    The Most Interesting Sister!

    Friday, June 19 2009
    Max says goodbye to Melanie, and Salemites say goodbye to Grace.


    EJ and Nicole arrive at the church. In the vestibule, EJ mumbles he doesn’t even remember what Grace looks like as he holds the photo of Grace that he finds on the casket.

    By the casket, Father Matt tells Rafe that God’s plans can be bewildering, but it only makes things worse. Rafe blames God for taking Grace from him.
    Arianna and Brady discuss Sami and Rafe and the funeral today. Brady worries about Sami, but Arianna knows she has family support. She’s more concerned about Rafe and all the lies he has told for Sami.

    Back in the vestibule, EJ makes a move toward Sami, when she arrives, but Roman and Bo stop him. Mia and Hope stand by as EJ tells Sami that he wouldn’t dream of disrespecting his daughter’s service. It wasn’t him who made her life a lie. Will comes in after Mia and makes a snide remark about EJ being Grace’s father. Bo asks him to support his mother today. Everyone goes inside the church but EJ and Nicole, who urges EJ to take this time to grieve, before taking revenge. EJ looks inside and sees Mia and asks Nicole who she is. Nicole stumbles over her words as she explains she thinks Mia babysat for Grace. EJ is angered that a stranger knew his kid more than he.

    Inside the church, Will tells Mia that he does understand Sami’s reasoning for keeping Grace from EJ. He knows she would do what she could to stop her children from growing up in that house.

    Nicole goes inside while EJ makes a call, giving orders to somebody to drop the papers off, soon. Stephanie interrupts EJ and tells him what she thinks of him, which isn’t much. She feels for Sami, who lost a child but doesn’t think EJ deserves children. EJ seethes and tells her she’s lucky to be alive, so Stephanie smacks him across the face and points at him, telling him not to dare threaten her again. Philip walks in just after the slap and EJ tells her to exercise a little control, saying he’s sure Philip will side with him on this one. EJ leaves and Stephanie apologizes to Philip. She’s got nothing to apologize for, he says, knowing full well that EJ should be in jail. They enter the church.

    Back inside the church, Mia is unhappy for Sami. Nicole sits behind her and stops Mia from apologizing for being there. "You should be here for Grace." Caroline arrives while Stephanie goes to Sami to give her condolences. Sami knows she didn’t have to be there, considering her recent ordeal with Owen. Caroline goes to Sami and hopes Will has decided to sit with her. He hasn’t. Sami blurts out that she’s sick of the lies. Brady arrives with Arianna. When Arianna takes a seat, Brady tells Nicole she should know how Sami feels. She should have had a service for her lost child. Roman tells EJ if he hurts one more member of his family, he’ll turn in his badge and deal with EJ the way EJ deals with others. "No mercy." EJ takes out the custody papers from his pocket and thinks back to Stephanie’s rant.

    Nearby, Arianna takes Rafe’s arm and says she knows this brings back a lot of memories. She admits she was wrong to tell him he was in the wrong for helping Sami.

    Near the casket, Brady hugs Sami. Brady explains he understands completely, why she lied about Grace. He loves that about her, he admits. Meanwhile, Nicole tells Grace she was the first one to hold her and will never forget her.

    Bo and Hope hug Sami and offer to talk to her anytime. Sami was worried they’d be angry at her but they could never stay angry at her, they confess. Father Matt starts the somber ceremony. Caroline does a reading and then Will tells a cute story about Grace, but has a difficult time finishing it, so Father Matt tells him he has done a good job, and Will takes a seat. When Father Matt asks if anyone else has any memories to share, EJ gets up. "I don’t have any memories to share but I do want to say something," he starts, causing Nicole, and the others to cringe. He goes up to the podium and says his only reason for getting up daily, is to ensure his children are safe. He discusses children and how one loves them before they see, hear or meet them. He says to Sami and Rafe, "I trust you’ll take some comfort in your memories of my daughter," reminding them they’ll always share memories of Grace, while he has nothing. He takes one last silent look around and takes a seat. Mia decides that though she has nothing to say, she’d like to sing. She starts singing "Amazing Grace," and Caroline joins her in song, while Sami chokes back tears. Most of the mourners get up to sing while Sami cries on Rafe’s shoulder. Father Matt gives a blessing and the Eucharist is given out. Later, roses are placed in a basket on top of the casket by everyone. Mia has to go back to work and gives Will a hug before she leaves. Sami and Rafe place a rose on the casket and Rafe tells Grace they’ll always love her. EJ and Nicole go to the casket and EJ says she’ll never be forgotten. Ever. Father Matt says another prayer and it’s time for the final farewell. Stephanie hugs Sami once more and then goes to EJ and blasts him for making Sami feel even worse than she already does. She tells Nicole to remember the blood on his hands next time he holds Sydney. EJ tells Philip to control his woman better.

