and he is feeling much better. Thank you so much for your prayers.

    Can we say double standards with Miss Madison. She was all over Sami for being at the spa and now she and Brady are there giving each other massages. I am not sure I am liking Madison so much anymore.

    Work calling, have a fantabulous day.

    Hope to be back, more to comment on.

    Complicated I agree with how long it lasted but in JMO the show is trying to put them together and this was very clearly the time when you knew that he wasn't thinking of his wife. Normally I wouldn't even mention him in my daily reviews of the Days but they both clearly were seeing something sensual about each other. Too many furtive glances.

    Glad to hear your husband is doing better.

    Bearigan I read a recap elsewhere yesterday and EVERYONE is stating the samething about madgirl & her boytoy.

    Anyone read the latest spoilers up to January 20th. Some interesting stuff. The show really is getting back on track.

    Can't wait to see today's show. First to see Brady and Nicole interaction. Plus the Quinn giving kickboxing lessons. I read the article in which the actor said Ari picked up on this quickly. Not sure EJ thought this through cause once she finds out buddy will she be using this new skills on YOU or Sami. No more catfighting that the soaps like to do but now she is going to be lethal!

    Will and EJ and the car! oops and along comes Sami seeing the exchange. Can't WAIT!

    Previews ouch Jenn better watch it she might be the first to get the new moves that Nicole just picked up. Don't pick a fight with a girl taller, longer reach and kick!

    Hi Everyone
    Thought I would reiterate bits & pieces & add-ons & offs to my post last evening

    Just wanted to say, I appreciate "all" your wonderful comment

    complicatedlady - I'm so super excited to see you posting. I missed you Regarding yesterday's post -I agree! "I'm not happy that the writers are going ahead with the gay story by bringing Mateo in to be Will's love interest." Glad your hubby is doing well

    allmylovingdays - As for liking EJ b'cos he is being portrayed by James Scott - The Engineer Mom said it best, James Scott owns that role And the same goes for Sami (Ali). Actually, IMO, the casting director(s) have done a fantastic job casting "all" the characters!!

    bearigan & canuck - Perhaps Rafe & Carrie should have opened the door since the windows were painted shut!!! Really!! They could have gone home since the thermostat would not shut off, duh!! All they had to do was leave a note on the door and GO!!! However, it's a shame Austin or Sami didn't walk in!! OMGOSH!! What would Rafe do if he saw Carrie in a bathing suit???? In all sincerity, those scenes were very cheesy and totally out of sync with Rafe's character!! Who wrote that????

    bashfungirl - I too heard Rafe say, the windows were painted shut! Most of the new buildings have windows that do not open so it would have been better for the writers to go that route since the building looked relatively new!

    levismom - I agree. Nicole is a smart cookie. She knows suspicious when she sees it. It just a matter of time before she gets the 411 on Will & EJ!!

    Well, wasn't "dear Abby" marked with the face of a smiling Cheshire cat??? She is so self-centered it's pathetic!! She has no regard for Carrie at all - it's all about her!! And she has the audacity to be so mean spirited to Melanie!!! And then_ there's poor unsuspecting Austin!!

    bearigan - I haven't seen today's episode yet, but Madison's at the spa after she sharply rebuked out Sami????

    Great SPOILERS coming up

    Posted by jenwilli at Friday, January 13 2012 06:28 AM

    Sorry, I must have inadvertently hit post before I could proof.
    For one_ I meant to say, sharply rebuked Sami????

    Posted by makesmehappy at Friday, January 13 2012 06:31 AM

    Allmylovingdays- I believe it was you who asked about the numerous flashbacks that Sami and EJ keep having. To the reasons posters already stated, I would add 2 things:
    1) To me, it appears that the fact they didn’t talk about what happened and mostly the WHY, makes this event haunt them even more… Sami is asking herself if EJ has feelings for her… Could she be in love with a man she pretends to hate?? How could she have done this to a marvellous husband, the one all her family is found of and who has always stood by her… Her own feelings are resurfacing even if she’s making thousands of efforts to “apologize” to Rafe for her betrayal. On the other hand, EJ’s flashbacks are there to remind him that Sami will never go away no matter how many Nicoles or Taylors of this world he ends up with. She is his true soul mate, she completes him… In fact, they complete each other. So in a way, the flashbacks keep resurfacing because both EJ and Sami are left with unanswered questions…
    2) I also think that writers want to please the audience with the prospect of an EJami reunion somewhere in time. That explains why they keep EJamis on their toes! On another website, DAYS fans were asked what their most memorable moment of 2011 was: clearly the fight followed by “consolation sex” when Johnny was missing, came first!! And to the question of what fans want in 2012: EJami was THE main subject of discussion. As much as the show wants to please the viewers, there has been too many “obstacles” for Sami and EJ to find each other again in a too short period of time. A good writing team knows better than to rush a supercouple! It has not worked for EJaylor, nor is it working that well with Bradison.
    Happy Friday to all!

    I HAVE to get this off my chest! I thought the scene with Carrie and Rafe yesterday were borderline PORN! if not a start-up to a porn scene (I don't' watch this trash but know what it is!), except sensors would have stopped this. This is just about the last straw for me and I hope it doesn't happen again! An ice cube down Carrie's cleavage. Call me old fashioned, but there was no romance here at all and the looks! This was beyond teenagerish, it was trashy, disgusting and totally out of line. I know soaps are rated 14 for age, but I'm certainly glad no one in my family, including teenage grandkids saw this! I love romance and love itself, but if Rafe's pants were any lower, well, ladies (and guys too), you can take it from there! I couldn't even laugh at this scene and I don't agree that Rafe was thinking of Sami. These two (Carrie and Rafe) were worse than cats in heat, which can't help it, it's instinct. I'll post later after watching today's show, hopefully, it's cleaned up a LOT, and speaking of clean, I really, really, really hope they use a lot of BLEACH on the towels at the spa. LOL, Happy day all!
