    Days Recap: Rode Hard.

    Wednesday, January 22 2014
    JJ enlists Bev's help, Abigail asks EJ right out if he killed Nick, and Hope is told something surprising about Ciara.


    NBC Universal Inc.

    From home, JJ calls someone and says Abigail cannot get into trouble. This is the one chance he has to take Theresa down. Jennifer arrives. Shouldn't she be at work? She should but jokes, "Wanna write me a note?" She searches for the folder Abby left her which JJ has hidden. Finally, she goes and Bev arrives. She's not happy with him for being MIA. He wants to make up for it and lays it on thick. He likes her. She thaws a little and he asks her out on a casual date. Casual because there's a good chance he's going to prison. He asks her for help and explains Theresa's blackmail. Bev calls Anne about candy striping. Anne's disinterested until Bev talks up her bigwig father. She gets an appointment.


    Abigail brings treats to the church and sees a ten commandments plaque and shivers. She flashes to sex with EJ and tells herself it's not adultery because he's not married. Julie finds her. She swore off sweets since the marijuana doughnut fiasco but talks about Nick's disappearance. Julie insists Nick's not sending those texts. Abby flashes to EJ trying to keep her from speaking to Hope. She needs to talk to him.

    At the Kiriakis mansion, Henderson tells Brady to get to the hospital. Eric and Nicole almost died last night!

    At the hospital, Theresa hears from Daniel about Nicole and Eric. Hope says she'll get to the bottom of it. Brady arrives and Theresa tells him where Nicole and Eric are. "My uncle Roman would say you look rode hard and put away wet." Hope interrupts and says Eric and Nicole are fine. She fills him in on details and Brady berates himself for ignoring calls. Meanwhile, as Jenn arrives, Theresa puts on an act and asks Dan to reschedule dinner. Later, Brady spots Hope showing Daniel the police artist's sketch of Chyka. His jaw drops. He saw that man at the airport. He explains what happened and Hope says she'll check into it. She runs off to a parent-teacher conference and Brady's guilt gets the better of him. Jenn finds Daniel and calls him a hero for saving Eric and Nicole. Theresa interrupts so Jennifer wanders away. Theresa toddles off to an AA meeting. Once there, she is told Maggie's not coming. Now she can't score points with his mom.

    Stefano calls someone from the DiMera mansion to make sure "that idiot doctor" has left town. EJ questions him. He's talking about Chyka, right? EJ asks where to find the doctor. He's out of control and needs to be stopped. Stefano refuses to give it up. They play chess and Stefano thinks it could destroy him, not help things with Samantha if he brought Chyka to justice. EJ admits he doesn't know much more than what Samanther thinks he knows. Stefano warns against crossing his sister and says Chyka will rat on EJ to the police. Later, Abby shows up at the back door and questions EJ about Nick. He lies and she catches him at it. He tells her not to listen to Julie's rantings. Abby says he played her. EJ denies it. Abby runs to talk to Hope but EJ grabs her. He tells her to keep quiet and kisses her forehead. Abby asks if he killed Nick.

    At the apartment, Sonny coaches Gabi on how to talk about Nick to Hope. Will arrives and she gives orders for them to follow before she heads to the church. Sexy guitar music plays and she thanks them for being there for her. Sonny calls them family. Once she's gone, the guys kiss.

    Hope has a parent-teacher conference with Father Matt and learns there's an issue between another classmate and Ciara. A man walks in - Aiden Jennings, and says he's glad she made it to take care of this. Her daughter's out of control. Hope is confused. He tells her he's Chase's father. Hope doesn't know what he's on about so Aiden tells her Ciara's harassing his kid. Hope thinks he's out of line but Matt says Ciara has been harassing Chase.

    Brady returns home and tells Henderson Nicole and Eric are fine - no thanks to him. He takes a drink.

    Daniel finds Jenn at the Brady's Pub. He's about to tell her how things really are between him and Theresa when Liam arrives with flowers, for a date with Jenn. It's awkward so Dan takes off.

    Gabi arrives at the church and flashes to marrying Nick there. Julie finds her and drones on about Nick's disappearance and her concerns.

    Theresa is about to leave the AA meeting at the hospital when Brady blows in high on alcohol.

    Salem Spoilers for the next Days Of Our Lives:

    Eric has a hard decision to make about where his life is going and Nicole.

    Laugh when Julie mentioned the pot donuts from the book club. So our little Ciara is harassing a little boy. That Aiden is sure one hunk of a man. Lololol.

    But WHY do You think Alison S. make this announcement so far in advance?? Seems TPTB would want them to wait. NO??

    I heard DOOL contract has been extended to 2016. Congratulations for the show but soaps are really on a life line. Been watching them since the late 70's and for the few years they have started announcing if the shows contract has been extended with the networks.

    zuzu: I agree with you – it does seem very odd that she would be allowed to make such an announcement so far in advance especially because she is such a MAJOR star of the show. You would think they would want to keep it quiet for as long as they can so that they don’t lose viewership.

    Yes He is LGM!!
    Aiden is a GOOD-LOOKING man!!
    (missed the end. After reading your comment, I had to go back and take a glimpse of this Hunk.)
    My first impression.. He is also a GREAT actor!!! Whoa!!

    Just went and checked Jason's 47 contract status and alot of our characters contracts are coming up this year. Alison just renewed hers last month for a year. But alot of our main characters contracts are up within a few months. So we will probably be hearing about alot of negotiation pretty soon.

    Great show today!

    I'm a little disappointed that JJ is going the conniving route like this, though at the same time I think his father might have done the same thing. If only Daniel was a more constant presence in his life I think JJ feels desperate at this point and will do whatever he thinks he has to do to free himself but I hope he doesn't get himself into huge trouble. On the positive side when I saw Brady go for the alcohol I realized JJ is alot stronger than him, even though he's getting himself into some trouble at least he's not allowing his guilt to drive him all the way back to drugs.

    Theresa shut up and get out of Daniel's face. And BTW I think he's on to you now.

    Liked it when Jen said to JJ, "In case this studying for Mom show is over when I leave, don't waste your day." We're seeing shades of the old Jen who hadn't lost her mind yet coming back. I think she's also kind of aware that Theresa is playing up her relationship with Daniel now. Wonder how many times Daniel has to blow Theresa off before we move on? lol

    Oh and Abby... if you think EJ killed Nick don't go to HIM. Geez.

    That's Great!! So we know we have DOOL for a few more years!!
    In the past (almost) 50, we've lost some Great ones and some some NOT so great.. But we're all still here!
    If they want to leave, let'em leave. I wish them all the best in their careers and happiness.
    After my first glimpse of this new actor today, and if he's as talented as my first impression.. Then there's more out there looking to come ENTERTAIN DAYS FANS!!! Who knows! Maybe this will be the greatest years of all!!!
