    You Weren't Supposed To Leave Me.

    Monday, October 08 2012
    Nicole's overwhelmed by emotion, EJ fields a call from Stefano, and Lucas fixes things with Will.


    EJ, at his desk, angrily picks up Stefano's call, saying he doesn't want contact. Stefano thinks someone has hurt EJ and wants a name - he'll make them pay. EJ ends the call.


    At home, Sami tells Rafe if he and Nicole are keeping a secret from EJ, she can help them get away with it. She says she understands wanting to keep him from the baby, though he's been a good father to her kids. Sami says she's all in. She assures him she's seen the light where EJ's concerned - she should never have trusted him. Sami tells Rafe she could get EJ to confide in her so they can stay a step ahead of him. Rafe says she seems excited at the prospect of getting close to EJ. Sami says they have to trust each other and be honest. Rafe insists there's no secret, and accuses Sami of not wanting Nicole's baby to be his - she needs to tell him now if it's a problem. They kiss.


    Nicole tearfully watches Daniel interacting with Jennifer in the hospital waiting area and flashes to being told her baby is dead. Nicole returns to her hospital room and cries, "This isn't happening! My baby's not gone. Daniel, I need you. Why are you with her?" She throws the baby gifts on the floor and sobs that it's so unfair. Nicole talks to the lost baby, Daniel Rafael, who wasn't supposed to leave her. She has to get out of there, but has nowhere to go. She freaks out until she spots a scalpel. In the waiting area, Jennifer stalks off angrily when Daniel refuses to discuss Nicole with her. Kayla notes the tension. Daniel phones someone he needs to see. In her room, Nicole holds the scalpel and imagines Daniel coming in and telling her he's back with Jennifer. A nurse enters and Nicole puts the scalpel down. The nurse yaks about the computers being down and everything being recorded on paper before offering congratulations and leaving. Nicole stuffs her file in her purse and cries while picking up the baby clothes. In the waiting area, Jennifer tells Kayla about her trouble with Anne. Kayla thinks Jenn may want to quit because of Daniel and Nicole. Jenn denies it, but admits she thinks Nicole is changing Daniel and she can't watch it. They each leave as Nicole walks to the elevator.


    Kate tells Lucas, at the pub, she's plotting to bring down Sami. Lucas sighs. She asks what's going on. He says it's not about Sami or Will; this time he's the problem. He says he saw Will and Sonny kissing - in public. Kate observes that gay people do kiss. Lucas says it was one thing to imagine what they might do behind closed doors, but it made him uncomfortable to see it. He tells her he couldn't hide it from Will, who told him they have nothing left to say to each other if he can't accept him for who he is. Kate says Will is right. Lucas complains that it's hard for him. Kate says it's not up to him who Will falls in love with. Lucas worries that Will thinks he's homophobic. Kate says he'll have to prove him wrong. Lucas knows what he needs to do. Later, EJ enters. Kate pegs his miserable look as being due to Sami Brady. EJ won't discuss Samantha, but tells her Stefano called him today. Kate's not surprised he didn't ask about her. EJ muses that it's like Stefano knows when he might be tempted to fall back into the devil that is Dimera. Kate wonders if EJ will let Stefano back in his life. He says he's done with that man.


    Victor watches Will flirting with Sonny as he enters the cafe. Victor and Sonny step aside. Sonny admits they're more than just friends. Victor assures him he's fine with him being gay and just wants him to be happy. Sonny says he is happy. Victor invites Sonny and Will to come over sometime before leaving. Sonny says 'Uncle Vic' is a great guy. Later, Lucas enters with something to say. He talks about what an ass he's made of himself and tells them they have something special. Will hugs him.


    Daniel visits Victor at home. Victor talks about when Daniel was born and being a part of the man he has become. Daniel says Victor was always there when he needed him, but this isn't one of those times - he knows where he's going. Victor says he's a good man. They embrace.

    In the park, Nicole tears up her file from the hospital and puts it in the trash. Billie passes by and tells her she's got that glow. After, Nicole spots Rafe in the square after he's kissed Sami goodbye. She walks toward him.

    At home, Stefano tells someone by phone that he can't convince EJ to come back to the family, so he's the only hope he has.


    Daniel returns to the hospital and tells Jennifer she doesn't have to leave - he will.


    Sneak Peek!

    Nicole and Daniel confirm plans to move to Utah.

    Jennifer unleashes anger toward Nicole at Billie.

