    Meryl Streep You Are Not.

    Tuesday, May 18 2010
    Sami worries about bonding with Sydney, Anna is poisoned, and Baker and Hope attack their next victim.


    At the manse, EJ attempts to work but worries about where Anna is. Sami hears Syd cry, so goes to get her. She returns with Syd, who won’t go down. EJ takes her to bed and returns shortly thereafter. Sami remarks that there’s a connection between him and Sydney and she’s jealous of this. EJ reminds her she has the rest of her life to build a relationship with Sydney. Sami bemoans her motherly skills with Will and says it’s hard to bond. EJ thinks she should be patient but Sami’s finding it rough. She thinks Sydney wishes she were Nicole. EJ and Sami tell each other what wonderful parents each other is.



    On the island, Anna’s about to spill who was behind the Sydnapping when she has a coughing fit. Rafe thinks she’s stalling. “Meryl Streep you are not,” he says with a grin. Anna passes out into her food and Rafe calls 911. When they arrive and examine Anna, they ask if she took drugs. Rafe shakes his head but looks at the chocolate cake and realizes she was poisoned. Unconscious Anna is wheeled out.

    Later, Rafe and Anna are at the hospital. The doctor agrees to examine the food Anna ate and says he has no prognosis at the moment. The doctor returns later on and tells Rafe that Anna was poisoned and she’s lucky to be alive.



    Outside the mansion, Stefano takes a call from one of his henchman. “How long ago was it delivered?" he asks. Moments later, he learns that dinner didn’t sit well with Anna. It may just be her last one, he says with a chuckle. Stefano says not to worry. He’ll make sure Hernandez doesn’t find him. Later, he has gone into the great room and apologizes to Tony, saying it’s a move he had to make.



    At Java Café, Arianna blasts Brady, thinking he’s addicted to Nicole. Brady’s insulted. Ari runs out on him as Kinsey walks in, asking with a sneer, what her problem was! Later, Brady leaves a message for Ari to call him back. She doesn’t answer, thinking he’ll never get Nicole out of his system. Nicole runs into Java and asks Roman if he has any leads on the mugger. He doesn’t give her a comment and talks about justice not being served with her getting out of prison. From nearby, Brady listens as Nicole lets Roman know she regrets the Sydnapping. He doesn’t believe her and warns her to stay away from his granddaughter. Nicole turns to Brady to ask him never to turn his back on her. He jumps up and rushes out and Kinsey tells Nicole not to worry. Brad’s in a bad mood after his diva girlfriend had a temper tantrum and ran out on him.



    At the poker den, Hope listens in while Baker refuses to tell Nicole who his partner is. Nicole decides to drop it and Baker asks about their plan. Nicole says after she makes sure Ari has no alibi, she’ll be in touch. She leaves and Hope comes in and accuses Baker of conspiring with his old partner. She feels betrayed. Baker maintains he’s doing it to protect them but says he was humoring Nicole. He won’t really go through with this. Hope thinks Nicole’s a fool, thinking Brady’s an untrustworthy bastard who will only hurt her. Hope will never let another man ruin her life.



    Maggie ends a call with Julie, saying she’ll see Alice tomorrow. She tells Mia that since Mickey died, Alice hasn’t been well. Mia suggests they bake cookies to bring to her. Maggie thinks that’s sweet and reports that the school called. She’s been cutting classes. Maggie knows Mia has suffered through more than people her age should have to, but it’s no excuse for being irresponsible. Mia tells Maggie of her plan to drop out of school and become a dancer in New York. She wants to get away from bad memories and start anew. Maggie thinks she’s running away. Mia admits it’s hard to see Grace all over town. Maggie holds Mia’s hand as she cries about leaving the pain and misery behind. Maggie says every corner of this house reminds her of her life with Mickey. She hears him call her name and half expects him to be sitting in the kitchen. If she moved away, this wouldn’t change, because he’s in her heart and you can’t run from what’s in your heart. With some prodding, Mia agrees to stay in Salem.


