    My Head's Going To Explode.

    Tuesday, August 20 2013
    Kristen learns whether or not she's pregnant, Kayla gives Abby advice, and Theresa goes after Daniel.


    NBC Universal Inc.

    Theresa drags JJ away before he finds Daniel kissing his mother in her office. Inside, Jenn begs Daniel to hide. She pokes her head outside. JJ's gone. Peeved, Dan again makes it known how he refuses to live a lie. "My head's going to explode," he says, panting. Jenn gives him information for his photo shoot for the magazine and things are tense so he leaves. By the hub, JJ apologizes for being a jerk to Theresa but becomes jealous when she talks up her 'new guy'. JJ leaves and Daniel catches her eye. He drops his envelope and she picks it up and reads his address. JJ returns to Jenn's office and finds Daniel's pen and questions her. She says they were working together. He assumes Daniel was bashing him and tells her about his run-in with Daniel earlier.


    Kayla goes to Cameron's office to ask for an update on Chad's condition. He tells her Chad went to a specialist and from the look on Cam's face, Kayla knows the news is bad.

    Abigail wanders through the new club and finds a drink Chad created called the Abitini. She loves it. He toasts to her father, making her choke up a little. She discusses the beautiful memorial and worries about how much losing their dad has changed her brother. Chad offers to talk to JJ and then asks her to be his date at the grand opening tonight. Abby's face falls when she hears Cameron encouraged Chad to spend more time with her.

    Victor has invited Marlena to the mansion to discuss forming an alliance against Kristen. John's out of town, so he can't help, and Maggie doesn't have the capacity to get 'down and dirty'. Doesn't Marlena wish she could make Kristen go to hell? "Do not pass Salem," he says. She laughs. They'll start with Kristen's greatest weakness.

    Kristen holds her pregnancy test at home when Father Eric arrives. She hides it and lets him in. He hands over papers but can tell she's got something on her mind. She says she's worried about Sami and wishes she could help. He tells her to pray and she laughs. She doesn't have much of a 'direct line to the guy or gal upstairs'. He disagrees. He leaves and she grabs the test and calls Jenn over. When Jenn shows up, Kristen tells her she's not pregnant. She tries to make light of it. "No miracle baby for me," she says, looking glum.

    Theresa drops off the envelope to Dan at his apartment. She asks him out for drinks but he isn't interested. "Not even close." He tells her to keep their contact related to the hospital. She takes off and thinks she must be losing her touch.

    Marlena finds Eric at the rectory. She hears he's working with Kristen and when he starts praising her, she laughs and tells him Kristen's playing him. She gives him a warning then runs to get Sami's kids.

    At the hospital, since Cam's on a break, Abby goes to Kayla for advice on the two men in her life. She was ready to make a decision until she heard Cameron encouraged Chad to date her. She assumes Cam's trying to let her down gently.

    Cameron visits Chad at the club for an update on Chad's health. Chad says, "I'm still dying." Cameron wants to help him beat this but Chad doesn't even want to discuss being sick. Cameron sighs but agrees to let it go tonight. Chad rubs it in that Abby's his date tonight. He jokes that he'll bring her back to his place and make love to her all night. Cameron doesn't crack a smile.

    At the square, Rory and JJ ponder whether or not Dr. Dan knows something about his dealing. They decide to be super careful. He just has to make sure his mom's on his side.

    Theresa sends Vargas a text from work about tonight. She asks if he has a real name or if she has to call him Vargas. Anne interrupts and she asks if Dr. Dan is seeing someone. Anne laughs and tells her it's Jenn. Theresa joins in the laughter and Anne shakes her head, recounting the constant breaks and break-ups they've had. She's so over it.

    Dan goes to Eric at the rectory, worrying JJ will come between him and Jenn forever. They talk about Eric's illness. Eric has the distinct feeling something awful happened to him.

    Back at the mansion, Kristen talks about the pregnancy scare and tells Jenn over the phone to keep it quiet. If Brady found out she had sex with someone else while they were apart, it'd be over. Nearby, Marlena raises an eyebrow.

