    Salemites arrive in New Ross, Ireland

    Wednesday, January 30 2008
    Crawford accepts a deal, several Salemites show up in Ireland to find Claire, but they find something else!

    Chelsea, Stephanie, Morgan, Cordy and Billie meet at Salem PD in order to talk to the police about Ford's death. Stephanie calls Max to ask where Ford's body is but he again refuses to say. Billie tells them that their main concern is to keep them out of prison and tries to comfort the emotional ladies. Roman arrives with Crawford Decker at his side and tells the sisters that unfortunately, the DA signed an arrest warrant and Chelsea will be charged with the murder of Ford Decker. Crawford sarcastically tells Billie she should be so proud. "I am," Billie says quietly. Her daughter isn't a murderer. Stephanie yells that they didn't murder Ford and Decker lowers himself to calling her bawdy names. In her anger, Stephanie goes after him but the girls hold her back and Roman instructs Mr. Decker never to call her names again. Arguing ensues until Billie steps in and asks everyone to keep quiet. Roman tells Chelsea she needs to stop talking and get legal counsel. Decker wants the ladies to plead guilty to murder but Billie says it won't happen. She wants him and the DA to agree to drop all charges and promises if he does, they'll produce Ford's body. Roman takes a call to the DA and lets everyone know that they'll agree to the deal if Mr. Decker will, but Decker refuses them. Steph tells Decker that he can go ahead and take them to trial. She, Cordy and Morgan let him know they'll come clean about Ford being a rapist and asks if this is what he wants to hear at Ford's eulogy. Mr. Decker doesn't want that for his son. He just wants Ford's body, so he finally agrees to drop all charges if they tell him where the body is. Max walks in and tells Mr. Decker that he knows where the body is.

    The air is thick inside the Kiriakis jet, as Philip and Shawn have difficulties being in such close quarters. Chloe worries that they'll never find Brady and flashes back to telling Philip about Brady's disappearance and the warning she received after he was kidnapped. Belle notices that Shawn can't take his eyes off of her. Shawn and Philip share a few more barbs and Belle asks them to put aside their differences for Claire. Shawn isn't ready to do so. Belle opens up about Philip and wonders if he'll forgive her. She tells him she was weak when she had sex with Phil but isn't in love with him - it was all a big mistake. She professes her love for Shawn as he listens quietly. Chloe and Philip give the two some alone time and go off behind a curtained area. "I didn't think you needed to hear any of that," Chloe says. Shawn tells Belle he loves her but isn't sure how to trust her again. Belle tells him she has always loved him, even when she married Philip. Shawn says she needs to take responsibility for her actions. He thinks if Clare ended up being Phil's daughter, they'd be together still. Belle refuses to think that way. Chloe returns and Shawn goes to Philip. He tells him he doesn't hate him but he's ticked off. "I can handle ticked off," says Phil. Shawn remembers they were best friends and Philip reminds him that they're family. Shawn notes that they're a lot alike and Philip jokes they've the same taste in women but thinks Belle belongs with Shawn. They agree to put their differences aside and look for Shawn's daughter. They shake on it.

    Meanwhile, Chloe tells Belle she's jerking both men around. Belle brings up Brady and wonders if she's interested in Shawn but Chloe professes her love for Brady and thinks Belle and Shawn belong together. Belle tells Chloe that Shawn's her soul mate and she doesn't want anyone else. She asks if Chloe wants Philip back but Chloe says she only wants Brady.

    Bo and Hope get lost while driving through Ireland. Bo struggles with driving on the right side of the road while Hope tries to read directions. Hope gets a call from Interpol. They are told to head to a town called New Ross. Somewhere along the way as Bo starts to worry about Chelsea and Hope takes over driving while Bo navigates and takes a call from the New Ross police who claim they've lost Crystal. Bo stares at Hope's beauty and with a smile playing at his lips, he tells her that seldom men look at their wives and still see the woman they fell in love with. They flashback to their first meeting and their wedding day, a trip in a hot air balloon and skinny dipping at a lake. Later, they arrive in New Ross and Bo shows Claire's photo to some people. Someone recognizes her and says some woman brought her into the nearby Bed and Breakfast. They investigate.

