    Check And Mate.

    Friday, May 18 2012
    Stefano falls for Bo, Hope, John and Rafe's deal, EJ makes an admission, and Gabi has more stalker news.


    Lexi is thrilled that EJ, Abe, Chad, and Cameron brought Paris to the square. She feels special and thankful. EJ says, "Well done, Abraham," and Abe says Melanie tutored him in French. He croons, "Je t'aime," and in turn gets a kiss and a dance. Abby's glad EJ and Abe aren't at each other's throats and mentions being close with her own brother. She learns that Cameron knows JJ from St. Albain school. EJ takes off while Melanie and Chad have their caricatures drawn. Gabi shows up and Abby and Cam stare at Abe and Lexi wistfully while Abby notices Gabi's jealous gaze on Mel and Chad. Gabi asks to take Chad aside. Lexi goes to her brother. He tells her Paris becomes her. She thanks him for Paris and for getting along with Abe. She asks if he's alright and he reluctantly confesses he's not. She assumes it's about Nicole. He admits he misses her more than he could have imagined. Nearby, Celeste consults her Tarot cards and Chad tells Abby that Gabi's been getting phone calls from her stalker. Abby wants to see Gabi's phone but Gabi gets uptight and refuses. She deleted the calls, which were blocked, anyway. Elsewhere, Lexi tells her brother that she sees him living a wonderful life. As much as he screws up, she sees good things happening.



    Victor walks in on Maggie's birthday dinner. They kiss and dine. Later, Henderson jokingly asks how many candles he should put on the cake. Victor tells him, "None." He doesn't want to burn down the house.



    Sami whines about hearing that Will went to Marlena for advice. Lucas chastises her for talking to EJ about a private family matter and for running out on Will. Sami begs Lucas to help her fix this. She loves Will no matter what. She explains why she ran off. Lucas tells her Will and him are alike. They get really angry with her and then forgive her. They hug and Sami expresses her fear. She goes to find Will and Lucas leaves a message for Will, telling him they love him and Sami's on her way to apologize.



    Carrie wakes up, startled from a nightmare and calling out to Rafe. Marlena's in her bed and relieves her concerns about what's going on with the others. Carrie runs off to throw up. Marlena makes her some tea and they discuss Carrie telling Austin the truth and how she feels about Nicole's baby. Carrie respects Rafe for commuting to Nicole and her baby. It makes her love him more. Carrie takes Ibuprofen for a headache, and Marlena asks if she's late. "Do you think I'm pregnant?" Carrie worries.



    At Pier 19, Bo, Hope, Rafe, and John discuss what to do when DiMera gets there. Bo mentions how Shane's recording everything in a surveillance van. When Stefano calls, Bo fakes a "Russian" accent and pretends he's Nevsky. He tries getting Stefano to continue negotiations. Stefano agrees to meet. He turns up later and comments on the disguises. "Nevsky" claims he has had security issues and doesn't want to be photographed. Stefano heard he had another buyer and demands he deliver what he paid for or else regret it. He makes a show of telling him he's not intimidated and is unarmed. "Nevsky" says they've a deal. Stefano hands over the money and "Nevsky" says they've everything they need. Everyone pulls off their disguises. "Looks like it's check and mate," John says and Bo arrests Stefano, who smiles.



    Lucas shows up and Maggie rushes into his arms. She's glad he's staying in Salem. Victor's surprised Lucas remembered his birthday. They make small talk and Victor pointedly asks what it's like to be working with Sami. Lucas thinks it's good for the kids. He wishes Victor a happy birthday and Maggie sees him out. Victor and Henderson discuss Lucas' visit. Henderson admits Maggie prepared dinner this evening. Victor wants to ensure Maggie stays happy. She can never learn the truth. Maggie walks in and has heard.



    Sami interrupts Lexi and EJ's conversation at the square. She loves the Parisian motif. She tells EJ she's off to find Will to make things right. Celeste tells her son about the danger surrounding Abigail. "Your cards say whatever whack thing it is you want them to say." Celeste calls him foolish. Melanie and Abby discuss Gabi's stalker. Melanie lets it slip that she and Chad haven't been getting a lot of alone-time since Gabi moved in. Abe has the accordionist play Lexi's favorite song and they dance.


    Sneak peek!

    A man in a suit arrives at SPD to demand Stefano's release.

    Maggie blows up, Victor thinks she's overreacting and Maggie walks out on him.

    There's a thread on the message boards. About the stalking. I agree.

    NO comment either on the warehouse. I just can't. If they see or read these comments they would think we love it. NOPE.

    Daddy was in his stern let me tell you daughter how ashamed I am in your bad bad ways. Why do they have these women act like they gobble this up--maybe that one book 50 Shades of Grey - isn't that the premise -yes daddy tell me what I am doing wrong I love it ..it gets me all hot and bothered take me now. JEEZ.

    I am enjoying Abe & Lexi's love and from that Lexi's love for her brother EJ.....and I am very very THANKFUL from that came the EJAMI scenes. Loved how Sami was standing against the wall and EJ was leaning into her. (You all know the scene from While You Were Sleeping-LEANING-accepting).

    allmylovingdays, I think we are all happy that they are putting Sami and EJ together a lot lately. They have a connection like no other and she just needs to realize Lucas will never fufill her needs the way EJ does and will. I love watching the two of them together though I have to admit was not a big fan but changing my opinions on that every time I see them interacting. It is truly amazing.

    I am thinking a lot of tears for our Lexi that is finally getting to shine. I think she will be missed and sorry the writers did not do better by her in the last few years.

    Have a fantabulous weekend my poster friends.

    HOW SWEET!!!! Lexi and Abe !! I LOVE his laugh.. So sweet and so sad.. Is she SURE she wants to leave.

    Lexi and EJ love each other so much..

    ugh to Carrie waking up, "Rafe, Rafe".. vomit.

    Does Sami ever see her other children? Or does her poor "Old" Grandma have them while she runs around talking about me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me !!!!! AND, before she finds her child, in time of crisis, she has to find EJ first. So Needy.. "Lucas, you have to help me", but first I have to run find EJ...

    ugh to ISA BS !!!! Boring.. fast forward !!!! Stefano is the "Big Boss" and he is, personally, doing his own deals..

    Puke.. to Gabi.. PLU-ease.. she is a nut case.. Enough already.. This is ridiculous.

    Yuk to Celeste reading her dang "cards"..

    Please don't let Maggie and Victor break up.. She deserves so much happiness..and he finally Loves someone..

    Please let WILL bust Gabi...

    Have a good weekend Bearigan.

    Anyone have a clue what song was Lexi's favorite.

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Friday, May 18 2012 12:03 PM

    I would love it if Will did clue in Chad & Melanie but we at least got Abby looking at her now like she has recently seen this behavior and she can't believe the stunts some crazy girls will do......

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Friday, May 18 2012 12:04 PM

    Maggie will forgive Victor like any couple on a soap they were too happy so they were backburned this is getting them something to deal with and overcome..

    Posted by feelingfrisky at Friday, May 18 2012 12:08 PM

    Maggie LISTEN first, then run off with Henderson! LOL!!! EJ and Sami make WAY better sense. So Stefano will get off this charge. Billie shuld be in the DiMera mansion getting the coin back while the "cops" have Stefano for 5 minutes. Ian trying to destory Brady does not make any sense. Ian's marriage to Madi makes less sense. So when Stefano fakes his next death...WHO will be going to jail? The writers could drag this one on FOREVER. UGH! OH, and Gabi...fall in the lake somewhere...a frozen one...ALONE
