    You're Not My Friend.

    Monday, March 15 2010
    Max returns home to visit Melanie, Nicole realizes Anna is the kidnapper, and EJ starts to panic.

    On the pier, Carly’s surprised that Hope agreed to try to get Melanie to listen to reason. Carly is floored that Hope agreed to do this on her behalf. She has a good heart and is a woman of integrity and Carly knows that’s why Bo loves her so much. Bo is taken aback. Carly says she’s not fishing and in response, he takes her in a passionate kiss, and then tells her she’s important to him. She’s the one he needs. He has a history with Hope but things change. People outgrow each other.

    Hope goes to Melanie’s hospital bedside to discuss the shooting – as a friend. Melanie says, "You’re not my friend." Hope rephrases. She’s not there as an officer of the law and encourages Melanie not to discount Carly and send her to jail. Melanie can’t believe Hope’s defending the woman having sex with her husband. Hope says Carly would never intentionally hurt her but Melanie reminds Hope that Carly gave her away. Hope thinks Melanie’s doing this out of spite and is sorry for what she has been through in the past. Melanie thinks Carly’s got to pay for giving her to sadistic Trent.

    Max arrives home to the pub to Caroline, shocked to hear Carly Manning’s Melanie’s mother and shooter. He wishes he could have been here sooner. He’s there for a few hours and then off to a medical conference in San Diego. Caroline urges him to see Melanie, now.

    Nicole scours the floor of the jail with a toothbrush when the guard drops a pail in front of her. Nicole begs for a sponge but Mrs. McTavish feels this is appropriate punishment for beating on Tiffany and takes a photo of Nicole for kicks. When Mrs. McTavish calls Nicole sweet pea, it strikes something in her memory about the kidnapper. She sees Anna’s face and wonders why she thought of Anna. She flashes back to Anna always going on her little trips and calling Sydney sweet pea and realizes Anna was definitely the one who kidnapped Sydney!

    EJ plays with Sydney at home while Sami paces. EJ tries to get her to discuss what’s wrong. Sami wonders how she’s going to get Rafe to focus on them again. If Rafe can find out who kidnapped Sydney, it’ll go a long way toward helping their relationship. EJ’s face falls when she admits he’s got a good lead and he tries to undermine Rafe’s ability as an FBI officer.

    Anna gets on the plane to San Jose, Costa Rica. Missing Sydney, she searches her bag for her photo and panics when she doesn’t find it. She might have left it at the cottage. If it’s found and she goes down, she’s taking EJ with her. There’s a delay with the flight and Anna becomes increasingly anxious.

    Rafe and Agent Clarke break down the door at the chalet, which is covered in cobwebs as though it hasn’t been used. Rafe calls Sami and asks her and EJ to join them.

    Sydney, EJ and Sami arrive at the chalet and Rafe tells them this is the only structure in the vicinity of a cell tower that the phone calls to EJ came from. EJ doesn’t think it’s proof that the kidnapper was here and thinks Rafe’s trying to torment them! Rafe denies that and asks if they recognize anything. Neither recognizes anything and EJ calls it a waste of time. Mr. Toppits, the caretaker, arrives and Rafe questions him. The man looks at EJ and then tells Rafe that nothing out of the ordinary has happened recently. He leaves and EJ calls this a dead end and tries to convince them that whoever did this is long gone. They should be happy to have Sydney back. Rafe tells them they’ll catch the kidnapper. It’s only a matter of time. EJ’s mouth is set in a grim line when they leave.

    Back at the pier, Bo and Carly discuss Melanie when Hope pops up, saying that she spoke with Melanie. It’s personal. Melanie’s determined to punish Carly. Hopefully, says Hope, one day Melanie will realize the truth. Bo says he’s off to the station to talk to Gus to see if he can cut a deal and give them Vivian. He leaves and Hope tries to reassure Carly that Melanie could change her mind. Carly thinks that’s kind of her but she thinks it’s best if she goes to jail. She’s going to plead guilty. Hope reminds her it’ll be a long time before she gets out of prison. Carly says if she’s out of the picture, she’s certain Hope and Bo can find their way back to each other. Hope feels she’s being patronized and tells Carly to go straight to hell.