    Rafe admits he does forgive Sami.

    Since today's update is up I thought I'd carry over my comments from Fridays board!


    Posted by little bear at Sunday, October 07 2012 05:42 PM

    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    mrs.vannatter - i agree with you 100% I am loving our show too!!

    Finally getting around to watching Firday's show . . .

    1. Sorry to all Nicole fans but i found the scenes in today's episodes a little blah!! I was expecting so much better from AZ and the writers but i was really disappointed!! I didn't feel the real emotion AZ usually puts into everything she does, she she was crying, but i don't know i just didn't really feel anything watching her laying out the baby clothes and then crying about never getting to hold the baby, i was just left feeling kind of blah! I don't think it was just AZ's acting that i felt was a little off but the writing as well! I just don't think they seemed to put much thought of effort into the scenes, especially in comparison to when Nicole had the miscarriage that led to the whole Sydney and Grace nightmare!! I'm pretty sure i am going to be the only one who felt that way but that's okay! Hopefully the rest of this story plays out with a lot more emotion!!

    2. Well i think every single Sami and EJ fan should be THRILLED about their scenes today!!!!! ✾◕ ‿ ◕✾ Sami said EXACTLY what we have all been saying and pinpointed the reason why she and Rafe will never work out and why she and EJ are destined to be together!! Sami said that she was being herself when she and EJ were slowly starting to find there way back to each other, she wasn't pretending or playing games or trying to be something that she wasn't, and that is exactly why she and EJ will work out because EJ is the only person who Sami actually feels comfortable being herself around!! And what Rafe and Sami have been back together for all of two minutes and already Sami has resumed her "little girl" persona, fumbling about lying that EJ was watching them at the Horton Square, and promising she wouldn't lie again!! Sami knows deep down that Rafe does not love the real her!! And speaking of Rafe and Sami getting back together, what exactly has changed from what broke them up in the first place?! Rafe is only not with Carrie because she dumped him, and Sami has not changed who she is, the only thing that has happened to 'change' things is EJ wanted Sami back!! And since Rafe and Sami never worked through what broke them up they will not last!! So once again i hope all Sami and EJ fans are smiling . . . (✿◠‿◠)

    3. I have to say that i thought the way Daniel was treating Jennifer was awful!! Was Jennifer being a bit nosy getting involved in Daniel and Nicole's situation . . . yes, is Daniel a grown-up and can make his own decisions . . . yes, BUT . . . Jennifer cares about Daniel and was only attempting to help him out! I do think she should have respected what he said to her when he asked her to back off and that he knew what he was doing . . . but it is hard to see someone we love and care about do things that we know are going to hurt them!! Now we all know the reason that Daniel said all of that was because he still loves Jennifer but he has gotten it into his head that he MUST help Nicole, maybe he is still grieving the loss of Parker and wants to try to fill that gap in his life with Nicole's baby! Anyway he does not at all love Nicole, and is totally going to dump her eventually and go crawling back to Jennifer!!

    4. Awwww . . . i just love little Ciara's voice! It is so sweet! And she is such a total little cutie-pie!! I think is would be fine to see Bo, Hope and Ciara set off to sail around the world like Bo and Hope did with Shawn when he was little, i think the show could go on just fine without them and it would be great to have them return in a couple of years with a teenage Ciara! It would also be pretty easy to phase out little Theo, as he and Abe don't really have a storyline going at the moment anyway it wouldn't be much of a loss to not see much of him and then have him aged to a teenager to upon Ciara's return! I always chuckle when i see Theo and Ciara together as Theo was born YEARS before Ciara and yet now they are the same age!! But i totally think that is set up the right way Theo and Ciara could actually be a supercouple of the future!! Oh and to carry on from the Sami's children discussion the other day, the main thing i get frustrated about with her kiddies is we see SO much more of Johnny and Sydney than we do of Allie! Can't wait to see Allie develop some Sami like tendencies as the forgotten twin when she reaches teenagehood!

    5. Happy to see Rafe not trying to get all high and mighty and self-righteous with Nick!! Rafe has committed his fair share of crimes, and Gabi is responsible for the mess she found herself in because of her obsession with Chad, so he really had no reason to not want Nick to hang out with Gabi, plus Nick has really been a GREAT friend to Gabi and there is such great potential for them to be a really nice couple so i was glad to see Rafe keep his hypocritical hat off his head for once and acknowledge that Nick has helped Gabi out and that Nick is not such a bad guy!! I did think it was an odd comment by Nick when he said that people see him and don't even want to walk past him on the street or whatever it was, why on earth would anyone even know about him? I do not know all the ex-convicts in my area!! I could have a conversation with them and wouldn't know it!! And all the Horton's were totally, and a little crazily, on his side so i just thought it was a bit of a silly comment!! Oh and speaking of silly where is little miss crazy Julie now that Nick is out of prison?! Has she even been to see him once?!

