Nicole Walker


You know what's amazing is how people can scheme, lie, commit horrible crimes but when the tables are turned and somebody does it to them, they can't handle it. I love watching EJ handle being lied to, being schemed, handled being manipulated. I mean it doesn't feel good does it EJ. LOL. That's how it always is with characters like EJ, Nicole, and Sami. STefano is the same way. He'd blow a gasket if anybody does half the things he did to others. You can dish it out but you can't take it. That's usually how it goes. Just funny.

I think Days needs to address the Mickey issue. They never show him and that void really henders any real storyline for Maggie. I know they can't do a death storyline for him because of the necessity to use Frances Reid and her inability to appear, but couldn't they simply write it in that Mickey died at some point in the past (although they've never shown it) and simply say that Maggie is now a widow. They did something similar with the character of Marge Bergman on SFT years ago when her portrayer died unexpectedly. They stopped referring to her for several months and then her husband Stu made mention that Marge had died some months earlier. Unless the show can drag John Clarke out of retirement to play Mickey, I think this is the only real option for Maggie. Then, if Days is intent on a Nathan/Melanie romance, they really should've had it established that Victor approved of Melanie and Philip and tries to put an end to Nathan/Melanie so that Philip can have Melanie which would put Victor into conflict with Maggie -- and might spark a romantic liason.

Melanie and nathan are cute together but they are too cutesy. They did have a hot almost kiss in Maggies kitchen, I guess hearing Melanie say 'porn star' gets Nathan hot.

Matt, I almost like your scenario of of Victor meddling in Phillips love life, conflicting with Maggie but my heart is set on something between Vic and Caroline.

I hope they dont "proceed" with Brady and Ari, there is no spark there. I dont get a cheerleader vibe from Ari but I get innoncence, I don't think Ari needs to be rough and tumble in order to be a drug dealer. I think they are going with the Weeds angle for her. However, they need to drop the charades and mystery when it comes to this character, all it manages to do is bore and annoy me.

Talk about an inappropriate kiss between Chad and Nicole, yikes!

James needs to find a different way of expressing where EJ is emotionally, he should punch a wall or throw a bottle rather than these wierd mannerisms.

Strangely, I actually see a lot more chemistry between Martsolf and Hartley on DAYS than I ever did on PASSIONS.

On a scale of 0-10 what are you seeing? Passions 1 and Days 2?

Maybe I'm not seeing it because I see no reason to invest in them only to have a triangle between Brady, Ari and Nicole that's on the horizon.

Well, considering I saw ZERO chemistry between them on PASSIONS, the mere fact that I'm seeing any chemistry at all between them now is an improvement in and of itself, LoL.

I saw more chem with them on Passions then on Days. I was never a big ET fan so I honestly thought LH had the best chemistry with Justin Hartley who played Fox Crane. However when it comes to FT and LH, LH has more chemistry with Eric Martsolf(Brady). FT was just flat and completely lifeless. They looked good together though but that's about it. Brady is boring. I think LH needs a storyline that will add some excitement to her character. Can't have two boring characters together.

HF - when is this "inappropriate kiss" that you speak of between Nicole and Chad? Is it tomorrow? Did I miss it today? I walked out before the show ended, and I might have missed it.

All Sami talked about today was the things that a mother does to protect her child and the irrational, crazy love mothers have for their kids...then we have Nicole putting the moves on Chad. So I guess that it is supposed to show us that it isn't so much nasty older woman whoring herself out, but doing what she has to do for her baby.
Which is a nice change.
All women ever talk about on this show are "I'd do anything for my baby"...well, here is crazy ass Nicole ACTUALLY doing it. Just for trying to seduce Chad, she should keep the baby. LOL! I hate that kid.

Maybe I dreamed it and I'm sicker than I thought. I thought I saw them kiss, lol.

Yeah, I think they are really focusing in the mother lion aspect because they have Sami's speech to ej, then Sami educating Mia on the ways of men, Mia whoring her self out to Chad and Nicole whoring herself out to Nicole. All in all, so far, nicole's not coming off that bad to me. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

With the exception of Chad, Brady and Arianna, it was a pretty good episode. I liked the Victor scene at Stefano's beside. The idea of these two amazingly powerful men having to confront their own mortality is chilling.

I DESPISE the character of Chad. They should put Mia, Chad and Stephanie in a love triangle just so I could FF all the characters I hate at once.

I'm not even trying to figure out character's motivations for anything any more. Everyone is being hypocritical to some extent, and I'm tired of all this "my baby" stuff, especially from Mia. She gave that baby up the second it cleared her uterus...she has no right to say "my baby" fifty times an episode. As for Chad and his "my baby" routine, it's hard to take him serious when he was willing to give her up in order to date lifeless Mia. I did agree with Nicole when she suggested everyone do what is best for Sydney--only, of course, she said that assuming she is best for Syd.

I'm glad Sami pointed out that EJ is acting the way he is out of defensiveness and hurt. He was extremely cold and cruel regarding Sydney last week, and while I understand he's doing it to distance himself from her, it was still shocking to hear him refer to her as "that thing". And, yeah, EJ has done a lot of horrible things to people but he's not going to take that into consideration now when he himself is someone's victim. None of us would. Who, in the midst of losing a child, would stop and think "Yes, this is a painful, awful situation but since I did all those bad things in the past, I deserve it". Human nature doesn't work that way.

So glad Stefano is beginning to wake up!

Who is Nathan exactly?

And does Brady know that Nicole switched the babies, or does he still believe EJ and Nicole's baby is Mia's?

Sorry, just catching up ... I'm still on October 5th, lol. Thank god for YouTube. As a side note from some early October eps, I gotta say that EJ and Kate have great chemistry - I'm really looking forward to everyone living in that house!

Ick. While I am 100% in favor of "Dead Mickey", there's no need to fabricate a past death of a major legacy character. We have seen Maggie all year long and they have referenced Mickey as recently as last month. Tom Horton died off-screen (Alice found that he had died in his sleep upstairs) and they had a big funeral with returned characters. Having a big on-screen funeral for Mickey is probably not necessary. Alice doesn't have to be seen and it would be a good excuse to return Melissa and Sarah to Salem.

I think it would have been cool if they said no-one could date at the hospital since a psycho nurse sued the chief of staff for sexual harrassment when he broke off with her 10 years ago to start a fling with the hospital's head of PR. That would have been a nice reference to history.

Monday was ok. I'm not really feeling the LH/EM chemistry either. Perhaps its just me, but EM seems very hammy in his scenes with LH. On Friday, he even did jazz hands. It just seemed like filler to me. I dont mind them hooking up if there was chemistry, but Nicole & Brady seem to have it in spades. Just suprised, given they were a couple for many years on Passions (which I could never get into...)

Agree with everyone that Nathan/Melanie were cute though.

Victor/Lexie was a nice interaction. I was racking my brain for a time (outside of the hospital) where those 2 have interacted, and I'm sure I am forgetting something but I can't recall any scenes or storylines. I even remember back in 2001, when Lexie had her big DiMera party for Hope and her baby switch came out, Nicole & Victor were the only residents of Salem not invited lol.

EM seems to channel a little too much of Drake H. into his acting sometimes, he tends to lay on the soap opera cheese a little thick with certain other characters too.

Does anyone else think Crystal Chappell looks bored on DAYS? It looks like she's barely trying in these scenes. The only other place I've been able to watch Chappell was as Olivia on GL and she seemed so much more alive over there.
