"Breathless" AKA Taylor.
Tamara Braun's taking over the role of Taylor next week yet I'm still not sure we need the character or that I understand her. I hope that when Nic Nic finds her slimy husband and head-tilting husband-stealing sister kissing that she hits them both over the head with her pocketbook, weighed down with a ton of bricks. You know what would be genius is if Nicole sued EJ for divorce and got custody of Sami and EJ's kids – that's a storyline I could get into. Because you know "DOOL" is all about the kids.
Most curious line of the week: "Watch the road! This is a limo, not a covered wagon!" If that didn't give my sick addled mind pause, I found it even curiouser is that Taylor was smiling after being knocked unconscious. And just when I thought it couldn't get any more bizarre, it turned into a scene from the movie "Crash." EJ must have some kick-ass pheromones because "Breathless" was 'all over that'.
Goodbye my Philly.
My Twitter pal "FuzzyTomato" says, "Writing for Phil’s exit is weak. Philip has always stood by Chloe!"
It was uninspiring and they didn't stay true to the character. No surprise. If they'd played this story out longer, allowing time for us to watch Philly bond with Parker and Chloe fall in love with her little boy, it could have been powerful. After watching this episode from my sick bed, I wondered if Higley was deliberately trying to ruin the show so that it’ll go off the air and she’ll get to write some talk show instead. Hmm Déjà vu.
The setback of Chloe boozing it up in the afternoon was the only thing that made sense.
Best line of the week: "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the other goose, right?"
Bghwme is a Soaps.com poster who always has something interesting to say about the show. She didn't disappoint this week when she asked, "Why are Nicole and Melanie not friends?" Excellent point.
"They have similar backgrounds where their prospective "fathers" used them in sex games and porno movies to get money. Now, both of them have had a miscarriage. Seems like they could understand each other on a level that no one else could. The difference is that Melanie (probably thanks to Maggie's influence) is always trying to do the right thing and Nicole seems to always choose the wrong thing. Still, it seems to me that they should be friends on some level, or at least have a heart to heart talk."
Will somebody please hire bghwme, because she knows the show and characters better than most.
...and that's Victor!
Just after I enjoyed a darling scene between Mag Mags and crusty ole Vic defining their relationship, thinking how thankful TPTB took their time with this and then was let down when they were screwed with them moments after. Since Vic's always know Mags has a soft spot for Chloe, why suddenly now is he trying to control her? Because that's who he is!
Have a great long weekend and don't eat too much chocolate.

These are the “Days” of my week from April 18-22:
Monday’s episode was superb. There were some great family scenes between Mel and Daniel, and Stefano and Lexi. Chloe’s martini guzzling and drunk dialing was extremely entertaining… Even Dario going off on RoboRafe in Spanish was hysterical. Every scene was jam-packed with soapy goodness and best of all, they all wore red or a coordinating colour. No more blue and purple. The rest of the week could have been better but in the words of the Stones, “You can’t always get what you want.”
I commented to Matt of (Matt’s DOOL Musings.), “Why is Will always smirking, even in sad scenes?” Matt replied, “It’s because he’s thinking about sex.” Note to Will: It’s highly distracting.
Rafe turned into McGyver this week by letting out all the ink from a ballpoint pen he nicked. The question is, does he have any bubble-gum? Better question, where did he get the scrubs? I’ll miss the eccentric doctor when he escapes but I’m actually looking forward to finding out what he does once he’s out.
Could Stefano have ordered Troy to do the hit on Arianna? Is that why he asked RoboRafe to get rid of her? And how did he know Robo would add murder to his list of transgressions? As well, did you find it unusual that after Mel doused Dario with pepper spray, she ran all the way to the pub to get him a milk-covered rag to bring back to him instead of simply bringing him with her?
Robo’s got a big set, taking that chippie back to the locker room and telling her his sister’s the blonde in the photos with the kids! What a cruddy thing to do. It was brilliant.
I’m not surprised that Bo or Roman didn’t think of using the GPS in Ciara’s cell phone to find her but shouldn’t Hope have thought of that? I guess she was too busy worrying. I’m missing the importance of this storyline and what the outcome is supposed to change, since Bope is already back together and I’m sure the kids will be fine. I thought possibly Lexi and Hope would be at odds but that notion was crushed. The only engrossing part of the story has been Carly’s deliciously outlandish behaviour, Victor commenting on the last time he saw Ciara and Hope’s avocado sweater with the plumb cami underneath.
