I just found today's script so lackluster. Dario and Nicole scenes didn't do anything for me. There was no zip to the dialogue and the actors together weren't meshing well. Dario as a hothead is fine, but he should have some charm to him especially when in a scene with a beautiful woman such as Nicole. He's missing the sex appeal that Xander had. Without it, the scenes feel ho hum.

Victor was given some witty lines today, but I'm beyond bored of these repetitive conversations between him and Deimos. :yawnz: Say your sorry, blah, blah, blah. Deimos screwing with Maggie's meds isn't even all that interesting because I'm already on Maggie overload with the annoying Summer storyline. It's just all so dull. Is there anything else planned for Deimos? There needs to be.

I'm majorly mad Belle and Shawn are being written out, so watching Belle today was sad. I thought her and Philip scenes the best of the day even though I think the storyline lame. Also what was that terrible scene with Claire with Philip and Belle. The writing for that rushed scene was terrible! 'You've worked so hard for this?' What?! 'You're trying to buy me' But, okay! Let's do it! :shame: Ugh on all that!

This did not feel like a Friday show at all. It felt like a very weak Wednesday that should have been scrapped. Not worth watching.
I agree it felt like a midweek episode rather than a Friday.There was nothing that provoked a "I am really looked forward to Monday" reaction but I didn't really mind it.I don't mind that Dario is not really coming on strong with Nicole but I did have wistful thoughts of Paul Telfer when Deimos said his only family was in Salem.I hope
Paul returns as Xander even if its only for a month or so.
I am so sick of Nicole,Maggie,and now Summer talking about Daniel.He's been dead three months.Let him go and move the "F" on.The Daniel angle is the major reason I hate this story.

Its weird to me that Dario would tell Nicole that his father was a hired assassin.Also strange that Nicole would ask if he was a good guy.
I just don't see how Edouardo being brainwashed into being an assassin makes him a bad guy but John is still a nice guy after doing the same. :shrug:
I don't recall Dario actually telling Nicole that Eduardo had been brainwashed although I do admit I could have missed that.

Its also strange that Maggie agreed to have a driver when she left the mansion to get air after nearly passing out at the mansion but today she is staggering all over Salem.Why did Summer take Maggie to her place after Maggie nearly passed out then allow Maggie to leave without walking Maggie to a waiting car? Nicole by insisting that she and Dario take Maggie home seems to be more sensible than Victor,Brady,and Summer.

I haven't read any of the threads for this week.I hope to do so this weekend.I just want to ask if someone can let me know if Summer is supposed to be two to five years older than Daniel based on Summer being the product of a pre-Mickey teen Maggie and Daniel being the product of eggs stolen later.
I have to admit I find it strange they chose to write Maggie as being in a relationship sufficient to allow her to get carried away and have sex with a farm hand without knowing his last name.I don't see how she could not know the last name of someone working on the farm.

Spoilers for Week of April 4th
What is Deimos' approximate age? He was in prison for thirty years because he had carnal knowledge of Victor's fiancee? How does he have a female in his past who looks like Nicole?
I am really sad about what they have done to Chase.I don't see how he can stay in Salem.Too bad he will likely leave since the guy playing him is really good.
I am really looking forward to Ben/Abby and Lucas/Jennifer.I hope the latter story gets plenty of screen time.

Getting rid of Marlena's son to make room for the Hernandez clan of criminals is so fucked up.
I am really looking forward to seeing what happens with most of the Hernandez family.They should have kept GV/dropped Summer and Dario,cut back on Maggie,cut the photographs of Daniel,and limit mentions of Daniel by any character to once every six months as that have done for Bo and Will.

I guess they could give him some lines where he blathers on about being torn between his family and his job but I don't see the need.I'd rather take it as understood instead of him having the same type of conversation he had with Hope with every single family connection who commits a crime or is accused of committing a crime in Salem.
It's not understood because it doesn't exist onscreen. As I said earlier, it's not just the writing. It's being written and played like Justin has no connection to these people outside of being the DA.
I was only speaking for myself.Its understood by me.We are all entitled to an opinion.In my opinion Justin is not behaving like an ass in dealing with Steve's case so I will just agree to disagree with you and others who believe he is acting like an ass and I will say no more on the subject.Well,atleast no more today.

I was merely pointing out that the evidence in Steve's case it more clear cut since there are impartial witnesses in Ava's death but there are no impartial witnesses to what happened between Hope and Dr.Malcom.Hope and Stefano,or Chase and Ciara.
Right. But all of that is beside the point we're making. If Ava had done absolutely nothing and Steve had walked into a room full of people and shot Ava in the head in front of them, Justin should still have some conflict about the situation and how it affects his family.

