    As Sensitive As Sandpaper.

    Friday, May 25 2012
    Kate gives Sami advice, Will comes clean, and Lexi says farewell.


    John and Marlena visit Lexi. The men go off together and Marlena asks how Lexi's doing and Lexi puts on a brave front. Marlena calls her on it and encourages her to open up. Lexi is thankful for the offer but she just wants to spend her time enjoying what little time she has left. Lexi is trying to say her goodbyes now, just in case. She apologizes for the awful things Stefano has done and they tear up and agree to enjoy every precious moment they have left. The men return and they drink champagne. The ladies go off to shop online for Theo and the men bond. John offers support to his friend. The ladies return to eat cheesecake and John comforts Lexi. He promises to be there for Theo and Abe. "I'll even take him to a damned Cubs game if he wants, as long as it's at Yankee Stadium!" Lexi laughs and feels lucky to call him her friend. John chokes back tears. They eat cake and Lexi feels tired so she goes off to bed. Marlena and John weep once she's out of the room.



    Austin and Carrie anxiously arrive at Daniel's office to confirm Carrie's pregnancy. Rafe and Nicole arrive and Austin goes off with Daniel to sign some papers while Nicole gives Carrie and Rafe time to talk. Outside, Nicole gossips to Daniel about Rafe and Daniel suggests she see another doctor. She's been putting it off. Meanwhile, Rafe is hurt knowing that Carrie's been having sex with Austin after professing to love him. Carrie shares that it happened after she learned he was having a baby with Nicole. Carrie's sorry Rafe found out the way he did. If the test is negative, she'll leave Austin. Rafe asks what happens if it's positive? Austin returns and finds Nicole with Daniel. He's not happy Carrie is alone with Rafe. Nicole claims Rafe's filling out paperwork and heads into Daniel's office to usher Carrie out. Nicole can see Rafe's worried that Carrie will stay married if she's pregnant. Rafe runs off and Nicole offers pregnancy advice to Carrie and tells her to take things one step at a time. Daniel confirms Carrie's pregnant.



    At the square, EJ gives Will some errands to run. Will is surprised to see EJ taking this so seriously. Will ignores a call from Sami and EJ assumes he's upset because Sami discussed private matters with EJ. He says Sami was merely looking for a way to make things right but Will says it didn't go down that way and he can't forgive her. EJ thinks Will may be wrong about Sami. Will snipes, "She shot you in the head." EJ grins and points out Will did as well. What happens if Sami really changes this time? Will calls EJ on taking sides but he's not. Will thinks EJ must be proud that Stefano is the big hero right now. EJ says he was in the dark about it all along and isn't happy that Stefano acted alone. It's not the first time Stefano has done this. Will gets a look. EJ goes on to say Stefano has been undermining him. Will's surprised EJ didn't fire him. EJ is confused. He plays along and gets Will to admit that Stefano forced him to make sure Rafe and Nicole knew about the grief sex.



    Kate overhears Sami leaving a message for Will at the pub and makes snide comments before asking what's up. Eventually, Sami explains what happened the day Will came out. Kate's surprised Sami didn't know and claims she's more sensitive. Sami snorts. "You're about as sensitive as sandpaper." Kate thinks Sami's focus on cheating on Rafe made her blind to her son's issues. Kate knows Sami felt guilty and it wasn't her intention to hurt Will. Kate's been there and she knows Will still loves her. Kate thinks Sami knew deep down that her son was gay. She's sure Will feels he has lost his mother because of this and tells Sami to be patient and compassionate and keep her feelings in check. Sami thanks Kate for the advice and they get back to sniping at each other.

    Gosh where to start???? skipped Marlena -ok I lied I watched the whole episode, I was reading internet at times about spiral staircases so I wouldn't have to listen to her voice but it was a good show. Can you believe John apologized over being insensitive over his comment about playing dead.

    I loved EJ and Will scenes. I was reading on the message board that flightygirl loves their scenes because both seemed to laugh so much and enjoy the scenes.

    I would like to take this time to wish all our posters that is on board now and those MIA or AWOL to wish each and every on a Happy and Safe Memorial Day. Hopefully we can all take some time to count our blessings and remember our loved ones that God has called home long before we thought was the right time, but it was in his time and we can hope they are all in his loving arms especially the small children in our lives that have been called home.

    I consider all my posting friends a blessing and hope to keep this board going for a long time yet.

    Hello poster friends. TGIF!!! I just finished work for the week and it feels wonderful even if I was just recently on vacation!!!
    I hope the board can keep alive even if it is week-end and memorial Day for all USA friends.
    I will surely have comments to share after watching today’s show... The update is quite interesting and knowing Will and EJ share scenes together, I’m over the moon!! Those two sure are captivating...

    OT... Chandler Massey was so cute at Paley center... I don’t know if Engineer Mom mentioned it in her post-event post (!), but this young man struck me as being so genuine, so authentic and amazingly articulate for a 21 year old. A journalist over there told us to check out for him... He said Chandler will be a MAJOR MAJOR STAR someday.... When I congratulated him on his nomination, CM looked me straight in the eyes, as he did The Engineer Mom, when signing an autograph for her. That spirit not only makes a star, it makes a wonderful human being!

    And AllmylovingDays - I'm still in shock that you got to meet JS in the flesh!! Lucky you. I wish I could see the picture you were talking about...

    I loved the line Sami used to Kateless..."You're about as sensitive as sandpaper."
    I really do notlike Kate and waiting for Stefano to bring it on and take her down. Carrie you can still be with Rafe and raise your child. It happens in everyday life. EJ and Will, they were good together today. Wish Sami & Will can just forgive. They have both been jerks to each other, so Will should really let it go by now. hey say Bo has a gun...he should being a cop in all, just saying

    Ok, time for me to be nitpicky – don’t the writers know that the Cubs are in the National League and that the Yankees are in the American League? Or, better yet, are the writers saying that the Cubs and Yankees will compete in the World Series? If that’s the case, John will NEVER be there for Theo (sorry Cubs fans)!
    In the past, I’ve been a Rafe fan but c’mon Rafe don’t be so naïve to think that Carrie would stop having sex with Austin just because she told you she loves you! Don’t you realize that very rarely does the other party win out over the spouse?
    Writers, let’s get real here!

    ChiSox1 LOVE LOVE LOVE the rainbow connection and VIVIDLY remember it airing on the muppet movie. I just dragged my kids to the last muppet movie because I wanted to see it...LOL!

    Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh bearigan! I thought I was the only one who was sitting there going, wow that chicks thighs are really big in comparison to the rest of her!!!!! The outfit totally exaggerated that too, and I don;t think it was a necessary choice from the wardrobe dept. I longer sweater/jacket would have been a MUCH better choice!

    bearigan & engineermom: As long as you both mentioned Gabi – after Melanie talked with Will at the coffeehouse, and was walking out the door to go to the DiMera mansion, did anyone think that was a B-A-D camera shot?
    I don’t know if it was the camera angle, the hot pink TIGHT pants, or what? Whatever it was, it sure was unflattering to her!

    bearigan I hope you are still here and read this, just wanted to wish you a good Memorial Weekend, also, enjoy the weather, family and friends, be safe. This year I've changed so much and will be doing whatever I can to honor those who are in the armed forces and veterans.
