    Unicorn Highway.

    Monday, January 23 2012
    Madison tells the truth, Victor drops a bomb of his own, and Chad turns Kate down.


    While sparring at the spa, Quinn takes Brady down and lectures him about channeling his anger. Brady vents about John not being able to get any financing for Basic Black. Quinn commiserates but Brady scoffs. He blames Quinn for the attacks on hookers. Quinn says he'll always feel guilt. In fact, he's in therapy. Brady wishes him good luck and apologizes. He spoke with Chloe and knows that Quinn wrote to her with an apology and helped promote Chloe's opening night. He was also instrumental in Carly going sober.



    In the square, Madison interviews Abby. Madison is concerned that she's over-extended herself already with her other jobs but Abby makes a good case about being a natural born multi-tasker. She's hired. Nearby, Bo and Hope tell Stefano they set him up. They know he holds the second key to the safe deposit box he shares with Alice. What's he and Alice hiding? Stefano sighs, admits he shares the box with Alice. He invites them to take a look at what's inside after he sees Hope's key. They leave. Brady finds Madison, who tells him she hasn't made a decision on the CEO job at Titan. She confesses Sami's a mole and brushes it off. All is fair in love and lipstick, Madison claims. Brady's furious that she doesn't see it as being unethical and he doesn't like her using his sister. Madison tells him how personal this is. He hates it but she can't pull out now. Nearby, Quinn bumps into Abby, and she tells him about her intern news. He brings up her and Melanie's troubles. Brady and Madison walk by and Madison admits she wants Abby to become a model for MW. Brady suggests she ask Quinn too but Madison has other plans for Mr. Hudson.



    Chad shows up at Countess Wilhelmina and Abby gushes that Kate has offered them both jobs as the new faces of CW. Chad has no interest and wonders what's in it for Kate. Kate informs Gabi that Chad believes in DiMera conspiracy theories. Kate's simply doing this for her business. Chad's sarcastic and refuses the job. Kate will have to find a new couple, causing Chad to feel guilty and pressured. Kate leaves the room and Chad calls Gabi gorgeous, though she doesn't feel that way since she seemed to turn Will's stomach. Chad assures her again that she's beautiful and decides to take the job, knowing how much it'll mean to her.



    Sonny and Will meet with two marketing guys, Kareem and Dustin, who are working on the promotional campaign for the new coffee house. They started the new campaign for "Unicorn Highway" and it's doing so well they've had to turn guys away. Will seems surprised that Salem has a gay bar. He smirks and Sonny grins knowingly. Sonny has a thing for Dustin so Will promises to put in a good word. Later, they all go around the table discussing how they came out. Dustin asks how Will came out to his parents and Will laughs nervously. Sonny saves Will by making a joke about wanting the conversation to revolve around him and the guys take off to leave. Will acts like it's no big deal that the guys thought he was gay.



    At the Kirakis mansion, Melanie mopes. Daniel's leaving town today. Jenn walks up, shocked that he's leaving so soon. Everyone leaves the room and Jenn voices her displeasure and surprise. He says he's going to Australia for starters. He's tired of the painful memories in Salem but will always have fond memories of her. They hug and she weeps. Victor returns and Daniel thanks him for all his support. He hands over his father's pocket watch as a gift of thanks. He tears up and calls the mansion home. Victor almost spills that he knew Maggie was his mother but catches himself. He goes off and Daniel says goodbye to Mel, Jenn and Maggie gives him a compass to remember her by. Jenn gives him a passionate kiss goodbye.


    Hope paces and worries at the bank. It would have been Gran's birthday. Before they open the box, Stefano asks if Hope's sure she wants to know this secret that Alice went through a lot of trouble to keep. Bo can see Hope's not ready, so they decide not to open it.


    Will winds up home. He looks at a photo of him and Sami and then stares at the mirror before spitting at his image.



    Salem Spoilers For The Next Days Of Our Lives:

    Jenn tells Abe, "I have a way to stop him and EJ will never see it coming."

    "Are you asking me to be your spy?" Will asks Nicole.

    Rafe says, "There is the Sami I love." "You could have fooled me," Sami retorts.

    OH NO!!! Please I do believe the writers read our little chit chat. Unicorn Highway! I can't two guys would call anything Unicorn something and expect success but they said they did.

