Jane - excellent analysis on the Bope marriage and nobody wanting to make the first move...i see that too. It is frustrating but I am glad that the marriage is all messed up before anything with Carly develops.

I FLOVED Rafe and Stefano! I loved Rafe's questions to Stefano and Steffie laughing at putting a hit out on Rafe was funny. It's weird at how I have warmed up to Rafe recently...maybe it is because I am impressed at all the work he is doing while the actual parents sit around throwing themselves a pity party.

It is so damn weird to me that EJ hears his father spill about how much he loves him and all that he would do for him, then he sees Nicole she tells him that she still loves him and would do anything for him...yet he shuns them both for giving him his child and kisses Safe's ass? Sami who hated him so much that she denied him his child until she died, and Rafe who intended to adopt her?
THAT is why I need Ej to be behind the kidnapping...so I don't lose all respect for him. Apologizing to Rafe for upsetting Arianna was unbelievable. Can the real Ej please stand up?

I thought Ej and Nicole were awesome together in the jail cell. I love Ej when he is in his powerful mode...just friggin sexy! "playing hard to get, sweetheart?" - now THAT is the EJ I know and love!

I also love Ari and EJ...and again it bothers me she is so damn smug (must get it from her brother) that she condemns Nicole for lying and needs her to be in jail where Ari herself lied about something big and was in jail. The only reason I feel Ari is so hell bent on trashing Nicole is because of her jealousy of Brady...I dont even think Ari has ever met Nicole.

I was freaked out by Carly's corpse and the big sprig of baby's breath in her hair. Nasty. Love the story though.

Oh, and Anna. I am still confused by the fall on the head and the cold baby thing, but it is nice to see her finally revealed...now maybe we can see who, if anyone, she is working with.
Pretty good week!

I don't think soaps ever tell menopause stories for women because then that eliminates a woman's possibility for a who's the daddy storyline.

I mean hell they had Marlena pregnant what was it? Like five years ago?
They could do a perimenopause story, where she could still get pregnant and still have all the issues that come with menopause. I'd be down with that as long as they tell the story from the character's POVs--right or wrong--and don't turn it into a Public Service Annoucement.

I was thinking that the freezing baby thing was contrasted with Sami being in a nice warm fireplace heated house and Nicole being distraught to make the audience more sympathetic for Nicole and whatever future baby plan they have for her.

I thought EJ was just screwing with Rafe with that apology, maybe just to get the wheels turning in Rafe's head that Ari is on his radar.

By future baby, you mean Sydney??!? ;)

I could go a really long time and not watch another Days character be pregnant!

I agree. That apology was a scam. Even the look on his face showed that, and Rafe's answer to him was unrealistic,too, seeing that he told EJ just recently to stay away from his sister.

EJ was messing with Rafe for sure. There was no other reason to mention it. Just to kinda put it out there he has been talking to Arianna. Now Rafe will mention it to her. All part of EJ's master plan.

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

I totally agree. EJ is letting it be known to Rafe that he and Ari have been 'chatting'. ;)

And I think I say this every week - but WHO the hell dresses Ali Sweeney so terribly? It's not only the style that's bad - the things they put her in are either a. wrong for her body type, b. outdated, or c. too immature (I'm sorry, the Blair Waldorf-wannabe headbands have got to go!). Sami was annoying, as usual.
:hail:
I think this consistently. Is wardrobe trying to imply that Sami is wholesome? Well if falls on deaf ears and offended eyes.
Maybe she makes suggestions for Sami's attire..... :unsure:

Have no idea. Not sure that they would make Sydney Nicole's baby right off the bat, it might depend on how she is redeemed or if the writers think she needs redeeming at all. IMO, Nicole doesn't need to be redeemed in the sense of prison, she's already been redeemed by loving (as warped as it may be) Sydney and for me SydNic was golden. Doesn't mean I wouldn't mind EJ torturing her but I'm afraid to even want that. It just was really weird that the fire place scene was done while Syd was freezing, Sami is uncharacteristaclly calm while Nicole is sobbing her eyes out. It makes me wonder if Sami is in cahoots with Anna.

As for another character being pregnant, it got me thinking about Hope's deal and if she were perimenopausal, they could give her a big oopsie! pregnancy, I think there's a term for that "menopause baby". At the same time, one of the other Salemites could be dealing with fertility issues say Danloe or even Nicole. just thinking out loud...I know it's a ugh-s/l with having more pregnancies and Danloe, lol.

But what I don't get is why. I realize this show is set in a small town, but that never affects soap opera style. Look at Kate. Look at Hope - Hope is dressed exactly how Kristian would in real life: LA chic (designer jeans, blazers, cute tops etc.). All contemporary brands, as well.

Like that leather coat/blazer thing Sami had on the other? Where the hell did they even buy that? Tabi's ? lol.

By contemporary brand, do you mean HER brand? LOL Because of lot of what she wears is from her line. Loved the necklace Friday. Wish I could afford it!

I was thinking the reason behind Anna falling and the house getting so cold is because they are going to have Sydney get sick and Anna will have to contact her accomplice because the baby needs medical attention. Maybe that's how they are going to reveal the next twist. I also noticed the twin they used for Sydney in Friday's episode looked very red around her eyes, the way babies often look when they are sick.

No, I mean like Seven for all Mankind, J Brand, Trovata, Milly, etc. I recognize a ton of stuff she wears when looking around the Neiman Marcus contemporary section, LoL. Sami used to be dressed in a TON of Juicy Couture, but they dropped that look for this weird, outdated bad jean, button up and sweater look.

Oh, yeah, KA does wear her own jewelery - that's right.

Gads, it just looks like clothes to me (spoken as the person who shops at Kohl's and Old Navy. More bang for the buck that way :D ). I do know, though, she has worn her own line, too.
Since Sami just passed $50,000 off on Nicole, Sami probably can't afford Neiman-Marcus anyway. And, as somewith with toddlers, she SHOULDN'T be wearing anything but Target and Walmart! At least around the kids.

^LOL, lady, you crack me up!
But you forget that Sami hasn't seen or even mentioned those kids of hers in eons so she could wear Juicy if she wanted...

ps - i love Kohl's!
