    Shut Up DiMera.

    Thursday, November 08 2012
    The truth comes out, Sami and Marlena have a heart-to-heart, and Kristen opens up to John.


    At Jenn's, when Nicole refuses to talk in private, Daniel confesses he knows Jenn didn't kill her child. The baby died before the fall. Nicole cries and denies it. EJ and Rafe burst in unannounced and EJ demands to know what's up. Daniel tells him, "Shut up DiMera." He'd love to smash his face. Daniel has proof. "Someone's lying," she insists so he shows her Dr. Sedwick's notes she made on the plane. Nic crumples the document and bawls. EJ reads it in shock. Daniel tells Nicole she knew the baby was already dead before she fell down the stairs. Jennifer starts to cry. Rafe comforts Nicole who cries, "Twice, Rafe. Twice." He gently gets her to confess she knew the baby was already dead. Daniel tears up and EJ yells. Daniel tells them the baby died due to a placental abruption. He comforts Nicole which makes Abigail furious. She starts shouting about what Nicole put Jennifer through. Everyone clears out and Nicole tries to explain to Daniel how she came to this place. She blames Jennifer for making her crazy and for making this horrible thing happen to her son. She starts to yell and Daniel screams at her to stop it. Later, when Nicole disappears while he's talking to Jenn, everyone rushes to find her.


    From her office, Sami looks over Nick Fallon's application.

    Nick and Gabi make love in her room during a break. They talk about sneaking around from Rafe. Both receive calls and rush to dress.

    From the square, Marlena's patient calls to cancel their appointment. Hope encourages Marlena to charter a boat to Smith Island. Ciara runs by for a hug. She's off to visit a friend. Marlena gazes after her and thinks about time lost with Sami during her childhood.

    John walks into the Horton cabin and sees Kristen. He goes off on her for stalking him. She yells that she's sick of the judgment. John calls what she's doing trespassing. "Of all the cabins in the world, why did you decide to walk into this one?" The ferry horn is heard and Kristen rushes to leave but John stops her. She misses the ferry and yells that this is his fault. She can't get cell service to call a water taxi. John mocks her and accuses her of setting this whole thing up. They bicker and she shows him her key Alice gave her. Kristen builds a fire. She wanted to see the place where she last felt truly happy. She flashes to sex with John. She tears up. The cabin reminds her of who she was before she started to hate. John squints at her and offers his coat.

    Sami waits for Nick at the pub. When both Gabi and Nick rush in looking flustered, Sami confronts Gabi about them dating. She agrees to keep it from Rafe. Gabi gushes about how Nick gets her. Sami asks her to be careful. Gabi runs off and Sami warns Nick not to hurt Gabi. Sami gets down to business and offers him a job. He tells her about his other job offer with Kate. She asks him to consider working for her and on her way out she leaves a message for Kristen. Gabi heads back upstairs and Nick's naked in her bed bathed in candle light. They profess their love for each other and have sex.

    Hope and Marlena have coffee at the Coffee Bean. Sami walks in and Marlena takes her aside and says she was out of line by demanding Sami quit her job. "Who are you and what have you done with my mother?" Sami asks. Marlena's face freezes as Sami talks about feeling stressed today, wondering where her boss is.

    A disturbed Nicole runs up the stairs at the square and flashes to falling. Daniel, Abby, Rafe, EJ and Jenn find her holding the scalpel. She yells at them to stay away.

    Sneak peek!

    Nicole's facing charges.

    Abby tells Cameron she's moving on.

    Kristen tells John exactly what she wants from him.

    I really liked this episode. It's been a while since I've said that.

    Have a nice read and a good day, guys!

    Today's sounds so good and I so hope I have a chance to get caught up some. Actually this whole week has sounded good. It is like we are getting our old Days back and me likey. I do have to wonder why Kristen would have a key from Alice to the cabin and why she picked this particular time to go. It sounds as if John is no completely over her, or he is falling for everything she is telling him. She sure is bringing back some excitement to the show though. Here we go Gabi and Nick cannot stay out of bed.

    Hi Chrissi - I agree!!! This episode was great! Although, I've been liking the show for several weeks now Just wanted to let you know that the issue with the video ad popping up all the time on my smartphone has started again. Not sure why as it was gone for several days, and I was really enjoying catching up on the board from my phone ;-)

    bearigan - you should read Kristen's bio on the cast list. Alice Horton was the one who initially set up John & Kristen. I believe she gave them both a key, and that was the first time they met "romantically" and made love at the Horton cabin (hence the flashbacks in today's show).

    I felt sorry for Kristen today. It's odd to me that John doesn't have some sympathy for her knowing who she was before she went off the deep end (and knowing everything that caused her to do so . . . on top of losing her baby and then John, Stefano started playing a more significant role in her life, which explains A LOT)!!! John came very close today to remembering the old Kristen (whom he'd fallen in love with), and I enjoyed that scene. I really want to see more of that because they were so sweet together when things were good. I loved how Kristen reminded him today of how much Alice liked her This is what I remember too, and I hope their little time alone at the cabin will bring back some of the good memories for John cuz I agree with Kristen that the constant suspicion and "yelling at her" is getting on my last nerve - lol!

    I really enjoyed the confrontation scenes with Nicole today. AZ was brilliant, and so were Daniel and Rafe. I was happy that Jennifer kept quiet. I liked how Daniel handled the situation and also thought Rafe was great how he stepped in to gently get the truth from Nicole and then comforted her when she finally let it out. I kept thinking PLEEEEEZE put these two together!!! They are AWESOME together!!! I have no idea why the writers won't go there?!?!

