    For Better Or Worse.

    Thursday, May 03 2012
    Ian has something up his sleeve, Shane Donovan arrives to help those in the safe house disarm the bomb, and Kate confronts Ian.


    Madi gives Brady a quick kiss before rushing out of her office, in a snit.



    Chad arrives at Lexi's office. She tells him Father's going to need him soon. EJ stands outside eavesdropping as Chad tells Lexi that Father has a son and doesn't need him. EJ enters the room and Chad feels ganged up on. Lexi admits she asked him there to tell him she's got a brain tumor and is dying. Chad's in shock. He demands EJ do something but EJ explains the specialists all agree the tumor is too advanced and inoperable. Chad yells that she can't give up and starts to weep. He hugs her. She breaks down while telling Chad that Theo will need them since any change to an Autistic kid is a challenge. Lexi asks that EJ look after Stefano. It's a shame he doesn't have Kate. Chad agrees to be there for their father and Theo. EJ tells Chad, "I think it's time you came home." Chad says she's the one person in their family who made him want to be a part of it. Lexi's touched. Chad tells EJ it is time he came home if there's still a place for him. EJ hugs him and says the timing is perfect. He winks at Lexi. EJ gives Chad tips on how to deal with Stefano and urges him to take after Lexi. Chad plans to talk to Stefano, finally feeling that for better or worse, this family is his.



    Carrie panics at the safe house when she spots Roman outside. Roman tries to enter but is blocked by John and Bo pressing their weight against the door. Hope shoves a note under the door telling Roman about the explosives wired to the alarm system and how they think Harmon's a double agent. Roman sends a reply. "Don't worry. The cavalry is here." Roman sends a walkie talkie down the chimney and Bo's able to tell Roman more details about the bomb. Carrie talks to Roman, explaining how claustrophobic she feels. He comforts her. Carrie paces and Rafe jokes that she'll wear a hole in the floor. Marlena distracts her with talk about work. Roman tells the gang ISA Agent Shane Donovan is there with them. Everyone's relieved to hear his voice and he seems positive he can get them out in one piece. Shane asks the men to describe the bomb while Roman tries tracking Harmon down. Rafe suggests they make a blast wall while Bo starts cutting wires. Bo cuts one last wire and Shane congratulates them. Everyone hugs each other in relief. Suddenly, they notice the timer was activated. They've one hour...



    At the square, Ian wishes they could go away together. Madison interrupts and Kate leaves them alone so Madison can rant at him about delaying their divorce proceedings. She thinks he's trying to use the company to distract her but it won't work. She wants to work out a property settlement. Ian admits he found someone else. Madison's realizes he's with Kate. Ian calls her thick. She must have known.



    Brady finds Kate at the Coffee Bean. She tries making Brady jealous by telling him Madison tore her away from Ian to talk. Brady shrugs. Madi and Ian work together. Brady realizes Kate's the reason Ian's granting Madison a divorce. Brady warns her about Ian dragging his feet over the divorce. That doesn't bother Kate. Brady adds that he doesn't think Ian's over his wife.



    Brady returns to Titan and Madison explains she went to see Ian because she thought he was playing games with her. Ian claims he wants the divorce as much as she does. They discuss just finding out that Kate's with Ian now. Madison's glad. This means she and Brady finally have a future.



    Ian paces the square and tells someone on the phone that Madison finally believes he's giving her a divorce. He laughs and tells the person on the other end to get what he requested and pretty soon he says, "She won't want to have anything to do with him." Kate finds him and asks if he's done with Madison. Ian tells her this isn't a game and kisses her. He loves and wants her.


    Sneak peek!

    A huge explosion rocks the safe house.

    Sami notices EJ's a wreck and offers him an evening with the kids.

    Sami and EJ drink and talk and eventually, there's an electric moment...

    A mystery man shows up to see Ian and gives him a pouch of potent contents.