The situations with Hope and Chase were different.I don't see how Justin can over look that Steve in the room alone with Ava moments after she died and immediately confessed to the police officer that he killed her.
Nobody's saying he should overlook it. Just not be an ass about it.
I guess I just don't equate Justin's behavior with being an ass.

LMAO @ Kayla wanting Justin to schedule surgery for the stick up his butt.
I didn't agree, I think he needs a massive enema to remove the shit he's full of...I mean he's so fair and impartial...

I mean he lets Hope off
He acts like there's no case against Chase
and then
He draws a target on Steve, and it seemed just so much about what Steve supposedly did. ugh :drunk:

Tobin and Drake were totally awesome today. The really cast a perfect guy to be creepy, insane, violent dad. Jigsaw is fantastic.

I know a lot of people are upset with Justin but ignore him for a minute and look at the law. Ava was a loon, no question. Still she was in a hospital bed and at the exact moment of her murder no threat to anyone. In the eyes of the law what Joey/Steve did is premeditated murder. It's pretty black and white. It's Belle's job to argue extenuating circumstances, the threat she posed to Kayla but for Justin as the DA he's got to follow the law and prosecute Steve.

Steve I adore you. Taking the fall for your son and then putting yourself further out there to do whatever is necessary to rescue your friend and partner John. I also really love that Kayla is upset John's missing. In my little world they're still bother and sister and I appreciate her worry and concern.

Joey you're an idiot. Of course it's a good idea to confess to murder to a girl you barely know.

Marlena looks like she's barely holding it together as the proof that no one knows where John is begins to sink in. Oh man when she gets a target to vent all that anger, fear, worry on, watch out.

I didn't even mind the Hernandez clan. Really a great episode. Can't wait to see how the rest of this John story plays out.
I agree with every point you raised.Especially concerning Justin.I find it refreshing that he is actually doing his job in an ethical manner.

Happy to see Doug and Julie are being used more.
I cannot get over how much I love the fact that John's father's name is Yo Ling.I am also surprised the writers choose to keep the woman who gave him up and was willing to betray him as his mother.Perhaps the grandparents explain Belle's behavior.

Okay so Rafe discovers something in Yo's labyrinth on the 22nd and Mama Hernandez is reunited with her fam in the 23rd...im gonna throw out that Mama Hernandez is what he finds in the labyrinth and that is why it is taking her two weeks to get to Salem...it would make sense of having Gabi state in her phone call that Mama Hernandez left for Salem two weeks ago.
I don't know why but I judy love the words " Yo Ling's labyrinth".I hope we see a lot of it.Cannot wait to see what Rafe discovers.I will definitely be watching.
I for one am looking forward to the arrival of Mama Hernandez in Salem.I hope she is a decent actress.I want to see the family dynamic when she meets with Rafe,Gabi,
little Arianna,Dario,and Eduardo.Also wonder if there will be any mention of Arianna's death and its impact on the family.

the writers definitely ruined Hopes character, can't stand her and she gets away with murder but gets to arrest chase?? Ridiculous
I like Hope but hate that the writers had her murder an unarmed wheel chair bound Stefano.I really don't understand how anyone thought that was a great idea. I am happy they did not have Ciara (or Hope)physically assault Chase.Once Ciara told Hope of the rape,Hope did the right thing by calling for other officers to arrest him. I do wonder whether the fact that Chase was in restraints and had to be cut loose before he could be handcuffed and/or the kidnapping of Chase by Claire,Joey,and Theo will be mentioned by anyone.
I think Hope's presence was necessary today.

In regards to rape, someone who breaks into a house (or a car) and rapes the person inside will likely face a first degree charge, while someone who slips a roofie into a drink and rapes the person who lacks the ability to consent will face a lesser degree. Just as somebody who plans and then carries out a murder (first degree) will face a different charge than the person who murders somebody in the heat of passion (second degree).

I was reading the list of charges per state on the RAINN site, and my impression is that rape degrees aren't decided by whether it's premeditated or spontaneous. My impression was that it's about the level of physical violence included with the rape ... and the age or mental awareness of the victim. .. and if there is anything like a prison guard or doctor breaking a trusted relationship of care.
Thats my understanding as well.There are degrees of sexual assault depending on the type of physical contact (fondling,penetration,etc),the parties involved such as those who cannot consent because of their age or mental capacity,and/or whether there is a position of trust such as teacher/student,correctional staff/prisoner,etc..

So happy to see Arianna with Gabi and Marlena and to hear the latter disuss Will and keeping his memory alive with his daughter.I have been so pissed to hear so much about Daniel after his death and so little about Bo and Will.

Weird that JJ choes to rely on Chad's paid staff to locate Ben rather than the authorities.I am happy that JJ chose to ignore Chad's wishes and did what he thought was best for his sister and nephew.
