    Queen Of The Night.

    Monday, May 21 2012
    Marlena faces Stefano, Austin makes plans, and Victor comes clean.

    At the Kiriakis mansion, Maggie asks Victor what he's hiding from her. They get into a big argument when he won't come clean. He asks her not to ruin their night. She is steaming mad knowing he won't be honest with her, and snaps, "Happy birthday!" She storms out.

    Roman, Bo, John, Hope, and Rafe bring Stefano into the police station. They book him as Shane watches. Stefano denies that he's panicking. Shane muses that he's facing Federal charges - trafficking illegally in arms. Hope says the Phoenix flew too close to the sun - his wings melted and he can't fly anymore. Stefano mocks them, but they are confident they've got him this time.

    At the safehouse, Carrie is stunned to think she might be pregnant. Marlena points out that she's late. Carrie says she's been under stress. Marlena talks about her wanting to be with Rafe, and how complicated it would be to be carrying Austin's child. The phone rings - it's Rafe. He says it's over, and tells her to come and celebrate. She hangs up and hugs Marlena.

    At the square, Lexi tells EJ the party made it feel like she was in Paris. They discuss Cameron, and EJ observes how carefree she looked dancing with Abe earlier. Lexi smiles, but wishes Stefano could have been there. Just then, EJ gets a call.

    Marlena strides into the station. Stefano clucks, "Ah, the queen of the night." Marlena tells him how delighted she is that he can't hurt her family anymore. She tells him he's broken and dark inside - she finds him pitiful. Rafe and Carrie leave. Stefano refuses his one phone call - news will travel fast. Stefano chuckles as he goes behind bars. Lexi arrives, followed by EJ. Stefano says Marlena, Bo, Hope, John - they're all alive - it was a hoax to trap him. He's charged with arms trafficking. Lexi wants EJ to get him out. EJ thinks he's guilty. Lexi says maybe he is, but every minute counts for her. Stefano says he'd refuse EJ's help anyway.

    Outside, Rafe tells Carrie it's time to get their lives back. She lets him know she loves him. They nearly kiss, but she insists on talking to Austin first. Rafe notes she looks pale, and suggests she wait to tell Austin. Carrie says she can't let him go on thinking they have a future.

    There's a knock at Austin's door - it's Billie checking on him. He complains about having to pretend his wife died in an explosion. Billie notices he's looking at houses. He says the visit to the safehouse went well, and he and Carrie are starting over. Billie jokes that twins run in Carrie's family. Austin says they've always wanted kids, but life got in the way. He tells Billie that he and Carrie are back on track. Carrie phones and tells him it's over. He says he's on his way.

    Victor catches up with Maggie at the pub. He wants to apologize. Victor says what he's going to tell her will hurt her - it's about Lillian. Maggie asks, "Daniel's mother?" She says she stole her eggs. Victor says she had help - from him. She asks what he did. Victor says he owned the medical laboratory where her eggs were stored and gave Lillian access - he was helping his friends. Maggie cries. She can't believe he kept quiet since she found out Daniel was her son. Victor talks about how in love with her he was, and says she'd forgotten about the eggs. Maggie says he hasn't changed. She's decided not to go home with him tonight. Victor questions why she's lashing out at him.

    Austin arrives in the square and pushes past Rafe to throw his arms around Carrie. He tells her he'll never let her go! He raves about what it's like to see her again and be able to take her home. Rafe looks on dubiously. Austin thanks Rafe, and he and Carrie head home. He shows her the houses he's been looking at - plenty of room to grow. He wants to dive in and start a family. She says she can't.

    Billie arrives at the station and chats with John and Marlena before stepping out with Shane. Roman announces that EJ and Lexi are visiting Stefano. Marlena and Hope happily leave after kissing their men. An official arrives and says he wants the prisoner, Stefano DiMera. Stefano is brought up and the CIA man orders him to be released immediately!

    Sneak Peek!

    The man from the CIA tells Roman Stefano's been working on a CIA project when trading in illegal arms.

    SPD is bedlam when everyone is angered that Stefano managed to dupe them again.

    Lexi is caught in the middle and collapses, worrying Abe and Stefano.

    HOLY COW IS THIS THE DAY AHEAD is this today's show???!!! COOL THANKS.