    Melanie drops her magazine on the floor of her hospital room and when she’s retrieving it with her back turned from the door, somebody enters the room. She thinks it’s Hope and starts yelling but when she turns around, she sees it’s Max and jumps into his arms, hurting her chest in the process. Max laughs. She’s as bratty as ever. He gets her back into bed and she wants to know all about how he and Chelsea are. Max says they’re fine and wants to discuss Carly and Daniel being her parents. Melanie explains the news and they hug and agree they still feel like siblings and love each other. They banter and Max tells her she’s loyal, sweet, and on the right track to a wonderful life. They discuss Carly and Max thinks Melanie should cut Carly some slack. Melanie pouts and says if he’s going to defend Carly, he can leave!

    Sami, Syd and Rafe arrive home. Rafe’s got to head back to work but Sami gets him to stay and visit with Sydney. They’re a family, she says, while they grin at one another. Rafe promises there will be justice for them all.

    EJ arrives home to a call from Anna, telling him her flight has been delayed. He yells that she needs to get out of the country, now! She tells him there are mechanical issues and EJ panics. She wonders if something has happened. EJ tells her Rafe Hernandez found the cottage. Anna starts to hyperventilate. What happens if Rafe finds something? EJ says if she’s got to ask, she’s dense. If Rafe finds a clue in the cottage, they’re both history. Anna learns the flight’s about to take off and they hang up.

    Next on Days Of Our Lives:

    Carly tells Hope, "This is about what must be and will be."

    Nicole is on the phone with Anna, "It's Nicole. Long time no talk."

    Nathan says, "You need to tell me exactly what was in this letter, Stephanie."

    Melanie and Max are so cute, Hope is such a wonderful person with a good heart i mean she is even helping the woman who is sleeping with her husband she is warming forgiving person Bo is stupid he better wake up. Sami another dumb blonde oh i forgot she dropped out of school, EJ needs to be with someone who is tough,strong and headstrong and bright like Arianna, I love Nicole so glad she is back the Show hasn't been the same without her, i love her friendship with Chloe. EJ is a fake Dimera, which Dimera would leave evidence, he is very stupid.People need to stop pressuring Melanie let her make her own decision if they keep pressuring her she will press charges against Carly they should give her time and stop telling her what to do let her be that's the only good thing they can do. Have a good Monday everyday God i hate Mondays got's to go to Uni. Godbless everyone.

    Re: Tomorrow's previews (so it's spoilerish)


    Nicole calls Anna? How the heck does everyone know everyone else's phone number? This has been an irritant to me for quite some time, and it's not exclusive to this soap. does a jail inmate have access to learning a virtual stranger's phone number?

    If Bo wants trash give it to him Hope. Hope you are a beautiful woman and if Bo doesn't see that another man will. You don't need someone who was rolling around in fleas anyway. Carly is such a b*Tch. This woman is trying to save your relationship with your daughter and your trying to lecture her. Grow the hell up and stop sleeping with ppl husbands.

    GLad Max is back. Even if it for two shows. They should have brought him back to stay. Love Max, he's good with Mel. Nut right now she's acting like a spoiled brat to him. Mel shut up, and talk to your wh*re of a mother.
    Ej the walls are closing in, Nicole id going yo uses that toothbrush to wash you end Anna mouth. I wonder will she blackmail Ej into getting her out of prison. That will definitely end Ejami reunion. Long live safe.

    I, personally, love Carly and Bo together. I can't figure out why everyone hates her so much and would prefer Bo with Hope. I get that Bo and Hope have been together for ever and blah blah blah, but Hope is so freaking self- righteous. When their daughter was kidnapped Bo did everything in his power to get her back. Hope didn't agree with it so she left, and she used that as leverage against Bo. SHE couldn't be with him because SHE couldn't trust him. SHE didn't know what she wanted and there was Bo right there following her around like a little lap dog. A man can only take so much. This whole siuation is all Hope's fault. If she would've just tried to work things out with him before Carly caught his attention things probably would have been different. But no, Hope decided to finally see the light after the fact. I just don't get it. Happy Monday everyone!

    I've been watching DOOL since 1986 and LOVED Bo/Hope as a couple. With that being said, I also loved Bo/Carly back in the day, too because they just had that chemistry that was good. Now, Hope's my girl and all but she DID try to get "brand new" on my boy, Bo, I'm sorry. As Victoria1979 said, she wanted to "punish" Bo for what happened with their daughter and he STILL held on, following her around, trying to make things right while Hope continued to play my boy to the left. Now all of a sudden, Carly pops back up and then Hope wants to "remember" just how much she DOES love Bo and wants him back. Girlfriend, you can't have it both ways...while you were playing Bo like he was a step-child, Carly was showing him that he's NOT and he likes that. He likes to play "hero" to his "damsel in distress"; he tried to play that with you but you kicked him down. Don't be mad that the "clean up woman" came in and SWEPT your is what it is...

