Loved the Nicole and Phillip scenes..I'm really intrigued by the Trent and Nicole connection..Looks like we might actually get something interesting, as opposed to the nothingness that we got from Kate and Martino's past..

Also i'm liking this Max storyline, but just wish they wouldn't have it on everyday..Thats when things start getting repeative..

I'm super annoyed with Stephanie! All of her concerns about where he is, why he's missing, regarding him keeping secrets from her, being in a grumpy mood etc. Its evident she loves him and is worried for his sake, but its getting so old. She needs to let him keep being an ass, take Steve's advice, and give him space.

GET EM STEPH!!

I really enjoyed today.

The Max story was even decent today. Enjoyed Stephanie and Nick together (and the scenes at the end they had with Bo and Hope). The scenes at the hotel had some tension to them. Roscoe is starting to really come alive. This Trent/Nicole thing is creepy and interesting and Nicole asking Philip for protection gave me chills. I'm really excited for where this could go. Glad seeing Bo confront Philip too about the fire and drugs. I like seeing Bo and Hope working but I wish they had more. Their scenes with John were good too.

Also nice seeing the Joe story get some focus and I enjoyed Stephanie kind of bringing up the Ava story. I wish Dena would've taken that chance to go into the Steve/Ava stuff but I digress. Glad they mentioned Steve not being there for Stephanie growing up either. Love little things like that. It's nice to see more Steve and Kayla.

Enjoyed the brief Philip/Chloe interaction and the little Nicole/Chloe tidbit.

John/Ava was my favorite. Tamara seemed to be channeling Carly Corinthros today. Loved seeing Angelo again and the way he and Eddie handled Paul. Linden Ashby is great and handled all this great. Glad this is building to some good stuff finally. Good tension and action here. I also was really happy when Ava mentioned combining forces with John. That is an intriguing thought. Major potential there. I still hope Tamara stays. She's really been one of the bright spots of late and is so fun to watch.

Solid episode today. This week has been pretty interesting so far.

Ok, more RB in Max's scenes and I can stand them. I just love him. He is really taking a part which could be so one note and making it into something fantastic. Same for Linden Ashby (is that right?) as Paul. That part is even less dimensional and I love how desperate he is.

Really upset at how fast the phorgan kiss was. I can deal with the crying and the melodramatic lines but I wanted to see a long drawn out kiss. How come the cameraman seem to go on break when Chan are making out and when I see a couple I want to kiss they cut away far too quickly?

Hee good for John walking away from Marlena. Not sure if anyone noticed but his line "I'm moving on, do the same" is recycled dialogue from the Chick conversation last week. Oh, Days, we knew you were into being green but this is ridiculous!

Isn't it funny (or sad) I can watch BD and JS in scenes together without Sami? Maybe because having AS around has BD relying too much on his shouting. He does so much better when he is calmer and trying to sound logical.

Loved the Nicole/Ava talk again. I'm very intrigued about her past with Trent but scared Days is going to disappoint me.

The Phorgan kiss was just bad. They're setting it up like they're both using each other. Morgan didn't kiss him because she wanted him or was attracted to him. It was because she wants her precious daddy to be kept safe. Which Philip has already refused to do despite Paul literally begging him to. Paul's death will be on Philip's head. He could have protected Paul, but he didn't. Plus, Philip is the reason Paul's in danger in the first place. This is game over for Phorgan before they ever even get started.

I was loving EJ and Nicole today. I'm excited to watch them on tomorrow's show.

I also enjoyed Ava and Nicole today. It's too bad TB is leaving in August, because I'm sort of liking Ava as this mob princess that takes care of her friends and takes out her enemies.

But I still can't watch Max. I don't care who he's having a scene with, I just can't watch it.

I know people here doesn´t like Dena (and I agree the show really dragged from the moment Lucas returned till last week), but one thing she is doing right is the character interaction. She is not afraid to mix up and she is finding so many interesting and working combinations. The friendship between Ava and Nicol was exactly what both characters needed. I´m at the point I would really like Nicol and EJ together and even Lucas/Chloe aren´t so awkward how I thought. John/Ava, again, what an interesting combination and powerfull couple. For a little while it looked like Ava´s Vitalli roots will be completely forgotten, but yesterday she was almost like a godfather´s daughter when she just stood there with John and enjoyed Paul´s rough interogation. Much better than when she was sneaking into Kayla´s room and tried to appologize.

