May Sweeps Preview

"It's a circus, it really is a circus," previews Executive Producer Ken Corday. "I'm very excited. You're going to see faces popping up that you'd never expect, people crossing over that you'd never expect."

EJ/Sami/Rafe/Stefano/Anna: With this story, Dena Higley has taken the cards of the baby-switch saga, tossed them into the air, re-shuffled and dealt them and "it's great." Rafe leaves Salem in search of Anna. He finally tracks her down and demands to know who paid her to kidnap Sydney. In South America, Anna is stunned when she bumps into a familiar face -- Calliope! Meanwhile, Rafe ends up in a South American jail and his cellmate is another familiar face. Back in Salem, EJ tries to keep his feelings for Sami a secret. Naturally, Sami is drawn to EJ, but she still misses Rafe.

Phillip/Melanie/Nathan/Stephanie/Chloe/Carly/Daniel: This story will lead to lots of unexpected ripples. Phillip feels extreme guilt after he has sex with Chloe. Carly figures out that Chloe cheated on Daniel and Carly is a truth-teller. Carly threatens to tell Daniel the truth if Chloe doesn't. Meanwhile, Vivian still has her hands in the mix and she offers to help Chloe remove Carly from her life for good. Meanwhile, Melanie finds out that Stephanie trashed her birth control pills and she accuses her of trying to trap Nathan. Stephanie will take a darker turn in May. She's vindictive and she plays a convincing victim.

Hope/Dr. Baker/Arianna/Brady/Nicole: Hope's new saga really gets off the ground in May. She's acting strange -- nothing like the Hope we've seen in the past. There are mysterious muggings taking place all over Salem and everyone's getting whacked over the head. Hope is the mugger. Meanwhile, Arianna gets arrested which strains her relationship with Brady. Nicole comes face-to-face with Dr. Baker. Says Corday, "John Callahan is great. Dr. Baker is so much fun and it's a color we don't have on the show."

Kate/Stefano/Madeline/Will/Mia/Chad/Gabi: Viewers will learn that Madeline has a past with Kate and Stefano. She threatens to reveal a secret if they don't stay away from her family. Meanwhile, Will finds an old picture of Kate and Madeline together and he takes it to Chad. "Secrets will come from there that will be held for years to come... big stuff. It doesn't appear to be that way; it just seems like something from the past, but there's more to it than that."

Vivian/Victor/Maggie: Vivian shocks Victor with an impromptu wedding, but will it actually take place? Vivian is a psycho. Completely bonkers.

Alice: Salem is devastated when Alice's health takes a turn for the worse. "I think this will be the best memorial that has ever been done on a soap for an actor. But it really gets going in June."

50 views in 3 minutes, damn that's a lot.

These sound pretty good and I can't wait for Alice's Memorial!

I can't stand Corday, but I am pleasantly surprised, at least so far, how the show is dealing with the passing of Frances Reid.

EJ/Rafe/Sami are not great Cordray. :flipoff: Its the same recyled shit from two years ago. They just replaced Lucas with Rafe. I DONT CARE. :blah: :blah: :blah: Sami has f..... for EJ but still wants Rafe. I wish they would kill Sami off and end this boring shit. they obviously get that we dont get the Sami appeal. So fire AS and we might get something new here. If not. Im out.

Why isn't Bo in the May Previews?
These sound boring! Don't like the Hope stuff! I don't see a good May sweeps!
I don't see the show getting any good ratings out of this!
What about Bo and Hope's anniversary?
These don't mention Bo's return.
So Hope won't be herself for the Alice tribute?
That sucks!
She should be with Bo during this tribute!
The shows getting worse and worse!
Why would they change Hope's character? They really don't care about their longtime fans do they!
I'm not interested in Hope with Dr Baker at all! These writers suck!

There's no mention of Shane in the May Sweeps? That's odd.

I will comment more on the previews later but I believe Shane is who Rafe meets in the South American prison.

Agreed.

I wouldn't want them to put everything in these previews anyway.

Oh dear. Are they bringing back Horton the Tiger for Alice's memorial?

Is this supposed to read Sami is drawn to EJ but she still misses Rafe?

Who shocks who? And how does Maggie fit in?

(Sorry to give you grief for any typos Kenny, I'm just confused)

In any event, I'm actually very intrigued to learn who is in the South American jail. Eugene? Tony?

Melanie can fuck off bitching about Stephanie "trapping" Nathan with a baby. Bitch you trapped Phillip in a marriage when you weren't even sure if you really wanted him. Go Badass Stephanie go.

LOL at pathetic Arianna getting arrested for being the mugger. As if!! First, they want us to believe she was a drug dealer sent to prison and now that she's a mugging suspect? :lol: Whatever, I'm wondering if Nicole finds out about things but has Baker and Hope set up Arianna?

Corday talking about secrets lasting YEARS scares me.

Here's hoping Psycho Vivian finds a way to intersect with the Hope story. If Chloe gets tricked into trying to kill Carly just because of Carly's threats she's officially too dumb to live.

I miss Bo. :(

I wonder if there's any chance Shane is Rafe's cellmate in South America? Do we know anything at all about what he'll be doing? I know Rafe wouldn't know Shane (presumably) but maybe Corday just meant "familiar face" as in, familiar to viewers, not necessarily familiar to Rafe.

Some of this sounds good (Hope, Dr. Baker, Phloe, Nicole, maybe Kate/Madeline/Stefano). Looking forward to the Alice memorial storyline and the returns. I can just FF Sami grudgingly allowing herself to be somewhat attracted to EJ while still pining for Rafe.

Thanks for posting!

You have a good point there. I hadn't really thought about the impact of Hope being Gina when Gran passes away. Or not being herself when Jen returns either.

Bummer.

Yeah, I don't get that, with their one-year renewal.

This Hope story better not last a year or days won't get renewed!
I wonder if Corday's looked at the ratings? Days is a sinking ship!