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Monday, May 21 2012 04:14 AM

    I have to read this update. So not use to being able to read it and decided do I want to watch this or not. but from friday's last comments and observations.

    but just in case you kow with them stating that Carrie -Christie clar is coming back -I wonder will she be pregnant?? or will they have her lose it so she can be carefree and try to win Rafe back. He doesn't seem to mind so she could come back with Austin's kid instafamily like he seems to like his women.

    Plus did you all check out John when he was arresting Stefano. He looked so different. Yesterday when I watched it I had an actor in mind John Travolta's look he has now.

    I also noticed another thing right before Lexi came to talk to EJ -he saluted someone with an extravagant hand gesture to top of his head to his chest like a thank you. I looked to see if the mime or if the accordian was walking away and the mime was a few yards away but not walking away. Any ideas?

    I was wondering if they would end up giving Carrie twins?

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Monday, May 21 2012 04:17 AM

    HECK NO. Victor had a home a private home to tell Maggie this instead he tells her in the PUB. ARGH why why why?!

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Monday, May 21 2012 04:22 AM

    AND THERE IT IS!!! Stefano was working for the CIA and buying arms from the arms dealer. HMMMM. Once again I have to wonder why and how and is this some way of helping EJ not be prosecuted for John's embezzelment. Sure, sure I read the recap and it stated that he(Stefano) said he would refuse EJ's help when Lexi is begging EJ to he get him out. In my heart of hearts of course I still can't imagine that Stefano has frozen EJ out and tossed him to the curb.

    Happy Monday all. I am glad that today's update is already here. Thanks Candace!

    Whooo Hooooo, today’s update is already up.

    I hope they don’t break up Maggie and Victor. Though Victor was way wrong to allow this to happen with Maggie’s eggs, I have to wonder if even he knew who they belonged to. Plus it was so long ago and Maggie got a son out of it even though she missed his childhood. I would just really like to see a couple make it through some of their struggles and issues instead of the towel always being thrown in. No one on God’s green earth is perfect but these people give up and move on so quickly without even giving it much if any thought. I am tired of seeing everyone break up with most of the breakups because of their lust after someone else’s spouse.

    Well we know the Phoenix will not stay in jail for long since he has so many people on payroll or should we say John’s payroll now since he took the money from EJ and did who knows what with it.

    Loved loved loved Paris for Lexie. Oh my just don’t know how much more I can watch of this though before really breaking down and bawling. Lexie just awesome as well as the rest involved.

    Come on, someone needs to be catching on to psycho Gabi. Really we need this again so soon after Abigail. Come on writer’s creativity. Like lets send Gabi packing since there really doesn’t seem to be a spot for her and she is lacking so far in the acting department. IMO

    What is up with Celeste and fearing for Cameron getting close to Abigail. Again, someone that really doesn’t seem to have a place on the show is Celeste or at least this Celeste. I love our original so probably not giving this person much of a chance but just not feeling it with her.

    Have a fantabulous day.

    Hi bearigan I can't imagine that Maggie will give up on Victor. She is upset and just needs time. Don't forget Lexi did this to Abe and then she found that she missed him too much.

    I've been wondering the same thing about what is the danger that Celeste see's in Abby that she wants Cameron far far away from her.

    I thought there was a rumor that today Will was going to hear about the stalking and be on and confront Gabi. I was so hoping to see that then maybe the others would just happen to be nearby and hear it.

    And along with you my heart is breaking at Lexie's illness and knowing we will be saying goodbye soon, I have to wonder too if that day I will be such a mess that work will just fall to the wayside. Might have to take off so I can cry in peace.

    Like Bearigan hope everyone has a great day. Gotta run.

    I have read a few times they will br bringing Carrie back again after letting her go. I say let her stay gone. There is Nicole that Rafe can be with and is so much better for him IMO. Carrie just isn't getting for me this go around.

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Monday, May 21 2012 05:21 AM

    Carrie was driving me crazy friday with her constant tugging on her robe trying to make sure it was closed?? I thought why not get dressed if you are so uncomfortable.

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Monday, May 21 2012 05:21 AM

    And no wonder this Arms dealing was off the ISA radar.
