    Wounded Bird.

    Tuesday, September 25 2012
    Melanie reacts after learning the truth, Sami and Rafe go on a date, and Daniel catches Jennifer...

    Sami flashes to Marlena's advice while wandering the square with Rafe. She glances sideways as he puts his hand on the small of her back.


    At Jenn's Nicole jokes with her active baby about needing a warm bath or a shot of vodka. She asks the baby to give her a break. Jenn walks up. Nicole's to move out once the baby's born. Nicole's miffed and wants all cards on the table. She brings up Daniel. Is Jenn going to be alright with him being around her? Jenn wants to stay out of their business and gives Nicole advice to calm the baby down before she goes.


    Daniel and Maggie walk into the pub with Melanie's wedding shoes. They commiserate over how desperate the kids are acting. Maggie mentions Melanie's run-in with Nick and how she feels he's no longer a threat. Daniel calls Mel courageous. Maggie nods - like him. Daniel disagrees and flashes to Jenn blasting him for helping Nicole. Maggie leaves when Sami and Rafe arrive. Rafe goes to Daniel and asks him to check up on Nicole because EJ's giving her a hard time. When Daniel leaves, Rafe comments on her little purse. She didn't think she'd need cab fare. She asks after Nicole. Rafe's surprised. Sami's trying - she wouldn't wish an anthill to fall on her head while she's pregnant. Rafe smirks. Sami's happy for him, knowing he must be excited about his son. He'll be a great dad. Rafe feels guilty. "There's something I have to tell you..." She offers to help if he ever needs it. Rafe's surprised Sami has told EJ he's out of the picture. Sami babbles about being excited to meet his baby. Rafe grins, touched. Things get awkward.


    At Daniel's, Gabi yells to Chad that she's not lying any longer. Melanie starts to go ballistic, thinking they were intimate. They deny it. Gabi says if she knew how much Chad loves Mel this wouldn't have happened. She tells Melanie Andrew wasn't a stalker and how she made it up and hired him. Melanie laughs incredulously as Gabi goes on. Chad's quick to tell Melanie he had no idea what was going on. Gabi tells the story and apologizes. Melanie cries and yells at her to get out. Gabi leaves in tears and Melanie guesses that Chad knew and kept it from her. Chad attempts an explanation. Melanie can't believe he was threatening Gabi. He'd have done that for the rest of their lives? He can't treat her like a wounded bird. They argue and she recoils at Chad's touch. She notices the blood on his hands and knows he hurt Nick. She starts to cry. He wanted to protect her. She cries that this isn't going to work and he sounds like all the stalkers, trying to protect and keep her... Chad's shocked. He starts to become emotional. She tells him there's no wedding.



    Nick collapses into Maxine's arms at the hospital. He knows Maxine's a friend of Melanie's and mumbles that she has nothing to fear from him. Gabi arrives and Nick notes that she looks worse than him. She says nothing and they agree she'll take him home. Later, Maxine goes to Jennifer's office to ask if she sent a print job to the nurse's station. Maxine found a list of DNA labs. Jenn runs to grab them and isn't watching. She bumps right into Daniel. Their papers go flying and Daniel questions her after seeing them. She covers but Daniel knows what she's really doing and tells her to stay out of it.


    Nick hangs his head as Maggie confronts him at home after seeing his face. Nick lies and says he fell but Maggie makes a fuss and soon discerns that it had to be Chad. She runs over to Daniel's. Nick questions Gabi on why she went to Melanie's today. Gabi told Melanie Chad beat him up and admits she needed to own up to being a rotten person, too. He's surprised. To him, she's a guardian angel.


    Maggie walks into Daniel's place as Melanie's kicking Chad out. Melanie bawls on Maggie's shoulder. Daniel walks in and hugs Melanie.



    Chad heads into his apartment in shock. He starts sniffing one of Melanie's sweaters.



    Rafe walks Sami to her door after their date. She waits for a kiss but he only kisses her head and turns to the elevator. He returns with a passionate kiss.


    Sneak peek!

    Gabi confesses her crimes to her brother.

    Sami jumps to conclusions about Rafe.

    Daniel blasts Chad.

    Melanie has decided to leave town.

    Good afternoon everyone!

    It's been ages since i posted but i am mostly settled in here in San Diego now!!

    I know lots of people are unhappy with lots of aspects of our show right now but i am LOVING almost everything!! I am still a few episodes behind, watching last thursday's right now, but i just couldn't wait any longer to get to writing down my thoughts!!

    1. I think Sami is behaving like an AWESOME soap opera mom right now!! To me she has ALWAYS been a great mom to Will, when he was little she was always super involved in his life and took great care of him, did she make a ton of mistakes, sure, but as soap parents go i think she is a wonderful devoted mother to her kids!! The way she has been there for Will lately is just so GREAT to watch!! And where is saint Lucas during all of Will's current problems?! He certainly has not been the superhero dad he makes himself out to be!! Maybe he's too busy looking after Allie, oh no he's not that's right he's WAY too busy insulting his children's mother to be at all interested in being there for either of his kiddies!!

    Did anyone see what exactly was on the papers Jenn was reading? Did she find out anything significant?

    Holdingon - per your last comment under yesterday's recap . . . it's not the shooting and the lying and cheating etc. that shows the chemistry between sami and ej . . . it's much more subtle than that. It's every single little glance they give each other, their body language, every gesture and movement, the tone and inflection in their voices and in their words. It has nothing at all to do with what has transpired between them, it's the way they interact together on-screen that is just electrifying. And the difference with Brady and Nicole is that Brady has always been a lap dog for Nicole, and he's better than that. He's been a good guy (for the most part), and she's always used and abused him so much. Sami and EJ are two peas in a pod and have a completely different relationship than Brady and Nicole's.