    Nicole stands outside the pub and notices Ari’s light on. She calls her and asks to discuss her expose. Ari is off the clock and tells her not to call back. She’s shutting off her phone. They hang up and Nicole thinks everything is working out perfectly. Ari has trouble sleeping.

    Nicole arrives back at Java Café and calls Ari back. She leaves a message for her to return her call. She has a brilliant idea and can’t wait to share it with her. She calls Baker and tells him to plant the evidence tonight. Baker leaves when Hope arrives.

    Nicole goes to Brady at the Kiriakis mansion and tells him Ari seems really on edge. He says they had an argument and calls Ari. Meanwhile, Ari realizes she can’t sleep until she resolves things with Brady.


    Roman locks up at the Brady pub and walks into the night, where Hope hits him over the head.



    Next on Days Of Our Lives:

    "Why is this happening? Why are you doing this?" Ari asks Brady.

    "I have my reasons," Hope assures Dick.

    "I need an ambulance at the Brady pub. Commander Roman Brady has been attacked," Carly tells the 911 operator.

    Wow two Brady men down, and one to go. I don't think Roman is like his no good brother though. You go Hope. Knock em down.

    I really hope that this blows up in Nicole's face. Take her behind back to prison.

    Okay i'm having a little problem remembering when Sydney called Nicole mama when Ej and Nicole where together. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Sami spend a lot of time with Sydney then?

    Brady needs to make up his mine. Getting on my last nerve.

    What on earth is wrong with HOPE??????

    Posted by Days_pretender at Tuesday, May 18 2010 05:31 AM

    I think you are right, I think there are several persons on the show that will be making some decisions to direct their lives for the next, oh lets say for the next week any way. I do not think even if they make up their minds to do "what ever" that the next writer may change their minds and figure the actors should have done what ever different than the writer before, and then they are off to the races.

    Brady has to make up his mind on which way he will go, and then do it. This going to Ari, and then Nichole would drive me absolutely crazy.

    Anna has to live now so she can point the finger at EJ, but with the spoilers telling that Rafe goes to jail down there, I will not be surprised if she dies, and then Rafe will be blamed for the deed, and thrown into the dark dungeon of prison. I knew when Stephano went in and apologizes to Toni, I knew that they were going to play God again and do something with Anna.

    Rafe has to get out of this mess now, and get home before the big mistake is made by Sammi, and give in to EJ. Once she does that, there will not be any trust as there should be, but just yesterday, she said that if Rafe came in the Pub at that moment, and wanted her to go back to co- habitating, she would do it in a minute, I knew that the writers would never allow this to happen, it makes too much sense. They never allow anything to go down that easily.

    I think that once the decisions are made and the persons making the decisions make the changes, I do not think we, as the fans that spend so much time watching the show, will even recognize it as the same show.

    Roman Brady down for the count. I love it.

    Its almost time for Bope's anniversary. Gag..... I hope Hope lays his butt on. And stand over him and say happy anniversary.

    Brady see that's why Hope bash your butt over the head. Pick one woman.

    To bad Hope isn't hitting females. I think there is something wrong with most of the women on the show.

    Ha ha ha. Days is getting a new writer. Happy becauses everything besides NT Hope is crap to me.

    Rafe is to damn fine to be given all theses boring storylines. Give the man something good.

    Sami still acting like a dumb blonde.

    Carly still being a mistress. Doesn't even care that a little girl is suffering. But why should she, Ciare not her daughter. Guess what Carly, Bo will hurt you to, its a matter off time.

    Hobo Brady. Says he loves Carly. Ha ha ha. Well that fall must really got to you causes she only looks like a sex slave. But wait Carly can hurt Bo too. Maybe she'll decided that she wants her baby daddy, grown baby, and her to be a family. In your face Bo.

    Kill em Hope.

