Big brother has the wrong guy. (NBC)

Deconstructing “DOOL” from December 10-14:

Salem saw a lot of tears this week as Nicole came to terms with the realization that Danicole was over and Tannifer was to come, and as everyone realized Daniel’s treatment worked. Matt and I almost started two drinking games. One for whenever someone mentioned “Smith Island” and another for how many times everyone looked at Daniel’s shaky or steady hands and said the word “tremors.”

Complex web of lies.
At least we finally saw a reason why hiding the paternity of Gabi’s baby could be interesting, now that Great-Grandma Caroline and Grandma Sami are planning the wedding and we learned Sonny doesn’t want children until he’s ancient – at least 40 years old. Bets on the truth coming out at the wedding? With how bitter and angry Chad has been lately I figure he’ll be hell bent on finding out what Gabi’s hiding and he’ll either blackmail her or be the one to spill the beans.

This pregnancy must be scrambling Gabi’s brains as she somehow forgot what an expert liar she is and whined to Nick about all their lies piling up! And Nick’s getting the blame for everything! How is Rafe going to treat Will once he learns the truth?

Always wondered…
Why does EJ always try to win Samanther over by being such a goody-two-Rafe when she’s no better than ‘Eeej’? It was understandable when he did this in order to win over saccharine Taylor but he and Sami are two peas in a pod. He shouldn’t have to try that hard with her. If they’re endgame, I don’t want to see EJ “castrated.” Their scheming ways should be celebrated the way Stefano and Kate’s were.

Daniel and his bitches.
Daniel’s harem is always tracking him down. He couldn’t go to the Horton Cabin on Smith Island without his girls showing up to “give him space.” Does he really want to be with Jennifer knowing that he’ll have no ‘man cave’ if they ever marry? I guess he’s not thinking with his brain. Now that he has performed surgery on Jenn twice, he’s into her more than ever. She has Nic Nic beat in that department I guess. Giggedy.

Friday’s show was pretty good. Daniel had a touching moment with yet another of his former lovers, Kate, and we got a reminder of their history before she gave him a photo of Parker, making us all wonder if when Chloe returns we’ll learn Parker really is his after all.

Abby tells Maggie her mum’s at the family cabin. “On Smith Island?” Maggie cries. No, on Christmas Island. I snicker each time I hear that. “Days” always did know how to make me giggle.