Anyway, I really like this week and the stories but you can see the breakthrough writers are gone, because it almost seem like there is one neverending script for an entire week or even longer just edited between shows. Characters appear and disappear in the middle of an episode, some cliffhangers are completely off and episodes end at really weird places. Unfortunatelly, DAYS writers credit is now like cheapest of cheap list and it shows.

IMO, this is exactly the reason why Phorgan have a future. This will be huge when it blows into Phillip´s face and that´s exactly what the show likes. I´m pretty sure atleast for summer it wil be Phorgan/Chlocas. That´s even what the new promo pictures show.

Me too, Tripp! I noticed today when Lucas and EJ were chatting that I stopped what I was doing and got all into it. I can really handle Lucas when he isn't yelling or acting like a fool. Almost liked he stepped up to EJ's level now that he isn't smothered by Sami and her hysterics.

Loved Nicole and Ava! Loved the friendship and just love Tamara's bad assness!

I was thinking with the whole Trent/Max thing and Trent/Nicole thing...if the Stax travelling to Paris wasn't happening, I would love to Max and Nicole to bond over the Trent. Stax needs to go and I hate Max with her, and I hate Stephanie when she is with him.

I don't get the whole EJ going for Nicole for comfort thing...
Lucas just told EJ that Sami has feeling for him and Lucas can't get over what Sami has done. So with all of this good news for EJ, he goes off to bang Nicole? Why?

I like John and Ava. Ava fits NuJohn better than Marlena, and I like the way Ava relates/laughs/talks with John, over Marlena's constant disapproval and surprise at what he says.

Overall, I liked todays show. :P

I do. Unlike Sami, Nicole accepts and appreciates E.J. for who he really is - not a fantasy that she wants him to live up to. She's the one person E.J. can talk to who he knows won't judge him.

Oh, and forgot Phorgan!
This is stuff good soap couples have. Morgan needs comfort and for some reason trusts Phillip even though she was attacking him last week and her daddy has been warning her to stay away.
So she kisses him, and he can't say no...boy, Phillip has been getting some all over the place lately.

I think maybe Phillip will pay Paul to go away and fake his death for his safety. It will look like he died. Morgan will turn to Phillip for comfort again, and soon realize that Phillip was responsible for his death just as Phillip falls in love with her. Morgan does the whole "I will never forgive you for this" line. He tries to get her back and it is no use until he fesses up that Paul isn't dead but faked his death. Big romance ensues!

Ok, I will say it. Fire Deidre, give Tamara her salary and keep her. She is so much better with John and she has so much more potential than goody saint Marlena. She and John could really rock Salem off.

You know, as much as my Ejami friends would kill me for saying this...when Sami isn't around, EJ and Nicole are pretty awesome together. If they do go back to Lumi, Nicole and EJ could have a pretty wild romance!
Sami has been written for shit lately, and EJ and Nicole have a chemistry that is different. If Nicole is going to stick around, seems she could have her own big coupleness thrown in there.

Although the more I think about it, Nicole and Max would be totally interesting! Max has been so dominating that I think Nicole could handle it!

Bingo!! I thought there interaction was excellent. Of the two couple, Phorgan is the one that is very soapy and angsty. Once again it's all perception, because it also looks like Philip is using Chloe big time for sex.

why is it i find myself hating most of the grande dames of salem aka hope and marlena and love ava and nicole? if hopes nose gets any more up in the air she is going to be the recipient of a plop of bird poo as she walks around..and marlena needs to give up on the swoony lambchop eyes by now..

i know john is about to give ava the boot, but she is much more loyal to him for the short time she has known him than lambchop eyes has been for ages.

Max's story is growing on me - but only because I think there is a tie in with Nicole and that intrigues me.
Nicole and EJ - well lets just say the chemistry has left the building - I saw the almost love scene and man it just wasn't all that. Not seductive or sensual at all. It was like the director told Ari and James to be bad at it.