    Now, the things I didn't like about the Nicole scenes . . .
    I really wish they hadn't made EJ start yelling at Nicole. It was totally out of place in the whole scene when everyone could see how fragile Nicole was. This was as poorly written as the time last week when they had EJ pushing her around. I sooooo desperately want these writers to get EJ "RIGHT" this time!!! I'll remain hopeful as there are some positive signs (esp with his new relationship with Kristen)!!!

    Brady was a little too quiet for my liking. Not so much with Nicole (since Daniel and Rafe were already handling her fragile emotional state pretty well). Rather, I wish he would have said a bit more to Jennifer after the truth came out, and I'm hopeful that an honest and apologetic conversation between these two WILL happen because he REALLY needs to apologize to Jennifer (for everything Abby mentioned in her tirade). And Abby's tirade . . . while it was spot on, and everyone in the room needed to hear what she said, I HATED how Daniel (of all people) was telling her "ABIGAIL, NOT NOW!" and pointing his finger at her. Jennifer was already telling her to stop and holding her back. It was not Daniel's place to act like her father in that moment, and it really bugged me. Everything else was GREAT, and I LOVED the ending with Nicole standing on the steps at the HTS in the exact place she was at the time of the accident. I sort of felt like today's show could have easily been a Friday cliffhanger episode, which makes me even more excited for what will come in tomorrow's show!!!

    Not sure how I feel about Nick & Gaby. They are sure cute & sweet together, and it's nice to see Gaby in a happy relationship for once; BUT, I'm still not a big fan of either one of these characters. I think her s/l will get more interesting if she does end up pregnant with Will's baby, but then that puts Sami & Rafe back in each other's worlds, and I really don't want to see that happen. I'm hoping that, if the s/l does go this way, Rafe will already be happily involved with someone else, and he'll only have to deal with Sami for the sake of being an uncle to her son's child. And, I also agree with the poster who wrote (some time ago) about why they never show these young, unmarried kids using (or discussing) protection!!!! They certainly used to throw this issue into the s/l whenever a new couple got together for the first time, but now it's like it's old fashioned or something to discuss it, and then everyone in the town ends up pregnant, and we get a "who's the daddy" s/l every six months or so :-(

    Also wanted to comment on something that was mentioned earlier this week about Chrissi being out of a job if the negative talk about Wilson continued . . .

    I thought that was a very strange comment since there is negative talk about EVERYONE on DAYS - lol!!! I can't think of a single poster who's ever held back on stating their dislike for certain characters and/or storylines. That's what we come here to do, and that's why Chrissi HAS a job

    Some people love Wilson and some don't; just like some people love EJ and some don't. Some love Nicole and some don't. Some love SAFE and some don't. Some love Jarlena and some don't. I feel that there is a ton of extra sensitivity around Wilson because this whole gay s/l thing is new and people are afraid to say they're not enjoying the storyline for fear that they'll be attacked as being homophobic or against equality, or something like that. And, to be honest, that's exactly what happened when we started discussing this s/l, and THAT is completely unfair. Everyone is entitled to like and dislike whatever they want, and as long as everyone's being polite and respectful. Particularly on this board, I think we've all pretty well managed to respect everyone's opinions (or at least politely tolerate them) while keeping things friendly here on the board. I really hope it continues because everyone should feel free to come here and say what they like and what they don't about characters and storylines (without being personally attacked), and the Wilson s/l is no exception

    BTW - totally unrelated, but "little bear" I LOVED your heart to ceelo on yesterday's board!!!! That was the CUTEST!!!!

    I've got to run for now! Look forward to reading more great thoughts on today's show when I come back later tonight!!!!

    I would actually possibly enjoy Days again if Jennifer and Daniel would leave. It's weird because I started watching Days because of Jennifer and Frankie and then Jennifer and Jack. Now, I can't stand her.

    Nick is such a hypocrite. "It's not right for Sonny and Will to be in a relationship". But premarital sex and lots of it is okay! If you're going to use religion in a script do it in all truth. But since this is a soap where no one pays for their crimes trying to poison people, shoot people, kidnap people, hide babies so what's the point.

    Posted by wash_08 at Thursday, November 08 2012 12:51 PM

    Ditto, Rita H.
    Why did they bring her back anyway? She's a little too long in the tooth for Daniel. I'm not saying there's something wrong with a younger man, older woman, but when you've grown up watching Jenn it just doesn't mesh. She get's on my nerves! Too bad she didn't try to save Jack as hard as she's trying to save Daniel who is a male gigolo if you ask me. I see them pairing Rafe w/Nicole or Hope. And when Chloe returns, Daniel will want her back. At least Billie was smart enough to not let him jump her.

    Hello all. I am fairly new to DOOL and brand new to the board. I read your comments everyday and wait on pins and needles to read the update each day. I am really impressed with the storylines of this soap and the fact they move at a decent pace without the viewers becoming bored or restless. I also enjoy all of the characters so far and their interaction with each other. I hope to post regularly and keep up with you guys as much as I can... I'm really glad the truth came out about Nicole and the baby and am anxious to see where and with who she goes from here. The past few weeks have been great. Love Brady, so goodlooking, needs a woman for sure... talk to you soon.
