Thanks, Mason. Love the music, but the fake suspension thing is so JERish. Most of the show Sami just stands there not saying anything, while the rest fights and repeats the same questions again and again never getting an answer. Stupid. And John so reminded me Rafe in this clip. They both have the exact same kind of calm, monotonous delivery. No wonder people think Safe are the new Jarlena.

I can't stand Rafe, he sounds like such a retard when he talks, so rusty.

I liked the scenes Stefano had with Lexie, Abe and Theo. Especially when Stefano almost started to cry when he talked to Lexie about Theo. I just wish their scenes had been longer.

Nicole: I was with Sami. She is a mess thanks to you. Heartbroken, blubbering, red face mess.
Stefano: Uuhhhhh, what an image.

LMAO :D

i really loved that stefano called nicole out, asking her if she wanted a gold star because she regrets what she did. i kind of agree in a round-about way--nicole either needs to shit or get off the pot. i love nicole, but if she's really sorry, she'll just admit what she did. she's clearly not that sorry, so i liked stefano's attitude that nicole would have to choose ruining her own life if she wanted to do right by sami.

i also feel sorry for sami. it was hard watching her scenes with nicole. it's so rare for sami to trust and confide in a woman, and i have to admit i'm a sucker for female friendships. i like it when the girls confide in each other. so it's hard watching sami befriend her when i know she's going to be crushed by nicole's deception later.

is is just me or was the abe and lexie stuff totally random for anyone else? it's like the show forgot about them as a family unit for a few months and are trying to reintroduce them. i thought it was weird.

They have been used as filler for years :(

i almost don't mind when they have their own isolated family scenes(like lexie finding out about theo getting into a minstream school the other day) but today was different. i guess lexie and abe were being used today to reinforce the idea that stefano cares about his grandkids and rafe really cared about grace, but the way the writers went about it felt forced for some reason. i found it very odd that abe was traipsing over the dimera mansion all smiles to deliver a sixth month birthday gift for sydney. i don't know...it just didn't work for me at all.

I agree, luv. While I am finding remorseful Nicole an interesting twist in her character - at least someone on the damn show is - befriending Sami and feeling regret needs to be solved instead of wallowing in it. And really, EJ isn't so much a keeper anymore...so I guess the only thing that is holding her back is losing Sydney...so I can see why she is hesitant.
Nicole needs to be reminded not so much that EJ will be angry or Sami is devestated about Rafe, but that Sydney will be taken away.
I can't wait to see how it will all play out!

The Lexie stuff is and isn't random to me. It's strange that she hasn't cut off all ties to Stefano and EJ due to various reasons, I could buy her being torn more if she had had a more solid relationship with these two in the past. It's also weird to celebrate half birthdays but I guess people do it. I think it's the writers way of reminding us that Grace and Syd were conceived at the same time and are the same age, I think this will come into play later.

The best thing that could happen to Theo is to have Stefano raise him. Lexie freaked out more over the toy than Theo did. I liked Stefano in these scenes today, it shows him as ruthless but also human.

Love nurturing Nicole! The scene between Sami and Nicole had some good elements at play, much better than the Chloe-Nicole relationship.

EJ, EJ, EJ...he sure is a prize. What would an episode be like without EJ demanding where Nicole has been, yelling at her, or his 20 questions.

She did with Stefano in the past.

I think it's even worse than Chloe-Nicole.

Yeah, I remember the whole baby switch stuff back then and i wasn't really convince then either. Maybe because I missed the Lex-stef relationship from the very beginning, might have made a difference.

Oh Lucas. You made Aunt Maggie cry! Great scene! I do feel for Lucas as everything has been such an embarrassment to his character. i love his anger.
And holy crap! I couldn't put my finger on why I can't get into Safe, but when I saw Lumi today, it became clear. AS doesn't need to sell Lumi...she is relaxed, they are fun together and adlib well with each other. When she is with Safe, she is trying so hard to sell them that it seems forced. I know AS and GG are friends, but with BD, they come off as such a team. When Lucas isn't constantly yelling at Sami, I think I am a fan of Lumi...moreso than Safe.
BD looked great today too in that suit. Not sure why he is in a suit, but he wore it well. Loved their conversation about Chloe.
And I think that Sami's interest in Emily is more about her being nosy and needing to know everything than fearing her/her kids safety.
And Rafe and Arianna's conversation confirmed that Rafe is covering for Ari over him being a murderer. I am so over Rafe's big secret. So dumb.

Why is Joe Isuzu working at the Salem PD? I did finally love a Bope scene, even the one with Victor. And Justin's entrance was pretty cool. I forgot that today was his first day.

And of course, i am still loving Dr. Daniel's quest for the truth and Kate's little digs...it will get old though if it doesn't progress.

Good show today.

David Leisure is the District Attorney. It looks like his new thing is appearing on soaps since he did a stint on Y&R earlier this year.

I have to say that I'm loving some of the colors they have been putting the men in recently. Bo's shirt just pops on screen!

I think Lucas was a little too harsh on Maggie. I get that he was upset but his words were really mean.

Ewww, I hate it. And I hate that Bo always wears shirt with tie and suit jacket these days. He looks much better in casual.

Did anyone else think the bail money was unrealisticly high? Sami's bail money during Franco's murder was 1 million. Daniel's bail money is 60 million (!) and this is just attempted murder.