    Okay so Nicole is in prison/jail, right? I thought they only had payphones in the hell is she able to make a call without doing so COLLECT??? Did she get a quarter from somebody? Did she find one on the floor as she cleaned it with the toothbrush? Please don't tell me that she "miraculously" came upon an IPhone while behind bars...

    EJ, I hope you get BUSTED! You need to pay for the things you've done and Rafe, KEEP ON DIGGING!!!

    Have a GREAT day, everybody!

    Again today Ej gets shot down by Sami; she would rather go home with Rafe and Sydney! How many times does Ej have to get hit with the reality stick before he realizes Sami is NOT interested in him, talk about dense! Ej has never been, is now or will ever be Samantha’s hero that title is reserved for Agent Hottie!

    MacHottie is sure looking HOTTTT when he is working, trying to balance Sami, the kids, and work, at least he is helping Sami, instead of trying to destroy her life!

    Mel is getting on my nerves, she has every right to dislike Carly but to send her to Jail is something else!

    I don’t like Hope or Carly they are the same person with different names, so one spoiled brat on the show is enough!

    I have never liked Nicole, but when her and Sami were becoming friends I was hoping that they could let Nicole come back more mellow, I don’t want Sami and her to be BFF but be kind to one another!

    Anna isn’t going down for this kidnapping alone; she will take Ej with her! She has been around the Dimera’s long enough to have a few tricks up her sleeve!

    Victoria, I personally just don't like Carly. The same way Carly fans don't like Hope. We all like who we like. Just like I don't understand why Carly fans like her sleeping with a married man. And they aspect us yo be okay with her. Then she tries to do the same with Daniel. Everyone blames Hope for her marriage being ruin, but she didn't make Bo sleep with Carly, Bo is not the man he was. And Catly fans say she a nice respectable women, but a respectable woman wouldn't be sleeping with a married man and expecting everyone to look over that.

    Love my safe.

    Bo will be running back to Hope in no time, and I hope she kicks his sorry butt to the curve. And Hope should have kick Catly a**. Carly is true witch. hope should have slapped her eyes open. As I recall to all Carly fans. You talk about how Hope left Bo. Didn't Carly leave him too, to live the life of the rich and Famous. What makes Carly better than Hope.

    Hi lilpink, all aboard the Hope's train. Next stop finding a real man.

    Hey to BW if you get a chance to post today.

    Hi all other posters.

    Posted by LilPink at Monday, March 15 2010 09:12 AM

    I have to disagree with most posters. Bo never treated Hope like she is weak. Maybe that why he wants Carly, because a she is weak and she needs yo be saved all the time. When Ciare went missing He kept Hope out, never mind the fact that Ciare was hope daughter to. when Zack died, Bo was all about protecting Chelesa and not being thet3 for Hope when she was devastated. Now I think Hope had every right to move out him, she didn't tell him it was over, and it doesn't give Carly or Bo the right to trend on her home. And Carly left Bo too, so pleases stop using Hope leaving an excusable causes it don't cut it.

    And yes Diamond I'm aboard that train. And I'm hoping that Bo's vision of Hope and Roman will come true. So wanting the together. Bo has been a disgrace to Hope and has disrespected her every chance he got. So to hell with Carbo and hello to Rope or Hopetin. Bo wants trash let him keep it.

    Hope has loveed Bo since too long to remember but he love Carly and Billy but still Hope was his fancy face, i believe they will be back together but at the moment i would like to knock Bo out for telling Carly he loves and needs her. BO get a life. Fancy face all the way.

    Sami you better not be getting close to EJ and mess up things with Rafe. EJ You are going down soon and very soon. Please don't let Nicole keep their secret at least let her blackmail them into getting her out and then getting back at them by spilling the beans that would be a good one.

    Posted by InamedmycatafterVivian at Monday, March 15 2010 11:23 AM

    For every action there is a reaction. Hope left and Bo reacted. It happens. I don't believe Carly and Bo were married when she left, but I really can't remember. Even if they were, it's not comparable. Carly and Bo do not share children and weren't married for 25 years.

    Now I don't like Bo flaunting his relationship with Carly in front of Hope. Someone file the papers please! I am finally enjoy watching Hope again. I know I defend Carly a lot because I think she has brought a lot to the show, but I still hope Bo and Hope fix things.
