Am I the only one who thinks the teens got much better? Maybe someone talked with them or the director just gave them a better directions, but I noticed much more energy in Mia and Will on friday and her fight with Chad today was good as well. I love when she gets sarcastic instead of whiny. And her flirting with Will on friday was sort of cute, but I still see more chemistry between her and Chad. I think it helps Casey is an experienced actor because he is able to carry Taylor and made her react. With Dylan, they are both struggling and seems to be afraid to go into a deeper emotions.



I must also confess Iīm totally on the Phillip/Stephanie train again. The scenes with them just fooling around in the bed and Steph wanting the popsicle were just so sweet and romantic. I donīt even mind their latest breakup, because this time itīs something perfectly understanable. Phillip did a mistake, huge mistake, and he has to pay for it. Stephanie has all the rights in the world to be angry at guy who proposed her two times and claims she is the only one fo him, yet has sex with another girl only few days after they split, both swearing they are still in love with the other.

The change in Brady/Arianna dynamic is simply amazing. I love we see them working as a team now. And Brady is the best older non-brother Melanie could ask for. His reaction when Melanie told him about the sex tape was priceless.

The teens- I just don't feel anybody in the group except Chad. I loved the Maggie and Chad confrontation. Gotta love Nichole running around trying to cover her ass again.

Rafe/Nichole-I actually like them, the bathroom scene tickled me.

Brady/Ari at the roach motel trying to relieve the world of the sex tape. I like Brady in kick ass mode.

The Quad- I love Philip and Stephanie and it does not matter how many times the break up I just want them together more. The Steph/Mel scenes made me hurt for both girls. Gotta loves Mel's first impulse to lie threw her teeth, but I nearly dropped mine when she said she did not know how many times she told Philip no. Hello Mel that would be one. Poor Nathan no telling what he thinks between the Steph/Mel fight the night he and Mel were on their non-date, being decked by Philip and now the sex tape video.

Phillip and Stephanie look great together, they are both very attractive people. She just seems to have a real sparkle in her eyes in scenes with Nathan that isn't there with Phillip.

As for Chad and Will, the only other credit Casey (Chad) has is a bit part on Wizards of Waverly which is a Disney show. Dylan (Will) actually has a lot of credits and has been working from a very early age. He has more credits than most of the younger cast, so maybe it is just the age factor??

Thanks for that Days blast from the past clip. That is actually the very first Days episode I watched. I was switching channels and stumbled upon Bo on his motorcycle racing to the church. I was hooked from that point on.

As gross as the idea of the sex tape was, it's playing out fairly well, the facial expression from the reveal are worth it. MB was the weaker of the three (SH, MB, MH) but she was still great and SH rocked all her scenes today and with JKJ. I felt bad for everyone.

LOL at candystripers looking at porn in the middle of the day while at work.

Brady was pretty good too and the look on EM's face made me wonder if the laptop was really showing the love scene.

It's a nice change of pace to have Sami in the dark while Nicole and Rafe are working on their secret agendas.

The thing with Chad is that CD seems charasmatic.

I think it was really showing the scene because it was a real media player in the closeups of the display and the slider showing the progress moved. The whole thing was pretty realistic up to the moment when Brady deleted the video from the internet.

Good show today. The friendship between Nicole and Sami doesn't make sense based on the level of enmity they've always had, but I don't really care because I'm enjoying them together. They've always had good frienemy chemistry. I know it won't last anyway because at some point Sami will learn about the baby switch and will be out for Nicole's blood.

Rafe is still annoying. However, I like the new version of Arianna. Loved Brady throwing the pornographer around the motel room. The scene with Melanie and Brady was good, although I wish she could have managed to come up with a few tears. Brady is a much better fit as her big brother than Max ever was.

The Stephanie/Philip break-up scene #99 was saved by the heartbroken, tragic face of Shelley Henning. I actually felt sorry for her, although I don't like the Ross/Rachel "we were on a break" redux. Part of me thinks Steph is being hypocritical because she has broken up with Philip over and over again and repeatedly told him they had no chance together. But at the same time, Philip simply used Melanie for sex and he knew it and Melanie knew it and she should never have gone to that motel room with him. Nathan is the only innocent party in this quad.

Mia actually managed to keep her eyes open today! I was still bored with the teen scenes, but at least she gave off some energy. But the star of today's show was Sydney. That baby is so cute!

I thought Rafe looked like a total moron when he barged into the bathroom after Nicole. I understand that Rafe is suspicious of Nicole and probably doubted that she was really sick, but he looked like an idiot when he came into the bathroom whiel Nicole was washing her hands and looked in the toilet. That was a really bad scene.

One other thing I hate about Sami and Nicole as friends is Sami suddenly totally trusting Nicole. Even if they two are friends right now, Sami needs to always be suspicious of Nicole and should be. For her to be defending Nicole to Rafe is ridiculous. Maybe have her defend Nicole to Rafe, but then at least show a look of doubt on Sami's face afterwards so she doesn't look like a total idiot. For some reason when two people on this show, who used to be sworn enemies, become friends, they totally forget the horrible things they used to do to each other. It's annoying.

I loved Brady in those scenes with the motel manager. He took charge and went into full John Black mode.

Lindsey Hartley as Arianna is love! :wub:

These writers need to turn Mia into a 24/7 bitch. Forget about Kinsey. Get rid of her, fill her spot as the show's teen bitch, and bring in some new girl to play Salem's ingenue. Taylor Spreitler does so much better when she's given bitchy and mean material rather than the whiney pathetic sap they've been writing her as. The way she spoke to Chad and then Nicole, Mia finally came alive.