    Marlena and John arrive in New Ross, Ireland at Aubin Bed and Breakfast. They argue about John going off to search on his own and Marlena remembers she has drugs she can use on John if needed. Two men come down the stairwell and John and Marlena ask for a room for the night but they're sent away. They claim to be full but since nobody's in sight and its quiet, John doesn't trust them and wonders if they've something to hide. Marlena tells John it's time to go and before they leave, John tells the men, "Your hospitality is starting to warm the cockles of my heart." The men appear happy that the two have left, but after they walk away, Marlena and John sneak back into the B&B and go on a search upstairs.

    Marlena worries that John will kill someone but he says he is unarmed and won't kill anyone. Marlena searches him at his request and enjoys the closeness of it all! Once they get inside a room, John quietly picks up a steak knife he sees, on a plate of half eaten food.

    Bo and Hope arrive at the same Bed and Breakfast that John and Marlena are at. Hope takes a call from Shawn while Bo checks the B&B out. Hope shares their news with Shawn that Crystal was seen bringing Claire into the Aubin B&B in New Ross. Shawn doesn't tell her where he is but whispers to Philip that he's got the name of the place. After he says a quick hello to Bo, Shawn hangs up and the gang prepares to head to New Ross. Bo finds the two men that Marlena and John spoke with earlier. They ask for Crystal and Crystal comes down the stairs and tells the men its okay. They can look around but they're too late.

    Next on Days Of Our Lives:

    Sami tells EJ she was notified of Lucas' trial date and is expected to testify.

    Shawn tells the men at the B&B they're looking for Crystal and Belle lets them know they're not leaving there without her.

    Bo looks at Colleen Brady puzzled as to who she is. He asks, "Who's this?" Hope says, "It can't be." Marlena says, "That was my reaction, too."

    Dang I wish I could call in sick and watch this today and tomorrow. But since I am already at work and the end of the month is real busy for me I guess I will have to do with Chrissi's awesome updates.

    Yeah for the Theta girls and Billie working a deal with Mr. Decker. I am glad that no one is going to be punished for the horrible accident and that Mr. Decker gets his sons body for burial.

    I am also proud of both Shawn & Phillip pulling together to help find Claire. Hopefully this bond can continue until Shelle & Claire leave town in March.

    The Ireland contingency is getting bigger and bigger. Can't wait to see Bo/Hope & John/Marlene's reaction when Shelle & Phillip & Chloe show up.

    I wonder what Crystal meant when she said "They're too late"? Have they moved Claire somewhere else... if so, who has her since Colleen & Crystal are both at the B&B...

    Man - can't wait to hear everyone's comments on the update and after they watch the show.

    GA..we need to get you soapnet..or a dvr...
    I'll watch for you..
    Man that has to suck...IM sorry..
    You are the early bird this morning!!!
    I think this whole week is going to be good..then Friday we will be left with mouths wide open...

    I hope the ratings soar on these story lines!!!!!

    The conversations on the flight sound awesome. I'm so glad to read this. I can't wait to see it unfold. This is how it should be. Peace!!! Yes. It's about time. I hope it's real!!!!
    I hope Mr. Decker keeps his word about playing fair with the girls once Ford's body is produced. Who thinks Ford's body won't be wherever Max left it??? I just have this gut feeling there's going to be another twist with this. None the less, I'm dreading Max getting in trouble for his involvement!
    I can't wait to see the romance between Bo & Hope. I love them together and their entire story, both the ups and the downs... they are amazing. I'm freaking out about John & Marlena. I think this is going to get very intense. I can't wait to check out this steak knife live and see how deadly it really appears. At this point, it seems far fetched that a steak knife could be all that dangerous... but of course, anything can be a weapond when you're a well trained soldier.
    Does anyone find it ironic that the Salemites are across the world and still always manage to end up in the same place? A little far fetched, as are many things on this show... but exciting anyway. So, Crystal also happens to be there... but no Claire... and now the young bunch knows where to search. I hope they don't screw things up. They seem to be good for that. Especially poor little Shawn.
    YES!!! Colleen's on tomorrow. I can't wait to see this. Woo Hoo.
    This is going to be interesting... I can tell!!!!!!
    Have a great day everyone.
    Good morning Earlybirds, Gapeach & Tunes

    Gapeach, I think first Bo & Hope will be shocked to see Marlena & JOHN! That's intense. Everyone should be on their toes with John on the loose!!! I think Bope will be angry when they discover the kids are there too. Must be nice to have a jet to use at your fingertips, aye? Interesting how so many people in Salem do. It would be fun if Donald Trump made a guest appearance on Days one day. He should be a man from Kate's past. Wouldn't that be funny? I say this because no one there has a real job or at least no one ever goes to work, but private jets are very abundant... in a Trump sorta way... lol.
    Tunes, I'm sure Friday will give us a heck-of-a cliffhanger. I'm pretty excited about this week...but I bet next week will be even better.

    Chrissi, Stupid question here but I'm short on time to research the answer... question: How can I change the email address on my account here? The current one is about to expire. Thanks. And, thanks for the early update too.

    Tune2Days--- you know you can watch the entire show on your computer/laptop by going to I watch Guiding Light and Young and the Restless that way. It even gives you the option to watch full screen just like on TV. Its pretty awesome for the ones that have to work all day and depend on updates to have the option to watch from your computer at home.
    Anyhow, have a great day!!

    gapeach 76, tunes and suzrocks: I was gonna wait until after the show to comment but wanted to pop in and wish everyone a GOOD MORNING!! Don't worry gapeach, I have to tape tomorrow's show due to an apt schedualed and I would rather not go and see the show. Boy, am I an addict or what?
    Everything is moving so fast and i hate to miss an episode.

    I don't trust Crawford Decker at all. I think he will agree to something just to get his son's body back and then he will turn on them. Just yesterday, he told Steve that "You have no idea who you are dealing with." GO STEPHANIE!! Tell that SOB about his sick son. If I was her, I know I would flip out and it wouldn't be pretty to watch. I am glad that the girls are getting the support from their parents to help them through this ordeal.
    I am on the edge of my seat to see Colleen Brady. My heart is racing. I feel like a kid again!!!(LOL)

    luvnshwn: There are some of us, like me, w/an old computer that needs updates and I am not able to view it via the computer. Lucky you!!!

    I loved when Bo was driving on the wrong side of the road,, I've been to England and I wasn't used to it but I also loved when they remembered the early times they were together... I"m glad Chelsea doesn't have to go to jail.. I wonder where Claire is too and what did Crystal mean by that?? I'm happy to see Shawn/Philip trying to work things out...I'll be happy to see EJ/Sami tomorrow...

    Posted by nanaof8 at Wednesday, January 30 2008 07:27 AM

    Wow!!! This is the show I have been waiting for. Everybody back together and happy. I still like the suspense and obstacles they encounter, but this is getting me in the mood to anticipate what will come next more than ever.

    I love each s/l and the way it is taking place and bringing the Salemites together once again for a common purpose--the theta girls, Claire, John and Marlena together again, Shawn and Belle reuniting in love and family, Phillip and Shawn being friends again, and the anticipation of the fact that anything can happen during this new journey in Ireland.

    I can't help but wonder if there is another link in this Ireland thing that is the reason that Claire is not with Crystal. Is there someone else in the picture that has a tie with Claire and her safety? Could it be Victor? JMO

    I am really looking forward to the scenery in this trip to Ireland. I watch BB also, and the trip to Australia was breath taking for me and added so much to the s/l. I was almost like having family go and send you videos back. Little far fetched I guess, but these characters are with you each day and they seem almost like family. I guess that is the reason we feel the way that we do when something happens to one of them--family always sticks up for one another.

    Good morning, Suz, Dakota, Gapeach, Tune, Rebeccab, Luvnshawn, and anyone else that is out there. Hope everyone is having a great day. I know that I am just from the updates. Thanks, Chrissi, these are the best updates (for me) in a while. I CANNOT wait to actually see the show today.

    Love you all!!!!!!!!!
