i still can't buy that arianna could be an undercover narcotics officer. for heaven's sake, she TASTED the product when it was delivered to her. narcotics officers never, EVER, EVER do this. they have kits to test the purity of a drug, and what kind of drug it is. they would never stick their finger in a pile of drugs and then stick their finger in their mouth.

^^^ I agree luvpumpkns.

It's also ridiculous to me that if she were an undercover officer, that this sting operation would be run out of the Brady Pub. Then again, these writers don't seem to be concerned with believability.

That's exactly why I think she is undercover. Of all the places to deal drugs, who in their right mind would choose the Police Commissioner's family restaurant? Also, why did she just happen to move to that section of Salem at the same time Rafe did? Yea, she tasted the product, but I've seen that very thing on cop shows before. This is Days, though, so it's entirely possible that she is the world's worst drug dealer, or the worst DEA agent. It has to be one or the other, and both are equally possible on this show.

i find it pretty funny that this idiot wouldn't take two seconds to explain to sami what happened to emily, but he'll spend all this time and brain power snooping on ej, sami and nicole and their children's births. what an asshat.

thanks for posting!
I thank that the reason he can not tell sami the whole truth is because he is covering something for his sister. I don't know this for sure but I bet it does.

Add to that when Rafe went to tell her goodbye at the Pub he asked her if she wanted to come with him - she replied that she liked it there, had a great job, blah, blah, blah...

Presuming Rafe was protecting her cover when Emily was killed wouldn't he know it if she were still working undercover now? Or at least suspect it?

another clue for me that didn't point to her being an undercover agent was that she told rafe she went away to 'find herself' after emily died. that threw up a 'rehab' flag for me. it sounded like she was involved in drugs, rafe knew it, then she went away and pretended to get clean, or really did get clean, but now she's relapsed.

i definitely see everyone's points, and honestly, especially now that LH is coming into the role, i'm sure arianna will end up being an undercover cop. i still hate it, though. we have enough good guys in town, and bad guys trying to be good guys.

I have read a lot of posts about 'I wish the baby switch storyline would end already'...and now we have the beginning of the end with Rafe doing some investigating and there are complaints that he shouldn't be interfering. If not Rafe then who?

Nicole has had a million opportunities to confess and she ain't doing it - also she can't do it now as Stephano would punish her...
EJ is a twit. Nicole not only acted really suspiciously but got that rubber belly past EJ for 6 months. He's too busy thinking about Sami/Grace..and things he cannot change.
Brady is trying to keep the secret
Mia wants to keep the secret
Dr Baker wants to milk it for all its worth
Sami has no clue and is grieving over the loss of Grace and now Rafe
Lucas has his hands full with a wife in a coma and thinks the Ejami baby died when Grace died and he's seen no suspicious behaviour from Nicole...
Chloe 'knows' everything but she's in a coma until further notice

On the other hand:
Rafe has seen Nicole grieve over Grace by going back to the hospital
Rafe has seen Nicole mourning at Grace's grave
Rafe Knows that Nicole has not been honest about how she knows Mia
Rafe knows that Mia and Brady are connected and Brady and Nicole have history
Rafe knows that Mia interupted the Ejole wedding
Rafe knows that Dr Baker didn't want to know why Rafe wanted him to keep Sami's secret...and he actually said...'Why am I worried?'
Rafe knows that when Grace was in hospital, someone had been in there saying they were Grace's mother
Rafe can't get a sensible explanation out of Nicole when he asks her why she continues to be upset about Grace
Rafe knows that Mia isn't a virgin [conversation with Will]

Rafe worked for the FBI and being alert to stuff that doesn't add-up or make sense is what he did as a career and from what they have mentioned was top of his class - therefore good at it. So investigating is natural and asking twenty questions is natural. Rafe often apologises for being like that with Will. If you watch carefully Roman does the same thing if you reflect on the scenes with him and Sami when she was telling him that she had adopted Grace it was question after question, info on Meredith, questions etc. They are all cops.