    This is just my opinion.

    so dang sick and tired of Nicole already. Please give her a life and let her stay out of Ari and Brady's!!!! I wish Baker would rat her out. So predictable, I knew Stefano would have Anna harmed. Sami is going to flip when she finds out the truth bout EJ. I know they are laying ground work for Alice to pass away since the actress passed, how sad, will be some touching scenes.

    I also hope that this blows up in Nicole's face b'cos it will hurt me so much if she gets away with her scheming against Arianna. Brady should be very careful about Nicole b'cos when it comes to her, she is a saint.

    I don't think Hope is alright, she has to see a Doctor b'cos she is really going insane. Someone has to stop her from taking that pills.

    I knew that Stephano will never allow Anna to expose EJ. He'll rather kill her and frame Rafe for it.

    Posted by Hopeandpatrick at Tuesday, May 18 2010 10:35 AM

    This is my first time posting here. So I have to say, bring Patrick back. Let him be Hope's knight in shining armor. Lol

    Go patrick and Hope forever.

    And Rafe is sexy.

    Ej is charming.

    Bo can go f himself.

    Posted by iloveumm at Tuesday, May 18 2010 11:13 AM

    I'm really annoyed at Nicole trying to frame Ari. Stop it with Nicole already darn.

    Hope you are making laugh, you just love the head bashing let's see if these men get the senses knocked into them.

    I hope Anna does not die at all. I can't stand the evil Dimeras.. how they do evil and don't pay for it make me sick.

    Sammi try and think about how come EJ and Sydney were apart for so long yet their is a strong bond. BECAUSE THE CHILD WAS SEEING HIM EVERY DAY. gosh

    Posted by tylia at Tuesday, May 18 2010 11:40 AM

    (reply-to Cettame on the show yesterday 5-17..Thanks I am glad you understand what I was saying in my post.We just see that EJ is not as evil as some think)I don't hate Rafe but he is not my favorite either.I know he is doing his FBI job but he is also personally invested in the Sydney kidnapping case,therefore he is going at it with a vengence and I think he really knows it was EJ but he dosen't have proof.To me he is too much in EJs child business.Yes,EJ did take his daughter away for a couple of months AND? Rafe and Sami were going to keep her away from EJ forever if they could have.Rafe was going to adopt someone elses child without telling them about their own child.That really isn't too noble.Rafe no goodietwo shoe nor is EJ.Atleast EJ took his own child.And it would be so stupid if he got in any trouble for it.He was only wrong for fooling with the police matters.Sami/Rafe were wrong from the start with their lying.EJ just reacted.That is his child.Also,yes EJ has a concious I hope he tells Sami the truth himself instead of Rafe..Sami should understand with all the dirt she did to him first..in all this mess.

    Looks,like Nicole still messing up with Brady.

    Roman,was the next victim of Hopes'I quess Bo will be the ultimate target.He is the one she's really angry with.

    Poor Anna,Stefano must have had her followed.Anna is going through alot for helping EJ,it wasn't worth it for her she is going through too much.EJ should feel guilty...for getting her involved but then she wanted to.

    Posted by Days_pretender at Tuesday, May 18 2010 01:17 PM

    I would like to post this to Tylia: The character EJ is very evil, as well as his father. Nobody can be any more so than Stephano DeMera, and therefore EJ has learned from his father, and it is disgusting. Nobody should be allowed even in a Soap, to kidnap a baby from its mother, and keep that baby for months on end, and watch the pain it causes the baby's mother, and sit with the baby in his arms, and smile about it as he relives it. All the while he was making plans to take Johnny and the three of them were leaving the show and then only to make Sammi suffer even more. When he took the clothing belonging to Sydney, and had some blook of hers on the clothes, and put them at the pier, only to add more pain to all that Sammi was enduring all ready, and sit there and actually laughed about it, is sick. He is de ranged. This is the curelty that was mentioned. Yes he is and yet has a long way to go to get to his father. Stephano just had the man put the poison onto the brownies that Anna ate, and now is in the coma, and this is SICK......Accept it dear, it is absolutely curel.... evil.....