I avoided the hospital scenes between Stephanie, Melanie, Nathan and Philip. I just don't care, knowing that Philip and Stephanie will be back together by or before the end of the month. What's the point?

I agree. For as much as she blasted Nicole to Rafe only 2 months ago, she sure has forgotten all that she said, not to mention their long history of being enemies. Just the fact that she is a Dimera should send up about 100 red flags for Sami.
I was wondering if Sami said what she said to Rafe in front of Nicole yesterday just to hurt him. She cannot actually think that she should trust Nicole over Rafe. Doesn't even make sense.

i feel really sorry for melanie. to give her credit, i truly think she believed that she and philip would be together. if anything, philip is kind of the jerk in the situation. also, nathan's disappointment in melanie came out of left field, but she also didn't try to defend herself.

i'm curious as to how all the info rafe has dicovered is going to come out without the actual baby switch being revealed until later, since i assume this whole thing will come to a head shortly before AZ's maternity leave. i had forgotten about sister teresa having info on 'mary' and finally, rafe's involvement makes sense! yay! i'm also glad to see that sami is suspicious, but i don't like that she got roman involved. sami's kids are in europe, so she needs to do some sleuthing on her own.

hope sucks. bringing dean over and flaunting the whole reward thing in bo's face was so childish and uncalled for. i can't wait for the moment when hope discovers her precious dean was really the mastermind behind the kidnapping.

I hate how Sami just sat there as Nicole told her that she couldn't trust Rafe. Sami, look who you're talking to! What, now that they're friends, Sami is supposed to forget about everything they've done to each other in the past? It's so annoying! I don't mind Sami and Nicole being friends, but when there's a chance to remind the characters and the viewers that these two weren't always friends, the writers need to take that chance. It makes sense, and when they don't, it just makes the characters look stupid. In this case, Sami.

What is Roman's beef with Rafe? I don't get it. :shrug:

I'm glad Philip suspected Melanie could be capable of the sex tape. At least not everyone has forgotten the horrible person Melanie used to be.

What is the point of Philip and Stephanie anymore? I no longer care and these two had so much potential. At least I still like the couple in my own little fan fiction. I brought them together back in January, and I think they broke up once. ONCE! :lol:

Lindsey Hartley was amazing today. She really held her own in those scenes with John Aniston. I would love to see more scenes between Arianna and Victor. I could totally see a Bo/Carly/Victor vibe coming, only this time with Brady and Arianna. To keep Arianna away from Brady, Victor takes her for himself instead. After Hartley and Aniston's scenes today, I would go for it.

I hate seeing Nick Stabile as Dean. There was so much potential in the character and actor. It's been wasted. :shame:

ICAM with the Hope thing, she is being ridiculous now. Now she has invited him into her house and all is going to blow up and I guess that is gonna be Bo's fault now too.

I'm just watching the show from the 8th right now. Rafe was a real jackass for running after Nicole in the bathroom. As soon as the toilet flushed, he should've known what was going down.

Well, they've fucked the sami-nicole relationship all to hell. IDK why I am surprised when this show has a habit of making me regret wishing for something.

Speaking of wishes...I loved the scene between Hope, Dean, Stephanie and Bo today, I just wish I could have seen Dean and Stephanie in the same shot. I agree with everyone Hope is being a royal bitch to Bo but can't Bo at least pretend not to be upset about the reward in front of company?

I'm enjoying confrontational Rafe, GG busts out these lines so pan faced and it works. Ari really is acting pregnant now, even though she doesn't really look it, I wonder how they are going to work around it. What ever happened to Roman digging up dirt on Emily?

I wasn't too impressed with the Brianna break up but Brady was great when he commanded Ari to get out, you could see anger and pain all mixed in his face. Best line: "it's something you only need to experience once". Of course, seeing LH is like seeing angels sing and she busted out those trademark tears--hooray! :)

LH must be giving SH crying lessons because SH was pretty good. Nathan's reaction to the whole thing in Maggies kitchen was like a knife, but I dont think he's a jerk for saying it. Phillip on the other hand, suspecting Melanie put the tape on the net--total asshole, but that's what I expected from Phillip. He really doesn't think too highly of Melanie. Molly could have at least put some saline drops in her eyes, but the scene where Nathan left her in Maggie's kitchen was impactful when she was left standing all alone.

The only thing I can say about Sami is that possibly the writers are trying to show how messed up Sami's mind really is right now and give a reason for her going to the convent. If she were thinking clearly, she would never have taken up with Nicole. Besides her history with Nicole, she is married to EJ now and that isn't a good sign, plus Lucas and Rafe have both warned her about Nicole, and she isn't following the advice from either of them-- men that she trusted.

With Roman--I was so surprised at him on Wednesday. He, just two weeks ago, told Rafe that he knew he loved Sami very much and thought he was the only man he had known who could love Sami the way she needed to be loved. Now he tells her that maybe Nicole is right and he doesn't know if he trusts Rafe or not?? I am thinking what the heck is this!! I realize he wants Sami to make up her own mind about Rafe, and that is good, but he could have been a little bit more supportive----- UNLESS-- Rafe is working for him and he can't say anything and needs to act like he is clueless.

Thank goodness Brady busted in on EJ and Sami when he did. I dont think I can take another one of EJ's idiotic outbursts of whatever it is he does when he's angry/greiving.

LOL at Phillip and his "kindred spirits" line.