    Chrissi DAMN WHY DID THEY EVEN GIVE US THIS SHOW TODAY. In my area we are told high risk for storms and I was worried that weather people would continue to disrupt. The HOUR WAS AGONIZINGLY LONG.

    Shane arrived. Thats about it for me.

    Not even the Lexi scenes with EJ could fix this mess. Chad, please.

    I laughed bigtime in the very beginning when the damnbomb didn't explode after ROMAN pulled and tugged and was going to throw his body against the door even. He put his key in the door. HE PUNCHED NUMBERS into the pad to deactivate the security system. NOTHING NO BIG KKKKKAAAABOOOOOMMMM. You know who set it off...the bumbling ISA/SPD clowns.

    Poor Chad and EJ. That is all I can say on that. Stefano I really wish you would bring Kate down!!! She can't even be civil to Brady, she HAS to try to make trouble. Why? Cuz she is a witch to say the least. Her and Nicole should just drop off the show. The safe house bomb is BORING. Oh and Please we all know I want Sami with EJ, but I HOPE they don't do another s/l involving sami + lucas + ej AGAIN. That is how she had the twins.

    FEELINGFRISKY - I didn't know you were proEJ& Sami??

    I thought after watching that boring stuff of kate, brady, maddie and ian that whatever this thing is going down with Stefano right now, Kate is being played for a fool she should have stuck with Stefano so when ian dumps her sorryass she will only have her self to blame.

    Hi to all, ok here is my way of thinking on today's show....just a tad boring re:Madison/Ian/Brady and Kate...very yawn-worthy if there is such a phrase! Safe-house, predictable, again, jmo here. Now re:Lexi telling Chad that he needs to step it up with his dad and EJ telling him 'to come back home'....uh, ok, Chad moves back into the mansion...btw, not that sure if he ever lived there to begin with but anyway, he moves into the mansion, letting Missy Gabi alone in his apartment and of course she ain't gonna like that but she's not to be moved into the mansion coz Stefano really don't like her plus she is afraid of him so stays at Chad's old place, still wanting to cause trouble between Chad n Melanie....

    Posted by bashfungirl at Thursday, May 03 2012 12:24 PM

    Um, Chad and Melanie can be together now without Gabi interfering, still my thoughts here, haahaa. Um Kate getting really miffed over Chad being there even tho it was her idea in the first place. Gabi stops telling all those lies re:her 'stalker' then proceeds getting on with her life and meets a new guy! Yeah, well it could happen ;-

    Anyway, for me the Chad/Lexi/EJ scenes today were great! And ya just knew the so-called 'safe-house' was not safe at all...plus I was wondering why Bo didn't finish cutting that third wire, seems to me I'd have done that one too, just to be on the safe side, ahh well, it's just a story.

    Well...I spent my rest hour watching the stupid show today..
    the only thing worth seeing was Shane being there...love
    his voice!! He was a riot on The Nanny....!!:))

    Got a feeling EJ will keep his place...especially if
    Stephano completes his "bucket list" before anyone
    else knows!!

    Thanks for caring breathtaking...and a minute is
    pretty good...any way you slice it eng. mom....a
    quick smile goes a long way and that doesn't take
    a minute!!

    Allmylovingdays....don't let the show get you all
    crazy like a fox....its just a show....although
    you guys invest a lot of time and energy in DOOL..
    pay attention to what is real and what is not!!
    You think I do Japanese poetry????? Really!!!! ))


    Posted by holdingonfordearlife at Thursday, May 03 2012 01:01 PM

    You guys wonder why Shane didn't tell Bo to cut that
    remaining wire??? Who writes this stuff??? So we are
    left with a clifthanger again this week-end...like we
    were last with Stephano NOT telling ej??? Gheez!! We
    know nobody in the safe house will be harmed...and
    we know Carrie has already finished taping and leaves
    in June....so...who gets hurt???? BO?...since he
    like Lexi....is getting the haddees out of Dodge!!