    Rainbows. Luckycharms, unicorns....I am trying for the life of me right now to think of the song that Kermie sings in the original Muppet movie.

    aha in my rush I DIDN'T Read it right..it must be a kidspartyplace

    OH NO! Will.poor kid. Mom and son both have a thing against mirrors.......

    So in my rush before I read that the guys Sonny & Will met were first owners of the place then no they just did the advertising BUT THEY HONESTLY are owners of a gay bar called Unicorn????!!!! NO NO NO. sigh. I hate that and I see that Sonny deflects the guys from Will, so Will has an inkling too once again that Sonny is clued in. BUT MY POOR WILL! I want him to accept himself. If he doesn't then his life will truly be miserable.

    Good morning posters! I feel so bad for Will. He is just a kid after all and going through a very rough time. It sure gives CM a chance to use his acting chops. He is doing a fantastic job! Others may not agree but I think Quinn deciding to change his life and take some action toward that end sets a good example for viewers. I am glad he is getting a second chance from some of the Salemites. He is on the same track as Melanie, Bo and Hope who are all trying to make positive changes in their lives and learn from their past mistakes. There are a few other people in Salem who could stand to do the same. It doesn't change what he did, but everyone should be given a second chance if they are sincere about going a better direction. After reading the recap I'm so frustrated about the safety deposit box. How do Bo and Hope know that Stefano would agree to show up with the key a second time? I'm dying to know what's in there.

    Good Morning Everyone,

    Well I want to start out with the safe deposit box. We are all wondering what in the world the secret between Mrs. H and Stefano could be. I think we have all been looking in the direction of EJ, but I have to wonder if perhaps we shouldn’t look in another direction. I know Mrs. H hasn’t been gone that long , so could this secret been from years ago or more like the last few years before her death. I for one cannot imagine her having anything to do with Stefano after what he done to her granddaughter. When was it that Stefano hired someone to be a surrogate mother to have a baby for Lexi and Abe to adopt and then switched the babies when Hope’s baby was born. Miraculously they all go into labor at the same time. Then after a bit the surrogate Mom and her husband wanted the baby back and took the baby from Bo and Hope. Oh yeah that is right that was when Zack was born. So now I am wondering if perhaps the secret is something to do with that time and maybe Zack was not Bo and Hope’s baby at all and the other little boy was. They used to mention the other little boy from time to time. Well that is one avenue to explore and I know our friends here have many more avenues and thoughts for us to explore before the real truth comes out.

    Now on to Madison. I am in agreement with most everyone else one here. I don’t understand her need to be on the show at all right now and have doubts that she will ever have a real place on the show. I started out liking her in the beginning and thought the sparring between her and Kate could be interesting but really corporate espionage and involving Sami in that. I admit I was happy to see someone stand up to Kate, and Kate is just as sneaky but I would be willing to bet they will be wiping those smirks right off their faces. Kate is no dummy and it is my guess she will be turning the tables on the both of them. My other thought is, when Billie left the last time she was going to London to run CW, so is she coming back to step back into the business or try her luck at being a Keystone Detective again. If she is coming back to CW, then I am guessing there will be some interesting interactions between her and Madison as well and no matter what she is Kate’s daughter and blood is thicker than water. Kate’s children have always proven that cause no matter how upset they get with their Mother from time to time and want nothing to do with her they are at her side when she needs them.

    I am one of those that loves Melanie though way too big of a drama queen about her Dad leaving. I have mixed feelings about the pace she is taking with Chad. On one hand I am glad she is taking her time and really figuring things out before jumping into something. On the other hand, I am afraid if she stalls too long there will be someone else they put in place for Chad and I think he and Melanie make an adorable couple. But if it is true love, he will be a man and wait for her and I think he will. Just please don’t pull a Jennifer and not ever be able to make up your mind, though I was rooting for Jennifer and Daniel. Haven’t seen much of Jack lately.

    As far as the magazine saying this is the end of EJ, they have to put something on there to catch your eye and make you want to buy the magazine or do what I do and glance over it while waiting in line. Too expensive. I am guessing it has something to do with the mayoral run.

    Have a fantabulous day my friends

    On the Chad relationship with Stefano, I am glad to see that he is taking some time and putting some thought into this before jumping in. Good to see that money is not the important thing right now and Chad would like to do things on his own and see where it goes from there.

    ceelo I only agree in that it is getting so hard not to want to reach out and just say there there Will, please don't hate yourself, and I want to reach in and slap Marlena, Sami, Roman, Kate, Maggie all those who should be there for him and have failed him.