    Salem Spoilers for the next Days Of Our Lives:

    Marlena conspires with Victor over what she overheard.

    It's the grand opening of the club.

    Someone's date ends in violence.

    I think the title is talking about some of who want to see a great soap and are waiting and waiting

    We need time for families to be together.

    I wonder how MarMar will get the evidence that Kristen had sex with someone else

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Tuesday, August 20 2013 11:22 AM

    And does she really want to investigate truly cause this isn't going to be happy news

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Tuesday, August 20 2013 11:25 AM

    So LGM and I both are wondering what the blue lined meant on the test is she telling us the truth....I think she is she seemed a bit disappointed

    Condes I read that article and loved it, i noticed tariro mentioned when she watched her Korean shows certain type of bloggers helped with the unfamiliar customs. i am a stenographer type except when I am rolling my eyeballs over what is being played out on my screen and I need to hold back a comment or two

    Haha sometimes the titles relate to how I'm feeling when I recap though today was alright I guess. Not much happened. The new club is nice though has huge windows like a church.

    Chad you cad, trying to get into sweet Abbys panties with Abi-tinis!
    Why Victor, why wait until now to team-up with Marmar to go after Mrs.
    Doubtfires Kristen. You should have offered to get her as soon as she
    stepped off the DiMera jet! This soap opera almost writes itself let
    me guess hmm. Dr. Cam steps aside, Cad steals Abbys virginity, Abby
    gets pregnet, Chad dies and Dr. Cam steps in gets leftovers and agreeds
    to be father to Chads child? Am I the only one that finds any screen
    time that is given to psycho K is a waste of time? I do hope Dr. Dan
    will ask Jenn out for the labor day sock-hop! Enough already Jenn you
    need to spank JJ and give him a huge time out. Wow what a tramp t is!
    I wish the writers would have the ghost of Madison comeback and haunt
    her and Jack see what a loser JJ is! That should have been the show for
    the one year anniversity of Gabi's scheme. It most be a DiMera curse
    to be a good DiMera means you die so if that is true EJ is still evil
    at heart. Psyco K is not only talking to her self but also answering
    the voices in her head too. I think that is the early signs of Lindsy
    Lohan stage one insanity. Tramp T is so thickhead thinking that Dr.
    Dan would have anything to do with her. She needs to stick with the
    teenage boys or girls don't want to be politically correct. I do hope
    Marmar really did hear that but still Dum dum Brady is to stupid to
    do anything about that info. He reminds me of that owl on the commercial
    that keeps saying WHO to everything.

    Well, it is very appropriate that Dr. Dan would be the man to utter the line that became the title of this episode! Since I read this, I’ve been thinking of the song, Start Me Up by the Rolling Stones, and I can’t get it out of my head! Somehow it is very appropriate for Dr. Dan and the pained expression that is always on his face! Here’s just a bit of the lyrics. Let me know if you agree with me that this should be his theme song

    "Start Me Up"

    If you start me up
    If you start me up I'll never stop
    If you start me up
    If you start me up I'll never stop
    I've been running hot
    You got me ticking gonna blow my top
    If you start me up
    If you start me up I'll never stop

    Of course, there’s more to the song and I think it all really fits the present and past of Dr. Dan the Love Man!

    I'm really getting tired of this blasphemous writing. If the writers want the characters to be evil, they just need to leave religion out of it. I'm disgusted at the different lines being dished out. If you're not going to revernce God, don't say anything a all. TIIC are good w/filling time w/stupid and repetitive dialogue anyway.

    I've been watching Jenn for MANY years and seems her life has always been this way and I think she likes it.. Jack was always running off and their relationship reminds me of this one with Dr. Dan.
    Today together, tomorrow not!!! frustrating.
    Seems Abs is just like her Mom. I think they like 2 men in their lives and they can NEVER make a decision..
    They're always in agony trying to decide!!?? Which one?? Do I? Don't I?
    Wanting the man to chase them around and beg.