    I REALLY hope Eric doesn't come back as a priest . . . no one on this show is even "remotely" practicing Catholic values - lol!!! It makes no sense to bring a priest to Salem. He was a great photographer! Let him work for Sami at CW! It would be cute seeing the twinners working together after all these years

    btw - ChiSox, that was a great comment about not discussing Sami and her men the same way we try to steer clear of religion and politics . . . WHY are we so passionate about this one character and her men??? LOL!!! It really is so silly in the grand scheme of things!

    Signing off for now . . . have a great afternoon everyone!!!

    2. I so love Will and Sami's relationship!! They are SO much alike and i am SO enjoying seeing the way they interact with each other right now!! I don't want them to be all fakey and gushy like annoying Marlena and Carrie, i like that they have their ups and downs, but at the end of the day they are truly there for each other and understand each other and recognise both the faults and attributes in the other! They are a WONDERFUL mother and son pair!! Will's recognition of the fact that he is indeed his mother's son, realising that all the things he criticised her for doing he is also guilty of was wonderful and i hope it brings a new closeness between these two!! Sami has shown lately that she wants to be there to support her son and Will has shown that he actually doesn't mind his mother's help sometimes!!

    3. I absolutely ADORED the scenes with Sami and Kate telling off that busybody Adrienne!!!!! They were awesome and that is EXACTLY the kind of relationship i want to see between Sami and Kate!! I don't want them to be all nice and kind and lovey to each other and yet i don't want to see them desperately trying to destroy each other, i loved it a few months back when they had a kind of tentative and weird and strained friendship! I so ENJOY seeing these two in a scene together, they work so well with each other and they have their relationship worked out just beautifully, they are a JOY to watch!! They are both SO alike, they are crazy, vindictive, self-centred and yet 100% completely devoted to their children that they would quite literally go to any lengths to try to do what they think is best for them!! I am hoping MANY more scenes like this with these two are in store in the future!!

    ITA Little Bear!!! I'm LOVING Sami and Will FINALLY having these awesome mother/son moments. AND, I'm totally enjoying Sami and Marlena's new relationship too! This is such a welcome departure from how they've always interacted in the past. Okay . . . little bear . . I REALLY need to go wake up the baby from his nap or he won't sleep tonight . . . see how easily I get pulled in by my fellow awesome posters!! ;-)

    4. Hahahahaha . . . i could not stop laughing when i watched the scenes with Lucas berating Sami once again when he dropped off Allie's things at Sami's!!!!! Could he make it ANY more OBVIOUS that he still has feelings for Sami?! Why else would he go on and on and on and on and on about how OVER Sami he is?! He has totally had his poor little ego wounded because Sami is just not into him anymore, nor has she really been into him in a VERY long time!!!!! He wants Sami to want him as badly as he wants her and that is just SO not going to happen!! He looked so PATHETIC yelling at Sami in her apartment, oh and i laughed so much when she told him to keep his voice down!! He is totally not the right man for Sami because he does not care one inch about Johnny and Sydney!! At least both Rafe and EJ care about ALL of her children and that is just not true when it comes to that annoying little pest Lucas!!

    5. I am so TOTALLY loving Nicole and her insane craziness right now!! This is absolutely COMPLETELY true to Nicole's character, she has ALWAYS been a scheming but needy little girl, going to any lengths to get what she wants no matter how much it hurts anyone else!! She is SUCH a DELIGHT to watch right now!! I just LOVE every scene she is in!! Seeing her focus her rage on Jennifer, which i'm positive is going to end badly!! Her manipulations of Rafe and Daniel and refusal to see the pain she is going to cause them by sucking them into her silly little schemes!! Her complete hypocrisy, and her complete blindness to it, in attempting to keep EJ's baby from him despite what she did with Sydney, all of it is SO much FUN to watch, because i KNOW it is all going to end up blowing up in her face!! I am SO hoping that EJ takes that baby from her and raises it with Sami!! Not forever of course, i would just love to see Nicole's hypocrisy play out with her losing her baby to Sami and having to see it bond with her and call her mommy!! That would be totally SUPER!!!!!

    25yrs....Yep...they do all that....but that is not
    LOVE...............You don't go around messing around
    when you LOVE someone...its not the human way to play
    the game. More like two people with an affair going on
    behind their spouses backs!!

    So...he is trying to blackmail Rafe to keep him away
    only to have it backfire in his face!!!

    I think Nicole will do great with whomever the writers
    decide she be with...........and perhaps it will be
    Brady for keeps this time. He will be there for her
    this time around too!!

    Gabi should consider herself lucky...but did you
    notice....she came clean only to bring someone else
    down with her!!! Big deal!! What a trip!!

    A real friend to Mel...........sure...with friends
    like that....Mel sure doesn't need enemies!!!! gheez!

    Chrissi: What do you think of this storyline?
    Does it leave you reeling too?? The writers sure
    know how to mess up relationships...

    6. Oh my golly goodness . . . Chad is totally awesome to watch right now!!!!! I love watching him slowly, little bit by little bit, work himself slowly into insanity!!!!! Totally super scenes!! He is just driving himself crazy with imagining all that Gabi and Nick could be doing!! He is going to destroy his relationship with Melanie all on his own! Pressuring her into a quick wedding . . . focusing all his own guilt onto Gabi and Nick . . . lashing out at others like telling Brady that he should have been with Madison the night of the explosion instead of helping him save Melanie's life!! All wonderful!! Hopefully a little bit more of Chad's Dimera side will start to emerge, it should be interesting watching him implode!!