This is an extremely tangled deception as only 2 people now have the whole up to date story and that is Nicole and Stephano - even Doc Baker won't know that Grace is dead yet, and the others mentioned above only have missing pieces of the puzzle. And I am not sure if even Nicole has the whole story....

No one has as much clues as Rafe. EJ interestingly started to investigate Doc Baker and stopped, has seen Nicole upset over Grace and disappearing, has been suspicious of Mia, Brady hanging around and he has not got a clue! So rather than wait on him continue to go from rant to suspicion and not follow through :sleep: - I say go Rafe and move this storyline along please! :jedi:
I couldn't agree with you more... Rafe is the one to put the clues together. Someone on this thread mentioned , why are they showing so much of Galen Gering...duhhh..Because he is clearly one of the hottest guys around (and ,YES, he can also act). Never watched Passions, so I had no idea who he was when he started at Days. But the TPTB are definitely showcasing him :)

Unfortunately...... I'd rather watch Pookie expose Nicole, but I guess it will be Rafe. More reason not to watch. And the ratings keep sliding... lower and lower every week.

The ratings for all soaps are sliding and not what they once were. Soaps are a dying breed. Even so, Days ratings are better than they were last year and I don't think Days worries about all of the ratings, just the ones that influence the sponsors.

Rafe is not obsessive and he's not weird. AT least he has a brain and knows that something isn't right about Nicole greiving so much for Grace. He's a cop it's what he does and i'm glad he's investigating cause he will finally let the truth be known about Sydney and end this nightmare. And why would he involve Sami when he doesn't have all the details or even know exactly what Nicole is hiding, Rafe is the kind of guy that's gonna have his facts before he tells Sami anything. I am not mad at Rafe for getting a clue, it beats being duped by a woman who faked her pregnancy. And if you guys listen to Rafe talk about Emily with Arianna or maybe to himself you'd know that he's trying to protect someone, it's in his nature to protect it's part of who Rafe is, it has nothing to do with being a jerk and not just telling Sami there is so much more to the story as Nicole said.
I agree and don't forget, he was in the Dimera mansion when Nicole was faking her pregnancy. He might have seen her fake rubber belly while he was there and had suspicions all along. He is not obsessive /weird or a psycho. Cops are taught to question and investigate everything they don't think is right--- it's normal for him to do this. And,I agree, why would he tell Sami anything before he is sure? He would just get her hopes up, maybe for nothing and she has been through enough tragedy already to add to it. Remember, Rafe told Sami that he does not do things impulsively--- he thinks them through first and that is what he is doing with this situation.
Rafe's instincts are telling him that Sami may not be safe and he is staying because he has to protect her-- he loves her too much not to.

Frankly, I don't thing they show enough of Rafe (GG). Heck yes they are showcasing him and why not? He is popular, hot and a good actor. He and Sami are the best thing DAYS has had in a long, long time!!!!

Oh, yes, show Rafe and Safe every day. That way the show will be cancelled for sure. They have their fans, but they've caused more people to stop watching than anything else. And this is not an Ejami board by far. Neither is Sony. People just don't like them, among other storylines. They do nothing for the show's benefit. I like GG as a person, he's a very nice guy. Maybe without Sami he'll do better on the show. He's good looking, but that's about it for me.

Unless it is your job to do in depth interviews with everyone who stops watching the show you cannot know who causes viewers to switch off. Sami and Rafe have a romance which even when they are on is only 6-8 minutes of the eppy [and not even on everday] isn't enough reason for a show to go down in ratings - particularly as Rafe isn't abusing Sami in anyway. I didn't watch through the Santeen stuff but many posters here have used the same argument that that destroyed the ratings as many found it boring and couldn't get into it.

Anyway back to topic. It makes sense to me for Rafe to be interested and investigating because he loves Sami and she gave birth to Syndey/Grace during the time they were in hiding from the killer. And someone has to piece the clues together and he's the only cop or ex-cop close enough to the story to investigate in the way he has been doing.