    Arianna goes to Rafe, and they discuss the support Sami has. Rafe thinks it was a mistake to let EJ find out the truth at all. Arianna asks him not to take all of this on himself in order to protect Sami, but she knows this falls on deaf ears.

    Nearby, EJ is angered that Sami named Grace after Rafe. Roman tells Sami she’s strong, just like her mother, and they hug. Hope hugs Sami and then Bo, who tells her to call if she needs anything. The guests file out and all that is left is Sami and Rafe and EJ and Nicole.



    Max finds Melanie at the hospital and they discuss London. Melanie sadly admits to him that she doesn’t think she wants to go with him. Max thinks she could always come visit, but Melanie assumes Chelsea won’t like that. Max is a little happy she’s staying, considering people are starting to take her seriously. He second guesses himself and jokes that nobody’s taking her seriously. They share a laugh and Melanie becomes distracted while she spots Nathan at the nurse’s station. She introduces the two and Max shares that Melanie has decided to stay in Salem. "And I just asked her why, but that remains a mystery," Max teases an embarrassed Melanie. She tells Nathan that Maggie’s will be co-ed from now on. He doesn’t mind. He’ll hardly ever be around, anyway. He leaves and Max reminds her of her mistakes with Philip. Melanie hasn’t forgotten and reminds Max she can’t screw up Nathan’s life. She can, however, screw up his life in London, and she refuses to. He means too much to her! Max gives her an open ended ticket to London, causing Melanie to cry.

    She calls him the best brother in the world and he laughs. "You’re the most interesting sister…" He tells her to let him know how the hunt looks. She looks over his shoulder at Nathan and acts innocent. "The hunt?" Max says, "You’re looking over….I don’t even have to look!" He knows Nathan’s there.



    Philip and Stephanie arrive at the mansion, and after Philip leaves, Stephanie takes another of the therapist’s prescription pills.



    Mia gets back to work at Java, where she is interrupted by a familiar voice - Chad!



    Father Matt tells Nicole he’s glad the nuns from The Convent of the Holy Cross have arrived to see Sami. Their car broke down, he admits, and Nicole goes pale. Meanwhile, EJ hands Sami a court order. "He’s taking Johnny from me," she says. EJ tells her, "Just like you took my daughter from me. An eye for an eye, Sami."



    Next on Days Of Our Lives:

    Will calls Lucas and tells him they need to talk. "This can’t wait!"

    Kate tells Chloe and Daniel that the appetizers she’s serving are tasty. "To die for, tasty," she says.

    Sami tells EJ and Nicole, "I will see you both in hell for this!"

    EJ is an SOB for serving those papers on Sami after Grace's funeral. He has really become his father's son. I hope there is some way Sami can get Johnny back.

    Melanie and Nathan will be good together. That is the first time I have ever seen her speechless around a man. Good Luck to Max. I am going to miss him so much.

    I hope Kate doesn't succeed in poisoning Chloe. I want to see Daniel and Chloe get back together for good because they do love one another. And I would like to see Kate accidentally poison herself. Haha

    *****spoil alert***
    I read yesterday that Stephano is leaving due to contract negoations......
    I really like him, EJ won't be enough to represent the DeMeras.

    I thought that was really crappy that EJ served Sami at a funeral.

    Waiting for the secret Rafe has. They keep going round and round. I don't think the writers have the final chapter yet.

    It is a good thing, I wasn't playing Stephanie! He'd have gotten more than a hard slap! The CAD! And what he did to Sami. I hope he does get his just desserts from her and Rafe!

    I TO AM GLAD STEPHANIE SLAPPED THE MESS OUT OF EJ. I AM GETTING REALLY TIRED OF HIM. HOW DO YOU SERVE SOMEONE AT YOUR CHILDS FUNERAL. YOU HAVE TO BE REALLY HEARTLESS. SICK OF EVERYONE ELSE GETTING AWAY WITH EVERYTHING. I'M SURE IN SOAP LAND EJ WILL GET LITTLE JOHNNY, HOW I DON'T KNOW WHEN HIS FAMILY IS KNOWN FOR ALL THE DIRTY DEEDS. MAYBE THE JUDGE IS WORKING FOR THE DIMERAS
    EVERYONE ELSE IS. GETTING SICK OF WILL ALSO. HE JUST NEEDS SOMEONE TO GET HIM IN CHECK. MAYBE THAT WILL BE ROMAN OR BO. SPEAKING OF BO, MY HEAT WENT OUT TO HIM AND HOPE. GLAD NO CHLOE OR DANIES. REALLY GLAD. LOOKING FOWARD TO KATE AND THE POISIONED FOOD. EVEN IF IT IT DID LOOK GOOD, IT WILL KILL YOU DEAD.

    I understand that EJ is hurt and everything, but it is going way too far to hand papers for custody of Johnny to Sami at Grace's funeral! The nerve of him! He is insensitive and cold-hearted and Sami knows him well. No wonder she kept the truth from him--I would have done the same! And Rafe is being so sweet and just what Sami needs right now-some comfort and just sweet, sweet love! I love their romance and hope the writers keep SAFE together 4 ever. Of course, we all know that's too good to be true, but a girl can dream!! LOL!!
    As for Nicole, I hope she gets the ultimate punishment one day--I hope she is TOTALLY alone and has no one at all to love her! It will serve her right for doing all these nasty, ungodly things to people! Every day she is "mother" to Sydney is just sickening to me--that would be the ultimate nasty thing to do to someone in my opinion--to take their child away and raise it as your own--how heartless could someone be?? All I know is when and if Sami ever finds out, only God will be able to help Nicole...And who knows if he'll be willing???? I say she deserves everything she will get and Samantha is just the one to give it to her!! GO SAFE!! YOU ALWAYS ROCK!!!
    One more thing, too--couldn't they have at least showed a scene where Sami talks to Marlena on the phone, even?? That would've added alot to the scenes, in my opinion!!! Ya know, sometimes, I really wish the fans could write the show--it would probably be just as good if not better than what these so-called writers are coming up with!!! LOL!!! Sorry, writers ,but sometimes you make us all go---WTF?????

I"m counting on Grandpa dearest to tell all.

    Bravo Stephanie for giving EJ a piece of her mind. I only wished that Stephanie would have hit EJ harder than that little tickle.

    I can understand where EJ’s anger is coming from but serving Sami those legal docs at the funeral was cruel.

    Nicole egging Ej on about revenge towards Sami made me ill. I hope Nicole gets her reward when her lies are finally exposed.

    I like melanie and nathan too.

    Posted by BNRICH at Friday, June 19 2009 10:52 AM

    HATE EJ HATE HATE HATE HIM!

    I Totally started crying when they started singing Amazing grace!

    I feel sorry for Sami, and would have donethe samething if i was in here shoes. Atleast she has a good man standing beside her this time. Ej as an ass and lucase was a whimp!!!! Rafe is the best guy for her and i hope they don't mess them up.

    I am starting to llike Melanie. and i think Nathan will be good for her.

    going to miss Chles and Max!

    starting to get annoyed with Daniel and Chloe!

    EJ was wrong to serve Sami with those papers- he's being cruel. I not sure but if they are trying to make us dislike EJ, I think they are doing a good job at it- I'm not a fan of this Dark EJ.
    The funeral was just heartbreaking.

    I hope Melanie and Nathan work out, I think they would be pretty good together!

    Still no call or flowers from Marlena and John? No call from Steph's parents either? What gives? Come on Days..these are the gals that you have shown us through the years that need their mothers love, support and to not see them or hear about them is just sad and such a shame.

    Lastly, I'm so tired of the Daniel, Kate, Lucas and Chloe s/l. Still don't think Danloe are in love, lust yes but it doesn't come off as true love or anything that makes me excited. I think its a shame that these 4 characters have been written so wrong. Its not doing any of them any favors. I'm just ready for it to wrap up.

    Good for Stephanie standing up to EJ- but, watch those pills Steph. Your taking them like candy.