    I want to start off by saying, I loved Friday’s episode and personally thought AZ doing an amazing job. My heart was breaking for her. How horrible to be this far along and everything going fine just to find out your baby is gone. But on the flip side of the coin, there are just too many things in my opinion that is not adding up. First we have a doctor that is leaving as soon as the exam is over, next she says the computer’s are down (and I do understand how that can happen) but the ultrasound was working and I do believe that is a computer. Now the electric is off and they haven’t fired up the generator, yeah, the gift bag with the baby things in it, Nicole was not due for three more weeks. I think they are going to bring her in to induce, put her out and deliver the baby C-section and whoever Stefano has hired will leave with the baby, but Nicole will feel it in her heart that her baby is not dead and she will go to the ends of the earth to find little Eli.

    Ej and did Nicole proved they can go this alone and act amazingly. We will always see Ej alone after he tries manipulating a situation and it doesn’t work out. He should have learned by now that is not the way to get what you want, but then that would not be Ej. It is sad that so soon Lexi’s wish for the family has been forgotten. On the flip side of this coin, we could think that Sami and Ej are working Rafe too. They could have hatched this plan for Sami to get back with Rafe, talk all about being honest and she spills that Ej texted, to get Rafe to trust her enough to tell the truth about Nicole’s pregnancy and she will report back to Ej, then they will go after the baby. Just some of the things with her and Rafe aren’t adding up to me either and I think this is a plan to bring him down with Nicole and Daniel. The truth will come out about the baby and we all know it.

    Not much into the Bo storyline so will zip my mouth on that one.

    I am just so excited with all the potential storylines right now and can hardly wait to watch every evening. Also, so nice to open up this morning with today’s recap, but reading just cannot compare to watching.

    Have a fantabulous day.

    First of all, wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians!

    Also, @littlebear- I’m glad you made an observation about what Sami told EJ and how admitting she was not playing games and was herself with him were what could totally bring them back together. If Sami finds out Rafe is protecting Nicole with his lie, she will freak out. She’s so demanding for the truth now (except for herself), how will Rafe’s untruthfulness not affect her ?

    It still doesn’t make any sense to me that Sami would want to be with who she presumes is a hero (talking about Rafe here!!). She's not even saying she loves him... only that Rafe knows what love means...
    All her life, Sami has been scheming and eavesdropping and planning to get what she wanted even if it meant playing the bulldozer. Now, she seems to be forgetting all her personal needs and wishes. She's only trying to please... It is so different from her real personality, isn't it?

    Or as a lot of fans around here have been saying, she really needs to take time-off from the men in her life and have some «spotlight on me and my kids» time.
    I suggest yoga: it does wonders to bring the focus back on what matters!!

    Where is everyone. I thought there would be tons of excitement on here today after Friday's show and how amazing everyone was at their jobs in Salem. So many possibilities right now that I cannot wait to see how they all turn out. I actually felt pain for Nicole, so sad, just wish they would let her have her baby and then deal with the huge lie she, Daniel and Rafe have going. Though I too would like to see her have a child with someone that really cares for her for who she is also. Have to wonder if her and Eric will pick up again when he returns and we will have The Thorn Birds.

    Posted by makesmehappy at Monday, October 08 2012 09:34 AM

    Bearigan- For your info, I read that the actors playing Nicole and Eric have been shooting a lot of scenes together since he got back... I know Eric is now a priest but not sure how he will react to seeing Nicole again and if she will throw herself at her ex-love-of-her-life...

    Posted by everlena1973 at Monday, October 08 2012 10:39 AM

    Hello all!!! I am totally enjoying the show! Last Friday's show was great! Nicole is really good at what she does. Where in the heck is John Black? I can't remember the last time I saw the man! I hope this Fall will bring on some even better shows, I'm really hoping that it will

    Posted by bearigan at Monday, October 08 2012 10:58 AM

    Makesmehappy, That does make me happy that Nicole and Eric are shooting. I think there is a huge potential for a great storyline there.