Sami and Rafe have a romance which even when they are on is only 6-8 minutes of the eppy [and not even on everday] isn't enough reason for a show to go down in ratings - particularly as Rafe isn't abusing Sami in anyway. I didn't watch through the Santeen stuff but many posters here have used the same argument that that destroyed the ratings as many found it boring and couldn't get into it.

Anyway back to topic. It makes sense to me for Rafe to be interested and investigating because he loves Sami and she gave birth to Syndey/Grace during the time they were in hiding from the killer. And someone has to piece the clues together and he's the only cop or ex-cop close enough to the story to investigate in the way he has been doing.
I don't need to do interviews. I read the boards. Even on NBC, wihich is pretty much a Safe board, you will find plenty of posts from people who have stopped watching. And I agree about the Santeen storyline. It was boring - but Ejami certainly aren't.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deepcan't do it now as Stephano would punish her...
EJ is a twit. Nicole not only acted really suspiciously but got that rubber belly past EJ for 6 months. He's too busy thinking about Sami/Grace..and things he cannot change.
Brady is trying to keep the secret
Mia wants to keep the secret
Dr Baker wants to milk it for all its worth
Sami has no clue and is grieving over the loss of Grace and now Rafe
Lucas has his hands full with a wife in a coma and thinks the Ejami baby died when Grace died and he's seen no suspicious behaviour from Nicole...
Chloe 'knows' everything but she's in a coma until further notice

On the other hand:
Rafe has seen Nicole grieve over Grace by going back to the hospital
Rafe has seen Nicole mourning at Grace's grave
Rafe Knows that Nicole has not been honest about how she knows Mia
Rafe knows that Mia and Brady are connected and Brady and Nicole have history
Rafe knows that Mia interupted the Ejole wedding
Rafe knows that Dr Baker didn't want to know why Rafe wanted him to keep Sami's secret...and he actually said...'Why am I worried?'
Rafe knows that when Grace was in hospital, someone had been in there saying they were Grace's mother
Rafe can't get a sensible explanation out of Nicole when he asks her why she continues to be upset about Grace
Rafe knows that Mia isn't a virgin [conversation with Will]

Rafe worked for the FBI and being alert to stuff that doesn't add-up or make sense is what he did as a career and from what they have mentioned was top of his class - therefore good at it. So investigating is natural and asking twenty questions is natural. Rafe often apologises for being like that with Will. If you watch carefully Roman does the same thing if you reflect on the scenes with him and Sami when she was telling him that she had adopted Grace it was question after question, info on Meredith, questions etc. They are all cops.

This is an extremely tangled deception as only 2 people now have the whole up to date story and that is Nicole and Stephano - even Doc Baker won't know that Grace is dead yet, and the others mentioned above only have missing pieces of the puzzle. And I am not sure if even Nicole has the whole story....

No one has as much clues as Rafe. EJ interestingly started to investigate Doc Baker and stopped, has seen Nicole upset over Grace and disappearing, has been suspicious of Mia, Brady hanging around and he has not are

Many left when John and Marlena left, many left when Steve and Kayla left - and the show is still going on. Whoever has left since Sami and Rafe started their romance will have the same effect if not less than the impact of whoever left when the two Supercouples left the show. Days is 3rd place overall which isn't a bad position to be in IMO. As long as I can remember Y & R. BB and GH have held the top 3 slots so athough not perfect for Days it's not bad.

We will have to see what the introduction of Chapell does and if she brings some GL fans with her. No doubt the Passion guy's brought viewers too - even if it was to replenish all the ones who said they were going when J & M and S & K left because the ratings felt little impact as a result.

Anyway back to topic. I am glad Rafe has FBI training so that he can tap into classified websites, hospital computers and whatever else he's going to do to move the switch story along. It is also doing something I know some were keen to see and that is him interacting with different cast members. I like the scenes with Abe, Lexi and Theo and then Melanie. GG is not just gorgeous to look at his a good actor too and I really enjoy watching him. Of course I love watching Ali and GG onscreen together even more. They seem to really have fun working together and it shows. :wub:
