Deconstructing “DOOL” from August 26 – 30:

Hello “Days of Our Lives” fans, Dustin Cushman filling in for Christine who is on holiday this week. This pre-Labor Day week was mainly filled with Dannifer’s up and downs, as well as Sami behind bars. It wasn’t the most eventful of weeks, but let’s get to dishing!

Dannifer take twenty-one.
The week started off great, with Jennifer finally deciding to stop being the doormat that J.J. wiped his feet on before coming into the house. All it took was for him to call her a slut, go figure? It’s just too bad she stopped Daniel from knocking him out, because that’s what most of us are waiting for. Jenn finally put her foot down and told J.J. that she was going to be with Daniel and he would have to find a way to deal with that. Has a miracle occurred? Of course it was just too good to be true! Just as Jenn finally stood up to her kid, Daniel came to his own revelation that Jenn does need to put her son first, so he dumped her. If Jenn and Dan were going to break up yet again, why couldn’t we have at least gotten to see Daniel clock the brat?

Sami makes and breaks a deal.
While working out in her cell to keep in shape, Sami thought over the deal that Melinda Trask offered her. Was Sami doing push-ups in a wife beater ridiculous or what? Is she keeping in shape to fend off attacks from the cops out to get her? Sami eventually took the deal, which meant turning on E.J. if she can’t find a way to give Trask the goods on Stefano. However she came clean with E.J. about the deal, and he was furious with her. For a brief moment the end of Ejami seemed to flash on screen and before our eyes. Sami ended up turning the deal down to save her relationship with E.J. There are still major hurdles for them to overcome, and “DOOL” will probably tease us with the end of Ejami again and again.

EJ’s brilliant plan.
While Sami is working to keep her “Biggest Loser” body, E.J. is hard at work trying to figure out a way to once again prove Bernardi was a dirty cop. E.J. decided to plant money to be found, this time in Bernardi’s son’s account. What a fantastic plan, because we know a similar plan worked so well the first time! E.J. seemed to scrap the idea, but the deed seems to be done. This will likely bite Sami in the butt. At this point it might just be easier to try and find out whom Stefano paid to get rid of the razor from the room. There were only so many people in that room, it isn’t like there is a hospital full of suspects. Seriously, “DOOL” needs to clue us in on where that razor is before we all lose our minds.
